Within Nature ~ Training [Mikelobmike] (CLOSED)
« on: April 24, 2018, 04:40:38 PM »
When Teddy's turn for Budonoki's attention came, the old faunus led the younger to a spot not far from camp. Here the trees were thick and their shadows fell a deep amber, the air tinged with hints of sticky-sweet sap and decaying leaves. Budonoki kept to a casual, easy-going pace, letting the student fall into step without urgency.

"Though you may not know it, mister Williams," The surgeon-sage began. "You and I have a good bit in common. Besides both of us being faunus, we've also had much of our lives and world view defined by the actions of those who did -- and did not, unfortunately -- wish to see the peoples of Remnant live in peace with one another." He smiled over at Teddy, though the expression on his face was burdened with a quiet sorrow. "I'm sad to say that, although I never met your father, I have nothing but admiration for the way in which he lived his life. I suspect he would be proud to see you on the path to becoming a Huntsman yourself."

It was a heavy subject for simply being small talk, to be sure, and it seemed there was more that the old sage wanted to say... however, he stopped short, reconsidering. "Tell me... do you know where a Huntsman's greatest strength comes from?"

Teddy had started to grow impatient with the elder faunus's lessons as they went on in the forest around him. It was hard to relax in the beautiful grove knowing that any second could lead to a new lesson.

The air was sour with melancholy as Teddy was reminded of his father. Teddy could not help but miss him, even after the years went by. Teddy kept a mostly neutral expression, internalizing most of his sorrow. "He was a good man. From what I've heard, and excellent huntsman as well. He taught me so many things." he said, shaking his head to keep himself from trailing off again.

Teddy kept his hands behind him, playing with the sleeves of his jacket as they went. "A huntsman's greatest strength? I...I guess it would have to be adapting. Changing strategies, avoiding enemy strengths, exploiting enemy weaknesses. That's how huntsmen stay alive."

Budonoki smiled. "A close second, to be sure -- and a valuable lesson in its own right. But in this case, I'm speaking of persistence. To press on where others would turn away, to pursue those goals which are most difficult to reach; whether its is in training our bodies, drawing on the strength of our Auras, or simply being willing to root our feet when fear would have us turn and run, the greatest strength of any Huntsman or Huntress comes from a willingness to take the difficult road over the easy one."

"I have a task for you, if you're willing to undertake it."
The old faunus pulled out a small Scroll-chip, offering it to Teddy. "This area, as you know, is scattered with ruins from pre-kingdom eras. An archaeological dig was working on one such site not too far from here until Grimm activity forced them to withdraw. The area should be quiet right now, but I'd like you to take a look around just to be certain. This chip contains a map, photographs, and research notes that may be useful to you. I'm only asking you to check the surface, but there's also a large underground area as well and the researchers reported finding several artifacts that, in their haste to leave, they were unable to take with them. It's up to you how far you're willing to go on this, mister Williams," Budonoki placed a hand on his young student's shoulder. "What do you say?"

Theodore wasted little time in taking the chip and putting it in his scroll. A visual can help lead to a plan, and a plan helps stop the panicking. "Well...I'll take a look at it. I want to be cautious, since there was mention of grimm activity." he said, rapidly looking through the maps and photographs that were now on his scroll. "I'll...I'll see what I can do."
