It should be noted that the wording is: "Clad in the guise of a young girl with a little black dog." So that doesn't necessary mean it actually was a young mortal girl. It may well have been a daemon.

It may be a reference to Oz, it may just be a random bit of lore GW threw in for the Craic. Or it may be Tzeentch tricking his own guardian for the sake of change, who knows.

Understanding Tzneetch fluff is like trying to find out how many licks it takes to get to the center of a tootsie roll pop- the world may never know. Just a coincidence that it was Mr.Owl? I think not.

Well the first thing that popped into my twisted mind was a gender change in reference to A Boy and His Dog (fallout anyone), but Wizard of Oz makes a lot more sense lol....

Life is good, most of the time...

It was Corax and Leman Russ.

Simple, all Corax has to do is put on a girly voice and a wig and Russ just had to get on all fours and bark once in a while. The Guardian of the Maze has no eyes, so the deception was simple.

Tzeentch is a pedophile (and a dog lover to boot!). I knew it.

It might be a pre reference to the changeling that is mention a bit later in the codex. I can definately see the changeling pulling a trick like that and since he is a tzeentch daemon anyway, he would probably have known the riddles answers easily.
