Elie notices the abscence of her nautilus amulet. Nikt doesn't say it but it appears that Rikter's little plan (see Page 62) had been discovered by someone with shaman knowledge, and the Nau was taken away. Nikt doesn't betray his brother by saying it, he just says Rikter has a lot to explain in the morning.

Comments:

Nikt looks totally beat. Poor kid.

Yes, that injury broke him. We'll never see the old Nikt again.

And if he thinks he's never going to heal -- being a hunter on a rocky island chain would be a terrible place for a bad leg injury.

There are lots of things you can do even with a bad leg. Nikt is a shaman's son, he could follow his father's steps, for example. And he always can be a cook, or a househusband, or even hunt, with traps at least.

It's more about pride. Nikt was very proud of being the chief's son, the elder twin, and a much better hunter and fighter than his brother. Now it seems to him he's just lost everything he liked in the world, became a "broken copy" of Rikter.
