Alex stretches her senses towards the baby.  It appears to be human, 
normal mind, obviously frightened.  Somewhere in the interior is another 
mind, rather dim and dull, but still there.

Alex's nightvision reveals a large lumpish looking humanoid huddled into 
a corner of the ruined kitchen holding the other end of the rope.  The 
ugly face doesn't look plotting or devious, but rather just as terrified 
as the baby, though that doesn't seem to explain why it's holding on to 
the baby with a rope.

Louissa finally catches up, but seeing Alex concentrating on the 
interior of the ruined house, stays back a bit.

"Why don't you grab the baby?" she asks quietly.
