When Unoka visited the Oracle, he was told that he was a failure because of his laziness. THis was a bad omen, Unoka's fate was sealed. He died alone full of shame in the Evil Forrest where the pathetic are left to die as to not offend the earth by being buried, "swelling which was an abomination to the earth goddess."
