The Ursa whimpered as both of its legs got attacked from the sides, one by Topaz and another by Airi. With a large crash, the beast fell onto some crates, knocking them aside while struggling against the wire wrapped around its leg. Whilst still tied, the beast struggled under its own weight and lack of support from its now smoking leg and roared in defiance as it tried yanking against Airi's wire to free itself.


Almost wriggling free, the Ursa yanked one more time with enough force to knock Airi off balance if she wouldn't let go, and managed to plant the wire caught leg back up. It took a swipe at Topaz, missing completely as it stumbled on one injured leg, and tried again, only to get a face full of nevermore from above while Vivian landed towards its head. Several more flying grimm were taken down by Sheer's burst with a joint barrage by the remaining Atlesian Knights and the birds dispersed leaving but a few stragglers and one very angry ursa on the ground.

Peeking out from one of the cars near the back of the train, a man in a white cropped suit with red hair observed the fight with interest and shooed away a small nevermore with a small slap of his hand. He pulled out a scroll not a moment later and deactivated the remaining Atlesian Knights, prompting them to curl down after marching back into the car, despite some of them still getting assaulted by small grimm.

"Good good. That's what you huntsmen are for. Though I do have to say your efficiency leaves some...area for improvement." He said, arms set back as he strutted towards the ursa. Spotting Vivian in the air, he took a few steps back and checked his watch. Almost as if he were timing the end of the encounter.

________________________________________________________________________________

Professor William Nox observed the rather coincidentally coordinated attempt by the quad of huntsmen-in-training and grumbled something about his tools lying all over the train car. There wasn't much left for him to do but tidy up as the kids would probably take care of the ursa any moment now, though that left him to wonder what started the grimm attack in the first place. Whatever it was it wasn't exactly his area of expertise so he started browsing his scroll for more info about the train while several of his 0ddb0ts started cleaning up, one of the drone versions sparking at the joints as it moved.

Crimson Express. Yadda yadda, same stuff as before. Unfortunately digging deeper into the databases wasn't his speciality so he gave up the search and instead have a bot fly out the window to sirvey the train.

________________________________________________________________________________

Ducking back behind the car Kei hid as the white-suited man appeared. He looked important enough to be familiar with the people on board and observant enough to see through a disguise. She cursed her luck as she siddled back into the engineering section of the train and could hear murmurs about an odd fast moving object coming from the front of the train. It was still a ways away but no further info was spoken as some engineers scrambled back to their stations as a large mechanical groaning echoed through the car.

Topaz dodged the weak excuse for an attack by the Ursa while watching it fall to the ground now with one less leg but even with its rapid weight loss it wasn't quite done yet. Not giving the Grimm any more time to react she raced forward towards and this time went for the neck of the beast. As she approached she did notice that the guards around her who were just firing their guns had all gone mysterious quiet for no apparent reason.

This little nugget of information was enough for Topaz to decide to abort her current course of action as she quickly changed direction to be in front of the Ursa. Sliding to a stop she swung Lithium down carelessly onto the Ursas face while scanning the rest of the cart and seeing now that the guards were deactivated for some reason.

"Hey! Whats going on with the robots!?" She yelled out to the rest of the students.

Vivian dropped from the sky a moment later, slamming her elbow down on the Ursa's upper back as it lay there stunned. She was pretty sure her rabbit ears picked up the sound of cracking bone, but that didn't mean it couldn't still get back up. Even after Topaz struck it on the face, she figured it would be best to make absolutely sure. From her spot atop the weakened beast's back, she kneeled down and pulled both her arms back before beginning a rapid barrage of steel punches. Her arms moved at an unnaturally fast rate, absolutely pummeling the Ursa's skull from behind like two jackhammers. Both arms let out the whir of spinning motors, showing no signs of tiring out. Despite the furiousness of her fists, Vivian herself looked rather calm. Her head tilted as she observed the Ursa curiously, trying to figure out if it was still alive.

"Hmm..." The assault of metal slowed down, giving the monster a few more solid hooks before she finally stopped. "... Yep." If it hadn't been already, it was definitely dead now. The lack of movement from the monster as well as the dark steam emanating from its now partially flattened head just about confirmed it.

Somewhat distracted by her own attack, Vivian didn't realize what exactly Topaz was talking about until after she hopped off of the Ursa and took a look around. The Atlesian Knights were abandoning them. That was... odd? Definitely not what was supposed to be happening. "Maaaybe they're leaving the rest to us? Those bots are probably expensive." It seemed unlikely, but she was unable to come up with any other reasoning.

Airi regained her balance after being pulled by the Ursa shortly before its demise.  Straightening out her outfit, she looked towards the deactivating Knights in response to the exclamations by the other students.  "Hmm, that's strange indeed.  But forget about it for now, let's secure the area quickly and move on."  With that, she brandished her blade and swung at several small Grimm that were harassing the deactivating Knights.

     "Expensive indeed, miss Xanthia. Though not nearly as important as our cargo." The man in the white suit stated, fixing his tie as he approached the young fighters. "Having intervened when not asked was appreciated but not required."

With a quick swipe on his scroll the deactivated Atlesian Knights marched towards the back of the train and took out any straggling grimm with short bursts of machine gun fire. "Jonathan Crimson, if you wish to address me but please don't use any frivolous nicknames. Now where were we?"

Studying the students with a cool gaze, Jonathan - not much older than Professor Nox himself - audibly clicked his tongue as he noticed the small wreckage and now-deceased Ursa. "No need for introductions, I have your files on my scroll right here. But since I'm here I suppose I could entertain any questions for the time being." Jonathan said, glancing every now and then at the back of the train. "But before I do I must ask," he paused, raising what seemed to be a faux moustache

"Have any of you lost a moustache?"

"Oh! Oh! Me!" One of Vivian's hands shot up, waving a bunch at the strange moustache man as she jumped a couple of times. After a moment, she snickered, bringing the arm back down. "Nah, just kidding. No clue who lost it. But, like, I'll definitely take that off your hands if you don't want it." What purpose for a fake moustache could she possibly have? Vivian herself didn't even know, but that was totally only because she didn't have one.

"What?" Topaz quietly muttered to herself as she was confused by the man who called himself Jonathan Crimson. She assumed this person was the one who put the request for the job up but, why was he intervening? And why does he care about a fake mustache? It could have been left over from a previous rider. With these thoughts swirling around her head Topaz spoke up, "I can't say it's mine either but I think there are more pressing matters at hand. For instance, who are you?". She continued to maintain eye contact with the man and did not lower her weapon, after all strangers that suddenly appear on a train usually are not too trust worthy.

Tossing the mustache with an almost devil-may-care flick of his wrist, Jonathan seceded the prop and stared back at Topaz with an equally leering gaze only to soften as he realized just how stupid the kid might be. "You don't read much, do you?" he claimed, pulling his scroll out and  barely giving Topaz any acknowledgement.

It should have been obvious from his surname alone. He owned the train, or rather the company in which it did services for, a somewhat new face in the bustling and demanding delivery services which seemed to explode onto the scene not too long back.  Two swipes on his scroll and he sent the aforementioned details to the kids, disappointed that his hired help was so incompetent.

"This is why I prefer robots and mechs, they don't raise guns at those who bought them." he muttered, turning away. "Coincidentally, where is your professor? I'm guessing back with his drones as usual? There's something I need to ask of him if he's not too busy."

While Topaz was confronting this Jonathan Sheer Gold was already looking up with his scroll searching for the name but then the man just sent his detail over. Seems legit. Although it would be best to confirm with Professor Nox.

Professor Nox,

Is this person our employee? Just checking for impostors with you to be safe. Also, he is asking to talk to you. Should I direct him to you?

Sheer

Sheer attached file sent by Jonathan and sent it the professor's way. Sheer decided he should get a response before actually talking anything important, though talking something else could do.
"Robots and mechs aren't a tenth as versatile or resourceful as a human with relevant training, say us. At least for the foreseeable five, ten years... but by the time the robots can think as well as we do the 'don't raise gun' would kind of be nullified. For now, you're better off installing turrets for exterior defenses if blind obedience is what you wanted."
Catalina Glenn - first year Beacon Academy student - "Not funny, dude! And not dudes... and everyone else... " - Cata, Cat.
Infrared Ray - fourth year Atlas academy student - "So it's __ and __(insert name here) meets each other."
Sheer Gold - second year Beacon academy student - "This is super effective!"
