When Armen arrives to scene to save the people from being killed for being Heretics, he does nothing and watches by how they are killed with the arrows. And in the middle he decides to open a shield, but ultimately everyone dies.
Was he in a weakened or confused state to let everyone die? Otherwise he should be strong enough to protect everyone. For me it kind of seemed off place that he would just let them all die and then later turn into a demon.
It would seem more logical that he arrived to scene when everybody was killed and then turn into the demon.
Did I miss something?
