As Ara unfurled his wings he pleaded to me to help him. I complied and unfurled my wings as well. I then flew up to Ara.
"Lead the way, I want to end this as much as you do."
And so he flew and I followed him, and we came to this one shadow. After a quick dialogue between the shadow and Ara we both began to fight the shadow. It seemed like it was going to be easy enough. I had two swords, Ara had one. That was three swords of equal strength. And as Ara and I continued to attack, he didn't seem to die.
