Spirits work through deals. You do such and such for me and I'll do this and that for you. We all have our natural talents, strengths and weaknesses.
But why would you think there is a 'bounty"?
We don't group spirits for nothing. Many times when you anger or please a spirit (angel, daemon, nature spirit, etc) you gain the hate or favor of those like them. So if you did something against a spirit, they could have just let their friends know
