CHARACTER

Name: Lunalynn Zather

Age: 18

Gender: Female

Symbol: Destiny

Occupation: Student of Beacon, year two.

Appearance: Lunalynn has shiny, soft, white hair, that she keeps tied in a french braid. Her eyes are pale pink, and she has a crescent moon shaped sliver missing from her right pupil. Her skin is very pale, almost alabaster in color. Lunalynn has a fairly average build, being 5 foot, 5 inches tall. She has a relatively small bust, something she finds extremely unfortunate. She weighs roughly 120 lbs, and has fairly lean muscles. Lunalynn wears a skintight, sleeveless, midnight blue catsuit, with similar colored knee high boots and fingerless gloves. Above her catsuit, she tends to wear a light silver travel cloak with a hood, giving her an almost ghostly appearance at night. If anyone were to see her without her catsuit on, they would see a tattoo of the phases of the moon running down her spine.

History: Lunalynn was born to Gabriel Zather and Emilia Cereval, at exactly midnight, on the first day of the year. For the first two years of her life, she never made a sound or intentionally opened her eyes. The doctors her parents hired to try to find out why always ended up empty handed, saying she 'just doesn't want to'. At exactly midnight on the day of her second birthday, she woke up crying, eyes wide open. It was then that her parents noticed the crescent moon shaped sliver missing from her pupil. From that night on, she had a fairly normal childhood, though with her father working at his company, and her mother having her own job elsewhere, she never really felt loved. Around age eight, Lunalynn became interested in combat school... more specifically, she became interested in doing something besides remaining on her parent's estate. After harassing her father enough, he agreed to hire personal trainers for her, giving her the choice of what exactly she would train in. Her very first choice was archery, having already seen her mother practicing it out in the gardens.

Once she began her training, Lunalynn worked extremely hard at it. For eight hours a day, she practiced with different types of bows, ranging from an assassin's short-bow, to a championship longbow, and everything in between. For five years, she trained in this, along with her normal studies, which left her almost no free time. At age thirteen, all of the teachers her father had hired had finally said they surpassed her in ability, making her a near master. At the same time, she completed her initial studies, placing her at an intelligence level far above other children her age. However, her father and mother were still too busy to give her much attention, a fact she resented to no end.

After finishing her archery training, she convinced her father to start her with close range fighting, knowing that it would become mandatory at some point. She decided against martial arts, not wanting to directly put herself in danger, and so picked close-range blade fighting. She started off small, learning with daggers and other short bladed weapons. After about six months, she was pushed forward to using short-swords. Three months after starting with the short-swords, she finally spotted something similar to her ideal weapon. She pestered the teachers to allow her to use kusarigama, and was eventually successful. She started training with both her bow and some rather old kusarigama, enjoying both styles immensely. For the next three and a half years, Lunalynn was spending five hours a day with each weapon, five hours a day studying, and almost exactly eight hours a day sleeping. The rest of her time was divided between other things, mostly relaxation of some sort.

Shortly after her seventeenth birthday, her mother suggested that Lunalynn enroll at a combat school of some sort, knowing that she would get in with no issue at this point. Agreeing with her mother on the matter, Lunalynn spent several weeks begging her father to let her go before he finally agreed, with restrictions. She first had to make her weapon, which didn't take her very long. The next step was actually being accepted by a school of her fathers choice, which she managed after one failed attempt. The school that ended up accepting her was fairly close to their family home, though she would be staying there for most of the year before heading home for holidays. Six months before her eighteenth birthday, she headed off to school.

Arriving at Pharos Academy, Lunalynn was immeditally thrown in to an initiation event that tested her patience more than anything else. It was a similar style to the one she'd read about other schools using, but with metal-themed playing cards being the item to obtain. Lunalynn collected the gold queen, and was later placed in team CLDN(Celedon). For the next year, she completely ignored the rest of her team. Partially because they were obnoxious, but partially because she really just did not care about any of them. Near the end of her first year at Pharos, the rest of her team dropped out for various reasons, a lot of them relating to mysterious injuries. This placed Lunalynn in limbo, until she requested a transfer to Beacon Academy for the next school year, wanting to explore more of the world. The request was approved by her parents, as well as both schools, and everything became finalized.

Spoiler:
 

Personality: Lunalynn is very proper, having been raised in the environment she was. Her education has resulted in her being extremely intelligent, calm, and collected. She's not exactly arrogant or stuck-up, but she's not the nicest person, either. She's always determined to get what she wants, with almost no restrictions on what she's willing to do for it. When speaking, her words come out extremely level, with almost no emotion in her voice. Even after two years at Beacon, Lunalynn hasn't eased up much. Her rather lackluster childhood had completely ruined her ability to make friends or hold a relationship, and even being forced in to a team for a short while did her no good. In general, she doesn't understand a lot of being social, making her naive in a school setting. She can come across as rude when people try to talk to her about things she doesn't really understand, which is just another hindrance towards making friends.

Strength: Lunalynn has spectacular eyesight, almost to a level where one could say she has Faunus blood running through her veins... Her upper body strength is far above average, a result of training with all of her weapon forms. At 19, she's as close to a master marksman as is possible, while still being extremely proficient at using her kusarigama. Her reflexes and general agility are also above average, from her constant training of her abilities.

Weakness: While she has upper body strength and spectacular reflexes, she's not very fast on her feet. In addition, she's not accustomed to working with others, and will often try to do everything on her own. While she's relatively well built, any powerful blows can prove to be a huge problem for her. While intelligent, her naivety in a lot of situations can come back to bite her in the ass.

Semblance: Phasing. Gives Lunalynn a ghostly appearance that allows her to avoid and walk through solid objects, including other people or their weapons. Lunalynn can do this with selective body parts, at slightly reduced strain than if it were her entire body. She is entirely visible while it's active, making it ill-suited for anything nefarious. The length of time it lasts is dependent on how much effort she puts in to it. Dodging a single blow or walking through one wall will only tire her slightly. Using it more than a few times in less than 24 hours has the potential to shut her body down, and she will pass out before her body lets her use it for more than 60 seconds, give or take.

WEAPON

Name: Fury of the Moon

Primary Form: Twin Kusarigama. The two and a half foot handles are made of a tough yet pliable wood, allowing them to take blows, yet allowing them to combine to make the bow form. Pressing a button along the handle releases the curved blades from the upper handles, allowing Lunalynn to carry Fury as two nondescript pieces of wood. Rather than chain or rope allowing her to use them as ranged weapons, she uses high tension bow-string. The string coils up inside the lower handles, giving the kusarigama a range of around 50 feet. While folded all the way, Lunalynn tends to keep both handles strapped inside her cloak, though she also has loops on her waist and upper back to hold them. The kusarigama can be used as climbing devices, as well as very effective attacking weapons.

Secondary Form: Longbow. By combining the kusarigama near the upper handles, and connecting the ends of both pieces of bow-string, Lunalynn is able to create a fairly high tension longbow, capable of ranges up to 500 feet, depending on how far she draws the string. Lunalynn tends to use the bow the most often, feeling more comfortable at a distance from those she's fighting.

Tertiary Form: Shortening the length of the bow-string on the kusarigama to almost nothing, Lunalynn can hook them together to create something similar to a double bladed scythe. Lunalynn rarely uses this form, as she finds it too bulky to use efficiently. If she absolutely can't stay out of range of a target, she may use this form to confuse them.

Extra Combat Notes: Lunalynn only carries one type of arrow, being standard wooden arrows with a metal tip. The arrow-tips are made from the same metal as the blades of Fury, and the wood is the same as the handles. The arrow-tips are serrated, allowing them to tear flesh and muscle of anything living that they pierce. She keeps around 50 on her person at all times, with the quiver resting just below the small of her back, facing to the right. This allows her to draw arrows even while wearing her cloak, yet keep them concealed if she doesn't want people to know she can also use a bow.

History: Fury is an original weapon designed by Lunalynn, with the materials provided by her father. Shortly before she departed for Pharos, Lunalynn was tasked with creating her weapon. Already knowing which she preferred to train with, it was an easy choice for her. The wood for the handles is from a rare tree, which only grows in a select few areas of the world. The metal used is similar to the metal her father uses in airship production, though a slightly modified alloy to allow it to withstand damage.
