« on: September 16, 2016, 08:20:56 AM »
 CHARACTER

Name: Thurn Ganssenwald

Age: 36

Species and Gender: Human Male

Symbol: A Fish pierced by thorny vines

Occupation: (Cherri Flora) Flower Shop Owner, Sakura's Guardian, Beacon Graduate

Appearance: urn is a tall thin man, about 170 cm and weighing in at 60 kilos, with lean muscles and tanned skin. He has a triangular head with a sharp chin and prominent cheek bones. He has black hair and it's short and spiky, combed upwards. He wears rimless glasses that cover his blue eyes. He is always wearing a blue apron over his white button shirt and grey jeans. He also wears black leather shoes. His symbol is seen on the pocket of his apron. Overall, he looks like a simple florist.
Battle Armor
  If he is forced to go back into the Hunter's business. He would wear his navy blue light armor, which consists of a simple chestplate, a single left shoulder, gauntlets and arm guards, metal boots and leg guards. He would also wear a military beret with his symbol on it. A belt is worn over the chest and hung from the right shoulder, it is lined with ammo packs placed inside the multiple casings, half of them being Water Dust bullets.

History: Born and raised in Vale, his father was a widower and for a living he fishes, so he was often out at sea. He learned lots about being a sailor from his father, from knowing the difference between the fins of sharks and dolphins to the knowledge of the stars. He gained a passion for fishing since then.
  He has been through many things, from having a fish hook stuck in his thumb to falling overboard several times due to all the fish on board. But his most memorable one change his entire perspective of his father. He fell overboard, but this time not because of fish, rather its because of a large whale. When he fell overboard, unlike other times when he fell because of fish where he stayed calm, he panicked and started flailing, attracting the attention of sharks. His father knew this was bad, so he took out his weapon, a rifle that Thurn has never seen before, and shot all the sharks dead with deadly accuracy. When he got on board, he could not stop himself from hailing his father with questions. Seeing something, his father decided to teach him on the basics of rifle shooting.
  In order to further nurture Thurn's sudden passion for combat, he sent him to Signal. Being both intelligent and combat skilled, he graduated from Signal with flying colors.
  But life in Beacon was a different story, he struggled with the intense combat training, but he preserved thanks to his team mates, who never gave up on him. He had a happy time with them. And for their graduation day, he brought them out to sea to fish. Those few hours where one of his happiest moments.
  He led a good life as a Hunter, but he always wanted something else. He found out what it was when he retired, someone to take care off. That person was Sakura Lunciar. When he came back from a mission which was to exterminate a Nevermore, he found Sakura in the streets near the port, cold and shivering. He took her in, where he listened to the story of how Sakura got here to Vale. He took pity and took care of her. He retired and started a flower shop, to help nurture Sakura's liking for flowers. He took care of her the same way his father did, with care and concern, no scoldings, just talks. He helped her adjust back to having a proper home, though he is often concern whenever Sakura leaves the house. He did many things for her, bought her books on flowers, got her spare parts to help in her projects and even went to the dangerous places to find the elusive moonflower. He did everything for her sake.
  When he heard Sakura got into Beacon, he kept singing sea shanties till she asked him to stop.

Personality: He is a happy man with a smile always on his face. He speaks in a polite fashion similar to Sakura's, but instead of the Japanese styled politeness, its more of the basic respect type. He enjoys fishing, along with shooting. He has yet to bring Sakura out fishing since he thinks that she may not like it. He is kind and a concern person, always the first person to consult with whenever you are feeling down. He was the glue that stuck his team together, and they were the ones who made him live on. He likes to sing sea shanties whenever he is out at sea. He dislikes prawns for some reason.

He does have a natural talent for spotting things people usually don't. He says its because of how fish make the finest of movements and humans to the same that show how they feel. Something he thought Sakura too

Aura and Semblance: His has a [color=#0A425E6]kingfisher blue[/color] aura and his semblance is Internal Navigation. This is how Internal Navigation works, it acts like a compass, so he never loses his bearings. Magnetics poles may disrupt Internal Navigation when near him, same goes for electric signals. It uses quite little of his aura, so he keep this up for 24 hours. It has no other use other than for finding where is North, South, East or West.

Combat Behavior: In battle, he shows no signs of that care and concern side of him. He knows whatever stands in front may kill another if he doesn't stop them now. He still knows how stop his barrage of attacks when he needs too. He is very precise, preferring to stay hidden until he can find the perfect moment to shoot Kingfisher. He isn't too take lightly in close range either, for he knows how predict movements thanks to his knowledge and sharp eyes. In the end, it's only up to cunning or sheer force to bring this man down.

WEAPON

Name: The Kingfisher

Primary Form: It's a kingfisher blue fishing rod that functions as a whip. Unlike other whips, the string is both strong and thin, and also very flexible. So be prepare to be cut in several places or be tied up or tripped by the string. The string is about 100 meters, the same as an average fishing line.

Secondary Form: Its secondary form is the rifle form. The Kingfisher was designed so it would function well as a gun and a fishing rod. So its designed to both have the straight handle of the fishing rod while having the curved handle of the rifle attached to it.
It undergoes no shifting of parts or anything, just shoot by pulling the trigger. But reload is different, just pull the lever at the top and it will allow the change of ammo or reload.
It has another secondary function.The lever has two uses, the first is for the gun as explained before. The second is that it works as a hook shot. Just reel the line still it reaches the tip of the fishing rod, pull the lever and it fires off like a hook shot. It would take it some time to reach some areas as it goes at pretty much the speed of a hand thrown harpoon.

Tertiary Form: The Kingfisher is just a fishing rod. Just replace the conical dart with a regular fishing hook and now it is a fishing rod!

Dust Functions: It is capable of using Water Dust bullets that freezes thing upon contact.

History: It was the very same rifle that Thurn's father used to kill all the sharks. It was passed down to him as a gift when he entered Signal, though Thurn did craft his own, he never used it. Right now, the Kingfisher hangs in the flower shop that he owns, on display for the public.

I seem to recall this character being a port from before.  Could you post the link from the archives to expedite?
