|Chronological and political information|
During the Mechane's run through Passage Pass, they were ambushed by a clan of frost giants who were followers of Thrym and so wanted to stop the Order from reaching the Council of Clans after the tie at the Godsmoot.
When Andi mutinied, knocking out Bandana with a spanner, Mateo did not have the luxury of choosing a side or arguing over command, as he still had to steer the ship. He followed Andi's order to steer off the Pass to port and after informing her of the impending mountain, followed her order to steer to starboard around it, just scraping by the escarpment. He was overruled when he cautioned that the ship would hit a ridge, but was proven right. He cut the bonds on Bandana after she convinced the crew to end the mutiny and restore her command.
