The battle will take place in the Valley of The Shadow of Death
Autus remembers when he first set foot in this cursed valley, the very air to him reaked of decay and the air filled with the screams of the tormented down in the large River beneath the bridge. He recalls a higher-up accidentally falling in, he never came out. That is when Autus learned that the river was no place for demons, and mortals to wind up in. Those souls tear you to shreds if you enter.
Out of the corner of his eye, he spots someone.. or something coming down this way, but he wonders... why, why would they come through such a monstrous place like this, he can see by their figures that they are most likely human for the most part. He transforms into a large rock next to one of the gargantuan statues. As a rock, he can only use vibrations to tell how close they are. "interesting little humans, they are brave enough to set foot in this forsaken valley, and... what's this..? a shade is with them too?" He thinks to himself, as he can sense the presence of any spirit-like beings entering this valley.
"ah but no worries, they will be tastey morsels for my master and... hopefully me too.." He continues to lie and wait for them to get close enough so that he can attack them. He gets distracted by the sould in the river, seeing them so helpless, and full of anger. "disgusting little vermin." he thinks as he feels the vibrations getting stronger.
