Nurianna, justice and all, is oddly quiet. She is trying to listen to what isn't being said, on this rock, in this nothing. A nothing they need to get out of.
A rock, in the nothing. Mina will figure it out.
When Min and his companions show up, it is slightly alarming, only because the only thing to approach them has been a slayer (or several), but when she recognizes the dragonrider, Nurianna is comforted to see a familiar face. And then, discomforted to know that more beings are trapped here.
She watches this odd back-and-forth with Min and Mina. It takes her a bit to recognize the message in Mina's speech, that this is one of those times where the difference between elves and half-elves is worth belaboring. Nurianna understands this is part of Mina's upbringing, perhaps all elves' upbringing... but she ignores it.
She also sees that Min is being extremely subordinate, maybe even to her, which Nurianna finds odd. Yet, correcting his behavior is not what Nurianna can see as the way to make him more comfortable. There are habits we all take comfort in, to help us through this world.
And then where did things go awry? There were sharp voices and arguments over the orc child. The children. Behind the sylph, protected. Yet bound. Nurianna, still listening to the nothing around the noise, frowns. If Red Dragonflight were involved, she wonders if it was the same nonsense as she witnessed in the temple in the south. And if it was... well, it still doesn't explain why they are tied up. After all they must have been through. They look so scared.

She is watching the children while Mina speaks. Mina's bearing seems to Nurianna to be a mixture of royal outrage and extreme devotion to her belief system. It isn't something that Nurianna ever questions, but now in the face of the half-elf guardian of an orc child, she wonders Why now, Mina?
And now Nurianna senses an exchange of an item; she turns her glance from the children back to Mina to see her hand over an arrow. Nurianna is surprised that Mina is parting with it, but as Mina speaks, it becomes clear exactly what Mina has given Min. And when Min destroys it in front of the frightened orc child, Nurianna senses a shift, and this time is not surprised that the sylph is at the ready to defend Min.
We are about to argue in limbo, about things which, if we were on the material plane, would also take forever to resolve.

"Please," she says, to all three, still standing beside Mina but facing Min and Aylaeth. Nurianna is calm, and her hands are at her sides. "These are issues that will not be resolved in limbo, nor any other plane." Looking between Min and Mina, she continues to address all present: "We can all agree that beings of honest and trustworthy bearing, when called to their duties, must answer those calls fully. The nature of those duties does not sully the fact that they remain honest, trustworthy beings." Nurianna turns to Mina. She addresses her quietly, as her friend, but still well within earshot of the others, and looking her in the eye, says: "There is gnoll among them." She cocks her head inquisitively: "Shall I slay it?"
Nurianna makes absolutely no move towards the children, towards her scimitar, nor does she move at all. But she does raise her eyebrows, waiting for an answer from Mina.
