He helps you out of the water and asks why are you trespassing on sacred tribal waters. You explain your quest for vengeance against the Bat war party. He says the Squarehead and Bat tribes are rivals and that he must take you to Never-Seen-the-Sun, the Squarehead chief, for council.
You agree to visit with the chief, as the tribe’s location isn’t much out of the way and you may be able to recruit a war party of Squarehead to join your quest.
You arrive at the chief’s cave late in the evening. After sharing a smoke with you, Never-Seen-the-Sun tells you that a Bat war party passed through this territory only four days ago.

You are unable to convince him to send several of his fine warriors with you, but he offers another way to help you. He will lend you one of his Reticulated Panthers, which can carry you swiftly in pursuit of your prey. You accept the offer and promise to repay the chief with scalps of his enemy.
