Primrose Aster
« on: September 12, 2016, 04:50:18 AM »
CHARACTER

Name: Primrose Aster
Nicknames: Prim or Rose

Age: 17, Born Niege 1, 63 AC

Species and Gender: Human Female

Symbol: A light yellow primrose on a white lace doily. The primrose's petals are slightly torn at the ends.

Occupation: 1st year Beacon student and part-time baker

Appearance: She's about 5'3", a pretty average height, and weighs 121 pounds. Her figure is slim and lithe with just a bit of muscle. A dancer's body, albeit shorter than usual. With fair skin, a heart-shaped face, a small button nose and big green/hazel eyes, Primrose is definitely not bad looking. She wouldn't call herself beautiful or stunning, but she's pretty, often thought of as innocent and sweet. This is not deterred from by her platinum blonde hair, always taken care of and always in a shoulder-length bob. If you look closer, which almost no one does, you can see the slight splash of freckles and her short, but dense eyelashes. Cosmetics are something that Prim would consider herself well-versed in, and seeing her using them is certainly not a rare occurrence, for she uses them often in daily life.

For her casual outfit, Primrose wears a long-sleeved white knit sweater. It's made of a few different knitting stitches, one in the middle, then vertical panels using different stitches on each side. In the middle is the widest panel, knitted in a condo stitch. Moving on outwards, it's the rib stitch, then the garter and loops, then the garter rib, then finally the plain diamonds stitch. She also wears a light yellow circle skirt over white sheer tights with little hearts on them. For footwear, she has bright yellow flats with a little bow on top of each shoe. In her hair is a little white and yellow polka-dotted clip-on bow. Glasses complete the look.

Her combat outfit is a plain white corset which has a back that comes up from behind, to form a collar around her neck, then go down to form two thick straps on her shoulders. Underneath it is a combat skirt, the bodice under Prim's corset. The skirt portion is a white flowery pattern over a primrose yellow background. She still wears her tights and flats, though the bow in her hair is gone, in addition to her glasses, replacing them with contacts.

The only change that Primrose makes to the Beacon uniform is the addition of her heart tights and glasses.

History: Primrose was raised in Vale by Rosalie and Sterling Aster, two loving and kind parents. Her mother was a baker while her father was a handyman of sorts. He did odd jobs and mechanical work, also crafting weapons here and there. Funds ran low more often than they would like, but they always prioritized their darling child, for she was also their only child. As a young girl, Prim often helped her mother with her business. At the time, it was only an online bakery, and Prim would take the calls and repeat the order to her mother. Needless to say, sometimes the orders got mixed up, but over time, Prim got used to it, and she absolutely loved working alongside her mother. She also loved school and was often a social butterfly, though she was also a big target for bullies. Fortunately for her, she had friends who would defend and help her. Along the way, her aunt taught her piano and flute for free, and after much begging and pleading, Primrose also took up ballet.

By the time she was about ten years old, her mother had finally saved up enough money to get an actual bakery. By that, she meant that she'd bought the first floor, which used to also be an apartment, of her apartment building, and transformed it into a quaint little bakery. It took money alright, but the whole family was still very excited and very happy for her mother. They lived in the suburbs, and only a block away from the public school too, so location wasn't a problem. Plus, she and her mother already had many customers from their online work too. With her father, his work with weapons was know fairly well known throughout the town, and his list of customers had increased significantly. They weren't the richest family in Remnant, but they were happy, and they lived a comfortable life, though Prim couldn't help but notice others who were less fortunate. Not the poor, the faunus, though the two did have a decent overlap. She'd seen many a faunus friend mention how their parents had to move to Vale because in Atlas, the only job they could get was being a dust dredger, which wasn't the best job out there. Some even had parents who'd died because of their profession in Atlas. That was when she started to sympathize, and started to develop a strong dislike (Prim doesn't like the word hate) for the Schnee dust company.

When she was in her teens though, Prim had seen a lot of bad in the world. On the very rare occasion that her family went out of the town, it certainly wasn't rare to be attacked by the creatures of Grimm in-between towns. Add in the faunus, and all the less fortunate, Remnant needed to be saved. And the saviors, in Prim's mind, were the huntsmen and huntresses. Her grandfather was a retired huntsman, and she loved to hear his stories about fighting Grimm, making the world a better place, having adventures and protecting everyone. Prim wasn't so innocent to think that being a huntress would be easy and just as fun as her grandfather said, but she wanted to help contribute to the happy and pure life that she wanted for everyone. Not long after she'd turned fourteen, her grandfather died. So just on a whim, she went to a trainer one day, and asked to be taught the basics. Now, she wasn't the strongest, she wasn't the best with a blade, or with a close-range weapon, but you know what she was? A good shot. A very good shot. The trainer was impressed, and Prim set her goals on getting into Beacon.

Over the next few years, the family managed to pay for Prim's training with the funds that they now had, thanks to the popularity of the bakery. Her mom had even started another one on the other side of town. Once she mentioned that she took ballet, and very briefly, rhythmic gymnastics, her instructor had the idea of using whips if she ever found herself in a situation where she had to fight someone without the possibility of going long-range. When she reached the appropriate age, Prim applied for Beacon, and passed. As a gift for her new year, her father made her the weapon she would call Wisteria, and bought her the whips.

Personality: Primrose is a sweet girl. She has a very positive outlook on the world, seeing it as a bright, happy place for a bright, happy girl as herself. She's an optimist, always bright, always having a smile present on her face. The only exception to her bright outlook is directed towards the Schnee dust corporation and all biased against faunus. She believes that faunus should be treated just like everybody else, and hates how the company uses the faunus and employs them in the most dangerous positions. Prim believes that they're just as human as everyone else, and is an active faunus rights supporter. When challenged on her beliefs, Primrose will stand up for them, as she stands up for most, if not all of her opinions. At least for a little bit. The problem is though, she's also a people pleaser. She always worries about others and their judgement of her, and tries her best to make everyone like her, hating when someone thinks badly of her. So when someone insults her, or gives off the impression that they don't like her, it'll be a deep wound for Prim. She'll desperately try to rectify this opinion, doing nice things and trying to seem the best she can, though she's already a very kind girl. Baking gifts for people is not uncommon.

However, there is a little chink in her armor. Prim is very sensitive, very timid when challenged, and if she works up the guts to disagree, it won't take much for her to rescind her words. When nervous, she'll stutter and start to fumble her words, which will in turn make her even more embarrassed. It doesn't take a lot to make her this way, nor does it take a lot for her to become scared, nervous, or embarrassed. It also doesn't take a lot for her to cry, which, as I'm sure you can tell by now, she does a lot. Interestingly enough, Grimm don't faze her. She can fight Grimm without letting out a whimper, but if someone acts mean to her, tears galore. But even though she cries easily, she's still a trooper. She won't give up easily, and her resolve won't be broken down too easily either.

Prim loves to dance, ballet in specific. It's been a hobby she's stuck with for a very long time, and if she hadn't decided to be a huntress, she would've tried to pursue a career in dance. For instruments, she plays violin and piano, and though she dearly loves both, Prim has taken a shine to the former more than the latter. She still loves them though, and will certainly play them as often as she can, as she brought her violin to Beacon. Old, classical songs are her favorite, ones that are light and soft, and ones that you can fall asleep to. Waltzes in particular. Baking is also a retreat that she values dearly.

Aura and Semblance: Prim's aura is a primrose yellow and her aura level is above average.

Pause: Allows Prim to sort of hold off the effects of hits and aura damage for a while, then unleash it all in a single burst when she stops using it on either herself, or others. The cost is 5% aura for each 2 seconds that she uses it, 2.5% for each second. Using this semblance, she can hold off the effects of attacks on others, make them feel overconfident, then unleash it all in a blast, to throw someone off balance. Or, she can use her semblance on herself defensively, to delay effects so she can draw out the fights and finish it. It should be noted that she can only use her semblance on one person at a time. If the strain system is utilized, Pause will take a good amount of effort from Prim, as well as concentration. Not enough that she has to stay completely still, but firing arrows is just about the most she can do. No fancy evading, running at most.

Combat Behavior: Prim is the type to stay back and fight long-range. Strength is definitely not her forte, so she usually uses her quick speed to go far enough that she can stay well enough out of danger. She uses this tactic both for Grimm and humans. If seen or targeted, Prim will use the ballet training and brief lessons of rhythmic gymnastics to evade the attacks, then try running to cover again, or run to higher ground. If directly confronted and her chances of running away unscathed aren't good, she'll bring out her whips and try to trip up the opposition, using acrobatic moves to make sure she doesn't get hit. Since whips might sting, but not do much damage to an aura-protected individual, Primrose will use them to knock her opponent off balance, or use the surroundings to her advantage.
