Aeschel Aspro @DrTwit
Without knowing it, Aeschel had managed to back Daedalus into a proverbial corner with his greeting. Despite his best efforts, he couldn't think of a way to respond without either offending him and thus earning animosity for a snubbed greeting or making eye-contact and thus locking him in as his partner for the next four years. Mentally exhaling, he resigned himself to the reality that he had, in fact, no means of escaping this and thus had to bite the bullet. He turned and shook the faunus's hand briefly, making mildly intense eye contact for a full second before letting go and turning back towards the King Taijitu. "Daedalus Atsali."
As he listened to the faunus's proposed plan, he had to stop himself from glaring at the faunus in total bemused exasperation. A King Taijitu, completely healthy, was an enemy that a single first-year student could take down alone, with a responsible amount of skill. The one in question was heavily wounded, half-blind. By all accounts, it would be child's play with the two of them, yet he wanted to lure it away and trap it like a major level threat? This wasn't a Death Stalker or anything close... Staring unfazed at the Grimm in front of them, he instead offered his own plan as he glanced at Aeschel out of the corner of his cybernetic eye. "It makes more sense to take it down now, instead of risking it escaping and catching another student off-guard."
He readied his Icarus System again, setting it to Rapid Fire and disengaging the Dust Excitation units. "One of us draws its attention while the other aims for a vulnerability like one of its remaining eyes, switching when they get its attention... Or I can just take it on myself, your call."
The last statement came out a little sharper than he had intended, but the faunus's reaction had cause a falter in Daedalus's confidence in his abilities.
