Knuckles Shi
They had reached port a few days ago, it was now time to get off and stretch the legs, the Rev LT slipped his Dial gloves one and strapped them up. Now that they were secured he gathered his things and went off into the sandy area. He went from the tundra to the desert, it was comical to him. Surely the men under his charge were shocked and confused but knew their leader has a plan a and reason as to why he does the thing he did. The male found himself awaiting his ally who traveled with them here from the Tundra, they had agreed to do a bit of training with each other to knock that raveling rust off. Knuckles was looking eager to see how much stronger his friend had gotten over these years and what exactly he had become accustomed to using in these types of sparring matches. After all they were both trained by the Rev's long ago to use the basics of some form of Haki. Knuckles wasn't much for the Haki he learned while in the Rev's training camp but it was still good to go back to the basics and ensure he kept his training up. Those who would see him there off of the peer would notice that he was wearing his as always black boots,pants and grey T-shirt. He thought it best to leave his black jacket on the ship with the heat of this place and all.

  • Gauntlets( 2 Axe dials, 1 Reject Dial)
  • Noah(Thunder Dial, Heat Dial)
  • Ministrel Helmet
  • Oxygen Dial
  • Jet Boots(2 Jet Dials)
  • Vision Dial

Total Equipment slots used: 7.5(dials count for half so they equal 4.5)

Assembling Jet Boots:

Here we were again, making more dials. Truly nothing was more elegant than his life’s passion and with his newest ideas he was once again improving his swordsmanship by proxy. He examined his Jet dials and Oxygen dial, the shell designs were a little more intricate than the typical dials he dealt with. He had been able to find rarer and more powerful dials lately, it was a signal of his power to Ataru. He would start with the Jet dials he planned on attaching him to each of his new boots. It was going to increase his acceleration, while also allowing him for quick take offs or even higher jumps. Looking at his boots on the table, Ataru started to map out the dimensions. This part was his typical ritual measurements had to be precise for comfortability. The difference between some average dial maker and Ataru was not comparable anymore. Transcending his competition required practices such as this the next would be how he specifically used his tool kit in attaching dials.

His tool kit was pristine he pulled out the file he used to shorten the dials length. The grinding sound against the dial use to discomfort Ataru, he has slowly become use to the dissonance it creates. In the past he use to measure it every couple seconds while filing, however now he did it in one go. Measuring his work he decided that it was satisfactory for this dial. The blue color of the shell was sparkling in the light, Ataru was using his vision dial to look closely while he worked. Every molecule of a dial was something that was a gift directly from the gods, there was no other material in the world capable of holding matter similarly. He took his right boot and started to drill out the hole he needed, making sure the circumference matched the measurement of the filed down dial. Placing it carefully inside the boot Ataru used one of his tools to start melting the dials shaving with some of his other materials to make the paste. In essence it was more of the dial then chemicals which is how the paste connected and affixed it to the item in question. Ataru started to let it dry on the first boot as he started to remeasure, to make sure everything was going accordingly. While he was doing this he was reminded of how he learned all of his skills in the first place, in Skypiea back with what he considered his real family. It seemed to be a distant memory.It will soon be time don’t forget the true meaning of you joining this crew. Pushing it from his thoughts Ataru looked down back at the boots the paste had settled in. He rotated it around observing it from different angles making sure the dial wasn’t sticking out or that it would rub against his feet. Trying on the boot he knew that it was another masterpiece, he couldn’t wait until the next one was complete. These jet boots were an idea he wanted to use for quite some time, he just didn’t have jet dials powerful enough until now.

Filing down the next Jet dial, more confident after the first success. He was emboldened by it grinding it down in twice the speed. His eyes could measure a dial pretty accurately, he considered just eyeing it. Then the voice of his instructor of dials came into his mind and he laughed at the thought of not measuring. As expected everything was still accurate, but the measuring always help Ataru relax a little during the process. He knew that a little speed was necessary his captain was waiting on him. Today he would show him the power of Haki, something taught to him by a Revolutionary captain. Not wanting to fall too off track Ataru refocused in, starting to cut the circumference of the dial in the boot again. These jet dials were going to be powerful they would also serve as a experiment to see if Ataru wanted to add such dials to his sub. Maybe even his captain's ship when he found one he enjoyed. Which is why these boots needed to be perfectly constructed. He started to create the fresh paste, for the next boot. The paste itself had to be mushed down Ataru used a mortle and pestle for this but he wasn't sure how other dial users attached gear. That was something he had started to become interested in as well, as far as he had traveled the seas he had yet met another dial specialist. In his thoughts paste finished, Ataru started to apply it while inserting the dial into the boot. Once again it would take some time to seal in place and while it did Ataru would look over the designs he had made. The activation of these boots had to be something that was not controlled by fine motor skills of his feet. That was something that could go very quickly not just in adrenaline situations but in extreme temperatures. He also had to make sure the activation could be near instantaneous, not something as mundane as clicking the boots together. In the end he decided that the activation method should be applying pressure on the heel while moving his foot in a specific direction depending on the boot. That way it couldn't be something that might happen as a result of the battle. Content with his activation method he pulled out the brand. No matter what device there was only one way to know you owned a Minstrel Original and that was with this brand. He made sure the mark was visible on the inside of his Jet boots, all of his brands were in the same spot when it came to a specific design. So anyone who ever received a pair of Jet Boots from Ataru would find the brand on the upper lip of the inside of the boots. He tried on his new pair of boots excited. He would run to meet with his captain now, though he probably would be surprised by his speed.

Activating one of his jet dials on his left foot Ataru took off reaching his top speed in a short time. He knew where he was to meet his captain he had also brought him a baby DDM so he could better communicate with others in the region. He would appear before Knuckles as a blur since his movement was significantly higher than his perception. Arriving in front of him he would drop to a knee 8 steps away with a Baby DDM presented in his hands. This was for a comical effect, as for Knuckles the scene would be a flash of a blur appearing on his knees. After Knuckles took the Baby DDM Ataru would smile and take off his clothes until he was just in his pants with no shirt. Ataru had many muscles from his slavery work but more noticeable than his muscles would be all the whip scars as well as other manner of scars. They covered his entire body he was not ashamed of them he wore them as a badge, though it wouldn't be obvious that they were from slavery. Looking at Knuckles Ataru would finally speak "You may be my Cap'n but I can see you have been neglecting the physical aspects of your training. You can't conquer the seas on intelligence alone, today I will show you how to utilize Busoshoku Haki. The first step of course is warming up so just come at me with a couple punches. I'll block with my Busoshoku Haki in my arm, notice how it feels against your skin. Also watch how this activation works." When he finished speaking Ataru would form Busoshoku Haki on his left arm while it wasn't as black as Ataru wanted. It was still impressive for those who didn't use haki often. He still had work to do himself thinking of how he needed to train after this.

While Knuckles was waiting he blinked but only for a second to see sand be tossed into the air, at first he thought perhaps the win but as he followed the sand he notice a figure kneeling. Upon further review it was noted to be Ru. Was he really this far ahead of him? Already, Knuckles knew this was going to require some extra work on his part. It was time to put that big brain to use. Walking on up to Ru he reached down at the small slug creature gripping it within his hand. Looking at the small creature his emerald hues stared at it watching it sleep. Looking back at his friend he chuckled. "You really ought to stop doing such thing in front of my men." He said as he turned his back and took about 5 paces placing him 10 meters away from Ru. Turning back to face the shirtless man he listed to his words. "That might be true, but it but leading a small unit doesn't leave much personal time. And don't under estimate me. He placed the small slug creature into his pocket keeping it nice and tucked away. He watched as Ru's arms went from black to well black, only the newer black wasn't a skin complexion. It was one of the basic forms of one using Haki, though Knuckles couldn't do that at this moment he was sure he'd learn how by the end of this little warm up. Nodding to the challenge of landing a blow the arms Knuckles lowers his body down getting it centered. Launching himself like a rocket taking off for his target, once getting into a 7 meter distance he broke his sprint to lift his right hand up above his head, attempting to draw attention from this he swung his left arm with a hook aiming for the right arm of Ru attempting to make contact.

Ataru could see that his words had impact, he had possibly upset his Cap'n. Which was good, that was what he intended he found that training was more meaningful that way. If he came at him with anything less than intent to win, Ataru wouldn't be here. Ataru wasn't actually much of a fist fighter, he used his haki mainly in his left arm as a defensive blocking measure. To help with his one handed swordsmanship he saw his left arm almost as a shield. So when he tried to dodge the feint of Knuckles right arm he found himself caught in the trap of his left hook. It connected to his left arm striking his Busoshoku Haki, it wasn't strong enough to break it. Ataru still felt the contact, and he was sure that Knuckles would slightly regret making such a direct strike onto the armor. Ataru would leap back 1 meter to give himself some breathing space smiling he would continue to watch Knuckles. This wasn't the kind of training where he would go on the offensive mostly as it was to train. He wasn't aware of where Knuckles learned how to fight, then again they hadn't fought much during the training.

Ataru didn't plan on falling for something as simple as a feint again, he would say a little to try and help Knuckles understand Busoshoku Haki. "Nice punch, now you should try imagining your willpower and forming it. Don't try to extend it as far as me, it might not necessarily be armor in your mind either. It's a little different for each user, what's important is that Haki represents your willpower or lifeforce. How you utilize it is ultimately up to you."

It seemed his trick work however Knuckles was sort of regretting his choice to make such a hard hook. His hand was now light pink on the surface, he could feel the sharp pain coming from his knuckles on his left fist. Giving it a shake he watched Ru go back a little bit probably gaining some room. Listening to his word Knuckles nodded. He needed to draw his willpower or life force the energy within one's self. Knuckles used his mind to picture the energy within him, he needed to draw it out to be on equal terms. Knux pictured his left fist with a burning enhanced plate over it. The burning part was his life force or willpower manifesting into something. It wasn't solid at this point but it was something he could feel it. With out even looking he went in again. This time he lead with a left jab going towards the fore arm, he was hopping this time if he made contact it wouldn't hurt like hell again. Even if it had been blocked or countered Knuckles was getting some purpose out of this. "You better stand your ground Ru. While you been making deals I've been giving this government shit!" He was trying to press Ru into fighting back, after all sparring went both ways. there was nothing gained if he didn't get any bruises as well. One thing was certain Knuckles was going to achieve this Haki and armor up his Knuckles if nothing else.

Ataru watched as Knuckles began to focus his energy. His skin didn't hardened quite yet, he had not yet achieved the result that took Ataru years to learn. He seemed to be making more progress than Ataru did. Well hopefully it's just because I'm such good teacher. He noticed that Knuckles was already trying to use it offensively as he struck again at Ataru's arm. While he knew that his deeper shade would still be stronger, Ataru did want Knuckles to understand the benefits of Busoshoku Haki. He let the fist connect, knowing it wouldn't cause either to much harm. Then he'd hear Knuckles taunt, he could try to fight him blow for blow. That however wasn't Ataru's style, he chuckled a little as he swung with his right hook towards Knuckles arm.

If it connected Ataru would try to bring his left knee up to strike Knuckles. Regardless if the knee connected Ataru would square off again at Knuckles.

If it didn't connect then Ataru would start to speed up moving in circles around Knuckles. "You misunderstand, I haven't just been doing deals. Speed is my style, so you could say running is what I do best." He would start to do quick jabs, towards Knuckles arms and body he didn't want to hurt that face.

Regardless of which option that happened after he performed a couple moves he would try to position himself half a meter away from Knuckles. Then he would speak again, "The real power of Busoshoku comes from mastery. Once you're more adept you can spread it across your body or even be able to affect intangible fighters."While Ataru hadn't done either yet, he had just been working on strengthening his haki he did know what was possible. What goals he too would be working for with his Armement, it mattered that they were both constantly progressing to be stronger.

Knuckles realized that the burning he felt in his fist had hulat some of the damage he had taken unlike last time.  It seemed Ru was done letting Knuckles bet on him, he swung a hook at his arm, Knuckles Quickly Focused his inner energy around his arm. In a flash the front of his arm became a lightish black color. The contact of the blow was felt, but lessen. Grinning in his shitty achievement he got happy.  He was getting this down!  Knuckles rest his guard as Ru did. Listening to the words of his friend he nodded as his emerald hues selected his next target and how he would get there, with a loud burst scream His right arm began to burn with energy as the whole arm became lightish black.  He seemed to have gotten this Haki down pack, at least the very basics. Knuckles stood straight up and bowed to his friend pulling a page from his book. "Thank you for showing me this....Master."
He muttered as he grinned before looking up, but it was true he was glad to have learned something useful and something that he could use to bring forth the world had envisioned. Now that he learned how to use it he just needed to improve on it. Ru's words would  be acknowledged.  This was the start of their journey together and they were already making each other better and stronger. They still had far to go, it made him excited.

Knuckles successfully transformed his arm in the midst of their close quarters combat. He did some screaming in the moment then cocked his left fist back, Ataru saw the grin across Knuckles face. He had left himself a little bit open after the transformation, but Ataru wasn't interested in things like that especially in training. Who won or lost was miniscule to him, the thing that mattered was the lesson and Knuckles was passing that with flying colors. Ataru tried to sound light hearted with his laugh at the mention of the master joke. Knuckles would probably notice that it wasn't as jovial as Ataru's usual laughter some small button had been pressed. One of the few that Ataru was capable of having.

Afterwards he would move through the sand swinging his left arm at Knuckles haki if successful the sound of their haki's hitting each other would be cacophonous. He'd jump back and speak to Knuckles "I think that's enough for today you've made great progress. Your Haki will only get blacker with time then we can be real brothers.". Laughing at his own joke Ataru relinquished  his haki. Ataru's strength wasn't anything to be trifled at, though his speed was his primary concern he still needed power.  It was obvious to anyone who was a Martial Artist that Ataru wasn't exactly proficient in his hand to hand. It was more that his talents in swordsmanship gave him a small idea of how battlespace geometry worked since he was still in close range. It had been a while since Ataru sparred with anyone. Hmm maybe next time we will spar with our full powers, though maybe I should find another swordsman.

He would put his clothes back on, and start heading towards one of the town. Ataru was ready for a shower a drink and a good nights sleep after today. Tomorrow time to assemble the crew.
