Shocked by Talas' sudden action, Koba is silent. The sudden appearance  
of the Demon has put it all together for him. Now, we are forced to  
fight on his ground. As the demon taunts Talas, Koba takes a moment to  
concentrate. Suddenly a crackling aura of lightning surounds him but  
leaves him apparently unaffected. As Talas is thrown across the  
wasteland, Koba takes the moment to launch a MD blast of lightning  
from his hand towards the demon in an effort to distract him while  
Talas gets back to his feet.
