The sudden movement left the two beowolves trying to move away from the flurry of motion, trying to cover one another. As the staff strike came in from one side, the beast ducked down, attempting to move out the way, but still taking a glancing blow that raked into the tough bone, getting somewhat jammed into it. However, it doesn't manage to dodge the following slam from the giant glowing hand, being pushed into the ground with a yowl. Its partner growls, trying to take advantage of the two temporarily motionless hunters, leaping over the other alpha and trying to bite down onto Juno's shoulder, then barrel into Brook.


The constant flames keep the beowolves away from Michael, forming a natural barrier against them. If natural counted as shredded and ignited fire dust lining the ground like napalm, burning any of them that tried to push their luck away. Reyva's more aggressive movements quickly dispatch the nearby Grimm, but they keep trying to move together and back, trying to block their passage to the Alphas, growling and waiting till the hunters moved before making any response.

He practically glared at Juno at his amused statement, but gave a small nod. "Yes. Even the special stuff. Caja took it all. That costs a month's worth of fees from helping out at the Dust store." Unlike Juno, he did not look amused at all. He glanced over at the talkative AI, but copied Juno and blanked it out, waiting for the others to get there.

Samuel similarly ignored the others as they entered, mumbling quietly to himself as he fidgeted with something on his scroll. He twitched slightly at Juno's first sentence, lowering said device to look over at their team leader. He shrugged at the comment pointed at him, going back to the scroll, then having to put it down with a noise of exasperation as he was called up.

Pushing himself to his feet, Ashen Howl still attached as a bump on his back over the back-ripped hoodie, he stumbled slightly as he walked down the stairs, moving over to the arena with a lazy gait. He picked up Staccato and Encore as he went, the chain-linked blades giving a light ringing noise as he span them round, holding them by the chain just below the handle, waiting for Cerise to follow over. He may as well let off some steam. Staring at Juno for a moment, remembering the comment he made, the faunus gritted sharp teeth together, before releasing a breath. He wanted to see something more serious? Fine.

He started swaying from side to side gently, briefly moving to flick on the music again. He could do serious. Just wasn't sure if Juno actually knew what he was asking for.

The immediate foes around Revya were shot down, and the others chose wisely to back off further, retreating towards the pack leaders in a group, trying to cut off the two from getting to their allies. A few stray wolves tried to move in closer, taking their chances against the two hunters despite how many of their kind they had just taken down in an effort to hold them off.


The rather loud booming sound coupled with the previous fire left the two smarter Grimm aware of where the two had quickly gone two; and neither were they quite stupid enough to take the immediate attacks to the face. Breaking apart from each other a small distance, avoiding the powerful but straight-lined attack of Juno that left a crater where it hit, they both moved back in an effort to avoid the rubble. Brook had slightly more luck: the greater range of her weapon clipped one of the two, leaving a large cut across the beast's hide. Yowling in annoyance and pain, they moved back together, now slightly more distinguishable by the ghastly red mark on the side of one. They seemed to be reassessing their opponents carefully.

Not responding to Verdant, Samuel quickly descended the stairs towards the training room; he was taking the more traditional path back this time. It helped that the corridors were fairly bare at this time of day, and most of the other students stayed out of his general path. Keeping his breaths steady despite the quiet static noise still coming from his aura, he pushed open the door to the training room, not looking right at their team leader as he took a seat.

Grumbling as he lent down, Samuel rummaged around for a moment before something clicked quietly underneath. Pulling open the hidden compartment he'd installed, the draw came out, and the precious, precious coffee was reveal-

Blinking, the faunus' ears tilted in confusion as all that was in the draw was a piece of paper. Was it the wrong one? The one to the left had his blueprints and small devices, the one to the right had his high-volatility dust supplies that Juno would probably kill him for if his leader knew he had, and this one had his precious in it. Imported coffee he gets once a year. Super-strong and slightly sweet. The best stuff. Maybe he'd-

Turning the slip of paper over, he froze.

'ty for the coffee. dunno why u left it under here, tasted weird but was chill. left u a tenner for it.'
- Caja

Samuel stayed completely still for a few seconds more, before his arm twitched hard enough that the drawer smacked into the bed with a fairly loud thump. Slowly placing it to the ground, a faint sound of static filled the room. Samuel slowly got to his feet, expression blank, and walked towards the door, ignoring the two other teammates having small conversation.

The door was promptly blown off its hinges with a burst of noise as he continued walking down the corridor, back towards the training room.

"They'll be alright. Been 'n worse situations than this'n." The gruff voice replied, listening to the radio chatter as he let the people who were hired for this do their jobs. Better to save the ammo if they needed it rather than fire a few meaningless shots now. Watching as the nearby beowolves backed off from the flames or were burnt away, he barked through Brook's command to the rest of the men into the comms, before firing another quick volley of shots to cover the woman as she made her way towards the larger Grimm. "Ain't paid enough for this shit..."


The shield blocking a few snapping jaws as some of the less experienced Grimm tried to take advantage of Reyva's downed state, the following blast of ice dust from the tall hunter froze the unlucky monsters up close and forced the others to back off as more were shot down by the icicles and rocks launched by the kinetic attack. A few more tried to break the line, but kept being pushed back by the combined defense, and eventually they backed off to the edges of the confrontation.


Growling and flinching as a volley of bullets hit its armoured back, the two alphas quickly stopped their fighting, jumping to the side and glaring at the origin of the shots. They had a covering of bones going down each of their legs, ending in elongated claws, and a number of spikes mirrored on each side of their spines, though some of the bullets had inflicted light wounds to the side of one where the spikes hadn't covered. Showing more cooperation than most of the other beowolves' mindless leaping, the two rejoined, prowling next to each other in a way that it was almost hard to tell which inky black body part belonged to which.

Walking towards the kitchen, Samuel heard faint voices approaching the room's entrance before keys were pushed into the lock. Wincing slightly - he didn't particularly want to deal with anyone right now - he instead went straight into the kitchen. Opening a cabinet with a chain, he fiddled around within as the two others entered the room, mumbling a vague greeting as he searched for his satchels he used in the coffee maker. Finding the packaging, he pulled it out, and took a glance inside. One milk packet and no coffee to go with it. Sighing, he put it back in, reaching down into a drawer to take out some coffee powder and make it himself. Not quite as nice, but better than noth-

Aaand empty again.

"For fuck's sake..." The faunus murmured quietly to himself, pushing the drawer closed with a little more force than necessary and quickly passing Verdant who had come in to grab the ingredients without a passing glance. He had some quality beans that he was saving, but they were kinda pricy. He needed some of the damn stuff, though. Passing by the front door, he gave an absent-minded wave to the newbie as he headed towards his bed.

Musing whether he wanted to bother actually walking all the way over to the dorm and possibly bumping into one of his teammates or other - well, not quite friends, but acquaintances at least - and get stuck in the seemingly required conversations and greetings, or having to bother doing some exercise, Samuel slowly pushed open one of the windows to the hall. A quick look out got him wincing at the brightness of the morning sun. How did people manage getting up at this time regularly? Masochists.

Deciding that the thought of people who actually liked getting up at this time put him too off social interaction, he twisted his head, looking for the familiar- ah, there we go. The rest of his team - well, baring Cerise, she hadn't even been in the dorm as far as he knew, had made a bit of a fuss over him just casually grabbing a metal rod and hammering it through the wall, but damn it it made for an awesome elevator, aaand it meant he didn't have to bother talking to a single person if he wanted to wander off somewhere. They can go take their safety precautions, their 'what the fuck are you doing's and their actually decent social interaction skills and shove it up their collective-

Thoughts for another time, perhaps, when he wasn't quite so frustrated by a lack of coffee.

Rungs unwinding from his arm, a chain snapped out, and with a noticeable thunk wrapped around the completely safe and not at all unstable method of transportation, before he yanked himself upwards with a jerk. Good thing that aura existed, otherwise he'd have probably broken his spine by doing that or something. Making it up to the windowsill, he pulled it open, sliding into the still empty dorm. Verdant and the newbie seemed to be taking a while.

Letting out a quiet sigh as he walked down the corridor, Samuel gave a few half-hearted greetings to a few early-risers he knew as he followed his mental map of the academy towards the canteen. Hopefully they'd be up and running for fresh coffee already, though it was a bit early. Well, worse comes to worse, he had a few other options. Cranking the music up in his headphones, he pushed on the door to a still-dark hall.

Well, that answers one question. No food or drink here then, yet. He'd just use the machine; it was fairly cheap and still didn't require him to make it himself. Walking over, the teen flicked his scroll over the payment area, then yoinked one of the cheap plastic cups and put it underneath. There was a faint gurgling sound, and then nothing happened. Frowning, he poked the button for black coffee again, paused, then whacked the side of the machine. A clunking sound echoed, another gurgling started, and then a huge jet of vaguely bean-flavoured water shot out and spurted all over the cup, knocking it onto the floor and splashing some onto Samuel's jacket.

There was another pause and a noticeable twitch in the man's arm before he slumped slightly. No matter, he could just get some cold coffee from the vending machine. Walking to the neighbouring vendor, he took a coin out of his pocket and put it in, pressing the button for iced coffee. Hearing the whirring of the drinks being pushed along, he let his lips turn upwards, watching as the carton- oh.

Watching as the carton got stuck on the edge of the row.

Samuel blinked, expression blank, before grasping the sides of the machine. He stared at the offending drink as the machine began to shake slightly from his semblance, the vibrations speeding up as his impatience grew with the lack of movement. A few cracking noises from the frontal glass later, he let out a long breath, releasing his hold on the machine. No good; it would cost him far more to pay for the damages than he'd get out of it. Maybe he could use the coffee machine in the kitchen instead. He's sure that the staff wouldn't mind so long that he clears up after himsel-

Ah. Doors completely locked.

God damnit. To the dorm it is. He'd have to use his own.

"Thank whatever deity you'd like to." The fox faunus murmured to himself, chains re-wrapping themselves around his arms as he promptly passed the rest of the waiting team. He could finally get some peace and quiet for a bit, maybe grab a quick snooze, and get his fix. He wasn't, uh, addicted or anything. Nothing of the sort. Coffee just... suited his tastes, that was all!

Attempting to distract himself from his annoyance with his own thoughts, he gave a small smile of amusement as he left, quickly heading towards the cafeteria. Coffeequest had just begun.

Nearly snapping at Juno's advice, Samuel had just gone with the charge-and-see-what-happens strategy. He had nothing wrong with Verdant, but god if he wasn't a little annoyed at this stage. Giving an awkward smile at the downed archer, the teen patted his teammate on the back. "Sorry, dude. Not one for cheapshots but I'm not exactly a long-range fighter, I was gonna have to close in sooner or later."

He then turned to face Juno, with a look that could only be described as a cross between a half-hearted glare and a completely blank look. Their team leader hadn't exactly been quiet, and it wouldn't have helped even if he had been. "On the other hand, you are a colossal ass. I have four extra limbs, and that's still not enough middle fingers to express my current sentiments. Can I go get coffee now or at least can I spar again. Give me something here to work with, Juno." Samuel deadpanned, wincing as a few pieces of rubble fell from the damaged wall.

Samuel heard the drawing of the arrow before anything else. Knowing what would come next, he pulled his arm back in preparation, Ashen Howl fully unwrapping and the bottom two chains jabbing into the ground with loud clunks. Now anchored, the fox faunus waited for a moment before starting to throw his arm forward as the arrow flew forwards, one of the upper chains moving to knock it out of the way.

However, he wasn't expecting the concussive blast that emitted from it, knocking off his own aim. As he lost his grasp of the attack, a sound like booming thunder echoed around the room, a shimmering of the air flying forwards to the left of Verdant and smashing through the ice wall where it connected - but missing the target himself.

It then continued onwards to thump into the wall of the room itself, leaving a large series of cracks criss-crossing around the impact site.

Using the chains to pull him back up to his feet from where he'd been pushed over from the arrow and his own attack, Samuel blinked a few times at the furrowing of the ground and the wall. "Uh... whoops?" He sheepishly stated. Deciding the best action was to ignore it and the possible consequences as best as possible, he ran forwards at the hole in the icy barrier that had been made, metal rungs forming an impromptu shield in front of him.

Cursing quietly to himself as Verdant notched an arrow, Samuel flicked his left hand, the chain from the bottom of the held sword quickly pulling the other one into the path of the arrow. The blast pushing him away, he skidded backwards before gaining purchase on the floor below him again, blinking as a sudden wall of ice formed.

As Verdant's hurried request carried over the makeshift defense, Samuel gave a lazy grin. "Ah, well, y'see I kind of have to fire it after I've started it up, or else it kind of goes boom on me instead. Happy to charge it a little more, though!" He shouted his reply, his hand starting to quiver slightly from the soundwaves bouncing.

'Maybe I should be somewhat careful where I aim this. Holding it for a bit longer than usual.' The faunus mused, before thinking again over how his day had gone so far. Chains slowly uncoiling from his arms and raising up behind his back, he shrugged to himself.

Following the huntress as she smashed through the nearby Grimm with her staff, Willow took his own pot-shots at any trying to crawl up behind the pair, the bark of his revolver ringing out. "Well, lady, you seem to-" The mercenary paused, jumping back from a too close-for-comfort claw swipe. Cursing quietly, he let out a breath he wasn't aware he was holding as the offending foe was quickly set alight by some mechanism in Brook's weapon. "...have an idea of what to do, so lead the way." He finished, taking the short pause in conflict to reload the chamber of his sidearm. It looked like they'd made a small pathway to the rest, but beowolves were still jumping out of the undergrowth with vigor.


Shying away from the swathe of flames, Reyva's rough landing was covered for by Michael as the nearby beasts backed up, growling and slowly trying to surround the two hunters-in-training. They watched the pair intently, waiting for a sudden movement for the fight to re-ignite.


"Alright, alright! Calm down, hotshot." A gruff voice replied, the soldier in question and the others joining up and taking the route that would likely have the highest chance of survival; following the person trained specifically in killing the current enemy. Assault rifles letting out brief streams of bullets at the monsters trying to nip at the heels of Juno while he was already fighting an enemy, they slowly moved up behind him as the group tried to reform.

"Few holes? Only thing that needs holes here are these Grimm!" Another replied to Michael, a tint of amusement marring his voice despite their current situation. The group had fought Grimm before; it was an occupational hazard in their line of work, just not one that they particularly favoured. There was a reason that people went through five or so years of training before being officially recognised, after all.


The wave of Grimm seemed neverending at first, but on closer look there were less appearing; it was just the number of them already in the camp making it difficult to see how many new ones were stepping up to the challenge. Behind the latest group, two larger wolves with far more spine-like growths on their backs walked into the camp, nipping at each other with short growls before turning to face the fight itself, heading towards the foes up ahead.

He may have said it from under his breath, but Verdant had apparently forgot exactly what semblance Samuel possessed. Twitching slightly, Samuel let out a long breath, before focusing his visible eye on his teammate. "Not cool, bro." He stated simply, dropping his right sword to the ground with a clank, leaving it hanging on the chain of the other. Raising his hand up, he clicked his fingers together before grasping the air, catching the sound in his hand. He hadn't shown Verdant this particular trick before, so hopefully it should teach him not to trash-talk him right after all the fiascoes that had occurred in the past few weeks. To be honest, the teen was a little bit on edge right now, and now the one guy who didn't normally flame him was. He hadn't said anything purposefully harmful to anyone! Well, maybe except Juno, but come on need that coffee.

Standing still, his right hand began to shake slightly as his aura trickled downwards from the buildup, turning slightly to hide it behind the held blade. He waited for Verdant to make the first move, not taking his sight off the archer. "If you're so anxious to finish already, you can start it, then."
