Where is your source to this "well known fact" of yours?
You don't know the story of the scorpion and the frog?
One day, a scorpion decided he wanted to move. But to do this he had to cross a river. So he went to the river's bank and saw a frog there. And he called to the frog, asking if he could ride him to the other side. The frog refused, saying "if I do that, you will sting me". But the scorpion said "why would I want to sting you? We would both drown." And so the frog allowed the scorpion to climb on his back. Halfway across the river, the scorpion stung the frog. With his dying breath, the frog asked "why did you sting me?" and the scorpion answered "because it's my nature".
This is sadly what actually happened though you forgot to add the most tragic part where the scorpion shoved a spicy bourritos down the frog's throat as he sank.
Nacho looked upon his enemies. Yes, he regarded the cat as an enemy too. He noticed how the animals' eyes flashed a bright yellow when Venom attacked and that Az though having underestimated the situation failed to move out while Emil who was some distance away managed to knock away the deadly dart. There was something peculiar here and he called out to Jet and Ferret not to get close, at least not until he figured out what were the powers of the cat and Venom.
As the Moomooer held out his palm, a small fiery orb appeared, floating just over his hand and quickly expanding to form a large burning sphere of fire. With a sudden thrust of his hand, Nacho cast the fireball upon Venom who received it full in the face and was knocked down to the floor screaming in pain. As he rolled around, trying put out the fire in his hair, he yelled-
“What the hell!?! You goddamn cheater! You threw that thing at me like that without warning?!?”
Nacho raised his eyebrows in surprise as the guards looked on in quiet disbelief.
The cat- “Mwahahahahaha…”
Ferret- “Damn! The cat is laughing.”
Nacho- “That is no mere cat. Must be a beast.”
Jet- “Oh noes!”
The cat- “Indeed! My name is Ivaron. You can call me Macros if you want. Or just Mac if you are feeling lazy.”
Ferret- “What do you want with us?”
Mac- “Me? Nothing…I came because I thought I would get to see some boo…I mean, ahem, I mean I am here to kill you!”
Mac- “I…uh….dunno…to be honest. Hey wait, why are you asking me all these stupid questions? Do I look like a sphinx to you or what?”
And then the cat stood up on its hind legs and went over to Venom to help him put out the fire. As soon as the scorpion-man was free of flames,
Mac said to him- “You can give me my cape and dagger now- no use in me pretending to be a cat. My cover has been blown.”
Venom managed to stand up, his face blackened with the dirt he rolled his face into and his hair still smoking. He reached inside his cloak and pulled out the outfit of his companion and handed it to him. Then he turned to the mage.
Venom- “No more sneaky attacks, you damn Moomooer! Fight like a man!”
Nacho- “What are you talking about? Weren’t you waiting for the firewall wall to fade to attack us? You even threatened us again. Besides you are the one who sneakily attacked Az.”
Venom- “Don’t go off topic, damnit! You attacked me without warning. How was I supposed to know you would be so cruel to throw a burning ball of fire right in my face? Would you like it, if somebody did something like that to you? Don't you have any shame?”
Mac- “Shut up Venom. Let’s finish this business here.... RRRRRRUuuuuuuuuunnnn!!!”
The two turned and dashed to the doorway to the left corner.
Our companions stood and stared.
Narrator- "Did that really happen?"
Nacho was the first to come to himself and he shouted-
“Let’s follow them. Just be sure not to get too close. I suspect the cat has some power to disadvantage anybody in a melee distance fight. If it comes down to a battle, let me deal with it!”
The mage and the two guards rushed to the doorway through which Venom and Mac just disappeared. However just as Ferret who fastest among the three was about to step through, a great slab of stone fell right in front of him blocking the passage. At the same time, they heard hissing- like at least half a dozen snakes were around them. But they perceived nothing as they spun around trying to see what this new sound could mean.
Then a great serpent fell heavily on the ground right in front of them. There must have been further smaller tunnels high above them.
It was a Phasmatis- no doubt about it. No eyes were present and part of the body had already decayed but as it raised itself, the serpent towered above any of them, thick as tree trunk and fangs dripping with poison.
The guards of Deeha ‘Blothri however did not quail or back away. Jet jumped in his enemy’s direction and brought his sword down. The serpent dodged quickly and attacked immediately. But the guards were trained and highly skilled. In the moment the serpent had dodged Jet’s purposeful attack, Ferret had already moved in and he slashed fiercely to see the serpent’s head fall to the ground and the body follow shortly afterwards- dead.
They heard loud thuds all around them and knew what was coming. More serpents had dropped from the concealed ceiling and were now slithering towards them. Nacho knocked a few back by casting fireballs but there were outnumbered by at least four to one.
The guards helped improve the odds a lot by taking down any Phasmatis that came into range and were stopped by fireballs, but still more of the terrible serpents kept coming.
Nacho yelled for his companions to make a path towards the other doorway since their way back was blocked by too many enemies and in such an open space they would be at a great disadvantage facing this large number of assailants.
Jet swung his sword in a wide arc, hitting several serpents and slowing them down with the cold damage inflicted by the weapon as Ferret pushed forwards towards the right-corner doorway quickly slaying any enemies on their path.
The tactic worked and the companions got through the second door as yet another huge slab of stone fell preventing the Phasmatis from pursuing but also forcing them to move forwards, away from the village.
Nacho lit the two torches they were carrying and they walked forward, still shaken from the last fight. Ferret spoke-
“I don’t want to know what happened to Jeru if he came in here alone.”
Nacho- “There’s still hope, my friend. There’s nothing to say he met any of these creatures when he came through.”
While the situation did indeed seem quite bad, Nacho wanted his companions to keep focused. And too right he was when their path and narrow tunnel opened into another chamber. This one was smaller and the found Mac in it, apparently lost. The cat jumped when he heard them and backed away fast, snarling and drawing out his dagger.
Our friends looked around to see where was Venom but the scorpion-man was nowhere to be seen.
Nacho- “You are lost?”
Mac- “Oh no, I am just taking a stroll and visiting the place a bit…OF COURSE I am lost.”
Nacho- “Look I don’t want to fight you. If you tell us where Jeru is, we’ll let you go.”
Mac- “Who’s Jeru? Your boyfriend?”
Nacho- “He’s a guard of Deeha ‘Blothri and he has entered the cave without permission from the Town-master and has not returned since 2 days now.”
Mac- “So is he your boyfriend?”
Ferret- “What are you talking about, damn cat!?! Tell us where our companion is or you shall taste the wrath of my blade.”
Mac- “Aaah…so he’s your boyfriend…”
Ferret heaving a deep sigh as he said- “Nacho, I’ll let you deal with this.”
Nacho- “Look Mac, we do not want to fight. We need to find a friend of ours if you know where he is.”
Mac- “Alright…alright. I do not know where that Jeru guy is and I lost Venom, meaning that if I meet any of these damn Phasmatis, they’ll attack me. This cave is really tricky.”
Nacho- “Ok then, we shall continue on our way.”
Mac- “Wait…you are just going to leave me here?”
Ferret- “I believe you are still our ene….”
He had hardly completed his sentence when they heard the venomous hissing around them.
This chamber had 3 passageways. They could delay no longer. Nacho called out to the 2 guards to take the middle door. Jet and Ferret hurried forward as Nacho and Mac turned to make sure no serpent were going to attack them. One great Phasmatis had dropped to the ground, larger than any they had yet seen. As its great body moved surprisingly fast on the floor, its mouth opened to reveal huge fangs. When it came within striking distance, Mac jumped forward, eyes flashing a bright yellow and he plunged his dagger into the great body and then leaped back. The snake began to suddenly move much slower and seemed struggling to attack.
Mac- “Let’s go!”
Nacho turned and got a shock. A stone slab rested in the way where the 2 guards had gone.
Mac pointing to the right- “Let’s go this way.”
There was no time to hesitate and the Moomooer heard other phasmatis serpents coming behind them and rushed in the passage with Mac as it closed behind them.
The cave was really strange. It would be impossible for someone to control their path like that. It cannot be the beast or phasmatis because the cat was lost and the foul creatures were cut off in their pursuit.
The two were breathing heavily as they quickly moved away from the stone blocking the passage to the chamber. What they did not see was one of the smaller serpents which managed to slither through before the way was blocked.
They continued in the narrow passageway until this time they came in front of a thick wooden door. Nacho tried to open it but to no avail.
Mac- “I think you’ll have to use one of your fire-tricks on this one.”
As Nacho focused his energy and Mac was watching him, the serpent rose and lunged for the Moomooer’s neck.
At this very moment, the door splintered towards the center and suddenly crashed forward as a great voice boomed-
Nacho and Mac jumped to the side as the heavy door crushed the attacking snake.
A green ghost drifted in.
“Hello fuckers. My fucking name is Zhar.”
---------------------------------------End of Episode 4-------------------------------
