Malack begins to uncoil.
Malack: I suppose I always knew it would come to this.

Panel 2

He places Durkon's body on his shield.
Malack: I see so clearly now why Tarquin's advice never sat well with me.
Malack: It is not the parent-child relationship I long for these days—it is that of the colleague.
Malack: No—the sibling.

Panel 3

Malack: I had seven brothers once, you know. In that dim other life so long past.
Malack: I remember the taste of their blood far more vividly than any fraternal bond, though.
Malack: How strange that I should seek it out once more.

Panel 4

Beat. Malack regards Durkon.

Panel 5

Malack: Sadly, three days in the grave is time we do not have, refreshing though it is.
Malack: My staff contains many obscure spells that I unearthed in the course of my research, though—including one to hasten the process.

Panel 6

Malack: Rise, Brother Thundershield.

Panel 7

Malack: Rise and seek the blood of the living!
Durkon rises. His eyes are red and he bares fangs. His speech bubble is black.
