@datadogie Or, if you're a paranoid asshole. "WE should be sure." And just proceed to stab the defenseless body a bunch. Or burn it.

Edit: It honestly seems like it would fit... a Possum more. But eeh.


The worst part is that he has to wake up before he dies, if that's the case. He'll wake up and in that quantum-second of life feel all that pain before he dies. Ghastly.

<Snipped quote by datadogie>

I think a good way to prevent his team from abandoning him if he folds is if he tells us about his semblance and how it works, maybe demonstrate it? And if I read Russell's semblance correctly, we COULD theoretically shoot or hit a non-vital area to see if it'll do anything, since it increases his body's durability as a way to test if he's folding or dead. I mean it would probably hurt like hell when he unfolded, but as you put it, better to be alive and in pain.


Telling his team how it works is good enough, because they'll see him lifeless and pick him up.

The problem with demonstrating the semblance is that he won't make it to class that day. Or perhaps even the day after. The time it takes to regain control over his body is not definitive. He can't exactly practise it, either - both for the length he'll be out whilst trying to practise regaining control over himself and for the distress and pain that he'll feel after awakening. Shoot him to test his survival, and he'll feel even more pain. That's not taking into account the fact he will hate you for a very long time. And cry.

@datadogieYou forgot about the Good Doctor~

"I mean... I think it's funnier if I don't heal you... And maybe it will encourage you to be less needlessly brazen and take threats seriously... Yes... But, you will pout if I don't... decisions, decisions... You can be useful to me no matter my choice, weather it be for my amusement, or utility. But alas... Utility has far more use to me... Now hold your breath while I give you a slight surge, it will be painless, but you might feel a numbing shock after the process due to the fact I am reconnecting all of your... for simplification-- ... ability to feel... think of it as a jolt." Just with a cold, deadpan glare as he helps him up. "Now don't do that in a real fight... Last thing we need is dead weight."

Who wants to vote on who's worst case scenario semblance fail would be worst;

Russel's horrifically painful death upon waking up after taking enough critical damage

Or Cyan's holding her semblance long enough to suffocate herself and leave her a corpse encased in diamond-like glass?

-edit-

Given the pain involved, I am personally leaning towards Russel's being worst

Suffocation isn't nearly as bad as feeling all your nerve endings flare up, while simultaneously feeling any and all blisters, punctures and lacerations, to any type of burns all at once. The shock alone could kill him.

Suffocating sucks too, but she at least has the choice to turn off that semblance from what I understand; he isn't in control about what he is going to feel. Also with suffocation, you start to lose feeling. Not get a jolt of it. The loss of feeling gives the numbing pain... But two different types of it.

So really, only one of their semblances actually has a practical application. And that would be Cyan's.

No one wants to be stuck carrying the Gnome in a Left 4 Dead Run because it isn't just boring, but it becomes an escort. And that also just means you lose the use of not just one fighter, but two of them.

Russel's semblance leaves everyone in an objectively bad situation; but it does erase the fact it can be used for amusing or tense scenarios.

see I was picturing a terrible situation where for some reason Cyan is tossed into a volcano and she shell's up and when she realizes no one is going to get to her in time to save her she has to try to decide if she wants to die by fire or suffocate and one day be discovered as a weird mysterious crystal statue xD

but yeah I agree, Russel has some serious bad end potential.

While I get the hypothetical, how many volcanos are in Remnant? XD

It is such an alarmingly specific situation. XD

Another point to Russell's semblance; if he does it, then it means he has hope. He has hope he'll be found, that he'll be saved, that he'll be helped. Sure, the Grimm might go away, or whoever is attacking him, but he'll hope to have someone there, hope to survive. If he wakes up alone, that'd be fucking terrifying for him, and the hope that someone would be there would be shattered.

Plus, if he does it and is for whatever reason knocked down a hill or cliff or something, and wakes up down there... Well, how the hell does he figure out where to go? He knows roughly where he went, so he could roughly know his way bac- Oh god. What if he wakes up alone, but something stood on his leg and broke it?

Hey, I don't know, I'm just worried about lava okay? I'm sure its out there, we got a dust for it after all! If your power was to turn into a crystal statue you'd think of these things to!

Alternatively, she could pull an FF4 Palom/Porom for the good of the group ( kudos to anyone who knows what I'm talking about ) but results would still be the same. Just more heroic than horrific

Time to hopefully make more friends than enemies in his situation. Or probably never compromise his position to where he never needs to use it.

But uhh... Don't grimm eat bodies too?

Grimm don't eat people. They don't even need to eat, I believe.

Probably, but they will likely be more attracted to ehonvener isnoanicing in the general vicinity.

Also maybe we need to get russel like a flair gun and a life alert if he’s ever lost or has fallen and can’t get up.
—-edit—-

@datadogie

It is stated in a world of remnants that they don’t need to feed but they still like to eat people in that horrifying titan kind of drive to devour and destroy the works of man

This is False.

In Volume 3 a character is killed off that way.

Yeah, they don't need to eat. But they can.

I second the idea of a flare gun for Russel. Oh dear, imagine a scenario in which he needs to fold but hasn't told anyone anything about his semblance. There's some twofold trauma potential there.

additional safety measure: A medical emergency bracelet that says: Hey, I'm Russel. Now I know I look dead by there is a good chance it's just my semblance. give me a few days, maybe put me somewhere safe, if start to smell then its not my semblance, that's just regular death.

I'm just sorta reconsidering my weapon for my character due to the current WIP of the design.

"God, he really looks like he could pull off the Cane Blade and punch someone's face in... Even if the Daggers fit his background a bit more."

Thoughts and Opinions?

Obviously WIP but I wanted to post it so you knew he was in the works. I'll finish him when I get home to my laptop. I also posted him so I could get help with a name. I can't think of any I'm happy with ^_^;

Helios or Sol or something if you like the mythological path.

Zircon's a cool gem that comes in red shades

Or the omnipresent Blaze, which seems to fit well for fire-y characters.

Up to you, of course, just some random suggestions.
