    No, you agree with me (at least I think so). ;-) That is, I think that a Humakti (as he is legally dead) is outside normal Heortling society, but that doesn't mean he can't reenter society, in a different role, just as a stranger can be adopted into a clan. There is no one to back him until he finds someone: he gets no legal protection from his family (though they may still help him, if only because he still *looks* like their son [think of Martin Laurie's story about the coming home of Onslaught]), but he might get it from the chief, his lord.
