Badgers are normally secretive creatures who are happiest in the quiet and solitude of night. Whilst digging extensions to their setts, they often find jewels and other odd things, but they are mostly content to live in family groups, enjoying each other's company; wealth means little to them.
When PnF was founded, a rumour spread through the pets that a spirit-badger had created the world in which they lived. Suddenly badgers were getting all kinds of visiting creatures wanting to know how the game of life should be played, what the Great Badger had planned for the future and whether all should eat worms in their efforts to be like Him.
Badgers responded in one of two ways. Some retreated further into their setts for fear that anyone might find out about their jewels, in which case they would never have any peace. Others accepted the challenge and went into the world as prophets, seeking to understand the rules of the game and to enlighten others as they strove to comprehend the thoughts of their creator, in whose image they had been made.
