    Hm, I don’t mind helping, and it’s possible as long as she was within Vacuo at one time, I do plan to have him travel, but still. S far as things go, she uses a claymore, maybe a confident gal? Someone whose rather bright and cheerful? Loves a good thrill? Companionship? Maybe someone with a rather cold personality? She doesn’t trust people so much, if she sees not in an academy, but what do you like in people, or what do you see her as? A personality is determined first and then a backstory is made.

    This was my idea for her personality.


    Selene is very childish throwing tantrums or harming others when she doesn't get her way.
    She hates following orders and prefers to act on her own will.
    This includes jumping headfirst into a fight without thinking
    ahead of time and doesn't take the consequences of her actions into account.
    When something doesn't workout she pins the blame on others. The only way to
    calm her down is to give into her desires or a firm smack to the head. She hates doing more work than what's required which leads to her being very lazy.

    Hm, childish while also actually harming others if she doesn’t get her way, also hates listening, and acts on her own. So she’s a stubborn girl who blames anyone, even if she messes up, and she also doesn’t think think on her actions, so I’d say this isn’t so bad, and being lazy also weakens her combat ability, so maybe after meeting Henry she’d realize she needs to train? I’m not sure whether they’d help each other or end up fighting, but I can tell you she’d easily stir up Hyde. Personality doesn’t seem bad at all to

    Maybe henry is the only person who's able to keep selene in check and act as an older brother figure.

    Hm, he’d definitely try, but he’s also probably worried about himself a bit in case he goes off the rails, but even Hyde would protect her if it came up. As far as things go, Henry would definitely keep her in check, although I’d say he’d take a different path but he’d give her advice whenever and check in her obviously.

    Maybe selene could've been apart of his surrogate family and became upset after he left.

    here's an update of selene's personality.

    She hates doing more work than what's required which leads to her being very lazy. When selene isn't being childish she's quite cheerful and fun loving
    selene is often quickly angered when she's teased for being a lesbian.

    So you’re saying she’d be part of the bandit group along with him and they were probably close, but she may hold a grudge or simply be upset by the fact she abandoned her and the group? It’s a possibility, but what’s her story? How’d she end up where she is? She Vacuo material? Atlas? Vale? Mistral? Ya name it, ya know?

    Backstory idea: Selene was born to a poor income family when she was young her village was raided by bandits. Selene was forced to watch her parents die as they fought back against the bandits. That was the day she discovered her semblance using her newly acquired power she set several bandits aflame. But she was quickly overwhelmed and knocked out after awakening the bandits gave her two choices join them or die. She chose death but henry stopped his comrades from killing her because he saw potential in her. Since than the two have been very close henry was the one who helped selene design and built her weapon. He even trained her but training sessions usually didn't go according to plan due to selene's stubbornness and childish attitude.

    I’d say that the bandits would’ve wanted to kill her, although wanting her for a semblance, but I believe Henry would step in because he didn’t want more people to die, especially a kid, so it’s make sense that he grows up with her, and while Henry is someone who’d help her with her weapon, I honestly don’t know about Hyde who’d rather get rid of her since he’d be the kne training her with how he fights, but Henry would have more control. I’m fine with that though, not bad really.

    The reason I thought they would want selene for her semblance is because of how useful it could be.

    quick question for any polearm weapon experts...


    A character of mine uses a glaive, but on occaision, he uses it like a spear as well. Would a glaive be good for throwing, or no?

    I'd say that they'd want her just because she has her aura unlocked, and any kid with aura unlocked is a good asset to have and raise. Even then, this is speculation, cause I'd want Henry to build bonds as well as Hyde, I'm just making sure your character isn' too dependent. She does have to have a story of her own, ya know?

    It depends on how well balanced it is. Since a glaive is typically a heavy blade on a long shaft, it probably wouldn't be properly balanced for throwing. That doesn't stop people from throwing their weapons though, particularly as an act of desperation.

    I'd say yes, but it'd be far less effective than a spear or a javelin since the blade is so heavy. It wouldn't be able to travel as far or pierce as well.

    I want to get some opinions on a small portion of a rough concept for my OC Adler Thorn; I'll appreciate some feedback. :)


    Name: Adler Thorn

    Color: Forest Green

    Allusion: David "Davy" Crockett

    Affiliation: Adler is a student with the rest of his team, CRNT, at Beacon Academy.

    Age: 17

    Species: Faunas

    Faunas type: Eagle, the trait he has is Eagle wings on his back.

    Hair: Spiky and Dark Red (this will probably change)

    Eyes: Normally Dark Brown but will change depending on his mood/emotions. Blue = Happy, Red = Angry, Lavender Purple = Calm, Green = Restless, Annoyed, and Nervous, Pink = Loving, Raisin Purple = Sadness or Pain, Golden Yellow = Fear.

    Height: 5'9"

    Weight: 156 pounds

    Symbol: A Bloody Eagle wing.

    Weapon: Bleeding Talons, talon like bladed boots on Adler's feet (3 claws on the front and one in the back on the heel), Adler also laces the blades with different types of toxins such as Arsenic, Cyanide, and Strychnine, that he makes from certain plants to use against Grimm or even other people.

    Semblance: I'm currently brainstorming different things but right now I have an idea about Adler manipulating the land around him or even using Dust crystals to make a trap for Grimm or other people. Any thoughts or ideas on how I could use this?


    So that's what I have on Adler right now, I'm still going through different things with him but I did want to get some opinions on what I have here, I will also answer any questions the best I can.

    I wanted something to express his moods/emotions, Adler has a very mono-toned personality that I'm still trying to work out; so in order to tell what emotion he's feeling I wanted his eyes to be the key hint for that.

    Or you could just describe how he feels. You don't appear to be using any sort of visual medium, so having a visual hint for his emotions seems pointless.
