Waterman was a participant in the Game Trials with Kleya. In the Loser's bracket, he lost to The Dude, making him tie with Danni. His fans then voted him to fifth place, which would allow him into The Games. Waterman made a petition to oust Jane from the group. Only The Dude concurred with his petition.
Jane, the group leader, made a counter-petition to kick Waterman out of the group. The Bandit and The Dude voted him out, as well. This was really fortunate for Danni Moretti, letting her get into The Game in his place.
His fans were, of course, angry.
