Ribeiro Ispecs
« on: January 09, 2017, 11:55:32 PM »
CHARACTER

Name: Ribeiro Ispecs (pronounced Ri-Bayro)

Age: 20

Species and Gender: Female Human

Symbol:  A vertical kitchen knife and pistol with a line going through them. Similar to the zodiac symbol of Pisces

Occupation: 4th year Beacon student Huntress/ Freelance artist

Appearance: Standing 5'5 tall and weighing roughly 110 lbs she has a thin and scrawny body size. She has curly light blue hair that extends to around her elbows, and her expression is at rest a flat emotionless gaze. She wears a very simple blue one piece skirt that reaches to her knees, and an over sized red and blue flannel jacket where the sleeves extend past her hands. She wears a pair of ordinary sandals, a leather belt that carries her weapon on her waist, and an ordinary book bag hangs on her shoulder.
She also carries around with her, her pet tarantula named Peix in her book bag. This tarantula crawls all over Ribeiro at random times often freaking people out. Peix was the strongest creature Ribeiro and her sister could find when they would often make things fight each other.

History:

Born in an ordinary family in Vale, growing up Ribeiro had a mixed child-hood growing up. She had a mother whom loved her as any mother would, and a step father who wouldn't acknowledge her existence. The reason for this is her mother had an affair with another man while still married with her husband. Born with blue hair, a trait neither the mother nor the father carried, her step father accused her of cheating to which the mother had no choice but to admit. Even before Ribeiro was born, her step father was an unfairly angry man, he would regularly blame his wife for things out of their control or spontaneously break things or yell for seemingly no reason. An environment that lead to the Mother entering the comfort of a different man. To her step father, Ribeiro's existence was a very symbol of his wife's betrayal, which fuels his anger just by looking at her blue hair. However Ribeiro's childhood was not all horrible because she had an older sister who protected her.
     
     Technically half-siblings with the same mother and different fathers, Ribeiro's Half-sister still loved her. Sister adored Ribeiro's blue hair, opposing her own bright red hair, she was a very tomboyish individual and loved to run around and play outdoors with Ribeiro. Her favorite activities included burning various insects with a magnifying glass, making bugs fight each other, or bullying animals in general with her fire based semblance. Ribeiro watching Sister have fun regularly abusing creatures adopts this trait and copy's her mannerisms. Ribeiro herself however, much preferred to draw. The most common thing she drew was her Mother, Sister, and Herself together, her favorite color being red.
     One evening when Ribeiro and Sister were out playing a heavy downfall of rain pours on the two, this event triggers Ribeiro's previously unknown semblance. Ribeiro feeling immense power mistook this for being sick and immediately returned home with Sister. Upon returning home the two siblings come across their Father in another fit of rage directed towards Mother, this time however Father was armed with a gun. Scared Ribeiro froze up on the spot, while Sister fearing for her mother's safety rushed in between her Mother and Father. Within the mad flurry of motion and chaos, when all was calm and finished, Sister lay on the ground in a pool of blood. Ribeiro struck with a pain that felt like she was the one who was shot, felt an emotion she had never felt in her life. Rage. Sister was her very life, and to have that taken away she couldn't forgive her step Father who meant nothing to her. So she picked up a kitchen knife from the house and unconsciously used her new speed gained from her semblance to maul her Father to death.
     
     Stab neck blood, 'so pretty', Skewer chest blood, 'blood is so red' Slice arm blood, 'I like red' Pierce leg blood 'so much' Pierce chest blood 'such a pretty color' stab stab stab.

     Somewhere among the rage, Ribeiro had found a fascination with the red color of blood. Red had been her favorite color before but the specific color of blood red intrigued her even more, maybe it was the color of life? Witnessing the entire scene Ribeiro's Mother was in complete shock, while horrified at Ribeiro for slaughtering her Father she did not feel the slightest bit of grief for his death nor was she angered at Ribeiro for what she had done, just how she had done it. No it was the death of Sister that both Mother and Ribeiro were most stricken over. When investigated by authorities, the incident was concluded as case of self-defense, if a bit extreme self-defense but self-defense nonetheless, as Sister's death and two witnesses were able to prove.

     Some time after Sister's funeral Ribeiro explains to her mother that she wants to become a Huntress, to become strong so she could protect her from anyone else. Is what she told her but in her mind she wanted to see blood again, to see the pretty red color of life, but she wasn't going to do it in anyway that reminded her of her Father. If she's going to see blood she's gonna have to do it for a good reason. While she understood that Grimm don't bleed, she had hoped to be sent on missions that would have her target wanted criminals, or bandits, human targets.
     Her Mother not convinced at all for her reason to become a huntress after what she saw, still agreed to help her anyway believing this might be her only path open for Ribeiro, supporting her last immediate family she helped anyway she could have enrolling her in Signal and subsequently Beacon.

     Through her years at Signal academy she was known as 'the artist'. Always drawing on her notepad she keeps in her book bag, whether it was the surrounding forest, other people, or whatever she felt like she was always seen drawing. Physically Ribeiro was not very strong, but she was fast and even faster when her semblance was triggered. Taking this into account Ribeiro opted to make as light of a weapon as possible, while not as fancy as her peers it was simple and did exactly what she wants, a kitchen knife and pistol.

     Entering Beacon she felt neither fear or excitement, in fact over the years Ribeiro became very emotionless. It was in part, the memory of her sister still passing and in another part she regularly spaced out thinking of artistic things that could enhance her goal. Her dream was to one day draw something that she could be eternally proud of, something that would live on far beyond after she had died, to create something that would last as long as history. Through her lessons she believed by traveling on missions and experiencing new things she could find exactly what she's missing in her art. To be as daring as her sister was. With this in mind she told herself she should open up to strangers more and make more friends, however spending her entire time as a loner in Signal and her only friend being her sister she completely lacked any social skills to do so.
     While she wanted to make friends the only way she could is if others would initiate first. Luckily this wasn't a problem as she had made easy friends with her team as they were all fascinated by her drawing skills. Her third year in Beacon though a tragedy occurred. Tasked with guarding a far away village, Ribeiro's team became under attack by a tribe of bandits, exactly what she had wanted. Without any water at hand she was unable to use her semblance, though this didn't mean she was entirely useless, the attracted Grimm proved extremely dangerous and ended up entirely eviscerating one of Ribeiro's teammates.
      Ribeiro who was standing next to her fallen comrade became drenched in her friends blood, thus releasing her semblance, entirely delighted by the prospect of seeing blood again and given free reign to do as she pleased with the bandits she slaughtered them all at her own desires. Make no mistake, when Ribeiro strikes to see blood it is not out of malice or ill intent, but purely her own fascination and joy to see blood. She is not maniacal, nor is she insane,but she is just happy to see blood.
     Following this incident her remaining teammates abandoned her, fearing Ribeiro might attack them someday. Even though she would never attack her friends she respected their wishes and parted ways, though she felt more betrayed then she had ever felt in her life, she felt this lesson showed her something invaluable. How people's perspective can change quickly by seeing something they don't agree with, or scared of. Though that left her to finish one more year in Beacon and find a team that she hoped she could hide her interest in blood and subsequently leave Vale and see what other creations the world has to show.

TLDR; Her stepfather kills her sister on accident and she kills her stepfather in revenge. She is deeply fascinated by blood but not violence.


Personality: Introverted, while she wants to make friends she's entirely incapable of doing so. Generally just stays mute unless spoken to, though it's not too difficult to start a conversation with her as most people go for asking her about her drawings. This, she is fully aware of so when there is somebody she is interested in talking to she pulls out her notepad and starts drawing something in the hopes the person starts the conversation, though this doesn't always work, much to her annoyance. She generally only speaks up around people she is used to and consider her friends. When she does speak she casually speaks in a generally friendly and gentle manner, in an attempt to hide her more macabre interests. She also unintentionally scares those around her by casually talking about dark or depressing topics in a completely ordinary tone of voice. While its sometimes difficult to tell, Ribeiro is at heart ,kind and compassionate, she regularly donates her blood to the local hospital with good intent(and so she can look at all the pretty bags of blood). Aside from drawing she also loves to swim.
Ribeiro will also randomly swat bugs or catch any small creature within her sight using her speed and feed them to her pet tarantula. She'll regularly do this mid conversation or extremely casually often alarming anyone who witnesses this behavior.
Something that completely changes her behavior and angers her is anyone yelling out of rage or meaningless physical violence. While she is not bothered by most things other people are, she can't stand arguments regardless of whether they are directed at her or not. Thus she will make every effort to stop said altercation and bring peace to the situation, ironically in an extremely angry manner. In the cases violence is the only answer she will happily oblige and fight.

Aura and Semblance: Ribeiro's aura color is Blue
Her semblance is called Flow

This ability is only triggered when she is wet and gives her immense speed in combat. Though unless it is raining or she can constantly make herself wet again her speed won't last for very long as she will dry up rather quick from her speed. While how quick shes dries up is entirely dependent on her environment, if she's in a desert she shouldn't really be wasting water unless she needs to and it won't last long anyway, or if she's in the snow she wouldn't want to get wet for threat of hypothermia. On average it takes about 3 minutes for her to dry up when in combat. When it is raining and she does not have to worry about drying up she can last 10 minutes before this exhausts her. 
This ability stems from her calm and peaceful nature of water combined with the potentially lethal and great danger water can become.

Combat Behavior: If possible Ribeiro opts to begin her combat stealth fully and uses her semblance to float from hiding place to hiding place, not making a single sound with foot steps. Preferring to assassinate targets quickly and with a single blow. Though in most cases this isn't feasible, and she is more of a rogue hit-and run kind of fighter. For the most part avoiding a direct one-on-one confrontation as she's not very good at being up close and personal without her semblance. Primarily she fires off shots with her weapon in pistol form and switches different forms of dust when the situation calls for it. In this state she is more of a support role attacker, striking only when possible.
     
     Now when her semblance is triggered and she becomes wet or it is raining she completely changes her fighting style. With her speed increased drastically she dashes straight into her enemies and slashes at any openings she finds with her weapon in knife form. She takes into consideration where the weak areas of her enemies are when she fought them in her weakened state. She forces any enemy to expect close range melee attacks for a while and surprises them with the occasional pistol attack.

WEAPON

Name: Redrum

Primary Form: a simple pistol form mirroring that of a glock, with a blade underneath the barrel

Secondary Form: the pistol straightens out and takes the form of a kitchen knife

Tertiary Form: The knife form is the default form, placed in a sheathe when not in use

Dust Functions: Ribeiro carries 4 basic forms of dust ammo in her book bag, only uses them when appropriate.

Red- Her bullets and knife take on incendiary properties and can leave a blazing trail of fire behind her when her semblance is active, similar to oil. Using this only lasts for a very short amount of time and increases the speed at which she dries up. For obvious reasons this can't be used during rain.
White- Her bullets are able to create blocks of ice immobilizing targets for a short time. She can leave a trail of ice behind her when her semblance is active.
Blue- Her bullets and knife take on electric properties for enemies weak against this attribute. Using this makes her even faster when her semblance is active but causes some damage over time to her aura.
Yellow - Her bullets become explosive, effective against armored enemies. With her semblance she is able to propel herself even further using the force of the explosion.

History: Seemingly taking no interest in any heavy weapons, Ribeiro took the two lightest weapons in existence with a ranged and melee capacity and made something simple.

I'd like to apologize for the long wait on this character. I'll go ahead and get the review started:

History:
Only one issue here: what did the police or authorities think about the murder of her step-sister and step-father? A little detail here would help.

Semblance:
This is where I'm going to camp on primarily:

1. After looking it over, this semblance is technically two semblances: moving through air and moving through/on water. You will have to pick one or the other. You can possibly make it into one by saying she can swim through air and can move faster if she's wet, but even that's kind of pushing it as it brings the question of why that's possible? I would suggest you altogether just remove the portions about her walking on water and swimming crazy fast through water and try and work with making this into a kind of speed semblance instead.
2. I would like to know the duration of her semblance when using it.
3. I would like to know how many times she can use it at once before there's a strain or it exhausts her.

Weapon:
I would like to see more detail about the dust bullets and the effects of each dust type.

That should cover it for me.

some slight change here due to the changed semblance

Personality:Something that completely changes her behavior and angers her is anyone yelling out of rage or meaningless physical violence. While she is not bothered by most things other people are, she can't stand arguments regardless of whether they are directed at her or not. Thus she will make every effort to stop said altercation and bring peace to the situation, ironically in an extremely angry manner. In the cases violence is the only answer she will happily oblige and fight.

I didn't think that small detail would be integral for the profile but here you go
History:

Red had been her favorite color before but the specific color of blood red intrigued her even more, maybe it was the color of life?

When investigated by authorities, the incident was concluded as case of self-defense, if a bit extreme self-defense but self-defense nonetheless, as Sister's death and two witnesses were able to prove.

I had a feeling this would get flagged, entirely removed the part about floating around
