I am aware by reading the description that the black wolves/porte wolves in the Montaigne book says that they were once normal wolves now driven insane by being brought through a porte walk. However, I have a character at my table that's a full blooded Pyeryem, and she can turn into a wolf to boot. The player's first reaction to animal related troubles (especially as Pyeryem) is to talk to them and try to reason with them.
So my core question is can a Pyeryem use their Speak knack to talk to a Porte Wolf? Just how far gone are they? Because even feral animals have a voice.
Edit: When the moment came I used Xabei's comment. I used the Intimidate action from Repartee whenever she tried to talk to it and expressed that its mind is simply a grindhouse of malice. In future adventures I will likely include siren whispers from beyond the gates.
I would also have have speaking with the crazed wolf have a Repartee effect on the player, most probably Taunt or Intimidate.
