Nightingale is emotionally destroyed after seeing the Maluma attack and kill someone, and she collapses uselessly to the ground.
Zafir rages at her, insisting that he could’ve saved Echo. Nightingale is obviously overcome by the Maluma and needs to die.
Before he can attack, a strange appears in the cavern, apparently after following the group there. It’s Shayliss Arsen, Nightingale’s older sister. She insists that Nightingale did nothing wrong, and was just defending herself.
Zafir takes the surviving Anointed and leaves the cave, enraged that Nightingale won’t be punished.
