CHARACTER

Name: Sonny Schwartz. (Name derived from sonne-sun-and schwarz-black.)

Age: 17 (DOB: 6/21)

Gender: Male

Symbol: Black, pointed cross with another yellow one underneath. Resembling a solar eclipse.

Occupation: Student at Beacon.

Appearance: 5'8. A thin build with 137 lbs. in him. Black hair with yellow eyes. Small scar on his jaw.  Heavy armor but a small amount of it. A right wrist guard and high-reaching left shoulder pad with his symbol on it. Plain long sleeve shirt. Chain on the right side of his pants hanging onto a pocket watch. His color scheme is black and gold, once more referencing back to his 'black sun' name. Draped over his back is a golden cape. While his weapons are sheathed though, he likes to keep it over his right side, instead if his back.

History: His family has always been associated with huntsman and huntresses so it was only natural that he himself would strive to and, one day, become a huntsman. It is in his blood. Throughout his time at Signal Academy, he excelled at subjects having to do with semblance and weaponry, and even graduated top of his class in tactics, but often fell behind in other subjects.

Personality: His personality resembles a knight's. Always wanting to put others first when they go through hardship with no fault of their own. While he doesn't dare attempt anything illegal or wrong, he absolutely loves acting shady when it's for a good cause and often implements it into his use of tactics and fighting style. While there are those who have a huge fear of death, Sonny has a huge will to live.

Strength: His strength comes from his conservative mentality. Never willing to budge. It creates a lack of fear inside of him and leaves him with the will to stand up for himself toward others and the likes of the dangerous Creatures of Grimm that lurk outside of civilization. Combined with his use in tactics, it forms up his fighting style of only striking when his enemies are vulnerable. Preferring to use his shield to block or stun the enemy before striking to make it hard for a second attack to be made.
While he has a lighter weight, he likes to use his height and natural endurance to provide a brick wall-style of combat when with-shield and a light, quick style.

Weakness: His weakness is his sense of dignity. While he'll take something like a dare to walk around in his underwear without any sweat, he'll be sure to break his composure at the possibility of physical or emotional harm to someone he cares for. This leads to a severe lack in tactic usage and could get him killed one day.
The same can be said for when he himself is mocked or insulted, however it doesn't make him abandon all logic. It just makes him lose his cool, erasing a significant amount of efficiency in his combat thinking and maneuvering. Having two older brothers made sure he was to forever have a short temper for childish taunts.
His light body is a hindrance. Without his shield, since he prefers to separate his spear, he is quite easy to blow over for any opponent that chooses a charge tactic-the obvious choice for a larger Creature of Grimm. One shove could knock him back and stun him quite easily.

Semblance: While not having an uncommon amount of aura, he does have more than average. This stems from his shear will to live while not being largely afraid of death. As for his semblance, he has the ability to decrease and increase force. He may not be able to come even close to stopping, lets say, the swing of a hammer but he can make it less painful and a little easier on his aura. He can also push something a little harder. For instance, he can swing his weapon toward an opponent and make it hurt just a bit more than it should. The weakness to this power, however, is that it is effected by surface area. A cinder block would be much easier to slow than a blade-something he can hardly do anything about. Throughout his time honing his power, he learned to extend it and do things like make it harder for opponents to move through continuously using it on their muscles and joints. Another weakness of this, though, is it can drain his aura easily if brought upon more than one enemy. That is, if he can concentrate that hard.
During his use of his weapon's tertiary form in a high-energy moment, his aura emanates a golden or black color around his body, depending on his mood. For high morale/positive mood, he glows a golden color. For an angry/sorrowful mood, he glows black.

WEAPON

Name: Sonny's main weapon is called 'Licht Hecht' (Light Pike).

Primary Form: It's primary form is a simple spear for use in stabbing and slicing.

Secondary Form: Secondary form how it is sheathed. It loosens in the middle to collapse in half and be put on the back.

Tertiary Form: Tertiary form is for the loss of his other weapon. The middle can separate the weapon into two halves. The lower half is taken by the left hand and is used for bludgeoning enemies. The top half is taken by the right hand and is used for slicing and stabbing. When using the tertiary form, Sonny removes his armor and cape for maximum flexibility and seems to experience a spike in morale. Preferring lightning-fast strikes to tank tactics. However, he does not shake the 'strike when vulnerable' tactic. Instead, he adds a tactic to it. Overwhelm the target with quick strikes from both halves of his weapon and, when the target loses both morale and concentration, start making strikes meant to defeat.

Name: His secondary weapon is called 'Luna' (derived from lune-moon).

Primary Form: It's primary form is a large, round shield the size of an ancient spartan's. In it's primary form, it seems nearly impossible to face head-on. The weight and size of it makes for a weapon of its own. A hit with the side would result in the enemy (if human) getting Kronwalled [(v.)-To smash, level, waste, ravage, devastate, destroy, demolish, raze, or imply reducing a thing to uselessness. To defeat completely.]
It is also a semi-automatic rifle. Chambering a .308 round (or a 7.62X51), making it capable of punching through a cinder block wall and still devastating the target behind it. The magazine protrudes from underneath the shield, by the arm. When lifted into a defensive stance, the mag goes in underneath the arm while the bolt catch and shell release is located over the arm. The trigger is controlled by the left hand under the shield.

Secondary Form: Its second form is simply its way of sheathing. The bottom three panels circularly slide clockwise until they line up with the top three panels. The two upper panels then slide into the two middle panels which slide into the lower panels and those slide into the center part of the shield. Despite it's complex build, it is nearly as durable as a shield that would be completely whole.

History: Both weapons were manufactured by his own hands during his earlier school life and have been his weapons of choice ever since. Increasing their sizes as he grew. The small scar on his jaw was actually from when he first test-fired Luna. Safe to say the first thing he did after getting two stitches was design a recoil reducing spring system and mount it on the shield.

I'd like to see a bit more in weaknesses. Generally we shoot for at least one weakness that would show up in one on one combat. Everything else should be okay, though.

Indeed. I see the problem.
Correcting.

...

I think it's corrected. Does it have to be something physical or is the mental/emotional weakness I placed upon him fine?

Generally we look for a physical weakness of some sort, but I'll let another modmin decide. You have my approval, though.

Yeah, I think I'd like to see some kind of physical weakness added. Maybe something related to his physical strength or stamina to counter his mental tenacity.

Noted.
Edited.
Hopefully the mentioning of his body weight counters his strong mental state.

If I may add one thing that contributes to his personality that does not effect performance (just expresses the experience a little more when he is at his fiercest moments:
Glows either black or gold from his aura when using Licht Hecht's tertiary form in high-energy or tense moments. Color depending on mood.
High morale/positive mood: Golden
Angry/sorrowful mood: Black

-Sorry, had just thought of it as an interesting little idea so I thought I'd throw it in there.

Just add it into the profile so it can be considered. If that was the only thing added I think my approval would stick.

Yep, that's all. Just a little character trait addition. Doesn't effect combat. Just for amping up the moments that require some amping up.
