The Friends always liked working with hunters, because they tend to be arrogant, prideful, and easy to push in the direction of evil. One of their first efforts was with this cocky young warrior. The Friends manipulated him towards killing the bear they knew was Kenai, hoping they could eliminate one of Grandmother Willow's pet projects. However, they underestimated the forest spirit's power, and she protected Kenai, kept Atka from Jumping Off The Slippery Slope into villainhood, and quickly sent the Friends packing from this world. They haven't been very active here since, as there aren't enough powerful souls to warrant tangling with Grandmother Willow since.
