Kin Sakana
« on: July 29, 2018, 10:49:09 AM »
CHARACTER

Name: Kin Sakana

Age: 17

Species and Gender: Male Fish Faunus, Golden Koi Variant

Symbol:  A golden wheel with a dollar sign in place of the spokes.

Occupation: 1st Year Beacon Student, Part-Time Model

Height: 5 feet 4 inches

Weight: 130 pounds

Appearance: Despite being male, Kin is extremely feminine-looking, to the point where he has a slight complex about it.

He has delicate pale skin that makes him seem like a porcelain doll, and molten gold irises that seem to twinkle in the light. His face is heart-shaped, with a cute button nose, and full pink lips angled to look like he's usually pouting. He has a tin bit of fat in all the right places, his face seeming to be plush and soft, and his gold-colored hair is cut into a bob cut, the tips curling just the slightest and ending at the earlobes.

His clothes are casual, with a hint of innocent seduction. He wears a short-sleeved white v-neck that exposed a bit of his collarbone, and loose denim jeans that fall just the slightest, as if tempting anyone to pull them down. He wears black sneakers with gold outlines, and painted koi on the sides, and a good luck charm from his parents with the kanji for 'Fortune' around his neck.

He has slender limbs that sit on the fence of 'unhealthy', and hit that perfect ratio where he could have been an arm model and made thousands of Lien. However, his most notable (and to him, his most annoying) feature is his perfect peach-shaped bubble butt that draws the attention of both boys and girls, and had earned him many a fan.

Being a Golden Koi Faunus, he has golden koi scales running down his sides, and along his fore arms, and can spend a longer time underwater than most. It also makes him a swimming pro.

He dropkicks anyone who mentions how his butt looks.

History: Born in the frontier town of Hisuio to a human father and a Koi Faunus mother, Kin Sakana was a Mistralian frontierman the day he began to walk. He was taught many survival tips and learned to do everything hands-on. From skinning a fish, to building a rain collecter, to hunting, he was there, being taught by his parents.

Growing up, he was outed for looking extremely feminine, developing a small complex over that. However, he still made friends with people who accepted him for his looks, and became tightly-knit with him. The town was small, and one of the people Kin had befriended was the local delinquent, so every just kept their mouths shut and moved on. During a routine foraging run with Hunters as escorts when he was 13, there was a heavy thunderstorm, and they had to camp at the foot of a cliff, the top of which where Hisuio was. Lightning struck the cliff face, breaking it apart, and revealing a freshwater spring....which immediately began to pour a torrent of water down the cliff, cutting off their way back, and creating a pseudo-waterfall. Upon waking up, they were also faced with a horde of various Beowolves and Ursai heading towards them, the Hunters already preparing to fight while the adults would take the kids and hide. With nothing but pure determination, a small knife, and his Fish Faunus heritage, Kin stripped down to his underwear dove into the waterfall, beginning to climb the cliff and using the knife to chip footholds for him to use whenever he ran out of places to grab onto. With his sheer determination, he powered through the waterfall, climbing to the top of the cliff, which appears to those at the bottom as him swimming up the waterfall, and called for help, directing the townspeople to the bottom of the cliff, where the Hunters had already dispatched the Grimm and protected the foragers. Exhausted, he fainted, sleeping for a full day before he woke up.

Getting an offer from Signal Academy for his feat, due to one of the Hunters having a connection with a professor there, he accepted to the encouragement of his parents, and traveled to Vale, where he began four years of coursework to become a Hunter. However, he was still a Faunus, and outed for his race, and bullied throughout the school year, though he fought back whenever people made fun of his appearance, quickly earning a reputation as the 'Golden Demon of Signal', for his pragmatic way of fighting and his scales. He was confessed to multiple times, by both boys and girls, but rejected all of them, having not been prepared to engage in a relationship.

In his third year in Signal, he built his main weapon, the 'Shibuki', and began training with it, taking to it like....well, like a fish to water. He discovered that he had a proficiency with the naginata, and quickly gew in skill with 'Shibuki', while keeping the knife he used to climb the cliff as a secret back weapon, just in case.

Graduating from Signal, he applied for Beacon, and was accepted due to the recommendations his teachers sent to the headmaster, Alban Inverno. He went to a club to celebrate......The 'Drunk Elephant', a well known club in Vale, both for it's high-end tech, and the criminals that flocked there for information by Pyra Rosso, the club owner, who he quickly befriended when he offered life advice while she was going through a midlife crisis, not knowing she was an info broker. He quickly became a source of advice for the club owner, the two growing close enough to be familiar with each other.

Unknowingly ending up with a link to the underworld, he quickly became a valued customer of the 'Drunk Elephant', gaining VIP status due to his connections with Pyra, and befriending the various staff over time whenever he helped them out. Even when learning of Pyra's main job as an info broker, he still stays in touch with her. Though he had to explain to her and everyone in the club that he was actually a guy, to their shock.

Before he actually attended Beacon, he was scouted for a modelling company, and became a part-time model for both masculine and feminine clothes, quickly gaining prestige for his looks, and became the 'Golden Princess', due to the owner pranking him by spreading rumors that he was a girl, much to his chagrin. Whenever he has a free day, or enough time, he goes to Vale and models for any new clothes for magazines and such.

Personality: Kind and generous, Kin is often helping others with their problems, as part of his nature. He tends to create little ripples among the community, nudging them towards better directions at his encouragement. He is a bit extroverted, but usually keeps to himself, due to past experiences with bullying, and fear that those he tries to befriend will eventually bully him as well. He is generally open-minded and flexible, preferring to try new things and go with the flow at times. He is also relaxed and calm, having learned to keep calm in a situation because panicking could get you killed outside the Kingdoms. However, should you mention how feminine he looks, he will flip out and promptly try to turn you into chunky salsa and feed you to wild dogs.

Aura and Semblance: His Aura lives by his name, shining a bright gold and is a bit above average for his age, but not a lot. It protects him from incoming physical damage, and heals minor to moderate wounds.

Kin's Semblance "Ripple Effect", is extremely weak. With it, anything Kin touches will ripple continuously should he will it, until he removes his hand. However, his Semblance does not change the physical composition of what he touches, nor does it make it elastic and such. As a result, his Semblance is harmless when touching things like water and clothing, or other elastic materials. However, were he to use it on solid, sturdy materials like wood, metal, or even bones, the material would be unable to handle the ripples, and when he removes his hand, they will promptly break, ranging from a single ripple, which causes a slight fracture for bones, and a crack or bending for anything else, to a large number of ripples, in which the material will explode from the sheer strain of the rippling. Not only that, but if Kin were to touch something with another thing inside, like a matryoshka doll with a series of smaller matryoshka dolls inside it, all the dolls would be affected, the inner dolls to a lesser extent. In being a versatile, yet weak Semblance, it is underestimated and perfectly capable of severely wounding others if not taken seriously.

On a side note, it doesn't affect individuals with intact Aura. If their Aura breaks, however, his Semblance will affect them. His Semblance only affects the object of what he touches for now, and requires direct touching, but if the object he's touching has something inside, the inner objects would also be affected to a lesser extent, to 'adapt' to the outermost object's constantly changing physical state.

Combat Behavior:  Being weak physically, in Hunting standards, when it comes to combat, he stays away from close combat against larger opponents, preferring mid-to-long-range combat, staying not too close, but not too far from the fight. He's also a bit low in the stamina department, leading to him having to conserve stamina while fighting, which could limit his combat proficiency. Kin fights smart, using any and every advantage at his disposal. If put in a close combat situation, he will redirect any fists or kicks, turn other people's attacks against them, use his Semblance to disorient Grimm and cause muscle spasms, and use enemies as springboards to take Grimm out. Otherwise, he stays a small distance away, stabbing and slashing with Shibuki, or blowing Grmm into little bits with Shibuki's rifle form. He wastes no movements, going in, quickly killing a Grimm, and moving on before the Grimm can land a hit on him.

WEAPON

Name: Shibuki

Primary Form: An azure-colored naginata with a tidal wave pattern running down the shaft. It has a two-foot long, inch-wide shaft, and it's blade is 15 inches long and forged with a compound metal of titanium and steel. On the other end is a bronzed counterweight that also packs a mean punch if someone was hit by it. Primarily used for slashing, stabbing, killing, and possibly acting as a spit roast.

Secondary Form: A nine-sectioned whip where all the nine sections are 'chained together' by a small amount of miniscule 'string' that allows the nine sections to bend in any direction. The 'string' is actually multiple paper-thin steel fibers woven together to form an extremely tough string-like thread that holds all nine sections together. The last of the nine sections is the naginata's blade.

Tertiary Form: A bayoneted semi-automatic Rifle that fires any kind of Dust rounds up to 30 feet away, though he favors Water Dust rounds. Not really much else to say.

Dust Functions: Other than firing Dust rounds in it's rifle form, it has no other Dust function.

History: Built in the Kin's third year of Signal, it is a naginata that houses both a nine-sectioned whip form and a bayoneted semi-automatic rifle form, a rare three-formed weapon, with Kin having used multiple steel fibers woven together to hold the nine separate parts together, leaving enough room to install firing mechanisms within the space. It has been perfected and upgraded over time, to a form most suitable for him and him alone. The hunting rifle can store up to 15 Dust rounds per magazine, and the whip length is 4 feet. The naginata form is 3 feet and three inches long

Functions: When shifting into it's nine-sectioned whip form, the naginata divided into nine parts, each with mostly-closed ends except for multiple woven steel fibers that hold the nine sections together. When shifting into it's rifle form, a fourth of the non-bladed end of the naginata shifts 30 degrees down, and the blade moves down, becoming a large bayonet. A trigger appears from the angle of the 'gun handle' and the 'barrel', and a a space opens up near the trigger for the magazine, while on the other end, a hold opens up, revealing the muzzle. 

WEAPON

Name: None (Though others call it 'Rockcutter')

Primary Form: A primitive bronze knife, with no other functions. It's only notable features are it's durability and it's slighty above average blade. Acts as a backup weapon should Kin lose Shibuki

Secondary Form: None

Tertiary Form: None

Dust Functions: Earth Dust imbued to prolong it, and make sure it wouldn't break or rust. Not much other than that.

History: The knife Kin used to create footholds for himself when he climbed the cliff back to Hisuio. A memento for him, and doubles as a concealed backup weapon.

((As per Monty Oum's color rule, Kin's named after gold. RIP, Monty Oum.))

Well I suppose I will continue my review on here, clothes of high tier villains have been shown to be infused with dust yes but again no weapons have ever been shown to be infused with dust. That is my issue. Cinder doesn't actually take many hits on her clothes through out the fight and definitely a lot less than if it was done on her weapons. Not only is dust explosive it is also limited so unless you want to have to make a new weapon every now and then I would recommend removing references to imbuing. We do have some rules on the subject.

Quote
'Infusion: Infusion is the archaic and highly dangerous system of utilizing Dust in combat. One can infuse Dust with their clothing, or even directly to their skin in order to gain the benefits of it. This is a wildly dangerous and painful practice that, while not outlawed, is very rarely practiced. The advent of technology has allowed for safer applications of Dust in combat while maintaining the same firepower, or in many cases increasing it. As such, the benefits of infusion do not outweigh the disadvantages. Infused dust is known to spontaneously combust if hit without aura shielding, inflicting significant damage or death to the person wearing it. Infusion also does not grant abilities/attacks that technology cannot already create.

If your character infuses Dust, you need to very clearly explain why they do it, why they don't use technology(which is safer and more powerful) and how they are still alive.'

So yea either explain why Kin is hitting people with an over complicated stick of dynamite or simply remove it.

Secondly Grimm aren't really built the same way normal animals are being spawned from shadowy pools, not needing to eat and instead surviving off the negative emotions around them. Then have muscles in any real form is questionable but regardless can you change the word enemies to Grimm in the following passage.

Quote
'his Semblance to disorient enemies and cause muscle spasms.'

Hhhhmm. Good point. I suppose he'll favor Water Dust rounds as a replacement. Should I details the materials used to make the blade, to give it a reason to be durable?

Your aura protects the weapon but feel free to go into more detail in its construction if you want.

Changed it so the blade is made of a compound metal that's extremely durable, and fixed everything.

The people from his village call it 'Rockcutter', and it's because the knife was the same one that cut through solid rock to make Kin footholds to climb that cliff. Kin himself doesn't really call it anything, so the name is really just a placeholder if names are required. I can add that to the description if you want

Nah, names aren't a requirement. The way it was worded seemed sort of like one of those edgy "Yeah, everyone else calls this X but I don't care" things instead of just the towns people calling it that. I don't think they really would anyway, I mean if I were in their place I'd just call it the knife because what other knife would I be talking about. Buuuuut it's rwby so whatever. Approved and moved.
