Carlos accelerates the Skycycle, making a bee-line for the demon.
As he approaches, he radios Alex and Koba, "Alex, you said you
could fire on this demon, can you give us cover?  And Koba, if you
can move fast enough, move in as well."

Talas's carpet of adhesion does the trick, and the demon finds itself
stuck to the ground.  Still, the demon isn't without resources, and
lifts a hand, firing at the Skycycle [Strike: natural 20] with a bolt
of energy [Damage: 60MD], doing some damage to the main body,
and violently rocking the vehicle back and forth.
