It proved a good thing Mordin was keeping track, for several of the predators immediately went after Kaidan, though it would be easy to take them out as they were staggered just enough in timing to allow him to target them.

However, one of them managed to sneak in, and started dragging Lyra away! It might have managed it if not for Talok breaking off his attack and shooting it.


Meanwhile the suspended Klarnell was having none of this. It flailed about in anger, then suddenly there was a bright flash of light, and what looked like an ice crystal jutted out of the ground, looking to impale Kaidan!

Talok, seeing it yelled out to Kaidan, "Look out!"

Mordin is alternating between shooting at the creatures and blasting them with his omni-tool, switching between one and the other, usually while waiting for the omni-tool to run through a short recharge cycle. Given that both Kaidan and Lyra appear to be the primary targets, he continues to watch the Major's back and draw attention to any more of the beasts attempting to haul off the unconscious woman. Thankfully, with Talok on the latter, he can continue to put dents in their numbers.

The ice spike results in a startled squawk from the human and his instinct to dodge is a bit stronger than the active thought that's keeping the Klarnell suspended. Still, reflex is a funny thing and as Kaidan makes to physically throw himself back from where the spike is appearing, the creature is mentally thrown in the opposite direction. It might not be as bad as if he had consciously used his biotics to perform the action but there's a good chance the creature was going to get thrown into a tree or at least need some time to recover from the fall, which would hopefully give the trio a second to breathe and recover.

The creature was thrown back into a smaller tree, actually snapping it in half from the impact, causing said tree to fall on it. Several of the predators make a leap for Mordin as he was now open to attack, but it seemed that Talok at least had anticipated that, and was blasting them with his weapon.

Meanwhile more of them seemed to be coming from somewhere else ....

Kaidan recovers, if but clumsily, his back-pedaling helping him to stagger to his feet and making certain that he's putting himself in closer proximity to Mordin so the two of them can watch each other's backs. He factors Talok into the equation and makes more of a triangle so they can watch for their assailants from better angles.

"We're starting to get overwhelmed here, chief. You know somewhere we can pull back to? Get our backs to a wall so they're not coming at us from all sides?"

If they are going to cut and run, Kaidan will carry Lyra, since he doesn't need his hands free, leaving Talok and Mordin to handle blasting the enemies. If they're going to make their stand where they are, the tactics are primarily the same: Lift, throw, freeze, boom.

Talok yelled back to them, "The city perhaps, but it's odd the other Nox haven't stepped in yet to banish these things. Something is very wrong!"

"Can we get back up there? Or contact the city somehow? Lyra said something was blocking her. Maybe we need to get out of the area."

"Tactical retreat might be best option," Mordin cuts in. "Enemy numbers are getting problematic." Though he doesn't announce it, the Salarian is using his omni-tool to scan for different frequencies. It's one of those instances of not quite knowing what he's looking for but hoping to find something based on theories being thrown around.

Seems like Kaidan might want to just get somewhere else. If the enemy were keeping them from getting out--or the Nox from getting in--then getting away from the enemy might be the best course of action. Granted, it seems like the big guy might be the one they want to get away from, since the others seem more like shock troops.

"If we can ditch big tall and asshole over there, yes there is a spot. Alternatively vould try for the gate, but they may pick us off while we dial it. Either way, yes, distance away would be preferable right now!"


This said as Talok blasted another of the 'shock troops' dead, hissing as he did. A cut had appeared on his arm, one that should have rendered the arm useless. However, if anyone saw even for a moment, they'd see the wound already sealing back up, repairing itself.

Both men are used to having allies that regenerate in combat and having someone that you don't have to slap medi-gel on is a good thing, especially in a firefight this intense.
"You lead the way. I'll see what I can do about putting more distance between him and us. Mordin--"
"Keep firing. I am aware."
Even burdened with Lyra, Kaidan's still moving. His intention is to try and grab the Klarnell again and use his biotics to fling him as hard and far away from them as possible in whichever distance is opposite the one Talok intends to lead them. Mordin is, of course, providing cover fire, sometimes literally.

Talok nodded, picking his way through the foilage expertly, making sure to keep the others in sight, and firing when needed to be rid of the Predators trying to cut off their escape.

The Klarnell was flung in a direction away from them, roaring in anger as it vanished.


As they kept moving, their foes seemed to thin out, enough the others might be glad. Abruptly though, Talok stopped, his slitted eyes narrowing as he muttered several sounds that were likely curses.
