Small and a bit cowardly, these rat-kin tend to be solitary scavengers or the bullied minions of stronger wilderkin. Encountered in their warrens, however, they can be aggressive, almost feral. As crows are drawn to shiny things, so are skavies to colorful and outlandish costumes, with each seeking to outdo the others in its scavenged regalia. Some skavie broods have turned to the Heresies to compensate for their unimposing physiques. Conclave scouts have reported seeing lone skavies trailed by skeletal or plague-carrying rats.
