A loud tapping foot could be heard permeating throughout the room. The source of this tapping being the new teacher known as Titania Crimsaber. Titania was an impatient woman one of her many flaws, class wasn't to start for another five minutes yet Titaina was growing ever bored. Today she was donned in her usual battle attire, Golden armor with crimson pieces as well as her large halberd held behind her her back with one hand. She was considered to be tall, very tall compared to most females, but she wasn't most females so it made sense.

She had prepared for a series of spars, and next to her was a small board with the rules of the class written clearly for all to see, as well as a couple of chairs set up for thoose to veiw the spars that would be taking place.  This class was simple four people would come in. Two will spar at a time in a series of battles, the winners of each duel would then fight each other. However on some days she would put certain limitations on what they could do such as no semblance usage, sometimes she would even reduce their physical attributes with help of modern day technology. Overall this class was just meant to be fun and a good way to let off steam, while improving the students skills at the same time.  

She wasn't very nervous herself, but excited as she had always been taught and now it was her time to pass on her knowledge to those who wished to be taught in return. She had hoped that slowly but surely she would begin to finally fit into a place..and not have it ripped away from her like it had in the past.

Sky had heard about the new teacher holding a sparring class,  and had to check it out. Fighting was definitely one of his favourite pastimes and there was really no better way to train. He walked into the arena, finishing his last bit of water. He waved to Titania but didnt head her way right away. Seeing he was early, he decided to refill his water bottle and grabb an apple from the refreshments they had for hungry people before or after a bout. He bit into his apple and shuffled the water bottle under his left arm, as he walked towards Titania. He pulled the apple away from his mouth with the same hand as he nears her, leaving his right open, which he promptly extended towards her in greeting. You must be Mrs Crimsaber, then? I'm Sky Richardson. Here for your class, of course, he said with a smile.

As always his swords Wind and Rain were strapped to his back, their custom dragon head hilts sticking up over his shoulders. The hilts were the same color as their blades: winds being a silvery white and rains being a blue so deep it looked black until it gleamed in the light. A typically cut diamond and a tear shaped sapphire were clutches in their respective mouths.

Cain had not yet found himself among the combat taking place in the training section of the school. That was going to change today, when he ventured his way toward a slowly growing mass of individuals including a man and a very tall woman. Cain assumed that this was the teacher due to a quick scan of her body type and age. Rather than actually join in on the group, he simply scoffed to make his presence known and sat on the ground cross-legged. He drew his blade and methodically dragged a whetstone across it repeatedly, humming a tune from his childhood. The blade never really dulled, and one could possibly even say that it was over sharpened at times, but after some time he plucked one of the longer hairs from his ponytail and sliced it longways on his sword. Only then was he satisfied with his handiwork and stood up to go lean against a nearby wall.

Merlynn was rather early she had been sitting in the back of the class room watching every one walking in. She had sneaked in being light on her feet the doe had watched as each person entered the room. or course merlynns weapon was nowhere in sight it wasn't even in the room.  the pixie haired faunus played with some long-strands of hair with her right hand as her dress hung loosely over her body. of course she covered her legs to be some what modest with her large half-skirt. her left hand how ever was playing with a scroll pulling up every ones profile who walked in to the room. the black bridal gauntlet over the hand didn't seem to hinder her fingers nimbleness. after all she had been here long enough she knew a few tricks with the small scroll and has had plenty of practice with it.  seeing as they where all first years she remained silent but had a allure to her as her dress did not hide the frame of her bust. but in reality her horns stood out the most showing she was a faunus. small she was standing only 5 feet 5 inches, but those who where around the school long enough might know of a doe faunus with a reputation for a bad temperament. she was here for the battles but also she was also assigned this class as a form of anger management.


Of course merlynn was watching those who had walked in like a hawk as her facial expression seemed blank. the first one she noted was the man who sharped his sword to such a point it split hairs with ease seemed to care a lot about his weapons condition. she might look at it later if they spar, the blades sharpness would be an issue to her if it came to close quarters.

now the other one was stranger as they approached the teacher having eaten and apple that did sound like a good idea but she was set as she had a large meal already in the morning. he seemed to have no weapons on him as well for right now. that was enough observation for now she just leaned forward placing her chin on to her left hand so its black texture contrasted against her pale skin and light hair.

Akui stirred to her ear being tickled. She jerked over in her bed to see Diablo having flicked his tongue on her earlobe, something she would have questioned and berated him for had she not heard her scroll beeping loudly. An alarm? What the hell? She hadn't set an alarm for months, there was no reason to.

Akui picked up her scroll and rubbed her eyes with the front of her forearm before giving it a good look. Wow, she really did set an alarm, but for what? Akui turned the alarm off and looked at the description. Class? F***ing hell, since when did she care about her schooling. Syne was just her home for now until she found something better to do, plus there were a couple of peeps here that he didn't mind so much. Akui quickly used her scroll to find the list of classes today, and she found one that caught her attention: Dueling Class. Huh? Fighting and not getting in trouble for it? Sounds dope, which was clearly what her thoughts had been earlier, hence the alarm.

It was also taught by a woman, meaning Akui had no reason not to go...well, not a good one anyway. Thus she got up and took her daily injection as per the norm, and dressed up in her baggy black pants, t-shirt (some EDM group logo that was a green heart with a yellow arrow piercing it), and hoodie. After fixing up her hair, her faithful friend slithered up her back and hung around her neck.

"Eh, you always wanna come with me, and I have no idea why, but...you know what, why the hell not? Let's go, Diablo." Her response seemed to please her slithery companion, as he bounced up and down a bit before hiding himself in her now zipped-up hoodie.

Though some things had changed, her pace had not: still a slow sluggish trudge from her dorm to the classroom door, which she stopped at to casually peek a bit before entering. It seemed that the teacher was a carrot top, and she had some pretty sick looking medieval armor, though she wasn't about to say anything. She just looked at the teacher and then a bit of an upward nod to show that she acknowledged her, then got up and sat way in the back and as far as she could from the other students. Then, she did what she always did: propped up her feet, stretched, and leaned back as she waited for something interesting to happen.

Titania after about another minute of waiting aoon saw A male student walk in and grab some items, before coming over and greeting her. Titania shook his extended hand and gave her own greeting "Yes I am, and nice to meet you Mr.Richardson" Her grip was probably a bit stronger than expected due to her prosthetic metal arm underneath the armored gauntlet, but she assumed he would be fine. She then backed away and did a sweep of the area. She saw two more people another male and a female. One was sharpening his sword, while the other propped herself up and relaxed. She did one more scan of the room to see another woman sitting in the far back area. Her horns stood out more than anything making her identity as a faunas clear.

Titania then took one more look around the room, before backing up slowly and looking at each of
the students, studying them with her emerald eyes and speaking.
"Hello, and nice to meet you my name is Titania Erza Crimsaber; You may refer to me however you wish to" Titania then took a deep breath and hardened her gaze once more, her dark orange fox ears blending with her hair.

"The rules of this class are simple, two people will spar at a random pick the winners of the two spars will then spar each other." "The first two spars are over when your aura goes under half." Titania then used her halberd to gesture toward the two screens near the front of the arena. "The final spar however, is to the knockout."
"Other than that, anything goes"


Titania then walked over to an apparatus on the other side of the area, and flipped a switch making the two screens flash beetween the students pictures rapidly. One landed on a picture of Sky, and the other landed on a picture of the faunas woman now revealed to be named Merlynn. Each picture had a blue aura bar beneath them.

"You two get on up there, and remember..Have Fun!"

Cain pushed himself off of the wall he was leaning on and hopped down into the arena. He was glad to see a bit of combat at a combat school after some time here, but felt a small amount of worry. 'I won't kill anyone.' He thought to himself. He didn't fight often in situations that don't require a killing blow, and accidentally forgetting occasionally glanced past him.

His thoughts however did not betray his stoic demeanor as he simply picked an open area of the arena and stood, tightening his armor and wobbling his sword in its scabbard. When he felt that his combat equipment was in sufficient shape and condition, he lifted his arms behind his head and ensured that his ponytail would not come undone at any point in the skirmish. He ran his fingers through the top of it to straighten it out before simply crossing his arms and awaited his two opponents to take up positions themselves. He took a deep breath though, breaking his silence.

"Then is this one to knockout then?" he asked considering how the rules had changed in this fight.

with a quick click of a switch there was the sound of a locker opening and merlynn picked up her sword by its hilt. a free for all this had turned in to which means no one was allies but every one was enemy this made it more fair if two students wanted to fight head on another could take advantage and take out which one they felt was the most threat. jumping down merlynn landed her legs tucked under her body so it cushioned the jump she soon stood up her sword was long at least 8 feet in length all straight like a plank. it easily dwarfed her in height if it was to be stood up on its tip.

She looked at the man and her face remained unchanged as she spoke. "free for all does leave this to a be a lot more interesting then just one on one battle. becuase in the field one is never always going to face on grim at a time." with that merlynn worked her hand so it was gripping her sword much like a tonfa, the blade was behind her touching the ground while she held the pommel up to keel it level with her arm. her hand was on the crossgaurd which was almost like another hilt for her to grab.

Free-For-All? Heh, that was a bit interesting at least. Still, nothing Akui couldn't handle: there had been a number of occasions where turf wars with rival gangs ended up with either a gathering of two or more opposing gangs, or another gang tried to use the current conflict to make a grab towards infamy, and while this was more focused on three individuals instead of three groups it wouldn't change much. If anything, it would only make this easier: no one to get in her way, no one to try and have her reconsider.

She slowly got up and made her way to what was being considered 'the arena' and stood as far from the other two as she could, then crossed her arms and slouched a bit. She studied them, and neither of them were remotely appealing: one was a male, which was already bad enough, but he had some dumb hairstyle and an overly-calm demeanor that she was for sure certain was a facade...but regardless, she didn't like him.

The other was some woman with...weird horns? A Faunus...great. The grimace on her face when she looked in that freak's direction was more than likely to be seen, but like she gave two s***s: Faunus were not trustworthy. Humans were bad too, but Faunus were naturally untrustworthy: I mean, they appear to be human and then suddenly they are coming at you with claws and fangs? The only Faunus Akui even remotely trusted was Riley, and even that was a bit shaky...but still solid.

Akui also noticed another thing: they both had their weapons drawn. Now as far as she knew, being armed meant you had the intent to either kill or seriously injure, but one glance at the teacher showed no sign of shock or attempt to stop them. Seemed a bit off that something considered as part of a class would allow something like this, but it wasn't her call. This teacher seemed a bit savage in that regard, and Akui didn't really have anything against that.

Akui then placed her hands on the middle of her back and stretched until she heard a crack, then yawned and followed that by scratching the back of her head and sitting down cross-legged. She then hung her head down and crossed her arms, hoping things would actually stay interesting.

Titania stood and looked at the three students in the arena. One seemed well mannered and and cared about appearance, another had an excessively large sword and seemed to be knowledgeable, while the third was either lazy or confident in her abilities as she simply sat down. She would pick apart their fighting styles as they fought.

She simply smiled for now looking each one over before speaking.
"This will be to the knockout, and as far as I care anything goes-However no deaths, and try to keep your destruction of the area to a minimum, but most importantly have fun."

She smiled once more before clicking another button making the screen zoom out and display a third health meter, while replacing Sky's with Cain's. Then a count down was displayed on the screen going from three to one, before finally displaying a "Go".

"Last man standing wins, and will receive a reward for the day this reward will be 10% of my pay for this lesson"
Titania them sat down and watched waiting to see who would instigate the fight, while setting her halberd down next to her.
