Character Info

Name: Shinda Onikisu (Shinda= Dead, Onikisu= Onyx)

Gender: Male

Race: Bat Faunus

Age: 17

Personality: Shinda has a very no-nonsense, serious personality. He is very dark and ferocious, obsessed with power and winning any and all challenges and battles. He relishes in being strong, and even shows joy in striking fear into others with his semblance, showing a cruel grin, and even a short chuckle when he sees the fright in their eyes. In his eyes, he only has one thing to fear, losing. Losing to him means that he is not strong enough, and that he is currently failing in his own journey. The thought of one day fighting and losing shakes him to his very soul, and because of this, he chooses his battles very carefully, not engaging opponents above his level, and wasting no energy on those he can dispatch easily.

Appearance: Shinda has a rather sharply built face, with low cheekbones and a narrow, pointed jaw. His eyes, also quite narrow, and slanted, are dark blue colored, with darker accents in them that give them a particularly unsettling appearance. His ashes are black and quite long, and natural shadows fall over his top eyelid and on the outsides of his eyes, almost like a natural eyeshadow. He has fair, pale skin, and dramatically long hair, down to his waist in length. He wears this hair in a tall ponytail, that drops down to his middle back. When pulled back, his very unique hairline shows. He has a widows peak, and rather from grow out from there, his hairline curves back along the top of his head, and then jets forward into two spike-type patterns, almost like two more widow peaks, but curved inwards. At his hairline and at the roots, Shinda's hair is ivory white, like most of his village, but after about a half inch of growth, his hair begins to darken, to a dark grey color, and, after about an inch, to a pitch black. This is not finite though, as wisps of white can still be spotted within his long black locks. Shinda stands at just under six feet tall, being around 5' 8", and he weighs 124 lbs. His build is very slim, but also very muscular, making his appearance quite deceiving. As for faunus traits, Shinda only has the typical sharp pointed fang-like teeth of a bat, but does have very Astute hearing.

Representation: Gashadokuro (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gashadokuro)

Color: Black

Semblance: Shinda is a pyromancer of sorts, his main application of his Semblance being the ability to project black flames up to 3m away from his body, or send out waves or jets of flame about 5m out. He usually uses his sword as a sort of conductors wand to direct the flame, as it came more naturally to him, and, while the flame is not unnaturally hot, it can, and will burn. A secondary effect is that, due to his heritage and unusual aura, while his semblance is in use, Shinda's aura forms around him a very unnerving image. A thick layer of black aura forms and shapes over his skin, his arms and hands being skeletal in shape. His eyes glow a bright red color, and the black aura covers his face, only his mouth left uncovered, and even then, long black spike-like shapes extend across his mouth from his lips like teeth. The aura trails off of his now-ghostly/skeletal from as though he were wearing a cowl over his left shoulder, and his hair is whipped about violently by the pressure coming off his aura. This only appears to be a side effect, and does not change the nature of his aura at all. The aura still behaves like it would normally, healing wounds at the same rate, and protecting him at the same rate. All that appears to happen is that his aura is in a more visible state.

Emblem: None

Bio: Sukoshi was born into a village that lived and hunted on an eastern mountaintop. The people there were all fair skinned and light haired, due to clouds and fog blocking most of the sunlight. There was almost always frost on the ground, if not snow, and if was always rather cold. Black was commonly worn because of it's heat retaining qualities. There was usually not much to hunt on the mountains, and the hunters had to be careful not to overkill the population of the animals that were present, so many went hungry, and starvation was common in the village.

Sukoshi, was an oddity in almost every sense of the word to the village. His hair was dark, his eyes dark around the edges from shadows born from long, black lashes. He was born into a family that protected the village from Grimm, and often went with the hunting parties to protect them as well. The family had been doing this for several generations, and prided themselves on massive pools of what they called "Lunar Influence," for they worshiped the moon, and believed that the power came from their faith. Sukoshi, however, with his pure black aura, was considered an evil child, possessed by dark spirits. This assumption came about when he was sixteen, having been training since the age of ten to be a protector for the village. He was skilled with a sword, and his aura was ready to be unlocked and trained with, though, the sight was so shocking when it occurred, that it caused the person unlocking his aura, his great grandfather, to go into shock, refusing to eat or drink, terrified that he had seen into the soul of a demon. He died three days later from Dehydration, and Sukoshi was banished from his home. This was when his name was changed to Shinda, meaning dead, as he was considered responsible for the death of an ancestor, and therefor dead to his family.

This action determined his path for his life. He lived on guilt for essentially killing his great grandfather, and grew bitter and angry at his family for casting him out. He vowed he'd become strong, so strong as to outclass any of the warriors in his family, to return one day and force them to acknowledge what he had done without their help.

With no family to turn to, he began a trek down a mountain with his clothes, and a weapon he had inherited from his mother on his back, journeying down the mountain with no real direction. He eventually came across a village much like his own, and met a family that also turned out warriors. Here, they had a better understanding of what aura actually was, and Shinda was embraced for his gift, having a good pool to use, and a particularly potent variety of aura. He was taken into the Midori family, and trained under one of the villages Elders, a previous hunter. He was constantly told he was following the path of a boy named Nagisa in this sense, a hunter-in-training native to the village. However, it was always noted how Shinda let negativity rule himself. He killed his ancestor, and he was dead to the only people in his life that SHOULD always be there. He was bitter, resentful, and hateful.

When it was deemed he could learn nothing else in way of combat from the village at the age of seventeen he was given the option to talk with a teacher from a combat school out west who had also put in word for this "Nagisa" two years prior, or he was given the option to live in the village as one of their warriors. Feeling it was his duty to become as powerful as he could, and fully master his aura and semblance, Shinda chose the prior. The teacher met with the boy during a long holiday from the school, observed what he could do, and, the following year, put in a recommendation for him.

Shinda was called forth for an interview, and was afterwords accepted into Beacon Academy, ready to begin his life training to be a hunter.

Equipment and Battle Info

Battle attire: Shinda's attire is very reflective of his home. He wears a short sleeved black kimono with a white interior, the sleeves hanging loosely just around the bend of his arm, and over it he wears a high necked black red long coat with no sleeves, with red lining. Somehow, whether through treating the fabric, or through trick of light, the coat appears to shimmer bright red in the light. Around his waist, a dark red cloth wraps around his waist and hips, hiding the line between his top and bottom pieces of clothing. On his legs he wears Black trousers with loose cuffs around the ankles, and on his feet are black Tabi boots. On his back is a plain brown leather sheath for Hakaishi to rest in. Around the collar of his Kimono is a very ornate design, gold flame-like designs, with red surroundings.

Fighting style: Shinda mixes his semblance and swordsmanship perfectly, able to step carefully and dodge precisely, while staying close to his opponent to keep his sword optimal. He usually will only use his fire if he is in danger of losing the battle, or if he is at a distance. He relies on heavy hits and quick reaction time to keep himself alive.
However, when loosing, Shinda will switch to one of two specific styles of swordplay, sometimes changing between the two freely. One is a two handed grip on the blade, using several quick, hammering attacks, horizontal slashes, spinning the sword to chain together strikes, and heavy use of his flame. The purpose of this style is to overwhelm the opponent and simply beat them into submission through raw power. The other style involves a backward grip on the blade, holding it along his arm in a reverse grip, the blade curving back around his other side. This style utilizes spinning the body into the opponent to force the sword towards the enemy, and using natural momentum to follow up with showy, spinning attacks, every so often bringing in a kick of two. This style focuses on energy conservation, using natural momentum to keep as much energy preserved as possible, and even give Shinda a bit of a rest.
Alongside his swordsman ship, Shinda is an able hand to hand fighter as well, utilizing mostly heavy kicks and light, fast punches to wear his opponent down, before striking at vital points to take them down, usually the eyes or neck.

Weapon Name: Hakaishi

Weapon Range: Short to Mid range

Weapon type: Arced sword (Curved Greatsword, for those unfamiliar, see video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HATilKsyLZ0 )

Weapon Description: Hakaishi is a sword passed down through Shinda's family since before their family history was even recorded. It's eastern influences show in on the blade and a bit of western type influence shows just above the handle. It is a curved greatsword with a standard steel blade. On the end of the blade is a sort of turned back, thorned edge (See here: http://img4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20120612183807/elderscrolls/images/e/e5/Scimitar.png )
The blade of the weapon is 43 inches long in total length, and reaches out 36 inches with the curve. It was a single edge on the outside of the curve. At the base of the blade is a symbol from Shinda's home village meaning Angel, and on the end of the blade is a symbol meaning demon. These symbols are engraved into both sides of the blade and darkened with chemical paint. At the base of the sword are two spikes jetting back towards the handle and guard, and under those, between their bases and the guard, is a black leather wrap. The guards extend out about three inches on either side, then sharply turn back and in towards the handle, and stop about halfway down the handle length. The handle is about seven inches long, with ringed steel grip, darkened with the same chemicals as the symbol, and on the bottom is a small, steel pommel cap.
The sword weighs about ten pounds. Its a rather slow swing for most, but having grown accustomed to the weight, Shinda is able to swing it rather quickly with two hands, or at a moderate speed with one hand.

Weapon Abilities: Hakaishi has no special abilities unique to it, however, Shinda does use the weapon to sometimes conduct his aura into waves, jets, or AoE flame attacks.

Misc. Info

Family: Disowned

Strengths and Weaknesses: Shinda is very acclimate to cold temperatures, and grows uncomfortable and heated at what most could consider room temperature, though this also means he can stand temperatures much colder than most. He also cannot swim, and fears the water due to childhood stories of demons that lived in water, lured people in, then drowned them slowly over the course of three days.

Well, far as I can see there's no problem.
Although, just before I recommend, the Color as "Black" is in relation to his last name meaning "Onyx", right?

That is an awfully specific fear of water.
