A sukia was sitting in his house when a woman dressed in bright colors came to his door. The woman explained that people were persecuting and trying to kill herself and her family, from the largest down to the smallest. She claimed that there was no reason for the persecution and begged for mercy and a decree of protection. The sukia listened to the woman and in response he decided that they should first smoke from a pipe before he made a decision. The reason that he decided to do this was that he had reason to believe that the woman and her family were actually snakes and smoke was known to kill snakes. The sukia lit the pipe and passed it to the woman. She began to smoke and instantly fell to the floor dead. The sukia did nothing to protect the family of the woman and decreed that the family of snakes were deserving of death.
