David doesn't respond immediately. This was roughly what he'd expected. Words weren't going to dissuade the elf, only the realisation that killing every bear in the world would not change what has happened. And that is something that neither words nor force can bring to the elf, he can only come to that realisation himself.

" Lia, get away from there! " Jasper shouts, aware that although Lia isn't directly in the path between the elf and the bear, she is rather too close for comfort.

Vaerya starts back from where she had been keeping watch, not sure whether to try and stop the elf.

Lia hears Jasper's warning shout and moves, but not away from the bear. Instead she moves closer to it, standing close enough to touch it as the elf bears down on her. She holds out her empty hands, palms upwards in a gesture any elf would recognize as a sign the one making it offers respect. She knows who this elf is, recognizing him from earlier that day, now maddened by grief. Knowing the answer to her question already, she nonetheless voices it.

Lia takes a deep breath and in a voice loud enough for all in the clearing to hear, but a tone that suggests curiosity mixed with mild concern rather than the fear one might expect, she looks right into the elf's eyes and asks him "Why are you attacking this bear?"

Vaerya stands close to Lia, apparantly ready to protect her, but keeping her hands away from her sword.

Jasper starts to move slowly, as unthreateningly as possible, trying to regain line of sight with the bear, closing the range so that if it gets hit - he can launch a repulse at it.

**The elf meets Lia's eyes. Anger and pain swirl within his gaze as he shakes with frustration and barely held back rage.**

David takes a couple of steps forwards. "Lia, please don't make me draw a blade to protect you."

Lia remains where she is, returning the elf's glare with a level look. "Your child was avenged, by us, as you already know. The creature that killed him/her is dead, which you also know, for we told you. I am not trying to deny you your grief, or your anger, but I am not going to stand by while you butcher every bit of wildlife in this forest in the process of finding out that it won't make you feel any better. Go home and look after your loved ones; they need you, and I did not revive you so that you could get yourself killed by what lurks in this forest, for they are far worse than any beast. If you are so far lost to what is right that you are willing to strike me down as I stand here unarmed before you, that is your choice, and for your conscience."

She does not look over at David, keeping her eyes on the elf, but it is clear her next words are for him, "I am making the choice that my conscience demands and whatever the consequence, I will face. What you choose to do is between you and Your conscience, so help me or choose otherwise, but do not try to give me guilt. If you believe me wrong then walk away, for I will Never ask anyone to protect me from the consequences of my choices"

(OOC: Lia didn't actually say 'him/her', but OC I cannot recall 2-months-plus on if said child was a boy or girl. If someone can let me know, I will edit accordingly)

"I did not ask you to revive me, I have accepted my fate. I have entered the dance of death, I have taken the sacred oath. If you stand in my way, I will strike you down. Or I will be struck down. This is your last warning, give your life for the bear if you must, if your beliefs place you that way, but do not think for a moment that I will not remove your head from your shoulders. There is no wrong or right any more, there is just death. Mine. The beasts. Yours. This is the oath of death, of vengeance, of justice."

The elf hefts his blade, it is clear that Lia has a moment to make her choice.

Seeing the eld was going to attack, David starts to run forwards. He doesn't even bother drawing his sword, just puts his weight behind his shield and charges to cover the groundas quickly as he is able.

((I doubt I'll get there before the elf swings, but I'm going for flattening the elf with Strength 2 when I can get there.))

Jasper shifts the target of his preparing repulse spell from the bear to the air elf and incants briefly
" By the powers of Meta-Magic REPULSE"
flinging his magic out at the onrushing elf.

The elf is flung back by Jasper's spell, but after flying the ten foot, he braces himself and charges again, eyes just as wild with anger, rage and insanity.

The elf once again bounces away rom the group, as he rolls away from David's shield charge. He howls with anger and frustration, and in his rage he thrusts his hand towards Lia. He clenches his fist as he incants:

"By the oath I have sworn, I bid that chain mail be shattered!"

Lia's armour crumbles to dust at his words.

"By the power of my people and the blood oath I have sworn, I smite thee down with a lightning strike!"

Lightning flies from the elf's fingers, dancing around David and Jasper to strike the light elf in the chest, sizzling through her body at once where her armour once protected her.
