Lyra was holding her dagger our against an encroaching and menacing thug when all of a sudden, she felt a powerful force compelling her to drop her knees.  From experience, she knew this was Airi's semblance.  Trying to move her head so that she could look at Airi, Lyra her in a bit posture of intense concentration.  Not at all trying to resist the force, Lyra simply let herself lay flat on the ground.  However, as Airi had instructed her to get ready before using her semblance, Lyra understand what was going on and closed her eyes.  Focusing on her own semblance, she could feel the  wisps of free aura radiating outwards from Airi as she expended her aura to power her semblance.  Similarly, Lyra could feel also feel the wisps of aura being expelled and cast free from the grunts that, not understanding what was happening, tried to best to resist Airi's semblance, thus expending their own aura in their struggles.  Without any movement and in the depths of concentration, Lyra felt herself reaching out and grabbing these streams of free aura, bringing them back to her, and a sense of both comforting familiarity and empowerment welled up inside Lyra.

Before long, Lyra felt the force keeping her flat on the ground ease up before disappearing completely.  With that, she got up off the ground and faced the group of grunts.  With a quiet, but forceful voice, she said to Sovereign, "take care of her," referring to Airi, who seemed utterly exhausted by the use of her semblance.  Lyra now physically reached out with both hands towards the aura streams that she now perceived, and an eerie purple glow surrounded her hands.  Having brought the free aura under her control, she focused them into shape, and a quintet of basketball-sized purple spheres manifested, orbiting around Lyra.  With a domineering look in her eye, she gazed over the field of brutes and thugs and thought to herself of the limitless ways she could play with the new toys present before her.  A barely perceptible smile crept across her face.

With the approach of the grunts, Lyra stepped behind Airi, hiding behind her teammate.  However, as Airi stepped forward to engage the gangsters, one took the opportunity to focus on Lyra.  Slowly backing, Lyra hastily withdraw a dagger from her outfit at her assailant and timidly brandished it at him.  "Don't come any closer.  Stay back!" she warned him, though her voice lacked confidence, and her defensive display was overall quite unconvincing.

Lyra was more or less under house arrest throughout her childhood.  Apart from reading, playing with toys, and practicing musical instruments, she had to learn to entertain herself within her own mind.  Her parents had her semblance unlocked, since having an active semblance, even if not being proficient with it, was the the thing to do for her family.  At first, Lyra's semblance didn't quite manifest itself, but that's because she didn't realize that in addition to using her own aura, she had to draw aura from another source in order to use her semblance.  When one of her family's servants watching over her injured herself, Lyra instinctively felt the aura available to her, if only she would reach out and take it, so to speak.  Ever since then, Lyra spent the majority of her time practicing how to use to use her semblance, at rare times even tormenting her maids, forcing them to provide secondary sources of aura for her semblance to manipulate.

"Tits or GTFO" - Ben Dover (not my character, but it belongs here)

Airi regained her balance after being pulled by the Ursa shortly before its demise.  Straightening out her outfit, she looked towards the deactivating Knights in response to the exclamations by the other students.  "Hmm, that's strange indeed.  But forget about it for now, let's secure the area quickly and move on."  With that, she brandished her blade and swung at several small Grimm that were harassing the deactivating Knights.

Airi watched the fighting going on, though her attention was primarily focused on the Ursa, with it being the largest, most obvious threat.  Seeing Topaz target the Ursa, she decided she would assist, disregarding Topaz's claim of having already called the Ursa.  It was an Ursa, after all - not something to be trifle with.  Since Topaz was targeting one of the Ursa's legs, Airi targeted the other.  She got into a running start, charging at the Ursa before sliding beneath it between its legs.  Right before she did so, however, she used her semblance to release a time fragment.  Then, as she did slid between its legs, Airi released Timeweaver's spool and clasp mechanism, throwing the ultra-thin wire so that it caught around the other Ursa leg.  She pulled hard so that it, combined with Topaz's assault on its other leg, would cause the Grimm beast to fall under its weight.

Jostled into alertness, Airi opened her eyes and immediately stood to her feet.  Following the other students, she climbed the train ladder.  The large Ursa Major was the first to catch her attention, for obvious reasons, but she couldn't help but notice the Beowolves attacking the Dust car.  "We need to protect the Dust car from sustaining too much damage," she shouted over the commotion, Grimm roars, and howling of the wind.  "If the Grimm critically damage it, the Dust might explode and take the train with it."  Looking back at the Ursa major, which was much too big to ignore, she suggested, "We might be able to have three of us on the Ursa Major and peel off one to protect the Dust carriage."

Growing up, Airi had rather severe motion sickness.  It didn't matter the vehicle - car, ship, train, or airplane - she had difficulty avoiding the dizziness and nausea that so often accompanied such trips.  As a result, Airi's eyes were closed.  While Airi had outgrown most manners of motion sickness, except for the kind that came with travel by boat, she still kept her eyes closed and put herself into a sort of half-sleep - a holdover from when she was still affected by motion sickness.  When Taylor introduced herself to the group, Airi, still eyes closed, responded, "My name is Airi, also a third year."

Lyra was the last to reach the building, and thanks to her rather weak constitution, she was all out out of breath.  Standing just outside the threshold of the door that Sovereign had kicked in, she watched the boy and Airi get to work against the occupants.  At least at the onset, she didn't notice anything particularly threatening about the people inside, so she wondered if Sovereign's intel was correct, significantly doubting him.  Either way, Lyra wasn't in a position to contribute anything, so she kept minimal attention to herself, waiting for aura to be spent so that she could harvest is for her own attacks.

Lyra still didn't know what to think of this strange man, and she wasn't sure if they should follow him when he asked them to go along with him.  Nonetheless, Lyra saw that Airi seemed quite comfortable with him, or at least sufficiently so.  As a result, Lyra elected to trust Airi and follow along.

Airi looked at the massive Grimm that had suddenly appeared before the group.  It was not something that she had ever seen before, and honestly, she was quite amazed by its strange form.  However, Airi's attention was brought back to her immediate surroundings when she saw Fallow run out past the creep to get at the new Grimm directly.  "Wait, come back!" she called out to him, but it seemed that he was already gone too far out into the throng of Creeps.  To the remainder, she said "Alright, we'll need to clear out these Creep.  I want to pull back to evaluate a better plan of attack, but since Fallow has already run out there, we need to consolidate and bring him back.  What are your thoughts?"
