Mohriors are nocturnal creatures, and they hold no love for humans. Still, hatchlings can sometimes be seen wandering around the castle at night, looking for a meal. Offering a mohrior hatchling food whenever you see it will encourage friendliness, and with time even trust. No matter how close the bond, though, they always flee back to the forest come dawn. It's no use chasing after them – mohriors are swift companions. Even the smallest mohrior is impossible to follow. They also leave no trail, as branches and leaves are untouched by their passing. Young mohriors are well known to use this to their advantage. All mohrior hatchlings delight in making trouble, and are very good at finding ways to do so. One particular skill of theirs is destroying signs and making false trails, to ensure that people get lost.

Every year, towns are bustling as people busy themselves with bringing in crops and preparing for the coming winter. It is an old tradition to leave offerings in the harvested fields, and almost every village does so. The food left behind are whatever the village has excess of – pumpkins, corn, and the like. These tributes always vanish come morning; stems, leaves, and all. The mohriors devour the plants with great speed, and whatever else they can find. Towns who do not give mohriors food find themselves plagued by the beasts. Mohriors are ravenous creatures, and their hunger is never satisfied. Just one can ruin an entire field. Fortunately, in return for a share of the bounty, mohriors are placated and do not eat crops at other times of the year. At the castle, excess fruits and vegetables are left out for mohriors every night. As soon as no one is around and darkness has fallen, these companions emerge and consume everything. These odd companions seem to eat anything – be it spoiled, cooked, or simply roots. It's rare to see a mohrior that is not eating, and they will eat anything around them, even cold, hard dirt if there is nothing else. Yet no matter how much they eat, these companions are always very thin. Should they see a person, they will stare at them with their jaws open, as if wondering to themselves if the person might make a suitable meal. Although no one has ever been injured by a mohrior, people always make sure food is available for them.
