Kisha was quite surprised when Calen jumped after her. She had prepared for a variety of reactions, but that was unexpected even to her. Well, not to say that it bothered her. She had even thought about the possibility of pulling him into the water with some trick or otherwise persuade him to follow her, but here he was, jumping into the water himself! By now her body heated up and made the water around her having a pleasant feeling of warmth, so she let herself float on the water surface while staring into the sky. "Well, you didn't give me any time to warn you, but it's nothing a little movement can't fix!"  she said in her usual cheerful voice. Her gaze didn't turn away from the starry sky, admiring it in all its beauty, at least not until she heard a certain phrase, "Ha! That sounds good on my list of 'compliments I've gotten'; I'm more special than the fish you can catch here. Well, anyway, sorry for screwing up your dish. Let me make it up to you by replacing it. I don't think I have any fish left in stock but given the cold we both have tomorrow, I suppose something else will work too." Soup wasn't a bad start, but a simple soup would be way too simple and boring.

"I hope you don't mind spicy curry, if I recall correctly I have some ghost peppers left. Trust me, you breathe fire after a bowl of that! How did the saying go again? 'Feed a cold, starve a fever.' "

Sorry for the late response!

I've limited the duration of his semblance to 4 strikes with thirty seconds each. I also leave the Range Weakness in. The duration of his semblance will make him a little more frugal to use it, and it should be possible to kill thirty seconds in a fight against a long-ranged opponent. And in order for Arcano to attack, he would first have to get near the ranged opponent, and then they could recognize him either by his eyes or by the sounds his tail makes.

If there is still a problem with that, I can see if I can add another weakness that doesn't stand in contradiction to his strengths.

"Really?" Kisha asked with a wide grin, "I've considered you more of a dare-boy. Well then, let me think. What's the most embarrassing thing that's happened to you since you arrived at Beacon?"

Dawn slowly lowered her arm at the last statement of the miner's leader. She didn't like the idea of ​​turning back now, but if they want it that way, they should get it that way. As she lowered her arm, her other hand moved to her tight-bag, opened it and pulled out her scroll. They still haven't seemed to notice her yet, so she snapped a couple of photos as she slowly moved backwards to fade more and more into the darkness and away from the scene. Good that she always dims the light of her scroll and mutes it before she goes on a mission. As fast as she got the scroll out and took the pictures, she stowed it away again. Since she just pressed the snap button and didn't really care about the focus and quality of the images, there were some useless or too dark ones, but they might still help. But to know that for sure she'd have to take a look at the pictures later.

When Dawn turned to the rest of the group, her eyes fell on Camelia. So she came back after all. Dawn gave her a short shrug as she walked past her and caught up with the rest of the group. "Let's wait until we're up before we discuss anything."

Once Mikado had returned the bag to Billy, he resumed his usual distance to the group as they got ready to return to Beacon. He didn't even know why he still did it. After all, walking beside them doesn't mean he had to talk to them too. This led to him not being able to understand Billys muffled scream. The others seemed to have heard it, judging by their expression and reaction. Judging by Smokey, it was probably something bad. Honestly, he was surprised that Smokey hadn't completely snapped yet. Well, whatever Billy shouted into her bag, she would have to deal with it on her own.

Shrike? The name sounded uncomfortably familiar to her. She must have read something about it, but the memory was blurry. All she could remember was that it was bad. But Calen doesn't seem to be a bad person, on the contrary, even. So his family couldn't be all that bad, right? Kisha decided to leave the topic at that.

"Well, you don't have to be concerned about the 'birth thing', but yes, that's one of the reasons I prefer adopting," she said with a soft grin, "but I don't have to worry about that now. I don't plan on suddenly show up with a kid in the classroom, though, now that I think about it, I'd like to see Professor Nox's face when I do." And that changed her grin again to a loud laugh. The image alone was hilarious, no matter how unlikely it was. Maybe it was that funny because it was so unlikely to happen. It took a while until she caught herself again and rubbed a laugh-tear from the eye. "Well, I always wanted to have a pet, but I think I'm more of a dog person. However, I think pets are not allowed on the campus, even though I've already seen a bear walking around here."

Calen's inaudible muttering earned him a confused and slightly worried look, but since he seemed to have snapped out of it, Kisha decided not to ask. For now, that is. She agreed with a nod at Calen's statements. It was always nice to meet someone with the same views. Especially on such a sensitive topic.
"Tit for tat, huh?" Well then. The current human situation... how should I phrase it? Needs some improvement. It has already gotten better in the last few years, at least in some places of Remnant, but there are still too many humans putting others down just because they are different. I did a lot of sightseeing back in Atlas during the Vital Festival. Anyway. In any case, you already notice at the atmosphere that something is wrong. I met there with a Faunus friend of mine... Let's say it like this, For Humans, people behave very inhumane. There are just as many human criminals as there are Faunus criminals. I even heard there is a person going around, giving firearms to people. Just obnoxious. Sometimes I can advocate the actions of White Fang. Not that I want to endorse the terrorist attacks. It's just that they didn't turn out like this on their own. The white fang were the peaceful ones, not us. And still, we blame all on them as soon as they attack a 'no Faunus allowed' Café. We humans should start to accept the Faunus as they are. There are bad ones too, yes, but most of them are only misunderstood and led astray."

As she finished she leaned back and looked up at the sky. There was one more thing she wanted to do. Kisha stood up again and took off her coat. "It's getting late, maybe we should turn back soon." She looked at the shore where they started. They were pretty far away and it would take quite some time before they came back. Well, here was the best time and place. The water under the boat was calm and nicely reflected the starlight. Perfect. Kisha turned her back to the water and looked at Calen with another grin, "I'm definitely sick tomorrow!"

All that was heard after was a loud splash as she let herself fall backwards into the water. The boat wobbled with the unruly movement it needed to get into the water, but the wobbling stopped soon. After a short while, Kisha stuck her head out of the water and looked up giggling, "Prrrrr, Okay, colder than expected." She slowly began to swim around the boat to heat her body a bit, "Otherwise it's great! No regrets!"

"Guess it's settled then, truth or dare it is," Kisha said as she packed away the cards. "I will go ahead and start, alright?" she asked, but started before anyone could object, "So, Ismael, Truth or dare?"

Okaaay, changed the Semblance. Long story short, I took her pronounced intelligence and just turned it into a semblance. Basically, she can store more information over a longer time and can analyze stuff faster and better. Plus, she's able to multitask on a, let's say 'high' level.

Character Creation / Arcano Blar Baldwin

CHARACTER

Name: Arcano Blar Baldwin

Age: 18

Species and Gender: Peacock Faunus, Male

Symbol: An abstract dream catcher with a black eye in its middle

Occupation: First year Beacon Student

Appearance:

Arcano is a 5'5" tall young man, weighing approximately 143 Ibs. He has Black and curly hair that is kept relatively short and fades into a strong tone of turquoise at the tips. His eyes are held in a similar turquoise-greenish tone and have a rather bright, luminous effect.

Around his neck is a dark blue neckerchief with two short tails that stick out on both sides. He wears a thin black coat that reaches to his waist and has his symbol emblazoned on its back. There are two separate belts fastened around his waist, that have multiple, smaller pouches attached to it. On his hands and arms, he wears turquoise, arm-length gauntlets, which are pulled over the sleeves of the coat. He wears black trousers and black boots with a turquoise pattern. The boots are different in length, the right one reaches almost the knee. His hair, as well as his gauntlets and shoes, are decorated with bluish feathers.

As a Faunus, he also has an animal trait, which in his case is a long peacock tail. Like the ones of a real peacock, the length of the tail is about 4,5" and therefore drags on the ground behind him. His tail unfolds in a fan-like manner in a variety of situations, mainly by a strong presence of emotions like excitement, joy, anger or fear.


History:

Aracao was left on the doorstep of a Faunus couple as a baby, too young to remember. The Faunus couple, living inside the walls of Atlas at that time, and parents of an already two-year-old daughter, thought long about what to do with the baby. Should they just bring him to an orphanage? There weren't any indications where the baby's parents were or why it landed on their doorstep out of all places. The only thing that came with the child was a dark blue box with a weird symbol on it. Inside were a dark blue neckerchief and a note with a name written on it, Arcano Blar. The couple eventually decided to take Arcano and raise him as their own, assuming that it has some deeper meaning that he ended up with them than any other family. 

It's no secret that Solitas and Atlas in general, weren't quite tolerant of Faunus, and Arcano had to learn this the hard way. He got insulted again and again as soon as he left the house and he couldn't enter most of the local stores. Arcano didn't know many other Faunus, there weren't really any, where he lived, the only ones were far beyond his age. His only friend was a boy named Jaro. He was one of the few who didn't treat him as a lower kind and accepted him as he was. It was not that everyone bullied or hated him, but most didn't do anything when they saw how badly he was treated. They were too afraid it would hit them as well if they were nice to Arcano or help him.

Time passed and eventually, Arcano's family decided to move to Vale. For years they had been saving money to get out of Atlas and their bad condition, and now it was finally time to do so. Arcano had to leave everything behind, but except for Jaro, there was nothing that kept him in this place. While packing his things he came across a dark blue box with a rather weird symbol on it and his name inside. When he asked his 'parents', they told him how he was abandoned and left on their doorstep, and that they didn't know about his real parents. Disappointed, but by no means angry with his adoptive family, Arcano informed himself about the box and its symbol. He eventually found something. The Symbol belonged to Lunox Blar, a Huntress that worked in the shadows, and who went missing several years ago. Nobody had seen her since.

Arcano had never even thought to ever become a Huntsmen. Fight every day against various monsters and put his life on the line? But after he found out about his origin, something clicked inside him that blended out any other option for his future. There was only one thing he wanted to do now, become a Huntsmen. Over time, more reasons accumulated. Being a hunter was a job that many respected. With a childhood marked by racism, this was the best step towards improvement! After the family moved to Vale, Arcano attended a Combat school and later enrolled at the Huntsman Academy Beacon.


Personality:

Arcano is a rather shy and jumpy person. If you meet him for the first time, you might think that the job of a huntsman is straight up inappropriate for him. However, if you take the time to get to know him you will see that he is a caring and loving person with a burning desire to reach his goals.

Overall, Arcano is a very calm person who can keep a cool head even in heated situations. He will be scared, but he manages to overplay that fear with determination and when he feels like he has reached his end, he asks himself what made him go that far. He has a goal to reach. And he will reach it, no matter the cost. Since Arcano had to endure a lot of unfairness in his life, he has developed a strong sense of justice and will jump, even against his better judgment, into any kind of situation to help straighten things up again. He has little faith in himself, but the more he can stand up for others and encouraging them to fulfill their goals.

He never gets angry. He is very emotional, but this comes to show more in other emotions as in joy or sadness. On the other hand, he also has a strong aversion to fighting. He understands that you can't be a Huntsman without fighting, but he sees the fighting he does mainly as a way to defend. He would never enter a fight if there is another way to resolve the conflict. Well, that goes for everything except Grimm, which he, like most of humanity, sees as beings that must be destroyed at all costs.

Arcano had to struggle a lot with Abandonment issues in the past and has a general fear of humans. Nothing extreme, but he keeps away from them out of instinct. He has some problems with social interaction and it takes a while for him to trust someone. As soon as he befriends someone, he sticks to them and tries desperately to keep the friendship alive, which can often end up in the exact opposite.


Aura and Semblance:

Arcano's aura has a turquoise-green (#40E0D0) color.

His semblance, which he has dubbed "Shadow Dive", allows him to hide in his own shadow and to walk around the area almost invisible.

For that, he needs his own shadow and a generally dark or shady place. How dark it is is irrelevant, as long as there is a hint of darkness, he can use his semblance. He then covers himself with his own shadow, which lets him disappear into the darkness around him. How much of his body is shrouded in shadow is entirely up to him, but everything that is shrouded won't be visible to him either. This is especially a problem for his eyes. With the shadows in front of them, he can't see anything, which is why he always leaves this spot free. This is also the biggest hint to recognize him in this form, as his eyes have a rather striking and bright color. His Semblance doesn't work if the only source of a shadow is himself since then he is shrouded in a shadow, but he can't cast one to match it anymore. His Shadow form also immediately breaks if he steps out of the shadows. He can move freely without worrying about his form, however, the shadow shell may break when Arcano loses focus. He doesn't have to concentrate all the time on the hull to keep it upright, however, he needs a certain focus on it. If this focus is broken by some unexpected event, the shadow falls away immediately. He can use his Semblance 4 times with thirty seconds each. After the thirty seconds are up, Arcano must wait at least a minute before he can use it again.

The form offers Arcano no extra protection against attacks of any kind and also doesn't dampen the noises he makes. In addition to himself, he can wrap other objects in a shadow too, but this only works when said object is in direct contact with him, as soon as this contact ends the shadow will disappear. He unlocked his semblance when he hid away from bullies in a dark alley. His panic gained the upper hand and unknowingly awakened his semblance.


Combat Behavior:

Arcano doesn't like fighting, at least not against humans or Faunus. He will do it, but not without first trying to find a more peaceful way out. In the battles himself, he keeps a cool head and attacks with thought-out and precise attacks. He tries to find possible weaknesses of his opponents and uses those weaknesses against them. Even if it doesn't look like it, Arcano is mainly active in melee combat and has surprising strength for his stature, with which he can hold his own more than enough. He is agile and fast, attacks with many consecutive attacks. This implies that he uses up a lot of stamina, and it also occasionally leaves him inattentive between attacks, as he takes a breath.

Arcano has the most problems in ranged combat. Not only does he have no long-range weapon, but he also has problems fighting enemies that are ranged-specialized. He has a perfect vision in the dark and his senses as Faunus are already a bit better than those of a normal human being, but he otherwise has rather bad eyesight and often recognizes enemies long-ranged attacks too late. On the other hand, Arcano has some problems with his focus while fighting. He can easily concentrate on one or more opponents at a time, but once he has done that, his concentration remains on this exact number of opponents, which keeps him inattentive for any unexpected attacks.


WEAPON

Name: Cobweb

Primary Form:

The gauntlets on his arms are each equipped with two individual blades. Both are normally retracted and hardly recognizable for the naked eye. The first blade is a side blade, which is mainly used to inflict minor cuts when rushing by. The second blade is placed exactly over the back of his hand and is used as a normal dagger for piercing and slitting. Both of the blades are relatively long, but that doesn't change the fact that you have to get very close to the enemy to use them.

Also attached to the gauntlets, slightly further back than the dagger blade, is a spool with wire threads. The threads are very thin and almost invisible, but they are also very robust and, above all, sharp. The spool is connected to small metal caps on his fingers. Arcano can shoot from each of his hands 5 of these threads. The threads are mainly used for building traps during a fight, but they can also be used directly in combat. The threads are very sharp, definitely sharp enough to hurt someone, but not sharp enough to cause great damage or to break any solid objects. However, they can be used to squeeze a person, or grim inside, causing damage. Since the threads are very solid they don't tear by themselves, but they can be cut through easily by a blade. The firing range of the threads doesn't have a long reach, a maximum of 12", but after they attached, they can be extended as long there is wire left in the spool. They stick to an object or person until they are naturally severed. Since the threads are automatically retractable, Arcano can use them for extra movability or can use it to reach higher platforms.

To his two belts are multiple extra spools attached, which can be replaced if necessary.

Dust Functions:

The numerous spools on Arcano's belts have Dust inserted in their foundation. The threads themselves are not modified, tough through a special liquid-like substance, the dust can travel from the spool through the thread without damaging it, at least for a certain period of time. After the Dust is used up, the thread will be useless and cannot be reused again. When and how the dust is activated is up to Arcano.

History: Self-made when he was 16

Dawn watched the movements of the miners with narrowed eyes. A warning shot to their feet may be enough to make them shrink back and consider their idea of an attack, but that would also reveal her presence. They didn't seem to have noticed her yet, and the longer she could use that to her advantage the better. Nonetheless, she held up her arm, with Phoenix Flame still aimed at their opponents. First, it was on the group of miners, but then she shifted her focus to the drill and the person inside. She could certainly incapacitate it. Everything would have to be perfectly timed for that though. And what to do after? Who knows how the miners would react to her destroying their machine. With a quick glance to the side, she reassured herself that Dragon's breath was loaded with the right kind of dust. It was risky but possible. She only needs to wait for the right moment. As belligerent as the workers looked, none of them had attacked yet, it would be a mistake for them to make the first move. The four workers were all armed, this shouldn't be a problem for Toast and Revya though. It would surprise her if it was. With this said, she continued to focus on the drill.

"Well, we have more than enough of that, right guys?" Kisha asked the group. After all, it was not like they had any obligations today, so time shouldn't be a big deal. As she waited, more or less, for an answer, she started to scoop the cards together and place them in a stack. The game was nice and fun, but she wasn't sure if her teammates enjoyed it as much as she did.

...And welcome to a new episode of Death battle, today a battle royal between the members of team BSSM!


So before I took a closer look at the profiles I thought Mikado would win. Or actually, wait. Smokey would win. And even after reading I still think he would have a good chance. I think Serin would have a big problem against Mikado. Mikado's Bo gives him a wider range than Serin's arm-blades and Mikado is able to keep his distance. Plus, he has Kiro. The crossbow part would be a bigger problem, but the ammo is limited and a crossbow is usually slower than bullets, so you should at least be able to dodge a few of them. I also don't think the clones would help him a lot in this fight. I'm not so sure about Smokey and Billy though. Billy still has her hammer, but Smokey has nothing to help him in close combat except... well... shoot.

Mikado might have a few more problems against Billy. Billy and Longarm probably do more damage than Serin with his crossbow. But Mikado would have the range advantage in close combat again. And well, Kiro is still pretty much a second fighter. Again, I don't think that her semblance could do much here. Smokey against Billy would be very interesting. Smokey is a lot slower than Billy through all the equipment, but I think Smokey can definitely do a lot of damage with matchstick. I leave this scenario open for now.

Good, last would be Smokey and Mikado. Smokey would have the upper hand in ranged- and Mikado in close combat. But I think Smokey would win the fight. Mikado is a lot faster than Smokey, but Smokey could change everything in one shot. Since Mikado is still so reserved to the rest of BSSM, I don't think they already know about the pain-link between Kiro and Mikado, but let's assume they do know. Serin and Billy's attacks could certainly do some damage, but I think with a well-aimed shot from Good News, Smokey could take Kiro down. The shot hits Kiro, most likely consuming his complete health, and Mikado is distracted by the pain long enough that Smokey has the opportunity for more attacks. Of course, factors like the environment and everything can play a role, but I think Smokey has good cards. And if all of them smashes their heads together at the same time, I think it would still end up with either Mikado or Smokey as the winner. Mikado, because he has the second fighter and probably the best opportunities in close combat, and Smokey because he has abnormal firepower.
