Current I'd love to do a proper roleplay in the One Piece verse. It is such a shame they are so hard to come by...

Ruby Mamoru

Team Lance was beginning to move to the entrance of the arena, being ready to go in at any moment. After just having finished her small speech to prepare her team-members, Mina out of all people decided to plan ahead with Ruby. While the two of them had some interesting interactions in the past, namely because of their weird relationships with Amane, all of these things mattered not in the face of the exercise. Here they would have to cooperate at any cost because they really would not stand any chance at all otherwise against the famous prefects. After Mina's proposition, Ruby stared at her for just a second too long, blinked once and then replied with a slight nod.

"That sounds like a plan."

Mentally however, Ruby added: "Try to keep up."

With the teams being prepped for the upcoming task there was only the late-arrival Acion to be briefed after he had just been informed of the situation by Dulga. The boy would soon approach Ruby as the team-leader so that she could include him in the strategy. Although to be fair, there really wasn't that much of a strategy to begin with... she'd definitely have to work on that. Regardless, Acion raised a valid point concerning his aerial abilities. His mention of the usefulness of such abilities in being the watching eye above the battlefield reminded Ruby of the time when Acion and her had clashed in battle during the first exercise in which she had participated. It had been a rather intense battle in which both combatants had seemed to be of equal strength... However, moments before they had wanted to go all out they had been so rudely interrupted... therefore they had never been able to find out who was stronger. Regardless, Ruby knew to respect Acion's power, having experienced it first hand, and therefore was able to trust him with splitting off from the group, albeit a short distance. The catgirl gave Acion a short and confident nod.

"Alright. Just stay within hearing distance so we will be able to communicate considering the fact that we don't use the ear-pieces as per Dulga's advice." Ruby was about to turn away before she remembered something.
"Oh and, I do have enhanced hearing." She pointed to her large feline ears.
"So, keep that in mind." and with that, the briefing was finally concluded.

Her opinion of Acion, at least regarding his actual combat abilities, was fairly high and his presence gave her more confidence regarding the outcome of the exercise.

Ruby moved herself to the entrance to the arena in which the exercise would take place to regroup with the full Team Lance. Taking a final glance around her class-/team mates, Ruby was ready to rush into the scene. "Le-"
Her announcement was interrupted by a certain shield-bearer bursting her way through the door into the training area. The catgirl was taken aback a bit by this sudden development but quickly shook her head to regain her composure and then dashed through the door with her teammembers.

As of this moment they were sort of aimlessly wandering through the arena, waiting for intel by their watchful eye in the sky, Acion. Luckily said intel wouldn't have to wait for long as a bonechilling scream and loud noises of demolition and destruction would drown out the oddly peaceful quietness of the area just seconds before. They were enough to stop Ruby in her tracks, turning her head towards the sky to see what Acion had to say as he was the only one being able to see the immense threat causing such threatening sounds.

His wild body movements and gesturing left Ruby staring at the birdie-boy with a confused expression.

Once he was finally done she would point at her feline ears with a still neutral expression on her face, although there was a sliiiiight hint of annoyance visible, trying to signal him that she was, in fact, able to hear him.


On the prefects' side of things, the tactical discussion was kept much more simple than that of the students. They had already worked together countless of times as part of their training, meaning that this was just routine formation for them, with some minor adjustments made to it. However, hearing her teamcaptain tell Kiyoko to just cause some chaos, made her eyes light up immediately. "This is going to be fuuuuuuuunnnnn~~" Kiyoko claimed before splitting apart from the group together with Felix.
As they were walking to a position where they'd be able to mess with the students the best, Felix began a conversation.
"We could honestly just let Nestor go rampage and he'd be able to take all of them out. Buuuuuttttttt... where is the fun in that? I want to mess with them!"
Once Felix told Kiyoko to not worry about her "pretty little head" the ghostly girl immediately turned around and stuck her tongue out towards Felix in childish defiance. "You know very well that I'll be fine!... I wonder, should I pay our opponents a visit and say hello to them? Or would you rather have an elaborate scheme to drive them crazy!" Kiyoko pronounced the word "crazy" with a load of cheerful enthusiasm and a hint of evilness in it.
"Tho' You'd have to do the planning. I'm just good at flying in and giving them a good old scare!"
Kiyoko giggled.
As of now both of them were just moving along the back alleys located in the outer parts of the arena whereas most of the action was happening in the central part of it. They were preparing to be in a flanking position!

Ruby Mamoru

Being tasked with leading her own team in this exercise, Ruby would walk over to gather "Team Lance" around her. As of now, according to Dulga, it consisted of Yukari, Mina, Mamoru and, of course, Ruby. It was hard to judge what fighting power would be possible to be brought by this team, but they all seemed like swift combatants. Now, the next hurdle to overcome was the fact that Ruby was relatively new to the class, having done one grande exercise with the others and not having been part of the "incident" which many of the others underwent recently. Therefore she did not have a solid chance to get a good grasp of the other's quirks and abilities, which made planning for a strategy difficult.
"Okay everyone!" The catgirl eyed her teammates for this upcoming task.
"As mentioned before, we don't know their quirks. This means we can't expect what they throw at us. Therefore, we should be ready for anything. Furthermore, I believe it'd be best if we stuck together at all times. As a group, we have a higher chance to anticipate and avoid their attacks." Ruby let out a small sigh and eyed her partners.
"These things aside though, they probably underestimate us quite a bit and don't consider us to be a big threat. Our best shot is to overwhelm them before they have a chance to react. A quick, precise strike by all members of our team to overwhelm a single member of them, before they have a chance to raise their defenses adequately."
It was now that Ruby noticed that the other team was already getting ready to commence the exercise, having most likely finished their pep-talk.
"I wish we'd have more time to figure out synergies between our quirks, but we'll have to make do with what we have.
Before leaving it at that, Ruby noticed that this really wasn't the right note to end it at. The tone was all negative and wouldn't motivate anyone to do their best. With a somewhat forced smirk, Ruby addressed her group once more.
"Anyways, this is our chance to prove ourselves to the elite of this school. Let's show them what this future generation of heroes is capable of."
With these words as her final words, Ruby would walk back over to Dulga to signal that they were ready to go.

Ruby Mamoru

Cops and robbers, huh? Now that just sounds convenient to Ruby. After all, her quirk was practically made for restraining and detaining people, she wouldn't even need the tape for it. However, before she got too much into thinking strategy for this little exercise, she glanced over to a particular figure approaching her. One whose presence she did not exactly expect in this environment. Just before she was able to say anything to Amane after making eye-contact with him, he would point out her tail. This prompted Ruby to quickly look at her tail and, sure enough, it was swaying. "Tsk" It was painfully easy to tell her emotions through the subtle notions of her body, while her face, in contrast, gave hardly any information about her state of mind. She'd really have to work on suppressing those kinds of things. Since Amane had caught her so off guard, she had no clever rebuttal or anything of the sorts to what he said to her. However, before she had any chance to say anything at all he had already walked past her. Once again she missed the chance to reply and was left dumbfounded. Not take them lightly? Of course, she wouldn't take them lightly!

While frustrated at Amane's statement, it did make the catgirl think again. Maybe he had a point. Obviously, since he wasn't familiar with her quirk too much, he wouldn't know her gameplan was, but his implications were enough to make Ruby reconsider.
Yes, in theory, it would be easy to touch them and thus detain them for a while, or at least render them motionless until something else could be done. But to get to that point she'd have to get close enough to touch them first! Considering what Amane had said, this almost trivial task would probably end up being much more difficult than initially anticipated by her.

Once the class had grouped up to form a strategy, Dulga was quick to take the lead on giving directions and ideas. And quite frankly, they seemed reasonable enough. Honestly, Ruby was just happy to be considered the leader of her team, even if that did not mean much. In her mind it was a sort of acknowledgment of her skill and that alone was enough to satisfy her.
Eventually, Dulga had finished her explanation of her plan. It was then when Ruby was able to add something.
She lifted her right hand and used her left hand to point at her palm. "If I touch them just once with my hand I can render them completely immobile thanks to my quirk. They won't be able to move or retaliate, as long as they wear clothes anyway since I can only freeze those. However, while they probably won't be able to do much in that state, we cannot move them into any cell whatsoever either as it becomes impossible to move them by then. I suggest we use that time to let Hammer Team do damage to them because, quite frankly, I probably won't be able to really damage them myself." She added the last part due to her acknowledgment of their massive skill difference after what Amane had said. "So just let me touch them and finish those who are locked down off, ideally before my quirk wears off. Even if that is probably easier said than done..."
This was all Ruby wanted to add for now. The plan Dulga thought of seemed solid in theory, all that was missing would be the execution.

Izumo Hatsue

Seeing the robotic canine crash to the floor and slide over it in a clear lifeless fashion filled Izu with a rush of euphoria. It was an amazing feeling having slain her first prey, or rather, the substitute for a villain in this exercise. It was the mixture of adrenaline together with euphoria that really gave her a rush. However, despite the rush, Izu began thinking, leaning against a wall crossing her arms while eyeing the corpse of the ex-robot whose circuits had certainly died.

"If I keep running like that I will just run into more hostile forces... Even if I can deal with these robots easily, what about the ones I have to rescue? They... they would get affected by this sound aswell likely. At least from what I've learned about computers when talking to Jason... maybe..."
She took out another sheet of paper and began scrabbling on it. Afterwards, the same thing as on the first one was written down, however this time there was a range indicator showing only a limited range about 10 meters around Izu! This was her solution to the collateral damage problem. She didn't know that she helped Marius with that, she just did not want to break any of the rescue robots.
For now Izu pressed on, slaying the robots that got too close to her with her "Kill Aura", which was just the sound, and searching for people to be rescued.

Jason Akizuki

Jason on the other hand did not really have to think at all. His quirk was quite literally doing all the work for him here. As of now the boy was riding on top of a canine robot whom he had essentially tamed and taken control over, behind him were four additional robots following him each carrying one of the bots to be rescued which were distributed all over the exam grounds. There were tiny robots sitting on top of the rescue bots, tending to their wounds or rather injuries in this case trying to fix them. All the while Jason simply gave directions on where to run next, running with his group of mechanical canines towards the start bringing along four rescue bots.
He was quite frankly having a blast and at the same time really farming those points. However, even then he still didn't drop his serious expression. After all this was meant to simulate a life threatening situation! Getting those rescue bots to safety was top priority.

"I wonder if Izu can deal with those dogs... they look quite powerful." He claimed while riding towards the start.

As the upperclassmen were waiting outside of the classroom for the signal to make their grand debut Kiyoko couldn't help but feel all giggly, wobbly and excited. She had already seen some of the students she'd be training with today and had already grown fond of them. They were ab~so~lute~ly adorable to her! Currently the 5 of them were waiting outside of the classroom as their teach gave 1-A the short introduction to the topic at hand before finally letting them in.

However, before they were let in Kiyoko had something to say to the other prefects.
Kiyoko said not too loudly so that noone inside would actually hear them.
"Can we get a cool entrance? Like with music and super cool walks!" The ghostly girl claimed while doing fingerguns all around her, mostly pointing at Shihone though, and making shooting noises with her mouth. "We have to be coooooool after all!" Upon, inevitably, being denied that request and scolded for it by their leader, the prefects were called in.

Kiyoko walked in with a wide smile, proudly wearing her special uniform as she waved to the students whom she had already met prior in the dorms. However, as it was tradition, she bowed in synch with the other elites. For the rest of the short introduction ceremony, she stayed quiet and only let their leader do the talking, he was much better at it anyways and Kiyoko did not want to get scolded by Yaya or Berg again.

Ruby Mamoru

The summary for Ruby's week wasn't nearly as interesting as other people's was. But then again, it's not every week that something special can happen after all! Those normal, uneventful weeks are in actuality quite important to get a sense of normalcy back into the lives of the students. While Ruby wasn't directly involved in any of the important events that transpired, her sparring with Amane and subsequent training with Dulga, while both staying as a singular event, were her highlights of the recent time. Especially the former obviously even though she hadn't said a word to him since. Not like there was any reason to, anyways. The training with Dulga was enjoyable, even though her workout plan did not line up with what Ruby's focus points. In any case, the rest of the time off was spent recovering from her minor injuries to her hands and arms while keeping up with her literature. Quite frankly, in the live of the catgirl, there was neither interest nor time for social interactions so far and only a few people had managed to evoke her interest but she did not go out of her way to meet anyone yet to hang out.

Anyways, being back in class was nice. There was a certain rhythm to the normal schoolday, even if no day was like the last when it came to hero training. This day would prove as yet another example as quite peculiar people would introduce themselves to the unsuspecting class 1-A. Ruby's catears perked up, staying up in attention as she followed every word the prefects, or rather in this case, Grayson had to say. Since Ruby had moved up to 1-A and wasn't originally placed there after the entrance exams, she felt as though she had to prove herself to stay there. Which is why, after the speech of Grayson was so abruptly ended with a rather stern command, Ruby was one of the first people to have left the classroom to head towards the changing room.
Without saying much to anyone else the catgirl put on her costume in record time, making sure that the leather as well as her unique custom weapon was linked together well so they wouldn't cause any malfunctions during the actual exercise which was about to come up. As the neko arrived at the entrance to the training grounds she seemed as focused and expressionless, almost cold as ever; However, if one paid close attention they could see both her feline ears perked up and her tail swaying ever so slightly, signaling her clear enjoyment and excitement of the situation that was about to unfold. Whether anyone would be able to pick up those subtle clues or not would definitely depend on their observation and knowledge of cats (lol).

Izumo Hatsue

This was it; It was finally on. The very beginning of her journey in a new world of heroes, one vastly different from anything she had experienced before in the musical industry. It was all kinds of exciting for her and, because she could hardly contain herself and the enthusiasm towards everything related to it, Izu ran at the very forefront of students, although gradually the masses would thin out as they ran into a multitude of directions at different speeds. However, being one of the first people to leave the starting area had its negatives as well. After all when it came to the exercise it was both "First comes first serves" but also a huge risk to rush blindly into the hurdles and dangers that would be thrown at the potential students to test their abilities for the hero course.

As for the aspiring idol-turned-hero, Izu would soon come to face with the first opposition of many; Mechanical canines. Why exactly robot dogs were thrown at her was beyond the girl to figure out. Besides, there was no time to think about such details in the moment anyways.

The blue-haired girl stood opposite of the mechanically growling canine, its sensors fixed upon her frame as she took a defensive stance.
"E-eeek! Robot... dogs..." She said out loud as she mustered her first foe. It managed to stop her dead in her tracks and the both scared and disgusted facial expression of hers made it easy to see just how excited she was that it were canines she was up against, especially after she was already frightened by one earlier today. Spoiler: She was not happy at all to see robo-dogs.
Izu began thinking. "What do I do... what do I do.... hmm... against dogs... and robots?"
But her thinking took too long. The mechanical being lunged at her, a heavy and hostile machinery pouncing at her lik that was really not a pleasant sight, and the idol only managed to escape at the last possible moment by essentially combat-rolling to the side. Now being crouched down after the roll with one knee on the floor, Izu quickly grabbed her backpack from her shoulders and opened it while the canine recovered from the missed attack. "Come on... come on... faster! This should work..."
She opened the bag, grabbed a pen together with a piece of paper and then quickly proceeded to scribble the words "Dog Whistle" onto it. Afterwards she began imagining a very loud beeping noise, one that would make her bones shiver and give her goosebumps if heard by herself. After only a short moment, she held the paper up in full view of the canine and then suddenly, an incredibly loud noise would be played. A noise of such high frequency that it was unable to be heard by humans, luckily. That's right... she played the sound of a Dog Whistle at incredibly high volume!

~Dramatic zoom-in, camera freeze~

Izumo Hatsue - Quirk: Onomatopoeia

By writing down the describtion of a sound while simultaneously thinking about it, Izumo can create any sound which she wants to as long as she herself sufficiently both knows what it sounds like in great detail and can imagine said noise clearly. She can adjust the frequency, pitch and volume of it, allowing her to create sounds which she cannot even hear by shifting the pitch of a sound she is familiar with!
Furthermore, her quirk allows her to visualize any noise that she hears into floating text, visible for anyone, describing the heard sound.

This bean @liferusher and I would be interested in joining! In case you need two more :)

Jason Akizuki

Izumo Hatsue

Now Hatsue felt just a little awkward admittedly. Even if the girl had reassured her that it was no problem that she had thought of her as a young child, it was still a somewhat embarrassing mistake, one which she wanted to just walk off. With a somewhat clumsy smile while also scratching the back of her head awkwardly, Izu replied back to the girl in front of her shortly before they were set into motion.
"Oh, uh... I am terribly sorry for making the mistake then! I am glad to hear that you are here on your own merits. And about me... well, I like to think that I can handle being both."
Before anything else could be said though, the platform and gigantic elevator that they were on began moving and shortly afte the countdown already started as they approached the surface. The very sudden start of the whole exam left both Jason and Izu surprised. So much so that they both stared at each other for a few seconds before both look at Kat in front of them. Once they were done being baffled, Jason was the first to talk.
"You better pass this exam Izu!" And without a warning, Jason suddenly began ranning into a random direction, likely together with other students in his close proximity. Izu smiled with a look of determination on her face and shouted back.
"Speak for yourself!"
Before turning towards her newly met co-competitor Kat.-
"And you better pass it too, alright? Or else I'll be disappointed! I am counting on you." The cutesy popstar gave her an adorable peace sign combined with a motivating smile before turning into the opposite direction of Jason and just running herself without any aim in particular.
