Serin had reached his limit with this guy causing him to reach a mental cross road. While he could try the path of diplomacy which was the preferred option in most states of mind this assholes words towards his teams mates and friends had Serin seeing red. He hated this, he wanted to just reach out and punch him and end it already but he did not want to cause a scene right now, in the middle of these people and much more than that he didn't want to be caught by the few security guards roaming the area. That said it seemed the crowd had already begun feeling out the atmosphere and were all slightly backed away or looking on intently while trying not to make it too obvious that they were drinking in the drama that was unfolding right before them.

When the bully had reached the end of yet another vocal barrage Serin had already made up his mind, or rather by the end his anger and frustration had boiled over to the point where the choice was made for him. Taking a deep breath Serin now took a second to plan out an escape route and once satisfied with a path he quietly tried to convince himself once more not to carry this out.

"This isn't going to end well......but screw it" Serin muttered before simultaneously increasing his hold on the bully as tightly as he could and sucker punching him in the gut with his prosthetic. Once the fist had fully completed its arch he shoved him back and began booking it out of the landing area as quickly as he could shout to the rest of the team,

The grin on Prism's face grows, turning a cute shade of pink at Jocelyn's words of praise, but the lopsided smile she wears makes it clear Prism's not going to stop her. At the last part however, Prism snorts. "The human race is amazing indeed, but don't forget-" There's a brief beat as Prism's wings rustle, making their presence known. "I'm not even that. Coming from an orphaned faunus, it's ridiculously lucky." Notably, this is the first time Prism's admitted she's orphaned - but she doesn't seem bothered by it.

"I have a couple scholarships backing me up, the big one this 'Royale Scholarship' a former hunter here at Beacon set up for those who couldn't attend otherwise. Point is I got enough to cover boarding, and that's all that really matters." Prism explains, but there's another quirk to her lips at Jocelyn's last words. "And don't worry - I'm anticipating it."

Verde barely turned around when Serin grabbed his shoulder, not even stopping his incessant flexing.  And after receiving the verbal beat down of the century from Serin ("Smooth," a barely audible sound escaped Smokey's lips.), Verde did nothing but chuckle. 

"What's the matter, you want a piece of this, too?  Can't say I blame ya, I have that effect on people," he said, not even remotely bothered by Serin's interference.  It wasn't until Billy started whispering in his ear that his expression slowly changed from an arrogant smirk to slight confusion, then outright anger as he was released from Billy's grip, mouthing something and touching his nose in the process.  But then Verde looked back at Smokey, and that arrogant smirk was quickly back on his face.

"Oh, I get it.  I never knew you were into furries, Shorty. Hey, I ain't judgin'.  Everyone has their ways of getting off, you just need a good bitch," he said, licking his lips, "literally, I mean."

He turned his attention to Mikado, who had up until now avoided any of Verde's verbal molestation, and said, "And you, tall, dark, and edgelord, what's your deal, huh?  You his other fix?"

If anyone watched carefully, they'd see that after every comment Verde made, no matter who it was directed at, he glanced over at Smokey, trying to watch his reaction.  It was as if he was waiting for something, like he knew something was going to happen.

Smokey, to his credit, hadn't done anything yet other than watch, but his nerves were definitely starting to fray.  He didn't want to give Verde the satisfaction of a reaction, but if the jerk continued to harass his team, Smokey was almost definitely gonna smack him one.

Once more Jocelyn could only shake her head in pure admiration. "If only everyone in the world was like you--determination, spirit, kindness and caring all in one cute package." There's a little bit of a blush as Jocelyn realises what she just said, but she lets it show since every single word she just said was genuine. "It's not morbid, honest--amazing what the human race can do based purely on motivation and dreams."

"Wasn't aware Beacon did scholarships?" she asks, her head tilting sideways in curiosity. "Oh, and you've definitely beaten all the odds--now it'll be smoother sailing, I promise."

It just wasn't the same.

Even going so far as to clear a large circle of land within the Emerald Forest with his own hands, sending the trees he chopped down to a lumberjack to craft into benches for students to sit on simply didn't replace the true feeling of proper fighting. Yet here he stood, watching two students go at each other as their Aura depleted bit by bit. It wasn't that they weren't skilled--quite the contrary--rather being compelled as a teacher to hold PvP sessions simply did not sit well with him.

As one student beat the other to a pulp before the electronic board he had brought with him started beeping to confirm Aura depletion, the professor sighed and tapped his scroll to roll the next duo of fighters. A similar sequence of events also appeared on the screen, mimicking a roulette with the student's mugshots rolling by, until...

"Would students Prism Skylark and Rook Ryder take the stage and continue the day's entertainment." There's a noticeable hint of sarcasm and snark to the Hunter's voice, as if somewhat bored by the proceedings.

I'm currently in a creative writing exercise of just pumping out as many unique semblance as I can in my Google docs so my current process is taking a semblance and figuring out how it would fit a character, what it says about their personality, etc. and then from that, figure out combat behavior, weapons, maybe history. For a recent example...

I've got a semblance that essentially boils down to them being able to create aura shades of people who pass away in their presence, basically pseudo-necromancy. Now, the obvious connection is necromancy=bad guy, but what does this say about his personality? How did this semblance get awakened? Well, maybe his ability to temporarily "revive" the dead is born from him not being able to let go of loss or guilt, he has an extremely hard time letting go, he'd do acything to see someone he loved one more time, maybe. Okay, if that's what he's like, how might this have awakened? A pretty obvious and not bad idea is that it was awakened when he watched a loved one die, but who? Parents or childhood friends are good but a tad cliché, aren't they? Why not take it to a smaller, more realistic scope, maybe he was a student at Beacon, maybe his semblance has been unlocked for a while but there's never been a chance for it to actually show itself. Maybe he was on his first team mission, or even one further down the road when they don't have a teacher supervising, where one of his teammates who he looked up to, respected, maybe even loved but never knew about his feelings gets fatally wounded and passes away and, in a moment of panic, his semblance activates.

Now skip ahead, how does this paint his world view, not only watching someone he loved die but then seeing them come back and then disappear again since his semblance isn't permenant? Would he feel a sense of closure, would he feel the world is cruel for forcing him to watched those around him die only to see them again and watch them leave a second time, or would he see this as a power that he can use to amass power and become strong? Or, maybe, all three. Of course he feels that closure, seeing the person he loved once more and being able to confess everything even if they can't *really* hear him or respond because it's not really them. He feels the world is cruel despite this because if anyone dies around him, even if he doesn't activate his semblance, he can still feel the aura inside of him, alien and lost and, depending on his belief, maybe he thinks he's keeping them from getting into heaven or hell. He feels this is a way to amass power, anyone he feels is a "bad guy" who dies around him give him the chance to use their power for good or at least his version of it. Three things that can contradict each other but still exist in the same person because they're only human and even if they try to be one thing, the other thoughts will still always be in the back of his head.

So what would his weapon be like? If he turns into someone that kills those around him to gain their power it would be something quick and clean. Easy kills, minimal damage to the body and soul. If he turns into someone who simply takes from those around him, he could focus on anti-grimm weapons and let his shades do his human fighting for him.

Once you figure out one thing you can usually take some part of that thing and extrapolate it to figure out the rest of the character naturally.
