« on: September 11, 2016, 09:11:37 PM »
CHARACTER

Name: Nike Fortunato

Age: 35, 9 Frost, 41 AC

Species and Gender: Swan Faunus Female

Symbol:

Occupation: Huntress, Doctor, Lawyer

Appearance: Nike is 173 cm tall, weighing 62 kilos, mostly contributing to muscle weight. She has fair skin, smooth and soft. But its rough in some areas like her back from training and her childhood. Nike has long brown hair that she keeps neat and well tamed. Nike has blue eyes and a young face. She wears blue floral t-shirt and beige pencil skirt with black shoes. As she is a swan Faunus, her wings are naturally bigger than most bird Faunus, a wing span of 2 meters, but still not capable of flight. She wears this attire at casual.

Her combat attire is completely different. She wears a tiara that has a visor hidden inside which she uses to analyze the battlefield to plan out with her team. She wears golden armor(not made of real gold, its carbon fibre) that covers her vital areas like shoulders, back, chest, stomach. She wears leggings and a white skirt. She wears special shoes that the heels dig into the ground, increasing her hold on ground. She only wears those in areas that the ground is solid enough. Areas with soft ground with wears spiked boots.

Her work attire at the clinic is a lab coat over her casual attire. Her hair is tied in a bun and is held in place with pins and she wears reading glasses. Her work attire when she is doing her job as a lawyer is a black suit and pencil skirt, completed with a scarf.

History: Nike was born in Atlas, and due to the Faunus discrimination there, she lost her parents to unjust judges on a crime they did not commit. She, just 5 years old, saw with her own eyes as the murderers framed her parents and bribed the judge, who on his side did not count for the evidence the lawyer defending her parents gave. "Who would believe the words of a child?" sparked her anger. Her parents were executed.
  She lived on the streets, having lost her parents and her home. She lived off trash and garbage for days, malnutrition was eating her slowly and people just kicked her aside. She rejected help from the "goodwilled" people, she knew better than to trust the people, she could see in their eyes greed and lust. She had so much negativity pent up in her. She came to the city walls after endless wandering. Then they crumbled.
  Grimm crashed into the city, and chased after Nike. Nike did not have the energy to run, the military nearly trampled her with their machines as they tried to fight the Grimm, huge numbers. Out of the blue, she was snatched away and brought far from the sight in a flash. She fainted during the moment.
  She woke up the next day to find herself attached to tubes and several medical equipment, her skin clean and hair neatly combed. A lady was sitting next to her, fair and beautiful. She looked at her and the lady smiled back. The lady then helped remove the tubes attached and spoke in a gentle voice. Nike rejected her at first, but the warmth the lady exhibited made her give in. She could see kindness in the pale white eyes.
  Each and every day, Nike spent her days in the hospital, she soon came to be known as the Trolley Girl, because she would help the nurses push their trolleys. The lady, who's name was Gracy, was a Huntress who happens to be blind. She often visited Nike and sat with her for hours talking about her day and life. Nike was always happiest whenever Gracy visits.
  She was soon discharged but she remembered what Gracy told her in the beginning. Gracy came by in her car and Nike got on, her new family was with Gracy, in Vale.
  Gracy was a strict woman, but with a kind heart. She made sure Nike was combat capable and academically capable, all while giving her a happy life and childhood. She got her first try at using a weapon which was a toy gun that worked like a real one. She learnt critical thinking and much much more from Gracy.
  Years passed, Gracy had retired and started a clinic. Now 12, Nike was a student in Signal. Thanks to her early tuterlage, she was top student. She was admired by her juniors and even taught them a few things. Nike has exceeded teachers expectations and even Gracy. But unknownst to them, Nike still harbors her anger towards Atlas.
  She entered Beacon at 17 through the exam, passed with the best grades. She was proud, and proud she may one day take down Atlas. But something changed her.
  It was her first year, she and her team were to investigate the Emerald Forest due to recent Grimm activity, but were not to engage any Grimm unless necessary. Nike's presence however turned all Grimm hostile towards her. Her team valiantly fought them with her. They left the Emerald Forest quickly, and reported their findings.
  At night, when everyone was in their dorms, she confessed to her team about the feelings inside her. At first her team did not take it well, they blamed her for many things, including the influx of Grimm. But then they calmed down and gave Nike a group hug, they forgiven her so easily. They became stronger together, no foe was too strong for their team, Nike along discovered her Semblance after that moment, her teacher theorized because she had finally let go of what has burdened her, and hence releasing the lock holding her back.
  Final year in Beacon, she wished the day never came, her teams are going to part ways and gave each other their last goodbyes. Nike also said goodbye to Gracy, her age had caught up to her wounds and died in her bed smiling. The clinic still stands, now name "Gracious Clinic", which serves elderly, children under 5, disabled and the poor for free and it's run by Gracy's younger sister, Gaby. Upstairs of that building is Just Law Firm, owned by Gracy's still alive husband, Michelangelo. She helps her aunt and father whenever she can.

Personality: Nike has an air of justice and respect,  because that what Nike is. She upholds Justice and Respect as her moral compass. She however always gives in the her kind heart and sometimes thinks Justice does not uphold Kindness. She is benelovent. She has her downsides though. She is sensitive towards subjects like loss and family, and tends to be quite the crybaby. She has her quirky sides, she likes Tuna sandwiches and prefers to do ballet as her main art form. Also when she laughes it is those evil maniacal laughs that often ends with her choking and coughing, adding comedic relief. She is basically what a best friend would be, she is a pillar to support you in your endeavors. She does not like drinking however and often criticizes her teammates but still lets them drink. She believes firmly there is always a way, no matter how crazy or desperate it may seem. She is always willing to sacrifice herself for others. She is also quite the clean freak and always likes to be organized, she spends more time cleaning up her team dorm than actually training. But she is protective, her Faunus nature even pushes her to be that kind of person.

However, her neutrality is both her strength and weakness. Those who met her know that she always wants a peaceful conclusion, and that she is always willing to prove it. Some will be reasonable and do reach peace with her, however some see this as a chance to strike and sometimes, Nike will take the first hit. She does not even blame them, rather just stands and valiantly tries to reach peace. She had several fatal injuries from those moments, but she still stands.

Aura and Semblance: Nike's Aura is White and her Semblance is called Colors. Colors makes her glow brightly and a projection on a banner can be seen behind her and is even affected by wind. But with no wind the banner fans the sky. Allies within her vision will suddenly feel undefeatable and have their morale boosted. That is her Semblance at work. Colors boosts allies morale and gives them a confidence boost, but its real power is what it does. Colors gives her allies a defensive buff that mitigates 5% of the damage they take, for if an ally is shot while Colors is active, they won't feel as much pain but it would still hurt. However this used as a last resort as Colors can only be kept up for a minute. Colors' effects are affected by Dust powers though. Colors' has a devastating effect, if Nike were to be taken down before the duration is up or before she cancels it, her boosted allies will start to feel the opposite effect for the same duration as Colors when it was up.
Colors uses 60% of her aura for that one minute, but once that one minute is up she needs time recover her aura. Most battles end before she can use colors a second time.

Fire Dust: Colors turns red and orange, the banner now looks like a flame tongue. Allies feel like adrenaline is rushing through them.

Ice Dust: Colors turns blue and violet, the banner looks like an aurora. Allies feel calm and collected.

Wind Dust: Colors turn green. The banner becomes wispy and elegant. Allies feel free and unbounded by burden.

Combat Behavior: Nike can switch between the supportive backlines and offensive front line. In the back lines, her Semblance is most effective where she can see everyone and her style of fighting fits the frontline. Trust her to hold her own in a 1v1 battle and a free for all Grimm fight. She does not fair well with range characters, she can't reach them to fight them and closing the distance means forsaking her role, which will be worse. Nike is your trusted leader and strives to raise the morale of her allies. Her Faunus nature aside, she can be very protective of things(cargo, teammates etc).

In the front lines, she is quite the beast you can say. Her weapons make her hard to get close to and she moves surprisingly fast so she definitely can close the distance on you if you are close enough. You can say she is the Spartan on the battlefield.

But however, she is a peaceful force, unless the force against her is Grimm or not listening to reason, she will avoid conflict and instead aim for a peaceful end to the matter, she would even put down her weapons to show she is willing to make peace. She is a neutral force in the end, it is her core in a sense.

WEAPON

Name: Eva and Prometheus

Primary Form: Eva is a round shield with fair coverage of Nike's body, enough for her to fight in the shade. A woman's face with a brave look is on the shield face. Prometheus is a 1.5 meter long spear with a wide head that makes the total length to be 2 meters and a strong pole. Her symbol can be seen carved into the blade.

Secondary Form: Eva opens up to become a tower shield by splitting into four parts that become the edge of the shield while metal plates inside shift to become the rest of the shield and Prometheus's spear head split and flip to the side to become a sort of pickaxe head. Excellent in dragging things to bash with Eva.

Tertiary Form: Eva becomes smaller but more bulky, but leaves space for something slim to slide into it. Prometheus's pole folds and becomes short enough to hold with one hand, taking the form of a sword, she then can sheathe Prometheus into Eva, though the spear head does stick out.

Dust Functions: In order for her Semblance to be affected by dust, they first need to be loaded in her weapon. Eva surprising is where she loads the dust. Other than powering up the Semblance, it has no other uses.

History: Eva and Prometheus were Gracy's weapons of choice but passed them down to Nike after retiring. Nike had already been proficient in the spear and shield so it was a good match from the start.
