History: Nephrite’s childhood was a rather complicated one. His parents ran a secret smuggling ring, known by its followers as The Sin-dicate (a combination of the family name and the word syndicate), that supplies an underground community of people in poverty. Because of them leading smuggling missions, sometimes both of Nephrite’s parents wouldn’t be around, so he spent part of his childhood being taken care of by his aunt and uncle.
While staying with his aunt and uncle, Nephrite and his cousin, Tatiana, became very close, and Nephrite took on a sort of big brother role in Tatiana’s life. He would often try to cheer her up when she was sad or make up stories to entertain her when they were little. Nephrite’s uncle also gave him and Tatiana some self-defense/fighting lessons in between his huntsman missions, allowing him to develop the fighting skills he uses nowadays.
When Nephrite’s parents were around, they raised him to be the next leader of The Sin-dicate, encouraging him to help people in poverty, even by operating outside of the law, as well as expanding his repertoire of fighting skills.
When Nephrite turned 16, his parents gave him his current weapons, a set of duel wielded Apache Revolvers, and gave him extensive training with them. In between his training courses with his new weapon, Nephrite began getting more involved with The Sin-dicate, going on smuggling missions with his parents and even attending celebratory parties when a mission went successfully. It was through these parties that Nephrite was first introduced to alcohol, and over time he developed a habit of drinking a lot at parties.
Once he turned 18, Nephrite inherited the title of leader of the Vale branch of The Sin-dicate, while his parents moved to start another branch in Vacuo, and Nephrite has been running The Sin-dicate with proficiency (and an affinity for alcoholic beverages) ever since. While he doesn’t keep in touch with Tatiana as much as he used to, the two do occasionally write to each other, and Nephrite is always willing to help his cousin out.
Personality: Nephrite is a sarcastic little shit that can never get enough of the party life. While he takes his job as leader of The SIN-dicate very seriously, he never lets that get in the way of his fun loving, chaos creating side. Nephrite is also a bit of a flirt. He will hit on almost any girl he sees. He will usually stop after being rejected, however his naturally optimistic personality allows him to bounce back almost instantaneously, resulting in him flirting with the very next girl he sees.
In spite of Nephrite's liberal flirting, there is one girl in particular that he has intentionally flirted with multiple times, in spite of rejection; his Second-in-Command, Modry Hrich. Nephrite's primary reason for this is that he believes Modry is simply being too tsundere too show her real feelings (not his exact thought, but basically the gist of it stated in an easy to understand way). That, and he enjoys seeing her aggravated reactions to his harmless teasing.
Nephrite's the type of person that, if two of his team members got in to a mild argument over something trivial (the kind of fight that couldn't potentially cause any permanent damage to their friendship), rather than trying to stop the argument as soon as possible, he would sit on the side lines with a bucket of popcorn.
To top it all off, Nephrite has a tendency to be a bit narcissistic. Drunk tendencies he has, lack of self confidence, he does not. However Nephrite is fully aware that his narcissism annoys his teammates from time to time, and will sometimes exaggerate it just to be the annoying little shit he was born to be. One of his stunts that annoys his teammates the most is when he'll just randomly start looking at himself in a mirror and compliment himself for hours on end.
However, for all his teasing and joke making, Nephrite, underneath all that sarcasm, is a very caring individual. His time acting as a big brother to his cousin, Tatiana, led him to have a bit of a big brother instinct towards everyone he cares about. While he'll be his usual, trashy self under normal circumstances, if any of his friends, teammates or family were to be injured, he would show his more serious, protective side.
Weapon of Choice/Fighting Style: Al and Moran (duel wielded Apache Revolvers)
Despite Nephrite's scrawny appearance, he's actually a very skilled light weight brawler. His specialty is dodging blows sent his way with incredible reflexive skills, as well as speed and agility, and landing as many punches as he can in between dodges. This is why Nephrite prefers to use the brass knuckle part of his weapon rather than the knife or gun whenever he can. While Nephrite is trained in his weapon well enough to know how to effectively use all it's functions, his love for being in his opponent's face makes him default to throwing punches.
While Nephrite's specialty is fist to fist brawling, he is also skilled in effectively using knife fighting skills, though the knife is his least favorite part of his weapon. The actual revolver part of his weapon is always kept loaded with dust bullets, which Nephrite, being surprisingly clever despite his reckless habits, prefers to use for more practical, mission related practices, rather than fighting. While he can use these bullets to his advantage in a fight, Nephrite usually uses them in very specific ways to help in thieving missions that the SIN-dicate orchestrates.
For example, Nephrite will often use the fire dust bullets to blast an emergency escape route for him and his colleges should they get caught. He'll often launch an ice dust bullet at a door to keep the security guards that he often has to sneak past out of a certain room if he believes he'll be in their for a while, and in real emergencies, he'll use steam dust bullets to create a make-shift smoke screen to help in an escape.
Nephrite usually carries back-up ammunition in his vest pockets, though not usually a very large amount. As a result, he is even more dependent on the knife and brass knuckle features of his weapon. However, what Nephrite might be even more reliant on is his opponent having a short temper, and his loud mouth. When caught on a mission, and forced to fight his way out, Nephrite will often taunt his attackers with witty banter and sarcastic remarks meant to irritate and annoy in nearly anyway he can think of.
While this tactic sometimes works, it has also caused him to get into some more difficult situations. On multiple occasion, Nephrite's taunting has resulted in him having to deal with a very angry heavy hitter. While Nephrite is exceptionally good at dodging, he is something of a glass cannon, not being able to take more that two or three really harsh hits. Against a weaker opponent, he can last longer, but all it takes is a handful of well placed punches from a heavy weight and he'll probably be out for the count.
Semblance: Poison Immunity
Nephrite’s semblance gives him the ability to consciously cure himself of toxic substances. By triggering his semblance, his aura creates an antidote effect that counters any toxins currently in his system, with more aura being used to cure more potent poisons. His semblance also consumes more aura to cure more areas of the body. For example, a deadly poison would require more aura to cure than a tranquilizer dart, and it would take less aura to cure if the poison has only afflicted just the arm rather than half the body. Nephrite rarely has to use this semblance because he's actually been poisoned, and more often uses it because it has the added effect of helping him sober up after a long night of drinking.
Likes: Alcoholic beverages, Loud music, Modry, Spicy and/or sour foods
Dislikes: Silence, Bitter food, Kill-joys, Geese
Other Trivia: Doesn't even realize he has a crush on Modry. His weapons are named after the famous gang leaders Al Capone and Bugs Moran. All members of the SIN-dicate have a word that means "sin" somewhere in their name.
