CHARACTER

Name: Smeet(Sweet but with the m sound) Gold

Age: 18, born Klever 14th

Species and Gender: Human Male

Symbol:
Spoiler: show


Occupation: 2nd year Beacon student

Appearance: He is 155 cm tall and weight about 65 kg. His skin is akin to slightly dark Asians IRL, and his face constitutes of slightly small golden eyes, a small nose and a mouth just wider than one of his eye. He usually wears a red jacket, aquamarine jeans, a backpack and a red hat. His scroll is also red.
In combat, his clothes is thicker and had long sleeves. This is the same as his clothing in winter, except he just put on an warm extra jacket.

History: Smeet was born in the city of Vale, very close to the academy. In very early days of his life, he played toys and learned basic things just like any other children, with the notable part being there's no preschool education which leads to his relaxed attitude. He grew up watching students moving in and huntsman moving out of the school, but his interest in becoming a huntsman only came when he watched the Vytal festival tournament when he's 8. One player in particular he liked, which beats her opponent simply by hitting hard and fast. She didn't win due to an opponent being tricked to get ringed out, but Smeet thought if he became a huntsman he could do the same and be the one who trick others. With that in mind, he enrolled in Signal using the years between the tournament and Signal age training in running and building strength which turns out he had a talent in them too, while also learning the basics of tactics.
He did well in what he have trained for, speed, strength and tactical knowledge, but the fields he haven't, he barely hung on. His combat skill is left untouched in theses years, and he isn't exactly quick to pick it up. He can't hit a man-sized target with a majority of the pellets at 10 meters with his shotgun while maintaining anywhere close to respectable fire rate, and even the teachers jokes about how he would be used for target practice by some random evil overlord. While he can hit hard and fast in a fight, he is basically doomed if he's restricted. And he neither have a melee weapon nor any experience on them. This combined with the discovery of his semblance cemented his support role. By the end of Signal, he has further specialized in his roles and advantages and is probably a year behind on the weak ones.
He was accepted into Beacon by being lucky enough not having to strain his weakness, and is considered one of the best supports and tacticians for the year, but now he got so horribly defeated in hand to hand and melee combat he almost thought of being absent to all the lessons. He was warned that he would not be able to advance anymore if he can't either improve or find a reliable way around his weakness in the beginning of his 2nd year.


Personality: He is relaxed and mostly cheery on day to day life, and spends his time to play board games and computer games when not training. He likes to get his friend involved in whatever he's doing. He is much happier if he is seen along with his friends, but he relies on others to do most of the things. In return(he thinks), he would gladly help friends in need like giving most of his aura to a friend for his mission and not take any that day, or lending his Lien for things as expensive as a new scroll. This could usually be done to a dangerous extent like leaving him without food money, or lending his aura when there's a mission hours after his friends estimated time to return.  He doesn't dislike people holding different opinion than himself or people who he sees as rivals. What he does dislike however is sore losers (regardless of who they lost to), and he had records of immediately challenging them at the first available moment with varying degrees of victory and loss. He is a clear supporter of Faunas rights and would usually speak up for the topic, but he just wished white fang will turn back to their more peaceful side.

Aura and Semblance: His aura is red-colored. His aura is tested to be extra vulnerable to dust taking about twice the damage compared to someone of the same aura amount.
His semblance is Baton Pass. It allow Him to transfer Aura, strength and speed to one or more team members. It activates when both parties is in touch and they have agreed on what and how much to transfer and can adjust or end when they are in touch again and agrees so. It would also end when one party is unconscious, then the transferred stats, even aura as his capacity in aura is given along with, will be vanished and needs a week to recover. It lasts 12 hours and is reset whenever His weakness for dust Transferring usually takes longer than ten seconds even when he decides to give almost all of his strength, aura and speed. According to him, when trying to go past his remaining speed or strength, it feels like something is pushing against it preventing him from doing so. The semblance can also be used to provide buff to more than one person at the same time but the given amount of aura/strength/speed is conserved. The transferred aura does not suffer the weakness of his aura.

Combat Behavior: He calls himself a fast bulky physical support. Because of his semblance he often forgo battling himself and give his aura, speed and strength to his teammate and let them do the heavy working. If he has to fight himself, he will try to kite and do quick approaches and heavy punches or point blank shotgun blasts to quickly sweep down enemies. He also tends to plan before attacking based on his team, but those plans usually either leave himself open to attacks or need a guard to keep him safe, And they mostly consists of timing an attack and launching a new one when the enemies think it's done, or attacking from different angles at once, although he does well in other context too.
His raw power would be comparable to: (Very subject to change if too powerful)
  • Capable of keeping up with non-sudden burst speedster of the same year in speed and fight at that speed
  • Hit softer than dedicated hard hitters but noticeably above average
  • Wall average students and can take quite a few from low tier dedicated hard hitters
His biggest vulnerability is his lack of skill and technique. His usage of his weapon is brutally simple: Get close, blast the enemy, and make a U-turn. This is easily predictable and if the enemy keep his range, he can't reliably hit targets beyond 10 meters despite the weapon being still very effective at that range. In melee, his is also not skilled and can be forced into a situation where his strength and speed can not be used in its fullest extent. And even knowing this weakness he doesn't spend much time training in these fields, instead training in raw power and relying on speedblitzing and overpowering his opponent.  He also do not carry dust for usages other than ammo, which limits his offensive option and other utilities.

+Good Support semblance and the stats to back it up
+Fast speed
+Above average strength
+Above average aura
+Use "nasty" plots to plan attacks

-Strong, but VERY unskilled, on marksmanship, melee and hand to hand combat
-No dust usage except dust propelled bullets
-Dust is super effective against him

WEAPON

Name: Focus Blast

Primary Form: A single barrel shotgun colored in pure red. It has the barrel length of about 50 cm and is semi-automatic. He brings 10 cartridges each with 5 rounds with him in combat.

Dust Functions: Dust is used to fire the pellets. For every trigger pull 9 pellets is shot with a spread of approximately 10 cm radius for every 5 meters of traveled length. It is high powered enough to one hit kill most common, non major/alpha Grimm, and those can usually be killed with a close headshot too. For even more power shots with much more dust content is used, able to punch through armors of a boarbatusk or even a death stalker at close to point blank. This more powerful round however creates recoil that takes out about 5 percent of his aura and pushes him back about one step.

History: It is originally forged at his time at Signal and is replaced part by part during his time in Becaon until it looked like a completely new bought gun. He would rather not think about the "ship of Theseus" problem of his gun.
