Name: Emilius Striver
(Hilda calls him this because she gives nicknames to everyone with a name that can be shortened; Em is skeptical at first, because it’s a girl’s name, but he kinda just accepts it and moves on XD it becomes endearing later)
Weight: 169 lbs
Sexual Orientation: Heterosexual
Em is very reserved and level-headed, but also incredibly compassionate and protective toward his friends. He is also very honest, always telling people exactly what he thinks is best. Due to this combination of traits, he is an amazing advice giver and confidante.
Emilius is humble too, and shows great respect to authority and elders. However, he can be obedient to a fault, often blindly following authority figures without questioning what he is actually being asked to do.
Emilius is the type of person who stands by rules and laws, but whose true loyalty will always lie with the people he cares for most.
Partner: Hilda Basileia
- Emilius can turn his Aura into a more forceful barrier than others’ and use the shock of an impact to rebound damage toward his foes
- This Semblance uses the vibrations of physical objects to take the motion of an attack toward the user and turn it around to send the same force back outward; while a powerful tool in the right circumstances, this Semblance must be used sparingly, as it relies on the user taking damage as well
Emilius’ whip, Bellona, is constructed of individual segments infused with Dust. Upon striking contact with a surface, the Dust gives off a small explosion of its respective element. At any time, these segments can split apart and rearrange. The segment on the end is the one that usually makes contact in a direct attack, and therefore decides which element is being used.
Emilius has a very precise method of fighting, based on keen observation and perfectly-placed hits. He prefers to keep his distance to the maximum range of his weapon, as his fighting style is a patient one that relies heavily on waiting for the foe to initiate and then watching their movements. He can hold his own in close-range situations, but he fares much better with some breathing room. He can use his whip to ensnare enemy weapons and disarm them or toss his foes across the field. With his calm and analytical mindset, he is also very adept at dodging with small movements and sidesteps, keeping himself in perfect range of his foe.
Just like the actual characters from RWBY, all of the characters on Team HELM are based on fictional or mythological figures. Feel free to guess their inspirations!
( Hint: They are all based on villains/antagonistic figures.)
Em's is probably the hardest to guess. It's not exactly a villain. Just a mythological figure who caused a bit of trouble.
He is based on Eris, god of discord :3
But still, cool design and an even cooler weapon (LOVE it's name)
thanks, I had fun with Em's weapon I would love to see him actually use it....it looks so cool in my head X'D
I like the concept for the whip.
