I'm pretty sure a sword made out of Aura would tire someone out real quick or possibly kill them.

Why not a lightsaber that uses Dust as the source?

Naeg does that already, actually, but just gains some of its sharpness by warping Ayers' aura around it.

Looks good so far, but you'll have to finish the rest before the GM can say if she's in or not! -shrug-

For a Semblance I'd suggest something that let's you escape from close quarters combat because your weapon doesn't have a melee form, maybe a short range teleport or something of the like?

Wow, that's a good idea! Why didn't I think that instead of already-done super-speed?

So unfortunately i'm going to have to drop this RP - I know that kinda fucks up the whole team dynamic but Stan's got a new character sheet finished and will be posting it soon so if the GM approves, said character will be able to fit in easily as the 16th member.

This came kind of late, but my weekend was super busy.

  • Name: Lumen Silverdine
  • Gender: Male
  • Age: 18
  • Race: Human
  • Appearance: Dark-eyed and light-skinned. Has a single scar over his right eye, which is partially covered up by his curly white hair. Lumen's height is average, but he is quite wiry. He wears a white T-shirt and a short sleeved black khaki jacket over it with silver shoulder pads. Bandages are wrapped around his arms from the end of his sleeve up to his hands, which are covered by fingerless gloves decorated with a circular pattern. On his legs are a pair of baggy gray pants, and below them a pair of black and blue sneakers.
  • Weapons and Equipment:
    • Moonlit Claw: A silver chakram with four curved blades protruding at every 90 degrees. In the center of the weapon is a circular grip connected by four tubes to each of the blades. The grip also stores Dust, which can be carried to and sprayed through the blades for as far as 3 feet to create an explosive whirlwind of Dust. The grip also stores a wire attached to the chakram, which Lumen can take out to swing it around like a bladed yoyo. The wire also allows Lumen to trigger the Dust spray even when the chakram is out of his hands. Last, but not least, the chakram can also transform into a Gatling-style rotary cannon with four rotating barrels. It relies on the Dust stored within the weapon for ammo. In storage, the weapon folds itself into a cylinder, which can also function as a yo-yo.
  • Semblance: Autogravity. Lumen has the ability to shift the effects of gravity on himself for short periods of time. This is very useful for landing safely, making jumps, running up walls, etc. He can't fly with it though, since that kind of stunt requires prolonged and intense use.
  • Personality: Lumen is extremely confident in his abilities, and to prove it, he will pick a fight with anyone and everyone. It's not just about proving his abilities, either, he enjoys a good fight with a fellow individual. But above all else, he really likes to taunt. It's not out of malice, he just likes doing it. While mostly indifferent about almost everything other than fighting, he doesn't give up on things he commits himself to, especially if others are relying on him to do it.
  • Bio: As a small child, Lumen was fairly well-behaved. When his father left him, he just started picking fights. At first, it was just a way of venting frustrations, but then he found that he actually enjoyed it. He was good at it too. A visiting Hunter noticed that as well, and offered Lumen a chance to use his talents for something better than just beating people up. At first, Lumen accepted the offer without thinking, but as he came to know more of the Hunter lifestyle during his time at Signal, he figured it wouldn't be too bad after all.

Couple questions.

Second, are robit girls okay considering there not, really something that, there lacks a precedence for?

Let's see how this goes!

  • Name: Dex "Stinger" Serqet
  • Gender: Male
  • Age: 18
  • Species: Scorpion Faunus
  • Appearance: He is a medium height Caucasian with an athletic build, a slender face, and shoulder-length blond hair and red eyes. He has claws on the tips of his fingers, and a red-orange segmented carapace down his back. His most prominent feature is, of course, his scorpion tail. Sorta like a male version of this, armor- and tail-wise?
  • Weapons:
    • Rancor of Set: A double-bladed chainsaw sword with both blades mounted on a ring around the handle. On the handle are two triggers, one of which revs the blades, and the other of which spins the blades at high speed like a helicopter propeller, becoming a sawblade made of chainsaws. It is also capable of transforming into a Dust-crystal gatling gun made to be mounted on his tail.
    • His claws and tail: While he is a skilled combatant standing, he is equally deadly if not more so on all fours, when he fights with his claws and his venomous stinger tail.
  • Semblance:
    • Spinning: He can use his Aura to cause objects to spin. This can be used to make Rancor Of Set spin so fast in gatling gun mode it practically fires a solid beam of Dust, or spin fast enough in chainsword mode to reduce just about anything to snarge, among numerous other uses. However, overclocking his weapons in this manner tires him out.
  • Personality: Dex is cool. He aims to be the most awesome guy around, and make a lot of friends too, although sometimes he tries too hard and makes a fool of himself. He has a tendency to wink at people, grin maniacally, chat with girls, and walk around with Rancor of Set strapped to his back diagonally. However, he's also an impulsive, hot-blooded fighter, and tends to rush blindly into situations, which often gets him into trouble. For a scorpion, he is very bad with stealth, and his main strategies mostly consist of "let's charge in and see how it likes chainsaws!"
  • Bio: His parents were adventurers, but one day they didn't come back... He had looked up to them as heroes, so he wants to continue in their footsteps and become a Hunter, so he took up his father's weapon, Rancor Of Set, and went to Signal, where he showed great aptitude and ferocity in combat. He applied to Beacon, but a mission gone wrong nearly resulted in the deaths of all his teammates.

I kinda felt uncomfortable writing some parts, as it seemed a bit Marty Stu-ish, but I just kept reminding myself "this is RWBY, where pretty much anything goes" [lol]

Agreed with Taco. You should probably change the Semblance to maintain Superhero Speciation among the characters.

Yeah, it's not like you can basically use an Aura to have more or less any power you want since the setting isn't well-defined or anything
