Rio tells it like it is but the catch could break Markesha’s heart.
The dangers that come with being a Coyote include everything from the usual threats of a desert environment to border guards. If a Coyote is discovered the border guards give them two choices:
- An X is carved into your hand and you’re dropped into the wastelands with no food or water
- Take a bullet to the head.
Many take the quicker death than be at the mercy of what the Outlanders call Mother Ash. Others pay their dues and “take the X” in the off chance the desert might show them pity.
