Azure straightened up from where she had landed during her attack on Prism’s feet, spinning her guitar in one hand like it was nothing. The only reaction her otherwise indifferent expression showed to Prism’s reveal of her wings was a slight quirk in on eyebrow.

“Well that’s a new development,” she noted, as though vaguely amused.

Azure watched the other two teammates join in, a cocky smirk dancing across her lips. So Prism was wanting to add an extra challenge? Well, it appears her plan had backfired. With her semblance being what it was, the odds were just perfectly in her favor. Multiple opponents--albeit a small number, that might make things a bit more difficult than had she been fighting five or ten others--and no allies who could fall casualty to her antics. Honestly, she couldn’t ask for a better set up.
Well, that was a lie. She would have preferred facing at least two more people-- three was pushing the minimum for what she could do.

“Well,” she mused, “two is a couple, three is a crowd.” She was somewhat cryptic in her statement--she couldn’t help it, she was a drama queen at heart--not further explaining her words as she strummed Renegade, launching herself up into the air once more. This time, she perches herself on one of the rafters in the ceiling, sitting down and crossing her legs; a casual position, she knew she had nothing to worry about.

She settled her fingers on the fret board once more, this time not to charge up a strike, but to play. She began strumming, using her thumbnail as she didn’t have a pick on her, recording the chord progression. After running through the short progression once, she would flick a switch on her guitar, Renegade playing back the recording like a loop box so she could switch to the melody, giving more emotion to the song. Said emotion was... not quite despair, but something akin to it. She spread it out throughout her teammates with the intention of disheartening them, wrapping the three of them in her semblance as the notes rang out. She wasn’t sure if it would work, three was such a small number, after all. It barely counted as a crowd, and there wasn’t much atmosphere to work with, not much she could manipulate. It was harder to provoke an atmosphere when there was none to start with.

Her goal was simple: get her teammates to freeze, to give up; that would make it much easier to attack them, if they were too disheartened to attack back

Prism blinks as Azure launches herself up into the rafters of the gymnasium, raising one eyebrow - there is... very little she'd be able to do from there. The first couple notes she plucks on her guitar have an odd ring to them, before a chill runs up her spine, and a familiar low despair begins to manifest itself in her mind. High, odd, and lonely, it reminds her of high places and rooftop edges and a baby bird who couldn't fly yet so it wouldn't be- wouldn't be-

It has to be her semblance

Prism lets a oddly blank expression settle over her face. The only warning Azure would get would be the brief straightening of her posture as her wings flare wide as massive updraft propels her into the air and her wings become a blue-green blur. She reverses the position of her glaive as she rises, pointing the butt of her glaive at Azure - and promptly buries her new teammate in a rain of sniper amunition.

She's fucking sitting in the rafters, she's not gonna be able to dodge that easily.

As Azure's music spreads across the arena, Jocelyn finds herself not concentrating on the fight in front of her - if one can call this a fight; Azure's perched on the rafters like a songbird performing for an audience - and instead casting her mind back to her childhood, back in their home of Patch where her old friends used to play. A flash of pain, a scuffle, a horrendous howl, her brother, blood, blood blood everywhere - Make it stop, her mind whispered, I don't want... She squeezed her eyes shut to block out the mental imagery, shaking her head as she loses her posture and a small trickle of tears begin to drip down her cheek.

Just as quickly as the images come on, they fade equally as fast as Prism takes the first move, taking flight and raining bullets on Azure's position with a gust of wind so strong it blows Jocelyn's tears off her cheek. From the look on her face, it didn't look like anything had happened to Prism, which left Jocelyn in a state of slightly distraught confusion as she tries to comprehend what exactly happened just now. Just to make sure, she manually chambers a Ice Dust round and, channeling her Semblance, sends the bullet at Coco with the intent of dispelling any similar effect on him.

To Coconut's surprise, rather than launching an attack, Azure flies up to the rafters and takes a seat upon them. Moments later, a tune begins to play - one which has him feeling... a bit melancholic. He's still a bit bummed about Amane leaving, after all. Azure seemed cool, and she was a faunus, but... Hm.

What has him snap out of a slightly off mood is the gust of wind in his face, the sound of gunshots above and a reassuring smack of cold aura upon his back. He shakes his head, raises O.T.N. up with a grin upon his face, and goes for a swing, channeling his aura into the blow for a beam of it to be launched right at Azure's position!

...Sadly, the aura mostly dies off along the way, being uneven and jagged, and barely scratches the beam upon which Azure had taken position. At that distance, it's unlikely she'd be hurt even if she had been hit. Yeesh, Nut really needs to practice his aura beams.

Well, at least it had worked a little bit. That was better than none, right? Azure’s music cut off with a sharp twang as Prism flew up to meet her. Unfortunately, it seemed the effects hadn’t held for as long as she would have liked. If only she had an actual atmosphere to work with!

“Alright fine, cheater,” she said, her voice teasing, regarding the fact that Prism hadn’t needed to waste Dust to get up to where she was sitting. The wolf faunus stuck her tongue out playfully as let herself slide off the rafter. She dropped to the ground as she spun Renegade around, using the smooth back of the guitar body to shield herself. However, one of the three bullets collided with her shoulder as she dropped to the ground. She landed somewhat ungracefully, given her hurried descent and the impact of the bullet. She reacted quickly, though, as she launched a blast of fire up towards Prism.

Picking who to attack next, Azure set her sights on Coco. Using a blast of wind Dust, she launched herself across the arena towards him, swinging practically before she landed. It was a double attack: slashing first with the blades of her axe, then doubling back with an attack with the sharpened headstock of the guitar. She had chosen him over Jocelyn as Jocelyn, she though, had yet to contribute much to fight. As well, the blonde girl seemed to have been affected the most by her semblance, so Azure figured she could just use it against if Jocelyn tried anything.

“So you wanted me to come at ya, yeah?” She said with smirk as she had made her two attacks. Being rather tall for a girl, she would have been even in height with the male barefoot. However the thick soles of her boots added an extra inch, give or take a bit. While it wasn’t much to make for a height advantage combat wise, it did serve as an ego boost. She liked fighting guys for this specific reason; it made her feel tall, and Azure, unlike some girls she knew with a tall stature, enjoyed being tall. Mainly, she was a fan of the reactions some men had had to her height over the years, especially when she was in heels.

[Aura: 92%; 7% damage from the bullet, 1% fall damage from the unsteady landing]

[Fire: 5% burn dmg]
[Axe: 4% slashing dmg]
[Headstock: 3% slashing or piercing dmg]

Prism follows Azure up and over the rafter in the ceiling, front-flipping as her wings spread out to a still. She hits the ground a ways behind Azure with a small thud, and releases a sharp whistle; attempting to draw her attention and give Coconut a chance to land a hit. The bright-white cresecent that goes flying out of her blade with a quick downswing will probably help; aimed at just enough of an angle that it can't hit Coconut unless he does something stupid. There's still a chance Azure could catch it out of her peripheral vision though.

"So is that your semblance? Channeling mood manipulation through your guitar?" She questions. That's potentially very powerful - especially when evacuating a town to keep it's inhabitants calm, but maybe not so much against Grimm. Is it soul-based, or what? Note to self, ask Azure later.

Still in shock and confusion over what she just saw, Jocelyn reached one slightly shaking hand into her first aid pack, the other hand tightly grasping the body of Hyacinth, eventually withdrawing a Electric Dust crystal used to power the mini-defibrillator she had stored in the same pack. Rather than throw it at Azure or use it as a weapon, Jocelyn instead channeled her Aura through the Dust crystal - which with no outlet for the current to go through, just discharged the shock through herself for a few seconds. If her teammates weren't occupied, maybe they could see her body crackle and convulse from the voltage.

Whimpering from the pain, Jocelyn staggered backwards and just barely caught herself by using Hyacinth as a pole for support, but the shock had its intended effect - the images in her mind had cleared away, only leaving her slightly numb. Now free to snipe away since Azure had kindly decided to leave the healer alone, she unloaded her entire magazine on Azure as more of cover fire rather than precision sniping.

Jocelyn's Combat Log:
  ● Aura: [████████--] 91% (6% from electric shock)
  ● 0/7 bullets in mag (6 shots of 4% each at Azure, poorly aimed)

Nut's main concern would be the big ole ax and tall ole girl flying towards him. He brings up O.T.N. and parries her initial strike without breaking a sweat. Sure, there's solid force behind the swing, but in its long sword form he can keep his sword up against worse. Nothing a great fighter like Coconut can't handle -

He then takes the head stock to the bottom of his jaw and stumbles back. Alright, yea, he wasn't expecting that. Nut rubs his chin, grinning,

"Y-you're pretty good," he says. She is quick, so switching to sword sword form would help him keep up, and yet he couldn't afford to give up any leverage against an ax like that. His thought process is further disrupted as he hears a sharp whistle, followed by a slash of aura whizzing by him. He blinks and looks towards Prism.

She was clearly trying to distract the girl. Get him to strike at her while she wasn't paying attention... But that didn't feel right. Coconut wasn't one for underhanded tricks, and certainly not against his own teammates. He was about force, and if Azure could take that force and dish out her own, so be it. Instead, he readied his blade again.

"That alone won't be enough to break my aura, though. Or Prism's!" he shouted out. He was hoping she'd target him again. He had a 'plan' - as much planning he could do, at least.

“Yeah, something like that,” Azure replied to Prism, her tone playful as she stepped out of the way of the crescent attack. Having glanced over at Prism to answer her question, Azure had been able to catch sight of the white crescent in time to dodge. This could potentially leave her open to attack from Coconut, however she soon focused her attention back on him, as he was closest to her.

She smirked as the headstock of her guitar came in contact with his skull.
“Oh I’m more than just pretty good,” she scoffed, aiming another strike with her axe at his head. "I'm amazing." Hearing the crackle of electricity, she glanced over towards its source. Her eyes landed on Jocelyn just in to see her bringing up her rifle.

“Yeah maybe, but this might help.” She side stepped around Coconut, her hand reaching out to grab the back of his coat, pulling him in front of her to essentially use him as a human shield against the spray of bullets from Jocelyn.

“You know!” She called to the group as a whole, using wind to launch herself across the ring to Jocelyn. “I honestly might fare better if there were twice as many of you! Threes and fours are kinda my weak spot.” Her voice was filled with laughter, contradicting her action of swinging her axe at Jocelyn’s torso. It was true, once she got to five or six people her semblance had a stronger effect. With groups of three and four, she was uncomfortably outnumbered without the benefit of crowd control. At least with larger groups she would have been able to calm them all down enough for her to gain a more equal standing.
