Lady Frost doesn't seem to respond.  Phaeton cries out "Alex, run!
It's all a trap."

The creature begins beating Phaeton with the hilt of the sword.
Sparks fly off of Phaeton and he falls to the ground.

"No more talk.  Now master will get key!"

The old Cyberknight, still quite weak, shouts "To hell with this!"  Seeing
pulling out the gun, he jumps forward and begins firing himself.  While
the blasts are well-aimed, the creature seems to be protected by some
sort of force.

A blast comes from the sky, striking Osiris in the chest, and blowing
the old man back.  He lands in the snow and is still.

"Frost!" Bongo shouts.  "Snap out of it.  We're all going to bite the
biscuit if we don't get out of here!"  With that he opens fire on the creature.
