CHARACTER

Name:
Vivian Palladino

Age:
18

Gender:
Female (Cat faunus)

Symbol:
N/A

Occupation:
Student at Beacon, first year

Appearance:
The most noticeable thing about Vivian is that she lacks both of her arms, having stumps that go about halfway to where her elbows would have been.  She is 5'2'' and 93 pounds, being slightly underweight due to the missing limbs.  Her blonde hair reaches past her shoulders, though it is usually tied up in a ponytail since it would get stuck in her face otherwise.  Her faunus ears atop her head are the same color, while her eyes are bright green.   She can often be seen wearing a dark red hoodie with plates of armor underneath, and the sleeves cut off.  As for pants, she wears cargo shorts that end right above the knee, with her tail hanging out of a hole in the back.  She never wears shoes, as she often needs to use her feet to pick things up, resulting in them being heavily calloused.  A metal plate is strapped onto her right shoulder, with her weapon attached.

History:
Vivian was born with a birth defect that caused her to have no right arm, and part of a deformed left.  After weeks of surgery, the doctors managed to repair what little had developed, resulting in two rounded stumps above where her elbows would normally be.  Coming from a poor family, she wasn't able to afford prosthetics, and would have to spend her entire life with only her legs.  Of course, teaching a child to live in the world with such a disability wouldn't be easy.  Vivian spent the first 10 years of her life training to use her feet for everything, from writing to eating.  She began fighting, training in kick-based fighting styles like taekwondo and capoeira (again, not easy to learn without use of one’s arms).

At 14, she entered her first combat school and graduated at the top of her class, despite her disadvantage over her fellow classmates.  Being faunus and having no arms made many people view her as some sort of freak-of-nature, but she was mostly un-phased by this.  She viewed her disability as an advantage, as she had to try twice as hard as the others.  Her extreme determination to become a Huntress was partially due to the fact that if she did, she could prove that she didn't need to rely on others to help her live her life.


Personality:
Vivian is usually carefree, not having issue with things like people staring at her arms, or lack thereof.  It takes a lot to actually insult her, finding most attempts at insulting her amusing.  She often makes jokes about herself in attempt to ease tension, or to at least show that she doesn't mind her condition as much as one might think.  Her outlook on life is very childish;  the only things she cares about are having fun and being able to beat people up.  Any conversation involving her will probably go on forever, as she is very much a chatterbox, talking on and on about things even if it doesn't make any sense.  She is not good at maintaining relationships whatsoever, and tends to not get involved in them too much either way.  If she manages to befriend somebody, she will most likely become obsessed with being around that person, as a constant source of fun and simply something to talk to.  

Strength:
Extremely flexible and very athletic, has a surprisingly good sense of balance.  Her martial arts training allows her to defend herself well against multiple opponents.  She is a fast runner, but trips a lot.  Being a cat faunus, she has improved hearing, night vision, and sharper fangs.  She is a heavy aura user, as she can't really protect herself from attacks in any other way.  She can fight from close range and far range, making her good for teams who lack fighters who are effective at either of those.

Weakness:
Lack of arms causes a lot of problems, obviously.  Vivian can only use her feet to pick things up.  If she were to be grabbed, there wouldn't be much she could do besides attempting to kick them or activating her semblance.  She thrusts her legs into the air to get back up when on the ground; if she were to injure a leg, she wouldn't even be able to crawl to safety.  Putting on clothing is a difficult task, and she often requires help doing it.  While a good fighter, her grades are often suffering, from both a lack of interest in study and a slightly below-average IQ.

Semblance:
Vivian is able to solidify the aura surrounding her in certain spots of her body.  This armor is practically impenetrable and doesn't cost too much aura to activate, but each hit that she takes while using it is what really drains it.  For example, if she were to trip and activate it, a small amount of aura would be drained.  If a rocket were to hit her directly while it is activated, she would lose a huge amount of aura and be heavily weakened afterwards.  The more coverage spread across her body, the more aura it consumes.  She sometimes uses it to increase the damage caused by her kicks or headbutts, but this is aura-costly as well.

WEAPON

Name:
Artiglieria

Primary Form:
A shoulder mounted cannon, capable of firing different types of dust rounds.  The gun is controlled by making various complicated gestures with her arm that to ensure that they aren't activated or fired on accident.  The movements are detected by a harness-like device that is attached to her right arm-stump.  One of the disadvantages is that she can’t load it in the middle of combat, and must switch to melee fighting when ammo is depleted.

Secondary Form:
The gun rests on the back of her shoulder when deactivated, moving to the top when activated.

Tertiary Form:
N/A

History:
Due to the fact that she is considered a handicapped student, her original combat school provided her with the money and resources necessary to create a weapon.  She considered various designs, like rocket boots, or chainsaws that attach to her shoulders.  The final version of her weapon gives her the ability to fight at long range, while her martial arts skills allow her to function at close range as well.
