PostSubject: Sophea Devi Visorith   Sat Apr 26, 2014 10:36 am

Character Info

Name: Sophea Devi Visorith; Nicknamed "Meambao" or "Butterfly"

Gender: Female

Race: Human

Age: 19

Personality: Sophea inherited most of her personality from her father who is a fellow who is duty-bound, loyal, and always up for a task or a challenge. She is generally a sociable person, and she enjoys helping others when she has the time to. Even if she doesn't have the necessary skills for a task, she will try to find a way. She enjoys talking to people about a wide range of topics such as research and development in the medical field, the state of the economy in Vale, various forms of literature, and the recent achievements of any local sports teams. She is the kind of person who does not back down even if against the masses. She is very vocal when she believes that her opinion is important to a discussion.

To some degree, some could say that she is a pretty mellow person. Due to Sophea being sent here by her mother, at points it does feel like a job to her which leads to Sophea not being as emotionally-connected to the place as others may be. It could also be said, because of this, she also views her peers more as co-workers rather than fellow students. There are also times when she acts rather coldly, but these are few and far between and are usually caused by something that breaks into her mellow attitude.

Appearance: Sophea stands at 5'8". She has light-tan skin that would be considered relatively pale compared to those in her hometown. Her smooth, moderately-dark brown hair parts directly above her left eye, her bangs nearly encroaching into the vision of the right. The sides of her hair do not go path her ears, and in the back is a small bun. Her deep-blue eyes radiate with cold intellect and loyalty. Her nose is somewhat short and rounded and her face shares the same features to a lesser extent. Her overall figure is pretty slim and her muscles are quite toned, especially her arms.

Representation: None

Color: Blue Sapphire

Semblance: Chea - By inserting some of her own aura into another person's body, Sophea is able to detect any anomalies that are inside a person's body. It also allows for a degree of healing if she is able to focus her aura into a fine point (such as a needle) near the damaged area if the anomaly happens to be physical damage.

As for its fighting properties, Sophea is able to attach a thread of aura to her throwing needles which allows the needle to act like an extension of a nerve. She is able to feel through the needle whether it be temperature, pressure (whether it be wind or hitting something), and the hardness of whatever is hit by the needle. Aside from this, her semblance also gives her enhanced needles increased piercing potential. In order to stop the aura flow between Sophea and her needles, one must cut the thread of aura trailing behind them. If struck with one, a person can simply remove the needle to prevent it from transferring further information. The thread itself is a faint white which can make it difficult to see.

Emblem: A black shield with a maroon outline and white fist outlined dark grey in the center of the shield.

Bio: Sophea was born in a nearly isolated village east of Vale. Growing up, Sophea quickly tried to walk the path of a scholar because she never found the prospect of fighting appealing. Her parents, while understanding, wanted her to learn how to fight, and they eventually came to a compromise. The compromise was that, in exchange for purchasing whatever academic supplies she needed, she would be allow trained by her parents. Early on, it was clear that Sophea was not a brawler-type like her father (who used gauntlets) and a pseudo-ranged type like her mother (who used chain scythes). Due to being relatively frail compared to others her age, Sophea's mother decided that it would be best for Sophea to use a fighting style that would allow her to make her enemies' strength into her own. Though Sophea's mother intended for her to use dual swords, Sophea instead opted to use rapiers instead as "they are less messy and more efficient". As time went on, Sophea became a decent fighter and, Eventually, her mother asked her to go to combat school in order to follow her footsteps as well as gain valuable experience. Even though Sophea didn't like fighting, she decided to go at her mother's request.

Equipment and Battle Info

Attire: Casually, she wears a sky blue shirt under an unzipped, light-green light-jacket. On her lower body, she wears either a long, black skirt that reaches just below her knees or black jeans and black sneakers with both, the bottom half of the sneakers being white. She also wears on her mother's pearl studded earrings that were given to Sophea as a child. Her nails are rarely painted, and she will always be seen with a book that she is currently reading. She also carries around a red long-strapped purse.

In battle, she wears a black cloth mask over the lower portion of her face. On her upper body is a tight, black Kevlar shirt with the sleeves reaching her wrists. On her hands are skin-tight black gloves, and, on her lower body, she wears black military pants. Covering her outfit is a white doctor's coat that runs to just below her ankles, and it is usually left open to flow in the wind. On her back is a dark-brown backpack with various medical supplies within it including painkillers, bandages, and medicine. She also carries around an 11-inch long box that fits snugly into one of the side pockets of her pants.

Formally, she wears a sleek, dark-green dress that ends slightly above her knees and is held up by thin straps on her shoulders. In her hair is a small flower clip, the petals being pine-green and the center being a rich yellow. Upon her ears the pearl earrings, and on her feet are black heeled-boots that go up to a couple of inches past her ankles.

Fighting Style: When fighting with her rapiers, Sophea's fighting style can be compared to that of a duelist or an assassin. Because of the nature of her weapons, her main defenses are parrying, dodging, and following the movements of attacks to reduce the impact of them if needed. This can also be used to destabilize the enemy by redirecting the momentum of an attack. Offensively, she tries to keep a little distance between her and the enemy while trying to locate enemy weak points. It is from Sophea's close combat style that her name nickname was born.

With her needles, she empowers them through her semblance and attempts to create weaknesses in enemy armor for her teammates to exploit, or she can kill unarmored targets herself.

Despite her expertise in both areas, she stays in the back of a team fight with her needles in order to keep an eye on her teammates as well as movements in the enemy formation.

Weapon 1 Name: Mchoul De Veng

Weapon 1 Range: Short

Weapon 1 Type: Rapier(s)

Weapon 1 Description: The blades of the rapiers extend to 42 inches and are 3 inches in diameter are the base. The blades themselves are steel which gives them a nice silver-gray color though they are coated with a substance that helps against reflecting light. The hilts of the rapiers, though steel, are sapphirine-colored and are in the shape of a half-sphere or cup hilt. The handles of the weapons are 4 inches, and arching over an area is a hand-guard. At the base of the handles are the opening for dust cartridges which allow for the increased stabbing power. Each sword weighs about 5 lbs each. Its overall appearance is simplistic due to the fact that it has to transform.

Weapon 1 Abilities: The only offensive ability that Mchoul De Veng has are dust cartridges that are at the base of the handles which allow for increased thrusting power. Their other ability is to transform into rather large knitting needles for safe keeping or, in extreme circumstances, combat that is so close that it hinders the use of the weapons at full length.

Weapon 2 Name: None

Weapon 2 Range: Short to Medium

Weapon 2 Type: Needles

Weapon 2 Description: These needles are made for combat despite having the design similar to that of upholstery needles. These needles are 10 inches in length and are made of steel. these needles are made for flight which compliments her fighting style.

Weapon 2 Abilities: None besides being used with the semblance (killing, cracking armor, healing people).

Misc. Info

Family: Sophea is the eldest among her siblings.

(Father) Timuoy Visorith - 45
(Mother) Sovanara Devi Visorith - 42
(Brother) Rangsei Visorith -17
(Brother) Mao Visorith - 15 (twin)
(Sister) Hansa Visorith - 15 (twin)
(Sister) Nearidei Visorith - 13
(Sister) Achariya Visorith -11

Strengths and Weaknesses: Sophea's eyes are quite sharp, and, while she has prowess in both her agility and her intellect, one of her main weaknesses is that she still find fighting appealing and thus doesn't have that much interest in it which can lead to her being unprepared for specific situations due to possible lack of practice. Her other weakness is that she is relatively weaker than peers though weaker does not necessarily mean weak.

As for hobbies, Sophea enjoys anything that stimulates her mind whether it be literature (reading and writing), research (reading and writing), or logic/puzzle games. She also fancies sewing and knitting though she doesn't really make much of anything useful.

Musically, due to her dexterous nature, she had also is pretty proficient in playing the piano, drums, and xylophone.

Other: Volunteers as an assistant in the infirmary.

There are others that are better at this than I am, I just point out what I see.

So, overall, I do think you have a good character here.
Most things I point out, however, usually pertain to detail, spelling, etc. So, another Admin/Mod may also point out a flaw or flaws they see. Technical things, mostly.

Appearance and Personality seem alright, but, going back to what I said about detail, I'd have to ask of you just a bit more. (You can add to either of the two, if you feel one of them has enough.)

Her Bio could use a bit more, as well. It just looks too short. Description would also be appreciated in the Weapons area.

Spelling, too. I'm noticing a few error's here and there, as well as typo's. I'd recomend giving it a good read through.

Lastly, her name. It follows Monty's Rule, yes?

Added a bit to Personality
Added a tiny bit to Appearance
Added to Bio
Added a bit to Weapon Details (both)
Added ages of siblings

Reworded a bit of Semblance
Reworded small bits of Attire
Reworded a small bit of Fighting Style

As for the name, I asked in chat if Sophea seemed close enough to Sapphire. Someone told me to try it out so I did. It can also be argued that the sapphire can symbolize wisdom and Sophea also translates to wisdom in Greek.

It all looks better, very much so.
Sadly, I can't give you the recommendation; one of the QA's will have to do that.
But, once you get it, I'll see to Accepting you.

Thanks for the thumps-up, Brutus.

Added "It is from Sophea's close-combat fighting style that her name nickname was born." to Fighting Style section because I just remembered about it.
