Suricata hatchlings are small enough to curl up in a magi's cupped palms, and it's a position they tend to enjoy. Within a few days of hatching, they're alert and nosy, investigating every new sound and movement. They grow quickly and can be taught even from a young age to help protect items or other creatures, or to carry messages. Adult suricata teach their hatchlings to be watchful as soon as possible, and magi will often turn around to find an entire family watching them, all lined up in a row on their hindquarters.

With their lean bodies, alert nature, and ability to blend in no matter what the surroundings or time of day, suricata make excellent spies, message carriers, and alarms. Many merchants use suricata to watch their stalls, shops, and warehouses, and those magi who don't want their business known often pass secret information through suricata messengers. When paired with a bigger creature, suricata can be used to help guard sheep and cattle, as they know almost instantly when something changes in their given territory and will alert their larger partner. Suricata themselves are not necessarily good or evil, but they don't often discriminate between who uses their services unless they're treated badly.
