Scoots and Hunty met during the Great World-Wide Outbreak, while he was helping Firefly contain clickers for research. Two fireflies opened fire, but were soon murdered by the Hunter who snapped their necks. Scoots, running out of ammo, was left at the mercy of Hunty. Hunty seemingly spared Scoots, but was actually just there for the spaghetti in his pockets. Scoots befriended the hunter, feeding him fresh spaghetti everyday. Moving back to Jarate Town, safe from the zombies, he accepted Hunty into his home and added him to his pet gang of oddjobs.
