He trusts the inspiration, but not the clock. If someone doesn't help him fill in the blanks quickly, he's going to have to act as best he can.

Ryuki's distracted but manages an answer. "Definitely an ethereal. Dammit we've got an Olympian."

Meanwhile Corat, confident in the build of his vessel, wanders out into the crowd to help keep people out from under wheels.

One of them near the front passenger fender just got knocked over, and another lurch forward would seriously injure her.

And at the sound of the Song the car goes wild, its front end hopping up several feet and nearly but only nearly dislodging the man--the Olympian, if Ryuki is right--with the rope. Sunae would be knocked off her feet but not off the car itself (unless she's got some jiujitsu that I'm not seeing Posting from work.) Corat risks being made to body-slam two people out of the way of the falling front end at Ofanite speed.

The crowd shouts in excitement and panic, and the car responds with more forceful thrashing. Von Galen is headed towards the scene but has to fight the crowd to get there.

Sunae kicks off her heels before jumping onto the roof of the car. She will try to take advantage of the rider's imbalance. She grabs the rope in his hand and kicks him off.

Then she works to control the blessed thing.

Mitch looks up, startled, as the car starts jerking around. Was it especially sensitive to Disturbance or another celestial or Ethereal bound into the form of a car. Unsure, he hustles the woman away who's still a little dazed at her close call and leaves her at first aid booth before returning to his friends. "How do we stop it? Someone is going to get seriously hurt soon."

((I'm seeing a ton of fighting skills but no driving or horsemanship. Therefore...))
The machine beneath her jerks around like it's trying to tear itself apart and dislodge her at the same time. Little wonder that the guy she kicked off it, for all his bravado, is thinking twice about hopping back on.

Von Galen pauses to see what he decides. Ryuki is scanning the crowd but mostly trying to analyze Von Galen and Phaeton.

Corat is approaching the car, easing up to its side, analyzing its movements.

Kane gets a coil of rope from nearby, and begins to approach the vehicle with regular steps, confidence in every stride. His eyes meet Sunae's for a minute.

She's trying. But she doesn't know how to ride this thing. I do. If she knows to get clear ...

He hums as he gets closer, trying to calm the thing. Then he mouths "now" to Sunae, and moves quickly to take her place. His aim is to "ride" as Sunae was, but quietly singing the whole time, so that he can try to calm it down. If that fails, he'll try to "goat-tie" -- upend it, and secure it with the rope to anchor points that can hold it down.

Sunae could sense his movements towards her and she turned her head towards him. As soon as she got his signal she leaps down, making sure to get as close to Von Galen as possible. She will not let him get away and woe be to anyone who tries to stop her.

Mich slides though the crowd like the serpent he is in his true form. He manages to pop out of the crowd near where Sunae lands and keeps his eyes trained on the Ethereal. Letting him slip away in the crowds would be disastrous.

One side of the car seems to be soothed, making Kane's mount relatively easy. The other side continues hopping up and down, forward and back, at least for the moment. It's a bit easier to hold onto though.

He sees some rather purposeful people moving towards him and considers running but pauses. The crowd--perhaps he can still manipulate them to his advantage. And the other ethereal, damn him, brushed himself off and is asking for a boost up. There's nothing up there, but his intention is clear. Phaeton clearly irritates him, but he's game enough to ask the crowd to give him a runway and then cup his hands for the leaping demigod.

Ryuki gives Cameron a thumbs up. "You do you," he says with a sunshiney smile, then leaps off the stage's edge and into the crowd. He moves towards the party, though not with the ease of a snake.

Mich will, if close enough, reach up and attempt to shove him out of the air.

"That's it. Easy, fella." Confidence is everything in calming a horse, Kane knows, and he doesn't expect it's much different with an ethereal . He continues to sing low and gentle as he rides (Singing), all the while projecting calm and assurance (Emote) while still keeping a steady hand on his mount. (Driving, especially if it can also be interpreted as riding.)

As things settle -- or even if they don't -- Kane looks for something solid and well-rooted to anchor the vehicle to, an improvised hitching post he can use once he knows it won't panic the spirit inside.

(OOC: If in the course of calming the spirit, Kane uses three "artistic" skills in a row -- certainly the Singing, maybe even the Emote since it's a performance -- he'll regenerate 1 Essence.)
