Sabre turned back towards the steps that led to the upper battlements, Tassin still trying to get her feet under her and free her arm from his merciless grip. He swung, releasing her, and smashed a spear from the air with a lightning-fast punch. Tassin wondered how he had known it was there, since this time she had not warned him. Before she could dart away, Sabre yanked her to her feet, inflicting more bruises. Soldiers converged on them, her proximity to Sabre forcing them to attack with swords while the archers stood idle.
At Pervor's entry, his eyes opened, staring through the advisor with a chilling lack of expression. Pervor stopped just inside the door. Manutim had instructed him on how to give orders to the warrior, explaining what he called the weapon's 'set up'. He had shown Pervor tiny images of the chief advisor and Tassin, and played recordings of their voices, which he had claimed would be used to ensure that the weapon recognised them. Pervor had found the glowing images and disembodied voices somewhat alarming, but his king had ordered him to trust the wizard.
Pervor was reluctant to unleash Manutim's magical warrior because Tassin would, in all likelihood, hate him for interfering and, if all did not go well, probably have him executed for disobedience. A slight hope that she would see reason when confronted with the battle's bloody slaughter and accept one of the kings had kept him in check, but she clearly intended to go through with her childish threat to kill herself, or try. The risk to her life was too great. He must take action, no matter what the consequences.
