Yasashi stood amidst green grass and quiet blue skies. This section of the training areas around UA High was largely bereft of people. Most wanted to stay near the school in case they had questions for their teachers. Yasashi had a different problem. While Yumi had inspired him to take his quirk more seriously and his encounter with Mia had stoked a bit more of that fire. He was still self conscious about how his quirk looked to other people. It didn't help that most folks couldn't figure him out since the quirk gave him such a huge body to boot.
He entered a horse stance, taking a few deep breaths and drawing his fists to his hips. He had been out here a couple of times since his encounter with Yumi, intentionally activating the armor part of his quirk in public. A sudden flash and jet of air around his skin gave warning that he was about to change. His muscles tensed and bone began to form around his skin and clothes. It took only five seconds this time, but his arms, legs, and shoulders were encased in a tough bone-white armor. He'd even managed to smooth out some of the creepy bumps to make it look like plates.
He looked at his hands, opening and closing his fists to check and make sure he had manual dexterity before letting out a sharp exhale. He did it. In public. It felt surprisingly good... despite the creep factor. Smiling broadly to himself he did a few sharp poses, punches and kicks. The armor held and didn't creak all that much this time either. It wasn't that heavy, maybe he could add a few more plates? Absently he gestured with his hand toward his bag and a bony arm grew from the ground, grasping the handle and slinking across the dirt toward him before handing him the article.
He reached inside and pulled out a bottle of water. "Hmm... what about a helmet, or face mask?"

Iwasaka Shouko. UA High School's infamous battle maniac. A girl who was true to herself in all things- And none moreso than her self proclaimed three interests. Superpowers! Battles! And Superpowered Battles! As such, it was quite common to find her loitering about the school's numerous training facilities- Both indoors, and outdoors. Whether it was training herself, or peeping on other people's routines, both were well within her interests! Of course, the open field was easier for the latter, not having doors to close... But that had never stopped her in the past!
However, today, she did not have to travel far. A battle analyst such as herself, how could she not recognize a horse stance at a glance? Her eyes lit up like a predator who has seen it's prey, slinking forward to see what she can see... The first thing she notices, whoa, he's big! Almost two meters, wao! Of course, size isn't everything, especially when considering quirks... But to say it was meaningless, was a lie! Weight, reach, leverage... height gave all sorts of advantages in martial arts! And given his horse stance, it was clear that was what he was practicing!
However, even as she judged his stance, it's strengths and flaws... He changed! Not his stance, but himself! A flowing armor coating over his clothes, white as bone. An unintentional exclamation revealed the girl's position - "Wao!" Super cool! A professional(?) to her core, Shouko wouldn't be bothered by little things like looking like a living skeleton... If anything, that made it even cooler! And when he moved! Oh! Those were good punches! Shouko nodded in approval. And then! To top it off! With a simple hand gesture, an arm grew from the ground, and brought him his bag! "Whoahohohho!" Shouko exclaimed, her presence no longer even attempting to be hidden.
"That's so cool! I haven't seen you around before, are you a new student?" Shouko would ask, surprisingly waiting until he had finished before beginning her trademarked barrage... of course, that was nothing strange. She hated interrupting people when they were training, if she did that, how was she supposed to watch!? "Ah, right. I'm Shouko, what's your name?" Shouko would think to introduce herself, a thing she has been... Getting slightly better at.

Yasashi was just holding the bottle up to his lips. He hadn’t heard the first shout, but the second had been so obvious even he had to pick up on it. A chill ran up his spine and he jumped, nearly out of his skin, when he heard the girls voice call out to him on approach. He spluttered and turned, eyes wide. Icy blue beady eyes stared at her for just a few seconds before a without even thinking white plates formed around his face and over his mouth, after just a few moments he was wearing a helmet-like mask that appeared like a stylized skull. It looked more like one of those helmets a sentai hero would wear. The only difference being that for some reason those blue eyes of his burned and glowed from within the dark sockets left behind.
Aaah… uhh…” He stammered as she approached, blinking a few times while he took her in. What was her motivation? What did she want? What did she say?
Then it hit him and the mask began to retract away from his face.
”You…thought it was cool?” He asked. Stunned and maybe a little frustrated. Was it really just him and his neighbors growing up who thought so little of his quirk? He let out a breath through his nostrils and forced himself to relax. A smile crept across his features and his eyes seemed to crinkle in a kindly old man sort of way. He rubbed the back of his neck with an armored hand and nodded. ”Taka Yasashi, Class 1-B, came in mid-semester,” His smile became a bit broader and he extended his hand.
