Ah, I see. Shenshen would have to explain as well as she could why they had come. And there would be a kind of irony in that Leetah couldn't deliver the full message until they were already hip-deep in the danger. Could be cool.
About Cutter, I think I misunderstood your question when I responded to it. I thought you meant you didn't think his name had been changed yet to "Cutter" in that scene where he loses his knife. You were thinking maybe his name had just recently been changed to Cutter, and that's why he got the knife, is that right? But I think he had received the name Cutter earlier, which is why it wasn't mentioned in that story.
