Laughing lightly at everyone's remarks, Suntalia reached over and gently jabbed at Noctis' shoulder and winked at him. Turning her attention to Sherwood, she beamed a smile at him. "The lucky one is me. It's not everyday that I get to make four new friends." Keeping the fact that she normally makes around six to eight new friends on a daily basis, she was happy nonetheless that she got to spend time with this team.

Deciding to change the topic as Noctis seemed embarrassed by Diamante's remark, a remark that will get him a scolding later, Suntalia turned her full attention on to Sherwood. "So what caused you to be late for dinner? Couldn't figure out what to wear?
 Did you get lost? Was there an elderly lady that you helped cross the street? Maybe there was a hot girl that you swooned over while coming here? Please do tell!"
she asked excitedly. Resting her chin in her hands while leaning on her elbows, she shot Sherwood a dimpled smile, while her legs swung back and forth under the table.

OOC: Sorry for the delay! I've been really busy with so much that it's been difficult to be in the right mindset to even post.

Steadying his breath, Savas continued to take deep breaths while the airship continued its path. Hearing Acero's comment about waking him up when they get there, Savas focused his thoughts on the deep void within himself. Emptying all thoughts of the past as well as any problems that may arise today, he continued to take a few deep breaths. The silence was broken to the sudden scratching of pencil upon paper. Opening one eye slightly, he noticed Ribeiro busy drawing something as if to pass the time, while the others also had their eyes closed and appeared to have fallen asleep. Ngggrh...didn't think her hobby would be drawing he thought before refocusing his mind on being empty, while the noise of Ribeiro's drawing provided a kind of calming effect over him.

Thirty minutes later...

"We're arriving at your destination!" yelled the pilot as he began the landing descent into what looked to be a burned down village. Opening his eyes, Savas cracked his neck as the airship touched ground and the back door opened up to let them out. "Ngggrh...guess we're here" he muttered as he stood up and harnessed his weapons on his back. Picking up his pack he walked until he was about to step off. "Let's go" he said simply, glancing back at the others before walking off the airship.

Feeling the morning sun on his face, Savas took this opportunity to look around the razed village. Taking note of the large gaping holes on the northern and eastern side of the wall that surrounded the village, he moved his gaze to the village itself. Here and there, buildings showed signs of being broken into as well as half burned to the ground. Within a few of the buildings, embers still burned, indicating that the attack had happened fairly recent. Signs of bloodshed could be seen on the walls of the buildings as well as a few bodies being seen lying here and there. Lastly, there were many tracks in the ground that showed signs of Beowolves and larger Grimm having come through.

Bending down on one knee, Savas inspected one of the Grimm tracks. Touching the ground briefly, he looked around before turning back to his team. "Tracks are recent. The Grimm are still nearby" he rumbled, letting his deep voice resonate through the desolate village. Kei and Ribeiro, search the village for any survivors. If you find any, send them back to the airship" he said, looking over at Kei and Ribeiro. Turning his gaze to Acero, he motioned him towards the north. Acero, inspect the hole in the northern wall and see if the tracks of the Grimm are coming in the village or out." Turning his attention to the hold in the eastern wall, he rolled his shoulders briefly. "I'll take the eastern wall. Call out if you need help." Not wanting to talk much more, he simply pulled Metatron out of its harness and slung it over his shoulder. "Questions?" he asked, trying not to scowl while talking.

Picture of village. There's a wall surrounding it with a gate at the north and south end of the village.

The semblance could use more wording, but since this is your first character, I'm not going to get too nit picky.

Alright, as I stated earlier, welcome to the RP board. We're going to do a group review of you character so anything that is mentioned below will need to be addressed. That said, I would like to apologize if I seem rude or blunt, but I just like getting straight to the point so we can have this approved and you can RP sooner. That said, here we go:

What's her weight, eye color, hair color, etc? Imagine if she was standing before you and you wanted to explain every little detail about her to a blind person. That's more or less what this is: we can't imagine what she looks like unless you give details.

This needs A LOT more details. What did her family do in Menagerie? Why did she come to Vale? How was her years at Signal? These are just a few things that should be stated. If you need help building the history, then I recommend you read a few other characters and see what other people wrote. Overall, this is very lacking and needs more.

Also, a section that needs more details: What does she like/dislike? What does she do on her spare time? What about her intellect? Is she smart or does she struggle with her studies? Again, imagine a mirror and you are trying to explain every detail to us because we can't visualize her without details.

You're going to need more details here as it's very confusing on what you're trying to say. Are you saying that she can become smoke or an impassable wall? Also, what's the duration of the semblance? Please clarify this more as this needs a lot more details.

Combat Behavior:
More details here as well would help. Every character should have a few combat strengths as well as a few combat weaknesses. Also, seeing that your character is 6'9", it doesn't quite match to have her be a speed based character that is also very stealthy. Her physique fits more with a strength based character so I would either encourage you to make her height shorter or to switch her combat style to be more fitting.

Please state how the two arming swords transforms into each other form. Also, in regards to the dust section: if she uses normal rounds for her shotguns then you don't need to state anything here.

Overall, this character has a lot of good potential, but is just lacking in some much needed details in almost every section. My recommendation would be to look at a few other characters so you can see what other people have written. If you have any questions, feel free to PM me or post in the Character Creation Questions channel on Discord and someone will be happy to help.

First off, welcome to the RP board! We'll be doing a group review of your character so we can get you approved faster. That said, there were a couple small things:

Does he wear anything aside his combat gear? Does he have any casual wear or school wear? Small detail, but would be nice to include something small about it.

Does his semblance require full submersion? If not, what happens then?

That's about it. Overall, this is a very short, but concise character.

"I will have to say that carving that was a rather difficult one, though it was a good challenge" Jett replied as he looked first at Lien and then towards Mythos. Despite not remaking on it, he couldn't help but agree that those two definitely did look similar. Though their body structure was different, there was many similarities within their faces that almost made them seem like they were somehow related. Realizing that he was gawking a little bit too much at the two ladies, Jett quickly averted his eyes to what Xavier was saying.

Smiling broadly to himself as Mythos agreed to let him make something for her, Jett then turned his attention to his carving, though he continued to listen to the others talk. Looking up at Xavier when he offered to be partners with Mythos, Jett had to think about it for a moment. Doesn't seem like a bad idea... he thought, when he suddenly caught Xavier's gaze. Ahhh he thought, taking the hint. "I don't have any issues with that." Focusing briefly as he worked on carving around the legs, he then looked up and gave Lien a warm smile. "Lien and I work really well together so I don't mind being with her. What do you think Lien?" he inquired, cocking his head slightly to the left before taking another sip from his soda.

Looks like we're all mostly short range fighters Savas thought as he listened to each teammate give their explanation. Looks like Ribeiro might be our only real ranged fighter...though her semblance seems interesting... Glancing over at Ribeiro he tried not to look at her menacingly before looking away. He had heard rumors of her semblance as well as other...unscrupulous rumors about what had happened with her last team and why she was without a team. Considering her shy demeanor, he had a hard time believing that she was as sadistic and crazy as the rumors said. Regardless, he was not about to pass off judgment on his teammates simply because of their looks or because of a little rumor. He had seen what that kind of judgment had caused, being a faunus and all, and the last thing he wanted to be was to be like the humans that judge and look down upon faunus alike.

Folding his arms across his massive chest, Savas looked from one team member to the other. "Ngggrh...Well, with our introductions out of the way, we got another thirty minutes before we arrive so best get comfortable" Closing his eyes, he let his thoughts wander off to his previous teammates. As much as he disliked being on a new team, he wanted to at least try and make the best of this new team, if not for himself then for the memories of Auburn and Vigdus. Clenching his fists slightly, he proceeded to take a few deep breaths to help calm him down and prepare himself for their upcoming mission.

OOC: I'll more than likely do a time jump of 30 minutes after each of you post. If you guys want to actually have some dialogue and use this time as a time to get to know one another, then I don't need to do a time jump. I'll leave the option up to you guys so just let me know which one you'd like to do.

Hearing everyone give their introductions, Savas noted that it didn't seem like anyone wanted to talk about themselves or what they've been through. Great...just great. Nothing like a tough shell to try and crack... he thought sourly. Overall, he didn't feel like talking much himself. Each person seemed more focused on either their weapons or on themselves. Regardless, if this team was to work at all, they needed to break this deafening silence and try to communicate with one another.

Taking in a deep breath, Savas looked briefly out the window as the airship steadily made it's way towards their destination. If he remembered correctly, it would take about half an hour before they arrived to their location. Letting out a slow breath, he decided that it was now or never that they try and get to know one another. "Ngggrh" he snorted, looking first at Kei and then at Acero before letting them fall on Ribeiro. "I get it. We're all probably not very thrilled about being on a team together" he said quietly, though loud enough for everyone to hear. "Doesn't change the fact that we're stuck working together for our final year here." Clearing his throat, he despised the attention, but trudged on, changing his gaze between his teammates. "Before we land, do any of you have any questions? It would also be good to know what kind of fighter you are so we can create some kind of strategy." Slamming an armored fist against his lamellar armored chest, he pointed to himself. "You can guess it, but I'm a tank fighter and does best as the vanguard." Switching his gaze over to Acero, he pointed at him with his horn. "You?" he inquired, partially hoping that the mood might lighten up, but wasn't expecting it to.

Perking up excitedly as Sherwood joined the group, Suntalia rested her chin in her hands as she listened to the younger students banter on. Swinging her legs underneath the table, she turned when Diamante showed up to take their orders. Laughing lightly at his dishwater remark, she turned and whispered really loudly to the others. "Don't take the'll make you look all sour like Di Di here." Flashing a dimpled smile towards Diamante, she quickly looked at the menu before handing it back to him. "I'll take an extra large of my usual, my dear. As for paying, that's why you're my partner in crime, right?" she asked, looking innocently at him with a complete straight face.

So, a couple things:

Overall, this semblance is fairly balanced so there wasn't too many issues. The main issue is whether she is able to use her semblance on a melee weapon or not. Aura protects not simply the user, but also the user's weapons/armor. That said, if this was to be used to stop someone's attack, then that would not be allowed as completely stopping an attack is too OP. However, I am alright if she was using it to deflect or parry an attack, within reason. I just want to make sure that is perfectly clear. Also, please state that somewhere in her semblance so it is noted down.

Combat Behavior:
Fairly balanced. I only have one question: how does she fair against ranged fighters?

That's about it. There is a slight concern about the weight of carrying 50 throwing knives since it would weigh around 30lbs for that many, but I'm not going to make a big fuss about that.
