Hakoda was about to set off on his morning hunt with the other Water Tribe men; Hakhan was having good results with a particular breath hole; lot’s of turtle seals were taken there, which attracted polar bear dogs.  The pelts of the ferocious beasts were much sought after, and their flesh was sweet to the taste.  Hakoda was about to step into his boat when he felt something missing in his boot.  His favorite knife was gone.  He flashed a quick glare over at Bato; the man was fond of jokes, but he looked genuinely bewildered at the chief’s gaze.  Hakoda groaned before tramping back to his tent, where Becca was learning from Kya about how to be a woman in the Water Tribe.  He was utterly shocked when he pulled the seal skin away, revealing a naked Becca, her torso covered in hundreds of angry red burn marks.
