"Focus on taking out his support! Once he's alone, get back, pick up anyone that can't move any more and retreat out of range!" Tabuki calls, even as attacks are made, and then intercepted. The attempt Kristoph makes against Orin, likely in the hope of removing her quickly from the fray before she can strike again, is intercepted by one of her skeletons. Several of its bones shatter under the assault, and more crack, but it holds together beneath its armor.
Tabuki immediately fires off another volley, though the number of attacks this time are disappointing. not anything like ready to fall.
"He's weakened! Get to binding, kiddo, I'll cover ya." Orin says, tossing the ring to land at Tabuki's feet.
"He can still fight, though!" Tabuki points out.
"Well, yeah. If he gets finished off, there won't be enough of him left to bind until he comes back, y'know!" Orin says, not making any attacks of her own, but deliberately placing herself and her troops in the way, to deflect or simply take the blows that Kristoph, in desperation, has begun lashing out with.
Tabuki focuses on the ring, muttering incantations as she sets her hands on it. like." She says, carefully sliding it onto a finger. "Oh yeah. No real help for you, kiddo, but I can use this..."
Tabuki shakes her head.
"In that case... I believe I am still owed two spells, and a useful trinket." She says, wryly.
"Yeah, yeah, can deal with the teachies back at the Palace. Thing I'm thinking of is a useful little bit of armor. You'll be really glad of it, if you're going too much further in here~"

[Some time previous]
You are Emerald. Your job, at the moment, is to kill squid, in a certain place.
.... For various small reasons, and one really big one, you aren't exactly confident about this plan, even given your support. But you'll do your best.
"Okay... take out the little ones first, like she said." You order, glancing around the infested area. You pick out danger zones really quickly. "And... try not to go near the cracks."
Meira grunts, and zips off, carving open a pair of squid without even really trying. Ellete launches a bolt of flame, heavily wounding another, as you start to move, and...
There's a rumbling noise. You freeze. After a moment, a thick and ropy tongue, glistening with caustic drool, pokes out of a crack in the floor and wraps itself around the nearest thing... one of the biggest squid in the area. It screams, somehow, but cannot free itself, and the tongue pulls it down.
It's too big to fit easily through the crack. The tongue doesn't let that stop it, and continues to pull as the squid's body distorts and bends, then ruptures. Then it slides down the hole, gore puddling around the opening and no doubt smearing the walls of the crack on the way down.
"... It's awake. Ugh, and it smelled the blood right away..." You mumble, glancing around the room quickly.
"That seems... like it would belong to something rather significantly larger that that one from the lightless tunnels before." Meira points out, as she tries to keep her composure.
The tongue flicks out through another crack, tasting the air. Nothing is nearby, though, and it remains still before withdrawing. The squid are making a commotion now, however. In the far distance, through one of the adjoining tunnels, you think you can hear faint yelling.
... Crap. You don't really want to risk getting caught by that thing. Squids are clustering around to lap at the gore, though... to kill those, you would have to get close enough to the cracks to be snatched up, if a tongue pokes through. In other words, 'too close'.
