Name: Noir Iridian. Age: 19. Gender: Male. Appearance: Noir stands at 5’10 with a lean muscular build and dark blue eyes. His weapon, Chimera, is often seen laid across his back via a mechanical harness allowing it to be reoriented so as to be drawn over his shoulder or from the small of his back on either side. At his belt are held several additional magazines containing both dust and ammunition for his weapon.
Personality: Calm, cool, and collected. (Will be expanded on ICly)
Noir’s weapon is a swordspear at heart, but expands the capabilities of such significantly via numerous technological additions and alterations. Core among these is its hollow shaft, which travels all the way through the weapon and essentially functions as the chamber of the precision firearm integrated into the tool. In the guard and part of the surrounding enclosure at the base of the blade, Chimera holds compartments for both regular ammunition and dust as well as a hidden set of mechanisms that allow for shot to be fired in either direction down the barrel. From the blade-side tip of the barrel a partially rounded blade extends, closing off that end unless shot is to be released, thus retaining the swordspear’s ability to pierce with great effectiveness. Similarly, if dust is fired, rather than shot, the protrusion can remain closed, instead releasing the material through microscopic pores, proliferating upon the blade elemental effects rather than releasing a projectile. The last set of its mechanical properties lie within the shaft of the weapon, which can telescope--building up pressure in the mechanism--and then expand back to its original size with great speed and force, facilitating powerful thrusts with little setup or strength required from Noir. This telescoping mechanism plays into the last two functions in this set, which allow for the shaft to segment revealing a black carbon nanofiber tube within, essentially turning the weapon into a mid range chainsword. Of course, rather than segment, the nature of the individual sections allows them to shift several inches perpendicular to the arrangement of the shaft, creating hand or footholds for Noir to use as he sees fit. All-in-all, Chimera is an incredibly versatile combination of tools in one fairly compact package.
Compact Length: 4.5 feet(2ft shaft). Swordspear Length: Approx’ 8.5 feet(6ft shaft). Full Extension Length: 16.5 feet(14ft shaft).Item:Dust Cannisters. He carries Fire, Lightning, and Gravity variants.Companion:Mezzanote. His pet bird, which is typically around the size of a raven, though with rather strange markings. Depicted in his appearance picture, though there it is under the influence of Noir's semblance. The bird is trained to respond to commands--both verbal and gesture based.
Semblance:Transmogrify. A form of warped enhancement or transformation, Noir’s semblance allows him to initiate a transformation--via contact--on any material, or willing participant. This enhancement gives the target drastically improved attributes at the cost of stability and/or reliability. This often includes making things larger, more durable, sharper--serrated even--and generally more potent whereas dexterity in its various forms are often lost as things like accuracy or precision movement are lost. Similarly, his semblance can make simpler things more complex...sometimes to their own detriment. The effect of this semblance is cumulative, making affected objects or individuals more and more potent at greater and greater cost over time.
History: Wouldn’t you like to know.
Quote:“For the sake of entertainment, I'll let you go first.”
Name: Autumn Lily. Age: 20 Gender: Female Appearance: Despite growing up in the countryside for her years past 12, Autumn still knows how to ‘perform’ socially. She is around 5’2” with hair that ends just past her shoulders. Autumn always seems to have the right clothes for the occasion, whether it be a tasteful dark blue dress for a dance, or shorts and a tank top for manual labour. Her ‘assets’ so to speak leave much to be desired, and she is undoubtedly self conscious about that. Personality: Although a bit over eager to get to know people, Autumn is a kind woman. Her past teachers always noted how confident Autumn seemed, however once the pressure is on, and she thinks she's out of her league she turns into an indecisive mess. Ms. Lily can breeze through small talk up until the moment romantic interests are expressed, at which point she's prone to shutting herself up and leaving the room. Autumn is used to being the leader, and despite her shortcomings, that kind of pressure, the social kind that comes with leading a group, doesn't seem to affect her as much. Weapon:Once Bitten & Twice Shy
.50 cal Muzzleloader(w/ bayonet) - Can only fire custom minitions, she has to put an explosive into the barrel, before putting a bullet in. Instead of gunpowder, Autumn can have dust mixed with gunpowder poured into it for additional effects on bullet impacts, based on the type of dust. Does not have a scope, but instead a reflex sight that rotates to the right for shotgun form.
Transformation - The end of the barrel can fold back over the top of the gun. A small piece of metal can then unfold from the end of the right side of the barrel, allowing shells to be popped into both chambers. When in this position, the lever of the gun can be slid upward to trigger the primer of the shell for both barrels. There is no reserve space for the shotgun, leading to a slow firing rate for it, though not quite as slow as the muzzle loader.
(Something like this, but with the sight at a 45 degree angle.) 10 gauge double-barreled shotgun (Also w/ bayonet) - Can fire normal shotgun shells, as well as custom shotgun shells infused with dust. As with the muzzle loader form, loading the gun with dust munitions allows for elemental effects on hit.
She carries a large amount of supplies on her, such as premixed dust and gunpowder, as well as regular gunpowder in a small horn. Her ammunition alone weigh around 15 pounds. Semblance:Reminiscence Autumn can create translucent golden copies of herself (referred to herein as Images). While within roughly forty-feet of an "Image" she can switch places with it instantly. Images are immaterial, and unable to move. Autumn can have up to two Images at a time. If she is physically touching someone, she can create an image for both of them, though she can only recall both of them to that location if she is touching them at activation. Otherwise she teleports back by herself, Using her semblance in this way fills the maximum number of images instantly.
Autumn retains momentum when recalling to an image. She does not have to match the pose of the image when recalling. History: Ms. Lily was treated to a wonderful life. For a while. A loving family, that broke down after her father's stroke, and drew lines in the sand after his death. Her brothers and sisters all felt they personally deserved his entire inheritance. Without a will to speak of, and living too far from normal society for the government to get involved, all out war was waged.
Autumn is still the cheerful girl her childhood built, but it's been soured a bit. A new light has been casting ugly shadows over that childhood, making the genuine moments seem like facades. Autumn feels like if she doesn't distance herself, then there won't be much of her to speak of anymore. So she went about the process of creating a new life. In the process she created a gun, and set about training herself to be a formidable combatant. Years of training allowed her to finally be accepted into Beacon right after her eighteenth birthday.
Autumn has been training at the academy for two years now. She didn’t get to participate in the Vytal festival tournament the first year, as it only happens every two years, but this year she made it to the final round.. The first round she didn’t do much, except lead her team, and didn’t fight in any round until the final one. The current one. Quote: "Like, for a yearbook or somethin'?"
