I'm having a hard time figuring out what just happened it Ta-wahi.
Did both characters just die? Cause I think Quatar got his neck broken and Toa boy went and got stabbed in the face.
I deliberately made the post unclear because:
1) I didn't want to go into too much detail and be too blunt about how severe their injuries were because let's face it, it's not a beautiful concept
2) From the character's point of view, this is the past, and everything is hazy with all the madness going down and all
and i wanted to look cool by showing and not telling
Content Warning: The following explanation isn't pretty.
Quatan is an NPC I made specifically for that post. Tadris accidentally broke his neck in the struggle. It wasn't fatal, but Quatan was paralyzed, and as such finished the job by twisting his own neck, snapping it and killing him in the process.
Tadris fell unconscious from blood loss after being stabbed in the torso a ridiculous amount of times, and it would help if someone went and stumbled upon him so I didn't have to save him myself. There happens to be a shard of razor-sharp metal inside his body as well, just for giggles.
