On Tower of Autumn, Azure-and-Florentho stand in one of the teleport rooms. The last of the three pallets are loaded onto the sending pad, and they join them in the empty space along with a non-Teleport-capable passenger who also needs to get to Citadel of Spring. Nearby, the monitor reports that the receiving pad has already been cleared of obstacles and is awaiting them. Tapping the terminal, Florentho starts the countdown and begins to activate Teleport. After a few seconds, they and the pallets are sent to a similar but slightly different room.
One notable difference is that this room is in a complete panic. Instinctively, they jump off of the teleport platform, both scanning the area for signs of disaster.
A strange snake-like thing slithers into view, blindly writhing. In it's flailing, it knocks into one of the pallets hard enough to break through the wrapping and send some of the contents scattering along the floor. Where most daemons would have a face, it instead has a full-length mirror. It isn't like any of the normal daemons anyone has seen, and there's no matching human in sight.
Deceptively fast, it lunges towards Florentho. He readies himself into a fighting stance, prepared to defend his slower and more fragile human half. As the mirror-snake strikes, rather than the expected impact with the mirror Florentho falls into it and Azure follows an instant later.
