When Mikado entered the Bullhead, he could already see a young woman, who he assumed to be Siu Ceong, sitting in one of the seats. Even though this was the person he needed to work with, he was not up for a conversation and instead sat down quietly in one of the unusually many seats. Just in time to see Smokey enter the Bullhead. He still wasn’t enthusiastic about going on this mission with him, but he slowly started to give it up and accept it. Really slowly.

Quiet prevailed for a short while, until Siu decided to speak up. Mikado gave her an annoyed look. It wasn’t the fact that she was trying to start a conversation that bothered him. It was the question with which she did it. Those questions had been answered quite clearly in the mission description.
"To Monaha," he said with a roll of his eyes, "You know, stop Grimm from killing people." The sarcasm in his voice was clearly audible.

He hadn’t been in the Bullhead for five minutes and the situation already started to annoy him. What a wonderful start!
He paused for a moment, then stood up and walked to the Huntress.
"I'm Mikado, and I suppose you’re Siu Ceong, right?" he asked, hesitating for a second before reaching out his arm for a handshake.

It was a quite Saturday morning in Beacon, and a cold breeze filled the air outside the big academy. It was the perfect morning to lie in bed and recover from all the lessons and learning of the last few days. Not for Mikado Drak. The young Huntsmen-in-training left his dorm room a long time ago and has been sitting in the Academys library ever since.
A book with many drawings and texts about Grimm was opened infront of him and he flicked through the pages. The text itself was only read briefly, what he paid more attention to were the the drawings and the corresponding features added on it's side.
Just as he was about to turn over another page, his scroll vibrated. It was a text message, the transmitter was the Academy.


Dear Mikado Drak

We send you this message to inform you that you have been selected for a training mission in the mountains.

Following is the description of your mission:

A horde of Grimm is approaching the mountain village 'Monaha' at high speed. The inhabitants of Monaha have already begun their evacuation to the neighboring village, but the there prevailing storm and the uneven path to the next village slows down this process to a critical point. The goal here is to get as much time for the evacuation as possible and, if possible, eliminate the horde.

According to reports about the horde we could determine that this mission is suited for a first year student.
Despite all this, we decided not to send you alone.
Your teammate Smokey Emberstone will be accompanying you on this mission, as well as the Huntress Siu Ceong.
We kindly ask you to gather with equipment at the landing platforms outside the Academy by the time stated below. From there, a bullhead will pick you up and bring you to Monaha.

Best regards, Beacon staff.



Mikado stared at his scroll for a moment. He read the message again. Nothing changed. He couldn’t help but let out an annoyed sigh. Of all his teammates, no, of all students at Beacon, it of course had to be Smokey. He could still remember how his 'teammate' pointed his motherfucking cannon sniper at him. And no matter how much it bothered him to say that, not only did the weapon look good, but it could probably also bring a trained Huntsmen to his knees with a good targeted shot. However, this didn’t change his attitude and view towards Smokey. So, why, out of all people, did it had to be him?

He got up and closed the book. The noise of pages being slammed together made Kiro, who lay next to the book on the table, raise his head. Mikado gave the dragon a quick pet on his head and gestured him with a wave to come along, while picking up the book with his other hand. The black dragon responded immediately, jumped at his owners arm and made his way from there over the shoulder to the head, where he then made himself comfortable on the boy’s hair.

Mikado brought back the book before leaving the library to get his equipment. He would leave it to Smokey to tell the rest of the team about their little 'adventure' they’re going to have...

Hm, Siu Ceong...
He never heard that name before, but according to the message, she was supposed to be a graduate Huntress. That didn’t sound to bad. Well, nothing could sound worse that the fact that he and Smokey, alone, went on this mission. Well, not alone-alone, because Siu would be there, but alone in the sense of their team. Alone in the sense of all students at Beacon. It couldn’t get any worse...

It was not long before Mikado geared up with his weapon, dust crystals and bullets, heading for the landing platforms. The bullhead was already there, along with the associated pilot.
"Ahh, the students, excuse me, but shouldn’t there be two?"
"He'll come," Mikado replied as bored as possible. He decided not to wait for Smokey and immediately entered the open Bullhead

Kisha couldnít help but laugh amused at Jima's answer. And when Smokey got in, it was just funnier. Oh yeah, Smokey. That was his name.
"Oki doki loki, Smokes... Smokey. Got it." So, whatcha doing here?
There was no time to ask the last part, as two students had already joined the group, both of which said something about Jima's newest built weapon

It wasnít like she didn't notice the weapon, she just didnít pay that much attention to it, but now that everyone was starting to talk about it, she also looked at the sword-hoverboard hybrid. And when Jima showed them the chainsaw function, her eyes widened in excitement. She wanted one.

She clapped her hands excitedly as Jima announced to try out the weapon in the forest, and she even invited her.
"Dude, I'm definitely coming with you! No ifs and buts, you can't get rid of me now"

Kisha responded with a pleased smile to Billy's statement, and would have liked to continue talking about the cake, but it was probably better that she didn't. Especially considering the braggart factor.
"Salt is a natural flavor enhancer, you just have to watch that-" she cut off mid sentence as the door opened and another person walked into the room. And she seemed to know Leona.

"Ah, so that's your teammate?" she asked Leona before turning on tiptoes to the newcomer, "The name's Kisha, nice to meet you, as Leona already said, we're making cookies and- ah-" she cut herself off again as she looked over her shoulder at Leona to see her...Stirring. For a moment she stood there. Quiet. Ookkkay, at least it is well stirred. But still, poor batter... She personally was very sensitive when it came to wasting ingredients, or food in general, but she managed to keep the comment about it for herself.

With a barely audible sigh, Kisha turned back to the faunus. "You're welcome to help... Uhm..." She looked away, embarrassed. Leona had said the name not ten seconds ago and she had already forgotten it? She really had to work on her memory.

Lost in her thoughts, Kisha continued stepping from one leg to the other, until after only a few more minutes, Prism arrived.

"Oh, no, no," she said, unobtrusively shaking off the sleeve of her coat to get a glance at the watch, "You're even earlier than planned, but anyways, thank you so much for coming. It's great to see you"

She gave Prism a friendly smile, but shortly after raised her eyebrow a little. Only now she noticed what was weird about the hummingbird Faunus. And that's already it. The Faunus part. She was aware that, especially Atlas, was not exactly tolerant to Faunus, and even if she appreciated that Prism went through the trouble of hiding it, she really didn't had to. If the employees of the coffeehouse refuses to serve her just because she's a faunus, Kisha would personally walk to them and start a fight. Or even better. She would order something, give it to Prism and let her drink it right in front of their eyes. She could already see their dumbfounded faces. Whether it would come to something like that was another question. She didn't want to ask Prism about it, she had already made acquaintance with Faunus, who were a bit more offensive when she asked about it. If the possibility arises later, she would probably mention it though.

"How about we go in?" She asked as a cold breeze blew in her face. She quickly walked to the door and opened it with a "beauty first." Another warm smile formed on her face as she gestured Prism to walk in.

Okay, here goes nothing,

Nickname

Gamer names are not much more than nicknames. Didn't thought I had to do this, but I added it for the sake of clarification

Professional gamer not being mentioned anywhere
Well, it is now:

Quote
...This was also very important considering that she actually gained Lien by entering and winning tournaments in all kinds of games. This is also where her Gamer name, Zeiis, rose to the scoreboards. Through this, a lot of other pro gamers noticed her, challenging her, fighting her, as well as a few smaller gaming companies which asked her to try out their games. That was exactly what she wanted. A life as a pro gamer.


Her Hometown

So, I thought I had allready changed it from near stemswell to actually just stemswell, but, apparently... I did not... Well, Changed it now.

History being repeated

Literally no idea how that happend, but I fixed it.

High IQ thing

So, didnít changed that much. She's still described as smart and being able to come up with a plan, but this should still work.

Quote
She always has been smart and always will be, she got used to be called 'the one with a plan', and will most likely act like this. That by no means says that she never makes a mistake, no, she does, but she's able to hide it up with either smart words or by coming up with another quick plan.

Semblance

Okay, I wrote a bit more about the 'touch drawback'
If this is still too insufficient, I'm going to look for a new semblance.

Quote
...However, this semblance requires, as mentioned above, that Dawn has to touch the required person or object. But this isn't your ordinary 'tag you're it'-touch thing. The touch has to be at least Three seconds long for her to know her opponents Aura level. Knowing parts of their semblance takes fifteen seconds, and to know fragments of their personality can take half a minute.
A simple handshake won't always be enough though to get all the information she needs, and she can only find out parts or fragments about her opponents abilities.

and remove the "how to best use them" to simply:

Quote
For objects, she can find out the exact materials they are made of, know their function and the basics about how to use them.

Combat behavior

Changed it up in a similar way as the personality,

Quote
She's intelligent and a great strategist, having no problem to come up with a good plan. After looking at her opponents moves and patterns for a couple of turns, she can guess their ability and limits. Keyword here is guess, not know.

And her semblance makes up for the 'knowing everything after taking a bullet' part

Weapon

So, I removed the grappling hock and the skateboard laser. I keept the Skateboard though. It's juts not a weapon anymove. Only a way of transportation that she brings along to a fight. But since it doesnít do demage, it should be okay.

I would really like to keep the sword and flamethrowers, so just tell me what i need to change there and I think we should be okay... Or not, who know.

It was a nice Saturday morning in Atlas. The rising sun shone its light through the clouds and bathed the city in a pleasant light.

Kisha was standing in front of a small building with a brown winter coat and a beige scarf around her neck. The words 'Atlesian Coffeehouse' were written in capital letters on a wooden sign above the front door. The building itself let out a warm, inviting light and the smell of coffee and pastry filled the air, but Kisha decided not to go in yet.

She took a look around the street again. Some shops, many people going their way. It was actually quite similar to Vale, if it weren’t for the cold temperature and the military robots and soldiers stationed around every corner. It shouldn't surprise her, after all, Atlas was,the most advanced of them all if it comes to technology and military, and especially now that the Vytal festival was on pace, the security measures were particularly high, but with all the military, it was more of an uncomfortable rather than a secure feeling.

As she looked around, she started to step from one leg to the other to keep herself warm. Well, she couldn’t complain about it, it was her fault that she arrived almost fifteen minutes early, but now some time passed and her 'friend' should hopefully arrive soon.

Quiet and rhythmic footsteps echoed through the Academy's corridors as Kisha, humming softly to herself, made her way to Beacon's testing range. After she lost to Prism, she decided to become more diverse with her weapon and combat system. In other words, she ventured on new types of dust and modified some of her arrows with those. With the quiver on her back and Cocoa in its holster, she was ready to try out the new arrows. But before that happened, she saw two people outside the weapon workshop. While she couldn't remember ever meeting the older one, she did recall one time she saw, and also talked to the younger, and smaller one of the two. There was only one thing she couldnít remember about him. His name.

She didn't think much about it and just said the first thing that came to mind.
"Hey, Mister Grumpy, you still remember me?" She called out waving, before walking up to them.

"Thatís your girlfriend?" She asked with a laugh and then turned to the girl "Hi, I think we havenít met before. I'm Kihsa. Kisha Miles" .

"Oh, it's a schoko aller grenze" she said with a smile until she noticed her mistake. The cake was so named only in her grandparents' shop, which is why she quickly corrected herself "It's a chocolate surprise-egg cake, wait, I should have a picture" Kisha quickly searched round in her hoodie pocket under the apron until she found her scroll. It was quickly turned on and she wiped across the screen to go through the pictures in the gallery. "Uhm... hm... Ah, there it is!" She turned the scroll over and held the screen to Leona.
We'll get a new teammate soon and so I thought I would bake one for him, but we don't have to stop making the cookies, I can make the cake later."
Kisha put her scroll away again and then went to the bowl with the batter "Let's make the cookies for your team first, if anything is left I can take them for mine. The batter looks good, did you already put salt in?"

Spoiler: That’s the picture, if you wanna see it • show
This cake tastes delicious by the way

Kisha decided not to question Leona's reasons any further, but at the same time she would have liked to object. To be baked only to be burned afterwards. The poor cookies, they had such a fulfilling life before them! She looked for the last time to the sad pile of burned cookies and then gratefully accepted the apron.
"I was going to make a cake, but I have time for that later, so those are the cookies we're going to make next?" she asked, tying the apron behind her. She could see the book and especially the recipe better now and read it quickly.

Butter
Sugar
Salt
Vanilla sugar
Eggs
Flour
Baking powder
... and a few other things

"hmm..." Kisha looked up for a moment, "How many portions do we make and do you want to garnish them afterwards?" Or do we just want to burn them? The last question was purposely left out. Well, even if they only palnned on burning them, she might as well use the burned cookies for something. Only the previous ones were already too far gone as that she could use these again.

Again? Kisha thought as she watched the girl ran to the oven and saved the cookies from their fiery hell. Or rather what was left of the cookies, except for the black-baked sad-looking pastry.

Kisha still had the small grin on her face as she took the girls hand and shook it quickly up and down. "Hey there, I'm Kisha Miles, I've seen you in class a couple of times, weird that I've never talked to you before, is this your first time baking? Oh, I'm not saying it looks bad! When I baked for the first time- Okay, I've never burned anything, but that's just beginner's bad luck. Uh! Not that I was to saying that you look like a beginner! Everyone has just bad luck from time to time. Uhhhhm.... Your Name! I should have heard it before ... Uhm ... Uhh .. Lyonea?"

Only then did Kisha stop the handshaking and scratched embarrassed the back of her head. Unfortunately, forgetting the names of others was nothing new to her. She was lucky if she didn't accidentally forget the names of her teammates. When she looked away in embarrassment, she discovered an open cookie-cook-book and looked briefly over it. Standard recipe. But she decided not to say anything and waited for a response from the girl infront of her.

Well, I wanted to discuss this after the other two agreed with the new team composition, but I doubt that they will have anything agains you joining the team.

Since our B is missing and Kin unfortunately has no B in the name, we will probably have to look for a new one. After looking around a bit, those are the ones that came up,

SMKE (Smoke)
MKNI (Mahogany)
INKK (Ink)

But as I already said I wanted to wait for the other two before we go too much into planning

Humming softly, Kisha walked through the halls of the Academy until a sweetish smell rose in her nose and stopped her for a second. It didn't really surprise her, there were a few students who wanted to use the kitchen every now and then for their own satisfaction, even though it was usually her standing in the room and baking.

Since Kisha was on her way to the kitchen anyway, she could as well see who was baking and maybe make a friend along the way.
As she, still humming, approaching the kitchen, the sweetish smell turned a little ... dull.
With a "haaaaallllloo-" she opened the door carefully, but then interrupted herself as she saw the cloud of smoke forming above the oven. The cloud was still small .... Still...
"I think something's burning" She said slightly giggling and waved first at the blond-haired classmate, and than pointed to the oven.
