Characters in this group event, consisting of eight legs of mental struggle and combat readiness:

Fumei
Ace
Kai
Argent
Ryuuji
Jade
Celeste
Li

Looking out either window, any of the passengers will be able to spot the so called Vale Arena after a relatively short trip, though "Arena" was a bit of a misnomer, based on the appearance of the place. It was a massive oval-shaped building, to be sure, but it was empty on the inside. At a glance, or even finer inspection, you would be rather unsure how you would be challenged here at all. After staring for a few seconds, a voice comes over the intercom of the ship. "Attention passengers. We will be arriving at the landing platform momentarily. When you step off the airship, please wait a few moments for the Arena representative to greet you and direct you to the starting point. Be careful, and please enjoy your stay here at the Vale Arena."

True to the word of the voice on the intercom, you touchdown on the platform only seconds after the message had ended. The doors of the airship stay closed for a moment though, perhaps unexpectedly.

Argent stares down at the arena, his arms folded across his chest and a smirk on his face. This looks interesting. He thought to himself, watching the structure grow bigger and bigger as the ship drew closer to the ground. He had joined the event simply on a whim, the prospect of a challenge interesting enough to warrant the effort. As he felt the ship shudder, signaling landing that was announced only moments ago, he stretches, cracking his knuckles methodically. "Lets see how this goes." He said, bending his neck to the side, a satisfying series of cracks coming loud and clear.

He looks out the window at the arena growing ever closer, and hesitation flickers through his mind briefly. 'Everyone's going to hear my name.' A moment later, he reaffirms his decision, thinking, 'Maybe this will finally help make the Cadmus name respectable in society again.'

After a brief announcement, the airship lands with some brief shuddering, and he turns to face the door, expecting it to open. To his mild surprise, it remains closed. He sets his features in a stoic expression, the only thing that could detract from the look being his feminine appearance. 'I wonder why we're being kept here.'

Honestly, Kai was starting to get bored with riding on airships everywhere, that is there was nothing to do, even when it was a short ride. He had been called to the Vale Arena for some sort of competition, and there was very little to do except watch the landscape pass by below the ship. There were a total of eight combatants on board, including himself, and there was only one who he recognized. Across the ship from him there was Ryuuji, another student whom he fought in class before, but aside from that everyone else seemed to be a stranger to him.

As he sat near the window, polishing Dustbreaker for lack of anything else to do, the intercom of the ship crackled to life, making an announcement that they would be arriving at the arena shortly. "Finally" he thought. He stood up as he felt the ship starting to descent, and peered out the window at the only building that could be the arena. It was a massive structure to say the least, but aside from that, there wasn't anything that looked particularly impressive about it. With that in mind, Kai collapsed Dustbreaker into its storage form, and latched it on to the leather strap that hung over his shoulder.

It was only a few moments later that the ship arrived at the platform and docked, ready to let its passengers off, and Kai was up and at the front door as quickly as possible, even though the doors were still closed. This competition was to be satisfying, hopefully, and if he understood right, there would be teams, and teams would mean he would get to know people, hopefully those girls that were on board. In any case, he was ready to depart and ready to bring his skills into the fray.

Lee had no intentions of flying. A simple trip over the ground would have (in his mind), been just as easy. He had no fear of airships, but the lack of soil below made him feel quite "elevated". A letter in the mail, requesting his admittance to the Arena, had arrived in his hand only a few hours ago. The voyage by air was, as mentioned, quite unappealing in his mind. None of the faces around him seemed any bit familiar. "I could've seen any one of them around town, I should at least know one of them..."  The announcement before landing rather bothered him; the voice almost seemed of the creepy automated type, letting the "be careful" echo in his mind. All of his subconscious thoughts were quickly ended upon the rough touchdown of the vessel. Now he just stood there, waiting. The anticipation of greeting the representative though was one thing he had looked forward to during the journey. Waiting for the door to open, he let the cold metal of Kazoku slip down into both his hands; it was the only comfort he could feel for now.

Children... What do they know about self-sacrifice, or leading a team? In one massive airship, the group had been flying for quite some time now. They had been slowly making their way to some arena; the reason being was rather foggy, and it appeared that no one in the group actually knew what they would be doing here. Though, if Ace didn't know what was happening, it would be rather shocking, and irritating, for him to find out that someone else did. After all, he was an ex-graduate of Beacon, AND a genius. He should know everything. Or at least, he believes he should. Regardless, Ace came here to kill something, and make a point to the current students that he was a far deadlier force than they thought.

When they boarded the airship, Ace examined his surroundings, taking in not only the airship itself, but the other passengers whom he would soon be forced to call his teammates. Teammates... that was a word that he hadn't heard in a long time. As he sat quietly in the interior of the vessel, a small tear came from his right eye. Beth... Della... I'm sorry... Now was not the time for nostalgia though. Ace needed to focus on examining the 7 other 'players' and evaluating them.

Four males and three females. First, he counted genders in his head, which he had to redo on the count of a rather feminine looking male, which changed the numbers to five males and two females. He then began his evaluation of his team with an individual he'd already met. While Ace didn't know his name, Ryuuji was very easy to remember. There's that street urchin from the dust shop, who uses a katana. Then there's that quiet kid with no visible weapon, and that snake.... Argent made Ace awfully suspicious, but further investigation would have to wait. Next we have a rather girly fellow with the gentleman's blade, and lastly... Ace's eyes were set upon a white haired man by the name of Kai. It's almost uncanny... The silver hair and the war hammer... Almost like a mirror, though he's hiding behind armor. I suppose he's more like a past version of myself... How promising...

Finally, Ace began observing the female members of the team. They always were tougher to guess at. Girls hid themselves better than the opposing sex, and that could sometimes make them more challenging opponents. The green-haired lass appears to be wielding only a pair of small blades. Not much you can fit in to the customizations there... She might be dead weight. You on the other hand... Ace stared intently at Celeste Adelaide for quite some time. In fact, by the time he was done, they'd arrived at their destination. While everyone else seemed to fidget or jump out of their seats, Ace remained in his calm, quiet, meditative state of being. He furthered his thoughts on the girl. Something about you, I like... You're not like most of the mice running around that damned academy... I look forward to seeing you fight in this arena today...

Ace Toromaki's shaggy, white hair shrouded the left side of his face in a thread of mysteries. Soft yet durable cloth covered the entirety of his torso and arms, masking his upper body as well. Even his hands were hiding in white gloves, marked by a blackened wolf head and crescent moon; the symbol seemed as though it had been burned in to the light, pure fabric with the use of a branding iron. In fact, to some point, it almost felt as though the symbol was emblazoned the flesh beneath those very gloves, scarring the curious beast. His pants, accompanied by a belt, were met at the ankle by what appeared to be dress shoes. However, upon further inspection they would prove to be a pair of black, high quality sport shoes, capable of undergoing any terrain, save perhaps lava, that tested them. While perhaps a bit upper class, Ace's general appearance was rather normal, if not a tad secluded, but the never-fading aura that engulfed his body gave off a malevolent, uncanny feel. Standing next to him would almost feel similar in comparison to standing next a creature of grim, or even death himself.

Should the doors finally unlock at this point, Ace would find himself standing at them and following the rest of the group to wherever they might be headed. Only should another member attempt to converse with him, would he break his stoic silence.

Celeste remained sitting the entire trip, one may have also mistaken her to not be a fighter if not for the large battle-ax she was carrying around. As they landed Celeste woke up from her little nap and felt a bit odd at first for joining something as dangerous as this on a whim. She stood up and picked up her ax, slightly staring at the intricate pattern on it's blades before finally putting it back on her back. Since the doors had yet to open Celeste decided to admire the scenery a bit before heading out but looking at the large oval building didn't do much to impress her.

Seriously, they could have done much more to aesthetically improve the place at least.

A bit displeased by what she saw, Celeste headed for the door without paying heed to any of the others. She spaced out again, thinking about what she may have to face and how she should fight. A multitude of thoughts ran through her head as she thought it through and she ended up almost walking into someone but stopped a step shy of where they were standing. Still lost in though, Celeste stared at the doors, ready to face whatever may be behind them.

Jade stood quietly in a corner of the airship, staring through the window, then at a particularly uninteresting part of the floor. She regretted signing up for this. There were people she knew here, and the idea of the challenge was one she enjoyed, but she was quite uncomfortable with the thought of having to fight alongside some of the people in her group.

While it had once been a view worth admiring, Jade's many travels by airship had left the impressive kingdom of Vale as little more than background noise in her view. She fidgeted uncomfortably, constantly taking her weapons an inch from their sheath, only to instantly put them back.

There was something eerie about the arena. As a centre of entertainment, you'd expect it to flaunt its many features and mysteries, to express stature and to attract attention wherever possible. Yet this grey, boring block of concrete would tell her little more than the name itself. She barely responded when the airship landed, and remained at the other side of the ship opposite the door, waiting for others to leave.

In one of the center seats of the airship, a dark haired boy sat sleeping peacefully for most of the ride. At the moment however, he merely had his eyes shut and pretended to rest. Ryuuji had heard of an interesting opportunity in the city and had agreed to go along with it to hopefully get used to his new surroundings. However, when he woke up from his nap the first time, he noticed a familiar face in his supposed team for whatever event they may face.

'Well... This is an interesting predicament,' Ryuuji thought to himself with closed eyes. 'Should I try to apprehend him?' he wondered. 'I might be able to, now that I know his abilities a bit better.. but... he could try to turn things around again on me...' he began to sweat a tad from his own thoughts. 'And anyway...'

Ryuuji peaked an eye open to look at the rest of his team, completely made of strangers. He was nervous at the thought of having to work with them. 'What if I mess up something?' he pessimistically thought. In a way, he was more scared of working together with them than the possibility of fighting Ace. 'Well, I'm sure everything will be fine. Probably...' As the airship slowed to a halt, Ryuuji 'woke' from his nap and stood to stretch. He deciding to pretend not to recognize Ace for now unless it was necessary.

A minute or two after landing, a quick beep echos through the airship before a message plays over the intercom. "Attention. We're having some technical errors with the automatic door mechanism. One of you can flip the lever above the actual door to have it open, and we'll get the issues sorted out before your flight back to the city. Have a nice day." Sure enough, a quick glance above the set door out of the airship will reveal a lever.

Lee frowned. Seriously?Technical errors? Jeez, I hope the staff isn't as faulty as their transports. He made his way over to the lever, and placed a hand on it. Looking back at everybody, he threw on his hood and as he pulled the lever. Turning back again, he faced away from the group as he said with a solid yet neutral tone:

"You guys ready?"

Celeste merely nodded as Lee pulled the lever. Though not completely sure about what's going to happen she decides to go through with it since it would be the best thing to do. Backing out for her wasn't an option. She kept a firm grip on Jabberwocky for a reason, she felt that even if they're just getting past a door there might be something waiting right behind it.

Perhaps I'm just a bit paranoid.

Huh. So, the ship wasn't as prepared as had been implied...though at least they did have a manual opening system for the doors. Thought it made sense if safety precautions were anything to keep in mind. They were all gathered around the exit now, with one in particular, a tall-ish guy, in the front and pulling the lever which apparently opened the door. Kai stood near the back of the group, counting everyone there again. Only now did he notice that there was a man, several years older than him, who seemed familiar...though maybe it was just the hammer he carried. Though it mattered little to him, as he didn't pay much attention to guys he was unfamiliar with, those girls though...that was another story.

However, before he could talk to either the black haired girl or the green haired girl, the guy who had opened the door addressed the group, asking if everyone was ready. Well, that was the question wasn't it? Were they ready? The group hadn't even formally met yet, they were simply brought together, and while he was sure of his own abilities, what of the others? Could they fight well enough in the arena? It really was a concern of his, just as the protection of civilians concerned him. But, they had to be there for a reason didn't they. Keeping his position at the back of the group, Kai slipped on his headphones and put on a familiar rock song. 'This'll be the day' he thought as he bobbed his head to the beat. He was ready for whatever this arena had to throw at them.

As the door opens, Lí ponders the question that had just been asked. 'I would certainly like to say I am. Much as we try to be, can we ever truly be ready for the unknown?' he thinks, still honest even within his own mind.

With a determined nod, he faces the door, ready to depart and face what challenges may come.

Ryuuji watched as several of the others just nodded in unison. 'Everyone seems a tad on edge,' he began to wonder what kind of mess he had gotten himself into. In response to the question, he turned to the man at the lever and shrugged with a partially confused look on his face. "How bad could it be?" he muttered to himself as he smirked. His hand wandered to his sword for a small amount of security, but he didn't bother drawing it, not wanting to look silly if nothing happened.

OOC: We never really established a posting order, but since we're in this large of a group, AND this is probably going to be a relatively coordinated thread, shouldn't we at least wait for everyone to post once before posting again?

Upon reaching the realization that the faulty doors could be a trap, Ace quickly reached for one of his weapons. Small space, likely a close proximity to the enemy at all times. Key advantage: mobility. Ace reached for Anarchy, unclipping it from the holster that it shared with it's brother, Chaos, and brought it before him in a readied position. He knew that Ryuuji might immediately consider this an act of aggression, so he brought his sacred stare upon the boy, expressing a concerned look in order to clarify that he was only ensuring their safety. This "arena" already proved itself to be suspicious on account of the faulty door; Ace wasn't going to be taking any chances.

"Thanks." Argent said to Lee, giving a quick, noncommittal salute as he walked by him into the open air. Standing outside, he stretches for a second before crossing his arms across his chest, looking around the empty tarmac, wind blowing at him. Running a hand through his hair, he folds his arms again before asking no one in particular. "So what now?"

Moments after everyone had vacated the airship, a woman came running out of a nearby door, a slightly frazzled look about her. "Sorry about the wait! Uhm, right, I'm Kaylee, I run the events and stuff here. So anyway... I can answer any questions you guys have about the arena, or you can just follow me to the first challenge! Or... yeah, no, that's about it!"

As everyone filed out, Kai took notice of a woman, running quickly towards them, and immediately shifted his attention to her, stopping as she stopped in front of the group. She addressed everyone, informing them of her identity and what they were about to do. Though, she was vague about what exactly the 'first challenge' was.

Kai simply looked on, nodding when appropriate, and tapping his foot in impatience. Really, he wanted to get on with the challenges. He was itching for a fight, be it a mental one or a physical one. There really was little to do so long as they were only hanging out outside the arena. "Well Kaylee, let's get going then." he muttered under his breath.

Celeste barely notices the rest of them and walks outside following Kaylee. "I agree. I've had enough waiting for one day. Pleasure to meet you Kaylee, now if you could just lead us to the arena." She walks ahead of the others and loosens her grip on the ax on her back, letting it rest back. She curtsies to the rest of the group without a second thought and says,"Pleasure to meet you all. Please do your best, we are a group after all even if it's just for now." Turning her back to the others she heads away from the ship.
