" I wear my heart upon my sleeve, so my soul is exposed"
Faction Haven Academy
Face Claim Mordred Pendragon from Fate Apocrypha
OOC Name Dessen
Date of Birth: April 6, 7AV
Hometown: Nowhere, Vacuo
Romantic Orientation: Bisexual
Hair Color/Style: Blonde, medium length and unkempt. Usually kept in a ponytail.
Eye Color: Jade
Aura Color: Scarlet Red
Color Naming Rule: Rosalia's nickname is Rose, which is a vividly red flower that suits her scarlet lightning semblance. Phoenix also is akin to reds and yellows of fire! Her entire story is of falling to ashes and rising once again in one sense or another. Red like Roses.
Appearance: Rose is a bit on the short side with a light complexion, despite her background in the desert. She cares not for how she looks and rarely would be seen in anything prim or proper. Her hair is always a mess, tied harshly in a ponytail and dangling around her hardened skin. School uniforms are always unbuttoned and uneven as she prefers to look as casual as possible.
Her demeanor is always set to a maximum intensity. A shit eating grin splayed on her face in mockery or teeth bared like a lion in fury...there is no subtle look to this girl. Her voice is loud and clear when spoken in an open challenge to any in her vicinity.
When in casual attire, Rose wears very little. Tank tops, shorts, and the like to bare as much skin as possible in her tomboyish stance. Growing up in Vacuo, she prefers the scantily clad lifestyle and isn't afraid to flaunt it...even if Rose doesn't have much to show. Though she is never caught without her dark red leather jacket that cuts off around the mid drift.
Personality: All her life Rose has known one thing: win. At all costs. The strong will always survive and the weak belong under their boot. She is loud and arrogant to the point of grating because she knows that her bragging can be backed up with skill and strength. Quick to fight and even quicker with her temper, it takes very little to set her off.
It's difficult to garner her attention above casual conversation unless you can prove that you are worth a shit. How? Prove that you can hold your own in a fight. If you can't hang, then she'll slap you with a pathetic nickname and never deign to call you by name again. That said, there's nothing she wants more than a good fight! Rose actively seeks battle. She LIVES for it! The rush of blood and adrenaline is borderline addicting to her and she chases that high, whether she wins or loses. Though if she loses, she WILL hunt your ass down and challenge you until she kicks your ass. Pain motivates her and battle excites her.
Honor and respect mean very little to Rose. It can't fill your belly and it won't keep you warm at night...so why bother? The barbarian will resort to any tactic to win with no regard or care for how others perceive her. She strives for the top, plain and simple. Her speech is loud and foul, having grown up in harsh conditions and surrounded by wretched cretins. Which couples with her abrasive and cocky attitude.
Her appetite is voracious to the point of insane, thinking of her next meal almost as much as she does combat. Rose is not above theft or intimidation to get what she wants...and she always gets her way or else.
There's a semblance of leadership to be seen in her, though it's ruled through fear and an iron will that refuses to back down once Rose sets her mind to something. Calm under pressure, the battlefield is her one and only home where she feels utter bliss in tearing her enemies apart. Grimm, human, or Faunus...it matters little to Rose. As long as her blade can be quenched.
Though despite all of her negative qualities, she can show humility to those weaker than her and a faint sense of respect to the strong. Rose can be friendly in social situations and will strike up a conversation easily enough with just about anyone!
Rose also is an avid drinker and tends to smoke frequently. Not because of stress, but because she enjoys the vices and the rebellion that goes with them. Fuck authority!
Combat & Inventory
Rank of Semblance: C
Semblance Type: Physical Boost
Primary Category: Obstacle (+4)
Secondary Category: Hazard (+2)
One Sentence Summary of Semblance: Marauder is a Physical Boost style semblance which will grant Rose an increase in Speed and Durability when activated.
Description of Semblance: When activated, Marauder surrounds Rose in bright red lightning that crackles and zaps violently around her body. Her speed increases to that of an Ostrich, moving at a top speed of 95 km/hr. Her entire body strengthens to the point of becoming hard as Steel, allowing her to take hits much harder.
Drawbacks of Semblance: In order to activate Marauder, Rose must concentrate her anger and channel it into her semblance. As long as she's caught off guard, she can't trigger the boost.
This also is a boost alone. Ranged fighters have a clear advantage against Rose as long as they keep their distance.
As long as Rose is actively using her semblance, it takes a toll on her body. Like most Hunters, her semblance drains her stamina with each use, with that drain directly proportional to the amount of exertion that she has expended.
Description of Weapons(s): Rebellion is an ornate silver sword that is approximately one hundred and ten centimeters in length and weighs a little more than two kilograms. Due to it's size and weight, it would normally be wielded with two hands but Rose's strength allows her to swing it one handed in combat and rest it easily on her shoulder when in rest. Just above the cross guard, a section of the blade opens up once Rose triggers a button on the hilt that will open up to activate the dust held inside.
Description of Combat Ability: Rose has fought for survival her entire life with sword in hand. Constant battle, weight training, and a drive to grow stronger has honed her body strength to ridiculous levels. As such, Rose is able to lift up to 180kg in weight alone with mild strain.
Name of Combat Ability: Enhanced Stamina
Rank of Combat Ability: E
Description of Combat Ability: Her time spent in the intense heat of the Vacuo desert has toughened Rose's body enough that she can run for 10km without having to stop.
Name of Combat Ability: Enhanced Acrobatics
Rank of Combat Ability: E
Description of Combat Ability: Life as a brigand and thief has taught her how to be nimble enough to avoid being caught. Rose can run along walls, scale fences, and even climb up walls of small buildings to traverse both vertical and horizontal planes.
Name of Combat Ability: Weapon Enhancement: Dust
Rank of Combat Ability: E
Description of Combat Ability: The base of Rebellion's blade, just above the cross guard, can be activated to pop open and enhance the blade with the elemental qualities of fire and lightning stored within the hilt of the sword. Along with enhancing the damage of the weapon, it also can be used up and fired as a blade beam with a range of twelve meters.
The activation of the dust lasts for one turn, and can be activated twice in the same thread. When an enemy is struck by the dust enhanced weapon, E rank damage is dealt to the target and split over the course of two posts.
Name of Combat Ability: Argus Alter Martial Arts
Rank of Combat Ability: E
Description of Combat Ability: Trained by Colton Deraine to use her immense strength to her advantage, Rose has adapted an altered style to the counter heavy techniques of a native Argus fighter. This utilizes momentum and quick counters to retaliate while effectively taking advantage of her large blade as a solid defense. Argus Alter is a firm balance that switches between offense and defense on the fly.
She uses her rage to keep pressure on the opponent, maintaining close range at all times to intimidate. After her encounter with Skye Spears during Vytal, Rose has since applied a far more aggressive and up close attack strategy that coincides with her balance fighting style.
Primary Drive: Rose's goal is to become stronger for her own sake. Sins of the past and the pain she has endured has left her soul scarred and vulnerable. She covers this up by acting brash, but deep down she has a strong desire to be the best Huntress for the self gratification and ego boost. Lives claimed by Grimm affect her and she ultimately does yearn for the extermination of the threat to humanity.
Fears: Rose's biggest fear is losing control. Giving into her berserker nature and killing an innocent or a loved one. She's afraid to show any true feelings to anyone and keeps herself guarded at all times to avoid feeling the pain once felt from losing her family and best friend. She is also afraid of water, not knowing how to swim from her years spent in a desert climate. If she goes anywhere near deep water, then Rose freezes up completely. Though not necessarily a fear, but she is lactose intolerant. So any dairy freaks her out.
Style of Self-Expression: Rose is a very loud and brash individual, though she prefers actions rather than words. Her vocabulary is limited and basic, often seasoned with curse words and slurs toward anyone whether they are listening or not. Speaking of which, she hates to be ignored and will challenge anyone out right for their rudeness. She doesn't sidestep issues often and generally speaks her mind, making her a terrible negotiator. Her mentality would best be described as the blood knight archetype, always looking for a fight to scratch that competitive itch.
Most Important Thing: Rose has an important thing and an important person. Her pride as a warrior exceeds all other feelings to her. To lose is to show weakness and the girl would rather die than be shown mercy. Her anger boils at the thought of cowardice, so she always keeps her head held high and would always spit in the face of any who back down from their ideals. To Rose the most important person to her is Rin Hellebore. She sees her fellow Huntress as someone special with potential hidden within and for reasons unbeknownst to her, Rose behaves completely different around Rin. She grows quiet, acts in a proper manner, and laughs in a genuine manner. Even her own berserk rage is kept under control when the girl is involved! There is next to nothing that Rose wouldn't do to keep the smaller blood user from harm, up to and including her own life. Which is frustrating to her, considering how Rin would react to such a flippant view on life. She confuses Rose to no end.
On April 6, 7AV a nomadic tribe had settled in for the night when their camp was ambushed by Grimm. Fighting off the horde, few lost their lives due to the efforts of their chief Demirci who fought side by side with his wife Hvid. In the midst of battle, Hvid collapsed in the throes of child labor and birthed Rosalia Phoenix on the battlefield. To the tribe, this was a good omen and the girl henceforth would be treated with respect and honor as she grew up.
Growing up in Vacuo, she was taught that the strong deserved to live and the weak were to be crushed. Children typically stayed with the tribe, but Rose actively sought conflict. She raided and pillaged with her people, though the common folk provided her with little challenge. It bored her greatly and she beat on children younger and older than her, yet none could defeat her. Only a boy named Erik had given her a challenge and became her best friend. Her Father was a talented blacksmith and her Mother was an expert in the manipulation of Dust. Both had spent their lives perfecting their craft. Growing up, Rose idolized her parents and the ornate sword they had forged together with their professions. It had no name, so Rose called it Rebellion and dreamed of the day she could wield it.
During a raid on a village, her tribe decided to settle down for a time. This was a mistake as within a week they were attacked by the Grimm. It was sudden and without preamble. All through the night, her people defended themselves and ultimately prevailed! Yet it was a short lived victory as the morning was greeted with a raiding party from another nomadic tribe. Weakened from battle, Rose's people were slaughtered. Her parents hacked to pieces before her very eyes and Rebellion taken by their leader. Rose and the other young ones were taken as slaves by the tribe.
Because of her wild nature, Rose was forced into the arenas where she was forced into combat with both Grimm and other slaves for sport. While she hated the enslavement, the girl relished in the battles and hungrily sought each and every chance to fight. She and Erik watched each others' backs, becoming favorites quick enough through the years of combat. Yet their handler grew bold one day and had decided to pit Rose against Erik...a young man she had grown fond of in a way. Someone she could trust and maybe even lean on.
Erik attacked her without hesitation in the arena, which infuriated Rose. So much to the point that her semblance triggered! Red lightning sparked all around her and she attacked Erik with reckless abandon! As she mercilessly killed her friend, the town had come under attack by more Grimm. People panicked like mad and in the ensuing chaos, Rose escaped the arena and hunted down her handler. She retrieved her parents' sword and dug it deep into her slave master's gut before fighting her way out of the burning town.
For days she wandered the desert with a single minded desire to survive. Yet there was nothing but the endless sand. Rose passed out from exhaustion in the blazing heat without food or water. She would awaken, bound and gagged in a thieves encampment where the two leaders hovered over her while bickering over the girl's fate. While distracted, they hadn't noticed the fury filled girl break free of her bonds. She slaughtered the men and presented their corpses to the camp, proclaiming herself as leader of the brigands.
Rose would spend years of her life dedicated to building a reputation as a feared monger of Vacuo. Her group taking what they pleased and when they pleased. Though she grew bored in her years as a young brigand, even the small Grimm proving little challenge. She craved excitement. She wanted to feel the thrill of loss! When she heard of the upcoming 15th Mistral Regional Tournament, Rose signed on at the chance to become a Huntress. Fighting giant Grimm and thinking on the prospect of stronger fighters was too much to pass up! Rose relinquished her leadership of her band and set forth to become a Huntress.
She encountered several odd characters during the tournament, though she hardly exerted her strength. In the end, Rose had come out on top and won the tournament. All of the academies were vying for her attention while endorsements came in to sponsor her on cereal boxes and other advertisements. The attention brightened her mood some and the money was nice, but she still hadn't found a proper challenge yet.
So she had traveled to each of the academies to test their mettle and gauge the quality of their faculty. Rose went through the tournament at each academy she visited, not only assaulting the pathetic Grimm in the area but also tripping up her competition. To her it was amusing to see the sad candidates get crushed and beaten, but she ended up growing bored of the cycle. It was the psyche evaluation that caused her the most grief. The girl wasn't a psychopath, but the way she handled the questions gave pause to the test takers. She was wild and blood thirsty, but someone with enough potential to be of great use to the Hunters...not to mention they were desperate for candidates. So the girl passed, albeit under careful watch. Ultimately, Rosalia Phoenix had settled upon Haven Academy to be her institution. She could only hope that they would provide her with sufficient challenge and education needed to be the best of the best.
