Name: Seth Rush
Height: 5’11 (6 foot with shoes on)
Seth stands Five foot eleven without shoes and with shoes, he’s six feet tall. He weighs 240 pounds and is between and slime and medium physique. He has candy apple red eyes, short black hair, and it might not be seen, but he is slightly deaf in his left ear. His right arm has a tattoo of a King cobra staring from his shoulder and wrapping around his arm with the mouth open about to devour his hand. On his left shoulder, he has a tattoo of a wolf head. He is normally seen wearing a blue t-shirt with a design of a cross exploding from a skull as chips of bone fly from the open wound. Black jeans, black and white Nike sneakers, and around his neck is a necklace with his emblem on it.
Seth is a fun loving human being with a warped sense of humor. He loves pulling pranks and loves trying to make people laugh. However, should the need arise: he can turn on a dime and get serious. With how he was brought up, Seth wouldn’t bat an eyelash to put himself in danger to save someone.
Seth and his family own a small auto body shop called Gear Shift. There he and his father worked on restoring old cars while also repairing client cars as well. Most often than not, a client would roll in a frame for an old car and ask them to fix it up like new. These were Seth’s favorite jobs. He loved going to the junk yards and find the parts needed to fix the car while also spending time with his father. He loved working on cars and loved to see how each gear and each piston moved the car.
When his Quirk appeared, he was ecstatic a first. However, he didn’t understand how it worked. It seemed that this silver liquid was useless as it just seeped out of his skin and just splatted on the floor. It could slither and spin, but nothing too exciting. Not like his Father's Quirk which allowed him to change his body to metal. His father was once a superhero but gave it up when Seth was born. He decided family came first and didn’t want to leave them should something happen to him on the battlefield.
One day during their weekly outing to the scrapyard. Seth found a car door he knew they could use for their latest project. He pulled the door out from the large pile, but before he could call for his father. The pile suddenly collapsed. Seth didn’t have time to run and simply raised his arms to protect his head. His father turned the corner to see the pile slam into his son. His body quickly turned to the metal as he rushed to dig Seth out.
When he reached where Seth was, He was astonished to see he was wearing metal armor. Seth too was astonished and couldn’t fathom where the armor came from. The armor quickly changed to silver liquid and seeped back into his skin. Seth looked at his father in complete shock before he passed out.
Seth woke up in the hospital with an IV in his right arm. Seth hated needles and hated IVs even more, but as long as he didn’t see the IV go into his arm. He was fine. The IV was covered and he guessed his father told them his issue with it. Seth groaned and began to sit up. His father and mother were right there with him. Relieved he was ok. Once Seth was stable and awake, his father explained what had happened while he was out.
According to his father, a Quirk specialist had come in and asked to run some tests to see what kind of Quirk Seth had. According to the tests: Seth’s Quirk allows him to create Liquid Metal from his body and create armor around his body and harden like a suit of armor. However, this Quirk has some major Flaws. The test found that the Liquid Metal uses some of Seth’s blood to create it. The more he uses it the more exhausted he becomes and the weaker the metal gets. Using his Quirk for long periods of time could result in him dying from blood loss. The specialist warned Seth’s father to make sure he doesn’t overexert his Quirk.
Once Seth was medically clear he was sent home. His mother and father refused to let him work in the shop until he was fully healed. For a week, Seth couldn’t work on cars or help in the shop. In his mind, it was going to be the worst week of his life. However, while having down time allowed him to see just how his Quirk worked. He began letting the Liquid Metal seep out his body, harden and create armor. He then tried to create a weapon. He imagined a sword he had seen in a show once and tried to create it, but nothing happened. The Liquid Metal simply swirled and weaved in his hand. He sighed in defeat, but then came up with an idea. He had a wrench in his room and he let the Liquid Metal coat it to see if it could metal it like acid, but once again nothing happened. He let the Liquid Metal slither back into his hand and sighed again. He looked at the wrench one more time before turning back and jumping in surprise. The Liquid Metal in his hand had taken the shape of the wrench and hardened. He then let the liquid metal liquefy again and coat a hammer. He pictured the hammer and the Liquid Metal morphed into the Hammer and hardened. With his new found knowledge he began coating the other tools in his room with the Liquid Metal. Even though he couldn’t work on cars, he persuaded his parents to let him coat the tools in the shop with his Liquid Metal.
After his week was up, he went back to working at the shop. With his new found ability. He used the Liquid Metal to create the tools so he wouldn’t have to leave his workstation to get a tool he needed. His father called it lazy, but he called it efficient. Seth knew he could coat an object and create it with his Liquid Metal. So with the money, his father paid him, he began purchasing weapons online. When the first weapon appeared on their doorstep. His parents were a little taken aback by it, but Seth showed him what he could do. He let the Liquid Metal coat the sword and get its measurements f before it slithered back into Seth’s body. He then let more Liquid Metal seep from his body and he pictured the sword. The Liquid Metal morphed into the sword and hardened. His parent's jaws dropped when they saw what had happened, but Seth didn't take into account how heavy the sword was as it dropped to the floor and cracked the wood flooring. His father started laughing while his mother glared at him and at what he had just done.
One night when the shop closed for the day and they sat down at the table to have dinner. Seth’s father slid him a brochure for Kokoro Academy. Seth knew his father went to the academy before transferring and loved hearing about all the stories he told him as a child. He couldn’t wait to enroll.
Favorite Hero: Metallic: The Indestructible Hero
Seth’s Liquid Metal Quirk allows him to produce a liquefied Metal. However, that’s not the only thing that his Quirk can do. It can coat his body and harden into armor to protect his body. It can also take the shape of weapons and harden as well, but to do so. Seth’s Liquid Metal must coat around the weapon in question to get its many features like weight, length, width, and any mechanical workings that might be inside.
His Liquid Metal might look tough at first, but it can be broken with enough force and pressure. Also, since Seth uses some of his blood to create it. The more he uses it the more exhausted he becomes and the weaker the metal gets. Using his Quirk for long periods of time could result in him dying from blood loss.

"To be honest: just like my dad."Best describe yourself in five sentences.
well: I'm very hard working and refuse to give up. for example we had this Camaro we needed to work on and it was coming down to the wire because the parts we ordered came in really, really late. so we worked so many overnighters that my dad fell asleep a few times. I on the other hand (Filled with energy drinks and an unholy amount of coffee) continued on and finally got it done on time. I'll give my shirt for someone if they need it so I guess loyal is the word...or is it generous. Never could differentiate between the two. I'm deathly afraid of spiders. I know, this wanst what the question was made for, but hear me out: anyone who knows me would have placed it here as well. I have a severe case of arachnophobia. It's gotten so bad I need to take medicine for it. and I think lastly I would say: I'm a movie buff. I love watching movies and learning all there is about them. guess you could say I'm a movie nerd. What are your interests and hobbies?
"let's see: cars (that stems from my parents, music....not playing it mind you. just listening to it. Movies, but I'm sure people my age are into that. and crafting. you might see a steel pole, but I see a piece of art ready to be molded." Are there any notable accomplishments you want to us to be aware of?
"Not really...unless you need me to look at your car. Then I can help. I might be young, but dad taught me everything I need to look out for to help people with their vehicles." Tell us something about your quirk that most might not know? Any events or memories, be it joyous or ill, tied to it?
"Well, there was this one time I might have overused it and got Anemia. let me tell you, that was the first time I found out my Quark was linked to my blood. not fun having to be set up in a hospital with an IV in each arm."Why should we consider you over the other applicants? What can you offer that they cannot?
"To be honest...this is a tough one. there are probably better candidates than me. Hell, there's probably someone who can turn his whole body, insides and all into metal. however, what I can promise that I'm a hard worker and won't let anyone one of my professors down. I'll make my time here worth all the time and expenses the academy will spend and become a great hero."
