It would have been profitable for Justice to walk away at this point. He had what he was looking for, and he did not have to do anything else. Just a trip to a dilapidated bar and about an hour of travel time spent to get a plethora of information. But, he knew he was never going to walk away from this. Selective breeding, treason, and torture are not things that you learn in the classroom. You will never find the course at Beacon. If he wanted to get any information on the operations and techniques of groups like these, he was going to have to see it for himself. Field research, if you will.

"I believe I may be of...some assistance. I have to say, attempting to overthrow a kingdom monetarily takes a substantial amount of ambition and influence." Justice said, ignoring the slight on his homeland for the time being.

Teddy tucked the light into his back pocket. One of the perks of being a faunus is that you generally have no need for them. Still, it would have been better for Calen to be able to see more adequately rather than being so damn smug about having his own light. Either way, they managed to make it to what seemed like the end of the tunnel quietly. The sound of combat tended to drown out most of the noise that they made anyway.

As much as it would have been nice to be able to get the door open quietly, there was no chance that they were going to get through both the door and the chain unnoticed. Grabbing the flashlight out of his pocket, Teddy pointed it up at his own face. Looking at Calen, he mouthed the words "Get back." and grabbed his weapon, taking aim at the door.

Rust followed Solar and Cordell aboard similarly awestruck but demonstrating more composure than them. Pacing around and slowly turning as he took in the details of what he was seeing and submitting to just being in awe for a time. That was until the ropes started pulsing light. At which point a metallic screeching rang out as Onyx Ripper was revved hard and raised in a defensive stance before being promptly lowered and idling as it became apparent there was no threat. At Cordell's reaction Rust turned to her. An unseen eyebrow raised skeptically. "What? You think my aura is somehow similar enough to this Grimshaw guy that the ship thinks I'm him, or one of his relatives? Also how exactly do you plan to use it? We're in a sealed cave." Despite his voiced doubts Rust's voice made it very apparent he was just as excited as the two pirates and looking forward to Cordell's response.

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.

Character Creation / Kozmo Royale
« Last post by Trick_Star on January 17, 2018, 09:59:26 AM »
CHARACTER
Name: Kozmo Royale

Age: 18 born 12 Machlud

Species and Gender: Human Male

Symbol:  A preying owl with stars in its eyes

Occupation: Hunter in training, Beacon Year 1

Appearance: Kozmo stands at 6'2" with a large, imposing frame of mostly muscle. His long, kinky hair is worn tied back most of the time. His eyes are a dark violet and they always look a bit tired from lack of sleep. He has dark brown skin. His normal clothes consist of a skintight, padded, black bodysuit worn under a thick, olive-green military style jacket with his symbol on the back and dark beige cargo pants with black steel toed boots.

History: Kozmo was born in Atlas where he had a sheltered childhood with his mother until the age of 11, when his father saw fit to expand his horizons by taking him onto his freighter for the Schnee Dust Company. Though initially reluctant, it is through his experiences on the ship that he learned the importance of hard work as well as how to fend for himself through training from his father, watching hired hunters, and through occasional pirate attacks. He also learned skills like cooking, navigation by stars, and how to smuggle effectively.

By the time he was 14, Kozmo had developed a love for travel and adventure, even sneaking away from his mother for days at a time to explore. Seeing that nothing could stop him from chasing adventure, his parents decided to send him to Signal, where he could learn to defend himself against Grimm, but more importantly to make some friends his own age. He took well to combat training, having a naturally high tolerance for pain, although his slower speed and large size held him back quite a bit before unlocking his semblance. Though Signal taught him combat and survival skills, socially, Kozmo found it difficult to relate to most students.

Having finished combat school and forging his weapon, Sailing no More, He entered Beacon Academy ready for the next adventure.

 
Personality: Kozmo, though he may initially come off quite rough and introverted , he is a very friendly and caring person once engaged socially. He has a desperate need to be active constantly, be it combat or conversation or else he starts to get into his own head and falls into a minor depression. For Kozmo, combat is fun because he loves the thrill and because it gives him an outlet for his nervous energy. He has something of a low self-esteem, often expressed through his humor, but gets very defensive of those that he is close with. Kozmo takes pleasure in spending time with his friends, cooking, and training, but his favorite activity is quiet stargazing, alone with his thoughts.


Aura and Semblance: Kozmo's aura appears as a violet glow and his semblance involves stealing kinetic energy from his surroundings and then transferring that energy to other things. Targets with aura can only have a fraction of their speed stolen, relative to how much they have remaining while targets with no aura protection can be slowed to a crawl.  In order to activate his semblance, he has to have eye contact with his target and his semblance must cover the area that he is targeting. The time it takes for it to engulf an area is relative to his distance from it and how big it is, meaning that the smaller and closer something is, the easier and quicker it will be affected. If he breaks eye contact with his target, the effect is ended. In combat this semblance is used to slow down faster enemies and bullets drastically as well as speed himself and his weapons up. This semblance is more useful the faster the target being stolen from is, and the speed buff on its own will never make something faster than what was being stolen from. Living things under the effects of his semblance experience slowed perception of time as well.

Combat Behavior:  Kozmo excels in one on one combat. Without his semblance, his movements are slower, but they pack a punch, so he'll often bait opponents into rushing him, then blitz them with their own speed while they are off guard. His weapons are suited to close to mid range combat, though when transformed, offers him some limited long range offense. Because his semblance requires that his focus be on a singular target, he has to rely on his team to cover his back more and more as the number of opponents increases.

WEAPON

Name: Sailing no More

Primary Form: Black tonfa with violet trimming. The handles twist and slide across each tonfa for added maneuverability and to allow them to be held like pistols for firing bullets. Each tonfa has a slot for dust. Tips are weighted for crushing attacks.

Secondary Form: Connecting the tonfa together by the ends converts them into a sniper rifle with two dust slots.

Dust Functions: In tonfa mode, dust can be applied to each tonfa to add elemental damage to bullets and the tonfa themselves. In rifle mode, bullets can combine the effects of two types of dust.

History: Sailing no More was forged at Signal. It was made primarily to be able to block attacks easily. It's name references what Kozmo believes to be the best time of his life.

"Woah coool!" Solar was awestruck at the sight of the legendary ship. Not so much as Cordell herself who understood its historical significance, but still enough for the twinkle in her eyes to shine bright with anticipation.
Upon climbing aboard the ship, like a child in a candy store Solar took it upon herself to explore and touch just about any part of the ship she came across. "Soo how does this ship work? Is it like the captain's ship powered by dust? Its got sails so is it powered by wind? Ooh these cannons are so cool!" playing about Solar pretended to fire off one of the Beowolf shaped cannons. "Arr fire the cannons! Hehe" She commanded in a her pirate voice at no one in particular. Facing the middle of the ship something else caught her interest as she went bouncing towards the ship's main wheel.

 But it happend before she could reach it. The faint blue light that snaked all over the ship, like roots of a tree that spread everywhere the light enveloped the vessel and centered at the wheel Solar was headed for."What is this?"


Closing her eyes once again, she pulsed her Semblance for a moment and concentrated. "So th' ship's Floatstone is still imprinted on ol' Grimshaw, it seems -- not just anybody can use it. But it is responding t' somebody here, somehow. Could be yer Aura's just similar enough... or might be somethin' more." After another moment her eyes snapped open, blinking in surprise. "Blow me down an' call me a bilge rat... two of ye! Rust, Solar, th' ship's Floatstone be reactin' to yer Auras! And not just that. The strongest concentration o' Dust I've ever sensed is in th' ship's hold -- it's gotta be th' Sorcerer's Crown. I think... I think we can use th' ship t' haul it and all the treasure we can find outta this hole."

"What does that mean cap'n? What's the Sorcerer's Crown? What's our aura doing?" Cordell's words didn't sink into Solar, she had to understand better what her role in all this was.

As Wisteria fell she saw the approaching packs of beowolves and quickly came up with a plan. Flipping in mid-air to get a better casting position, feet below her and body angled ever so slightly forwards, she started channeling the dust from her gloves to her hands, invoking an attack powerful enough to give her the effect she needed. Not too far from the ground now but still high enough to get some decent air, Wisteria launched a small cluster of fireballs at the grimm from up high and a massive gust of wind to slow her descent. Landing rather roughly, she ended up in a roll before blasting herself to her feet with a gust of wind. Immediately after, she drew her blade and started preparing some more dust if the approaching grimm continued their approach.

Spotting Lilla not too far ahead she started walking towards her with her weapon drawn, keeping her eyes and ears piqued for signs of increased activity.

Well welcome to the site, it's a very good first attempt and probably wont have much trouble getting through the approval process. I do have a few issues with the semblance, although it does all tie into general theme but it still seems like too much for a first year. At this stage I would recommend cutting the augmenting allies thing as well as making leaching from people with auras much less efficient than unprotected people.

But yea other than that you've done very well. Good job.
