One of the guard goes down under a heavy pommel strike by Zadkiel, losing consciousness as he sinks to the ground and his life blood keeps ebbing away.
Cursed, dumb and blind, the only remaining guard on the frontlines showers Zadkiel with a frantic flurry of slashes, but none of them comes even close to hitting home.
Still sobbing, Sophia stumbles away from the fight towards the other girls. A redheaded one hurries towards her and guides her to the other girls in the corner, who form a huddled cuddlepile in order to affirm each other in the face of the bloodshed.
Tanya takes the mace from now blind Sophia and takes a stand 5 feet ahead of the pile. Unlike Sophia, Tanya holds it competently, and now that she is no longer cowed by the nun, her poise has something naturally aristocratic and heroic. If nobility truly runs in the blood, she has it.
The guard who has stood back holds position, still holding his sword protectively in front of the girls. "By the love of all that is good and holy, why are you coming for such innocent maidens? Even if you are knavish enough to pluck young girls off the streets, can you spare enough mercy to at least leave virgins alone?"
Guard #4 continues to hold some action.
