CHARACTER

Name: Aperahama Jones (Note: Aperahama is Maori, translates to Father of A Mighty Nation.)

Species: Lion Faunus

Age: 29 years, Second day of the Third Month

Gender: Male

Symbol: A Grimm Nevermore Skull

Occupation: Mercenary/Bounty Hunter/Big Game Hunter

Appearance: Standing at 6'10" in height, broad across the chest and clad in metal plates and studded leather armour and straps Aperahama is a bold, intimidating figure in his own right. But that's before you factor in the fact he is one of those faunus who is so very bestial in appearance that he has no chance of blending in with the crowd as some do.

He is blatantly a faunus, his face a lion's muzzle, scars running across the left hand side and over his eye. Said eye is missing, replaced with an amber embedded eye patch in start contrast to the brilliant blue eye of his right. His teeth are sharp, feline in their nature and he often grins, making full use of the intimidation factor of his slightly elongated canines. Furthermore his hair is a wild, white furred mane, braided with leather straps and trinkets, much like the scraggly beard to the front.

Spoiler:
 

(Faceclaim: Rengar from League of Legends)

History:

In a world where faunus are openly discriminated against for being merely different from humans it comes as no surprise that one born to the far extreme of the scale, so blatantly bestial in appearance would be priority target number one for those seeking nothing more than an easy mark. Yet Aperahama was not your normal cub. Instead he chose to thrive on the conflict, openly seeking fights, standing proud of who he is and what he could accomplish, rather than what he is.

As a result, through his younger years he gained something of a reputation as a take on all comers scrapper, freely throwing himself into fights regardless of who his opponent was. Naturally you'd think this was a great thing for all the Pro-Faunus rights movements and organisations...yet they too ended up on the wrong side of his clawed fists as it didn't matter who he fought. Human, faunus, grimm, as long as they put up a good fight he was happy.

This scrappy nature coninued on into his teenage years and once he had undergone the basic educational standards he chose to drop out, rather than persist into a career as a huntsman. Not for fear of discrimination or opinion but more for fear of boredom. From there he went into the travelling business, going from place to place, picking up job after job, going foot first into the mercenary and bounty hunting lifestyle, albeit with some quirks.

He also tried other careers, all in the name of a good scrap. Soldier for hire, bodyguard, bouncer, gladiatorial pit fighter...but all of these ended up the same way. Boring, stale and dull. So now he simply roams, offering his services as a blade for hire, with scars and tales of his own to tell.

Personality:

Aperahama is a boisterous, loud and lecherous giant of a faunus, open to drinking, scrapping and womanising. He has no shame whatsoever in admiring others, even his foes and giving them encouragement to do better. After all, the stronger the opponent the greater the fight.

He's also naturally infuriating to the Faunus Rights crowd. Blatantly referring to others by animal terms such as 'cub' or 'kitten' and refusing to actually pick one side and stick to it. But with such an extreme and positive personality he has equally extreme funks that come about when things get quiet. He gets bored quick and finds missions where there isn't any sort of great or worthy prey to be disheartening, moping around in doldrums til things do pick up.

Strength:

Aperahama's something of a physical paragon, a predatory expert in melee combat who combines tooth and claw with brutal weaponry and decades of experience. Getting into melee with him is generally seen by most as a bad plan as teeth, claws, knives and other pointy implements can be surprisingly effective when used by a faunus who actually likes to scrap!

Weakness:

Aperahama's fighting style is his greatest weakness. He has minimal ranged capabilities outside of his bolas and furthermore his bolas isn't entirely accurate or reliable due to his poor depth perception due to a missing eye. Furthermore his luxurious mane is a weakness - should it get harmed.

He is also far too proud for his own good, giving opponents a chance to catch up and have a breather, wanting them in the prime of their life...or wanting the biggest prey around as his own personal mark. Of course, this can lead to him being horribly outclassed by his opponent or dragging a fight on far too long for quicker missions.

Semblance: The Thrill of the Hunt - Aperahama thrives off combat. As such the longer a fight goes on the stronger he becomes and the greater his stamina and recovery is. Yet this is countered by the doldrums he is prone to outside of combat or during a particularly dull mission, which can result in him starting off significantly weaker than others in similar situations when a fight breaks out.

WEAPON

Name: Ursa's Remorse

Primary Form: Ursa's Remorse is a large and brutal knife, perhaps more accurately described as a sword, some two and a half to three foot in length. The hilt is decorated with bone, the blade is engraved with kill markings. Its purpose is to stab, cut and slash.

Secondary Form: None

Tertiary Form: None

History: Ursa's Remorse started off originally as a tooth, within the mouth of a rather large Ursa which was subsequently wrestled into the ground by Aperahama during one of his many missions. Of course, the Ursa wrestling kept him away from his teammates and was a source of a serious talking to afterwards...but he won and got a tooth out of it, which was later carved into a blade.


WEAPON

Name: The Lion's Bite

Primary Form: The Lion's Bite is a two-pronged slashing claw strapped across Aperahama's right forearm. It is not particularly decorative or fancy in appearance. Its purpose is to also stab and slash.

Secondary Form: None

Tertiary Form: None

History: The Lion's Bite is a simple weapon and a memory from Aperahama's fleeting career as a pit fighter. It was given to him by Draven Amethyst in recognition of the big cat's prowess and also as a the result of a bet he won. Draven learned that day you never bet against the woman scorned.Not without a Plan B anyhow.


WEAPON

Name: Pride

Primary Form: A three-ball bolas consisting of metal ball bearings and a leather strip binding them together. You throw it. You trip things. In Aperahama's case you throw it and often miss your target. A lot. That's what having only one eye does for you.

Secondary Form: None

Tertiary Form:  None

History: Bolas don't have histories. If they did, they would be boring.

Your history doesn't appear to mention how you lost an eye. But it is easy to assume it was in one of the million battles you've been in.

But regardless, Approval +1

Posting a reply so others can see as discussed. The How I Lost My Eye story is going to be a sort of quirk.

A different story every time its told, with completely different details. Even to the same people.

From the sounds of it you only have one claw. Does he have a preference on which are it is worn? If not be sure to include that while in combat.

Also. how long is Ursa's Remorse? since you say it's a knife best described as a sword.
