And with this, the last of the Grunwald clan has received their new armor upgrades (sorry, Leif and Jade, ranking members only).
For those who don't know who this is:
Height: 195 cm (6’5”)
Weight: 127 kg (280 lbs)
Abilities and Skills:
Lehti is a power-focused physical melee fighter. He thrives in the thick of the fighting, trading blows up close and personal. He dual wields his weapons in both their forms. As shotguns, he sprays the field with dust-augmented shells that have a substantial amount of spread. Burn, frost, and shock dust are his favored types. With his hammers, Lehti is terrifyingly brutal. He savages his opponents with cruel attacks aimed at smashing joints and bones. His intense strength allows him to swing the heavy hammerheards with impressive speed. Compared to his cousins, Lehti has the highest endurance and stamina.
Semblance: Infernal Brand
Lehti’s semblance allows him to “mark” a person or object by touching them. Upon doing so, he infuses a small amount of his own aura into whatever he’s marked, establishing a connection. Once marked, Lehti gains a subconscious awareness of where the marked target is at all times. With enough concentration, he can gain other information about his marked target, like its state or condition, as well as being able to abstract certain sensory information (smells and sounds) from its surroundings. Additionally, if Lehti channels a significant amount of aura into the connection, he can “overload” it. For things like objects or structures, this can damage or weaken their structural integrity. In the case of living things, it causes a great deal of pain (akin to being burned by a metal brand, hence the name) to the point of being incapacitating. The only way for the mark to be removed is for Lehti’s aura to be reduced to zero, or for Lehti to consciously remove the mark. The latter tends to be more common, as Lehti rarely likes keeping track of more than one mark at a time and will often release one before placing another to avoid confusion while tracking a target.
Weapons and Equipment:
Lehti wields the twin Dust-Chambered Shotgun Hammers, Teurastus. The weapons are semi-automatic, and chamber specialized dust-cartridges. In their hammer forms, the dust can be activated by the hammer strike, creating dust-augmented shockwaves. In addition to his hammers, Lehti also wears an elevation training mask most of the time. The mask restricts his breathing, which he believes increases the strength and oxygen capacity of his lungs (though in reality it doesn’t). When the mask is removed, he does gain a substantial boost to his stamina, similar to when Gawain used to remove his weighted clothing. Underneath his clothing, Lehti also wears a body suit that is similar to one Gawain currently wears.
Lehti is a stern and practical man. He favors tried-and-true methods over more artistic or experimental approaches, and believes simplicity is a virtue when it comes to planning. In chaotic situations he has a tendency to assert control via providing leadership. He leads through example, taking charge and making snap-decisions when speed and decisiveness are necessary. Lehti also believes that promotion should come from merit, and frowns on nepotism. And yet, he takes pride in his family because he believes that Grunwalds don’t need nepotism to hold high ranks in society.
In personal interactions, Lehti is blunt and cold. He isn’t as empathetic or sentimental as his cousins or brother, and believes that “protecting the family” doesn’t mean protecting its members, but rather its legacy. A legacy which, according to Lehti, is built on strength, discipline, and determination. Because of this he forms very few personal connections, focusing instead on cultivating an image of himself as an iron warlord, to be feared and respected. And yet, Lehti is violently protective of his little brother (and to a lesser extent, his cousins, even though he sees them as rivals) and will not tolerate dismissive comments or threats against him.
Lehti is the elder son of Linden Grunwald, the head of Grunwald Security’s Vacuo Branch. Raised in the harsh climate of Vacuo, Lehti demonstrated his potential as a huntsman at an early age. Both he and his brother, Leif, were privately trained until they were old enough to enter Shade academy. Unlike his cousin, Erina, Lehti went straight into employment with Grunwald Security upon graduating. In his two years with the company, he has already distinguished himself amongst its soldiers, earning the moniker “Iron Wolf” for his raw physical power and cold personality. Lehti currently holds the rank of Major within Grunwald Security’s armed forces and commands the Second Vacuan Cohort.
