* [[TheDreaded The]] [[AxCrazy Mad]] Pack, a pack of thirty-seven {{savage wolves}} that has terrorized Prydain for the last twenty years. They suffer from a disease similar to rabies which was originally gained from a foreign dog. It has robbed them of all natural instincts and reason, making them attack and kill ''anything'' that moves -- big cats, bears, entire wolf packs, any forest animal they can sunk their teeth into, livestock and humans. At least fifteen people (including a child younger than Avalina by one or two years) have lost their lives to the Mad Pack. They rarely touch the meat of their victims, living only for the blood and the kill. The worst part is, this disease is incurable, and unlike real-life rabies, it doesn't seem to have killed off any of the wolves because their numbers have increased in the years following the pack's first appearance. It's fortunate that the Horned King finishes them off since they're too crazy to run away even from ''[[WalkingWasteland him]]''.

** In one dream, Avalina finds herself included to the infamous scene in the movie in which the Horned King uses [[ArtifactOfDoom the Black Cauldron]] to create the [[AnimateDead Cauldron]]-[[DemBones Born]]. She's been tied up next to Taran, Eilonwy and Fflewddur. Everything happens exactly like in the movie, until the Horned King orders his undead warriors to go forth. Suddenly the rope holding Avalina in the air snaps and she falls to the ground. All the Cauldron-Born around her start advancing toward her and she tries her best to evade them. Eventually she runs up the stairs, right in front of the Horned King. He grabs her and then throws her right into the Caulron-Born's clutches. They overwhelm her and the dream ends with one of them piercing her heart with its sword.

** Another dream is worse. It begins with Avalina riding Mitternacht through the forest happily. When they reach her favorite ridge, she sees the Cauldron-Born advancing far away. She rides home quickly and warns her family. When she's about to take Arran to the saddle, the Cauldron-Born arrive. He orders her to leave and tries to buy her time to escape and gets killed by the Cauldron-Born before her eyes. Then she sees their home in flames and her mother lying in a blood pool. She and Mitternacht then ride away until the Horned King appears before them in his wicked joy. He grabs her by the throat and announces his intent to use her body as a fuel source for the Cauldron. The dream ends with Avalina hearing Mitternacht's dying scream, and the lich's BlackEyesOfEvil turning [[RedEyesTakeWarning red]]. She sinks into blackness with the smell of Death being the last thing she's aware of.

The unhurried NoHoldsBarredBeatdown leaves Taran badly injured everywhere (dislocated left shoulder and broken ribs among other things).

* For Avalina, realising realizing that the castle (which she's been told has been destroyed), where you're currently waiting for the chance to continue your journey to home, belonged to the [[OurLichesAreDifferent undead]] and [[MonstrousHumanoid monstrous-looking]] warlord who is reported to have died recently is disturbing. As she gains the confirmation of the castle's master's identity and sees the Horned King's [[SkullForAHead face]] for the first time, she understandably terrified. Her escape attempt results in her almost getting choked to death and then thrown into a cell. She stays there about a fortnight and nearly dies after stopping eating.
* [[TheDreaded The]] [[AxCrazy Mad]] [[SavageWolves Pack]], a pack consisting of thirty-five wolves that have terrorised terrorized Prydain for the last twenty years. They suffer from a disease similar to rabies which they originally gained from a foreign dog. It has robbed them of all natural instincts and reason, making them to attack and kill anything that moves - big cats, bears, entire wolf packs, other forest animals, livestock and humans. At least fifteen people, including a child younger than Avalina by one or two years, have lost their lives to the Mad Pack. They rarely touch the meat of their victims, living only for the blood and the kill. The worst part is, this disease is incurable, and unlike real-life rabies, it doesn't seem to have killed off any of the wolves, because their numbers have increased in the years following the pack's first appearance.



** Another dream is worse. It begins with Avalina riding Mitternacht through the forest happily. But when they reach her favorite ridge, she sees the Cauldron-Born advancing far away. She rides home quickly and warns her family. But when she's about to take Arran to the saddle, the Cauldron-Born arrive. He orders her to leave and tries to buy her time to escape and gets killed by the Cauldron-Born before her eyes. Then she sees their home in flames and her mother lying in a blood pool. She and Mitternacht then ride away, until the Horned King appears before them in his wicked joy. He grabs her by the throat and announces his intent to use her body for the Cauldron. The dream ends with Avalina hearing Mitternacht's dying scream, and the lich's BlackEyesOfEvil turning [[RedEyesTakeWarning red]]. She sinks into blackness with the smell of Death being the last thing she's aware of.
* The Horned King and Avalina run into Taran and Eilonwy purely by accident. The lich is [[UnstoppableRage consumed by his hatred]] towards the pig-keeper and attacks him, hardly paying attention to Avalina and Eilonwy who both try repeatedly to stop him. He merely shoves or throws them away. The unhurried NoHoldsBarredBeatdown leaves Taran badly injured everywhere (dislocated left shoulder and broken ribs among other things...).

** In one dream, Avalina finds herself included to the infamous scene in the movie in which the Horned King uses [[ArtifactOfDoom the Black Cauldron]] to create the [[AnimateDead Cauldron]]-[[DemBones Born]]. She's been tied up next to Taran, Eilonwy and Fflewddur. Everything happens exactly like in the movie, until the Horned King orders his undead warriors to go and destroy all resistance in their path. Suddenly the rope holding Avalina in the air snaps and she falls to the ground.

Suddenly the rope holding Avalina in the air snaps and she falls to the ground. All the Cauldron-Born around her start advancing towards her and she does her best in trying to avoid them. Eventually she runs up the stairs, right in front of the Horned King. He grabs her and then throws her right into the Caulron-Born's clutches. They overwhelm her and the dream ends with one of them piercing her heart with its sword.
