"Pazuzu, have you come to correct the failures of your son? Do you think you can easily do that...have you not heard the stories your foul spawn tell? Or have you come to bend your knee to my power?" Nyctessa says with a booming voice as the only option remaining was to confront the demon lord.

Yet, Nyctessa smiled as the foul magic had no effect. Thunder began to crash around the battlefield which had already been manipulated to her liking...unbeknownst to the enemy. One of Uliah's troops stood strong next to her.
"We will purify this land in the only way possible, burning out the infestation!" he rallied as she weaved her spell. The battlefield was deafening stopping any attempt Pazuzu had for controlling her mind so he prepared to charge...

The druid was more than ready to lend her power as she next sacrificed one of his minions to create monstrous tendrils of flames that streaked forward grabbing the demon lords wings. Within a moment of struggle he fell to the ground in a rain of ash and feather. His roars of fury rang out for miles as he recovered and charged forward, now on land and with his spear pointed forward.
Nyctessa glances back at her weakened allies and all the other crusaders battling demons. She laughed quietly before speaking with a calm voice that somehow carried and overpowered the roars of Pazuzu.
"This world is mine and so are the inhabitants within it. You have overstayed your welcome. You will bend to my will or I will send you back to your festering pit in pieces."

The very power of death began to swirl around the necromancer becoming a towering avatar that drained the life force of all the lesser demons still on the battlefield. Even the druid and newly sacrificed grubs swelled with the power of undeath as their avatars reached out with translucent black claws that appeared to welcome the demon lords charge.
And at the moment they collided it was as if a cloud of the deepest darkness crashed against Kodar Mountains as the necromantic energies erupted around Pazuzu. Still he charge forward and still Nyctessa cackled madly. It was hard to see clearly through the dark swirls but some of the more powerful could perceive the flesh of the demon lord to be withering and his momentum slowed...till he was in striking distance.
The thrust of his massive spear was accompanied by a roar strong enough to sweep away the remaining darkness revealing the final scene to the onlookers. A ragged giant of bone, feather, and gore held out a spear while Nyctessa stood there holding it back with just the tip of her finger which only a drop of blood drooped from. The demon lords physical form had lost all power in this realm and crumpled.
