When Nukus informs the two that the monster (whom he describes as "some big bouncy thing with bunny ears and boxing gloves") punched him in the head and Horribelle adds that he "hippity-hopped out the front coffin", Vilor tells them that he told Les not to do it. Nukus then warns Les of the consequences; namely that if a monster isn't brought to life by him, it cannot be controlled, and if Rooth-less isn't brought back within 24 hours it would create a rift in the 2D world, sending all 2D creatures back, including the Crustaceans.
