Noted that she can be knocked out of her semblance form under semblance section.

Yes, Pankration is a sport in real life but it still has methods that can be applied to combat such as by ancient Greek soldiers like the Spartans. Also, in mythology it is said that Theseus used it against the Minotaur and Heracles used it to subdue the Nemean Lion. Because of this it also adds aesthetic effect to the character. She's like a ronin with some greek hero mixed in.

Added a weakness that she has below average durability. Also added a mini-weakness that she doesn't fight at full potential without Khan.

Good point. Removed the anatomy part.

Can a combatant fight if they had an engagement before the match and showed up with decreased aura?

Does a combatant have to bring their primary weapons or can they show up with anything (reasonable)?

I put up the training thread:

I changed my mind. Let's actually go with no semblance usage.

The Vale Region / Private Training (Amane vs Shoko-La 1v1 Training)
« on: June 17, 2018, 07:24:33 PM »
On a corner of Vale’s industrial district is an old, abandoned building, once a piano factory until a large section of it had burnt down in a fire a few years ago, taking the lives of a number of workers. After the incident, nobody wanted to go near the building anymore so it was left there and forgotten. However, recently the building has found use again and was purchased by one Amane Petrichor at an extremely low price. Despite seeing the occasional shifting figures in the corner of her vision or random pings on her aura detection, it was a perfect location (spacious and private) to train without disturbance.

Today, as her team and other students were training at school, Amane had her own idea to improve her combat skills. Through one of her contacts, she was able to hire the assassin Shoko-La Bitter to train with her and allow her to practice some 1v1.

Parking her motorcycle inside, Amane gets off and pulls out a gun case stuffed into her backpack. She sets it on a nearby table and opens it to reveal a P229 pistol with six loaded magazines. This is what she will be using today. She also takes out a small bundle of violets and sets them at the center of the burnt section of the building before picking up her gun and loading a magazine in, then pushing the slide back. Ahh, she loved that feeling of the heavy pull and everything clicking into place. Pointing it, Amane then starts to practice shooting at a few targets across the span of the fifty meter long building, making her way through them at a quick pace while maintaining precision to warm up, waiting for Shoko-La to arrive.

Character Creation / Akane Tozawa
« on: June 17, 2018, 04:59:08 PM »

Name: Akane Tozawa

Battle Theme: Excision & Space Laces - Rumble
Battle Mix: Excision - Lost Lands Mix 2017

Age: 23, born the 23rd of Machlud/September

Species and Gender: Human Female

Occupation: Huntress


Appearance: Akane is a Mistralian woman with fair skin, loosely curled light red hair tied to one side with a red ribbon, and blood red eyes. She usually wears a white button-up shirt with a black tie clipped to it and a casually worn rust-colored cotton blazer over. She also wears dark grey trousers, black converse sneakers, a red scarf, and an expensive watch.

-Art in progress-
Spoiler: Watch • show

History: Akane was born in a small village north of Mistral to two humble, but highly skilled professionals. Her mother was a physician with an expertise in giving checkups to huntsmen and huntresses while her father was a masseuse and acupuncturist who used aura techniques passed down through his family for generations. While they were eager for their daughter to inherit their techniques, they didn’t rush to teach her when she was little, knowing that forcing her to do something this difficult will more than likely deter her from wanting to learn in the future.

As Akane’s early years passed, she would meet many people who came to her parents’ establishment, the huntsmen and huntresses especially catching her interest. It was after she was inspired by their tales of heroism, adventure, and especially their freedom to travel the world, that she finally asked her parents to not only unlock her aura, but also enroll her in Sanctum Academy the next year when she was old enough. Her parents agreed, on the condition that she would study and inherit their techniques which she was happy to agree on.

The year before she went to Sanctum was an important time for her, because not only did she learn a great variety of aura techniques from her parents before schooling even started, she also met Yabash Khan, a child who was abused by his parents and bullied by others for his mental handicap, unusually large size, and faunus traits. Finding him bruised up in an alleyway one day, Akane brought him to her home, where her parents treated his injuries and fed him. However, they couldn’t do much about Khan’s parents due to lack of solid proof. Unable to simply stand by and do nothing though, Akane activated his aura so he can cope with their beatings easier. From that day on, Akane would always be there for him, defending him and teaching him to be strong. She also started calling him Matir Khan, a name that denotes courage and bravery instead of Yabash Khan, a name denoting defeat.

When time came for Akane to go to Sanctum, her parents also pulled a few strings and got Matir Khan in under that name too. The two, being practically inseparable, had all their classes together due to her ability to supervise and understand Matir Khan. They developed excellent synergy and teamwork throughout the years at Sanctum, but both never discovered their semblances until they went to Haven. While Matir Khan discovered his while wrestling a Beringel during the initiation of team ETKN (Extinction), Akane randomly discovered hers two weeks later while meditating during a thunderstorm. True to their name, ETKN brought an apocalypse with them onto the battlefield, with all four members capable of dealing huge amounts of crowd damage perfectly timed with each other. They were a very diverse group, with their leader Eleanor loving everyone and everything, Akane always doing whatever she wants, Matir Khan being mentally handicapped, and Nazar being a high-functioning sociopath. Despite this, Eleanor was always able to keep them together and well up until third year.

Nazar was the first to go, having been invited into a special training program with the Kingdoms to combat rogue huntsmen/huntresses at the start of the year. Akane, on the other hand, was utterly bored with school, feeling that she was more than ready and didn’t want to go through another two whole years. This went on for another half year as she continued to tutor underclassmen when eventually one of them, an ex-member of the White Fang came to her for help. His sister was taken and held hostage by the group to get him to turn himself in. He had nobody to go to, so Akane left to go help him out, wanting some self-justification to leave school. Matir Khan followed without a second thought - where Akane went, he went too.

After helping him out, she didn’t want to go back to the academy because she enjoyed the complete freedom from traveling the world and doing whatever she wanted. Completing various jobs for people all over the world and earning a name for herself, Akane ended up in Vale as Amane Petrichor’s sensei, teaching the latter aura detection along with various other things like the mentality of a veteran, staying calm under pressure, shuriken throwing, and most of all, a mindset on how to practice, train, and learn effectively. This went on for two years until Amane graduated from Signal and began going on missions.

A while later, when the Shiru attacked Vacuo, another Grimm attack happened near Mistral where Akane was. As all the huntsman were focused on the Shiru, the kingdoms didn’t know what to do until her and Matir Khan stepped in. Amane also happened to be doing business with Akane’s mother and provides them with long-range support. Together, they went from village to village fending off the Grimm attacks and slaying the Frostbite, a unique boss Grimm in the form of a Tyrannosaurus Rex with a freezing breath that woke up from a deep slumber in Northern Mistral. Their accomplishments did not go unheard of with the kingdoms and both her and Matir Khan were given huntress status while Amane disappeared off, having finished with her business.

Now, Akane still lives her life doing whatever she wants without regard to her title as huntress, but still answers call-to-arms whenever the kingdoms need it. She also occasionally gives Amane some advice and training whenever she's around.

Personality: Akane is very calm and collected yet at the same time, spunky, completely self-confident, and possesses a rebellious side. A free spirit, she does whatever she wants, goes wherever she wants to go, and isn’t afraid to break a few laws as long as it doesn’t do harm to others. Despite this, she abstains from sex and drugs except for caffeine and occasionally expensive alcohol.

She’s very well-versed in the subjects of advanced anatomy, kinesiology, and aura, having grown up inheriting all her family’s techniques and gives massages to people from time to time. Akane is also an excellent teacher, being able to spot the flaws in anyone’s fighting style and giving suggestions on how they can develop effective ways to rectify them. She has quite a few unorthodox yet highly effective teaching methods up her sleeve, being someone who doesn’t just teach people what to learn, but also how to learn and practice efficiently. While she provides excellent hospitality to her students, she never goes easy on them when training them.

Finally, Akane is someone who eats a ton of food, despite her small stature. Big, giant Matir Khan already eats a lot, so people get shocked when Akane somehow eats even more than him. She does care what she eats though, and holds meals to a high standard.

Aura and Semblance: Aura Color: Blood Red | Abilities: Strength, Shield, Blast, Detection
Semblance: Bloodstorm - Akane’s semblance allows her to shift into a particulate storm cloud made of blood that can freely zip around along any solid or liquid surface, even vertical and upside down surfaces. The cloud gathers and condenses moisture around her, using a process similar to aura healing to convert it to blood. If the moisture picked up is already blood, nothing is converted and cost is reduced.

In this form, Akane is still particulate and can be struck by attacks. She can also get knocked out of her semblance form in which the gathered blood will burst out around her. The longer she utilizes this ability, the more draining it gets, exhausting exponentially. Prolonged use also consumes nutrients from her body and will make her very hungry. As such, it is mostly used in short bursts. If she uses her semblance in midair, she will automatically gravitate towards the nearest travelable surface before being able to control where she goes.

While her semblance has a few arcs of red electricity surging through it, they don’t have any significant effect except for making hair stand up and smelling like ozone. However, Akane is able to enter supercell form, where she stays in one spot and rotates the cloud around her at high speeds until it generates powerful enough bolts of electricity. She is able to continuously spin up, collecting more blood and electricity and rotational speed before blasting it all outwards to knock back and electrocute enemies. However, due to the exponentially increasing cost of her semblance, it exhausts her quite a bit.

Dust can be used to lessen the cost or amplify various factors of Akane's semblance such as using lightning Dust to generate more lightning and electrocute enemies during travel, wind and kinetic Dust to increase speed, and water and earth Dust to increase the blood created or lessen the cost.

Spoiler: Appearance • show

Combat Behavior: In combat, while Akane is completely confident in herself and her abilities, she always respects her opponent and starts off fighting at full power. As someone who meditates frequently to develop a clear mind and higher level of control over their consciousness, she gives off an aura of tranquility, even in the midst of battle and can also perform autosuggestion, filter out unnecessary thoughts, and divert her entire conscious state into a task.

As for physical abilities, Akane is someone who specializes greatly in movement speed and damage output but is a bit lightweight and under average in terms of durability. She utilizes instantaneous bursts of strength from her aura, perfect 0-degree edge alignment, blindingly fast attack speeds, and a long nodachi blade to become a great destructive force on the battlefield. She is also able to integrate her concealed knives into her flowing movements with a high level of secrecy and sleight of hand, slipping them into unsuspecting enemies who are too focused on the big sword and reconcealing it without them knowing what they were stabbed by. Finally, Akane is highly skilled in the martial art styles of Jiu Jitsu and Pankration.

Akane's fighting style is greatly integrated with Matir Khan's, both able to output a ton of crowd-control damage and compensating for each others' weaknesses. She uses Khan to output a ton of damage, disrupt enemy movements, or to act as a shield, while Khan relies on her to follow up on his attacks or to take out faster, smarter enemies that may be flanking him. Akane is also really good at knocking enemies into Khan’s eruptions and does so automatically. However, Akane is also semi-reliant on being able to use Khan to her advantage and most of her fighting is done with him so she doesn't fight at full potential while alone.


Primary Weapon: A nodachi made of highly durable materials. Cherry blossom designs run along the flat of its 140cm blade and its handle is 40cm long with a grey cross wrap. It is carried in a sheath diagonally across Akane back, which can automatically unfold most of the protective covering and allow for easier drawing of the blade.

Dust Functions: The cherry blossom designs going along the flat of the blade are Dust channels with an open port at the center of each flower. It contains a mixture of kinetic, lightning, and air Dust that allows her to send out large ranged energy slashes through the air. If cuts aren’t enough to slay a Grimm, Akane can also activate the Dust to create a energy extension on her blade that vacuums the insides out of anything she slices through.

Concealed Carry: Akane also carries various concealed knives on herself and can throw them as shurikens.

Unless Shoko's semblance can block the armor-piercing capabilities of a spear thrust, Amane's bullets will do fine. Due to the amount of power they have, her bullets require a special non-transforming barrel to fire them so it doesn't split in half. Amane is also capable of fast reflexes (able to aim every round in a full-auto burst) so making sure the jellies don't touch her weapon is just something she has to watch out for. The factory building is located in Vale.

Go ahead and feel free to use semblance. Amane recently acquired an old factory building for private shooting practice so the training fight against Shoko-La can take place there, unless you have another idea?

Finishing her drink and setting it on a nearby collection tray then taking the hard case containing the weapon by the handle, Amane gives Prism's shoulder a gentle squeeze with her other hand. "You're fine." No matter how precise and quick the computer was, Prism is irreplaceable. Looking around, Amane says, "You see anything you want?"

The WeXpo is an underground event held annually at the residence of Sheikh Faheem al-Yousuf in the Kingdom of Mistral where a number of individual grey-market weapons manufacturers showed off their latest creations hoping to sell them to various clients ranging from White Fang insurgents and private militaries to trusted Huntsmen and collectors. As some of these factions were enemies to each other, there was a strict code to WeXpo in that all-out-war was not allowed. While some people did occasionally ‘demonstrate’ a seller’s wares on others (to the seller’s delight at drawing the attention of prospective buyers), organized attacks would be faced with the Sheikh’s own security measures.

Having been invited for being Iris’s agent last year in helping the Sheikh cure his son of a rare disease, Amane was currently attending the event. Having spent all day browsing through the smorgasbord of weaponry ranging from small-but-deadly laser pens to armored vehicles, Amane was currently at one of the booths in the garden area, sipping an earl grey vodka martini and inspecting a portable anti-material sniper turret while listening to the merchant going over the details.

“This auto-rotating base here can connect to your scroll, allowing for remote control of the turret. Included in the fire-control system is a laser range-finder here, infrared camera right here, and various wind-reading devices so that you simply need to designate the target and it’ll perform the proper calculations for you. It can also be set to automatically fire at targets that enter its three kilometer radius, with filters for either Grimm, personnel, or both.”

“That’s useful. And how does it fare against hacking?”

“Its security has been thoroughly tested by our experts with many added layers of protection.”

Amane gives an approving nod.

“Would you like to give it a go?” The seller asks, handing a scroll to Amane and gesturing with his hand at a few targets across a kilometer long field.

Taking it, Amane looks at the scroll and taps the Activate button. The turret emits a whirring sound and comes to life with a click as the large semi-automatic rifle raised its barrel towards the targets. Tapping on one, it locks on and fires a shot with a loud bang, putting a hole through the center. Amane gives another approving nod and highlights a group of targets as the turret locks on and takes out each one in quick succession. Handing the scroll back, she said, “I’ll take it. You prefer cash or crypto?”

“Whichever you prefer.”

“Alright, transferring now.” She pulls out her non-transparent scroll and taps a few things while looking at the price tag before putting it back in her pocket.

The merchant checks his scroll to verify and then says, “Thank you for your business ma’am.” He shakes hands with Amane and packs the weapon up.

Putting her Desert Eagle into safety and holstering it while slinging her rifle over her shoulder, Amane watches Smokey decimate the targets. "Why do you need to practice that in a shooting range?" she asks him curiously. She turns to Prism, "Oh and I do have agree with Smokey in regards to the fact that while I know you fight perfectly fine with those heels, normal shoes will always be more effective during combat."

“Yeah,” she said to Kisha, when suddenly the droid’s legs gave way. Silently catching it and lowering it to the floor, Amane glances at Akel as they interacted then opened the door to the room Gray was in

Being one to shoot first and talk later, or in this case throw, Amane sends one of her HE throwing stars through the crack of the opening door flying towards the raider’s chest the instant she saw her, which was timed to explode within proximity whether it hit or not. She followed through by quick-drawing her Desert Eagle and firing two shots in rapid succession. The first was placed at the raiders upper left leg, the second, using the recoil from the first shot to snap the line of fire up, went towards her left hip.

Amane was at a nearby booth listening to some heavy dubstep while taking a few sips from her vodka martini. Iris had wanted to come to the festival to see some retired idol she liked perform with Amane as a plus one. Recalling that the ex-idol is currently attending Beacon, Amane is curious about what her fellow student is like on stage. Seeing that the event was about to start, she buys a CD from the dubstep artist and puts it in her bag. Finishing up her drink and setting it at where the glasses go, she makes her way over to where the people were gathering and stays at the back of the crowd.
