The grenade hits right between the blue dwarves [Damage: 10MD]. Both
of the creatures are knocked off their feet and stunned by the blast. The
knock-out gas grenade knocks one of them right out, and though the other
is still conscious, between the gas and the concussion, it doesn't seem
to be much of a threat right now.
Her radio then comes alive. "He knows where you are." Koba says, his
voice hard to hear over some severe static. "I suggest getting out of
there. We will get Lady Frost out."
That transmission is quickly followed by Talas. "Lady Alex, the beast
knows were you are. Please lower your gun. And Lady Alex mind your
back, He is not to be trusted. Please reply."
It's at that moment that Alex notices Osiris is missing.

Lady Frost's prone body rises slowly and moves towards Koba. The
demon still looks terror-struck, and does nothing to interfere with Koba's
telekinesis. Finally, after a few tense moments, Lady Frost comes to
rest by Koba.
The demon looks to Talas. "Mighty Demon Queller, you are the bane
of my kind. But perhaps you can aid me. I have been sent here,
though this dimension causes me great pain, after my last residence
was so horrifyingly terminated. I cannot release myself, for I am bound
here as long as my masters require me. Come hither and use your
powers, and then I shall be released."
