Talas gets out of the ATV and walks over to the demon. Aprone seeing that its arm is growing back Talas pulls out his Rail gun and at point blank rang fires a bust into the demons chest. (The gun has depleted uranium rounds. Stops all regeneration, as long as the rounds are in the creatures body.) If the demon is still moving he will take out his Katana and prsead to decapotate the abomination.
Talas then turns his attention to the overturned ATV and asks if every one is safe. And if he is needed to turn it right side up?
