In chess, the Queen is the hardest to beat...
Who: Phoenix OT the White Queen
Where: Green Block
When: Thursday, June 04
What: Block owner and fighter gear up for some training, though resistant as it might be.
Jean had woken up in her room that morning, and frowned after looking over the most recent reports on the fighting levels of her block. Green was not doing as well as she had kept it at previously, and her current emotional state and mental issues should never stop her fighters from obtaining and being their best. She would simply not accept that. Something was going on, and she was determined to find out what it was. So far, fighters numbered one through six had all simply gotten lazy in her absence at their sessions, so she simply pushed them harder, all of them gasping for air and incurring serious injury before she called it a day for them. The last on the list for this hour was the seventh, the White Queen. Many spectators had mentioned similarities between herself and this woman, had drawn conclusions that Emma Frost would be replacing Jean Grey in the pits and would soon become the next strongest fighter on the island. The Red Queen herself had simply raised an eyebrow to the concept and carried on. Phoenix, however, had emitted a mirthless chuckle from her vantage point, and had noted the other woman's strengths for her own purposes. As always, Jean had no idea what those could be and never wanted to find out, though that would not change the fate of today's exercise. She was still going to run a session with this White Queen.
A summon had been sent up to her block, to that room, and directions for the woman to be brought down had left at least ten minutes ago, which meant that more than likely, she would be in the door any second. Jean was interested to meet this woman face to face again. They had done this before, training, fighting, working on the common goal of getting this white clothed female to the top of her block and her abilities, expanding what they could work on together, and looking for ways to enhance that which they could not work on together. Between attack angles, flexibility training, and situation assessment, the two of them had sometimes gotten along. This student, if a forced student could be considered such, was very intelligent, and had a will to be vindictive as well as fierce when crossed. She had the ability to rise to the top ranks, and Jean wanted to know what that hadn't happened yet.
