I know weapons have to be added via the sheet, but what about small gadgets, say like a wrist mounted grappling hook

Walking between classes, still in awe over everything in the outside world, Blair noticed a student practicing off in the courtyard. She walked over to him and watched from a distance. He looked strange, talking to himself as he shadowboxed. She understood the need to keep limber and in fit form but she did not understand why he needed to talk to some false foe. Grimm would not talk back, nor would they stop an attack to hear a Hunter speak in witty remarks. Removing her helmet, she walked closer to hi. "Hello, might I ask you why you are talking while you are fighting? Do Grimm really feel intimidated against words like that? She placed her helmet on the ground and smiled. "I'm Lady Blair Valka. It is an honor to meet you." She bowed.

My rwby character have mostly been based around a theme or, in the case of Lily, a single image. When I made Merlettta, I had this idea of a solitary weaponsmith with a troubled past. I used that with some inspiration from horror and stealth games to create a smoke based hundreds with attachment issues. As I started to use her in threads I started to flesh her out more and more, kind of a character growth based around who she was at the core. For Blair, I wanted to do a more regal person but still wanted her to be down to earth and slightly inexperienced with the modem world. I always found fish out of water stories fasinating, it was using that and some Norse myth and culture that I centered around a character who was the daughter of someone important but knew little of the world outside her villiage. And with my current experiment, while still not fully accepted due to minor oversights in my part, I was thinking of someone who relies on nothing but tech. I think we all try to start from some basis but we end up in different places

Lily smiled at her old friend. "Hey. I hope you're ready. They're waiting for us. Let's get in the limo and get going." She opened the door for him and waiting for him to get . Once they were both on board the limo, the driver took them an hour away to the festival. Once they arrived, Lily made her way past her agent and to the dressing room she was given to get ready for her opening number. She changed out of her usual outfit into a more elegant dress for the opening. She placed her flower headset on and walked to the stage. The MC saw her and began the festivities.

"Ladies and Gentlemen, boys and girls, I welcome you all to this year's Remnant Music Festival. You are all in for a treat this year. We have, exclusively from Beacon Academy, the one you all paid for, the one, the only Shining Blossom. Please welcome her to the stage. She's agreed to come out of retirement for this festival only, so make her feel welcome. Ms. Blossom, please if you would, grace us with your music." The MC seemed to get the crowd going well enough that her nerves of performing again left. She walked onto the stage and took a bow. She looked around to see a band that was prepped with her set list for the weekend. She took a deep breath and began to sing
Dwelling in the silence, fading into white
Life so psychedelic, living a dream, we’ve nothing to fear
I’ve disowned the darkness, and that deadly dance
I’ve had enough – but can’t wake up



I don’t wanna lose my voice
I don’t wanna fade away
So they can see the truth, aim to repaint these days
Take aim, and hit the mark – that white, hypnotic spark
Now’s the time to rise one,



Feel it under your flesh, programed in your blood
One day we will devour, all of the pain and bitter remorse
Our chains of dependence sow themselves in deep
We gotta help each other

I don’t wanna lose my way
I don’t wanna walk that line
Always giving in too soon, breaking down when you could shine
Return to white once more – Return and be restored
Now’s the time to rise one,


No one knows right from wrong
No one knows dark from light
Add a layer more of paint; until the world’s set right
Go on, with all your might – But none can taint this white
It’ll stay forever pure

Name: Alexander Noire
Spoiler: show
Aka Tarot

Age: 26
Species and Gender: Human Male
Symbol: The Tarot symbol for the Magician arcana
Occupation:Freelance Hacker
Appearance:Alex stand at an average 5'8 with a mop of jet black hair. When he is not on a mission, he tends to where a black and red uniform and a pair of glasses, even though he is not visually impaired. These glass act as a heads up display to keep track of different sources while in regular clothing. While is in on a mission, or meeting with a client, he tends to wear a black and gray suit with a long trench coat cut in three parts near the tail. While in this outfit, he wears a mask to display his information.
History:Having grownup in Atlas, Alexander was exposed to the advances in technology that Atlas would bring, although having a father who was a systems technician for several large tech companies in Atlas helped. While his father would typically work at his lab on different project, from time to time, Alex would tag along to his father's work. Over the years, Alex's father began to become slightly fearful of who he was working for. Eventually, he was deemed a criminal as plans for a networking scheme involving different companies employees accounts being leaked for everyone. Alex, knowing his father would never do this, tried to defend his father, but no one believed the student. After his father's ruling, Alex took it upon himself to clear his father's name.

This is also when he took up a small obsession with tarot reading. Due to his obsession with clearing his father and the  tarot readings, his studies began to take a slump. That is all except for any class involving any form of information gathering and stealth. He eventually decided to drop out to focus more on freeing his father. He could not free his father from the charges he was given unfortunately.

This led him to resent the kingdoms and he decided to use his skills to benefit himself as well as, how he would put it, removing the kingdoms influence on the people and allowing them to have the freedom to everything. realized his loss and  picked up this ideal. He worked from behind the scenes, helping other people get what the needed for free, eventually though, he needed funds to continue doing what he was doing. Because of this, he started to work with other organizations that were not so lawful, eventually taking up the name Tarot as it expressed his idea of an untold ever changing future.

Through his means of business, he  managed to learn what he needed to create everything he would eventually be using. He now freelances work to anyone who will pay him for his services, usually leading to him backstabbing them if they choose to double cross him, usually leading to the employer be arrested and all traces of his action gone.

Personality: While he is never one to let his pride go bolstered Alex keeps a surprisingly level head under the veneer of self absorbed self-imposed holier then thou attitude, unless he is meeting a client for the first time. If it is a meeting about a job, he acts much more professional and even polite. After the first meeting, he drops his facade of professionalism and shows his true colors. Due to him not wanting his pride to be damage, he usually tends to work alone, not wanting to trust anyone on a job he could handle himself.

Aura and Semblance:His aura is colored a dark red. His semblance allows him to create a small perception altering AOE that is around the size of an average office building. Anyone with within the initial cast will not really “see” Alex or anyone he is with. The semblance does not actually alter the mind but rather it just ignore that he is there. Anyone who enters after the semblance has been activated or any technology within are not affected. In addition, due to the massive amount of strain using the semblance costs, if Alex or anyone within his group were to make any form of aggressive or quick movement, his semblance would cancel out. Once activated, unless disabled via an aggressive action, lasts for 5-10 minutes, depending on the area needed to be covered.

Combat Behavior:Alex tends to stay out of combat whenever possible, relying more on wit and words to try to deescalate. When a battle does happen, he usually tends to duck behind any for of cover and fire a small pistol from behind it while trying to flee and protect himself. While this is his normal method for combat, he does tend to use his remote controlled sniper as an intimidation factor, usually "relying" on the power of his enemies seeming like he has numbers. If both methods fail, he will use any other means around him to flee, even if he has anyone with him or not.

Primary Form: Just a simple silenced pistol that can carry 18 shots
Dust Functions: It can fire standard Dust rounds
History: He managed to acquire this pistol from one of his first missions.
Name: Angel
Primary Form: A remote operated collapsible Sniper Rifle able to be operated from a small concealed device within his pocket. It is equipped with a standard clip of 24 rounds.
Dust Functions: It can fire standard Dust rounds
History: He needed a way to protect himself from a distance without relying on others.

As Liliana Blossom was leaving her classes for the day, she received a phone call from a number she knew all too well. It was her old manager. She had been trying to ignore him for the past couple weeks. She sighed and answered the call. "Lily, baby, how are ya? Listen, I know you're retired and all, but how would you like to do one thing for me? A couple of my other clients are in a music festival and they would love to have you be a headliner, preforming through out the days, and also judging a contest for new bands. What do ya think? Just think about. Hell, I'll even through in some free tickets for you to give out to people you know. Sleep on it and give me a call. Talk to ya soon." He hung up before she could even speak. She thought it over and looked at the numbers on her scroll, which for someone of her caliber was actually low. Eventually, after contacting some of those numbers, she called her manager back. He agreed to what she wanted and sent the tickets and even arranged a limo to take them to the festival. As she was waiting for the others, she went over various set lists and became zoned into her music.

After a couple years being off the road and no longer activly producing and performing, Liliana Blossom is approached by her former manager to headline and perform one final time at a concert series that also involves a band competition. Not quite sure if she should go, a group of her friends gather with her to help support her. However, unbeknownst to them, something is about to go terribly wrong.

Please leave a character here. I'll close off the posts after 5 other people join.
