Ok lots of credit given to everyone who called out the bottle gag last week. You know Cer'veja well. So here's a question, what are they going to do with this new guy?

Bottle: Knew it.

New Guy: Normally, I'd say within an hour he'll be missed. But, everyone's drinking so that's iffy. He surely will be missed by tomorrow morning, so if they're not gonna kill him they have a quick decision to make.

They can move him very far away from the others and then leave the island in a direction they won't be seen. However, even if the Almier won't know direction, they WILL have a rough search area, and they have a lot of ships at their disposal, and a motivation to hunt down an Archon.

They could make the unpalatable decision to take him with them. That only leaves the Almier with the mystery of a lost man. Wildlife, falling off an outcropping into the sea, or plain desertion would all be plausible explanations. However, he would be a drag on the boat, taxing Arua's strength even more, and increasing their needs for supplies. And eventually they're gonna have to drop him off somewhere. Which would mean he could still rat their existence.

Or, they could kill him.

OR, they could perhaps try to determine just how strongly he is attached to the military effort. These don't sound like front-line battle troops. Not if they're only sent in to areas that are already cleared. New Guy here could be no more involved than Supply Guy was. If that's the case, maybe he would appreciate a new career opportunity.

Or, they could kill him.

World courts have held that soldiers "just following orders" are still guilty of the atrocities those orders result in.
