Nox Aeterna
« on: September 11, 2016, 11:02:24 AM »
CHARACTER

Name:
Nox Aeterna
The Reaper

Age:
26, Saaral 13, 54 AC

Species and Gender:
Male Human

Symbol:
None.

Occupation:
Assassin
Hitman
Mercenary
All-Round Sociopath

Appearance:
Nox stands at 6'3 and weighs 195lbs. Nox's entire body is covered in scars and burns from his torture, with the unscarred areas being a ghostly pale. In fact, if you saw Nox, you'd think he was some sort of evil spirit, with his dark clothes, pale, scarred flesh and greasy grey hair. Nox speaks with a rasp as a result of his torture.

However, you won't see Nox's body, as he covers it up entirely. He wears combat boots, jeans and a shirt, all in black, under a black cloak. His cloak is torn and frayed at the bottom, and contains sleeves for his arms and a hood to hide behind. Nox also has black gloves. To compliment his Reaper motif, Nox has several white skull masks, similar to Death's from Darksiders, all with different expressions on them, some blank, some angry, some sad, whatever he's feeling at the time.

History:
Nox was once your average huntsman. He was born in Vale, went to Signal and Beacon, joined a team and graduated. This lead his team to take one last mission together, before they went their separate ways for a while. They decided to take down a crime ring in Mistral. This was supposed to be easy, but the information given was faulty, and the team attacked the criminal's compound, only to find that there were more guards, that were better armed and trained, with a rogue huntress on site as the group's top enforcer. Nox's teammates died, and Nox himself was captured in order to learn what information was out there about there operations. This consisted of extreme torture, which only got worse when he gave up the information, because the torturers were cruel, and enjoyed his suffering.

Eventually, a huntress who'd been following the crime ring, decided that she hadn't heard anything about the team in a while. She picked up the trail, and tracked down Nox. She rescued him, and brought him to a Haven Academy, as she felt it would be safer in case of psychological damage. She was worried that Nox may become violent, and felt that it would be safer to have trained hunters on hand to subdue him should her fear be accurate.

Nox's mind was shattered by the loss of his friends, and by the torture. He felt that it was his purpose to bring the same kind of suffering down on those who made him suffer. This eventually developed into a belief he was a Reaper, destined to kill. He escaped from Haven when he healed, and hid in the swamps of Mistral. He spent a year in a hut, training his body further, and creating Thanatos and Tartarus to be his tools of death. Now, five years later, he's become one of Remnant's most feared assassin's, by citizen's, criminals and hunters alike. He developed a habit of leaving a skull mask at the scene of the crime, to show that the Reaper had struck. Now, he takes whichever contracts he feels are worthy of his attention. You don't contact him, he contacts you.

Personality:
Nox is quite the troubled individual. Before he became the Reaper, he was a bit of a jokester, always laughing, smiling, never down. Now, he's cruel, cold and hard. Nothing about his current personality would indicate his past identity. The Reaper is a consummate professional, no jokes or mistakes, you want a problem solved, he'll solve it with extreme prejudice, and probably stop anyone from having a problem with you after.

Nox's torture has made him a sociopath with only one line that he will never cross: No children will die by his hand. This limit is his way of respecting his old team. However, this courtesy isn't extended to students of combat academies, as he feels they're ready for the real world. Nox is brutal, cruel and destructive, he uses the harshest of means to end his enemies. No mercy, no retreat, if you're in his sights, either you die, or he does, and he doesn't plan to die.

Nox has retained a mild sense of humour, though it is dark. This is best displayed in his most famous kill, where he disguised himself as a skeleton mariachi player to eliminate a minor drug lord during a festival in Vacuo. He kept Phobos disguised in his guitar, which he broke over the drug lord's head, and then shot the entire party, before disappearing, giggling all the while. Yeah, he's gone off the deep end alright.

Aura and Semblance:
Nox's aura is dull grey

Nox's semblance is called Night's Embrace and it allows him to meld his body with the shadows to be practically undetectable. However, Nox must be standing in complete shadows and he cannot move while hidden. People with semblances that enhance their sight will be able to see a human shaped shadow on the wall, and those with other sense may detect his breathing or scent.  Night's Embrace drains Nox's aura at a rate of 5% per minute.

Combat Behavior:
Brutality. That's the name of Nox's game, and his fighting style emphasises this. Nox has made himself strong enough to break the bones of people without aura protection with ease, and it's his preferred method of subduing opponents. With the martial arts of Muay Thai, Krav Maga and kickboxing under his belt, Nox is more than willing to try to beat the everloving shit outta anyone who gets too close. He combines these with the use of Phobos and Deimos, creating a short range maelstrom of pain. For those who prove themselves capable of withstanding this, or those Nox takes a liking to, Thanatos and Tartarus come out, and he reveals his true skills, becoming a true Reaper, using a fighting style that constantly switches between all his weapons and his fists, for maximum punishment Nox also has impressive stealth skills, with his semblance and natural silence. However, Nox has no long range capabilities, and cannot deal with snipers easily. Nox's brutal style also leaves him open to attacks while he focuses on delivering the pain to an opponent.

WEAPON

Name:
Phobos and Deimos (Fear and Terror)

Primary Form:
A pair of shortened handheld 12 gauge shotguns. Each gun contains a magazine that contains four shells, with a further 8 magazines in reserve, giving Nox a 40 shell arsenal. Phobos and Deimos are painted matte black and have tallies carved into the handle, marking the number of people slain by each gun.

History:
Originally Nox's weapons from when he was a huntsman, Nox had them painted black after his decision to become a killer, as blue guns aren't exactly the most nerve racking thing in the universe. It also helps distinguish his new life from his past.

Name:
Thanatos and Tartarus

Primary Form:
A pair of sickles, the handles and blades are jet black, with a ring of white at the base of the handle. The blades are crescent shaped.

Dust Functions:
Thanatos and Tartarus each contain a differing dust type, Thanatos containing electric and Tartarus fire.

History:
After his breakdown and transformation into the Reaper, Nox decided that he needed a close quarters weapon. Spending a year designing, creating and training with them, he used Thanatos and Tartarus on his first assassination, and left quite the mess. 4 years on, he has mastered the use of Thanatos and Tartarus
