Kreed and Hanako were accompanying Lasa Rook on a journey to join Hood's army. The warrior removed the hide from a large cave-bear, killed by Hanako and presented its lower jaw to the young man as a trophy. Erelan then cooked the bear's tongue for breakfast. When they broke camp, he advised Hanako to take the fur. From the context, it seemed that Kreed had not known that Lasa had run off without telling her husbands where she was going.
