Acacilla Nahualli-Roth
« on: September 26, 2017, 08:13:32 PM »

Name: Acacilla Nahualli-Roth - Goes by Aca Roth

Age: 17

Species and Gender: Human female

Symbol: Xochitl


Occupation: First year at Haven academy

Appearance: Aca stands at 5’6” and weighs 134lbs, slightly less than her sister in both regards. Aca has long dark hair that she lets fall to her upper back, onyx colored eyes, and a heart-shaped face. Just like her sister, her skin tone is that of a beige-mocha color, darker than most in Mistral but lighter than most Alapelagians thanks to her father.

Aca’s everyday outfit is the same as her combat outfit and, even for a huntress, it’s a bit extravagant. Starting from the bottom, she has a pair of black boots with only a slight platform. Above that, she has a pair of short, light, neon purple legwarmers with small versions of her symbol in a yellow star-like repeated pattern all over overtop of a pair of light red skinny jeans. She has a thin belt wrapped around her waist for the jeans, although in truth she doesn’t need it. Above that, she wears a tightly fitting black shirt that she once had bought for a workout regimen and over that a black leather jacket. The jacket is short, only reaching slightly past her waist and with sleeves only reaching to her elbows, and also baggy like it’s slightly too big for her. The jacket itself also has oddly protruding shoulderworks with a mix of the bright colors that make up the rest of her outfit along the shoulders and short sleeves. On her left hand she has a single leather glove, colored similarly to her leg warmers, that she uses to handle her saw blades.


Alt. Outfit Coming Soon™

History: Aca was born seven years after Malina was born. She, like Malina, was born to a priestess of Inogir named Acalitl and a semi-retired hunter named Markos. Her childhood was, compared to many other of her future classmates, normal. Her parents didn't die, her sister didn't die, no one tried to kill anyone, and yet there was still an empty feeling that seemed to build year after year, even if she wasn't old enough to realize it at the start.

Acalitl was very rarely home, her job at the temple was important, or that's what Aca was told, and it was necessary for her to spend so much time there. Even when she was home, she always spent time with Malina, teaching her about aura or dust or whatnot. Aca made due though, she still had her dad, and she quickly grew to him. Even for a father and daughter, she looked up to him, waited on his stories from back when he was a Hunter, loved hearing about Grimm.

While Malina was convinced into becoming a huntress, Aca had been planning for it for years, even before Malina left for Harbor and especially before she left for Beacon. Ever since she was little, she made drawings of outfits, weapons, Grimm, and everything in between. She knew one day she would become a great huntress, Malina may have learned about dust and aura but Aca focused her time on combat. By the time she was old enough to enter Harbor, the primary combat school of Alapelagias, she had already become quite good with swordplay thanks to her father.

Once she actually arrived at Harbor and was given a chance to create her own weapon, she knew exactly what she wanted to do. Of course she knew, she’d known for years. It started out as nothing more than a couple of hunks of metal with some magnets, a grand designer she was not, but it grew with her as she made her way through the school, excelling in her combat courses and joining with most of the class in her academic classes. With every year that went by, she became more and more like her father. The thought delighted her, even if it wasn’t entirely true. She knew she still had a long way to go before she could truly say she’d become like her dad.

When the time came to chose where she wanted to go for her secondary combat school, she was a bit torn to say the least. Shade was the easiest for her and her family, nearby, cheaper travel, and more Alapelagians but it was also in the middle of a desert and the thought of constantly sweating and trekking through the desert didn’t exactly appeal to her. Beacon was a good choice, temperate climate, good city, one of the most respected schools in the world, sure, but Malina had gone there. Aca loved her sister, she always said she did, but the thought of being at the same school that her sister had graduated from somehow made her uneasy. Atlas was always an option, her father had gone there after all, but it being so far north and intertwined with the military there quickly erased the thought from her mind. There was only one academy left, Haven. It had nice weather, beautiful art and land, delicious food, and only one pesky incident where the barriers of the city had failed. None of the options were perfect for Aca, sure, but Haven was where she would make her home.

Personality: Aca is naďve but not stupid. At her young age there’s a lot she doesn’t know about, especially since she spent much of her younger life training with her father, but she understands that and at the very least attempts to pay attention when she learns of something she hadn’t known about before. She tries to show off that she has some street smarts to people she doesn’t know, but they usually find out pretty quickly that she no idea what she’s talking about.

Aca is, even before her naivety, a kind girl and as far from a hateful person than anyone else in her family. She was never a hateful girl and never will be, even after countless lost friends, promises, forgotten birthdays and anniversaries that are sure to come, she is far from hateful. The closest she’s ever come to hate, in fact, is her resentment for Malina, resentment born from their mother always spending time with and favoring her sister. She resents herself for resenting Malina too, but she hasn’t learned how to hate herself just yet.

That’s all deep and hidden away though, the real Aca is the one on her surface, the fun loving, extroverted, extravagant, naive girl who just wants some friend and to be able to one day be like her father.

Aura and Semblance: Aca’s aura is a light red color and was unlocked, along with her semblance, at Harbor academy in Alapelagias. She prides herself on being able to take a hit and get back up thanks to her aura pool.

Aca’s semblance, which she named Yo-Yo, allows her to “tag” up to five objects with her aura. If she activates her semblance while one of these objects is within 100 feet of her, it flies back toward her left hand. The tags last 24 hours and tagging an object takes no energy from her, although making it return to her does. The speed at which objects return is dependent on the weight of the object she tagged. Her saw blades, which she most often tags, return to her at about the speed of a thrown frisbee. Smaller objects return faster and larger ones slower. If she has multiple objects tagged at once, she can choose which ones return to her, so she can choose just one to return, some, or all. If there is a wall or object in the path between an item and her, the item will simply slam into the object or wall as Aca doesn’t have enough control to fully control the things she pulls.

Because of her limited scope of focus for her semblance, Aca had learned to cause the saw blades to spin when returning to her. However this is the only modification she can do to anything she pulls back and it only applies to the saws.

Combat Behavior:  Aca is a close to mid range fighter. Her combat strategy usually consists of starting the fight close ranged and then forcing it further and further apart. She’ll start out fighting in close quarters with her weapon, throwing short ranged saw blades and eventually moving further and further away with longer ranges attacks and eventually utilizing her semblance to keep her opponent at range. This works very well for CQC centric opponents, however, for close-mid fighters like her, she usually just has to turn the fight into a battle of attrition, waiting to see who gives out first. She tries to use her weapon as a form of shield, as it is unusually wide for a sword, but this is only half effective for mid range opponents.

Her weaknesses are absolutely apparent when fighting a purely long ranged fighter as she has little to no way of reaching them or when fighting someone using high amounts of dust in her attack as using her weapon as a shield is nearly useless.


Name: Slinger


Primary Form: An unusually wide hand and a half sword. The entire weapon itself is somewhat concave, with the handle and blade meeting in a jutting point then both receding the further each gets.The blade itself is only sharp on the outer side. On the inner side it is split and open to allow for the second form to be used. Toe to tip, the entire sword is five feet long, with the blade being 3.5 feet and the handle being 1.5 feet. Though the entire sword is hard metal, save for the grip which is tan leather, it’s entirely painted and detailed to appear as though it’s a wooden baseball bat. It has a light tan color with darker streaks and swirls spinning around it giving the impression of being cut from wood and it even has a “Alapelagias Slinger” imprinted in an oval on the widest part of the blade. The Usual sword pommel is replaced with a more baseball bat shaped pommel.

Secondary Form: The secondary form isn’t really a form as much as it an alternative way to attack. In truth, the primary description is only half of the weapon. On the inner side of the blade, there is a slot extending from the base of the blade all the way to the tip, as well as a trigger on the inner side of the handle. The slot extends about 3 inches deep and is filled with 5 sets of electromagnets on either side and a small laser detection system with each set. Aca’s secondary method of attack is loading five, six inch, circular saw blades into the slot. Each saw blade is loaded between a set of magnets which lock them into place. Each set of electromagnets and detector is tied to the trigger. With a single trigger pull, the first set of magnets will unlock the saw blade and Aca can swing the weapon like a bat to send the saw flying through the air. Once the first saw has been sent, the detector on the first slot will detect that the saw is gone and the next trigger pull with deactivate the next saw.

Aca can pull the trigger once to release a single saw, multiple times to release multiple, or hold it to release all.

Details: When all saws are loaded, Aca has to hold the weapon with both hands and can swing it at a relatively slow speed for the RWBYverse. Because the first saw has little to no travel time, it also has low range. However, with a full set of saws, the weapon can be used as a dual edged sword instead of a single edged sword.

To put it simply, the more saw blades there are: The more she can use both sides, the lower the range of the saws, the slower the sword.

The less saw blades there are: The less she can use both sides, the higher the range, the faster the sword.

At full saws, she needs to use both hands to swing the sword, but starting at two remaining saws she can swing it properly with one hand. With full swinging power, the first saw blade can be launched 10 feet, the second 20 feet, and so on with a maximum on the last sawblade of 50 feet.

Dust Functions: N/A

Gear: Considering she doesn’t need pouches for ammo or dust, Aca has less pouches and belts and nooks and crannies than your average huntress in training. Instead, she has a small, black, circular backpack that she stores extra saw blades in. The backpack itself is similarly colored to the black of her jacket, though it has her symbol emblazoned in light red on the front.

In addition, she has a smaller circular pouch attached to her pants, just below the jacket. The pouch, like the bag and most of the jacket, is black. It’s also very thin, only able to hold five saw blades in it.

Because both the bag and pouch hold saw blades, the insides and outsides are more hardened and more resistant to rips and tears than the rest of her clothing.

History: Aca constructed this during her time in Harbor academy and repainted it to look like a bat before traveling to Haven.
