The Vale Region / Re: Frostbite [Closed]

Nicolas watched as Savas charged toward him. While he looked calm on the outside, his heart was racing. There was no sense in blocking or parrying any of his attacks--Savas would break you all the same--so the next logical thing would be to dodge. Coupled with the fact that Nicolas was handicapped, a brief feeling of regret shot through his mind. He took a deep breath and felt his heart ease up a little.

"This is no time for hesitation, Nick," he said beneath his breath. The glow of his aura grew stronger around his cane-wielding hand, and as Savas approached with his sword raised, a flurry of propulsion Dust was released from his cane. With a short flash of light, Nicolas was sent flying away from Savas. The impact was something he had to get used to, but he was able to retain his footing nonetheless, albeit barely.

Nicolas switched to attack mode immediately, knowing that he had to keep Savas out of attack range for as long as he could. The aura around his hand glowed again, and this time there was a mix of ice along with the propulsion Dust. He waved his free hand and two icicles formed from thin air, and with a quick gesture toward Savas, they shot towards him.

Clan Gladiis Residential District (Outskirts)
Outdoor Sparring Arena

"I'm sure. Whether it be now or later, this is something I need to do. For myself".

After a few minutes, the party arrived at an outdoor sparring arena. The terrain, having been freshly cleared, was hard dirt.On one side of the arena was the aura display, capable of displaying up to eight individuals and built to withstand all sorts of weather.  Everywhere else along the perimeter of the arena were stands where spectators would watch fights, but currently they were vacant. The arena itself was decently sized, large enough to comfortably accommodate two individuals, but once the number is ramped up to eight, it gets a bit crowded.

Aurelia plopped herself down on one of the seats, a look of slight worry spread across her face. Nicolas made his way to one end of the arena and equipped the bracelet. When he turned it on, the arena's aura display lit up with his name and a full aura bar. He tapped his cane against the ground and his nickle-colored aura began to shimmer.

"I'm ready when you are, Savas".

"You can never be too careful when you're this far out from the mainlands. One bad encounter, be it Grimm or pirate, and we'd be in the bellies of those monstrous Grimm lurking beneath the waves". Jackson pointed a thumb to the edge of the ship.

As the conversation shifted back to Cordell's ship, the seriousness of the pirate captain spoke volumes; Jackson returned the same tone to her. "I understand that this information can put you and your ship in jeopardy, and thank you for trusting us with it." Jackson reached out and accepted the handshake. "With that being said, the info would be useless with me. It would be better if you spoke to our Systems Officer and Chief Engineer. Keep it on a need-to-know basis". Jackson released himself from her grip, his hand following up with a radio. "Barry, send Jasper and Terrence into the conference room. I'll be there shortly". Barry acknowledged the order and the radio went silent. Jackson turned back to Cordell. "Allow me to invite you inside, Captain. And you guys [the crew handling the newly-acquired cargo], don't forget to close the door".

The fact that the gangsters seemed to fear Sovereign made her worried, though her more immediate worry were the approach of some grunts to take on Airi and Lyra. Airi readied herself as one of them charged at her. The brute threw out a vertical swing which she was able to easily dodge; compared to her duelist peers, these guys were like drying paint. Still, they were decently strong and one hit could possibly spell disaster for her so she still had to be cautious. Airi responded by landing a rocket kick to the back of her attacker's knee, causing him to kneel to the ground, and followed it up with a rocket kick to his head which made him no longer viable for combat. She turned toward the remaining grunts and returned to her stance.
"Don't make me hurt the rest of you".

Avery made his way down to the engine room with haste only to find an exhausted, out-of-breath Dorian. Avery himself could feel his accelerated heartbeat reverberating through his chest, but he did his best to keep himself straight. He rushed over to Dorian's side and placed a hand on his shoulder. "Dorian, you don't look so well. We should-," Avery was interrupted by a sudden and strange movement of the ship. He looked toward the console Dorian was operating and saw what was happening. And he thought his heart was already racing. "I think we should get out of here before it's too late".

Avery found the intercom. "Topaz, Aurum. Get topside. We have to leave ASAP". He let his finger off the button and turned back to Dorian. "Are your legs still working or do you need a hand?"

Suna managed to keep on his feet, which was a feat all things considered, but that was about it. By the time he had stabilized himself enough to shift his focus elsewhere, Solar immediately knocked both of them over the edge of the building. His mouth opened as if to say something but nothing came out, his body instead moving on its own. Suna reached out and grabbed Solar, bringing her closer to him, and used what was left of his concentration to reactively bring up as much sand as he could to cushion their fall.

His sand packed a punch, much more than intended. The hit knocked Solar and Suna off to the side, but their vertical velocity had been reduced nonetheless. He hit the ground with a small thud and laid still for a moment before the entire situation came back to him. Suna shot up and looked back up at the roof where Sean now was. He turned his attention back in the direction of the cloaked figure and he went off, looking for a way to get back onto the rooftops.

Running into Sean and Solar, Suna was confident that the culprit was done for, but their sudden acrobatics caught him off guard. Wasting no time, Suna did his best to copy the maneuver. He launched himself off the vehicle, and using the support of his sand, made his way up the wall, very nearly clutching the edge of the roof when his fingers slipped away and that familiar sense of dread filled him.

 This momentary sense of dread triggered something in him and a tower of sand shot up off the ground, knocking into Suna with a great force and sending him flying onto the roof. Suna hadn't expected that to happen himself as evidenced by his horizontal landing. He gt back to his feet as quickly as he could, but he knew that he had lost a ton of momentum. Still, it seemed like eh had the support of those strangers so he continued on after the cloaked figure.

Avery jumped back, the engineering of the glass paying dividends for his safety as the glass cracked at the sudden Dust impact. Drones swarmed out to repair it, but it was going too slow. He went back to the intercom.

"I'm going to meet up with you, Dorian. The Dust is doing work on the glass up here and the sensors aren't coping well with the storm." Before he went back down into the ship, Avery looked around the bridge for a control panel dedicated to the management of the drones.

Jackson crossed one arm across his chest, his other hand tapping at his chin. He nodded as Cordell told him what she knew.

"No need to apologize, Captain. We had an idea of what we might be getting into, some more than others," Jackson said as he shot a glance toward the bridge where the chief officer remained. Despite the officer's objections to helping Cordell, Jackson knew it was in good faith and that without him, there would be nothing to counterbalance Jackson's occasional recklessness. "Besides, if they try something with us," Jackson moved his hand away from his face, formed a fist, and sent it into the palm of the other, "we won't let them escape so easily next time."

I'll throw in Izumi + Obsidian Rose. When White Fang plot ties up, hopefully I'll have another villain to throw in.

Suna nearly swore at the bang but was immediately interrupted by an intruder that wasn't himself. Dazed from the explosion, it took a moment for him to stumble out of the house before he gave chase to his assailant.

The house was sketchy--the typical abode of underground criminals. Suna took a deep breath to prepare for his entrance, but before he could take a step towards the door, his scroll began to vibrate. He brought it out and saw that it was a number he didn't recognize.

["Hey, so... rough start, right? Hellova team meet-up. Sorry I didn't stick around to say 'hi' earlier Suna, but this situation's a little bit crazy. Where do we stand right now? I've got Solar here and she is keen to clear her name. Any thoughts?"]

It took Suna a second to register what was happening? Team...?" he muttered under his breath in a lapse of concentration. He refocused himself. "So the ram's name is Solar, huh? And she's with you?" A small number of sand particles floated around Suna's person. "I'm going to ping you location. Come if you want. I don't have time to wait for you guys to arrive, though." Suna swiped away from the call and sent a ping to the group. He walked up to the door and looked around to make sure the coast was clear before dropping his scroll into the sand, covering it with his semblance. He added much more sand to his hammer escort, took a deep breath, and turned the doorknob.

Suna made sure to keep his eyes focused on the path ahead of him as he walked toward and then past Maena. He could hear her leave the alleyway in the opposite direction of both him and the other pair. He hoped that she wasn't intending to revisit the scene of the crime.

Once he felt that it was safe to do so, Suna let the sand and hammer fall away from his hand and he resumed dragging it behind his person. He paused as he reemerged from the darkness of the alleyway and evaluated his surroundings. Suna glanced at the piece of paper once more. "This is going to be a while...," he muttered.

Suna barely caught Sean and Solar's departure as he rounded the corner of the alleyway; he and Maena were the only ones remaining. He was unsure of what to do next, mostly in regards to the girl that clearly did not like him. Well, none of them really left a good impression on Suna: of the other two, one threw up almost immediately then booked it, and the other is a suspect of a nasty crime.

Trying to act while the girl's attention was on the departers, Suna released the sand from his control. He reached down and put his hand against it, coating his palm with a very thin layer of sand, before picking up the hammer. Still within his grasp, Suna made his way toward the exit of the alleyway.
