Kamahl knows he has to act. The conflict between Phage and Akroma threatens to consume all of Otaria. All armies have converged and are ready for war. Breaking his deep meditation in the Krosan forest, Kamahl races to the scene of battle between his fallen sister and the arcane angel. Just as the two women are about to trade blows, Kamahl strikes, cutting both women with a single blow to end the feud, but ancient, unseen forces intervene and fuse the two women into an immensely powerful being: Karona.
