Chains slowly choking out the two white fang members in front of her, the other two snuck out and held them still, a mixture of trying to keep them quiet to prevent the others hearing and to narrow her eyes at the goings-on of the video feeds from Juno and Rory. Tuning into the sound, she laid the two knocked-out faunus onto the ground, holding her breath at the exchange before jumping slightly herself at the sudden burst of movement from 'Caja'. Her hands balled into fists as the turncoat kept talking, and she reached to start going through her suitcase and the items within before seeing the grenade and the reaction from her two teammates.

'Fuck.' she eloquently said in her head, grabbing the suitcase back up and quickly wrapping the chains back around her limbs again. She cast one look over towards the two knocked-out fang members, took a second to grab their scrolls and power them off (didn't want them to get tracked, after all) and then made to flee from the bomb-to-be warehouse, leaving the two there.

Sam gave a light mental tsking at Verdant's exit. He was the one who was meant to be good at this whole kind of sneaky stuff and he's the one who already got seen. Well, at least he was dragging away some manpower - it would make it a bit easier to sneak about that way for herself, though 'sneaking' wasn't quite the right term - more like hiding in plain sight, really. 'Gesa', though - a name for someone in a position of power there. If they're the ones handing out punishment, probably either an officer or the leader of whatever operation this would be called.

The progression of Juno's own situation at the corner of her eye left Sam slightly anxious; she really needed to start getting set up. If they weren't going to have to follow them back - with Caja herself already here, no long term following on the airship back or anything meant that the fight was probably going to take place here. In that case, whatever weapon the grunt was using 'getting a bead' on her teammate probably wasn't a good thing.

Fuck's sake, Verdant.

Using the noises to try and map the two White Fang members' positions, she made her way close as she dared without risking them taking any particular interest in her. Starting to channel her semblance into two of the chains wrapped around her legs, Sam muffled her footsteps and her suitcase as she made her way closer to the grunts, leaning against a wall out of sight from what position she could tell they were facing, and then made her move.

Two chains shot outward, their noise silenced by the buildup of her semblance, and tried to wrap around both of the grunts' mouths - or at least near enough for her semblance to quiet them both. Whatever weapons she could see as she turned around the corner would be next - The chains would hopefully be close enough to silence the weapons if any shots rang out, but she'd still rather not get shot. Hoping it worked, she made to slam the two members' heads into each other and knock them out.

Sam gave a blink at the lack of airship - she would've thought it'd be somewhat difficult to hide a continental-capable travel vehicle - and then kept moving on. She trusted Verdant enough to get what he needed to do done; and the plan wasn't to ambush them here, anyways. Caja was the main objective, and while one person being disturbed was just happenchance, two people being disturbed one after could be called a coincidence.

Coincidences didn't happen in their line of work, on either side of the coin.

However, one thing she could do was eavesdrop. Moving towards where she would be able to hear the most absent chatter - some of those guards posted together must be getting a little antsy, after all - she tried to gather a bit of information on the situation, keeping one eye on the camera feed behind the bandage of her covered-up eye.

Sam had separated from the group fairly early on; she'd been away when they were all getting off the airship, getting changed in a local toilet. Not the most glamorous of locations to do so, and not exactly the most glamorous clothes she was getting in to - but certainly a brighter getup. The normally darker jeans were replaced by a pair of slightly ripped denim ones, and a white shirt-skirt combo was over that, along with a roughed-up blue beige jacket. The setup definitely didn't scream 'trendy', but what it was - for her - was perfect for hiding herself in plain sight. Chains wrapped around her legs for once to hide them, rather than her arms, she looked completely different to her normal getup in several ways; the slightly less depressing colour scheme, the slightly more ridiculous set of cheap sunglasses, the fact some pale skin was actually showing for once, and the suitcase by her side.

Oh, and the whole 'actually looked like a girl' thing. That too.

Much as it alternately grated on and amused her that her team seemed somewhat blind to her gender, despite the fairly obvious evidence - she had short hair, but come on, that wasn't exactly rare - the farce she'd kept up out of curiosity proved useful now. If even her team wasn't exactly sure what she looked like when in a- she took a moment to look down at the clothes with distaste smudged onto her expression- then their enemies certainly wouldn't. Hell, she doubted her parents would recognise her at first glance like this. All in all, she'd done her best to look local - more importantly, looking like she was trying to get out of the place. The tattered clothes and off-brand names would hopefully help with that, and the fairly ramshackle looking suitcase would just add to the view, along with containing the rest of her gear. A tourist would have a mini one; the decent size hopefully showed she was trying to make a move somewhere. Perfect excuse for being around some airships. She took a small comfort in replacing her headphones, far too modern-looking to fit in at all, with a pair of earbuds - it's the little things that count.

Feeling the echoes merge and bounce around her, she hummed quietly to herself as she walked through a not quite back alley but not quite main road of the slums, keeping to herself much as she could, scroll feed hotwired to her eyepatch-covered eye - less obvious than the usual bandages, but something she couldn't completely hide in the end - and tried to make her way towards the location from Juno's scroll, but also trying to keep a lookout for any possible White Fang grunts around the place. The key was the whole 'airship' thing - it was probably a fair journey off, or at least enough to warrant the security of a larger craft. As such, one thing they likely needed was supplies, and a light application of her semblance coupled with a handful of headache pills left her trying to listen in to anything sounding like gathering fair amounts of food or water.

Character Editing / Re: Samantha Quartz

Profile updated, changes nearly all around but some of it just rewording.

Edit: Changes for each section:

Appearance: Barring the obvious, minor changes to account for switch in character gender.

History: Essentially the same story, but reworded and more detail added: details about early graduation but being held back included, as well as time so far in VCVS.

Personality: Generally expanded on and reworded.

Semblance: Similar theme, slight differences; kept the sensory component, powered down the sudden/immediate physical shockwaves, elaborated on the 'building up' part of it to give more clear weaknesses and work better with the character as a whole.

Combat behavior: Rewording to accompany new weapon and changes in semblance.

Weapons: Ashen Howl renamed to... unnamed, and the weird backpack cannon thing removed from it, just the chains left. Prismatic Performance the same with rewording. New weapon created in-story added and liked the old name so named it Ashen Howl instead.

Samuel lent against the wall near the front door, just listening to the others for a while, then starting to try to blank them out as he put two fingers to circle on his forehead while shutting his eyes, mumbling quietly. With a couple of the comments back and forth, he seems to get more agitated, before just dumping his bags to the floor.

"Why the hell are we just... talking about things we could be doing and not describing what those entail, or, you know, doing them?"He questioned, a slight snarl reaching his tone at the end of the sentence as he strided over to the nearby pin-up board before wiping a chain harshly across it, knocking off all the current things on it in a clutter of pins and torn paper. Grabbing a pen and some of the now-ruined notices, he started talking while writing down.

"Look, first thing's first; there's an obvious bloody way to find out where Caja is; it's likely the exact same place they plan to take Juno. They're not going to just take the suit and go 'oh this seems fine', they'll take him along until they can confirm something." He stated sarcastically, before shaking his head and continuing. "Therefore, the most obvious way is by getting Juno on there. Of course, that plan by itself is shit." Samuel was almost starting to talk to himself at this point, scrabbling some particularly bad drawings onto a canvas of post-it notes and torn paper. "Getting us all along in the shittiest way is also simple; it's not exactly the hardest thing in the world to disguise yourself as a White Fang grunt, especially if you just take their scrolls or whatever they're using and find out what they were up to anyways. And Rory could be Juno's plus one to make sure he doesn't get stabbed. Well, that's the reasoning that you could use to bargain for it, though knowing your actions you'll end up getting stabbed somewhere before this is all over anyways."

Despite having referred to the entirety of the rest of his team, he continued to just talk to himself, blanking out the room as he changed to mumbling under his breath, drawing out what amounted to stick figure warfare. Or, well, MSPaint subterfuge in this case. "And that's just the stupid way of handling it, like there's just so many damn things to be doing to make a far better one- why the hell are we just waiting for a White Fang stripper to pop out the metaphorical birthday cake and reveal their plans?" He stated, taking a break from his writing to look around at the rest of them, breathing heavily from the constant talking. He didn't seem done with the whole plans thing if half the board still uncovered was anything to note for, however.

Samuel's bike came to a halt outside of Juno's flat, a familiar dull glow coming from the ever-covered eye as he glanced around the destruction, taking it in slowly. Turning the bike's engine off, he strapped the two blades of Prismatic Performance to his sides, the backpack and an oddly sticking out box-shaped object on his back as he shifted off the seat and just stood there for a second, taking it in. The chains normally wrapped around his wrists were trailing behind him instead, slowly swaying from side to side almost unconsciously as he slowly took a step, paused again, then made his way up to the already open front door.

Pushing it wide again to let himself in, he didn't walk any further into the room, leaning against the door frame with his free shoulder. "Sorry I'm late. Had to pick up some stuff." He stated simply, his tone of voice somewhat hard to read but his expression neutral as he looked around the inside of the tattered room. "So when are we going?" It didn't even seem to have occurred to him to wait about at all, or what they were going to do, considering he was dressed in his combat uniform and his weapon was with him, along with whatever else was on his back.

There was a firm crunch as Brook's fist jammed straight through one bit the armour didn't cover; it's neck. It wouldn't have been able to move its head, otherwise, and these were still just beowolves. The beast let out a light whining sound, choking out before going limp, dissipating. The other alpha was knocked back harshly by Juno, being hit further by the twin blades, and fell into a heap for a second before shakily getting to its feet. It stared hatefully at the duo for a moment, before noticing the approaching Reyva and Michael along with the loss of its co-alpha, letting out a pained-sounding howl to the pack before attempting to half-limp half-run out of the clearing.

The rest of the beowolves stood stock still for a second, a few quickly being cut down by the hunters or shot by some of the soldiers, before following quickly after the alpha, exiting the clearing in a flurry of action before leaving it stock-still, the last gunshots ringing before falling silent again.

"...well, that was a bit of a fucking mess." Willow eloquently commented.

Yawning lightly, Samuel then winced as the action brought the welding tool out of place, scoring an unsteady line against the small device in front of him. Damn. He'd have to redo the casing for that component, then. Taking the tiredness as a sign, he put the welder down and then flipped up his mask, flopping down to the metal chair beneath him. He'd taken the opportunity today to get some time to himself, head down to the small armoury there and tinker around for a bit. Admittedly, it was far less high-tech than that of Beacon's own, where he usually roamed, but- well, it was a hell of a lot more quiet, for one thing. The other thing was a better excuse for not being at team meetings or the like; 'I'm busy down at work' generally worked better than 'I'm messing about with volatile equipment'. Speaking of...

Turning the spike-shaped object over, he gently moved it over to the redo-pile; or, well, more of a re-do set. The other six he'd messed about with turned out alright, he mused, as the faunus looked over at the pointed chain-links, thinking for a second before taking out a carrier case and putting them into the safety foam he used to store the more dangerous tests he used. Zipping the backpack-made-explo- he meant perfectly safe experimental carrier-bag- he took the mask off his face, briefly letting his fox ears stretch out and feel the air for a few moments before flattening them back against his hair.

Grabbing his jacket off a hook and returning the apron to it, Samuel blinked as a high-pitched ding rang for a second, before looking down at said hoodie pocket and taking out his scroll. Setting the tone of the scroll's pings to above normal human hearing hurt his ears a little, but he was trying to get used to it; could be useful in combat applications. Maybe. He wasn't just being sneaky about checking game updates in class or anything, that'd just be rude. Opening up the message, Samuel hummed lightly as it loaded, waiting for one of the usual vaguely snarky messages about him being late or something, as he lent against the wall next to the window of the little room.

There was a vaguely awkward, blank silence as the video played, putting his headphones in after the first few lines to stop it playing out loud, then the usual click as the video ended. The silence dragged on a few moments, only a slight but growing ringing noise starting to break it before a series of small cracks hit the window, the noise breaking Samuel out of his staring at the black screen of the scroll before taking a deep breath, the ringing noise stopping as he got his semblence under control.

The man typed out a simply reply of 'On my way' before pocketing the scroll. Reaching into his jacket again, he brought out some cash, putting it on the counter as he walked out. "Kid, told you you don't need to pay me for that anymore, you work f-" The storekeeper started, but the hunter-in-training just walked out, leaving the repair money and grabbing his motorcycle helmet off his parked vehicle, turning the key before starting off towards Juno's flat.

Samuel felt the chains opening up, narrowing his eyes slightly as his teammate-to-be moved quickly backwards. Feeling the chains pushed slightly to the side, he started to make a move, but the sudden blink in front of him caught him slightly off guard and the kick hit, making him stumble back slightly.

The followup slash was blocked by one of his own blade that he moved up with the backwards momentum, holding the other up against the flurry of blows, his hands now moving to more firmly grasp the handles of the weapons themselves, while the chains used the shaping granted to start circling around behind her in an arcing motion as a solid bundle.

'She's vaguely similar to Caja's old style, if a little more direct sometimes. Might be best to test the limits of her semblence before I show too many of my own cards, see if I can get a pattern here.' He mused, pushing the flat of the sword forwards towards her to try and shove her into the oncoming chains.

The faunus shrugged at her question, keeping the swords spinning up as she looked around in confusion. More time to prepare for him. Her face went through several puzzled expressions, and he just levelled a lazy look over, waiting for them to make a move.

Seeing the teammate-to-be practically blur forward - 'fast' - he aimed the swinging swords towards each of the oncoming blows, a shriek sounding out from the energy around them as they approached to answer each of her blows with the shockwaves ready to release in each on impact. The chains connected to his back quickly slided forwards and around her to try and block off her exit. Samuel himself hadn't moved his body, still staring at her with the vaguely eerie glow as he watched her reaction.

Samuel didn't make any real movements towards starting the fight, just continuing the odd swaying from side-to-side, the chains unwrapping from his arms and rising behind him as he did so to the beat of the music in his ears. A low pitched whining sound started as he started spinning each sword on the end of the connecting chain, a faint shimmer starting the cover the edge of the blades as he built up his semblence around them. He was perfectly happy to wait here for her to make the first move; gave him time to charge up, and he was always more of a reactive fighter anyways. Liked to get some more information firsthand before really going at it.

"Eh. Happy to stand about a bit, y'know? Weather's good, all that stuff." The faunus stated in a somewhat bland tone of voice, a faint blue glow behind his covered eye once again as he waited for her to act.

The sudden movement left the two beowolves trying to move away from the flurry of motion, trying to cover one another. As the staff strike came in from one side, the beast ducked down, attempting to move out the way, but still taking a glancing blow that raked into the tough bone, getting somewhat jammed into it. However, it doesn't manage to dodge the following slam from the giant glowing hand, being pushed into the ground with a yowl. Its partner growls, trying to take advantage of the two temporarily motionless hunters, leaping over the other alpha and trying to bite down onto Juno's shoulder, then barrel into Brook.


The constant flames keep the beowolves away from Michael, forming a natural barrier against them. If natural counted as shredded and ignited fire dust lining the ground like napalm, burning any of them that tried to push their luck away. Reyva's more aggressive movements quickly dispatch the nearby Grimm, but they keep trying to move together and back, trying to block their passage to the Alphas, growling and waiting till the hunters moved before making any response.

He practically glared at Juno at his amused statement, but gave a small nod. "Yes. Even the special stuff. Caja took it all. That costs a month's worth of fees from helping out at the Dust store." Unlike Juno, he did not look amused at all. He glanced over at the talkative AI, but copied Juno and blanked it out, waiting for the others to get there.

Samuel similarly ignored the others as they entered, mumbling quietly to himself as he fidgeted with something on his scroll. He twitched slightly at Juno's first sentence, lowering said device to look over at their team leader. He shrugged at the comment pointed at him, going back to the scroll, then having to put it down with a noise of exasperation as he was called up.

Pushing himself to his feet, Ashen Howl still attached as a bump on his back over the back-ripped hoodie, he stumbled slightly as he walked down the stairs, moving over to the arena with a lazy gait. He picked up Staccato and Encore as he went, the chain-linked blades giving a light ringing noise as he span them round, holding them by the chain just below the handle, waiting for Cerise to follow over. He may as well let off some steam. Staring at Juno for a moment, remembering the comment he made, the faunus gritted sharp teeth together, before releasing a breath. He wanted to see something more serious? Fine.

He started swaying from side to side gently, briefly moving to flick on the music again. He could do serious. Didn't like doing serious, didn't think it was exactly what Juno wanted, but focusing just hard enough to overlay the image of Caja onto Cerise?

Well. He could manage it, this time.

The immediate foes around Revya were shot down, and the others chose wisely to back off further, retreating towards the pack leaders in a group, trying to cut off the two from getting to their allies. A few stray wolves tried to move in closer, taking their chances against the two hunters despite how many of their kind they had just taken down in an effort to hold them off.


The rather loud booming sound coupled with the previous fire left the two smarter Grimm aware of where the two had quickly gone two; and neither were they quite stupid enough to take the immediate attacks to the face. Breaking apart from each other a small distance, avoiding the powerful but straight-lined attack of Juno that left a crater where it hit, they both moved back in an effort to avoid the rubble. Brook had slightly more luck: the greater range of her weapon clipped one of the two, leaving a large cut across the beast's hide. Yowling in annoyance and pain, they moved back together, now slightly more distinguishable by the ghastly red mark on the side of one. They seemed to be reassessing their opponents carefully.
