Appearance: Shade is a woman of average height who typically walks around clad impeccably maintained clothing whether in the classroom or in the field with her cold, sharp, green eyes containing a beastly glint all the while. Her hair is stretched out long and unkempt, and it is completely lacking in the silkiness that would be found amongst those of higher social standing. Faunus features of a cat tail and ears stand out, as does archery gloves meant to mimic claws.
Personality: Some people have had a rough life, and it shows. Professor Shade is one of those people, especially as a survivor of the Faunus Rights Revolution where her people were slaughtered by the score for simply wanting to live in the land and homes that their ancestors had built up from dirt and grass into safe haven communities for their species.
The first image that many students will have of this particular instructor is that of ruthless practicality. Shade isn’t one of those who is gifted with amazing social skills and focuses primarily on the task at hand. A performance is very rarely perfect, and it is her job to ensure that people are aware of mistakes made and ways to do it better next time.
The real world is a harsh and cruel place that doesn’t care for hurt feelings or youthful emotions, and it’s her job to take a bunch of teenagers and turn them into the next generation of Huntsmen whose duty it is to protect the people of Remnant from the Creatures of Grimm. A lofty task, to be sure, but the fact of the matter is that Haven needed Huntsmen and this gig is a hell of a lot better than wandering around the wilderness cold, wet, and tired for another few years.
A warm bed to sleep in, actual prepared meals, and state of the art training facilities for the same pay as the other thing? It was simply an offer she wasn’t going to miss.
Combat & Inventory
Semblance Type: Physical Boost
One Sentence Summary of Semblance: Prowl allows Shade to put a visual and auditory cloak on herself, turning her body mostly transparent and muting any noise she makes while it is active.
Description of Semblance: Prowl allows Shade to camouflage her body by making it mostly transparent, leaving only a small shimmer effect behind as the objects behind her are slightly distorted due to the imperfect nature of the visual cloak. Sound is dampened as well, to the point of any noise that Shade would naturally make being completely muted for the duration the semblance is active. The cloak basically looks like this from a distance for a visual representation.
Drawbacks of Semblance: Shadows are not hidden, and neither are footprints or other changes in the environment outside of Shade’s immediate person. New items that she picks up take a second to turn invisible, which allows tricks like throwing flour on her or simply being in an environment where it is raining makes the visual cloak much, much less effective due to the foreign material hugging her body and making it much more visible for that brief second before melding into the invisibility… but the rain or any similar constantly falling object means that there is always that outline present.
Description of Weapons(s): Tauropolos is a jet-black western style long bow as tall as Shade is, with a draw weight of 170lbs (77.1kg). The extreme force at play creates a distinctive noise when an arrow is released, and the force of that arrow is enough to punch through even steel armor very consistently.
History The following can be considered public knowledge and is part of Professor Shadecloak’s official file.
Theloria Shadecloak received her Huntsman license in the year 16 AV from Beacon Academy. She is an original member of Team CBLT (Cobalt), the first All-Faunus team to ever graduate from Beacon Academy. They were finalists in the 8th Vytal Festival and the first team to send a Faunus member to the grand finals of that event. Team CBLT participated in the Faunus Rights Revolution, but never as a combatant against the humans.
They instead protecting settlements of humans and Faunus alike from Grimm attacks throughout the Kingdom of Vale while the best warriors of these villages were away in the war. Professor Shadecloak is a veteran of over three hundred Huntsman grade missions and specializes in stealth operations, search and rescue, and bounty operations. Her semblance is called Prowl and allows her to cloak herself visually as well as completely muting the sounds that she makes to become what amounts to a ghost on the field.
Professor Shadecloak is joining us at Haven Academy and is going to be teaching the ‘Team Combat’ class in the opening semester of the year as well as temporarily taking over the duties of homeroom teacher for Class 1. In the second semester, she will also serve as one of the rotating lecturers for the ‘Introduction to Leadership’ course that will be offered to Team Leaders and other students interested in learning how to better lead your fellow classmates.
After the class split, Professor Shadecloak is now the homeroom teacher of Class Green and continues her Team Combat class as well as occasional seminars on ethics and leadership.
Extra Loria refers to a laurel tree or sweet bay tree and evokes the colors of brown and green. Shade refers to a wraith or other form of incorporeal monster or shadow, both of which are associated with the color black.
Please note that NPCs are not statted out at character creation, and any skills that you want to use in any threads must be approved by a member of the Events Team. Even staffers must get their abilities approved by someone else in the case of NPCs. The highest rank ability that a faculty NPC can have is C-Rank, so keep that in mind.
