"A Tranquility Frog. They're extraordinarily powerful, wise and perceptive beings."
-- The Silver Adept
A grateful gift given to the Silver Adept and her staff when they provided the Stone Sea Mages with a powerful device called the Key of Mang.
Some form of protective aura, or perhaps its mere presence is a major deterrent to mystical menaces. At least according to one of the Silver Adept's long-time house guardians. Unless of course, Silver Adept's house guardian is referring to some other new thing.
- So far, s/he has communicated with only a two word vocabulary, GOMPP! and GOMMP But it would seem that the interpretation is all in the tonality, pace, volume and other finer aspects of audio delivery. All of it on a much subtler, peaceful and refined level that human speech. The Silver Adept also hints at other communication methods when she instructs Orn on setting up living quarters for their newly acquired associate. In addition, there are runes displayed on the body that are perhaps more than just ornamentation. They do change over time, in both content and the intensity of their glowing attributes. It is also possible that they just find a way to communicate a message and it somehow is received.
- Both the Silver Adept and creator Kurt Busiek are on record stating "They can make their needs known to you, if you approach them with peace in your heart."
- On the Official Kurt Busiek Facebook Fan page, when a fan (Aaron Kashtan) asked Kurt Busiek for a Tranquility Frog on the grounds that he had been reading Astro City since 1996, Kurt said that there are only six Tranquility Frogs in all of reality, and that the fan would need to do more to earn one. Kurt added that the reason Tranquility Frogs are so scarce is because of the extreme amount of tranquility required to create one.
