In this chapter, we learn a bit more about Mory culture. They don't "bury" their dead, they feed them to the trees that are their homes. Re-Sheshoo once again apologizes to William for his vote during William's "Trial of Life and Death". William explains why he holds no grudge against Ka' Sheshoo and Sheshoo accepts his explanation. We also learn that the Mory respect warriors of superior fighting ability and hold no grudge should such a warrior kill a relative in fair one-on-one battle. We also learn that the Mory use the blood brother symbolism that the Native Americans were known for doing. Once again, William is compared to the Mory savior, "The One Who Will Unify". Tyarza's anger with William subsides a bit when she hears the story of the meeting and sees the gift that the Ka'yno of Te'ka-Jy gives to William.
