How to use Eblis in a sentence
The leader of one line was Gehenna, and the next two ships astern of her were Eblis and Shaitan, in the order given.
There could have been no time to think and, for Eblis's commander on the bridge, none to gather information.
Says Eblis: "I consider I must have considerably damaged this cruiser, as 20 feet of her side plating was left in my foc'sle."
After all that Eblis picked herself up, and discovered that she was still alive, with a dog's chance of getting to port.
So Gehenna did not die in vain, and we may take it that the discovery did not unduly depress Eblis's wounded in hospital.
