The priggish taxonomist is desperately hoping for inspiration to strike.

A creature bearing an uncanny resemblance to a cactuar appears to be in fine spirits.

A name, a name... I need a name for it─one that will stand the test of time as it passes through generation after generation! When you break it down, what's in a name, really?

Oh, hello. I didn't see you there. You're a familiar, I take it? Very good. But whose, I wonder...? Well, that's not important right now. You've ears enough to listen to my plight.

I'm tasked with a job of great import: nomenclature. Currently, I find myself facing down a sort of creative blockage in regards to this fellow's name.

This is a creature who has not only survived the vicious wilds of the Hungering Gardens, but has thrived in them thanks to its ossified spines. Thus it deserves a name befitting its rugged tenacity.

Despite its singularly unique physical properties, its creator never bothered to refer to it as anything besides its designation: Euros 310. I cannot abide so uninspired a name for a creation as remarkable as this.

But therein lies the rub─for all its captivating qualities, I've yet to hit upon a captivating name. I was just on my way to take a turn about the grounds to stimulate the creative juices, so to speak, but seeing you, I realize two heads may be better than one.

So, what do you say? Would you care to join me in my walk?
Will you join the taxonomist?
Sure. No, thank you.
Excellent. You, my quick-witted familiar friend, will be a boon indeed to my imagination. What say we take a quiet moment to cogitate beneath that large tree to the south of here?
Quest Accepted
That is a pity indeed. Well, should you change your mind, do speak to me again, won't you? I reckon I shall be laboring over this conundrum for quite some time.

Is not the sun-dappled forest floor a stunning sight? Is not the breeze so bracing as to lift the spirits? Is not the susurrus of the melanioi's whiskers so pleasant as to induce great thoughts?

Surely, with all the inspiration that surrounds us, you have been stirred into contemplation, too. Tell me, what is it you now focus so squarely upon?
What will you say?
The innumerable tasks that sit waiting to be done. Nothing that I can tell you about, I'm afraid.
So, even familiars have their fair share of woes. Might I suggest you take this moment to relax, then? Simply let the winds wash over you, the rustle of the leaves play in your ears, and just...think.
Euros 310 does as the taxonomist does, and falls into what appears to be deep, meditative thought.
Unburden yourself of the troubles that seem to be weighing you down. Allow yourself to just be for a moment─to just think.
Beneath the canopy of rustling leaves, time moves as if caught in treacle, providing you the perfect location to think great thoughts.
For a time, all you can hear is the breeze, like a calming whisper in your ears... All of a sudden, a groan invades your peace of mind.

Hmmm... Hmmmmmm... Created to survive in extreme weather conditions, whose adaptability is second to none... What would be a name suitable for such a creature?

I can practically feel genius on the tip of my tongue, and yet...nothing comes. Oh bother, this won't do, now will it? I hate to ask, but would you accompany me awhile longer? Come, let's away to a westerly waterfall.
Euros 310 seems to be enjoying the misty spray from the falls.

Ah, listen close. Can you hear it? A waterfall whose stream is at once ferocious and tender, whose spray kisses its surroundings in an affectionate pitter-patter? Inspiring indeed, and like to give rise to brilliance!

Yes, there is no place more perfect for the cogitation of this creature's name. Come. Stand with me and let us think on it.
Is this not an inspiring location? I'm certain we shall arrive at a befitting name for little Euros 310 here. Now let us take a moment or two to think so that we might draw inspiration from our surroundings.
Water droplets gleam like sun-kissed jewels on Euros 310's well-hydrated skin. You wager that were you to think about it now, you might be able to come up with a name.
Euros 310's beady eyes appear to scan its surroundings.

It is a creature that bears a strong resemblance to a plant... So, perhaps, Planticus? Hm, it's also a deal similar to a succulent... Aha! I've got it! Succulem! ...Oh goodness gracious, no. That's just foul.

I am afraid I am quite at a loss for names beyond the paltry few I've offered. Perhaps you could provide a fresh perspective? What is it you find most endearing about this creation?
What will you say?
Its sleek green skin. Its beady eyes. Its spiky head.

<gasp> Oh, that did the trick. Your astute observational skills have stirred my imagination, for I've come up with a very worthy name!

I must return to Poieten Oikos at once, and ensure that no other creation shares this nomenclature. You will not be too far behind, yes? You are due a suitable gift for the help you've provided, after all.

I must say I greatly enjoyed our time together. I believe nothing cultivates creativity quite like the sharing of ideas. So often I am forced to work alone, and though it pains me to admit this, it's not much fun to ponder in the silence of one's own company.

In fact, I credit you for the name I devised. All that remains now is to go to Peripeteia Krystalline, ensure there is no record of any similarly named creation, and appoint Euros 310 with its official name.

And should I hit another metaphorical roadblock, I shall remember to always ponder while perambulating! Thank you again for your help in this matter. It was most appreciated.
