Every time you do some kind of complex magic there is some portion of the energy that will get released in other ways … as light, as heat, as a shockwave. Teleportation of one person over a short distance is already a fairly complicated and energy-intensive thing. Teleporting eight people across many kilometers, like seen here, requires an amount of energy and control that only a Gena backed up by several very experienced and powerful mages could muster.

Making sure that the process is free of any harmful side-effects for their surroundings would be even harder … but it would certainly be possible to do.

Of course you would have to care enough for that to make the extra effort. Which Ki’i’Mar obviously doesn’t.
