Songs of Peril [Closed]
« on: August 12, 2017, 11:08:27 PM »
Cami Unis, a traveling musician is in need of an escort to the village of Vona. Upon arriving to Vona, see what can be done to help with the strange increase in Grimm activity in the surrounding area of the village. Miss Unis is incapable of producing an aura so take measures to protect her accordingly.
Miss Unis is considered an important individual due to her skill with her acoustic guitar, she plays music for disheartened souls giving them hope. It was once said she was able to save her home village by playing for wounded soldiers giving them the strength to continue fighting. Others also believe that by dispelling negative emotion and spreading hope, groups of people who hear her music are able to ward away Grimm, though whether this is true of not has not been proven. Either way Miss Unis is something of a rising star to the villages that she has played for and are always glad to hear her play.

Justice Montenegro
Camelia Sol
Calen Shrike
Rory Vogel

Cami is a girl of fair complexion with naturally blonde hair in a ponytail extending down her shoulders. She wears an ordinary pair of jeans and shirt with a brown travel jacket. On her back she sports a small pack of supplies and a guitar case. Her expression is in a natural smile to a curve on her lips as she hums a tune to herself. She casually sits on the edge of the airship with her feet dangling back and forth as she waits for her requested escort to arrive.

Playing with the straps of his heavily laden pack Calen was slightly nervous as he approached the airship platform, this would be his first mission since his injuries during the Switcheroo sparing matches. Even with aura assisted healing the broken ribs and his left arm took weeks to heal, in fact his wrists still cracked whenever he rotated them and everything gave off a dull ache. Still with the two other active members of ASTC off doing something else Calen thought he would use the opportunity to take a mission on his own, or with four strangers as the case maybe, to get back in the swing of things. Not allowed to partake in physical training again until he fully recovered Calen had gotten well ahead on his school work, cooking responsibilities as well as even finally making it down to the dance studio for a few performances. Such caught up on his various burdens Calen was looking forward to getting out of the city again and making some money at the same time.

Managing to at least fake a confident smile Calen made his way to the airship Cami Unis, himself and the rest of the bodyguard team would be travelling in. Seeing his client sitting in wait Calen waved and dashed over with his semblance.  'Greetings Miss Unis, my name is Calen Shrike. I'm going to be one of those tasked with making sure we get from village to village as quickly and as safely as possible.' Calen introduced himself politely and calmly, even giving a slight bow before looking over the air ship they where travelling in. Beacon had given him basic mechanical knowledge of their operation and he had read pretty widely on the subject so he should have a basic idea of it's capabilities.
No criticism is too harsh so hit me with your best shot.

Cami Unis...

Rory knew the name, and vaguely remembered the soft, kind smile on her face. What he remembered most was the music... the way it seemed to permeate him, flitting across every nerve and every thought he contained, calming and soothing... healing, almost. She had, in fact, visited his hometown just a year before he'd set out for Vale, and her arrival during those troubled days had been like a star shining in the darkness. Some part of him, no matter how irrational it may seem, couldn't help but believe that she had lent him the strength to flee his abusive home, to travel on his own to an unfamiliar city with barely anything to his name and somehow, somehow, to believe that he could hang on, each and every day... hang on to see a better tomorrow.

Maybe her music really was as charmed and magical as people said, or maybe the thought itself had lent him strength. Either way, in Rory's mind this wasn't just some mission -- it was the repayment of a debt, even if only in part. With that in mind he hopped off the city bus, then spotted her in the distance waiting by an airship with a handful of others. Somehow, even though she was too far away to rightly make out her appearance, he knew it was her. He just... felt it, crazy as that seemed. For a moment the shield fighter was transfixed, frozen in the moment and the realization that he was not only about to meet but be called on to protect someone who'd been a beacon of hope for him. It was jarring... and it was humbling.

While another student used what Rory guessed to be his Semblance to zip over to miss Unis, Rory hefted his backpack onto his shoulders and trotted over the old fashioned way. With every step he debated with himself over how to express his gratitude, how to put into words what she'd done for him those years ago... but even though he wasn't exactly rushing over, when he finally got to the airship's landing pad he still had nothing. He could feel himself choking on a sudden wave of anxiety. Was he even the right person for this? Did he deserve to be anywhere near this woman? A deep breath and a mental slap across the face helped restore focus, if only just barely. He was here. He was doing this.

And he'd protect Cami Unis with his life.

"Miss -- miss Unis? I'm, uh, Rory Vogel." He hoped desperately that he didn't seem as flustered and shaken as he felt as he extended a hand to her. "Part of your protection detail, ma'am." He paused, mustering the only words that came to mind. "Please allow me... to be your shield."

For the life of him, Justice could not understand why people adored the acoustic guitar so much. His preference would always be the soft, delicate sounds of the violin. Alas, the simpletons in these villages would have no taste for the fine arts, so acoustic guitar it is. Justice let out a soft sigh in resignation, the only display of emotion in his usual stone-faced demeanor. He carefully paced his way to the departure point, wanting to arrive at least one minute and thirty-seven seconds before the scheduled departure time. To allow him the opportunity to open his locker, retrieve his belongings, and board the aircraft with a ten-second buffer in between for any unforeseen events.

As the thought crossed his mind, he turned the corner to the airship dock. He pulled out his scroll and typed in a few numbers as he walked. Taking the stairs up to the platform, he pulled out his pocket watch to be able to take the precise amount of time between when he called it and when it arrived. As it turns out, the time it takes for the lockers to arrive from the school to this airship dock is approximately 24 seconds.

As Justice retrieved the supplies he stored in there earlier, he quickly activated his semblance to get an idea of the group he was about to face. And one person stood out to him immensely. A mix of fear, anxiety, joy, and awe. Starstruck. I think this day will be an interesting one. Justice thought, breathing in the emotion and using the nervous energy to clear his mind. He grabbed his violin case and walking stick before moving over to the airship.

"Calm yourself, boy. You are simply embarrassing yourself." he said, talking in the vague direction of Rory as he looked across the airship. "If we are at the stage of doing proper introductions, my name is Justice Montenegro. I am here to provide security detail and perform a scientific analysis on the effects of your work and how it affects grimm behavior." he said, finally looking the singer in the eye.

Shit, fuck, shit, crap, dammit, shit. This was not good. Why in the world did her alarm clock choose this very day to break down? Now here she was, running to the landing pads after taking Orion, Unity and her armor from her locker, putting the latter on as quickly as she could before picking up what was left and sheathing them on the run.

Dammit.

As she finally rounded the corner, she noticed that everyone else seemed to be already present, much to her non-surprise. Arriving besides them, she leaned forward to breathe her soul back in, not forgetting to vaguely wave hello to everyone while doing so.

Yeah, this was off to a great start.

Cami was taken back and let out a little "wow!" as Calen's semblance initially took her by surprise. Recovering from the brief shock she realized she was being greeted by one of her escorts "Oh hi Calen!" she said with a smile, "It's a pleasure to have you!So I know my request was a little vague but I'll explain more when the whole team gets here but since your the first one here I'll let you know something about my request, there's gonna be one more Huntress that's gonna be joining us and we're gonna meet up with her when we get to Vona, and just a word of warning" she said with the back of her hand against her lips as if she was nearby telling a secret "She's not that great with strangers"


"Miss -- miss Unis? I'm, uh, Rory Vogel." He hoped desperately that he didn't seem as flustered and shaken as he felt as he extended a hand to her.
A voice caught her attention as she looked to the newcomer.

Quote
"Part of your protection detail, ma'am." He paused, mustering the only words that came to mind. "Please allow me... to be your shield."
'A weird comment' she thought 'I wonder if he's always like this or if he knows me from somewhere' either way "Hello Rory! and please you can drop the formalities, just call me Cami! We're gonna be traveling together for a while after all might as well get comfortable around each other!" She said taking his hand and hoping he'd take the hint to relax whatever was making him nervous. Cami suddenly felt she should take her own advice as a third voice spoke up next to Rory and was very much intimidated by the very pale man who had started talking.


"Calm yourself, boy. You are simply embarrassing yourself." he said, talking in the vague direction of Rory as he looked across the airship. "If we are at the stage of doing proper introductions, my name is Justice Montenegro. I am here to provide security detail and perform a scientific analysis on the effects of your work and how it affects grimm behavior." he said, finally looking the singer in the eye.
'Man I there's gotta at least be one weirdo' she thought. Is it the way he addressed Rory? the way he talked like he knew everything? or maybe his non-huntsman like appearance that seemed to throw her off? "H-hello Justice, I can try to answer any questions you have but honestly I don't know very well myself, but my friend who we're suppose to meet at Vona might be able to answer them for you." She offered hoping to give the man something of interest and his gaze away from her.

Some time had passed and the four continued to wait for their fifth

'Hm...I hope this Camelia actually shows up soon, at this rate we're gonna miss the meet up time with her at Vona...oh she's gonna give me an earful when I finally see her again' As she finished her thought a girl with a brown ponytail and average height came running in their direction, very clearly the one they were waiting for. Cami watched as her last escort was clearly winded from running as she huffed and puffed with her hands on her knees and waved in everyone's general direction in a form of her greeting. "Ha..ha..err running late are we? Camelia right? hop on we can talk on the way there!" Cami said glad to finally have her escort full and finally on the move, as the airship with all of it's passengers aboard started, took off and started to make it's way to its destination.

The familiar and the mechanical did wonders for Calen's nerves and by the time they where in the air he was back to his arrogant self, or had at least fixed the mask. Being more focused on the air craft Calen only really had a chance to check out those he would be fighting beside once they had settled in the airship. The girl, Camelia, had a serious case of bed hair making her stand out substantially from the other two well dressed hunters-in-training. Once the airship had stabilised Calen rummaged through his pack and retrieved a brush then got up and passed it to Camelia.

It may seem petty but being vertically higher than those you are talking to does wonders for ones confidence and it allows for a slightly dismissive expression which could just be the angle but definitely isn't. 'I think we've met.' Calen began as he turned to Rory keeping his tone as innocent as possible. 'You were giving out food after that terrorist attack not that long ago right? Calen had been actively trying to avoid evidence of the attacks beyond his obligations as seeing so many injured Faunus brought back unpleasant memories but it wasn't exactly something you could ignore.

The older one Calen wasn't so sure about, other than almost looking like his mirror image Calen found very little to draw out of the older student. Still never one to let something as small as being over his head to slow him down Calen extended his hand to shake before remarking with a smile. 'Nice suit, Master Justice.' All throughout his stupid alpha routine Calen always kept his eyes scanning the reactions of the hunters-in-training as well as Cami as gauging their reactions was the entire point of this little stunt.

"Hello Rory! and please you can drop the formalities, just call me Cami! We're gonna be traveling together for a while after all might as well get comfortable around each other!"

What she said was certainly true, and the reality of it hit him as he tried to figure out how to respond. Yes, he felt a rather strong obligation to her for personal reasons, but she was still just a person. That, and he didn't want to make her uncomfortable with any sort of hero worship. Rory was just opening his mouth to respond when --

"Calm yourself, boy. You are simply embarrassing yourself."

An unfamiliar voice chastising him, and not in a friendly sort of way either. The shield fighter stiffened reflexively at the speaker's dismissive words and turned to shoot him a look, though said nothing. So this was Justice, then? He'd heard a bit about this guy in passing -- a third year student originally from Atlas, always in a suit and frequently picking people apart with barbed words. It seemed the rumors were true, then. Rather than respond Rory just let the older student talk, deciding not to let himself be baited into an argument. They would be around one another quite a bit for this mission... if Rory let himself be rattled now it would only make things harder later.



After pleasant greetings from Cami -- and a fair bit of waiting for the last member of their group to arrive -- the four students and their charge were airborne. Rory had opted for a corner seat, keeping off to the side and mostly to himself while he double checked his backpack and supplies. Part of him still couldn't believe he'd managed to get on this mission, to be part of Cami Unis' travels, be some small part of the good she did. Another part of his mind was already factoring variables; he hadn't known that they'd be meeting up with a Huntress when they landed, for one thing, and he wasn't sure about the tactics and abilities of his temporary teammates either. Plus, there was still the whole 'investigate Grimm activity' aspect to consider.

It was a lot to think about.

'I think we've met.' Rory looked up as Calen addressed him. 'You were giving out food after that terrorist attack not that long ago right?

"That was me, yeah." He had to look twice to make sure of whom he was addressing, such were the similarities between Calen and Justice. Two tall, lanky guys in formal suits... well, if needed to Calen and Justice could certainly pull off the look of professional attendants for Cami, though Rory guessed that might not really be her way of doing things. Still, between the two of them it was Calen who unsettled Rory the most. He wasn't really sure what it was, but the gaunt-looking student's paleness and thinness seemed almost... unnatural. Rory did his best not to stare. "I work at the 'Fabled Goods' bakery, on the edge of the commercial district. The boss is big on humanitarian causes."

'Speaking of the bakery...' Rory thought to himself, reaching into his pack and rummaging for a moment. "He also lets me experiment in the kitchen," Pulling out a small waterproof bag, Rory reached in and drew out one of his signature pastries: a soft pretzel twist with a bit of sweet muffin batter and a generous helping of juniper berries. He offered one to Calen, then to Cami and the others. At least one member of their group probably hadn't had any breakfast, he guessed, and the baked goods seemed as good an ice breaker as anything. "I'm still working on these -- I call them Juniper Branches. Let me know what you think."

Justice would remain calm as they waited for the fifth person. His face was more expressive than usual, with a small, knowing smile and occasional glances at Rory. His words had precisely the intended effect, and it got exactly the reaction he was hoping for. And he even assisted the boy, distracting the girl from the words he was embarrassing himself with just a few seconds earlier. He hoped the boy would later appreciate his efforts, although his intentions were never made clear to the inattentive.

Once they were on the ship, Justice would find himself a seat on the side, with an adequate view of the passengers. Specifically, he wanted a good look at their faces. Firstly, the late girl. She has been quiet for most of the trip. He could sense a bit of panic and embarrassment on her when she first came to the group. The student body of this school really could stand to be more punctual.

There was the singer. A scan of her emotions gave him nothing interesting to work with. As it turns out, she may be as vapid and boring as her music is. A pity, she could have been entertaining.

There was the one that looked similar to him. His name was Caleb, or something along those lines. 'I will remember it if he becomes relevant.' he thought, looking at his attire. A quick complement from him shows that they were both thinking similarly. "It is hard to find people who take the time for the proper attire." he said, giving a small complement to the boy.

And then, there was the first boy. The embarrassed one. His name was Rory. Judging from his emotional state as they were boarding, Rory is going to be a fun one to play with. He seems to have reverence toward the singer. A pity. Energy such as that could be better spent elsewhere. Alas, energy such as that comes from a place deep within. And there was a good chance that he could have a lot more going on in his head than meets the-

A brief mentioning of experiments brought Justice out of his train of thought, his mood souring when he discovers that it is about pastries. Justice did not have much of a sweet tooth. The only dessert he went out of his way to get was Atlesian trench cake, but it was rude not to take food offered to you in such a manner. So, he took one of the pastries and ate it carefully, wiping any crumbs away from his mouth with a white handkerchief.

Camelia followed everybody else into the airship, still flustered (and out of breath) by her lateness. She therefore remained silent, the presentations having been done by Cami and whatnot.

Once inside, she sat as well as she could - this thing really wasn't designed for standard seats - and started calming down both her breathing and mind. As she did, one of the thin and pale ones - she realised only her presentation had been done after she'd arrived, she knew nothing about the others - handed her a hairbrush. Mouthing a near silent "Thank yoouu!" with a smile, she gladly accepted the loan, undoing her ponytail and combing her hair, something she'd had to skip to get here on time - or as close to it as possible.

As she put her hair back into a more presentable state, Camelia listened and watched the others talk, attempting to discern any valuable (or not) information from words, body language, facial expressions, anything she could get her senses on. She smiled in a 'kinda busy right now, but maybe after' way as the boy with glasses handed out pastries.

Okay, no, it was a 'most definitely yes afterwards' with the smell wafting from those puppies.

"So thank you all for accepting my request!" Cami addressed to everyone and munching on a pastry."To explain a few details about our trip, I was requested by the village master of Vona to play for them. Now If it was just that It wouldn't be a problem, but it turns out there are actually two other neighboring villages called Navo and Anov, yeah it's easy to mix up right?. Apparently the three villages used to be at peace with each other but something happened between them and now they're not. Now my request from Vona is just to play for them, but my request to you guys is to help me get to the other two villages and do the same!" she said with a hopeful smile. "And I mentioned this before but we're also gonna meet up with a friend of mine when we get to Vona, her name's Gaud Rain and she can be a bit...stubborn but she's nice I promise!"

Graciously accepting the pastry Calen took it wrapped in a bit of cloth a placed it carefully in his pack. 'For later.' Calen explained smiling although this time the expression never touched his eyes as his mind was spinning in ways to dump the pastry. Probably dump it off went we get it to town. Calen thought to himself as he took his seat and listened halfheartedly to Cami's explanation. Warring villages was not an uncommon in Remnant but it could complicate the mission if these Vonaians don't want her to go or if Navo/Anov see her as serving Vona. Fighting people wasn't exactly something there was a lack of at Beacon, particularly with Calen's habit of pissing people off, but it wasn't something he was looking forward to with people he didn't know how far they would go. Still by the sounds any trouble would be after the first show, unless they got swatted out the sky. Grimacing and rubbing his neck at the memory of being swatted out of the sky himself it wasn't an experience he was in a hurry to repeat.

Nodding when Cami stopped talking Calen let the conversation lull for a bit in case anyone had any questions before asking a few questions of Rory. 'So what do you put in your 'Juniper Branches,' other than the juniper berries I suppose but is there anything added to the batter?'

Rory listened attentively to Cami's explanation of their mission. Villages in conflict with one another... such a thing certainly wasn't unheard of, but they had to know that was likely to draw in Grimm. Honestly, on the surface that seemed a likely explanation for the Grimm activity they'd been asked to investigate. Still, the mission profile wouldn't have called it 'strange' if there was such an obvious explanation... would it? What's more, it troubled him a bit that Cami was willfully inserting herself into a known area of conflict; yes, one could describe her as a "musical peacekeeper" if one were feeling particularly fanciful, but to deliberately visit two villages that were at odds with each other would, if nothing else, make their situation unpredictable.

He was just about to ask for more info when Calen, somewhat out of the blue, asked about his recipe. "Uh... well, it's a mix of soft pretzel dough and a bit of muffin batter, actually." Rory responded, a bit caught off guard and not wanting to give away the whole recipe. He turned his attentions back to Cami. "Right, villages in conflict. Do we know why they have a problem with each other, exactly? If I'm not reading too much into this, it seems like you want to try and help resolve the situation with your visit. Anything you can tell us about Navo and Anov might just help."

Justice used the singer's little speech as an opportunity to get another feel for the emotional state of the airship. Once again, his attempts to find vast emotional depth in the singer have left him dissapointed. He quickly turned to the embarrassed boy from earlier. Apparently he was...apprehensive. About what, it was unclear. From the few words that made their way into his train of thought, their conversation was as bland as the pastry he just finished eating. He took a good few seconds to glare at him in an attempt to figure out what his issue with the situation was.

When that yielded few results, he took his attention and put it back to the task at hand. Namely, helping the singer mend the rift between these three neighboring villages. "You truly believe that you can cause three communities of people to suddenly give up their problems with one another and live in harmony...with the power of acoustic guitar? That seems...disgustingly optimistic." he said. As much as he wanted to believe that people would be better than this, it was distinctly possible that the exact kind of people who would laud over this random girl playing guitar are the same people to just drop long-held grudges. They may simply be too small-minded to be able to think that broadly as to why they are at odds.

Having finally put her hair back in order, Camelia attached it before thoroughly removing all traces of her own hair from the brush. While doing so, she looked and listened around, not finding much to interject upon. She made a mental note of the, uh, Juniper Branches pastries. Seemed kinda neat, but probably not world-shattering or anything.

She did, however, find a good thing to add to when the, well, older tall thin pale guy spoke - somewhat condescendingly, as well - to the singer-songwriter-musician person they were escorting. "Before saying things like 'disgustingly optimistic', could you perhaps check your tone at the door? Of course that won't sole everything, but since people seem to like her music pretty much everywhere, all three villages may also like it. It'd at least be one thing they could agree upon and would have in common, apart from the letters in their names, so it's a start. Besides, as -", she paused before turning to the boy with glasses "- uh, you mentioned, if we're to reconcile them, we're gonna need more info as to why there's such a big-time feud."
