    In reply to Jacinta-Capelety I think option 3 is definitely too much. If I had to choose, I'd lean towards option 1.

    Want help illustrating them maybe? I might be able to help you get some of the thought squared away if you'd like

    Appreciate the offer, but I typically don't illustrate stuff for my characters (regulars of the forum have heard me complain numerous times that I can't draw to save my life). I have a vague idea for the aesthetic of the weapon (the previously mentioned Tron-esque style of mostly black with glowing, brightly colors highlights). I'm also considering making hard light (the thing Velvet's copy weapons seem to be made of) a factor in the design, but I'm not 100% sure yet. It's more a matter of perfecting my mental image of the weapon transformation.

    There actually was one a long time ago. But unfortunately it doesn't see a lot of activity.

    Again, appreciate the offer, but I'd feel bad just accepting a handout piece of art. And with the holidays coming up, I'm probably not gonna be putting money towards commissions for a while. Plus I've got a friend with a drawing style that I really like, and I'm hoping to eventual commission her for art of most of my characters already. ...If she's ever in the mood for RWBY art again that is (she's kinda got thing thing of needing to be in the zone to work on characters for a specific series, and she's kinda been on a Homestuck kick for a while now).

    So after seeing volume 6 episode 3, I have a theory related to dust. I know this is more of a generic thing than an OC thing, but I wanted to share it here because 1. for all I know I may use it as inspiration at some point, and 2. maybe someone here could use this theory as inspiration. I'll keep the whole thing in a spoiler cover in case anyone here has gotten around to watching the episode yet. That being said, here's my theory:

    In my mind, dust has always seemed like the coal of Remnant. It's a mineral that's mined, used as a very common power source, and has very large corporations that control it. Additionally, in the WOR on the Schnee dust company, we learned that working in a dust mine can result in long term health problems, much like working in a coal mine can result in life long lung problems. Based on what we saw in volume 6 episode 3, it seems like dust wasn't around when humanity had magic. Which makes sense. You wouldn't really need a crystal that gives you one type of magic when you already have magic powers in general. But here's where my theory comes in. Coal is a non-renewable resource because it's formed from decayed animal matter.


    What if dust is more like coal than I originally thought? What if, after the god of darkness wiped out humanity 1.0, the ashes they seemed to be turned into eventually formed into the dust in modern day remnant? In the WOR on Dust, Salem says "Dust: by definition it is a naturally occurring energy propellant that can be triggered by the aura of humans and faunas. But in reality it is much, much more.". If Ozpin can retain his magic after reincarnation, and Salem got to keep her magic even though the gods wanted to punish her, and their kids could inherit magic even though they didn't exist until after the "blessing of the gods" that supposedly granted humans magic in the first place was taken away, I can believe that the magic possessed by the OG humans was passed down to the dust that their ashes formed, even if it is only one type of magic per crystal. It would also explain why the aura of humans and faunas can trigger dust. It makes sense to me that a crystal that has magic because it's made from the ashes of people that once possessed magic would be triggered by the same race the crystal once was (and faunas are so close to being human the crystals probably just don't notice a difference).


    Magic has been stated to be tied to the soul after all. Ozpin's magic travels with him from life to life because their souls become intertwined, and Ozpin, Ironwood, Glynda and Qrow all thought they might be able to transfer Amber's maiden powers to Pyhra by giving her Amber's aura, which is essentially her soul. So humans with magic tied to their souls get turned to ash, those ashes eventually turn into magic crystals, and the magic of those crystals is triggered by the souls of other humans. I just feel like this makes a little too much sense to be coincidence. If the show decides to go a different way with it, and their idea is still interesting, I'm willing to drop this theory, but right now, I feel like it just fits together too well!


    TL;DR: DUST. IS. PEOPLE!

    I've just been getting crazy amounts of inspiration over the last month. Normally I can't think of $#!t, but even if I focus solely on the stuff I've come up with for RWBY, I came up with the idea of Symphonic Decree, finalized Azurite's bio, got inspiration for that scythe weapon not too long ago (still kind of a work in progress), and now I just got inspired to make a court jester themed OC.

    In reply to Shadow-elements I like it! It's a simple character, but not everything needs to have a dramatic backstory or whatever. It works for what it is. I also like what you did for the semblance. I could totally see that being in the real show. Not a big fan of the stats and numbers at the bottom, as I can't really do anything with it or gain any new info, since I have nothing to compare it to. Otherwise neat!

    How you know I'm hyped about a new character idea: I actually attempted to draw their outfit! The quality is total $#!t, but for those of you who are curious, here are some rough drawings of my new Jester OC (yes, I colored them in with crayon, don't judge me!). I also made a symbol for him, just because.

    In reply to Shadow-elements This one I feel is a bit weaker. I'm not sure why she needs to be hit to use her semblance; why isn't it just activated upon touch?

    In reply to AnimeAnnemarie didn't think about that I was more so just trying to come up with something and yang was in my head which is probably why it is activated through being hit.

    In reply to Shadow-elements I think it's better to think things over more, and not just picking something just because you wanna pick something. If you don't have an idea yet, just leave it blank and come back to it later.
