No, no, no. The Neighbor in the form of a greenbuck whom Horn was chasing 
when he kilt hisself _became_ _Horn_: reanimating him and taking on his 
identity. Neighbors seem to be more morally sensitive than humans because 
the Neighbor feels such great guilt over killing Horn (as he sees it) that 
he spends almost the entire novel coming to terms with it.
