Aurora didn't really know how to feel about how her team was handling it. On one hand, that Deathstalker was very much dead. On the other, some things were a bit overkill. No need to beat a dead horse. Or scorpion Grimm thingy. She relayed this opinion to the team, as she'd regained some of her strength back. "Y'know, no harm in stopping. We might be here for a while and stuff is limited. Especially for Tina and Nero because you two use ammunition and we can't exactly call Titan over for a restocking. Applies to me too to be honest."

"Well at least it's over with," Aurora said lightly. "Allllllrighty so now that that's taken care of, we can move onto the next one. It's... not too far from here, still in the maze, lower right. This little scorpion chase actually led us closer to the entrance, which is a good thing." She squinted a bit at the map on her scroll, pausing to figure out a path. "Yeah, yeah. The short path we need to take to get there is accessible just"-this word she dragged out a bit-"over this left wall right here."

"So we can either climb or hack our way through again. Your choice."

Aww, don't you worry, real life takes priority. Everyone gets busy, just ask everyone who's had me in a thread.

Mauve smiled at the older girl. "I very much appreciate the honor and would be honored to join you. Thanks." She walked a few paces to pick up the weapon she'd discarded before continuing to speak to Saffron. "To be honest I'm not much for watching duels or sparring either. Even Vytal ones, I find them a bit dull. Not much for the idea of watching fights for sport, though I have nothing against doing so for educational reasons. Similarly with participating for those same reasons."

As she exited the arena with Saffron, Mauve remembered something the student had said during the offer. "Atlas you say? You'll have to catch me up, it's been a while since I've been there."

Gonna ask the same question I did to Monster plus a little extra. How does Gwylan feel about each of his team members at the moment? Who does he like and dislike most? Who does he think has the most potential? Was it right to choose Aurora for leader?

 I am so so so so so so sorry for not posting earlier I have really no excuse, please PM me if I forget for so long like this. Even if it's because I've been busy I can at least tell you for how long and just-argh, sorry sorry sorry sorry...

Also EMPs are not that hard to get your hands on even if you're not a crime boss. Those of course are usually more short-range but this is RWBY and he is a crime boss with money and connections.

Prim noticed the other scary black-clothed dude that went into the trailer exit out probably in the hopes of escaping. THat would be the logical reasoning, who would want to stay somewhere when their whole operation was being disrupted and hopefully going to be outed. Too bad for that guy though, because Prim was so not going to let him get away. She drew a fire arrow and lit up his escape route, in the process of readying more. "Hey guys, big bad guy, probably important, probably matters a lot, probably could supply some really good information... My arrows can't hold him long, can someone go down and engage him? I mean like, combat, I don't think he needs a fiance or anything, I mean I don't see a ring but he's kinda far away and rings are pretty small and stuff also I mean who would want to be engaged to that dude... Anyway! Someone please go down there. And then maybe check on Ace, I mean the bad guys are out and he's not... I'm actually really worried. I can keep doing my thing up here."

Mauve let out a sharp sound of surprise as her fist didn't connect with a face as expected, but with cold, hard metal. On fire. Thank god for Aura, but still. That hurt. She still saw Saffron draw her blade though, and was quick enough to move and transfer the damage onto her forearm instead of her leg, possibly increasing it through the pushing motion. She was ready for the stab when it came, raising her legs to repeatedly kick the blade back towards Saffron instead of her and hoping that it made contact with the other student.

She'd retreated and was about to start attacking again when Mauve came to a realization about how low her Aura was and decided she'd rather be safe than sorry. They were fighting with fire and blades and explosive arrows, which would be very harmful and potentially lethal to someone with no Aura. "I yield," she said to Saffron, relaxing her pose into a normal stance instead of an 'I'm about to cause you harm' one. "My Aura's pretty low right now and I don't want to risk you or myself crossing the line of Aura loss without the other noticing or while the other can't react fast enough." She smiled. "It was an enjoyable fight, my thanks to you for that. Nice to know I can hold my own against an upperclassman, even if there's only a year's difference between us." In a show of good sport, because Mauve was nothing if not that, she held out her hand for Saffron to shake.

Aura 12%
If the blade is kicked back enough to do damage then you go ahead and decide percentages yourself. Good fight!

In the meanwhile, Mauve sat in one of the seats closer to the front, slightly incognito. Well, not really, she'd just tied up her hair to mostly hide the purple tips and worn sunglasses. Her mother didn't exactly want her there in person and definitely not on camera for obvious reasons, but Mauve was going to support her significant other anyway... With her presence at least because there was no way she was going to hold one of those annoying banners up. Or cheer. Ladies did not cheer in gladiator-esque battles. Or attend gladiator-esque battles at all but such was Remnant and such was tradition. Mauve didn't enjoy these things much, not really, but eh.

Nathan was doing well so far, but being on the receiving side was so much easier than being the attacker. To be totally honest Mauve had mixed feelings as to who would win, skill not included in her thoughts. On one hand if Nathan won then he'd certainly bring himself and in some way their team some glory. But then again if he lost then it would make his earlier... issues... less important as they didn't lead to his victory and he'd already made an impression on the rest of the world, good or bad.

Mauve would do well to remember that Beacon students were oh so fond of making their weapons nice and fancy. Electrical shields? Just another Monday. The clever little move opened her up for Saffron to go to town on, Mauve taking both of the shield bashes and all of the slashes, though the latter she partially deflected. With her own arms, yes, but it did ease some of the damage. This fight was going to draw to a close soon and to be honest it'd been fun, so Mauve really didn't care whether or not she won. Well, not as much as she would usually at least.

Right off the bat Mauve noticed two prime targets, the first being Saffron's nose and the second being her legs. Her concentrated attacks on the latter seemed to have been successful, though she wasn't quite sure why the other student's nose had started bleeded. She didn't exactly remember directing any of her attacks at her face. Deciding the why was currently irrelevant and she shouldn't look a gift horse in the mouth, Mauve resumed her attack. She kicked twice at Saffron's shins, light, really only meant to test exactly how vulnerable they were. In the meanwhile, her arms were up in front guarding her face and she stayed light on her toes, retreating slightly afterwards in the manner of a boxer.

Once she was confident in her ability to deliver Mauve neared the student again, though instead of kicking she actually just punched Saffron in the face. That was followed by a hard kick to the upperclassman's lower shin/ankle area. Granted, this left her fairly open with one of her hands and legs occupied momentarily, but chances had to be taken.

If Merciless MCLS would be an option as well.

Perhaps black for a color? I don't know, but mercy screams white to me, and merciless makes me think the opposite, hence black.

Getting stabbed was not fun, something that Mauve could confirm with even more fervor now. Though she did move a bit so the stab landed on her collarbone more than her throat-getting stabbed in the throat was even less fun-it didn't do much else than displace the attack and the next, letting her get slapped more in the jaw. Still not fun. She was lucky the edge was turned away though, for that didn't just lessen the damage to her aura, but made it easier for her to clasp the blade in-between her wrist and lower palm, then violently throw it back at Saffron's upper torso, hoping her surprise and admittedly lesser strength than her opponent could make it stick.

Fully recovered, Mauve pressed on once more. She stepped in close to her opponent and sort of threw herself onto the shield, grasping the edges and  leaning her weight on the thing so each foot could deliver a stomp to Saffron's upper body. Quickly because however strong the uppperclassman might've been, having the weight of a whole person plus a shield isn't the easiest thing to carry on one arm. As per the hit-and-run she favored, Mauve dropped to the floor, lightly kicking Saffron's shins as she did so, and did a backwards somersault, ending in a low stance slightly reminiscent of a runner's starting one.

Mauve grinned softly at her opponent's good-natured quip, though she was a bit preoccupied with evading the slashes to reply with one of her own. Which was a pity, lost opportunities to be quippy always were in her ever so humble opinion. Last slash deflected via blade, though it did leave her open for a bit too long, Mauve pressed on with more footwork, lightly advancing forward whether or not Saffron took the opportunity herself and delivering several light kicks to the upperclassman's lower legs, specifically the feet and shins.

During that, Mauve gripped her blade in both hands, one on each side. At first this was simply to put something between her and the pesky shield that could be used to slam into her any second. Then, grip staying the same, she slammed the weapon into Saffron's shield to draw attention upwards while she delivered a more powerful kick to her legs.

This was actually turning out to be a pretty fun sparring session, whether or not Mauve turned out to be the winner in the end.

Mauve raised her hand to catch the thrown shield, discovering that it was in fact not as easy on the hand as in the movies, not unless you were Captain Vale or something. The strike Saffron'd snuck in didn't really help that either. Nevertheless, it was caught and Mauve used it to block Saffron's stab, then attempt to hit her in the face with the edge of it. Once again for honorable play and the point of the actual spar's sake, Mauve lightly backed away and threw it back at Saffron, aiming at her torso for both easier catching and some additional damage if it hit.

In the meanwhile, she advanced as lightly as she'd done the opposite, not liking to be far enough that her opponent had the reach advantage.

"Yes, I suppose it would provide us with the advantage. Most if not all of our efforts should be concentrated here when the come, the less that make it up here, the less damage we take and the less casualties." Jadyn nodded absently, mentally patting herself on the back for thinking so logically, normally she was just the brawn.

After thinking for a moment, she shook her head at Nathan's inquiry. "No, that's about it. Let's head North. I'm sure your friend will catch up. At least he better." Not really waiting for any further input, she started walking along the cliff's edge to the right, the Northern forests her destination.

Mauve blinked a bit at Russell's strategy. Well, they already had two strategists on the team, it was okay. He did bring up some fair points but not all of his points were really too solid. The slightly hesitant faces of the military leaders in front would say the same.

"Well," she started, "it would be quite a feat to calm the villagers down when we and they possess the knowledge that the Acean's returning is a certainty. Anything we could say would ultimately be a lie, one that wouldn't be too good considering the villagers are pretty well-informed of the reason they have to pack up." Thinking it over again, she added, "or just meaningless filler. And about the Grimm, perhaps it's just them coming back knowing that it's an easy target? Either way, reassurance will do nothing at this point."

"The medics are our next stop," Mauve confirmed. "We'll see if they need our assistance, though to be honest the supplies shack is on the clinic grounds and I would assume the visiting Valish troops brought extra..." She trailed off and looked inquisitively for confirmation from the two men standing in front of them. They nodded in reply. "Mmm. I don't suspect we could do much there though, it may seem cruel but we can do nothing to help the ones that are too far gone, nor is that our job. They have medics and we may worsen the problem, no? Our focus will be to help people evacuate. The less people that remain, the better." Accompanying her strong words, if you payed close enough attention, was an iron-sharp undertone, bordering on cold. She was leader for a reason...

"Your fire idea is... interesting." Mauve's eyes seemed to twinkle as she smirked haughtily. "Isolated and controlled fire at the borders, not in the trees please, razing the ecosystem is not something I set out to do." Jack laughed at this, finding her quite funny. "Precautions must be taken. Ice dust bordering... it seems interesting, though high risk. I don't know. Really, the only thing that I request is that you help with the Aceans when they come, right off the bat, focus there and keep people on the borders guarding. When a threat comes, then some dealing with the Aceans can move."

The general nodded gruffly. "Agreeable plan, that fire idea will be... discussed further among us." Switching his gaze to Russell, he asked, "What if something does come in from the East though? As the boy said. Your plan for that?"

Mauve hesitated. "It depends on what the threat is, for now, undecided. We will come back later with more input from the teammates scouting, they will be the main strategists. We came here mostly to hear what your plan was." She looked at Russell for any additional thoughts.

Saffron struck quick, but Mauve was no slowpoke. She dodged it with ease, not noticing that it was not the main focus of her opponent. Letting out a huff of air as her knee did indeed buckle, Mauve fell to the ground as per the other student's plan.

She didn't stay there though. Mauve dashed between Saffron's legs, hooking one of them with her own and pulling in the act of getting up from the ground. Now behind her, Mauve elbowed the girl in the back of her neck and stabbed her with the tip of the blunt weapon in her back. While she was still turned and perhaps falling if all went according to plan, or even perhaps if it didn't and Saffron was turning to face her, either worked, Mauve formed a fire Dust arrow and threw it at her.

Doubts were starting to form regarding this guy's sanity.

Lien let out a pained almost-whine as Vermilion's foot connected with her stomach, as a result of it wheezing and delaying her reaction to the whip, which, no surprise, hurt like hell. One lash was taken straight on while the third she partially deflected with her forearm.

She wasn't going to go down without a fight though. Or, preferably, down at all. Whether it was in regards to being tackled or losing the fight in general. Lien whipped around her opponent's form as he charged at her, using the short length of chain she had and dragging it across his shoulder as she did so. Following up was a forceful punch to the back of his head and a foot to his back. Best case, his initial momentum coupled with her kick sent him toppling over, even if that meant taking her down after. Worst case, he just got madder. In both meanings of the word.
