Adamant was probably the last place that Somniari should have been, at least in her own opinion. The struggles of war were not a place for her. A blade and a threat easily tugged at memories that were better left forgotten. It did not help when she was no warrior, not a battlemage that could cut down enemies with the barest movement of her staff. She was a healer, someone better fit for elsewhere- Skyhold, to tend to the wounded after the battle, she might have argued.

Yet, she could recall being told that spirit healers are needed within battle as well. There was a place for her as well, even if she did not believe it. The Spirit had tried to remind her this as well, even if it had chosen distance within this hour. She might have blamed it if she did not understand its motives on some levels. It claimed to have the motive of helping her. She supposed that the sort of help it wished to provide meant it could not always be near.

Somniari could understand that. Not everybody was kind. She would keep away as well if she could.

A grimace made its way to her face, crude vallaslin twisting as she did so. Demons seemed to lurk everywhere with the mad Wardens. As best she could, she tried to make her way through to the battlements.

It was time for battle. Katari had been sent with the Inquisition soldiers to help take control of Adamant and now here she was, on the battlements, shooting down with her bow every demon and rogue warden that crossed her path. Of course she spared those who did not wish for this madness, but most of the wardens she came across were done for and needed to be put down for good.

The word between the soldiers was of the Inquisitor who had fallen from a ledge to her death, but the fighting was definitely not done. She would not give up just because the leader of the Inquisition had perished, leaders could be replaced with other leaders. She made her way on the battlements, shooting dead wardens with extreme precision, but the demons did however, take much more time to put down as she had hoped. This was her first time facing demons, but she tried to push on and not show any fear to these monsters.

As she shot down a warden and rushed around the corner, readying her bow to shoot down another enemy, she came across a white haired and fair skinned mage. Katari's bow was still pointed at the mage, since she did not know if she was with them or with the wardens. The horned woman tilted her head a little and made a sound with her mouth to get the attention of the mage, "Are you with the Inquisition?" She asked strongly, pointing her bow at her, ready to shoot directly between the woman's eyes if she was the enemy.

Getting through the battlements was a difficult task. Offensive magic was not Somniari's forte. She had spent most of her time in the Circle focusing more on healing magic, making her talents as a Spirit Healer stronger. The only offensive magic she possesses was ice magic and it was a field of magic that she clearly needed to study more in.

Still, it held its uses. She found herself able to get past a demon. Unfortunately, just as the demon crumbled into a thick sludge she found herself running into a Qunari woman that signifanctly dwarfed her. Slowly, she blinked at the arrow pointed at her, poised to attack. Instead of looking surprised or afraid, she looked resigned with the situation.

The halfblood's lips pursed at the question. It was a slightly odd one in her mind, but the woman was clearly not a warden. Most likely she was an ally of the Inquisition, thus bringing about the question. "Yes," she said, "Warden ab-" Her expression became pinched and she quickly backtracked. "Mages are wearing their uniforms." Well that, and they all looked a bit insane, but that seemed a bit obvious.

The fair mage in front of her was clearly little confused by the question, but Katari wouldn't take any chance with the enemy. As the woman replied affirmatively to the qunari's question there was a sound behind the mage, a shade was coming from behind her and Katari lifted her bow quickly at the shade shooting an arrow at it, then another as quickly as she could. The shot had been a straight hit, as the shade now fell down and disappeared into a smoke.

Katari lowered her bow to her side and looked back at the mage, "Good. Have you heard of the Inquisitor yet?" She asked keeping an eye out for more enemies, it seemed to be a small break in the line of demons and wardens, but they wouldn't be able to stay still for long. Katari looked properly at the mage now, she was quite small compared to her and she was most likely not used to battle, or at least that was what Katari thought of her.

The resigned expression that had decorated Somniari's expression was quickly replaced by a startled one as the Qunari woman shot an arrow. Thankfully, she had been aiming for something behind her. Possessing little time to actually, examine what had been behind her- this was hardly a quiet walk, after all- she simply chalked it up as a demon. After all, this area was teeming with them.

Carefully, she gripped her staff. It seemed to be best to stay with this woman. The halfblood was better to suited to help others, as opposed to offensive fighting. Best to stick with someone who actually was suited to fighting. chances are that more would get done.

A confused look crossed her face at the mention of the Inquisitor. "No?" she said, a note of uncertainty in her tone. Wherever the Inquisitor had been, she had not been anywhere near. Chances were that it had been farther up ahead. "Did something happen?"

All around her was chaos as the Inquisitions forces crushed with the endless flood of demons coming out of the rift in the central ward. It was looking bad for them - and that was without considering the Wardens that were still fighting them. While it was true, that some had joined them after they had seen how far Clarel had fallen - it were far too few to make a difference. Everywhere she looked their soldiers were barely holding their ground.

From her position on the battlements she had a good overview, but since she specialized in dual wielding and her skills with a bow were only to be considered intermediate, all she could do was to rain arrows upon the oncoming forces from above - a task that became increasingly difficult as their forces soon were undistinguishable, having melted into each other. When it was no longer possible to guarantee that they weren't shooting their own men, she let her remaining men regroup at the central yard, hoping that the rift would be a better target - and that they would make it there in the first place.

Just then fellow spy approached her: "News from the front" The man said, saluting his superior. "Our soldiers report that the Inquisitor and her party have battled Corypheus dragon and were eliminated in the process" Her face showed no reaction, like her training commanded. In her head she was already thinking about the implications of this loss for the battle and she didn't exactly like the conclusion. "Do these soldiers also report, how exactly they were 'eliminated'?" The other spy looked at her, seemingly surprised. Then he stuttered: "They fell into the abyss below the fortress, Sir." She nodded. "Go tell that Commander Cullen, if he doesn't already know and whatever you do - don't tell our forces if they don't explicitly ask for it. If they do, you'll tell them, that the Inquisitor is missing. We don't need our morale to drop any lower, this battle's hard enough as it is." She pointed towards the center of the fortress were the fighting was the most chaotic. "I'll try to catch up to my men in the yard. If we find anything useful, I'll report back to Cullen myself." She looked sternly in the mans eyes. "Did I make myself clear?" The spy nodded. "Dismissed." She waved him away, already going into stealth.

Making her way across the battlements she soon came across enemies. Most let her pass without even noticing her. But she couldn't remain hidden forever and soon a warden mage spotted her - if that creature could even be called a warden anymore. The grotesque silouette of a human had a demon at it's side. Without giving her time to think, the mage launched a fireball at her. She managed to dodge that, but she could smell burned hair. That had been too close. Already the demon was too close for her comfort, but that was probably the best chance, she would get, so instead of trying to get some distance, she drew one of her twin daggers and rammed it into the demons heart with both hands, putting her whole weight behind the strike. The demon collapsed and evaporated almost instantly. One down, thousands more to go. Mages were tricky to take down without a templar or a fellow mage, especially since she had lost the moment of surprise now. Catching a glimpse of a Qunari horn behind the mage brought her to an idea. She threw down a pouch of sleeping powder, hoping it would at least distract the creature and ran around it, trying to kite it towards the group of survivors, she believed she had spotted.

She had been right. There they were. A mage and an archer, just what she needed. "Watch out, mage incoming!" She yelled at the two. Her throat hurt because of how loud she had to shout for her to even hear herself over the deafening noise of the fighting around and below them. She could only hope, the others would hear or at least notice her. Drawing her second dagger, she turned around to face the mage - just in time to evade another fireball.
