When Loki stopped dead in his tracks, Melinoe quickly did as well, immediately looking up to see why they were stopping. When her eyes slowly looked up to stare upon the enemy they had both sensed, Melinoe's eyes grew even wider, and acting on instinct, she slowly became less and less visible, somehow blending in with the night. She searched Iris's brain to see if she recognized the creatures, but all she was able to discover was that scorpions on earth were poisonous, and not something to really mess around with. On that scale, all of her instincts shouted 'run'. "It is not Greek and I do not recognize it, but apparently they are poisonous. Unless you are a warrior god," which Melinoe highly doubted based on his reaction. Ares never would have reacted in such a manner, not that there was anything wrong with Richard's reaction. "I vote we run. What power do you have? Clearly mine is not entirely useful in this case." The more she looked at the scorpion man, the more she disappeared into the night, there but not at the same time.
