Toshiko rubbed the back of her neck softly, thinking on these Regalia. Her brain moved at about the speed of light sometimes, especially when she got to really extreme amounts thinking. She racked her brain on the subject of these objects before she sighed and then looked towards the device that was clearly unnatural. Toshiko watched as the device changed from a harmless looking pocket watch to a sword in merely moments. The girl blinked in amazement. Sure, technology could accomplish much, but, this was more than just simple technology or some gimmick or power; it was something far more. Toshiko grinned for a moment before she let the grin fade, simply looking at the device until it faded back to what it normally was; a pocket watch. Toshiko looked at Ghislain for a little bit longer before she sighed softly.
"I see... Yeah, I have never heard of them before; these Regalia. Also, I wouldn't mind learning more fighting forms... Knowing just martial arts alone can be limiting at times. So, please do teach me; and Ritsuko as well if she wants training. Just saying. A-Also... do you think I could get a Regalia if possible?"
Toshiko was looking at Ghislain with a look of determination; her eyes gazing into Ghislain's own. She was looking for answers, training; especially what these Regalia were. It was extremely hard to tell what all Toshiko was looking for, but, she stared to understand what she was looking for. To boil it down to simplicity, it was power. However, in more complicated terms; it was far more than just simply the craving for power. What may it be then? The want to protect; that's what she was all about after all. Toshiko wanted to protect those she cared for; and power seemed to be the only way to do it in situations like these. Toshiko let a soft sigh escape her lips as she let her gaze fall to the ground momentarily.
However, she soon noticed that Ghislain was showing her something. She looked back up in nearly an instant and watched as Ghislain basically caused an uncountable number of reishi bullets, of a sort, to be manipulated and to move how he wished. Toshiko stared at this in amazement, knowing that she could control the reishi shots used by her Gatling gun and railgun, but, she didn't know that it was possible to do it on a scale this large. She swallowed softly as they faded before looking to Ghislain. She bowed her head slightly, put her right hand, balled in a fist, to the ground; knuckles touching the sand. She looked down still and made only one request.

Ritsuko took a closer look at Ghislans pocket watch as she could hear something growl almost like a dog, but she just shrugged it off assuming it was all in her head. She never knew regalia could have names, hell even take on different forms; she just assumed it was another weapon used to help quincies in battle. However based on what Ghislan was saying its safe to assume it's similar to a zanpaktou spirt that shinigami have within their zanpaktou's; companions who work together to achieve a common goal.
Ritsuko watched closely as ghislan demonstarted his reishi manipulation; seeing two tips of reishi flowing within the edge of his fingers. As a dark figure appeared before ghislan but he didn't show any signs of fear or worry, actually it was the complete opposite he immediately cut the figure with his fingers.
Learning new fighting styles is always a must for me, sure i know a few fighting styles such as boxing and wrestling but those aren't going to really help her out if she's fighting against other supernatural beings. She wanted to learn whatever was avaliable. Words couldn't explain what the hell ritsuko has witness in front of her very eyes, moving a bullet mid-air making it do tricks like a animal.
Ghislan continued as he demonstrated more of his unique abilities to both ritsuko and Toshiko, almost like the bullets were asteroids or planets orbiting around the sun or in this case ghislan.
Ritsuko couldn't help but applaud to it, after all it did look pretty amazing and made her question whether or not she'd be capable of at least learning the baiscs of reishi manipulation.
She wanted to learn this technique as well, albiet her sniper rifle is a bit different but it's safe to assume with enough practice she could also fire countless bullets with complete control.
"I'd like to recieve training as well Mr.Ghislan!" Ritsuko said kneeling on one foot
Toshiko looked at Ghislain and then towards the necklaces. For some reason, one of them called to her as if it was meant for her or something; a feeling that truly confused Toshiko. Toshiko slowly reached for one of the necklaces, her hand floating under the one that had a gem charm on the end; the gem seemingly having multiple colors. She slowly wrapped her fingers around the necklace and took it slowly, staring at the gem before sparks emitted from the gem and necklace. Toshiko jumped a little in surprise as it continued to spark. After a few more sparks burst from the necklace, it shifted into a Katana, then a traditional Japanese bow, and then back to a necklace. This alone left Toshiko blinking in amazement. She swallowed softly and put the necklace around her neck, the charm of it sticking out some from under her scarf. Toshiko bowed her head to Ghislain as thanks before she thought on some things.
Toshiko sighed softly as she listened to Ghislain. It was entirely possible for Vandrenreich to live in harmony with others since they weren't evil; the org was not to be aligned with those like Shadowfall or Monsuta. Toshiko let out a soft sigh as she watched Ghislain speak, simply taking in his words with ease before she finally got the chance to speak since he was done speaking. She looked him directly in the eyes and sighed softly.
"Well... I would like to learn everything I can, but, hand to hand combat would be nice; I do want to learn how to use my new Regalia. Which, I do thank you for, Ghislain. But, please teach me as much as you can; especially when it comes to using an actual bow... It seems like my Regalia can take on the form of a sword and a bow..."
Toshiko rubbed the back of her head, a small blush crossing her face since it was true that Toshiko had NEVER used a bow in her life; she had no need to. Toshiko never had an actual bow weapon, she just had her Gatling gun; and that thing was easy to fire. But she had never used a bow, it was likely the one weapon she was unfamiliar with when it came to the training she obtained when she was younger. Martial Arts? Sure. Swordplay? Eyup. However, she never really practiced when it came to shooting bows. So, she was a bit at a loss there. So, with a bow, Toshiko again requested for Ghislain to guide her with his teaching; and hopefully she would excel rather well.
"I understand that you needed to leave the Vandenreich to not hurt us; but I ask you to help me. And Ritsuko here. Train us, please, train me in whatever way you can; I really do wish to learn what I can. That, and I really do want to be able to protect what is precious to me."

Ritsuko looked at one of the bracelets appearing right in front of her, she couldn't make it out but it sounded like a golden eagle cawing as it soars across the sky looking for the right person to obtain it's glorious power. Ritsuko was obviously the one perfect for this Regalia,it somehow reminded her of herself in a way. Perhaps it was the eagles amazing tenacity and cunning or maybe how it finds it's prey. Whatever the case ritsuko grabbed the bracelet and attached in onto her right arm The bracelet itself stood out from the rest of her clothing due to it's wavy design; however it changed too a solid white indicating that she was feeling a bit shocked. Whatever the case Ritsuko bowed to Ghislain as a token of her gratitude and as respect for him as a person.
Ritsuko was looking at her new Regalia and noticed that when she touched it; the bracelet changed into a crossbow, the crossbow itself also had a wavy design and it somehow changed color to simulate the enviorment around her. Since they were on the beach it camoflauged with the dand around them. Ritsuko was obviously surpised about this making a woah sound.
"Looks like my Regalia takes form if a crossbow, interesting"
Ritsuko looked in utter curiosity as to what she could use this weapon for, perhaps combining this with her Ghillie suit would make this a more versatile weapon in mid range combat.
She's mostly used to using a sniper rifle a deadly weapon that has the ability to eliminate her targets from afar while also seeing thier bodies plop on the ground as a bullet comes in and out of their heads. Although ritsuko is used to her sniper rifle she is willing to learn how to use the crossbow, sure it might not be able to kill targets from long ranges but it will prove useful if she's forced to fight mid-range.
Ritsuko was ready to begin her training with Toshiko and the might Ghislan, it's going to take awhile for her regalia to recognize her as the proper owner but it'll be a great achievement once she does; but for now it's time for some training which she was eager to do.
