This is how I see the fight go down: Azshara glanced at the closest of the Magi waiting on her. So absorbed was he in her beautiful luminous face, that he seemed completely oblivious to the frown of displeasure curving on her lips.‘You, go see what sort of a person or thing would intrude on my peace,’ she said softly, and the Magi she had glanced at darted as if his life literally depended on her continued peace.The Palace quite literally thundered, and vibrations shimmered through the room and her servants around her jumped and expertly supported the throne she was resting on.‘I wish to see what is going on,’A palanquin appeared as if magically summoned by one of her Magi. The bearers lowered it and she leisurely arranged herself onto it.The bearers lifted the palanquin and headed towards to doorway. The vibrations barely touched her anymore. Her Keepers flanked her, forming a guard.The air chilled outside of her chambers, and Azshara surrounded herself with a shield of warmed air.The sight of some animal filled her view.‘Azshara, I have come to end you,’Her melodious laughter broke the silence, ‘End me?’ she asked unable to contain her amusement. ‘At least introduce yourself, erm, lady?’‘Insolent pup,’ screamed the animal. ‘I am The Stormbinder,’The blank look on her face must have given away her lack of recognition, for the animal growled in anger ‘It matters not. I am here to cleanse the world of your kind. I am sure it is fitting that you shall be the first.’The animal bared her teeth and ran towards her, her blades slicing the air so fast that the blades quite literally blurred.‘I have no time for this. Keepers, which of you will stand for me?’ Azshara asked.Two of the Keepers readied themselves.The animal sliced through one of her Keepers like a hot knife through butter. Even in death the Keeper appeared to glance at his Queen lovingly. The other Keeper wasted no time in blasting the animal with beautiful hues of arcane power. The fur on the animal sizzled.‘You’ll PAY for that,’ the animal screamed. It appeared to channel something. Just as she felt magic surround her shield the palanquin wavered ever so slightly, and she saw the four bearers frozen in place. Even frozen the bearers held their Queen up.The visibility through the ice was limited but she heard the animal scream ‘I’ll slaughter you all,’ as animal sliced through the second Keeper.The Keepers surrounding her reacted instantly, their magic melting the ice that has formed around her. She sat comfortable within her bubble of warm air. The animal was powerful but a fool if it thought itself more powerful than Azshara.She reached out with her mind from within the ice tomb, and found the animal’s life-force. With ease she took control of it.‘So Hagara is your name,’ she whispered. ‘Well Hagara show me what you can do,’ she commanded.Her sight was clear now that the Keepers had freed her and the bearers of their tombs.Hagara summoned a bubble of air that swelled. Sensing what about to happen Azshara extended her shield to surround all four of her bearers. Around her, the guard of Keepers were thrown back. Her mental control had been broken as the bubble formed. Four lines of jagged ice spikes began to form in different directions, and after a few seconds began to rotate. The bearers moved seamlessly and in perfect sync with the walls. They were not strangers to perfection, the walls did not even coming close. One of the Keepers was not fast enough and was sliced apart by one of the walls, now marred red with blood.‘Keepers, I beseech you all. Rid me of this fool,’All six of the remaining Keepers ran towards Hagara. She felt powerful arcane powers being yielded by both parties.Reaching out again she searched for Hagara’s life-force, her mental ability easily slipped through the bubble, and once again she took control.‘Let us see now Hagara whether you die beneath the ice,’ she made Hagara walk into the gap between two ice walls. ‘Hold still,’ she commanded.Azshara released control just as the ice wall reached Hagara, leaving no time for Hagara to do anything more than scream ‘NOOOO!'
