Markus the bandit stood in awe of the strange birdman, unable to take his eyes away. He wanted to help? But...weren't they supposed to stop intruders?
As he was thinking this, Joey lifted his crossbow, obviously scared and not sure what to do. A cat woman (what's with all the animal people? He must have had too much to drink) ran into the room with a flaming sphere and a flail with blue flames, and stabbed the spear into Joey's gut. A shorter person came in calmly and blasted a ray of cold energy into Joey's face, turning it into an icicle!
Joey fell to the ground without another word.
Markus' eyes widened, and yet another animal person, this one a smaller one that looked like a lizard, appeared from nowhere and threw acid on him and Hank! It burned through his clothes, but thankfully didn't cause too much damage. Hank yelped and swatted at where the acid hit him.
Then yet another intruder came in and spoke so commandingly to them that Markus had had it. He snapped. He couldn't do this anymore. He wanted to go home.
He threw down his crossbow and knelt on the ground. "I'm sorry! I didn't mean to! It was supposed to be an easy job! And now there are bone monsters and animal people and I just can't deal with this anymore!"
Hank, seeing one ally die in moments and a second's mind apparently break, dropped his crossbow as well and knelt, his hands behind his head.
