Shorty was the name given by Machiko Noguchi to a young Yautja in the Hunter clan that he had been adopted into after the massacre at the Prosperity Wells settlement on Ryushi. He was named thusly for his shorter-than-average height.
Shorty and Machiko were constantly at odds for the duration of her time with the clan until the fateful hunt on the planet Bunda during which she went rogue. Amidst the chaos on the planet's surface, Shorty managed to find her and challenge Machiko in combat, but he was finally killed after she antagonized him with insults. Before his death, he appears to have been a sparring parter of sorts with Machiko despite not liking her.
