And this is something virtually unheard of before. Look at how happy they are to have found one! It's nothing as common as a squirrel.
Well, their surprise might be proof for their knowledge: They knew the thing and knew it should not speak common (which raises the question: What powerful, intelligent, rare creature does not speak common as default? A creature that is rare and smart is surely too interesting to interact with to not let it speak common as default).
