"Well I know that the two of us are avatars. But what does that mean? is there a class we can take on this subject?"

"Mythology," Ozpin explained with a small sigh.

"Children, the fact of the matter is that you have access to powers that drawf nearly every huntsman on Remnant. Mr Tikeri if you were able to draw upon your position, I dare say that even your father wouldn't be able to beat you."

Behind him, Tyson was furiously scribbling down notes. The action brought a small smile to the headmasters face. Not even the threat of being compared to gods was enough to stop him from helping as well as he could.

"To put it simply, the Avatars are a collection of three individuals that are chosen by each of the three founding Goddesses. Mandanus, goddess of Order chooses her Avatar to order and reform the land as they see fit. If the stories are to be believed, with was Mandanus first Avatar that shaped the surface of Remnant, and forged the prisons of the Titans."

The headmaster glanced to Sienna, "Considering the data, I would say that Mandanus has chosen you. A good choice, considering your semblance, but they always did make interesting choices."

"You knew the other Avatars, didn't you?" Tyson surmised.

The headmaster nodded gravely, "It has been a long time. The last time that a set of Avatars was chosen, none of the four Kingdoms had been formed. It was a time of war and strife that history has long forgotten. Your lessons say that the Great War 80 years ago was the greatest war, compared to the conflicts of that age, the great was nothing but a footnote."

His gaze turned softly to Sterling, "Most of the destruction was done by your predecessor. Ashaka, chooses the champion of potential, the one who stands as the pinnacle of what humanity can achieve."

Next he glanced at Nisha, "Levanael, goddess of Chaos on the other hand, chooses her Avatar to be the one to ensure the changing of times. The guardian of freedom, and all things that chose to slice out a piece of the world that Mandanus creates. Together the three Avatars balance all things in the universe, and their choices shape the world as the goddess believe that it is the choices of man that decide the fate of the world, not them. In fact, the four hunter team was based on the interplay between the Avatars.

Finally, he turns to Tyson, "And the normal man that reminds them of what they once were."

Sienna had to take more than a few seconds to process that, fidgeting with a lock of her hair. "You're saying we're supposed to change the fate of the world or something? That...that doesn't make any sense. Why us? We're just students - first-year students! Shouldn't they pick, I don't know, actual Huntsmen and Huntresses? People like Sterling's dad?"

"You're right, it doesn't make sense," Tyson agrees, "Give Stephon the same power as Sterling and he'd be bringing down countries."

Ozpin shook his head, "Stephon, while powerful, has already realized his maximum potential. Sterling, on the other hand, has barely even begun to taste the power that he could wield. Ashaka is many things, foolish is not one of them. Sterling has a great deal of power that is just waiting to be unlocked. If I had to hazard a guess, her next best choice would've been Miss Rose or Mr Xander."

"So she chose him because he was younger?" Tyson guesses.

"Moldable," Ozpin corrects, "As much as I want to believe otherwise, you are still students. You haven't seen the world for what it is. You have visions, dreams, aspirations and ideals that you want to live up to. The rest of us," he chuckles mirthlessly, "Have lost sight of our dreams a long time ago. A new world needs a new dream, who better than the ones working to inherit it."

Sienna fell silent, unsure exactly how to react. The whole bit about the world crushing ideals and dreams was pretty damn bleak all things considered - but hadn't he just said that Avatars were supposed to shape the world's destiny? Something along those lines anyway. Which should mean they could fix that, right?

"I will go over everything that I can. Starting today, the two of you will be taught by me personally and only a select few others," Ozpin says, "Unfortunately, this places you as my apprentices. For this reason, I have to bar either of you from participating in the Vital Festival."
