Raevus was shaken for a moment at the girl's response, then immediately threw back his head and bellowed a laugh. He smiled again, saying "No need to worry about a thing." Her voice was small and thin.
Raevus continued to try and push to seem as friendly as he could. "Yeah, I'm new here. By the looks of it, you are too." Tilting his head down in greeting, he introduced himself. "I'm Raevus. Rae, if you want." He looked back up at her, and said with a grin "...aaand I don't believe I caught yours."


"Oh, ummm. I'm Melody, Melody Rainfall. It's very nice to meet you, Rae." She smiles and laughs nervously after she introduced herself. Melody then Accidentally dropped Her pistols and her music player when some of the students bumped into her. She started to panic. "Uhh oh! I'm So sorry about that!" She said as she started picking up her pistols quickly.

"Melody," Raevus whispered, letting the name sit on his lips a moment. Melody sure was a handful. Every word she said seemed aching with shyness as if she'd been facing a Grimm all alone. Or maybe she'd been super excited to attend Beacon and held it in? Raevus was like that sometimes, but when Melody dropped her pistols brushing against an oncoming student, Raevus thought she might be too entertained... "Nah, I've got it." Raevus knelt and handed the pistols to Melody, momentarily admiring them. Placing a hand on her shoulder, he beckoned "We better get a move on with the crowd. Wouldn't wanna stop traffic."

"thank you." She sets her pistols both sides of her belt carefully, then later picked her music player and put it in one of her pockets. She nods to him. "y-yeah, we're better get going." She said. Raevus was sure nice to her, it's probably the first time she ever met someone like Raevus and she was glad though. Melody then followed everyone, hoping she won't drop her pistols again.

Once everyone had gathered in the Amphitheater, they were greeted by a man with white hair and glasses, wearing all green, holding a cane and standing in front of a microphone. This was Professor Ozpin, headmaster of Beacon Academy, standing with Glynda Goodwitch at his side. "Ahem... I'll keep this brief." he began, pushing up his glasses. "You have travelled here today in search of knowledge. To hone your craft and acquire new skills. And when you have finished, you plan to dedicate your life to the protection of the people. But I look amongst you and all I see is wasted energy in need of purpose, direction. You assume knowledge will free you of this but your time at this school will prove that knowledge can only carry you so far. It is up to you to take the first step." With that, he stepped off the stage and Glynda Goodwitch took his place, saying "You will gather in the ballroom tonight. Tomorrow your initiation begins. Be ready. You are dismissed!" With that, she too left the stage and the new students started to disperse.

(Up to you guys if you want to keep tonight going with talking to eachother, or move on to the next day, where we do the initiation test)

(I vote that we move on to the next day for the initiation test!)

 

The students dispersed, all led to the ballroom for an impromptu sleepover. Onyx was more than happy to set up his sleeping bag by Lucas, glancing around at the rest of the students as they relaxed for the night and got ready for a well deserved rest. Everyone had changed into their pajamas. Onyx himself was wearing a...Grimm onesie. It was black with white designs on it made to look like bones, and on its hoodie a design that was meant to look like a Beowolf skull. It had two strategic holes on the hoodie for his horns, too. He sat on his makeshift bed, holding his scroll as he was recording a call for his mother. "Hey mom! Guess who got to Beacon! We're sleeping over at the ballroom for tonight. Tomorrow's the initiation, so wish me luck!" Onyx said with a smile, recording the ballroom around for a few moments before turning the camera back to him. "Oh yeah! I already made a friend!" Onyx said as he made his way to Lucas, pulling him playfully into the shot. "Meet my friend Lucas! Say hi Lucas!~"

"You have got to be kidding me..." Lucas said, when he saw Onyx's onesie, as was pulled into the shot.  "How old are you?"  Lucas had changed into a black shirt and shorts, his sleeping attire.  They had stored their gear in lockers in preparation for tomorrow.

Onyx smiled. "I'm 17 years old and counting!" Onyx hummed, laughing cheerfully. "I'll call you after the initiation and tell ya how it went! Bye mom! Love you! Say hello to Helio Trope for me!" Onyx said, waving at the camera. He finished the recording and reviewed it, and after deciding that it was good, he pressed the sent button for it to arrive at his mother's scroll all the way at Mistral. He looked back at Lucas, playfully sticking his tongue out. "What? You have to admit that this looks very comfy and cool! Which it is, by the way." Onyx said, putting his scroll away as he lay on his back. "Hey, Lucas. Even if we don't end up in the same team...can we still be friends? I really like you. You're a cool person. A very cool friend." Onyx said with a soft smile.

"That." Lucas said, gesturing to his outfit.  "Would only be cool to a 10 year old.  It's something a kid would wear.  We're almost adults Onyx, you should get some real pajamas, like what I've got."  When asked if they could still be friends, he replied "Of course, however we still don't know how they set the teams up, we don't know anything, other than there will be teams, and we'll be stuck with them for the next four years."

As the students fled in the frenzy of which they came, Raevus got a glimpse of the others. He'd never seen the Faunus before, so he was mesmerized at the amount of animal parts he saw around — rabbit ears, monkey tails, and sharp teeth. In a way, Raevus shifted slightly, discomfit by what he'd seen to say the least, but nevertheless, Faunus were people. So that was enough. He tried to ease his mind with that thought.

Somehow, through the whirlwind of people, he'd lost sight of Melody. And everyone else seemed to be on their way, so Raevus decided to leave, hoping that they'd be meeting again soon.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Raevus glinted in the bathroom mirror at his earring; a star-shaped icon with sharpened sides, like a Shiruken. It was a bit dull and worn after such long use. Before it was his, was his grandmother's, and great grandmother's before that. His wise grandmother used to always speak —

'This family artifact represents every bit of what we've accomplished, Ra. The Krysse family has toiled for generations creating something like this. Do you understand what this means?! It carries with it the very essence of your forefathers within! You child, now, you have it easy. But our family has been through burden and duty since the very beginnings of man of dust and of Grimm, Ra.' Raevus' grandmother would snap for his attention, as if her story was the most important thing in world.

'Ra, boy! You have a responsibility! To make our forefathers and your mother proud! When you carry this, the spirit of Krysse runs through your blood. You mustn't forget the power that family holds.'


Raevus' grandmother was nearing the end of her years as of now. She'd grown old and her mobility grew shaky. It seemed to take the life from her to even make her own famous Eokuri, a specialty of hers. A "family secret" that she seemed to be taking with the grave to her. Raevus washed his face, and clasped the earring against his forefinger and thumb. It was a brittle, rough texture, hardened by generations of forgery. It was honestly an old piece of junk, but he wore it for his grandmother.

Raevus walked out of the room, changing into a pair of sweatpants and a tank top that showed the outlines of his angular body, which was far too tight. Grandma insisted 'Ra, our Krysse men are born charmers. Yet, none to this day laid eyes on a passionate woman who'd keep up with them! Let me not catch you being the first!' The thought made him glance for Melody, but he immediately stopped as soon as he realized it. A sigh, and a smile aroused Raevus' lips at the memories he shared.

Raevus picked a comfortable spot to rest at, and did just that after having friendly banter with some other students, and to his surprise even Faunus. At times, he couldn't tell them apart, but he was always reminded at the twitching ears or shaking tails. But alas, Beacon as Raevus' new home for awhile... He didnt mind at all.

After Professor Ozpin's first appearance and speech, Melody turned around and realized that she lost Raevus. She wonders. "i guess he got things to do. Oh well." She then left to change. She changed into her pajamas, a tank top with a puppy with a bow on its head and had a word saying "cutie", and just a pair of blue shorts. Melody then picked a spot to set her sleeping beg neatly, laying down on it as she's starts writing a letter for her brother.

The next day, after breakfast, all the first years were gathered in the locker room, gearing up for their initiation. Lucas grabbed Sogeki Ken, pulled it out and changed it into the sniper form, pulling it onto his back. He felt it would be easier to carry on his back like this, rather than holding it in katana form. Suddenly, everyone could hear Glynda's voice over the intercoms. "Would all first year students please report to Beacon Cliff for initiation? Again, all first year students report to Beacon Cliff immediately."

Onyx strapped on his gauntlets. Today was initiation day, and he hoped he would make it out alive. Of course he would, right? He smiled, activating his gauntlets. The gauntlets quickly expanded, covering his forearm and hands in smooth, black metal. The orange screen showed his current status, including heart rate and energy. He could feel the gauntlets already helping him focus his aura around his hands. He reached into his pocket, taking out some dust as he proceeded to pour it inside the gauntlet's dust chambers. Once he was done, he sealed them back up and gave a few experimental punches. He was ready. "Just you wait. I'm going to become a hunter in no time!" He hummed, smiling. He lifted his head at the announcement. "Beacon Cliff? Oh boy." Onyx said, gulping slightly. He expended the worst, seeing that they were going to meet at a cliff out of all places. He closed up his locker and proceeded to walk off, following the masses of students towards the cliff, where they would all be meeting for initiation...whatever it would end up being.

"Welp, time to go." Lucas said to himself, crabbing a couple different dust ammo clips, putting them into a pouch on his lower back. He followed Onyx and several other first years to the cliff.

Raevus went with the motions of the next day, things weighing on his mind. He got to know other students at breakfast, then headed off to Beacon Cliff, weapon in tow.

Melody went to her locker to get her twin pistols, opening it up and placed her pistols on her sides. She also got some a couple of dust ammo clips and putting them into her pouch, later gets the normal one, just in case if she ran out of her dust. Melody then followed the other students to Beacon Cliff, gulps nervously as she's nervous about this.

Once they were all gathered on Beacon Cliff, they were instructed to stand on what appeared to be stone plates. Ozpin and Glynda stood before them and Ozpin began to speak. "For years you have trained to become warriors. And today, your abilities will be evaluated in the Emerald Forest." Glynda then spoke up and said "Now, I'm sure many of you have heard rumors about the assignment of teams. Well, allow us to put an end to your confusion. Each of you will be given teammates... Today."

"I thought so..." Lucas muttered to himself, as Ozpin continued. "These teammates will be with your for the rest of your time here at Beacon. So it is in your best interest to be paired with someone with whom you work well. That being said, the first person you make eye contact with after landing will be your partner for the next 4 years." Lucas's ears perked up at that. "Wait, after landing?" Ozpin continued with "After you've partnered up, make your way to the northern end of the forest. You will meet opposition along the way. Do not hesitate to destroy everything in your path, or you will die. You will be monitored and graded for the duration of your initiation. But our instructors will not intervene."

Lucas nodded at this, thinking It makes perfect sense. They want us to test ourselves, so if we die here it just shoes we weren't ready to be Huntsman and Huntresses, so of course they wouldn't help. Continuing to look them over, Ozpin said "You will find an abandoned temple at the end of this path containing several relics. Each pair must choose 1, and return to the top of the cliff. We will regard that item, as well as your standing, and grade you appropriately. Are there any questions?"

Raevus frowned. A permanent teammate for four years? That was unbelievably stupid. Getting to know someone by a glance wasn't the right way to go about it — what if he'd gotten paired up with someone who he butted heads with all the time? Raevus had no qualms getting to know people, but this...

He kept his mouth shut though. Right now he'd focus on the task at hand. Letting out a sigh... He moved along with the motions.

Onyx could already hear himself fidgeting over the explanation. They would be graded by their performance. Whoever they make eye contact with first will be their partner for the rest of the year. The professors won't intervene. Well, this should be fun! He glanced over around at the other students, his eyes landing on Lucas a few platforms away. He gave him a smile and thumbs up before looking back at the professors. Questions, questions...nope. He didn't have one. Wait. There was one. "I have a question." Onyx said as he raised his hand. "What did you mean by after landing?"

Ozpin looked at Onyx as the sound of a catapulault went off and one of the students was launched through the air. "You will be falling." Ozpin said, as another student was launched. "And you will need to devise your own landing strategy." With that, another student was launched. "That's what I was afraid of." Lucas muttered to himself

"In the next four years?" Melody doesn't like that idea. What if she teamed up with someone who is a cocky jerk? She'll have to deal with all the bullying, yelling and... Getting hurt. However, maybe there's some hope that she might teamed up with a nice person. Maybe someone like Raevus. She sighed as she have to wait to find out. She then heard Onyx's question, a very good question. She gulps. "What do you mean?" She asked. After that, she laughed nervously. "fa-fa-falling?"
