Katkemat masterfully manages to hold control, but partially only because her brother-turned-spirit-wolf intercepts the bulk of the disrupting energy and gets knocked unconscious. Price is similarly wracked by pain but holds it together without moving her spot. In the center of this chaos, the Ainu manages to weave all the magic to a tight control and accomplish what she came to do, animating Narcisso who comes into animate motion with a sudden gasp and shock of sensation. She only barely manages to avoid freaking out and ruining the last of the active part of the ritual.
Katkemat notes that it has a sort of formlessness that makes it impossible to guess what it might be and imagines that the first step to destroying it lies first in defining it. However, she lacks the time and circumstance to perform the sort of magic she'd need to pull off defining the entirety of the thing. However, she opts for performing a partial version of this to induce a change of sort in the piece in front of her, imposing on it a sense of ego and desire to receive credit. She has essentially given a piece of a greater thing it's own sense of individuality.
