A long, long time ago, the weasels and stoats had a war. The stoats won this war and most of them became rich and powerful. The weasels became serfs, workers, underlings, servants and slaves. Stoats are much more vicious than most weasels. They are also much bigger and more powerful. Almost all stoats are used to living in mansions, palaces and houses but there are still some weasels who live in forests and fields. Those who do not inhabit forests and fields normally live in small villages.
