Hello everyone!

It has been a while. I was hoping that I could make the site start up again by it's 1st birthday, but that didn't work out.  Sorry for that.

We're moving! Instead of revamping the whole site, we are moving to a new one, this time on proboards. (I apologize in advance if you are trying to read a thread you participated in but found that it has been deleted) The new site is still under development. So, if you are interested and want to get more information on the site like the progress on that, just send a pm to me.

If you are looking for a thread or any threads had been deleted, just send me a pm as well.

Full Name: Richter Samuel Linnaeus
Nickname: Rook
Age: 20
Birthday: Oct. 31st
Race: Faunus (Komodo Dragon)
Aura: Defense
Aura Color: Gun-metal Grey
Iron Stasis:

Just as he was bred to be, Richter's physique is like that of a lighthouse; Tall and built to last. He was raised and trained for strength and toughness above all else and it shows in his large and toned build. While not immediately noticeable, Richter is a faunus. The most noticeable thing is his skin has a covering of tough scales covering the backs of his forearms and his shins. Other, less noticeable, features include his forked tongue, sharp teeth, and parietal eyes. These reptilian features don't detract from the man's appearance, as he has the visage of an intimidating warrior. His platinum blonde hair gives the appearance that Richter lacks any type of hair on the majority of his body, including his eyebrows. The hair on his head is neatly combed back into a short ponytail save for a loose lock of hair that hangs on his forehead.

Richter wears a custom-made suit of armor based on the Rook piece from the game of chess. Several pieces of the polished metal armor plates -such as the great helm, pauldrons, cowters, and gorget- are decorated with bronze tracings and crenelations like those on top of a tower. The great helm that Richter dons in combat situations has auto tinting lenses to protect his eyes when using Chevalier's Torch mode. Under the chestplate, the would-be hunter wears a tabbard, decorated with the symbol of the Linnaeus family: a stout cross made of obsidian, that drapes down to his shins. A black, leather belt holds in place the plates that make up the tassets covering his legs. The buckle of the belt is decorated with the image that he based his armor on: a stone tower. The sabatons covering the tops of his boots are fitted with special mechanized claws that bite into the ground to help him maintain stability while using his weapon, Chevalier. Between the plates, Richter wears a light-weight, high-strength weave body suit meant to protect the parts of the wearer's body that are not covered by plate armor. The armor is quite heavy, so it impedes his movement normally and requires Richter to train in it constantly. To him, his Rook armor is a second skin he almost never wants to take off.

Weapon: Chevalier: Rocket Lance-Cutting Torch
Fighting Style: As a result of his disdain for prolonged fights, Richter likes to take a direct approach to combat. A headlong assault with his rocket lance, Chevalier, is his favorite way to deal with violence, relying on the strength of his armor and fortitude to power through blows he might take in return.
Eyes: Bright Blue
Hair: Platinum Blonde/White
Height: 6' 7”
Weight: 189 lbs. (246.3 lbs in full armor)

Personality: Richter Linnaeus is a strange dichotomy of solid self-confidence and uncertainty. Through the discipline taught to him in his youth, Richter holds fast to the Linnaeus ideals of chivalry and honor. Most anything that he can categorize under the Code he treats with calm confidence and assuredness. Meanwhile, the faunus becomes nervous and unsure of himself if he is ever presented scenarios he is unfamiliar with. In those kind of situations, Richter tries to find a way to either categorize or escape it. Outside of that, Richter has a serious, but peaceful demeanor to him. He prefers to keep to himself and his family, but does interact with his fellow classmates when he needs to.

Due to his upbringing, Richter refers to almost everyone initially as 'sir' or 'ma'am.' He prefer to be proper and civil when dealing with people and is often thought of as a stick in the mud. It just takes him a while to get comfortable enough around people to let his guard down. He tries to remain vigilant at all times to uphold his Code and will go out of his way to perform acts of chivalry. While Richter does have a healthy sense of humor, he subdues himself so as to not laugh out too loud as his voice is quite strong.

-Uphold the Chivalric code of the Linnaeus Family.
--Defend those without the power to defend themselves.
--Uphold the honor women.
--Uphold the honor of the Linnaeus Family and their allies.
-Obtain the title of Hunter.

-Meat; cooked rare.
-Well-mannered people
-Fair fights.

Parents: Maxwell Linnaeus (57)  (Adoptive Father), Lorelei Linnaeus (45) (Adoptive Mother) Biological Parents are unknown, considered deceased.
Siblings: Donald Linnaeus (13) (Adoptive Brother) Therese 'Terry' Linnaeus (17) (Adoptive Sister)

History: Nothing is remembered from very early on in Richter's life. Mr. and Mrs. Linnaeus, a very wealthy and successful family, found the abandoned boy while out for a walk in their large estate and, being rather kind individuals, took him in despite him being a faunus. Later that year, the Linnaeus's first child was born. The girl, whom they named Therese, prompted a fateful step to be taken with their adopted child. At the age of 13, Richter was started down the path to be their childrens' friend and guardian. He was given tutors in combat and mentally 'prepared' for his duties. There were few times in the day he was ever actually able to play with his sister between the basic combat training and sessions hammering the Linnaeus code of honor in his being. Seven years of this type of training produced a competent and disciplined fighter in faithfully subservient to the Linnaeus family.

Unbeknownst to him, the love his 'family' had for him began to changed to something far more pragmatic. They still viewed him as part of their family, but still he did not receive the same type of affection as Lorelei and Maxwell's biological children. It is not certain whether Richter did not know or did not care about the change in how they viewed him, but regardless he took his position in his family as custodian seriously. He traveled around with Terry and Donald, protecting them from anything he viewed as a threat to their safety. Terry's interest in becoming a huntress prompted Richter to volunteer to enroll into Beacon Academy and act as body guard for the girl as she trains. The Linnaeus family as a whole agreed with the idea and granted Richter his request and gifting him his custom armor to help him succeed in his endeavor.
