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.
