Geel-Ma is a rogue Argonian Shadowscale who is the second-scale to Tsatva-Lan. He and his master have gone missing in the Cradle of Shadows, which has resulted in Hides-the-Ashes to come and look for them.

Upon entering the Spinner's Sanctuary, Geel-Ma and his master are seen with Dranos Velador, whereafter he is shortly killed by Tsatva-Lan to prove his loyalty to the Silken Ring. After witnessing his death, Hides-the-Ashes says "That bastard. He didn't even let Geel-Ma die with a knife in his hand."

Hides-the-Ashes: "I heard screeching. Giant spiders? No surprise there... wait."
Hides-the-Ashes: "It's the Ring's field captain, Dranos Velador and... no. No, no, no."
Tsatva-Lan: "It is done, Velador. The remaining Shadowscales are dealt with."
Dranos Velador: "I'm afraid you're mistaken, my friend. Another member of your tribe has breached the gates."
Tsatva-Lan: "Hides-the-Ashes. If she is here, she will die like the rest. Now, you wanted proof of my loyalty? Bear witness."
Geel-Ma: "Tsatva-Lan, what are you—? You do not need to do this!"
Geel-Ma: "No!"
Dranos Velador: "Well done, my scaled friend. You have cast off your old skin, and the Silken Ring welcomes you as a brother. Seek out Velidreth and receive your blessing."
Hides-the-Ashes: "I need a moment to... sort this out. Kill that smoke-skin bastard, Dranos, and we'll regroup afterward.

Tsatva will well then exit the room and head toward's Velidreth's sanctum.
