Mae Tulimanu
« on: May 20, 2017, 12:22:00 AM »
CHARACTER

Name: Mae Tulimanu

Age: 18 (25th of Arashi)

Species and Gender: Female Raven Faunus

Symbol: A Raven with it's wings outstretched.

Occupation: 1st year student at Beacon Academy

Appearance: Mae stands at 5'2" and weighs a healthy 120 pounds, a good portion of which coming from muscle as she has a toned athletic build. She also has short black hair that extends a little bit past her ears. The Faunus has pale, freckled skin and has a modest bust and somewhat curvy hips.

The first year, being a Faunus and all has various features to tell her apart from a crowd. Firstly would be that her pupils and iris' are enlarged and her sclera is black and her eye color (as well as her aura color) is this. Second would be the fact that the girl has multiple black feathers growing on her arms, from her shoulder down towards the wrist. Mae takes great pride in these feathers and keeps them well cleaned and groomed. When off duty/school, Mae wears a grey, long sleeve shirt, black jeans, and blue sneakers.

When she's on a mission, the girl will wear a black leather coat with her symbol engraved on the back over a grey and blue bodysuit which covers her from her neck to her feet (the bodysuit has built-in feet support). To cover her face, the first year wears a hooded mask stylized after a Nevermore, similar in look to masks White Fang officers would wear but, instead of red Grimm-like details, Mae stylized it to look more friendly and heroic, going for blue markings based off of ones her family would use to mark paths in their woodland territory. The Faunus also wears a black tactical belt and harness, on which she keeps 3 magazines of ammo for her crossbow rifle, one per each dust type, with the regular ammo already loaded into the weapon. She also keeps the contents of a basic first aid kit on her belt, harness, and jacket, just in case one of her allies or someone needs help.

History:
Spoiler: ShowHide
Mae was born to a human father and a Raven Faunus mother in a small cottage deep in the forest near Kuchinashi. Mae's mother worked as a huntress, taking job requests from the local town and protecting any merchants passing through. Mae's father worked as a trapper, and fur trader, selling what pelts he had skinned to the general store in town, while also keeping the meat he had acquired. On top of being rigorously taught the general education courses like math, English, and science by her mother, Mae was also taught how to hunt and defend herself from a very young age by her parents (mostly by her mom), who let her tag along when they were hunting smaller Ursas, Boarbatusks, and Beowolfs who had strayed too far from their pack, but still threatened their home. Mae's mother made frequent trips to town in search of textbooks and workbooks for the sake of Mae's education. Mae loved reading and writing, as it gave her something else to besides go out with her parents or garden, and would study for hours on end every day. Around the time Mae built her weapon--albeit a very rudimentary prototype version of it--her parents let her go out hunting for small animals and Grimm. She would spend hours wandering the forest and admiring the beauty of nature, although she would tend to get lost and into trouble while doing this.

As time went on in the forest, the young Raven Faunus got older and was helping her father hunt on a regular basis for big game, and big Grimm. Mae's mother continued to go on missions for the local town, but because of her age, she couldn't complete as many contracts as she used to. To offset this, Mae decided to look for a job as an assistant to a blacksmith, thinking the experience would help become a better weapon designer. When she looked at the board, there were no openings for such a position, but she did find an offering for an engineer's assistant. Desperate for work, she walked to the engineer's house to check in as their new assistant. When she knocked on the door, she expected a stereotypical old, and cranky man. She was surprised to see a middle-aged man--somewhere in his forties--open the door. He wore very casual attire, like glasses, a button-up shirt, pants, and sandals. He was kind and welcoming, if not a little snobbish. He introduced himself as Bashir Cooper, an Atlas engineer who wanted a quiet life near the great rural areas of Mistral. Bashir wanted to pursue his dream of being a custom weapon designer, and to do that, he needed someone to help him test his new inventions--which of course were prototypes and very unstable, possibly life-threatening. Mae agreed to test the weapons, but only on the sole condition that Bashir would help her on her journey towards being a huntress, whether that be helping her study or helping her make weapons and gear. Of course, Mae never told her parents about testing life-threating inventions.

Once Mae had turned 18, her parents were a little shocked to find out that she wanted to go Beacon Academy, as Mae's mother and other relatives had all gone to Haven. Mae explained to her parents that she wanted a change of scenery from the wide expanses of the forest, and wanted to experience what Vale had to offer. After a few days of consideration, Mae's mother gave her full support to her daughter's success. With the admission date a couple of months away, Mae trained and studied with her mother and Bashir more so than ever before. When Mae's mother was on a mission, Mae would go over to Bashir's workshop to study and test weapons. When the day came to apply to Beacon, Mae passed all of the admission tests with little difficulty, scoring relatively high considering her home-schooled education. She was scheduled to leave Mistral in two weeks, and in that time, she said her goodbyes to her old friends who were going to attend Haven Academy. Before boarding the airship, Mae said her goodbyes to her parents, who promised that Mae would always have a home in Mistral. Bashir gave an almost tearful goodbye and offered to send her some custom equipment if she ever needed it. She thanked him and her parents for everything before she boarded the airship to Beacon.

Personality: Despite her lack of formal education, Mae loves it when someone other than her parents can teach her about something other than hunting. She works very hard when it comes to schoolwork, studying and reading whenever she isn't hanging out with friends or on a mission. Mae doesn't tend to talk a lot, even when she's with friends and professors, nodding and shaking her head in place of words. The girl isn't exactly anti-social, she just doesn't have a lot to say most of the time. This can lead to Mae's friends taking the girl's words as well founded if she ever has to speak. Being a Faunus herself, Mae is a huge advocate of Faunus rights, sometimes going to non-violent protests. She even considered joining The White Fang at a young age, which resulted in her getting scolded by her mother. Despite being quiet, Mae is very kind and compassionate, not just to allies, but to enemies as well, performing first aid on those who need it. Mae's hobbies include taking hikes through the forest, reading, gardening, and cooking.

Semblance: Stealth Feathers -- The Raven Faunus can create feathers out of aura, a total of six. These feathers help Mae sneak around, each one suppressing her personal sound, with all six muting any sound she could make, a reload or her feet crushing some dried leaves making no sound at all. The first year can give other people feathers as well, usually placing them on a person or throwing them like darts into people's clothing. By giving others feathers, it will help suppress their sound at the cost of Mae's.

Combat Behavior: Due to the nature of her weapon and semblance, Mae likes to use her heightened Faunus agility to stay in the shadows and harass her enemies from afar with her variety of crossbow bolts. If the enemy gets too close, however, Mae will use her claws to defend herself--albeit, not very effective due to her low physical strength--until her allies arrive to give her back up. If Mae sees an ally in danger, she will advance towards them while putting suppressing fire on the enemy they are fighting. Because of her blind, caring behavior, she can leave herself wide open without even noticing it. Mae is especially vulnerable after using her semblance for a long time, as she will be incredibly exhausted. Mae will often focus in on one target and forget that there are other enemies around her, which usually leads to her being caught off guard, even when she could've prevented it.

WEAPONS

Name: Leto's Wrath

Primary Form: A blue and silver orange semi-automatic sniper rifle that shoots crossbow bolts. It has a hybrid scope, allowing the user to engage targets at medium to long range without a huge loss in accuracy. The magazine is a long and rectangular with a slit at the bottom for the bolts to go through. Each magazine holds 15 bolts--which can be coated with different kinds of dust for any situation.

Dust Functions: The crossbow bolts can be coated with dust to add a little extra punch to the weapon. Mae carries around 3 dust coated bolt canisters. The main elements she uses are Ice (to slow down attackers that get too close), Fire (to shred lightly armored targets), and Lightning (to hurt opponents using metal armor or robots).

Mae's hobbies include taking hikes through the forest, reading, gardening, and cooking.

Semblance: Wind Gale -- Mae can launch herself up into the air by channeling her aura into her legs, letting out a gust of wind by jumping. This ability is only used to dodge or to get a better vantage point on the enemy. Mae can only use this ability 2 times in a row before she becomes exhausted. Once Mae starts to descend, she will fall like a normal person would, and must divert her aura into her legs to negate the fall damage.

Combat Behavior: Due to the nature of her weapon, Mae likes to use her heightened Faunus agility to stay in the shadows and harass her enemies from afar with her variety of crossbow bolts. If the enemy gets too close, however, Mae will use her hunting knife to defend herself--albeit, not very effectively due to her low physical strength--until her allies arrive to give her back up.

CHARACTER

Name: Mae Tulimanu

Age: 18 (25th of Arashi)

Species and Gender: Female Hawk Faunus

Symbol: A Hawk with it's wings outstretched.

Occupation: 1st year student at Beacon Academy

Appearance: (Little bare bones, sorry) Mae stands at 5'2", weighs 120 lbs., and has a toned, athletic build. She has short black hair which she keeps away from her forehead. She does this to make room for a few dark orange feathers that grow straight up from the rim of her forehead. Her pupils and iris' in her eyes are enlarged and her sclera is black and her eye color is orange gold. Her eyes of that of a hawk, so naturally she can see things clearly from over a mile away. She has paleish, freckled skin. She also has a modest bust and somewhat curvy hips. When off duty/school, Mae wears a grey, long sleeve shirt, black jeans, and orange sneakers. When she's on a mission, Mae wears a light brown leather coat with wings engraved on the back over a white and dark orange body suit which covers her from her neck to her feet (the body suit has built in feet support). Mae also wears a black utility belt, on which she keeps 3 magazines of ammo for her weapon, one per each dust type, with the regular ammo already loaded. She also keeps the contents of a basic first aid kit on her belt, separated into different pouches around the magazines of her weapon.

History:

Spoiler: ShowHide
Mae was born to a human father and a Faunus mother (who is also a hawk Faunus) in a small cottage deep in the forest near Kuchinashi. Mae's mother worked as a huntress, taking job requests from the local town and protecting any merchants passing through. Mae's father worked as a trapper, and fur trader, selling what pelts he had skinned to the general store in town, while also keeping the meat he had acquired. On top of being rigorously taught the general education courses like math, English, and science by her mother, Mae was also taught how to hunt and defend herself from a very young age by her parents (mostly by her mom), who let her tag along when they were hunting smaller Ursas, Boarbatusks, and Beowolfs who had strayed too far from their pack, but still threatened their home. Mae's mother made frequent trips to town in search of textbooks and workbooks for the sake of Mae's education. Mae loved reading and writing, as it gave her something else to besides go out with her parents or garden, and would study for hours on end every day. Around the time Mae built her weapon--albeit a prototype version of it--her parents let her go out hunting for small animals and Grimm. She would spend hours wandering the forest and admiring the beauty of nature, although she would tend to get lost and into trouble while doing this.

Time went on in the forest. Mae got older and was helping her father hunt on a regular basis for big game, and big Grimm. Mae's mother continued to go on missions for the local town, but because of her age, she couldn't complete as many contracts as she used to. To offset this, Mae decided to look for a job as an assistant to a blacksmith. When she looked at the board, there were no openings for such a position, but she did find an offering for an engineer's assistant. Desperate for work, she walked to the engineer's house to check in as their new assistant. When she knocked on the door, she expected an old, cranky old man. She was surprised to see a middle aged man--somewhere in his forties--open the door. He wore glasses, a button-up shirt, pants, and sandals. He was kind and welcoming, if not a little snobbish. He introduced himself as Bashir Cooper, an Atlas engineer who wanted a quiet life near the great rural areas of Mistral. Bashir wanted to pursue his dream of being a custom weapon designer, and to do that, he needed someone to help him test his new inventions--which of course were prototypes and very unstable, possibly life threatening. Mae agreed to test the weapons, but only on the sole condition that Bashir would help her on her journey towards being a huntress, whether that be studying or helping her make weapons and gear.

Once Mae had turned 18, her parents were a little shocked to find out that she wanted to go Beacon Academy, as Mae's mother had gone to Haven. Mae explained to her parents that she wanted a change of scenery from the wide expanses of the forest, and wanted to experience what Vale had to offer. After a few days of consideration, Mae's mother gave her full support to her daughter's success. With the admission date a couple moths away, Mae trained and studied with her mother more so than ever before. When Mae's mother was on a mission, Mae would go over to Bashir's workshop to study and test weapons. When the day came to apply to Beacon, Mae passed all of the admission tests with little difficulties, not scoring super high, but high enough for her to be content with. She was scheduled to leave Mistral in two weeks, and in that time, she said her goodbyes to her old friends who were going to attend Haven Academy. Before boarding the airship, Mae said her goodbyes to her parents, who promised that Mae would always have a home in Mistral. Bashir gave an almost tearful goodbye and offered to send her some custom equipment if she ever needed it. She thanked him and her parents, and boarded the airship to Beacon.


Personality: Mae is a caring, if not quiet person. Despite her lack of formal education, Mae loves it when someone other than her parents can teach her about something other than hunting. She works very hard when it comes to schoolwork, studying and reading whenever she isn't hanging out with friends or on a mission. Mae tends to talk a lot when she's with friends and professors, who sometimes try to sneak away from her ramblings about things that seem so minuscule, like how many feathers she shed over the past week, or how many different species of  butterfly she saw on a hike. Being a Faunus herself, Mae is a huge advocate of Faunus rights, sometimes going to non-violent protests. She even considered joining The White Fang at one time, which resulted in her getting scolded by her mother. Despite being quiet, Mae acts very motherly to her friends, not just by being kind and compassionate, but by also scolding and encouraging them. Mae's hobbies include taking hikes through the forest, reading, gardening, and cooking.

Semblance: Wind Gale -- Mae can launch herself up into the air by channeling her aura into her legs, letting out a gust of wind by jumping. This ability is only used to dodge or to get a better vantage point on the enemy. Mae can only use this ability 2 times in a row before she becomes exhausted. Once Mae starts to descend, she will fall like a normal person would, and must divert her aura into her legs to negate the fall damage.

Combat Behavior: Due to the nature of her weapon, Mae likes to use her heightened Faunus agility to stay in the shadows and harass her enemies from afar with her variety of crossbow bolts. If the enemy gets too close, however, Mae will use her hunting knife to defend herself--albeit, not very effectively due to her low physical strength--until her allies arrive to give her back up. If Mae sees an ally in danger, she will advance towards them while putting suppressing fire on the enemy they are fighting. Because of her blind, caring behavior, she can leave herself wide open without even noticing it. Mae is especially vulnerable after using her semblance more than 2 times, as she will be incredibly exhausted. Mae will often focus in on one target and forget that there are other enemies around her, which usually leads to her being caught off guard, even when she could've prevented it.

WEAPONS

Name: Leto's Wrath

Primary Form: A black and golden orange semi-automatic crossbow with a hybrid scope, allowing the user to engage targets at medium to long range without a huge loss in accuracy. The magazine is a cylinder with a slit at the top for the bolts to go through. Each canister holds 25 bolts--which can be coated with different kinds of dust for any situation.

Dust Functions: The crossbow bolts can be coated with dust to add a little extra punch to the weapon. Mae carries around 3 dust coated bolt canisters. The main elements she uses are Ice (to slow down attackers that get too close), Fire (to shred lightly targets), and Lightning (to hurt opponents using metal armor).

History: When Mae was allowed to hunt, her parents helped her create a somewhat rudimentary crossbow. Mae would continue to find ways to upgrade this crossbow with the help of Bashir before going to Beacon.


Name: Hunter's Crux

Primary Form: A tanto with a silver blade and an orange and white hilt.

History: With the help of Bashir, Mae created a small hunting blade that could easily skin the pelt off any animal, much less a human.[/spoiler]
