This looks fun! ^^ I just hope more people join..
Name: Slate Branwen
Personality: First of all, he doesn't seem to like his dad, for reasons. He's usually pretty serious and doesn't really respond well to authority. He doesn't like other people telling him what to do and will sometimes even blatantly ignore anyone who tries, unless they have gained his respect. Usually if he doesn't ignore them, he'll be openly rude to them or do the opposite of what they told him to do. He tends to have a smart mouth sometimes and is not above sarcasm. He gets annoyed easily, especially when people don't take things seriously. He also despises anything to do with bars or alcohol. Although he may not show it much, he actually does care about his friends (A.K.A. his teammates).
Appearance: He has short-ish, messy, slate gray hair and slightly pale red eyes. He has a light tan skin tone. Also, being a faunus, he has dark grey fox ears and a dark grey, fluffy fox tail with a dark maroon tip. His canine teeth are extra sharp and his nails can turn into sharp claws.
Attire: a dark gray T-shirt, dark gray jeans with a couple rips in them, black combat boots that go halfway up his calves, a black trench coat that goes a little past his knees, has a hood, is dark maroon on the inside, and has three small spikes in a row on each shoulder
Semblance: His aura is red, like Qrow's and Ruby's. His semblance allows him to sap some of the aura of other people, letting him temporarily use their semblance. Once he saps some aura from one person, he can't sap any from anyone else until the aura he already sapped is depleted, not including his own aura. When he is attacked while he has some of someone else's aura in his body, only his aura is affected. The only way another person's aura can be depleted from his body is if he uses that person's semblance. Usually when he saps a person's aura, he can only use their semblance once or maybe two times before their aura is depleted from his body. Also, physical contact with someone is the only way for him to sap their aura.
Weapon(s): His primary weapon is, of course, a silver and black sythe with a couple dark maroon accents, similar to Qrow's and Ruby's in appearance, but also different. It turns into an assault rifle or a sniper gun, though he typically prefers the sniper form for long range.
Bio: He was born a couple months before Ruby, as a result of his dad having a one-night stand with a woman at a bar one night. When he was born, his mother gave him to Qrow to take care of, not wanting to take care of Slate herself. Qrow couldn't really look after him all the time, with his info-collecting job and all, so he got Slate set up in an orphanage, but not as an adoptable child. He made a point to visit Slate as much as his job would allow and he tried his best to be a good dad. Though Slate asked about his mother a lot when he grew older, Qrow always told him that his mother was dead, but that she was a good woman, afraid that if Slate knew the truth about his mother he would think that he was just a mistake and start looking down on himself. Unfortunately, though, Slate eventually learned the truth about his mother and that was when he started getting bitter towards his dad and more serious, though he still kept his Branwen rebellious streak.
Family: Qrow Branwen (father), Raven Branwen (Aunt), Taiyang Xiao Long (uncle by marriage), Yang Xiao Long (cousin), Ruby Rose (cousin, though not technically blood-related)
Crush: Open (Just ask. ^^)
Other: He didn't even know he had any cousins until he became a student at Beacon, but he will most likely start to think of Ruby as a little sister later. X3
