Gwylan knew the bow was going to be a problem. Sure, he'd used one a few times, but that had been years ago, and the fact he used a polearm certainly proved it wasn't his strong suit. He could hit a target like, forty percent of the time. But, in the spirit of the exercise, he was going to try. But first, introductions.

"It's a pleasure to meet you, Anna, how are you today? Enjoying the new toys?", he grinned over at the girl. Those chain blades looked like they'd be good fun to use, even if he was more likely to wrap himself up in them than actually pull off something successful. Perhaps she'd have better luck than he would with them though. For all he knew, she also used chained weapons. Or she preferred a giant warhammer and was completely screwed, you never knew with this school. At least his came with some sort of glaive, which was like a trident. Kinda.

Oooooh, Anna was liking how this had turned out. Chain weapons? Heck yeah? Although, it'd take some getting used to. Her own chains didn't use the same method to deliver damage and, on top of that, had a different weight distribution. Still, third be great.

She pulsed her semblance as her opponent spoke. Right, Gwylan. "I-I'm very well, Gwylan, thank you! I-I usually use chains, too, s-so this is great! You?" As she finished speaking, she made sure her hair got in the way of her face. It was a great way to distract human opponents, to be honest.

"Bow isn't my cup of tea to be honest with ya, but hey, if there was ever a time to accidentally hit someone with it, now's it right?" Gwylan took the opportunity to test how drawing the bow was gonna go, nocking a regular arrow and pulling back. It wasn't so bad, he seemed to be able to work it well enough, though it was obvious the weapon was designed for someone with shorter arms than him.

The fact her's seemed closer to what her normal weapon is was not a good sign. Gwylan had been planning on starting out with the bow and swords, and save the glaive till later, when she'd got a strategy worked out. But it seemed he'd end up being pressured into that revelation sooner rather than later.

"Shall we begin so? Or do you need another minute or two?"

"I-I'm ready! Let's do this!" She unsheathed the blades and waited for her opponent to start. The fact that she couldn't use her semblance was kinda bad, but oh well, her other senses were rather sharp anyways. She'd have to manage.

Nodding to himself, Gwylan settled himself into a proper position, drawing back the bow and levelling the arrow at Anna. He waited a moment, then another, before sighing and releasing his arrow, then nocking and firing a second. From there, he holds position, waiting for her reprisal.

(First misses unless she moves a few feet to her right, second is more accurate: 5% aura, torso shot.)

Anna had seen the bow. She knew to expect arrows. Which is why, as soon as she heard the first one go off, she started running towards the source of the rather quiet noise, swinging the blades in front of herself in the hopes of knocking any incoming arrows out of the way.

The second one, even though Anna still flailed the rectangular blades in front of her, got her right in the torso, prompting a hiss from the pain. She kept running a bit and, when she thought she was close enough, let the chains extend to their maximum lengths, swinging the blades in opposite directions for 2 complete turns each.

(Aura: 95%)
(Getting caught by a blade anywhere but in the head: 5%
In the head: 8%
By a chain: Possibility of getting chained really, really quickly)

Well, that had gone better than expected. One of his arrows actually hit, which was more surprising than anything Anna could have done. His old instructor would be so pleased if they ever heard. The exchanged also proved to Gwylan that he didn't get any real satisfaction from shooting people from a distance, and having a team full of duel wielders had given Gwylan more than enough practice to feel confident in a head on strike. But first.

Gwylan leaped back with as much force as he could, barely fast enough to avoid being wrapped up in those chains. He wasn't quick enough to avoid those blades though, grunting in frustration more than anything as they slashed across his torso. Avoiding the chains wasn't the sole point of the dodge though, he needed the time to transform the bow into a pair of swords, and prepare for the second swing.

Continuing back a bit, Gwylan stretched out the blade in his right hand as Anna's follow up attack came in, letting the sword get wrapped up by the chain. He brought his left arm up and under the chain to get some more strength in his throw, as he aimed to pull Anna back, off of her feet and straight into, he hoped, the side kick he fired out at her head.

(Aura: 90%)

(Throw pulls Anna off her feet, kick does 5% aura if it connects with her head, 3% otherwise)

Spoiler: ShowHide
(Throw allowed by Nathan)

Ah, crap. She could hear it. He'd caught at least one chain. This was bad. Well, time for improv. Right before the chain inexorably threw Anna forward, she jumped to the side, hoping the additional momentum would make her go to the opponent's side.

Coiling back the chain she still had complete control of, she grabbed hold of the blade and transformed it into its gun form, shooting a single Fire Dust shot at wherever she thought Gwylen's head ought to be. After landing, she switched it again, flicked and pulled the chain she didn't have control over towards the enemy's only leg that had contact with the floor, let a bit of chain loose on the other one and swung over her shoulder right onto what she hoped was the collapsed dude.

(Aura: 95%)
(Shot: About 5% Fire damage?)
(Flick & pull: Possibility of pulling Gwylen's leg out from under him)
(Over shoulder swing: 8-10%?)

She had a gun too?! Not fair at all, Gwylan was stuck with a bow full of explosive arrows........ oh, yeah, they could explode. That would be great to remember, if being slammed into the floor didn't knock it out of his head. The bullet definitely would have, if he hadn't adjusted himself to compensate for her jump. Thankfully, having a gunslinger on his team had left Gwylan feeling slightly better about how often bullets went past his ears.

Abandoning his right sword entirely for the moment, Gwylan rolled over his left side, wincing as he heard the chain crack of the ground right where he'd be just a second prior. These damn chains really complicated things, didn't they, Gwylan thought as he rolled back, so his back was on the chain, and he could grab that sword he'd ditched and reconnect it back horizontally with it's twin, so he could fire an explosive arrow at Anna's chest. The chain wrapped around the blade would have to restrict her movement, right?

(Aura=90% Gwylan is prone)

(Arrow: 10% fire damage + concussive explosion, 11/12 dust arrows remaining)

As the swing ended with a loud crack indicating the floor had been savagely brutalized, Anna kept her ears alert, allowing her to hear Gwylan roll over. And metallic clicking. Shit. He was switching forms or something. Keeping a hold of the chain stuck under the opponent's weight, she switched the remaining blade to gun form once again and pulled the trigger - once, two, three times, firing Lightning, Fire and Ice Dust respectively. The hope was to stun, damage - as well as possibly detonate whatever manner of Dust he was holding - and finally restrain the opponent. Her aim was directed roughly at the center of Gwylan's chest, or at least that's what she thought.

(Aura: 95%, arrow damage will hit or not depending on next post by Dusty)
(Each shot: 5% Aura damage, Lightning shot has a chance to shock/stun, Fire shot has a chance to prematurely detonate the arrow (depending on how they're set up), Ice shot encases a small region in ice)

She used that bloody gun again. Forget every nice thing Gwylan ever said about Tina and Nero, firearms were completely unfair in a fight. Especially when he was stuck with a lousy bow. Still, Gwylan at least got the arrow off before Anna electrocuted him, so that was a plus.

The arrow being shot out of the air and exploding, not so much. The combined force of the arrow was enough to send him rolling away, and probably knock Anna off of her feet, or at least a few feet back, and conveniently detonated the ice bullet too, so that wasn't a problem anymore.

Gwylan used his momentum to roll to his feet, and charged at Anna while transforming his weapon into it's third form, aiming to either sweep her feet out if she's standing, or slam the butt of the glaive into her gut and vault over her if she hadn't recoverded

(Aura: 70%)

(Explosion: 15%, combined both attack values, plus a further 1-2% if Anna falls and cracks her head as a result. Standing glaive attack: 4%. Prone attack 6%)

Ah. She hadn't thought he'd be able to let off the arrow before the second shot. But he had, so she heard.

Her reflexions were pretty much halted at that moment, as she was blown backwards by the explosion whilst pulling the gun's trigger. But hey, the other chain was free now. She didn't waste time and reeled it right back in, whilst she herself rolled backwards. When she was back on her feet (albeit not standing upright), she shot another Ice bullet at where she heard Gwylan running, swinging the newly re-acquired chain at his chest. She then pulled the trigger a second time, this time at the man's feet to try make him stuck.

(Aura: 73%, other attacks may or may not hit next post)
(Shot 1: 5%, will encase something in ice if it lands (aimed at the middle-chest area, so it could basically land anywhere on the upper body or weapon, really)
Swing: 8%
Shot 2: 5% if lands a direct hit + encase in ice, 0% if indirect but gets caught in the ice anyway)

Gwylan swung the glaive diagonally as soon as he saw Anna draw that gun on him, using the base to stop the bullet, at the cost of encasing it in ice. Following through by letting go of the glaive with his left hand and spinning it around, he caught it again and brought it up to block the chain with the centre of the weapon, taking a glancing blow on his wrist for his trouble. This fight had to be locked down into close quarters or she was just gonna keep shooting him.

Maintaining his charge while snapping the weapon to his right side,  until his left foot was frozen to the ground that is, Gwylan used his momentum to push off and extend his right arm fully, aiming to stab Anna in the abdomen, and use the time she spent reacting to bring the butt of the weapon back and smash both ice chunks off of each other, freeing himself.

(Aura: 67%)

(Stab: 5% aura, aimed for the solar plexus ideally, but anywhere in that area.)

The metallic clunk indicated that Anna had shot the weapon Gwylan was holding. Damn. At least it'd restrain his movement a bit.

She also heard him step forward - and brutally stop, prompting her to try and avoid whatever was coming her way by rolling backwards. She wasn't successful, the reach of a person with a damn glaive stretching to the max being quite surprising as she was caught right between the breasts. Christ, that hurt like hell.

She turned the pistol into a blade again and swung it over her shoulder, very quickly followed by a strong slash coming from the bottom right and heading for the top left.
