Jacob sat on one of Vale's numerous benches, arms folded across his chest, eyes closed as he took a few moments for himself, free from the stress of his team. It was a sunny day at least, offering up a plethora of locations he could find solitude in, provided of course he could blot out all the dirty looks and passing jibes. His pointed wolf ears were flat against his head, folded forwards due to his state of unusual calmness. Hopefully he wouldn't have to hospitalize anyone today... provided of course they could outrun him.

A chorus of annoyed grunts and offensive jibes could be heard coming from a little while down the street from where Jacob sat, where a group of humans were verbally poking at a seething faunus girl. She'd been having a hard time navigating through a crowd, and due to the large wings on her back, she'd bumped into several people. It seemed that no matter how tightly they were pressed to her body, she couldn't make herself small enough to slide through groups without bumping someone.
Alicia fought not to scowl and tried to ignore the insults from one particular clique whom she'd bumped into, and very nearly failed to. Not worth it, she chanted inwardly, They're idiots who aren't worth my energy, don't give in...
Squeezing her eyes shut for a moment, she made her way out of the crowd and to the nearest bench. Luckily the thing didn't have a back to it, so she could fit her wings and tail feathers comfortably behind her. Leaning her face into her fingerless-gloved hands, she took a few deep breaths and shook her head, somehow convincing herself not to get back up and teach those ignorant humans some manners. Instead, she turned slightly and smoothed down a few upset feathers, oblivious to the guy next to her.

Jacob opened one of his eyes, inspecting the scene as it unfolded, the wolf ear on the same side pricking to pick up what was being said. The girl in question, a avian Faunas by the looks of things managed to get clear of the crowd and sat down on the bench beside him, her face buried in her hands. A few of the boys from the particular group followed her, still hurling insults. One of them, clearly the ringleader stopped a few feet away
"What's the matter freak, you gonna cry?" he jeered. Jacob Sighed, climbing to his feet and squaring up to the boy
"Leave her alone" he growled
"Or what?" the boy sneered. Without so much as batting an eyelid, Jacob caught the guy with a right hook, breaking his nose and sending him sprawling on the ground.

Alicia looked up from her feathers to the boy with a stare that could wilt flowers. She had set her jaw, and was about to stand when the guy sitting next to her got up. She watched the pair's brief interaction coldly, until the guy who had apparently come to her aid sent the boy sprawling. At that, Alicia bit back a laugh, coming out as more of a snort than anything.
The boy, nose bleeding, scrambled to his feet and backed away, holding his face. "Crazy animals!" He cried, picking up the pace, "You don't belong around people!"
His last few words were lost in the crowd as he ran for it.
Alicia, who's amusement had turned back into a scowl, clenched her fists and teeth, but said nothing. After a second, she turned and looked at the guy who'd defended her, and nodded to him. "Thanks, but I probably could have handled him myself." With a slight smirk, she held up a hand. The fingerless glove upon it had kevlar reinforcements on the knuckles, made for punching.

Jacob shrugged
"That only raises the question 'why didn't you?'" the wolf resumed his seat, angling himself slightly to make conversation easier, should it arise.

Alicia sighed. "Didn't want to waste energy on a futile cause." Shrugging, she explained, "Nothing I do to them is going to make them change their minds. Just like that one, if I were to attack them, their idea that I'm a savage wild animal would only be reinforced."
She realized that her explanation was a tad hypocritical, as it was that exact tactic the White Fang used, but sometimes she had a hard time relating their values to her own life, and some days, she just didn't want to deal with it.

"Well, I'm not going to sit around and take it. Mostly because I am a savage wild animal" he chuckled to himself, before offering the girl a hand "Jacob Reaver, of Clan Reaver" he smiled. Having grown up on the ice fields Jacob wasn't lying, not only was he for the most part wild, but his lack of social knowledge made him direct and blunt in his approach to people, for the most part at least.

Alicia took his hand and shook it, just now noticing the wolf ears on his head. "Alicia Ryan, huntress in training." Smiling faintly, she said, "I have my moments, definitely. But sometimes I just want to get through the city without pulling Hiljainen on someone." She gestured to the neutralized spear-bow attached to the back of her belt, mostly covered by her wings.

Jacob smirked
"Well, you're going to have your work cut out, my first day here, I knocked out two kids and froze a third." He sighed "very different to what I was used to" he grunted. He reached up and shifted the strap holding Jernulv in place so that he could lean further back in the seat.

Alicia huffed, averting her attention to her ruffled feathers once again. She had to be careful not to get too into it however, as she was prone to accidentally spending hours preening, and losing track of time in the process. "I certainly hope Beacon isn't like this..." she mumbled, then chuckled, "If it is, then I'll be getting a lot more practice, if you know what I mean." She smirked.
Just then, a large monitor mounted on the building across the street switched from ads to a news report. The reporter stated that the White Fang had allegedly sabotaged a Schnee Dust freighter ship on its way from Vale to Menagerie. It wasn't news to Alicia, in fact, she was surprised that it wasn't reported sooner. She'd been on the mission a few weeks ago.

Jacob's fists clenched, but he tried to breeze over the statement the news report had made, calming the ire that built up as soon as the White Fang were mentioned.
"Beacon's not like this at all, there's a decent mix of Faunas and Humans and we all get along ok. I wouldn't worry too much" he said, trying a comforting smile, but instead forming what looked more like a snarl. One of these days he was going to master 'friendly'.

Alicia caught Jacob's tightening in the corner of her eye. "What is it?" she asked, narrowly fitting in the question before he answered hers. "Oh, well, good." she said confidently. Of course it was a faunus-friendly place, her family and the White Fang wouldn't have urged her to go otherwise.

"Nothing" Jacob grunted dismissively. "Just... nothing" he repeated, trying to banish the images of red snow from his mind. Images that had flashed up as a result of the report and the shots of devastation and damage caused by the Faunas in white.

Alicia scoffed. "You're a terrible liar," she remarked. A quiet beep sounded, and she pulled her scroll out of the pocket of her navy blue hoodie, absent-mindedly scrolling through a new message from her White Fang squad leader. She was to keep record of establishments that refused service to faunas, especially any related to the Schnee company. Rolling her eyes, she replaced the scroll into her pocket.

((the scrolls are like the all-purpose technology, right? I see them used as phones and tablets in the show))

"Comes with the territory" Jacob grunted "growing up alone tends to have that effect on people." The wolf shoved his hands deep into his pockets, staring at the screen still showing a few final images from the report on the White Fang. He gritted his teeth, he reached down and subtly clenched a fist around his White Fang trophy belt, a scratched and defaced White Fang faceplate, he'd taken it after a transport he was using had been shot down, he and Hira had managed to get clear of the wreckage, but then the White Fang had tried to kill them and finish the job, all because they'd passed one of the old mines beyond Vale.

Alicia's eyes followed Jacob's hands to where they rested on a belt, holding... the White Fang sigil?
Not normally a nosy one, Alicia couldn't help but ask, "What are you, a member?" She could have sworn she'd recognize him if he were, but the again, it was a large organization and she was only really familiar with her sector.

Jacob tensed, he slowly turned to face Alicia
"No" he snarled "I'm not a member. I hate the White Fang" he growled through a barricade of teeth "They took away everything I had and left me for dead. They've attacked my friends and anyone I get close to. Those bastards have been hunting me down since I was nine! For little more than my name, and the fact that my clan wanted nothing to do with their hatred!" Jacob forced back the tears before turning away "I hate them" he spat.

"Hey, you watch your damn mouth!" Alicia snarled, feathers fluffing up for a moment before smoothing down again, "Their methods may be extreme but the White Fang it the only thing standing for the Faunus when everything else is trying to flatten us!"
Still, her eyes widened slightly at Jacob's description of what the White Fang had supposedly done.

Jacob's pupils shrank and he glared hard at Alicia. He'd been on the verge of apologizing for the emotive outburst. But now all that was left was rage.
"Standing for Faunas?" He growled "they'll happily kill their own! Don't fall for their propaganda, they're not fighting for anything!" His breathing had increased in pace and his fists were clenched so tightly his knuckles had turned white "you talk about the Faunas stereotype, they're the ones setting it, giving the rest of us a bad name!"

Alicia's feathers fluffed again, wings spreading a little. She Latin one hand on Hiljainen where it was attached to her belt, but didn't do anything rash.
"They wouldn't kill a faunus, not unle-"
Alicia paused, face going thoughtful. She recalled back to when their new leader first came into power. His ideals had been harsh and extreme at first, but it had quickly became apparent that there was no other way. He'd taken more drastic measures than he did now, bigger changes having been necessary.
She glared at Jacob. "Our methods may be extreme, but it became apparent a long time ago that the peaceful route wasn't going to change anything." She gestured to a man who'd walked by, giving them a dirty look. "People will never listen if they think they have the upper hand, so the White Fang had to take more drastic measures. Didn't you notice that faunas only started being treated as equals after the White Fang intervened?!"

Jacob's pupils shrank back into pinpricks.
"You're one of them" he snarled. He was on his feet in a split second, a look of sheer contempt on his face "we're not equals with the humans, they hate us even more!" He drew Jernulv, gripping the axe in both hands "Come on then, finish what you started!" he growled.

Alicia's expression deepened to a snarl, and her hair rose slightly as the feathers there puffed up. She stood, distancing herself from the growling wolf faunus, her stance low and her wings slightly extended to either side. She kept her hand on Hiljainen's neutral form, but didn't draw the weapon. "I've done nothing to you," she said, voice low and even. Her eyes were hard as they bored into Jacob's.
"But if it's a fight you want, then don't strike here where innocent people can get hurt."

"I'm sure it's only a matter of time" he snarled, slowly beginning to circle the girl, wishing that he'd left well enough alone, being friendly had thoroughly bitten him in the arse, and he'd tried to befriend a White Fang. He took a fighting stance "I didn't think you'd care about innocents, being part of the Fang."

"I don't think you understand," Alicia said slowly, calmly, in hopes of diffusing the situation. Her stance got lower, and her wings went out more, angling slightly upside-down so the more patterned outer sides showed, a defensive stance meant to make the real raptor look bigger. "Everything I know, everything I am I owe to the White Fang! I'd be nothing a=without them! Hell, I'd probably be dead!"
She held the grip of Hiljainen, ready to draw, but did not. If there was going to be a fight here, she did not want to be the one to strike first. However, she would do whatever she had to in order to survive, and hoped that her possible opponent understood that.

"Everything I am I owe to the White Fang. A Lone wolf, an outcast, hated and feared" Jacob snarled "for centuries my clan protected the North, doing more for Faunas kind than the White Fang ever did. Yet they were killed in cold blood because they didn't want anything to do with their hate fueled campaign" Jacob's grip tightened on Jernulv as his pulse quickened, this was the angriest he'd been in a long time. Then a cold realization struck him "How long have you been in Vale?" he demanded.
