A shield with two hands shaking in the middleOccupation:
First Year Huntress-in-Training of Atlas Academy.Appearance:
Aegis stands at a rather regular height of 5’10”, her build is clearly defined with slightly broader shoulders since that is what her fighting style caters to. Her emerald green eyes and grey hair wavy hair, normally done in a low chignon (naturally white but dyed black which turned it grey) give off a certain look of professionalism that would normally be seen with graduated huntresses of Atlas. She always has a collar on with a silver chain and silver cross on the end for design choice.
Aegis sticks to a more formal type of clothing with a bit of a twist, a light blue formal suit shirt complete with a two-tone white and grey vest, only the left sleeve exists and there is no right sleeve and it ends just before her shoulder, with an elastic strap to help keep it in place sewn into the end of the right side. Wearing a black doubled lined belt which forms into a single piece with a large buckle. She wears tight ish white pants with formal looking shoes but act more like hiking boots. Lastly she also has a large gold bangle
Aegis likes to dress with a mixture of practicability and refinement, sticking to long pants, vests and formal type wear, while it isn’t all that she will wear it should be noted that this is the clothing that she is most commonly seen in and also most comfortable with wearing.History:
Aegis was born into to working class citizens of Atlas, fer father working as a bartender serving the pompously rich of Atlas. While her mother worked as a security officer, relatively peaceful jobs for them with the odd tussle every now and then depending on the day/night. Their jobs would mostly allow for one to be at work while the other looked after the kid, sometimes they did have to hire a babysitter but, those occasions were very rare but they did happen. The babysitter was actually a huntress, one who had graduated recently and did babysitting in between jobs. She would tell Aegis of the adventures she went in, some mediocre and some filled with her struggle against odds, she often spoke fondly of her team when she was in Atlas. The stories gave her inspiration for her childish mind and she wanted to be just like her: a brave, strong warrior who would protect the good and brave the forces of evil.
So that was what she was set on. After a talk with her parents and initially being dismissed of it as ‘just a phase‘. However, when the huntress/babysitter also talked to then when Aegis was present, they were slightly more convinced. They said it would be fine as long as she didn’t go against all odds. So she was sent to Atlas with the huntress (her name is Cindy). She underwent the same basic teachings as others within the beginning years of her huntress training. However when it came time to craft her weapon she had no idea, so after consulting Cindy she had the idea of a shield, the base was formed and Cindy had given her a large kinetic dust crystal to say congratulations and added it to her shield. Aegis had it added and only ever adjusted the shield when she grew enough to justify it. Eventually she made it into the second half of her Atlas academy and passed the exams to get her through. Now the real adventure begins,Personality:
Aegis is a very stubborn person, not refusing to budge when giving her opinion, this also goes into her fighting how she will stand her ground unless the situation is completely hopeless. Despite her stubbornness her intentions are quite good and she is a great person to go to when someone needs anything, from someone to talk to, to help with anything even if she isn’t very good, she’ll try her damnedest to help. She is a very casual person under normal circumstances and is always displays that type of aura that says “Just ask and I’ll help”.
Another thing to note is that she is seemingly incapable of negative emotions, always with a small smile and carrying a positive attitude, even still smiling well into a fight which may look a bit weird for a smiling girl to be bashing grimm with her shield. She doesn’t have any negative experiences in life so she could be seen as a bit of a greenhorn to those that have had more interesting younger years, something which she does try to avoid getting into conversation because they simply seem to act tougher because of their background.
She also does have a bit of a quirk about her: She is quite obsessed with maid outfits, she doesn’t like to wear them herself per say, but she does relish the opportunity to see girls wearing said uniforms. Usually bringing out a very analytical side of her as she examines the outfit from top to bottom.Aura and Semblance:
Aegis’ aura is more effective at blocking blows than most, due to her very nature she is able to withstand blows of a much higher power than most would be able to and with less aura being taken away.
Will of the Shield Hero - Aegis’ semblance allows for the forming of a large barrier of 3m radius in a sphere form. Can take many small hits or a singular large attack. None can attack out or in and she can focus it in a single direction to stack up the defense. Also it should be noted that it will completely block the first heavy attack, no matter if it were a semblance boosted attack from Savas or an Atlesian Paladin punch. But she does feel the force behind the attack so she will normally be sent back flying.Combat Behavior:
Aegis is a very defensive fighter, never being first to engage her enemy and sticking to counter attacking her enemy, while she is fast she doesn’t use her speed, sticking to a solid stance rather than getting hit while moving. She employs the use of martial arts and really only serves as her real form of attacking. Her normally defensive style means that she can get surrounded and will struggle with dealing damage, even if surrounded she is able to hold her own against many opponents or even higher skilled opponents as long as she doesn’t go on the offensive. She is very hard to push and knocking her off her feet is really the only solution to breaking her defense.
However her stubbornness can be a problem, facing odds that she won't be able to win. Since she fights defensively she is reliant on her enemy being the one to make the moves. She can be surrounded and analyzed since almost exclusively plays with countering which allows for enemies to gain the upper hand. She mostly relies on having a team to be the offense while she focuses on keeping them safe.WEAPONName:
Dawn GuardianPrimary Form:
Dawn is based off a heater shield the basic shape is seen but it is more straight line and adjust rather than a regular curve, in the centre is has a solid dust crystal with a circular piece of glass protecting it from damage, small holes can be seen on the edges of the shield and a sharpened edge can be seen on the bottom section of the shield. On the inside it has a circular disc with two straps and a solid handle, the circular disc can move the direction that the shield is facing while not compromising the position of the wielder’s arm. It bears no offensive abilities besides the sharpened edge on the bottom.Dust Functions:
The large Dust crystal in the middle of the shield is a solid piece of kinetic dust, letting the crystal imbue the shield with kinetic energy to release more force: shield bashing her opposition and even adding force when using the bladed edge are what come to mind. it increases whatever she needs it to by a tremendous amount to increase her chances for survival.History:
Built out of Aegis’ protective nature, designed out of the fact that she would assist rather than harm. A perfect idea that was supported by Cindy.
