Fen SaffronFen: Shortened version of Fenrir, the mythological wolf in Norse Myth.
Saffron: A shade of yellow/orange.Nickname/Alias:
Wolf FaunusAppearance Description:
Fen stands at 6 feet, but it can be hard to tell when he's in his usual hunched stance. His body is also surprisingly toned considering how lean he appears. His black shaggy hair is long enough to cover his wolf ears on the top of his head, and accentuates his yellow eyes. He usually keeps a disgruntled look on his face, but when he encounters something that amuses or excites him, he flashes a grin, showing his sharp teeth. For clothing, he prefers light clothing suitable for the desert. But he always wears his light yellow scarf, an old gift from his father.Allusion:
Big Bad Wolf
At first, Fen seems lethargic. He seems disinterested in everything, and when he talks, he only speaks a couple words at best. Still, this makes him surprisingly approachable as he treats everyone with a casual manner. However, this outward demeanor is partially a facade to catch people off-guard. In truth, he loves riling people up, whether it's getting close up to people, or making the occasional acerbic remark amidst his listless comments.
Fen's true personality is certainly more active. He prefers observing others, enjoys getting people out of their comfort zone, and engaging in banter. Despite this irritating behavior, Fen doesn't do this out of malice. He actually likes interacting with people, but feels like he can't help himself with teasing them. But at the same time, he wouldn't want to push someone too far with his actions, and dislikes people who do. He's loyal to anyone he considers a friend, and makes blunt remarks as he would hate to lie to them.
While he isn't a bookworm, Fen enjoys learning about new things. He'll observe how people do things, and will listen intently to their words. Part of it stems from his perceived lack of purpose; Compared to others, he doesn't have any particular reason to be a huntsman, nor does he put any heavy effort in doing so. And it's because of that, that he wants to seek something more than fighting and aggravating people for fun.Likes:

BiographyCountry of Origin:
As far as he could remember, Fen was always traveling with a person he called his father, an old huntsman known as Aramis Saffron. He didn't know his exact origins, whether Aramis was his actual father, or perhaps he was found after some Grimm attack as a sole survivor. His father never talked about it, nor did Fen ever care about where he came from. Whatever the case was. Fen simply followed his father wherever he went, generally in areas where Grimm attacked. His upbringing was a spartan one; His father taught Fen what he needed to survive, but he often had to endure on his own due to the perils of the Vacuo desert and his father's occupation. But despite this bizarre and dangerous life, Fen enjoyed it. Eventually however, his father enrolled him into the nearest combat school, only stating to Fen that he taught all he could to him.
Fen never questioned Aramis, but he wondered what exactly he was suppose to learn in school. Anything involving fighting felt easy to him, compared to what he faced before. His feelings slowly changed however, as he began to communicate with the people around him. He was used to letting his father doing all the talking whenever they went to a settlement. But now, he had to do it himself. He found that people actually wanted
to interact with him, whether it's to teach them something he did naturally, or just to get to know the aloof faunus.
While he never fully connected with anyone in his school days, Fen felt a twinge of regret not doing so. But he also gained a sense of curiosity of the world. And it was seeing this newfound interest in new things that Aramis decided to transfer Fen to Beacon Academy, a place where Fen could broaden his horizons.
Fen uses a pair of boxy-looking tonfas called Gjöll
. They can fire rifle rounds through the long shaft, and the grips have separate triggers in them on each side, letting him either fire them normally, or use the recoil to strengthen his melee strikes. Additionally, he can combine the bottom sides of Gjöll into one, forming blades at the end and letting him use it as a axe. As the tip is uncovered, he can still fire rounds, and he can even load a more powerful dust bullet in axe mode. The axe can also unload a bipod in this form, in case Fen needs support for both aiming and the massive recoil from firing.Semblance:
Fen's Semblance Devour
, lets him absorb kinetic energy to empower him. As he gains more energy, his physical capabilities become stronger. He can even unleash all the energy at once for a single attack, although he has to use all of it.
Fen has two different ways he can absorb energy. He can passively gain the energy made from his own movements, slowly getting stronger as a fight goes on. But the fastest way to gain energy is taking attacks head-on, using his aura to absorb most of the damage. There are several weakness to this however. Fen can't absorb attacks that would overwhelm him otherwise, nor can he defend against attacks he's completely unaware of. The energy also slowly dissipates when not in use.
