This one is not going to be easy to get out of. If she won't allow some distance, then just move the other way and get closer: the closer they are the more each bit of movement is worth. There's another thing he wishes to address with closing in, which is made obvious by the fact that he is wrapping her wires on her hands.

She asked an important question, Cat has almost forgotten about that. What did he fight for? He fought for equality, that people to be treated similarly and viewed only by their accomplishments and not by anything else, most relevantly not by race, sex or age. And if we're being witty, that includes fighting style as well. Or not, since fighting style has a great impact on your build and the proficiency of different attributes that are all important when determining the skills of a huntsman(-in-training). Point is, it doesn't make a world of difference to him whether she respected him with what he had shown. He'll just get to him, and then his more private reason will start to matter. He doesn't plan on telling that to Ayaka though. And he would've loved to tell her all about equality but for now, "I'll answer once I dodge that charged hit of yours."

Siu wore her trademark robes, the one made of silk and that have big long sleeves, making her look just like a mage out of a children's fantasy book. It is also quite comfortable, with little airholes allowing it to 'breathe' which is consistent with the advertisements, perhaps surprisingly. There's only one problem: it is kind of very noticeable.

She did bring her other set of clothes, and those would have been just fine for blending in, and she had no qualms just changing into it on spot, but it is thicker and thus hotter and she figures this wouldn't be a short mission despite being on a clock, so conserving stamina is important.

The summation made by her teammate is not entirely accurate, but she's sure Sam will correct him on that. Instead, Siu plays her usual role of scouting ahead. "Should I send a dragon ahead to check that out?" She asked pointing at the pillars of smoke.

Yeah, figured it wouldn't be that easy. It's ok though, she lost the tip of her wires and her close-up.  Unfortunately, the wires at the sides are still connecting the two of them and prevent him from simply disengaging. Well then, just go the other direction and push for the attack. But Cat would definitely be outmatched by his specialized opponent, so he has to have a plan. He has one.

After dismissing his blanket he took his weapon back out, transformed it to hammer form, then filled it with his ice dust, of course done behind his back. Seeing what could only be a charge in progress, he retreated to the maximum distance the wire allows and focusing to dodge.

Umm, I guess Siu can use a thread. I'll sign her up.

She didn't fall for it. Not bad. Not that Catalina can't get her now, she is still very much in range of Catalina's wires. Then Ayaka jumped, and the silvery tip of the metal wires was stopped in their tracks by a blanket that Cat prepared to trap Ayaka in, one meter long by one meter wide but only 0.025 centimeters thick. The front ones, anyway, and he had to let the ones flung from his sides capture him in the waist. Ignoring that and just running forward, he ran as fast as he can to where she is going to land.
(Snare attempt granted by Xar.)
It turns out she boosted specifically to get ahead of him and she managed to land right outside his reach. However, it doesn't stop him from trying to cover her in the blanket that he had already conjured, electricity still coursing through it. On the other, free hand, Cat took a hold of the wires that were stopped by the blanket.

It is clear that Ayaka fits her place of the quarterfinalist well, she presses like a juggernaut, dodges like the floating leaf and moves with all the spontaneity of a loaded spring. But with the sheer amount of versatility behind him, he is going to make her stay at just that, a quarterfinalist.

Changed reserve to 5000 cubic meters and changed regeneration to when he had a 2 hours or longer rest.

Added themes.
Retconned Aura color for visibility.
Semblance overhauled:
He didn't actually name his Semblance, but people around gave it the nickname 'Aurashift' and he picked it up. The semblance is an extension of his Aura that manifests exclusively as up to two long wires, one in each hand of Catalina. They originate from his palm and is as flexible as real steel cables.

The length and thickness of the wires work on a volume reserve. He has exactly 1000 cubic centimeters of it at any time, formed into at most two wires of arbitrary thickness as he sees fit, but they have to be Prisms when completely straight. That means technically blanket-like objects is not out of the question. He regenerates 10 cubic centimeters of the wires per second and consumes one-tenth of the volume he his currently using per second. Therefore the maximum sustainable volume of wires he can use at any given time is 100 cubic centimeters.

The Semblance-created wires can do whatever a mundane steel wire does including conducting electricity, be tied into knots, round people up and such, but is made of protective Aura. Like protective Aura, they take damage when hit or otherwise come into harm and unlike weapon Aura, they can be harmed and eventually destroyed given enough damage. Specifically they will take 10% of Catalina's Aura equivalent before disintergrating and is fully functional until that.

Cat doesn't know the full story of Prism's encounters before he showed up, but it would be rude not to accept that explanation. "I understand. I am at least partially at fault after all."

Cat nods to Prism simply stating the obvious solution of 'why not both'. "So, large-scale international social engineering. Diplomatic pressure from the top down and education from the bottom up. On a personal level. refuse purchasing 'blood Dust' and contact your local representative. Join protests and write a blog, or at least share one on the internet. Sometimes it takes just one viral social campaign to change the entire society on the views towards a subject."

Catalina silently inhales as he failed to simply join the game and put the Faunus thing to be a side discussion, but he argues his points nonetheless. "No, you’ve mistaken the conclusion. The Faunus Rights Revolution is fought for equality, not supremacy or extermination. Meaning, after the dust is settled and the rights enforced, you are still going back home, meeting the same people you did before the fighting, sometimes even people you once pointed your gun towards. Dehuman- depersonalization is a strategy favored by war propaganda throughout history, but all it does is let people fight harder, not reconcile their differences and admit where they have done wrong, which was the actual goal back then. If the target is to coexist peacefully and fairly with who you are fighting, then it follows that how the other party feels should be taken into consideration on the peace table. This is also the reason why the 'collateral damage' by 'overly enthusiastic soldiers' is an unacceptable endeavor even in a war of conquest and chemical and biological warfare in no circumstances whatsoever: the aim is to defeat the combatants to achieve gains, not to inflict mass suffering; that would be an absolute atrocity both in humanitarian and utilitarian terms. Therefore allow me to reiterate what I said, that even in an open rebellion such as the Faunus Rights Revolution the feeling of the party you are fighting against is important. For one it can allow the belligerents to reach peace more easily because it is more likely to be acceptable when it's understood that's it's not personal and for another, it avoids leftover tension and resentment when the war is over. Therefore, fight if you have to, but treat your enemies like they are someone you fight because you have to, not some sort of monster that you just throw aside,"

Catalina’s expression turned stern, “And I’m sure you never did this, but never compare a person to the Creatures of-” Cat wanted to finish the sentence but realized what he meant probably goes without saying.

Then he deflates again, “Sorry, but I probably have strawmanned you there. I shouldn’t have implied that you thought the slavers as inhuman.

Cat listened carefully and let out a sigh when she refused to talk more about the thing that started the conversation in the first place. "Sure. Let's talk about our team. No, wait, my team rarely gets together... How about life in Beacon? Are there any secret chill places you go to that you can share? I know a place where I am pretty well left alone, and some other place for cheap Dust, and more importantly use Faunus labor ethically. Nothing like the half-slavery the SDC puts them into."

Catalina appears thoughtful for a moment as he finds another topic he's interested in. "In fact, let's go deeper on that! How do you think Faunus racism is caused, how are those ideas spread, and how can it be eliminated? Personally, I have a few ideas that I've bounced off of other humans and Faunus, so I'd like to gather more points of view."

Cat's grab is slipping after spending all those struggles to get her, and the Semblance burst is the last straw breaking Ayaka away from Cat.

Still in midair and continuing to drift towards the river, helped by the decreased weight and a push, he successfully landed on the other side of the river and is seeing Ayaka rushing at him already. It's not that likely she'd fall for it but he hoped she would just cross the river normally, essentially giving him an easy win. It's not easy to get her too fall for it, but he did run a few scenarios in his mind using his limited time and temporarily limited brain power.

Time is running out quickly and he decided on one of the tactics, hoping he didn't miss something obvious that make his plan fall apart like the house back there. Regardless, Cat took out the rest of his Dust and concentrated for a big use of his semblance, although he still walks around to intercept wherever Ayaka is using to cross the river.

Intercepting Ayaka, Concentrating for Semblance

Catalina took some time to gather himself and recall before answering.

"Signal has great teachers. One of them is always barely sober but is so impressive when we get to see her skill just once. She's plain cool but usually isn't too good at teaching... How about this one. One time she hid a Grimm and told us whoever lands the killing blow on it gets bouns marks. It was a Beowolf and much of us infought over it. I sniped it."

"But that's all I got. Your turn. Is your teacher eccentric?"

Catalina already foresaw what was coming as soon as Ayaka twisted her leg. Pathetic. In a street brawl between normal people that might be rather effective, as many important nerves and blood vessels pass through the crotch, but against someone with their Aura unlocked all it would do is hurt more. But Cat also has that one negated, as the knee slams in between his legs she would find it stops right before hitting anything important, no doubt the doing of his immensely versatile Semblance. Said Semblance is also to choke Ayaka with the tube that originally went to fight against the wires, wrapping it around her neck and sending some more current to her.

Ayaka continuing to struggle is impressive considering her body should be twitching all over, but Cat continues to latch on her as if he is a barnacle and she is the untreated hull of a ship. The jump is impressive and sure did a number on the ground she's standing on but didn't touch Cat, but he admitted it could very well shake himself off if he didn't nullify the impact of the knee to the crotch. But as it is he remained and took another second to reposition his rifle so as to not accidentally shoot himself then pulled the trigger again.

While in the air Cat also look at the surroundings to find a good spot to land that can turn the tide off the battle to his favor even more. And there actually is one, in the form of the river. Pushing the limit of micromanagement with his mind and starting to suffer from headaches that were only exhaustion mere moments ago, a pair of gliding wings manifested from the Sharpshooter's back, directing the two of them towards the flowing creek where electric shock can be much more damaging.

Combat stats:
