Tepary's father is a desert farmer specializing
in ancient seeds, so it's not surprising that Tep
is named after a bean. Tepary lives near an ancient
cliff dwelling called Picture House in New Mexico.
When Tepary spends the night watching the eclipse
of the moon at the ruin, he discovers pot-hunters.
After scaring off the intruders, Tep finds an
ancient flute. After playing the flute, he feels
strange and is transformed into a pack rat. From
then on, he becomes a pack rat each night.
