There was little time to discuss what to do. The soul of Hans Drubal chased after his body down a hallway that we could not follow, though ultimately it did not matter. By the time we picked up Mirari’s body, Hans Drubal re-entered the arena, obviously staggered and wincing in pain. Hans fell over the edge of the arena and laid motionless. While I could detect evil about his person, I also could tell that he was not entirely himself. While looking physically okay from the fall, there was more to the task at hand. Hans had his the sword, ravage, in one hand and the helmet in the other. We knew that the helmet was used to control Hans’s body while the demon ravage used as a puppet.

Without any time to discuss the matter, Hans seemed to stand up and with great exertion sundered the helmet with the sword, causing both to shatter. While Hans fell back upon the sands of the arena next sound we heard could only be described by very few. Unfortunately I think I was the only one around to have witnessed this sound before. Hans body was being inhabited by both demon and paladin, the human body no longer able to deal with such pressure of both souls causing the body to wrack and convulse in unnatural spasms. With a grotesque and unnatural howl followed by a strange popping/ hissing sound, both souls the body began to pull away from itself with each soul taking a part of the body for itself. Unlike when I had a aspect of Tharazsdun’s soul crawl its way through my throat, I could only begin to imagine the pain the paladin of Pelor could be goin through. Once both souls finally split away from each other I could tell that body of Hans was not utterly destroyed, but remained whole, and uncorrupted from the ordeal.
Ravage wasted little time leaving the body of Hans, with his hatred unkempt he began to viciously hack into the unconscious paladin. Ravage ignored the repeated attacks by Omar, Edge, Orek and Sveta upon the demon as his lust for blood consumed him. I grabbed the unconscious body of Hans and began to drag him away from the demons melee. Eventually Hans told us best way to stop Ravage was to re-imprison the demon back in the magic mirror that held Mirari’s body. The party then began to attack ravage, grappling with him and holding him down while we drug him to the mirror. Sveta placed a headlock upon the demon and eventually threw ravage into the mirror, with he help from the party. Mirari’s soul now expelled from the mirror found its way back to its body.with that battle done we thought it was all over.

After I restored Hans body with a few healing spells, we heard commotion coming from the stands. The Balor Miranon entered the arena stands being surrounded by unholy bodyguards. With a chuckle, filling the air with his sulfurous stench, he shouts," Our deal is now at an end, I have fulfilled my part of the bargain and now I ask you to step away from the mirror." Hans, unsheathing the Great sword Kelevor, leveled a look at the great tanari and replies, “no, I don’t think so.” Enraged by the the Paladin, Miranon and his demonic force made up of Chasmes, Tanaruks, a Vrock, and another unidentified group of demons began to assault the party.
Hans challenged the Balor, while Edge and Sveta attacked the other demons. The rest of the party made a lines and began culling the demons from the arena. After the fight ensued, Uriel and Takashi showed up and began to assist his master, not knowing of his recent transformation. Once the battle was finished, some of the party members noticed that both Takashi and Uriel had aged since we last saw them. Hans commanded Uriel and Takashi to carry the mirror and we started to discuss the business of how to leave the arena sands.
