The blade shines pure white. Looking at it directly is rather painful, and it feels warm even from afar. He also notices that his body is indeed covered in a form of Hardlight armor.

As the adorbaphant approached, a shadowy tendril shot out and covered the summon. As it did, the summon seemed to slowly freeze and then shatter.
At Cassie's thoughts, the orb let out what seemed to be light leashes. This allowed everyone to step back and still maintain connection to the orb. Her light treats did pepper the area ahead of the Shade. And it seemed to be 'eating' them.
