The Forest People and the Battle of the Kalik Kserken:
Just as the vigil seemed to save Marany Ne from fading away, the Kalik Kserkin, a dark-souled scissors-vulture, flies off with her melody-body, and Amal chases it through the sea to a forest-covered island. He returns the fifth string to A, and sets the sixth back to an F. He calls the for forest people, who teach him an hypnotic drum beat for calling the Kalik to battle. The fight gets frenzied as he tunes his 6th string down to D, and the Kalik lifts him to the sky, where they grapple.
