Chapter 2.05 is the seventh chapter of Volume 2.
In a flash-quick duel, Gazi defeats Relc thoroughly, then mowes down Klbkch and four more guards, escaping the arrows of the rest of the watch. Handily, she puts down Pisces and Rags as well, then dances among the 23 members of City Watch, defeating Relc, Klbkch, Ryoka, Ksmvr and Relc, while escaping from all arrows.
Then fifteen more Gnolls arrive; [Archers] led by Krshia. Unlike with the City Watch, Gazi moves to kill them, and defeats many. Gazi's Teleportation portal is now active and she is almost at her goal - abducting Erin an Ryoka - when the Liscorians around her start gambling:
- Ryoka tells her she will kill herself before being dragged away, which Gazi detects as lie
- Krshia tells her she will kill Erin before letting her go, which Gazi detects as lie
- Ryoka tells her that Flos has awakened, which Gazi detects as truth and focuses on Ryoka...
- ... Erin punches Gazi in the main eye.
Having lost the balance and the magical eye, Gazi can no longer fight as well before, is struck by two more arrows and retreats into her portal, not having abducted anyone, not even able to hit Erin a last time as revenge.
Two guardsmen and a Gnoll died, and Zevara observes the battlefield afterwards. She decides not to inquire why Gazi wanted to kidnap the two humans, and focuses on the oncoming challenges, among them professing her love to Olesm.
As they all turn back towards Liscor, winter arrives from the High Passes, turning the green grassy hills into a snowed-in winter landscape within moments.
