Noir
« on: October 01, 2016, 09:34:17 PM »
CHARACTER

Name: Noir

Age: 21.

Species and Gender: Human Male

Symbol: N/A

Occupation: Fourth Year Beacon Student.

Appearance: Noir is 5’11” and weighs in about 182 lbs. In contrast to his weight, a lot of it is mostly muscle, giving him the rather lean and fit composition which goes well with his outfit. Noir has a well-rounded, clean shaven face alongside a rather pale complexion. Noir has brown shoulder length hair, and high-torso length pony tail on the back. He has dark vacant blue eyes, signalling his blindness. He has multiple scars on his arms and legs from his training that had healed over time, but there were no scars on his face. His stance and movements are cautious, with a hand constantly out to insure he doesn’t bump into things or fall on his face.

Noir wears a plain black untucked sweater and dark blue jeans with it. Over the sweater is a dark green knee-length bullet proof trench coat, hiding a white neckwarmer scarf which is used to cover his mouth in any situation where it is required. In the sweater is some armored plating to defend himself from any attacks. Noir wears a dark black cap with dark blue boots. This is the only outfit Noir relatively wears, both in combat and all other situations. He has a white undershirt to go with the whole outfit.

His beacon outfit stays relatively the same as his normal outfit with no big changes to it besides a scarf that goes down to his knees. Occasionally, both of his outfits might be slightly off as Noir had to clean them and put them back on at some point. It looks like he has multiple duplicates.

History: Noir was blind since he was born.

All he knew was that he was born in Vale and that his parents were dead. That’s what ‘Morning Star’ told him anyways. He was adopted into ‘Morning Star’ - a mercenary group of what are essentially dropout hunters - at the age of seven, often treated carefully due to his blindness, but they would always consider him their youngest sibling of the family. However, due to the dangerous nature of their missions, they had to do something about Noir’s current arrangement. The group didn’t want to leave Noir anywhere as they don’t trust some orphanages to properly take care of him due to overflow of orphans, but staying with them would bring Noir into life or death situations. As a way to solve this issue for now, they unlocked his aura to shield any possible attacks, and taught him how to sneak and hide from other people whenever they got into… trouble.

As a member of said mercenary group, Noir had to get by somehow and be useful so that the group can get by with less work. Instead of doing nothing, he often did a lot of chores that a normal child would do. Some required visual assistance, others didn’t. However, the one thing that impacted him most was cooking. It was a hobby that allowed Noir to fully express himself. At first, Noir needed lots of assistance, but later on, he was able to rely on his other senses with ease when cooking.

Over the course of a year with the group, it was decided that Noir needed an education. Noir had struggled while learning anything due to his blindness, but due to the patience of the teachers of the mercenary group, he got by decently in his academics. One day, Noir unlocked his semblance after some aura training for his sensing, and to the alert of the teacher at the time, he found that it gave him sight around him. The teacher immediately informed the group and agreed that Noir can, and should be taught how to fight to defend himself. Over the course of two years, he learned how to fight from his many sparring teachers. They weren’t easy on him, but they weren’t hard on him either as he was essentially still a child. He would struggle occasionally since he was young but he got by decently. The mercenary group planned for Noir to be sent to Signal Academy with enough money once he was of age as there was only so much they could teach to him

Over time, Noir learned many things in both academics and combat to basically qualify as a huntsman-in-training. The group finally had enough money to drop off Noir at Signal Academy and pay off all his tuition. With that said, Noir was finally in Signal Academy and ready to learn what it means to be a hunter. After that, the group seemed to have dropped off the face of the earth, seemingly killed or caught after a long time of questionable morals. However, Noir would never know the fates of ‘Morning Star’ and deems it best that he should never know. He paid his respects, and they were forgotten.

He struggled in Signal for most of the time, mentally and socially, mostly due to his blindness. Noir had trouble learning the material due to not actually seeing it, and he could barely talk to other people without being embarrassed about his blindness. Once again though, his close friends and teachers gave patience to teach Noir, but his shame and embarrassment still stayed with him as they were no familiar faces to be seen. Upon graduation, he immediately applied to Beacon Academy and was barely accepted. After some of the troublesome time he had in the beginning, Noir sort of breezed by the first three years, and now he’s ready to tackle on the fourth year.

Personality: Noir is very soft spoken, often the most quiet of anyone in a conversation. He avoids interacting with people unless forced to as well as making excuses to get himself out of conversations. Whenever he does seem to speak however, it seems to be ridden with doubt due to his blindness and struggles in academics. In fact, Noir is pretty embarrassed and shamed by his blindness, and especially by his previous personality. The only time Noir seems to speak carefree is with his friends and team. However, there are still traces to his original and true personality that were overridden.

Noir was originally bitter and angry all the time. He was jealous of other people’s ability to see the world, to see beauty, yet he could not. It just got worse and worse to the point where Noir is simply jealous all the time for simple things that do not matter. It was only through some luck and “family” that allowed him to leave behind this bitterness. However, some traces of a jealousy habit stayed behind with it’s strong grasp onto him.

He wanted to see the world for what it really was, not for what he told it was.

Aura and Semblance:
His aura is blue and he has a large aura pool to go with it. Noir also has a fine control over it, which gives slightly better control over his semblance. His aura training allowed him to sense other auras and grimm at a farther distance than average as if to compensate for the lack of one of his senses.

Bird’s Eye - ”Even in darkness, you will be seen…"

Noir can create a bubble that can move with him, with a radius of about 50 feet around him. Inside this bubble, Noir can see almost everything in that bubble, but solids usually stops him, such as walls, clothing, and other general solid objects. Everything in that bubble is all black and white to Noir’s vision. Darkness and Light does not apply in this bubble, so there is always equal shading, creating an improvised nightvision. Beyond the bubble, there is only black to be seen as it is the limit. Other than that, the only other notable information is that Noir often strains himself by how long it is held, and that his eyes glow a bright blue when using the semblance.

Combat Behavior: Noir excels in bladed combat as well as a good eye for ranged attacks, occasionally. His semblance allows him to see through smoke, which allows him to use smoke grenades willingly. He’s not afraid to use any dirty tricks, willing to win by ‘any means necessary.’ Noir dual wields a falchion and a pistol to keep any enemies off him.

If Noir is forced to overuse his semblance, he is essentially blind. He also cautiously avoid using his aura, even in situations where it’s needed because when he goes blind, he’ll need it.  Noir also can’t see anything beyond the bubble, which gives him a severe disadvantage in blocking. He uses his semblance sparingly as well, which means you can force him to strain himself. Disarming him makes him useless as he’s not the best at hand to hand combat.

WEAPON ONE

Name: Blindness

Primary Form: It is a normal falchion with the handle being decorated black with gray swirls. The entire sword itself is forty-two inches long, with the handle being six inches. The rest of the sword is all bladed.
Spoiler: ShowHide


History: Not much history behind it besides as a useful weapon to keep enemies off him in melee range.

WEAPON TWO

Name: Perspective

Primary Form: It’s an M9 pistol with a slight alteration to the handle, trigger, barrel. It uses dust cartridges instead of normal bullets.

Secondary Form: A button on the barrel can bend it backwards into a straight line. In this form, the trigger stays where it is. Whenever the trigger is pulled, the gun will do it’s alternate affect based on the dust cartridge currently inside the gun.

Dust Functions:
Primary Form:
Fire Dust - A slight burn wherever it hits.
Lightning Dust - A slight shock.

Secondary Form:
Fire Dust - Turns into a lighter.
Lightning Dust - Turns into a taser.

History: Much like Blindness, there is no history behind it besides being an all around useful weapon against enemies.
