Calen only grinned at Reginald’s first response. It was clear that getting under his opponent’s skin would be a lot easier than in some of his previous fights. The cloak was a clever move, it not only weakened Calen’s attack but it also made it almost impossible to dodge the coming jab. Calen may be better suited to fighting on the ice than most but that didn’t mean that he was confident moving sideways blindfolded when his ankle being a couple degrees off would send him crashing down. Even more so than Reginald Calen was feeling the impacts of the cold, his own emaciated form and sickness meant that if he would go down on to the ice he would be slow to get back up if he could at all.

Reginald’s cape move was so clever in fact that Calen decided he would return the favour at one point, keeping the cape loose in his left hand the gaunt boy shifted his weapon into it’s sword form, impaling it into the ice for a quick turn without losing too much speed and continued back for another attack. The glaive would still be the optimal weapon in this situation, its longer reach and power would be even more impactful in an environment without stable footing but the sword would make using the cape easier, and Calen wanted to use the cape. Although it would appear attacking wasn’t going to be on cards just yet as Reginald continued to lay down on the ice. Approaching slowly Calen extending his sword back into its glaive form be still held the blade side and offered the handle to Reginald to help him to his feet.

’I’m sure you are a terror to behold but let’s make sure your fit enough to show me. You’ll catch your death laying on the ice like that.’ Calen responded, having to rush out the last few words before a coughing fit took him for a few moments. Both hands full Calen turned his face into his sword side shoulder to minimise his contagion spreading. It was a genuine offer of assistance, for Calen having a good fight was more important than winning anyway and of course who could really challenge a sickly stick-thin swordsman? No one obviously, at least that is what Calen thought. But that didn’t mean Calen was just going to take a counter attack if his offer was refused and the gaunt boy was ready to dash away at a moments notice.

Although he couldn’t see him by the sound of it appeared like his teammate, Setsuna had engaged Shiroe. By the sound of it using his semblance to do it. Calen let out a hissing sound, it would not have been his strategy but his leader did have a habit of being a little too direct. Spending a little time feeling out your opponent, finding out what they are capable of before revealing your true power would be Calen’s tactic, doubly so with such a crushing drawback as Setsuna’s. Still, that meant Calen and Setsuna would have to finish this fight quickly before it effectively becomes a 2v1. Only after Reginald was on his feet obviously.

Before his attack went through Shiroe’s guard, Setsuna noticed the long white sabre brandished in a defensive position, nearly blending in with the snow and fog surrounding the arena if not for its glow. Without it’s telltale light, he might struggle to even see the blade, especially if the conditions were to become worse.

The shield bash connected, sending a jarring sensation through his back and a small smile across Setsuna’s face. His opponent fell back with unexpected speed but unfortunately lost his footing, giving him an opportunity to continue his assault. However, a problem posed itself. There was no angle of slash that was particularly effective against a prone opponent, and the options that posed themselves in that split second could be evaded simply by rolling out of the way. Still, hoping to keep his opponent from standing up, Setsuna dove after Shiroe, stabbing his sword downward with the intent of attacking his stomach.

Shiroe took a moment to regain his sense. After tumbling into the snow he was on his back, in a small hole caused by his fall. He still had his sword, fortunately, and his runes were still intact, meaning his wasn't exactly defenseless either. His mind went to Reggie, probably still holding of Calen, a youth of similar yet less arrogant demeanor. How was he faring, better? Worse than himself? He had no clue, but as it stood without watching each other's backs they'd be at a continued disadvantage.

Setsuna burst out of the mist not a moment sooner and Shiroe could do nothing but bring his sword up for a parry. White clashed against green and Shiroe deflected the blade to his side, his saber grinding against Setsuna's to the point where sparks flew. In the same moment he brought up his leg, aiming to catch Setsuna from below with a Rune powered kick, unfortunately aimed at his groin. Had it been any other situation he wold have opted to flee, but being on his back, and having no options to speak of, he had no choice but to resort to such a shameful maneuver. He just hoped it wouldn't be too disgraceful.

Attacks: Rune powered kick to the family jewels - 10%

"I am more prepared than you might think!" Reginald groaned out, now in a low crouch. With his rifle held in one hand and his dagger in the other. He then, however, does something rather unorthodox - rather than standing up to face his swordsman foe at a close range, he slams his palm against the slider on Solace's stock - the weapon quickly transforms as the bayonet folds into a bipod and a scope forms on the top. As it does so, the boy extends the arm holding the weapon... And slams the dagger down just next to it, through the shirt, nearly clipping himself in the process.

"If I do get sick - well, hopefully I won't be as awful for it as you are!" he finally adds before firing just once at Calen's center of mass.

Calen allowed himself a small grim at Reginald’s bravado although it quickly evaporated as he saw what his opponent was trying to do. The gaunt boy was furious as Reginald’s sniper shot cleanly hit Calen in his chest, his eyes wide with naked rage at the depths his opponent seemed to so quickly sink to. Refusing Calen’s offer of assistance and rising themselves or even spending the time resting would be more respectable than this. The crowd seemed to agree as a few boos could be heard coming from the stands. Although sportsmanship wasn’t a counting factor in winning the Vytal festival it was still strongly encouraged and taking advantage of said sportsmanship felt a bitter taste in many viewers mouths.  Calen wasn’t in the right head space to exploit the opportunity, to pretend to be wounded and confused, to really milk the moment for all it was worth because none of that mattered now. Rage shot through Calen and quick like wildfire a blazing heat washed over him clouding his judgement but massively intensifying his assault.

’You had for chance Master Reginald.’ Calen began, every word dripping with the utmost disdain. ’It was so unfortunate you decided to waste it here.’ Calen’s aura flared up and he leapt towards his still mostly downed opponent raising his glaive high above his head for a series of crushing overhead attacks aiming at pummeling Reginald into and then through the ice. As Calen advanced his approach was barred by a huge torrent of air as the full force of Reginald’s semblance was flung at him. Most of the already slowly dissipating fog was blown away clearly revealing all fighters the the crowd. Calen didn’t move. Reginald wouldn’t catch him off guard again so soon as Calen activated his semblance to remain perfectly still for a few moments and sending more arcs of green light into the air. Breathing hard, that stunt had cost him but it had been worth it. Reginald was on his knees and Calen was almost free to do whatever he wanted to the out of his depth marksman.

For now, that was pain. A trio of heavy downward strikes meant to split open any last defences Reginald might have left before Calen will truly get to work. Although it wasn’t immediately obvious to outsiders Calen had lost even his small desire to win beyond his pride and instead was completely subsumed by the desire to make Reginald pay for denying him, for betraying his trust, for disrespecting him. Most of his elegant movements remained but Calen was clearly showing no regard for his or anyone's safety, a deadly strategy for both fighters as now Calen would take everything Reginald had head on to prove his own overwhelming strength against his opponent. Although it’s success was far from certain.

"Dust almighty-" Setsuna let go of his saber and threw himself to one side, with the end result of the kick half-connecting on his thigh. With no time to really control where he was going to land, the boy landed roughly in the snow and rolled a little before getting back up, pulling a dagger bit from his shield to replace his sword, now buried in the snow next to Shiroe. "That wasn't very nice of you." Setsuna remarked, holding the dagger in front of his chest as he gave Shiroe enough time to stand back up - daggers were even worse against a prone opponent, though he should have taken a different approach in the first place.

Regardless of whether Shiroe decided to take the opportunity to stand, Setsuna swept forward again, aided by his Semblance's speed to once more dive on his opponent. With his right hand he aimed two fast, darting cuts at his opponent's waist while his left reached for his sword before bringing it down diagonally across Shiroe's chest.

     It felt like a mad scramble moving from his cold bed of snow to his feet but Shiroe back springed back into action with his sword held high. Unfortunately he didn't have enough time to prepare a rune and saw two daggers fly at him from his opponent's direction.

     The first dagger flew aside with a flick of his blade but the second slammed into his waist while the speed enhanced Setsuna dove towards him. Unable to react in time, and with no runes to counter the blow, Shiroe only managed to bring a dull static guard that deflected the blade from his chest to his other shoulder.

     In such close quarters and his blade stuck in a high guard, Shiroe aimed a pommel strike straight into Setsuna's face while charging the runes on his legs. Success or not he kicked back to regain some breathing room as his eyes darted looking for his teammate.

And just like that, he had provoked his opponent. Two can play those mind games, Shiroe! As his opponent went in for his strikes, Reginald set in motion the next part of his plan. That dagger he nearly stabbed himself with wasn't for show - it was meant to keep himself grounded for his next move.

When Shiroe was close enough for his strike, Reginald fired up his semblance - a chill ran across entire form, his clothes flapping about and his body forced down as ice-cold winds littered with flecks of snow picked up around him, strong gusts flowing from his form in every direction. The plan was rather simple in execution - he intended to throw Calen off-balance, or better yet, knock him down and away where he could be easy pickings with Solace.

He really bloody hoped it would work.

I still think this was a really silly idea because now I basically can't post. So it's just the second half of my above post.


As Calen advanced his approach was barred by a huge torrent of air as the full force of Reginald’s semblance was flung at him. Most of the already slowly dissipating fog was blown away clearly revealing all fighters the the crowd. Calen didn’t move.
