Milena: *seems determined to cuddle onto her husband despite his deteriorating condition*
Bael: *grumbles* Such foolish behaviour. Mortals…. why cling onto something that you will ultimately lose? Even if you know the outcome… why?
Matthias: *continues shivering, soon going limp. He stays still and silent for a few moments, and then he begins to twitch, making an unnatural bubbling sound, his eyes snapping open, completely blackened by the scourging effect. He makes a few hungry sounds, then launches his head at Milena’s shoulder, biting into it with as much effort as he can manage* Reeeewwwrrrrr!!
*meanwhile, one of the other elves nearby yells* Scourge! Scourge in our camp! *this causes others to quickly rush the zombie, promptly dragging him away from Milena, then they begin clubbing it in order to kill it*
