What Allysa saw that the men trying to take her captive then saw was a great canid form hurrying right in their direction. The approaching creature was a wolflike being that at first could be thought to be a great wolf rising up to pounce on them. This creature was the general kind that was not a wolf springing up, it was a carnivore creature like canids, but would switch to running up toward them upright. This being was rather humanoid, with hand-like endings with dexterous fingers at the ends of what would be the forelimbs, and long feet that the creature could stand up with, or run on four limbs with the feet bending for running on just the front of those, to push off with the toes.
The man holding Allysa and the one coming out of the van to lay ahold of her backed away, with Allysa still held in the grip. The canidman snapped at one, ripping into the dark clothing as that man moved abruptly from the creature, and then at the one reaching for Allysa just then. That other man screamed in pain then. The canidman barked loudly in a terrifying way, and then a voice came into the minds of those there. "Leave her, and go away! Now! Or I will finish you!"
Those two finally let Allysa go, and seeing the van would be no good for Ieaving, they both fled as fast as they could go. The other one who went to help at the front saw then the great canidman, and with a terrified look on his face, he turned and went running after the others. The driver though had put out the fire, and he quickly got back into the vehicle to see if he could start it again, but it did not work, and he ran out hurriedly then.
