Watching as Jocelyn stood up, Prism slowly unfolded as she paced towards the middle of the roof. She blinks at the question, then blinks again - and snorts. "Y-yeah, that sounds like a good distraction. See what kinda fighting machine we can turn you into, eh?" Prism at least attempts a joke, pushing herself up off the ground before padding towards her.

"I don't promise to be the best teacher, since well - kinda self-taught and all, but I can definitely teach you how to take down a bigger opponent. Because that's like, everyone for me. Now if I remember correctly, you know... kinda nothing. So we can start with blocking and dodging, and then move onto actually punching someone?" She stands across from Jocelyn, automatically sliding into a defensive stance - subconsciously demonstrating the best way to start.

From the distance the tall wooden gate of a village could be seen. Though it was hard to tell because the gate was built within the mouth of a huge cave. The barrel of a gun could be seen sticking out of a hole right atop the gate. "Who are you? State your name and business" barked a voice coming from the hole.

Spoiler: show
"For a long time I just practiced playing the guitar by myself. I played in the ruins of some destroyed buildings where no one could find or hear me. But whenever I would play every now and then I couldn't help but feel someone was watching me. For the longest time it scared me, I thought someone would one day come and take away my treasure and tell me to I could never play again. I couldn't explain it but I just knew someone was nearby and it would only happen when I was playing. It made me not want to play, that feeling of not knowing what they wanted or what they were going to do. But one day they gave them self away. I heard a crashing noise from nearby, like something falling, I went to look what it was and you can figure out who it is right!?"  she said excitedly. "It was Gaud falling asleep standing up!" Cami said giggling at the memory. "Can you believe it she fell asleep falling down and still didn't wake up! Everyone in the village knew who Gaud was but she and I were so different and we'd never talked before I was so confused"

"Hmm." Jocelyn watched Prism shrink up again, though not as much as before. She probably needed to change the topic before Prism relapsed - besides, that was her last Ice Dust crystal, and she wasn't having Prism go through another panic attack and not being able to help.

"Got it - Prism, cmere, will ya?" Jocelyn beckoned the girl over to her, walking away from the wall and nearer to the middle of the roof. "Since we have time before lessons, how about giving me a hand with something I'm completely and utterly useless at?" She unbuckled her med kit and dropped it to the floor, rocking back and forth on the soles of her feet. "I'm referring to a bit of hand-to-hand fighting."

Graham couldn't believe it. He got to blow off steam and had a clone from the professor to cover his ass. How often was it that one could let loose and not have to worry about his backside being attacked by some unwelcome entity? Calling up his semblance he targeted the nearest Beowolf, causing both to glow red in his and the Grimm's eyes, then waiting for it to come closer before drawing his blade and neatly slicing a horizontal line across its waist where it was thinnest, felling the Beowolf and returning the blade to its sheath. Hell, that was easy.

Despite the opportunity for the pursued to ambush their pursuer, the cloaked figure did not take it. Instead only continuing to flee and put as much distance from the group as possible. Being the only one to not fall from the buildings, Sean at the moment was the closest to the target

"Waargh!" Solar cried out as she tumbled off the building with Suna. She steeled herself for the fall but found her fall suddenly broken by a tower of sand. "Wow cool you did that?" Solar asked rhetorically at Suna. She was always jealous of flashy semblances and in this situation she felt she had to show Suna what she was also capable of. Because of her own clumsiness not only did she lost distance to their target but she ended up dragging Suna down with her.

So she moved.

A glow of orange emanated from her hands and her feet, she ran along side Suna for a moment to let herself charge."Sandy! Catch him for me will you?" Solar said to Suna, never having introduced to each other she remembered his picture on the team but forgot his name. With a yank Solar grabbed Suna by the Collar and with the force of an explosion both Solar and Suna were suddenly thrown into the air by the charge from her feet. Now airborne Solar had a clear view of the cloak and Sean. "Fly!" Solar cried and with the charge on her arms she threw Suna at the cloak making him a human projectile.
Before she could see where Suna landed, gravity took hold and Solar fell to the ground with a hard bounce. "Ow forget about that" she said to herself and she rubbed her lower back where she landed. She had to wait for her strength to return for a moment before she could continue to follow after Sean, her breathing was heavy and her body wouldn't listen but she noticed the police vehicle that suddenly pulled right along side her.
"Ha! that was easy your under arrest" the Officer declared as he reached for his handcuffs.

Prism snorts a little as Jocelyn facepalms, giving her half a smile. "In your defense, it was a pretty cheesy goal on my part, and you just responded well in turn. But thank you, the comradery is... appreciated. A lot." That last part gets a proper smile out of Prism, nudging Jocelyn's shoulder with her wing. She turns away again then, expression somewhat more serious.

"Again, thanks for... listening to me. About what... happens. It's hard to hear, but you stuck it out, and I just... really appreciate that. H-hope it goes without saying to uh, maybe keep it on the down l-low for now, but, um- yeah. Now I just need to find a way to w-work around it myself." The last part is a little strained, going back to the previous topic, but Prism keeps it together for the most part - only folding in on herself a bit more, wings raising protectively out of instinct.

As Prism explains her goals for the team, Jocelyn's face brightens but her mood drops. She'd seen the utter lack of upper years compared to them as first years, and there could only be one reason why. And if upper years couldn't handle the threat of Grimm--people with the skills, weapons, technology and Semblances capable of levelling buildings--there would only be one eventual outcome.

But then again...the fact that there were teams in the upper years proved humanity's resilience. And while the odds were against them, the odds were almost always against them in the first place. "We'll make it, Prism." She gave her a warm smile. "Together."

A few seconds passed before she slapped her hand on her forehead. "That sounded really cheesy."

Kisha held her scroll in front of her as she accepted the incoming call of the professor and was quickly greeted by his voice.
"Everything's going a-ok so far, Professor Budonoki. I will now start to take a closer look around the area. There are a few bigger mountains that stand out here and you probably have a great view over everything from up there, so this is where I start." She answered, holding her scroll up, trying to get a better signl. Hopefully what she said also came through well on the other side.

Her plan was quite simple. She would first provide an overview of the mountains and look for anything conspicuous, a large cave, for example. From there it would be a bit more complicated, either she found something to look for and would start there with her search, or she would move to the next mountain, hoping that she had more luck there.
Not only does she have to pay attention for any kind of sign from the storm walker or Halard Jacobson, but also look for a place for the night. She couldn't expect everything to go smoothly and that she finds the Huntsmen directly and bring him home, so she needs a sheltered for the night.
But there was enough time for this later, right now, the most important thing was to get to the highest point and take a closer look around the mountans.
Although this plan had some gaps and was not really mature, it left enough space for any kind of improvisations and changes.

Still with her hands in the air, she stared at the holo screen of her scroll to see if the professor had anything important to say before she begins her search.

"WATCH OUT!" Gray called to Leona as the Beowolve's made for her. He fired his loaded arrow straight at the most central of the four hoping to take out more than one with the blast.

"It isn't much to go on but it means stealth is likely out. I assume the way this ambush has been planned would be by adjusting the coding on the machines and simply inverting their targeting. I think the best bet would be to find train tracks and follow them until one appears so that we can aquire further details."
