"You nerdy little dork." Her Jarvey said as it began to test the waters with her. It was only starting, as it was attempting to find the correct buttons to press to really irritate her.

"Oh," Alyssa said, almost shocked that those words came out of its mouth. She was sort of expecting it, but not that quickly. Over the next few minutes, she spent time attempting to understand the creature.

Barny wandered over and took one of the cages, the Jarvey let out a string of words that would have his mother's eyes big as saucers. It helped knowing that the creature really had no idea what it was saying beyond that it annoyed people. He returned to his desk and took out a notebook and started to sketch the creature, though the parts that the creature were trying to show him when it realized it was being drawn were... not parts that he really wanted to draw, but he finished the rough sketch and made some notes while ignoring what the Jarvey said.

Professor Temur watched closely, studying each of the students.

"Whatcha lookin' at you fuzzy-haired freak?!" she heard a screech to the side.

The Alaskan Malamute that had been sitting at the front of the class, sniffed at one of the cages as a Jarvey squeaked insults at it.

"Careful Lance, we don't want to upset our guests too much."

The Jarvey turned its attention to the woman, letting off a barrage of insults. He ended on a particular loud note about her bottom being larger than it should.

Frowning, Professor Temur waited until it was done before putting her boot at the bottom of the cage and sliding it under the desk. "Now," she cleared her throat, walking around to check on the students with Lance at her heels. "How are we doing. Mr. Price?" she stopped at Reginald first.

Pandora sat with her Jarvey in cage ignoring the insults coming out of its mouth. She had heard enough of those growing up she was good at hiding how much they bothered her until she was alone. Currently she was busy sketching it out and writing facts about the creature.

Barny wondered to himself how this would be going with a Slytherin only class. He'd seen a few things by now that he really wished he hadn't. He looked over at Reginald and wondered just how well they were going to reform while with Jennifer. He didn't want Jennifer to get hurt, but if he interfered, it wouldn't be giving her or Reg a chance to make it work. He looked over at Fiona and thought that maybe love was a kind of magic all it's own.

Nodding at Reginald's studies, the Professor continued to make her way around the room. She paused at another student's desk. "He's not too much trouble is he?"

"No worse than holidays at home." Pandora commented as she added finer details to her sketch.

"The Jarvey resembles an overgrown ferret, and is commonly found in Britain, Ireland, and North America. The Jarvey is capable of Human speech, although true conversation with a Jarvey is impossible. The creature uses short, usually rude, statements and phrases in an almost constant stream.

Jarveys live below ground, and their diet consists of moles, voles, rats, and Gnomes. Jarvey are particularly good at hunting Gnomes, and are sometimes employed to de-gnome a garden, although their methods are usually brutal.

A Franciscan monk, Brother Benedict, once had a run-in with a Jarvey in the grounds of his monastery. The Jarvey called him a "baldy", then bit him on the nose so hard that the Monk was excused from Vespers. However, the incident did call Brother Benedict's testimony into question when he relayed it, and the Friar wondered if he'd been drinking Brother Boniface's turnip wine."
