The word from FASA (and therefore in the Q&A) on Scatter is:

Q1: What happens with Runners that are already designated with a Totem (i.e.
Scatter - Rat Shaman). Would Scatter be assumed to have the abilities of the Rat
Totem (which I doubt)?
A1: You are right to doubt—the answer's no.

Q2: Can Scatter have a different Totem played on her and now become an Owl Shaman
(I figure yes)?
A2: Yes, if you keep correctly answering your own questions I'm going to start
feeling useless…

Hope this helps.
