Some time in the past, Little Baldy had a near-death experience. During their momentary torpor, the entire tribe was convinced that they had perished and “moved on”, and had begun to perform the traditional death rites.
Fortunately, the fallen sergal revived and came to, but not before their tribemates had already finished plucking a few clumps of hair from their scalp, a ritual seen earlier with Little Warrior a few pages ago. To this day, the hair from those spots has not grown back in — thus leading to their rather comical name.
Thinking back to that time, Little Baldy recounts that they had experienced a strange dream during the time of their close brush with death. Looking ahead, they remark that the landscape of the Hexnose Forest before them looks identical to their prior vision.
