When Dusk's colony arrived at the Tree runner's domain, Adapis greeted them with great hospitality. He invited the chiropter colony to a dinner of berries that will make a creature drugged and asleep. However, Adapis had a deal with a Diatryma, a vicious, flightless bird. The deal was that if the Tree runners fed her, the Diatryma would protect them. Dusk, thanks to his ability to fly, discovered Adapis' plan and saved most of his colony.
