The Forkrul Assail Sister Calm becomes aware of the release of Korabas, the Otataral Dragon, and feels it approaching. She turns back towards Icarium, whom she considers the only force that can resist Korabas if the other Eleint fail to kill her, or the Eleint themselves should they win.

Kilmandaros is fleeing through innumerable warrens, pursued by Draconus. He catches her and kills both her and Sechul Lath, her son, who tries to defend her.

Korabas is aware that many Eleint have appeared and are chasing her. She cannot out-fly them, so she turns and waits.

Silchas Ruin and Tulas Shorn veer and fly to help Korabas, who is now fighting Eleint and will soon be overwhelmed.

Ganoes Paran and the Malazan Host find a mountain pass blocked by Forkrul Assail and the Perish from the fleet. That night Kalam Mekhar, with Quick Ben's help, infiltrates their camp and assassinates Brother Serenity, the only Pure there. The Malazan sappers have been resupplied by Ganoes: he used his abilities as Master of the Deck to acquire Moranth munitions direct from a Moranth warehouse. The next day the sappers use the munitions to massacre the Forkrul Shriven army. The Perish are forced to surrender.
