« on: September 11, 2016, 10:11:12 AM »
CHARACTER

Name: Uken Takeda
Uken is also known as the Butterfly Samurai, you would see why later, he is called this by people who have seen his skill or know of it. He is also called the Butterfly Samurai by his family, friends and juniors that don't know his name.

Age: 20

Species and Gender: Human Male

Symbol: A White Butterfly within a White Crescent

Occupation: 4th Year Beacon Student, Cha Cha Tea Shop Employee

Appearance: Uken is 155cm in height and weighs 75 kilos. He has a girlish face with circular head with sharp chin and rounded cheeks. He has brown eyes and black hair tied in a ponytail with a simple brown band. He has a lean body with light tan skin.

Everyday Clothing
He wears a conical straw hat with a small tuft of horsehair on it, not on his head, but rather hangs the string around his neck. He wears a black kimono with butterfly designs along with clogs. He wears a signature 1.3m white scarf with silver butterfly patterns around his neck to hide the string of the conical hat. He has his weapons strapped behind him in their scabbards.
If he isn't wearing the above clothing, he is wearing a blue t-shirt with a black leather jacket with a lengthen collar so it reaches his mouth area. He wears black fingerless gloves and blue jeans with a brown leather belt. He wears sneakers for footwear and has his weapons strapped behind his back. He also wears the conical hat on his head and the scarf is tied around his left upper arm.

Battle Clothing
He wears the same scarf around his neck. He wears a black samurai armor without the kabuto(samurai helmet) made from a light and durable strong metal. His weapon is strapped at his side in their scabbards. On the do(chestplate) is his symbol.

History: Uken is the son of Naro Takeda and Misume Takata, all three born in Vale. Naro Takeda is a mechanic specializing in Dust Mechanics. When Uken was young, he often learn lots about Dust and using them in Semblances. Misume on the other hand was a Huntress and tea shop owner, so she wants Uken to follow in her footsteps. Training was tough and tiring as she prefers to use heavy weapons, so he got stronger and his muscles grow, not in a bulky way but more of the lean types. He ends up choosing his own weapon though. He unlocked his aura and semblance during training too. He learns about Foci from his father after unlocking his aura, so for his birthday, Naro got Uken his own Semblance Catalyst, which he personally design for his son. He enters Signal and during his free time, he trains in using Dust infused Semblances, eventually he became a caster. He still keeps the Foci as a memento. During Signal Years, he spent 3 good years making his weapon, and has to make do with with his mother's other weapon, a strong wooden sword. He finishes it on the last year in Signal, a katana with dust catalyst for his semblance. He graduates with excellent scores in Dust Mechanics and Combat. He enters Beacon soon after.
  His first year was uneventful, he made friends, spent time with his team, he planted Bonsai Trees. The only thing he remembers is that one of his teammates likes to tease him about him looking like a girl without the armor and the team mate would try to get Uken into girl clothing using tricks. Uken still laughs it off before beating his friend to a pulp. He also spent his free time learning flower arranging, writing poetry and learning to make tea, in fact his tea set is has as such value as his weapon.
  His second year was more eventful, he went on more difficult missions, and got his title Butterfly Samurai as a joke because of how his semblance is related to butterflies. It all started when he was using his aura to fight against a Death Stalker, trying to get the stinger. His team was fighting off some Ursas when they saw glowing Monarch Butterflies that exploded. They found out it was Uken at work. But it soon became a proper title. He even planted more bonsais and made more bouquets. He got his scarf as a birthday present from his friends.
  Third year was fine, he started working at his mother's tea shop Cha Cha Tea. He became better at making tea and now gains a small allowance.

Personality: Uken may not give you a look of a good first impression, but the charisma of a good man and tongue as soft as a breeze. He is humble, never flaunting the masterpiece of a weapon he made. He is also kind, never harming anyone until his hand is forced. He likes butterflies, which he shows through the fact of his clothing and fighting style. During most of his free time he sits down in a secluded area, mostly in a tree's shade with a small breeze. He would be making tea or simply meditating. He is quite superstitious, so he tends to avoid doing things that might bring him bad luck. He likes to make flower arrangements and tea, specifically with his own personal tea set he bought. He never lets anyone touch his weapons, without a hesitation he might attack, but would still his blade before he does anything serious. But if someone catches him making tea, he might invite them to join him or just ignore them until they talk. He is loyal too, never letting an ally down, always sticking to promises. He never liked being in girl's clothing, height tear you up before you could even try to put a headband with ribbons on him. When it comes to classes, trust him to ace both Combat and Dust related lessons, so does history and geography, but he sucks at machinery and tends to make them go boom...

Aura and Semblance: His aura is Silver. His semblance is Butterfly Dance. Butterfly Dance allows Uken to conjure white silver butterflies made from aura. They fly where ever Uken wants them to, but they fly like normal butterflies when Uken does not want to control them. Each butterfly is only has a 4 cm wingspan and are as light as a feather. For every 25 butterflies, he uses 1% of his aura but the values change depending on the size of the butterflies. Depending on what color the butterfly has, a different dust is infused, it also changes their appearance. Each butterfly may take a tiny bit of dust, but large flocks can deplete a small canister that usually last 30 minutes to only 5 seconds, so he avoids trying to use his semblance with dust unless necessary.
Silver Butterfly- The Regulars
Silver Butterflies are the base form, though not useful combat wise it can be useful when shrouding somethings due to the mass number Uken can summon them. They are also useful for lifting light things up, up to 2 grams. They can change size unlike the dust infused ones, up to a metre is their max. A enlarged butterfly would take up 10% of his aura.
White Butterfly- The Cabbage
White Butterflies are Kinetic Dust infused, which strengthens their defensive power to be enough to block swords or a gunshot from a rifle as a flock of 100(these can't change size) but a good sniper rifle or a rocket can break it. Kinetic ones glow white and look like cabbage butterflies.
Orange Butterflies- The Monarchs
Orange Butterflies are Fire Infused forms that resemble a monarch butterfly. They act like tiny explosions, not enough to damage anything on their own but a flock of 1000 can be enough to blast walls. Like all dust infused butterflies, they can't change size. They emit a bright orange glow in the dark.
Green Butterflies- The Swallowtails
Green Butterflies are Wind Dust infused. They resemble Swallowtails and they fly faster. Single ones can blows small gust of wind to distract but flocks of 1000 can form small tornados enough to grab bullets and other projectiles, though it doesn't work for heavy projectiles like bombs or rockets.
Grey Butterflies- Glasswings
Grey Butterflies are Glass Infused. They resemble Glasswings. Grey butterflies reflect light, so they when they form flocks, they light reflecting can be excellent for hiding things or confusing Grimm and enemies. The butterflies either reflect light by staying still to create a giant mirror or adjust their wings in specific positions to create a semi camouflage effect where they reflect light around an object.

Combat Behavior: Float like a butterfly, sting is like a bee. Float like water, swift as wing. Due to his training, he has learn when to strike at the perfect moment as heavy weapons are hard to move. He also tries to find weaknesses as a wooden sword is not good for hitting things like a madman, so he strikes the weak spots instead. He aims for joints, neck, head or chest, never the back, for he thinks it not something a strong swordsman should do. He never attacks when his opponent is down. His samurai armor provides excellent protection, the bulk of the armor making it hard to fight in small spaces. And having no head protection means his weak point is the head. He can swim with the armor on thanks to training.

His most notable combat behaviour however is his self made fighting style, Light Touch. Light Touch style doesn't use brute force, nor strong force infact. The thing about Light Touch is that it's quick and painless, sure not the most effective against things that are thick in armor or have fast aura recovery but the wounds are there, you don't feel them. It utilizes his weapon’s sharpness which he took so long to make. And that sharpness won't go away.

WEAPON

Name: Qing Song

Primary Form: Qing Song is a 2 metre long black katana with a red hilt. It has a slot at the cross hilt of the katana that acts a place to load small dust canisters, Kinetic, Fire, Wind and Glass. Then it would lock in a place where the dust is drawn from the canister to the inside the katana to use it as the weapon itself or for his Semblance. It is sheathed into a scabbard coloured red and has a yellow rope attached(traditional katana scabbard thing)

Dust Functions: uses four types of dust. Only one of each can be loaded and each load last 30 minutes. He carries 10(excluding those loaded into Qing Song) of each incase he runs out
Hit Blade
Kinetic Dust is loaded into Qing Song which gives it a white glow. When it hits something, instead of cutting, it knocks back the target.
Lighter Blade
Fire Dust is loaded into Qing Song which gives the katana a red glow. When it hits something, flame erupted and hence burning the target.
Whirlwind Blade
Wind Dust is loaded into Qing Song which gives it a green glow. A noticeable swirl of wind surrounds Song to make it more deadlier in sharpness.
Reflection Blade
Glass Dust is loaded into Qing Song which gives it a grey glow. Qing Song gets coated in glass hence making it sharper but the glass coat breaks upon hard contact, for example the tough armor of a Boarbatusk. It also reflects light to where the flat side of the blade is facing.

History: It took 3 years to get Qing Song to work. Uken had to study about weapons, get the shape right, the process right and the look right. He would spend all night just watching the flames that made Qing Song’s blade. He eventually finished it on his 4th year in Signal, and he finally had a good night's rest.

WEAPON 2

Name: Mo

Primary Form: Mo is a short blade katana of the length 1 metre and it's made of wood. It is made of a special wood that gives it the endurance to survive a few strong hits, in fact it takes a good 4 blows from a large heavy hammer to break it and is coated in a special liquid that makes it fireproof and gives a bit of shine. A tail of green cloth trails from the kashira(end of the hilt).

History: His mother's first weapon and his saviour before Qing Song was made. It was passed down to him as a training weapon. His mother may use a greatsword but she is skilled in using this light weapon. He trained to use it under her before he handled Qing Song. He still trains with it rather than Qing Song and brings it out to mission along with Qing Song. Together they form Uken's sword fighting style, Light Touch.
