Sterling nods to the other members of the group. " To victory." he says before exiting the locker room.

Sienna blinked. "To victory," she echoed after a moment, before following the others.

"To victory." Vance repeats.

"To victory." Thomas says, smiling all the way.

"Victory." Azula says with a smirk.

"To Glory." Tyson adds.

"To a happy future." Eliese adds, rather quietly.

The group followed the signs out of the armory and to the courtyard. From there, a path lead straight to the cliffside which overlooked the forest. Standing as still as statues, Professor Goodwitch and Headmaster Ozpin look over all of the students.

Goodwitch marks each of them on her oversized scroll as they took their positions on top of designated squares. Goodwitch barely gave any of them a long look, but Professor Ozpin made a point to smile and bow to each of the students.

But, he didn't really seem to care. There was no sparkle in his eyes, no sense of pride or appreciation. In fact, once everyone past, he didn't look at them again. However, when the group arrived, that changed.

His eyes lit up when he saw a girl in a red hood with a gun strapped to her hip. His gaze lingered on Vance after the boy flashed him a peace sign and a funny grin. It actually made him smile. Then the smile disappeared when he saw Thomas and Eliese. It returned when Azula took a position thankfully.

Sterling received an almost... is the a calculated stare? It was like he was trying to judge something. What, no one knew. Sienna received the biggest, brightest smile that Ozpin had given the entire first year. Nisha earned a nod, and an almost half solute with his cup. Tyson got a passing glance, but the second he turned his back, the head master watched him go to his station.

An interesting development to say the least.  

Once everyone is on their squares, Opzin clears his throat. “For years you have trained to become warriors, and today your abilities will be evaluated in the Emerald forest.”

“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.” Glynda explains “Each of you will be given teammates, today.”

Glynda’s announcement sends a ripple effect throughout the students. Some are happy, while others are frightened. Vance grins and Thomas jumps with excitements.

“These teammates will be with you for the rest of your time here at Beacon, so it is in your best interests to find someone with which you can work well.” Ozpin explains.

The number of worried expressions suddenly doubles.

“That being said, the first person you make eye contact with after landing will be your partner for the next four years.”

Vance blinks, and several people follow his example.

"Umm... I don't think that's how efficiency works."

Ozpin utterly ignores him.

“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."

"Ray of sunshine," Thomas whispers.

"Shut up." Azula grumbles.

"You will be monitored and graded for the duration of your initiation,” Ozpin takes a second to look over at everyone in the front row “But our instructors will not interfere, no matter how much they might want to. You will find an abandoned temple at the end of the path containing several relics. Each pair must chose one, and return to the top of the cliff. We will guard that item, as well as your standing, and grade you appropriately. Are there any questions?”

At the end of the row , a blonde boy nervously raises a hand “Yeah um sir-?”

“Good!” Ozpin says, completely ignoring the boy's plea “Now, take your positions.”

The students drop into different stances and brandish their weapons as they await the call to go. Vance shakes his head, but cracks his neck. Azula drops into a sprinter's stance, and Eliese just stands there, utterly unaffected. Thomas sends her a worried glance, but he says nothing.

At the other end of the row, beneath them, the square springs to life.

Literally.

The student is launched through the air and into the forest.

A mission simulation it is then.

Vance watches as Thomas is flung through the air.

He points at his leaving friend, "That's messed up... I love it."

He lets out a grin before being launched through the air as well.

A second later, the rest of the pads activate, sending everyone into the air, towards a forest filled with Humanity's enemy.

Oh, and you're falling about a hundred feet. Aura isn't going to help you here.

Hope you have a landing strategy.

Sterling would havw made a mental remark on how he didn't expect to be literally plunged into the initiation, but he was being loterally plunged into the initiation. The feeling of the wind in his hair, the groud speeding by below him, the... taste of bugd in his teeth, made sterling nearly whoop in excitement.

But it was not the time for that. Sterling took out his sword and held it above his head, taking control of the blade and descending into the forest. He then spawns 3 more swords facing outward and they begin to revolve around him, making sure anything in his way was sliced clean through.

Sienna tried to prepare herself for the launch. Turns out, that was a waste of time - if she hadn't had Aura she was pretty sure the jolt from the springboard might have broken her legs.

Only seconds to impact - no time to think about that. Sienna looked down at the treetops, scanning the foliage for an opening and reaching out with her Semblance...Acting as if on instinct she snapped an arm out, axe in hand, and felt it snag as the hooked underside of the blade caught a tree limb as big around as her arm. The branch was already in motion, bending towards the ground under Sienna's power - just fast enough that the impact didn't rip the weapon from her grasp, but slowing as it went, bleeding momentum from the falling Huntress-in-training until Sienna hung a mere seven feet above the ground.

She dislodged herself by converting Ladon Cyclone from twin handaxes to twin revolvers and landed easily on the forest floor, scanning her surroundings for any Grimm or fellow students.

She grinned a sort of grin that wasn't her usual friendly smile. It was a competitive "bring it on" grin as she kneels a little and let the platform shoot her high in the air. The feeling of flying was so invigorating that she couldn't help but do one or two back flips while yelling "WHEEE."

She then can see the trees beneath her approaching quickly. She brought her fans out and mounted them both together to make a regular sized shield with serrated edge blades. She pulled her shield arm back and countdown in her head before extending her shield arm out to a tree trunk. The blades quickly mounted on the trunk, a little too hard she might add as she felt the her arm jerk from the sudden force. The shield would spin using the remaining force to spiral her downward and safely on the ground.

Sterling started whising a tune as he flew through the trees, mentally noting the things that were cut down in front of him.



Branch

Leaves

sienna

Sienna?

sterling, caught off guard, loses his grip and his sword flies from his hand. The three other swords disappear instantly as the youg noble gracefully falls to the forest floor, and landing in a bush. His sword meanwhile made a home inside of a tree, right next to Sienna's head.

Sienna heard something cutting through the foliage behind her and spun in place, training her guns on the source of the noise. She promptly noticed two things: first, the source of the noise was Sterling, who was falling into a bush. Second and vastly more important, she was about to be stabbed in the face. With a yelp of alarm she dove to one side, hearing the sword embed itself in the tree almost to the hilt.

Sienna looked up at the blade, then over at Sterling's new least favorite bush. "...I think your landing strategy needs a little work."

Sterling gathers himself and exits the bush, brushing off his uniform.

"My humblest apologies Sienna." Sterling holds out his hand, his blade flying into it by the hilt.

"That was not supposed to happen."

Sienna got to her feet as well. "Looks like we're partners, then - at least we've already met each other, so we don't have to introduce ourselves."

"No, and frankly I don't want to. That sounds awful." Sienna glanced around. "So, to the north we go, then?" she suggested, selectively omitting that she wasn't entirely sure which way was north.

"Good question, one moment." Sterling raises his sword and begins to float upwards above the canopy, seconds later, he descends and sheaths his blade. 

"North is this way." Sterling gestures in a northward direction. 

"Let's go."

Sienna followed. "So is your Semblance something to do with magnetism? Since you can float around using your sword and all, and you figured out which way is north like some kind of human compass?" she asked after a moment.

"Yes, well kind of. My semblence allows me to duplicate and control any weapon I come into contact with." 2 more swords appear and  revolve around Sterling's hand before despawning. 

"I can only make up to 4 copies of a weapon right now."

As Nisha came to the ground, she heard a literal explosion above her. A second later, a tree the size of the average building fell on its side. The tree hit the ground, sending dust and shockwaves all around.

As the dust settled, Nisha noticed Tyson casually walking through the remains of the fallen tree with a curious look on his face.

He adjusts his glasses and upon noticing her, stands straight as a board.

he looks at the tree, then her, then back at the tree.

"My landing was... rushed." he offered in his defense.

Sienna thought that over. "That's...pretty neat, actually! Especially if your sword has a gun form - then you can shoot five times the number of bullets you normally would."

"Precisely." Sterlng's sword transformed into it's rifle form. 

"Well you now know my semblence, how about yours?" he asks.

"My Semblance lets me control plants...which doesn't sound all that impressive by comparison, really..." Sienna rubbed the back of her head with one hand. "But it's way more useful than you'd think."

Sienna's expression brightened somewhat. "It should be pretty helpful for this test at least - since there are trees all over the place and everything."

Tyson pursed his lips, "I apologize, but a reminder of the rules of this itiation were that the first person you make eye contact with will be your partner for all four years of our tenor at Beacon." he explained.

"It appears that we are partners for this test... and for the rest of the four years."
