Mauve let out an annoyed noise as she was met with the point of Saffron's sword in the her upper left back. Aerial and acrobatic movements were so much easier with Grimm, the large yet usually slower creatures. Maybe lay off of that now, it was all about trying new styles, right? Move around but less flips and such.

As Mauve landed, she quickly spun clockwise and provided another kick, this time to the sword in the area in-between her hands with the new half-swording technique in an effort to knock away the blade again. The moment her right was on the floor, she kicked again with her left at Saffron's side before darting again behind her opponent to deliver another backhanded thwack with her blade to the girl's side/back.

Mauve easily evaded the first overhead strike, it being wild and an overhead strike, but it opened her up for some of Saffron's follow-ups. The girl was quick with her blades. But what about her feet? Mauve hadn't seen her use them at all during the battle, and suddenly her tactics changed. She had to get closer though, Saffron was wisely trying to keep her at a distance now.

Mauve quickly produced another fire Dust arrow from the quiver on her back, throwing it as best she could at Saffron's feet, though to be honest the trajectory wasn't the best, Mauve wasn't really planning on hitting anything with it, simply distracting her opponent for a few moments. If it caught something though, well, that wouldn't hurt either. She then met the next short strike with her own weapon and advanced forward, pushing the blade away and down with it. A quick aerial placed her to the side of Saffron, where Mauve spun to strike her again on the left upper arm then performed a high spinning hook kick to her upper chest and shoulder area.

Lien struggled as her still creepy opponent pulled her closer and started violently kneeing her in the stomach. Once more, she followed his wishes and let him draw the bat too close for her to effectively wield it, instead elbowing his hard at the base of his throat. She raise a leg to block his and with her other hand, Lien punched him in the face, chains and all. Arrogant guys like him generally didn't like anyone targeting the moneymaker. She followed up with a kick from the same leg that was currently blocking Vermilion's to hit his side with her shin.

"Oh I wish," responded Aurora. "Unfortunately, I left my pest repeller in my luggage, silly me." She kept running on after Gwylan, thinking that they would never be able to catch up to Nero and the Deathstalker if they didn't speed up or she didn't slow down.

"Hey Nero!" she hollered out. "Slow down! Or like, double back!" Maybe not the most graceful, smart, or creative plan... but it'd do for the moment. She just hoped there were no more Grimm wandering around the maze at the moment.

Mauve mentally berated herself as she realized that Saffron was the one who would benefit from the distance as her weapon had more reach. She allowed herself to be forced back to evade the slashes from her opponent's greatsword, knowing that trying to parry or deflect the attack wasn't an option considering her lesser strength and smaller weapon. She was, however, still shallowly cut by the first slash, the girl was quick with blades. But that greatsword was undoubtedly less graceful. And Mauve was fast.

As soon as the second slash came down though, Mauve utilized the undoubtedly slower-even if just by a little-moves due to the weapon's form to dash in up close, where the greatsword would be more awkward to use. There, she swung around Saffron's right to deliver a hard thwack with the blunt blade, a kick to the back of her knee, and again with her blade on her opponent's left upper arm.

Positions now reversed, Mauve's eyes darted to the shield lying on the ground, now on her opponent's side as she'd switched places.

Lien's eyes widened as Vermilion took advantage of her grip on the chain, entangling her right hand in it then kneeing her in the stomach and headbutting her in the shoulder. She gasped in partial shock as he did so, slightly unnerved by him.

She recovered her wits quickly though, going along with Vermilion's yank and swinging the bat hard at his head, continuing to do so repeatedly. Aggravated swinging seemed to be a universal move, really. Her strikes really were less to actually harm than to keep him from attacking further. He obviously had the upper hand currently and to be honest she didn't really know what to do to even the odds. Getting rid of the chains would be a great start, but seeing as she really didn't know how to do that, Lien just kept rhythmatically swinging the bat at his face, hoping that she hit something. Who needed fancy moves with a bat?

Mauve jerked to her left to evade the hilt strike, as she'd rather take damage than get stunned or distracted. She paid for this by slowing down her reaction time to Saffron's stab, which, though it didn't strike complete center, did make contact in her side. To minimize damage and time lost, Mauve twisted her body and advanced closer, utilizing her blade to deliver a hard strike to Saffron’s own, then delivering a frontal kick to Saffron's legs while simultaneously throwing the arrow forward at her face and detonating the Dust inside, hoping to catch the student off guard with two attacks at once. As to not get caught in the explosion herself, Mauve quickly retreated as fast as she could until she was a few feet away from Saffron.

'Apple O'Hara' didn't seem to ring a bell with any of the people, unfortunately. Mission not over yet. Well, Aurora had long decided that it wouldn't be over until they got as many people as they could out. So... mission not passed yet. Because this was being graded, right.

Aurora smiled at Gwylan as he called her pretty, then clapped her hands to address everyone now that they were out of the bunker. "Alright, from here you're going to need to go by yourself, out of the maze. We will take care of the Deathstalker, so that's no problem. And as for the rest of the Grimm, if you stick to the path then you won't meet any of them."

She walked over to the hole they'd carved. "Just squeeze through here and start walking left. Wherever you see a bunch of slash marks is where we turned, so go that way, alright?" A smile graced her features, the one that she always used to placate her siblings. "I'm sorry we can't personally escort you out," she said evenly. "But there are a lot of people here that need to be saved and we want to get as many out as we can, alright? Stay on the path."

As the group started to go through the hedges, Aurora focused on her team. "Alright, bunker number one over with. Tina, use your semblance to figure out where Nero is. Gwylan, you go first like always, for now just follow the trail that Nero and the Grimm left, go go go!"

Jade raised an eyebrow at Nathan as he spoke, realizing that he clearly misunderstood. "The fisherman's pass is for humans. The Aceans just climb up the face of the cliffs. They don't take the stairs." She huffed in amusement and turned back to face the ocean. "It's easier for them now that the water level's so high, they don't have to climb as much out of water. But either way I would think that the climb is where they'd be vulnerable."

"Tides? Uh..." Jadyn hesitated, somewhat embarrassed that she had no idea. "I'm really not sure... " But after a few moments of awkward silence, she remembered that there was a way to find out at least if it was high tide or low tide at the moment. She crouched down to look at where the water met the cliffs, seeing that there was a pretty thick dark area on the cliff wall above the sea. "Well according to that, the sea level can be quite a bit higher so I'd say it isn't high tide right now. Maybe not all the way to the top of that water mark down there, but close."

Mauve nodded absently rather than respond as the general was quickly returning to them. She could draw her own conclusions about him, but she wanted to assess how good Russell was with the fine details of social cues and the such. It wasn't much to go off on, really, she'd have to test him on that more some time later. He at least didn't seem as inept as Nathan and Ismael. That was good.

The man beside the general looked to be fairly young, surprisingly. Dark-skinned and dark-haired, tall enough, and face lacking any telltale wrinkles or the touch of age. A quick look at his hands and neck confirmed Mauve's thoughts, he was probably in his mid-twenties. He, like the general, was wearing a more milatary-like outfit, though his obviously showed his rank to be lower.

"This," the general said, gesturing to the man, "is my second-in-command and adopted son, Jack."

'Jack' gave Mauve a quick salute, though it seemed to be more of a friendly gesture than a military thing. "Yeah, I basically micromanage people here on a smaller scale. My father's men are currently sprinkled around the North, East, and South borders, with a few more on the East because of obvious reasons. The others are attending to the wounded and helping people onto the aircrafts to evacuate."

"We plan on keeping watch over those borders while you take care of the Acean threat, though backup might be needed from you on the East if we get something we can't handle easily enough." He smiled. "Mostly though, we were told to focus our efforts on making sure everyone gets out. The protecting part is up to you. Is there anything specific that you'd like us to do?"

Mauve turned to Russell, tilting her head questioningly. "Do you have any suggestions, Mr. Omhiaba?" It might've seemed weird to some, but Mauve liked to feel out new people, not just have them say what they were and weren't good at when some matters could simply be lack of experience or trying. She hoped that the military presence would evoke something out of Russell, or at the least make him feel like he was in his own element.

Lien passively wondered whether her choice said something about her vanity as she raised the bat, letting it get entangled and either rather stupidly or cleverly stepped on the knife to contain the explosion's outward... explosion. Instead of perhaps trying to evade, but her hands were a bit full at the moment. A soft noise escaped from the back of her throat in response to this particular development.

Still determined, Lien took advantage of the bat being entangled by jerking it backwards hard with her left hand and taking ahold of the remaining chain in Vermilion's left hand. She ignored the pain and pulled it taught, both of the holds allowing her to pull her opponent close and unleash as many kicks as she could to his abdomen at the cost of the damage done to her hand.

Captain Vale much? Mauve quickly dodged right, then reached across to parry the slashes with less grace than she would've liked, missing the second slash and scraping the tip of the blunt 'blade' on the ground. She turned that particular mistake into her next move, leaning on it for partial support and throwing herself into a whirling kick aimed at Saffron's upper torso, finishing in a crouch and sweeping the weapon parallel to the ground.

The moment she saw him pull his arm back, Lien was already moving to evade the thrown knives, a feat that wasn't quite that hard considering thrown knives traveled much slower than a bullet or arrow and that they were all thrown at once at the same place. "I think you're supposed to throw those one at a time," she said awkwardly, regarding her opponent's attempt at using the weapon.
Equally awkwardly as an attempt to stall, Lien transformed the bat into its tertiary rifle form, preferring not to provide any commentary as Vermillion had. He was still kind of creepy, in an arrogant-rich-person-who'd-lock-you-in-his-basement kind of way. She hopefully held the rifle how it was supposed to be held, and while a little voice in the back of her head reminded her that these things were typically used for ranges longer than this, it was a gun and that was good enough. She loaded and shot six Dust ammunition... things... in Vermillion's general direction, emptying the cartridge. Disappointingly and expectedly, half were way off thanks to poor aim and recoil that she should’ve expected.
She immediately shook her head and reverted the weapon back into its bat form, slowly advancing closer to Vermillion. Better to simply get on with it.

Lien flipped through all three forms of the weapon she was given, slightly nervous at how exactly she was going to use it. She didn't really work with weapons much, hand-to-hand was where she excelled. But by the look of the edges of those chains... Maybe that wouldn't be the best idea. So she didn't toss the weapons, not quite yet, for now she kept it in its primary form. Blunt force and the absense of risking hurting herself would do her best now.

As for her opponent, he seemed creepy. Not like she hadn't seen creepy people before, but still. Partly because she was a little wary about looking like a fool, charging into battle like that with a bat and all and partly because of actual reasoning, Lien decided to not take the creepy student's offer. "Um, thanks? But... I insist. You first." With that, she moved into a defensive position, awaiting her opponent's next move.

Mauve resisted the urge to make a face at her weapon. A bow. Fantastic, seeing as her archery skill was nonexistant at best. And worst, because it was a scale of absolute zero to absolute zero. Sighing, she shifted it into its secondary form, a standard enough blade. It was longer than she was used to, but the width of her normal blades made the two weapons close enough in weight that it wouldn't take too long to get used to. As for the handle, she tossed it to her right, the bow and katana forms would be of no use to her. The blade she kept in her right, dominant hand, while in her left... a fire Dust arrow. Creativity. This'd be interesting.

Her opponent seemed to be quite happy with her weapons, a greatsword and circular shield. That could mean that she was a blade wielder normally, too bad Mauve didn't know what kind, that would've helped to even the odds that currently were not. Or perhaps she was a shield user. Or even a hand-to-hand combatant if you thought creatively. Perhaps one of those annoying all-around fighters, like Nathan. At worst Saffron could also utilize that particular combo normally too. 'Enough worrying.'

She gave her oppnent a small smile and a curt nod in return to her words. "Well, I'm hoping it doesn't come down to luck," Mauve responded smoothly. Still smiling softly, the girl twirled her blade around a few times, hoping to disguise the trick she'd learnt to get used to different weights faster as simply dallying around. As she finished, Mauve moved into a defensive position, waiting for Saffron to make the first move.
