Brond Osilgrin
« on: September 11, 2016, 04:31:22 PM »
CHARACTER

Name: Brond Osilgrin

Age: 22, born Salue 13, 57 AC

Species and Gender: Male Kodiak Brown Bear Faunis

Symbol: Brondís robust silhouette surrounded by fire 

Occupation: Hunter

Appearance: Brond is 7'0" and weighs 400lbs which is almost all muscle. He has broad shoulders and huge limbs which dwarf those of most people. Brond has longish, brown hair which hides a pair of bear ears, and his eyes are a dull red.  His face is a bit hairier than a normal personís due to his faunis heritage, but it is always shaven down to a stubble. He has a square jaw and thick neck, and he normally wears a large, white t-shirt with black cargo shorts. In combat he will add two gauntlets (these extend to his knuckles and have studs on each knuckle), two greaves, and a chest plate, all of which have a layer of Kevlar underneath a steel exterior. He almost always carries his huge blade in a sheath on his back.

History: Brond was born as the 3rd of 4 children, all boys. From the get-go his family was a boisterous and loud collection of people in a relatively small house in Mistral. His parents were not wealthy, but they made enough to keep food on the table and they taught their children well in the way of morals. For a while Brond fit right in, but as he got older he began to tower over the rest of his family. Brond hadnít decided `what to do with his life, but he had won just about every youth wrestling and boxing tournament that would accept his weight class. His parents were a bit disappointed that he wasnít out in the world making a living with his obvious physical strength despite him only being 14 at the time, and at one of their dinners they mentioned their opinions in undertones. The only phrase Brond heard clearly was ďcontribute to societyĒ, and thatís when it hit him. He immediately pooled the money he had gained from the tournaments and signed up for the Sanctum combat school. After all, his parents had always taught him to help others in whatever he did, and what better way to help people than by using his strength to kill grimm.

Brondís time at Sanctum started off on a bit of a low note with Brond being completely dumbfounded by the academic work he was being assigned. This predicament didnít last too long though as he soon made friends with some students in the library who offered to help him with the work. He also created his weapon, a large buster sword that opened to reveal a dual function mortar and flamethrower. Brondís first year went well, but during the second year an arrogant transfer student began to form a gang within the school. The students in the pseudo-gang would harass and bully the other students, but managed to stay under the teachersí radar. Brond was a bit oblivious to these goings-on because the bullies werenít brave enough to mess with him, but they got careless and picked on some of Brondís friends. This lasted a single day, after which Brond caught the bullies red-handed. It was one of the first times Brond had felt truly angry, and one unlocked semblance, four burned hallways, and three hospitalized students later, Brond was feeling a lot better. Of course, Sanctum was going to expell him, but with a proper explanation from Brond and the student observers, he was able to continue his education at Sanctum under the agreement that if anything similar happened again, he would have to work off the debt for repairs with physical labor. This led into a period where many of the students feared him and shunned him, and his cheerful demeanor was suffering. As the school's administrative board noticed the change in the attitudes of both Brond and the students, they requested that he be transferred to Beacon in Vale for his own sake. His friends were sad to see him go, but they were happy to know that he would be able to start over. He has successfully stayed in contact with them since then through letters (often simplistic and simply worded, but definitely not lacking in heart) and technology (whatever Remnantís equivalents of texting, calling, and Skype are).

One of the first things Brond did when he reached Signal was visit the forge and remove the flamethrower component from his weapon since he figured that with his new semblance he wouldnít need it. Brond continued his training at Signal, but his reputation was a bit more negative there and since he wasnít as comfortable in the new environment he didnít end up making many friends. This did result in Brondís grades being considerably lower than his first two years, and he barely passed in his final year. Once Brond had finished his training at Signal, he decided to move on to Beacon since it would be too much trouble to go back to Mistral and he had heard good things about the school during his years of training. Brond came close to failing the written portion of the entrance exam, but his exceptional, if not destructive, performance on the sparring portion earned him a spot in the school.

The mandatory team system at Beacon proved very helpful as Brond was forced into close proximity with three other students with whom he soon became fast friends. Around halfway through his second year, while on a mission, Brond was disarmed in combat while his semblance was active. He had underestimated the rate at which his semblanceís power had increased and the temperature completely destroyed the mortar function in his buster blade and caused an explosion that almost ended him. After that unfortunate accident, and as soon as Brond was released from the infirmary, he reforged his weapon as a simple blade with the most effective heat-resistant metals he could find.

From then on, Brond focused his training on his semblance since it was his biggest offensive and defensive combat asset. Throughout the years, Brondís team has kept his grades above failing, and during his 3rd year he reforged his weapon a third time to make it bigger and heavier. Over the summer break between his 3rd and 4th years, Brond visited his family and friends in Mistral. Brond's 4th year of schooling was quite uneventful, save for an encounter with an individual known as Enz Wraith. Long story short, Brond doesn't like Enz very much. At the end of his fourth year, Brond graduated from Beacon and became a hunter. He mostly works on assignments outside of the four kingdoms since he tends to destroy everything around him when he fights.

Personality: Brond is, above all, very cheerful, and few things can really dampen his mood. Of course this has its exceptions and Brond can be solemn when the situation calls for it. He will avoid unnecessary violence, but he has a zero-tolerance policy for bullies (usually expressed by a hearty laugh and a fist in the offenderís face) and definitely enjoys a good battle. Brond is not very good with book-smarts (math, science, history, etc.), but he enjoys reading a good story whenever a librarian will allow him near their shelves. Brond is a reliable friend and a shoulder to lean on when times are tough, and he values his friends above anything else. If, however, something affects Brond enough to break his happy demeanor (this is a very extreme circumstance, the death of a friend for example), the armies of all the kingdoms of Remnant would be hard pressed to stop him from finding the person responsible and destroying them. Brond usually doesnít accumulate many friends because his size can be more than a bit intimidating, but those that are around him a lot soon come to know and likely befriend the cheerful giant under the flames. Brond is, despite all these qualities, not all that intelligent, and he has a smaller vocabulary than most. Also, Brond can often irritate more sophisticated people because his manners are lacking and he rarely changes his way of addressing people, be it a superior or a friend, from a very casual demeanor.

Aura and Semblance: Brondís aura is a dull red, like his eyes. His semblance is called Ignite. When activated, his semblance causes Brond and anything he is holding/wearing to become immune to heat-based effects and then light on fire. The fire can burn at three different tiers of power. Tier 1 has a 1% aura per minute cost with an 8 minute time limit and a 30 second cool down and burns at around 400 degrees Fahrenheit with a reddish/yellow color. Tier 2 has a 5% aura per minute cost and a 2 minute time limit with a 2.5 minute cool down and burns at around 1400 degrees Fahrenheit with a yellow/blue flame. Tier 3 has a 7% aura per minute cost and a 1 minute time limit with a 6 minute cool down and burns at around 2200 degrees Fahrenheit with a blue/white flame. Also, whenever the semblance is activated or Brond moves from one tier of power to another, a wave of force pushes everything (that can be moved within reason, so if your character really wanted to, he/she can stick a blade or something into the ground and resist the blast) outside of the damage radius for the heat emitted. In addition to this, when Brond swings his sword while his semblance is active, it will fling out a line of flames 20 feet from the tip of the blade in the direction of the swing at the same temperature of his semblance with the flames decreasing in heat the further they get from the tip of the blade. Brond's newest technique with the semblance allows him to become a living flamethrower. For 2% aura per second, Brond can fire a beam of flames that has a maximum range of about 180 feet and a heat that matches the tier of burn near to the point of origin and weakening as it moves further out. Brond can fire this beam of flames from either his hands or his mouth. 

Combat Behavior: Brondís fighting style is better likened to a natural disaster than the skills his fellow students possess. He is far from being a tactician, preferring to run in and hit stuff rather than form a strategy tailored to a specific opponent, but despite this it has worked quite well for him in the past. Brond typically attacks with large, sweeping slashes from The Immolation Cleaver, and true to its name, the blade is rarely unaccompanied by Brondís semblance. He normally wields The Immolation Cleaver in one hand, preferring to keep the other free for punching, grabbing, and using his flamethrower. For dealing with a group of enemies or to deliver a particularly devastating series of blows, Brond can spin around while holding his blade at armís length with both hands, turning himself into a burning tornado of death.
Brond is extremely strong, and it is evidenced by his one-handed wielding of a weapon that most could hardly carry. His semblance is also difficult to deal with for melee fighters because the heat of even Tier 2 keeps most melee fighters on the ropes while Tier 3 is a devastating offensive advantage in melee combat. Brond is also very resilient and few attacks carry enough power to truly hurt him. The combined weight of his blade and his strength make Brondís attacks almost impossible to parry for normal-sized weapons, and he has broken quite a few blades because their owners didnít understand this.
Brondís biggest weakness, however, is long range weapons, because he has no way to block save his blade (which cannot normally be moved into place fast enough) or his armor. Another problem is Brondís complete lack of speed and dexterity, which is clear when he reaches his maximum speed and is still moving at what most would call a slow jog. Brond is also lacking in the range department as his only ranged weapon has a maximum range of 180 feet and drains his aura very quickly. Also, due to the nature of Brondís semblance, he is quite destructive and can endanger his allies or the property of others with his combat style.

WEAPON

Name: The Immolation Cleaver

Primary Form: The primary, and only, form of The Immolation Cleaver is a 8 foot long buster blade (6.5 feet of blade and 1.5 feet of handle) made from a tungsten alloy that reduces weight and reinforces the tungsten while keeping the melting point of the blade well above Brondís maximum 2000 degree burn. Despite its reduced weight, though, the blade still weighs a hefty 113lbs.

Secondary Form:N/A

Tertiary Form: N/A

Dust Functions: N/A

History: Brondís sword is a unique weapon in the world of Remnant because it used to have more functions. The gradual increase of power that Brondís semblance went through over the years continually forced him to remove parts and mechanisms that would be damaged by the heat. Though it is a bit unwieldy to keep on his person at all times, Brond chooses to do so because, in his own words, "I'll always be ready to kill grimm... and it won't fit in my locker".
