Now I've had Shoro make a quick escape, but not before explaining his reasons for doing so via thought bubbles. Of course, he's not going to be telling his teammates this. So now we're back to the heroes having the advantage.
I almost had Shoro use Solfra, the Solar equivalent to Mufesu, in addition to Lydia using Mufesu, but I later realized that Shoro might not have had time to set a location for it mentally in advance, while Lydia still had her location set from when she used it at the docks earlier. So I just had them go together in one spell. Luckily I got to show off Solfra in the previous chapter anyway.
