It burned away her clothing and her dermal layer exposing the metal casing beneath. Thank goodness Baroness Amber and Sir Book flew in to take her to safety.
Once she landed in Tanglewood (or rather fell off the blimp) I teleported her Repair Chamber to her, where she tried to regenerate her dermal layer, but failed. It instead replaced the metal with porcelain for her Doll form. She was repaired, but far too vulnerable to perform what would be required of her.
When the distress calls came in she without hesitation jumped back into the Repair Chamber, setting the overrides to equip herself in full steam powered battle armour..the "Omega Configuration".
Soon the aether was burning with chatter, some from the aliens themselves. Quickly the militia converged on the site where the aliens landed.
That's when all Hell broke loose. She circled the evil orbs in aerial battle, weaving through the spires of Victoria City, emptying repeating rifle ammunition at the spheres until the breech melted. She was struck by plasma bolts several times..but this form could survive the heat of a volcano. Even then her armour disintegrated from the onslaught.
The militia regrouped in Mayfair. Frustrated by the lack of visible results of sustained rifle attacks upon the invaders, she turned the weaponry she procured in the Dark Future. I'm not sure if she was able to rip their metal hulls with her Talons, but the hypersonic titanium slugs she fired from her twin hand-cannons (shotguns seems inadequate to describe this awesome weaponry), knocking them out of trajectory several times, causing them to twitch like some form of seizure. One even landed to rest in a nearby field, presumably to repair itself. This was her finest hour. And that is how she fell, shot down by those searing rays from above.
That is how Koen fund her when the smoke cleared.in pieces. I can rebuild her of course. But I am too busy attending to the wounded in this makeshift hospital.
Just this once, I wish I could somehow become the Demon again..I would make these abominations PAY for what they've done to my child!
I was able to seal Mr. Book's chest wound with some herbs from Lady Darkling's garden. Watching nervously for glimpses of the aliens that floated in the woods across from us, I sent distress signals to Tombstone for reinforcements. I did not receive a definite answer. I was so desperate I even went to the other Tombstone for help. But I won't even begin to describe the reception I received there.
For now, I'm assisting in a makeshift hospital, I'm taking the time to write this now because the told me to lie down while they put a tube in my arm to rehydrate me with sugar water.
I'm going to try to sleep a bit..Nurse's orders..then get back to tending the wounded and the broken..if Caledon still exists come the dawn.
