Kirkka was a little bummed that the four were all very motivated to jump out of a plane. She didn't even get to boot anyone out! Next time, she hoped.

Dismissing that thought, she sealed the hatch and kept watch through the windows as the Air Bus circled the landing site slowly.



The four students crashed down upon the pack of Grimm, inflicting multiple casualties instantly. Several of the creatures were stunned by some of their explosive attacks but were recovering quickly.

Akel stood ready to fight the several beowolves surrounding her. Two of them were caught up in the flames but managed to remember the stop, drop and roll they were taught in Grimm Academy. They looked pretty singed and already weak, but they still had claws. There were only three of them focused on Akel, but they all leaped in at once, intent on catching her by surrounding her.

Not too far away, Airi blasted the particularly large Ursa and one smaller one away from her, sending them both tumbling. The large one recovered nearly instantly and was already charging to counter attack with a powerful swipe. On the ground, this Ursa was huge. Possibly the largest you've ever seen. His bone armor protected a significant amount of his body, with spikes protruding out from his back, some of them nearing three feet in length. It was powerful looking as well. The strength behind its upcoming attack would be brutal. [Protection from Instant Kill]

The second Ursa, a normal sized one, had recovered slightly later but was beginning to move toward Graham. Alongside the beast was two Creeps, charging at the same target. Creeps were weak but fast, relying on powerful headbutts and quick claw strikes to follow up. The creeps were nearly upon Graham as they prepared to boop him with the hardened bone on their heads.

The remains of several Grimm smoldered all around Fallow, their smoke mixing with the smoke from the explosion that crushed them. The blast was quite loud, but the sound over it was trumped by the screeching that was heard just moments afterward. In the distance under a small patch of trees, a large pack of Creeps popped out of the ground and were charging at Fallow. Nearly twenty in total. They were still a fair distance out, but were closing very fast and were fairly well spread out. Taking them all out at once would be challenging but not impossible. The real issue is the time limit. There's barely enough time to get one attack off before they reach Fallow.



Kirkka stood behind one window in the Air Bus and simply raised her eyebrow at the sudden appearance of the additional Creeps.

Akel was quick to act. She spun on her heels and stabbed one of the beowolves bringing it up into the air and brought it into one of the other beowolves and let the scythe hit the ground with. Without time to pull her scythe out she pulled the sword contained within the scythe and slashed the grimm along its body as it flew over her. Quickly inserting the sword back into the scythe and taking it out of the ground without the threat of beowolves ready to claw her.

"Now who needs help?" A question that was mostly directed at herself but was open for anyone to answer if they needed it.

As the smaller Ursa began to lumber toward Graham, he noticed the two Creeps joining the fray, rushing him at a speed he wished was just that bit slower. Anyway, he crouched, the sheath of his tachi moving away from his body, his right hand around the trigger and his body tensed, before squeezing the trigger, using the Kinetic Dust ejected from that shot to draw and slice the oncoming Creeps at high velocity. As he stood crouched, his left arm straight with the sword outstretched, the two Creeps dissipated, their remains turning into that familiar black powder. While the Ursa kept moving toward him, Graham moved the sword up to the right of his face in a two-handed grip and charged it.

"Of course it's going to be the big one," commented Airi to herself as the exceptionally large Ursa charged her.  With a semblance and fighting style such as hers, there was no use to attack the Ursa head on.  She was not a brawler and would not be able to stand against its raw power in a head-on attack.  With this Airi tried to run and create some distance between her and it, leaving behind a time remnant as she did so. "Five seconds," she made a mental note to herself.  Obviously, she wasn't going to outrun a charging Ursa in a straight line, so Airi frequently changed directions as she ran, leaving time remnants every time she changed direction. "One second!" she screamed to herself as she was sure that the faster Ursa was just about to catch up to her.

Damn. Need more time. though Fallow as he saw the approaching creeps. shortly afterwards a plan came into his mind and a spell was in his hand. a slight hop from the ground and Fallow was free to be propelled by his spell. In midair he made a forceful pushing gesture in the direction of the creeps the force sending a blast with a 2 meter diameter into the center of the Grimm the blast also propelling him backwards towards Akel. unfortunately Fallow had needed to act quickly and not planned a method for him to stick the landing. As a result when his feet touched the ground his momentum kept him going skidding along the ground for a couple of meters before he fall backwards and rolled eventually finding himself planted firmly on his ass.

Overall, the battle was a turning out a little different than one might usually expect. The Grimm were being even more aggressive than average. While they tend to do nothing but seek to destroy, these ones ran like their butts were on fire.



As the dust cleared, more than a few of the swarm of Creeps survived Fallow's attack. There were 15 of them still running at full speed toward both Fallow and Akeldama. Two more were recovering from the blast, and it looks like three did not survive. The distance Fallow gained from knocking himself back gave him a few extra moments, but being on the ground meant extra time spent. Standing up is time-consuming!


The massive Ursa caught up to Airi a little sooner than she anticipated. It did not seem to pay any attention to the time remnants left Airi was leaving behind. With one of its claws, it swept at her legs to bring her off balance while its right fore leg came downward, its claws fully extended as it attempted to crush her into the ground.


Graham and the smaller Ursa met rapidly, and the Ursa swiped with both of its fore legs from opposing directions, an attempt to grab Graham and impale him on its lengthy claws.

Snorting almost in contempt, Graham used the time between when they met to activate his semblance, causing the Ursa to glow red in his vision. Before the Ursa could even reach him, he thrust his tachi forward, straight into the Ursa's head, outreaching the pair of claws so they swiped fruitlessly at thin air. Yanking the blade out of the skull, Graham proceeded to stab the head several more times until the Ursa collapsed on the floor and began to dissolve. Then, running the tachi back into its sheath, he simply stood there, looking around at the remaining fights.

"Guess that solves my own question." Akel quickly charged towards the Creeps. She held her scythe horizontally and spun it around her, stabbing one in the side of the head and continuing her momentum. After all, Akel is the leader of team BTRA and Fallow was a team member under her, protecting her team members was simply a duty she should do.

As the Creeps went towards her the scythe went into another head of a Creep. Using her left arm to stop the scythe and spun in the other direction to use the blunt end of the scythe to deliver a decisive strike to another. She didn't stop attacking any of the Creeps that came in her direction and diverted all of her attention to which Creep was going to attack and how to kill the next Creep that would follow through.

Upon feeling her footing, swept out from under her by the Ursa, Airi immediately activated her semblance, sending her back one second prior.  Once again, a small shockwave ensued, and as before, it was only enough to knock enemies away and not enough to seriously harm them.  Appearing behind the large Ursa, the shockwave knocked it forwards.  Taking the opportunity, Airi stabbed Atropos into the one of the Ursa's calves, piercing it in between several plates that necessarily had a gap in between them in order to allow for muscle flexibility.  Expecting the Ursa to roar in pain, she leaped onto the back of the off-balance Grimm and unlocked the spool of filament that she kept around her right hip.  With Fateweaver as her thread guide, she brought the filament in between the Grimm's jaws, suing the filament as an impromptu bit that dug deep into the flesh of the Ursa's cheeks, giving it a sort of Glasgow smile.  Clutching the filaments in the armored grasp of Fateweaver, Airi looked back behind her, keeping track of the Ursa's flailing arms, lest she be caught in its wild blows, while also keeping track of her time remnants as they gradually caught up with her.

Seeing Akel leap to his defense Fallow rose to his feet before moving to help deal with the Grimm his ally had moved to take on in his place. He placed a hand on Akel's shoulder and paused for a brief moment to allow her to know that he was there and hopefully indicate to her what he was about to do before he pushed down slightly and leaped over her while drawing lulu with his other hand and flicking the blade open slashing into a creep as he landed. Without slowing down he pressed off with his left foot before his other one even touched the ground using his off-hand to springboard once again flicking Lulu in the direction of another creep as he did so.

The swarm of Creeps fell one after another under the combined assault from Akeldama and Fallow. There were 7 left, but they had halted their charge and were now sprinting away at high speed, back the way they came.

A short distance away Graham stood near his most recent kill as it slowly began its disintegration process. And not too far away from him was Airi, riding a giant Ursa. The situation looked a little precarious. She was able to avoid several of the massive grimm's overhead grabs, but after six or seven attempts at grabbing her, the Ursa tried something different. It spun around half a turn, throwing itself off balance as it did, and landing on its back. The huge spikes that Airi was using to stand on were pointy and numerous. Getting caught underneath would be quite awful. The momentum the Ursa had was enough to allow it to continue rolling, however, and it was already on all fours, looking to face Airi head on once again.

Overhead, the Air Bus loomed, casting no shadow on the battlefield due to the sun being so low on the horizon still. Kirkka was still watching from the window calmly. Her eyes were fixated on the fleeing Creeps, however.

Noticing the remaining Creeps retreating--which was highly unusual for mindless killing beasts, but he took no notice of it at the time-- Graham stuck his hand in his pocket and withdrew his butterfly tanto, flicking it open and spinning it on the top of his hand, before flinging it toward one of the running Creeps. It hit, but with the handle end, only eliciting a strange noise from the beast. He decided against giving a hand with that Ursa for the moment, opting instead to retrieve his knife.

Akel's first thought was to chase the fleeing Creeps. After all the mission was officially labelled as 'Grimm extermination', but grimm classes never told of Creeps usually running away. "Fallow, I don't have many ranged options so I wsnt you to clesr the rest of thise Creeps. Don't chase after if they get too far. Something is giving me a bad feeling."

Akel scanned the area around herself quickly, seeing Airi, Akel thought it would be better to provide assistance against the Ursa. Drawing her sword out from the scythe she pointed it at the Ursa before activating her semblance. Aura condensed into what looked like droplets beside her before she did a lunging motion with her sword and sent the aura based attack towards the Grimm. Admittedly her aim wasn't the greatest so she was more likely to strike an armoured piece but hopefully still pierce if luck was on her side.

Airi did her best to maintain her footing, but with the Ursa bucking around so much, it was impossible for her to do so.  Out of the corner of her eye, she saw Akel using her semblance for a piercing aura strike.  Airi doubted it would hit the Ursa for any significant damage.  However, she also realized that if Akel landed a well-aimed critical strike, the Ursa could possibly be felled.  An idea popped into her mind as she saw her time remnant catching up to her.

As the Ursa rolled onto its back, Airi jumped off it and leaped towards her time remnant, which was by now mid-air, where Airi had previously been climbing the Ursa.  With Timeweaver's threads still the Ursa's mouth, Airi shouted to Akel, "Hit it again.  Make it count!"  Airi then made contact with her time remnant and was immediately frozen in stasis mid-air.  An aura of dynamic, yet somehow serene otherworldliness enveloped the third-year.  However, it wasn't just Airi herself that was frozen.  Timeweaver's threads, which were still attached to Airi's clawed gauntlet and spool was similarly stuck in chrono-stasis, completely removed from any and all interaction with the current time frame.  This made the threads utterly immovable, and with them still caught in the Ursa's mouth, the Ursa's head was also stuck in place.  Though not frozen in stasis as Airi and the threads were, no matter how much it would struggle, the Ursa would not be able to wrench its head free from the threads.  Akel now had her perfect chance.

Fallow gave a nod to Akel and turned to the fleeing Grimm with book in hand once more. a hand ran across the page before Fallow extended his index and middle finger pointing at the ground in front of the creeps. A 10 meter line of dust appeared before them in their path. Fallow's hand opened and then immediately closed activating the dust and sending fire right into the underside of the fleeing Grimm.
