Plot Humankind was formed from the dust of creation, a byproduct of a time long past and forgotten. Not long after, mythical creatures of darkness referred to as the Grimm appeared and were intent on destroying Humanity and all it had made. However, with man displaying ingenuity, resourcefulness, and passion, they found a powerful substance that granted the user the power of "Nature's Wrath," and appropriately named this spark of hope "Dust," after that which they themselves were born from. The use of Dust helped to drive off the creatures of darkness and secured the continued existence of Humanity. That said, it's also true that even the most brilliant of lights eventually fade, and the dark will eventually return to finish what it started and destroy Human civilization; furthermore, if Humanity relies on strength or Dust alone, then it will not be enough to defeat the Grimm a second time. Instead, it's believed that victory will come from something that is long forgotten: a "smaller, more honest soul." It is your and a few other students First Starting year at Beacon Academy, in which you will learn more about Grimm, Aura, Semblance, Dust, alongside being introduced to Combat, Tactics, and Leadership. All to become Hunters and Huntresses. Setting You and a few others have just landed in one of the many landing pads to Beacon Academy, in front of you stands a large castle like school building. You have been instructed by Professor Ozpin and his Assistant Glynda Goodwitch to head to the ball room, where you will be allowed to interact with the other students for a few hours before heading to bed. Once you are awake you are to head towards the Rocket Locker's and get your weapons. Afterwards you are to meet at the launch pads on the cliff overlooking Emerald Forest where Professor Ozpin will explain your initiation. Character Sheet Name:(Can be anything but names that don't relate to a color are rare) Height: Weight: (Height and Weight are just for those who want to make a character who are smaller/bigger than normal.)

Race: (You have the choice of 4 Races, Human, Aura-Generating Android (Only 1 allowed, and this android is stronger than normal humans, smarter, and can remotely hack into things, but they are socially stunted, meaning they don't know how to interact with others like normal humans/faunus.) Half-Grim (Only 1 allowed, a Half Grim will not have an aura and only half a soul, but a Half-Grim can change parts of their body into Grim parts, or give themself extra Grim appendages (Like small Nevermore Wings, or a small Deathstalker Tail), Half-Grim also will have Beowulf like ears, or a Beowulf like tail, your choice.)) and finally Faunus (Faunus are basically people with 1 or more Animal like aspects (the more animal like aspects, the more they are animal like), can see in the dark, and have better hearing and sight than a human (For example, Cat Faunus will have cat ears or a cat tail.) But be aware that most humans discriminate against Faunus because of The White Fang, only a few humans don't, but almost all Faunus despise The White Fang because of this. If you choose to be a Faunus be aware that Attempted bullying and other such things may happen at Beacon. Which is one of the only schools for Hunters and Huntresses that accept Faunus and the Teachers and Staff don't discriminate against.))) Family: (Just list any family you have or know of.)
