Taste of power[Closed]
« on: June 16, 2017, 09:45:33 PM »
"The infamous bandit clan of Flag was completely annihilated by unknown reasons. According to one of the suspects arrested when the Valish police arrived with the rescue team, something... unexplainable was witnessed. We broke his aura and beehived him, but... but but he regened like we didn't do shit! And he's got flamethrower for arms! It's like the devil! it's the end of our cycle!... The above claim suggested an individual appeared at the clan's fortress before its destruction, but no bodies are found the is not a Flag. This is the third time this month a bandit clan got destroyed..."
Catalina watched the news report. Satisfied by his good deeds he decided to get a walk outside and gather everyone's reaction.

Well, finally something worth watching on this sorry excuse of a news channel. Vermillion thought, a wide grin appearing on his face. Instant annihilation of an entire group by unknown reasons, bullshit. They probably knew it was some grimm attack and were hiding the truth. Stuff like this would cause too much of an emotional reaction for better or for worse, so of course they'd take the safe course and say 'we don't know'. Flipping his hair to one side Vermilion continued his stroll, ignoring further reports in the daily news and tightened his coat on further. The news didn't say anything about a cold front but he was getting chills, not to mention the dead plants back in his dorm room, they seemed pretty lively the day before, maybe his newfound powers had something to do with it. Grinning to himself he touched a concrete wall and frost started forming around the area his hand touched, a not so welcome sign for the guys inside. Nails seemed to start rusting too and weeds wilting around him, a bad omen. He can't rule over dead stuff and shouting about it won't help either. Clenching his fist he briskly walked on, a small chill forming in the air around him.

It was another day for Lix. Well an unexplained day. One thing was that she suddenly could see everything, as if she was the Sun overlooking everything. Another was that she seemed to turn things into other things, to be more specific people. Lix remembers silently cursing some pompous woman, saying she resembled more of a giant pig woman. And next thing she knew Lix was staring at a woman who looked like a deformed Faunus, and it did not make feel any better when the woman came charging at her and started blaming her foe the transformation cause she was the closest and the quietest and also the least prettiest. Last thing was the odd tendency to sneeze out some sort of yellow powder. The girl then discovers it is actually sulfur, a chemical element used to make Atlas's very durable rubber. And she knew that if in contact with fire dust, will explode. Hence why she avoided black pepper cream mushroom soup at the table.

Well at least the weather was okay. Not too warm not too cold for Lix's morning walks in the mountains that border one side of Vale. The Reinhardt castle looks like nothing but a small peak on the mountain it resides on. Lix found a nice tree stump, and a mountain goat chewing the grass near it and sat on the stump to catch up on the news of Vale.
And this was interesting. A reported wipeout of a bandit clan called the Flag. Third time this month as well did such a thing happen. Lox has to praise whoever has been doing it. Serious bravery and serious intelligence to find these clans and raid them. Lix looked up to the sky and suddenly she could see herself from above. She could see herself panicking. But she could still feel her body, she just has some very off vision. Then the next moment she is back to normal vision. Panting a bit from the experience, she pulled up grass and held it out to said goat.

Acero smiled at the bandit clans destruction. Another group of hurtful people bite the dust. He couldn't help but wonder who did it though. Three clans were destroyed in the past month. Was there a self-righteous hunter going around and destroying them? Or was there a more unnatural explanation? Acero thought of these questions as he walked out of his dorm room and saw Vermillion and Catalina, both looking around at the reactions to the news. Acero, decided to walk past Vermillion to see if anything would happen. Sure enough, Acero felt an ice cold chill as he walked past him, and shivered a bit. What the hell was that?, he thought. Acero decided to walk to his teammate, Kei Tsz Fung's dorm to see if he had any answers to the multitude of questions that he had.

He already knew Acero was coming, as well as what he would ask. He also knew about the destruction of the Flag, and the powers of the individual. The dead plants, the frosted wall...all of them. The amount of energy this would have taken would have been extraordinary. Thankfully, there were a number of plugs he could draw power from to use his ability.

When Acero opened the door, Kei did not move from his meditating stance, nor did he open his eyes to see who it was. "It's good to see you, Acero. Is it the latest about the destruction of the Flag that you wish to ask about? Or your new-found powers?" He made a interesting sight, sitting in the middle of the room like a Buddha statue, with tendrils of electricity flowing into him from the plugs around the room.

Ah, there's one that appreciate me. And that guy, he seemed skeptical on my work and thought this is a grimm invasion on them. Good guess, except you didn't read the next part of the news: Their fortress was practically disintegrated because there was a signs of an unholily powerful gust blowing on it. Calculated from the furthest Flag corpse found out a wind of possibly exceeding 500 kilometers per hour. Too bad it's close to a mountain, otherwise they would have figured out from the tree's tilting that it is a tropical storm. Inland.
Somewhat rudely Cat also saw other parts of this guy's mind. This is something he actually have to concentrate, reading memories and subconscious thoughts. So looking from outside Cat just stood still, staring the man into his eyes, staring into him.
Vermillion Desdemona, 19, third year Beacon, raised in a rich huntsman family... Hannah... Oh, this is interesting. A week or so ago all the plants in his room just wilted. It also felt cold just looking in him. Not the personality kind of cold, at least not yet, But just ice cold. He doesn't seem to understand why, but this is not his semblance, nor is his ability to make plants die. Cata delved into this pool of mind to found out more.
Edit: 500 kilometers per hour, not second. That would be way too overpowered.

Vermilion felt slightly annoyed for some reason, as if he were being watched, that or he was just being paranoid. He had the urge to use his new powers way more but having more than one semblance was nigh impossible. Maybe he needed more practice, then again he could indiscriminately attack anything with little effort, making his natural ability almost pale in comparison. Combining powers seemed possible though one of them had a little repercussion...

The ability to decay. Every time he used it he could feel a bit of himself being chipped away as well, not at the same degree but it was still there. Wiping out an entire city by instantly decaying everything nearby would probably do him in, somewhat similar to that bandit hideout, though he could probably just use his other abilities instead. This one would be a last line of defense. The sound ability was odd in that he could fight and manipulate the sounds he makes and it didn't tie in at all to his other abilities. Control over the cold felt more at home with him and his personality but again it was almost naturally attuned to the point where it felt like he was actually part of it. Eerie, even for his tastes.

Vermilion locked eyes with a kid staring at him and quickly glared back, the urge to spear him growing more and more the longer he locked eyes.

"The hell are you looking at?" He shouted, his voice booming through the area, almost to the point of shaking some nearby dangling objects.

While everyone was in one location, Lix had moved on and went through the wall around Vale by its gate. Entering the outskirts of the city, she looked towards the floating island of Beacon. The girl wonders if she could see things that far. Lix looks around and found a cafe to sit at and after ordering a latte, Lix took a look to the sky once again and focused on the sun. And just as she had predicted, Lix has an overhead view of herself stirring her cup of latte. Lix then through her current vision zoomed in on Beacon. It was surprising how much she could see. Any where the sunlight touches was in her sights no matter how far. Returning back to her vision, she needed to test out her abilities a bit more.

Lix walked into the main city, and watched an airship flew overhead in the sky. She could sense sulfur in the ground in small concentrations along the dirt path through the park. Her mind was blown at this point.

Acero gave Kei a confused look and said, "Uh, yes. I was gonna ask you about all of that. I recently became able to manipulate shadows and uh... I can do this too." Acero pointed in pain towards his knees as a bone blade protruded from each one. "Ugh, that never gets any less painful, or weird for that matter. I, uh, also came to tell you that I passed by a guy and he made me feel like I was freezing in the Atlesian alps for a second. Obviously, we both have weird powers. But are we the only ones with these powers? Or are there others at this school with supernatural abilities much like ours?"

 Just as he had finished his sentence, Acero heard someone yelling, quickly followed by some minor shaking. "Welp, that can't be good, can it?"

"No, it can't." Kei agreed, still in his meditating stance. "I can tell you we're not the only ones who have sudden, well, superpowers. You seem to be able to harness the power of shadows to create whips and fly, as well as create natural weaponry." He stated this like it was the most normal thing in the world. "The person that made you think you were freezing goes by the name of Vermillion Desdemona, though I believe you have met." Finally, here he opened his eyes and stared at Acero. "He seems to embody the very element of ice itself. It's another superpower. Unfortunately, it seems neither Savas or Ribeiro have received any powers like our own."

Noticing the shaking before it even reached them, he pondered for a split second, before rising to his feet. "I'm going to defuse the scenario. Do you want to join?" Still absorbing electricity, Kei simultaneously and instantaneously cast a speed symbol on both him and Acero, something he could never have done without his last superpower. He could sense that he had the ability to cast so many more symbols, but he refrained from doing so. Instead, he surged from the room, racing toward Vermillion and Catalina.

Catalina was finding out about this Hannah girl. It seems to be one of the instances of Vitriolic teeth clenched teamwork, but there is more, such as her aggressive tendencies and what just might be affection. Then he realized he needs to withdraw as he heard the roaring inside his mind, then outside his mind.
Returning to looking at Desdemona he quickly turned away and excused "Oh, uh, nothing. Just... just wondering why I'm feeling so cold and chill air coming from your direction.",trying to put up a straight, innocent face as he spoke. Then he just tried to walk along and pretend nothing happened, hoping that dropping a comment on his power would let him be wary and not take any further actions, and making meaningless gestures with his hand to make him less nervous. At the same time one person went out of the dorm, Cat gave him a quick glance in his mind this time and it was lucky he did, because at that moment where they have eye contact Cat received so much distinct thoughts it almost make his head hurt. Cat gave him another look, this time more prepared, picking up thoughts a few at a time. Surprisingly, he found many, many people's mind within him, including his own and Vermilion's. Who else have suddenly developed superpowers, can I find this out with Kei's mind?

Vermilion seethed with rage, almost as if his very nerves were being affected by his new powers, the lack of inhibition almost urged him to flash freeze everything within a hundred foot radius. Fortunately he cared about having somewhere warm to stay and the dorms were the best place to sleep within a hundred miles. Clicking his tongue at the boy's reply, Vermilion walked on ahead, wondering if he could get a good sandwhich to calm his nerves.

Lix arrived on Beacon grounds, she could sense the mix of minerals in the ground, but the one she had hone in on was the sulfur that was in tiny concentrations. Lix skipped through the building, finding it a bit unnecessarily cold, even for her. Taking a look around the place was hard, even though it is not her first time here it was huge and like a maze.

Before Acero could even think of what to say to Kei, he bolted out of the dorm to go see what all the fuss was about. "Sure Kei! Let's go and defuse the situation together!" he said in a sarcastic tone.

Acero ran out of the dorm to catch up to Kei, only to bump into Vermillion, who did not look very pleased at all. Acero quickly apologized, "Uh, oops. Sorry man, wasn't watching where I was going. Acero quickly caught up to Kei to ask him what happened, "So, uh, what happened? Did you give them some words of wisdom or something?

Kei froze, feeling someone go through his mind. He didn't know how to stop it, or if it could be prevented with one of his symbols. But he wasn't happy about it, and he intended to make it known.

Having Acero appear by his side, Kei turned to respond. "Someone's looking in my head. And I don't like it." He glared straight at Catalina, preparing to draw his rapier.
