Combat & Inventory
Rank of Semblance: E
Semblance Type: Manipulator Semblence (Solidification of Element)
One Sentence Summary of Semblance: His Shadowman semblence allows him to manipulate darkness, shadows included, with body movements.
Description of Semblance: Puron's semblence is the simple ability to manipulate and solidify the shadows around him that are on the ground. Using his aura to power the ability, Puron's movements are mimicked by these manipulated shadows. For example, if he were to mimic throwing something, the darkness would fling itself merrily as though it were tossed. The maximum effective range for shadow manipulation is about the length of a telephone pole, around 12 meters. Darkness is able to be thrown out of this range, but he loses control of it and cannot call it back.
Drawbacks of Semblance: Light is the easiest way to deter this semblence. Something strong like a flash bang would immediate snuff any and all shadows that Puron can control. Along with this, due to it requiring his aura to power, he cannot use it when his aura is depleted. The solidification of the darkness only lasts for upwards of three seconds(Half of a combat post) after leaving his 'zone' of manipulation, meaning once the opponent is out of range, the projectile will dissipate very quickly.
Another major weakness is the fact that it requires body movement. Restrict Puron's ability to move, and his semblence can't do much.
Description of Weapons(s): Farewell is Puron's weapon of choice, it being a chainmail-mesh made parasol. It has sharpened blades around the edges when opened, and when closed, it acts as a rifle, with the handle being what you put the dust in.
The weapon itself has a hard wooden handle that pops off. The neck of the parasol is metal and thicker than a normal parasol would have. The actual fabric of the weapon is a violet color, with the blades being made out of simple metals like iron.
Puron's main usage is not only to combat with it, but to make more shadows for him to manipulate.
Description of Non-Combat Ability: Puron cares a lot about other people; it was his main reasoning for learning how to be a medic. He taught himself via reading and practicing with smaller injuries on those he knew and those who got hurt, becoming better with time. With this, he's capable of stopping blood loss, giving CPR, and overall stabilizing a person till a true professional comes in.
Name of Non-Combat Ability: Cooking
Rank of Non-Combat Ability: F
Description of Non-Combat Ability: Being that he was in a relatively large family, Puron had to learn to cook fairly early on in his life. While he's certainly no chef, he at least knows not to put jalapenos in ice cream most of the time.
Description of Combat Ability: Puron's learned to run and walk fairly fast due to his need to get to places in a small amount of time. He's certainly not the fastest, but he's able to get somewhere within a decent amount of time.
Name of Combat Ability: Agile (Agility)
Rank of Combat Ability: F
Description of Combat Ability: Perhaps being a cat Faunus helped- or maybe it was his attempts at simply training to become better at bending every which way. He's able to maneuver himself fairly decently.
Name of Combat Ability: Nimble (Acrobatics)
Rank of Combat Ability: F
Description of Combat Ability: To go along with his agile nature, he's also able to move around in different directions to the degree of someone capable of zipping around, funnily enough, similar to a cat!
Name of Combat Ability: Sturdy (Durability)
Rank of Combat Ability: F
Description of Combat Ability: While not exactly as sturdy as others, he's able to withstand a few hits before falling apart at the very least. Tripping and falling constantly seems to have lended him some form of resistance to eating dirt.
Name of Combat Ability: Umbrella Fighter (Martial Arts)
Rank of Combat Ability: F
Description of Combat Ability: Capable of handling melee combat to the degree that most students would be able to do, Puron's not the best, but he at least learned that you should not do fancy over the top moves to just get out of the way of a simple kick. His practice with a regular umbrella allows for better understanding of his weapon, too.
Puron was born to a large family of cat Faunus. Though things weren't grand, and their family certainly wasn't any sort of noble or rich household, he grew up fairly well rounded and happy for some time. Perhaps it was because his elder brothers kept him and his younger siblings safe from what would hurt them. Yet as time went on, things got worse.
The Faunus War started when he was only ten years old. His brothers, older and stronger, went off to fight for their rights to stay in the four kingdoms. it It left Puron with his aging mother, a disappeared father, and three younger siblings to take care of. For some time, he exercised and practiced on his own. After all, no one knew whether or not the war would end in their favor or not. If worse came to worst, Puron would fight with all he had to protect his family. He cared for them, and love was what kept him running during the time.
When the war ended, and the dust settled enough for him to believe that his family would finally be whole again, it was the long agonizing wait that made him begin to despair. His two elder brothers never returned from the war. For a year or so, he felt depressed and simply alone. Forgetting that he had the rest of his family, he let things deteriorate- allowing his younger siblings to take over with holding the household up.
The continued discrimination of Faunus only made Puron feel worse and worse, yet he was slapped awake to his true situation by his mother of all people. She screamed at him, wondering why- why was he giving up? Because he lost people, he decided to fall into depression and just leave the rest to the younger siblings? He was the oldest brother, now. He needed to take care of everyone as the 'Man' of the household!
It wasn't a perfect argument- plenty of flaws within its cracks- but it was enough to wake him up. He was the oldest male in the household. He needed to help take care of everyone else, even if it was only starting at small steps again.
Very few places offered jobs to Faunus where he lived. Even fewer allowed him to keep the job, not to mention they hardly paid very well at all. His want to get into the Haven Academy only came when he realized how much money he could raise for his family- how much support he could do- and anyone could do it. So long as they survived the test, they passed the exam, and they went through the schooling.
He began to exercise again- to train himself. With time, effort, and lots of support, he decided to leave his family for a time. Maybe he would never see them again- or maybe he would come back triumphant. No matter what, he kept them in his mind as he went through each step to get into Haven Academy. He was riding on the hopes of knowing his family would be able to be happy again, before the War, before the discrimination.
