Utuk'ku knows that she is not a charismatic leader, never had need of it before. She is the patient type, and this newfound freedom is liberating. There may still be a solution to escape this desert world, but giving the pace of expansion of the barbarians who ransacked her place, time is not on her side. 
Maybe there is another way to look at it, and the end can be achieved by uniting the civilized peoples of this world under the same banner, before we are all consumed by darkness.

The gnolls looked impassively down from the battlements.  The tower was unimpressive, a mere folly, and yet the garrison section felt wholly inadequate to face the monsters that had so regularly wrought havoc among the farmers and crafters here, but with steel panoply, stone walls, and a company of archers behind them they were a step-change above the lone madman who ran screaming by, towards the night towards the distant settlement.
