Stellarum Wyrms are a curious breed that often stay high up in the atmosphere as they travel across the world. They seem to greatly enjoy visiting and experiencing different environments, only staying in one place for a short while before leaving to find somewhere new to explore. Sometimes these new adventures can lead to danger, and in such cases the Stellarum Wyrm has developed a way to quickly escape from anything that would try to trap or harm it. Stellarum Wyrms are capable of leaving a small piece of their liquid like tails behind that they maintain a psychic link with. This tail piece hardens and acts as an anchor that the wyrm and anyone with them can warp to at will by diving into the remainder of the wyrm’s tail. This trick is not just used to escape danger, but also to easily revisit places where they feel comfortable, safe, or that they just enjoy. Young adults can only maintain one anchor at a time, and if the anchor is destroyed or if they choose to cut their psychic connection to it, the wyrm can no longer warp to it. In their eagerness to visit new places, young adults will often abandon their old anchors and create a new anchor the moment their tails grow back. As they get older, they tend to maintain a single anchor for longer stretches of time. Elder wyrms have gained the mental strength to maintain more than one anchor, though even maintaining just two or three is considered an impressive feat amongst their kind. The most ancient of Stellarum Wyrms were said to have vast networks of anchors that they could warp between, but since such long lived creatures are so rarely found, there are doubts if they actually exist.

Additional information[]

So yep, I'll go ahead and confirm it now, Stellarum Wyrms were inspired completely by Stargate! (Special shout-out to the people who figured out their eggs resembled the DHD)

Here's their original design! Their design has changed a bit from their concept art which had a slightly different fin setup, mana crystals around it representing chevrons, and a body pattern that looked more like a wormhole going through space. It was a little too busy though so they were reworked into the sprite we have today. Thank you @spatio for helping me polish them up nice and pretty for everyone!

So some extra tidbits about these guys:
-If they deeply trust each other, they can synchronize with one another to use another wyrm's anchor as a warp point. This is most often seen in bonded pairs.
-The patterns on their fins reflect the night sky, though not necessarily the sky they are currently under.
-The liquid of their tails feels dense and cold
-There are no partial warps. Anyone or thing that enters the Stellarum's warp tail does not appear on the other side until the entirety of their being has entered the warp. If the anchor point is destroyed before they finish entering the warp tail, they are shot back out of the tail.

[...]And as a reminder, while these breeds were inspired by Stargate and Star Wars, that doesn't mean they're going to be compliant to the canon of Stargate and Star Wars. They're designed with nods to the series that inspired them, but were not made for those series, they were made to exist in the world of Dragon Cave. So try not to apply lore from Stargate and Star Wars to these guys as if it were fact.
