As the cost of living grows, more women are becoming female transit warriors. In past history, amazons, war maidens and female warriors relied on pure endurance, horsepower and chartered vehicles as travel to remote battlefields.
Enter Public Transit. The push for more commuters is more than ever with efforts to battle climate change. But, that wasn’t the only problem.
Violence On Public Transit
“I witnessed first hand the violence on public transit.” Ruby Kexadia was on a Brauryn night-time transit bus when an unruly passenger attacked the driver. The commander of the Kladnestra Company talked the passenger down and dodged his attempted strikes . The assailant became exhausted and Kexadia took him down. He surrendered, unable to match Kexadia’s speed, agility and endurance.
Kexadia encouraged her fellow warrior sisters to save money and take transit to their battles. “We’re facing tough challenges battling our budgets lately. They are among the toughest battles and we added public transit to our training regime.”
It wasn’t easy at first. Some were uncomfortable of the looks they got from other passengers. “We train hard year after year and our bodies become stronger, more muscular,” said Kexadia. “That was one of the adjustments we all had to go through. Not everyone is used to seeing strong women in battle-ready armor.”
As more female warriors took public transit, the city saw a drop in transit-related violence. “We were about to raise police presence on all trains and buses, when we saw the data,” said Brauyn City Counselor Nik Papadas who also serves as Chairman of Transit Operations. “It gave us pause in our approach and we engaged with the Kladnestra Warriors. I’m all for organic solutions.”
The Emergence Of Female Transit Warriors
Brauryn City and Kladnestra partnered to start a female transit warriors pilot project aimed to improve overall commuter interactions and deter violence peacefully. All participating female warriors receive discounts on monthly and yearly passes.
After the first year of the project, transit violence fell below pre-COVID levels. Female-led security companies saved lives and budgets. “I used to spend so much money on transportation before I started taking the transit to each of my battles,” said Nya Xythos. “Now, I have more resources to invest in my training and gear, not to mention the fun skirmish that I can take part in once in a while.”
“I love taking transit because it gives me time to mentally prepare for battle,” said Lira Arctos. “I can meditate and focus without the stress and distractions of driving. I used to experience road rage and had to pay a ton for cars I’ve crushed.”
Social Connections For Female Transit Warriors
In addition to improving safety and comfort, the use of public transit has also helped to reduce the environmental impact of the female warriors’ travel. As more warrior companies adopt eco-conscious policies, female warriors have been eager to adopt more sustainable modes of transportation.
As more and more female warriors take advantage of public transit, it has also opened up new opportunities for socialization and networking among the female warriors of different tribes and companies. Many of them use their commute time to catch up on news, share battle strategies, and even form alliances with other groups.
In addition to meeting fellow warriors, public transit also provides a unique opportunity for socializing and dating. With many warriors traveling to and from battles, the likelihood of meeting someone with similar interests and values increases on public transit. The Kladnestra Company’s Tamsin Roarke shared her own experience of meeting her partner on a bus ride to a battle. “We struck up a conversation and discovered we had mutual friends in the warrior community. We exchanged numbers and, well, the rest is history,” she said, showing off her wedding wing.
Other warriors have used public transit to expand their social circle, make new friends and explore new places. “Taking the transit has made me more aware of the world around me. I get to see different parts of the city and appreciate the diversity of its people,” said Princess Kali of the Hyperborean Kingdom.
Female Transit Warriors Make Transit Stronger For All
The Brauryn Transit Executive Commitee is already planning to expand the program and make it permanent. Next year, new additions to their transit fleet will have more female-friendly amenities. This includes installing larger, more comfortable seating, better lighting, and even dedicated spaces for women to change and prepare before heading into battle.
Other cities outside of Brauryn have expressed interest in adopting the female transit warrior model to discover synergies among their passengers, including male warriors, space commuters and digital avatars.
As for Kexandia, she is quite proud of her contributions. “People have been so kind to us now. I’ve been asked about our training programs and I think it might be fun to teach the ways of the Kladnestra Warrior.” In fact, the Kladnestra Warriors have started to franchise their training program in around Brauryn city, offering courses so everyone can learn their unique self-defense techniques and skills.
Overall, the shift towards public transit has been a positive development for female transit warriors living in Brauryn. It has allowed them to save money, reduce their environmental impact, and improve their safety and comfort while traveling to huge battles. With the continued growth of the Amazonian population in urban centers, it looks like this trend is here to stay.
