The big misunderstanding hinged on the fact that Benji apparently had no scent to Stellan (and other lion shifters?)...Neumus, to Stellan, when discussing Benji: He smells like alpha mate to me. (p.27)Ok, so he has no scent only to his mates? But then!soldier, to Stellan, about finding Benji: Alpha, I don't mean to be impertinent, but why don't we just sniff him out? (p.93)Stellan: Because Benji doesn't have a scent.O_o So does he or doesn't he smell?
