Icarus is an orange male flier, or bat, and flies into the Regalian arena, plagueridden, and clearly incoherent. He flies around for a bit, then ceases flying and plummets to the ground and breaks his neck, dying instantly. Solovet calls to set the body on fire, Ripred argues against it, but they torch Icarus anyway, and the fleas carrying the plague hop off him, chasing the Underlanders and bats. Though they take preventative measures, Gregor's mother and two bats are plaguestricken.
