With one long finger, he pressed a button with a large X engraved in the center. The room stopped shaking as the engines powered down. The man had an amused look on his face as he extended his hand to Leah.
“Welcome to Castle Necros,” he greeted. “I am your host, the Marquis Ciaran Kabral.”

    1. Lleu generally needs all the help he can get. Unfortunately, the only one of this bunch equipped to handle a major infernal power is Leah, and she's currently occupied.

    1. With Lleu, his reasons are likely saying a wrong word or drawing a wrong line somewhere in the course of the spell.
