0011225: Waiting Pet Becomes Recruit When Fast Traveling
If your pet is asked the "favor" to "Wait here", and you fast travel - on return, your pet will show as a Recruit, much like a wandering beast quest
1. Generate adventurer with a pet
2. Ask pet "favor" to "wait here"
3. Fast travel for a bit, return to spot where you asked pet to leave
4. Pet will show in grey text as "[Name], [Animal] Recruit"
No tags attached.

If you can provide a save to show this that would be great. Either to DFFD or somewhere else where people can access it.

I do believe that editing the [CAPTAIN] position on the entity you're currently playing as to only take a creature class of the sentients in your civ eliminates this issue, since it tackles animal recruits appearing at all in any context like on 0006708

Here you go! Turns out they show up in convo/look as the pet name, but when you talk to them as Recruit. http://dffd.bay12games.com/file.php?id=14674 [^]
