"Absolutely marvelous. Right! Let's... let's hope this goes to plan. Okay. Tallyho, pip-pip!" He enthusiastically answers, before putting in his own earplugs and stepping into Ramalia's hands. He braces himself, holds Saxobeat in one hand, and then is absolutely sent flying with nary a scream high into the sandstorm above.

Erza tracks the path of her twin for a second, then two as he's sent soaring, before turning to check in with Ramalia, and seeing her dive behind cover. She gives the desert dweller a nod in confirmation before transforming her sword into it's secondary mode, then takes her own position behind one of the makeshift barriers where she can fire off shots at anything that gets too close. One Beowolf, two Creepers, and then another Beowolf fall to her gun, before-

Erza and Ramalia wouldn't be able to hear it, but they'd probably feel the high-pitched tone ripping through the surrounding area, loud enough for anybody to hear. Azre had reached the height of his flight where he'd taken the absolute deepest breath possible, before playing the highest-pitch tone that Saxobeat was capable of - resulting in an incredibly-loud, incredibly painful tone being broadcast for literally everyone to hear - at least, everyone except Ramalia and Erza. Any Grimm within 200 meters would be treated to the front seat of Azre's debut and make them cower in pain, but so would any of their nearby allies - and that's not even speaking of Ramalia's animals.

At the very least, it's an excellent distraction.

A heavy clunk and mechanical groan let out as the second gun finally sparked back to life was completely overshadowed by the earth shattering blast emitting from Azre's instrument. The wave of sound knocked a wave Grimm back in an almost perfect circle giving enough space from the bull head land although the plane wouldn't remain safe for long. Unfortunately the crumbling walls defenders were almost as badly affected by the blast as the Grimm and the wall went silent except for the moans of pain. Azre luckily fell back to earth on the newly deGrimmed sands but the hoard was quickly recovering and approaching again. Patch along with crew members from the bull head rushed out to drag the survivors to relative safety but that left defending the plane to the hunters-in-training.

Furious over the injuries her eagle and snake suffered from the deafening sound blasts Ramalia turned that fury against the Grimm, holstering her cannon and charging into the throng, gauntlets buzzing menacingly. Strike after strike felled Grimm after Grimm but as one of the monsters fell two more took it's place and now stronger Grimm started to appear. Ursas and even a small Beringel could be seen approaching. Although Ramalia provided a decent distraction she also was quickly getting out of her depth and already was starting to suffer some serious blows, including once getting thrown back so far she would have hit the bull head if it wasn't for some clever applications of wind dust before screaming out another war cry and charging back in.

Luckily the storm looked like it was clearing or at least moving away from the rescue operation restoring reasonable vision, unfortunately ignorance of their position was no longer possible. Hoards of Grimm stretched back as far as the eyes could see and their only objective seemed the rescue operation. Working as fast as they could the skeleton crew could hardly drag in almost a hundred most unresponsive people and things where getting desperate. 'We have around half the wounded on board, but there is no way you can hold this hoard back forever.' The pilot radioed in to the hunters-in-training. 'We need to get moving now otherwise we won't be able to save anybody.' There was clear desperation in the pilot's voice, he didn't want to abandon these people but he also definitely didn't want to die.

The words definitely resonated with Ramalia who started to pull back, survival of the tribe was paramount to the scavenger and it would be better to return with some than none at all. She still looked over to Ezra, the team's leader would be the one making the final decision here and Ramalia would stand by that, she was huntsmaster after all. Hefting her cannon back out Ramalia quickly made her way over to Ezra, if they where leaving soon Ramalia would make sure she wasn't left behind and had already directed her still dazed animals into the bull head.

Azre falls onto the earth safely, the sound of his saxaphone ringing out over the sandstorm as a massive jet of flames slows his fall, and conveniently eliminates any nearby Grimm. Once he hits the earth he immediately sprints over to cover the other side of the bullhead left open by Ramalia. Any Beowolf or Creeper that approaches is treated to blast after blast of fire or an axe to the neck, rapidly switching out the cartridges in order to keep up with the endless hoards. He manages to keep the crowds back, but only just - he may not be gaining ground, but he's definitely not losing any.

"Keep loading as many survivors on as possible, I've got a distraction that'll buy us enough time. Ramalia and Azre, prepare to hold out just a little longer!" Erza yells into her scroll, sprinting up through the sands towards where her teammate charged forwards. She's only steps behind the larger woman, her sword slicing down the occasional Grimm that thought it would be a good idea to target her - eventually leaping up to flip over the head of a Beowolf, using it's back as a springboard as she launches herself into the air.

Azre widens his eyes as he hears her bark the order, taking a moment to bring his own scroll up to his mouth. "Do me a favor, and please don't shoot my sister, her semblance can be a bit... overwhelming." He warns, before returning freezing a Grimm to death.

That's all the warning both Ramalia and the pilot would get, as the creature that comes back down from where Erza launches herself doesn't look entirely human. It's obviously not human - nearly 8 feet tall, the creature that's replaced their dear leader has a tangled mane of golden hair framing it's face. But it's definitely not a Grimm either - despite it's gorilla like proportions, giving it the hunch of a small Beringal, it lacks the characteristic white bone mask and black skin, replaced by a hide of tan leather, and several all-yellow eyes with slit-black pupils. One arm grips a small, worn-looking sword, while the tatters of a familiar red cape hang from it's neck - and as it moves from it's knuckles to stand on two feet, the roar that it lets out is completely inhumane as it beats it's chest for effect - a massive call for dominance, aimed to attract the attention of every Grimm in the area.

Something went cold deep within Ramalia as she saw what Ezra had become. Fear. Until then a reasonably unknown emotion for the former scavenger and it gripped her tight. Frozen at the sight of this monster Ramlia could do nothing more than stand still, others, however, had a far more violent response. The large dust cannons turned to face Ezra sending huge balls of dust smashing towards her, fear dampened their aim but it is hard to miss with such a large projectile and so close. The concussive shockwaves of these attacks were enough to shake Ramalia out of her stupor somewhat, unlike those they were defending she still recognized Ezra's monstrous form as her leader Ramalia began to turn her cannon on the defenders. But she hesitated. Ezra's order had been clear and Ramalia had no choice but to follow it. Dashing back up the ramparts Ramalia ripped the remaining defenders away from their guns before roughly throwing them into the plant. All the while doing what she could to assist her new teammates whether through her own cannon as well as stripping her just repaired large guns and tossing their ammo stores to create massive ground shaking explosions.

It was not going to be enough for long. The new heightened sense of fear the defenders felt stoked the Grimm horde into new heights of ferocity. This combined with the silencing of the large guns and Ramalia's tempory absence meant the horde came crashing down with furious force. Charging forward with even less strategy than before the horde slammed again and again into Ezra and Azre, simply throwing themselves at the hunters in training rather than biting and clawing. Despite the huge odds arrayed against them the hunters in training managed to hold the line, Patch finally called in they had everyone on board, it could have come fast enough. A Beringal tried to match Ezra's ferocity with a blood-chilling roar of its own and charged the monstrous huntress. Not that Azre and Ramalia where getting easy, their anti-horde measures being stretched to the limit as waves of Beowulf and Creepers along with an Ursa mixed in meant a single misstep could spell death.

But the hunters in training had completed their objective, the survivors had been loaded up and the drop ship was already taking off. 'OK hero time is over, get in or get left behind.' The pilot yelled through the team's comms. Despite being the most together, outside Azre, at Ezra's transformation, it clearly unnerved the man to no small degree. Ropes dropped from the ship as it quickly rose into the air, dragged along the behind the hunters in training away from the oncoming Grimm horde. Ramalia looked at her team, a little crestfallen given how slow she was to react before and offered to rear guard their escape. 'You two get out of here, I have enough dust to give myself enough space to get to the ropes.' Ramalia called out wretching the loading mechanism of her cannon apart with her bare hands and taking out these large glass cannon balls. Time was running short and if RASB wanted to survive long enough to enjoy the glory from their heroics as it seemed for all the killing they had inflicted on the horde it had only served in enraging them more.
