These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
The moment where Naikamil uses her Dragon-curse to torture a wounded Darklander, and force him to move his crippled body in ways that would just cause him to become even more injured. This torture includes brain-washing him so that he is forced back up to his feet, so that the bones in his already-broken legs crumble underneath his weight, and he starts bleeding from his nose andmouth. All without allowing him to cry out in pain. The torment is so great for him, his only hope to end his sorrow was by pleading for Naikamil to give him a Mercy Kill, which she obliges to perform, by crushing his body underneath her large, heavy jaw.
