Jaques FC


History:
Jaq's life was far from average. His father is a hunter and a mortician, known as "le Faucheur". His mother, now deceased, was known as "la dame diable". His mother owned a grand total of 13 haunted houses and passed one of them down to her son thus how he makes his money. his father is also teaching him how to properly care for the bodies of the dead. On the rare occasion where his father has to kill someone, he will take the body afterwards and prepare it with Jaq for funerals. Aside from taking an odd amount of joy in his job, his father loves jokes especially those of the dead, if you're able to make him laugh, you will automatically be in his good graces even if he needs to kill you. He will kill you with great pleasure and no ill will, Jaq also shares this trait.
         His father tends to punctuate his words with sweeping gestures and creepy giggles, and spends a considerable deal of time inside of coffins to "test them out". He takes joy in frightening others, as he intentionally acts in a disconcerting manner to provoke a reaction. His father frequently refers to the deceased as his "guests," and it is his hobby to remove organs from his "guests" for research. His mother was also quite the odd one, she was an intensely sadistic woman with brutal, violent tendencies. She was highly intelligent, but could be easily distracted, and had a fierce and dangerous temper, a trait that she shares with her husband and son. Despite her cruel personality, she was not incapable of feeling affection for others and appeared to care a lot about her family.
        Both of Jaques' parents inspired him to become a hunter much like they were. Despite the fact they they are infamous for their recklessness and vulgarity, his parents were considered masters of their crafts. Other hunters of their generation will reluctantly admit that they are highly skilled. Jaq's mother died right in front of his eyes when she was on a job to hunt down a large pack of Beowolf that had ravaged a small village. She had cleared the creatures and was waiting for him to clean up the bloody mess, Since the job was over she wasn't paying any attention and stepped on a trap. As soon as she had mistakenly stepped on said  trap she looked at Jaq. They both looked at each other with a perplexed look on their faces and his mother proceeded to say "Oh dear. This doesn't look good at all" before getting blown up right before his very eyes. A now bloodied Jaques, stared at the blast area covered in guts, blood and what remained of his mother, it took him a few seconds to process what had just happened and then he started cracking up as if it were the funniest joke in the world. He proceeded to collect the remains and contact his father to deliver the news... Needless to say that he too thought it was morbidly hilarious. His mother was then cremated and the funeral service proved to be extremely unorthodox as it was more like a congratulatory ceremony, praising her on reaching the end and finally being free from the shackles of the body. It was at that ceremony where Jaques began to work to take her place in the huntsman realm.

Personality:
Jaques is exceptionally intrigued by the aspect of death and all things metaphysical. He finds the concept of death mysterious, and in his own words "well worth the wait". He loves the idea of magic, ghosts and whatnot, making him a charmingly whimsical character. He's easy to get along with and much like his father he loves jokes, especially those about the dead. He enjoys frightening other people and playing pranks, he can be very light hearted, quirky, and mischievous, as well relaxed, carefree, serious, attentive and more. He loves making new friends and is very playful. He has a very complex mind, and is very intelligent but he doesn't show it. When it comes to rivals and bullies, he is a no nonsense kind of guy. he likes to commend people who look past his makeup because he feels as though, like himself, those who ignore his style and preferences bear no ill judgement. He doesn't share much of his parents personalities, meaning less intense and more relaxed. Stygian loves all things creepy, disturbing, twisted and morbid, although he usually speaks with a relaxed and soft tone, dark topics will tend to excite him and he will start to speak as his father does. When angered he will take on the bloodthirsty sadistic traits of his mother, while at the same time becoming exceptionally flamboyant. Overall Stygian is a natural leader and tends to take charge in tricky situations. He can be a little too friendly, but if one gets on his bad side, they will find themselves to be the target of his pranks, the butt of his jokes, and the main topic of his sarcasm.  

Strengths:
He's a very fit individual. Exceptionally skilled at free-running He's stronger than average, being able to lift a little over twice his body weight, and he can certainly take a pretty hard hit. however he doesn't rely on his physical abilities, intelligence and use of Glyphs are his specialty, he's got a good variety of elemental attacks at his disposal as well as an okay defense. he is skilled in using a Scythe as his weapon but this is only when he's in a tight pinch, otherwise he just uses it's primary form. He is able to take charge when needed, and he knows when he's in over his head. His ability to get along well with just about anyone is also a good strength for him as he enjoys working working with others, though he fares just as well on his own.  

Weaknesses:
he tends to be very reckless, he doesn't see collateral damage as a big deal, and when he gets excited he begins to display a complete disregard for the safety of others. He is also a big fan of taunting his opponents, often using sarcasm to make fun of them. He has been known to not take tasks seriously. When he gets excited in a fight his attention span decreases significantly, he'll begin to conversate with his opponent, leading to him having several monologues throughout the fight. When he gets into situations where he has to use his weapon he usually get so excited that he will completely disregard even his own safety and forget to defend at all. Much like his mother, the intensity of violence will excite him so much so that he seems to be aroused by it. It is also possible for Jaques to develop a crush on someone just based on how vicious they are in a fight, as an example, he once thought he was falling in love with an upper class student at signal, who detested him to the point of viciously insulting and physically abusing him whenever he got close, and still he was obsessed with him for a long period of time. Socially he has little to no concept of personal space, and his choice of attire is far from accepted by social standards, his appearance alone is usually enough to make people want to keep their distance. Overall he severely lacks in his defensive capabilities as his only real defense is one of his glyphs. He's sensitive to loud noises, His lack of defense leaves him vulnerable on all sides except for the front, he cannot Move when his offensive glyphs are being used. Because of his use of glyphs in combat, his reaction time is somewhat sluggish, and finally, while he's certainly skilled with his scythe he can't exactly defend himself in close combat thus he is highly vulnerable to physical blows.

Semblance: glyphs

Jaques uses glyphs to fight, he also uses white glyphs in tandem with his free running to jump around and propel him in certain directions.

BEWM!:
A ranged explosive attack, A red glyph forms in front of M.B.P.G's mouth and a fire ball fan out from the center and converge onto the target creating a big explosion upon impact. However the target must be within 75 feet or it will not work. This Cannot target multiple people but Stygian can control it's direction with M.B.P.G. Alternatively he can use this to increase the cutting power of a single slash with the blade of his scythe three fold.

CRACKOW!:
A ranged electric attack. A purple glyph forms in front of M.B.P.G's mouth sending an electric bolt surging through the air towards the target this attack can be used to stun or for lethal electrocution. This attack has the most ranged of all reaching up to 200 yards but it only goes in one direction. Alternatively, he can use this to electrically charge the blade of his Scythe for a deadly attack.

RATATAT!!:
A ranged ice attack. A light blue glyph forms in front of M.B.P.G's mouth sending out a steady stream of ice shards to cut up the opponent. this attack is used to cause physical damage, and only reaches up to 50ft in distance, with a 3 foot spray diameter. Any farther and the ice just melts. Alternatively he could pound the base of his scythe on the ground to create a freezing shock wave that reaches a distance of 25 feet.

STOP!:
A defensive barrier glyph forms in front of M.B.P.G's mouth reaching up to 6 feet in diameter, however once active, Stygian cannot move until he cancels it, the barrier does not create a force field therefore he is still vulnerable from other directions.

The glyphs cannot be placed remotely. Although he may be inclined to learn more, Jaques is quite satisfied with his arsenal, and if all else fails, he'll be more than happy to use the dust to power up his scythe.


WEAPON

Name: Mr. Boney Pants Guy

Primary Form:
At first glance it's a regular old staff, 3/4 of the way up the pole turns into a spinal chord with the upper half of a torso complete with arms and hands put together by the neck as if it's praying. There is a skull facing upwards with it's mouth wide open.

Secondary Form:
There is a Blade hidden at the base of the back of the neck that comes out to turn the staff into a scythe with a serrated edge that buzzes much like a saw.  Blade itself works on a sort of rotating pivot lock mechanism, that has 3 settings, one where the blade can point straight upwards, another where it rotates to make the staff into a scythe and finally one where the blade would rotate downwards and conceal the sharp edge of the blade itself into a slit in the spine of the staff.

History:
Mr. Boney Pants Guy is Jaques' custom made reinforced Titanium scythe/staff, he forged it himself one night while trying to make a good prop for his haunted house, however he ended up liking the way it looked as a weapon and decided to re-forge it to be used in various forms of combat. the skeleton is designed to utilize dust and act as a catalyst for the glyphs. The skull's face is pointed upwards with it's mouth open, he uses that end to focus, so that he can aim his glyphs as he see's fit. Stygian has named his Glyphs as sound effects to express their elemental capabilities, he refers to each glyph as a "spell and although he knows it's not necessary he likes to call out the names of these "spells" because it makes it look and sound "cooler".

Main concern I have is the weapon. I'm not sure about the Aluminum part since it might break when it clashes with other weapons though that's up to you to decide if you'll keep it or not. I can't really visualize a large scythe head popping out of the weapon, please do enlighten.

I Decided to change it to titanium. The way i pictured the Scythe blade was having the Blade itself work on a sort of rotating pivot lock mechanism, that has 3 settings, one where the blade can point straight upwards, another where it rotates to make the staff into a conventional scythe and the other where the blade would rotate downwards and conceal the sharp edge of the blade itself into a slit in the spine of the staff. although i had a bit of trouble figuring out how to explain it until you finally mentioned it, so thank you for asking and indirectly helping me figure out this issue.
