He scampered down the muddy road, thankful for the torrential rain that kept the humans indoors. Skavars were commonly looked down upon by others as lesser creatures, and anything to keep the bare-skins away was a clemency to the oppressed species. However, the time for considering his lot in life was cut short by arrival at his destination. A small, but ornate house rose above him. It almost seemed to beg him to liberate its vast riches. He paused for a moment as he weighed the consequences.
After thinking better of it, the small creature raised a furry fist and knocked softly three times quickly, and twice more slowly. Before his knuckles left the polished oak surface, the door opened outwards, causing the skav to jump back in surprise. Warmth and light spilled out of the now wide-open portal, and the skav eagerly dashed into the dry building.
Before he could get past the threshold, a loud voice rang out, “stop!” The skav skidded to a halt a few feet inside the door and glanced over his shoulder for the source of the voice. A wide-eyed human wearing a very formal outfit stood next to the door. The skav tried to place the emotions on the man’s face. He was not very good with human expressions, but he thought that he saw a mixture of surprise, fear, hatred, and… constipation? Perhaps that was just the man’s usual expression.
