Ku’la isn’t normally a fighter, but she was frightened and defenseless and Uba is seen as an enemy, just like the rest of the party. And a wild card at that. No one really knows yet who she is and what she can do. And when Goblins are backed into a corner with no other option, they can become the beasts other people believe them to be. Which turned out to be very unfortunate.

Uba: (thinking) If he won’t take me back to my people, I’ll go myself!
Uba: (thinking) He can stay with that awful woman living a fantasy as long as he wants! I am tired of waiting for him!
Uba: (thinking) I knew I shouldn’t have trusted a Roman! If they ever say anything nice it’s just to get something from you! How could I think he ever wanted me! When he could have her! How could I think I could trust him! “Shoo”?! Really?!
(sobbing is heard off camera)
( looking down at Ku’la, still sobbing on the ground)
(Uba reaches hand out to her)
(Ku’la looks up at her, frightened. Uba looks down at Ku’la, concerned)
(Ku’la screams and brandishes claws, charges)
(close-up of Uba. Frightened, closing eyes tight and holding hands out. Two big stone spikes coming out of hands)
(Uba horrified to see Ku’la impaled on spikes)
