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.
