Prism looks in the mirror, straightens her cravate, and gives a quiet sight to herself as her shoulders droop.

Losing someone hurt. Prism knew that better than a lot of people. Amane had voluntarily dropped out of Beacon, going off to pursue whatever task that secret agent thing she belonged to told her too - and in the process, left the rest of Team Casanova reeling. The goodbye had been brief, abrupt, barely enough time to wish her well and find out of they’d ever see her again-

And it didn’t hurt that after two hours, they would forget the face of a close friend forever more, too.

Prism’s hand pushes past her cravate, reaching for the pocket on the inside of her vest. Carefully tugging out a folded piece of paper, she unfolds it and looks over the hurried drawing, commissioned by Prism seconds after Amane had left. She’d immediately gone to that one third year she’d seen sketching realistic Grimm, and after paying a hefty fee for her immediate attention, described every detail she remembered about Amane’s face before the two hours were up. She remembers thinking it was a fairly accurate match to her friend before forgetting what she looked like, so hopefully the picture was accurate. It was something to remember her by, at least.

Folding it up again, Prism tucks it back into her best and straightens her cravate again. The rest of Casanova still needed their fearless leader, no matter how much it hurt to lose a friend. Especially with the arrival of their new teammate, who was assigned to Casanova almost immediately after Amane’s absence. With only the name Azure Blair to go by, the future looked uncertain - so Prism pulled the familiar worn bomber jacket over her wings again, steeled herself, and moved to step out of the locker room and back into the training ring.

The first she sees (and thinks) was that she managed to miss their new arrival’s… arrival, apparently coming in while she was changing into her combat gear. A minor flush of shame rises at the fact she wasn’t there to greet her, but she pushes past it to focus on the new teammate. She was tall, dressed rather loosely, absent-mindedly strumming a guitar that Prism was willing to bet was her weapon - and had a wolf’s tail hanging from her waist. The slight grin that quirks onto Prism’s face with the addition of another faunus on the team is quickly wiped away as she catches Coconut looking up thankfully at the ceiling. Right, that’d be fun to explain to the new girl.

But regardless of that, Prism had a good first impression to make - and so did her teammates. A piercing whistle shatters the quiet solemnity of the arena, and cuts off Coconut’s initial greeting - interrupted by the familiar click of Prism’s heels carrying her across the arena to join the little group. “Casanova, at attention please! We’re here to greet our new teammate, and saying hi from the ground is no way to introduce yourself, Josie!” The hummingbird faunus announces, her tone turning teasing towards the end of her sentence - there’s obviously no hostility in the leader’s tone towards her teammates.
Regardless of that, Prism pulls up short of Azure, giving a friendly grin up towards the taller faunus. “You must be Azure Blair, right? Just assigned to Team Casanova? I’m Prism Skylark, the leader of our little group - it’s nice to finally meet you!” She chirps, folding one arm behind her back before holding out the other for Azure to take.

Prism’s quiet as Hunter stumbles through his explanation, evidently a bit off-guard. She nurses the remains of the warm noodle bowl as he fumbles, a small smile on her face at the Professor’s awkwardness - before she leans back in her chair with a sigh. Persevered is almost painfully accurate an analysis of her life. “Atlas is a shithole of a place to live, but so is Vale’s fostercare system, especially when you’re a tiny bird faunus. When it came down to it, there was nothing else to do but persevere, or…” Her voice falters for a second, staring off into face. “...die trying, I guess.” She finishes quietly.

Shaking herself out of her revere, she offers Hunter another small smile. “Thank you, though. It’s taken a long time to get to where I am today. In the end, it’s all worth it.”

What's Aurelia's plan and/or leadership model for dealing with the rest of Apricot, and how do you think she'll react to some of the rowdier members?

Chantou’s eyebrow raises again as Smokey begins to fire after his fairly-cryptic answer. She’d admit the strength behind the weapon was pretty brutal even as a glorified paintball gun, at least in comparison to her pistols - and she liked to think they packed a decent punch. Even then, Chantou’s not much of a academic - so it’s only  after he begins to record the outcome of his colorful destruction she finally understands, giving a little nod of understanding. So, what you’re sayin’ is you’re stress-testin’ the best shape for a shield,”[color] She responds. “Without actually sayin’ it?”

“Let’s see…” Jima ponders, fiddling with the motor on her sword. “One, about the staff knowing this is here - I wouldn’t know personally, but it wouldn’t surprise me if someone like Professor Sophos knew. Two, keeping the location of this place a secret I’ll leave up to you. If you bring more people out this way though, just be prepared for a fight and like, don’t litter. Or destroy the ruins too much. Three - c’mon, aren’t you all in the first year Grimm Studies class? Think about it. Large arena, crumbling ruins. Plenty of hideyholes, and we literally just planted ourselves in the middle of it all. Perfect environment forrr…”

Almost perfectly timed, a deep growl permeates the arena, the echo making it difficult to pinpoint. Jima grins to herself at the sound, yanking the pullchain on the side of her new sword, and the chainsaw roars to life in response - only to cough and sputter, before blowing smoke in Jima’s face. She yanks the chain a couple more times to see if it’d come back to life, only to for the lights of the motor to die out as it becomes entirely unresponsive. ”Okay, you guys can handle the first wave yourself! Good luck!”

As Jima starts to drag her weapon off to the side of the arena, a particularly brave Creeper charges headlong out of the nearest arena entry towards the group. Several more of the same Grimm follow it out of the gate, fanning out - not charging headlong like their compatriot, just quickly stalking towards the group.



TARGETS:
  • Creeper x 5

Battle Log:
  • Headlong Charge (10%, Group Attack)

Rufus’ attempt to sweep her legs out from underneath her fail as Jima hops back, before using the distance to lunge right back in - attempting to slam Rufus back against the ground with one hand, while raising her mace to bring it back down across his face with the other. No playing around, no fancy maneuvers - just a straight lunge to smash the faunus across the face.

Chantou stares on ahead as Diana and Yu make polite yet awkward smalltalk, feigning disinterest at their conversation. It was honestly kind of amusing, watching the poor girl attempt to navigate chatting politely with two strangers, while Yu dealt with outright social awkwardness. Guess this is what happens when you stick a bunch of strangers together at a dinner table. Her mask of solemnity stays perfect until Diana begins to talk about her past in Atlas, with her confession about the inherent nature of Atlas’ treatment of faunus. It’s enough to make the mantis faunus raise an entire eyebrow, turning her head to stare down Diana from behind her sunglasses with a slight tilt to her head, a curious expression on her face - and the corner of her mouth quirks up as the human awkwardly finishes, before the slight smirk vanishes as soon as it appears.

Sometimes you can find decent people in even the harshest environments.

With a bit more ease to her slouch in the chair, Chantou raises one hand and barks out a couple words in a harsh Mistralian language to signal the waiter Diana tried to previously flag - making the young man start and walk over to the table. Chantou points to something on the menu and exchanges a couple more sentences with the waiter in a foreign language, before setter her menu down on the table - apparently already completing her order. Time to get something to eat, and hopefully rescue Yu for a bit before Diana accidentally pressures him into taking his mask off. “Sweet of ya’ to offer Diana, but I’ll pass. You two go ahead n’ order anythin ya’ want, within reason of course - it’s on me, spirit of the Vytal Festival n’ all.”

Prism’s settled so comfortably into Jocelyn’s embrace that she takes a moment to respond, making a small sound of acknowledgement from where she’s burrowed into her teammate’s shoulder. “Hey now, don’t knock my caffeine. Besides, I don’t get too hyper - I’ve gotten pretty good at containing it.”[/color] She murmurs playfully. “But yeah, that sounds nice - go somewhere and get something proper for breakfast.”

Chantou glances towards Dawn, giving her a nod of acknowledgement instead of reaching for her outstretched hand. “Chantou.” She answers, before turning her attention back to Smokey. “It might help if you explained like, what you’re doin’ here dude. Instead leavin’ us wonderin’ ‘bout a fuckton of strawmen.” She answers, the amusement still prevalent in her voice. She’s not going to voice it at least, but well - what he’s doing is frankly kinda ridiculous, and subsequently very amusing.

This was better than anything she thought she’d find in the training range.

Prism’s quiet for a moment, shoving more noodles into her mouth as she mules over his answer, before stabbing the chopsticks back into the bowl. “...you’re really lucky then.” Prism answers, trying to choose her words carefully. “Native-born Atlesians who’re cool with faunus are rare. It’s good you found someone like her then. And like - being able to overcome the shit they put faunus through with around here, that takes some guts, let me tell you. I mean, I thought I was used to this shit, but Vale’s nowhere near as harsh as Atlas. Especially with like the occasional death threat and all- but like, besides the point. That’s good for you, and good for the students here too.” She finishes, only somewhat awkwardly.

“Just… why choose to show me, of all people?”

Jima’s come too far to just lose it like this.

Thankfully Rufus is the one who closes the distance between the two, saving Jima the necessity of closing the gap. She just manages to jerk back in time to avoid the sudden uppercut, spotting it just as he rushes in. The advantage of using a heavy bludgeoning weapon was the fact that wasn’t rendered useless by being frozen shut - so despite the fact her fingers burned where they made contact with the frozen metal, Jima retaliates with a heavy two-handed downswing to meet Rufus’ uppercut.

You’re definitely going to want to expand on Azure’s combat behavior. A sentence isn’t usually enough to encapsulate a character’s fighting style: how do they face down human opponents? How do they face down Grimm? What are their primary strengths and weaknesses? How do they get along with a team or when fighting alongside other people? And how do they use their semblance in a fight? All of these factors are important to consider for a fledgling huntress, since it’s a useful resource when in a sparring thread - both for you and your opponent.

Three specific weaknesses of your character’s combat styles are required, just to note.

Hi, welcome to rwby-rpg! I’m glad to see you’re getting started with a character right away, but as someone who’s put out nearly 5 profiles, let me just say you don’t need to make an entire other post for Azure’s backstory - it’s not something we really shy away from here. And if you’re really concerned about length, you can put it all under a spoiler. But seriously, don’t be afraid to just plonk it all into her profile!

(Also it makes it easier on the mods and they’ll appreciate it)

Prism sits down quietly, staring into her noodles for a few moments as she thinks. She’s got a lot of questions, she can’t lie - a faunus professor at Atlas Academy is shocking in every sense, but it’s also… well, fantastic, frankly. It’s nice knowing faunus students at Atlas aren’t totally under the mercy of a brutal staff. Instead of starting right away, she elects to quickly shove some noodles in her mouth and swallow them down with a quick slurp, before letting herself burst into her round of questions.

“Okay, so - obviously, your wife knows with all the makeup pallets all over the house, but like - does anybody else at the academy know? What about any students? Why do you choose to teach and stay here of all places instead of moving somewhere less blatantly racist? How do you deal with it everyday?

Prism appropriately spends a few more moments starring in stunned silence at Hunter as he cleaned up the broken mug, before rushing forwards to clean up all the little shards he left on the ground as he turned to his phone. If she just broke someone else’s mug, the very least she could do was make sure nobody got their foot sliced open if they came through with bare feet.

Brushing the spare shards off her hand, she turns back to Hunter and laces her hands together, rocking on her heels as she waited for him to finish texting. After frowning at his phone for whatever reason, his attention finally returns to her as she stutters into an apology. “S-so, uh. I’m sorry about that. That outburst was one hell of an overreaction, including like…” She gestures to the floor in front of her. “Shattering your mug. I’ll- I’ll make sure to replace that for you, it’s the least I can do. Um. I guess the fact you’re actually a faunus? G-gotta admit, that’s a plot twist I didn’t expect in the slightest.” She finishes, joking weakly.
