Character Info

Name: Dorrance "Doris" Souris Thistle
Spoiler:
 

Gender: Female

Race: Faunus (Dormouse-based)

Age: 17

Personality: Dorrance is a timid girl faunas who dislikes social interaction to an extent. When she is alone, she tends to portrays melancholy and dreamlike state, often reading her books alone in her library or dozing off in a cozy spot (she favors greatly shady hills and house hearths). Surrounded by others, Doris gets extremely nervous and agitated, not really knowing how to interact much and usually mumbles to herself or exclaims "How unpleasant!". When pressured into interaction or something she doesn't like, she tends to get teary-eyed and she is easily moved by her emotions into either getting angry or crying. The few ways to calm her down is to give her jam or to hand her a book. Despite being a faunus, she grew up not knowing much about the difference between humans and her own race and she treats people equally and becomes confused when people mistreat her due to her heritage. She does, however, have an initial fright of cats and cat faunas in whole, due to her past history with them.

Doris likes to be by herself and loves her books more than the company of real people. She treats them as her "children", though due to her over reading, they tend to get bent, torn and damaged to an extent. Though terribly scared of social interaction, the few people she trusts and warms up to are very close to her and she will do everything in her power to protect them and keep them smiling. She also doesn't seem intimidated by cute animals and small children.

Appearance:

Spoiler:
 

Dorrance is a girl with a height of 5'4" with violet hair that reaches down past her waist. The front locks of her hair are gathered into two bundles and tied with ribbons at the end as two front ponytails. She has a small, heart-shaped face with big, but deep set violet eyes that give her a saddened or dreamy expression. She has a pale porcelain complexion but her cheeks are usually rosy (mostly due to embarrassment). She is light weighted and has a thin frame. Due to her faunus heritage, Dorrance has two thistle-purple dormouse ears on her head, but this is usually hidden by her nightcap.

Representation: Sleeping Beauty/ The Dormouse from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

Color: Thistle Purple

Semblance: Rune Caster

Dorrance's semblance allows her to use runes in order to manipulate the movement of an object and dust itself.

Motion- Dorrance can cast a set of runes in order to move an object without holding it, usually her weapon. She can only move it, however, within a five feet radius (as if she were using a long weapon) and therefore has to move in order to continuously use it. Dorrance can also only cast the motion runes on two medium sized objects at a time (the size of her weapon, for example) or several small objects at once (e.g. three books). She cannot cast the motion rune anything larger than herself, on people, things that are constantly moving or not solid (e.g. water). Color: gold

Platform- Dorrance can use her runes to cast a glyph that can sustain her or someone else in a air on a levitated platform (e.g. similar to Weiss Schnee's air step). She can only cast one glyph at a time and it has a one foot radius. If she or the affected person moves away from the glyph, they will no longer be under it's effect. She can also use the platform as a small shield if cast vertically. Color: Light Blue

Jump- Dorrance can create a glyph that can propel her or another person into the air (5 feet at highest per glyph). This also has a one foot radius. Color: White

Sustain- Dorrance can create a glyph with a gravitational effect that can keep her set standing firm in place despite her position.

Cast- Dorrance can use her runes to manipulate her dust and cast it out as effects, depending on the dust she uses, but it will depend on her stock of dust. The more she charges the runes, the larger the effect she can cast but it takes more dust from her stock.


Emblem:
Thorned Rose:
 

Dorrance's emblem is the Thorned Rose. It consists of a black rose in the middle of a spinning-wheel like circle, though it has twisted curving vines that extend from it rather than straight wooden spokes. In the background is a complex floral pattern and in the middle of the rose is a star-like bloom.

Bio:

Spoiler:
 

Equipment and Battle Info

Attire:

Dorrance's attire consists of a purple-striped nightgown covered by a frilly thistle-purple robe adorned with small bows. She wears a night bonnet of the same color with a crescent moon and two bows wrapping up small pouches for her violet mouse ears.  She wears lacy white socks and fuzzy white night slippers. When in formal battle, she will wear a light blue mage robe over her nightdress with a hood also holding the crescent moon on it. Though not part of her attire, Dorrance can always be seen with a book or two in hand.

Fighting style: Dorrance is a head-on fighter who uses close to long rage combat and dust magic when facing her opponent. While fighting her opponent, she analyzes their movements trying to find their weak points and their strengths and uses them to her advantage. She focuses more on attack than defense and relies on swift multiple attacks rather than a fully plotted heavy blow, hence does not take much consideration to protecting herself as much as she does damaging her opponent. Dorrance is quick and agile due to her small frame and easily evades large and heavy attacks.

Weapon Name: Dream Catcher

Weapon Range:

Chakram Form- 5m radius

Gun Form-40ft

Dust casting- 20ft

Weapon type: Dust-utilizing chakram that can transform into a sub-machine gun

Weapon Description:

The Dream Catcher takes on the appearance of a spinning wheel 1.5 feet in radius entwined in rose thorns with a rose bloom at the middle and attached to the stand which acts as a handle. When activated, the spinning wheel can detach from the stand and turn into a large, spiked chakram that Dorrance can manipulate using her semblance in order to fight.

When attached to the stand, the spinning wheel can close and extend into a sub-machine gun that can send out automatic multiple rounds, either dust or ammunition as loaded by Dorrance.

Weapon Abilities: The Dream Catcher's unique abilities lie on Dorrance's manipulation of her semblance. She can use runes to help her cast out the dust she desires into effect from the spinning wheel.

Misc. Info


Family: Sylvia Thistle (deceased), Mr. and Mrs. Stephen Veilbauchen (status unknown)

Strengths and Weaknesses: Dorrance is an exceptional dust mage with high levels of aura. She is not easily worn out when she uses dust magic and is sensitive to her aura and the aura of those around her. Her high intelligence allows her to analyze her opponents' movements in order for her to make a more defining strike or finding a weak point. She is swift due to her built and can easily evade slow attacks. Despite this, Dorrance is vulnerable to heavy blows, not wearing any defining armor and having only a medium sized weapon to defend her. Dorrance is also poorly skilled in defense and relies on quick blows and damage rather than a long-endured battle. Dorrance only has an average amount of strength and is also poor in unarmed combat.

Alright, soooo...... Most everything looks good, here. Although, there are a few Spelling errors and typos.
A few things I must ask of you, though.
- If you could add a bit more to her appearance, that'd be great. The picture itself is nice, but I, for one, would like to see more words put into it.
- Representation. You can have one, or the other, but I don't think you can have both, sorry....
- Emblem. The picture helps, but description with words is also appreciated.
- Bio. I get why you put it in a Spoiler box, I won't ask you to change it, but I can't speak for the others.

Other than those, I don't see much else wrong.

Sorry this took a while. Anyways:

-Edited as many spelling errors and typos I could find (Sorry about that)
-Added description to emblem as requested
-Added slightly more detail to the Appearance section
-I consulted Zou Sama regarding the representations and he had no qualms with having two, so I hope that is okay on your part.

Hope this helps and thank you once again for looking over it!
