(OOC: Heyo! The SALTy Sea threads are officially merged now, so... who's ready to flee a sinking ship with a pirate of questionable intent?)


She had to fight the urge to panic as her Semblance reported back, their situation clearly going from bad to worse in short order. Grimm. Almost certainly aquatic Grimm, at that, and she rather doubted that anyone here was an expert in underwater combat. While it wasn't surprising that the dark beasts would be drawn to the panic aboard a sinking ship, the notion that they could even reach the ailing vessel amid a storm like this was a bit surprising. Clearly there was far less turbulence and chaos below the waves than upon them.

Well, it was time to make a choice...

Abandoning her stealth and stepping out into the open, the fiery young pirate leveled her cutlass at the two Atlas students ahead of her. "Oi! You lot!" Her words were shouted such that they couldn't be ignored, and no doubt when the Dorian and Avery turned and saw an unfamiliar woman in an outlandish outfit brandishing a blade at them they'd have plenty of concerns. Those concerns would soon turn to alarm as, with a sharp hiss of pressurized air, the blade of said sword shot through the air towards them both, missing by only about a foot. The blade clattered off a bulkhead further down their route before swiftly magnetizing, the woven metal tow line connecting it to the rest of the cutlass going taut. Using it to stabilize herself against the jostling and swaying of the ship, Cordell let the retracting line pull her into a light-footed sprint. "Grab a hold, an' don't bother me with questions! Yer ship's takin' on more'n just water from th' sea, boys -- we're gonna have t' fight our way t' shore if any of us wanna live through this!" It was an alliance of convenience, no question, but hardly unprecedented. When Grimm threatened, the people of Remnant -- even sworn enemies -- knew it was either fight together or risk dying alone.

And she was not dying here!

Avery ducked away from the blade as it pierced the air just beside him. He was ready to drop Dorian and prepare for another attack, but the woman's words froze him in his tracks. Indecision and hesitation: the wrenches that clogged the gears of his mind which he'd normally be able to work through with time, but time was a luxury that they couldn't afford. He bite his lip.

The ship lurched as the woman neared and Avery could feel his footing gave way just as she passed him. He freed his hand that was resting atop his weapon and instead used it to grab hold of the woman, lunging toward her as his feeling of imbalance turned into a reality. His hold on her was also worrisome, but with his other hand preoccupied with Dorian, there wasn't much he could do except pray that the ship wouldn't do anything drastic.

Topaz glared at Aurum in a feeble attempt to get her annoyance and disappoint at the quality of his joke across while in reality her looked much more panicked then she intended, even if the joke was in a effort to lighten the sinking mood it seemed to her they should save it for after they clear themselves of danger. Glancing back at the water she barely escaped she could see some large fish Grimms shadows lurking about just below the surface below where the light of the emergency lights could reach. While Topaz grabbed Aurums arm and pulled herself to her feet she finally realized the type of Grimm these were and thanked her lucky stars that she got out before they showed up.

"Considering it was the fish bomb that got us into this mess I would say, yeah, it still seems pretty bad." Topaz said in response to Aurums query while also trying to calm her shaky sounding voice, continuing to look at Aurum she toggled her microphone into broadcast mode and said.

"We got Kotick I think? in the water, a whole bunch of them too guess they want refuge inside the ship or somethin." Disabling her small microphone she shouldered Lithium and began running up the stairs behind Aurum while also trying to maintain her balance. The tipping of the ship doing tons to trip her up throughout the entire journey no doubt much slower than the nimble Aurum. In between sliding around and muttering curses Topaz activated her semblance tracking down the location of the crystal that she had given Dorian at the beginning of the mission. Locating the small crystal she called out to Aurum,

"Dorian and Avery are up a deck, or sideways I guess? Well, in that direction" She pointed up towards the top of the ship and to the left. "Head in that direction and we should be able to meet up with them"

"The heck is a kotick, all I saw were swirly, black, evil licorice!" Aurum cried, almost tripping as they advanced, "Speaking of licorice do you got anything to chew on? I need something to bring my energy back up after using so many bubbles.

     Despite the cheer in his voice, Aurum was showing small signs of exhaustion. He left a number of bubbles to hold back the evil licorice back there and after holding them so long, and using so many in such a short amount of time, his movements started becoming slightly more sluggish. Luckily he was well rested physically, considering he had Silver Tanhelm carry him around all morning in spider form, but another rapid use of Golden Time would surely be a dampener to his day. Even more so than his now wet underwear.

     Aurum nodded briefly and chimed a quick, "Lead the way, Topaz" as they navigated their way up.

     Making their way through the ship reminded Aurum of one of those tumbling rooms he used to see in theme parks, except wetter. The stairs were at an odd angle, some random objects started rolling down the wrong way, his balance was almost always a bit off with his footing, and the swaying didn't help his empty stomach.

     The water was now pretty far below by now but the squishy feeling he got in his socks kept reminding him how soaked he was. He stared down at his unkempt uniform, a few buttons loosened and his shirt untucked, and wondered if going outside wet was the best option they had. "Going out in the cold is going to suck, big time." he complained, only to be interrupted by the sound of water crashing against the walls down below, "buuuut I'll take that over getting eaten alive by evil licorice. I'M THE ONE WHO'S SUPPOSED TO EAT YOU!" he shouted, getting a groan from the ship in reply. Rude.

Despite being a rather loopsided bunch Dorian, Avery and Cornell managed to shoot their way to one of the escape pods, thankfully it seemed they where passing through a lull of the storm which would mean a few moments of respite even as the storm would come back as fierce as ever once the piece passed. The excitement of such a rapid form of transport towards the lift raft combined with Dorian almost spilling out of Avery's hand made it hard to hear the stomping of wet shoes coming up from below. Quickly Topaz and Aurum turn around the corner ending up face to face Dorian, Avery and the newcomer Cornell.

The life raft is a rather high tech affair, six seats in an enclosed shuttle like chassis capable of submerging or operating on the surface with all the sensory technology it's parent ship had as well as hopefully avoiding the viruses which plagued the main craft. Regardless the ship continued to drop into the sea as it continued to fill with water and grimm. As the group finally united the storm kicked up again and continued to rock the ship along with a series of crashes against the hull, far too concentrated to be completely random.

Pods of Kotick's started to come out to play making a series of passes at life raft as it was released, the grimm weren't immediately attacking but where clearly still around and hadn't forgotten about the Atlas Students and their pirate companion. Scans found land not far off or the team could try to continue it's way to the research lab.

Finally, a stroke of some luck! Cordell spotted the escape vehicle even at a distance, her awareness as an engineer giving her plenty of clues even before the actual signage for the emergency pod came within reading distance. Now all they needed was --

And, as if on cue, the remaining crew rounded the corner. Cordell immediately nicknamed them 'blonde #2' and 'blonde #3' in her mind, with the two boys she'd semi-rescued already having been designated 'blonde' (now 'blonde #1') and 'ginger' moments before. This group pretty well shared the stereotypical Atlesian pale-and-fair thing, that was for certain, though none of them were rocking the whole 'crown of snow' white-hair bit, at least not quite. A glance across the two newcomers' gear and weaponry confirmed what she'd already guessed from Avery and Dorian: students, not sailors. Ye gawds, did that explain a few things.

In any case, they had a moment of calm and a shot -- narrowing with each passing second -- to make it through this mess. Three choices presented themselves. One: she could try to assert authority by taking four heavily armed and well trained Atlas students hostage using nothing more than two pistols and a cutlass... not a smart play. Two: try, without having the first bleeding idea as to the group's mission or standing orders, to convince them that it was best to work together and that they must all have common cause for braving this mad storm... which would take far far too much time and likely get all of them killed. And then, of course... there was option three.

"Name's Cordell -- smuggler, criminal, pirate." She deactivated and reeled back the blade of her cutlass... then turned it around and extended it handle-first for Avery to take. "An' I surrender. But let's deal with th' formalities once we're not in danger o' drownin', aye?" She nodded towards the pod.

"Just in time!" Avery said upon Topaz' and Aurum's arrival. They seemed a bit disheveled and figured that they didn't have the best time, either. Aside from the sinking ship, that is.

Avery was still weary of the the woman who'd come out of nowhere just to save them and he wondered if she had something else up her sleeves. Kidnapping? Perhaps she'd even orchestrated this entire fiasco! That made it all the more surprising when she willingly gave up her weapon and surrendered herself to DALT.

In truth, he thought about leaving her behind, but her capabilities were unknown to him and it'd be dangerous to wonder into that territory given their situation. Hiding his shock as best he could, he accepted her weapon and places it upon the left side of his wasit. Avery moved Dorian into the pod before gesturing toward Cornell, Topaz, and Aurum to get in as well.

"No time to waste. I'll cover the rear."

"Sorry Avery I didn't bring any snacks for ya this time" She called back as they rounded the corner to join up with the rest of the team, and an extra person who Topaz was pretty sure wasn't there when they boarded the ship. Before Lithium could be taken off her back and placed into a battle ready position the newcomer, Cordell as she learned, surrendered to DALT opting to get in the lifeboat and sort out what the hell was going on later rather than fighting in the rapidly sinking ship.

With a look of that was a mix of distrust and confusion on her face Topaz responded to the surrender with a drawn out, "Uhhh. Guess this is happening too now." as she came to much the same conclusion as Cordell, opting to also get into the relative safety of the lifeboat and hoping that it wouldn't succumb to whatever was happening to the main ship that just minutes ago was nice and stable. Once inside she began activating all the system as quick as she could and prepared it for launch into the dark waters below.

As Topaz flipped on the last switches for the scanner system a green light illuminated the front of the lifeboat showing that the scanner had flickered to life and was giving them some direction in the now calmer storm. "Judging by these scans and what we saw below decks it looks like we got about.....,yikes, a million and two Grimm ready to attack us the second we hit the water. I say we just blast it straight to that land over there" She said pointing to a spot on the scanner, without waiting for the rest of the team to give input Topaz began going through the last of the launch sequence with the full intention of following her proto-plan since it seemed no other options were available to DALT, at least as far she really cared.

     Aurum resisted the urge to throw his wet socks at the newcomer, wondering if she actually was a pirate. She had the get-up, that was evident, and the talking. "But where the heck is your eyepatch? The Parrot? Also...where in Remnant is your ship, Cappy!?" Aurum spat out, his thoughts turning into words half way. He shrugged prematurely at the incoming groans and closed one eye, hooking his elbow in classic pirate fashion. "Uh...I mean. Yarr! Where be your fine ship, if ye really arrre a pirate? Or are ye a faker?!" Rolling r's are a must! Especially if they sounded like Arrrrrr. Arrrrr, Yarrrr, Garrrrr. What else sounded piratey?

    Hopping towards the escape pod as Avery gestured at them, Aurum gave his brother a well deserved, and extremely soggy, pat on the shoulder. Thanking him while gawking at Topaz' grimm count. "Are you sure there are that many? That's a lot of evil licorice to fight. I say we run. No shame in running! Heck, why else would they call it the fight or FLIGHT syndrome if it wasn't as important. Live to fight another day, I say!. Aurum said, pulling off a boot before getting into the pod, an unbelievable amount of water pouring out. He switched back to pirate speak a second later, winking at Cordell, "And let's bring the fine lass, as well. We be needing a guide once we get leave, yar? Does yar mean yes? Oh whatever."

As DALT and their new pirate friend, all crammed into the escape pod the automated systems recognised all crew finally aboard and disengaged shooting the craft out. Normally this would send the escape pod straight into the water but now with host ship, half capsized there was an uncomfortable free fall before they reached the water. Not far enough to cause significant damage but enough to send the unsecured stumbling around the cockpit, including Dorian who only just managed to find a seat before he fell back into the rest of the group. Immediately facing down into the depts a possible reason for the large host of Grimm attacking an isolated shipwreck revealed itself. A truly leviathan-sized Grimm swam just a couple dozen meters below the sea, so large it's head or tail wasn't visible. Luckily for DALT and their pirate friend, the enormous creature didn't seem to notice them and simply continued swimming slowly on its way.

Dorian seems to have finally truly lapsed into unconsciousness still murmuring about being swept over off the ship. The Kotick began to surround the pod but are not going in for the kill yet. After almost an hour of pounding dust on metal and the screeching of a capsizing vessel, the silence which now enveloped the escape pod was a stark contrast, it could even be comforting if it wasn't so awkward. Regardless DALT wasn't out of the storm yet and although the Leviathan below them was paying them any attention more than enough other Grimm were.

As the life raft righted itself it's more advanced electronics activated. Whatever the issue with the host ship's computer systems didn't look like it had infected the escape pods systems as it was correctly reporting the surrounding water level correctly. It reports a small land mass within an hour travel, maps report considerably forested but an otherwise uninhabited island. There are plenty of survival resources in the pod as well, food, communication devices, and shelter basics are easily enough for all five to survive for weeks if need be.
No criticism is too harsh so hit me with your best shot.

'Out of one frying pan...' Cordell thought to herself as the pod lurched to life, briefly launching into a gut-tightening arc before splashing back down haphazardly and beginning to come online. She was jostled, to be sure, but had managed to get a handhold and brace herself before the separation from the main craft, so in that regard all was well. That she now shared a fairly snug emergency craft with a handful of Atlas personnel didn't do much to put her at ease, and neither did the awareness that the water around them almost certainly teemed with dark life. And then, passing right in front of their pod's main view port, swam the largest f***ing Grimm she had ever, EVER seen. It was an uphill battle not to be absolutely overcome with fear at the sight -- that thing was big enough that it could probably swallow the pod whole and not even realize it. The pirate captain held her breath and stayed as stock-still as she could manage, terrified at the idea that it might notice them. Thank the gods, it just kept on swimming.

The pod, now coming fully online, did what it was built and programmed to do. Whether it would ultimately protect the group long enough to make landfall... well, that was an entirely separate matter. She was certain that the lesser Grimm were still after them, if only because Grimm never gave up that easily, but if this pod had been built right it would probably keep them all safe... at least for a while. The idea to use her Semblance, both to get a better picture of their tactical situation and the pod's systems, did cross Cordell's mind -- she dismissed it. If there was even the slightest chance using it might draw that thing's attention, it was far too great a risk.

Her eyes were drawn to the computer systems and the maps brought up by the auto-rescue systems. Land was an hour away, and even once they got there safety was far from assured. Getting to a point where her captors wouldn't be pointing gun barrels at her for the rest of this ordeal would improve survivability considerably.

"So . . . " She began somewhat awkwardly, sure to keep her hands where they could be seen. "I'm sure you lot have plenty'a questions for me, then." She glanced at blonde #3 (Aurum), remembering his comments earlier. "Also: a parrot? Really?" There was bemused incredulity in her voice, accompanied by an uplifted eyebrow. She wasn't sure why blue-eyes thought she'd be useful as a guide, but confirming or denying any of this group's suspicions about her could be a bad move at this point. Better to deal with direct questions and see where things went -- volunteering info when it didn't benefit her was too much like giving plunder away for free, after all.

The pod's door nearly closed on Avery, but his desire to get himself off this miserable ship happened to save his life; if he hadn't made it, he'd either be crushed or getting a captain's funeral as he joined the ship in its journey to the bottom of the sea. Being the last one to get in, he wasn't able to find a seat. The fall and subsequent crash into the frigid water below caused Avery to rattle inside the pod like a bead in a maraca.

He laid still, recouping from his minor injuries. The pod's systems seemed to be intact and it was moving toward a landmass. He sighed. "One hour." He laid back and shifted his attention from the systems to Cordell. Since Dorian what out for the count, Avery decided to ask the obvious question, "What were you doing on that ship? If you were looking to take something, why help us?"

Topazs timing could not be better as the second she sat down the pod fell a small distance off the capsizing ship into the water causing her to slide out of her seat and onto the floor with a small bang. Sighing she picked herself back up and dropped into the seat. With the pod in the water and appearing to be heading toward the island she could finally focus on the next event since they was no longer the immediate threat of death preventing an investigation. Still sopping wet her gazed switched between the radar showing the copious amount of Grimm outside and the red-coated Cordell in front of her.

"Did you do something to mess up the ship and almost kill us?" Topaz asked moving her gaze between the red-coated stow away and the screen displaying the worrying amoung of Grimm. The quieter pod also kick-started the process of relising just how much trouble they were in, DALT were shipwrecked, surrounded by god knows how many Grimm, they had a hideaway, and one of the worst personal offenses to Topaz, she'd had to spend the next hour at least sitting in soaking wet clothes with almost no chance to dry them out.

"And we're not even all together" Topaz muttered under her breath as she pulled off her hoody and arm warmers before proceeding to throw them onto the last remaining seat. If she couldn't dry anything out at least she could not be wearing it.

     "Yes really, parrots are a pirate's best mate! Or was it first mate? I know it's not best friend, dog's are man's best friend. Are parrots a pirate's best friend?" Aurum blabbered, one foot bootless and the other soon to follow. Topaz pulled off her sweater right next to him to which he responded with a grimace at how soaked it was. He wasn't any better, however, but the pod seemed warm enough but now it felt like he was wearing a full body diaper.

     Silver Tanhelm sat beside the spikey blonde in a rather metallic like backpack configuration, almost like like a really shiny pillbug, leaving aurum with several straps on his body running across his torso to his arms. Guides for the weapon to follow should he don it. Aurum yawned, barely noticing the repeated red blips on Topaz' monitor, and wanted to take a nap. Unfortunately his remaining squishy boot still irked him so he stretched his leg out and leaned a bit into Topaz to get some room to move, then kicked his boot off with his free leg, sending the heavy boot flying into the ceiling of the pod.

    Aurum grimaced as it smacked the ceiling and sprayed warm foot water across the pod and all he could do was mouth a sorry.

As the escape pod continued bobbing along the water the Kotick starting tightening their circling, occasionally brushing up against the craft as if looking for a reaction or an opening. The Grimm knew DALT and Cornell were inside but the fear the huntsmen and huntresses in training and pirate were feeling was much more controlled than they were used to, and it made them cautious. This prey wasn’t like others they had stalked in the wake of the behemoth below but that trepidation was quickly running out, bumps became scratches, biting into the thick metal plating deeper and deeper each time resulting in horrific screeches as the plating started to give way. The pod was mostly stationary, however, without a pilot, the craft couldn’t navigate all the debris as well as the circling Grimm.

A burst of static came through the pod’s communication system, someone somewhere was trying to get into contact with them but the interference from the still raging storm made it difficult to get a clear signal. ’Alpha…. Romeo….. Theta…..Zulu….ond.’ Was all of the transmission those in the pod could make out, it sounded something like the Atlas confirmation code, used when broadcasting on open channels to ensure both the listener and receiver was friendly although it was too broken to be certain the confirmation code was accurate. There was also something about the voice that even through all the distortion and the static would sound slightly familiar to the still conscious members of DALT.

Speaking of the unconscious members of DALT, Dorian was still unresponsive but that did mean he started flying around the confined pod once the strikes from the Kotick got more and more intense. Without his aura to protect him the blunt force impacts where already causing a fair amount of blood to start seeping out of small scrapes. This wasn’t including the awkwardness of a mostly unconscious person fall into your lap when you a busy trying not to die.
No criticism is too harsh so hit me with your best shot.
