Despite the close proximity, Bongo's shot goes wild and hits the creature
in the main body again.  The blast rips into the creature's chest, and green
oily blood sizzles as chunks of what probably are fried internal organs smack

Talas's stab misses the creature's throat and jabs into its chest.  The
creature is completely immobile now, save for large quantities of green
ichour running all over the passage.

"I think it's dead." Lena says.  Then she looks to the elvin woman.
