A man cannot be recognised as a warrior in the Torres Strait Islands until he survives a battle with a native enemy. Waii and Sobai are two brothers, famous as fighters. They share in killing trespassers or attackers. If they come upon a man untaught in fighting, their arrows dig into his chest. He cries for help, but his call is never heard.
