Cerverid young are small, bald, and essentially helpless. They can only run away, although most creatures actively avoid them anyway. Magi, companions, and wild creatures alike become inexplicably afraid when in their presence, despite the hatchling doing nothing but standing nearby. Cerverid hatchlings appear to feed on this fear, becoming livelier in response. Perhaps most frightening is their silence; they make no cries of any kind, so they cannot be heard coming, although as they come closer a low howl begins to sound in the distance....

Occasionally when wandering the forest of Silva, you might hear a haunting howl unlike that of any creature you know. Magi often attribute these sounds to elk or direwolves, just heard from a distance echoing off trees, but few claim this with certainty. Local villagers tell many stories at night around the fire about the creatures that produce these eerie calls. They say they are forest monsters, evil spirits which feast on unwary travelers and the carcasses of farm animals which have died from fright. The little-seen creatures magi call cerverids may be the creatures to which the townsfolk refer, but no one in living memory has ever heard them utter a sound.
