How Chief Thunder joined the Tourney

Unable to let go of his grief and consumed by the mysteries that still surround the loss of his brother Eagle, Hinmatoom (Thunder) strikes an accord with an unfamiliar figure in exchange for recovering Eagle’s remains so that he can be given a traditional burial and both can find peace.

Raiding Ultratech labs, Chief Thunder found evidence indicating that Eagle might still live. He learned that a Goodra was being target by Ultratech to make human/Goodra hybrids.
