Jamison Nicolle Taylor AKA "James"Age:
Pictured is a well built young man standing at around 5'10, wearing an oil-stained tanktop and coveralls tied around his waist. His normal rat's nest of brown hair has been wrangled into a short ponytail and his mismatched eyes are hidden behind tinted goggles. The scar above his left eye is visible, however, a bright pink divot where flesh was burnt and scraped from his skull and turning the once brown pupil pale blue. Whatever attractive features that may lay hidden on the plain-faced young man are marred by the manic grin splitting his face, revealing bright teeth and a missing left canine. Clasped distressingly loosely in his right hand is a pistol-shaped object with a glowing red muzzle, dark smoke curling up into the air. Behind him, slightly out of focus, is a concrete wall with a large scorch mark marring its surface, in the center of the scorch mark is a glowing crater. Occupation:
3rd Year Student, Inventor, and member of the Monster Hunting ClubClass:
Scoundrel: Taking cues from the Rogue and Ranger classes, the Scoundrel wishes to keep distance between themselves and the enemy, peppering them with powerful ranged attacks. However, should they find themselves face to face with the enemy, they are adepts at staying out of harms reach with an array of skills that get them out of trouble while priming for a viscious counterattack.Class Skills:
— Sucker Punch [Active]: Used best either before a fight or while sneaking about, a Sucker Punch deals low damage but adds the "Stunned" status effect to the target for up to three seconds.
— Flashbang [Active]: Summoning an innocuous ball of light into his hand, James throws it at the feet of his enemies and adding the "Stunned", "Deafened", and "Blind" status effects for approximately five seconds.
— Dirty Blow [Active]: In a split second James lashes out, striking a fist or embedding a knife deep into an opponents weakest spot, either adding the "Stunned" status effect for three seconds or inflicting heavy "Bleed" damage.
— Alpha Strike [Active]: Loosening the safety parameters on the Zapp Gun, cranking up the previously non-lethal bolts into a highly dangerous beam of red energy. Can penetrate special defenses and deals heavy "Fire" damage but leaves the Zapp Gun on a long cooldown, forcing him to rely on his knife for 1 minute and cannot use Alpha Strike again without causing a meltdown until he can do proper maintenance.
— Aimed Shots [Passive]: James is able to deal 2x damage to targets with the "Stunned" or "Blind" status effect active.
— Conditioning [Passive]: With Miss Hannah's training, James has been taught not to fight with any particular style, but to survive. If there has been a book on dirty tricks then Miss Hannah had him study it cover to cover. As a consequence, James' physique has been catered towards agility, dexterity, and stamina, with just enough strength to give his punches some real weight.
— Quickdraw [Passive]: When it comes to bringing a firearm to bare there are few who can outdraw James to the punch, giving him precious moments act while others are busy.
— Journeymen of Unlocking[Passive]:
Using gadgets and wits, James can open all basic locks, hack basic encryptions, and hotwire basic vehicles.Tablet Power:Light of Inspiration-
The Light of Inspiration is an incredibly rare Tablet Power that allows one to craft "Wonders", miracles of science that are lightyears ahead of the current level of technology. It is a regrettable fact however that this ability to create almost mystical technology effortlessly has a tendency to drive many "Bearers of the Light" to lose their grip on their humanity, becoming absorbed by their theories and reckless with their technologies. To counteract this tendency for madness, the Releran Government has its own sub-branch dedicated to the monitoring and handling of any Bearer of the Light they can register, ensuring they stay grounded and taken care of.Other:
-James is banned from competing in Battle Bots tournaments on a regional, national, and international level.
-Can play the saxophone.
-Is a known "Troublemaker" and has a reputation for stepping in on other peoples behalves, especially when he sees someone bullied.
