Sandy Smoke
« on: September 11, 2016, 10:28:11 AM »
CHARACTER

Name: Sandy Smoke

NicknameSand. He asks people to call him by this to minimize the amount of people recognizing that he has a girl's name.

Age: 18

Species and Gender: Male Alsatian (German Shepard) Faunas

Symbol: The cracked head of a Shenzi matriarch

Occupation: 1st year Beacon student (preliminary study at Oasis)

Appearance: Sandy is 168 cm tall, weighs 50 kg and has a figure to match this, he would look malnourished if his slender form didn't cause all of his muscles to be relatively prominent. He has short blonde hair and German shepherd ears on top of his head along with Large green eyes. He has a keen sense of hearing and smell along with a German shepherd's tail. Despite Mistral's climate being colder Sandy still wears his standard equipment from Vacuo which is a pair of of white slack pants made of breathable material along with a sleeveless tunic which is an unsaturated yellow in colour. He has had the ice dust removed from his clothing to make it better suited to Vale's Climate and has added a long khaki coat to his look for similar reasons. He also wears a band-aid across his nose which hides a scar from his encounter with the Shenzi.When the Beacon uniform is compulsory Sandy wears his jacket open and his pants slightly low to make room for his tail. on especially cold days Sandy will completely change his outfit to a pair of jeans, a proper shirt, a light hoodie with 2 way zips along with his coat.

History: Being born to 2 Council sanctioned scavengers in Vacuo Sandy spent a large amount of his early childhood on a sandcrawler with the extended family that was his parents' team which he greatly enjoyed despite not spending an awful lot of time with other children. Sandy spent a lot of time training with the on board huntsman in self defense and unarmed strikes along with aura as they were worried that someone looking to steal their loot may attempt to kidnap him. However he wound up in a different sort of Peril when he was 12 and thought it would be a good idea to head out and explore some caves on his own. As he was inside the cave he heard someone crying and went to investigate only to walk into a trap and find himself surrounded by Shenzi. He would have died that day if his parents hadn't noticed he was gone and the Huntsman had come and saved him. After the incident his family kept a close watch on him until he was old enough to go to Oasis where he made his weaponry and studied even more heavily on aura and learned his semblance. In his final year at Oasis however something disastrous happened during a training match with a fellow student that Sandy didn't get along well with. Sandy decided he wanted to use this training match to teach the student a lesson and fought incredibly hard and wound up going too far breaking an arm and a leg of the poor boy. Despite it being recognized as an accident Sandy found himself feared by the other students and knew that reputation would follow him into shade. Because of that Sandy talked things over with his Family and reached the decision that he would complete his training at Beacon and become a Huntsman instead of a scavenger.

Personality: Despite being very intelligent and rational at times Sandy is easily swept up in his emotions and as a result is known for making incredibly dumb decisions because of what he was feeling at the time (It is was caused him to attend Haven instead of Shade.) Due to being emotionally driven the way he is he is very quick to form opinions of others and if he is greatly angered by someone he will hold a grudge for a long time. The opposite is the case as well in that he doesn't make friends with many people nor does he make them fast but once he feels he has truly befriended someone he would go to hell and back to maintain that friendship. Despite it being very easy to cause an emotional reaction in Sandy and cloud his judgement unless the emotions are extreme they will burn out rather quickly, especially if he is given support from his friends. Also don't inform him that Sandy is usually a woman's name, he knows and being told pisses him off to no end.

Aura and Semblance: Sandy's aura is a sand yellow in colour and he has a significantly larger aura pool than most others and he is capable of advanced aura techniques. His semblance allows him to send out pulses which allow him to detect what surrounds him within a 20 meter radius. These pulses go out at 5 second intervals. Maintaining this semblance costs 5% Aura every 6 pulses or 30 seconds.

Combat Behavior: Sandy is a very flighty fighter and is durable as all hell Given that he focused on Aura from a young age he can take a significantly larger beating than most but he doesn't let that allow him to be slack in his evasion game using his Grappling hooks to fly around like a monkey and get into awkward angles to either pelt his enemy with bombs or just straight up punch them and run away before they get the chance to counter. Unfortunately even with his aura enhancing his punches he cannot hit very hard however his punches do have a lot of driving force (Doesn't hurt much but has pushes really hard). Also he is so used to having his Grappling hooks that if they are disabled or neutralized in some way (e.g. nothing to swing off) he will be entirely reliant on his aura for defense which while powerful won't hold out forever and he is unlikely to be able to take an opponent in a stand up fight despite his skills with martial arts being decent, having an intermediate level skill with both kickboxing and Zen-do-kai, he is unused to situations which force him to do so and as a result cannot evade or block efficiently in such scenarios. This paired with his low stamina mean that in an environment where he cannot swing freely and has nowhere to hide and catch his breath he will experience incredible difficulty. However with the use of his semblance and his Aura's instinctive "sixth sense" along with good hearing and sense of smell he is excellent at fighting with impaired vision.

WEAPON

Name: Steel shooters.

Primary Form: Large bulky sand colored gauntlets that contain a grappling hook and about 10 meters of thin wire which can be fired at high velocity and reeled in with enough force to pull Sandy off his feet if he hasn't prepared himself for the force.

Electricity: Creates a a small area filled with electrical energy which jumps to metal within it.
