Students are sparring with one another, hitting targets, and practicing their technique. The air is filled with the dull clangs of metal-on-metal, thuds, and kicked up dust.

Roy makes his way to the center of the arena, Joyeuse hanging over his shoulder.

Pausing for a moment, he takes in a deep breath.
"Hey! Any of you punks feel like getting wrecked?! Don't be shy! Hell, I'll even take two of you on at once!" he shouts.

Shard was laying against a wall when some bozo in a trenchcoat walked in and issued a challenge.
All Shard could do was laugh. Loudly.
"Well, certainly not lacking in confidence, are ya?" He said, still laughing.
Shard stood up
"Getting your ass handed to you by one person not enough? Or do want two so that you won't seem like a chump when your getting patched up?"
Shard made his way over to this egotistical asshole
"In any case, I accept your challenge" He says, still smiling.
"I'll be challenge enough for you, I think."

Roy could hear laughing, and turned to face its source.

"You laughing at me punk?" Roy bellows angrily.

Roy grabbed a knife from his belt and threw in Shard's direction. The knife digs into the wall, just next to his head.

That statement makes Shard laugh even harder.
"Y...You know... It's like this.... This is your first time... Talking shit hahaha" He continues laughing, not even flinching as the dagger sinks into the wall.
He pull the knife out of the wall
"Hey, this is a pretty good knife."
Shard grins and plunges it back into the wall.
"So, we gonna dance? Or are you just what you appear to be?"

Roy was pleased to see that this guy wasn't a total wimp. And gave a smirk.

"You know, that sword of yours looks like a piece of crap..." unsheathing Joyeuse and tossing the scabbard aside as he walks closer to Shard.

He then stands sideways, facing Shard taking up a fencer's stance.

"Let's see if your skills match that scrap-metal you've got there"

He turns his blade upwards towards Shard.

"At your ready, punk!"

"Hehe, this'll be interesting. An Alley-Cat wanting to join a fight between a man and a child."
Shard unhooks Shrapnel from its sheath, giving it a twirl as he gets into stance.
"Well, I say the Tabby gets to move first." Says Shard, eyes never leaving Bozo's.

Not even turning to face Nero, eyes on Shard

"Tabby, huh? That explains the smell"

"Yeah, sure, kitty cat, feel free to join in, just don't blame me if you end up being stung"


Roy begins using his footwork to orbit Shard, so Nero and Shard are within his line of sight.

"Ugh, enough talk, ladies! Let's go!"

Roy dashes towards Shard and lunges his blade at Shard's abdomen.

"Just as I thought"
Already half turned from talking to Tabby, Shard turned the rest of the distance and caught Bozo's blade with Shrapnel sheath on his back. He bent over quickly, trying to pull his attacker over his back and kick him towards Tabby on his way over.

"Tch! Get your dirty hands off me!"

Roy stabs Joyeuse into the ground behind him and kicks out of Shard's grasp. He then uses Joyeuse to pivot back onto his feet and throws a knife at Shard.

Having taken the shot in the leg, Shard instinctively ducks down towards it, letting the knife sail over his head towards Tabby.
"Nice to know my Aura can do SOMETHING other than basic strength boost."
Shard's leg would receive a nasty bruise, but he could still fight. That's all that matters, in the end.
Standing up, and quickly analyzing the situation, Shard jumps backwards so he can see both opponents at once.
He takes a swing at the floor of the Arena, carving a sizeable scar.
He then jams Shrapnel into the ground and cracks his knuckles and neck.
Grabbing Shrapnel again, he says "Cheap shots all you two are good for? If so, you're gonna have a hard time against me!"
As he says this, Shrapnel ejects spikes which start spinning around the blade.
"Now then, do we tango? Or waltz?"

"Nice trick, I'll do you one better"

Roy throws another knife directly at the incoming one, causing the two to collide mid-air above Shard. The resulting impact would trigger an explosion.

Dammit! I'm on the defensive here!
Seeing no option to get into a could offensive position, Shard opts to stay on the defensive until he can see an decent opening for him.
As the knives once again make their way towards Shard, he dives backwards. He won't get away from the explosion, but at least it won't be as bad.
The knives collide as Shard is mid-air, and the shock-wave slams Shard spine-first into the floor. He skids for a bit before using the momentum to flip himself onto his feet in a crouching stance.
He remains in this stance, waiting for another attack, or an opening that would let him take some sort of offensive action.

Roy charges forward, passed the downed Shard in a zig-zag path. The rounds whiz through the air, narrowly missing Roy as he darts in.

"Gotta be faster than that, kitty cat!"

He throws Joyeuse ahead of him into the ground in front of Nero at a 70 degree angle, jumps on the hilt and backwards into the air and throws two knives at Nero. One at Nero's feet, the other at the base of Joyeuse, causing it to shoot into the air, where Roy catches it and lands far back away.

Shard swings his cloak around so that it covers him completely. The Carbon in it will take the shots, so Shard was safe-ish for now. So long as Bozo didn't try to take him on right now he'd be fine.
Shard pointed the Armbrust at the ground and fired a Sleeper Dart, then pulled out a Gel Bolt and placed it with the Sleeper. Firing it would have caused it to explode Gel, which he didn't want right this moment. It would sit there until someone got in range of the Sleeper, and then it would detonate when they fell.
As soon as Shard heard a break in the shooting, he stood up and fired a Flasher Bolt at Tabby's feet, and jumped away from the Sleeper.
As Tabby got close to the wall, Shard activated Shrapnel's secondary function. Aiming at the knife he still stuck in it, he locked on, and pulled it out, aiming to stab the Alley-cat in the back when he got to the wall.

Roy uses compact slashes to pick off the rounds heading his way. And lands. He sees that the two are preoccupied with each other, but Shard's closer. So he darts in at attempts a hurricane of slashes at Shard.

Eyeing Bozo running at him, Shard positions himself so that Roy would have to run into the Sleeper Bolt's field to get at him.

Roy sees Shard move, but not enough for it to effectively be in a position to counter "Nu uh, you ain't leading me!"

He halts his charge, leaps backwards into the air and throws a knife right at Shard.

He'd then run a wide circle around Shard, but when he's close enough to Nero, he'd change his charge and let loose a hurricane of slashes at Nero, instead.

Shard caught Roy's knife with his boot, freezing his leg half-way up his shin, and in the process, positioned himself so Tabby's knife would hit his back and bounce off his armour.
This ice'll leave a nasty freeze-burn after this. Hell, it stings as is. Bastard will pay for that!
Stomping his icy foot so as to remove the knife, Shard gritted his teeth, ignoring the pain for the most part.
This pain is nothing compared to bandit punishment. Maneuvering with this is gonna be a bitch. It'll make a good club in the meantime, at least.
"Thanks, Bozo. Now I have a blunt weapon to add to my collection" Shard says, motioning to his frozen leg.
Grabbing the knife Tabby had thrown, Shard leapt forward, landing on the frozen leg and using it to slide forward, going to trip Roy up. If he succeeded, he would use the knife to cut Roy as he slid.


((OOC, he's still got Shrapnel, it's just way too big for the accuracy he needs here.))

Roy sees the cat-boy checking his scroll.

'Hah! Now I've got'cya!' when suddenly Nero pulls out a rifle and fires a round.

'Shit'

Roy has no choice, he dives his full body into a ground roll to the left. The round was going way to fast for him to take lightly.

Regaining his footing, as Shard comes sliding in towards him. Roy would intercept Shard by grabbing the wrist with the knife in it, pry it away from him, leap off, and tuck-and-roll away.

"Auditioning for "Swan Lake" on ice, freak?"

Shard kept sliding after Roy took his knife. However, not willing to let that be the end of it, he twisted his body to line up the Armbrust and fired a Grav-Bolt just behind Roy.
Shard stood up (Awkwardly) and swapped bolt cartridge to one filled with plain bolts.
Taking aim, he fired six shots at Tabby. One at each leg, one at his stomach, one at his chest, and one at chest level either side of him.

When Roy regains his footing, he can feel his body being pulled backwards.

'The fu...?' his thought is interrupted by a high speed round giving off a pale blue flash as it passes just in front of him.

'Damn cat! I'm gonna skin his ass.'

Instead of resisting the bolt's pull, he jumps backwards towards it, using the gravitational pull to slingshot himself over and away from it.

He turns his body around to see he's headed right for Shard. So, he cuts his palm with his knife to get some blood on it and throws it at Shard. Then readies Joyeuse and prepares to strike from above.

((OOC What's with you two and ice? Razz ))
Ok, two projectiles, and Tabby's gonna fire, how can I use my position to get an advantage?
And in that instant, Shard had an idea.
He twirled Shrapnel around, leaving a dent in the floor before using it to swat the blood-tipped knife in Nero's general direction. Then spinning himself a little, he emptied Shrapnel's dust canister to pull up a bit of the floor and use it as a barrier between him and Nero's sniper shots... A barrier Roy was going to be on the wrong side of. However, due to his predicament of having he leg covered in ice, the spin set him off gravity. He fell and cracked his head into the floor, disorienting him. Checking his head, Shard found that the back of his head was bleeding. Not heavily, but losing blood from the head is never good.

As Roy begins to swoop down, a wall of rock comes up to meet him, raising him higher.

*PING* *PING*

The rounds from Nero struck the rising rock wall beneath him. Roy knew what was next, it was just like his ice knives. He jumps forward and off the rock wall in order to avoid the freeze-over.

Clearing the wall, and landing on the other side, Roy turns, spits down at Shard's head wound and strikes with Joyeuse.

Shard groans as he see's the blurry bastard arc over the bit of the floor he tore up.
Ugh, why won't this asshole just take a hit?
Vision blurry and motor control a little off, things were going to have change pace if Shard was going to catch a break.
Shard, guessing that Roy didn't make his way over the wall for a friendly cup of tea, rolled to the side to try and avoid whatever attack was coming at him.
As Roy's spit splatted on the floor near him, Shard caught a whiff of something that WASN'T recycled water.
Smells like... Scorpion venom?
While analyzing the glob of disrespect that he had narrowly avoided, Shard was caught off guard by Roy's second attack.
On the plus side, the attack didn't hit him, however on the downside, it HAD sunk into his cloak.
"YOU BASTAAAAARD!" Shard yelled.
Shard raised his hand with the Armbrust on it and swung a punch towards Roy's gut.
Upon connecting, he would empty the remaining six rounds from the cartridge.
If Roy dodged, he would take aim and do the same thing.

Roy's slash seemed to have been as effective against Shard's cloak as it would be against chain-mail. But there was no time to think about it now, Roy could see Shard raising his arm with his wrist-mounted dart-gun. He quickly intercepts Shard at the wrist as he fires off rounds but his side is met with a hook from Shard. Unfortunately for Roy, Shard was a level above him in strength causing him to slowly lose out and that blow to the side wasn't helping. But Roy wasn't so weak that he couldn't cause the shots to miss...most of them. As the 5th shot fires out of Artbrust, Roy is overpowered, and the 6th shot manages to graze his side, slicing through his tunic, and out the back of his cloak, leaving a hole outlined in Roy's blood and a bit of spatter.

The wound isn't deep enough to do any critical damage, but, it did hurt. Nonetheless, he realizes that he can't in terms of strength, here. He breaks his grip on Shard's wrist and takes a step backward pulling Joyeuse from Shard's cloak. Shard quickly tries to escape, but Roy removes his cloak and throws it at Shard (like a net). As his cloak soars through the air, he notices the hole and the red stain and immediately becomes engraged. He ducks low, and like a bull drawn to a red target, thrusts Joyeuse, point-first, forward with a deep fencer's lunge into the bloodied perforation hoping to stick Shard on the other side.

While Roy had thrown his cloak to try and trip Shard, it wasn't necessary. He was still off from the hit in the back of the head, and tripped without any help from Roy. However, this meant that Roy's attack would miss, and Roy may even trip over Shard.

As Roy thrust his sword and drew it back, he felt no feedback. Something was wrong. There's no way he'd be fast enough to dodge it! But as the cloak sunk to the ground he'd realized the large outline of a body beneath it begin to take shape. Roy took a step to the side, jumped up, and attempts to finish off Shard with a downward stab, gripping the hilt with both hands and putting his entire body weight behind Joyeuse's blade-point as he descended.
