Raevus was up next for the launch. One of the students, some sort of deer Faunus, was taken aback by the fact that the students were being launched. Raevus chuckled a little; he'd done this kind of thing, and much more back at home. Looking around at the other students, he spotted Melody and waved across the cliff to her. Nervous.... he noted. wonder if she can handle what's at this school. Taking his stand, Raevus waited until launch.

Raevus was launched next as Ozpin said "Yes, you will be falling, as you can see, your fellow students are being launched into the forest, you must find a way to safely land. Good luck." With that, Lucas was the next to be launched.

Onyx watched in amusement as students were literally launched over into the sky and straight to the forest. Onyx smiled, nodding in understanding. "I see where this stands, then." Onyx said with a chuckle. A way to land? He was sure to find one. "Alright!" Onyx yelled, throwing his arms into the air. "This is going to be funner than I expected!" Onyx laughed. He turned to Lucas. "Hey, Lucas! Let's hope we meet at the forest when we land. If not, good luck!~" Onyx said, waving at his friend. He watched Lucas being launched. He watched more students being launched until it got to him, launching him straight into the air as Onyx cheered. "Whoo hoo!!!" Onyx yelled, flying across the air with a smile on his face, laughing brightly. "This is AWESOME!" He squealed. He watched as he soon was beginning to fall back down. He activated his semblance, in tune with his weapons, aura forming around his arms. As he fell he reached out, expanding his aura as it wrapped itself around a branch like a whip, allowing Onyx to swing from it straight to another tree. Instantly he changed the shape of the aura, from its whip into the shape of large claws. He extended his arms, clawing into the tree with force before smoothly spinning down the tree, leaving his claw marks behind, until he reached the floor safe and sound. "Whoo hoo!" Onyx squealed, jumping up and down. "That. Was. AWESOME." He giggled. He looked around. "Right. The ruins are north." Onyx hummed, pressing on the screen of his gauntlet, which showed him a compass. "I should find someone by the time I get there." He figured, beginning to make his way as he watched the sky for flying students.

"o-oh okay..." She gulps. Melody then saw Raevus waving at her, she waved back and smiles at him until he was launched. Melody tried to be brave as she gets ready to launch. "Okay, here goes nothing!" She said as she putting her blue glasses on.

Melody was the last to get launched into the air. Meanwhile, Lucas had pulled out his sniper rifle and looked through the scope, trying to find a clearing in the forest. He spotted a spot, as well as an Ursa. Lucas loaded his rifle with ice rounds and fired two at the Ursa's legs, freezing them to the ground. He then aimed at the ground behind the Ursa and focused on it, appearing in that spot in an instant, spinning around and turning his rifle back into the katana and sheath. He gave the Ursa several slashes on it's back, before slicing it's head off, causing it to dissolve into nothing, as he sheathed his katana. He exhaled and looked around, seeing if there was anyone else around. The first person he would see would be his partner for the next four years.

The exhilaration from the launch was extreme, but Raevus had been seasoned to land. Focusing his body, it was almost as if he were as light as a feather, yet slicing through the wind like a blade. When he came down, he landed atop a tree, which he punctured his knife and scaled downward into. Overgrown shrubs and weeds as well as trees taller than houses filled the area surrounding Raevus.

Natural.

Quiet.

Tranquil.

Raevus stood in silence, discerning the path towards the ruins. Retrieving the piece seems so easy... The hard part was the rest of Ozpin's warnings. Climbing back up on the tree branches, Raecus tried to make his way towards the ruins.

As she's launched into the sky, Melody started screaming. "ohh, no, no, no no!!!!" She tried to think of something to land safely, then she thought of something, her pistols. Melody gets her pistols and try to get it change into a scythe, but it didn't end well for her. Her hands' slips as the pistols fell down on the ground, leaving her panicking. "oh no, this is bad! Bad! Landing! STRATEGY!!!!" She yelled as she's falling to the ground.

Lucas saw the guns hit the ground after the Ursa fell and looked up to see Melody fly by. "That's not good!" he said to himself, drawing his katana and throwing it like a javellin. It just managed to hook onto her outfit, and pin her to a nearby tree, much better than the messy landing she would have had. He jogged after her to help her down and get his katana back, picking her guns up along the way. "You alright?" he asked once he reached her.

(This was ok with Yessie, we discussed it beforehand)

Melody had her eyes closed as she about to hit the ground. Then, something was grabbing her hoodie as she opened her eyes and realized that it's a katana stabbing her hoodie against a tree, meaning someone had saved her life. She Sighs in relief, later Melody heard someone, asking if she's alright. "I'm ok. Thank you so much for your help and nice throw by the way." She said. She look at the boy and realized he's a faunus, a cat faunus in fact.

"Glad to hear you're ok." he said, pulling his katana out and helping her down. "My name's Lucas, and I guess this means we're partners. Oh! And I believe these are yours." He pulled out her guns and handed them to her.

Raevus bounded through the trees, still no one or nothing in sight. That was, until he heard a screech from above — Melody's voice — and she was in lieu to a crash landing!

Raevus yelled "Melody!" temporarily giving up his objective and leaping towards her. He fretted about her condition, and his head drew all sorts of negative scenarios.

"Ra..."

As Raevus leapt through the trees, an earth-shaking tremor rocked the landscape, causing him to slip and lose his balance. Pain shot through his elbow once he landed, like a coursing needle.

"...The Grimm are born from fear."

Raevus clenched his fist, and tried to rebound from the shock. But the tremor grew. Closer and closer...

"The closer you get to the light..."

Raevus witnessed the ground explode, and from it, a King Taijitu Grimm monster began to emerge. Raevus ran from it, in a fleeting decision. This test that Director Ozpin gave... What kind of insane thing was this?

"...The greater your shadow becomes."

Raevus ran towards the summit of a mountain in the forests' clearing, turning back to see the Grimm erect, as large as Beacon's tower. A sweat bead trickled slowly down his temple. Clenching his teeth, he clung to a thought. His grandmother's words.

"But don't be afraid."

Raevus drew his sword from his back, flipping it as he often saw his father do. He held it straight to his forearm, with the strength and focused look of his mother. Raevus' heart pounded, thudding immensely, but he'd no longer look back. This was his first test, the test to prove himself to his family, and to the school. Blood rushed, pumping through his veins.

The blood of a Krysse.

"You ready?" Raevus shouted to the beast. "Well come on!" The Grimm hissed in response, a trembling shriek, as both man and Grimm lunged towards each other.

Onyx heard screaming as students fell. Some managed to stick their landed. Other screams were cut uncomfortably short. He hoped that he didn't encounter a hunter pancake anytime soon. "Right. The ruins shouldn't be that far. I mean, how long can this forest run? Have they had students not return or get lost? Man, I should've asked before being launched across the air." Onyx hummed. He heard the shifting of leaves, gasping as he got into stance. However, it wasn't a grim...it was a student. Traveling from branch to branch, heading the same direction towards the ruins. "Hey!" Onyx called, running after them in hopes of catching up. "Hey! Wait up! You're the first person I've met since landing! Which means we should be partners! Wait for me!" Onyx called, running as fast as he could. However, just as he thought he could catch up, he heard the rustling of bushes. He paused, looking around. "Um...hello?" Onyx asked, looking around. Soon, growling followed. Beowolves. They stepped out of the shadows of the forests, suddenly surrounding Onyx. Crap, had he stepped into their nesting ground? "Oh dear." Onyx hummed, looking around. "It seems I've walked straight into your house, right? Now now, we don't have to settle this violently! How about I leave and we can forget this ever happened?" Onyx suggested playfully. Suddenly a Beowolf charged from behind. It jumped into the air, aiming to tackle Onyx down. Onyx smirked. Suddenly, he extended his arm, his aura surging before transforming itself into a large weapon. Before the Beowolf could've done anything, a large blade slashed it across in midair, slashing it in half. The Beowolf body pieces fell, each on both sides of Onyx as they began to slowly disappear into nothing. The other Beowolves growled loudly, agitated. Onyx spun his newly formed scythe, pointing it at one of the Beowolves. "I did offer an alternative." Onyx hummed, his smile never wavering. The Beowolves howled, charging straight at him, all at once. Onyx ran up to one of the Beowolves, slamming his scythe right on it's head, pushing himself with the scythe to jump over the Beowolf. He spun his body, forcing himself to land behind it, pulling the scythe and Beowolf with him, before swinging the scythe, sending the body flying off the scythe and into the path of upcoming Beowolves, knocking them down. He spun his scythe upwards from where he stood, not a second after, slashing a Beowolf upwards into the sky. He proceeded to morph his scythe, losing it's stiff qualities and blade to transform it into a whip, wrapping itself around the Beowolf. He pulled on it, slamming the Beowolf against the ground, before swinging it around himself, sending the Beowolf flying as he used its body as collateral, smacking against the other Beowolves. He brought it back, slamming it into the ground with enough force for it to bounce against it. Instantly, he morphed it again, changing it's shape into a large war hammer, which he proceeded to use to swing into the Beowolf, sending it flying across the air. "Homerun!" He yelled. Soon more Beowolf were on him. He back flipped, landing on one's back, and jumping off it just as another Beowolf went after him, causing it to tackle the other Beowolf instead. Onyx landed against the tree, using it to push himself up into the air. As he was there, in an instant he was morphing his war hammer into the shape of two dual blades. "Activate: Fire Dust!" Onyx called. The weapon responded, suddenly the blades themselves changing to a bright orange color, emitting heat as they became fire itself. As Onyx fell back to the ground, he spun, pointing his swords down, fire surrounding him. By time he reached the ground, he was a fire twister, slamming into the ground with a large explosion, fire spreading and burning the area around him along with the Beowolves. From the fire, Onyx charged forward, unphased , slashing at the Grimm as they burned. He slashed, cutting their heads, limbs, bodies apart. Grimm turned into ashes, or whatever it was that they turned into after death. The grass and trees around him burned, but only shortly, before Onyx activated another dust. "Activate: Wind Dust!" Onyx called, his blades changing of color before spinning, sending gusts of air across the area, putting out the fire with ease. Once he was done, he had time to admire his...disaster zone. He had burnt the entire area to a crisp, patches of ash and dark all around. Trees were pushed back, off their roots and foundations from the force of the wind he had created. It was as if a meteor had landed in there. Sort of. "Whoops." Onyx said. At least the Grimm were dead. However, he wasn't done, as the sound of another fight caught his attention. "That could be the kid from earlier." He hummed. He sighed, cracking his neck as he proceeded to hurry in the direction, hoping he wasn't too late to help.

The Grimm took the first move, lunging towards Raevus with its fangs borne. Raevus dodged, slashing in wide circular arcs defensively. The Grimm seemed unaffected by the slashes and hissed at Raevus, striking again with blinding speed. Raevus was able to avoid its fangs, but it's body slammed him into a nearby tree.

Hoisting himself up, Raevus sucked his teeth. Looks like I'll have to use my Semblance... as the Grimm searched for him, Raevus drew his signs.

Fox Raevus placed his palm on the back of his bent fingers, laying two fingers on the knuckles and raising his index and pinky. Snake his hands seemed to glide into each other.

The Grimm's fangs were borne, as Raevus finished the last sign. Bird, Raevus placed the tips of his fingers together, and towards his chest touched each index's knuckles. He swiftly broke the sign and twirled his sword in a horizontal figure 8.

"Burn out..." Raevus grunted, as what seemed to be in an invisible flash, the Grimm was cut in a blinding fashion, thrashing about before collapsing.

Raevus sheathed the blade, running towards the direction of Melody, when another earth-shaking screech sounded behind him. He turned to see the Grimm had shed itself, and had bounded for him. Raevus blocked the King Taijitu's fangs, but the sword flung out of his hand, lying on the ground. Raevus took one more look at the Grimm.

"But don't be afraid..."

"Glad to hear you're ok." he said, pulling his katana out and helping her down. "My name's Lucas, and I guess this means we're partners. Oh! And I believe these are yours." He pulled out her guns
and handed them to her.


After he helped her down, she chuckled nervously. "Nice to meet you, Lucas. My name's Melody. I guess so and thank you." She said while she received her guns back. She laughed nervously as she puts them up. "Well, that went kinda well. Hopefully, I didn't make him worried sick about me."

"Not a problem." he said. "Now we just need to find those ruins and an artifact." When she mentioned someone being worried he asked "Who would that be?" as he looked around, making sure they didn't attract the attention of any Grimm.

Onyx followed the noise of battle, pushing his way through the overgrown brushes and past the trees, until reaching the clearing. There he reached just as the young hunter stroke down the snake Grimm. "Wow!" Onyx gasped in awe. He was able to take down that grand beast down all on his own. That was impressive. "Hey!" Onyx called, waving at Raevus as he hurried over to greet him. "That was awesome! I wish I could've arrived earlier to see the whole thing!" Onyx said with a cheerful tone. However, it seemed the show wasn't over, as the snake slowly rose from behind, causing Onyx to gasp in surprise. The hunter blocked with his blade, but was knocked out of his hands in the process. By this point Onyx was running, towards the hunter and the beast. "Activate: Lightning Dust!" Onyx called, his weapon reacting as his aura began to become surrounded by electricity. Just as the Grimm tried to eat him again, Onyx ran right up in front of Raevus, throwing his arms up as claws of aura formed around his arms. He caught a hold of the Grimm's jaw just as it came biting down, holding it open and keeping it from taking a bite out of the two of them, pushing right back. Onyx grunted as he pushed the Grimm back, struggling to keep it still. "H-Hey! Quick! Grab your sword and slash it's head right off! Snakes don't regrow limbs! We should be fine!"

Raevus scurried upward at the student's voice. Another Faunus. He just... Jumped right in the fight without thinking! If it weren't for him though, Raevus might not probably even be breathing.

Diving for his sword, he lunged towards the Grimm, cleaving its neck in two with a powerful force. A loud hiss reverberated through the air, and both the Grimm's head and body grew limp, dissipating into a black wisp of air that danced about the sky before disappearing. Raevus lended a hand to the Faunus, hoisting him up from the ground.

"Thanks for the help!" Raevus grinned. "You really got me out of a tight spot." With a moment of hesitation, and realizing the situation they were in, he added "Partner."

Onyx got his hands on his hips, the aura slowly disappearing as Raevus killed off the Grimm. "Cool." He hummed. He looked up at Raevus, chuckling as he bashfully smiled and rubbed the back of his head. "It was nothing! I wouldn't be a hunter if I didn't help." Onyx said, his eyes glistening as Raevus called him partner. "Oh, so I was right! I'm the first person you've met since landing! I saw you running across the branches. You're pretty fast." Onyx said as he walked over to Raevus, getting a bit closer. "I'm glad you came out of that alive." Onyx said, checking the screen on his gauntlet. "The ruins should be a short distance from here. So...how about we get to know each other while we get there?" Onyx said with a smile, beginning to walk. "My name's Onyx Pitch-Black. And these are Doppelganger. I come from Mistral. What about you?"

She nods to him. "Yeah. oh umm, you could said that he's a Friend of mine, even though we just met." She said. Melody took her glasses off, placing it on her hair. "anyways, let's hurry to the ruins." She then looks around to see if there's any Grimm around here.

Onyx. "Raevus Krysse. You can call me Rae if it suits you." Raevus thought for a second, then said "Another student looked like they had a crash landing. I think the ruins are nearby. Think she's okay?"
