J’Zhirr manages to dispose of the thralls quietly. As he continues up the stairs, he hears Malkus speaking.
Malkus says, “How much longer can you keep this up, Moth Priest? Your mind was strong, but you’re exhausted from the struggle. Yes, I can feel your defenses crumbling. You want it to end. You want to give in to me. Now, acknowledge me as your master!”
J’Zhirr peers over the top of the stairs and sees Malkus, a vampire and a vampire thrall. This one better do something before Malkus breaks the Moth Priest’s will.
