This fits well with the way I view a lot of Humakti devotees. For some reason I can't think about Humakt without the words "My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die." going through my head.

This discussion does lead to one question that has been bugging me for a while. Is it possible to be initiated to Humakt for a time (say, until the Lunars are driven from the area) and then leave his worship and pick someone more appropriate to a new life, say Barntar? I think its pretty obvious that this doesn't work for devotees, but for initiates I think its a real possibility. What about other Gods?
