Uricchin is a sentient little blob of Earth Dragon ear wax —one of a great many that crawl within the grottos that make the Earth Dragon's deep ear canals. Like all of them, he sports a small flame on his head and a single wick-like hair. The flame dims significantly when he is asleep or afraid.

Uricchin's species is affectionately referred to as a "candle-baby" by Meganeeans. It is, however, the oldest species in Meganeea after the Earth Dragon herself.

Uricchin is very deeply devoted to the Earth Dragon, but most especially to her child. He is young Faahvrigüo's confidante and his one small window to a world he does not yet fully comprehend.
