Bryn waited impatiently for the two other jonin to move away. The Mizukage made a clone which made Bryn huff. "Whaaaat? A clone? Ain't you supposed to be the Mizukage?" She stuck her tongue out at the clone as it got to twenty meters. That giant ass sword he took off his back made Bryn think he was going to attack them with it, and an attack from something like that was more suited to Hana's tastes. She bet her cousin figured the same thing, and so when the one jonin declared the match to have begun Bryn would immediately dash back and slightly to the side as Hana made her move in front of Bryn.
This was Formation Three, one of a few formations the two cousins had come up with on their missions together when Hana was a chuunin. Since she had become a jonin, their time together had lessened as was to be expected. But instincts never went away in a shinobi, not when they were still young. With Bryn behind Hana now, the Mizukage's initial plan of assault had the hitch of having to get past Hana in order to strike Bryn.
As the Valkyrie had retreated, spear cradled in the crook of her right arm, she formed a hand seal to make three more balls of Scorch chakra pop up around her. Her initial three would stay near Hana, swirling behind her as the Mizukage closed in. Hana moved to intercept him, and Bryn would do two things at once. She had caught sight of the Mizukage trying to perform the Hiding in Mist technique, and a mist was rolling in towards the group. An inhalation and sudden chakra infused expulsion of Fuuton blasted into the ground, the gentle breeze of a technique blowing away the mist to prevent any sort of shenanigans on the part of the Mizukage. This would be a clean fight! Bryn stopped her retreat after this technique was used, being eight meters behind Hana and a good enough distance from the Mizukage that she could react if he managed to get past Hana somehow.
The second thing would be a conscious manipulation of her initial three spheres out and around the battling forms of the Mizukage's clone and Hana. These three orbs would swirl around the two in a close vortex of fiery death at waist height. When they swirled back to Hana, they took a more obtuse course to give the Kaguya a couple meters of breathing space. When they advanced on the Mizukage's clone, however, they closed tightly and gave him only a single meter. It was a dangerous maneuver as Hana could inadvertently get hit by one of the spheres, but her bodily coordination with taijutsu was good enough that Bryn had enough faith in her cousin to not let that happen.
The second trio of fiery death spheres hovered behind the two fighting shinobi about five meters away and six meters in the air. They rotated quickly in a very tight circle, threatening to collide together. They would not, however, though Bryn was considering the idea of combining them to make the super big ball of fiery death that blew up everything within throwing range. That seemed a little too much firepower for a spar though, so she would keep it to the three little balls of fiery death. As she decided that, these spheres would split into a rotating triangle in the air ten meters above the fighting duo of shinobi, ready to pounce.
"Make a clone against the two of us, will you... See how you like it," Bryn muttered as she made the seal for a shadow clone. It would pop into existence next to her, spear in hand, knowing its purpose in life. The clone circled around the two fighters entangled in combat with the three fiery balls of death swirling around them and made its way towards Kyoji's real body, the one that had tried to use Hiding in Mist against two of the Mist's jonin. Bryn wanted to see what he could do against someone like her, full of surprises.
Kyoji was known for his blood lust though, due mostly to his clan's heritage. He would likely be delighted to see the grin on her clone's face, one that appeared so innocent and yet was just ever so slightly off on further inspection. There was something else behind that smile, but what was it? The clone's eyes were focused on the Mizukage, spear held in both hands and down at her right. It crossed slightly in front of her at waist height, a position she could quickly attack or defend from.
Bryn was not the fastest shinobi in Kirigakure, not was she the strongest and likely wasn't even close to the most coordinated. She was average in most of her physical attributes except for her stamina, of which she had almost as much as the Mizukage himself. However, there was one other attribute of hers that made her dangerous.
She was a tricky one.
As the clone ran towards the Mizukage, it would eye him to see if he came to meet it rather than waiting for it to come to him. It was generally better to be on the offensive with a weapon like his and Bryn knew it as a weapon master herself. Chakra was prepared on the part of the clone, ready to be utilized for the jutsu Bryn had in mind to use against someone who was likely superior to her in every way with pure physical prowess. She was prepared to defend against him, mano a mano.
Now, if he didn't attack her then the clone would stop three meters from him and cock its head. Only in this situation would she cock her head slightly, ready to engage. She would have expected him to charge her, but hey, everyone can be wrong. "So.... I can either stab you or blow you up, Mizukage-sama. Which one's your favorite?" She would only say this if he hadn't attacked the clone on its way to his location, more out of surprise than anything else.
The real Bryn would be staying behind Hana, ready to use the three other spheres to take advantage of any opening Hana could provide that would allow her to hit the clone with one of the three balls of fiery death hovering above them. If the Mizukage was expecting a clone to be enough, he was going to be very surprised today.
