Bone of the First [SSMR]
« on: January 21, 2018, 10:20:41 AM »
Vacuo, the desert kingdom with a struggled history. The Underdog of the four kingdoms, targeted for its vast resources. And as a result, its culture became the rough and strong populace it’s known for today. To fight your own battles, this is what its people believe. So when you’ve been wronged by the unfriendly sort,unless times are dire, its become common courtesy to initially not lend a helping hand.

     It happened so fast. A crack of terrible pain and rapid footsteps running away. Solar in a daze of agony followed the only cloaked figure in the crowd that looked to be in a hurry. Her horn, it was broken halfway through in a jagged lightning bolt shaped crack. She could feel it as she held the spot it broke with both hands in an attempt to soothe the pain. For Solar it had not been long she arrived at Vacuo, let alone the combat school of Shade, she was suppose to meet her new team today, little did she know she still would.
     The cloaked figure burst through a home with a red wooden door frame, it was going through the door did Solar notice for the first time her assailant was rather short. Following after, she entered the same door only for the room to be entirely dark. A set of stairs lead down a basement and a dark hallway off to the left was all she could see. Before she could decide which way to go a scrambling noise of dirt and something breaking was heard from down the hallway. Following after the noise, Solar blindly runs down the dark, only to stub her foot on something hard. For the second time today now she was in piercing pain, looking down at what she kicked, it turned out to be none other than the square hammer that struck her horn. Curiosity got the better of her and she picks up the weapon examining it, the only thing significant about it was a symbol unknown to her, though she had a feeling she had seen it somewhere.

     A groan came from the dark, someone was there, someone hurt. Solar finally finding a light switch, flips it on to reveal a faunus man bleeding from his head. A deer faunus, with both of his antlers broken off. The sudden light stirs him awake and lays eyes on the first thing he sees, Solar with the hammer. The man calls out for help in a panicked cry, under the impression she’s the culprit. "Aargh! Somebody help!" The noise immediately attracts passerbys and in comes

Sean Acacia
Suna Arevik
Maena Nadir

They come across the scene,a man in a panicked state, bleeding from his head missing his limbs, and Solar standing in the middle of the room, with the hammer.
"Hey,so I know this looks bad..." said Solar with her hands up, but one hand still holding the hammer.

Sean wasn't really the sort who cared much for schedules -- at least, not unless someone was paying him or, conversely, threatening him. He'd woken up with the vague memory that at some point today he'd be meeting up with his new teammates, but sometime in between getting into the (cold) shower and frying up breakfast he'd let himself all but forget to check his Scroll for when. After all, he didn't want to give people the wrong impression, thinking him reliable and timely. They might even expect him to be responsible! No, best to nip that in the bud right off. And so it was that much of the morning had already gone by and the desert rat had barely given a passing thought to the big team meet-up.

One of the interesting things about the city of Vacuo is that, unlike Vale, Mistral, and especially Atlas, things aren't necessarily laid out in a clean, simple manner. Sure, you had a market district and a residential district, the slums and the VIP housing, and of course the school... but peppered all throughout were little sparks of independence refusing to conform to the given categories and set limits. The "hidden shops" of the residential district were among the city's seldom-seen gems -- if you knew and talked to the right people you could get some pretty good deals on hard to come by goods. Admittedly it was all hush-hush; there were no receipts or refunds, no warranties or even signs posted, and you could be fairly certain that whatever you bought probably fell off the back of an airship or convoy at some point, but if you were smart and knew how to haggle nearly anything could be had. Plus it wasn't a bad walk... if you knew to keep out of other people's problems.

Sean wasn't always good at that.

He was just walking by a house with distinctive red wooden door frames when the sound of a scuffle, or something very like it, reached his ears. Stopping to listen, he admittedly couldn't really be sure what was going on -- at least, not until someone started shouting for help. He hesitated; on the one hand it was none of his concern... on the other, if there was a robbery going on or something worse he was already technically a witness, whether he wanted to be or not. Plus the teachers at Shade would ream him out about 'the duty of a Huntsman to the people' if they ever found out he walked away from a crime in progress. "Ghn... ah, damnit."

Pausing for just a second at the door, the dusty-blond forced it open and stumbled across a grisly, blood-stained scene -- the sort that immediately urged his breakfast to revisit him. That guy over there wasn't just bleeding, he was missing parts of him! And there was someone else as well: a Faunus girl with ram horns holding a hammer, looking stunned and more than a little bit battered herself.

"Hey, so I know this looks bad..."

Sean opened his mouth, intending very much to say 'yeah, it looks like somebody tried to f***ing murder that guy, and you're holding a weapon', but his body had... other ideas. After a second of his jaw hanging slack on the verge of speech, he instead abruptly raised a finger in the 'one moment, please' gesture, pulled himself urgently around to the other side of the doorway, and promptly emptied the contents of his stomach into the flower beds on the front porch. Not a great start to things...

When it came to knowing the layout of the city, Suna was one of the best; it wasn't something he advertised. However, there were unexplored parts of the city, in his mind displayed as simply dark-red, that until recently were too dangerous to venture into. Now that he was in the stages of becoming a full-fledged Huntsman and Scavenger, he felt much more comfortable chipping into those previously untouched zones.

It was in one of those said zones that Suna found himself presently. He was in his mission attire and had his weapon hanging off the side of his hip, concealed, prepared for the possibility of an altercation. Sand was raised above Suna's head like a parasol giving him additional coverage from the relentless Vacuan sun, and in his hands was his scroll, his fingers tapping away as he made observations about the area. The area didn't seem as bad as people and crime records made it out to be, but Suna could've been having a lucky day or overall crime could've been taking a break. For all he knew, it could've even been both. While he was thankful about the peace, this anomaly would certainly require him to return in the future.

That wasn't the only reason Suna was around. "Kill two birds with one stone" is a motto he likes to stick by if he can help it; it makes his schedule more optimal provided that the two tasks aren't at odds with each other. In this case, Suna was also searching for someone, hoping they would have key information he could use to plot out his next scavenging mission.

Suddenly, a faint cry for help came before him and up ahead he saw a blond boy rush into a building. Suna picked up his pace, the sand above his head falling cleanly around his body as his made his way toward the house. Like the boy before him, Suna too paused. The building seemed to match the description of the one described by his other sources. He rushed in as well and made sure to drag plenty of sand in with him.

Suna entered the room, took stock of the situation, and immediately erected a sand wall separating the injured man and the apparent assailant. He had some sand reserved to blind the ram Faunus should she try to attack him and the now-vomiting boy as well. Suna couldn't blame the blond for throwing up, and Suna could feel something stirring in him as well, but a mixture of his curiousness and the darker side of the internet has led him to be fairly desensitized to this sort of stuff.

He reached into one of his pockets and pulled out a small, folded photograph. He unfolded it and held it up so that it was side-by-side with the victim, and after a few seconds he refolded it and replaced it in is pocket. He turned toward the ram.

"It really does. How about explaining yourself?"

"It really does. How about explaining yourself?"

"Someone hit me on my horn and just ran off!" Solar exlaimed, tilting her head so her "guests" could see the crack on her horn that was dripping with blood that would make her wince every so often. "I followed them in here but all I found was him and this, it's what they used on me!" she said indicating the man who was still screaming behind a wall of sand and the square hammer that had a speck of her blood on one side. "Hey It wasn't me! I didn't do this!" she pleaded, the last part she yelled at the sand that blocked her from the faunus on the other side still convinced it was her.

It was, as usual, a blisteringly sunny day, Maena thought. Thankfully, the tall building and/or cramped streets allowed pretty much anyone to bathe in the cool shadows. Which she gladly did on her way to the meeting place that'd been arranged. Yes, today was the day she'd be meeting her team. She had little clue as to who they were or what they were like apart from a few photos for identification.

Her steps were brisk and determined, Sositi disassembled at her sides and on her back. Sure, halberd was more useful to start with in a confrontation but in these alleyways, might as well be wielding a refrigerator. She knew where she was going - well, mostly, since the maps the Academy kept weren't exactly complete or precise once you moved as far away as she was right now. The various roofs covering this alley and that street didn't help either, camouflaging the real paths from any attempt at aerial recon.

She rapidly checked her scroll again - seemed to be nearing her destination - when some nearby screaming attracted her attention. She grabbed hold of her tonga and gunned it towards the source of the sound, intending to help whoever was in need.

She arrived right besides the source of the sound - a small, inconspicuous house where three other people were present, add one for the Faunus writhing and screaming in pain on the floor. She arrived right on time to hear the girl holding a large, bloodied hammer say "I didn't do that", to which she replied "If you didn't, how about dropping the fucking hammer?" before bifurcating to the other side of the wall and kneeling down to the wriggling man, leaving the other two present to deal with the suspect.

"What the is going on here" rumbled a deep voice from behind all of them.
A man so tall his head nearly scraped the celing with a powerfully built body walked up from the stairs that lead down. The tank of a man was presumably sleeping from the sunflower adorned pajamas he was wearing that didn't suit him in the least. The sight wouldv'e been laughable if not for the murderous expression in his eyes. "Argh Brother Gul over here!" The original man cried still behind the wall of sand. Hearing the urgency behind the voice, the giant barreled past the students and sand as if they weren't there."Lule what happend, who did this to you?" the giant asked in panic at the sight of his brother with blood pouring out his head.
   
The injured man known as Lule pointed a shaky finger at Solar. "What!? No! I'm telling you I..." but she was cut off by the giant now known as Gul who rapidly thrust his hand into a nearby wooden cabinet with enough force to break the wood like paper. Gul yanked his hand out and in his grip was, ironically enough, a massive sledge hammer that made the one in Solar's hand look like a toy. Solar was never scared of death, but she was scared of the pain and  possibilities this man could do. "Woah woah okay big guy let's calm down for a sec okay? If I could just explain... but Solar had to duck, with the power of a truck Gul's hammer whirled sideways aiming to destroy her top half. When avoiding the hammer, Solar innvoluntarily let go of the hammer she was carrying. It flew away and slid at a stop at Suna and Sean's feet.

The giant's hammer struck a window that opened up a hole, Solar figuring the man was not willing to reason, leapt up on the hammer and jumped off it like a spring board outside, escaping. "Get back here you Horns!" he turned to leave his house presumably to chase after Solar until he noticed the three students for the first time.
 "And what are you three supposed to be, are you with HER?" Gul howled pointing a finger at the hole in the wall. Gul was a tank of a man who looked to be in his thirties, tall beefy, and muscles the size of trees. He had a square chin and not a hint of any facial hair, or any hair for that matter. The only thing significant about him were the pair of nubs on his forehead just above his eyebrows. This man was also a faunus, it looked as though he also had his antlers cut off, but a keen eye could see they were just extremely small and intact.

This, this crazy shit right here? This was why Sean tried to stay out of other people's drama. Admittedly, this was among the worst situations he'd stumbled into, but even so...

While he'd been upchucking in the petunias, the desert rat had also been half-blindly fumbling for his Scroll. He was selfish, but not heartless -- someone in that building had just had their body torn into and was missing limbs, which meant urgent medical care was needed. Finally, when the roiling tempest in his innards subsided Sean managed to flip the device open, punch in the emergency services number, and hit send.

"Yeah, I need a med-evac airship at my current location, like right the hell NOW. ... No, I'm not the patient; some guy in the house got his limbs taken off and is probably bleeding out right goddamn now and --" He groaned, interrupted by the voice on the other end. "Yes, it's me. No, I didn't -- ... -- if you'd just stop for one -- . . . -- no, I -- . . . --NO I DIDN'T BLOW ANYTHING OR ANYONE UP! I'm a bystander to all of this and --"

"Lule what happend, who did this to you?"

Hearing the booming voice from the other side of the doorway, Sean pulled himself up to standing and glanced inside. He was just in time to see a giant of a Faunus turn a cabinet into splinters grabbing for a hammer that made the one Solar was holding look like a toy by comparison. His eyes went wide and "Ohshit" rolled off his lips without him even meaning for it to. The thunderous sound of what came next easily drowned out the hostility coming from the other side of the call.

"And what are you three supposed to be, are you with HER?"

Big, giant man, in a rage, with a wrecking ball on a stick. Sean knew a bad situation about to get worse when he saw one. "SendhelpgottagoBYE!" He shouted hurriedly into the Scroll before ending the call, only glancing briefly at the hammer that had slid across the floor in front of him before turning to book it in the same direction as horn girl. This was NOT his day for certain -- the only way he was going to get out of this mess now, especially once word got back to Shade, was to figure out what was really going on here and clear himself from suspicion. First, though, he had to survive stumbling across all of this. It was only as his feet pounded the pathway, with his brain whirling a million miles a second, that an odd pair of thoughts came to him: 'Haven't I seen that girl somewhere? The other two also looked familiar...'

The ferocity and power of the brutish Faunus left Suna in awe. The apparently assailant and the ill blond had bailed a the drop of a coin, and Suna certainly would've too had it not been for Maena and the injured Faunus.

"We have nothing to do with that girl," Suna strained out as he took a couple steps over so he was in the vicinity of Maena and the poached Faunus. The sand wall that he had erected slumped to the ground for a moment before it made its way toward the brute. Shortly after, a wave of sand began to pour into the room through all the major entryways--the door, window, and hole in the wall--which Suna sent after the furious man, also making sure to keep the sand away from them as best he could.

Maena did her best to shield the bleeding Faunus from any possible debris ensuing from the rather express demolition of the small... kitchen? Probably kitchen, judging by the cabinets.

Upon being questioned by the larger man on the subject of possible involvment with the lass who dropped the hammer, she was about to retort that the girl was 1) visibly injured as well and 2) taking care of "Lule", as it were, was far more important than chasing after one ot two possible innocents whose whereabouts were known when the guy she identified as Suna interjected and, er, otherwise stopped the bigger Faunus from hearing whatever she would've said. Instead, she turned down, continuing to protect the deer Faunus. Speaking to be heard above the rush of sand, she asked "Lule, is it? Could you tell me what happened before you ended up like this?"

"I was...fixing a hole in the wall...no not that one...a different one" Lule said in a weak voice, he pointed with his eyes a spot low on the wall where wooden planks boarded up another hole. But some of the planks were broken or ripped off the nails on the wall, making Lule's attempts at fixing it redundant.
"I didn't hear that faunus girl come in, she must've snuck in and knocked me unconsious...how did that hole get broken again?" Lule asked, not pointing at the hole Gul made but the old one that had traces of it being repaired and broken again. A ripped piece of a tan colored cloth hung on a nail on the hole.
"They're gone...gone" Lule cried as he placed his hands on his broken nubs, feeling for his faunus antlers that were nowhere to be seen. "Undo your sand so I can tend to my brother, if you have nothing to do with Horns that you let escape, you can bring her to me" Gul growled, glaring right at Suna

Unbeknown to Solar, someone other then Gul saw where she was hiding. Though following her would've been the easiest thing in the world considering the trail of blood from her horn she was unintentionally leaving behind.

As someone who was brand new to Vacuo, she couldn't recognize the mark on the hammer. But someone who was well informed of the daily life in the desert kingdom would recognize it easily. Not everyone warrior was capable or had the skills to make any weapon of their choosing. It wasn't uncommon for a fighter to use a weapon outside their skillset to handle a creature that was better suited for it. The mark was the Weaponmaker Makar Hemmer, owner of a self owned shop called Makarms. Makarms supplied dust and weapons for not just Huntsman, but even for the average fighter without the right skills. His supply was known for being inexpensive and of average quality, a safe place to shop considering its enviroment.

Solar ran for dear life in fear and terror. Looking back she didn't see the giant following her so she turned a corner into an alley. She had to do something about her horn, the pain was becoming unbearable. She was never good with medical treatement and it had never been broken so extensively, she undid the ribbon on her horn and tied it back over the wound in a poor attempt to stop the bleeding. It still hurt. She could handle hordes of Grimm but being accused for a crime? What a great way to start at Shade. She had been looking forward to this day for years and she felt like the world was intent on stopping it. She was a criminal, wanted, and unwelcome. As far as she knew, no one was around, so she let the tears fill her eyes that had nothing to do with her horn.

(OOC: Gotta say, this thread's off to a pretty solid start! I do enjoy a good mystery to be solved.)


Catching up with the girl from the 'scene of the crime' was clearly step one, and Sean fortunately wasn't too far behind her when he started running. Nor, as it turned out, was she doing a particularly great job of escaping -- the trail of blood flecks on the cobblestone was basically pointing the way, after all. He was only slightly worried when she veered into an alleyway up ahead; he'd learned these back streets as a kid, so unless she was just as knowledgeable and twice as nimble he knew he could catch up. That, as it turned out, wasn't really necessary.

He slowed as he approached, waiting and listening for a second just to make sure she wasn't getting ready to turn around and ambush him. Instead, sobbing echoed softly down the alleyway. That on its own said a lot, he realized; mentally, Sean's tally of how likely this Faunus girl was to be trustworthy was slowly ticking up. He thought about it for a second, then slowly and non-threateningly stepped into the alley with his open palms held up for Solar to see.

"Take it easy... I'm not here to cause trouble." He slowly walked over, looking at the injury to her horn. Even with the improvised wrap it was pretty clearly a bad break. It wasn't nearly as bad a situation as that guy back in the house -- Luke, or Lute, or something? -- but it clearly needed real medical attention just the same. He sighed, wondering how he'd let himself slip into such a mess in the first place, then leaned against the wall opposite Solar and slid into a sitting position.

" . . . You say you didn't to that, back there. I believe you." He started. Glancing over her, he spotted what looked like the blades of an axe, tucked away as best as something like that can be. "I happen to know a few things about weapons physics, like how it's a lot harder to take somebody's limbs off with a hammer -- like what you were holding -- than a blade. I'm also not dumb enough to think that someone with intent to chop a guy up would switch to a blunt weapon to finish the job, especially when doing that risks being caught. So, yeah...

Reaching into his satchel and fishing around briefly, Sean pulled out a lollipop and offered it to Solar. "Thing is, when something goes sideways in this city I usually get treated as guilty until proven innocent, -- just how it is. I know what you're going through right now... and we're sorta in this mess together now." He paused. "We really need to get that horn patched up before you pass out. By the by, do I know you from somewhere?"

Everything would've been all fine and dandy. Would've.

Suna balled his fists. "We had it under control until your little fit allowed for her to escape!" He relaxed his hands and the sand stopped flowing into the room.  He returned the glare of the brute. "You've got this under control. I'll leave you to it". It was obviously sarcastic but his tone said otherwise.

He looked down at Maena. "That guy called in the Hats(cops) so we should probably get out of here". He made his way toward the door and stepped onto something hard, discovering that it was the bloodied hammer when he dispersed th he sand. He picked it up and carried it outside. "I'll take out the sand when the girl leaves, or in a minute. Whichever comes first".

Back in the sunlight, Suna noticed there were some murmuring bystanders in the vicinity but he quickly ignored them. He looked around for the blond and assailant but they'd already hone. He reformed his sand parasol and left in an opening for a bit of light to shine through. Giving Maena a minute to leave if she wanted to, he to examine the weapon.

He placed the hammer into the beam and rotated it about. It was fairly new and had a logo that he recognized as Makarms which he new was in the area but as to exactly where he wasn't sure. Suna turned toward the bystanders. "Can anyone point me to Makarms?"

Maena moved aside for the giant do pick up his brethren but didn't come out, waiting for the two Faunus. Seriously, the least they could do was provide some sort of escort to the nearest emergency center. She sincerely doubted that, as strong as the larger man was, he would be able to easily defend both himself and Lule with his arms literally full.

She briefly turned towards her - now she recognized him - soon-to-be teammate. "Instead of being a dick, how about you try and understand the emotions of somebody who just woke up to find someone he holds dear on the ground, missing antlers and bleeding?", she said in a somewhat berating tone. She then turned and no longer paid Suna any mind, continuing by addressing Gul this time, albeit in a serious and non-chastising tone; "I'd like to escort you to the nearest emergency center you know about. Nothing guarantees that whoever did this won't try to come in for a second round."

SUNA MAENA
Spoiler: ShowHide
"I appreciate that I do, however that's unnecessary, Horns got what she came for. She was no doubt jealous of my brother's antlers and stole them away" Gul explained to Maena, his expression softened for the first time at her offer to help. He had taken out medical supplies out of cabinets and started to bandage Lule's wounds as he talked "No, all I want is to find that horned faunus and DO THE SAME TO HER" he bellowed at Maena "Now get out and FIND HER!" he said as he practically shoved her out the door with his voice alone.

It took Suna a couple tries, but eventually he was able to get directions to the dust shop Makarms, assuming they were correct. It seemed the name was common but few people actually went there.




SEAN

Spoiler: ShowHide
"Take it easy... I'm not here to cause trouble."

Solar practically jumped at the voice, she was too prideful to let a stranger see her like this so she quickly wiped her face pretending she wasn't just crying. The redness in her eyes wasn't convincing Sean in the least. She watched him take a seat across from her and recognized him as the one who threw up upon arrival. Despite the circumstances she couldn't help but snicker at the thought.


...So, yeah... I believe you."


Those three words brightened her expression back. Laugh when your scared,
just like dad taught



Reaching into his satchel and fishing around briefly, Sean pulled out a lollipop and offered it to Solar. "Thing is, when something goes sideways in this city I usually get treated as guilty until proven innocent, -- just how it is. I know what you're going through right now... and we're sorta in this mess together now." He paused. "We really need to get that horn patched up before you pass out. By the by, do I know you from somewhere?"

Where she was raised there was no candy, but with curiosity she took the lollipop and looked at it with a quizical look. At the mention of fixing her horn, she assumed that he was offering her some kind of medicine. She removed the wrapper and started rubbing the candy on her wound. Something didn't seem right, but she continued anyway. "Not that I know of" she said answering his question. Solar was not adept at using her scroll, the names and faces of her team were sent to each member but she wasn't able to figure out how to open it, much less access information on it.

The perplexed look on Sean's face as Solar rubbed the lollipop over the break in her horn basically spoke for itself. ". . . You are not from around here, I'm guessing." He pulled out another set of lollipops, unwrapping one and popping it into his mouth before offering her the other -- this one watermelon flavor. "It's not medicine, it's candy. Sugar. A sweet treat to eat. Comfort food, basically." He smiled at her, all while wondering what sort of backwater this girl had come from where she'd never seen a lollipop before. If nothing else, her ignorance made it seem even less likely that she'd have attacked and maimed somebody in cold blood. What a day this was turning out to be.

Rising to his feet and offering his hand to help her up, Sean hooked a thumb towards the opposite end of the alleyway. "Lucky you, I know this city like the back of my hand. There's a doc who lives just up the road who owes me a favor; she'll get you patched up. Then we can sort out this mess." He pulled out his Scroll as he started walking, gesturing for Solar to follow. "I just gotta call my team, let them know I won't make the meet-up today -- I'm probably already late, but what else is..."

He was about to say 'new', but had reached the contacts page Shade sent with the photos and Scroll numbers of Team SSMR, basically dead-stopping in his tracks as his eyes took in the faces. Several long seconds went by in silence before he looked up at Solar, back down to the screen, and then back to Solar again, blinking in surprise. "...Wait a tick." He held up the Scroll so Solar could see, her picture sitting right next to his on the roster. "Are you...?"
