Semblance Discovery!
« on: March 29, 2018, 01:38:55 AM »
Through a combination of sleep deprivation and curiosity I've come to ponder: how are most character's semblances most commonly discovered? Was it a traumatic event and unlocked through stress? A goal they managed to achieve after working long and hard for it? Or was it a literal physical event? For example, and in my character's cases:

Prism: Seeing your father eaten alive in front of you is quite a stress-inducing situation, and caused for the little gal's windy powers to kick in full force and send her flying.

Jima: A bump to the head knocked her senses loose, literally.

"I can't tell you specifics. But for me it happened when I was trying to hurt someone. While I was making one of my mistakes."

"Well. It was the day I had just learned that my brother had died. I could feel so many emotions washing over me. It was just like watching my parents die and everything kind of just exploded out into my semblance and hit the teacher that told me."

"It sort of just happened while I was training. Some guy was sneaking up on me and I just kind of knew he was there and reacted. Scared him pretty good too."

Lyra was more or less under house arrest throughout her childhood.  Apart from reading, playing with toys, and practicing musical instruments, she had to learn to entertain herself within her own mind.  Her parents had her semblance unlocked, since having an active semblance, even if not being proficient with it, was the the thing to do for her family.  At first, Lyra's semblance didn't quite manifest itself, but that's because she didn't realize that in addition to using her own aura, she had to draw aura from another source in order to use her semblance.  When one of her family's servants watching over her injured herself, Lyra instinctively felt the aura available to her, if only she would reach out and take it, so to speak.  Ever since then, Lyra spent the majority of her time practicing how to use to use her semblance, at rare times even tormenting her maids, forcing them to provide secondary sources of aura for her semblance to manipulate.

Leona Got her semblance by tossing leaves in the air. She coated one with her aura and it just kept going higher and higher up. Then she did some experimenting with it to see how it would work with other things. Everyone was surprised when she tried her semblance with dust for the first time. (It was inside and it tore a hole through the ceiling.)

Billy got her semblance through her dad 'training her' which was when he would get her to focus until she would faint. He was lucky that his semblance actually was hereditarted by her and she didn't accidentally get fire burning powers or somethign more destructive.
