'Emberstone Firearms, huh?'

Mikado couldn't remember Smokey ever mentioned it to him that his family owned a business. Especially one that works with the SDC.

Silently he looked at the building. It was definitely in a better shape than most of the other building they had passed. Alone The advertising sign looked as if it was planned for a livelier city.
Hard to believe that this was once the capital of the kingdom. So gray and monotonous, even though he had to admit that the silence was quite pleasant. Since the arrival in Beacon and especially now with the festival going on, he didn't get enough of it after all.

He continued to study the building. Smokey wanted to visit his family, okay, understandable, but that didn't explain why he couldn't just tell them. What a waste of time following him here... He will never get those hours back. Well, now that he was already here, he could at least also take a look. There wasn't anything better to do anyway...

He followed Serin at a distance through the front entrance into the building.

For a fraction of a second Kisha froze in her motion. "Oh, he... So he is in a coma? I'm so sorry," she said after hearing about Taro's condition. That was the first time she heard about it, normally tidings like these spread like a wildfire in the deciduous forest. Then again, compared to the other students in Beacon, she was basically new herself. It hadn't been that long since Blair and her arrived as the replacement of team ROSE. Then it became BSEK, than INKK. Now that she fought about it, it had been only 2 months... Maybe she was just too late and the discussion about the incident had already calmed down.
"But..." she began after a short silence "You have to expect something like this We are trained here to become the protectors of the world after all. That's our decision and we have to live with the consequences" Her voice took on a slightly bitter tone at these words if you looked closely you could even see a glimmer of despair in her eyes.
What else should she feel? The world they live in is unfair and unpredictable. To deny that would be a grievous mistake. Her jump in personality went as fast as it came and she turned her head to Calen with another, benevolent grin.
"Sounds like an interesting team. I can't wait for us to introduce them to each other. Hehe~ That sure will be a funny encounter "

When Calem finally came to her aid she finally let go of the sail and watched attentively as he formed the individual nodes. W-Was she expected to memorize all of them by the end? How was the first one he showed her tied again? Kisha was so busy repeating and sorting the usage and formations of the knots in her head that she almost missed Calen's statement.
"Huh?- Oh Sure, Ai Ai Captain Mood killer!" she finally answered with a salute and turned to the not so obvious steering wheel. Relatively sure with what she was doing, even though she didn't even know what exactly this was supposed to be, she grabbed the lever with both hands, ready to change the direction of the boat, in case they would threaten to drive into something.

"Awful!?" You're calling this an awful thing!? Are you even aware of what's happening here? " she asked in disbelief, the grin on her face just widening "It's wonderful! You have no idea what's going to happen and that's what makes it all that much more interesting! Where is the fun and the thirst for adventure in something you already know? After all, it's not as if we were in great danger. Should something happen we can still swim to the shore or... Well, I would have a way that would bring us there directly. Just- Just enjoy being haphazardly for a change. These are the memories that stay with you the best."

She gave him one last, big, joyful smile and then turned back to steer the boat. She didn't want to lie, she had already forgotten half of the things Calem had explained to her, and the next time she gets on a boat, she would be as haphazardly as she is now, but that only made the situation better.

As more of the stars light up in the night sky, the cool wind pulled in, filling the now taut sails with air and blowing her hair in the wind. Dreamily, she stared ahead and the light on the stars reflected in her eyes. Without even noticing it, she began to softly hum a song, "Nenene ne ne, we'll always be this young, nenene ne ne, you'll never have to run..."

At a noticeable distance, Mikado followed the rest of the team through the streets of the city and finally through the door of the restaurant. He only glanced briefly at the large white sign next to the front door. It showed the silhouette of a dog and the words "We must stay outside" and "No pets allowed" were written in capital letters below. Say what you want but in this regard, Kiro belonged in the category 'pet'.

It wouldn't be much of an effort to deactivate his semblance and make the dragon disappear from the scene, but it wasn't the effort that made Mikado never 'turn off' Kiro. There was more to it. He got used to him.
Semblance or not, he had a stronger bond to Kiro than to any of his teammates. However, when they entered the restaurant, the dragon was nowhere to be found. Mikado had put him in his backpack on their way back to Vale, mainly to alleviate the weight on his head during the long flight. In there, between some thin books and a water bottle, the rabbit size creature had enough space to... Lay and wait, it's not like he can get bored anyway.

He placed the half-opened backpack next to his chair and sat down at the same table as the rest of the team BSSM. Silently, he turned the menu on its back and opened the first page. And immediately closed it again after reading through the first three rows of the beverage section. When the waiter finally came and asked for their order, he answered with a terse "The caramel latte" and handed him the menu. He didn't even look at the listed food!

Mikado spent the flight time on his scroll. Although looking out of the window had been a good way to pass some time, the passing clouds and the underlying landscape quickly became boring, so he turned towards his alternative. Sudoku. He had always liked the logical puzzle game and with his focus on it, time passed much faster.

After the bullhead arrived at his destination he gave the driver a neutral nod and followed behind the rest of the team, heading straight for Smokey.

He... hadn't really had a reason to follow him. Now that he thought about it, he would have rather stayed in Atlas and explored the city for himself but was it too late for that now. He stopped beside Billy, arms crossed, not saying anything.

"Yes, pistachios," Kisha answered Ismael with a bright laugh "What did you think I'd say? Chocolate? Believe me, it's hard to love something listless when it's around you every day," She listened to the introductions of her teammates, but couldn't say that the information was anything new to her, after all, they already knew each other for a couple of months, enough time to know what they like and dislike. For her at least.

It shouldn't be a big surprise that she was the first to speak up at Kins question, "Well, unpacking doesn't take long, if necessary we have time for it later, I would say that we are doing something together now. However, there is not a lot of things we can do here, at least not without getting into trouuuuuu-. Oh wait, wait!" Kisha reached under her bed and pulled out her own suitcase, which she still didn't completely unpacked to this day. Clothes and anything important was of course already stowed in the room, but smaller items such as a small selection of comic books and various other odds and sods laid there scattered and messy around inside the suitcase. Including was a transparent box of poker cards. Only cards, no chips. She took out the box and laid it on the bed next to her, then stoved the case under her bed again.

"We can play Thirty-One, I hope you know how it works. It's really simple, or do you have a better idea?"

"Uhh," Kisha stammered surprised, thinking about how to answer this question. It wasn't embarrassing or unpleasant, but it came so suddenly that it took her a second to react. "Uhh- not really, I mean, no one ever asked me before, I mean, I already had a lot of friends, male friends, but never something like a real relationship."
Kisha had gazed out of the window during her narration and only now saw Anza's blushed face. She looked at her puzzled, then her face twisted and shortly thereafter she burst out in laughter. It wasn't a mocking laugh, it was a genuine laugh filled with joy.

"You're really adorable Anza, We definitely have to do something together after all this here is over, okay?" she said after recovering from the laughter and wiping a tear of joy off her face.Still with a joyful and well-intentioned smile on her face, she held out her fist, her pinkie finger outstretched, "Promise?"

There was a crackling sound from the Bullhead's speaker as it started up, followed by the pilot's voice as he told them that they arrived. Were the 20 minutes over already? Damn, time was racing...

The Bullhead landed on a green space, a little further away from the forest where they should carry out their mission. "Looks like we're here," Kisha said, getting up from her seat, "let's get to work then."

A thin grin appeared on Dawn's face at Smokey's reaction. She found the whole situation very amusing, but it bothered her that Smokey hadn't answered her question. She wanted to know how he had built it and not who.

As much as it bothered her, she let the subject go. There were plenty of opportunities to look at the weapon later  She leaned back and turned her gaze to the dummies. "But don't forget to consider the shape in the installations, or do you want to carry this thing with you in the hand all the time?" she asked, then added, "And perhaps you should also consider a possible Dust-Incorporate. Hm, but who am I to tell you how to make his equipment?"

"Ooooooohhhhhh," Kisha replied, "Yes, that happens from time to time, you just have to know how to deal with it." She shrugs her shoulders as if that was the most normal thing in the world and continued, "I do store my stuff in the school kitchen. Well, you only try to steal something from me once. Equipment was a different matter, but it worked out at the end of the day. To each his own I guess."

While talking and after she stopped, she watched as Calem 'rushed' back and forth to the boat to carry everything onto it. Most likely his semblance, quite impressive, but without a doubt would have hers been more practical. A portal here and there and everything would be in its right place, however, before she could offer her help, he already loaded everything onto the boat and they were almost ready to go.
"Ai Ai Captain, the crew is here and ready to go," she joked as she jumped into the boat after him. The wavering of Calem made her landing look a little less elegant than she had planned, but she was able to catch herself again after wobbling around a few seconds and stood straight. Embarrassed by her little fidgeting dance, she scratched the back of her head, laughing delighted, as if she was making fun of herself.

"Believe me or not, but I'm a fighting machine! The Grimm start to shiver when they see me!" she said, continuing to laugh, "Alright, jokes side, but I'm really a good fighter, though I'm more useful as a backing person, you know? But don't underestimate me in a one on one. Anyway, with a team of mainly Scrappers, this is a rather minor problem. Oh yes, by the way, I'm from Team INKK, but maybe the name doesn't say much to you, heh~ Let me put it this way, we have a reputation for not being able to keep our team composition. Oh-Uh- I mean, that's not bad, our newest member is unbelievably nice and nothing bad happened with our last one, she just had to return to her homeland, you know, don't worry, I- Uh- Tell me a little bit about your team!"

'Smooth Kisha, really smooth...' She was talking faster and faster towards the end, to the point where she fused the words together to get through the sentence quicker, she didn't even know if Calem was able to understand what she said.

In order to avoid a most likely awkward silence between the two, she turned around with the words "Okay, enough of that, out to the sea! Wuuh!" and turned to the mast to which the sail was tied. And there it already began. She was reluctant to admit that she didn't have the slightest idea what she was doing when she jumped on the boat. She had never done such a thing! Never! She continued to stare at the mast and then started to release the sail from the ropes. How hard could that be?

The answer came as soon as the sail was released and hung flat to the ground. "Uuhhhhh," she stammered as she looked to the side, looking for anything that could help her. It ended with her trying to hold up the sail, hoping something would happen. Somehow. Nothing happened. With a embarrassed laughter, she turned her head to Calem, still holding up the sail. "Uhm, Captain? Help?"

Kisha nodded steadily as Jima answered her questions successively, followed by an "Mh-hm, got it."

There were other, countless questions whizzing around in her head, everything about this place and the people she was with, but those had to wait until later. She turned to the growl with a determined grin and immediately was disappointed. Of course, there wouldn't be a huge Deathstalker right away, but creeps? Creeps!?

"Keep your five points," she said to Smokey with a slight grin but kept her eyes on the creeps as she quickly took an arrow out her quiver and tension it into her bow, firing it immediately. The first arrow raced forward, right in the direction of the 'leading' creep. Not even a second later and the next arrow shot forward, this one targeted at one of the crepps further away. After the two arrows were fired she lowered her bow and took a few steps back,
"Welp, that should be two points for me," she said with a confident smile and put her hand on her hip. "Even though creeps are not even worth a point, Beowolves maybe, but creeps? You know what, make one point out of it, I'll give a Creep a maximum of 0.5 "

Attack Log:

-Shooting at two creeps


Aura: 100%
Fire Arrows: 8/8
Ice Arrows: 8/8
Energy arrows: 8/8
Normal Arrows: 6/8
Signal arrows: 3/3
Semblance: 100%
Smoke grenades: 3/3
Hydrogen grenades: 3

Seemingly unimpressed by the dead of the two pack members, the remaining two beowolves moved closer to Smokey, teeth bared and ready to rush at him. Their complete attention was on the young Huntsmen-in-training and not a second later, the first charged forward in an obvious attempt to attack him with his claws. Shortly thereafter, the second jumped forward, with a similar scratch attack targeted a little higher up on face lever.

Mikado paid no attention to his teammates, knowing that he was more than capable of taking care of the Grimm, instead, he just stood there, looking gravely at the two creatures in the sky. The Nevermore was already close behind the, compared to him, much smaller dragon and caught up more with every second, there wasn't more left until he would be able to grab him. Time to act. Another whistle echoed through the air, but this one differed from its predecessor in that it consisted of three separate whistles, the first two short and the third slightly longer. For outsiders, these seemingly random whistles could mean anything, but for Kiro it was a clear command: Dive, and that was exactly what he did. The dragon leaping down, no sign of stopping as he approached the ground faster and faster, with the Nevermore in tow. And he wouldn't stop, that is unless Mikado tells him to. That had to be perfectly timed.

The command came only when both creatures were shortly away from hitting the ground. Kiro's wings unfolded and stretched out on both sides as he slid past the dusty floor, whereas the black avian behind him crashed against it with full force. Size could only bring one so far without agility. The impact wasn't enough to kill the bird, but with him on the ground and briefly motionless, the huge storm of fire could be unleashed upon him until the black poultry completely evaporated.

Attack Log:

(Kiro) - burning the Nevermore to crisp - 35% dust for ~25% damage

Combat Stats:

Aura: 85%

Dawn supported her head with her hand as she watched Smokeys experiment. Why he did what he did was quite comprehensibly, as well as the way he did it, but already after the second target, her attention was drawn to the key element of the whole thing. The power and impact behind the revolver were amazing and would undoubtedly do a lot of harm in the right hands. From what she saw, these were more than just the right hands. The more so if one considers his semblance. With the force of the weapon came the recoil, but Smokey seemed to care relatively little about that, maybe a kind of shock absorbers or strong cushioning in general.

With a grin, Dawn crossed her arms and leaned forward as she started talking, not screaming, but loud enough for Smokey to hear from the distance. "Hey, handsome, impressive firepower you've got. Care to tell me how you've created this beauty?"

"Nahh, keep it. I'm not really hungry right now" She replied. It wasn’t as if she was not hungry, but after a full day of standing and spending her time in the academy's kitchen, just to finish the three-story tall cake, including garnishing it with all the trimmings, she could no longer see any food. Whether pastry or not. On the other hand, during the baking, she has eaten roughly half of the ingredients, a bad habit that she regrets every day anew, especially when it comes to raw dough. Maybe it would be a good idea to avoid the kitchen from time to time, after all, she stood there almost every day and made all kinds of god-like pastry.

Kisha paused for a moment as she repeated the word in her thoughts, "Say," she started out of the blue and moved a bit closer to Calen, "Can it be that you are often in the kitchen?"

She didn’t really wait for an answer and instead started answering his last question, "Oh, school here school there. Just pay attention in class and look at your notes in the last hour before the exam. That at least works for me." She said with a grin. "You remember the important things naturally and you probably won’t need the rest of the stuff ever again."

After Kisha finished, she first looked at the rod and bait, then at Calem, then at the water, befor starring back at Calem again.

"OHMYGAWD!" Kisha said loudly and jumped up "I have an idea!" She walkes to the beginning of the jetty, where a few small, wooden boats were docked. All alone. Nobody used them. Nobody needed them. Until now.

She quickly started to loose the rope that was tied to one of the post so that the boats wouldn’t swim away, and then looked
back at Calem. "What are you waiting for, you never catch something bis like this, let's expand our reach! Come on, or would you like me to call you Mood Killer from now on? Come on now!" she called to him as she jumped excitedly from side to side, still with the rope in her hands.

Mikado stared at the path in front of him for a while longer. They did what they were supposed to do, the villagers were save and evacuated and the reported part of the Horde was taken down. Judging by what was next to come, the obvious smarter idea was to leave, but still, he would have liked to fight a bit more. Sure, the Deathstalker had already been a challenge in itself, for which it nedded the full strenght and concentration of the two students, plus the help of Mikados Semblance. But they did it. They did it without even suffering the loss of Aura. Even if Mikado had to work together with Smokey to achieve that. Even now, he wished to have any other student of Beacon by his side, but otherwise was he grateful for the bundle of firepower assigned to him.

He turned around, turned his back to the path and its Grimm which loudly announced there soon arrival, and followed Siu to the opposite path. During the turn Mikado brought his thumb and index finger to his mouth whistled through it. The whistle made Kiro look up. The first movement the dragon has made since they defeated the deathstalker. The aura dragon stood up silently and walked to his owner, still in its grown form. After all, they were still on the open field. And as if this had been the Secret Signal, a black avian shot out of the shadows of the mountains and circled above them.

Mikado didn't say anything. He just stared at the giant bird. The bird. One bird. Singular. Well, he shouldn’t complain, this eventually made the situation easier. This looked like a fight from which they could not leave so easily. And it was to late to try, as the Nevermore had already seen them and spread his wings to unleash the rain of razor sharp feathers upon them. Mikado was able to dodge the incoming attack, but after his dodge roll to the side, he felt a stinging pain in his leg. He looked up, his eyes falling on Kiro, who with his size and lack of reaction didn't has the time to escape the attack. Despite the pain in his leg, which is now slowly fading away, Mikado grabbed his Bo from the holster and grasped the staff with both hands.

In the turmoil of the feather rain, the four Beowolves managed to snuck into the battle and were now creeping slowly towards them from different angles, all while the screaming Nevermore above their heads prepared its next attack. Great, just great.

This shouldn’t be a problem for a trained huntress, but as long as he had enough strength to stand on his feet, he also had enough strength to kill the Grimm. He looked to his side, right at Smokey, "You think you can handle the wolves yourself?" he teased him, already knowing the answer.

With the Nevermore ready to attack again every second, Mikado didn't waste any time. As before, he attracted Kiro's attention with a quick but clear whistle and then motioned him to the sky with a quick gesture. There wasn’t much he could do against the giant bird. Unless the Nevermore comes down close enough for him to ram his kusarigama into its flesh, he had no choice but to send Kiro up there.

Mikado watched the dragon, considering any tactics that might help him now. In a 1v1 between the two, it could get pretty bad fast and end against his favor. He glanced at the Nevermore and then Kiro, who was only about half the size of the beast, then looked back at the Nevermore.

"Kiro, taunt! Make him follow you!" he finally called to him. This plan would most likely go wrong, but as long as there was a chance of success, you had to take it.

Attack Log:

(Kiro) - Taunting the Nevermore

Combat Stats:

Aura: 85%
Kiro's Health: 15%
Kiro's Dustbreath (Fire): 100%
Pock: 14/14


  • Mid-sized Nevermore: x1
  • Beowolves: x4

Grimm's battle log:

Mid-sized Nevermore: Feather rain - 5% at everyone

Okay, so it wasn't the last one. Weird.
Mikado would like nothing more than to go back to his dorm and change out of the wet clothes, but the mission's description was pretty clear about its one request. Eliminate the horde if possible.
They could certainly take down the Grimm, but not without taking quite some damage themselves.
"Yeah, let's go." he finally said. He didn't like the idea of staying nor leaving, but following the word of a trained huntress was certainly not wrong.

Next Targets: (!Delayed!-Arriving next post)

Kisha gave Kin another grin and then let go of him. He would have to get used to it quickly because from that day on they shared the same room, and her hyperactivity will not diminish over time.

Just as she was back to her bed, Kin's question came. Such introductory rounds were a good idea to get to know each other better, but oh boy he made a mistake to ask her first. Excited, Kisha clapped her hands together in front of her.

"Uhh, where do I start? Maybe- No, or how about - not either, then rather- no... Okay, 087. The name is Kisha Miles, remember it well then from now on you won't get rid of me! Let me answer your questions with my questions Believe me or not but my favorite color is black and black is a color, no matter what you say. The one and truly greatest weapon here is Cocoa-" Kisha reached to her belt where the holster for her dagger was normally, but then remembered that she left her weapon in the locker "A dagger-sword-bow mix of which you can't avert your eyes. And answer numero three is a fox. Seriously, have you looked at these things? They are sooooo fluffy!"

She stopped for a second, "Oh- Ooohhhh! I almost forget!" More in a stumble than anything she reached over her bed to the bag that rested on the windowsill. Quickly the bag was open and Kisha rummaged through its contents, having about 3/4 of her arm in the bag. And the bag wasn't bigger than a pillow. "Ah-ha!" She pulled out a rectangular paper box and held it out to Kin "Exxxxxtra for you, I hope you like chocolate ~"

With these words she opened the lid of the box and a muffin was revealed, but it wasn't just some muffin. It had a small blue paper-body around it which covered up about half of it, but what was visible on the surface was more than enough to convince. Over the brown chocolate dough that made up the muffins framework, was a layer of melted caramel, this was then again garnished with white chocolate, this causing a gradient on the muffin.

On top of the muffin was a quill and next to it an inkwell made out of sugar. However, the naked eye could not see the strawberry syrup inside the chocolaty deity. "Don't enjoy it too much, otherwise the other two will be jealous." She leaned towards Kin a little closer and whispered "They only got chocolates."

Kisha fell back on the bed after she handed the box over to Kin "And there's nothing in the world that I wouldn't do for pistachios to answer your last question"
