Clad in her full plate and wielding all the weapons made available, Saffron was taken in by the complexity of her new weapons. Marvelling as she shifted them between their three stages before looking up to face her opponent. 'Pretty cool huh? When they said they wanted some students for a training session in Vale I didn't think it would be anything so... out of the ordinary. Assault courses, duels, grimm hunts..... nothing like this.' Saffron exclaimed as she set up in an offensive stance, bouncing on the balls of her armoured boots.

Looks like she got a bow a few sizes too big, I hope she can draw it, it's already an unfair fight with first year vs third year. Saffron thought to herself, wondering if it would seem sporting to try to assist her opponent or if it would be taken as bragging. Still part of her revelled not only in the fight to come but being the first time in a long time fighting someone who knows nothing about her going in.

'Good luck anyway, glory to the victor and all that.' Saffron continued cheerfully giving a large grin as she bashed her new sword, in it's greatsword form, against the shield as a show that Saffron is ready to begin.

Mauve resisted the urge to make a face at her weapon. A bow. Fantastic, seeing as her archery skill was nonexistant at best. And worst, because it was a scale of absolute zero to absolute zero. Sighing, she shifted it into its secondary form, a standard enough blade. It was longer than she was used to, but the width of her normal blades made the two weapons close enough in weight that it wouldn't take too long to get used to. As for the handle, she tossed it to her right, the bow and katana forms would be of no use to her. The blade she kept in her right, dominant hand, while in her left... a fire Dust arrow. Creativity. This'd be interesting.

Her opponent seemed to be quite happy with her weapons, a greatsword and circular shield. That could mean that she was a blade wielder normally, too bad Mauve didn't know what kind, that would've helped to even the odds that currently were not. Or perhaps she was a shield user. Or even a hand-to-hand combatant if you thought creatively. Perhaps one of those annoying all-around fighters, like Nathan. At worst Saffron could also utilize that particular combo normally too. 'Enough worrying.'

She gave her oppnent a small smile and a curt nod in return to her words. "Well, I'm hoping it doesn't come down to luck," Mauve responded smoothly. Still smiling softly, the girl twirled her blade around a few times, hoping to disguise the trick she'd learnt to get used to different weights faster as simply dallying around. As she finished, Mauve moved into a defensive position, waiting for Saffron to make the first move.

Seeing her opponent decide on using a single blade and an ... arrow Saffron decided to break down the great sword back into it's two one handed forms and putting the spare on her belt. Hoping to take the initiative Saffron quickly dashed forward, charging straight for Mauve. Six meters away Saffron spun and threw her shield hoping to upset Mauve's defence. It wasn't weighted to be thrown but didn't have to go far.

Drawing the second blade Saffron continued her for two quick slashes on Mauve's left side. More used to shorter weapons Saffron underestimated her reach hitting far further down the blade than that would be optimal.

Captain Vale much? Mauve quickly dodged right, then reached across to parry the slashes with less grace than she would've liked, missing the second slash and scraping the tip of the blunt 'blade' on the ground. She turned that particular mistake into her next move, leaning on it for partial support and throwing herself into a whirling kick aimed at Saffron's upper torso, finishing in a crouch and sweeping the weapon parallel to the ground.

Turning to be side on Saffron took the kicks on her shoulder, moved closer and stepped over the sweeping strike. Hilt striking with her left sword against Mauve's head, aiming to stun, and going for a stab with her right blade in Mauve's stomach, to collapse her guard. Pressing hard Saffron's close style of fighting wasn't suited to her longer swords and made her stabs lag a fair bit but also are harder to see coming.

Glad that the first year wasn't overwhelmed by the new weapons Saffron kept up a fast paced close quarter fighting style unsuited to either weapon set but she still had the most experience with it. Locking eyes with her opponent her nose flared and quills stiffened as Saffron prepared to react to any movement with all her senses; Faunus, aural and otherwise.

Hilt smash 4%
Stab 6%

Aura: 96%(took two kicks but reduced damage because of shoulder block.)

Mauve jerked to her left to evade the hilt strike, as she'd rather take damage than get stunned or distracted. She paid for this by slowing down her reaction time to Saffron's stab, which, though it didn't strike complete center, did make contact in her side. To minimize damage and time lost, Mauve twisted her body and advanced closer, utilizing her blade to deliver a hard strike to Saffron’s own, then delivering a frontal kick to Saffron's legs while simultaneously throwing the arrow forward at her face and detonating the Dust inside, hoping to catch the student off guard with two attacks at once. As to not get caught in the explosion herself, Mauve quickly retreated as fast as she could until she was a few feet away from Saffron.

Catching the kick on her blades Saffron slipped through the attack straight into the dust arrow but she didn't stop. Fusing the blades together back into it's greatsword form Saffron took advantage of the new space between them and her new reach for a series of heavy slashes.

Eyeing the shield behind Mauve Saffron hoped to push her opponent back until she could either reclaim the shield or use it for an unexpected trip.

Mauve mentally berated herself as she realized that Saffron was the one who would benefit from the distance as her weapon had more reach. She allowed herself to be forced back to evade the slashes from her opponent's greatsword, knowing that trying to parry or deflect the attack wasn't an option considering her lesser strength and smaller weapon. She was, however, still shallowly cut by the first slash, the girl was quick with blades. But that greatsword was undoubtedly less graceful. And Mauve was fast.

As soon as the second slash came down though, Mauve utilized the undoubtedly slower-even if just by a little-moves due to the weapon's form to dash in up close, where the greatsword would be more awkward to use. There, she swung around Saffron's right to deliver a hard thwack with the blunt blade, a kick to the back of her knee, and again with her blade on her opponent's left upper arm.

Positions now reversed, Mauve's eyes darted to the shield lying on the ground, now on her opponent's side as she'd switched places.

Zoning was something that Saffron had a lot of experience with, fighting against zoning to be specific. She understood in theory the aims and how to accomplish them; maintain distance within your reach but outside theirs and prevent them from crossing that danger zone. Easier said than done. Saffron thought to herself as Mauve transcended said danger zone with ease. Parrying her first strike Saffron rushed forward for a shoulder charge which Mauve slipping through. The additional forward momentum did cause her kick to miss but left Saffron open for Mauve's last strike.

Left with two options, Saffron could either maintain a style she wasn't quite confident with and was losing in or swap to one more along with her original talents. However deciding that the purpose of the training session was more to try new styles Saffron kept up the zoning. Not letting any time pass Saffron spun her greatsword for a wild overhead strike followed by shorter, more controlled attacks trying to prevent Mauve crossing her danger zone again.

Wild overhead strike 7%
Short strike 4%

Mauve easily evaded the first overhead strike, it being wild and an overhead strike, but it opened her up for some of Saffron's follow-ups. The girl was quick with her blades. But what about her feet? Mauve hadn't seen her use them at all during the battle, and suddenly her tactics changed. She had to get closer though, Saffron was wisely trying to keep her at a distance now.

Mauve quickly produced another fire Dust arrow from the quiver on her back, throwing it as best she could at Saffron's feet, though to be honest the trajectory wasn't the best, Mauve wasn't really planning on hitting anything with it, simply distracting her opponent for a few moments. If it caught something though, well, that wouldn't hurt either. She then met the next short strike with her own weapon and advanced forward, pushing the blade away and down with it. A quick aerial placed her to the side of Saffron, where Mauve spun to strike her again on the left upper arm then performed a high spinning hook kick to her upper chest and shoulder area.

Deflecting the arrow with her great sword Saffron again let Mauve get close and paid for it with another strike against her shoulder. Seeing her opponent leap into the air Saffron had time to prepare, half-swording her greatsword met the kick with her sword. Bracing her sword at the point of impact Saffron kept moving forward trusting the point into Mauve's still airborne form.

The closer, more brutal style of half-swording simply felt right than taking advantage of her weapon's reach. The fight still has a fair while to go so I can swap back if needs be. Saffron mused as she started to advance on her opponent, grinning at the new stage of their fight.

Mauve let out an annoyed noise as she was met with the point of Saffron's sword in the her upper left back. Aerial and acrobatic movements were so much easier with Grimm, the large yet usually slower creatures. Maybe lay off of that now, it was all about trying new styles, right? Move around but less flips and such.

As Mauve landed, she quickly spun clockwise and provided another kick, this time to the sword in the area in-between her hands with the new half-swording technique in an effort to knock away the blade again. The moment her right was on the floor, she kicked again with her left at Saffron's side before darting again behind her opponent to deliver another backhanded thwack with her blade to the girl's side/back.

The additional leverage from having her hands so far apart allowed Saffron to keep her guard close against Mauve's sharp kicks but even the additional manoeuvrability of wielding the greatsword like a quarterstaff doesn't negate the fact it is still a greatsword. Force Mauve to find space by going around her guard rather than through it was a good start and Saffron counted that as a success even as the pain from the strike bit. Turning to face Mauve, Saffron advanced unleashing a storm of quick, precise but short ranged hits by alternating between stabs and hilt bashes.

Saffron was feeling as alive as ever despite the pain; quills stiff, eyes wild and blood pumping. Everything in her roared to keep swinging and leave nothing left in her tank but she kept a lid on that for now. Instead trying enjoying the hard, odd fight to it's fullest.

Saffron's Battle Data
3x4% Quick hits

Opposed to her opponent, Mauve was as calm and collected as she ever was. In a combat scenario. She deftly backed away to evade the strikes brought on by both ends of the greatsword. During that she also produced two more arrow from the quiver, one with ice Dust this time. In exchange for getting close to and touching the arrow to Saffron's blade, Mauve moved forward onto it as the other girl was making her third strike, letting it glance off of her ribcage. With her left hand, she threw one at Saffron while she just stabbed the other one down at the blade. Pick and choose darling.
