The goons didn't resist, having understood that they were outmatched here. The wounded ones were shivering, one of them quietly muttering his thanks to the two huntresses patching him up while the other has started sniffling and crying.

Royale tossed a single glance into the office to check on them. He wondered where Whitaker had found these men, as they seemed to be utterly incompetent and unprepared. But, there would be time to investigate this later.

For now, he hoisted his hostage up, turning to face the students. He first spoke to Rory:

"No, I didn't. I do not intend to lie to you anymore. I had been suspicious of Whitaker for months now, but, up until today, I kept my suspicions to myself. Just three weeks ago, he had reported a massive increase in spending, yet I couldn't tell where he got the money from, and something about where the money went didn't add up. So, when he invited me for a meeting, well. I decided I needed backup if worse came to worst. And here we are now."

He then patted the goon still in the hall on the shoulder. "But, we should be alright now. This gentleman here will help us get downstairs without the need for a fight."

With that, Marvin started leading the way towards the stairs, leaving the students and confused goon behind. Presumably, he expected one of the kids to help move the guy along if he didn't follow.

The group wouldn't encounter any resistance along the way, but, as they reached the door at the bottom of the stairs, Marvin raised his hand, ordering everyone to halt. To get to the basement, they'd have to get through the foyer.

"Ah, how rude of me - what is your name, sir?" he asked, turning to face their hostage.

"Uh. Winston."

"Alright, Winston, it's good to meet you! What I'll need you to do, is go through that door with your hands up. Let the other guards know that they are dealing with five huntsmen. I don't think it matters how much Whitaker is paying you. They should realize they stand no chance. Tell them to drop their weapons, and we will be on our way down. You can all be off the hook, then."

Winston swallowed a glob of saliva which had collected at the back of his throat, and nodded. "O-okay."

The man followed these orders, stepping through the door. A few moments passed in silence.

"H-hey, guys, listen! We need to drop our weapons, there are five huntsmen, and they alre-"

Winston was cut off by a gunshot, his words turning into a garbled mess. Royale's eyes widened as the man stumbled back, clutching at his throat, blood gushing from it.

"Oh, no, no, no! You can't give up now, boys, the fun has just begun!" A slightly high-pitched voice came from out the door. If one were to peek through the doorway, they'd see around a dozen armed thugs, each holding a rifle. In front of them all stood a person dressed in a violet, sleevless shirt, two pistols in their hands. It was hard to tell if the person was male or female, with androgynous features, the right side of their head shaved and the left bearing long, curled hair.

Marvin took a breath, then turned to face the group.

"Rory, I'm afraid we'll need you to take lead here for a moment with your shields. The rest of you, stick behind him. I'll try and take out the bastard in the middle. Try not to kill anyone - Nobody else has to die." His voice was calm and commanding, even after witnessing Winston's death before him. It made him seem cold. "We can get backup from my guards once the foyer is clear."

So, confirmation and an admission from Royale. It didn't help their current situation, of course, but at least now the truth was out there. Rory logged the duplicitous nature of this whole fiasco away in the back of his mind as he kept a weather eye on the man he'd later come to know as Winston. This entire situation was just a blood-soaked power play between two ruthless businessmen, the only appreciable differences being that Royale led his "pawns" from the front and tried not to waste them whereas Whitaker seemed content to stay out of harm's reach and let his pawns suffer come-what-may. Their side's "leader" wasn't exactly winning brownie points in Rory's book, but he did feel somewhat more like he and his fellow students were likely to live through this.

Up until Winston died, that is.

With the second dead body of the day laying in front of them and Royale saying Rory was next up, the shield fighter felt a lump form in the back on his throat while his mind spun at a mile a minute. Whitaker's goons had a lash, it seemed -- someone to keep them in line and assure loyalty, probably a mercenary meant to level the field in the event Royale fought back and survived the initial ambush. And now that Winston had tried and failed the enemies in the foyer would be ready... if the students didn't come to them, they would probably try to take the fight into the stairwell. Neither ground really favored them in this fight.

"All due respect, Mr Royale, if they're dug in up ahead I'm not sure how long my shields will hold -- or how many people I can realistically block for at one time." He wasn't about to leave his fellow students exposed to a wall of guns if there was any better options on the table. Switching his goggles to thermal imaging, Rory glanced around to see what he could glean of his surroundings. The walls weren't thin enough to see the heat signatures of anyone on the other side, but he could make out the hot and cold water lines as well as the electrical mains. "There are water pipes and live circuitry just on the other side of this wall... maybe we can use that somehow to gain an advantage." It was then that he realized that he still had a full-bars connection to the CCTS... and a plan began to formulate.

"Everybody hold tight -- I have an idea."

Every Beacon student was issued several things by the academy as a simple matter of course. One of those was a locker. An armored locker with a built-in launch and guidance system which could be triggered remotely. Switching his goggles to the appropriate Scroll function, Rory sent out a call for his locker and, after a quick bit of map-checking and a few calculations, input some very specific coordinates. "Okay, wait for my signal..." Shields out and ready, Rory watched the seconds tick down on his display, until...

The tense stillness was shattered -- violently -- as Rory's rocket-locker came smashing through the windows on the opposite side of the foyer; immediately afterwards Rory gave the signal to move. With the enemy momentarily distracted the group had a decent chance to seize the advantage and take the room, if they acted quickly. With his shields at the ready Rory did his utmost to put himself between his allies and enemy fire as the students and Royale advanced into the foyer.

Aoife swore violently once more as she watched Winston collapse and choke on his own blood, feeling firey rage explode in her heart. It'd been boiling since Royale's revelation that he'd expected there to be some sort of fight, but the death of an innocent man sent her over the edge. Well, not innocent really, but he didn't deserve to die, not like that, and it was more than enough to blow any of Aoife's prior shocks and concerns out of the water in favour of wholeheartedly tearing these guys apart. Funny how cold-blooded murder was all it took to become a fair target.

Stepping up beside the doorway as she waited for Rory's plan to come to fruition, Aoife saw an opportunity to cause a bit more ruckus. Leaving her newly acquired rifle in her off hand and drawing her revolver, she pointed into the room at an angle and took a deep breath. A faint red light began to trace its way down along Aoife's arm, over her hand and into her gun, turning the barrel into a weak torch almost, before she pulled the trigger. The light, now much brighter, erupted from the Ace of Roses and tore through the doorway and across the room, ricochetting off of the opposing wall and the ceiling to then bounce off of the head on one of the guards on the androgynous person's right, where it continued to bounce harmlessly around the room until it shot through one of the windows.

Aoife took the ensuing chaos as a chance to pop around the doorway and use her new rifle to lay down some suppressing fire on the guards to her right, aiming to give the others some breathing room to advance to a better position.

Mythos just looked on as she saw the line appear in her vision lined up at Winston's head. She had drawn out her revolver and went through her ammo, pulling out the next few bullets on two of the revolvers and replacing them with Flash rounds to give an initial rush and would allow them to get out of the mess.

She listened to Rory with his plan and looked at his scroll seeing the pop-up for the rocket-propelled locker to be called in. Moving slightly closer to the wall and at the moment that she heard the sound of the locker making its entrance she shot two flash rounds from her revolvers, aimed at the ground of the head honcho. Using the opportunity of suppressing fire provided by Aiofe she went to her right. Mythos used her semblance to stay out of Aiofe's fire while Mythos covered her eyes to shoot off two flash rounds in quick succession and not blind herself.

She followed through with an uppercut to one guard as she grabbed the flashbang that hung on the top strap of her backpack and launched it over to the left while her other hand shot off several bullets to the legs of any of the visible guards and following through with her other revolver to deal with their aura and another bullet delivered to their legs and if need be; their hands to disarm them of their weapon. She hid behind a pillar to protect herself from any incoming fire after her barrage as she switched to her rifle and put it in full-auto fire mode.

Again, Mae had to see another guard die in front of her, a guard that probably had a family at home waiting for him, and they never talk to him again because his own superior officer shot him in the throat. This realization made Mae more furious than she had ever been in her entire life, enough to make her grit her teeth and growl in anger and frustration.

As she listened to Rory's plan and waited for his signal, the girl decided to get ready to breach the room. Mae grabbed her canister of fire-dust ammo and her new revolver, her face blank and emotionless as she heard Rory's rocket locker crash into the next room, along with gunfire from her other two team-mates.

After Mythos and Aoife had fired their shots, Mae came through the doorway and threw her dust canister towards the coalition of guards that Aoife was suppressing with rifle fire. Without hesitation, and out of spite for men that would sit by and watch a comrade die, she aimed her revolver and shot the dust canister, causing a grenade-like explosion to rock the building and blow away the surrounding guards into nearby walls. Mae returned to her original position after she threw the grenade, keeping her new revolver out as she drew her crossbow and loaded it with her ice bolts.

Marvin nodded. "Alright, Rory. I'll be counting on you, then," he said, readying his gun. He waited patiently for the boy's plan to take effect, his own back pressed against the wall, gun at his side. From the foyer, they could hear footsteps, slowly drawing closer. It was  the androgynous gunman, slowly approaching them.

"Come on, now, boys, come out and play already!" they called out, just moments before the locker came crashing in through the window.

There was momentary panic among the gunmen as they scrambled to get out of the locker's flight path and avoid getting cut by the glass. One of these men was struck in the back of the head by Aoife's shot and fell forward - not yet unconscious, but definitely stunned. The other guards, still confused, didn't know how to react to the following stream of bullets, two falling to the ground, one of them screaming as a stray bullet struck him in the leg, while another barely got his aura up in time before a bullet hit his chest.

Two more remained standing on the right, but had to cover their eyes as the bright flash from Mythos' shots blinded them. One of them even dropped his rifle, and was soon punched in the jaw by the girl, making him stumble and fall back on his ass. The other guard, though still not fully recovered, managed to dodge one of Mythos' shots, while the flashbang went off on the left.

Four of the men on the left, who had been fruitlessly trying to hit Rory or anyone standing behind him, were concussed by the flash grenade, but there were three left standing. Well, more accurately - two of them, as one was shot in the leg and collapsed. Another one of Mythos' shots struck one of them right in the back of the hand. With no aura to protect him, blood gushed out from his palm. He dropped his rifle to the ground, clutching his wrist and screaming at the wound. One could wonder if that would really help.

The four concussed gunmen, along with two more men who had nearly been crushed by the locker, were coming back to their senses... Just as the dust canister went off. The men who had already been on the ground were forced against it, forcing the air out of their lungs and likely shattering some ribs. Meanwhile the two men standing on the left, including the one who had been shot in the hand, were flung away - the injured one was slammed against the wall, while the other crashed through one of the windows at the front.

As it now stood, there were four men still capable of fighting alongside their androgynous leader - two of them were now getting up near the locker, one was currently opening fire on the pillar which Mythos was using as cover, and one was scrambling for his gun after being punched by her.

As for the androgynous person themselves... Mythos' flash had done its work. The purple-haired person groaned, covering their eyes with one of their guns. Marvin took his chance.

He ran out soon after Mythos did, past Rory. As he ran towards the gunman, he raised his gun with both hands and fired once, the sound of the .50 shot echoing throughout the building almost as loudly as the dust canister exploding moments later. A more keen observer might notice a brief flash of aura around Marvin's hands as he used it to brace against the immense recoil.

The shot was aimed at the gunman's leg, and it connected, launching it back and resulting in them stumbling, but they had already prepared their aura. They removed the gun from their own eyes, grinning. "Alright, then! Let's dance!" they yelled as Marvin charged at them, going for a right punch.

They weaved to the side and tried to bring up the gun in their left hand, but Marvin was just as quick. He brought his own gun up, knocking their's aside as they fired, the bullet harmlessly hitting the far wall. Marvin continued by going for a pistol-whip, but his oppnent ducked under the swing and jabbed him in the chest. In response, he brought his knee up to their stomach, then swung his pistol back, hitting them in the shoulder.

The gunman then tried to gain distance by jumping back, raised their guns and fired twice, once from each gun. Marvin lunged forward, the bullets flying over him and striking Rory's shield. He tackled the gunman with his shoulder, making them stumble and nearly fall, but leaving his own back exposed. The gunman smacked him on the back of his neck with the butt of his gun, almost forcing him to the ground. As they were about to aim down and fire, however, Marvin grabbed their foot and yanked it. The attacker barely held their balance, and jumped back again.

"Oh, how dirty of you, playing tricks like that!" they called out.

Marvin looked up. "You think that's dirty? Look down, then."

The gunman did so, briefly, and saw their foot... Engulfed in flames. They screamed, stomping their foot in an attempt to remove the flame, the flames seemingly falling off onto the ground. Upon closer inspection, one would see a piece of paper under them, though it seemed entirely unharmed.

Marvin wasted no time, and resumed his assault, now consistently pushing the gunman back, closer to the entrance. He could beat them, but the kids would have to deal with the rest of the goons. He was quite sure they could handle them, however.

The combination of distraction and suppression tactics that the students had strung together had successfully thrown the room into chaos. Rory would have been impressed, but that would require taking time to stop and admire the bedlam while he was right in the middle of it -- not a very safe proposition.

Now, things got dicey. With the initial gambits having run their course the group had no choice but to fight through the remaining resistance. Royale was in the thick of melee with the androgynous thug, and clearly holding his own -- jumping in at this point was more likely to create problems than solve them. Mythos had taken to cover behind a pillar, Aoife was suppressing the enemy from the doorway and Mae was covering between shots; it was a question of where he could be most useful, and Rory knew quickly what he had to do.

Sprinting across the embattled room in a half-crouch behind his shield, Rory closed on the goon that Mythos had decked, kicking the weapon away before carrying the momentum of the kick into a full-body spinning roundhouse aimed to dislocate the shoulder of the gunman's dominant arm. A quick backhanded shield bash follow-through would, if nothing else, keep the thug from reaching his weapon easily -- with a little luck, the force of the blow would be enough to KO him as well.

"Mythos! Mobile cover?" He shouted the offer across the battlefield.

Well, this was certainly going better than expected. Aoife had honestly expected Whitaker's to put up a bit of a better fight, but then again, smashing a locker into a group of people was quite the distraction. Atlas really ought to try weaponising those things, it seemed right up their alley.

Pulled ought of her thoughts by the sight of Rory charging into the fray, Aoife turned her attention back to business. With Mythos pinned down, the course of action seemed pretty clear. Lining up the sights of her rifle, Aoife fired a quick burst at the pair by the locker; more to scare them a bit than do any real harm, and then turned her attention, and the rest of the gun's ammo, onto the poor unfortunate soul that decided to focus on Mythos and not her. It was a shame that her earlier assault had emptied most of the bullets, else he would have been in real trouble. Not that he had much of a chance regardless.

Discarding the now empty rifle, Aoife took off in the direction of Royale and his opponent, trusting in the other's to handle the locker stunned goons. She wasn't planning on jumping in, but flanking to the side and preventing any sort of getaway.

While the gunfire went on her temporary cover Mythos was way too calm, stretching her arms up as she waited for her teammates to deal with the gunman that was shooting in her direction. With her patience, she looked up at Marvin as he duked it out with the androgynous fighter.

With the goon taken care of Mythos peeked her head around the pillar to look around"Sounds good, just focus on blocking the bullets and I'll take care of the rest" Turning her rifle on semi-auto she moved behind Rory and started shooting off rounds into any goon in her sight, aiming for non-vital areas to avoid killing as per Marvin's request.

After putting her revolver away and pulling out her crossbow loaded with frost bolts, Mae ran out and shot some bolts at a few of the stunned guards to immobilize them for her teammates. After that, the Faunus started to drag all of the wounded guards that weren't in the line of Mythos' fire back into the hallway, safe from the combat zone while she tried to apply some minor first aid to their wounds.

The guard Rory was going after stood little chance. The poor guy grabbed at his rifle just as the boy closed in on him, only to have it be flung away. A moment later, the boy's leg struck his shoulder - while it didn't fully dislocate it, it was enough to make him rell back. The following shield strike successfully knocked him out.

As Mythos was leaving her cover, Aoife's shots had reached the gunman going after her. Three hits, one breaking the guy's aura and two more striking him in the legs. He dropped down to his knees groaning, hardly a threat anymore. The two by the locker, however, were still ready to fight. Well, they were for a little while. While Aoife's burst didn't do much to the already disoriented goons, Mythos' followup certainly did. They barely had time to open fire on her first, but their attacks were easily blocked by Rory's shield. One of them was downed by her shots, while the other was wounded. As he stumbled back, he decided it was best for him to just lay down and surrender.

Just then, the front doors swung open as the two guards from Royale's ship ran inside.

"Perimeter secure, sir!" The slightly taller one shouted out through their mask, their voice distorted but still recognizably male.

Marvin smirked as he pushed the androgynous fighter back again. His next swing knocked one of the guns right out of their hand. The gunman snarled.

"Surrender now! You're surrounded!" Marvin roared out in a commanding tone of voice, glancing at Aoife briefly and giving her a quick nod.

The fighter paused. Then cackled, wiping their palm on their forehead. "Oh, wow. You... really are something, aren't you? Well, I think I've bought enough time anyway. We'll have to continue another time!"

The fighter bowed dramatically. Marvin raised his weapon, expecting a surprise attack or for them to run, but when he fired, he was already too late. The fighter's form appeared to be replaced by some sort of light-purple smoke or steam. Moments later the smoke started rising up, towards the shattered windows.

"Target escaping!" Shouted the other guard and raised their weapon. Their voice was higher than the other guard's and rather feminine.

She fired a burst into the smoke, but it barely parted. For a moment, she simply stood motionless as the cloud continued on its merry way out of the window.

"Oroma, Leila, call backup and don't let that smoke out of your sight!" Marvin shouted out as he started moving towards the second set of stairs, reloading his gun as he did. "Mythos, Aoife, Rory, on me! We need to get to Whitaker before he escapes! Mae, make sure the guards are all stable, then join us!"

With that, he started hurrying down the stairs without even looking back. He really had no time to lose. Knowing Whitaker, he was prepared for this - he must have had an escape route already planned. Marvin could only hope that the fight in the foyer hadn't bought him enough time.

Did that man... woman?... did they just turn into smoke and fly away??

Rory couldn't quite believe his eyes as he watched the last of the still-fighting opposition make their escape -- he'd heard of some pretty crazy Semblances, and seen a few at work, but that... it seemed to defy reason and logic, bend the rules of what was physically possible. He couldn't fathom what experiencing that as the user would be like, and part of him didn't really want to know. There wasn't time to contemplate it anyway as Royale's instructions filled the empty soundscape where gunfire and skirmishing had been moments before. Again the students were on the move, now with time against them.

Rory rushed to the forefront, or tried to; in reality he was just barely managing to keep pace behind Royale despite being no slacker in footspeed himself. So this was an experienced Huntsman when urgency struck, then. "Is there any way to interfere with his Semblance?" Given Royale's research and preparations thusfar, it was a coin toss whether the business tycoon would have that info. Every Semblance had rules -- beating one was just a matter of exploiting those rules, ultimately. If Whitaker just needed time to "recharge", then there wasn't any to waste; if he needed that and focus, there might be something they could do en route to delay him.

"Well, that's a neat bit of bullcrap right there", Aoife snarled as Royale's opponent literally vapourised themselves to escape. If she hadn't been so completely blindsided by the sight of it, she probably would've taken a shot at them, not that it had done Royale any good. Unless they happened to get dispersed by the wind outside, Aoife suspected that they'd run into that person again. Whitaker certainly hadn't hired them for their fashion sense after all.

For now, though, Aoife was left to follow Royale and Rory down the stairs, with Rory attempting to find out more about Whitaker's semblance. Which, now that Aoife had a few moments to think about it, didn't sit right. Why hadn't he just poofed away entirely, instead of remaining inside the building? "How tall is this place anyway? Cause if Whitaker went down here specifically, it might tell us the range of his teleporting". Course, Aoife might be overthinking things; this could just be another ambush.

As Mae dragged the last injured guard into the hallway, she began giving all of them minor first aid, enough to hold them until the paramedics and police arrived. She somewhat regretted losing her temper and throwing her fire canister at the poor men, as they weren't the ones who killed Winston, and if they had spoken up, the same fate would've befallen them as well. Using her maternal instincts, the hawk Faunus peacefully patched up most of the guards, the troublesome ones she swiftly knocked out with the butt of her crossbow before treating them.

After she had completed her objective, Mae jogged along to catch up with her allies, being sure to take her time in case there were any hiding hostiles that would ambush the group from behind.

Mythos didn't waste any bullets on the escaping male-guy-girl person. Running along with Royale Mythos couldn't help but think of it as strange. "I find it strange that he'd choose the basement, surely he could have given incorrect information or the woman-man could have left because Whitaker can use his teleportation again. Just saying." Mythos holstered her weapons to pull out her extendable pole into a sword, only bringing the blade up one section as she took a full revolver in her other hand.
