CHARACTER

Name:
Cassidy Nyanza

Age:
19

Gender:
Male

Species:
Spider Monkey Faunus

Symbol:
None yet

Occupation:
Third year student at Beacon

Appearance:
Simply put, Cassidy looks like a girl.  He has a heart-shaped face, small nose, and somewhat large eyes.  He is 5’7” tall, weighing 138 pounds.  While he looks fairly thin, he’s a bit stronger than one might assume at first glance.  The hair that reaches down to his lower back is brown and somewhat messy but clean, the color matching his faunus tail’s fur.  His skin is somewhat tan, while his eyes are a dark red/maroon color.

Typically, he wears a light green t-shirt that exposes his stomach, with an unzipped black jacket over top.  His jeans are dark blue and somewhat baggy, with multiple holes and tears in them.  In combat situations, his jacket would be closed, concealing the chestplate that is hidden underneath.  Besides that, he doesn’t wear any armor, because he doubts that any enemy would be able to get close to him.  Which is probably wrong.

History:
Cassidy was born in the city of Vale, child of Brenden Nyanza, who was a rich man, and Elva Nyanza, a semi-famous Huntress.  An upper class family, they owned a mansion, along with a couple of small businesses.  Brenden, after having a complete mental breakdown and dying in a high speed car chase, in which he drove a delivery truck that he hijacked, gave all of his belongings to Elva.  In the event of her own death, everything would go to Cassidy, their only child.  Because of his sexuality, Cassidy most likely won’t be having children, so he will be the last member of the Nyanza family, at least by blood.

He aimed to become a Huntsmen, being homeschooled by his mother until the age of 17.  His life during this time was fairly normal, and occasionally dull.  As Elva grew ill, Cassidy decided to continue the training at Beacon, successfully getting in and being assigned to team NAVY.  A few years in, however, things became difficult for the team.  Two of the members began to hate each other due to some stupid conflicts, eventually growing into a full on battle.  One came out with a missing leg, the other with multiple shattered bones.  Both were expelled, leaving Cassidy and his remaining teammate, both in search of their own new teams.

Personality:
While not exactly socially awkward, Cassidy doesn’t talk much.  He is a generally calm and polite person, hardly ever getting angry.  At the most, he could become slightly irritated, only if someone were to be constantly bugging him, or just being an asshole.  He often acts like a girl, and due to his appearance, most would assume that he is when they first meet him.  Being very intelligent, his grades tend to be straight A’s, with only the occasional B.  Despite being born in an upper family, he sees himself as the same as everyone else, whether they are faunus or human.

Strengths:
Cassidy is very smart, giving him a great advantage over all the stupid kids at Beacon which tend to be pretty common.  His weapons allow him to be extremely effective from a distance, and occasionally short ranged, only if necessary.  Being a spider monkey faunus, his tail is prehensile, almost as good as a third limb.  It isn’t strong enough to lift a third weapon or anything, but it can be used to lift smaller objects when his hands are occupied by his weapons.  Due to mostly fighting from a distance, he can support his teammates very well.

Weaknesses:
While he isn’t bad at fighting, he often overestimates his own abilities, often getting himself into fights that he will most likely lose.  If the opponent is quick and very effective at close range, he will have difficulty fighting them, as his weapons are made for medium to long ranged attacks.  He can’t block attacks very well, only being able to rely on his chestplate, aura, and shielding himself with his guns if he must.  Since he is mostly a support fighter, fighting on his own is not something he is very skilled at, and will often lose any 1v1 battles.  While being insulted won’t usually make him angry, it will easily affect his self-esteem, or just make him very upset.

Semblance:
Cassidy’s semblance allows him to shut out any noise, calm his mind, and slow his breathing down in less than a second.  In battle, this allows him to focus on a single target, without any distraction.  When out of combat, he can use it for meditation, or just ignoring any noisy roommates.  Of course, this is hardly useful while in combat with multiple opponents.  He won’t be able to hear anyone else approaching, leaving him open to attacks from a target that he doesn’t notice.  In combat, it uses up his aura much quicker than if it were during something casual, as his mind would be more active, along with his breathing being more rapid.

WEAPON

Name:
Aidhm and Scaoil

Primary Form:
Each weapon is a large, steel cannon that is worn around the arm, ending right before the elbows.  Aidhm, the left cannon, can hold a large amount of shotgun shells, while Scaoil, the right, typically contains fire, ice, or electric dust. As it is used for long range, it can support attachments like a laser pointer or scope.  The shots are powerful but slow, which is mostly made up for by having two.  But, since they entirely cover the user’s forearms, use of hands while in battle is impossible.  Cassidy’s only way around this is the use of his tail, though it isn’t nearly as good as an actual limb.

Image for reference

Secondary Form:
N/A

Tertiary Form:
N/A

History:
Cassidy originally had two handheld guns as weapons, but due to his fighting style, they were not very effective.  After coming to Beacon, he created Aidhm and Scaoil, because arm cannons are awesome.

Overall, looks like a solid profile. That said, I think a little more detail in his appearance would also do some good. Define facial structure, mainly. Make it so we can vividly imagine how he looks without having to rely on visual media.

I'm going to have to ask you to pick on Faunus species or the other. I simply cannot get behind a hybrid Faunus, especially an insect/mammal hybrid. 2/2 and moved.
