"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."

"That's fair." Sterling says, hiding his disappointment.

"So we won't be going to our regular classes anymore?" Sienna asked, not hiding her disappointment as it didn't exist. She still hadn't sorted out how she felt about this whole thing.

"You will be bared from combat classes, but I see no reason to deny you the chance to learn the finer points of our profession. Demigods you may be, the least I can do is let you remain children, if only for a little longer," Ozpin says, "The staff will be informed, as well as select team leaders. For now, rest and in the morning, I hope you can forgive me for letting this happen."

With that, the headmaster turns toward the waiting elevator. Even as the doors closed behind him, he still looked at the team with pity.

"There's a chance that he's worried about your continued existence since you're no longer human, but that could be just me," Tyson drawls.

"Yeah but that's not his fault, is it? I don't see how it could be. And besides, we're doing an alright job of existing so far," Sienna said.

Tyson opens his mouth, only to close it again.

"Stop being logical, that's my only contribution to this team."

Nisha rest her head in her hands. She is hearing everything they are saying but she is having trouble processing this. Demi-gods....snake faunes... everything. She is getting exhausted just trying to get a firm grasp of things. Sighing she mumbled barely audible, "Can we just stop for a moment?"

"We should go back to our room," Sienna agreed. "I feel like I could sleep for a week after all this...whatever it is." Which was only half-true. Physically she felt she might fall over on the spot but her mind was buzzing with thoughts about what exactly being a demigod would entail.

Back in the room, team Sunset went about to their individual bunks. Tyson had made an effort to put a "Do not disturb" sign on their door, and considering the bombs that he put on said door, he was planning on enforcing that sign. The night went around, and everyone went to sleep. Not everyone dreamed.

***

Sterling

For sterling, the second he closed his eyes he found himself standing in the floor of a colliseum. He could hear the crowd in the distance, but there was nothing but black. From the darkness, a single knight appeared.



"YoU aRe PoTeNtIaL?" it scoffed, "pAtHeTiC."

***

Sienna

It was a broken guarden. The plants wilting, the sun smoldering ahead. Yet in the center of it all, a snake.



"Order? What a small thing you are."

***

Nisha

Sand, endless sand as far as the eye can see. The night sky stretched on, but there was no stars.

What the hell is this?

Nisha stood there in the ocean of sand, turning around for any sign of something other than sand. It was in vain. She hunched forward and hugged herself, taking small steps forward.

Well, anything would look small from that height. Sienna took a step back, automatically reaching with her Semblance for any of the plants nearby that could be restored to life - and thus used to defend herself if the serpent attacked. If any of them would respond to her command they would be more useful than using the seeds she carried.

Nisha

The desert stretched on forever. Every step only put the dones behind her, and the horizon remained forever out of reach. Minutes stretched out to hours, hours turned into something else.

She couldn't tell how long it had been.

The night was cold.

There are no stars in the sky, and it looked down as if to ask.

"What's the point of going on? There's nothing there, so why go on?"

Sienna

There was nothing.

An infinite mass of water, deep, cold and unforgiving. The only thing that was alive was the thing in front of her. It grinned, as well as a behemoth like it could grin.

"You reach for help? Even now, you waste your time looking for something else to do the fighting for you?"

It sounded... disappointed.


Sterling

There's a gruff, broken sound that Sterling recognized as a laugh.

"ChOsEn? YoU aRe NoThInG WiThOuT yOuR sOuL."

He points, and Sterling realizes that there's nothing in his hands. No sword, nothing. Just him and his hands.

A single step brought his attention to the knight. It lowered its sword, a black mass of disgusting steel pointed straight at his heart.

"TeLl Me, WhErE iS yOuR fAmIlY? WhEn YoU NeEd ThEm, WhErE aRe ThEy?"

"That has to be the stupidest way I've ever heard anyone try and describe my Semblance." Sienna was annoyed, both by the insult and the fact that apparently all of her seeds were gone as well. That was rather frustrating.

The thought keeps echoing in her head. "Why continue? Why go on? Nothing. Just give up." Replaying over in her mind that her body was the only thing determined to keep moving straight. No particular direction in mind but just walking forward.

Sienna

The serpent stretched down, snout mere feet away from the girl. It looked ready to snap her up in its jaw hissing, it's massive touch flicking at Sienna's hair.

"How would you like me to sssspeak of it?"

Nisha

The next step she took, the sand turned to grass. Dunes of sand transformed to flowing grasslands. The night sky was blasted away to a calm orange of a new morning.

On the top of a distant hill, a woman held something in her hand.



She looked up from her orb and stared down at Nisha with a blank expression.
