Team HELM - Emilius Striver (bio below) by GECKO-Nuzlockes Team HELM - Emilius Striver (bio below) by GECKO-Nuzlockes

Name: Emilius Striver

Nickname: Em

(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)

Age: 20

Year: 3rd

Race: Human

Height: 5’11''

Weight: 169 lbs

Laterality: Right-handed

Sexual Orientation: Heterosexual

Personality:

               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.


 

Team: HELM

Partner: Hilda Basileia

Weapon: Bellona

Semblance: Reverberate

                - 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

 

Fighting Style:

               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.

I'm going to guess his inspiration is Roman in origin. Is it related to  Mars in anyway?

Ooh, awesome guess :) He's actually based on a Greek figure, a female figure actually. Not one of the more common ones though, as far as I know

I know that Bellona is a minor Roman military god, don't know if she has a Greek counterpart. If his is Greek, a few ideas: Perseus, Bellerphron, Castor, Pollux, Heracles, Theseus.

I have had many eccentric tastes since i was a kid. Mythology happened to be one of my top ones. One of my first games was age of mythology. Did not expect her with his personality.

His personality doesn't quite align. In fact, it's almost opposite :XD: But his Semblance is meant to reflect that idea of discord, and he has three younger sisters who represent the three girls from the myth

Hrm... The only inspiration I can think of pecos Bill, because of the whip.

But still, cool design and an even cooler weapon (LOVE it's name)

the weapons actually aren't really taken from the figure they're based on. It's more just the names and little references in their character and such. good guess though!

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
