"Yu Nanhai. A pleasure to meet you both." Yu inclines his head in a bow, since standing up to do a proper courtesy would just attract unwanted attention. As a matter of fact, his presence here was already a spotlight shining on him from above. He couldn't linger here for long. "I'm...not sure why I'm here, to be honest. Suppose I wanted to see if anything's changed since I left." He shook his head bitterly, his small eyes downcast. "Nothing has. I cannot say I am surprised either." Yu said.

There's a moment of silence before Yu takes into account where Diana's homeland is, and instantly backtracks. "My profuse apologies, Diana--I assure you I meant no offence to you or your family, wherever they may be. I am afraid my emotions got the better of me." Despite the tone used when referring to Atlas, his voice now carries genuine regret. "...Would you like me to leave?"

Hopefully Sandy didn't think such an attack would work. Even with the increased speed from the grappling hook's momentum it was a simple matter of just lifting Equilibrium up over his head and bracing for impact. As soon as Setsuna felt the increased weight on his shield he heaved it skyward, hopefully throwing Sandy off balance, before raising his sword/rifle and firing the remaining two shots at the skyborne target. That was, assuming Sandy did rise into the air. Otherwise, he'd be firing at naught.

Combat Log:

Not for the first time in his student career Kei cursed the lack of a symbol which increased his jumping height as Infrared's response was just to jump even higher and attack from above. Not being able to correct his course meant that he had to take the slash "head-on", but that also meant when Infrared touched the ground Kei was already landing on the other side. And even if she was now a distance away and beginning to gain higher ground, it wasn't the largest problem in the world.

A quick application of his semblance gave Kei the familiar lightweight feeling of his speed symbol activating, allowing him to close the gap between them rapidly; or at least make it so if she fired a rocket the blast radius would hit her too.

Combat Log:
  ● None

Kei's Stats:
  ● Aura: [█████-----] 58% [8% from overhead slash]
  ● Stamina: [█████████-] 90%

"Oh what the bloody hell." A voice is heard from the doorway as a tall and quite heavily built student enters the room noisily. "The one time I need to bash a few target heads in and there's a blooming lot occupying the place." In his right hand is what can best be described as a gigantic slab of metal welded to a shield, managing to match Jima's Requiem in length at first glance. Striding across the room the boy heads straight for the group, previous plans seemingly forgotten.

"Y'all mind if you vacate the premises in favour of someone actually usin-" he starts before his eyes fall upon the newly-built sword-dash-hoverboard and a grin springs to his face. "Well I'll be damned. A hoverboard. A working fucking hoverboard doubling as a sword." Only then does he seem to register the crowd he's standing among. "Any of ya mind telling me who this beaut belongs to?" the boy says, suddenly showing immense curiosity in the new gadget.

Oh, right. Serin might be able to do kage bunshin no jutsu, but it wasn't like those clones emitted heat, unlike the real Serin with blood and sweat. "It's the one hiding behind his other two!" she screamed to try and get her voice over the noise of battle and somehow conversations that were being held mid-fight. Either way, she'd had enough of seeing her teammates get hurt.

Her teammates had done an amazing job of keeping the opposing side off her, in addition to the fact that team BSSM had seemed to forget a key part of strategy: never leave the support alone. Releasing the now empty magazine and swiftly engaging a new clip, Jocelyn fired two healing bullets at Amane and Coco, though she hesitated at Prism. The manoeuvre the team's leader was currently pulling could lead to her shot missing and healing Billy instead.

Combat Log:
  ● 1 healing round at Amane and Coco [+10%]

Jocelyn's Stats:
  ● Aura: [███████---] 72% [Semblance Usage, -20%]
  ● Hyacinth: 5/7 rounds

This time Kei had no intention of letting his applied pressure go to waste.

Gathering strength in his legs he sprang into the air after Infrared, not aiming to land on the same pillar but instead striking at her as he passed in mid-air. To further amplify his attack he also thumbed his current lance's Dust chamber, causing the metal to crackle and pop as visible sparks began to fly. With the entirety of the lance's length now electrified he thrust at any part of Infrared's body that he could reach, before landing on the other side of the pillar.

Combat Log:
  ● Electrified thrust [6% + 6% Electric Dust]

Kei's Stats:
  ● Aura: [█████----] 66%
  ● Stamina: [█████████-] 95%

Setsuna loved getting a face full of air bubbles from Calen's hasty ascent. At least he felt his sword swing connect, though the weight paired with the water removed more than half the force he put into the attack. Following Calen's path upward albeit at slower speeds he first thrust his sword out of the water then clambered onto the ice himself, instantly shivering as his wet body felt the air of the arena.

Getting adjusted to fighting on land again he looked over to see Calen's face about to be smashed in, so picking up his sword he charged straight at Smokey from the side with no intention of concealing his attack at all. One blink at the screen depicting their aura gauges and Setsuna knew that he could sneeze on Smokey and he'd be out. Holding his sword behind him with both hands the knight executed a diagonal upward slash as soon as he was in range to do so.

Combat Log:
  ● 2-handed swing w/ Buster Sword [11%]

Setsuna's Stats:
  ● Aura: [██████████] 100%
  ● Weapons in hand: Discord [Buster Sword]

Watching Sandy finally utilise his advantage of the vertical mobility his grappling hooks provided him Setsuna could only wonder why he didn't use that earlier. Either way he currently couldn't reach Sandy bar climbing and doing so would expose him to a bombardment of - well - bombs. Nor did he want to use his semblance this early into the match. In the end he settled for picking up Discord and firing the occasional shot over Sandy's head to prevent his opponent from getting too comfortable up on his lofty perch and recombining Equilibrium.

Combat Log:
  ● 4 shots [2% x 4][Spaced apart]

Setsuna's Stats:
  ● Aura: [█████████-] 96%

No better time then now to learn then, hey?

Take consolation in the fact that you're not the only one, then.

Too tempting to pass up, I'll admit--going to enter Tieren if you'll have him.

That explained everything, then. The glasses, Chantou's friendly hint. Yu let his semblance's field fade from existence as his eyes showed a sense of mirth and envy. Somewhat simpler to hide eyes than nose and whiskers. "You're too kind, Chantou, but--" he started talking, before a soft growl emitted from underneath the table. "Actually, I believe I will take you up on that offer." he said, somewhat embarrassed to be piggy-backing off a stranger's money. Food was still food though, and he'd had enough experiences with living off tree bark for a lifetime.

His perusing through the menu laden with strange yet eye-catching pictures was interrupted by yet another girl joining him - or rather, Chantou. "Coincidentally, I do indeed study at Beacon, although I originally hail from this frigid wasteland that has been given a human name of Atlas." Yu looked left and right to check that no Atlesians overheard him mouthing off at their esteemed, high-and-mighty continent.

Moth pretty much has the bases covered, but unfortunately there's a little more than that. You'll be required to give more detail about the semblance, for example describing certain scenarios. You'll also need to expand the combat behaviour section and include both strengths and weaknesses. For the rest, generally more detail is highly recommended, but isn't 100% crucial to being approved.

TL;DR: Needs more detail on everything. Not trying to dissuade you or anything. I'd suggest taking a look at some approved characters to get a general idea of what's expected of a character profile. Good luck!

Alright, this wasn't working.

Involuntarily taking the slash on the shoulder Kei was forced to step backward in retreat, returning his lance to the en garde position as he mentally pondered his next move. He needed to engage in a way that didn't force him to overextend, but rather entice his opponent to do do instead.

Once again stepping forward he executed a feint by faking a jab directly at one of Infrared's eyes before going directly for the chest. No turning to the side shenanigans this time, he fully intended on this hitting without opening himself up for a counterattack.

Combat Log:
  ● Feint into standard attack [6%]

Kei's Stats:
  ● Aura: [█████----] 66%

Sure enough, his mask was skewed. One small, delicate hand reached up to his face and readjusted its position until Yu was certain that it covered his Faunus features completely once more. "You have my gratitude, my lady." Now immaculate once more, he waited for the girl to return to her original seat until he realised she had no intention of doing so, whilst simultaneously noticing the new addition to his table in the form of a laminated menu. One glance at the list of foods on offer and Yu knew he'd be leaving hungry once more. Not that he wasn't used to doing so.

"I'm afraid you have me at a disadvantage...might I have the pleasure of making your acquaintance?" Yu inquired, his small yet bright eyes exhibiting enough curiosity to cover for the rest of his visage. As he did so, he took stock of this new person. Large red sweater which was guaranteed to attract attention in this white wasteland of a country, dark sunglasses despite the fact that there was literally no sun...something about her put Yu's honed instincts on edge. Just to be sure, he turned on his Semblance, focusing the active area directly in front of him.

As a bullet ricocheted off the cover she was ducking behind, Jocelyn looked through the thermal scope once again to discern the current situation. Amane's Aura was lower than the rest of the team but in compliance with Prism's orders she held off on the healing.

What she saw through the scope did not nearly cover what was going on in the actual fight, however. There was a big-ass dragon all of a sudden, there were 3 Serins when she was sure she only saw one, and a broken ice wall with people barreling through it. What the bloody fuck is going on? With so many targets including two fake ones she didn't really know who to prioritise. Eventually she gave up and fired once at each member of the opposing team, though the rapid movement made her shots pretty hasty and less accurate than they could have been.

Combat Log:
  ● 1 sniper shot at each member of BSSM [6%]

Jocelyn's Stats:
  ● Aura: [█████████-] 92%
  ● Hyacinth: 0/7 rounds
