//I forgot I needed to do this but I remembered within a week with no reminders so who's the real winner
//tw for violence ofc

They hadn't gotten any volunteers to host this battle training which... Fair enough. If they were asked to do something, that anyone else could volunteer to do, that would get done regardless of who volunteered, well they wouldn't do it either. And honestly, considering how long they'd been leading this place, they were probably overdue for another battle training. It had been what, six months? They'd only done one so far. Well, time to change that.

They set up on the beach like last time, but this time there weren't tables upon tables of weapons. No, this would focus on their favorite kind of fighting: up close, personal, and dirty. That sounded wrong out of context. Anyway. "Alright, troops, gather around. Time to get some bruises." They were already in possession of a scattering of small bruises, but those were from something very different.

— sparring at the badlands, he’d gotten his fair share of bruises. then again, it at least beat the tooth-and-nail, legitimate fights that happened almost daily at the clearwaters. sure, everybody there had been ‘united’ in a sense, but they also all had been fighting for who was the best of the best, a cut-throat mentality of being on top. yeah, he preferred the badlands, where he could just beat the shit out of someone after they both agreed to it. fair enough.

strolling closer towards cat on the beach, he watched them closely before absently turning his gaze around. where the hell were the weapons? part of him wanted to scowl at the thought of having to use just fists. i mean, it wasn’t his fault if his opponent brought only fists to a knife fight. still, he simply pressed his lips into a thin line, crossing his arms over his chest.

— Lucerne didn't fight. Well - actually - if he were to be more accurate in the phrase, Lucerne couldn't fight. Any somewhat impressive acts he had done in the past to fight others off had merely been reflex actions and quick-thinking instincts; never had anything he'd done in combat been premeditated for if it had been then maybe he would've executed it a little bit better. Most had been hand-to-hand combat. He'd pushed somebody once. Pistol-whipped another person before fleeing...

Basically, all Lucerne knew was how to escape.

Surprisingly, despite the apparent lack of willingness to participate in any conflict, he found himself approaching the battle training, stopping by Cat's side, his hands comfortably behind his back. "Just here to observe... In case bruises turn into bloodied noses." He commented nonchalantly before dropping a heavy-sounding rucksack on the floor. Full of medical supplies, all oh-so disorganized in true Lucerne fashion.

Fighting was one thing Salem was confident in; though he wore the scars of many battles lost, he didn't wear the scars of many battles won which was a victory in his opinion. Though he couldn't imagine fistfighting in his current condition was... Wise.

Still, the man cracked his knuckles and approached. He stuck his tongue out slightly at Cat, smiling playfully as he observed the leader. "What kinds of bruises, Captain?" Salem asked, humor lacing his tone. He wasn't really flirting, he was moreso just trying to alleviate the weight in his chest that told him he was making a mistake by trying hand-to-hand combat after he'd lost two fingers not a week ago.

He stretched his arms over his head, dropping his smile in favor of yawning. He'd been napping, so what? He was still getting used to life not being incredibly boring eighty percent of the time.

Addy was the first to arrive; they couldn't really say that they were surprised, considering he tended to show up at most of these things. He'd gotten himself into some shit at Mike's, hadn't he? This oughta be good. Cat gave the officer a nod, not launching into anything just yet. Lucerne approached too, though he was only there in case someone got hurt. Probably good; Cat wasn't one to hold back. He, too, got a nod.

Then came Salem. "What kinds of bruises, Captain?" The words, combined with his tone that did indeed come across as somewhat flirty... They gave him a look before tugging back their collar and making a vain attempt to see their neck, which they knew quite well would be covered in bruises. "That obvious, huh?" They dropped their collar back into place. "Not those kinds, so forget anything you mighta been thinking."

//should I probably try to write another paragraph w Cat starting the training? Yes but I can barley keep my eyes open rn so no

Salem blinked as Cat examined themselves, and then burst out into laughter. He'd expected the leader to maybe brush it off, or maybe be into it, but he hadn't really been expecting that. Maybe Catalyst wasn't so bad; they were at least fun to tease.

Salem smiled, feeling a bit less tense now. "Well, I guess the fun kind of training will come later." Salem commented lightly, still continuing to stretch for what time he had before the training started. He didn't want to pull anything, and the movement gave him something to do.

"Well, I guess the fun kind of training will come later." "Yeah, for me maybe" he commented as he arrived, a lit joint between his lips and smoke escaping from his mouth as he spoke. His hands hid in his pockets as he joined those showing up for battle training, his choice weapon of a tomahawk on him as well. What would the point be of showing up without his weapon, hm? "So, training, huh? Looks more like standing around" he teased with a grin, taking his joint from his lips and holding it between his fingers.

"What part of forget it did you not get?" They asked, frowning at Salem. Then Gav arrived, as if he could sense the flirtation directed at his significant other. They opened their mouth to say something, then thought better of it. Then, of course, he made a comment about how they were all standing around and distinctly not training. They rolled their eyes. "God forbid I wait for people to gather and strike up a conversation."

They probably should actually kick this thing into gear, though. They glanced around, raising their eyebrow. "So... more bark than bite, sideline medic, pinkie-less, and high. A baseline knowledge is probably too much to ask for, so we'll start with one of you. Who's up first?"

— okay… what the fuck was even going on. he watched as gavril strolled on over, as salem made some playfully flirtatious comments. it was amusing as hell, that was for sure, but if what they were talking about was their idea of fighting… count him the fuck out. it seemed like they were finally on the task of starting this combat training and - with a not-so-subtle middle finger at that ‘more bark than bite’ comment - he was ready to get this started.
 
more bark than bite… he’d fuckin’ show him. he glanced around for a moment before stepping forward with a shrug of his shoulders. “sure, i’ll go.”

Salem glanced at the arriving person, noticing immediately the joint in the other man's mouth and taking in the relaxed way he addressed Catalyst, and brushed off Salem's joking words. He didn't really- get that, but he'd drop it. He shot a lazy grin at Catalyst as he got scolded, and let that avenue of conversation die once and for all.

"I'm defined by more than just my injuries, captain." Salem quipped, but he didn't put any real bite into it. It just echoed his own nervousness surrounding the training. He didn't even comment on the baseline knowledge part, holding back for now,

"I'm fine with taking seconds." Salem said, stepping back to give them some room before sitting down on the ground to watch; he wasn't just going to stand awkwardly the entire time.

Cat smirked as Addy volunteered; sure enough their words were enough to provoke him into accepting their challenge. That had been part of why they'd said that, though the other reason had been to point out the weaknesses (though his hadn't been so much a weakness as the best they could think of in the moment) and how there was no blanket thing they could start with.

As they stepped back away from the crowd, they glanced over at Salem. "Have you fought with your hands fucked up?" They inquired, smirking even more when he said he'd go second. They didn't dwell on that, though, and within moments they were turning back to Addy. "Let's see your stance."

— a smirk was all addy needed to know that he’d completely fallen right where cat wanted him. fuckin’ bitchass. not that he was complaining. he doubted anybody else would be as ready to volunteer, save for salem - because like hell would lucerne actively volunteer in battle training.
 
his stance? he couldn’t help but huff out a breath at that one - how could people not even know how to stand when fighting? what were they doing, fuckin’ picking at dandelions instead of learning how to defend themselves? … maybe people just didn’t need to learn how to since they hadn’t been in a cutthroat gang for a majority of their life.
 
best way he’d learned over the years was a more boxing stance - not too wide, not too short. not too stiff and not too loose either. hands up and open, relaxed - just comfortable enough to where he felt like he could fuck someone up. because, his personal opinion, he absolutely could fuck someone up.

They were confident. What could they say? They'd been in countless fights over the years, many won, many lost. They weren't too worried about losing here, but even if they did, so what? Cat had proved their mettle time and time again, and everyone but Salem here knew it. If he was foolish enough to doubt them, he'd be corrected soon enough. Still, getting their ass kicked when they were meant to be teaching would not be a good look for them.

Their own stance wasn't unlike his; their strategy usually being to get in quick and hit hard. End the fight before it had a chance to start. Though, if you took a look at all the various scars they'd collected over the years, you might wonder how successful that was. Since they were still standing there, they'd say successful enough.

Cat gave Addy a tight nod. "Should I go easy on you?" They asked, tone slightly mocking. Hey, when it came to this particular man, trash talking was just how they communicated.

⇥ Catalyst is 6'2" tall; they possess a lean and muscular body, one that has a variety of old scars adorning it. One of the easiest to notice is one that stretches down their right cheek. While not a scar, one very notable marking on their chest is the "BL" brand. They have two piercings, one in their tongue and the other in the cartilage of their left ear. They typically dress in dark colors (favoring jackets with some sort of writing on the back), and their hair is black.

⇥ Catalyst is ambitious, with the cunning and ruthlessness to reach their goals by any means necessary. They can be brutal when they feel it is needed, however when it's not they won't bother. They tend to be rather aloof and apathetic to most things and people, with some very rare exceptions. Provided those around them don't cross a few specific lines, they're content to leave them be, though they've been known to take an interest in some people, which seldom has a positive end for whoever their interest is in. They can be manipulative, and will often encourage people to make bad decisions. Those that stick by them will be rewarded, but those that do not will be cast out, as they've been outcast for their entire life and have learned to appreciate loyalty wherever they can find it. Even during the most stressful of situations, they usually keep a firm grip on their temper and keep their calm, though when they do snap and lose their temper, it is uncontrollable. They're remarkably observant, often able to deign much from subtle clues in what people say, how they say it and how they act.

— catalyst and addy both were fairly good fighters, the redhead would easily boast. it wasn’t like it took a rocket scientist to figure that shit out, though. they both could kick some major fuckin’ ass- so it wasn’t like his ego was going to hurt too much if catalyst ended up winning this one. there’d always be a next time. or a time after that. still didn’t mean he was going to take it easy on the leader.
 
“nah,” a simple remark, followed by a small tilt of his head. “it’d make kicking your ass too easy.” they were both complete assholes to each other, addy knew that - but at least they were the kind of assholes that at least knew how to poke fun with one another. "y'gonna throw the first punch or what?"

They had an ego. That was undeniable, but it wasn't one that was easily damaged. Losing this fight, if that happened, wouldn't bruise their pride or embarrass them. Shit happened, and they accepted that. Did they want to lose? Of course not, they were supposed to be leading a battle training, and losing wouldn't reflect well on them. Oh fucking well.

Cat didn't say anything else, just feigned right before attempting to strike Addy on the left. One of the advantages in fights was that they were ambidextrous; they could use either hand and be just as effective.

//wow this is real bad
