Super-interested. I'll edit an OC I had made for a fanfic-verse and get him on this post!

  • Name: Pius Ashen-Nobel
  • Gender: Male
  • Age: Almost 18
  • Race: Human
  • Appearance: Pius is a slightly taller fellow compared to most other characters in the RWBY-verse, standing at 5'11" with brown hair and ash-gray eyes. He still has a burn scar on his side from the fiery car crash that killed his parents. Oftentimes Pius will be seen wearing his reading glasses and gray longcoat with a black waistcoat over his white long-sleeved, button-up shirt, light gray pants, and dark gray dress shoes. Even when in uniform at Beacon Academy, Pius insists on wearing his glasses. In either outfit, Pius is keeping all of his weaponry in his chestplate's suitcase form when not in combat.
  • Weapon Name: Dies Irae Mark IV, soon to be replaced with Mark V. This is the set of Powered Armor Pius has constructed in his quest to become a Huntsman. This arsenal consists of a pair of metal gauntlets, a pair of metal boots, a helmet, and a chestplate. All of these parts can be augmented with Dust at Pius' choosing for different purposes. The chestplate carries the jet boosters that Pius uses to fly on its back. It also transforms into a suitcase that the other items can join with as well. His gauntlets each contain a Blade Below the Shoulder mounted on the forearm and a Grappling-Hook Pistol mounted with the barrel at the wrist. His boots contain jet boosters along the calf and under the heel.
    • Due to his circumstances, Pius can afford more Dust than most people, except for Weiss Schnee herself, so he has lots of different Dust mixtures to use in combat. To organize them, Pius uses a color coding system for all the Dust mixtures that he uses. His armor pieces also glow at Tron Lines placed along the armor to indicate to any allies what Dust he is using.
    • Color Coding for Dies Irae: This color-coding system is based on the RGB color wheel, including black, white, and, of course, gray.
      • Red: Sonics
      • Orange: Fire
      • Yellow: Lightning
      • Chartreuse: Nature
      • Green: Earth
      • Spring: Vitality
      • Cyan: Wind
      • Azure: Ice
      • Blue: Water
      • Violet: Impact
      • Magenta: Corrosion
      • Rose: Illusion
      • White: Light
      • Gray: Metal
      • Black: Gravity
  • Semblance: Resemblance. When his eyes glow completely gray, he can see the Aura of other beings through other surfaces as well as the voids left by the Grimm. When other beings use their Semblance, Pius can analyze their Aura and emulate it on a lesser level than the original user when they're nearby. The resemblance fades if the original user is too far away, and Pius may only copy one Semblance at a time.
  • Personality: Overall, Pius is a quiet, angry guy. His thoughts never fully leave the complete extermination of all Grimm everywhere as vengeance for his parents' death, which makes him a little difficult to deal with socially. However, he genuinely cares for his adoptive family, so he isn't completely cut off from others as one might suspect. He's very analytical and critical of others, and can be slow to trust while he's tearing down potential allies. He doesn't hesitate to assert himself as leader or in the right, which also drives people away. But when his mind isn't on the death of his parents or the Grimm, Pius can be a really nice guy.
  • Bio: Pius was just a regular kid with regular parents. He had absolutely no ambition to become a Hunter, though his parents did tell him it was his duty to help protect the world. His mother was a veteran Huntress, who regaled him with stories from her past. One day while his parents were driving home from school, a random Grimm snuck into town and caused Pius' family car to slam into another car, knocking their car onto its side. His father was killed by the impact, and his mother could do little from where she was pinned. In the end, she accepted her death and kept telling her son that things would turn out alright, even as he was being pulled from the car. She would not join him; the car went up in flames soon afterwards.

He was seven when he witnessed this.

With nowhere to go, it seemed that Pius would be thrown into the orphanage system as another traumatized, scarred child without a family. But then the Nobels (pronounced as "noble"), friends of Pius' parents and owners of the Gold Dust Company (largest subsidiary to Schnee Dust Company), came in and adopted the boy as their oldest child. Pius would not be an only child as well; the Nobels also adopted three other children who would become Pius' adoptive siblings: Innocent, Gregory, and Sarah.

The four of them had an acceptable family life, learning and training at Signal Academy while Pius built up his hatred of the Grimm, swearing to exterminate them with his hands and feet, inspiring the design of his weaponry.

I'm a bit iffy on the Semblance, actually.

How about, nerf it so it's always weaker than the original?

Okay here's hoping this will do:

  • Name: Medus Blanc
  • Gender: Male
  • Age: 17
  • Race: Human
  • Appearance:
    • Lean musculature though tending more towards the skinny side of lean. He's of average height, has facial features that could best be described as “sharp”. His eyes are a light shade of green and he has long hair he dyed white because.....well because he felt like it mostly. Tends to wear motorcycle leathers though he has been known to switch them out for denim and a simple t-shirt
  • Weapons and Equipment:
    • Nightshaker- A large black and white colored two-handed battleaxe with a pump-action shotgun built into the hand. Also has guitar strings going down one side. When folded up it simply looks like a guitar.
  • Semblance:
    • Good Vibrations- Medus' semblances allows him to reverberate sounds along his aura to amplify them. His main use of this is to use guitar notes played off of Nightshaker as actual attacks. Naturally this drains power and a fair amount of focus (Needs to make sure he's using the right sound of course) so he doesn't get to use it as often as he would like.
  • Personality: Medus acts an awful lot like a rock star. That is to say he's arrogant, charismatic, has problems with authority, as well as being more than a little greedy. However somewhere in his heart he does care for his fellow man, not that he'd admit it. He also has some level of respect for those who show themselves to be competent
  • Bio: Medus loved rock and roll and it's culture growing up (I'm assuming there is a rock and roll culture since rock is shown to exist in RWBY). Since he wasn't half bad with an instrument it seemed like he would be on his way to stardom before too long.However as he grew he still felt that he wasn't happy with where it looked like his life was going. So motivated by the simple kindness of a generous classmate he decided he would go into a career of helping people. However since the police and fire departments didn't really fit his style he decided to go to combat school so he could become a huntsman.

  • Name: Belle Babineaux
  • Gender: Female
  • Age: 17
  • Race: Human
  • Appearance: Bloop
  • Weapons and Equipment:
    • Gemini:Twin pistols that can transform into short swords, or combine into a sniper rifle or, a bastard sword.
    • Francis: A small surveillance robot, in the shape of a spider that she carries with her.
  • Semblance: Limited control over machinery. She can make it either malfunction or operate better than usual. This wears out both the machine and herself though.
  • Personality: She's a bit overconfident in her own abilities prompting her to come off as smug. In truth though she's a caring person who always tries to help those around her. Help in this case meaning berate them until they feel bad about their shortcomings. Those who manage to brave the storm attitude will find a freind that's loyal to very end.
  • Bio:Belle is the daughter of an robotic engineer who taught her everything she knows about machines in the hopes that she would one day succeed him. Unfortunately for him, though Belle became well versed in the robotic engineering trade she was more interested in the life of a huntress. So when she was old enough she was sent off to combat school and from there Beacon Academy.

Sweet! That makes me the Lucky Girl Number multiple-of-four! waii

  • Name: Lucas Krigsvart Krig and Svart are Norwegian words for "War" and "Black", respectively. Or so Google Translate says...
  • Gender: Male
  • Age: 18
  • Race: Human
  • Appearance: Rather tall and lean, but not in an un-athletic way. Pale skin (almost white, in fact). Black hair that’s rather longish – down to a bit past his shoulder. Clouded blue eyes, and scars across his face (from the incident mentioned in Bio). His outfits are somewhat utilitarian – pants, shirt, jacket, and blindfold.
  • Weapons and Equipment: Summerjeger “Summer Hunter” in Norwegian, if we can trust Google Translate on that front – a black metal bow. The type of arrows he uses with Summerjeger has compartments in the stick part that is filled with azure dust, which can freeze enemies. In addition, if he bends Sumerjeger a certain way, two blades pop out of the ends of the hard part of the bow, which he can use in close combat.
  • Semblance: Perception. Using this Semblance, he can sense any living thing within his surroundings, as well as whether they are human, animal, plant or Grimm. However, he can’t tell anything more specific than that. Also, in an area with an abundance of moving auras (like, say, Beacon), he can easily get disoriented. The semblance also only works up to about 30 meters – any farther, and he starts to drain his soul.
  • Personality: Silent for the most part, and quiet when he does talk. He can get snarky, though, when he’s frustrated. He claims he’s nowhere near as prideful as he was before the incident, but it’s a case of old habits die hard, as he’s still too stubborn to ask for assistance when he needs it.
  • Bio: Lucas could have been in Beacon at age 15. He had come from a long line of warriors, he was already skilled with his weapon Summerjeger, and he had shown himself to be a good candidate to be a Hunter. The problem was that he was a cocky son of a gun, always charging into battle before thinking things through. This ended up being his downfall, when he went up against a Beowolf without checking to make sure the rest of the pack was in the area. Lucas was lucky that a Hunter was in the area to save him, but having been blinded in the attack, many thought he would never recover enough to make it into Beacon. Of course, Lucas wanted to prove them wrong. After spending years of training to make up for his lack of sight in combat, he finally got accepted in the Academy

And I end up posting this long before the GM's awake. Just perfect. (>_<)

Welp, I've been using him so much, so might as well.

  • Name: Gaston Cacciatore Scarlett
  • Gender: Male
  • Age: 18
  • Race: Human
  • Appearance: Gaston is a very tall (6'2) young man, with rich dark hair that he puts in a ponytail. He is muscular, and is very proud of his physique. He is always dressed in very expensive clothes, all in his signature red. His gray eyes are sharp and haughty and his facial features are regal, like an old-time noble. He has crisscrossing scars all over his back, and he WILL brag about them.
  • Weapons and Equipment:
    • The Huntsman: Forged by Gaston himself, the weapon is normally kept in it's sheathed state, a long silver metal cylinder strapped to his back. When it unfolds into it's weapon form, it takes the form of a battle axe. It's alternate ranged form is that of a bazooka, capable of firing huge bursts of elemental Dust.
    • Dust pouch: A pouch for The Huntsman's various ammo.
    • Scarlett House Scroll: A customized state-of-the-art Scroll, fit for the scion of the Scarlett family.
  • Semblance: Force: The ability to triple the force exerted by his strike. Costly in it's Aura consumption, but will wreak absolute hell upon his foes. At his point in time, Gaston may only use his semblance thrice in a single day, lest he collapses.
  • Personality: Gaston is a douche. Take Weiss and crank up the Jerkass, and you've got a good grasp of this guy. Gaston is arrogant, entitled, hotheaded and deeply bigoted against the Faunus.He also hates the White Fang with the passion of a thousand suns. He has an unshakeable belief in his own greatness, and will not hesitate to remind you of your place below him. His conceit is so great, that he thinks that hew will not only become the greatest Hunter Beacon has ever produced, but he would also be a key part in final victory against the Grimm. That said, Gaston respects strength, determination, and unfailing principles. He loves a guy who refuses to compromise and never gives up. Those who impress him are quickly offered a place in his gang. Gaston also believes that, as a member of the great nobility, his duty is to fend off the Grimm and protect those who are beneath him. Those losers can't help themselves, anyway. Just be sure to show the proper gratitude!
  • Bio: Gaston is the only son and Heir of the Noble House of Scarlett, members of the high nobility in the Kingdom of Vale. The Scarletts are one of the Schnee's staunchest allies, and are also famed for their state of the art production of technology, like the Scrolls. Yes, losers, we made those. Suck it up. Young Gaston has been groomed since birth to be the greatest Hunter that the House of Scarlett has produced. He was also spoiled rotten. He was sent off to a prostigious combat school, where he quickly formed a gang of notorious bullies. The White Fang, of course, have targeted his family as well, but, eh, those losers are deadmeat when Gaston becomes a Hunter. His family has also been talking of a possible engagement between Gaston and the Schnee heiress. Gaston has no problem with this whatsoever. Weiss begs to differ.

Some possibly concepts for weapons that haven't been used yet but could be interesting if new players want to use 'em.

  • A weaponized 3D Maneuver Gear, maybe built by some sort of eccentric hermit mechanic or as part of a super soldier program, who knows?!
  • Chakrams
  • Meteor Hammer
  • Farming Equipment
  • A Giant Transforming Toilet Seat
  • A Halberd that is also a Rail-gun
  • A Tonfa that also sprays Mace or something?! Maybe with different spray times that use Dust?!

-shrug-

I dunno, some possible concepts in case of writer's block (trust me, it sucks). Feel free to play around with them or whatev's.

And a medium sized piece of artillery I guess you could call a Field Artillery or Tactical Artillery
