Paervem hatchlings are sweet little things. They are not capable of producing the fumes that adult skunks do, and are quite harmless. Even though there are plenty of fully grown paervems around, these little ones prefer the company of their magi. One may be sitting down for dinner to discover their paervem hatchling has sneaked into a pocket of their robe and fallen fast asleep. These hatchlings are the size of kittens, and as such can easily go unnoticed. Another place to check for a paervem baby is inside of shoes, where they love to curl up.
If you're wandering about in the woods and see a white and black creature, it's best to check whether it has two tails or not. If it doesn't, run for it. Paervems are well known to spray terrible fumes at their attackers when surprised, and the smell lingers for days. Sometimes a direwolf or alphyn from the castle will foolishly come too close to a paervem, and get sprayed. When this happens, the poor animal is dragged off and doused with a multitude of spells to get rid of the stench. Paervems with two tails, however, are quite a different matter. These companions have the most interesting ability of being able to knock someone out with one of their sprays. The other spray is less used, and perhaps more dangerous. It is sweet smelling, red in color, and causes powerful feelings of lust. There's quite a black market on the stuff, and it's considered illegal to use. That doesn't stop some chefs from using it on special occasions, or a lovesick girl to sneak a vial into someone's cordial.
