Gritting his teeth at the physical strain, Setsuna spun around in a glowing circle of death, every movement leaving glowing afterimages that would be disorienting to any viewer, his blade swirling and dancing in and out. This couldn't last for long, though--his left shoulder was screaming under the weight of both his shield and his unconscious teammate.

It really didn't help when the sole source of light was sent flying toward him, undoubtedly portraying him as a tasty snack. Groaning inwardly, he made an attempt to kick the scroll away, while backing up under the pressure of the overwhelming horde, still avoiding the chains that Anna seemed to be flinging around, and keeping more of those things off him in an endless repetition of swish-swish-stab. He was aiming to eventually deliver both his load and the scroll (hopefully still functional) through the tunnel while simultaneously keeping himself safe. Much, much easier said than done.

Setsuna deflected Calen's quip with a slight wave of his hand, the other already holding up Taro. Man was he heavy. Feeling a slight twinge of respect for Calen being able to carry three people down with his semblance, there was no way that he couldn't at least keep Taro safe. Pulling his sword out from it's place on his hip, he shuffled the deadweight on his left shoulder and charged up, ready to rush straight in and wipe the path clean. "When I go pink-reddish, wait for me to clear the path, then rush through the gap. I'll stay behind you guys and cover your backside, since Calen has the light."

He stayed still for a few more moments, then abruptly surged forward, his body and aura turning the aforementioned color, disemboweling everything that jumped in his face with his increased speed. He wasn't sure if the light coming from his body was attracting the Grimm; if it was, he was a better target, thus hopefully keeping the others safe. Slicing through even more of the endless horde, he hoped the others were already moving so he could retreat safely.

Tina glanced up from her task (boy, reloading with two revolvers was much harder than it seemed in games) just in time to see a chunk of...something...comedically spinning through the air like a UFO and smacking the Grimm a new one. Not much she could do to capitalise on the chance but keep jamming bullets into the chamber as fast as possible. Make no mistake, when she was done, that Grimm was going down.

 So so so so sorry, I completely blanked out. Do please PM me to rant about my dereliction of posts if I take such a "break" like this again.

"What, did you expect me to just let that thing go with Anna? I'm not about to make it two members down, dammit!" Setsuna protested in self-defense of his actions, using his shield to smack any Grimm out of his path, making his way back toward the group. Once regrouped, he drew two of the shortest bits and started stabbing away at anything in reach. He could tell Calen was ticked off, and his words did ring true; jumping into a cave wasn't one of his best ideas, so he silently accepted defeat and mentally prepared for any abuse that might be thrown his way.

It didn't take a scroll to tell that Calen was lagging in both aura and fatigue. Carrying two people plus himself must have put significant strain on his body. With that in mind, he hastily formulated a plan. "We need to get out of this. When we move, and hopefully soon, I'll take over carrying Taro, and try to clear a path via my semblance. Aye or nay?" he shouted over the noise, mainly at Calen as he didn't feel right ordering people around who didn't like being told what to do.

(Grimm killed: barely enough to hold their ground)

You're not the only one in that boat, Nathan. A thousand apologies. Let's get this show on the road.

The ground was much closer than what Setsuna had expected, causing him to be completely unprepared when the Grimm shook him off. Landing on the floor with the air knocked out of him, he lay there looking at pitch darkness, breathing heavily in an attempt to regain his footing. While he was doing so, however, a dim flash of red caught his attention, and instinct kicked in, groping for his weapons. Thankfully, they were both close by, and he staggered to his feet, trying to find his teammates. "Guys? There's more than just us in these caves. Where are you two anyway?" he called toward Calen's voice.

Kei was in the process of fully drawing his rapier when abnormal sounds reached his ear. Looking down, his rapier initially looked fine, but upon unsheathing the full length of one of his dust shafts, that small movement caused the entire thing to drop from the handle. That, and Acero's thoughts and shouts confirmed his suspicion that Vermillion was the source of this...mess. Well, time to experiment.

Quickly redrawing his ink lance, he hesitantly swung it in the air, channeling his semblance and painting the word . To others, it was a jumbled mess, but to him it meant Repair. Sending the power at Acero's rusted arm and weapon lying on the floor, he watched as it slowly returned to it's original state. "Acero! I fixed your arm! Fall back and let me take this!" he shouted, sliding the armaments across the floor and chasing it's owner.

I'll add in the aura levels when we're well and truly in the fight.

A). So long as you make it clear what you are asking for, and making it as polite as your normal posts, I don't see why anyone would object-unless, of course, they have a personal reason why. In that case, I guess you could omit that character from the stats or mark them down as "Not included for reasons", etc.

B). Personally I'm fine with it, but if they found it sensitive they would have refused you on part A already, I think. Making it anonymous is a good idea.

C). A few questions here, feel free to use or simply chuck aside as you will:

Would your character, if given the choice, still attend their current academy (if legible), join Beacon/ other academies, or leave altogether? And if so, what would they pursue?

Battle styles (Hit/run, camper, brute force, swift strikes, buffs/debuffs, harassment, tank)?

Tieren ducked the straight punch, letting it flash past his right ear, while bringing the rifle-bat-weapon around from the redirected path, going for a side swing to her ribcage, trying to wind her and fully commit to the duel. If it hit, he would probably drop the rifle (again-whoever owned the weapon would probably have to get a new one) and close in with the remaining dagger; if she deflected the hit like she did multiple others, well, he'd have to wing it from there.

Sorry, don't think I explained it well enough. His family doesn't like any hunter from their family using technical upgrades, hence the argument, but is fine with other people doing whatever they want, because it's none of their business. Only Dylandy descendants (including Graham) are included in this rule. So as long as they believe Graham is using the unmodified tachi, they have no qualms with letting him attend Beacon.

Oh, np, was away on a trip...with no wifi. Last paragraph is already added in (his family's creed only extends to descendants, not anyone else, or they would have arguments with the whole world. Also, Graham hid the truth fro, his family, so they still think he has the original unmodified sword.)

While Gwylan and Aurora lunged for the Death Stalker, Tina kept running, past the claws, and jumped onto the tough outer shell, before grabbing hold of the armored tail and shooting all 12 rounds of Dust bullets into the cracks between each plate of armor.

Flame, ice, electricity and bits of bone erupted from the chinks in the armor, but unfortunately the tail stayed intact. Whether it could still use the stinger, Tina couldn't tell, but she thought it wise to bail before something bad happened, leaping off and starting to reload.

Removed harness.

Added section on explanation. Bit lackluster in my opinion so I might come back to that.

Added period of transition, and unlocked aura protection before transition to metal sword.

Removed 5% stamina.

Clarified butterfly tricks only with tanto.

Added section for dust (Only releases energy/dust abilities upon contact with any surface, does not use up effect if it doesn't touch anything)

Not sure if the last paragraph is supposed to be there in your last post.

Tieren was already backpedalling when his shots missed, so when the right hook turned into a left, he was caught off guard, but not in any danger of getting hit. He changed his grip on the rifle to resemble more of a bat, while winding up and delivering a heavy blow to Aegis's midriff.

(Heavy swing: 9%)

I'll run through your points one by one.

No color reference.

Unfortunately, no image for symbol nor character. I don't have the skill to draw the character nor the money to commish a artist, though I would really like to.

Harness is there to prevent his arm from taking extensive muscle injuries. No basis, just there to make it realistic.

Somewhere in the site's history, the Great War is renamed to the Greyed War to link it to the real thing. Not sure where I read it, but I can change it back if it doesn't turn up. Yes there's only one tachi. Yes only one hunter at a time. Techniques improved over time as each generation added more to the fighting style, but basis stayed roughly the same.

Changed training age to 10. Note that sparring with a blunt metal sword. Added semblance unlocking during training. Added short section to explain how heirloom was retrofitted (in secret, family believes he's still using unmodified version). No, family does not argue with other people using new-fangled gadgets, just their own. Age should be changed as well.

Added section to describe stamina usage.

Made it more clear in combat section. He can fight against axes/hammers, not use them. For the butterfly knife, he simply retracts the blade until it fits the length of a normal one, then just twirls it around. Added section on team fighting.

Changed length of tachi. Ran weapon past Xarias a week or so ago and he gave the OK, despite mentioning that it WAS similar to Adam's. However, sheath does not double as a rifle, dust charges only used to boost sword swing velocity, cannot shoot sword like a projectile.
