"Yes, Shenanigans. With your trickery and such!" Mia kept her eye on the register screen when Fake Mia swiped it. She read the name silently, and it dawned on her, though a little too slowly. She recognized the name. It was definitely someone that Kirkka told her about... someone of mild importance... that was employed at Beacon... and... they did stuff...

Finally, she managed to recall some useful information. It was some kind of semblance that can modify her appearance, obviously. It was familiar enough to her that she remembered enough. 

Disregarding that for a moment, she refocused herself and went back to customer service mode, smiling and bowing slightly as she thanked Fake Mia. "Well, thank you for stopping by! Please come again!" She waved at Anna who was standing patiently in line, hoping the copycat will get the hint and get out of the way.

Mia instinctively nodded and smiled to Fake Mia's gratitude, then silently watched the imposter collect some dust as she returned to the checkout counter.

When Fake Mia came up to the counter, Mia raised an eyebrow in anticipation of the following conversation. She took a mental note of Anna following up and waiting in line before directing her attention to her double. "I apologize, but it's much too early for these shenanigans. But yes, you've probably seen me before. My name is Mia Brightspear and I run this shop." She quickly rung Fake Mia's dust cannister up and gave the total cost, wanting to be done with this conversation. But then she had a thought. Her register IDs people when they purchase goods from her store, to ensure they are a student or faculty member. Which means it should be easy to figure out who Fake Mia is as soon as she swipes her Scroll. She lightly motioned toward the scanner, expecting Fake Mia to pass her Scroll over it.

There was this one time where Mia made the world's largest waffle. And then Waffle ate it. At least, in his dreams he did. And she did. It is a recurring dream for Waffle, and if he were capable of lucid dreaming, it would likely be the only thing he ever dreamt of. Waffle gave a bear sigh and then checked his surroundings, deciding the best course of action was to not attempt to enter through the front door. He took up his post just to the left of the door, sitting down and then scratching his neck for a few moments out of boredom.

Mia had heard about Anastasia's semblance from her friend Kirkka, but truth be told, she was only barely paying attention at the time. Kirkka had been rambling on about many, many things and Mia had lost interest long ago. She was probably going over her grocery list in her mind when Kirkka mentioned the capabilities of this unique semblance. All that said, she remembers something about the conversation... just not the details.

The shopkeeper struggled with it but managed to keep her composure. For the moment. "Er, well, the dispensers are all labeled clearly at the bottom." She pointed to the wall of dispensers, being too far to accurately point out the labels themselves. They were quite visible if perhaps a little difficult to read from across the shop. "As for using them... you just attach the dust containers to the nozzle and press the button. The dispenser will fill the container until you release it or until it's... full." She squinted her eyes slightly as she struggled to recall that important piece of information she ignored a while back. Just who is this person and why does she look like me? She doesn't sound like me at all, though. Hmmm... Mia racked her brain some more while she maintained a strong focus on the imposter.

Waffle sat down, still staring at the cracks in the door frame. Deep contemplation was visible on his bear shaped face. Just kidding. He's a bear. He is thinking very hard about something though. Probably waffles. Or at least, waffles are a major player in his thoughts.

The flames began dying down quite rapidly as there was little left to burn. As it changed from a small inferno into a smoldering group of charred trees, things became quiet again, if only for a moment. Naturally, the flames drew the attention of things in the immediate vicinity, including several much more dangerous grimm. Six Creeps had just come running out of the nearest hole in the village wall and were charging at the group of four. Before the team could act, however, there was a brief rumble heralding the appearance of twelve more Creeps burrowing out of the ground all around them. The group was surrounded!

While the approaching six were bunched up quite nicely, the remaining twelve were spread very thin in a wide circle. Smashing them all at once would be a challenge simply due to how far apart they were. Of course, the sudden appearance of the Ring o' Grimm became a footnote, when a second tremor shook the ground, many times more than the first. A near deafening guttural roar, which slowing changed into an ear-piercing screech, echoed forth as a massive creature broke through the surface of the ground. Its front leg smashed effortlessly through the crumbling wall, revealing itself in full to the party.

The creature would be nearly three stories tall if standing fully on it's four massive, heavily armored legs that extended like spider legs out from his body. A single claw, if it could be called that considering its longer than any of the students, dug slightly into the ground as its front leg dug back into the ground after smashing the wall. The body had no neck, and its head rested quite close to the ground. Its back, however, expanded up and outward and formed something of a mushroom shape, the top of it being spotted. Armor protects nearly the entire body, the only weak points appearing to be the underside of the mushroom-shaped backside, and the joints of its very long legs.

Knowledge Check: if you are quite knowledgeable about exceedingly rare grimm, you recognize this creature as a Sporeback. They are so extremely rare, that on average, perhaps one out of every 1000 graduate hunters ever even see one. They are known for their ability to spawn swarms of Creeps from the spots on the top of their mushroom back. Their danger level is very high due to their ability to use sheer force of numbers to overwhelm even the strongest of hunters. Their greatest weakness is that they are very, very slow. When they burrow into the ground, they leave only the top of their back exposed to the surface, granting them unbelievable defense while retaining the ability to spawn Creeps. Significant effort will be required to down the creature. It is quite likely that this thing was not supposed to be here.

There was still some distance between the massive entity and the team, and the Creeps surrounding them were the immediate threat. The creature did not appear to be moving toward them. In fact, it was still partially burrowed into the ground as it faced them, peering at them with its four glowing red eyes.

Kaali had followed the rest of her team to the walled village. The damage to the wall was quite severe, but the whole could serve as a nice bottleneck as long as they could get the other side under control. Stepping forward, Kaali addressed Vahn and Mae while she examined the village wall. When she discovered an easy spot to get over it. she pointed it out. "From the sounds of it, we need to help inside the wall too. We can use that hole as a bottleneck if we can clear out the ones inside. The three of us should get in there and do that. We can let Cerulean and Riot handle the incoming ones. They're both frustrating to talk to but they seem capable, despite injuries. We can get in over there. Its a long jump but the hill rises up near the wall there. The high ground will benefit your ranged weapons, too."

Sheathing her weapon due to the lack of immediate danger, she began moving toward the wall and getting ready to leap across. The jump was long, but she knew she could make it. The question was whether the other two could, should they come with. As she thought, with the help of her semblance she made the jump on top of the wall easily and turned around ready to try and catch the others if they needed help.

As the fireball engulfed the dense plant life, all manner of screeches and other awkward sounds could be heard. And just a moment later, a swarm of tiny, adorable squirrel grimm scattered from the area in every direction, many of them already on fire. Their glowing red eyes looked for a solution to their plight, but they saw none as they ran in a panic. The ones who escaped the flames all disappeared into holes or under other bits of foliage or cover, but the ones who didn't simply ran out of time as the flames took their energy and eventually the smoke from the fire turned to smoke from the Grimm dissipating.

Squirrel lovers everywhere cried out at once as a feeling of unease washed over them. Someone, somewhere, committed an atrocity.

Of course, they're just Grimm. No actual squirrels were harmed in the fireballing of that thicket.

Kaali was about to reply to his request for bandages but was interrupted when Riot took off running, or something that resembled running considering his current state. Spotting the grimm heading toward the town, and watching Vahn take off after the critically injured Riot, Kaali turned and fixated on Cerulean. Her guard was fully up and her semblance was steady and active, but her blade still remained at her side instead of in front of her. "There appears to be a higher priority than slaughtering an injured human. Agreed?" Her face showed a fair bit of resolve, but it was evident that she was nervous, perhaps a little scared. She knew the person in front of her was a full-fledged huntsman. She knew that a direct fight him would be brutally hard. But she kept her straight face as best she could as she pushed the fear to the back of her mind. The Grimm were the priority. They're always the priority.

As the wall came more clearly into view, it became clear just how old it was. The wall was made of stone and was easily five feet thick originally. It was heavily eroded away in the places where there wasn't just a massive hole, likely from some previous student. The wood the gate was one made of was completely gone, leaving a frame of metal that reinforced it. The metal was bent and crushed in multiple directions, making it impossible to close it even a little. Walking along the wall was possible due to its width, despite the erosion and damage.

Just past the gate was a cobblestone road and the foundation for some kind of building, likely once a guardhouse, being so close to the entrance. The road itself was in horrendous shape. Rocks lay everywhere, and the holes they were once in have been filled with dirt or mud, or nothing at all.

Outside the wall, there was a small thicket of trees and undergrowth to the left of the road, not 20 feet away from the outside edge of the wall. Even those paying little attention to their surroundings could see movement of something in there. Grimm? Maybe. Probably. But they did not seem keen on leaving their heavy cover.

Recovering from her loss of balance after the injured man collided with her, Kaali stood up straight with her sword still in hand but resting. Her eyes focused with purpose on Cerulean, considering him the primary threat for the moment. "Nowhere in our orders does it say to kill anyone! Who are you to decide who lives and who dies?!" Her grip on her blade tightened as she took a deep breath to calm herself before looking toward the injured one as if checking to see if he'll run or do some fancy wooshy speed attack like before.

Can't do red as Ruby already is.

Rein is Norwegian for Rain so blue works.

Reinhardt is a German red. Ruby is an English red. They're different so its okay.

The front door was not designed with Waffles in mind. The frame was slightly cracked even because Waffle once believed in the power of squeezing through the door. Waffle was not a small bear. He easily stood at 10 feet tall when on his back legs, and weighed over a thousand pounds. That door was not designed to accommodate these things. Waffle knew. When "Mia" entered the store, he paused and looked at the crack in the frame while recalling the time that it happened. It was horrible. Mia was so mad that Waffle didn't get any waffles for a week. Worst week ever.

And so, Waffle watched "Mia" enter the store, hopeful that she was going to get his waffles and bring them back out.

Letting Cobe mull over his thoughts about the Steam crystals and Dust, Mia excused herself before greeting Anna warmly as she arrived at the wall dispensers. "Morning!" Instead of directly asking, she left it at that and turned to the other two customers that had just arrived. She greeted the pair of them at once, but her inflection changed at the end. "" Strangely, she saw herself standing in the shop, looking at some display filled with basic cartridges for weapons. Must be a lack of sleep or something. Regardless, she stared at "Mia" for too long.

Reinhardt can be interpreted to mean things like hardy, brave, strong.

Red is often associated with strength.

Reinhardt = Red

Most helmets don't cover the eyes. How else would you see?! Nose is valid though.

"not" is not capitalized in the same way that "von" in  Rick von Strudel is not capitalized.

Waffle knew. But that didn't stop him. Still standing on all fours, Waffle moved slightly closer to "Mia", moving to her left side. This was standard following procedure for Battle Bears, which Waffle had cursory training in. He was often seen following Mia just to her left. It's very official. "Mia" obviously wanted him to follow her to the waffles, and that's what he would do. He paused only slightly to look at Revya, who had bumped into him earlier but seemed too interested in whatever he was looking at to care.

"Steam? Kind of uncommon for a crystal. I have some, but they're expensive. You'd be better off with a Fire and Water crystal, then a mechanism to create steam from them. If your weapon can't do that, however... While speaking, Mia motioned for Cobe to follow her and stopped in front of one of the display cases featuring a wide variety of crystals. "... I only have what's in here. Two crystals, one small and one medium. Dust is a better option, as it's only a little more expensive but its more effective."
