Valentine - who now retracted and transformed her umbrella into their double whip form - observed the huge scorpion-like Grimm in front of them. Looking at her teammates she noticed that Luna was visibly itching to just run in at any moment. "If anyone has a plan in mind now would be the time to tell us........ Before Luna here decides to steal all the fun for herself." She added the latter one as she mischievously smiled at the wolf girl next to her.

Valentine was the next one to leave the airship. With her umbrella in hand she gently stepped on the weary ground and studied the ruins of the base camp. The view was not particularly inviting, but the fact that there were no corpses of the excavation team in sight meant that there might still be hope that they are alive. She let out a sigh of relief.
Valentine glanced over the faunus in front of her, and her other teammates as they left the Bullhead. All she really knew about them was their names, so observing them for a little longer is a smart idea to get a better feel for them.

She intently listened to what the Professor had to say. "Got it." She nodded. Valentine noticed that the wolf girl was uneasy to say the least, but since Luna decided to keep quiet she didn't press the matter further.

23 and 24 for the both of you? ^^

To both of you: What is the most annoying habit other people have?

I'd say its a mix of both. The Semblances will stay the same (at least for Shiro, Blanc's Semblance will still be fire-based but it will be different) but the main thing I'll be looking at is making the history/appearance/personality section a bit more interesting and creative, I guess. While Shiro is in relatively good shape, they still feel a bit off, personally. I can't really explain the feeling.

Valentine: "I enjoy drawing when I get the chance. It is truly wonderful to forget about your problems and let your hands do everything. It's not like I'm super good at art or anything though. It's just good for relaxing." She pauses for a second. "I suppose I also enjoy taking a stroll in parks. There is just something captivating about the eerie silence and the darkness of the park at night, where the only source of light is the occasional lamp that illuminates the gravelly road."

Me: My hobbies would be drawing and playing on the computer. I don't really have any other hobbies honestly.
I enjoy drawing, just like Valentine. I've been drawing ever since I was a kid and I attended art classes too. It's also something I am more or less good at as well, so it's a win-win.
Playing on the computer helps me escape from my problems, so if I feel stressed or depressed I just load up a game and play. Whenever I play I just concentrate on the game and forget my worries, so that really helps.
I used to attend fencing and karate classes until like a year ago though. It was fun but I got bored.

Generally speaking anything that isn't too personal is fine. ^^

Valentine is sitting in a rather comfortable looking chair and she is gently holding a cup of tea. "What I think of wolves? They can be great house pets." She slowly took a sip from the cup. "Though if I needed to choose I would get a dog instead."

I'll be hopping on the AMA train, since everybody seems to be doing it. This has been on my mind for a while now, but I always forgot about it, well... until now. Here you can ask my characters, me, or both almost anything! ^^

Okay that should be everything now. The small changes I made were:

-Increased the Aura replenishment from 5% to 10%. (Same drawbacks, purely number change.)
-Added just a little bit more to what her relationship is with the guardian. (Late parents' secretary.)
-I liked the depression idea. It's a lot less severe but still works for me. I can relate much easier as well, so shouldn't be hard to roleplay. I included that to the personality section. (Also switched up the layout of the paragraphs so it flows better but its the same personality section.)

I think everything is done.

1) Changed Valentine's parents' occupation to being the owner of an insurance company. I could have probably made it so that the criminals miraculously killed a huntsman and huntress in broad daylight, but that would be really unrealistic, so thank you for noticing that point. The only reason I made the parents be a huntsman and huntress was to give her some incentive to strive to be one as well.

2) Changes reverted to original state.

3) Removed the need to take medication. Frankly I did my research on the spinal cord injury, and I read that random twitching can be an after-effect of such injuries in areas that are affected. It does make more sense that if she completely loses the ability to control her body below her neck she wouldn't be suffering from that however.

4) This has been on my mind ever since I wrote her up. I decided to scrap the idea of having a mental illness, since frankly, I am not confident enough in my ability to do it well enough. I still think it would be interesting and fun, but I should get more experience with roleplaying in general before I attempt something so difficult.

5) I included a short one-liner that says that the government assigned a temporary guardian to her until she is 18. I might expand on this later today, but for now I don't have enough time, so this will suffice.

6) Removed ability to sustain herself through blood. Unfortunate. I wanted to stick with the vampire theme as much as possible. I realise that blood isn't easy to come by, but what I thought was possible is that the government would be able to provide her with blood. Since in RWBY a wide variety of faunus exists, there could  be more sanguivorous bat faunuses that inherited the blood drinking trait, so it would make sense that the government would have something in place to provide them with blood. (I should have written this down in the profile actually... xd)

7) Changes made to that part of the profile.

8 )
8a) Blood Clotting: I already specified that it would only work on herself, so I'll just make the part [Bold] where I said it.
8b) Blood Absorbtion: Changes made to that section as suggested. Can I buff the amount of aura restored by Blood Absorbtion by 5%, to a total of 10%?
8c) Blood Marionette: Balancing adjustments made as suggested.

9) Removed the food bit.

Thank you for the review Vision, don't worry about the delay. I'm a lot more patient normally, I just happened to be really bored with everything IRL for the past week, so that is why I might have come accross as impatient. I understand why it took so long to review Valentine, and I appreciate that you guys took the time to review my character in a way that would still allow me to play out the character how I wanted to. I am also completely fine with the changes, so no worries.

What inanimate object do you wish you could eliminate from existence?

I think the darkness of the Semblance is justified when you look at the Fall of Beacon and the Ren flashbacks. But yeah... I guess it's a rather subjective matter.

Really minor change: Changed Ruin's length from 3m to 2m. While it is indeed not ideal to use whips in close combat, a 2m whip is short enough to be of use in a close quarters fight. (Also added benefit of Ruin is that it somewhat acts as a chainsaw, so even then it should be effective enough to some degree.)

Thank you King. ^^

Spoiler: ShowHide
Shiro and Blanc are waiting for my rework, so I'm pretty sure I'll be changing things, that's why I won't be talking about them. Valentine is waiting for approval but I'm certain most things will stay the same way, so I'll talk about her instead..

Valentine's Semblance was unlocked when her parents were killed in front of her by criminals. She suffered a psychotic break when she was unable to process the death of her family members, and  it was her brain's way of protecting her sanity. To a degree. She didn't want to believe her parents were dead so she made the corpses into Marionettes with her Semblance to trick herself.

Since her Semblance has to do with blood, it also symbolises that people are able to experience pain if you think of wounds, which ironically she is unable to feel anymore.

What hobby would you get into if time and money weren’t an issue?
