Name: Acero Walker

Age: 21

Gender: Male

Species: Human

Symbol: A human skull with a metal jaw and a robotic eye.

Occupation: 4th year student from Beacon Academy. Used to attend Atlas Academy

Appearance: (This is gonna be kind of bare-bones) Stands at about 5'9", weighs 175 lbs. (mostly in muscle), and has an toned, muscular build. Has a cybernetic left eye and arm due to the actual ones being damaged beyond repair in a futile fight against a horde of Grimm during his 3rd year. He also has a cybernetic lower jaw (similar to Raiden from MGSRR). The prosthetics are only about 1.2x stronger than his original parts, and his left eye can see stuff a lot better than his right one. He has multiple scars, including a Zuko like burn mark on the left side of his face. His hair is black and short. His eyes are red, and smaller than average and his eyebrows are solid, but separate at the ends farthest from the middle. When not in uniform, he wears a red T-Shirt that has a giant peace sign on the front, somewhat baggy black and white sweatpants, and red and grey shoes. When being deployed on a mission, he puts white and gold plating over his casual clothes (original I know). Due to a recent accident that occurred during a training session between students, Acero's body has suffered some disfigurements. He now has severe burn scars all over his body, along with a prosthetic left arm, left leg, left hip, left eye, and jaw. His casual apparel now consists of a
white long sleeve shirt with a hood, a black snap-back hat, black baggy sweatpants, and red/black tennis shoes. His combat uniform consists of a black, lightweight, full body combat suit. This suit is sparsely covered in carbon fiber plates at the forearms, pecs, upper back, lower legs, and middle thigh. These plates are colored silver, with gold outlines on the edges. He wears a dark grey belt that holds the batteries for his wrist laser. Acero also wears a somewhat bulky helmet that provides good protection from bullets, but at the cost of a camera only view from inside the helmet, meaning if the camera on the helmet is damaged, he will be forced to take the bullet proof slab off, revealing a visor. This helmet provides Acero with a H.U.D. that integrates with his arm cannon, showing him how many shots he has left.

History: This is gonna suck and I'm sorry

Spoiler: show
Acero was born and raised in the kingdom of Atlas. For most of his life, he lived a quiet, albeit dull life. Ever since he was young, he would go to school, train, go home, rest, and repeat. His parents werenít home very much due to them being on various archaeological trips, so the only people he could talk to were his older, very talkative sister, Talim, and their Faunus babysitter, Juno. Juno was a retired huntress that had come to know the Walkers by escorting them through various Grimm infested areas and ruins. She was a wolf Faunus that cared deeply for Faunus rights and was even a White Fang member when it first formed--she left when it started getting violent. Talim--who was 2 years older than Acero--talked about any topic she could think of whenever she could find an opportunity to, and Juno and Acero listened intently, but didnít talk unless Talim stopped to catch her breath. Acero and Talim treated Juno with great respect and grew up with hatred for those who take advantage of Faunus, even starting fights because of it. This behavior carried on until they got severely punished by their parents and teachers. Acero had never done anything notable in his life--except beating up Faunus haters--until he got to Atlas Academy. He spent three years there, being trained and taught by both his professors and Juno. Acero found his weapon, Solar Centurion, his second year and started to unlock his semblance at the same time. Acero worked for a postal service when he wasnít in school and started to save up money when he could, as he wanted to move to Beacon to avoid going into the military. Talim didnít like his decision, but respected it, as she knew that the military wasnít for everyone.

One day during his third year, Aceroís parents never came home weeks after their supposed arrival date. They were later found buried in the snow, 10 miles away from their dig site, along with the hunter that was protecting them. Their bodies had been torn apart by the Grimm, with the only discernible features being their clothing and their faces.  Acero and Talim mourned the deaths of their parents. Juno also mourned their deaths, and helped the two siblings bury their parents. The three found the dead coupleís will and inheritance letter hidden in the house. The letter stated that Acero and Talim would split their fortune, and Juno would keep their house and its belongings, along with any artifacts that the Walkers found and kept on their journies. These included various weapons, armors, and valuable trinkets. Juno sold most of it to a museum, which allowed her to live the rest of her life in peace. Talim took two unique talwar swords with her as she left for the military. Acero went back to school pretty depressed, and anything his former team did to cheer him up failed.

Before he left for Vale, Acero asked his team if they could hunt the Grimm that killed his parents. They agreed and made a 2 day journey to the dig site. The Grimm ended up overwhelming the 3rd years and they were all badly injured, Acero being in the worst condition due to fending off a horde of Grimm to save his friends. Acero woke up a week later and was in a hospital. He couldnít feel his left arm or see out of his left eye, but there was a feeling of cold metal touching his neck and upper jaw. His lower jaw, left eye and arm couldn't have been saved and were amputated as a result. Talim and Juno were crying as he looked at his new appearance, but Acero said nothing and looked at his remaining arm with a sense of determination. He looked at his caretakers and yelled at them to shut up and stop crying. This made the crying worse and he sighed deeply. The doctor came in and asked Acero if he would interested in prosthetic replacement parts. Acero nodded and signed off on the paperwork. Juno would would pay for these new limbs and the surgery about a month later. After about 2 weeks of recovery, Acero came back and finished his third year at Atlas. A week after school ended, Acero said goodbye to his friends and family as he left for Beacon Academy.

Recently, Acero was almost killed during a sparring match, due to a stray bullet hitting a bag of explosives that he was holding. He was rushed to the hospital and stabilized, staying unconscious for a few days as they treated the burn marks. When he awoke, Acero found himself in a similar, yet worse situation than before, parts of himself missing, scars all over his body. His sister and godmother came to visit him at Beacon hospital for a few days, crying over his newly disfigured state. After they left, Acero was visited by an official from Atlas. The official offered Acero new limbs and equipment, with a few strings attached of course. An easy option that the official gave was to sell out the schools plans for the Vytal Festival. The harder option was to do some paid, unaffiliated work for Atlas when he graduated, at least until the prosthetic's and new gear were paid off. Not wanting to sell out his new school and friends, Acero decided to take the harder option, and come work for Atlas when he graduated.


Personality: Despite the hardships he experienced, Acero is a very laid-back--albeit lazy--and caring person. He's not really one for school (he never tries hard in any of his classes, he just learns what he can and sticks with it, although he does study when he needs to pass a class) or conversation, but when he's with his team, he opens up and gives orders freely and confidently, something his team appreciates, but also gets fed up with from time to time. Ever since sparring accident, Acero has been proactive in studying for his classes and training for combat, knowing that he'd need to smarten and train up to repay his debt to Atlas. He does tend to keep silent, unless spoken to, but even then he keeps his sentences relatively short, unless the answer is complex. His hobbies include playing video games, listening to music, photography, boxing, and weightlifting.

Semblance: Flowmotion -- Acero can fluidly move around on both land and air. This allows him to perform feats such as kicking off almost any surface, air dash, swinging around lampposts, grinding along rails, and battling enemies with speed and style. Basically using his environment to his advantage. Acero doesnít move super fast, but he can keep up with speedier opponents (not Tyrian or Qrow kind of speed mind you) and outspeed and outmaneuver slower opponents. Acero can only air dash/wall jump a total of 8 times before needing to rest a bit.

Examples:

Spoiler: show


Acero can only use his semblance when the terrain calls for it, meaning if heís in an open field or desert, he loses a little maneuverability due to the loss of wall running/jumping, and can get overpowered by fast opponents due to his semblance excelling in tight places. It also takes a lot of accuracy and energy to pull off very complex maneuvers in a battle, which means if he messes up just a little, it could cost him. Due to having years of practice, he doesnít have to worry about his accuracy or energy too much, but the threat of messing up or running out of steam is still constant while he fights. If Acero goes 100%, he can fight for about 6 minutes. If he goes 75%, he can fight for about 8 minutes and so on.

(Taken from the Power Listing Wiki: http://powerlisting.wikia.com/wiki/Flowmotion)

Combat Behavior: Due to the nature of his semblance and his lack of a ranged weapon, Acero favors a hit and run fighting style, using the environment and his to outmaneuver his foes. He mixes all of his weapon transformation into his fighting style, blocking all kinds of attacks and getting in some of his own. This makes him a formidable foe to both groups and individuals, as it is hard to predict what form he'll use if you fight him for the first time. Acero also fights with a sense of chivalry and honor--asking for his foe's name, and even bowing to them in respect.

Acero is always cautious when fighting an enemy, in fear that he might be ambushed. This causes him to only give 75% of his max power when fighting, as he is afraid that someone else might appear. If this does happen, Acero will either retreat to a place where he can fight better, or he will go all out in an attempt to defeat his previous foe so that he can focus on the new one.

Due to his melee only fighting style, Acero can be kited very easily by swift ranged opponents, especially in an open environment like a desert or field. When this happens, Acero will play it safe and will either wait for his team to finish off their opponents, or he will simply use his weapons tertiary form to deflect the bullets and wait for the shooter to run out of ammo.

WEAPONS

Name:
Solar Centurion - A transformable sword that lacks any ranged component

Primary Form: Greatsword Form - The basic form of the weapon, there are two holes in the sword near the top and bottom. There's a button on the hilt that allows it to split in half into its quicker form. The sword is orange and red.

Secondary Form: Dual Swords Form - After pressing the button on the hilt, the sword can be split in half. This form doesn't hit as hard as the greatsword, but they quicken the users attacks, allowing him to keep up with fast foes. There is a mechanism on the bottom of each swords hilt that lets them link up to each other to form a Polearm.

Tertiary Form: Polearm Form - This form allows the user to clear waves of weak enemies and can also be used to deflect bullets and other projectiles of reasonable size i.e. arrows, small to medium sized rocks, etc.

History: Before, Acero only had a basic sword and shield when he attended Atlas Academy. Aceroís parents refused to pay outrageous prices for Atlas sanctioned weaponry, so they gave Acero his great grandfather's sword and shield and promised him that they would get him better equipment, but never did. While on a class field trip to some grimm infested ruins in the snowy Solitas mountains, Acero found the weapon that would later be named Solar Centurion in an old, yet untouched tomb. The tomb was guarded by several Ursasí and Geists--who possessed suits of armor to attack. Acero managed to overpower them with his semblance--which at this time hadnít fully developed yet because it was his 2nd year. With all of the enemies defeated, Acero picked up the weapon and felt an unfamiliar, yet kind warmth fill him, as if the weapon was congratulating him on his victory. Acero gave his handme downs back to his parents and kept his new partner close to him at all times. He named it Solar Centurion the day after he got back from the field trip and has proudly wielded it since then.


Name: Vortech Blaster - A small, semi-automatic, silver, black, and red laser pistol built into Acero's prosthetic left arm.

Primary Form: The primary firing mode of the weapon is accessed when Acero bends his wrist down towards the ground, causing the panel covering the laser to flip up towards him, revealing the laser. The weapon is connected to Acero's brain like the arm is. He just needs to think about shooting something and it will happen.The laser relies on special batteries that are pretty expensive and non-rechargeable, meaning Acero can only carry about 2-3 batteries on a mission as he is afraid of losing them. The batteries are too large to be kept inside of Acero's arm, so whenever he wants to shoot something, he needs to put in a battery to power the weapon. Each battery is good for 20 shots. The laser is as strong as a desert eagle, but without the recoil. Instead, Acero has to worry about overheating the gun by firing it too much.

Tertiary Form: When the laser is not in use, it is stowed in a retractable panel on Acero's left arm.

History: Acero built this weapon in the Beacon workshop to help him combat enemies that were always out of his sword's reach.
