As Nathan was covered in flames, he did his best to endure the resulting pain, keeping an eye trained on Zabar as much as possible. The man avoided his strike, but that wasn't exactly unexpected.

As he shot past the Vacuan, he kept the opponent within line of sight, knowing very well that not looking is the same as not caring in a fight. This allowed him to see Zabar start to go on the offensive, prompting Nathan to attempt to spear him while still looking away, thrusting Ergia towards his chest, intending to use the staff's superior reach.

Anna snorted a laugh when Calen wrote 'lots of love' on the locker's side. That was hysterical. She then followed her teammates through the forest to the specified location, pulsing her semblance every now and then to see things.

Ooooh yep. Just as she thought. The beast tormenting the research team was just the one she'd predicted. Since it now had weak spots and lacked a stinger, it'd be easier to deal with. She turned slightly towards Calen as he explained his view of things and a plan to go along with them. Nodding, she added "I still have a few Dust capsules left. This shouldn't be too-too hard to deal with."

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.

Anna was about to reply to Calen with something about people being generally more stupid than you'd expect, at least until a locker fell out of the sky in a thunderous roar.

Just as Calen started mentioning Taro, Anna had an idea - they could just put him in there for the return trip. It was the next best thing to an airship extraction, really. Oh, neat, seemed like Calen had the same idea. She handed over the unconscious teammate without a word.

Managing to stay out of reach of Zabar's knee by remaining on his side, Nathan felt a whole lot better when he stopped being in a blood-drained state, albeit remained shaky. Rolling further to his right, he avoided the tongues of flame. Using the top of his staff, he pushed against the floor to stand back up as rapidly as possible, nearly fucked it up due to his current state and used the remaining momentum as a slight boost whilst thrusting Ergia into Zabar's abdomen.

The knife managed to not only break the lock, but also make fire, punch through the entirety of the desk, make it explode slightly and embedded itself a good 6 cm into the concrete wall. After picking it back up, Anna opened the undoubtedly traumatized drawer to find a journal - now slightly singed and falling apart, thanks to her lock pick. Welp. She carefully gathered everything and put it in a now-empty pocket of her satchel, where knives wouldn't be able to accidentally turn it into confetti and where it would also remain in order.

Running back up the stairs after her task was complete, she toned down her semblance back to pulsing the second stage and followed Calen out of the building. Bifurcating from her teammate's path, she picked up Taro before resuming her previous course.

After arriving and listening in a similarly crouched position (whilst making sure Taro wasn't having a face full of dirt), she waited for Calen to stop speaking and inserted her own two cents. "One, that's not exactly my semblance. Two, are you really saying we should, as Huntsmen-in-training, leave however many possibly non-combat capable people are being tormented by a single Grimm to their own devices without even attempting to help them evade it, much less try to kill it?"

As Anna moved around, she took in all there was around her, trying to notice if anything was behaving oddly. She decided it'd be best to not touch any of the filled tubes, beakers and whatnot, instead going for the drawers that were here and there.

Opening them one by one, she took the opportunity to further analyze their contents, which became clearly visible as the drawers slid in and out of their slots. She was about to give up - seriously, who the hell stores that many beakers? - before coming across one that looked... locked? There were metal bits going from the drawer to the piece of furniture it was embedded in. "Yeah, hold on, just picking this lock.", she answered to Calen.

Not bothering to spend 5 minutes of her somewhat precious time picking the lock, she took out a knife as well as her second-to-last Kinetic capsule before wedging the assembly right in front of the piece of metal holding the drawer in place. She backed off a bit and detonated it.

As the hit connected on the arm of a very quick to react Zabar, Nathan's Aura flashed bright white enough to become the dominant source of light for a few dozen meters. Almost instantly, he felt the urge to bend forward, in a vain attempt to annihilate the sensation of blood leaving his head. Still in the thick of it, he was unable to do much more than take the hit when Zabar launched one right into his stomach.

He did, however, find the strength to roll to his right immediately afterwards, the scorching hot hand on his shoulder proving to be mildly stimulating. As he landed and he didn't feel like he was a quarter of the way through fainting, he used the occasion to send a half-hearted jab at Zabar's left knee.

As Zabar came into view, Nathan could clearly see another fireball, nearly mesmerizing by its convection and haphazard rolling and tumbling. He readied to run away, dodge, or otherwise once again.

Then Zabar landed on a pilar close by, and... jumped... off...


Whilst becoming vaguely aware that the fireball had now left Zabar's care and was hurtling towards him, Nathan started running. Right at the Vacuan. Or at least, his predicted landing spot.

Not getting far enough away by the time the fireball lost its integrity, Nathan got slightly singed - well, okay, not slightly, he got outright burned - by the expanding mass. However, he held strong, using all the power he could to swing the hardest swing possible right at Zabar's back.

The hardest he could.

(Swing at back: 12% + 3% Fire damage + 3% Lightning damage + 33% from semblance activation upon contact)

Before following Calen inside after what seemed to have been a relaxing eternity wrestling antiques into submission, Anna sat Taro along the external wall and called out to Setsuna. "Hey, Set! Watch over Taro for a bit, please!" This being said, she followed Calen inside.

There was so much dust everywhere, nearly all surfaces had taken on a uniform grey look. She more or less followed Calen as he looked around, using her semblance's second stage to look at the very same things as him. As she was about to head downstairs to search for anything matching the description of 'relic', Calen talked to her. "Well, uh, I guess anything that could be considered old-ish and/or with some sort of historical or scientific significance could fit the bill. Preferably well-preserved. And dunno, maybe it's half symbolic? Sorta?", she finished before going down the stairs and ratcheting her semblance into third gear to actually see something.

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.


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.

What do your characters do when bored/what do they attempt to go and occupy themselves with?

Oh. Oh here it came. Zabar was doing a thing and that thing he was doing happened to be in the process of creating something very similar to a standard fireball. He also happened to be talking but this was something Nathan regarded as being utterly unimportant right now, having bigger fish to fry - or, in this case, avoid frying.

Nathan lost no time being in awe at the genuinely striking flows of flame and Dust gathering in front of Zabar's palm. Turning off the electricity and heat on Ergia, he turned it back into its storage form and hooked it into its place within the harness.

Jumping off the pillar and away from Zabar as far as he could, he received himself further below with a brief thrust of his pack before using his remaining momentum to run away further, keeping the pillar between himself and his opponent. Taking Ergia back out into staff form, he turned around at just the right time to witness the fireball explode where he had just stood, lighting up the surroundings as it did so.

Dammit. Since when did he need to close in on his enemy?

I'll throw in a Camelia. Haven't had the opportunity to do much with her lately.
