A confused look crosses Miles' face. He looks at the new party, the events unfolding before him and then to Thodin.
'Friend Thodin", Miles whispers, "We best wait a moment, these are armed men and we have little in way of arms or power. Let us wait, not act. If the moment arises that action is needed I will be with you my friend."
Miles takes a slight defensive stance just incase he needs to act.

Jacek opens the rear driver door of the ATV.

Inside is what appears to be a child, drying blood and scars all over
her body. A pool of blood lies beneath her on the seat. She is as pale
as death, her eyelids are lifted, revealing the eyes underneath. The
pupils are completed dilated.

Jacek leans in very closely, but does not touch her. After a moment he
says "This body appears dead. But what does that mean, for
supernatural creatures?"

Jacek turns to his men. "Edvard, fetch the can of diesel from the ATV.
Blackear and Stevens, take a lantern and fetch some wood. Be quick
about it. I'm sure our new friends have no desire to stay here any
longer than they have to."

The three men quickly set about their assigned tasks. Louissa looks on
hopelessly to Ted and Alex, but both seem heavy in thought.

A few minutes later, a fairly good pile of dead dry wood has been
gathered, and the pile has been soaked with diesel.

[Thodin the Dwarf]
Thodin looks on in horror. "Friend Miles," he says to his companion,
"they are going to burn that child!" The Dwarf's hand reaches almost
instinctively for his energy pistol.
[/Thodin the Dwarf]

One of the Borg's men is faster to the draw, and his energy pistol is
out and pointed straight at the Dwarf. "No no no." the man says.
"Jacek 'ere's gonna burn a devil, just like the Knight Commander

"If there are no further objections," Jacek says, "let us get this
deed done." He leans in to lift the girl...
