While his companions stave off the attacks of Xanthus's guards (including the mage Bargle), Haldemar attacks the king with a feeblemind spell. Xanthus shakes off the attack and begins to cast a spell of his own.
At that moment, Berylith utters a great roar of defiance and begins bucking and pitching in the air. His face registering sudden fear, Xanthus teleports away. The mage Bargle follows suit, abandoning Xanthus's other guards...
