The new girl's reminder of the odd number of students in the class made Kai stand up a little straighter, waving his hand about and laughing off the comment. "Aheh, I didn't mean like, literally by myself. I knew there'd at least be some people left to hang out with. Good to meet you, Haruishi."She seems pretty er, straight forwards. That ain't a bad thing though...unless she ends up being super anal about everything.
Mari then awkwardly attempted to introduce her partner, who had unfortunately vanished before Kai even managed to greet her. The teen putting a hand on his neck as he looked over towards the group Suguro had fled to. "I was actually just about to ask about her. Suguro huh? She turned tail and ran as soon as you started walking towards me. Did I scare her?"
He crossed his arms, frowning as Mari told him of the small blue-haired girl's shy personality. "Crap. I wasn't trying to freak her out. Maybe I'll try talking to her after all the excitements calmed down."
Meeting Mari's face, he put a hand on his hip. "Anyways, you're right. We still gotta find someone. You got any ideas? You've at least had a little time with everyone."
As luck would have it, the duo didn't have to seek out a third member of their party on their own, as one approached them all on her own. Kai's dark brown eyes glancing past Mari to spot the new girl and flash a grin, and give a wave towards her after Mari answer her request. "And with that, we got a full trio. Thanks Hayakawa. The name's Kai Mori."Well, that was easy. She looks a little pompous, but looks can be deceiving after all. I probably look like just some skinny nerd.
Mari wasted no time in focusing the newly formed group's attention on the objective of the upcoming exercise. Kai leaning his head in a bit towards her in a semi-huddle as he nodded along to her review and analysis of the situation. "So, still be on the look out for any dummies, but we're most likely gonna end up on the offensive. We can handle that."
The conversation then shifted back towards him being a late arrival, and the parties Quirks. Kai's eyes lighting up a bit at Mari's explanation of her own Quirk, looking her up and down in awe. "Super speed and lightning!? That's awesome! I bet you didn't have much issue making it on time!"
Taking a step back and putting on a toothy grin, Kai dropped his backpack behind him before he brought up his fist to pump it. "As for what I can do? It'd be easier to show you guys, and explain as I go."
His hands moved down to tuck into his belly pocket, as a red, inky looking liquid began to bubble from underneath his hoodie behind his shoulders. Suddenly, two long, crimson tentacles shot out from the bespectacled boy's back. The twin appendages standing up behind him as they glistened in the light, as if the sun's rays were reflecting off of the surface of water. One of the tentacles moving to push up his glasses as he spoke. "I've got these two tentacles that form out of my back. I can stretch them out, curl them, reshape them, a lot of stuff. They're super flexible. And if I need something a bit stronger..."
The two tentacles shivered, inflating as five 'fingers' appeared out of their tips. The liquid sheen of them fading away as they turned a deeper red, now appearing as a set of two large, muscled human arms that crossed above Kai's head. "I can turn them solid. They're heavier and slower, but I can still bend em a bit."
