Team HELM - Melanie Caidya (bio below) by GECKO-Nuzlockes Team HELM - Melanie Caidya (bio below) by GECKO-Nuzlockes
Why does she get a head shot when none of the other HELM characters do? Because I drew her first, and then was too lazy to do headshots for the rest XD

I've already been told many times that her weapon is basically Bayonetta's weapon. I have not played Bayonetta. Bayonetta wasn't even on my mind when I designed Mel. It's coincidence, and Mel's fighting style is very different from hers. That is all.

=============

Name: Melanie Caidya (kayd-yuh)

Nickname: Mel, though Locke likes to call her Melonhead

Age: 19

Year: 3rd

Race: Faunus (reptilian subrace)

Height: 5’7’’

Weight: 167 lbs

Handedness: Right-handed

Sexual Orientation: Homosexual

 

Team: HELM

Partner: Locke Vosser

Weapon:  Bakunawa’s Fangs

                - Mel’s weapons fold out from her ankle bands to surround her feet

Semblance: Vampirism

    -Melanie can drain the Aura of others through physical contact, increasing the strength of her own Aura

    - Unfortunately, this Semblance doesn’t work on Grimm, due to the Grimm having no Aura

     

Personality:

                - Melanie is extremely fun-loving, outgoing, and people-oriented. She is also extremely lazy. If it weren’t for Hilda, she would probably be failing her classes, or never going to them, because she would be sleeping all day. However, she is incredibly supportive toward people. She does her best to make everyone feel important and included.

                - Melanie is the type of person who plays everything by ear and believes life is too short not to have the most fun possible.

Fighting Style:

                -Melanie’s style revolves around kicks, though she occasionally incorporates tail strikes into her attacks as well. She fights aggressively, charging the opponent at high speeds and delivering powerful blows with every move. Though she may not look it, Melanie is incredibly graceful, and her bulky tail actually aids her balance when performing high-dexterity moves.

                -Defensively-speaking, Melanie relies mostly on dodges. Because she has no means of guarding, aside from possibly parrying attacks with her weapons, she uses her nimbleness to weave around enemy attacks and converts the momentum of her dodging back into opportunities for offense. She can also use the momentum of the gunfire from her weapons to distance herself from foes or propel into other attacks.

                -In battle, Melanie uses her Semblance quite sparingly. Her main use for it comes in team battles when she has an ally or two supporting her. When Team HELM fights together, their strategy often revolves around Mel providing heavy offense with the others conserving their energy. Mel replenishes her Aura by borrowing her teammate’s power and jumps right back into the fray.

    - In 1v1 situations, she will occasionally drain some Aura when she gets close enough to the foe, but again, she doesn’t resort to this often, since an attack is usually more beneficial than her Semblance in close-range situations.


------------------

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.)

Not entirely my team...maybe my friend created a character too and she may be slotted in since her name fits for the team name ( The awkward part is that she's a bow and arrow user :P )

Well, everyone has a different interpretation, even if it seems like the same thing.

Vampirism, huh?  Makes me wonder what would happen if she tried to drain Vile with his poison skin...

GECKO-Nuzlockes Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
well, does it poison on contact? because then that would still affect her. she just drains people's Aura level. so, it'd probably take Vile's Aura but then damage her? Something like that?

He has to concentrate to activate it, like any semblance, but it isn't exactly a true poison as it is something that simply weakens the afflicted over time, but wears off eventually.  Think of it like the status ailment from the Pokemon games.  (yeah, I basically gave him the poison point ability.  I regret nothing.)

Ooh, that's really interesting. So in this case, it would probably do Mel no good to use her Semblance on him. She could momentarily be healed, but then the poison would slowly sap her energy over time anyway.

Not to mention more contact leads to faster drainage.
