PostSubject: Raven Violette   Sat Mar 15, 2014 12:20 am


Name: Raven Violette

Age: 21

Gender: Male

Symbol: A black unicorn's head with violet eyes and a segmented horn. The hair on the back curves into a single point.

Occupation: Huntsman, part-time pro skater

Appearance: At 5'11 and weighing in at 147 lbs, Violette is not really a special sight to behold when it comes to size. The Rouge warrior's jacket of his extended family (white, signifying his status of grimm being his main quarry) is what gives him respect from those who know of the Rouge family and its branching families. The style he wears this jacket is snapping every button except for the bottom one. Raven's personal crest is positioned on the bottom of the left flap, the spot for every warrior in the Rouge family-save the head of the family which currently is Spencer's grandfather. Has naturally, very messy, black hair and violet eyes. Often wears a violet bandanna and rarely shows his face underneath. His facial hair is surprisingly kept neat and, other than a soul patch on the thicker side, has no stray facial hair. Usually wears a pair of black skater shoes, violet pants, black shirt with violet chain pattern running diagonal across the front and back sides, violet fingerless gloves, military right knee pad, a drop pouch on his right thigh for storage of three magazines and a fabric belt with two rows of metal rings around. Raven always has his knife on him and the sheath is located on his forearm and reaches up to just above his elbow. The butt of the knife ends just under his wrist.

"Another woman handed her son his shield, and exhorted him: 'Son, either with this or on this.'"

Raven Violette is known for his bravery among the new hunter-warriors. Willing to stand up to both Creatures of Grimm and human enemies alike, he is often put on hunter missions involving human foes when they come along because of him giving a 'no preference' answer to the topic of missions and his choice of silent tactics and weaponry. His extended family sees him as a true warrior and an inspiration to the younger men of the family.
This is far from the truth, though. The pyramid of false that builds upon him.
Raven was born into the Violette family and is an only child. His father, a retired member of Vale's Royal Navy. His mother, a woman of the Rouge family, bred to be a housewife and to raise warrior children, much like the Spartan culture. A tough-as-nails woman, she often pushed Raven too hard and at a young age too. Age four. Sure, the mothers of the large Rouge family were all tough but most of the male children had no trouble with them, as it was in their blood and it was a dominant trait. Unlike his extended family, Raven's traits were recessive like his personality. Always unwilling to do as much as the average warrior of the family. Always frightened of the consequences of danger. It was fine with the rest of the family (they love their family) but Raven's mother was not satisfied. His father even had to get between Raven's mother and Raven on more than one occasion. Then, at 14, he had gone on a walk with another cousin and the young Spencer, then 10. While fooling around in the Emerald Forest, the three boys encountered a king taijitu. Both fearing for his life (rightfully so) and his two family members, Raven started to run away with the other two. Spencer was having none of it, though. He grabbed Ravens carbine and managed to take down Goliath as only a little David while Raven did little. Upon return, they reported the incident to the family and went to their homes. Raven's mother would not even speak to him other than to simply call him a bastard child and not worthy of the Rouge heritage. From that day on, Raven vowed to counter his fears. He forged his current knife, Bravoure, and dove head first into activities and training. He also took up skateboarding and eventually got to pro-level at it. He never truly got over his fears, save for skateboarding, but he continues to push himself to this day and it drives him mad. He has killed human enemies in the past and as a result can have violent tendencies.
Violent Tendencies:

Personality: Practically mute when talking to someone new and quiet when talking to someone he knows, he is a silent warrior. Not because he 'prefers to let his actions do the talking' but because he is afraid of saying something stupid. He is very self-conscious. Underneath his wall of quiet and fear, he is mature and collected when it comes to other people. Just not himself. However, make him angry and he will likely get a violent tendency. The only way one can really make him angry is bullying. Only his mother has the talent to bully him and instill legitimate terror inside of him.

Strength: His attitude on fear is both a gift and a curse. In the gift side of it, he is able to stand up to enemies.
If he encounters bully, his fears toward that person disappear and he is able to put the full extent of his power upon them.
Raven has a natural talent for silence. Not just of the tongue but with the rest of his body as well. His combat style and weapons are based around this and he uses the talent to his full extend to strike targets before he is noticed. This talent is actually a passive effect of his semblance.

Weakness: The curse side of his fear is the fact that he is unable to perform his best under his massive amount of stress.
His fear doubles when alone for normal life events and quadruples when alone against Creatures of Grimm.
Raven lacks strong melee weapons. His only defense is a long bayonet attached to the bottom of his carbine and his knife.

Semblance: The ability to balance to a supernatural extent. When activated, he can dodge quite easily and use his weapons in an incredibly stable fighting style. When on pavement, Raven will often extend his skateboard and ride it while fighting. For an idea on his semblance's limits, the very best he can do is equivalent to a quick 'MSU drum major back bend.' For the limit on passive stability, he can ride his skateboard and fire Faire Taire. Things like the back bend cost approximately 5% of his aura for an approximate total of 20 quick movements involving heavy balance. Factor in the little bit of aura used when Raven is in need of higher stability and it becomes a little less. It all depends on the extent of the tricks used.


Name: Faire Taire ('to make quiet')

Primary Form: A silenced carbine with a long bayonet. Chambering a 7.62x39 round, the gun is able to puncture cover quite easily, though the projectile's direction becomes unpredictable after penetrating something like a car door or any bit of steel cover with a similar amount of thickness. Charging handle is located on the right side of the weapon's body and the bolt catch is located on the left side of the weapon body. Firing mode switch is located just over the grip on the weapon.
20-round mag. Three are kept on his right leg and six more are kept in a bandolier under his jacket (when he wears it).
Faire Taire:

Secondary Form: For storage, the bayonet slides back and up partway into the barrel jacket. Two square pieces just above the trigger fold down to hide the trigger and the stock flips closed over the length of the rifle to divide the length in half. In this form, Raven generally keeps Faire Taire under his right jacket flap.

Closed position:

History: Raven's trademark weapon. Designed for it's ruggedness and compact size while still packing a punch. Raven had created it when he was 13 and since he could not get used to the recoil amount in his tender age, he has always preferred semi-automatic fire even though he is strong enough to more accurately fire it in full auto. His previous weapon was a light caliber, .22 semi-automatic rifle that he used ever since he was four years-old.


Name: Bravoure ('bravery')

Primary Form: A simple Ka-Bar style combat survival/utility knife. The knife features a 1095 carbon steel clip point blade with the inscription 'Intrépide' near the hilt of the blade. Upon the grip is a pointer finger ring for better grip. The rounded butt is designed to be used as a bludgeoning tool. Only used as a last resort weapon and for utilities. His style is very professional (other than his tendency to spin the knife around his finger in the ring) as a result of learning from his cousin (Spencer's eldest brother), a former member of Vale's Royal Marine Corps, how to fight with knives.

History: Raven forged this blade himself after his disgrace to the family as a way to keep himself strong. He named it 'Bravery' and put the inscription 'Fearless' upon the blade as a way to fight his fears. As a way to scrape together whatever mental strength he has to fight and defend himself.
