PostSubject: Gormlaith Kaltrina Watt-Schneidemesser   Tue Mar 25, 2014 7:36 am

Character Info

Name: Gormlaith Kaltrina Watt-Schneidemesser (Gormlaith and Kaltrina meaning Blue / Light blue respectively.)

Gender: Female

Race: Faunus (Albino Lynx)

Age: 20, coming up to 21 (Born on the 12th day of the fourth month)

Personality: Kind though childish to most, after the events of her sister's injury, she has become more strained in her relationships to other Faunus. She now views them under either two categories. If she views them as weaker than her, she acts as if they were humans, keeping her kind and friendly persona. However, if she deems that they are or could be a threat, she acts increasingly hostile towards them, often attacking them when she can get away with it, though these people are few and far between, having a sense of hubris from her genetics. However, this does not apply to humans, viewing them all as equals and thus those that she knows are stronger than her receive the same treatment as those weaker than her. However, she can be rather promiscuous with her friends, though this is not the case for strangers.


Appearance:
Height: 5’6’’
Weight: 126Ib
Eye Colour: Purple
Hair: Lavender (Dyed from blonde)
Kaltrina is a relatively tall girl with purple eyes and a pale complexion. She wears her lavender hair down and with a braid on the side, tied with a black ribbon, leaving her cat ears on full display, the same as her tail what are both snow-white. Her outfit consists of a dark purple collared jacket over a white blouse and brown tie, along with a short skirt and heeled knee-high boots. She always wears her custom-made black gloves. Another trait of hers other than her Faunus traits is that she has a beauty mark on her right cheek.
Spoiler:
 

Representation: Dairmuid Ui Duibhne ( The pursuit of Diarmuid and Gráinne )

Color: Blue

Semblance: Unholy Briar: Her aura can take the form of a vine-covered in many inch long thorns. The vines must be generated from her body, and cannot reach a distance longer than five meters away from her. The thorns cannot be controlled; they can only grow and only work like real thorns. The vines themselves grow around Gormlaith's body, and can latch to  clothes, but only actually do damage upon coming in contact with skin. The thorns do not pierce armour, and do not pierce clothing enough to do damage. The vines can be used like whips to wrap around something like a person, or an object so she can swing on it. She just needs to keep in mind that the thorns can still hurt her. The vines aren't super durable, as they can still be cut and severed by weapons and such so they only really act as an effective protection against unprotected opponents. They can also be set on fire or frozen solid so the vines are actually pretty weak, save for the incredibly sharp thorns that can easily pierce flesh.

Bio: Gormlaith was left on the doorstep of a rich family of humans who had recently immigrated to Vale, the two adults already having a son, Horace Mortimer and a daughter, Opaline Marzia. Despite growing up knowing she was adopted, Kaltrina received just as much attention as her older brother and younger sister, being seen as part of the flesh and blood of the family. However, at the age of Ten, the then seven year old Opaline suffered an accident during her initiation when her dust backfired against a Faunus, crippling her and causing her to need an artificial arm. Deciding to take up her sister's wish to be a fighter, she changed from her own personal wish to have a quiet life in the legal area to join Beacon and become a huntress.

Attending Sanctum, it was quickly discovered she was a natural at the usage of a spear and was fully capable of using two at the same time, though she was unable to use even the most basic of firearms well enough to use them in combat. The only other weapon she showed any sign of use in was the sword, though she chose not to use them. She also started a group with her friends, naming themselves ‘The Kemeroi' though there was no real leader, it was more often than not Gormlaith and her best friend as well as rival Aife who jointly led the group.

Finishing at the top of her class, she had no problems getting into Beacon, deciding to fully commit herself to both the academic and physical side of learning, deeming the requirement to protect and serve the people being worth more than her own stress (Even if she is good at both sides of learning). Soon into her first year was when her views of Faunus became so skewered, a walk through the darker areas of Vale revealing a group of White Fang members attacking a defenceless family of humans who had strolled too far from home. After the subsequent fight, she noticed nearby Faunus sheepishly moving to help the individuals, realising that the newcomers were just as scared of the White Fang as the humans were. Because of this, she deemed herself to add another job to her mental list. Defender of the innocent, regardless of their race or species, and to crush those Faunus she deems as stronger than her so they cannot abuse others for their own goals.


Equipment and Battle Info

Battle attire: Her battle attire is relatively simple, wearing a leather corset with layered bronze plate on her chest with Kevlar underneath the material only, bronze Shoulder plates and leather trousers with adjustable drawstrings down the legs to tighten or loosen them around the legs only. She also sports steel vambraces and leather boots. Utilising on mobility as protection rather than armour.
Spoiler:
 

Fighting style: Has a unique fighting style in that she uses both her long spear and short spear in tandem with each other, keeping her opponent off guard on which spear she is going to strike with. However, she is just as capable using one spear at a time and leaving the other on the ground or away. She also prefers to either avoid strikes due to the lack of defensive armour on most of her body, and the fact it requires both spears to effectively block an attack.

Weapon Name: Shadowfell, Black Spear of the Kemeroi

Weapon Range: Short-medium  

Weapon type: Long Spear / Baton

Weapon Description: A spear what can be wielded either with one hand or two, it is 2m long and entirely black, with the only design on it being its name down the middle in bright red. The twin-sister spear to Dal’shien. When in need of an easier way to carry, it can be changed into a blunt baton, being clip able to her waist.

Weapon Abilities: The spearhead is covered in an Anti-coagulant poison which lasts for five minutes before wearing off, this causes the blood to be unable to clot and thus lead to increased seriousness of the most simple of cuts as they won't stop bleeding before the five minutes are up. The large amount of poison is kept within the spearhead in a reinforced container.

Weapon Name #2: Dal'shien, White Spear of the Kemoroi

Weapon Range #2: Short

Weapon type #2: Short Spear / Baton

Weapon Description #2: A spear what can be wielded either with one hand or two, it is 1.6m long and entirely White, being much like its twin-sister spear Shadowfell in that it only has its name on it though it is in bright blue. Another aspect shared between the two is the transform-ability to become a blunt and easy to carry baton. Because of the spear’s ability, the spearhead is strengthened in comparison to the Black spear.

Weapon Abilities #2: Upon touching dust, which is not from her own blade, the spearhead emits a pulse of electricity dust to disrupt and subsequently explode the dust before it reaches her.

Misc. Info

Family: Serena Ailbhe Watt-Schneidemesser, mother. Methodios Abelio Watt-Schneidemesser, father. Opaline Morgana Watt-Schneidemesser, sister. Horace Mortimer Watt-Schneidemesser, brother. All alive and in regular contact with Gormlaith.



Strengths and Weaknesses: Kaltrina has the ability to see in the dark and is ambidextrous. Naturally proficient with the art of warfare and its teachings, using her analysing skills to analyse the situation and consider all the appropriate courses of action, this also allows her to act as a leader role or analyser for battles. She is a master at using two spears at once, able to fight as if she was using only one. She is above average in her grades, though any what requires her to analyse are easily among her best, being among the top in that respect.

However, Kaltrina only has only short-range weaponry so is left unable to fend against long-range, often leaving that to her allies. Lasers pointers: Also known as her mortal enemy, for some reason she is automatically drawn to them, whether in combat or just relaxing, unable to take her eyes off them until they disappear. This means it is easy for her to get injured. She also lacks sufficient armour, with most of her body lying unprotected from any strike what gets past her blocking what requires both of her spears to be used. Despite this, she has incredible difficulty blocking precision weapons due to the length and weight of the spears not being fast enough in comparison. Immediately after a strong strike, Gormlaith can become dazed, thus enabling for easy disarming.

A few things.

First off, the Personality mentions an event taking place in a factory, but not mention of this appears in her Bio.

Second, we have it that an unnatural hair color needs to be either dyed or given reason to be so. Sorry.

Third, with the poison in Shadowfell, maybe explain what it actually does for those who might not know what and anti-coagulant is.

Fourth, as crippling as the thing about the laser pointers is, I don't really see people carrying them into battle (Except as aiming tools for guns). Not saying get rid of it, just that I'd like to see more weaknesses.

And last, I know you told us in chat, but could you put the link between her name and color somewhere in the profile? That'd be great.

Few questions of my own (don't worry, you keep the recommendation).

For the armor you describe and provide a picture of: Is that really all she wears into battle, or is there more to it? Any sort of protection for her forearms and wrists? What about her ankles, shins and feet?

For her bio: I think having more of the highlights of her life that shaped her as a person would be useful in bringing her to life as a character, and I also ask that you separate paragraphs by an empty line, please. Makes it easier for me to read.

Could you do the same with separating strengths and weaknesses as well? Don't know why it took me as long as it did to think of that...

Only other thing I can think of is to go back through and check grammar, spelling, and work out a few redundancies and unnecessary wordiness.

Overall, though, I'd say pretty well done.

I just noticed you use the word "however" a lot.
