Lyssa followed the others on board the airship, taking a seat with a fair amount of distance from the others. Much like Amane, she sat there quietly. Jima had asked the same thing that she herself had been wondering, so she opted to wait and listen. Hopefully, such information wouldn't end up being necessafy, but being extra prepared was always the way to go.

Between the time it took for Lyssa to holster her guns and grab the rifle from her back, a good number of Amarant's swings made contact. The first few hits made her stumble back, him and his swift attacks easily taking advantage of her vulnerability. After firmly planting her boots on the ground, she eventually managed to block the rest of the assault, gripping her weapon with both hands to shield herself multiple times.

Solaris repositioning to be behind Amarant was, in her eyes, definitely the best way to go about grounding him. With how damp the air around them had suddenly become, her clothing was already wet and weighing her down. Lyssa was sure that she herself wouldn't be fast enough to take advantage of the opportunity and take out his wings. She could, however, do her best to keep him from evading her partner.

Ignoring his advice on the usage of her semblance, Lyssa activated it once again, forming two glowing barriers a few feet to the left and right of Amarant in an instant. Assuming her plan worked, avoiding Solaris' blow would require him to either shatter one of the shields or go through Lyssa. Aiming to prevent the latter, the tall woman activated the mechanism to shift her weapon to its glaive form. She gave three horizontal swipes at him with the blade the moment it emerged from the gun, focusing more on keeping him at a distance from her rather than striking him.

"Oh! Oh! Me!" One of Vivian's hands shot up, waving a bunch at the strange moustache man as she jumped a couple of times. After a moment, she snickered, bringing the arm back down. "Nah, just kidding. No clue who lost it. But, like, I'll definitely take that off your hands if you don't want it." What purpose for a fake moustache could she possibly have? Vivian herself didn't even know, but that was totally only because she didn't have one.

Lyssa marched towards the pickup location, storming past a few people and earning dirty looks on the way. A morning spent arguing with her teammates, followed shortly after by another argument with her sister. Of course, it was all her fault, being a grumpy jerk and all. 'Why do I have to make my own life difficult?' It couldn't be that difficult to not be a shitbird for one day, and yet, she failed every time. For now, she simply wished to focus on her mission, hopefully to the point where she'd forget about the obnoxious start to the day.

These types of jobs were ones that she was more than familiar with. Her semblace, stature and strength all made for one hell of an effective bodyguard. That didn't usually matter however, as the bodyguard gigs she did manage to get almost always ended uneventfully. For once, it seemed like there was a chance this one would be different, though not for the better.

While she certainly wasn't much of a planner, Lyssa took each mission she was tasked with very seriously. Knowing even the littlest amount of info about an employer could make a big difference. It didn't take much research at all to find out what had gone down last time these 'Royales' hired students. Sure, the bunch made it out fine, but not without blood on their hands. If the Royales were worried about the same people attacking again, would these potential hostiles be equally willing to fight to their deaths to reach the target? In all of her years of fighting, not once had she been in a situation that required her to take a person's life. Hopefully, today wouldn't be the day. Maybe she was tough, but even she doubted her ability to handle that with ease.

'... My feelings about it don't matter.' If it came down to protecting someone else, she would do it, because that was her job. Why did she feel anxious at all, anyway? That wasn't normal. Everything today would go perfectly fine, and she'd be sent back to the Academy after the job was over feeling absolutely bored out of her mind. That was always how things turned out.

Drawing her attention away from her scattered thoughts and to the two individuals at the landing platform, Lyssa approached the duo. She almost looked overprepared, with two guns on her back, another two at her hips, and a tactical vest covering her torso. "Yo. I'm Lyssa. This is the right place, yeah?"

Right off the bat, Lyssa was forced to act defensively, her semblance activating to immediately form a protective barrier between her and his attack. While the blast of ice was mostly blocked, she felt an intense gust of freezing air blow past her on both sides, making it clear just how close she had been to becoming a popsicle. Not having much time to spare, she lifted both of her guns at Amarant the moment he turned to lunge at Solaris. Not wanting to stay close, she backed up slowly from both them and her cover while letting off four shots of ice aimed for Amarant's back.

'Holy shit.'

That was all that went through Lyssa's mind for the first few moments after she realized who exactly they would be fighting. Suddenly, this was no longer just a somewhat special fight. For all she knew, she could never get another chance like this again. While she remained calm on the exterior, she couldn't help but wonder briefly if she was in over her head, a thought that rarely ever crossed her mind. However, even if she were to get absolutely stomped in this fight, it could still teach her a thing or two. She still intended to use every bit of her strength to keep that from happening.

Once he had finished talking, Lyssa glanced over at Solaris, the bird comment earning a quiet chuckle from her. "That's a shame, I was hoping I'd get to see you take off into the sky at some point." But really, what was the point of bird faunus if their wings were useless? Whatever, that wasn't very important at the moment. She drew one of her pistols, quickly swapping out the rounds in it for dust-infused ones that came from one of her vest's many pockets.

"We'll just have to bring him down here. If we can't, there won't be a whole lot I can do to assist. Let's see if ice does the trick." After finishing, she holstered it and repeated the process for the second revolver before finally redrawing the first. With both loaded guns held at her sides, she simply stared at their opponent, waiting for the match to begin.

Lyssa surveyed their wide open surroundings as Solaris ran the game plan by her. Staying away from the action and following the orders of a stranger were two things that she didn't usually enjoy, but this was a special case. It wasn't her place to try and argue with an Atlesian Specialist. Even if she did feel like her talents were being underestimated, it was hardly the time to complain. Having a position like that was an obvious indicator of talent, something she could respect. Not following the woman's instructions would only accomplish a swift loss for the two, and fighting alongside someone of such experience was definitely an opportunity she didn't want to waste. After all, a lot more could be learned here than her normal training, which usually was limited to picking fights with her own teammates.

"I know. I'll keep my distance," she answered calmly, her gaze still wandering around the stadium. Her hands moved to rest idly on both of her holstered revolvers, readying for the arrival of their target. Whatever it was that they would be fighting, she could only hope that she could shoot it. "Gimme a signal if you need a hand."

I'll sign up Lyssa, as pushing her own limits is one of her favorite ways to train.

Vivian dropped from the sky a moment later, slamming her elbow down on the Ursa's upper back as it lay there stunned. She was pretty sure her rabbit ears picked up the sound of cracking bone, but that didn't mean it couldn't still get back up. Even after Topaz struck it on the face, she figured it would be best to make absolutely sure. From her spot atop the weakened beast's back, she kneeled down and pulled both her arms back before beginning a rapid barrage of steel punches. Her arms moved at an unnaturally fast rate, absolutely pummeling the Ursa's skull from behind like two jackhammers. Both arms let out the whir of spinning motors, showing no signs of tiring out. Despite the furiousness of her fists, Vivian herself looked rather calm. Her head tilted as she observed the Ursa curiously, trying to figure out if it was still alive.

"Hmm..." The assault of metal slowed down, giving the monster a few more solid hooks before she finally stopped. "... Yep." If it hadn't been already, it was definitely dead now. The lack of movement from the monster as well as the dark steam emanating from its now partially flattened head just about confirmed it.

Somewhat distracted by her own attack, Vivian didn't realize what exactly Topaz was talking about until after she hopped off of the Ursa and took a look around. The Atlesian Knights were abandoning them. That was... odd? Definitely not what was supposed to be happening. "Maaaybe they're leaving the rest to us? Those bots are probably expensive." It seemed unlikely, but she was unable to come up with any other reasoning.

With all the chaos, it seemed that actually coming up with a proper plan wasn't working out. The Grimm she had planned on engaging had just been gunned down by Atlesian Knights. Perhaps playing things by ear would be more appropriate for the situation. Her eyes darted around until they landed on the group of small Nevermore headed for Sheer.

"Heads up!" Not having much time to act, her semblance activated, no movement required on her part to create the translucent, glowing sphere that floated about a foot above the ground in front of her. Hopping up and stomping on it, the aura-bubble compressed before bouncing back and sending her straight up into the air. They were approaching fast, but she could spike at least one of the flying bastards, hopefully buying Sheer a little more time. She lifted her arms above her head, swinging both fists down at the top of one incoming Nevermore's skull as gravity pulled her back down towards the train.

Before Vivian could respond to Sheer, her attention was robbed by the loudspeaker as well as the subsequent roars that shook the passenger car. Along with the others she went, entirely disregarding the advice that came from the intercom. All the while, she had to wonder if her wish of having something interesting happen was partially responsible for the current attack...  Next time, she would be sure to ask the universe for something involving less imminent danger.

Strolling up beside Airi, the faunus girl brought one metallic hand to her chin, humming to herself as she assessed the situation. The Ursa was definitely an issue that had to be dealt with, but if the train was blown to bits, they wouldn't have anything to protect. While she could assist in taking down the big dude, her guns wouldn't do much for her there, and her fists would only really hurt it if she could get up high enough to bash his head. Her weapons would be much more efficient at dispatching groups of smaller Grimm. Once Vivian reached her conclusion, she nodded, her hand returning to her side to draw her pistol.

"If you three wanna take him, I'll try and protect the dust. I'll shout if I need help." She looked over at the others, at least, those that had yet to charge into battle. It might be a good idea to wait for some sort of approval before she would run off. "Everybody cool with that?"

Vivian sat slouched in her seat as the first two introduced themselves, her attention divided by the view outside the window. Her tall faunus ears tilted in their general direction to catch what they were saying while her eyes remained locked on the gorgeous crimson landscape. It wasn't often that she passed through this area. For the moment, she wanted to enjoy the scenery. But at the same time, she realized it would probably be rude to ignore the others. After Airi had finished, she turned back to face the group, giving them a warm smile before speaking up.

"I'm Vivian, I go to Beacon. Same year as you guys." She slumped down further in her seat in an atempt to get comfier, her hands moving to the pockets of her jacket. "And you're not the only one that can't wait to get out... Gettin' a little tired of these missions where nothing happens." Perhaps it was a good thing if an assignment to protect something ended up being uneventful, but knowing that didn't make it any more exciting.
