“Umm, Zed, I’m sorry about, well, err...if this is uncomfortable,” Ingrid stuttered shyly.

“It’s fine,” Zed quickly responded, “Just make sure you don’t fall off, given your condition I don’t think that’ll end well.”

Eventually, Arikore came into view, a giant castle-like building that was lit up by a multitude of lights. There were only a few more mountains and a long bridge to cross before they arrived. The closer they got, the more quiet the roads became.

“We’re almost there,” Zed informed, tilting his head back slightly.

“It’s fine,” Zed quickly responded, “Just make sure you don’t fall off, given your condition I don’t think that’ll end well.”

Ingrid nodded and held on more tightly. He seemed concerned about her wellbeing, and that made the princess grateful. But one thing she couldn’t help but notice was how his presence sent shivers down her spine, she could even feel her divine power tremble slightly when around Zed. Surely, there must be more to Zed than meets the eye if even the spirit of the Kraken within her was wary of him.

Her train of thought was broken when Zed made her aware that they had almost arrived at their destination.

“We’re almost there,” he said, tilting his head back slightly.

Ingrid looked past Zed’s shoulder and saw Arikore in the distance. But the further they travelled her condition grew worse, she felt a burning sensation in her eyes and a sudden tightness in her chest.

“Z-Zed, it’s getting worse, it really hurts,” The blue haired princess moaned.

「Taryn | Shinoa」

Taryn

“Alright then! Shopping first, then dinner! Why don't we start with getting good combat/workout clothes for class and then basic outfits for school based on the local style? I'm afraid all I brought are island appropriate clothes and we don't exactly get much variety in weather in the tropics.” She suggested, glancing down at her sandaled feet, blushing a bit as she took a step forward from where they stood at the train station steps.

“Sounds great,” Taryn said. “I’m sure weather will vary so best to be prepared for things we hadn’t already prepared for. Let’s head there.”

The Banasurian girl gestured towards the store mentioned earlier and led the way towards the store. Outside, she waited for the other two girls’ thoughts on the store.

 

Shinoa
Shinoa spent the day in her dorm. She didn’t want to go into town partially because she didn’t want to see people. Otherwise she just didn’t feel like going.

It was late when Amy entered the room. Shinoa was staring out the window from her bed.

“Shinoa?” She said in a quiet voice, “Shinoa? Are you here?”

The purple haired girl turned her head and gazed towards where Amy was. “Yeah I’m here. Why else would the lights be on?”

((Lol, it’s ok. Sorry about Shinoa :p

Just clarification for everyone:

Each dorm room includes a bedding area, a kitchen, a living room, and a bathroom.

The room’s apartment sized.

The living room only has 1-3 sofas or maybe 1 sofa and two chairs.
The rooms aren't that big.

The bedroom also has a study desk, nightstand, drawers, and a closet. Beds are bunk beds.))

((I don’t mind her :p. I was just under the impression that maybe she was somewhere else in the academy and not locked in her room all day, or maybe she went to sleep and left the lights on or something. Idek tbh.))

“Yeah I’m here. Why else would the lights be on?” Shinoa replied, looking down at Amy from her bed (wait, did Shinoa take the top? I forgot :P).

“Oh, my bad I guess,” Amy responded, scratching her nape in embarrassment for her lack of common sense. “It’s a shame you couldn’t come Shinoa, It was pretty fun. What were you doing here all day anyway?”

>Shinoa’s response here<

Looking at the time, Amy promptly changed into her nightgown and climbed into her bed. She switched on her phone and decided to text her mum and dad to let them know how she was settling in.

Ashley Kashu - Assassin

When Ashley emerged from a crowd of tourists (using her Echarian ninja skills to duck and dodge while Heru flew above) she noticed that Mavena and Tayrn were missing. Odd. Oh well. She'd find them later. She went into the store and immediately saw a good pair of boots that would be suitible for the climate of Kanouraska. It was a more temperate climate than she was used to and the winter would get cold. She could get winter gear when it got closer to the season. She tried on a pair that was her size and purchased the good leather boots. She also found an outfit that would be suitible for training in her favorite color combinations: sky blue, indigo and lavender. The training suit was apparently what they wore here because there were several different styles. The one she picked was simple, tight fitting but easy to move in. The colors went in stripes down her arms and legs. She had to admit she approved. Too bad Heru had no sense of style. She got a couple copies of the training gear so she'd have extras for when she needed to wash one and got it in both short and long styles to get what she needed for each season. She purchased them at the counter with her student credit card. The shop owner was very friendly, even advising her on where to get school supplies. Apparently her own daughter was in the blazing class ahead of Ashley's. Good to know. She thanked the woman, leaving the store with her arms loaded with parcels. Heru returned to her shoulder and cawed. Seh rolled her eyes and purchased her school supplies at the next store. "OK, where do you think we should go for dinner Heru? We should get something to eat and head back. I think we've done enough for today. I haven't seen anyone yet from the school and we seem to have lost Tayrn and Mavena." She asked her falcon and he cawed, pointing to a local restaurant with an outdoor area. "OK, looks and smells good too. Let's go see if we can get something to go." She told the falcon, heading over. She found they did do carryout and she ordered one of the dinner sandwich specials for herself and a meat platter for Heru. Turns out, Arikore students also got discounts here. Decent food too. She decided to sit down and eat to get off her feet for a bit and enjoy people watching 

(btw, Ashley is open for interaction since Tayrn and Mavena are no longer with her. Should I just go ahead and head back to the school?)

“Z-Zed, it’s getting worse, it really hurts,” The blue haired princess moaned.

Zed noticed how the girl tensed as she spoke. Though he was panicking, he maintained his cool demeanor and continued riding. “Hang in there,” he remarked.

Eventually, they arrived at Arikore. Zed rushed Ingrid to the Infirmary, where he explained the girl’s situation to the healers, but carefully omitted the fact that it was actually a fellow student who attacked her.

The healers rested Ingrid on a bed and put her to sleep. They informed Zed that she’d be treated overnight and that he should return to his dorm. The dark haired boy understood, and headed over to his dorm. His mind was thoroughly recounting everything he’d witnessed for when the higher-ups question him tomorrow. He couldn’t get his head around why Akeno attacked, and what she meant when she said something about fighting for those she loved.

((Timeskip to the next day))

((Got permission to control Ingrid for this part))

The next morning, Zed woke up earlier than normal and decided to check in on Ingrid to see how she was doing. When he arrived at the infirmary, one of the healers recognized Zed and nodded, gesturing that he was allowed to enter. As she left the room, Zed entered and sat on the chair beside Ingrid’s bed.

Ingrid’s eyes opened slightly at the sound of the chair moving, “Zed?”

“Hey,” Zed greeted, raising his hand. “So, how you doing?”

“I feel much better now, the healers did a great job. They just said that I should take it easy today to let my ki replenish.” she smiled.

“I see, that makes sense. Well, make sure you don’t do anything strenuous today then,” Zed advised.

“I won't, thanks,” the princess nodded. “Hey, can I ask you something?”

“Sure, what is it?”

“Why do you think she did that?”

“I wish I could answer that, but I don’t know.”

“I saw her as a friend, how could she betray me like that? I don’t think I’ve done anything to hurt her, so then why?” the blue haired girl said, tearfully.

“I don’t know...But I don’t think she wanted to, you know,” Zed remarked.

“What do you mean?” Ingrid asked.

“Well, it’s something that she said that I can't get my mind around. That reminds me, can you do me a favour, don’t tell anyone that it was Akeno, for now, please,” the dark haired boy pleaded. “I want to find out what she meant first, because I saw something yesterday that’s bothering me too.”

Ingrid sighed, “Alright, I’ll trust your judgement. Only because it’s you that’s requesting it,” she said, whispering the last part of her remark.

“Thanks so much, just leave all the question answering to me. I have a meeting with the higher-ups in the evening about what happened.” Zed informed, standing up. “Anyway, it’s great to see your doing well. You seem much better than yesterday. I’ll see you later then.”

Just as Zed was about to leave the room, Ingrid tilted her head and stopped him. “Hey, Zed!” she called out.

“Yeah?” the dark haired boy replied, looking back at Ingrid.

“Thanks, for everything. I really appreciate it.”

“No problem.”

((Timeskip to lesson))

Class 1-A had gathered in one of the Academy’s several training grounds. Acnologia and Miss Lili were already there waiting.

“Good Morning class, welcome to your second lesson,” she greeted, clasping her hands. “As you can see, the class has grown significantly smaller from the first day, this because some students have been moved into different classes for various reasons. However two students still seem to be absent, I’m aware of Ingrid’s absence, but I’m not sure where Akeno is. I’ll have someone investigate her whereabouts.”

So she didn’t return to the Academy, she must still be in the city, Zed deduced.

“Anyway, you’ve probably already figured this, but today will be another practical lesson,” Acnologia informed, crossing his arms. “Though it’s important to learn how to improve yourself, you will also be required to learn how to fight as a team and cooperate with one another. So today we’ve arranged a team battle: Harvan, Shinoa and Ashley VS Amy, Lucien and Zed.”

Zed looked towards Lucien and smirked, he then turned to Amy and gestured for her to stand with them.

Of course, this will also be a great opportunity for us to see each of your strengths and weaknesses, which we can then help you work on throughout the year.” the combat teacher added.

“We’ll give each team ten minutes to come up with a strategy for facing off against your opponents. I’ll inform you when times up,” Miss Lili explained further.

Ashley glanced over at Shinoa when it was announced she and the purple haired girl were paired off with the other guy, Havran. Heru was watching from the stands, perched on one of the seats. She glanced at him. The redheaded man was kinda cute but not her type. She wasn't sure she'd find romance here, but maybe she'd get lucky. There was a lot of cute boys here at the school. Acnologia was a tough teacher and she was looking forward to showing off her mirror talent. Her moon comb was in place as usual and she fingered her necklace, the labradorite shimmering in it's gold setting. She raised her hand, a question on her mind. She wondered if this was strict hand to hand or they were going to be using their blazing abilities today and their other tricks and skills

((she took top))

“Oh, my bad I guess,” Amy responded, scratching her nape in embarrassment for her lack of common sense. “It’s a shame you couldn’t come Shinoa, It was pretty fun. What were you doing here all day anyway?”
“Nothing in particular,” the purple haired girl replied and turned her back towards Amy. “I’ve been around town already. There’s nothing of interest to me there.”

(Timeskip)

At class, Miss Lili addressed the decreased class size, though Shinoa couldn’t care less. Acnologia then explained what the class was going to do. A team battle: Harvan, Shinoa and Ashley VS Amy, Lucien and Zed. The black haired boy looked towards Lucien and smirked and the blond grinned back. His best friend then turned to Amy and gestured for her to stand with them.

Shinoa glanced around her classmates to find who was in her team.

“We’ll give each team ten minutes to come up with a strategy for facing off against your opponents. I’ll inform you when times up,” Miss Lili wrapped up the instructions.

Shinoa recognized Ashley who raised her hand.

“Hey, Miss Lili,” the pastel purple haired girl called, “Ashley has a question.”

She then sidled up to Zed and Lucien and goaded, “Don’t think of anything naughty, boys.”

The blond blazer turned towards her and seethed with an inconspicuous frown, “Not a chance, now beat it.” He shooed the girl away with his hands.

Ashley glanced at Shinoa, a somewhat grateful look on her face since she wasn't sure if Miss Lili or Aconlogia had seen her. "I was just wondering if this was purly based on Blazing ability or are we allowed to use our other tricks of the trade?" She asked, glad to be able to put her arm down as she spoke. She was wearing her new black, blue and gold training outfit, her chosen color scheme. That way people would recognize her on the battlefield. It was sort of like a typical Ninja outfit but simpler, slightly tight around the elbows and knees, but lose around the chest, waist, wrists, ankles and shoulders. Her flat shoes were a simple martial arts style, perfect for her small feet. 

(Something like this:  but in the colors I described)

“Nothing in particular,” Shinoa replied and turned her back towards Amy. “I’ve been around town already. There’s nothing of interest to me there.”

“That makes sense, I guess.” Amy said.

The pink haired girl finished texting her parents and looked through her list of contacts, staring at the last name on the list- Zed. She managed to get the dark haired boy’s number after spending the day together. Her finger hovered over his name while she debated whether or not to text him. Eventually, she gave in to temptation, tapping on his name and writing a quick thank you message before putting her phone away and going to sleep.

(Timeskip)

Acnologia explained that the class was going to do a team battle, a 3v3. The pink haired girl felt a slight sense of joy when she found out that she would be on the same team as Zed.

Amy noticed Zed look back towards her and gesture for her to come stand with him and Lucien. Nodding, she walked up to the two boys and stood between them.

Shinoa then slid up to Zed and Lucien and goaded, “Don’t think of anything naughty, boys.”

“Not a chance, now beat it.” Lucien shooed Shinoa away with his hands.

Amy’s cheeks reddened, but for some reason she wasn’t as embarrassed as the first time Shinoa had teased Zed. She’d taken a liking towards the dark haired boy, and after getting to know him a little, she was slightly confident that the boy wouldn’t be having any vulgar thoughts of her...at least she hoped so.

“Hey, Miss Lili,” the pastel purple haired girl called, “Ashley has a question.”

Miss Lili nodded and looked over at Ashley, ready to hear her question.

"I was just wondering if this was purely based on Blazing ability or are we allowed to use our other tricks of the trade?" Ashley asked.

“Good question,” Miss Lili responded, “You’re encouraged to use your own techniques, as long as it does not involve the use of additional weapons, drugs, aid and etcetera.”

-

In the meantime, Shinoa had popped up to Zed and Lucien and began her teasing, “Don’t think of anything naughty, boys.”

Zed tilted his head but didn’t respond, choosing to ignore the girl. Luckily, Lucien was quick to respond and told the girl to get lost.

“Thanks Luce,” Zed muttered. “I actually can't wait finesse this b****.”

After the ten minutes was over, Acnologia had each of the teams face each other moments before the battle was set to begin. Cutting the air in half with his hand, the combat teacher sent gusts of wind on either side of him, signalling the start of the battle.

Zed stared expressionlessly at his opponents, summoning his katana and holding it in front of him with both his hands on the hilt. His main target was the scythe-wielder, but he didn’t intend to make the first move.

“Luce, Amy, leave Shinoa to me, alright? I don’t want any help. You two just keep the other two busy.” he requested in a low and serious tone.

At the end of ten minutes, the two teams faced off. Acnologia then signaled the start of the battle.

“Luce, Amy, leave Shinoa to me, alright? I don’t want any help. You two just keep the other two busy.” Zed requested in a low and serious tone.

The blond blazer nodded in acknowledgement of his friend’s request before eyeing the other two on the opposing team. He knew Havran was a capable fighter given mercenary background.

What have they planned? He wondered. Maybe-

Lucien’s thoughts were cut off when Shinoa summoned her scythe.

“Get ready for a trip to the infirmary,” she announced, her scythe igniting with flames.

The pastel purple haired girl then swung her scythe in an arc, sending flames at all three of her opponents.

Lucien grabbed Amy by the wrist and ran away from the line of fire, only narrowly escaping the attack. Still, the heat from the flames made him feel like he was toast.

“Are you alright?” he asked Amy, letting go her.

(Zed vs Shinoa battle music >Here<)

Zed quickly reacted to Shinoa’s attack, leaping away from the fire-like energy and rolling to safety. The dark haired boy narrowed his eyes, and used his viper strike to close the gap between him and purple haired girl, slicing through her just as he dashed past her. He then instantly activated his serpent shield to protect him against a possible counterattack from Shinoa before charging his hand with a green, fiery aura and firing his twin fang.  

 

 

 

 

(Just imagine the projectiles being fired from Zed's hand instead)

All three of the opponents managed to dodge Shinoa’s first attack. Zed, however, was quick to counterattack. The dark haired boy dashed at her, much faster than expected. The pastel purple haired girl didn’t have enough time to block the blow, but managed to move enough to minimize the damage. Acting quickly, she then unleashed a fire spin while he was close by.

She then charged directly at Zed, spinning her scythe to destroy the boy’s projectiles, and sliced at him downwards. When her scythe hit the ground, it erupted with an inferno right at Zed’s feet.

Shinoa leaped backwards and fired several blaze shots at the boy, not letting him rest.

(Multiples of those)

Ashley whipped into action, gathering blue and gold light in her hands to summon her blades and went after Lucien. She had an idea but needed him in one place before she could utelize her mirrors. She was a mirror walker. She could use that to her advantage. "Hey Lucien! Ever try facing off with a ninja trained warrior?" She asked, swinging her blades at him. She was fast, and glad for the lose workout clothing she got in town. She made a mental note to thank the lady who helped her at the store pick out the new outfit. She struck hard and fast, trying to get him to get closer to Amy. She needed to have at least two opponents to get into position for her mirror trap to be most effective.

Shinoa wasted no time, initiating the fight with a devastating fire attack. Zed and Lucien didn’t seem to have much trouble evading the attack but Amy feared she’d get hit and be eliminated too soon. Luckily, Lucien grabbed a hold of Amy’s wrist and ran her out of the direct attack, narrowly escaping.

“Are you alright?” the blond boy asked Amy, letting go her.

“Mhmm, thanks Lucien,” she nodded, “Shinoa doesn’t seem to be holding anything back, huh.”

In that moment, Ashley called out to Lucien, “Hey Lucien! Ever try facing off with a ninja trained warrior?" the girl said while swinging her blades at him.

“Oh no you don’t!” Amy muttered, debuffing Ashley with her discord and then bombarding her with energy spheres to get her off Lucien. “Sorry, Ashley, but I’ll be your opponent!”

Amy fluildly transitioned her Orb of Harmony over to Lucien and cast her protect command, granting the boy an energy barrier and increased resistances, “Lucien, don’t worry, I got your back. You just focus on taking out Harvan, I should be able to keep Ashley busy. Just give me a shout when you need help.”

Ashley yelped as she felt the first sphere of energy hit her. It had to be Amy of all people. Ugh. She twirled, using her blades like lightsabers to deflect the attacks. "OK, if that's how you wanna play it..." She mused, leaping to attack the pinkish purple haired girl. "Fine by me! Time to show you what a mirror walker can do!" She replied, using her mirrors to throw up a barrier between the other girl's spheres and herself. Now it was time to put them to work. 

Ashley had to move fast, bringing the barrier mirror with her. She bent it, making it form a mobile domelike wall around her. She wasn't going into the mirror world, not yet. She smirked, she was in the perfect position when she saw Amy had a few of her orbs going. Perfect. Just what she was hoping for. A quick flick of her wrists, the blades in her hands reflected the light, generating more mirrors that formed a dome over Amy and kept the others out. "Try getting out of my mirror dome! Not many can!" Ashley called, jumping into one of the mirrors so that multiple images of herself appeared within them. . Within, out of the corner of her eye and over her shoulder, she could already feel the effects of the mirror world and recognized the location. It was what she called a gravity zone. Where gravity tended to act funky if you weren't standing in just the right place. Thankfully she knew this gravity zone well. She was standing in the perfect place to be reflected in all the mirrors. If this didn't work, she'd have to get out of the mirror world to get back in the physical fighting.

Havran Frieden - Fighter

As Shinoa and Ashley fought Zed and Amy respectively, Havran was left to fight Lucien. He noticed Amy buffing Lucien before she fought Ashley though he was unsure what kind of buff it was. With that in mind, the redhead summoned his lance.

((Imagine his lance being summoned that way.))

As soon as his lance fully materialized in his hand, Havran twirled it, manifesting energy spheres around him.

“Heh, it’s been awhile since I get a good fight. This’ll be fun,” he uttered as a vicious smile crept to his face. He swung his lance, sending three spheres hurling towards Lucien. Midway, the left and right spheres diverted their course to attack Lucien from the sides while the center focused on the front. Then, he shattered them into a handful of energy arrows.

“Mhmm, thanks Lucien,” Amy nodded, “Shinoa doesn’t seem to be holding anything back, huh.”

Lucien agreed, but before he could reply, Ashley called out to the blond, “Hey Lucien!”

He looked in the direction of the ninja, instinctively summoning his sword to prepare to fight.

“Ever try facing off with a ninja trained warrior?" the girl said, swinging her blades at him.

Lucien fended off her blows and jumped back when Amy fired her orb at Ashley, then bombarding her with energy spheres. “Sorry, Ashley, but I’ll be your opponent!”
Amy then fluildly transitioned her orb over to Lucien and casted a protective energy barrier and increased resistances on him, “Lucien, don’t worry, I got your back. You just focus on taking out Harvan, I should be able to keep Ashley busy. Just give me a shout when you need help.”

He nodded, “Likewise.”

The blond then turned his full attention on Havran who twirled his lance, forming three energy spheres. The redhead then flung the spheres at Luce. The sword wielder narrowed his eyes and raised his sword over his shoulder behind the back. As all three spheres started to close in, he activated a sonic leap, springing himself forward and out of the way of the attack. He then counterattacked, sending shards of ki at Havran. Lucien then landed and used a combo attack on Havran.

When Lucien counterattacked with shards of ki, Havran immediately brought seven spheres in front of him and formed them into a hexagon, shielding him from the shards. Then, he imbued his lance with his ki and held it defensively as Lucien bombarded him with a combo attack, blocking the blonde’s attack. As soon as he saw an opening, Havran countered Lucien’s attack, performing the same combo before leaping back and commanding dozens of energy spheres to rain down upon the blonde.

Once Lucien finished his combo, Havran countered, performing the same combo.

How is he reproducing my exact movements? He wondered as he parried the combo.

The redhead then leaped back and unleashed dozens of energy spheres to rain down upon the blonde.

Luce knew there was no way he could dodge his way out of this one. He formed a barrier with his ki around him, nullifying the energy spheres.

I have to figure out how he replicated my moves, he thought, If there’s some ability he has that enables that, then I’ll have to figure out how to disrupt it.

The blond then ran towards Havran, firing streams of ki from his sword as he closed in. Once he was within range, he unleashed a combo of slashes and stabs. He also observed Havran’s movements closely.

Zed Arubok

Shinoa quickly turned around to face Zed and unleashed a fire spin. Thankfully, Zed’s barrier mitigated the damage from the attack. But the girl wasn’t finished, she accurately sliced down at Zed, cutting his chest. Without letting up, she swung her sword into the ground, creating a devastating explosion under Zed’s feet.

“Gaah!” the dark haired boy cried as he was thrown into the air.

Matters only grew worse when she started to overwhelm Zed with bursts of fire. He could only dodge so many, until he was eventually hit by the explosion, knocking him back. Getting close to this brat and evading her attacks is such a difficult task thanks to her large area of effect, it also helps in creating fewer openings for me to strike as she’s less exposed from different angles. How should I fight this? Zed narrowed his eyes, I know, if I can't wait for an opening...I’ll create one myself!

Zed altered his stance as he activated his mamba force, which greatly enhances his movement and attack speed. With his new speed, Zed juked out of the way of the fire blasts and confronted Shinoa in a head-on assault. Zed’s faster attacks helped him to push Shinoa back, enabling him to fight more aggressively.

Zed suffered a direct hit from an inferno and later a hit from one of Shinoa’s blaze shots.

I’ll just make it a solid win with a couple more hits, she figured while continuing to send flames at the boy.

But to her surprise, he eluded the blasts with a new burst of speed and confronted the scythe wielder in a head-on assault. She found herself being pushed back and put on the defensive as Zed grew more aggressive with each attack.

“You’re quite stubborn. Hm, maybe you're scared of losing. Aru- bok bok bok- a chicken?,she teased as they clashed again.

Using his energy spheres, Havran blocked the streams of ki Lucien fired towards him. Then, the blonde unleashed a flurry of slashes and stabs. Again, Havran held his ki-imbued lance defensively. He was about to perform the same movement but decided against it as he felt that it would be too arduous to replicate it entirely. Instead, he condensed his counter into a single slash followed by a stab with the same damage output.

Havran held his ki-imbued lance defensively throughout Lucien’s attack. However, once the blond finished his combo, the redhead didn’t return the same attack. Instead, he counterattacked with a single slash Luce barely had time to evade and a stab he nearly was unable to block. It took quite the maneuvering of his body to duck so far and then turn his body forward so when he brought his sword up to counter the stab, he wouldn’t throw himself off balance. As a result of the hasty block and the amount of power the attack had, he only mitigated little of the clash.

Havran’s quite a force to be reckoned with, he thought as he regained poise, panting slightly. How can I break through his defenses? He’s able to block everything whether it’s with his energy spheres or his lance. Think, Lucien!

He decided to stick with using regular stabs and slashes as he regained some mana and thought about how to fight Havran effectively.

Havran Frieden - Fighter

“Oof, that was a close one,” Havran commented when his lance nearly slashed Lucien. The blond managed to block his attack, regained his poise, and proceeded with another barrage of slashes and stabs. Havran held his lance defensively again, preparing to counter.

“C’mon, Luce. This combo doesn’t work against me. Try something else,” he said somewhat in encouragement before countering, this time performing the same movement.

"Try getting out of my mirror dome! Not many can!" Ashley called, jumping into one of the mirrors so that multiple images of herself appeared within them.

“What the-?!” Amy shook her head as she found herself trapped within a pocket dimension. Everything looked reversed, it was so weird. The pink haired girl knew she was at a disadvantage given the situation, thus she switched to defense. She didn’t know the effects of this dimension, but she did know that maintaining this world would consume tonnes of ki and would be strenuous on the creator. All she had to do was remain defensive and force Ashley back into the real world. With her plan set, Amy activated her protect command and her harmony command upon herself, shielding and healing herself constantly. Now it was just a waiting game.

Recognizing that the redhead was replicating the combo, he smiled as he realized he just happened to have created an opening for himself...given that Havran’s skill at imitating his exact moves wasn’t from pure genius and was some sort of ability. Lucien dodged the first part of his combo, five consecutive thrusts. He then immediately dodged to Havran’s side for the next part of the combo imitation, which was a downward slash followed by two upward cuts which would generally leave the sides vulnerable. The blond then slashed in a slanted upwards direction.

“You’re quite stubborn. Hm, maybe you're scared of losing. Aru- bok bok bok- a chicken?,” she teased as they clashed again.

Zed narrowed his eyes, What’s wrong with this b****?! He said to himself. His anger allowed some of the sinister and maleficent ki from the Basilisk, which he was suppressing, to seep into his regular ki. However, this minute trace of evil ki can only be detected by another legendary guardian.

Ashley smirked, using her illusions to her advantage. She shot her katana through the mirrors, the copies mimicking her and sending their weapons as well. She used her swords with her mirrors in perfect sync. She needed to debuff Amy to be able to take her down. That healing command in particular would be a problem. "What do you think of my little pocket dimension? I can use my mirrors to do just about anything here. The Mirror World isn't like our world. I can manipulate it as much as I want. But watch out for Vitrina. They can get a little...clingy." Ashley taunted, making sure to set up a barrier around her pocket of the Mirror World to keep Vitrina out of the way as she focused her attention on Amy

「Shinoa」

Zed narrowed his eyes, clearly angry. Shinoa smirked, though not completely satisfied with the reaction she got out of the black haired boy. She planned to goad some more, however, noticed something subtly different about Zed.

“Oh, what’s this?” she asked, almost with all seriousness, “Oh! Could it be?”

There's something different about that boy's ki. Well that just makes this more entertaining, the scythe wielder thought.

“You’re really a chicken!” Shinoa taunted.

She stepped back, rotating her scythe around her. The girl then swung it in an arc overhead and downwards at Zed, cracking the ground where it hit. She then reversed course, bringing her scythe up in an uppercut, summoning an inferno on that spot.

“What are you going on about?” Zed growled, “Focus on the battle in front of you, idiot!”

“You’re really a chicken!” Shinoa taunted.

“You just don’t shut up, do you?” Zed retorted, continuing to slash at the girl with his katana.

Shinoa took a step back, rotating her scythe around her. The girl then swung it in an arc overhead and downwards at Zed, cracking the ground where it hit. She then reversed course, bringing her scythe up in an uppercut, summoning an inferno on that spot.

“That won't work a second time,” Zed said confidently, leaping into the air for his next strike. He then dashed at the girl midair, dodging the erupting flames and damaging the girl simultaneously. She should be low enough by now, I’ll end this with my next attack.

“Not bad,” Amy smiled, “I’m almost jealous...almost. The bad thing about mirrors, though, is that they’re easily shattered.”

The pink haired girl’s plan was working, her defense was holding up perfectly. She could feel the ki from the pocket dimension weakening. “Just a little longer,” she mused.

“You just don’t shut up, do you?” Zed retorted, continuing to slash at Shinoa with his katana.
“Hehe, nope.”
The black haired leaped into the air to avoid getting hit. He then dashed at the pastel purple haired girl midair, dodging the erupting flames and damaging her simultaneously.

Crap, Shinoa thought. She had been inflicted with some condition that damaged her over time since the first time Zed touched her. That along with this direct hit took quite the toll on her.

The girl spun her scythe in front of her defensively, facing Zed. He was proving to be harder to defeat than expected. She slowed her scythe to a stop before dashing head on with a burst of fire to propel her up and forward as she unleashed several blaze shots at Zed at once, aimed to hit him at multiple angles.

Ashley Kashu - Assassin

Ashley had a feeling she knew what Amy was planning. Shattered mirrors meant less chance to escape and less time in the Mirror World. She needed to move fast and break her defenses. Her pocket dimension in the mirror dome wouldn't last long. Maybe 10,15 minutes tops if she was lucky. She didn't use this trick too often - not with multiple opponents anyways. Right now though, she used it to contain one opponent. Which was reasonable for her to maintain the pocket dimension for so long. Animal communication wouldn't be much help here. Neither would her healing abilities. She needed to work more with what she had and improve on it. She needed to figure out what else she could do with the mirrors. She got an idea. One of her cousins was a mirror manipulator, what was that ability called? Ah, hyalokinetic constructs! She wondered....she focused, shattering two of the mirrors on her own, focusing on what she wanted. To her delight, the mirrors formed into a dragon made entirely of glass, wings spread and roaring in challenge. So she unlocked a new ability! Sweet! 

(this ability is called a hyalokinetic construct, something a mirror manipulator can do - see the Superpower Wiki for more details, it's a sub ability but if it's ok with the guys in charge, I can add it to my character sheet along with another couple mirror based abilities I found on there that mesh well with what she does. Like maybe, one or two more abilities)

(just two or three sub abilities for combat: hyalokinetic constructs - basically using mirrors to create things like the dragon in my last post, glass barriers for defense (with limited time of course), a basic polishing effect (to shine mirrors for use in travel, nothing more), and shard manipulation, basically using mirror shards in an attack without the constructs)

Amy raised an eyebrow when a glass dragon appeared in front of her and roared. It was seemingly created from several mirrors that Ashley had shattered.

“I should have known she’d pull out an annoying tactic, this was seeming to easy.” The pink haired girl muttered. “Well, I guess all that means is that she’s wasted more of her ki creating that thing. Good.”

Amy smirked, “Congratulations, Ashley, I might have to stop holding back now. As impressive as that dragon is, it’s like I said, glass is easily shattered.” she taunted. The Support held her Orb between her hands and started channeling energy into it.

Zed Arubok

Backed into a corner, Shinoa dashed forwards and fired multiple blaze shots simultaneously. However, to Zed’s advantage, the shots seemed to have been fired at random and lacked accuracy. But just in case, he activated his serpent barrier in case.

“What’s wrong? Dust in your eyes?” Zed taunted swiftly moving behind Shinoa. “Checkmate! Sorry but it looks like I win,” he smirked, sliding his fingers across the length his bade, charging it with energy. When he locked on to Shinoa, he slashed the air, releasing a wave of energy which proved fatal, striking Shinoa down.

“What’s wrong? Dust in your eyes?” Zed taunted swiftly moving behind Shinoa.

The scythe wielder only managed to turn half way, unable to defend herself from the boy’s next move.

“Checkmate! Sorry but it looks like I win,” he smirked, sliding his fingers across the length his bade, charging it with energy. He slashed the air, releasing a wave of energy which proved fatal, striking Shinoa down.

Ugh, that brat, the pastel purple haired girl thought. I didn’t think he’d pi.ss me off this much.

The critical hit would have taken anyone else in her place out. However, she gained a full stack of flame feathers over the course of the fight now available for use. Shinoa consumed the feathers, feeling as if she was getting reborn as her health was restored to full.

The scythe wielder stood up and spun her scythe around her before resting it on her shoulder. She cocked her head to the side slightly and smirked, “It was nice playing with you but you’re pis.sing me off.”

She lifted her scythe off her shoulder and lowered it to waist level on her side before swinging it horizontally, producing a fiery form of a phoenix. The phoenix rushed at Zed, engulfing him with flames and knocking him backwards. The phoenix continued to grow larger and stronger as it continued rushing across the entire battlefield, the flames taking up the entire field’s length. It knocked into Havran and Lucien, shattered the mirror domes and glass dragon, and knocked into Ashley and Amy, dealing severe burns and heavy damage to each of the blazers and pushing them as far as out of bounds.

After the flames flew out of the training field and dissipated, Shinoa lowered her scythe and observed the remnants of the training field.

Maybe...I overdid that...she thought.

Lucien was in the middle of attacking Havran, possibly finally land a hit, when flames came rushing into him and Havran and disrupted the fight. He barely managed to change course of his sword and hold it in front of him to defend himself but it was no use.

The flames engulfed him and knocked him unconscious immediately as he was sent flying out of the battlefield, knocked out cold.

Havran barely dodged Lucien’s attack, though the blade caught his black blazer, slicing it. He chuckled at his carelessness as he readied himself to strike back. Before he could do so, however, when he saw flame rushing to both him and Lucien alarmingly fast. He only managed to use his remaining spheres to shield himself, which he knew would prove futile, before he felt agonizing pain and blacked out.

Amy had almost finished charging her attack when suddenly the pocket dimension began to heat up like and inferno. The pink haired girl wiped the sweat beads off her forehead and started looking around in confusion.

“Why has it gotten so hot all of a sudden? Is this your doing, Ashley? I wasn’t expecting this something like this.” Amy remarked. But before she could hear Ashley’s response the glass world shattered into thousands of tiny pieces. A giant phoenix burst into their battle and consumed the glass dragon, destroying it easily. “What in the world?! Where did that thing come from?!” she exclaimed in a panic. It then raced towards Amy and Ashley, it was so large that dodging would be impossible, her best chance was to create a barrier. But it was futile. The fiery spirit effortlessly broke Amy’s defences, inflicting massive damage and sending her flying out of the ring. The last thing she saw before everything went black was raging flames surrounding her.

Ashley yelped as the phoenix appearerd, destroying her dragon construct. She had absolutely no idea where the bird came from! "No! I swear, this isn't me! I can't summon a phoenix! Just mirrors!" She protested, glancing at the support girl. She saw Amy go down outside the mirror world. She dove out of her mirror before it shattered, escaping just in time to see her opponent surrounded in flames. She felt the heat of the attack scorching her skin and cried out, earning an alarmed shriek from Heru. She could tell she was hurt just as badly as Amy - if not worse from her time in the mirror world when that thing attacked. Heck, it even destroyed her first construct! She was on her knees, barely keeping her eyes open. She made a mental note to murder whoever summoned that thing before she passed out completely

Zed Arubok

Zed turned his back to Shinoa after he thought he’d won and prepared to assist his teammates. There was no denying that Shinoa was a skilled fighter, but after he’d been told that she was offered a place at Arikore through her combat capability alone, he was slightly disappointed. But he decided not to ponder about it too much, right now he needed to focus on winning. After considering his options, he decided to help out Amy, knowing that Lucien would be able to hold his own.

Suddenly, a voice called to him from behind, “It was nice playing with you but you’re pis.sing me off.”

“What the f***?! How?! That’s impossible! But I defeated you?!” Zed exclaimed, a look of horror on his face as he witnessed Shinoa rise with a fiery aura covering her body, as though she’d been resurrected somehow.

-

“So that’s Shinoa’s resurrection ability,” Miss Lili remarked. “I heard about it from the admission team.”

“I see,” Acnologia nodded, “You know, I have a hunch, based on all the abilities she’s demonstrated. What makes things more convincing is that she is part of the Hiiragi family. But it may be too soon to jump to conclusions.”

“I think I know what your talking about, It would make sense.” said the dark purple haired teacher.

-

Shinoa lifted her scythe off her shoulder and lowered it to waist level on her side before swinging it horizontally, producing a fiery form of a phoenix.

“Oh for f*** sake! You have got to be kidding me! The Phoenix?! Really?! Why her?!” Zed cursed.

The girl smirked mischievously before sending the Phoenix rushing towards Zed, engulfing him with flames and knocking him backwards.

“Oh s***!” the dark haired boy muttered, knowing there was no escape.

The phoenix continued to grow larger and stronger as it continued rushing across the entire battlefield, the flames taking up the entire field’s length. It knocked into Havran and Lucien, shattered the mirror domes and glass dragon, and knocked into Ashley and Amy. Even after being restrained, it’s immense power overwhelmed all the Blazers and seemingly defeated everyone.

-

Without a second thought, Acnologia rushed into the flames, followed by Miss Lili. Despite the fire, He was able to quickly sense the ki of each individual student and rushed over to check their conditions. Nearly all the students had been knocked out of bounds and were unconscious. There was only one more student left to find. The combat teacher focused, locating Zed, who still appeared to be on the battlefield. He thrust his arm, creating a powerful wind which blew out the flames and revealed Zed. Surprisingly, the boy hadn’t been knocked out, he was on his knees with his sword pinned into the ground and breathing heavily.

“How?! He took the attack head-on as well!” Acnologia mused, staring at Zed in disbelief. Moments later, the exhausted boy collapsed. “Get them all outta here.” he said emotionlessly, looking over at Shinoa.

(Timeskip to the infirmary, you can all RP as though your char is waking to find themselves in a hospital bed, except Shinoa, Ingrid and Akeno.)

「Lucien | Shinoa」

Everyone appeared to have been knocked out of bounds. However, after the flames dissipated and Shinoa acquired a clear view of things, she saw Zed still struggling to hang on. The boy was on his knees with his sword pinned into the ground and breathing heavily.

Stubborn, the pastel purple haired girl thought, but deep down acknowledged Zed for being able to survive despite the direct hit. Moments later, the exhausted boy collapsed.

“Get them all outta here,” Acnologia said emotionlessly.

Shinoa met his glance and nodded, unequipping her scythe. She then went on to do as she was instructed.

✧ ✧ ✧

Shinoa leaned against the wall of an infirmary hallway with her hands folded behind her back. She waited for her classmates to wake up.

It’s not like it actually harms them, the purple haired girl thought.

✧ ✧ ✧

Lucien woke with a jolt, sitting up to find himself in a hospital sort of setting. He looked around him, Is this the infirmary? Why am I here?

He then remembered the raging flames being the last thing he saw and felt. The blond blazer touched his arm gingerly. His skin was tingly and numb.

I wonder how everyone else is. Zed probably took the hit hardest since he was the one fighting Shinoa. I hope he’s ok, Luce thought, looking down at his hands. Still, why is she that powerful?
