CHARACTER

Name: Topaz (Taylor) Stone

Age: 21

Species and Gender:Female Human

Symbol: A quartz crystal cluster.

Occupation: 3rd year Atlas Student

Appearance: Topaz has an average height at 5'4 compared to other women with small A cups, and her weight isn't anything very special either clocking in at 120 pounds making her at first glance a very normal looking girl. Her body has a slim build to it with a hint of some muscle that she developed through her fighting and other activities. Topazs blond hair is mid range reaching down to just above her shoulders, normally she likes to keep it in a ponytail while fighting so that it doesn't get in her way, but if she is simply walking around or at school she hangs it down. Her emerald green eyes are a highlight of her face, the other being Topazs petite nose and black nerd glasses due to her near-sightedness.The last thing she carries is a brown messenger bag to hold her books and other materials.

Daily Outfit:/Her daily outfit is best described as hipster, going from top to bottom she has a dark green knit beanie that is more sitting on her head then being worn. Around her neck she wears a matching knitted cowl on top of a gray long slim shirt. Topazs pants are just normal black skinny jeans that end in light brown leather boots.

Fighting Clothes:Topaz uses what is basically her daily outfit for combat only switching out her shirt and cowl for a thin hoodie with short sleeves that reach to two inches short of her elbow and a facemask. Her facemask is a lighted version of a miners facemask, allowing for communication to her other teammates through its microphone, it also allows her to give her drone basic voice commands such as return, shutdown, or startup.The facemask is light gray alongside the rim but the more inner portion is painted an emerald green. Looking more downward after her hoodie ends her arm warmers begin, they are a more muted shade of emerald green, drawing much less attention to them vs the mask.The entire of the arm warmers are reinforced with kevlar to make them less likely to rip and help Topaz fire arrows from her bow without hurting herself with cuts or rope burns. The last thing of note is that on her left arm is a small touchpad built into the arm warmer that allows her to control her drone by either tilting her arm, or by using it as a touchpad to control it like that.

History: Topaz was born as second youngest of her family with two older brothers(30,25) and a younger sister(16),they all mostly get along but she is much closer with her sister then she is her brothers.Her  family lives in a mining town inside of Atlas with her father being the foreman of the local mine and her mother being a stay at home mom taking care of the kids and house. As a child Topaz would spend lots of time with her father at the mine occasionally venturing down into it with her father to check up on things, and the time that wasn't spent at the mine was spent exploring her town(and once in a while sneaking into the mine to explore there as well). Once she was old enough Topaz began roughhousing with her brothers, but as they all got older the roughhousing became much rougher and intense until it turned into straight up fighting each other. This type of fighting continued until Topaz was 10, when they discovered that their school had a fight club which they promptly joined

          Every time they went to the club they would all be badly beaten, week after week after week. Discouraged her brothers quit but Topaz kept going determined to eventually win even if she had to get beat up for the next decade. By the time Topaz turned 13 she was one of the strongest fighters there, being able to beat(or at least tie) with everyone else in the club. This turnaround was due to her spending all her free time studying how to fight and getting tutored by other people in the town. By this point she decided to go the next level up and train with weapons, the school of course didn't offer much in this way due to the obvious danger so she had her father hire a private tutor to come over and teach her. Her skills with weapons developed much the same way as her fighting and by age 15 was Topaz was competing in tournaments and doing decently. At a regional level she was one of the tops but it was in nationals than her skills were truly tested. It was also in one of these tournaments that the "accident" occurred in which the opponent ended up with a real weapon and not a training one. This made her parents fire her tutor and ban her from practicing fighting, instead her father made her a supervisor down in the mine hoping to convince her to follow in his footsteps.

         Topaz was furious at her parents decision and instead continued to practice down in the mine when she was alone, this was about the time that she also began to pick up a new hobby of remote control vehicles. She still had to work as a supervisor making sure no one was hurt, but since the mine practically ran on its own she had loads of free time with nothing to do, lots of the time she would end up helping in the underground workshop becoming good friends with the workers there. If not that she would bring books to read to pass the time. At first they were fiction but as time passed Topaz began to read more and more non-fiction, absorbing tons of new information. Topaz learned some building skills in the workshop and constantly make trinkets and toys for her little sister, or components for her newest RC thing. As Topaz grew up she knew she wanted to be a huntswomen and there was nothing her parents could do to stop her, this meant endless nights of arguing about her future and how she didn't want to work in the mine forever while her parents pleaded for her to pick a safe lifestyle at home. Eventually her parents relented, begrudgingly allowing her to go to Atlas Academy to follow her dreams.

         
Personality: Topazs is very bullheaded, she always wants to get her way and refused to let anyone else get in the way of that thing. Sometimes she will stick to a position even if she realizes that halfway through that the other option is the better option, when the argument has ended she will then slink over to the other side trying to hide it best she can. Outside of that Topaz appears to be kind of a ditz in often forgetting things or tripping over her own feet. Going in that theme she is nice to anyone who hasn't wronged her, but goes out of her way to annoy or bother those that have.

This does not seem to correlate with her other large personality trait in that she is a massive nerd, she tries to be knowledgeable on most things and hates it when people are talking about something she doesn't know about. This means that she is book smart, and spends a lot of time studying or learning random things in the library.Topaz can also be quick to violence at times, if she sees a situation start to go south she'll put some effort in to save it but will usually quit and start swinging instead seeing it as a much easier way to get out of something. She also hates her name and asks everyone to call her Taylor on account of it, continually calling her Topaz may anger her.

Aura and Semblance: Topazs aura is Emerald Green. Her semblance is Crystal Ball, it allows her to use crystals or gems as cameras and tracking devices, all she has to do is hold the crystal/gem in her hand and "activate it".The process of activation takes 30 seconds and does not charge the crystal.The cameras also can choose between having sound and not having sound, the latter using less charge than the former. In order to use the crystals as cameras she needs to charge them as well as activate them, and while activating is a one and done per crystal, charging needs to be redone after itís spent. On standby the camera can last for weeks or months, but using them will rapidly deplete their charge based on the crystal/gems purity. A extremely high purity crystal(which is rare) can be used for 24 hours with sound on a 2 minute charge, while a average purity crystal gets 1.5 hour of charge on a 2 minute charge without sound, and 40 minutes with sound. The camera crystals also a max range of 5 miles in camera mode, in tracking mode it has a longer range but after 5 miles becomes much weaker.When a crystal is further than 3 miles out Topaz can develop a headache from using it, and after 6 miles it becomes very painful. At its full range itís possible for Topaz to develop a migraine when using it as a camera so she tries her best to not be that far away when using it. And in order to use it Topaz has to stay still and concentrate if it is farther then 1/2 a mile away.In order to use the camera she must close at least one eye to see the images coming back. When tracking a crystal where ever it is it glows extremely bright in Topazs vision making it easy for her to see it, but it being behind thick walls makes it more difficult to see.  Activating a crystal take 5% of her aura while charging uses another 10% a minute, her aura while awake also refills slowly, about 10% a hour, while a 5 hour sleep will fully refill her aura from 0. As a final note when the crystal/gem is activated it faintly glows, in a well-lit room its barely noticeable, while in a dark room itís extremely obvious.As a final FINAL note she can have a maximum of ten crystals activated before having to deactivate them(which she does not need to be hands on to do).

Combat Behavior: Before the battle begins Topazs likes to scout out the battlefield with Lithium in primary mode to find any possible advantage to use before charging in. But once in combat Topaz tries to keep her opponent constantly guessing at her next move, is it going to be ranged? Or close quarts? Fast or slow? Where from? For an experienced person it make her appear random like she has no idea what she is doing, but there is a method to her madness. Primarily she is ranged, but when the opponent begins to understand that she is shooting at a mid-range distance she switches to being very close and fierce, slashing in a flurry before retreating for a moment, acting winded after that attack to lure them into a false sense that they have a moment. Then jumping in close again giving it all she has. Basically, what she is doing changes every minute or two, keeping them on their feet.Unfortunately in a horde type situation Topaz does much worse, preferring to deal in only 1v1 battles since that's where her background is. Along with that if the target is heavily armor that also throws a wrench in her plans since she will more likely than not tire before the enemy is brought down. In a team situation she doesn't work nearly as well as solo having the issue of wanting all the glory for herself, Topaz does try her best to communicate what she is doing to everyone else but ends up more narrating what she is going to do without regard for others. Last little note, Topaz sometimes gets in the way making her a potentially frustrating person to work with.

WEAPON

Name: Lithium

Primary Form: In its default state Lithium is a RC flying wing but it does not have wig tips at its end, its inner wing has a strip going the whole way round and the outer wing is sharp as a sword. At the very tip it has a extremely high purity quartz crystal that Topaz uses to see below and around Lithium, acting as a scout. In the middle of the flying wing there is also a gap thats ends in a point where the crystal housing and electronics begin. Its length from tip to tip is 2 feet.

Secondary Form: Lithium second form is when the two half of it split with a bar between them that Topaz can grab to use as a weapon. The bar can be anywhere from 6 inches to 1.5 feet long. In this form the two sides splitting are the only thing that change allowing Topaz to fight with it taking advantage of its razor sharp wings.

Tertiary Form: In its final form Lithium is a bow, coming in at 3 feet 6 inches the bar in between the wings is fully opened, and the wings bent backward on rails in order to create more of a curve to the bow. When Lithium enters bow form a malleable light string goes across the two wing tips and is used as the string for the bow. Like this its maximum range is 150 yards but Topaz tries to stay within 50 or less.

Dust Functions: Accepts all dusk rounds, although it usually holds ice, fire, and electricity. When in its first form it uses propulsion dust to move around, a full canister giving it 20 -30 minutes depending on conditions at the time. Otherwise no other dust has effect. In its secondary forum the strip on the inside edge lights up with the appropriate color, whatever it hits gets the effect of the dust. And in the third form whatever dust canister is placed in it the arrows get its effect.

History: Lithium was initially designed by Topaz and the first version was created as a parting gift in the mines workshop. Ever since Topaz has been upgrading it and changing it to make it better.

The Vale Region / The Hunter and the Hunted[Closed]
« on: December 05, 2016, 04:30:55 PM »
The first snow fall of the year was coming down over Vale along with the surrounding area, coating the forest in a cold blanket. Serin loved the cold and snow, which was lucki since Atlas was perpetually covered in a layer of it.The snow made him realize just how much he missed home. The stunning beauty of it not helping matters much,the silence that the snow brought as people and Grimm retreated back into their homes for warmth and comfort was another home-like thing.All the snow made Serin decided to go walk thourgh the forest in hopes of suduing his homesickness, and besides it was better hiding inside his room with his team mates. Dawning a black parka, and some leather hiking boots along with a hat he headed out in a random direction hoping got an interesting discovery or getting some good mental pictures.Wandering around Serin got lost in his own world, breaking out of it to occasionally examine something of interest. "But even if I do add a extra servo or two it still won't achieve the strength or function that I want..." Serin rambled to himself or the occasional animal.

"What if I replace... oh a deer trail I wonder where that leads." Serin said cutting himself off mid-sentence before following the tracks in the snow. After twenty minutes he noticed managed to catch up the deer.'That was lucky, didn't even have to follow it for that long.' Serin thought. He stared long and hard at the deer examing it. Its fur covered in a light dusting of snow making it appear to be coated in powdered sugar or cocaine. A fun idea popped into Serins head as he sunk his hands into the foot deep snow before lunging towards the deer, his black jacket making him appear to be a small Grimm. Serin charged the deer on to see how it reacts to Grimm, but as he got closer it didn't seem affected by him giving him what Serin swore was a cocky glance, almost as if it was saying "Fight me". Serin jumped up into the arm prepared to tackle the deer but before he got a chance to make a successful attack on it Serin was slammed away from the deer and into the snow rolling several times in the deep snow before stopping face up. A loud boom then assaulted his ears while Serin tried to figure out what was going on. His body hurt from slamming into the ground, all except his right arm which didn't feel anything. 'What the FUCK is happening' Was the thought that ran through Serin over and over, he tried to summon his puppets but found his aura was gone adding to the confusion about what took place. Groaning and attempting to get up Serin discovered something that would tell what just happened, his right arm wasn't working and a quick glance told him why, he had been shot. The bullet almost completely depleted his aura before continuing onto his arm and making a clean hole through the shoulder and the boom was from the bullet as well. "Fuck me."

Serin was walking about town looking for a bit of trouble to get himself into all in the name of entertainment of course, cant fight the police that would be absurd. Walking along the busy street his mind began to drift off a bit thinking about classes and the what not, trying to remember if he did all the homework or if there was any he forgot to do. "I don't think I forgot anything at least, I should have everything all done.....at least everything I can do right now." He momentarily paused at a fruit stand and studied a apple from behind his glasses checking for imperfections on it. Not finding any he payed for it and continued on his way while munching on his snack losing himself again. Before long he had managed to get himself turned around and wasn't sure where he was anymore. "Welp. Least I have some time to figure out how to get back I suppose. Could be worse, least Im not getting robbed or something." After some thought Serin decided that wandering around some more would be the best way to find his way back to a recognizable area, but his plan would be all for not when he heard a high scream erupt from behind him.

"Help! He's got my purse! Someone please help!"

Serin quickly ,and now alertly, directed his gaze over to where the women was pointing and sure enough there was a person wearing a hoodie running off with a purse. Without hesitation he dropped his apple and booked it after the thief threading his way through the crowd attempting to close the distance between them. "Stop! In the name of the law I command you to stop" He held no power with the law but regardless it was illegal. "Damn it I cant catch up at this speed, I need to slow him down." Serin muttered under his breath while shedding his jacket. Another minute of the pursuit passed before the crowd has disappeared and now stood locked up stores and houses, however Serin didn't seem to notice this change his concentration being on the thief. Coming up with a plan Serin cast his semblance and had a puppet run from behind the corner ahead, forcing the thief to duck into ally with hopefully a dead end. Once the puppet was dismissed Serin ran in after the thief to see him turned around toward the entrance and manically smiling, almost in anticipation.

"What a big man we got here, so brave as well running after a thief to save a random women's purse." The thief's voice practically mocked him as Serin approached with his blade now out.

"Heres the purse boy, we found yourself some much better prey now..." The thief said throwing the purse towards Serin. What do you mean we? Serin thought to himself was the realization of what had happened entered his train of thoughts. Rapidly turning around he found his exit now block by several muggers with their weapons draw, two had appeared on either side of him as well and one popped his head out from behind a dumpster in front.

"Theres no where to run now boy, just give in and make this easier."

"Welp"

The Vale Region / Boredom and Coffee[Open]
« on: November 23, 2016, 01:58:46 PM »
"Ugh Im so bored, I need to find something else to do." Serin said as he flopped around on his bed, he'd been studying the last couple of hours but that had gotten boring ages ago and he had finished his homework anyways so there wasn't much left.."Maybe I can go exercise or something that usual waste some time", he paused for a moment thinking about it before somewhat proclaiming"I don't feel like doing that either. Man there has to be something entertaining around here." It took a couple more minutes before he managed to force himself up out of the bed to get dressed in his usual going out attire before heading out. Leaving his room Serin quickly returned as he forget his sunglasses,grabbing them and putting them on  to combat the even present glare of the sun before he headed out into town. Figuring that maybe there's something going on in town that could be interesting or at least  distract him from his boredom,[color=cyan="Maybe there's a festival I forgot about today, that'd be nice. Ooooor maybe there's a movie I forget about!"[/color] he half shouted on his way out of Beacon in the direction of the town now, invigorated with the hope that there was something of interest.

A short while later Serin had winded up sitting on the stairs leading to a fountain in a plaza bordered by stores selling many different items, from tiny trinkets for kids to dust and weapons. Throwing his arms back and he leaned against the fountain while continuing to observe people from the safety of behind his glasses while talking to himself under his breath."This really isn't much better but I mean hey, its a change of scenery right? So its better than sitting around in my room if nothing else.' Eventually the feeling of restlessness that had been building within him for the past couple of hours finally hit its peak and forced Serin to find something to do, so scanning the area he found a nice looking coffee shop and ordered a small coffee before finding a stranger sitting at a table with a unoccupied looking chair. Plopping himself down into the chair he took a sip of his coffee before attempting a conversation with the stranger,"Hi, wonderful weather we're having huh? I wonder how long its going to last. The weather said a week but you know how inaccurate they are most of the reports just seem like a guess,you know?'

Approved Characters / Serin Avery

CHARACTER

Name: Serin Avery

Age: 17

Species and Gender: Human Male

Symbol:  A light blue delta

Occupation: 1st year student at Beacon

Appearance: Serin is a tall guy at 6ft 2in and he comes packed with a lean body. From his arm to his legs he has muscles but not overly so, opting to be defined rather then straight up swole. His abs follow the same thing in that he has the beginnings of a six pack that add to his overall defined look. Moving upwards to his face a noticeable feature is his bright blue eyes that make it impossible for him to play power with his friends due to their expressiveness that people good with reading emotions find easy to analyze. His hair is blond and Serin keeps in it short and spiky, and he opts to keep his face clean of facial hair clean shaving it in the morning. Before moving on to clothes there is one thing that is fairly noticeable when not hidden, his right arm is a prosthetic. Its size and shape is looks like a normal arm, but its colored a combination of white and grey with black highlights running throughout. Hidden within are blades that swing out of it, and ontop of the arm there is a groove running the length of the arm for firing arrows.

Serin considers himself a stylish man, with two outfits that he switches between. When he is going out on the town or to classes he wears a blue button up shirt that he tucks into jeans that are purposely worn with holes torn in them. On top of his shirt he wears a grey blazer that's normally kept partially buttoned up, and his shoes are simple brown loafers that match the color of his belt. When ever Serin needs to fight he has to take off his blazer so that his blades don't cut through it. Even as fashion conscience as Serin is he does have a more casual attire which consist of normal jeans and a blue zip-up hoodie with a plain white shirt underneath. Regardless of what he is wearing he is fairly conscience of his prosthetic arm and tries to  hide it by wearing long sleeves and hiding his hand in the pockets of his clothes or by wearing gloves when its possible.

History: Serin was born into a upper-class family at Atlas, both of his parents were previously high-ranking military offcials who after their retirement managed to receive good high paying jobs due to their contacts. He was born without a right arm as a birth defect and for most of his life used a simple prosthehic that had limited control and mobility, but was much cheaper to buy larger sizes as he grew up. For most of his life his parents encouraged him to constant try new things(mainly sports) and as a result he was almost always running around and exercising. He was never particularly great at any sport especially but he was always good at being a support and being the link between good players. Creating a opening in soccer to shoot or being a link between two players.

When Serin was about 10 when he began figuring out what he wanted to do. At first he wanted to work in the military and follow his parents, but his parents banned him from doing so because they had a near death experience that they were lucky to escape from. So he put his efforts into learning mechanics instead, but it never caught his attention like the military did. Serin very quickly discovered that he enjoyed making and designing weapons and before long made something for himself with the help of his mentor, a prototype of his Occam's Razor. The more he built on it and refined it the more he practised with it, and over the course of a year each practice session fanned the flames for his passion of fighting. His parents were not ignorant of this but at the same time they hoped that it would go away. As his 11th birthday approached it became increasingly clear that his future was in combat.

After many nights of arguing Serin's parents decided that while he wasn't allowed to join the military he would be allowed to become a huntsmen if he could pass the school, and with that he began training. Each step along the way his parents disapproved, from his training in school to being accepted into Beacon  they were always on his back about maybe changing what he wants to be. This massive amount of disapproval is why he wanted to go to Beacon instead of Atlas After being allowed to become a huntsmen Serin more or less stopped training and learning how to build stuff with the exception being on his arm. It accelerated when on his 15th birthday he received his final arm, the one that he would use for the rest of his life. He is constantly modifying it to make the blade come out faster or to shoot the bow farther.

Personality: Serin personality changes depending on the people he's around but it's one or the other, when around people of authority Serin takes on a very compliant personality that has problems fighting against authority unless it's something he believes very strongly in. Like this is the sit straight up and listen mode that he is general in during classes and when talking to teachers regardless of setting. When in the company of his peers he can be difficult to silence on occasion speaking lots, even if it adds nothing to the conversation and he talks to himself all the time when alone. He loves his friends and wants to be constantly hanging out, even if they just sit in the same room with music on and just studying. Serin can focus in on one thing at a time and sucks at dealing with multiple things at once in a short time frame, if he has time to back up and organise how he's going to tackle the problem he can do a better job at it. Which leads into his organisation, Serin can be a bit of organisation freak wanting everything to be in its place all the time and hates it when peoples put stuff where they don't belong.

Aura and Semblance: His aura is a aqua blue color. His semblance is called decoy, it creates several decoys of Serin that puppet him making it difficult to tell which one is the real him. The puppets looks solid but have no physical properties and everything goes through them. Each puppet that is summoned uses up more energy,  a minute reduction for each puppet summoned and one puppet lasts ten minutes before disappearing. Each time a puppet is summed is reduces the amount of time that a puppet can last for, so if he has one puppet that has 8 minutes left and he summons another one, the first now has 7 minutes left while the second has 9, and each additional puppet subtracts from the last.If the puppets are summed onto uneven ground(so if Serin is on a tall pillar) the puppets will appear on the ground and will move up and down the slope/stairs accordingly. Serin can take control of one or several puppets and move them around differently from the rest, however his body(and the rest of the puppets)stand still.The maximum amount of puppets that Serin can summon is 10 puppets for one minute. Each puppet can also speak amplifying his voice and distracting the Grimm.

Combat Behavior: In combat scenarios Serin is more of a support, keeping the Grimm distracted and disorientated throughout the fight, taking their attention off of his team mates and onto him, or pulling its attention away. When fighting a pack of Grimm he does the same purpose distracting the Grimm and running around so that less of them attack his team mates. While distracting the Grimm he may attack fiercely and briefly before pulling back again, damaging the Grimm. By himself he follows the same style of quickly attacking, getting a few quick strikes in before backing up again to reassess his situation. This does mean that the battles are much more drawn out, something that Serin doesn't particularly enjoy due to its tiring nature, so when he retreats after a attack he always trys to find the simpler way to win, rather then getting into a long drawn out battle which he is more likely to lose. If he does sense that he's getting tired and the fight is not going his way he will try to distract the Grimm and retreat/hide depending on which strategy is better for the moment. After he gathers his energy he launches another attack on the Grimm meaning that a fight against a strong Grimm may last for a long period of time.

WEAPON

Name: Occam's Razer

Primary Form: A blade extending from his arm composed of two blades in a triangle the tip being 30cm from his wrist, the sharp part of the blade is painted with a electric blue that make it seem to glow with a slight light. When not in use on his right arm the two parts of the blade pivots backward and retract into slots on his arm. On the left arm he has a brace that mimics his right arm, the blades retract back into a small protective crevices so that it doesn't hurt Serin by accident.

Secondary Form: On his right arm the blades have the ability to stop part way between his arm and being blade so that are in a line, like this it can be used as a crossbow that shoots bolts that create lots of smoke, glitter, and a loud bang on impact. It can be used to blind Grim by covering their face in smoke and blinding them with the flash of light that accompanies its explosion. These bolts don't do very much damage and if he wants to use his crossbow offensively he has to use normal crossbow bolts which have an effective range of 60 meters to penetrate flesh, and in order to penetrate armor he has to be within 20 or less meters. When folded open the crossbow measures 50cm from tip to tip due to the blades being at a slight angle that is there to make sure the arrows have the max velocity. Serin carries the bolts for his crossbow on his back in a leather quiver that holds 18 arrows, 8 of the distraction bolts and 8 of the normal bolts.

Dust Functions: Dust can be inserted into his arm and used to power up his blade, each dust changes the power of the edge of the blade. So fire causes the blade to become very hot(normal being 200C to 800C), lighting electrifies it, and gravity dust pushes back enemies when he hits them with the blade.Each dust capsule last approvingly 5 minutes at normal levels but the usage can be turned up to a high end lasting 20s(and if the limiter is messed with even higher but this risks damaging the arm). The dust functions can be turned off or on, meaning that in the example of electricity he can use it at normal levels 10 times at one minute. With fire its less liberal because unless the setting is very high it takes 30  seconds for the blade to fully heat. For gravity dust it takes 15s for the effects to fully turn on and another 15s for it to fully wind down meaning that its on for several minute long burst instead of quick 1 or 2 second ones just to punch a Grimm.


History: Serin created the first version of Occam's Razor when he was learning how to build weapons, and built upon it over time, his mentor helped him make and refine the blade constantly citing Occam's Razor as a rule for the internal mechanisms. After Serin left his mentor for learning combat he kept making it better and eventually named it Occam's Razor so that he never forgets his old mentor.

Regardless of what he is wearing he is fairly conscience of his robot arm and tries to  hide it by wearing long sleeves and hiding his hand in the pockets of his clothes or by wearing gloves when its possible.

History: Serin was born into a upper-class family at Atlas, both of his parents were previously high-ranking military officals who after their retirment managed to receive good high paying jobs due to their contacts. He was born without a right arm as a birth defect and for most of his life used a simple protesthic that had limited control and mobility, but was much cheaper to buy larger sizes as he grew up. For most of his life his parents encouraged him to constant try new things(mainly sports) and as a result he was almost always running around and exercising. He was never particularly great at any sport especially but he was always good at being a support and being the link between good players. Creating a opening in soccer to shoot or being a link between two players.

When Serin was about 10 when he began figuring out what he wanted to do. At first he wanted to work i the military and follow his parents but they banned him from doing so because they experience a near death experience that they were lucky to escape from. So he put his efforts into learning mechanics instead, but it never caught his attention like the military did. Serin very quickly discovered that he enjoyed making and designing weapons and before long made something for himself with the help of his mentor, a prototype of his Occam's Razor. The more he built on it and refined it the more he practiced with it, and over the course of a year each practice session fanned the flames for his passion of fighting. His parents were not ignorant of this but at the same time they hoped that it would go away. As his 11th birthday approached it became increasingly clear that his future was in combat.

After many nights of arguing Serins parents decided that while he wasn't allowed to join the military he would be allowed to become a huntsmen if he could pass the school, and with that he began training. Each step along the way his parents disapproved, from his training in school to being accepted into Beacon they were always on his back about maybe changing what he wants to be. After being allowed to become a huntsmen Serin more or less stopped training and learning how to build stuff with the exception being on his arm. It accelerated when on his 15th birthday he received his final arm, the one that he would use for the rest of his life. He is constantly modifying it to make the blade come out faster or to shoot the bow farther.

Personality: Serin personality changes depending on the people he's around but it's one or the other, when around people of authority Serin takes on a very compliant personality that has problems fighting against authority unless it's something he believes very strongly in. Like this is the sit straight up and listen mode that he is general in during classes and when talking to teachers regardless of setting. When in the company of his peers he can be difficult to silence on occasion speaking lots, even if it adds nothing to the conversation and he talks to himself all the time when alone. He loves his friends and wants to be constantly hanging out, even if they just sit in the same room with music on and just studying. Serin can focus in on one thing at a time and sucks at dealing with multiple things at once in a short time frame, if he has time to back up and organize how he's going to tackle the problem he can do a better job at it. Which leads into his organization, Serin can be a bit of organizationa freak wanting everything to be in its place all the time and hates it when peoples put stuff where they don't belong.

0Aura and Semblance: His aura is a aqua blue color. His semblance is called decoy, it creates several decoys of Serin that puppet him making it difficult to tell which one is the real him. The puppets looks solid but have no physical properties and everything goes through them. Each puppet that is summoned uses up more energy,  a minute reduce for each puppet summed and one puppet lasts ten minutes before disappearing. If the puppets are summed onto uneven ground(so if Serin is on a tall pillar) the puppets will appear on the ground and will move up and down the slope/stairs accordingly. Serin can take control of one or several puppets and move them around differently from the rest, however his body(and the rest of the puppets)stand still.. Each puppet can also speak amplifying his voice and distracting the Grim.

Combat Behavior: In combat scenarios Serin is more of a support, keeping the Grim distracted and disorientated throughout the fight, taking their attention off of his team mates and onto him, or pulling its attention away. When fighting a pack of Grim he does the same purpose distracting the Grim and running around so that less of them attack his team mates. While distracting the Grim he may attack fiercely and briefly before pulling back again, damaging the Grim. By himself he follows the same style of quickly attacking, getting a few quick strikes in before backing up again to reassess his situation.

WEAPON

Name: Occams Razer

Primary Form: A blade extending from his arm composed of two blades in a triangle, the sharp part of the blade is painted with a electric blue that make it seem to glow with a slight light. When not in use on his right arm the two parts of the blade pivots backwards and retract into slots on his arm. On the left arm he has a brace that mimics his right arm, the blades retract back into a small protective crevices so that it doesn't hurt Serin by accident.

Secondary Form: On his right arm the blades have the ability to stop part way between his arm and being blade so that are in a line, like this it can be used as a crossbow that shoots bolts that create lots of smoke, glitter, and a loud bang on impact. It can be used to blind Grim by covering their face in smoke and blinding them with the flash of light that accompanies its explosion. These bolts don't do very much damage and if he wants to use his crossbow offensively he has to use normal crossbow bolts which have an effective range of 60 meters to penetrate flesh, and in order to penetrate armor he has to be within 20 or less meters.

Dust Functions: Dust can be inserted into his arm and used to power up his blade, each dust changes the power of the edge of the blade. So fire causes the blade to become very hot, lighting electrifies it, and gravity dust pushes back enemies when he hits them with the blade.

History: Serin created the first version of Occam's Razor when he was learning how to build weapons, and built upon it over time, his mentor helped him make and refine the blade constantly citing Occam's Razor as a rule for the internal mechanisms. After Serin left his mentor for learning combat he kept making it better and eventually named it Occam's Razor so that he never forgets his old mentor.
