Working with Mr. Isaak Bia, the arachne security head, they decided that if a supernatural attack was on the way, that it would be too difficult to defend everyone if they were staying in the various guest cabins as had been originally planned. As such, they decided to put both parties in the main activity facility where they only had one building to defend. There was some disagreement from the negotiators on both side. Agent Harrison was especially annoyed with the twelve-year old supernatural killing machine making his job more difficult as now he and his team had to make their preparations where the other side in negotiations might stumble upon them. The Spooky Girl moved about, looking for signs of other spirits but didn't seem to find much in the way of unusual spiritual activity.
Later, as Thomas was getting set to draw a layered set of magical wards about the central building, he was approached by someone who appeared to be acting as a secretary for one Katya Chen a near-human arachne whom Thomas took as the overall leader of the group even though she wasn't the active negotiator. Strangely, while most of the arachne had Russian or East-Asian appearances, this woman looked distinctly Mediterranean in features. He exchanged the plans with her and she nodded along and warned for him not to kill any spiders he might see, offering to give him a shawl or something against the evening chill of late-spring Colorado. Thomas sort of shrugged and accepted the offer before taking his chain sword and drawing a series of warding circles about the building.
With the help of this supernatural clarity, he saw an approaching silhouette that was largely than a person but still human shaped. He warned people and decided to engage the oncoming enemy outside the ward. Swooping down, he knocked the form off balance before being slammed by the wind through the walls of one of the guest cabins stuck in the wind. Sniper fire supported him also knocking the figure down which fell with a metallic crash.
