Sienna ignored Nisha - not that she hadn't heard, just that the photograph was significantly more interesting. "Ozpin? I didn't know he and Dad knew each other..." she murmured.

"How did you know my parents? " Sterling asks Amanda.

Tyson glances at the picture, puzzled.

"This is your dad?" he asks, "Was he a hunter or something?"

Amanda stares at the picture of Sovereign, her eyes lingering on the photo for longer than anything else up to this point.

"We were in the same graduating class at Beacon," she explained, "Our teams, along with team STRQ, were considered the best of our year. In fact, I faced Sovereign multiple times in the Vital Festival."

"Did you win?" Thomas asked.

Amanda sent him a scathing glare, making the boy shrink into himself, bowing his head in shame for simple curiosity. Turning back to Sterling, she crossed her arms.

"Between the three of us," she continued, "it became a competition to outdo one another. We pushed one another, we shared data with one another, and more than once did your mother try to set me up with what she called... stress relief."

"Can't imagine why" chorused multiple thoughts.

"It was annoying," she whispered, "But she was a good friend, after Mount Glenn."

"Or something." Sienna glanced at Tyson, then back to the photo. "He finished combat school just fine, but he never went on to Beacon or any of the other academies."

Tyson scratches the back of his head, "Well, that doesn't make sense."

He quickly puts a hand up.

"No offence to your dad or anything, but from my experience, Headmaster's don't go around talking to every graduate in the kingdom. I mean, Chester didn't. Did he build the village with Ozpins help or something?"

"You could just call and ask him," Vance offers.

"Vance, I'm not you, I don't have Ozpin's number." Sienna turned back to Tyson and shrugged. "If he did, it's the first I've heard about it. I dunno what Ozpin would care about some random settlement outside the city, it's not like it was that special."

"I meant your dad," Vance deadpans.

Tyson shrugs, "Well I don't know, I haven't heard about many settlements outside the capitols, sounds special to me."

Sienna blinked. "Oh. Yeah, that wouldn't exactly work either...he's dead, Vance." Then in response to Tyson, "You don't hear about them because they tend to not be that big and not last that long."

Both Tyson and Vance blanch at the news. Azula actually covers her mouth with one hand, and Elise looks over in calm understanding.

"Oh... oh shit sorry for opening my mouth," Vance says.

Sienna shook her head, waving a hand dismissively. "Don't worry about it, you didn't know."

Everyone turns towards Sterling. Amanda looks at him like he was something beyond an idiot. Nevertheless, she takes a deep breath and sighs.

"Mount Glenn was Vale's biggest relocation project in its history. Three hundred hunters, and two thousand civilians came together to build a kingdom outside of the walls of Vale. Using the mountain as a barrier and mine, the town was built with the best minerals this side of Atlas. It was set to be the first successful relocation project in the history of the world."

"Only they didn't fully check the mountain," Vance whispers, his tone completely serious for once.

Amanda nodded.

"As they were mining, they ran into something that no sane human ever wants to come into contact with, a titan."

Azula gasps, and Elise goes deathly still. Tyson broke into a cold sweat and Vance didn't look to far behind.

"They would come to call it Fafnir," Amanda says, "With a single cry, it brought thousands of Grimm down upon the city. With it and it's forces, the hunters stationed there along with any backup that Vale could send in were decimated. Of the six hundred, seventy-three hunters that were sent or in the city that day, only forty made it out."

She turns to the picture of her and the other white-haired woman.

"My sister and I were among the few that made it out, along with your parents. The rest of our teams died that day, and Vale hasn't attempted a major relocation project since."

Sienna, a Vale native, had heard the story before. Even so, she still shivered at the mention of the Grimm Titan. Hearing that Amanda had been there jumped her opinion of the woman up a few notches - only a few, she's still an abrasive jerk after all.

Thomas stared at his mother, wide-eyed and confused. Vance notices, notching a brow of his own but saying nothing.

"It was a reminder not to hope for the impossible," Amanda monotones, "Thomas."

The Atlas boy was on his feet in record time, not that his mother noticed.

"Take everyone to their quarters for the trip."

He nods and gestures for everyone to follow him.

Only for Amanda to put an arm between him and the group.

"Not you."

Opal looks at her, the princess shrinks under the gaze of the Atlas commander. She tries to stay, but Amanda just waits for her to leave the room with the rest of the students. She snaps her fingers, and Sterling found himself sitting in a chair. Amanda takes a seat, crossing her legs as she does so.

Amanda raises an eyebrow, only to shake her head.

"Ignorance is the trait of a dead man, remove it before it causes your teammates death. Or don't, and save the rest of us the horror of dealing with yet another team of idiots."

“No,” Amanda admits, “You weren’t.”

She leans forward her eyes never blinking as she studies every inch of Sterling’s form.

“You were kept here because at the end of the day, you are more important than anyone else within this facility, myself included. I’m just making sure you understand that.”

“Only a king can rule Mistral,” Amanda corrects him, “Opal is nothing more than a tool for the current king to continue his rule and through you. And as far as I can tell, you’ve already willingly become the puppet.”
