____________________________________________________________

Despite having ample medical leave, the questionable mental effects of large scale combat - Lukas was eager to get back to work. Perhaps not eager; vindictive, driven, impatient. Impatient to make good of what was becoming more endemic of the Vandenreich's failings, day by day, death by death. A smoldering resentment languished at the bottom of his heart, dying to burn again in the face of his detractors. Too many dead. Too many dying.

"Alright, recruits, attention." Lukas' voiced growled across the intercom, microphone nestled against his shirt. A tank top covered by a blue quincy cross, the bandaged stump of his right shoulder staring out. Opposite, the leiden hant encroaching towards his neck doing well to hide fresh scars. Unkempt, incredibly short hair cropped his face, a faint shadow of stubble almost reflective underneath the lights.

"This is usually where you get the spiel about 'thank you for joining', or some other pointless coddling. As a form of respect, we'll be skipping that. All of you have made it here, which means you're not children, so you will not be treated as children." Lukas paced as he walked, the unending intensity of his glare pouring over the group of recruits.

Ten in total, shoulder to shoulder, the latest wave of signups following Africa, Ichigo... It had been a rough year, and the Vandenreich wasn't going to be turning anyone away. Maybe his hint of 'respect' would be an overestimation; a consideration he wasn't going to make.

"I am going to be your combat instructor, Lukas. Today is the most important day of your training, because you will sink, or swim. And I assure you," The assassin's glare threatened, and for a heartbeat his reiatsu surged, visible on the air - "Some of you will sink. I ask that you don't take it personally."

Stopping, his gaze shifted back and forth, across the students. a mirror to their emotion in silver pools. "A desk worker on the battlefield is a dead one."

Stella was slightly nervous as she sat in line. She would listen to the man as she would nod. She understood, but she was determined that she was meant to be here. She didn't need anyone to coddle her, although, the compliments from Lukas and Nat were nice. She would watch the man as she thinks this is probably the most intense person she's seen here so far.

She would wait for him to keep speaking as she would nod at the last bit. She thinks she can handle the fighting, but her problem right now was the wall she had seemed to hit on her strength. At the end of his talk she would join in the other recruits saying. "Yes, sir."

"Then let's start." Stepping back, Lukas waved his arm, a series of pedestals rising from the floor. One by one they thrummed to the surface, erecting to roughly waist high in front of each recruit. Static hung in the air around them, sloshing with liquid reishi as their rise came to a halt. Screens flickered to life, a digital handprint facing them.

"As quincy, the lifeblood of anything, everything, you do - is the ability to manipulate reishi. This is a test of your ability to do just that, and it gives us a hint at your compatibility. Placing your hands on the consoles in front of you will open the canister, and you will attempt to utilize within." Pointing at one of the cylinders, his eyes cut across the group.

"This is dense, liquid reishi. More stable in a lot of ways, but, it hurts like a bitch to touch. How you choose to handle this information is part of your examination." Snapping as he drew his arm back, a holographic timer shot from the floor in front of him, changing as he spoke. "You'll have five minutes to think - " a five flashed on the air " - and then one to see how far you get." A thirty flickered, and then the countdown started.

4:59, 4:58 -

"Show that you know how to use your abilities - and good luck, everyone." Lukas' voice booming over the intercom, he slid down onto the floor, watching with arm tented across his knees.

Stella would think about how she was going to go about it. As thr clock ticked down Stella would think. She could feel that it was Reishi, so maybe she could use it to summon her axe? She didn't exactly have a spirt bow like her mother does, but she does have an axe. As she would close her eyes, and focus on manipulating the reishi inside of the liquid as she would attempt to summon her axe.

Albeit her axe was a bit smaller than she usually would, but she did successfully use the liquid. Hoping that she didn't misunderstand what rhe instructions were she would speak up a bit so that Lukas may be able to hear her.

"L...like this?"

The man was a bit more intense than Natasha or Solomon so she would try to not sound disrespectful or anything. However, she could feel the sweat dripping down her brow from the concentration. She wasn't really all that used to focusing like that on reishi manipulation. It was usually pretty natural for the red head.

0:03, 0:02, 0:01 - The numbers vanished, and a klaxon whooped through the air, suffocating under silence a split second after.

Where he commanded, the students began, although not all of them showed promise.

A younger man, close knit brow atop dark green eyes, barely visible behind long golden bangs - foolhardy, reckless, as he plunged his arm fist first into the solution. Bravado in the face of a warning - his immediate recoil and ear splitting scream proving the need for safety labels all across the stadt.

"Tsk." Air spit from between his teeth as Lukas stepped to him, a blink before the man dissapeared, dropped by the entrance. Rounding back to the remainder of the students, he glanced over their attempts; steel in his eyes.

One had attempted a long, mumbled chant, only resulting in turning half of her liquid to mush. A promising resullt from a blonde man on the far end, his skin flaring with deep veins of blut, and his canister nearly empty. Next to him was a far more timid subject, by presentation. A stutter escaped her with the majority of the tank empty, forming into her spirit weapon.

Turning his head, the remaining half hadn't managed much more - a mismanaged mix of half appropriate attempts and outright failures, the most eye drawing being a try at simply removing the canister from the floor.

"You." Lukas' finger accused the man, his back strained with rigor. "Out." Whether or not he complied in a timely matter, the quincy did not care, and he turned his attention back to the rest.

"Yes, miss. Like that. His head tilted towards the axe, Lukas moving by the abandoned canister. As his hand slid over the top, the reishi within seized, dissapearing, and with a flourish Ahnengeist danced against his palm.

"Your spirit weapon is the most important tool at disposal. Blut," The blade swiveled, pointing at the young man's glowing veins. "Is simpler in comparison, but direct. Where you could consider a spirit weapon vital, most think of blut as supplementary." He circled past the group as he spoke, returning to stand in front of them as Ahnengeist dissapeared into thin air.

"Gebet can be a mess if not prepared properly, frau." his comment directed to the woman and her canister of sludge, a bite to the words. "But all of it, every building block, is reishi. Reishi, and your ability to control it."

Pausing, the man glanced across the remaining eight, ready to move on. "Now, questions before we proceed?"

"No sir"

Stella would speak short and to the point. She didn't want to draw any uneeded hostility to herself, so she would make an attempt to keep her talk short. The man was very intimidating, so she would just follow along with what he says until she feels that she is not able to do so.

She would follow him as she would speak of slightly. Her curiosity would get the best of her, but she figured if he was testing their baseline abilities then either. blut or steigen may be up next. Both of which she is okay at, but she would wonder how the other 8 are.

"What's next, sir?"

____________________________________________________________

A mixed chorus of 'no', 'no sir', varying in tone and confidence, short and sweet. Lukas, despite his outward intensity, appreciated it at the least.

"Alright," his voice rattling over the speakers as the canisters sank back into the floor, "Considering that you're all at various levels of reishi control, I'd be an idiot to assume it's not the same for your ability to fight. First, I want a show of hands." Lifting his own up, his voice rattled the walls, darker in tone.

"Have you fought before?" A mismanaged group of hands lifted up, a few side eyes granted to their peers. If they were sizing each other up, Lukas could almost find it admirable; but that was far from the point of today. Nodding, the quincy spoke again, spreading the fingers on his raised hand.

"Alright, next - have you killed before?" The mood in the room shifted suddenly, an immediate apprehension from many of the would-be students. Lukas' gaze sliced across the group, a sterness present in his voice that was absent prior. Hands staying by their sides, with a nervous fever in the odd eye. "I am not here to punish you for any crimes. But this is something I need to know. Man, beast, soul or flesh - have you killed?

"I've killed hollows."

Stella would answer quickly and honestly. She hadn't ever killed anyone that wasn't a hollow before though. She hoped that it wouldn't ever have to come to that, because she wasn't sure if that was something she would even be able to do. Stella was rather soft, but she wasn't entirely sure how much that would affect her in the Vandenreich. She was curious about this man now though. She hadn't seen him around before.
