Extra update. It isn't much, but I hope it provides a little boost for those of us who need it right now.

As neat as a violent death can be, indeed.

Huh. Instant death penalty for name stealing. O_o Not even a fight.

And that's a lot of blood.

Aaaand thanks for the extra update. I didn't think of it, but it seems to help my general mood, indeed.

Lushaka's not very good at achieving non-fatal victories, unless sheer intimidation is enough.

Yes, I think I can see why. He's super fast but young and cannot boast with his sheer physique. If the false Lushaka knew him, this might have gone differently.

Hmmm... why would the dead guy want to steal the name of a youngster, of someone he really knew about nothing about? "Lushaka the arrowcatcher" must be a rather well-known or even notorious name in these lands. There may be more to it, but I'm not very good at guessing what.

Oh, the real Lushaka has made quite a name for himself, but he kind of disappeared for years (only came back recently) and that left the door wide open for things like impersonation.

I'm guessing really severe head trauma?! Wow.

It would fall into that general category, yeah.

Figured this guy was dead anyway, but man. Way to remove all doubt.

You can count on Lushaka to Get His Job Doneā„¢... when he's actually feeling up to the task.

I think you have successfully established Lushaka as "Someone You Do Not Mess Around With". Nicely done.

Now we will have to see if, at some future time, any of this fellow's family or associates become involved. I'd have included 'friends', except he doesn't seem the type to have any. ^_^

The question is, if they do cross paths with this guy's associates, how would either side know anything about each other? :o (Would the surviving human(s) start spreading rumors about how there was a fight between two Lushakas?)

I can see it happening in a few ways:

1) Jangkki and his pals are discussing their terrifying experience at some future time when they feel safe and are overheard by said family and associates who are trying to find out "Whatever happened to our Lushaka? No one has seen him lately,"

2) Family and associates hear there's a Lushaka traveling in the area and come to renew acquaintances, only to discover the true Arrowcatcher and begin inquiring about the peculiar similarity of names. "By the way, we're looking for someone who also goes by that name. Have you come across him?"

3) The true Lushaka discovers that, before encountering the fake, the fake had been up to other nefarious acts and so Lushaka must publicly act to undo the damage to his reputation -- necessarily spreading word that there had been someone else running around by that name. "But you won't be having trouble with him any more." It may even be that said associates were also involved in the nefarious acts and necessarily become involved in the resolution.

And I am sure there are many other plausible scenarios as well. Those would just be some examples.

Not to mention we don't know about Rencho customs for disposal of the dead. For all we know Lushaka might make a greatcoat from a massive pelt like that. "Hey! Is that my cousin you're wearing?!?" ^_^

Family is fairly unlikely, as they can't reproduce in this world for various reasons -- one of them being something in the atmosphere/water that's toxic to their newborns. But it's certainly possible that he'd made some acquaintances under the fake name!

You are the knowledgeable one and it is your world, so of course I agree completely. But of course, there is family, and there is Family. Fake Lushaka seems to have been of the kind of temperament that might well lend itself to, for example, involvement in some kind of tong. Who probably all hated him, but nonetheless have their own reputation to consider. ^_^
