"Of course , sir, it would be my pleasure to learn from you."Name:
Tall and lanky, Samael is not built like the divine warrior that Haniel wants him to be. 6'3 and perennially skinny, Samael fits the 'nerd' aesthetic to a tee. He mostly dresses in the standard school uniform, though when in casual settings can be seen in a simple set of collared shirt and pants. Somewhat dependent on his glasses, they are a staple part of his look, holding his slightly unruly hair out of his face.Personality:
Samael is a generally likable, if not hugely social individual. Ever focused on improving his standing in life, Samael is cordial if not friendly to the vast majority of people he meets, ever seeking to make a good impression on people and to make good connections where he can. Chaotic individuals and situations can become stressful for Samael, and as such he tends to avoid protracted contact with groups of strangers in environments over which he has no control; as an introvert, solitude and order are things he relishes and seeks on a daily basis in order to recharge his social batteries.
Haniel on the other hand is an outgoing and passionate soul. Ever seeking to push Samael to new greatness, adventure, and social prominence, her advice can be motherly and overbearing at times. This aside though, Haniel and Samael get along extremely well, and she is a frequent sounding board for the majority of decisions Samael makes, bringing two minds and opinions to bear on each decision. Focused on honorable conduct and charitable action, Haniel can be counted on to be a provider of steadfast and wholesome advice in any given situation.History:
Born with his quirk plain and visible to the sight of his parents, Samael has always been followed by the image, message, and agenda of the angelic. Named after an angel, and raised to be a great hero by his wealthy parents, Samael quickly developed into a clever young boy; eager to please his parents. In order to keep up with the ever-rising expectations of his personal guardian angel, as well as his doting parents, Samael developed a very strong affinity for notetaking, scheduling, and generally organizing himself to ensure he had complete control over his learning and development. At the early age of 8 he was already the star of his junior school, and when his quirk started coming into its own as a powerful combat ability, it was no surprise that he was drawn toward UA.
Through his senior school years, Samael would grow in purpose and direction, finally deciding for himself the goals that he had in life: to be successful and competent enough to provide for his parents who gave him so much, to be fair and just to the defenseless citizens of the world, and to live up to the power given to him by his closest and most beloved friend, Haniel. To that end, the path of a professional hero called to him strongly, and that path had but one guaranteed route; the path through the halls of UA.Likes:
Order and serenity
Learning new things
Cold weather (Haniel prefers warmer climates)
Chaotic/uncontrolled situations and people
Needing to hurt people
Haniel pestering him to get a girlfriend
Being underwater (surprisingly, the pressure differential doesn't agree with him)Personal Strengths:
Quick thinking and knowledgeable about common quirks and typings, this makes him quickly able to assess situations and react correctly; learns quickly and efficiently.
Fast reflexes for a human, supported by years of Haniel's persistent training
Orderly attitude and pleasant demeanor means Samael makes friends easily, and most people tend toward liking him rather than disliking him
Very good at studying and applied technology, important subjects in the modern era. Samael is a model traditional student.Personal Weaknesses:
Chaotic and/or overwhelming situations can cause Samael stress over time, which narrows his field of though and makes him less likely to see positives or find ingenious solutions to things
Can sometimes take his angelically-imposed selflessness and humility too far, meaning that he does not properly care for himself mentally or physically when going out of his way to help others
Not naturally a very strong individual, nor a particularly fast one without the benefits of his Quirk. Haniel is always on his back about increasing his cardio fitness...
Will occasionally overlook the desires of others (whether intentionally or not) when he sees room for his own personal advancement as a hero or as an individual. In order to become the strong hero he has always been told he must be, he occasionally puts aside his selflessness and can take very precocious or selfish actions.
Guardian AngelQuirk Type:
A sentient angelic being named Haniel exists as a permanent companion to Samael, existing for the most part as a visible halo of light above Samael's head. Haniel can speak directly into Samael's mind to warn him of approaching dangers and the like while in this form. In fights, Samael can take on various semblances of the angel, granting him physical changes and a variety of angelic powers, while at the same time giving up part of his physical agency to Haniel.Quirk Strengths:
Samael's ability to pick and choose how much of the angelic form to take on allows him to tailor his powers specifically to each engagement to avoid tiring himself out by taking on powers he don't need. The primary powers he can call forth are: Angel's Wings (a pair of feathered wings able to carry up to 2.5x Samael's total weight in flight without serious strain), Angelic Senses (Can detect lies (statements that the speaker knows to be false), increased reflexes, improved sight, smell, and taste), Angelic Physique (increases physical stamina, pain endurance, and physical strength by a great deal), Angelic Arsenal (Can call forth a flaming sword from nothing, or imbue a physical sword with fire. This fire can only be touched without harm by Samael). For now, Samael is only able to call one of these powers at a time without giving full control over to Haniel.
Even when completely exhausted, Haniel will never need to sleep, and always retains some level of her divine senses, making it extremely difficult to sneak up on or surprise Samael, given the constantly watching guardian looking out for himSamael can call forth limited miracles, such as healing others, casting out individuals who are possessing others, or even in the direst need raising people from the dead (Miracles are currently impossible for Samael)Quirk Weaknesses:
Total Possession can last for only up to three minutes before Haniel is completely exhausted, and must return to her halo form to rest until the next sunrise (God's First Light being what gives her power). If Haniel is not able to absorb the rays of the dawn, she will remain exhausted until she is next able to see the sun (time is no longer relevant at that point). Depending on how much of Haniel's power Samael is drawing on, the partial possession can last up to 2 hours for only one power, with each additional power drastically reducing the amount of time before Haniel exhausts herself.
The more of Haniel's power Samael takes on, the less control he has over himself, on a slowly escalating scale which ends when he fully takes on a Total Possession, where their roles reverse, and Samael is simply an adviser rather than fully in control. This may lead to Haniel doing things that Samael would not wish to do, but she always work toward what she believes to be his interests, and the Total Possession can be stopped at any time, at the cost of exhausting both parties significantly. Haniel can choose to take full control voluntarily, but if she does so it can only be as a Total Possession, and she can only keep it maintained for 30s before she becomes exhausted.The Haniel's miracles can never directly affect Samael. He can never directly heal himself, only others around him. Additionally, miracles will cause Haniel to become exhausted for a proportional amount of time, with major miracles potentially taking days to weeks for her to become strong enough to manifest herself again. (Miracles are currently impossible for Samael)Quirk Techniques:
Total Angelic Possession: The full power of Haniel is unleashed as she takes on her full form as a searingly bright figure of light with flaming weapons and a terrible visage. Any and all powers are available for her use for the full duration of this ability, though no matter how hard or simple the fight is, this form can only last for three minutes, after which Haniel is completely spent and retreats to her halo, with Samael no longer able to call on any of her power.
Angelic Visage: Light spears out from every surface of Samael's body, making him appear larger than life. Foes who look at Samael's face during this time are struck with a deep terror which sears them to their very soul. Friends and bystanders who look upon his face feel calmed and rejuvenated simply by looking at him, though there is no physical benefit or harm that comes to any individual who looks (other than retinal damage for anyone stupid enough to stare at Samael for too long)Heaven's Fury: Drawing his hands together, Samael can draw on the fury of the heavens, manifesting itself as either a cone of white-hot flames or a piercing beam of white light capable of piercing through most objects (Currently impossible for Samael)
