An Old Man in a Lean Season Edit
Ecta is an ambitious Scorpion-kinden who decides to hunt down the infamous Hokiak, another Scorpion who had fled the Dryclaw many years ago, when he had been expected to die. Ecta, and pair of companions, arive at Hokiak's shop in Myna and threatens that he will destroy it if Hokiak doesn't come to fight him. As a Scorpion, he has no honour and has come with a title of 8 henchmen and is planning an ambush, with the occupying Wasps turning a blind eye. But Hokiak is still a Scorpion himself, and Ecta's ambush is itself ambushed by two separate groups working on Hokiak's behalf. Ecta himself is shot through the neck by Soul Je.
