RWBY character ideas
#33743946 - 2 months ago
Hey guys! Been a while, but I finally decided to revamp some of my former Team OC emblems. Below are the former emblems followed by the new ones! Please let me know if these seem any better or not. (Also, yes I know, the last emblem isn't changed at all, but that was simply because I felt it unnecessary for there to be any changes made, aside from the removal of the lettering.)

Yeah, I'm not much for the use of simplistic shapes nor being without some use of symbolism present...
They all bear their weapons represented as to show that they are always prepared to fight on a moment's notice. As for the rest of the symbolism...
Garrison's shows bolts around the symbol, a sure sign that he is bound by a will of steel in a way. If you look, you might notice the symbol itself is an aspen leaf, using Garrison's weapon as the stem. This represents how he fights intuitively for the sake of environment over other, really. What makes this interesting is the fact that he also leads the team, though I don't think I'd have to explain why.
Ravi's is... actually pretty straightforward. A shuriken surrounded by outward-facing structure, all poised as if protecting their center. This points more towards the defensive nature of his Semblance, which makes it stand out from his seemingly offensive approach.
Indigo's is... Hard to explain, really... Then again, so is the character himself. He himself is intended to be... unpredictable for the most part. This is actually where the center section comes in, because you could say the lack of predictability is the highlight of any scene, hence why the center looks something like a film strip. As for his nature, the majority of the emblem is representations of his weapon seemingly scattered, yet structured. A sort of... order to the chaos, if you will.
As for Meredith's emblem, I kept it the same, as it kept the two-color theme and also represents her just as well as any emblem I could ever think of for her. The emblem itself is a curious, incomplete eye around a pattern that includes her weapon; herself, if you will. This represents how she both exerts and avoid certain aspects of attention. Even her Semblance is a reflection of this, which is why this fits so well.
That being said, I've been planning a revamp of my OC emblems in this sort of manner. There are some that I'll be leaving the same, but most should be seeing a change at some point... In any case, did that all make sense, or is there anything that didn't make all that much sense?

This is two halves of two separate ideas so if someone wants to use them, feel free.
So, I was thinking of how one could replicate Pyrrha's semblance, and I got an idea because of it. A character whose weapons are two gauntlets, which each contain electromagnets. Depending on wat they need to do, they can turn on the Magnets with varying amounts of strength, and mess with their opponent. On low strength, you can use them in a similar manner to Pyrrha's semblance, where she makes slight adjustments to the opponent to prevent them from dealing damage. On higher strengths, the gauntlets can attract/repel bullets or even take a weapon straight from the opponent's hands. However, this could cause problems because it can't be focused as easily.
A character with a semblance where they can trade spots with another object, by focusing on the object. If they master this, they could strike out of nowhere, and vanish just to strike again before the opponents can comprehend what's going on. Probably by throwing a ton of pellets into the air, and "teleporting" in and out of combat.

Oh, I guess I missed that bit. Whoops! Well in that case, I would imagine it to be accomplished by a specific mix of Electric and Gravity Dust, not electromagnets. Electromagnets would require an INSANE amount of power for that level of effect, even for the lower end of ability...

So I thought more about my first idea, and I think the gauntlets would work best with a full set of armor, except its on a person who is really short/lean (about the same size as Oscar). The entire armor is powered by electricity/gravity dust, to the point where the person literally cannot move without using it, but in exchange it offers a ton of protection from damage. In that case, the electromagnet effects are just a side-effect of how the armor operates. Instead, the actual weapon is an equally ridiculously large axe. I was thinking of a sword, but not enough people have axes, plus it sells the whole idea of the character better.
The electromagnet effects are just a byproduct of the design of the armor, which was then implemented into it for better convenience. As the armor moves, because it is large, metal, and has current running through it (how else would it be controlled), it creates a magnetic field, which the strength of can be altered by either changing the amount of current flowing (if there's too little current running through, the part of the armor "shuts down" because there isn't enough electricity to power it to move), or by changing the user's speed (the faster the movement, the stronger the field).
Electric Dust still creates electricity, so might as well use principles of electricity to explain the behavior of an armor which relies heavily upon it. I'd imagine this character relies almost entirely on Electric Dust, with a small amount of gravity dust (need to balance things out somehow).

well I'm not sure how i should start this ?but the character was 2 years in the making along with the story and ship design, but i can give a description of him, he is tall around the age of 16 smart and handsome has a personalty made of gold as many personnel has the imagination of a engineer, he
attended northstar aeronautical and combat academy 4 miles west of vale facility and beacon research station.
name: Derek North
previous occupation: junior officer ( still in training)
relatives: john North( 4 gen owner of Northstar corporation and fleet admiral)
status: alive and travailing to location x
eye color: blue
hair color:black (may change)
current occupation: fleet admiral of the northstar fleet and current commander of flag ship N.V.E ruby
nickname: Mr. N or Mr. North
weapon: c96 Mauser molded w/ extended barrel and em capacitor and "north's whisper" ( N.V.E Ruby)
weapon type: Thomson sub machine gun modded w/ extended barrel and heavy rail capacitor
aura color: light blue ( is equipped with personal aura generator )
complexion: white with light tan
outfit: black admiral uniform (northstar) civilian black fedora and black suit w/ red tie)
story and last sighting
A word from the commander light-burg : during the battle at beacon the company CEO and a former member of the white fang had gone missing along with a combine fleet of 100 airships if anyone has information of this disappearance? or the facility's lock down please report to the facility command, thank you
many personnel at vale facility describe Derek North as smart and friendly many have also said that he is generous to many, but before he went missing Derek North signed of on one of his airship designs the N.V.E RUBY a northstar liner (super liner) and began constriction 4 years before the fall at beacon, his last known sighting (4 years before the fall) was at vale facility ship yards in the observation area over looking Ruby's construction workers report seeing North getting kidnapped, later these witnesses went missing as well.
4 years later north was found the cryogenics lab in a capsule still alive and the same age as he was before and same condition as last seen.
when Derek was questioned he said " when i was in this thing, this prison of ice, i woke up in a school i then i walked to one of the class rooms and saw my CO my trainer and my father" north said " and i got to work learning everything i could, i learned from commanding ship to a army from the engineering to metal work, i mean i cant remember any of it but it comes to mind when i want it to"
it was later reported the, after the cct went offline northstar radio techs attempted to use the facility's cct but the power surge caused the the unit to be destroyed.
after the interview a plan was made to take the ruby and randevu? with the sapphire at mistral and then attempted to fined out how they can stop this man from helping the white fang in there revolution?.
he loves ruby( the ship not the girl )
since he designed her and knows how to control her when she fights ( the rudder shifting )
it would be right if North was to command the N.V.E ruby
and he loves his weapons
more will be added depending on reaction
please ask if you like to know more info on the ship, character, facility, or the company

to be honest i'm not into character design but more mechanical and engineering wise
i mean i design 4 airships that are not only used for fighting but for luxury travel
N.P.S. raven queen ( sounds like med way queen)
