Setsuna felt like a failure.

By now the signs of self-doubt and guilt were clearly present on the normally cheerful and confident boy's face. Between the unsuccessful attempt to fend the Nevermore away from their transport, the weight of both the scientific...stuff and his own gear--he was regretting bringing his hybrid weapon long ago--and their current situation of little food and rest, the team's leader sat despondently in the shelter they had set up in, racking his mind to come up with a solution and failing to keep the voices in his head out. He had started hearing them after Calen's "joke", constantly sneering and laughing mockingly at his pathetic state, and the only way to block them out was to physically exhaust himself past his breaking point. Not that he wasn't already doing that, but it was becoming so common that even that was starting to fail.

He had suffered hardships before, but this one he was not taking well. Out of the four, Anna seemed the most optimistic--not that it was hard, none of the others seemed to even want to talk--but he didn't think she had the knowledge to fix the broken system that Teddy was currently hard at work on. Calen had disappeared somewhere, which Setsuna couldn't even bring up a emotion to describe his feelings about. The situation was not hell, but he reckoned it could be seen from here.

He buried his face in his hands, gritting his teeth as he fought to keep his mental spirit from shattering. If only the voices would just shut up...

I would personally prefer someone with a firmer touch as Ramalia will probably need some handling and I feel I'm too disruptive already with Calen. That being said if people don't mind that I have no issue, what do you think Floob?

As soon as the Grimm noises erupt out, Amane listens to them carefully, pinpointing the slightly different sound of the Alpha and aims towards it. As soon as it pops out, she near instantly flicks her line of fire directly onto its head. However, wanting to see how Coco fares against the initial wave, she holds her fire but tracks the Alpha as it runs towards them, ready to terminate it in an instant.

Is he really going to- he’s really going to. Amane thinks to herself as she watches Coco charge them while recalculating and adjusting her aim, setting up the three-round-burst just right. She fires the first bullet out which glances off the back of OTN as it almost reaches mid-swing, helping the blade along its path as the penetrator continues in a slightly altered trajectory towards the general direction of the Alpha. Before her next bullet chambered, Amane already had her line of fire on the chest of the Alpha, firing another shot, then uses her recoil to aim and immediately fire the last shot at its head.

It's OK when we get two or three other people we can run it as well.

'Yes Master Justice give us something heart pumping, something inspiring. Make us feel like gallant heroes riding atop their noble steeds doing battle against the darkness. Doomed perhaps as the darkness is never ended and they are few .... romantic right?' Calen responded grinning widely. Having already had a few hours in the saddle Calen was quickly remembering all the lessons from his childhood. And the mount was responsive enough, clearly more used to farm work but it had clearly had some training, maybe it was a show horse or eventer perhaps? Swapping between prancing and trotting as well as a normal walk Calen was clearly getting antsy. Even on foot the speedster despised keeping a slow pace but with such a power animal beneath him it was getting intolerable. 'How about I scout on ahead? It would be a pity to walk into another ambush.' Calen asked not really waiting for a response and already took off at a quick gallop.

The gaunt boy didn't want to go into the next town alone so he doubled back and spent some time scouting out the areas close to the road. Finding a fair supply of wild greens and game Calen was in a good mood as he trotted back into view with a brace of three large hares laid behind his saddle and pack filled with the bounties of the forest.

'It's a civilian facility so there are no defenses inside the lab and ther armoury consists mostly of armour plating and basic hand held weaponry. . There is a significant amount of dust to power the exterior anti-grimm weaponry as well various experiments however but extracting would be dangerous given it's safeguards. There were seven scientists on the platform as well as a five person security team, all are MiA although not all necessarily were taken prisoner. We have no information regarding the attacking forces, the material within the walls is designed to trap any radiation leaking out which disrupts our scanning technology. Specifics of the research are of course classified but in general the lab was focusing on alternate energy sources and more efficient applications of dust. No map of the facility is available, 3D or otherwise but when approaching the lab everyone would have gotten a good look at it. The majority of the lab is in small segmented rooms forming in rings around each other. Three rings in total, largest having seven rooms, middle having five and smallest having three. Each of these rooms are approximately 14 meters by 15 meters, exactly the same size as this room. The armoury is on the middle ring far from us and each room is connected by short one meter hallways.' The man in Atlas uniform responded quickly.

Amane listens to the Atlesian man’s briefing intently, taking interest in the fact they were working in a science lab. She had already planned ahead for situations like these to happen at her own workplace a long time ago, familiarizing herself with laboratory construction standards and regulations to maneuver these environments with more foresight. However, she had never been able to actually train for it until now.

“Yes, I’d like a few more details going in such as: Could we take a look at the three-dimensional laboratory module? What sort of automated defenses should we expect to be used against us? Can you give us an estimate on how many hostages there are? How about hostiles? Where do you think they are holed up? Is there an armory? If possible, I'd also like to know what is being researched here.”

Acero sighed heavily as he laid his eyes on the demolished wagons, the sight of the bodies making him tighten his grip on his weapons. "Why don't you let me scout ahead since I can tell you don't want to be near me in the first place," the cyborg said to Kei as he started to jog over to the third wagon in the line, ready to strike down any monster that might be in there.

Sounds like a simple "search and destroy" mission, Smokey thought to himself as he finished loading Matchstick and rested the gun on his shoulder.  Given the wide variety of missions being doled out here, he should consider himself lucky that there weren't more complicated instructions.  That being said, this wouldn't be easy.  The "terrorists" have already embedded themselves in preparation for ambush, and it'd be very easy for the group to fall into a trap.  Given that Smokey doesn't exactly have a "quiet mode," that goes doubly so for him.

He let out a sigh.  "Nothin' to do except deal with it, I guess," he muttered before turning to the woman before him.  "Yeah, I have two questions, although I'm pretty sure I know the answer to at least one of 'em.  Number one, is there anything else you can tell us about the prototypes' capabilities or weapons?  And number two, the way you're talking about 'no delays' makes it seem like there's a time limit.  Any chance we can get an ETA?" 

Considering how these training missions normally work, he doubted he'd get an answer to either of his questions, but he loses nothing by asking.

I'll throw in Topaz even if I'm a little late to the party -_-
