Upon entering the village, the sergal boy searches for his fellow Mole-Digger Tribe members. Finding no sign of them in the first few shelters he checks, he calls out the tribe’s name. Finally, he discovers the entire tribe of sergal children huddled together in a single house. He is greeted by a few of them, both verbally and with non-verbal sounds.
A tribe-mate calls him “chatty boy”, a title referring to his tendency to frequently speak using words. In comparison, Northern sergals in the early days of the Sieg clans usually did not have very wide vocabularies and often communicated with each other using simplistic animal-like noises. This is demonstrated by a few of the sergal children making short whines and cries similar in sound to puppies on Earth.
