Together with the Anointed, the group finally defeats Alana. They kill the wurm, severing each of its remaining heads. Eventually Alana is on the ground, crawling away from them. She taunts Nightingale, arguing that she has no right to judge. All Alana wanted was immortality, something that Nightingale already had.
The Maluma tries to pressure Nightingale into killing her. But before she can give in, Rook intervenes, insisting that Alana is going to die anyway. She isn’t worth it.
Alana dies on the ground in front of them. Nightingale does her best to comfort Ursy about the loss of her tribe.
