Sialillion smiles back at Ugul, returning the dwarf's icy glare for
just a moment before returning her attention to the adventurers as

low over the shop, coming within a few feet of Ugul's head then
quickly flying out the door and landing elegantly on Sialillion's
outstreched arm. The door swings shut behind her.
