Galileo Mephis
« on: September 12, 2016, 12:13:28 AM »
CHARACTER

Name: Galileo Mephis

Age: 20

Species and Gender: Human Male

Symbol: A top hat with an Ace of Diamonds card on it.

Occupation: Magician, 4th year Beacon Student, Fortune Teller

Appearance: Galileo is 162cm tall and weighs 64 kilos. He is androgynous. He has the physical shape of a flat chested female and feminine shaped face. But he has the sharp chin, the emerald eyes and lankiness of a male. You basically can't tell whether he is male or female at first glance. He even keeps his indigo(dyed, his hair is black) hair long and spiky. His teeth are pearly white and tends to wear blue eyeliner.

Now… Galileo doesn't have a fixed choice of clothes. He is always randomizing his choices. But he does wear specific types of clothing. He would normally have a top hat, white undershirt, black belt, long pants, leather shoes and a coat with a flat collar. But his top hat will have an Ace card, usually the Ace of Diamonds, the diamond being his symbol.

Even worse, he tends to walk around with a briefcase, one very simple looking briefcase you often don't notice it. Inside the briefcase, is clothes of various kinds. Due to a certain talent, he can change into those in a blink of an eye. If you see a girl in the Beacon uniform with long spiky indigo hair with a briefcase, it is most likely Galileo playing with your head. Yes he crossdresses and disguises himself in school.

History: Galileo since young was an aspiring astronomer, and gifted magician. Galileo was born into a family of magicians, well two female magicians. Yes his parents are lesbian and one human and the other Faunus, the Faunus being also an actor of both voice and reality. This lead to Galileo having a very very plain outlook on the world, hence his love for the stars and all that in the sky, because it seems so interesting.

Galileo started practicing magic and various other types of performances like quick change clothing since he was born, because he became part of the tricks. Eventually at 4 he started with his acts, usually miniature ones like making coins appear out of your ear and making the apple vanish. But as Galileo became 9, he pretty much knows every trick in the book and innovated his own tricks as well, though they remain small scale until he was 13 when his parents approve of him going for big tricks like sawing people in half.

But due to his parentage, he wasn't the most popular kid in school. He was often teased to be adopted(he isn't, sperm donation) or a freak of nature. But his magic tricks did help him garner friends who helped supported him in his troubling years.

He had no vision of becoming a Hunter, so he attended a regular school and pursued astronomy, still performing from time to time in his parents’ shows, and becoming quite the celebrity in school. One day he invites his classmates to one of his performances and it had a nasty twist.

One of his classmates decided to ruin his show, so with the help from a few others, lured a Grimm into the show tent and to their delight and horror, his show got ruined but at the consequence of their classmates being injured if it wasn't for one of Galileo’s classmates bringing along her dad.

Galileo’s vision changed, he still studied astronomy, with help from his friends, but went to Signal to study. He took a while to get used to having a change in education but he managed. He also gained an interest in astrology and fortune telling. Also he learnt to throw shurikens from his friend’s dad, and also went through the most vigorous exam you would probably ever see, many times did Galileo throw up as he was pushed beyond his limit.

Galileo applied into Beacon and surprisingly passed the exam, his way of fighting and technique was much different from typical fighters and hence helped him gain a bit of popularity and a bit of distaste from some students. He still does prefer to not boast about it, he did not want another incident like back then to happen again.

Life went somewhat smoothly for Galileo for the next three years. His human mother passed away from an illness and hence it was just him and his Faunus mother running the show, but due to his Faunus mother’s age, she couldn't do the amazing tricks she once did and hence Galileo had to juggle magic and school, hence finance was getting tight for Galileo’s family.

He did manage to get a sponsorship from one of his astrology friend(the same one whose dad saved them) and made lots of money for his Faunus mother to retire happily while Galileo continued the family business. He also confessed to that friend, and was promised her hand in marriage once he graduates from Beacon, because her dad wanted a capable man, infact Galileo still goes through that vigorous training.

Personality:Galileo is what one would describe as someone with a loose screw. He is crazy, weird and really really goofy. His sense of humor knows no bounds and always is ready to drop a fart bag on the teacher’s seat just for plain entertainment.

He doesn't give a care about the world, he is never serious and really quite the annoyance if you would say. But he doesn't care if you get pissed, he enjoys it, and makes fun of you. It happens to be worse with his amazing voice acting skills and variety of costumes he keeps. He also “breaks the fourth wall” kind of person, thinking there is some outer force actually watching what they are doing, even there isn't am I right?

But take him for no idiot, he is quite smart. Math, English, Physics and other Sciences trust him to ace. As for other subjects, kinda below that league, just at average. The only exception is the other subjects is Combat. In the school records, he may seem average, but he is much better than average, in fact, he is secretly one of the students with a better track record.

But, his androgyny makes his quite the pain in the neck when you meet him for the first time. You think you approach someone new, turns out it is Galileo wearing a disguise. And he is good at it, he is quite the actor.

Unbeknownst to all, he actually does have a more humane normal side. He is a nice man and shows confidence no matter the situation. He is someone who thinks with his head and believes in his tools of logic and reason. He is calculative and rather cool headed. Then again, he has to maintain that mentality as a magician. Also he is dedicated and loyal to a fault. Then again he can look like a buffoon.

Aura and Semblance: His aura is Psychedelic(He doesn't have a fixed color, since it really really random, just like him). His Semblance is Shape. Shape allows Galileo to create geometric objects or organic shapes with his aura. Depending on the size of the object, the cost can be negligible or real hefty. But it rarely has a whole chunk as, in order to make shapes, he needs his hands. So anything larger than his arm span is almost impossible, or anything that isn't a geometric object or organic shape(this means no doomsday machine and mechanical objects). The objects can be used defensively, offensively or as a means of moving. He can control any Shape he makes.
Object smaller than his hand - No cost
Object the size of his hand - Just a minor tingle
Object in size up to his upper arm length - Hand feels a rings of numbness
Object in size to his half his shoulder span - Hands feel numb, still bearable
Objects his height - Hands feel numb, almost unbearable
Objects above his height(max 3 meters)- Whole arm is numb, can make move his arm unbearable if he goes to the max. Usually a last resort.
Each Shape can last about an hour, and the numbness won't go away until he gets a good rest for an hour. Shapes are created with a 0.5 second delay.

Combat Behavior: Galileo is a very weird fighter so to say, the way he fights, is meant to make you underestimate him, make him seem like an idiot and basically mess with your head. Case in point, unless you have no emotions or have no head, you will most likely will get trolled by Galileo as he "entertains" a "crowd".

Once you get tangled in his tricks, he would show you how much of a demon he can be with his Semblance and fencing skills. He is agile, excellent footwork, astronomical hand eye coordination and reaction. All that from being a magician. By the time you realize, you are most likely finding yourself with wounds all over your body from quick movements and pinpoint stabs.

But Galileo is a softy, without Aura or his Semblance to defend he would be easily dealt with a few strong blows. That is if, you can hit him.

WEAPON

Name: Crux

Primary Form: Crux is a meter long metal sword cane(specifically the blade type is of a sabre) with the handle resembling a horizontal crux. Galileo likes to call Crux his multi purpose stick. Mostly because many of Galileo’s tricks revolve around Crux. Near the handle is a rectangular shape, the spacing the size of Galileo’s hand. A button can be seen on both sides of the handle.

The rectangular box contains small shurikens, the size of Galileo’s palm. Upon pressing the left button, a mechanism inside pushes up a shuriken and is held in place by a small gap under the handle. Galileo can then proceed to throw them. The rectangular box contains 20 shurikens.

The right button flips the handle so it forms a line with the metal blade hidden inside and separating itself from the mechanism required to give Galileo shurikens. He then can proceed to unsheathe it. He can't use shurikens from the cane when the blade is out.

Dust Functions: There is dust up his sleeves, no kidding. Galileo has a special gauntlet hidden by his sleeve that gives him dust canisters to use. He loads them into Crux through a loading attached where the handle and the blade meet. So when Crux’s blade is out, it sort of sticks out like a sore thumb on the straight line. He carries five of each type. Each dust canister lasts about 2 minutes.
Fire Dust- Makes his Shapes combustable
Water Dust- Makes his Shapes float and feel cool as a passive, makes his shapes explosive bubbles.
Earth Dust- Makes his Shapes denser and harder.
Wind Dust- Makes his Shapes become bullet proof bouncy balloons.
Glass Dust- Makes his Shapes fragile but with a see through property.

History: Crux was Galileo’s first weapon, he went from simple design from the most unexpecting. Meanwhile the gauntlet that gives Galileo’s dust canister and Foci comes from his girlfriend’s dad.

Galileo’s GF(NPC)
Galileo’s GF Lyra visits Galileo from time to time and brings him boxed lunch. They are usually found sitting together near the fountain. Lyra may seem like a dainty girl, but she is a black belt in Karate and is no pushover. After all her dad taught her everything she needed to defend herself from both Grimm and perverted eyes of man. She however becomes a flower when Galileo is around, he doesn't care about the person being beaten up either because he is too lovey dovey with Lyra.

He also confessed to that friend, and was promised her hand in marriage once he graduates from Beacon, because her dad wanted a capable man.

Personality:Galileo is what one would describe as someone with a loose screw. He is crazy, weird and really really goofy. His sense of humor knows no bounds and always is ready to drop a fart bag on the teacher’s seat just for plain entertainment.

He doesn't give a care about the world, he is never serious and really quite the annoyance if you would say. But he doesn't care if you get pissed, he enjoys it, and makes fun of you. It happens to be worse with his amazing voice acting skills and variety of costumes he keeps. He also “breaks the fourth wall” kind of person, thinking there is some outer force actually watching what they are doing, even there isn't am I right?

But take him for no fool, his knowledge on Physics and several sciences is astronomical literally, so is his math and English. Can't say the same for other subjects other than Combat, he is sort of below average.

But, his androgyny makes his quite the pain in the neck when you meet him for the first time. You think you approach someone new, turns out it is Galileo wearing a disguise. And he is good at it, he is quite the actor.

Aura and Semblance: His aura is Psychedelic(He doesn't have a fixed color, since it really really random, just like him). His Semblance is Shape. Shape allows Galileo to create geometric objects or organic shapes with his aura. Depending on the size of the object, the aura cost can be negligible or a whole chunk. But it rarely has a whole chunk as, in order to make shapes, he needs his hands. So anything large that his arm span is pretty much impossible, or anything that isn't a geometric object or organic shape(this means no doomsday machine and mechanical objects).
Scale of aura cost by taking his hand to be a circle.
Smaller than his hand- Negligible, or something like 0.01%.
Big as his hand, like a glove. 2%
Bigger than his hand by 5 cm in diameter, like a large ball. 8%
Bigger than his hand by 10 cm in diameter, like the inner circumference of a kid size floating tube. 16%
Bigger than his hand by 50 cm in diameter, like a round shield. 32%
As big as his arm span, like him in diameter (because arm span=height). 64%

Combat Behavior: Galileo has an interesting fighting style. Let me quote something he often says in a fight.
“Are you not entertained? Are you not entertained?”
Galileo’s fighting style revolves around being unpredictable and entertaining a non-existent crowd through various tricks and making things with his Semblance.
But he is excellent in fencing so don't expect him to be easily defeated, heck you don't normally expect the guy to even carry a sword with all the tricks he gives you.
His main firepower does come from his Semblance and an excellent use of a Foci. His Semblance makes the shapes, Dust makes them change in awesome ways. It does do things to his sword but usually he doesn't use it.
But he is quite soft, so give him a hard hit if you can get past his attacks and expect him to take lots of damage. His attack range only goes as far as mid range most of the time so stay very far away from him and if you can hit him, go ahead.

Edits made
-Added a bit of History to clear up how he even was considered skilled enough to get into a combat school. I made the addition because, Galileo's current life is influenced by the only male "parent", his girlfriend's dad. I believed he should play a more important role in Galileo's life, being the only male figure he ever had.
-Added his more human and normal side, yes he has one, I thought it would make Galileo more understandable someone who can still fit into society.
-Rewrote the 'Academic' part of his Personality. I rewrote it because, after a certain event on the forum, I realized that what I wrote there wasn't clear, it was causing misunderstanding. So I rewrote the whole thing to make it seem more clear what he is good at and what he isn't.
-Rewrote some parts of his Semblance. I changed it so it would be more clear how he uses his Semblance and changed the cost so it would fit the new combat update.
-Rewrote the entire Combat Behavior. Some people saw Galileo as someone who looks really underpowered for a 4th year. I want people to view him as someone capable of holding the position of future hunter, husband and a future graduate of a prestigious school.

He is someone who thinks with his head and believes in his tools of logic and reason. He is calculative and rather cool headed. Then again, he has to maintain that mentality as a magician. Also he is dedicated and loyal to a fault.

Object in size up to his upper arm length - Hand feels a rings of numbness
Object in size to his half his shoulder span - Hands feel numb, still bearable
Objects his height - Hands feel numb, almost unbeatable
Objects above his height(max 3 meters)- Whole arm is numb, can be unbearable if he goes to the max. Usually a last resort.

Combat Behavior: Galileo is a very weird fighter so to say, the way he fights, is meant to make you underestimate him, make him seem like an idiot and basically mess with your head. Case in point, unless you have no emotions or have no head, you will most likely will get trolled by Galileo as he "entertains" a "crowd".

Once you get tangled in his tricks, he would show you how much of a demon he can be with his Semblance and fencing skills. He is agile, excellent footwork, astronomical hand eye coordination and reaction. All that from being a magician. By the time you realize, you are most likely finding yourself with wounds all over your body from quick movements and pinpoint stabs.

But Galileo is a softy, without Aura or his Semblance to defend he would be easily dealt with a few strong blows. That is if, you can hit him.

WEAPON

Name: Crux

Primary Form: Crux is a meter long metal sword cane(specifically the blade type is of a sabre) with the handle resembling a horizontal crux. Galileo likes to call Crux his multi purpose stick. Mostly because many of Galileo’s tricks revolve around Crux. Near the handle is a rectangular shape, the spacing the size of Galileo’s hand. A button can be seen on both sides of the handle.

The rectangular box contains small shurikens, the size of Galileo’s palm. Upon pressing the left button, a mechanism inside pushes up a shuriken and is held in place by a small gap under the handle. Galileo can then proceed to throw them. The rectangular box contains 20 shurikens.

The right button flips the handle so it forms a line with the metal blade hidden inside and separating itself from the mechanism required to give Galileo shurikens. He then can proceed to unsheathe it. He can't use shurikens from the cane when the blade is out.

Dust Functions: There is dust up his sleeves, no kidding. Galileo has a special gauntlet hidden by his sleeve that gives him dust canisters to use. He loads them into Crux through a loading attached where the handle and the blade meet. So when Crux’s blade is out, it sort of sticks out like a sore thumb on the straight line. He carries five of each type. Each dust canister lasts about 2 minutes.
Fire Dust- Makes his Shapes combustable
Water Dust- Makes his Shapes float and feel cool as a passive, makes his shapes explosive bubbles.
Earth Dust- Makes his Shapes denser and harder.
Wind Dust- Makes his Shapes become bullet proof bouncy balloons.
Glass Dust- Makes his Shapes fragile but with a see through property.

History: Crux was Galileo’s first weapon, he went from simple design from the most unexpecting. Meanwhile the gauntlet that gives Galileo’s dust canister and Foci comes from his girlfriend’s dad.

Galileo’s GF(NPC)
Galileo’s GF Lyra visits Galileo from time to time and brings him boxed lunch. They are usually found sitting together near the fountain. Lyra may seem like a dainty girl, but she is a black belt in Karate and is no pushover. After all her dad taught her everything she needed to defend herself from both Grimm and perverted eyes of man. She however becomes a flower when Galileo is around, he doesn't care about the person being beaten up either because he is too lovey dovey with Lyra.

But take him for no idiot, he is a genius. Math, English, Physics and other Sciences trust him to ace. As for other subjects, kinda below that league, just at average. The only exception is the other subjects is Combat. In the school records, he may seem average, but he is much better than average, in fact, he is secretly one of the better ones.
There is something about the way you've changed and reworded this that is irking the hell out of it but I can't really put it into words. It might be because "genius" is in there, and the last sentence might be reminding me of the looks-weak-but-actually-strong cliche. If that's the case, I'd prefer that you used a word that is weaker than "genius" but still capable of conveying your message unless he is a literal genius in which case plsno. I recall you mentioning that people were underestimating your character (both OOC and IC I assume) so I'm not sure how necessary it was for the last sentence to be there given I'm not very aware of the situation, but I'd rather just have him have an at least decent combat record to go along with his apparent skill. Should you do that, I guess I should also add that just because he would have an above-average record doesn't mean he can win fights just because his profile says he has an above-average record.

Aura and Semblance: His aura is Psychedelic(He doesn't have a fixed color, since it really really random, just like him). His Semblance is Shape. Shape allows Galileo to create geometric objects or organic shapes with his aura. Depending on the size of the object, the cost can be negligible or real hefty. But it rarely has a whole chunk as, in order to make shapes, he needs his hands. So anything large that his arm span is pretty much impossible, or anything that isn't a geometric object or organic shape(this means no doomsday machine and mechanical objects). The objects can be used defensively, offensively or as a means of moving. He can control as Shape he makes.
Object smaller than his hand - No cost
Object the size of his hand - Just a minor tingle
Object in size up to his upper arm length - Hand feels a rings of numbness
Object in size to his half his shoulder span - Hands feel numb, still bearable
Objects his height - Hands feel numb, almost unbeatable
Objects above his height(max 3 meters)- Whole arm is numb, can be unbearable if he goes to the max. Usually a last resort.
Are these replacing stamina costs?
How long do these effects last? As long as the objects are created? This + a little time after having controlled the objects? Last until he's able to get good rest? Momentarily when the objects are created?

New edits:
-Change wording in the Personality
-Added details about how Semblance


And yes, those are replacing aura cost and makes more sense than a stamina cost.
