Wistala had fallen in the last tunnels controlled by the demen and has been captured by king Paskinix who hoped to use her as bargain with negotiation with Tyr RuGaard (he wasn't aware however they were related). A bat discovered the captured dragonelle and believed her to be a Firemaid, prompting a rescue operation.
Rescue mission Edit
A party of 4 Firemaids and 14 Firemaidens, led by Ayafeeia attacked the last unknown tunnels still in the hands of the demen. To reach them it was indispensable the scouting information of the bat who first discovered Wistala.
Demen were surprised and suffered losses, but not without killing two Firemaidens. Once the rescue party almost reached the captive dragonelle, the last guards escaped, leaving behind their own king who was captured by Takea (even if he did not put much resistance).
The rescue party returned to the Star-Tunnel, but during the voyage Wistala (who had felt to owe something to Paskinix) let the captured king to escape.
Battle in the Star-tunnel Edit
When the dragons were on the move to return in Lavadome, they were suddenly attacked into the Star-Tunnel.
Hundreds of demens attacked with determination, but with little strategy and were faced with a perfect coordination of Firemaidens and Firemaid: slashing, crushing or engulfing in flame the masses of attackers while staying shoulder-to-shoulder in front of them.
After a brief but savage fight the demen gave up, with the survivors retreating and being briefly chased by some drakka.
Despite being a minor event in the Demen War, the rescue of Wistala (one of the Siblings) was an important event, granting her survival. The battle itself occurred after the First Battle of the Star-Tunnel, and the demen had already lost most of their army.
