Dorian Aurelius
« on: June 27, 2017, 07:16:36 AM »

CHARACTER

Name: Dorian Aurelius

Age: 18; 16th of Machlud, 61 AC

Species and Gender: Human Male

Symbol:  N/A

Occupation: 1st year Beacon student

Appearance:

Dorian stands at about 5í10Ē with a toned, rectangular shaped body, weighing in at about 156 pounds. He has pale skin with no scars, tattoos, moles, birthmarks, etc. Dorian does not have any distinguishing features, he easily blends in with the crowd with his darkish brown and scruffy hair, brown eyes, and square face with no markings or abnormalities.

When he isnít in Beaconís uniform, Dorianís everyday attire consists of nothing but grayscale shirts and hoodies,black and tan khaki shorts and pants, and black sneakers.

In combat situations, Dorian throws on some light gauntlets, gloves, shin guards, backpack, and chest plate over whatever he feels like wearing under it. He does this mostly for looks instead of actual protection, but they do certainly come in handy.

History: Dorianís story begins with his parents, who could not be more opposite of eachother. His father was a cool-headed and calm businessman, while his mother was a hotheaded and fierce singer in an amateur rock band. But you know what they say; opposites attract. Dorian isnít sure how they met, but it most likely included a bar and alcohol since both were frequent drinkers. His father enjoyed a nice scotch, while the mother tended to enjoy whatever got her shitfaced.

Household disputes were frequent but never left any permanent damage, the family was relatively alright. They both took time to raise him into early childhood, but then had decided that they needed their old lives back. Father made enough money to support the family handsomely, and mother used her time to perform. However Dorian was left home with the family housemaid that was hired to watch over him, but she hardly acknowledged little Dorianís existence, except when he needed to be taken care of. The only thing Dorian had to keep him entertained was the educational tapes that were left around to help him learn, since he had hardly a family to teach him.

He entered school a bit behind, but soon began to learn everything. Time goes by and Dorian decides that heíd make somewhat of a change in his life, and train to become a huntsman. If he wasnít going to be recognized for most of his life, he should at least do something enjoyable, itís not like his parents would care anyways. He went through Signal and got into Beacon, and thatís where his story is now.

However Dorian has never failed to just blend in, heís had friends but never a best friend, he just hung around a group for awhile and coasted. His existence almost forgettable.
 
Personality: Dorian is a middle-of-the-road kind of guy, he does not really have any key characteristics, except the lack thereof key characteristics. He tends to blend in almost completely in a crowd, due to his extreme blandness, unless the crowd was compiled of people in extravagant outfits with extreme personalities. Dorian does not have an opinion on much, with no favorite or least favorite music, food, people, etc, but he is against evil and Grimm, but I think thatís the general consensus with most huntsmen. Heís a listener and a follower more than a speaker and a leader, tending to go wherever circumstance takes him.

Aura and Semblance: Contrary to his dull personality, Dorianís aura is a bright and shining gold that completely contrasts anything he wears, making it quite visible when he uses it.

Dorianís semblance is the bluntly named ďVelocity Change,Ē which creates a spherical zone around Dorian with a radius of 20 feet, in this zone, Dorian can change the velocity of anything that moves within it, up to five times slower or faster, but not the force behind it. However he has yet to master this and must choose to either speed up or slow down moving objects in the area (so no items speeding up and slowing down at the same time), however he chooses what is sped up and slowed down. The bubble is stationary, and does not move with Dorian, and it will continue to stay put until either Dorian cuts it off, he is too drained to keep it up, or if he's removed from the zone. The sphere's effects can also be resisted by aura, and his allies can choose whether or not to be affected by it. Also, anything larger than the sphere itself cannot be affected.  Keeping this bubble up isnít much of a problem due to his aura pool being fairly sizable, itís probably one of the few parts of him that kinda-sorta sticks out.

For Example, if a car is speeding toward Dorian at 100 MPH, activating the semblance with the car in the zone would slow it down to 20 MPH. However anything hit by the car would still be affected as if the car was going 100 MPH.

Combat Behavior:  Dorian likes to let his opponent(s) make the first move, and follow up according to the situation. He has options in all ranges, but does not excel at any particular one. His semblance is also useful for helping himself and allies either dodge enemies, or fight at an increased speed. He is definitely an all-around fighter, providing his own attacks as well as utility to his allies. Dorian doesnít use any flashy moves or super-secret-special-combo-supreme attacks, heís just a simple guy who does what he can, however this does not mean Dorian is a poor fighter, his combat skills are quite the force to be reckoned with, but he is underestimated because he doesnít show off. Dorian struggles with dealing with fighters who are in their element, I.E. a sniper in a ranged battle, or a brute in a up-close-and-personal fight, so he tries to avoid these situations, but that doesnít always work out for him.

WEAPON 1

Name: Dorianís Spear

Primary Form: A mix between a trident and a spear (6 feet long total), the center is a typical spear head (7 inches long), but there are smaller, thinner prongs on both sides (3 inches long) at the bottom of the spearhead.

(Think of a pronged fork with a reeeeally long and wider middle prong)

Secondary Form: The spear is collapsible and turns into something that resembles a dagger, it can be used like this in combat but itís mostly for storage purposes. (1í8Ē length give or take)

History: He made it at Signal when he attended, it has no sentiment or deeper meaning behind the weapon besides being a decent weapon.

WEAPON 2

Name: Dorianís Gun

Primary Form: Itís a rifle that can change from semi-automatic, three round burst, and fully automatic. Each magazine in this rifle can hold 40 bullets, and Dorian carries around a varying amount of bullets depending on what he had expected of events to come. He carries at least 5 extra magazines, but on missions he has a durable backpack that is loaded with ammo (Up to 20)

Secondary Form: Surprise! Itís also collapsible for easy storage. Or a blunt weapon, I dunno man, whatever gets your rocks off. It also has a nifty strap to carry it.

History: He also made this weapon at Signal. Issa gun.

Hello and welcome to the RP board! I'm going to go ahead and do a group review of your character.

After reviewing your character, almost everything seems good to go. The only thing that we had an issue with was his semblance. Your semblance is a great idea, but it is pretty OP as it stands. Therefore, we offer the following changes:

1. Anything bigger than the radius of the sphere is not affected by his semblance.
2. The sphere's affects does not affect those with aura who resist it (his comrades can be affected by it so long as they allow it to affect them).
3. The sphere is stationary when created and he can be forced out of the sphere's effects.

Those three changes will be enough to equalize his semblance and make it acceptable. Please feel free to PM me if you have any questions.
