She's heavily confused right now. She wants to stay with you guys, but she knows Graz'zt is still out there. But she knows if she leaves, she'll worry you guys. She gets up and looks out the window, straining not to bolt. She fixates on something, like a cat watching a mouse. Suddenly, she leaps out the window. Andromaeda is leading all of you as you run outside to see Arianrhod swoop down on someone, pulling him up into the air. She flips him, grabs a foot, and flies high up, swinging to keep him from struggling. Then she pulls her wings in and drops like a rock, crashing into a grainery nearby.
The dust is thick. It's hard to see...until you see a figure stumbling out of the dust. It's Graz'zt. He looks like he took the landing rough; part of a board is sticking out of his arm. In his hand is Wave of Sorrow, his deadly serrated sword.

Kendal, surprised by this, immediately prepares himself for the wave of demonic energy so that this time he's not knocked unconscious again.

Valltheran instantly has his bow in his hands and is nocking an arrow. "Move and die, Graz'zt"

Kendal looks over at Valtheran. "Do you honestly think an arrow is going to kill a Demon Lord? I don't think that wood in his arm is of any concern to him."

"It depends on where it hits... most things have a LOT of trouble surviving an arrow to the eye/"

"Well, he's not exactly you're standard living thing. I mean, that thing knocked me out with his sheer presence."

Graz'zt turns and chuckles. "Your dwarven friend has a point, human. That arrow would no sooner..." He turns and looks back at the lingering dust cloud when he hears snarling. Arianrhod leaps out of it, clawing madly at him now that she's knocked him down. She took the landing even worst. Along with an assortment of deep gashes, both her horns broke off, one wing was sheered off, and the other is barely hanging on through her frenzied thrashing. She's become nothing less than a rabid half-dragon, striking out at Graz'zt. She pulls her head back, puffs out her chest, and breaths deeply through her nose. When she exhales, her breath sparkles and crystallizes the front of his torso.
With speed and power he flipped the two of them and was on top. Straddling her, he burried Wave of Sorrow in her chest and to the ground beyond. She cries out in pain and claws at the sword. Her tail lashes at the crystals, shattering it and the crystallized skin below. As Graz'zt now cries out, he pulls up the sword, Arianhrod still on it, flings her off, and vanishes in an abyssal portal.

Arianrhod lay where she landed, unmoving and unresponsive.

Kendal ignored that last statement and jumped down to the ground from the window. He ran over to Arianrhod.

Valtheran does the same. "I swear that I'm going to kill that fuck."

Andromaeda at first hangs back, but runs directly up to Arianrhod. The half-dragon's eyes stare onward, never blinking. Andromaeda's hands shake as she moves to cradle the still body.
"No! No, It can't be like this! No, not again! Please!" Andromaeda cries as villagers emerge from their houses where they hid at the start of the fight. Everyone circles around, saddened and shocked.

Valtheran lets out a howl of grief, letting what afterlife that Arainrahod was heading to that a noble warrior was on her way.

"She'll...she'll be fine...you'll see." Andromaeda strokes Arianrhod's bloodied hair. "She'll wake up any second now and ask what's wrong, then why I'm not healing her. She has to!" She really seems to be taking this hard. She holds Arianrhod against her and rocks, as if trying to wake a child.

Arianrhod begins to glow. Her body drifts out of Andromaeda's grip a little as a blue shard forms just above her body. The shard rises as Arianrhod's body settles back on the ground before the blue thing solidifies and takes the shape of a tall woman. The light fades to reveal who it is: Mystra, goddess of all magic. Kendal, you suddenly feel stronger. She vanishes.
"Damnit! Get back here and heal her! You're a god! Fix this!" Andromaeda yells out to nothing.

Kendal's feeling of strength seems to go away as the reality of what happened really does hit him. "She's not... no, she can't be... Peludra, why has this happpened? Why?"

You all hear a wailing roar behind you. Standing on her hindlegs is Peludra. She is massive; a claw alone could dwarf Valtheran, and she finds it hard to perch on the rocky outcropping over the lake. But after her crying is done, you hear her send a curse to Graz'zt: "I WILL END YOU FOR THIS GRAZ'ZT! SHE DIDN'T HAVE TO DIE LIKE THIS!" She launches herself skyward and vanishes. Kendal, only you can hear what she adds. "I will meet you tonight in your dreams to offer some guidance. For now, you must be with Andromaeda; she's taking this the hardest and will need you for strength, whether she knows this or not. Arianrhod was getting better...she didn't have to die...."

Kendal nods in assertion. He goes over to Andromaeda and puts his arms around her.

Andromaeda fights it at first, but quickly turns to hold you close. She simply sits there, comforted by your warmth. Two dragonborn, a brass and a copper, step out of the crowd. One lays a cloak on Arianrhod, and the other looks at all of you.
"So you lot was the companionates of young Arianrhod? My name is Lithmar."
"And mine name be Carthak." The other one said as he tended to the final rights of Arianrhod's body.
"Right. We be the Fifth Knight of Celesita's Star, the Chosen of Peludra. Carthak is going to tend to Arianrhod's body, getting it back to Thay, whilst I tend to you lot, making sure you have wot councelin' you lot need. Oh and for your information we're not really dragonborn, we be dragons." You finally identify that Lithmar is the copper dragon.

Kendal looks up at them. Hard. "Thank you for the honor you give Arianrhod. But as for the counseling, I think it best to leave it until tomorrow. When we can set our minds to the task at hand." He doesn't show it, but a tear falls from his left eye, and slowly makes it's way down his cheek. it falls off, and onto Andromaeda's cheek.
