Azure is standing in one of the teleport rooms, waiting as the last of the three large pallets are loaded onto the sending pad. Once it's in place, they step into the empty corner along with the single waiting passenger and her elekid daemon. The nearby monitor reports that the receiving pad on Citadel of Spring has already been cleared of obstacles. Tapping the terminal to start the countdown, Florentho begins activating Teleport. The pallets and the two humans and their daemons all faintly begin to glow as the Move is prepared. After a quick falling sensation, they appear in a similar but slightly different room.
A room which is in complete panic. Instinctively, they jump off of the teleport platform, Florentho trying to find the source of the problem.
Some kind of snake-like thing slithers into view, knocking over one of the pallets. At the front, where most daemons would have a face, it instead has a large mirror. It isn't something they've ever seen before, and they can't spot its human.
It lunges deceptively fast. Florentho readies himself into a fighting stance to defend his slower and more fragile human half behind him. When the mirror-thing strikes, Florentho passes right through the mirror as if it were a doorway, and Azure follows an instant later.
