Rust was fully intent to ignore the green haze and simply use his semblance to dispel it if it turned into a threat. That was until a dagger hit the ground nearby to him and Quisling revealed himself. "I don't like working with the kind of cunt who tries to kill his employees. Oddly enough until you threatened to kill Cordell I would have been on board with giving you the crown. too bad for you." Rust looked down at Cordell to check her condition. Doubt I'll get much help from her. Good. No one to get in the way. "You have one chance to get out of the way and target the kiddies instead before i tear your fucking heart out." As Rust spoke he was snarling and kept Onyx Ripper at full throttle.

Good everyone now has a different bag, so now these guys don't know who has the crown. wait whats this Red just threw at me with her bag. Before she could think about it, Akel and Infrared took a random bag that Solar mixed up. The gears in Solar's head turned as she gave the object in her hand a blank stare ....the detonator for the charges she used earlier...why did she give me this...she threw me her bag...she turned on the charges in her bag......So who has it!!??. She dared not set that off while she had no idea who was currently carrying a bag of bombs.
   Speaking of which, Solar donned her own backpack and found it to be considerably heavier then her previous once, in fact it was practically bulging from whatever was in it. Akel was the only one who loaded up treasure... she was gonna have a hard time fighting like this.

She suddenly noticed Infrared give her a hand signal, for the second time now was Solar bewildered by what Infrared was trying to tell her. .....She wants to throw...what? Solar wondered, she took in her situation. A bad guy on the ship with the two of them, and a shooter on a ship above them that was gonna keep taking potshots.
 
...how brave of her

Solar took cover from the sniper and left Infrared alone to hold out for as long as possible. An orange glow brightened up her arms. This should be enough... she thought and charged in Infrared's direction, weaponless.

The White Fang member stood unusually still as the group before him scrambled to get away, deathly still even. It wasn't entirely surprising that they would try to run, they were outclassed after all, but that was why they had Quisling stay by the entrance to prevent escape. No, none of them would be escaping the cavern unscathed. He allowed himself a small smirk at that thought, breaking from stillness in the smallest sense. It was a good plan, he'd have to give them that. Mixing up the bags ensured they would have to track down each one to be entirely sure and even then they could hide the true treasure somewhere as they ran. That was no matter, though, they would have the crown by the end of the day.

He forced himself to keep from widening his smirk as two of the group stayed behind, couldn't afford the movement now. This was surprising, this was interesting, but he kept himself still as Kol spoke into his ear, silent to all but the two of them. A fourth year and a freelancer, easy money.

The tension left his body as Infrared began to charge toward him and, after a quick glance toward the airship encircling overhead, activated the rockets on his wings.




Cade shot into the air, just barely above Infrared and locked his eyes on the charging Solar. In one swift motion, he pointed his sword toward the boy and pulled a trigger, firing out a spray of tiny spikes that embedded into the deck and bounced mostly harmlessly off of his aura.

Cade turned his back to the boy as soon as the spikes left the two small ports on either side of the sword and properly plunged his sword down toward Infrared's back just as the plethora of spikes exploded into blinding light and deafening pops behind him.



Above, in the air, Kol immediately looked away as soon as Cade had pointed his sword toward the freelancer boy, using the break in focus to strap the dust pack that lay against the other side of the bullhead onto his back. He would stay in the air, but it was better to have the option to fight on the ground than not. The boy wasn't dangerous but the girl presented at least some threat. A threat would be need to be neutralized.

He quickly ejected the magazine from his rifle, still well over half full, and exchanged it for another hidden from the battle, just behind the bullhead door labeled, "Blizzard".

When Infrared missed her charge she she ran straight past, not wanting to slow down one bit to get herself aimed at, not paying attention if Solar is getting her correctly and unknowingly escaping a plunge.
She gave a command trying to make her plan work. It had to work.
Check the bag! Then throw it left and off! That should convey it fully. As she gave this she turned and jumped off the starboard of Howling storm, facing away from the flash that presumably was set off by one of them.
When she reached the ground she used her semblance twice in quick succession to sneak her way to the port side of the ship waiting for the bag to drop down. She'd be lying if her foot doesn't hurt like stepping on a toy brick, but that's necessary lest she'd be intercepted trivially.
Trying to minimize the chance of being spotted as well as setting up an ambush she stuck near the surface of the ship. There are many things she need to be paying attention to now: searching for a viable cave ceiling, waiting for Solar and/or her bag, and trying to sneak up on the bird Faunus. There's something else, oh right the bag- she's leaning on it and she didn't even feel it. This means it's empty. it also means there's nothing she can use in it.

This should be a small breather if they lost her. She tries to think up something but all the things she already have to process prevents her from generating any new thoughts. For now she activates her dust in Action. A cold breeze tells her what she put in earlier which she've long forgotten by now.

As the cold breeze drifted over Infrared, a burst of hot air pushed through and coated the area for the briefest of moments. From far above the ship, Kol descended on the wings of a dust jump pack, periodically activating the dust to slow his descent. Once he was close enough to the ground, the dust cut off and he slammed into the rocky ground, a silver-white sword in one hand and a white pistol in the other.

His eyes locked onto Infrared's, not moving an inch as he deliberately removed the white fang styled mask from in front of his mouth. "A faunus from Atlas." He said in a rough voice as the mask dropped to the floor. "You must be mighty special, Infrared Ray." The grip on his sword tightened as he prepared for his opponent's semblance. "Atlas tends to make a fuss about missing students so I'm going to offer you one chance to stop fighting and I won't hurt you." His eyes glanced away from the girl to either side of her for just a moment. "And don't even think about running. I promise I'm faster."

White, Solar's vision went completely white as she rushed at Infrared. Her charge was hindered but not stopped, disoriented Solar blindly threw one of her charged fists in the direction she could hear the sound of something landing on the deck in front of her.
Check the bag! Then throw it left and off!
Solar had no time to figure out what exactly Infrared's plan was, so she thoughtlessly obeyed. Continuing her momentum, Solar slipped one arm out of her bag and with her other charged arm chucked it over the port side of the ship, where Infrared and her opponent stood.
Now it was just her and the bird faunus. Her arms were weakened sore as she waited for her strength to return, hoping he wouldn't attack. She looked at his weapon and considered what just happend.

With a shaky hand she put one hand up to her head and slid the eyepatch over her left eye. Grinning proud of herself, her other hand took out her weapon blade face down and leaned on it as she addressed her opponent. "Hey it's rude to pick a fight without even introducing yourself. Hi i'm Solar, and who are you? Why do you want the crown? And what did you mean not wanting to kill faunus? What does that matter to you?" she asked irritated most of all by the lack of answers then her life being threatened. Slowly her strength returned as she held her weapon in a proper stance, her desire to understand the situation taking precedence over her desire to fight.

A sudden sputtering cough at Rust's side followed his threats against Quisling; Cordell stirred, fitfully at first but with growing resolve. She even went so far as to bang her own unsteady fist against her chest in an effort to force clean air into her lungs. She didn't bother to look up at Rust as she spoke. "Ye *cough, wheeze* can put me down now, mate."

"My word." The traitor seemed genuinely surprised. "You shouldn't even be conscious right now, let alone able to move."

"I've had worse." It was partially a lie; Cordell wasn't exactly broadcasting it, but her body felt like it weighed a ton -- what's more, her right side was completely numb from hand to foot. She reached for her belt and drew one of her pistols, leveling it unsteadily with her left hand at the scowling rat Faunus before looking up at Rust. "Somethin' ain't right back there -- could feel it through me Semblance. I know ye wanna gut this bastard, believe me, but th' team's in trouble... an' right now you'd be a hellova lot more help than I would." She paused, struggling to her feet and breathing heavily from the effort. "But I ain't got th' right t' give ye orders, do I Rust? Consider yerself hired, then. Half me treasure share plus a thousand lien, cash," She glanced over at him. "T' save our team from th' Fang. Do we have an accord?"

"You talk too much, pirate." The haze around Quisling suddenly intensified, obscuring his form in a cloud of ill-hued green. He leapt back, putting the toxic fumes between them, and in the next moment a throwing knife came flying at Cordell out of the dark. She dodged to one side, narrowly avoiding a direct hit and causing the blade to scrape against her Aura-protected shoulder.

It was now up to Rust which battle he was going to fight...

As Akel reached the area she did one last check. Stopping short and quickly pulling the bag off of her shoulders. Her eyes went wide and her heart had definitely skipped a beat when she saw that her backpack was full of explosives. Not to mention that she was 100% sure that the detonator wasn't on her and wasn't in the bag from taking a quick look through them. Deciding to take the potential death bag in with her, she just needed to hope that they wouldn't be triggered.

Making her way to the Captain and was only able to see the knife leave the smoke and only scrape off of the captain. Taking a defensive stance in front the captain she could hear the footsteps of the rat easily and could keep track, but, entering the smoke was something she didn't want to risk. After all, she was assuming that the gas was some kind of poison, she didn't want to make mistakes and running into it was a sure way to mess up.

Taking the same defensive stance that she had taken upon the ship, she readied the rotatable gun on her weapon. Firing it off towards the area where she heard someone land inside the what she assumed to be poison.

"Rust, Are you going to help us or save yourself?" Akel kept glancing at the mercenary and the green smoke, cautious of what action he was going to take and who or whatever could appear from the smoke at a moments notice.

In response to Cordell's offer Rust's expression changed from a snarl to a smile. "Funny how things work out. I was planning to ask to work for you once this was over. Just be sure to live long enough to provide the payment."
"Rust, Are you going to help us or save yourself?"

"You'll figure it out soon enough.  Unsure of where quisling was and well aware turning to head back would lead to a throwing knife in the back Rust drew his hand back and threw it forward into the smoke sending a heavy gust of wind in the hopes of both dispersing and knocking quisling square on his arse before he turned to return to his allies.

Infrared stares at the presumed mercenary talking her into stopping. He knows my name. (Pre-)Atlas Officer confirmed? Well proceed as it were anyway. Trying to keep her composure and act as if her name hasn't been mentioned she counter-offers.

"Why don't you stop fighting instead," She softens her voice in fear of being heard, "There's more we can offer than they do no? Lien and dust, can't imagine them offering nearly close to what's worth here if they make the treasure cache such a big deal that they didn't give it up while being all compromising? They only skimmed over it when you're coming in, but really they just wanted to coax you out of the BIG profit we have on hand. Surely you won't care about what happens to us or the humans, but just think of the Lien. This is just business -- surely you'd rather be on the profitable side here, hm?" Making a few glaring assertions that would make people frown on second thoughts, but getting him to emotionally agree is the priority here.

The falling bag was semi-ignored by Infrared using her semblance to launch it straight up, making a small mmm as it made contact. But the sound the bag makes is distinctly different from the one she craves to hear so she just caught the bag after one flight of the it. Wearing it over her chest she puts Action back into its scabbard and backed away slowly with her hands raised and eyes looking around still for spots with somewhat loose rocks. "You get a share of the entire pile, plus a quarter of mine. Deal?"

(OOC: So, to keep everyone in the loop...

Gus, unfortunately, has told me that he won't be available to keep posting in Howling Storm. To keep things going -- and give everyone the shot at victory you've earned -- I'll be taking things over for him. If the transition causes any in-character friction or uncertainty just let me know and I'll do my best to clear it up or adjust my post.)


Infrared's offer hung in the air for what seemed a long moment, as though Kol were considering it. However, something entirely different was, in fact, happening -- a conversation that none of the adventurers were privy to. Similarly, and for exactly the same reason, Cade left silence to be his answer to Solar's agitated questions. To their ears only a message had been relayed. They were needed elsewhere, urgently.

The shadow of another Bullhead darkened the daylit entryway into the cave, it's doors swinging wide open as it swept in to take position opposite Cade and Kol's craft. From those doors descended half a dozen masked and rifle-armed Fang troopers, led by a lieutenant in a long white trenchcoat. They hit the deck and immediately took up positions, weapons aimed at Solar and Infrared while the squad leader addressed his superiors. "We can take things from here, sir. Squads two and three are inbound."

With clear reluctance the two departed, their Bullhead swooping in low so that they could easily board before turning and angling out of the cavern. Another tense moment settled in as the Fang Lieutenant drew his sword and pointed it at Solar. "You have no chance! Our superiors may have seen fit to play with you, but if you oppose us I will show you no mercy. Surrender the crown and leave with your lives, or continue to resist and suffer the consequences!"






Disappearing into the dark, Quisling too had heard the transmission -- though, this far from the entrance, it was garbled and distorted by the mountain. Still, he was able to make out enough: Kol Augur and Cade had been recalled, though for what he couldn't fathom. Didn't the Fang understand how important this artifact was?! He'd made its power and usefulness abundantly clear over his months of posing as a historian, and yet now, with one of the most potent Dust weapons ever conceived nearly in reach, they were gambling the mission on their reserves?! The rat faunus scowled in distaste; those squads hadn't been intended as anything more than an insurance policy in case things went wrong or, if things went right, extra hands to help gather and haul away anything of worth. Lieutenant Fallon was an arrogant glory-hound who, out from under the restraining hand of his betters, would surely make a botch-job of this entire operation. How had it come down to this?!

Clutching his drone, the infiltrator programmed in a few pre-rendered maneuvers that would help him buy time before releasing it into the air. He just had to incapacitate these fools, then even Fallon couldn't screw this up.

They would have the Crown... and with it, the White Fang's enemies would tremble!

Questions marks popped up all around Solar's head. " Hey where do you think YOUR going!? Who's this your replacement!? Someone tell me what's going on!" Solar enraged at not fully understanding the situation.
"You have no chance! Our superiors may have seen fit to play with you, but if you oppose us I will show you no mercy. Surrender the crown and leave with your lives, or continue to resist and suffer the consequences!"

Her reckless nature and lack of patience was getting the better of her. With an irritated glare Solar mindlessly charged at the man with the fancy sword, swinging her axe with heavy but slow blows. " Who. Are. You. People!?" Solar breathed in between swings, putting more emphasis on last word to get her point across.

Akel brought her right hand up to her headset, the drone made a sound when it hovers that much was obvious, but the problem was that she didn't have time to isolate the new sound to give herself the advantage. However in saying this, she had a clue, the drone would either needed to be controlled or needed to move by presets. Pre-sets meant everything from the sound it made to the movements it would make.

Bringing her sword to a stance she also had an idea of how he fought: a coward lingering in the darkness, hidden by his poisonous smoke to not allow himself to be seen. A rat walking through and among disease and death. "Hiding like a rat? Absolutely despicable. A coward through and through, you won't be getting that crown, not today and not ever."

Akel dropped the bags of charges and threw them over to the side, they hopefully wouldn't go off by some means during this fight. Akel knew wouldn't fight them directly. the drone would be doing that just like how he tried to win them over by bribery before. So, without waiting she shot three bullets off towards the footsteps that she could hear. Switching targets she shot another four towards where she heard the footsteps start from. Since it was a plausible spot for him to be if he wanted to go by undetected. The first shots would reveal if that was the drone or not, based on her earlier assumption there would be no change of movements if it was the drone and if it was Quisling she would hear some form of change in movements, a change in footwork, a sudden stop, even the tiniest hint would tell her what she needed to know.

...For one moment Infrared thought it actually worked. Nevermind. What she got instead is dropping the number of threats from two bosses to a boss in mook's clothing. Let's hope it's not from a Princess Taijitu to a Re- class- oh wait both of them are just fan-created expansions- Beringel. And it's also probably to no credit of hers, which kind of hits a little at her oft-boasted savviness. At least the odds are now not definitely overwhelming now. That was definitely an unwinnable situation especially if the 1v1s were to be secured against us. This seems much easier.

Mooks would be easy, one activation of the semblance per mook should do it. But she doesn't want to expose her dangerous not-forbidden technique since she already got a plan, thus having a good reason to not open with her strongest move first. Noting her previously spotted ceiling of rocks she moved towards the original entrance where he and Akel are. This is so cool and would work so well she just had to execute it. There's an unattended bag, let's start with this one. The sooner she got back her charges the faster she can reinforce Solar and the earlier it happens the more damage she can inflict.

"Who. Are. You. People!?"

The lieutenant with the sword met her axe-swinging charge blade-to-blade, deflecting her heavy swings a few times before sidestepping and taking a swing back at her. "What?? Do you live in this cave, girl?!" There was a laughing mockery in Fallon's voice that shifted over to pride and arrogance with his next words. "WE are the White Fang -- protectors and avengers of the faunus, bane of bloody-handed humanity!" He feigned another swipe, then pulled the blade back and thrust it into a jab aimed at her shoulder. "We're the ones you and the others should be siding with..." Moving back a step, he pulled a pistol from a holster behind his back and aimed it squarely at Solar. "... The ones who will bring peace and order to the world, and justice to our oppressed race."

"So... last chance: surrender yourselves and the crown, and all will be forgiven. What do you say, hm?"

Meanwhile, the White Fang troopers had moved to secure the area as best they could. Three of them had their rifles aimed at Infrared while the other half of the squad made their way down the ship's ramp, heading for where Rust, Akel, and Cordell were. Those who'd stayed on deck seemed wary, watching Infrared as she began to head for the unattended bag. "YOU! Stop, or we'll open fire!" It seemed she'd have to choose between dashing for the bag, taking on the threats, or juggling both at once somehow.





"Hiding like a rat? Absolutely despicable. A coward through and through, you won't be getting that crown, not today and not ever."

From his hiding place, Quisling scowled. He hated when people called him that; he hadn't worked his way into being an infiltrator for the Fang just to get treated like some... some rodent! He was really starting to detest this lot -- even if they were fellow faunus, they were making this much harder than it had to be. When Akel's first shots rang out, though, his scowl turned to a slight grin. Thinking his decoy had already drawn their attention (and entirely unaware that Alek was two steps ahead of him), the saboteur began to ease out from hiding with the aim to ambush the student and the pirate -- however, he wouldn't even get his second step before a volley of fire came at him. Two shots went wide but the other two made their mark; screeching, Quisling reeled back as his sickly green Aura flared from unexpected impacts to his chest and arm. The light, however brief, was enough to clearly paint his location in the dark.

And that wasn't the only fire coming his way, either.

While Akel had been employing her clever tactic, Cordell had been pulling out one of her space ammo cartridges. Now with Quisling visible she quickly swapped it in and fired -- an FE-02 that lit up a huge area as its fireball erupted. Her first shot went wide, hitting the floor some distance from target, but it exposed his location plain as day. "There's th' bastard!"

Terrified, Quisling scrambled towards a large pile of rocks. He was out in the open until he reached it, though... a prime target for Akel's .223s.





As Rust went to rejoin Solar and Infrared onboard the Howling Storm, he'd find himself with a bit of a speedbump -- three White Fang footsoldiers coming down the boarding ramp towards him. Seeing the merc in modified Atlas armor coming towards them, all three abruptly halted in their steps, raised their rifles... and hesitated. They were exposed and wide open on the ramp. All that Alizarin had to do was choose how to handle them.
