The creature violently headbutts Bob in the chest but instead hits some kind of barrier so he's able to step back and summon a rod of fire to thrust at the creature.

Meanwhile, Bob's healing spell continues to aid Steyven. "Thanks for the wall" Bob says to the new stranger he hasn't quite met yet.

Steyven says in a terribly menacing voice "You are a fool for fighting us, if you also fight the taint. Surrender and join with us!"

Cute. You would only get in my way, and end as taint's plaything, so it's you who should give up, boy.

Your opponent proves too stubborn to comply.

Serafina is doubtful that such a rude interloper would merely leave them all alone if they just reported on what they saw, but if there's a chance that they could get a reprieve from the assault, it might be worth it... But could they trust this person?

Your opponent pauses their assault, although he clearly seems ready to resume at a moment's notice.

I'm listening.

Serafina feels like their offer is honest.

The rest of the party hears Tsukiyo, speaking directly to them--"As things stand, I doubt that we can stop this opponent in a fight. I will explain properly once we are free from here--move closer and prepare to touch me in case they show signs of aggression."

Steyven moves closer and begins relaying the tale.

Serafina flies over to Tsukiyo, shrinking down in size as she moves. Though otherwise invisible, Tsukiyo's divine vision can see the pixie's subtly glowing form reducing in size by half as she flitters behind the deity, hiding behind her.

Looks around slightly shifty-eyed before patting Serafina on the back.

As Steyven spills out the details, the hooded figure slowly relaxes their stance and even inquires after some bits:

This experiment was another failure then, but seems like you managed to stop it before things got too much out of control, and for that you have my gratitude. If you would wish to talk to me again, meet me in one week at Grayridge's arena.

Then there's a flash of cold white light and the hooded figure is gone, although the sand where they were stading has somehow frozen, and on top of the ice float five diamonds that seem to faintly glow even under the sun.

"A strange mystery person with tendencies towards both defeating Taint, like us, and attempted murdering of any others that share their goal. Is that what a hero complex is? Or just selfishness?" the child muses aloud with a very strange selection of words as she approaches the diamonds left behind to inspect them for any obvious danger.

Dropping her invisibility, Serafina flutters over to the congregating group.

"I think that must have been one of the people who experimented on those... creatures, from the caves. He seemed like Magedom, and with Tsukiyo's description earlier... I don't know. Damn this tainted world, to be made so complicated. Simple, beautiful flame I understand, this... This keeps getting more and more twisted up!"

The pixie crosses her arms and bunches her face up in consternation.

The diamonds look valuable and also to pulsate with some faint magic power, but not dangerous, at least not now.

Feeling slightly forgetful Bob tries to mend everyone's wounds and checks out the new loot.

Bob feels like the diamonds have strong magic. They could be easily sold for 10 000 gold each to your average merchant, but they may also be fused with a weapon or armor as a move action to increase their enhancement bonus by 1, up to +3. With 8 hours of meditation with the equipment the enhancement bonus may even be converted to a special ability of your choice while the diamond is fused. Whoever made them clearly put a lot of work and care on such items.

After inspecting one of the gems he turns to the rest and relays all that information from above.
