« on: September 11, 2016, 02:14:57 AM »
CHARACTER

Name: Kale Bomvu (Bomvu meaning red in Xhosa)
Nickname Foxy

Age: 21 Born Arashi 1, 61 AC

Species and Gender: Female, Fox Faunus

Symbol: A white fox head howling on a crimson circle

Occupation: Ex-white fang explosives expert, Third year student at Beacon Academy

Appearance: Standing six foot two inches tall, this 150 pound woman is thin but surprisingly strong. Her shoulder-length, white hair is unkempt and flows just over her shoulders, with two furry white fox ears popping up just out of her hair. Her alabaster skin is contrasted by a red, tribal wolf tattoo on her left shoulder and a tattoo of a wolf with a shield wielding woman on its back, running up her left leg, she has a pair of deep set, crimson red eyes. She wears a pair of custom made red headphones (like the ones Ruby was wearing in episode 1 but redesigned for her fox ears) and a strange silver necklace in she shape of a fox head with inlaid rubys for eyes. She wears a black and white striped jacket that is cut off just above her stomach with no sleeves and a red interior that covers a burn scar on her left shoulder. The only armor she wears is a pair of scuffed, red leather bracers with a slot for a small dust vial(usually fire on the left and ice on the right). Her white furred tail is sticking out of the back of a pair of black and white striped jeans. The left leg of her pants have the entire outer half of the fabric missing, with the occasional strap of fabric looping around her leg to connect to the fabric hugging her inner thigh. Standing out in stark contrast is a red bandanna tied around her left knee. Her waist is adorned with a silver sash, tied in an intricate knot with ten large pouches equally interspersed five of which are filled with different types of dust, one is filled with varying types of crystals, and a scabbard where her sword hangs, and from her left hip. Her feet are adorned with a pair of custom make combat boots with boot knives carefully tucked inside.

History: Kale grew up in a small farming village just outside Vacuo with her family. Her father, a guardsman for the village, taught her about the Grimm and how to survive, both in the wilds and within the civilized confines of the kingdoms. Her mother was a huntress who was forced to retire because of a near fatal injury. She taught her how to use her aura intelligently and how to fight, and sometimes she would teach her about how to mix dust without getting everyone killed. Her brother Marcus, is only two years younger than her and was hunting when their mother returned to the village nearly killed during her mission. All of Kale's friends called her "Foxy" because it was the only nickname that she would allow them to use without breaking anything, when she was about five she asked her parents if she could get a tattoo when they asked what she would get she said "the family crest tattooed on my arm" her father smiled with a deep sense of pride and said yes.

When she was younger she would play with her spectral foxes for fun. For a few minutes at a time she would make them dart and frolic around to kill time, until either she got tired from the expenditure of aura or people started complaining about the explosions, but that wasn't always from the foxes, she would often get into the towns dust supply and try mixing the different types like her mother had taught her. When she and her friends reached thirteen and a half years of age, they became got tired of the slow-paced village life that seemed too boring to them. In order to try to harness their energy into something more productive for the village, Kale's father offered them all jobs guarding the village. They all accepted without hesitation, but after a couple of years of this they realized they wanted to do more...they wanted to make a difference in the world, but they didn't know how to do that. During a few of their patrols, they heard of an organization claimed to help the faunus world wide and would accept any faunus who was interested. The thought of helping the plight of faunus throughout the realms piqued their curiosity enough to look into the White Fang. Realizing that the tenants of the White Fang could achieve what they wanted in life, Kale and her friends joined up. When they attended their first meeting as White Fang initiates, all of her friends were hooked. Strangely enough, Kale wasn't sure what it was that rubbed her wrong, but she knew there was something she didn't like about the white fang, but she figured why not give it a try, if nothing else, she could always leave at a later time.

After a year and a half of training, the White Fang had moved her group to Vale for their last few training missions, a few days before they arrived Kale was making some dust grenades for a mission when one of them exploded creating a napalm on her left shoulder, she was rushed to the white fang medic who treated her burns but told her it was going to scar. After they arrived in Vale, she began to feel deeply conflicted with how she envisioned the groups "help" for faunus-kind after she was involved in a mission to capture Theodore Williams. She had decided she definitely did not like the way the White Fang was being operated, so she decided that she wanted out.

Later that night she tried to slip out of camp unnoticed, but was caught by a guard who turned out to be her best friend Eric. As he started to raise the alarm she knew what she had to do...so as a tear ran down her cheek, her lips parted as she silently said, "I'm sorry." just as she ran him through with her blade. Crimsonfang's unusual soft crimson glow blazed brightly with Eric's blood dripping off the point and then fading back to its softer hue as she withdrew the blade from his now lifeless body. She wiped the tear from her cheek and looked down at him with remorse and then she ran away. She knew she had few options left for her, so she decided to become a huntress like her mother and she went and applied to Beacon Academy. The entry process consisted of numerous tests, that were to evaluate her mental capacity, her physical strengths and limits, her combat prowess and her understanding and use of her aura in order to prove she was good enough to enter Beacon. Through dedicated concentration, physical endurance and persistence, she passed the entrance evaluations with flying colors. Here she hoped that Beacon Academy would be able to provide the additional knowledge, training, and most importantly the safety she needed to protect her from the white fang, and if she made friends, she hoped that eventually she could trust them enough to share her secret and if need be give her life to protect them.

Her first years at Beacon were quite eventful she met a lot of new people some of which she did not get along with, while others she quickly got to know and learned to trust, one of which being her girlfriend Alexis Resister they have spent the last two years being together and Kale knows that she would die for Alexis if she needed it but she hopes it never comes to that, after her first year dating Alexis, Kale got another tattoo this time it was on her leg she had it specially made to depict her and Alexis being together for the long run, during her time at the school she also ran a few missions and had some fun doing them,  she had a few more run-ins with the White Fang which never turned out good for them, now she was in her third year of school and she is looking forward to having another great year.

Personality: A semi-shy person if she doesn't know you, but after you get past her shyness she is a vibrant, fun loving, person who is very dedicated to her work, but she is an aggressive woman who doesn't take crap from anyone if they are showing racism to the faunus, and because of her past she doesn't trust people as fast as most would like, but if you do earn her trust she would gladly die fighting for you. She also loves to read all kinds of books, she listens to music almost constantly because it helps her focus on a task outside of combat, and she fights with all her heart but makes sure to throw in curve balls to throw others off their game, she is a vary passionate woman and is not someone to take lightly.

Aura and Semblance: Color: Crimson Red
Spectral Foxes: standing three feet tall and four feet long and weighing a staggering sixty pounds, these large foxes that can knock over and kill a full grown Ursa minor if they tried, they depend on more fast attacks and while they are quick and agile, they don't hit that hard unless they jump or lunge with their weight, Kale can summon between one and five of these specters comfortably during combat but can go up to nine(emergencies use only), spectral dire foxes that have a 5% reduction of her aura pool per fox. The foxes will fight for her and explode on command equivalent to that of a hand grenade (15 Meters= 45 Feet radius), in Kale's bracers are two slots where a small vial of dust can be dispensed on to the foxes and give them different effects(no dust= normal explosion, Fire= Molotov, Ice= Freezing, Lightning= Electric shock, etc.), but Kale has to mentally control foxes at all times or run the risk of them exploding without warning. When using semblance her hair and tale glow pure white but start dimming over time. As an alternative when Kale is not in combat she can have one fox with half the instant aura drain of while in combat(2.5% drain + a 1%/hour drain) this fox won't explode, instead is just dismissed out of existence, that is not to say it won't attack if provoked (look at companion at the end).

Combat Behavior: Kale has always preferred her sword or axe to the shotgun but she does not shy from using it when it will make life harder for her enemy's, but she will probably be using her sword trying to keep in close to give the enemy as little time to react as possible, she is very adaptable so she always carries around a few of each type of crystal, fire she uses as either a way of distracting or as a direct attack, ice she uses to create a small ice field(think Weiss in season two when she trips up roman in the paladin on the highway), lightning she will throw at enemies to shock them for a few seconds, earth she uses as either a temporary shield by crushing the crystal in her hand and letting the stone cover her hand but this has one drawback, until the stone is broken her hand is useless, or she slams it into the ground creating a five foot tall three foot thick stone tower, and if she runs out of crystals she has a few grenades that she uses, but when it comes to a gunfight she could be easily out matched so she tries to stay close where her speed and agility help her the most or she will use her semblance to throw her enemy's off while she gets in close for the strike, because of her time in the White Fang she knows how to work in groups .

WEAPON

Name: Crimsonfang

Primary Form: A black three foot, blade with an unexplained crimson glow, which can be sheathed in a black scabbard on her left hip.

Secondary Form: The blade folds into a black hand-axe with the blade pointed on the bottom tip, the blade and now the handle glowing a soft crimson red.

Tertiary Form: The blade folds even further until it's a black, lever-action, sawed-off shotgun that holds six shots before needing to reload, with the blade becoming a crimson glowing sight and handle.

Dust Functions: Kale makes her own shells for her shotgun this includes, wind she uses to push her enemies off balance or on their asses, fire just to add a burn to her normal shells, ice can create a thick layer of ice on an opponent possibly immobilizing them, propulsion used for increasing her jump height if she needs to get higher, electric acts like a stun gun for a few seconds, and wind+propulsion she uses this in the same manner as both of the separate elements but with increased effects.

History: During her time as a guardsman for her father he taught her how to design and build her own weapon, once she was done with the weapon it obtained a soft crimson glow that no one could explain. That night her father took her and her friends out hunting for Grimm knowing there was a pack not to far from the village but they were ambushed by the very pack they were tracking. The first Beowolf ,one with large fangs, attacked her father catching him by surprise knocking him to the ground but the Kale was to well trained and she quickly killed the beowolf with a thrust through the thought, as she did the crimson glow brightened then dimmed back down. The rest of the beowolfs attacked the young teens who quickly fended them off with a mix of swords, ranged, and semblances Kale took out three more before the fight was over only one of the kids dies that night she was hit from behind and had the back of her neck ripped out by a Beowolf. that night all of the teens who hadn't named their weapons yet finally thought of names, Kale thought of the Grimm she killed with large fangs and the weapons glow deciding on the name Crimsonfang.

SUBWEAPONS

Flashbang Types: Kale can create two types of flashbangs one is just normal light and sound, but the other is FB#13 a mix of her own design it essentially a super loud and bright flashbang that has propulsion dust added to it to blow people back into walls or each other.
 
Grenade Types: Kale can also create a few types of grenades, NP#2 a napalm grenade that covers a small area in fire for about one minute, FTG#13 a fire tornado grenade it combines wind with fire and propulsion that creates a small tornado that burns anything it picks up, ISG#40 an ice storm grenade that mixes ice and wind to create a small storm that shoots ice around(think RWBY episode 1 when Glynda enters the fight)

Boot Knifes: In each of Kale's boots she has three boot knives, two of them are made for throwing while the other two are for melee combat.

COMPANION

Name: Aria (Kale's decision)

Appearance: Standing three foot tall and four feet long and weighing 65 pounds, Aria closely reassembles a real fox although taller and longer, she is the non exploding half of Kale's semblance and has one main difference from a fox, her fur has a soft crimson glow but it is almost not noticeable to anyone not looking and as long as she stays out of the dark.

Personality: When not being directly controlled by Kale, Aria is quite playful and curious but that can get her into trouble if she breaks something or hurts someone, at other times she is quite lazy and likes to sleep or just lounge around, she often is considered Kale's fun side and in truth is an imitation of her playful self that she tries to hide but most of the time she fails, but Aria is not a weakling and will rip out the throat of any one she feels is going to kill Kale.

Last bit of personality seems to have been cut off? Checking to see if that was intentional since it kinda ends abruptly and doesn't make sense.
