Tear Jerker: Trapped on Draconica
Erowin's death over all is very sad but what makes this a tearjerker is how Daniar reacts to it. Moderately sad at first she soldiers on determined to complete her goal then it fails. Completely out of Heroic Spirit Daniar pours her heart out in a waste land then curls up into a ball and sobs.
