I quote from Reference guide 1.3 When a Character uses a movement to leave a space Adjacent to an Enemy, both Characters make a Face to Face Disengage Roll. To Disengage, follow this sequence: However it is not totally clear to me whether this is mandatory on the part of the Defender. Could the Defender just choose to let the active player move without the roll? I just saw Juan Lara in his latest YouTube video use Bachmann to impose four Poison tokens on the Defender merely by moving two spaces. We have always had the Taunting Characters being able to taunt in the Disengage roll and we often see Tao Wu forcing the Defender to discard two Tactics by attempting to move twice. I have always felt that the Disengage roll was mandatory for both players until I saw what Bachmann did.
