Welcome new students. I am Professor Ozpin, headmaster of Beacon Academy. You select few have been chosen to undertake our special schooling to train you and mold you into future Huntsman and Huntresses. Here you will learn the history of the Huntsman and Huntresses, why they are necessary, and what you need to know to stay alive. Starting off you'll be paired up with three other Huntsman and/or Huntresses, forming a team, whom you will be with until graduation, and possibly even afterwards. Soon, you will arrive, and I will be able to welcome you personally. Until then, farewell.

 

So, like I said in the interest check, this is an alternate universe RP for the show RWBY made by Rooster Teeth and the late Monty Oum. In this universe the main teams of the show don't exist (i.e. RWBY and JNPR) But in there place will be teams made up of our characters. We'll be starting out from the first season, which will setup our characters as teams and get the interactions between them, then later move onto season two with the Field Study with actual Huntsman and Huntresses, and finally season three with the Vital Festival and the Fall of Beacon, hence the name of the RP.

 

Basic RP and Forum rules apply, no god modding, now power plays, or controlling other characters without permission, no romance over PG13, yadda yadda. I'm mainly looking for at least three other people so we can at least have one team, but I will accept several people so we can get multiple. I'll even accept late entry's if we can get full teams, and introduce them as the story progresses, as some teams in the show didn't even get mentioned or seen until later.

 

Teams:

 

Team MORL (Moral)

Lucas Lunaris

Onyx Pitch-Black

Melody Rainfall

Raevus Krysse

 

Here is the Character Sheet:

 

Name: (Character name)

Age: (should be around 16-17, can be as young as 15 if you can explain why you'd be accepted so young)

Gender: (Self explanatory, male or female)

Race: (Human or Faunus. If Faunus, state what animal and include animal attributes in Other)

Appearance: (Can either use a pic, or write a description)

Bio: (Just some basic info about your character)

Semblance Name: (The name you have given to your Semblance)

Description of Semblance: (What your Semblance does)

Semblance Limitations: (The limits of your Semblance, to keep you from being too powerful)

Weapon: (List main form, and transformation if it has a second form, like sword into gun)

Favored Dust Element: (if your weapon uses dust)

Other: (Anything else you want to add here)

 

And here's my character

 

Name: Lucas Lunaris

Age: 16

Gender: Male

Race: Cat Faunus

Appearance: 0bb6995cf4d4b3afaa67bb081d8c3ad1.jpg

Bio: Lucas was once a member of the White Fang, back when they were a peaceful protesting group, however once things started to get violent, he left, wanting nothing to do with them anymore. He hides that he was once apart of the White Fang, but not the fact that he is a Faunus. He his proud of his nature and race and if anyone tries to give him crap about being a Faunus, he'll make them wish they hadn't. However, he doesn't support violence against people he doesn't feel deserve it, which is why he left the White Fang, who wanted to punish both the guilty and the innocent.

Semblance Name: Teleport

Description of Semblance: Allows Lucas to teleport from one spot to another instantly. He can take others with him if they are touching him.

Semblance Limitations: Lucas can only teleport to places he can see with his own eyes, and must be able to focus on the exact spot he will be. This cannot be done with pictures or video, unless it's a live feed, however he can use a mirror to teleport, as well as using his scope to teleport further distances. However, if he cannot focus, he won't be able to teleport, so, for instance, he wouldn't be able to teleport while being attacked, as he'd be focusing on the enemies.

Weapon: Katana with Sheath named Sogeki Ken (Literally means Sniper Sword). The sheath can transform into a pistol and used alongside the Katana, or he can attach the Katana to the sheath and turn the entire thing into a sniper rifle. Both the pistol and sniper take dust bullets

Favored Dust Element: Lightning for stunning bullets, but also uses Fire and Ice for burning and freezing

Other: As a cat Faunus, Lucas is able to see in the dark with his cat eyes, and also has increased hearing with his cat ears.

Name: Onyx Pitch-Black
Age: 17
Gender: Male
Race: Deer Faunus
Appearance:

 

 

tumblr_oppsdxUz8A1rg7m7oo4_r1_1280.png

 


Bio: One time, some place in Mistral, in its many locations where the Black Market thrived, an upper-class woman ventured into the darkness of it out of curiosity. There, inside a cage, wearing nothing but shorts and covered in scars and dirt, she found Onyx, who merely five years of age, chained by the neck and wrists to the heavy cage he sat in. Her heart tugged, to think that the depravity of the black market would go as far as to sell children. In a moment of pity and kindness, she bought Onyx, and brought him with her to her home where she raised him as her own in the riches of the high class of Mistral. Even as he lived and was raised in the best that Mistral had to offer, his origins became a topic of scandal and rumor, making him an outcast in his own city. He suffered through constant bullying, always coming home with either a bruise or tears in his eyes. Despite this his mother comforted him, and with her love, he managed to grow up to a strong young man, educated in the arts along with many other subjects, and eventually decided he wanted to become a Hunter. When it came time for him to attend the school, however, he begged for his mother to send him to one of the Academies outside of Mistral, somewhere where his origins would not matter and would not interfere with his training as a Hunter. His mother agreed, deciding that he would be sent to Beacon. He is on his way, and he is ready to make a name for himself.
Semblance Name: Aura Surge
Description of Semblance: His aura takes a physical and tangible form that is manipulated across his body for offense and defense. The user could create a shield from it over an area of their body to protect or lessen the upcoming damage.
Semblance Limitations:

  • Manipulating his aura directly from his body to be in any specific and useful shape is extremely difficult and requires much concentration, leaving him defenseless.
  • Due to the limitation above, if his weapon were to be broken or disabled, Onyx would be left unable to use his semblance to its full potential as he would with them.
  • The more aura he pours, the more energy from the user it requires.
  • If the aura is shattered or disrupted, the energy that it took to create it disappears with it, causing exhaustion from it’s host.
  • If it is constantly disrupted and broken, it can overwhelm the host to the point of fainting from physical and mental exhaustion.

Weapon: Doppelganger - It takes the basic shape of two technically advanced (and quite expensive) gauntlets. The weapon itself was specifically built to help him ease the channeling of his aura to his hands, allowing him to morph aura version of weapons to adapt to the current situation. With dust, his aura weapon can be infused with corresponding elements for an extra kick.
Favored Dust Element: Fire
Other:

  • He has night vision and enhanced hearing due to his faunus physique.
  • He is skilled in playing the Violin, the Piano, and the Flute.
  • Due to the structure of his weapon, he was trained in the use of multiple weapons. Including: whip, scythe, axe, war hammer, dual swords and others.
  • His scarf was a departing gift from his mother before leaving for Beacon.
  • His father figure is his and his mother's bodyguard, an ex-hunter who inspired him to become one himself.
  • Despite being spoiled by his mother, he has maintained a very content and simple lifestyle outside of his home.
  • His mother is a music composer and conductor for plays and movies.
  • Her father, and Onyx’s grandfather, is one of the councilmen of Mistral’s council.

Sounds cool. A couple names come to mind now, but I'll wait till Yessie's ready.

 

Weapon: Katana with hilt. The hilt can transform into a pistol and used alongside the Katana, or he can attach the Katana to the hilt and turn the entire thing into a sniper rifle. Both the pistol and sniper take dust bullets.

Awesome idea! Dammit I had something similar! I love Katana's. xD It'd be cool if it was the hilt, but what I think you're talking about is the Katana's scabbard (saya)? The long guard-cover on it, right?

Name: Melody Rainfall

Age: 16

Gender: Female

Race: Human

Appearance: rwby_oc__rikka_by_shelbybl-d6q8cea.jpg

Bio: Melody was Born and raised in Atlas and comes from a rich family. She lost both of her parents and was raised by her uncle. Her uncle however, is abusive to her, treating her like a maid, always get yelled at or gets beat up by him, and forcing her to clean and served everyone with food. She cries herself to sleep every night and can't lie about how she feels. She couldn't take it anymore and decided to ran away from her home and lives with her brother. Melody always wanted to be a hero like her father and her brother. So she started training with her brother until she was ready to go to Beacon to become a huntress and hoping make some friends.

Semblance Name: Water Bending

Description of Semblance: Her semblance allows her to bend water and controls it how she wants.

Semblance Limitations: If she used her semblance too much, she'll get tired and can't used it for 5 hours. She can only use it if she's close to a lake or anything that has water in it which it's makes her vulnerable if there's no water.

Weapon: Blue Diamond: (showed in the picture) her pistols can also turned into a scythe. She also used Dust as bullets to make it more a bit powerful.

Favored Dust Element: She used Fire, Lighting, Ice, Wind and Water.

Name: Raevus Krysse

Age: 17

Gender: Male

Race: Human

Appearance: 6879355d92d2e9998b62a4cdc2870b7d--touken

Bio: Despite his often flighty way of saying things, Raevus is easily personable. He has a way of being confident without an overbearing cockiness, and he'd rather think things through and take a moment to reflect and recollect than rush in headfirst into conflict. His lackadaisical nature often gets him into a bit of trouble, and people have found him difficult to work with if he's decided another way is better, despite the concequence. Raevus has a strange way of being sociable, but is oddly off out by mentions or inquiries of details of his past.

Semblance Name: Ninjutsu

Description of Semblance: A familial Semblance. Allows Raevus to weave a number of signs with his hands in a specific order to yield a differing results. At the present, Raevus knows only of one technique; one that speeds up the swing of his blade.

Semblance Limitations:

Raevus requires time to weave the spell together, and in a specific order. It takes aura to weave spells. If his ninjutsu weaves are broken, his aura takes a hit along with the spell not working.

If successful, however, it is even more draining of aura.

 

Weapon: A one-handed backhanded sword embedded with the name "Krysse" upon its hilt. A sword passed down to the youngest of his family.

Favored Dust Element: Lightning

Other:

-If anything, a good cook.

-Likes jewelry, and dons a silver earring and necklace, both with a small glowing engraving...

-Albeit social, he prefers one on one conversations. At those -times, he can be an open book.

-Spends time strolling sometimes; others he uses to spar.

-Has a strong connection to family...

Don't fully understand the semblance. What is the attack clone and how does it change one slash into three? And why does he need his semblance to transform his weapon when most weapons can transform normally? And what is Substitution? To me this semblance seems more like a taught aura manipulation rather than an innate ability

Well I was basically thinking that moreso than anything. The aura manipulation part is intentional.

 

I was thinking along the lines of Weiss, where her glyphs had a bunch of different things they did. Also noted how her weapon didn't transform; I wanted to have that transformation tied to the semblance itself as well due to its special nature of "aura manipulation" if you will. Although I can take it out. Just thought I'd make it a little interesting.

 

Yeah, the semblance is basically as you put aura manipulation. And since aura is like a force field as Jaune says, that's the major drawback of using it; it takes his force field away, kinda like Sun's clones.

As far as the attack clone thing, I got that idea from how Samurai/ninjas have this cliché slash that they do, and when they sheath their sword, it's like they did more. Ehh.... It's easier to see than visualize.

So does it speed up his attacks so that three slashes loom like one? Because what you see samurai do when they draw their swords, slash once, then sheath them, but the enemy gets cut several times, it's actually them slashing faster than the eye can see, so it looks like one slash, but is actually several. It's not some magical thing that makes one attack become several after the fact, it's just speed. And I still don't know what substitution is.

Switching places with something in sight. Say, a twig or leaf.

So basically it's a semblance that gives you multiple abilities based off of ninjas and samurai from anime, but you only have two abilities at the moment, because I'm not counting the weapon transformation as part of the semblance because it doesn't make sense to make you waste your aura to change your weapon's form when most other weapons don't need aura to transform. And I know Weiss's rapier doesn't transform, but in her case it's fine because she doesn't need it to, she doesn't use some sort of ability to change it, which makes your reasoning for using your semblance to cause the transformation make less sence. I'm sorry if it sounds harsh, I don#t mean to tear into your ability or character or anything, I'm just trying to make sense of it, and figure things out. If I sound harsh it's because I'm a huge fan of the series and I just want to make sure everything fits in with the world just right.

Sure I can edit it out. Any other changes?

No, I pretty much understand the rest. Was I correct in saying that the attacking one just sped up his attacks?

Yeah. I think I wasn't thinking straight and some things just came out confusing and weird.

 

It's fixed. Don't worry about sounding harsh, it's your RP and you want it the way you want it to go, as should any RP host. So I'm cool with that.

Alright, you're in!

Welp, seems I'll have to go with MORL, since not really many other options. I had intended to have Lucas be the leader, and have it start with L, but my options with that were LORM, LOMR, LMOR, LMRO, LROM, or LRMO, so my hand is kinda forced with that one.

 

Anywho, we now have Team MORL (Moral)
