The call of a vulture was the sound that brought Alaysha back.
It was always the shriek of the carrion bird that brought her around afterwards, like the sacred minerals the tribal shamans used to bring a dream-walker back to reality. It wasn't as though she fainted during battle -- would to the Deities she could -- but rather, she sort of went into herself and hid there somewhere inside while the deed was done. After all these years, she supposed her psyche had trained itself to recover only when it heard the sure signs of scavenge and she could know it was over.
