More of sad poor parent death dec. this'd shows us dec's parents. That is his mother's blood on his hands. When she was killed (dec was still a harklette) he ran over and knelt down by her and put his hands on her. This image is not literal, the blood is not actually on his hands now, it is simply a flash back sort of thing. His parents are spirits because when a creature on Oceloca dies it does not turn into a soul like other things on other planets. They still retain their form. Their wounds or deformities at the time of death stay present on the spirit. So you can see how his parents died.
