The ground shock for a moment before the stadium started to descend, stopping after a few seconds with all those on the stadium now surrounded by fifty meter earthen walls. 'I'm sure research and development would be able to mock something up for you, although you might not be happy with that sacrifices required.' Amarant responded reclaiming his sword and started slowly walking towards the two. 'I take it that means no questions so lets see how 'up for this challenge' you actually are.' Amarant continues increasing his pace.

In an instant Amarant's three wings blazed alight as a mixture of fire and kinetic dust pulsed out and the old man was flung forward. Charging towards Lyssa, Amarant broke off just before contact and swapping the exhaust to ice dust hoping to in case the huntress in training in ice before landing and turning to face Solaris. Keeping up his quick pace Amarant lunged forward with a trio of quick slashes.

'Holy shit.'

That was all that went through Lyssa's mind for the first few moments after she realized who exactly they would be fighting. Suddenly, this was no longer just a somewhat special fight. For all she knew, she could never get another chance like this again. While she remained calm on the exterior, she couldn't help but wonder briefly if she was in over her head, a thought that rarely ever crossed her mind. However, even if she were to get absolutely stomped in this fight, it could still teach her a thing or two. She still intended to use every bit of her strength to keep that from happening.

Once he had finished talking, Lyssa glanced over at Solaris, the bird comment earning a quiet chuckle from her. "That's a shame, I was hoping I'd get to see you take off into the sky at some point." But really, what was the point of bird faunus if their wings were useless? Whatever, that wasn't very important at the moment. She drew one of her pistols, quickly swapping out the rounds in it for dust-infused ones that came from one of her vest's many pockets.

"We'll just have to bring him down here. If we can't, there won't be a whole lot I can do to assist. Let's see if ice does the trick." After finishing, she holstered it and repeated the process for the second revolver before finally redrawing the first. With both loaded guns held at her sides, she simply stared at their opponent, waiting for the match to begin.

Amane gives a two finger salute to Prism while continuing to hold the treeline until everyone is fully retreated, then lowers her rifle and rendevous with the group. While she listened to Ferus and Prism talk, she reached into her backpack and pulled out her water bottle, offering it to Coco.

Spoiler: Some pictures • show


Mikado was born in a rather big village in the south of remnant. He never got to know his mother and he lived his whole life with his father, Of course there were times when he asked about his mother but his father always avoided the question, up to the day he died.

Mikado was 12 years old when it happened. He just bought some food when a terrorist attack left the village in panic. Everything happened so fast. There was a huge explosion caused by dust in the center of the village. About 3 houses were completely destroyed with only corpses buried under the rubble. Other buildings broke down or were just barely standing. The panic lured the Grimm to the village. Nearly everything was present. Beowolves, Nevermores and more.

The Grimm started destroying houses and killing people, but Mikado’s thought about something else. The dust explosion went off near his house! His father was still at home! Mikado started running. The Grimm luckily were busy killing others and didn't pay so much attention to him. He ran around the last corner, only to see his father, buried under a wooden beam. Mikado ran to him, shakes him and screamed at him to wake up, but he was already death. A loud scream filling the air and Mikado saw a monster, a Grimm, but not any. He never heard about a Grimm looking like this. He looked like being made out of different typed of animals. A Chimera. It had the claws of a hawk, the body of a horse, the head of a lion, a scorpion tail and bat like wings.

He called it the ‚Chimera-Grimm‘. It spotted him and slowly, very slowly looked at him. At the same time another person came up behind him. His name was Jack Tine and he was a huntsmen. They never had Griimm problems before thanks to him, but this time, there were to many Grimm for him to take down alone. Mikado knew Jack really well. He and his father had spent a lot of time with him and they actually became good friends. Jack didn't waste any time. The Chimera-Grimm now started running towards them. Jack grabbed Mikado and threw him over his back. There was no way he could fight that thing, not now, not with the injuries he already had.

Jack used his weapon to swing at a not so broken roof. The second his feet made contact with the roof, the Chimera-Grimm crashed into them and the building collapsed. Just before Mikado lost consciousness he saw a black shadow tackle the Grimm and then everything went black.

Mikado woke up in a cabin which was located in a forest not too far away from his village. Jack, who brought him there told him what happened, that a small dragon trusted the Chimera-Grimm away, allowing him to land a blow in his shoulder, through which they were able to escape. From this day on, Mikado swore himself to become a huntsmen.

He trained everyday with Jack. He learned quickly and could work with all kinds of weapons in short time. In the end he stayed with a bō and Kusarigama. Mikado was also gifted in hand to hand combat, even though he prefers not to uses his fist's in fights.

After those five years Mikado finally took the entry exam and passed with a relatively high score in hand to hand combat, Grimm extermination and passed with an average score at the Academic test


Mikado is a quiet person. He never was good with people and won’t care about making friends or not. He often acts cold and like he didn't care, but if he see's someone gets beaten up he will act, and he won't go easy on him.

Having a conversation with him is almost impossible. Most of his responses are a nod or single word at most. His Dragon Kiro isn't a help there either, more like the opposite. Most people start asking every kind of question about him, not realizing how annoying there are. People mostly will either think of him as a cool or strange person.

Mikado likes dark and quiet places, where he can be alone. He spends his freetime either reading or training.

Even though he is an intelligence boy, he never really pays attention in class. He doesn’t like studying, because he doesn’t see a reason in spending his time for earning stuff he might don’t need ever again.

Aura and Semblance:

Aura Color: Black

Mikado’s semblance is called ‚Spirit Dragon‘
Just like the name says, its a Aura-Dragon which is connected with Mikado through there spirits.
The Semblance name may be Spirit Dragon, but Mikado decided to name the Dragon after the dragon ‚Kiro’ in a not so well known fairytale. Mikado doesn’t need to trigger some events or do something to activate his semblance, it’s just there. Through to Mikado, not spending much time in training with his Aura for defense he more focused on putting everything in his semblance. He managed to hold his semblance up permanently, which leads to Mikado being followed by Kiro 24/7.

To his appearance. In battle Kiro is a Black-Greyish Dragon with the size of a fully grown Quarter Horse. This means, That his height from the bottom up to his shoulders amount to 175cm. He is 569cm wide (If he stretches his wings to both sides) and 843kg heavy. Just like the dragons in different stories, does Kiro have Scale’s, horns, a tail and of course, wings.

Outside of battle he turns into a more rabbit sized form. Keeping him up for more than 4 hours in his grown up form will get Mikado exhausted up to the point of him not being able so summon him at all. Kiro still has all of his abilities in his smaller form, but a lot weaker and less effective. He still can fly, but not as high and long as in his grown form. He also can still breath fire,ice and lightning even though it’s only a small flame or a small ice breath.

Spoiler: How Kiro looks like • show

Now to his fighting style and other information, but befor this, it need to be said that Kiro is only a 'thing' created by auro. He is just an empty shell which can't do anything without someone telling him to, and this someone is Mikado and Mikaodo only.
Kiro is a defensive fighter and is trained to keep his distance. He either is in the air or on the ground while breathing fire, ice or lightning. To do this he needs to be feed a fire/ice/lightning dust crystal
every day, or his fire/ice/lightning will run out. It also only works with fire, ice and lightning crystals. Kiro apparently also likes the taste of the crystals which leads to Mikado sometimes just gives him one as a treat. Even though he is a defensive fighter he can switch to the offensive and charges at the enemy. Thanks to the long, sharp teeth and claws it isn’t hard to strike. This all looks like a really powerful semblance but it comes with a great disadvantage. Mikado and Kiro are connected through there minds. If Kiro get’s wounded, Mikado will feel the pain, but doesn't get the wound. Imagine someone or something would cut off on of Kiro’s legs, Mikado will still have all his limbs but he would also feel the pain exploding through his leg as if he just lost one. That leads to the next part. Kiro has a good defense, most thanks to the hard scales, but if he suffers a more dangerous attack, which lead him injured or even make him lost on of his limbs, the wound needs to take depending on how great the damage was half a day until two days to recover. The ‚pain-linking‘ between those two may only be one-sided (Kiro -> Mikado) But if Mikado would lose consciousness Kiro simply will disappear. That's also the case if Mikado is sleeping.

Mikado’s semblance also has a limited reach. If Kiro is more than 3km away from Mikado, he will simply disappear. Kiro will only listen to Mikado and will do everything he tells him to. Mikado also taught Kiro commands like *warte* (wait) *Fackel* (using his fire breath) or *Fass* (Telling him to attack with his claws/teeth)

One of the things you can’t do with Kiro is flying. Neither Mikado nor somebody else will ever be able to ride on him. If someone tries to ride on his back, he will jump and roll around until the person on his back let go. Outside of battle Mikado tends to ‚Talk‘ to Kiro, even if Kiro can’t answer him, Mikado will know what he wants to say.

Combat Behavior:

Mikado isn’t a team player. He never was. He learned to fight alone and only with his dragon.
He is a skilled pugilism fighter, but he doesn't use his fists in fights often. He will use his weapon Pocky, while Kiro fights besides him.

He won’t listen to the leader and goes into fights with his own plan.

Mikado is swift and maneuverable, is also quiet and good in creeping up which are all plus points for the fight. His most dangerous weak point is his semblance. Through the pain linking between Kiro and Mikado it is possible to disabled him for rest of the fight, if the attack is strong enough to take Kiro down.
Apart from this, his only other weaknesses are his bad endurance and his stubbornness.


Name: Pocky

Primary Form:

Spoiler: Picture • show

Pocky is a bō staff, which has an extendable blade. It’s 182cm long and is made out of light metal. He carries it around on his back.

Secondary Form:

Pocky’s second form is a Kusarigama. He normally swings the weighted chain in a circle over his head till he swings it toward the opponent to entangle his weapon or to immobilizing there arms or legs. This will allow him to strike with the sickle.

Dust Functions

Fire The Blade (In both forms) will go up in flames

Ice The blade will freeze the ground on impact


(The Blade of the Bō need's to be pulled in for the transformation.)
The darker part of his weapon is like a shell where the Kusarigama is in. You grab it on the lighter part and simply pull out the rest. The Part you grabbed it on is the weighted end of the Kusarigama chain and the extendable blade of the Bō turns to the sickle of the Kusarigama.


Jack taught Mikado how to use and build weapons. It took him some time to create Pocky but the second he finished it, he was able to use  it perfectly and without any problems.

Definitely a sex thing.

"Imagination..." he repeated to himself, his eyes tracking Juno's hand as it traveled up Akel's hair and wound up at her ears. His jaw hung open as the scratches began - even more so at the bat girl's reaction to said scratches. This dude was living the dream, man.

He twitched a little and smacked his own cheek in order to snap out of the trance-like state the sight had put him in. Forcing himself to look away from the girl, stuffing his sweaty palms into his pockets to resist the ever increasing urge to just... Touch those ears.

"Uhh, I'm guessing you two have stuff to stra- Catch on. Catch up on. I'll just..." he forced out, awkwardly pulling one hand out of his pockets in order to point somewhere. Anywhere. At this rate he'd just pass out if he stayed in the courtyard.

"Yeah, we do!" Prism confirms Coco's words, before letting go of his hand. Turning away from him, Prism gives a small squawk of surprise as she's slightly tacked by Jocelyn's overenthusiastic hug. Blinking for a moment, she barely has time to wrap her arms around the girl in return and murmur "Don't - don't mention it." before she pulls away. Prism stares at her shy teammate for a moment, blinking, before turning to the professor as he approaches.

The hummingbird faunus smiles as he compliments their teamwork already, but it disappears as he asks what could've gone better. She tilts her head, thinking for moment, before lifting a hand to count off the issues as she speaks. "Firstly, stationary snipers are dead snipers - that's a rule I try to live by. We shouldn't have assumed Jocelyn was safe in the back lines, and we should've gotten her up and moving sooner. We otherwise wouldn't have had her nearly squashed. I'm sorry about that, by the way." She nods to the healer, her expression apologetic. "Secondly, I feel like we could've been more coordinated. Everyone was in separate places on the ground, and bailing each other out of trouble was a bit hard, especially in Amane and Coco's case - hopefully no more scenarios where we end up with Amane dangling off a cliff without help, or Coco being cornered by three grimm like that. Thirdly... we need to work out a better way to take out large grimm like the Beringal as a team, and possibly multiple at a time. We're not always going to have bombs lying around."

"That might not be the best idea, I think he's the type with a very vivid imagination." Akel joked as she receives the soft scratching, a soft, heartwarming smile on her face as she looked up at Juno. She coulen't help but think that there was something Juno wanted to discuss, it might of been her comment about "a bit further" since that was mostly to poke at Coconut or it might of been something beforehand, but for now it was best to just help Juno unwind.

"Don't stop. It feels too good." Akel had wished she had worn her earpieces instead, the scratching felt soooo much better since her ears rarely, if ever, received any type of physical stimulus due to the passive nature of her semblabce and the tech based countermeasure against it.

Before Amarant could speak, Solaris already knew his location thanks to EYES and had drawn her sword, she had taken a step back while her shield activated, the air around Solaris instantly felt hot as she got ready for action, "hmm, I'm up for the challenge." Solaris looked at Lyssa's guns, she had one idea that could work, however the fact that their opponent could fly made it troublesome to say the least, 'his wings are priority' Solaris thought and hoped Lyssa had the same idea.

Solaris activated her visor, covering her face as the hud activated and showed all of the data that the bird was transmitting, most important part was that Amarant appeared with an outline on himself and as would make it easier to track him despite his flight advantage. Normally Solaris was against relying on this tech, but, facing the current headmaster of Atlas, not to mention the former commander of the Atlesian Specialists was going to be a challenge. "Ironic that the human can fly and the bird faunus is grounded, isn't it?" Solaris said casually with her blade at the ready.
