While exploring the area around the covenant, Petre comes across an odd looking individual, like a boy, but with the legs of a goat, and ears of a horse. It turns it's head to look at Petre, then in the language of the animals it says "Brother of the woodlands, have these people captured you? Let me set you free, to return to the woods and live without their pens and their clothing. Did you come to this place to seek a mate? I will find you one, and we may return to the woods together."
At a slightly different time and place, this same creature approaches Anastasia. "Come young child of magic, do you wish to be forever chained to books and studies? Before your new owner has a chance to bind you with an initiation flee, come with me, let us go now to the woodlands."
