    On a continent far away from the known world of Remnant, 6 nations coexist in harmony, each representing a different aspect: Lumiere (aura), Aquilla (ice/water), Pyre (fire), Verderon (earth), Helium (air), and the governing nation Haldis (harmony). In Haldis a school exists to train young men and women, human and faunus to become huntsmen and huntresses. This school's name is Deskor. The story starts here, among a group of freshman students at the academy.

    • Name: Arilynne 'Ari' Fairchild

      Age: 17
    • Gender: Female
    • Race: Human
    • Nation: Aquilla
    • History:
      Ari's much older brother, Linus, was a Hunter as was his father and his father's father. The Fairchild name is Hunter name. Ari idolized her brother, dreaming to one day be like him. There was a strong relationship between the two of them, despite Linus often being drawn away by his duties as a Hunter. Ari did not get along well with her father, who had once been a warrior, and whose experiences had caused him to become withdrawn and recluse. Her mother, while loving and kind, was a tremulous woman who was extraordinarily soft spoken and who, while never verbally saying so, resented Linus for his choice of career.
      Ari entered into a combat school and trained in fighting and the use of her Semblance and weapon, eager to follow in Linus's footsteps. It was while she was still in school that she lost her brother while he was away on a mission. In the time following her brother's death, Ari became quiet, brooding, and depressed. For months, she remained solitary, rejecting social contact and lashing out at those who dared pity her or offer her sympathy. Over time, her emotions developed into an all consuming anger at the Grimm, her father, who remained as reclusive as ever, her mother, who spent most of her time grieving, and the world in general for taking her brother from her.
      Her quest to become more like Linus turned into a quest for revenge. Ari's goal became to make sure that she killed as many monsters in her life time as she could, ensuring that her brother had not died in vain. What she missed however, was that her brother did not live simply to kill monsters, but to protect those the Grimm targeted.
      Using her anger to drive herself to new levels of training and power, she graduated from combat school and was accepted into Deskor. There, she hoped to become stronger and more combat ready. Ari's father was abusive and prone to drunken rages, which caused her to wander the streets in order to avoid going home. This happened quite often after Linus died. During her wandering, she got into quite few street fights. This led to her gaining numerous scars and a street-savvies that she normally would not have.
    • Description:
      [​IMG]

      Ari possesses a startling combination of red hair and blue eyes. Like most red heads, she has very pale skin. Physically, she is rather pretty. She is tall, thin, and lithe, a combination that seems to clash with her abilities. Because of her body structure, her muscles, while not extraordinarily large, appear to be very defined. She has numerous scars from both her father's abuse and the street fights she got into. Ari chooses to wear a white tank top and loose black pants with black boots. Occasionally, she will wear a hooded jacket, but mostly she goes without. She is usually seen wearing a pair of gloves with the fingers cut off. Under the gloves, on the backs of each hand, is a tattoo of her family emblem in the colors below.
    [​IMG]
    • Weapon:
      Ari's primary weapon comes in the form of a pair of spiked gauntlets, Vulcan and Mars. Her usual gloves serve to protect her hand from the metal of the weapon.
      When Ari enters into combat, she activates retractable blades in the gauntlet by forming a fist. This puts pressure on the pressure plates within, setting the gears for the blades into motion. These blades are knifelike and three to four inches in length. There is also a secondary trigger that is activated and deactivated when she solely moves her middle finger down to her palm. This causes the gauntlets to shift into long range mode. There is a port in the back of the gauntlets that allow for either the insertion of dust or bullets, though she prefers dust. The weapon is then fired by the curling of her first finger.
    • [​IMG]
    • [​IMG]
    • (Basic build [first photo] and blade [second photo] concepts. Ari's are more durable, advanced, and personalized)
    • Fighting Style: Ari prefers hand-to-hand combat where she can use her monstrous strength to pound her enemy into dust, simultaneously shredding them with her blades. She is very skilled in an adapted form of martial arts that focuses on utilizing her strength for more powerful blows. Occasionally, she will use her range mode in combat.
    • Semblence: 'Juggernaut'- Ari is incredibly strong, as shown in her offensive attacks. She can lift objects and deliver blows that should never be within her abilities. However, this strength factors into a defensive capability as well. When she plants herself, she becomes neigh unmovable, able to withstand inordinate amounts of force and halt most attacks. However, this does cause a detriment to her speed, due to the locking of her muscles.
      When using her Semblance, Ari becomes able to take large amounts of damage due to the lessening of the damage effects. For example, if she were to take a sword blow, it would not cut nearly as deeply as intended and would only strike deeply enough to draw blood. This is because of the internal strengthening of her aura, which, in conjunction with her monstrous strength, creates a sort of inner shield, protecting her from more than superficial damage. However, the more powerful the blows she deflects, the more energy she expends. (*Note, this part of her semblance only appears after she suffers severe emotional trauma at the time of Garret's kidnapping)
    • Concept of Ari's full strength (maximum ability)
    • [​IMG]
    • STATS:
    • Power 7/10
    • Speed 8/10
    • Defense 7/10 (*When using Juggernaut, Ari's speed becomes a 5 and her def. a 10)
    • Endurance 5/10
    • Stealth 1/10
    • Aura 5/10
    • Close Combat 8/10
    • Long Range 4/10
    • Hand to Hand 10/10
    • Personality:
      Broken and hurting on the inside, Ari has developed a mask of anger to hide behind. After the death of her brother, Linus, she became withdrawn and refused contact with the outside world. When she finally emerged from grief, it was with all the presence and forbearance of a thunder storm. She prefers to push people away with her rudeness rather than let them get close. After all, if they are close, it will hurt all the more if she loses them.
      She despises her birth name and prefers to go by Ari. Her greatest desire is for someone to get close enough to see the hurt inside and help her deal with it. This is more of a subconscious desire since she has made a conscious decision to push everyone away.
    • After her personality change, she is still a spitfire, but not as confrontational as before. She hardly trusts anyone aside from her brother and Garret and is extremely loyal to both.

    Name: Cerris Celheart

    Age: 17

    Gender: Female

    Race: Human

    History: ???

    Description: Short Pink hair and blue eyes, white skin, 5’8. wears a pink t-shirt and knee length pink skirt with white and the end, pink knee high boots and white leggings. Emblem on her right shoulder. wears red heart shaped earings.

    Emblem:

    [​IMG]

    Weapon: Heart Break: Twin Swords that curve that (when placed side by side) resemble a heart. the blades are gold colored and the handle is pink, with small hearts imprinted on the handles as well.

    Fighting Style: Cerris uses Heart Break mainly for fast strikes and prairies, but isn’t able to block due to her weapon choice.

    Semblance: Cerris can create a small, defensive bubble around her (and, of course, it is shaped like a heart), deflecting most weapons and objects. the only things that can enter are light, heat, and air. This however drains her Aura and massive levels, so she can only put it up for about a minute at full strength

    Name: Freya Tyr

    Age: 17
    Gender: Female
    Race: Horse faunus
    History: Freya was born to a wealthy family in Lumiere and always had the best. The best clothing, the best food and the best training. Masters were hired from far and wide to train her in the way of the fist. Each teacher taught her all they could and once she defeated them they were let go. Always hungry for new techniques and new opponents Freya left with her parents blessings to become a huntress.
    Description: Freya is above average height for a girl her age. She has a strong physique and skin roughness more in line with a street thug than a noble. Her hair is blond and her eyes are blue. She walks with equal parts elegance and arrogance.
    Weapon: None
    Fighting Style: Freya charges in with great speed and seeks to bring her opponent down with rapid unarmed attacks. As she has no skill in anything but hand to hand Freya seeks to keep her enemies at arms length.
    Semblence: Freya can use her aura to increase the hardness and effectiveness of different parts of her body. She can use this on her arms to hit harder, her legs to jump higher. She can even focus all of her semblance into one area which allows that area to stand up against the sharpest blades and even the biggest guns.

    • Name: Tien Lung
    • Age: 49
    • Gender: Male
    • Race: Human
    • History: Tien was born to a poor family in Pyre. They all slept in a single room and rarely had enough money for electricity or running water. Tien hated his lot in life and sought to carve a piece of the world for himself. He did odd jobs to earn enough money to buy a cheap old blade. With this blade in hand Tien joined the army. He quickly stood out because of his charisma and determination. After a few years of serving in the army Tien met his future wife Sonya in an undiscovered island off the coast of Helium. She fell in love with his charisma and drive and he fell in love with her intellect and passion. By the time they wed Tien had become a rather high ranking soldier in Pyre's army. A few years after that they had a daughter by the name of Amelia. One day Sonya returned to her home town and never came back. The village had been sacked by bandits. When he heard of this Tien had the bandit's hideout utterly annihilated. It was then that he realized what he needed to do. He did all he could to advance and eventually made it to the top of Pyre's military. When a woman asked him for assistance with a coup Tien agreed. Using his tactical knowledge and power Tien made sure that the coup would succeed. He then went to Haldi and aided in the conquest of the country.
    • Description: Tien has white hair on his head and face. Though stress has aged him prematurely he still has a strong physique and regal bearing. He dresses in a white and gold outfit that is designed to get opponents to attack him instead of his soldiers on the battlefield.
    • Weapon: Tien wields the blade known as Wind Cutter. It is a Dadao (Hand and a half saber) That has stores of wind dust within the hilt. When swung it can send a slash of cutting wind at who it was swung at. When used right before hitting an object the wind will create a buffer between Wind Cutter and whatever it was about to hit. This is good against attacks that rely upon hitting either Tien or his blade. Tien also has a gauntlet on his left hand with multiple vials of dust. He can channel the dust through the blade to add an extra effect onto the wind slash. It can also be put on the blade to do anything from setting it on fire to making it electric.
    • Fighting Style: Tien likes to strike fast and hard. He wants his opponent to die with the least amount of pain. If the battle looks to be a long one Tien will not hesitate to call in backup and attack with infused wind slashes to try to overwhelm the opponent with attacks.
    • Semblance: Tien's semblance is known as far sight. This allows Tien to observe places he is not currently at. For him to do this he must either have seen the place or know its approximate location. He can observe an area to get a view of an area near it and then view that area. Using this he is able to figure out enemy placements and make sure his daughter is doing her school work without him having to actually be there. Someone can tell when an area is being observed because there will be a small blue ball around the size of a marble floating in the area. If this ball is destroyed Tien can no longer see the area and can't use far sight for a few minutes. When he is using far sight Tien is much less observant of what is happening around his body.

    OTHER CHARACTERS CONTINUED:


    Name
    : Linus Fairchild

    Age: 23-24

    Gender: Male

    Race: Human

    Nation: Aquilla

    History:
    Linus grew up in Aquilla, dreaming to be a Hunter like his father. He was nearly through combat school when his father took his fall from grace and turned to alcohol. The Fairchild name, built upon the efforts of his grandfather and great grandfather, was disgraced. Even though it was not a famous Hunter name like some others, Hunting and nobility still ran within the family. Determined to redeem it, Linus studied harder than ever, focusing on becoming the best of the best. When he was not in school, he was spending time with his younger sister, Arilynne, whom he fondly called Ari, hoping to set a better example for her than his reclusive mother and drunken father.
    After graduating combat school, he attended Deskor in order to fulfil his dream of becoming a hunter. He became well respected by his peers and professors. He visited home whenever he could, keeping his sister safe from the instability of their home. When he was two years into his time at the academy, Ari entered combat school and his visits became fewer and further between, as they both were becoming busy and as she was spending less time at home, he did not feel the need to protect her as strongly.
    Linus graduated Deskor near the top of his class and was immediately set to hunting. This caused him to be gone for long periods of time, and he rarely saw his beloved sister, though he made every effort to see her as often as his career allowed. Eight months after he graduated, he went missing.
    He had been sent out with his former team to root out a Grimm infestation that had come dangerously close to a local town. Not an hour after the confirmation of landing on site, the team sent a distress signal. When backup arrived, nearly an hour and a half later, they were too late. Two of the four were dead and the other two missing, leaving nothing but blood in the snow to prove their ever having been there. Linus and his teammate, the two who were missing, were reported to be dead, as it was reasoned that there was far too much blood lost for them to have survive and no bodies were recovered. Linus’s teammate died from his wounds soon after being rescued. Linus, however, clung to survival. He had suffered a terrible wound on his head and lost enough blood that it should have killed him, but his will to live proved to be stronger. A week after the battle, Linus finally awoke, having been well cared for by a hermit. He was alive. However, the blow to his head had caused severe memory loss.
    Alone, and unable to remember more than his name and certain inherent things, such as brief flashes of faces and impressions, Linus was lost within his own mind and within the land he had formerly known. He remained with the hermit for two years, striving to remember who he was, slowly rebuilding upon the foundation of his training, until, one day, he remembered Deskor, a place he knew had some significance in his life. He made it his goal to reach Deskor in the hope of it triggering further memories.

    Description:
    [​IMG]
    Tall, thin, and lean, Linus has the build of a fighter who focuses more on speed than strength and power. He has strawberry blonde hair, nowhere near the vibrant red of his sister’s. His eyes, however, are the same icy blue. Linus was usually seen smiling before the loss of his memory. His accident made him slightly more brooding, however, he managed to retain his kind and optimistic personality. Though his smiles are fewer, he still manages to charm others and light up a room with them. His skin is pale but not as much as Ari’s. They resemble each other most in the shape of their eyes and faces, both possessing an angular bone structure. This has caused them both to be described as beautiful people, though Linus is usually called handsome.
    Linus’s most notable feature is his abundance of tattoos.
    Linus is most often seen wearing black pants and tall boots accompanied by a sleeveless white shirt. Over everything he wears a black trench coat. His sword scabbards lay across his back.

    Weapon: Linus’s personal weapons are a pair of swords named Diana and Hestia. One appears to be silver and the other gold. They shift into a pair of semiautomatic pistols. Hestia is designed to work well with fire-related dust in both forms while Diana uses ice-related dust. Both pistols are capable of firing regular bullets.
    Fighting Style: Linus is a close combat fighter, proficient in using his swords in the Florentine, or dual weapon, style. He prefers to use bursts of his semblance to disrupt enemy attacks and throw them off balance before using his swords in a flurry of devastating attacks. He usually reserves his pistols for opening up a fight with numerous opponents, using them to whittle down the numbers with a flurry of bullets before entering the fray. These too are used as close range weapons, firing at a maximum distance of 200 meters.

    Semblance: Linus isable to create exceptionally strong aura shields. He is also able to project these shields away from himself in order to encompass a radius of about 50 meters in a dome shape. He can also project them onto someone else, leaving himself defenseless. If he uses his shield for long periods of time, its effects weaken as time passes. He prefers to use it in short bursts during close combat.

    • Name: Maugrim Fenris

    • Age: 38

    • Gender: Male

    • Race: Wolf Faunus

    • History:
    Maugrim was a member of a militant group of Faunus, much like the White Fang, who did a numbe of illegal things in th nme of equality. He left his family when his daughter was still young, looking to devote his time to working to build this group into what he and his fellows believed it should be, a domineering force of change. His wife disagreed and told him that his family was more important than his dream. In the end, however, he told her that he was fighting for a world in which their daughter could be free of the trampling of humans, and left.
    Despite his zealousness, however, Maugrim began to realize that a world run by these men was not where he wanted his daughter to live, and that, perhaps, a more peaceful approach was needed. He escaped the organization and joined the military of Haldis. He hoped that by rising through the ranks, he would gain enough sway in the military and government to make some changes. He quickly rose to the rank of Captain, becoming a well-respected officer and good leader of both his human and faunus subordinates. He has not seen hi family sine leaving so long ago, as he is too ashamed to face them until he can make up for his wrongdoings.
    He survived the strike from Pyre and now fights against the Pyran oppression.
    • Description:
    Maugrim is about six feet two inches tall. He possesses the thin but solid build of an experienced fighter. Maugrim has long black hair, which he keeps pulled back in a decorative holder. The shorter stands often fall about his face, which causes him to look younger than he is. His eyes are silver with slitted pupils. On top of his head are two black wolf ears. His canines are longer than those of a human. His face is also sharper and more defined. He is very wolfish in appearance and obviously not human.
    Maugrim usually wears armor on his upper half and loose military pants that enable him to move quickly on his feet. His armor is light due to his fighting style, which focuses on dancing nimbly through combat and maneuvering his weapon in close combat. His boots are tall, covering his calves, and lightweight, aiding his movement. His military uniform is somewhat hidden by his armor.

    • Weapon: Maugrim wields a sansetsukon that utilizes Dust. He prefers lightning as it is more accurate than the others. The haft of the spear breaks apart into three segments, which allows Maugrim to use it in an almost whiplike fashion. Each segment is connected by a thin but strong metal wire. The spear itself is made of a silvery metal and is called Varg Mani. He also carries a military issue sidearm, though he rarely uses it.
    • Fighting Style: Maugrim is a quick and agile fighter who can use both forms of his weapon without trouble. His weapon, Varg Mani, is able to deliver an electric shock on contact, which he uses to his advantage. He is also very cold blooded when fighting, and will kill without hesitation.
    • Semblance: Regeneration- Maugrim can regenerate from injury.

    • Gender: male
    • Race: Human
    • History:
      Lore's Family, the Vandires, were a noble house in the northern regions of Pyre. Vandire was an old-fashioned and militaristic house, who still believed in the concept of "Winner take All." Lorcidious' father, Goge Vandire, was the Embodiment of this, and his every move was to better the house by any means necessary. In addition to organizing a large and influential - if not exactly rich - crime ring, Goge also buckled down on his only Child, the mother having died during childbirth. though he gave his son an education and (comparative) wealth, he also forced him to hours upon hours of combat lessons, and enforced his rule with whips and chains.
      One thing promoted by the Vandires was Slavery, who traded slaves as well as kept some around the household. when such things were banned, the Vandires dropped the trading grudgingly, but kept the Household slaves, rechristened 'servants.' as Lore transitioned into Manhood, he fell in love with a slave girl by the name of Carya. they lived happily for a while, but when Goge discovered this, he killed Carya in a flamboyant, painful way. Lore, any concept of love for his father lost, helped the slaves and destroyed the Vandire Estate. the next two years Lore lived by himself, a wanderer, trying to find a way to redeem his Family name. one day, he learned of the Huntsman Academy by the name of Deskor, and decided that was what he wanted to do. using some of his father's tricks, he Faked a few papers and joined the student body.
      Lore has forced himself to forget his past, taking the role of someone has been a traveler his whole life. he lives the persona of carefree boy, as that's what he wish he could be.
