Consider what would happen if Penric was threatened to the point of death. Desdemona has enough control to take out a whole squad the same way Dag did. A spurt of Chaos on the spinal chord would definitely settle them down, permanently.
It might not even kill them, immediately.

Yes, this chapter made me quite worried for the outcome!  You want to say, don’t go, Penric! but of course he has to.  (I always want to shout at Romeo and Juliet to stop, too.  And other characters in other works.)
