He had never known such conflict. On one hand, this was an important moment for him. Not because he really cared about the Vanguard, there were not enough twenty first century memes remaining to describe his level of apathy toward the organization as a whole. However it was a test for him. He had constructed numerous kill squads out of Sugiurans, but they were all trained military men who were trained, since birth, to obey and revere every word that came out of his mouth. Creating a concerted unit out of soldiers like that was not difficult, molding clay was only difficult when it was dry. What was going to be difficult was to teach through the egos of the Vanguard, to assert his dominance in a way that did not shut down their strengths. He found humans difficult. Not complicated, they were incredibly simple creatures, no what he found difficult was that they were idiots. They very rarely did the rational thing, they very rarely did the intelligent thing, they were difficult to control simply because at any given moment they could immediately turn on a dime and do something that was the complete antithesis to what their own objective was. Kamui found that even extended to the people dedicated to protecting them, the Vanguard. Even still, he was beginning to realize why his father never aligned himself with them. They were directionless despite fashioning themselves as a militant organization and he needed to look no farther than his own personal pet project, Elysia, to see that...thankfully he managed to successfully impregnate her without much complication. The Vanguard were a people of contradictions. They fashioned themselves as a militant organization, but still clung to notions such as self-defense, righteousness, purity...all things that had no place on a battlefield. Kamui had no interest in teaching them the reality of the world, their delusions were useful, but he knew Sagumi was not that naive, as much as he hated the man he knew what war was. He would not take advantage of these people...which was a shame for them. Kamui had no such reservations.
Three names had been chosen. Based solely on his previous predilections, it wasn't much of a stretch to assume Kamui had picked them at random and for the most part...he did. Kamui did not do much research on any of the candidates selected for this little squad. He had been given full discretion in the selection process but his own criteria had, in and of itself, limited the pool of potential candidates. He did not want anyone "too" strong, trademark twenty whatever the hell, and that in and of itself did sort of lop off most of the interesting personnel. Then, on top of that, he couldn't select anyone who was too weak either. Tactics could take one rather far, but even the best laid plan can fail and unless that best laid plan succeeds, you weren't going to kill an elephant with a spoon. With that metaphor in mind, Kamui had attacked the list of eligible applicants and...got bored, quickly. Consequently he seemed to simply start picking people by default. He assumed that was how most people did it anyway. The first selection was obvious. Ash Iramasha, Azure's offspring. It wasn't necessarily because Kamui was especially interested in Ash, he was far too megalomanic to actually appreciate anything that wasn't an attractive woman, but he DID happen to be the son of the vaunted leader of the Vanguard. Including him in the team put him directly under Kamui, which Azure could see as either a complimentary gesture, earning Kamui brownie points...or a threat, earning Kamui enmity. In either situation, Kamui could spin it. Then was Desmond Hayden...outside of what must have been a confusing childhood growing up with two first names, Kamui had selected him somewhat out of obligation. The man was normally not what Kamui would have been interested in, he was very much a matter over mind kind of individual and was quite full of himself from what little Kamui had heard, but assumptions were dangerous even for Kamui and the man HAD ascended quite quickly in multiple areas. Then, the third, Kamui had picked entirely randomly out of a hat, his only qualification being that she was a girl...he didn't know what he'd do with himself if he was surrounded by so many unappealing things for so long.
And so he sat, waiting...always waiting. If he had to classify a distinct weakness for himself it was his sense of patience. The boy rhythmically tapped the tip of his umbrella against his knee as his eyes scanned the room around him. It was an empty room, bigger this time thankfully, roughly about a hundred meters long and forty meters wide, definitely enough room to play around with and lining the upper walls of their fifteen meter high room was a terrace. Perhaps the Vanguard used this as a testing ground with the terrace as the observatory grounds. That did tend to make the most sense. Kamui was more than open to an audience of course, he very much appreciated the spotlight and he did intend to make the games with the children to be enjoyable.

The boy had found himself... Wandering about. Looking around from room to room, stepping through the halls of the Vanguard Base he had spent most of his life in. Previously, he had obtained a letter that seemed to contain information for him. Mainly regarding something... Special he was invited to intend. The thought of something he was being chosen for obviously excited him, and added a hop to his step. In the same outfit as always, black dress with hair curled slightly, flowing down just past his shoulders with a large smile upon his lips. Seemingly innocent eyes glancing about despite being stained with the horrors of his powers.
Soon, the door was found, and his knuckles were brought up, gently rapping against the door to the room as he spoke out. High pitched voice making it fairly difficult to ascertain his true gender. But with Azure as his father, it must have made some sense he'd inherit one power that he honestly liked using quite often. It added a fun change of pace to many things and let him try out quite a few things. Idle thoughts were soon pushed asides as he waited for an answer, someone saying to come in.

Tōki, or Zero as she liked to call herself, skipped, not walked, down the halls of the underground base stationed in Sukai Karakura. It was the first time she had graced the halls of this particular Vanguard base and she already had an opinion of the place. What was that? Well, she didn’t think the place was interesting in the slightest and it could definitely use a pop of colour here and there - such as pastel blue or pink - but she wasn’t there to critique the base’s appearance. Oh no, this humming fifteen-year-old that was five foot one and ninety-four pounds was there to greet some person who had requested her presence. She wasn’t sure what the name of the person though she was pretty sure it was written down on some piece of paper she had thrown away if it was ever written, but it wasn’t like that really mattered. Besides, she was heading to the meeting spot arranged by this mysterious person - she didn’t know if they was a male, female, or something else - and would find out there, though they would also found out that she was horrible at remembering names.
She hoped whomever it was that waited for her was an interesting person for she hadn’t come to be bored out of her mind. If she wished to do something devoid of fun she would take her happy self to a library - the absolute worse place for an easily bored child to be. - though it wasn’t like she could waltz into one within her neighborhood - she was sort of banned for life after an incident that left the place an utter mess and several books in a unsalvageable state. So, she sincerely hoped she didn’t get bored and she wouldn’t hold herself responsible for any damage done to the base if that were to happen.
Zero paused for a moment, a grin spreading across her face as she thought of the various things she could do within the base. Her thoughts devilish enough that it got a snickered out of the girl. Yet, she resisted the urge to do just that, interlocking her fingers behind her back for safety reasons before skipping around the corner. She had intentions of humming a rather merry tune to herself, but that plan was chucked aside in favor of inspecting the lone figure that stood before a door. She immediately assumed the person was female given how they were dressed, but looks could be deceiving. She skipped towards the supposed female, halting just about five feet away from them, a distance she deemed perfect for an introduction.
“Hello. Waiting for someone?” She tilted her head to the side, her eyes wandering over to the closed door. If she had arrived first, she would’ve simply barged in with a warm greeting on her tongue, but she refrained from doing that since the female before her had arrived first - she should get the honor of flinging open the door.

So this is how his day would be spent, invited to something ‘special.
In all his days of being apart of the vanguard Hayden had never been called down to participate in something something special, the closest he had ever been was the personal training Azure gave him follow by his promotion to his current position. While both had proved to be something he was proud of (one more than the other) he actually never thought much about it. His power was growing at such a high rate that if he kept this up he might even be in charge of the whole initiative sooner or later. He felt with the constant growth in his wisdom followed by his improving body and the friendships he was cultivating might lead to some worth while; perhaps this team would be what he was looking forward to.
As he walked down the hallways in his black shinigami robes, where the Gotei badge should have been instead laid a sown in Vanguard badge as if to indicate where his loyalty lay. The area his sleeves should be connected was torn and jagged most likely ripped off by him to less restrict his explosive yet smooth fighting style. Every since he had first started developing his style he found himself taking inspiration from many sword styles and martial arts, perhaps he may write a book about it one day. When it came to fighting and controlling his body his mind took the ideology of mind over matter to a new level, being in complete control of his body from his muscle usage to growing his hair- a neat trick in combat. Every day he was getting a bit sharper mentally and physically, soon he would reach that pinnacle of power where he could bring revenge upon Wolf. Revenge upon the man who forever took any hope of a normal life.
"Gonna be a interesting day."
As he muttered to himself, he turned a corner to see two people at the door to the office already. He cleared his throat lifting up his burly arm to give a wave to both of them, one he recognized as Azure's... Offspring name Ash. However, the other girl he had no idea who they were that included seeing them in his section of the Vanguard. None the less they might be from somewhere else or simply new in which case he would give them a nod as he approached to them stopping a safe distance away to be comfortable for all three off them.
"Ash, it's good to see you today- did you get called here too?" He inquired with a pretty normal conversation tone, he saw himself and the Iramasha as friendly associates to some degree. Meanwhile he would look over to the new person with a slight smile but a bit tired, be it from work or training.
"Evening, I'm Desmond Hayden; third seat of the Initiative- Who would you be?" He questioned as he stood between the two to them. His stance rather loose but in the trained eye of a warrior perhaps even someone with good focus they would see his body in select areas tense to reach up to grab his Zanpakutō from his back if he needed to. It was trained reflexes at this point and those type of things that came from two lifetimes spent in war and bloodshed. Despite the normal facade Hayden has one must be mindful this man spent not one but two life times fighting for wars that he knew would always have the same outcome. He was no child to war but for the sake of this world he choose to believe that someone had to do the right thing in this dark world, if no one would then he would not because he desired fame or glory but because it was simply right. Hayden was a man of complex knots and wires, refusing to be meek but at the same time able to nod his head to his surprior because that's what a soldier did.
"I suppose we should head in, yes?"
With those words he would step past them to open the doors to the training room, stepping inside to see who just requested all their presence. Once inside he'd look over to the man with a umbrella, either assuming it was a accessory or a weapon- this was Karakura and you never knew who you could meet. Even inside the supposed safest place within the world, so he lifted his hand offering it to the man after he walked to the man, intending to introduce myself. Which turned out to quite a walk, twenty or so meters which would give the man time to size up his More Duck.
When Hayden walked over to the male he walked with a purpose, resolve even for this simple thing. It spoke volumes to those who could decode what that meant, but he also had the lax should back appearance that demanded authority in its self. It was the More Duck of a general, a warrior that has seen battle but also knows wisdom that comes from not only battle but two life's of experience. While obtaining and striving for inner peace wasn't Hayden main goal in some extent from really examining his walk you'd find he had enough to walk freely unopposed in his goals and choices.
"Hello, I'm Hayden as you already know- I don't think I've ever met you." He stated and if the man was to shake his hand he would offer a firm hand shake, not threatening but rather more warm with little to no malice intent. It seemed he was willing to be kind to a stranger. With these actions began to meeting of the strange man and the three of them.

What the actual bloody hell? Kamui's sensory abilities were most definitely not his greatest strength, but even he could assess the energy signatures gathering outside his door...which was in and of itself the chief problem. Why the hell were they sitting outside his door? Did humans just not understand how doors worked? Were they too complicated for them? It was expected of course, Deoxyribo Nucleic Acid degrades over time and humans had been inbreeding for a long time since they had made the revolutionary development of the door knob, perhaps their capacity for intelligence had simply degraded so far that a circle was a mind blowing concept. It WAS a scientifically sound theory if not for the fact that such a degradation would take considerably more time than had actually elapsed, but Kamui certainly wasn't going to let facts interfere with his agitation. That wasn't any fun. The man had found himself sitting on the floor of the massive room, which was most definitely not an office, casually watching the door as his finger impatiently tapped at his chin and the umbrella casually bounced off the padded floor. Patience was not at all his virtue, and as he waited when one, then two, then finally the third reached the door and decidedly did not utilize the door, Kamui's lip twitched in annoyance.
Thankfully, they, or at least one of them, mustered up the mechanical cognizance to catch up in knob technology. Truly a revolutionary day for all of mankind. Funnily enough, it wasn't actually the human that figured out how to open the door. An internal sigh went through Kamui as the door opened in front of him. The first one to step through was honestly the one he expected to. Not necessarily because Kamui expected him to be the predominant Vanguard door opener, but mostly because he was the one that Kamui's dossier had led him to believe was the most confident, confidence bordering on arrogance. Kamui enjoyed that confidence, not only was it easy to manipulate, it was also rather fun to poke at. He continued to make it even more amusing when he decided the proper response to this situation was to saunter in to the room like he owned the place. Kamui's head tilted curiously to the side as Hayden made his way toward him, blinking intermittently in confusion. Kamui's energy was often difficult to truly get a read on because of his rather unique biology, but even still anyone could tell that Kamui was not the kind of being that should be approached so casually, yet Hayden didn't seem to care much about that. It displayed either an impressive amount of confidence or, and the more likely scenario being, it showed an impressive amount of idiocy.
Kamui leaned gently on his buttocks, stretching his neck around Hayden's massive frame to look at the two figures still remaining at the door, his eyes lingering for a moment on the spot just outside the door itself. They both looked like women but, unfortunately, Kamui was informed of the rather unfortunate name of the team's resident Briget. Kamui wasn't really sure how he was possibly going to recover from such travesty if truth were to be told. A man should not look prettier than some of the considerable amount of women Kamui had known. Kamui's face would even look rather crestfallen at the thought, he was truly rather depressed at the thought. Once Kamui had learned that young Ash was in fact Azure's son and not his daughter, he had actually grown far less interested in the idea of their little hit squad, yet he was already committed and Ash was too valuable to let go as opposed to finding a more attractive, genitally, replacement. So for now he'd simply have to deal with it. That was when he saw the other one...and if he were a cartoon character his heart would have leaped out of his chest. Though, given his abilities he probably could have accomplished that. Mid gait for Hayden these thoughts flew through Kamui's head. Could he arrange his body in order to properly imitate bugs bunny? The look of intense contemplation on his face would undoubtedly be misconstrued for something more serious or, at the very least, real by the people potentially looking at him, but Kamui could not even begin to care.
Hayden did finally reach him though and Kamui had to at least pretend to care about anyone in the area but Toki. As Hayden's massive hand extended down to Kamui, the red haired boy's eyes shifted back toward him, a playful grin on his face. Kamui extended his hand up to him, not deigning to pull himself from the ground to do so, and shook the massive palm with his rather more diminutive one. Though both in body language and in facial expression, Kamui was quite clearly completely unphased by Hayden's strut in to the room. It was almost as if the Red-Haired man didn't even notice, contrary to the reality of the situation. Hayden then introduced himself in, as he was aware, a pointless gesture but Kamui understood the etiquette involved in sharing it, he did not want to expect Kamui to reveal his identity without first offering his and Kamui had no issue reciprocating.
"Kamui Cruor, Crown Prince of the Northern Sugiuran Kingdom, Liaison to the Vanguard and for the next few months, your friendly neighborhood commanding officer."
He continued to look up at him with the warm, almost childlike smile that had adorned his face for the entirety of the time they had been in the room. It wasn't a threatening smile, but it most definitely was an assertive one. Regardless of the confidence he exuded, Kamui, despite his playfully fueled word choice, very much expected to be treated like their commanding officer and if they were wise, they'd heed that directive. If not to avoid the consequences of angering a being like Kamui, than simply for their own benefit. Then, without giving Hayden a real chance to react, Kamui was suddenly gone. To the untrained eye, one might simply believe Kamui was inordinately and obnoxiously fast...which in and of itself was not inaccurate, he was inordinately and obnoxiously fast, but that was simply not the kind of movement he had exhibited. The other two might be able to pick up on it, but the one who should be able to notice for sure was Hayden. Even at extreme speeds, Hayden would have been able to feel Kamui's hand slipping from his own. Instead, there'd be nothing of the sort. Kamui would simply be there one moment, receiving that firm handshake, and then the next Hayden's hand would be closing on nothing but itself. In less time than it took to blink, Kamui had moved from his seated position to right before the doorway, his inquisitive eyes scanning over the other two squad members.
"You must be Ash then and you..."
Kamui's hand held the door frame as he swung his body around until he was face to face with Toki, a warm yet decidedly devious grin on his face. Toki was a relative unknown. Hayden had a considerable amount of documentation on him and just being around him for a few moments was enough to tell just how much turmoil his body was in and Ash was the son of Azure, even if it was just hearsay there was plenty of details that Kamui could put together on the spawn of their illustrious leader. Toki however was the unknown. Short of a short dossier on her psychological status, something that if you spent thirty seconds looking at her you know was inconclusive at best and outright misdiagnosed at worst, Kamui had nothing to really go on. However, he immediately felt a sort of kinship with her that extended beyond his desire for more intimate activities. He had nothing to base it on, but Kamui just felt deep within his soul, gut, and other organs that he was going to enjoy this girl.
Kamui pivoted on his foot and pushed back in to the rather open training ground, motioning behind him toward the other two to follow his lead and step in to the room. He wasted little time in making his way back toward the center of the room, turning his attention rather cavalierly back over his shoulder as he walked past Hayden to make sure the other had followed him back in to the room before he shed light on what exactly they were here for, plopping himself back down on the floor and holding his now rather visibly ornate umbrella out in front of him, once again flashing that soft smile toward his charges.
"I've been tasked with putting together an "Elite" team by our beloved leader, you all have been chosen for various reasons. You will be the Vanguard of the Vanguard, which doubles as a way to confuse your opposition to no end, and you will also serve as a form of special operations squad, handling situations that require a smaller unit without that whole cumbersome battalion thing. We're going to first start with a history lesson, a human one. I'm aware not all of you are human but you're charged with protecting them so we might as well, focus on them. How did a small, powerless, human manage to kill a mighty creature like the now extinct Wooly Mammoth. Feel free to repeat someone else's answer if you agree with them"

The person of questionable gender seemed to cheer up once seeing someone new walk by. Lips curling upwards into a smile as they stood up tall, hand quickly raised to wave towards the girl. She seemed nice enough, and not someone who'd be especially rude to others. "Hi there! Yeah, I'm waiting for someone to say come in, I just knocked a few moments ago." The answer seemed fair enough for her, as she did another nod as if affirming that was indeed what she did. Soon, her body gently leaned against the wall as she relaxed. "Oh! It's also nice to meet you! I'm Ash! I've been here for a long while and I haven't seen you around, so I guess you're new. Welcome!"
Soon, her eyes trailed over to a much larger, familiar figure approaching. Hayden. She's known him from a few missions and also training. The same hand as before quickly waved to Hayden, smile still visible upon his lips. "Oh! Hey Hay!" A goofy grin coming across their lips at the extremely horrible nickname they came up for Hayden. A feeling of pride seen visible on her face from this. It's a question why he didn't get beat up for being a nerd very often. "Yeah, I'm here too, I got called for something special. I knocked on the door and have been waiting for a bit." He seemed fairly calm about this, and not all too worried about time or haste of this matter.
Soon, Hayden simply went over to swing the door open to reveal the interior. Ash slowly pushing herself off of the wall to lean over to the door frame, body leaning over so she could peak just inside. Eyes wide with anticipation. Hayden simply strutted over to the odd person, shaking his hand and introducing himself. Kamui... She's remembered the name, heard it a few times, but she can't just remember enough information. At the very least, she was familiar with it, and soon, she was extremely familiar with his face.
Seeing him almost appear suddenly right in front of her as she had been peeking through the door, leaping back in surprise as a girlish shriek escaped her lips. She was heavily surprise by someone just poofing in front of him, and even fell backwards, bum hitting the ground as he stared upwards. The man seemed... Nice at the very least, the smile putting them on edge, but it's something that they could handle. Her head slowly nodded as they seemed to fixate on a definite gender now that seeing who it was and hearing that they wouldn't attempt anything... What they thought as rude. Body appearing a bit softer than before as they slimmed slightly.
She seemed fairly silent for the moment, now watching him move over to the new girl before standing right back up to speak. An elite task force? Weren't they already part of the Initiative? Weren't most of their time put into that? A few question formed in her head, but she seemed certain that things would be explained in due time, hands slowly pushing herself up to a standing position as she blinked, taking a few steps closer as the room was revealed to them in a better fashion. And soon a question was revealed to her... She thought it was fairly obvious, it's what a lot of people do actually.

To answer the man’s question or to stare at him like he was a bag of dynamite that she didn’t know what to do with - other than throw it. That was the tough decision the petite female was faced with. It hadn’t been presented to her by the female that had arrived at the door, but some man that she was pretty sure she had never seen before in her life. With him being far from an interesting person, she had forgotten his name as soon as it had rolled off his tongue and so she was at a lost of how she should address him. Give him some lame nickname or simply refer to him as mister? Another question that had two rather tough options to pick from. Thankfully, the male decided that he wouldn’t be waiting for whoever lied behind the door to open it nor for the nicely dressed female who had beat them all to the door. She, obviously, thought the man to be rude for opening the door and she was a little to eager to wag her finger at him, forcing him to see the errors of his ways, but she kept those sentiments to herself. It wasn’t like the female named… uh… it wasn’t like the other female was complaining or anything.
Zero poked her head into the room, reddish brown eyes flickering about and taking note of several things about the room before aligning itself with the rest of her body. She adjusted her scarf, her eyes locking onto the form of a young man with red hair. She primarily took note of his smile since she believed that was the easiest way to discern rather or not one would be any fun and she decided that she liked this mysterious man despite knowing nothing about him. Okay, she probably would’ve known his name if she had been paying any sort of attention, but that was asking a lot out of the fifteen-year-old. Besides, it was bound to come up again and she would make sure she committed it to memory when it did. For now, she should probably get out the hallway and enter the spacious room. With her eyes drifting over to the female next to her, Zero had missed the red-haired male move from his place on the floor to in front of the door. Despite being startled, she did not jump back or land on her bum like a certain female. Her body did jolt to awareness though, but she relaxed quickly.
“Ya a fast one, mister.” She tilted her head to the left, not bothering to confirm or deny that Tōki was in fact her name. What would be the point of doing that? She continued to watch the man that had called the three down to the underground base, curiosity evident within her eyes. Zero would skip into the room upon being motioned to enter, stopping when she was right beside the only guy that had been called down here. Her eyes would flicker over to the only other female within the room, she being the first one to answer the question asked of them. She blinked several times, as if astonished that was what people did back before powers was a thing. It wasn’t like she did anything to hide her surprise.
“Eh? Really?!” She leaned forward, shifting her head ever so slightly so that she could get a better look at the female. She didn’t wait for a reply nor did she wait for someone to ask her what she thought happened. No, she was standing up straight, her eyes on nothing in particular, and her index finger tapping her chin. “I thought the hunters gave them candy because everyone knows that Wooly Mammoths are seriously allergic to that.” She nodded her head as if confirming this was true as she continued. “And there weren’t any of those pens that people like stabbing themselves with back then, so they died of allergic reaction.” Her eyes were back on the female, a smile replacing the thoughtful look that had temporarily donned her face. “But I guess your theory is right too!” Her attention would turn to the man, Zero pointing her finger at him. “Ya turn!”

Now that was interesting.
When it came to speed Hayden like to see himself somewhere in the upper echelon of it or advanced end of it so when he simply felt the hand vanish he won’t lie it put him on edge. So as his hand closed in a fist he remained there a moment as he began to hear the man speak to both the younger people behind him. This man was fast and that was not light coming from Hayden, perhaps it was something else entirely but for now he would dismiss it but store it in his mind for future recall. For now, the male would turn around to see the other man introducing himself to both the people, Hayden eyes watching with that intense but passive hawk like gaze he used when accessing situations or in the battle field. This wasn’t a battle field but he was meeting a new person and one that was bringing together three very interesting people from what Hayden could see.
Just like that introductions were done as the man began to walk someone and from the look he threw Hayden way he supposed he should follow. The walk was short but Hayden eye’s would be trained carefully on their surroundings followed the man named ‘Kamui’ himself. What a strange name. But none the less once they reached their destination he turned around beginning to talk about history than switching over to the thing about woolly-mammoths which Hayden actually knew but for polite reasons he let the other two go first. Ash was close but not quite what he think the man was looking for and Toki was well… they had originality. Now that it was Hayden turned he would open his mouth speaking rather plainly but the with a soft tone for the others in the room.
“I believe it was because they worked in a unit to bring down the beasts, just as we do as the Vanguard and even more so within the initiative.”
This was Hayden area of specialty afterall working in units and commanding them as a seated member within the very large Vanguard; he even commanded areas of operation when need be. He was no plain soldier or commander but he knew a bit about history and military tactics something he learned in his past and previous life. It was strange how unlike some he pursued almost the exact same life despite having the chance at new things. This was his passion and leaving it would be a fool errand, of course he would return.

Kamui listened quietly as every answer he heard was something he expected. No, that was a lie, two of the three answers were what he expected. He expected Ash to be close, but not quite get it and he/she/it was in fact pretty close. Humans did, in fact, wield weapons against the mighty mammoth. It was a big part of why man was able to hunt creatures far larger than he. Unfortunately, the weapons they have were, compared to what humans would later wield, barely more than glorified sticks. A house cat was not likely to kill a healthy human simply because it had claws however. That was where Ash's thought process fell apart. A human with a stick, by himself, was never going to kill a mammoth short of some herculean effort from a human performing above and beyond his ability. So while he was, indeed, on the right track, he did not quite understand why he was or what point Kamui was trying to make. Then came the Hayden's answer, the answer he expected to get it right...and he was for the most part. Him missing another of the crucial points wasn't too out of character, he might even have understood and appreciated the part he missed, he might have even implied it, but an implication wasn't necessarily going to get the message through to the other two...and then there was the answer he didn't expect. Toki or Zero as she seemed to mentally refer to herself as, was very much the unknown in their little group. She was the x-factor, the enigma that Kamui did not have every answer mapped out for. That made her quite, quite interesting. Then her answer came...and Kamui couldn't tell if she was an idiot, eccentric, an ass, or all of the above. He was going to hope for the latter two, but he was going to enjoy all three all the same.
As they had all finished speaking, Kamui's eyes had been fixated on the candy solution for a few seconds after the words finished leaving Hayden's lips, a few seconds that seemed to laugh forever...before Kamui's head rolled back and joyous, benevolent laughter left him in a fit. He laughed for a solid thirty seconds. The answer was so ridiculous, so uninformed, that he had trouble believing it was genuine. Part of him doubted it was, but regardless her answer was hilariously stupid and not necessarily wrong. Candy in its modern incarnation was not really a thing back then, the closest thing to it was a raw sugar cane plant which was most definitely not a thing in the kind of conditions where Wooly Mammoths lived. However, because there was no real tests, hypothetical or otherwise, that they could use to test her theory, there was no way to definitively prove that mammoths were, in fact, not allergic to candy. Of course, her question did still fail to answer his, as humans didn't actually have access to the vaunted candy and couldn't possibly use it to hunt the mammoth.
"Haha...oh dear. No, Toki. Unfortunately we can't fact check whether or not they were allergic to candy, we can fact check whether or not hunters from that time HAD candy however, and they did not. Even still, the line between lunacy and brilliance is paper thin and you are quite close to being a genius. You are in part right, Ash, however as Hayden pointed out, it was never just one weapon that brought down the mammoth. Humans worked in squads, groups, teams to drag down a creature that was far mightier than he. You are all weapons...do you believe you could kill me? I am very allergic to candy."
He wasn't, but he also wasn't especially adverse to the idea of Toki feeding him, and not just because he was an incorrigible sexual deviant, but mostly because he could really, really go for some candy right now. Kamui leaned back, an audible crack echoing through the training room as he gently rolled his back around, a playful smile still dancing across his lips. That was the goal after all, not the back cracking of course but the objective of this little squad was to create an entity that was greater than the sum of its parts, an entity that could take on anyone and anything. They were the test, they were the way Kamui would truly be able to test his creations and he could see no better test than to pit one creation against the other.
"That's what we'll be finding out today. We are going to play a little game. You guys are still a little way off the whole killing thing, so we'll settle for hitting me. Whenever you guys manage to land a clean hit to the head or torso, you will pass and you might even receive your first mission. If you don't...well we'll be here for awhile."
Kamui would find himself waiting patiently, standing about five meters off from the closest one, Hayden, and standing rather casually at that. The man would hold the same stoic, almost emotionless smile that he had been wearing since he had announced the contest he was putting them to. They were going to have the develop the part that each one of their answers missed, the edge that they were not going to gain with weapon or numbers. Arsenal and numerical advantages were tools, advantages to gain to give one the means to achieve victory. What actually generated the victory, what actually accomplished anything, was not something so crude, something so material. If they cloned Hayden twenty times over and tried to attack Kamui he would simply lose twenty times over and the fates of the other two would not be much more flattering. Winning would require more than willpower, it'd require more than strength, it's require more than numbers. If they found the answer, wonderful. If they did not...then like he said, they would be here for awhile.

Ash seemed humored by the new girl's response. Lips kept shut as she tried not to laugh out loud, goofy smile coming upon her lips as she remained still. It was quite funny to think that old hunters would just feed mammoth's candy and hope it worked, at least in her eyes... At least until a small history lesson was given. Ash wasn't as knowledgeable as she wished, so she simply assumed that Toki actually had a reason to say all of that.
And soon it was suggested that instead of Toki simply knowing some smart piece of trivia, it was rather just a foolish mind. Ash thought it was a good attempt and answering the question however, and kept the goofy smile upon her lips as she stood up as tall as she could. Eye staring towards Kamui now with curiosity as to what would be happening now. And soon, that smile was wiped off of her lips with their task handed to them. Hitting Kamui. Why would that ever be a good test? There wasn't a real need for violence considering they were all just Vanguard members, and quite honestly, Ash despised violence when it could be avoided. The young figure gently bit down upon their lower lip, nearly piercing her own flesh as she had to think about what to do for this.
The first obvious answer was to use some big attack that was hard to avoid, but that'd bring him pain if it did hit, and she didn't really want that. So instead, a separate plan formulated in her head. Hands remained motionless as she instead narrowed her eyes, still seemingly a bit worried as she gazed towards Kamui's head. In reality, she was staring at the space behind him, blank and devoid of anything there, just air. An odd, dark energy was felt all around as anyone staring past Kamui would see a small portal open up. Only about the size of a watermelon in width, and staring into it showed a dark green expanse of... Something. It was hard to tell at the current moment, but something was emerging from it without a sound.
'SNAP'. That was the sound that would be emitted if the attack was successful. A very thin, long tentacle made from some dark green beast shot out from the portal. Sailing through the air and attempting to essentially whip Kamui's back. To someone extremely trained, they could hear the air being torn through as this being moved at incredible speed to accomplish this. The actual damage and pain that would be let out from this attack wasn't harsh. Instead, it would feel similar to a rubber band smacking against flesh, something to count as a form of hitting someone, but without harming them.
The effect on herself was not quite as noticeable, but still something that bothered her. Her eyelid twitching for just a moment as her body shook, mind assaulted by unholy thoughts. Those of corruption of innocence, domineering those they could, showing her real powers. Luckily... These thoughts were mostly quiet within her mind, and was easy to ignore. Despite her ability to ignore them, it was still irritating and quite annoying to constantly hear them in the background. Repeating themselves over and over once more. She just hoped the attack would hit.
