Stormy is a Supes hockey player and one of Levi’s friends. He’s also involved in the meth cell. Stormy is a skinny kid whom Daunis doesn’t always like much—she notes several times how annoyed she still is that Levi made her go to Shagala with Stormy last year. However, she also feels sympathetic toward him, as Stormy’s dad and his mom, Shawna, go back and forth between struggling with drug use and being involved in their son’s life and tribal affairs. Because of this, Stormy lives most of the time with Levi and Dana. His degree of involvement with the meth cell remains somewhat mysterious, though in the end, he’s the only one to actually turn on Mike and Levi—Daunis arrives at the kidnapping trailer just in time to see Stormy cut Jamie free of his chains. Still, Stormy refuses to testify against Levi, Mike, or Coach Bobby in court; indeed, he refuses to say anything in English and so is held in contempt of court. This means he’ll stay in jail, essentially serving time on Mike’s behalf while Mike goes free.
