AURA & SEMBLANCE.Oran's aura is green in color. The feeling of this aura is very cool and can warm, however it can also drop to very cold temperatures if he is stressed, depressed or even simply when he's aggravated. Oran's aura is usually calming but still holds a very strong coldness to it. Oran's semblance allows him to have an easier ability to climb and run, making his body feel lighter than usual. However, this doesn't last entirely long. The average time depends on the condition of his body but can only last upwards of 3 minutes.
WEAPON.Oran's weapon is named Twin Cubs. His primary weapon are his gauntlets with claws at the very tip. He has a small handle underneath which he uses to properly hold on to them. They sit above his hands and curve down. He uses these to attack in a very rough style. Usually trying to aim the claws directly at his target. The tip of the claws are razor sharp but have the ability to flip up, revealing gun barrels. This gives Oran the opportunity to shoot dust ammunition but because the minimal amount of space, it's limited and needs to be refilled often. He shoots green (wind/air) dust. Otherwise when the dust is empty he still has ammunition left for regular bullets. His handle is used as a trigger. So he opts to use this method of attack less and chooses a more offensive tactic, preferring his claws or medium sized daggers.
Oran's weapon is versatile in the sense that not only can it shoot (limited though) it can form into a medium sized dagger for an easier offensive approach. The little handle he holds onto can be removed and stuck into the base of his gauntlets to provide as a hilt. The claws can combine to make a blade which together forms medium-small daggers. With this he has a much more loose and defensive style, and it's not as rough and direct as it is when he uses his gauntlets because he's provided with a little more to work with.
(Trigger warning this sketch is hideous and done in only a few mins lmao ;w;) Example of a crappy rough sketch for visual reference: http://i.imgur.com/7VTK2bb.jpg
APPEARANCE.Oran has black messy hair and brown eyes. He's a bear faunus with bear ears but outside of school tends to hide them under a green sweater. While at school he tries his best to hide them under a pair of goggles that act a little like a headband. Oran is considered slightly short, although it depends on the person. He stands at about 5"5 to 5"6 (he often argues it's for sure 5"6 out of embarrassment) and has a very thin pale figure.
Outside of school he supports a green sweater with a white t-shirt underneath. He usually has the hood on and his goggles hanging on the top. He usually just wears green pants (which finish at about the knees) which make his outfit look a little like a track suit.. Oran has a tendency to wear converse shoes a lot and has pajamas with bears on them.
PERSONALITY.Oran is pretty chilled and laid-back. However, he can get very defensive about certain things (like on the topic of mistreatment of fauna) and when fueled can become stubborn and loudmouthed, often saying things he doesn't really mean. If he's not peeved off then he's usually pretty cheery and open, this does not reflect how open he is with his feelings though. He tends to keep his problems to himself despite his open nature; even keeping things from people he's close to.
This ties into his tendency to walk away from a problem. He calls it 'hibernating' in which when he himself has a problem, or sees someone else he's involved with (a teammate, friend, family member) he'll likely try not to hide and not stick around so he doesn't become apart of the issue.
Despite Oran's seeming lack of remorse it's more because he's afraid of making the problem worse. He usually thinks it's better to leave it and let things resolve on their own. Even though he acts this way it does not take away from the care and support he gives to his friends/family/team. He does have a capacity for concern but becomes a bit of an introvert when a problem arises, which can become a problem in itself.
Oran is a huge glutton despite his small size and lean figure he can eat more than his weight in food but because he lives an active lifestyle doesn't retain the weight. He's protective of what's his (mostly food) but can be that way with friendship.
Not having a lot of friends as a little boy has made him a bit of an awkward egg of the bunch, or rather, bear. One thing that he surprises people with is how clingy and touchy he gets when he cries.
HISTORY.Oran was born away from the rustle and bustle of the city. His mother and father owned a cabin in the woods. His father and father were both former partners and huntress/hunter but now made jam for a living. Deciding to give up the life of a warrior (due to having Oran and more personal reasons) they decided living a quiet together (they were engaged but never ended up getting married) would be satisfying enough.
However, that didn't turn out to be the case. Oran was a rowdy child, vanishing and appearing on a daily basis because of his curiosity and willingness to explore. Luckily his mother had everything handled. If she could handle grimm she could surely handle an energetic little boy. But Oran really did not make things easy on them.
When Oran turned five his mother admitted to his father that she wanted to return to the duties of a huntress. She missed the thrill and the passion for protecting. His father tried to persuade her they had a child to protect, however he gave in. He was just concerned about keeping their happy little family together.
Being out of the game for five years left his mother having to get back in the groove of things. One night she went off to complete a job, but never ended up coming home. Oran and his father are not sure whether she's alive or dead. To them, she simply vanished. This was when Oran began to become more interested in the jobs of huntresses/hunters and had his father speak of his experiences and telling about his team; and about his mother when they were younger.
This caused Oran to become more curious and interested in the world outside of a forest. On a trip to his Uncle and Aunt's he discovered more about the city. He experienced the foods, the lifestyle and much more for a short time. Oran got acquainted well with his one cousin who was going to start training to become a huntress. She explained the basics to him and that's when he decided he wanted to do that too.
Oran experienced discrimination as well when one store refused to sell him food, and being the stubborn boy he was he argued and got thrown out. He managed to befriend a mouse fauna and unfortunately she was a bit of a bad influence because they almost ended up trashing the store. The two of them got in a fight with some human kids which was when Oran started to show a knack for agility and speed.
With the help of his cousin and his father he was able to construct his first ever weapon. He lived with his Aunt and Uncle while training with his father and cousin before being enrolled into Beacon Academy as a first year.
