The lights in the vault are turned off, and only the flashes from their weapons are seen. As Ozpin hits her with his cane, Cinder is knocked back and grips the floor to stop her momentum, partially melting the surface beneath her.
Cinder summons several glass projectiles before firing them at Ozpin, but he easily smashes them out of the air with superhuman speed. Ozpin quickly rushes her, rapidly hitting her with his cane and knocking her back yet again. However, Cinder uses her Maiden power to halt herself mid-air, unleashing a great force.
Ozpin slams his cane into the floor, creating a spherical barrier around him. As Cinder fires a powerful fire-based attack at him, the Beacon headmaster dashes at her, his barrier protecting him from the attack. Before Ozpin can reach her, the screen fades to white, leaving the former's fate unknown as later Cinder leaves the vault and heads to the top of the tower.
