{{RPG-section}}
  +
The placard outside [[Moli Regnana]]'s shop in Ratchet says "Familiars for the Rest of Us!" Moli invented the mechanical squirrel when she was feeling rather lonely one night, trying to program a pet to be utterly faithful to her.
  +
  +
The painfully cute and perky steam-powered result made her instantly rich, as everyone wanted one of these adorable, clanking "familiars." At first the squirrels merely followed the user, following a beacon that attached to the user's leg; but customers began asking her to add features, and the squirrel became more and more sophisticated.
  +
  +
Now the squirrel is still cute, and still follows its master, but it has two, needle-sharp retractable claws in each foot, and the tiny steam engine that powers it vents through the mouth.
  +
  +
Squirrels sold these days are also fitted with two homing transmitters, allowing the user to give one beacon to a companion. Thus, when a switch is triggered on the squirrel's hind foot, it follows the second transmitter, making it a stealthy messenger (Moli has also eliminated the worst of the clanking her invention made). The squirrel can follow a beacon up to fifty miles, moving at ten miles per hour. It is mostly watertight, but malfunctions if submerged in water.<ref>''[[More Magic and Mayhem]]'', pg. 184</ref>
