SANTOPIA - Attack of the Pirandelves
Christmas Eve. Taraxa, returning for his wife Inula, tries to sneak out across Frozen Lake while the dreaded Flying Trelves are occupied saluting Santa as he travels to the Other World.
Spicata takes a squadron of Skelves out onto Frozen Lake to block their way.
The Baroness sends a bolt of fire from her Magic Staff that drills holes in the ice, freeing the deadly Pirandelves to rise from the cold depths to attack and kill Taraxa.
With only one Flying Trelf with him, Spicata tries to hold on while the Trelf flies away, but the weight is too much, and the Trelf drops Spicata right next to Taraxa.
With the swish of the strong tail of a Pirandelf, Taraxa, Inula and Spicata are swept into a hole in the ice down to certain death in the freezing water below.
