The only noise one could hear next was a loud thud as Ren was hammered over the head then flung back by the shadow claw. He flew straight into a tree near where Titus and carmine now stood. His shell armor saved his skull from being shattered and surprisingly remained in-tact. His stomach and side however, sustained rather massive damage from the shadow claw. Ren flopped un-gracefully to the ground and simply laid there, knocked out. It dawned on Titus that there was no way he could stand a chance against these trevenant, as they were clearly much stronger than Ren or himself.
Titus was out of options and places to run now. He could not just abandon his un-conscious teammate or the new found duskull and he certainly couldn’t successfully drag them both away in his own current state. Things seemed bleak and were only getting worse as the trevenant hit with ice beam was starting to snap out of the shock, not nearly as damaged as anyone would have hoped. To Make matters worse Titus swore he saw something red and glowing out of the corner of his eye, potentially another trevenant brought into the fray by the others screaming. All he could do was attempt a battle stance and try to hold the attackers off.
