If you look closely enough, you’ll see a slightly stylish Higgledie among a group of Higgledies. This is the “Higgledie Leader.” There are various types of Higgledie Leaders.

—The Higgledie Leader brings together a big group of Higgledies. A circle can be made around the Fire Higgledies, and a special icon will be shown above the Higgledie Leader.

—If you issue an order to the Fire Higgledies, they will form a dome-shaped defense barrier around Evan.
