When Cotillion came to check on Minala and her 'army' of children (the Company of Shadow - which had been tasked with protecting the Imass First Throne from the Tiste Edur), Minala told him of the horrific casualties amongst her 'Company' and asked fiercely for more help - in particular for Shadow Realm demons such as the Dinal which Shadowthrone had the power to call upon - only to have Cotillion tell her that that would not be possible right then.
- "Ah, then I cannot expect more Aptorians. What of the other demons of your realm, Cotillion? Azalan? Dinal? Can you give us nothing?"
