Title: Amane Petrichor
Post by: Inexhaustive on March 15, 2018, 03:04:31 PM
CHARACTER

Name: Amane Mathoera Petrichor

Age: 18, born the 20th of Arashi (April)

Species and Gender: Human Female

Occupation: First Year Student at Beacon, Explorer

Appearance: Amane is 164cm tall, weighs 45kg, and has light skin. She has shoulder length blonde hair and amber eyes.

While Amane mixes and matches her apparel, her clothing of choice in the field consists of a dark grey weather resistant peacoat over a black polo shirt, dark brown jeans, a black beanie on her head, black moto boots, a dark brown scarf, an expensive watch on her left wrist, a backpack with a white nose-and-mouth gas mask hanging from it, and a leather belt that's worn interchangeably. She does not make any modifications to her school uniform unless its for things like weather conditions.

Amane also has a collection of expensive men’s colognes, which she wears on occasion. She normally speaks with a British accent but can do a general American one well too.

Because of her semblance, her profile picture in the Beacon database is just a standard grey placeholder figure.

History: Amane was born in Vale to not one, but two very successful scientists who were killed when she was little, assassinated in broad daylight on a highway as they were driving. The assassin, who was never caught, shot them both from opposing traffic with a silenced pistol while driving at high speeds. After ballistic experts confirmed that the level of sophistication and technique used was of huntsman level, an investigation was opened which led to the discovery that Amane's parents were involved in illegal activities and were assassinated when they wanted out to raise their child. Because of this, a large case involving a lot of lawyers ensued when it came time to decide what to do with the resources of the deceased and while it was eventually settled that money for damages would be seized and Amane would only inherit the remaining twenty percent of it, twenty percent of what the Petrichors had was still worth quite a lot.

As the cases were going on, Amane was taken in by the Mathoera family who were both also very successful scientists that respected her parents, even after they learned the results of the investigation. After quickly bonding with her new sister Iris, the two grew up together and as the years passed, Iris was invited to a school for highly gifted scientists. Seeing her sister and best friend moving up in the world, Amane resolved to do something that helped people too. She considered being a scientist but eventually decided it just wasn’t what she wanted to do. So, after her family told her they would support whatever she wanted to do, she decided to become a huntress and signed up for Signal Academy.

Even before discovering her semblance, Amane was really low-key and didn't like to attract attention, but was an excellent student who put in a lot of effort to train and study, even attending an extracurricular class to learn aura detection. However, she would slightly downplay her skills and never do anything flashy during demonstrations and duels, only getting passing scores so she doesn’t attract attention. After she discovered her semblance, she was even less there in the minds of others.

After graduating from Signal, Amane took an year off to work in the field, collecting lab samples for Iris, who graduated early and was immediately hired to work at a laboratory. This year for Amane consisted mostly of exploring ruins, but her searches have occasionally led her to exotic parts within the black market. Eventually though, Iris pushed her to go to Beacon so she can make friends other than Iris and finish her training to become a fully-fledged huntress.

Personality: Amane is a very grounded person who never panics or breaks composure, even in the midst of chaos. As somebody who is highly perceptive and excellent at collecting information, she is often well-prepared for any situation she's getting into and prefers to win her battles before they start with as little fighting as possible, whether it's in combat or in an argument. She is also willing to delve into morally grey areas, but advocates and has faith in government structure and 'the system' with the belief that a smoothly flowing civilization is what's best for mankind. Amane understands that this could be considered hypocritical, and while she believes it is important to establish a code to live by, she also understands that treating things as sacred will only put her at a disadvantage.

The true source of Amane's high-functioning mental capabilities is not a genius intellect, nor is it through excessive studying, but love. Underneath her rock-hard, calculating demeanor and questionable morality, is a person who truly loves all things in the world despite its harsh realities. Even if she may not like something/someone, or has negative feelings towards them as a person, Amane always appreciates the beauty and perfection of things simply for existing. This love makes her someone who not only learns, but forms a deep connection and understanding with everything around her.

Even though Amane is a quiet introvert, she is an empathetic people-person who relates to others and puts herself in their shoes to understand or read them. Seeing a life with stories and love in every single person, she never forgets somebody's name, and not just theirs, but the names of the important people in their lives too. Her mindset and decision-making is not restricted to just logic and her calculations, but also taking into account the feelings of those around her. She is extremely loyal, but not to a fault and will never give away every secret or contingency up her sleeve. She trusts those she considers friends and will put her faith in them, always looking out for them but making sure they don't do something they'll regret. She also never lies to people under the guise of protecting them, because she has faith that they can learn to handle the truth and carry on with living their lives.

Despite having the intuition of a woman and clearly defining herself as female, Amane tends to carry herself and perform her actions in a very manly way, from how she talks, or fights, or drives, all the way down to how she changes her clothes or how she sits. She enjoys putting herself out of her comfort zone, being someone who takes chances and has a mindset to win big instead of losing small. She also lives life to a high standard and enjoys playing video games in moderation, listening to house music, working on or riding her motorcycle, mixing cocktails to drink, and occasionally smoking weed. She dislikes greasy food, public restrooms, and disorganization in general. Finally, Amane does have a bit of a humorous side, occasionally cracking jokes and video game references while still maintaining her usual expressionless face.

Aura and Semblance: Aura Color: Invisible | Abilities: Detection
Semblance: People will forget what Amane looks like if they don’t see her for twelve hours. She also doesn’t appear on camera. While this ability is passive and cannot be controlled, those who knew her before her semblance was activated can remember what she looks like. One drawback of her semblance is that it slows down her aura regeneration by 50%.

Combat Behavior: Amane is someone who fights in a highly disciplined manner with pure precision and efficiency. Highly skilled at controlling her rifle and aiming in a short time frame, she can land two to the chest and one to the head within a single three round burst from thirty meters away. Her movements are devoid of anything extra as she moves around with agility, her reactions are impressive, and she’s great at strategy and decision-making in the spur of the moment. Her environmental sense is also a major asset, which she uses on top of her aura detection to predict enemies and hit various “oddshots”. With her throwing stars, Amane uses them very strategically and is able to throw them in curved trajectories.

However, Amane is very lightweight and not the strongest person out there so in a match of physical strength, many people can overtake her. She also lacks short term stamina and defensive aura capacity, which gives her trouble with drawn out short-distance battles and makes her a glass cannon. Finally, Amane doesn’t have much experience working in a team, but she understands this and is willing to cooperate with team members.
Spoiler: ShowHide
1.5x damage in tournament threads. Write damage values as normal, I'll do the calculations.


Techniques: ShowHide


Holding Angles - Amane likes to hold enemy bottlenecks from covered firing positions, attempting to angle herself and narrowing down the bottleneck to around 20-30cm wide. Because of the narrow gap to shoot through, Amane’s fast reactions come into play here in order to mow down any enemies passing through the bottleneck.
[spoiler=Example](https://i.imgur.com/F6jN7Jx.png)


One-Tap - AP rounds are expensive. Despite using an automatic rifle, Amane prefers to terminate enemies with one round to the head whenever the opportunity is presented.

Collateral Damage - Amane loves shooting targets that are lined up.

Prefiring - Amane is one who acts instead of reacts. Using the pings from her aura detection along with her environmental senses to deduce areas with a high chance of enemies, Amane keeps her gun pointed at where they are most likely to pop out, and can immediately fire at areas she knows where enemies are, even if she hasn’t seen them. Because of Amane’s trigger discipline however, there is usually a fifty millisecond delay for her to confirm that it is in fact an enemy.

Recoil Control - Amane not only has an excellent grip and stance to improve the grouping of her shots, she controls it with a fine level of precision, allowing the recoil deliver her line of fire to the next target. She mainly uses this for hitting a target’s head right after hitting its chest.

Spray Transfer - Amane is highly capable of changing targets without letting go of the trigger. Against two enemies placed about ten meters away and a maximum distance of three meters apart from each other, Amane is able to terminate the first one with her automatic rifle, then accurately turn to target the other within the .125 second interval of a next bullet being chambered.

Triple-Burst Failure to Stop - Amane’s signature technique, her version of failure to stop that is executed within a single three round burst from her automatic rifle. The first shot is either placed in the targets center of gravity near its navel, or on one side of its sternum. If placed in the center of gravity, she controls the recoil of her gun to let it instantly place the next shot to the target’s sternum. If the first shot is placed on one side of the sternum, she grounds the recoil to place the next shot in the other side of the target’s sternum. With the purpose of the first two shots being to stop the target in its tracks, Amane once against uses the recoil of her gun to place the third shot into the target’s “T-Zone” to turn off its lights. Amane is capable of doing this to enemies up to 30m away[/spoiler]
Techniques (Not ready for field use yet!): ShowHide

Cross Termination - "A group of enemies should not be seen as individuals, but a single group to be flowed through."
Somewhat a more advanced version of Spray Transfer, Cross Termination is a technique to use against tight groups of enemies where the user doesn’t let go of the trigger of an automatic weapon, but controls it, making every single bullet deliver a headshot to a different enemy. Amane needs to practice this technique a little more before it is ready to use in the field.

Crippling - “If you can’t find a weak point, make one.”
With Beacon Academy comes tougher, tankier enemies in the future. Amane developed this technique in preparation of that, which involves firing at certain kinematic weak points at the right times to cripple their movement, for example, the fulcrums of any strenuous actions the enemy might be performing, or even their center of gravity. Due to it being recently developed, Amane is not ready to use this in the field yet.


Equipment

Primary Weapon: A powerful, integrally suppressed automatic rifle with a holographic smart sight, foldable stock, and a strap for easy carry. It is capable of medium-range sniping and has a twenty-round magazine with three spares that Amane loads with armor-penetrating bullets (Each one costing the equivalent of 2$). However, the rifle requires a specially durable internal system in order to fire these bullets, and cannot be made to transform.
Spoiler: ShowHide

Weapon History: As someone with a preference for practicality, Amane started out with an ordinary rifle and slowly customized it to fit her use case the best. The armor-piercing bullets come from some of her and Iris's contacts in the weapons department of the company they work at. They are well tested but are still officially considered experimental.

Secondary Weapon: Mark XIX Desert Eagle .50AE with 7 round magazine capacity and 1 spare, holstered on her left leg.

Weapon History: "You should totally learn to shoot that thing."

Tertiary Weapon: Tactical Bowie Knife, sheath strapped around her right leg.

Concealed Carry Weapon: FN Five-seveN with a suppressor and spare magazine. Kept inside her coat.

Combat Utilities: 3x tactical high-explosive throwing stars, 1x smoke grenade, 1x flashbang, 1x incendiary grenade. Amane will also carry more powerful explosives such as breaching charges or remote mines if she's knowingly going into a situation that calls for it.

Backpack: Climbing gear, various equipment/supplies for collecting lab samples, flares, compact multi-tool (pliers, tweezers, awl, wire cutter, various shape screwdrivers, coarse and fine files, scissor, can opener, serrated blade, bottle opener), compass, flashlight, duct tape, steel wire, pens, notepad, lighter, water purification tablets, mirror, thermal blanket, lockpick set, compact parachute, first aid kit, bobby pins, two tourniquets, scroll and earbuds, and a water bottle.

The backpack has a white nose-and-mouth gas mask hanging off of it and a portable signal booster. There is also a device mounted on the shoulder strap that scans her surroundings and generates navigational data, which it can beam as a holographic minimap in front of her when a circular button is pressed.

Vehicles:
Amane usually gets around on her black Ducati Panigale 1199 S motorcycle with an installed Termignoni racing exhaust system.

Office:
After seeing results, the company Amane works at also gave her a spare medium-sized private side office to use, though she doesn't go there often. It has a very contemporary design with polished wood walls, a desk and a computer, along with a meeting area with two black leather couches across from each other and a table between with a small potted rare cactus on it.

I'd also like a passing reference to any other clothes she would wear, combat apparel or school uniform? Are they any different peacoat? Any sorted of added armour plating? What is her opinion on having to wear the uniform and does she modify it at all?

But that's mostly personal preference, +1

Along with King, I would like to welcome you to the board! Everything looks good to me, but I do have a couple questions in regards to her semblance:

1. When you say it's passive, does this mean that it's on all the time? Or that it sporadically comes on/off and she has no control over it? If it's the first option, then I would like to see at least one drawback to having it activated all the time.
2. Is there a range limit to her semblance ability?

Overall, I really like the concept of her semblance, but it would be nice for just a little bit more details in regards to it (such as the ones I've listed). As it stands right now, the potentials for how this semblance can be used are tremendous so a drawback on it would be good to help balance it out a bit.

Post by: Inexhaustive on March 20, 2018, 01:20:52 AM
Thank you for your comments!

1. By passive, I mean its on all the time, and it’s not something she can turn off. While I believe that in itself already comes with a few drawbacks, I added that her semblance reduces her aura regeneration rate by 30%.
2. There is no range limit on her semblance.
Title: Re: Amane Petrichor
Post by: jjb2158 on March 20, 2018, 02:11:39 PM
Okay, so I discussed this with the other staff as having a passive semblance is something we don't see regularly come through here.

The main issue we saw was the fact that people would forget what she looked like after 2 hours. The problem with that is that it basically makes it so that everyone on the board is going to have to start off by asking "who are you again?" since they won't remember her by her looks. That also proves problematic in regards to whoever ends up on your team as every morning they're going to wake up and possibly freak out thinking that there's a random stranger in their room before realizing its their teammates. And so, as enjoyable as it might be to have yourself play the role of that, this does make it much more difficult for everyone else on the board.

At first, we thought about saying that you will need to change it from a passive semblance to an activated one instead. However, as we discussed it, there is a solution for you to keep it passive and still have this work for you. My proposition is that you increase the time duration before someone forgets her from 2 hours to 12 hours instead for these reasons:
1. This allows it so that you will be able to interact with a majority of the other students around her without there being an issue.
2. This also allows her to have room for growth with her semblance as she gets older and more powerful with her semblance use (to which the time can decrease).
3. This still gives the potential for other students to forget what she looks like and ask who she is, if that was something you were wanting to have as an option.

Overall, I really enjoy this semblance and would love to see it work around other people. It just needs to be nerfed a bit so that it can integrate and work well with the other people here on the board.

Name: Amane Petrichor

Age: 18

Occupation: First Year Student at Beacon, Explorer

Appearance: Amane is 164cm tall, weighs 45kg, and has light skin. She has shoulder length blonde hair and amber eyes.

While Amane mixes and matches her apparel, her clothing of choice in the field consists of a dark grey weather resistant peacoat over a black polo shirt, dark brown jeans, a black beanie on her head, black moto boots, a dark brown scarf, a luxury watch on her left wrist, and a backpack with various supplies.

She does not make any modifications to her uniform unless its for things like weather conditions, but always wears her watch.

Amane also has a collection of expensive men’s colognes, which she wears interchangeably.

[spoiler](https://i.imgur.com/fXlHmp2.jpg)


History: Amane was born in Vale to two prestigious scientists who were on the verge of discovering something amazing until they were killed by a car bomb. She was taken in by her friend Iris, whose family also consisted of wealthy scientists. Amane and Iris grew up together and as the years passed, Iris was invited to a school for highly gifted scientists.

Seeing her sister and best friend moving up in the world, Amane resolved to do something too. However, she felt being a scientist wasn’t for her, especially after digging into her parents’ past and finding out that they weren’t the best of people. She still wanted to be somebody who helped people and made their lives better though, so she decided to become a huntress and signed up for Signal Academy with support from her family.

Even before discovering her semblance, Amane was really low-key and didn't like to attract attention, but was an excellent student who put in a lot of effort to train and study, even attending an extracurricular class to learn aura detection.

Personality: Amane is a very grounded person who never panics and likes to thinks things through. She's also highly perceptive, good at collecting information, and willing to delve into morally grey areas. Being an introvert, she doesn't talk a whole lot and tries to stay away from the center of attention, but can still make conversation with others. Despite being somewhat withdrawn though, she does have a slight humorous side, like getting a 0 on every true or false test she ever took.

Amane is also someone who lives life to a high standard while staying out of her comfort zone. She likes playing racing games, listening to house music, working on or riding her motorcycle, drinking scotch, and occasionally smoking a cigar or weed. She dislikes greasy food and public restrooms.

Using the pings from her aura detection along with her environmental senses to deduce areas with a high chance of enemies, Amane keeps her gun pointed at where they are most likely to pop out, and can immediately fire at areas she thinks where enemies are, even if she hasn’t seen them. Because of Amane’s trigger discipline however, there is usually a fifty millisecond delay for her to confirm that it is in fact an enemy.

Recoil Control - Amane not only has an excellent grip and stance to improve the grouping of her shots, she controls it with a fine level of precision, allowing the recoil deliver her line of fire to the next target. She mainly uses this for hitting a target’s head right after hitting its chest.

Spray Transfer - Amane is highly capable of changing targets without letting go of the trigger. Against two enemies placed about ten meters away and a maximum distance of three meters apart from each other, Amane is able to terminate the first one with her automatic rifle, then accurately turn to target the other within the .125 second interval of a next bullet being chambered.

Triple-Burst Failure to Stop - Amane’s signature technique, her version of failure to stop that is executed within a single three round burst from her automatic rifle. The first shot is either placed in the targets center of gravity near its navel, or on one side of its sternum. If placed in the center of gravity, she controls the recoil of her gun to let it instantly place the next shot to the target’s sternum. If the first shot is placed on one side of the sternum, she grounds the recoil to place the next shot in the other side of the target’s sternum. With the purpose of the first two shots being to stop the target in its tracks, Amane once against uses the recoil of her gun to place the third shot into the target’s “T-Zone” to turn off its lights. Amane is capable of doing this to enemies up to 30m away[/spoiler]

Cross Termination - "A group of enemies should not be seen as individuals, but a single group to be flowed through."
Somewhat a more advanced version of Spray Transfer, Cross Termination is a technique to use against tight groups of enemies where the user doesn’t let go of the trigger of an automatic weapon, but controls it, making every single bullet deliver a headshot to a different enemy. Amane needs to practice this technique a little more before it is ready to use in the field.

Crippling - “If you can’t find a weak point, make one.”
With Beacon Academy comes tougher, tankier enemies in the future. Amane developed this technique in preparation of that, which involves firing at certain kinematic weak points at the right times to cripple their movement, for example, the fulcrums of any strenuous actions the enemy might be performing, or even their center of gravity. Due to it being recently developed, Amane is not ready to use this in the field yet.

CHARACTER

Name: Amane Mathoera Petrichor

Age: 18

Species and Gender: Human and Female

Occupation: First Year Student at Beacon, Explorer

Appearance: Amane is 164cm tall, weighs 45kg, and has light skin. She has shoulder length blonde hair and amber eyes.

While Amane mixes and matches her apparel, her clothing of choice in the field consists of a dark grey weather resistant peacoat over a black polo shirt, dark brown jeans, a black beanie on her head, black moto boots, a dark brown scarf, a luxury watch on her left wrist, and a backpack with various supplies.

She does not make any modifications to her uniform unless its for things like weather conditions, but always wears her watch.

Amane also has a collection of expensive men’s colognes, which she wears interchangeably.

[spoiler=Appearance](https://i.imgur.com/fXlHmp2.jpg)

Watch: ShowHide
(https://i.imgur.com/2zh8MPQ.png)


History: Amane was born in Vale to two prestigious scientists who were on the verge of discovering something amazing until they were killed by a car bomb. She was taken in by her friend Iris, whose family also consisted of wealthy scientists. Amane and Iris grew up together and as the years passed, Iris was invited to a school for highly gifted scientists.

Seeing her sister and best friend moving up in the world, Amane resolved to do something too. However, she felt being a scientist wasn’t for her, especially after digging into her parents’ past and finding out that they weren’t the best of people. She still wanted to be somebody who helped people and made their lives better though, so she decided to become a huntress and signed up for Signal Academy with support from her family.

Even before discovering her semblance, Amane was really low-key and didn't like to attract attention, but was an excellent student who put in a lot of effort to train and study, even attending an extracurricular class to learn aura detection. However, she would slightly downplay her skills and never do anything flashy during demonstrations and duels, only getting passing scores so she doesn’t attract attention. After she discovered her semblance, she was even less there in the minds of others.

After graduating from Signal, Amane took an year off to work in the field, collecting lab samples for Iris, who graduated early and was immediately hired to work at a laboratory. This year for Amane consisted mostly of exploring ruins, but due to the nature of her semblance and the advantages it provides, there were also a few grey areas connected with Vale’s criminal underworld and the black market. Eventually though, Iris pushed her to go to Beacon so she can make friends other than Iris and finish her training to become a fully-fledged huntress.

Personality: Amane is a very grounded person who never panics and likes to thinks things through. She's also highly perceptive, good at collecting information, and willing to delve into morally grey areas. Being an introvert, she doesn't talk a whole lot and tries to stay away from the center of attention, but can still make conversation with others. Despite being somewhat withdrawn though, she does have a slight humorous side and tends to make jokes occasionally..

Amane is also someone who lives life to a high standard while staying out of her comfort zone. She likes playing racing games, listening to house music, working on or riding her motorcycle, drinking scotch, and occasionally smoking a cigar or weed. She dislikes greasy food and public restrooms.

Aura and Semblance: Aura Color: Invisible | Abilities: Detection
Semblance: People will forget what Amane looks like if they don’t see her for twelve hours. She also doesn’t appear on camera. While this ability is passive and cannot be controlled, those who knew her before her semblance was activated can remember what she looks like. One drawback of her semblance is that it slows down her aura regeneration by 30%.

Combat Behavior: Amane is someone who fights with pure precision and efficiency. Highly skilled at controlling her rifle and aiming in a short time frame, she can land two to the chest and one to the head within a single three round burst from thirty meters away. Her movements are devoid of anything extra as she moves around with agility, her reactions are impressive, and she’s great at strategy and decision-making in the spur of the moment. Her environmental sense is also a major asset, which she uses on top of her aura detection to predict enemies and hit various “oddshots”. With her throwing stars, Amane uses them very strategically and is able to throw them in curved trajectories.

However, Amane is very lightweight and not the strongest person out there so in a match of physical strength, many people can overtake her. She also lacks short term stamina and defensive aura capacity, which gives her trouble with drawn out short-distance battles and makes her a glass cannon. Finally, Amane doesn’t have much experience working in a team, but she understands this and is willing to cooperate with team members.

Techniques: ShowHide


Holding Angles - Amane likes to hold enemy bottlenecks from covered firing positions, attempting to angle herself to narrow down the gap to get it around 200-300cm wide. Because of the narrow gap to shoot through, Amane’s fast reactions come into play here in order to mow down any enemies passing through the bottleneck.

Weapon History: As someone with a preference for practicality, Amane started out with an ordinary rifle and slowly customized it to fit her use case the best. During her one year absence, Amane came across a shipment of armor piercing rounds from a seller in the black market which she completely bought out (selling Iris's McLaren to do so), both because she didn't want unsavory criminals getting their hands on them and also because they complimented her fighting style really well.

Oh i thought you where joking about this. OK well lke our world it is likely that there are mutiple fire teams each given a region to patrol which would make Amane's local one pretty urban. This would mean there was almost no danger of grimm in the city of Vale itself, if Amane volenteers for a more further away one then she is unlikely to ever be called upon given; the distance, Amane's other committments, and fire fighters remalying on teamwork which they and Amane simply dont have time to develop.

I'm 99% sure fire fighters dont have a marksman to kill animals in any country.

Amane could be part of a volenteer fire fighting service but they are often exclusively rural and do support stuff like pre burning and what not. I'd also like a bit on how the semblance thing plays out.

Took it out.

Also added into Personality that despite her willingness to go around the law, Amane advocates government infrastructure and “the system”, believing that a smoothly flowing civilization greatly increases humanity’s chances of survival.
Title: Re: Amane Petrichor
Post by: Kingnoname1 on April 09, 2018, 06:25:54 PM
I'd like a little more delving into the innate hypocrisy of advocating for government infrastructure while going out of her way to undermine it with the black market stuff.
Title: Re: Amane Petrichor
Post by: Inexhaustive on April 10, 2018, 02:08:06 AM
Amane understands that this could be considered hypocritical and while she believes it’s important to establish a code to live by, she’s too grounded to consider it (or anything else) sacred. Nothing is ever black or white and everything depends on the situation. Amane trusts only herself and no one else to make the right decisions and act in the best interests for the ‘good guys’. If she knew somebody else who wanted to sink into this way of life, she wouldn’t stop them but she would recommend against it and give them proper warnings. If that somebody were close to her and they had a reason to get into the underground, she would rather take care of it for them than have them dirty their hands.

Also, Amane doesn’t go out of her way to undermine the law, but some of the things she is tasked to retrieve are difficult or impossible to obtain completely legally. When she happens upon armaments on the black market that catch her interest, one of the main reasons for her to buy them is to prevent them from ending up in the hands of criminals and terrorists, plus the fact that she can use them for herself also helps too.

Finally, Amane enjoys the feeling of power. Living a shadowy underground life as society drifts around her makes her feel like a wolf amongst sheep and government infrastructure keeps the system going, which is another reason she advocates for it.
Title: Re: Amane Petrichor
Post by: Kingnoname1 on April 10, 2018, 04:39:36 AM
I'd like some degree of this detailed in the profile. Also the whole 'she is buying them so others don't' isn't how markets, even illegal ones work. She is contributing to a system which if it is anything like ours ties her up in the slave and drug trades stimulating that flow of resources. The more money she gives arms dealers the more money they have buy even more guns and expand their businesses. I'm not saying Amane can't think like this I just want you to know it isn't very well thought out and would very easily end with her being bfto'ed if she ever tried to defend her position.

Also if she is willing the commit criminal acts to gain a slight edge, special atlas rounds instead of whatever hunters-in-training are provided, that does set the bar pretty low. Would she cheat in a 1v1 fight? Well more than she is already I suppose.
Title: Re: Amane Petrichor
Post by: Inexhaustive on April 10, 2018, 05:19:22 AM
I put the first paragraph in Personality.

You might think that's the case, but the merchandise has already been acquired and it's going somewhere. Plus, this allows Amane to work her way deeper into the market. Also, her habits come from her experiences, and (luckily) the people she's met in the underworld weren't all scum.

In a 1v1 fight where there was such a thing as cheating, Amane would actually downplay her abilities and lose on purpose in order to learn her opponent without giving them information on her own abilities. If she doesn't feel the need to learn her opponent, she'll try to avoid the fight but if unavoidable she'll still downplay her abilities. If she feels she has learned enough from her opponent and can still find a way to beat them without revealing her abilities, she'll do so.
Title: Re: Amane Petrichor
Post by: Kingnoname1 on April 10, 2018, 05:38:50 AM
The arms dealers may have acquired the ammo already but they don't make a profit until it's sold and Amane provides another bidder allowing them to increase the price or simply cover any short fall if the normal buyers are broke/arrested/taking a break/doing other kinds of work/etc. Also how is she working her way deeper into the market if everyone forgets her after 12 hours?

Likewise what exactly is the purpose of studying others and losing on purpose? Competitions like the Vytal festival are played up to be basically the Olympics so throwing would be unusual.
Title: Re: Amane Petrichor
Post by: Inexhaustive on April 10, 2018, 06:22:43 AM
They only forget her appearance so she can still use other means. Even so, she only works with a few people who she knows aren't complete scumbags and knows she can trust enough to not compromise her. Amane isn't a bidder when it comes to purchasing black market stock, once she catches wind of it from either information brokers, her network, or herself, she goes right after it before its up for sale and negotiates with the supplier, offering a more discreet transaction and what they believe to be more profitable than what they earn after market or auction commissions. Because she's a repeat customer to few sellers, they may also procure/create things for her on request.

In an event as major as the Vytal Festival, Amane would try not to participate, only willing if her team absolutely needed it. There's just too many people watching. She studies others because she's not interested in winning as much as she cares about staying a step ahead of those in the same field whom she may be working with or possibly against in the future.
Title: Re: Amane Petrichor
Post by: Kingnoname1 on April 10, 2018, 08:48:35 AM
OK just to summaries what we talked about on discord and what we have discussed here.

You want Amane to get to the point where she can walk into certain black market store fronts and receive her shipments as well as having enough knowledge of these shipments to buy them before others have a chance. Although I am resistant of this as a concept as it implies weapon smuggling is a lot more organised than a super militarised state like Atlas would allow I understand what you are going for. Personally I see two ways forward
There is a lot of stuff you can do with the underworld elements, from basis of missions to inter-team conflict and if that is what you are going for then great. If it is just to get shiny bullets it probably won't be worth it.
Title: Re: Amane Petrichor
Post by: Inexhaustive on April 10, 2018, 03:17:23 PM
Okay, I just turned it over and took out most of the black market stuff. She still has gone into the exotic parts of it from time to time but not much. Her experimental rounds come from some contacts within the weapons department of the company she works at. I still kept her whole moral paradox and imperfect philosophies in her personality but I removed some of it.

Other things I added:

CHARACTER

Name: Amane Mathoera Petrichor

Age: 18, born the 20th of Arashi (April)

She does not make any modifications to her school uniform unless its for things like weather conditions.

Amane also has a collection of expensive men’s colognes, which she wears interchangeably. She normally speaks with a British accent (RP) but can do a general American one well too.

Because of her semblance, her profile picture in the Beacon database is just a standard grey placeholder figure.

History: Amane was born in Vale to two prestigious scientists who were on the verge of discovering something amazing until they were killed by a car bomb. She was taken in by her friend Iris, whose family also consisted of wealthy scientists. Amane and Iris grew up together and as the years passed, Iris was invited to a school for highly gifted scientists.

She likes playing racing games, listening to house music, working on or riding her motorcycle, drinking scotch, and occasionally smoking a cigar or weed. She dislikes greasy food, public restrooms, and disorganization in general.

Techniques: ShowHide


Holding Angles - Amane likes to hold enemy bottlenecks from covered firing positions, attempting to angle herself and narrowing down the bottleneck to around 200-300cm wide. Because of the narrow gap to shoot through, Amane’s fast reactions come into play here in order to mow down any enemies passing through the bottleneck.
[spoiler=Example](https://i.imgur.com/F6jN7Jx.png)


One-Tap - AP rounds are expensive. Despite using an automatic rifle, Amane prefers to terminate enemies with one round to the head whenever the opportunity is presented.

Collateral Damage - Amane loves shooting targets that are lined up.

Prefiring - Amane is one who acts instead of reacts. Using the pings from her aura detection along with her environmental senses to deduce areas with a high chance of enemies, Amane keeps her gun pointed at where they are most likely to pop out, and can immediately fire at areas she knows where enemies are, even if she hasn’t seen them. Because of Amane’s trigger discipline however, there is usually a fifty millisecond delay for her to confirm that it is in fact an enemy.

Recoil Control - Amane not only has an excellent grip and stance to improve the grouping of her shots, she controls it with a fine level of precision, allowing the recoil deliver her line of fire to the next target. She mainly uses this for hitting a target’s head right after hitting its chest.

Spray Transfer - Amane is highly capable of changing targets without letting go of the trigger. Against two enemies placed about ten meters away and a maximum distance of three meters apart from each other, Amane is able to terminate the first one with her automatic rifle, then accurately turn to target the other within the .125 second interval of a next bullet being chambered.

Triple-Burst Failure to Stop - Amane’s signature technique, her version of failure to stop that is executed within a single three round burst from her automatic rifle. The first shot is either placed in the targets center of gravity near its navel, or on one side of its sternum. If placed in the center of gravity, she controls the recoil of her gun to let it instantly place the next shot to the target’s sternum. If the first shot is placed on one side of the sternum, she grounds the recoil to place the next shot in the other side of the target’s sternum. With the purpose of the first two shots being to stop the target in its tracks, Amane once against uses the recoil of her gun to place the third shot into the target’s “T-Zone” to turn off its lights. Amane is capable of doing this to enemies up to 30m away[/spoiler]
Techniques (Not ready for field use yet!): ShowHide

Cross Termination - "A group of enemies should not be seen as individuals, but a single group to be flowed through."
Somewhat a more advanced version of Spray Transfer, Cross Termination is a technique to use against tight groups of enemies where the user doesn’t let go of the trigger of an automatic weapon, but controls it, making every single bullet deliver a headshot to a different enemy. Amane needs to practice this technique a little more before it is ready to use in the field.

Crippling - “If you can’t find a weak point, make one.”
With Beacon Academy comes tougher, tankier enemies in the future. Amane developed this technique in preparation of that, which involves firing at certain kinematic weak points at the right times to cripple their movement, for example, the fulcrums of any strenuous actions the enemy might be performing, or even their center of gravity. Due to it being recently developed, Amane is not ready to use this in the field yet.

CHARACTER

Name: Amane Mathoera Petrichor

Age: 18, born the 20th of Arashi (April)

Species and Gender: Human Female

Occupation: First Year Student at Beacon, Explorer

Appearance: Amane is 164cm tall, weighs 45kg, and has light skin. She has shoulder length blonde hair and amber eyes.

While Amane mixes and matches her apparel, her clothing of choice in the field consists of a dark grey weather resistant peacoat over a black polo shirt, dark brown jeans, a black beanie on her head, black moto boots, a dark brown scarf, an expensive watch on her left wrist, and a backpack with various supplies. She does not make any modifications to her school uniform unless its for things like weather conditions.

Amane also has a collection of expensive men’s colognes, which she wears interchangeably. She normally speaks with a British accent (RP) but can do a general American one well too.

Because of her semblance, her profile picture in the Beacon database is just a standard grey placeholder figure.

[spoiler=Appearance](https://i.imgur.com/fXlHmp2.jpg)

Watch: ShowHide
(https://i.imgur.com/2zh8MPQ.png)

History: Amane was born in Vale to not one, but two very successful scientists who were killed when she was little, assassinated in broad daylight on a highway as they were driving. The assassin, who was never caught, shot them both from opposing traffic with a silenced pistol while driving at high speeds. After ballistic experts confirmed that the level of sophistication and technique used was of huntsman level, an investigation was opened which led to the discovery that Amane's parents were involved in illegal activities and were assassinated when they wanted out to raise their child. Because of this, a large case involving a lot of lawyers ensued when it came time to decide what to do with the resources of the deceased and while it was eventually settled that money for damages would be seized and Amane would only inherit the remaining twenty percent of it, twenty percent of what the Petrichors had was still worth quite a lot.

As the cases were going on, Amane was taken in by the Mathoera family who were both also very successful scientists that respected her parents, even after they learned the results of the investigation. After quickly bonding with her new sister Iris, the two grew up together and as the years passed, Iris was invited to a school for highly gifted scientists. Seeing her sister and best friend moving up in the world, Amane resolved to do something that helped people too. She considered being a scientist but eventually decided it just wasn’t what she wanted to do. So, after her family told her they would support whatever she wanted to do, she decided to become a huntress and signed up for Signal Academy.

Even before discovering her semblance, Amane was really low-key and didn't like to attract attention, but was an excellent student who put in a lot of effort to train and study, even attending an extracurricular class to learn aura detection. However, she would slightly downplay her skills and never do anything flashy during demonstrations and duels, only getting passing scores so she doesn’t attract attention. After she discovered her semblance, she was even less there in the minds of others.

After graduating from Signal, Amane took an year off to work in the field, collecting lab samples for Iris, who graduated early and was immediately hired to work at a laboratory. This year for Amane consisted mostly of exploring ruins, but her searches have occasionally led her to exotic parts within the black market. Eventually though, Iris pushed her to go to Beacon so she can make friends other than Iris and finish her training to become a fully-fledged huntress.

Personality: Amane is a very grounded person who never panics and likes to thinks things through. She's also highly perceptive, good at collecting information, and willing to delve into morally grey areas. Despite her willingness to go around the law though, Amane advocates government infrastructure and “the system”, believing that a smoothly flowing civilization greatly increases humanity’s chances of survival. Amane understands that this could be considered hypocritical and while she believes it’s important to establish a code to live by, she’s too grounded to consider it (or anything else) sacred. Nothing is ever black or white and everything depends on the situation. Amane trusts only herself and no one else to make the right decisions and act in the best interests for the ‘good guys’.

Being an introvert, she doesn't talk a whole lot and tries to stay away from the center of attention, but can still make friendly conversation with others. While being somewhat withdrawn, she does have a slight humorous side and tends to make jokes occasionally.

Finally, Amane is also someone who lives life to a high standard while staying out of her comfort zone. She likes playing racing games, listening to house music, working on or riding her motorcycle, mixing cocktails to drink, and occasionally smoking weed. She dislikes greasy food, public restrooms, and disorganization in general.

Aura and Semblance: Aura Color: Invisible | Abilities: Detection
Semblance: People will forget what Amane looks like if they don’t see her for twelve hours. She also doesn’t appear on camera. While this ability is passive and cannot be controlled, those who knew her before her semblance was activated can remember what she looks like. One drawback of her semblance is that it slows down her aura regeneration by 50%.

Combat Behavior: Amane is someone who fights with pure precision and efficiency. Highly skilled at controlling her rifle and aiming in a short time frame, she can land two to the chest and one to the head within a single three round burst from thirty meters away. Her movements are devoid of anything extra as she moves around with agility, her reactions are impressive, and she’s great at strategy and decision-making in the spur of the moment. Her environmental sense is also a major asset, which she uses on top of her aura detection to predict enemies and hit various “oddshots”. With her throwing stars, Amane uses them very strategically and is able to throw them in curved trajectories.

However, Amane is very lightweight and not the strongest person out there so in a match of physical strength, many people can overtake her. She also lacks short term stamina and defensive aura capacity, which gives her trouble with drawn out short-distance battles and makes her a glass cannon. Finally, Amane doesn’t have much experience working in a team, but she understands this and is willing to cooperate with team members.

Techniques: ShowHide


Holding Angles - Amane likes to hold enemy bottlenecks from covered firing positions, attempting to angle herself and narrowing down the bottleneck to around 200-300cm wide. Because of the narrow gap to shoot through, Amane’s fast reactions come into play here in order to mow down any enemies passing through the bottleneck.
[spoiler=Example](https://i.imgur.com/F6jN7Jx.png)


One-Tap - AP rounds are expensive. Despite using an automatic rifle, Amane prefers to terminate enemies with one round to the head whenever the opportunity is presented.

Collateral Damage - Amane loves shooting targets that are lined up.

Prefiring - Amane is one who acts instead of reacts. Using the pings from her aura detection along with her environmental senses to deduce areas with a high chance of enemies, Amane keeps her gun pointed at where they are most likely to pop out, and can immediately fire at areas she knows where enemies are, even if she hasn’t seen them. Because of Amane’s trigger discipline however, there is usually a fifty millisecond delay for her to confirm that it is in fact an enemy.

Recoil Control - Amane not only has an excellent grip and stance to improve the grouping of her shots, she controls it with a fine level of precision, allowing the recoil deliver her line of fire to the next target. She mainly uses this for hitting a target’s head right after hitting its chest.

Eventually though, Iris pushed her to go to Beacon so she can make friends other than Iris and finish her training to become a fully-fledged huntress.

Personality: Amane is a very grounded person who never panics or breaks composure, even in the midst of chaos. As somebody who is highly perceptive and excellent at collecting information, she is often well-prepared for any situation she's getting into and prefers to win her battles before they start with as little fighting as possible, whether it's in combat or in an argument. She is also willing to delve into morally grey areas, but advocates and has faith in government structure and 'the system' with the belief that a smoothly flowing civilization is what's best for mankind. Amane understands that this could be considered hypocritical, and while she believes it is important to establish a code to live by, she also understands that treating things as sacred will only put her at a disadvantage.

The true source of Amane's high-functioning mental capabilities is not a genius intellect, nor is it through excessive studying, but love. Underneath her rock-hard, calculating demeanor and questionable morality, is a person who truly loves all things in the world despite its harsh realities. Even if she may not like something/someone, or has negative feelings towards them as a person, Amane always appreciates the beauty and perfection of things simply for existing. This love makes her someone who not only learns, but forms a deep connection and understanding with everything around her.

Even though Amane is a quiet introvert, she is an empathetic people-person who relates to others and puts herself in their shoes to understand or read them. Seeing a life with stories and love in every single person, she never forgets somebody's name, and not just theirs, but the names of the important people in their lives too. Her mindset and decision-making is not restricted to just logic and her calculations, but also taking into account the feelings of those around her. She is extremely loyal, but not to a fault and will never give away every secret or contingency up her sleeve. She trusts those she considers friends and will put her faith in them, always looking out for them but making sure they don't do something they'll regret. She also never lies to people under the guise of protecting them, because she has faith that they can learn to handle the truth and carry on with living their lives.

Despite having the intuition of a woman and clearly defining herself as female, Amane tends to carry herself and perform her actions in a very manly way, from how she talks, or fights, or drives, all the way down to how she changes her clothes or how she sits. She enjoys putting herself out of her comfort zone, being someone who takes chances and has a mindset to win big instead of losing small. She also lives life to a high standard and enjoys playing video games in moderation, listening to house music, working on or riding her motorcycle, mixing cocktails to drink, and occasionally smoking weed. She dislikes greasy food, public restrooms, and disorganization in general. Finally, Amane does have a bit of a humorous side, occasionally cracking jokes and video game references while still maintaining her usual expressionless face.

Concealed Carry Weapon: FN Five-seveN with a suppressor and spare magazine. Kept inside her coat.

Combat Utilities: 3x tactical high-explosive throwing stars, 1x smoke grenade, 1x flashbang, 1x incendiary grenade. Amane will also carry more powerful explosives such as breaching charges or remote mines if she's knowingly going into a situation that calls for it.

Amane usually gets around on her black Ducati Panigale 1199 S motorcycle with an installed Termignoni racing exhaust system.

Office:
After seeing results, the company Amane works at also gave her a spare medium-sized private side office to use, though she doesn't go there often. It has a very contemporary design with polished wood walls, a desk and a computer, along with a meeting area with two black leather couches across from each other and a table between with a small potted rare cactus on it.[/spoiler]
