"Thank you. I appreciate not being hurt, frankly. Although given my lack of biology the sensation is difficult to describe." Shaking it's head, the avatar of Nexus continued, "In this event, Deus' efforts would be a struggle. Most of my power is still limited, but I suspect our enemy has the ability to repair that."
Pausing, Nexus considers. "The simplest method for killing something like me would be in two parts. The first would be to destroy the crystal columns that generate my power. Without it my functions are significantly curtailed, and I will eventually be forced to sleep. The second part would be to destroy my mind."
Aibek shifted uncomfortably and jotted down a few notes. More time was needed...more time to help Nexus repair, to help expand Azerna's comfortable movement area, to help Rinat and the group...
There was not enough time to be so scattered. Or to dance around the obvious issue, but Aibek tried it anyway...
"Is there anything we can do to better protect your mind from Deus's efforts?"
