"About three years of night classes at Signal Academy, staying up late to practice, and a lot of caffeine." Prism sheepishly admits, rubbing the back of her head. She couldn't lie - that move had taken forever to perfect. "Being my size means that every hit counts when it comes to melee combat, so I figured out early on that I needed all the damage bonuses I could get."

Twirling her staff once more, she brings it up next to her before turning to face Coconut. "In reality though, I'm expecting it'll be easier for you to get then me - I know you were enrolled at Signal full-time, so you probably at least have the discipline and techniques down." Prism explains, before leaning the blade of the glaive down towards Coco.  "Here's the first trick - concentrating your aura through your weapon. Your sword is an extension of you, like the glaive is an extension of me. It's as in-tune with your own body as your breathing, your heartbeat..." Prism closes her eyes then, a furrow to her brow demonstrating her concentration. "...which, by closing your eyes, and imaging it holds as much power as you do, lets you concentrate your aura along it's edge." True to her words, the blade of the glaive begins to shimmer a familiar white.

Coconut's stumble gave Prism enough time to whirl back around in response to face Coconut, raising the glaive once again with the blade held high. His stab to the abdomen was a smart move, Prism couldn't lie - but unfortunately for her, Prism was still faster, and she managed to sidestep the dodge with a flap of her wings, twirling on the ball of her foot with a boost from her wings to deliver another downwards slash towards Coconut's left.

Don't let him land a hit don't let him land a hit don'tlethimlandahit-

When you're that close to your opponent, there's not really any room to dodge. Jima doesn't have much room to maneuver, but that doesn't mean there aren't options. As he moves to block the shot from her cannon, Jima can see him pulling that right arm around, so she immediately throws herself backwards - rolling head over heels in order to avoid the inevitable canon shot. She can hear it sail overhead through the roll, returning Goliath to it's standby mode and tucking it up against her stomach in order to take it with her. Halfway across the room, the hook detaches from the wall and starts to zip back into the handle from the mace, and as she successfully comes back up on her feet.

The klink-klink of the grappling hook fully retracting is drowned out by the fact she immediately pumps out two more close-range shotgun shots. With the fact she and Mogan are meters apart, they should land easily, and at the very least, force him to start moving again.

Albrecht scoffs at what Smokey said, almost amused at the short man's explanations - they honestly make absolutely no sense at all. "Yes, but can you seriously expect that arm to hold out? What if it fails in the middle of battle? You'll be left hauling around a cripple, there's practically no point in him becoming a hunter in the first place, I'm amazed he managed to get into the school in the first place." It seems like he can't even halt his tirade now, the smug expression making itself at home on his face.

The absolute kicker was the confidence in his body language - there was no doubt in what he said, no obvious intention of malice. An air of superiority, sure - but he stood leaning on the weight rack to him, on hip cocked, unafraid (or oblivious) of the annoyance in Smokey's voice. Obviously, everything he spoke was the absolute truth - there was no possible doubt to his word.

There's a slightly pregnant pause as Prism processes Jocelyn's sudden change in tone, before the corner of her mouth quirks down. She fucked up, damnit. The bird shuffled slightly to the side, sitting up and turning to face Jocelyn, a weirdly neutral expression on her face. "I'm sorry." Were the first words out of her mouth, her tone going soft. "I'm... still getting used to someone being so complementary of me, and humor's a bit of a... defense mechanism? Your... well, kindness, is something I haven't had in a friend. In a long while. So sometimes I'm going to slip up and try to rebuke it like that automatically, but I should've put more thought into the words, so- yeah. I'm sorry."

There's another beat of silence as Prism stares at the grass, before that soft voice speaks up again, her tone lined by a certain amount of conviction. "But I need you to realize you aren't alone too, Jocelyn. I understand the aspect of wanting to sacrafice yourself for others, I..." There's a brief falter as Prism's voice falters, before it comes back, less sure than before. "I know that too well. But don't sacrifice yourself for people who don't need saving when you could help each other out of hell, instead."

Prism listens carefully as he explains, crossing her arms as she considers what Coconut said. It sounds like they're going to need to start from scratch, since he apparently didn't know anything else - but his enthusiasm gets the corner of her mouth to quirk up, getting a decisive nod out of her. Right then. "Golden attitude, Coco. Make sure that enthusiasm doesn't die, okay?"

At that, she stoops to put her coffee on the ground, before picking up her glaive and walking back towards the center of the room. "Right, okay. What I want to try to teach you is aura-enhanced blows, and then focusing aura through your weapon for a ranged attack." She explains, shifting into a common starting stance. "Not only will this allow you to hit significantly harder-" The blade of Hawk's Eye gains a white sheen along the cutting edge, apparently opting for a physical demonstration. "But also let you strike down anybody outside your range!" She proclaims, sweeping her blade downwards in a slash, sending a white-shaped crescent flying off the edge, hurtling across the arena, and cutting one of the targets cleanly in half across the diagonal.

Beacon Academy / A Warm Welcome [Closed]

It's an excellent day to meet somebody new, yet despite this, Prism can't help but harbor a tinge of nerves.

It's a beautiful day at Beacon, classes have just let out right before the weekend. The hummingbird faunus is still decked out in her school uniform, minus the the jacket used to conceal her wings, and the iridescent feathery limbs are easily visible in the afternoon sunlight, glinting in all their glory. The announcement of another recipient of the Royale Scholarship came as a shock to the woman, but hearing about how the student would also be attending Beacon Academy had revealed an opportunity to her - it'd thrown her back to her first few nervous days, when she'd just met her teammates for the first time. It'd been a nerve-wracking time, wondering if she'd get along with them or if she'd be a good leader, and even if those fears were assuaged now, she better than anybody understood the daunting challenge of attending a school that pumped out modern-day heroes.

So she'd volunteered to welcome the new student, and make those first moments a little less awkward. They'd definitely at least have the scholarship to bond over, so it was as good a starting point as any. The fact that the new arrival was from Atlas was slightly concerning - they typically didn't hold the best opinions about faunus up there - but forcing herself beyond any worry, Prism was ready to welcome the new student, and hopefully introduce them to everything Beacon had to offer.

That's why she's planted herself outside the front doors of the school, bouncing in her heels, bearing a sign that said "YU NANHAI" in all-caps. Combined with the occasional flap of her wings, she's a hard spectacle to miss, which is what she's counting on.

"Don't force small talk darling, we'll develop our relationships at our own rate." Azre says comfortingly, patting Ramalia on the arm as she prepared to drop, before reaching to his belt and pulling out a canister of bright red dust, snapping it into the neck of Saxobeat.  Erza ignores her brother's pleasantries with their teammate, loading a clip into her rifle in preparation for the drop off. "As long as your wolf can find us in this storm, that's fine by me. Good luck once we hit the ground, and be safe." As Ramalia launches herself off the dropoff, Azre turns to his sister and offers her a cheeky grin. Erza simply raises her eyebrow in return, before Azre takes a running start - and in the fashion of a true diva, launches himself out of the cargo bay with a front flip, performing for a nonexistent audience. Erza waits a beat more before sighing, and then following her brother off the edge with a simple run-and-leap combination.

400 meters of freefalling to land ass-deep in a thicket of Grimm. Erza barks off a confirmation to Ramalia, watching her fall a distance below, while Azre's grin just gets worringly bigger. Raising Saxobeat from his hip, an obnoxiously loud tone sounds out - and flames blast out of the bell of the saxophone, significantly slowing the the musicians descent to hit the ground without any apparent trouble. The note doesn't end however, and Azre begins to play concerningly fast melody befitting of their situation, toasting any Beowolves in their immediate vicinity to a crisp - but it's not enough to stem the tide, and even Azre needs to breath as the dust in the cartridge runs out, and he ejects it to load in a similar red one. The precious seconds he spends reloading is enough for an especially large Alpha Beowolf to creep up behind him, raising it's claws-

And the musician would've been reduced to shreds if it weren't for the timely arrival of his sister, driving her sword deep into it's black flesh as she lands on it's back, aided by gravity. The Beowolf makes a yipping sound as it's knocked flat under her weight, before disappearing in a puff of black smoke. Azre twists just enough to offer his sister a grin, which gets a glare in return, before turning to cover his back, slashing the throat of any Beowolf that dares to venture too close. She manages to spot Ramalia from where she stands, and nudges Azre in the ribs,  with her elbow, gesturing to their teammate before yelling outloud. "Back to back to back! Establish our ground, then fight through in the direction of the distress signal - Patchouli didn't jump with us, we can't afford to lose each other in this weather!" With that, she and Azre begin to work their way up to Ramalia, fighting nearly in-tandem.

Prism watches in amusement as Coconut practically inhales his food, taking another sip of her coffee before answering. "Well, a good place to start off would be letting me know the extent of your training involving aura so far, and if you can do anything particular already, like reduce oncoming damage." She explains, before gesturing towards the Beowolf targets at the end of the arena. "Based on that, I'm going to see what I can try to teach you - I'm pretty well versed with long-distance aura attacks, and using aura to enhance the strength of your blows. Given your fighting style, I feel like they'd be pretty useful tricks to know."

Prism blinked a couple times at the expression on Jocelyn's face - the resemblance between her and Setsuna was astounding sometimes, and she'd only known the guy for a few minutes. She listens carefully to Jocelyn's declarations, a happy grin on her face at her teammate's determination alongside a pretty blush to her cheeks. "You know, you're going to need to tone it down a bit, I'm going to pass away overdosing on your sweetness at this rate." Prism jokes. "But seriously, that's an amazing determination to have, and an amazing reason to become a huntress. You'll gonna save a lot of lives someday, not to mention the ones you're already helping."

Prism makes a faux-protesting sound, nudging Jocelyn with her wing again. "Hey, don't knock the energy drinks! I wouldn't be awake enough to actually talk to you half the time without them." She jokes, grinning at her in response - though Jocelyn's next words remove the smile, putting on a face of nostalgic contemplation. ]"And yeah, I wish it was - but that's part of why we're here. We're supposed to make the world a better place."

The touch on her arm makes Prism jump slightly though, turning to Jocelyn. "F-fair enough, I guess." She stutters slightly, giving Jocelyn another sweet grin before lying back onto the grass, still obviously unused to the affection. She stares back at the sky, trying to distract herself and to keep pink from blooming on her cheeks, but the gentle touch and sweet words make thoughts race. "You're going to make a girl or guy or whatever really happy someday, you know that?" She blurts, before biting her lip as she realizes what she just said.

The change in Albrecht's face is almost scary in how fast it morphs, going from perfectly friendly and amicable to as if somebody pissed in his cornflakes, then promptly dumped the bowl on his head. The expression of anger and disgust only lasts a moment though, and he (badly) tries to hide it under a cross look at both men. There's a couple awkward moments as he stands there, basically pouting, before his eyes dart to Serin's arm again - there might be a way to get back on their good side, or least Smokey's good side, if he plays his cards right.

He takes a moment to compose himself, the previous shit-eating grin taking it's place on his face, before he turns to Smokey. "Surely gentlemen, we can come to an agreement here. Smokey, surely, with your leader's... obvious disadvantage," He takes a moment to gesture to Serin's arm, before continuing. "It'd be much safer to have somebody who's not as reckless enough to lose a limb before even beginning here at Beacon to spot you, not to mention the obvious disadvantage of relying on a prosthetic, no matter how advanced." He sneers, looking on with an air of superiority about him. Obviously, his logic is flawless.

He's playing the defensive again, holding still and buckling down against her attacks. Those shields are effective at doing their job, but they can't block everything - and Prism's determined to prove that. He'll need to move against her eventually.

Keeping her wings extended in case she needed to bolt from a sudden lunge, Prism rotates on one foot, the staff of her blade perpendicular to body. A shot fires off, coming from the end of the staff, and she uses the recoil to complete the spin, bringing the blade around to launch off another blindingly-white crescent, horizontal to Rook this time. This technique is repeated three times, Prism practically spinning like a ballerina with each rotation, balanced by her wings - sending a barrage of bullets and aura-enhanced attacks at Rook in an attempt to overwhelm his defense.

Aura-Enhanced Sweeping Crescents (5% x 3)
Bodyshots (7% x 3)

Personality: Redefined negative traits to better reflect the way I've been playing her, talked about her semblance in response to her emotions

Aura and Semblance: talked about current capabilities with aura, stuck some limits on manifestation abilities (wind cap w/o extreme stress scenarios, can create small dust devils with large amounts of concentration) able to fling crescents off her blade/create aura-enhanced blows

Combat Behavior: Rewrote weaknesses to better reflect the way she's been played, deleted lists

Weapons: reworded stuff to be more clear. Hawk's Eye now has both semiautomatic and bolt-action capabilities
