Join the ranks of Remnant’s prestigious Academies as you fight to protect the Four Kingdoms from the clutches of the evil Creatures of Grimm. Alternatively, you may work towards bringing the world to its knees by fighting against the last sparks of humanity. Red Like Roses is based on the hit web-series RWBY by Monty Oum and Rooster Teeth Productions.

What will happen this year?

AURA & SEMBLANCE.
Alphonse's aura is the same malevolent shade of red as his eyes. The aura gives off a feeling of cold, dread, and immediate danger, though part of that is usually from looking into his eyes in a fight, which has been known to paralyze people with fear, though that is not his semblance. Despite this fear-inducing aura of coldness, there is a part of his aura that feels more like a cozy camp fire than a deadly blizzard. This one spot is only found on the right side of his chest, over his heart. He calls it his soft spot since it's located in the sappiest place possible. His aura is strange in that, rather than active shielding or weapon enhancements, his aura can be used to actively and rapidly heal any wounds (within reason) at a much faster and stronger rate than normal aural healing abilities. His semblance is also an odd one in that it has nothing to do with the nature of his aura. He simply refers to his semblance as his sixth sense, as it allows him to see, in a sense, in all directions within a radius of 20 feet, but he cannot "see" through the ground for a reason he has no care to find out. He can sense ants crawling between blades of grass, but he cannot sense a worm crawling through the dirt beneath him. The limited range of his visual prowess also means he excels in melee combat but his vulnerable to ranged attacks from outside his sensory field, and he is totally exposed to attacks from underground. He tries to cover up these weaknesses by never staying still in a fight; if he isn't attacking or defending, he is swaying or moving in some way that would make it hard for a sniper to shoot him in the head, which is the only part of his body that isn't protected by his armor. Unfortunately, there is a weakness he cannot cover up. Using his semblance places a great strain on his body, resulting in fatigue that usually sets in as soon as the adrenaline has left his system. The longer he uses his semblance, the longer he has to rest afterwards. There is even a certain point where it can cause so much fatigue that he will immediately pass out once the battle has ended. Combined with battle fatigue, he can sleep for a week if it's bad enough.
WEAPON.
Demon's Wrath The Demon's Wrath is quite simply a testament to Al's incredible strength. The weapon itself is a large warhammer too heavy for any but the strongest (namely Alphonse himself) to pick up. Of course it is not just a simple warhammer. The hammer has a single side on the head for hitting, much like a carpenter's hammer, but the back of the head has a high powered booster rocket built into it to provide a massive speed boost when triggered. The rocket is powered by a mixture of crystal red Dust and powdered pink Dust. Like all Dust-based weaponry, the use of this rocket booster requires him to use up some of his Aura, but years of training have made that aural drain per use very minimal. Of course, the rocket booster is not the only trick this weapon has. The head of the hammer is able to open up and reveal an axe blade, turning the weapon from a warhammer for smashing to a battleaxe for cutting. When he uses this weapon, Alphonse tends to use smashing attacks with the hammer or slash at weak spots with the axe, relying on his incredible strength and the velocity of his weapon's rocket boosters to get results.

When he fights without his Demon's Wrath, which is most of the time, he uses martial arts and raw strength, which he has in great excess. His fighting style has been described as more akin to dancing than really fighting, as he moves fluidly, never missing a beat and never pulling punches. Every strike delivers massive force that would send an ordinary human flying or shatter Grimm armor (depending on thickness).

BONUS: Has a rather large stockpile of powdered pink Dust in order to refill the rocket booster in his Demon's Wrath whenever the powder component is depleted.

PERSONAL PROFILE

APPEARANCE.
Alphonse is a tall man who is built like a tank. He has fair skin, as well as spiky black hair with a hint of blue in it that reaches down to his waist with his bangs framing the sides of his face, covering most of his right eye. He stands at 6'3" and weighs 232 pounds (mostly muscle). His eyes are a menacing shade of red. In formal situations, such as at work (school), he wears the Haven faculty uniform, albeit slightly modified. His casual dress usually consists of a black t-shirt with blue pants and bandages wrapped around his shins, as well as a pair of Eastern combat sandals. In battle he dons blue fingerless gloves with metal plates on the backs and a blue high-collared,, long-sleeve mantle that splits down the lower half; over the mantle he wears crimson armor with numerous metal plates, forming protective guards along his chest, waist, shoulders and thighs.

PERSONALITY.
Alphonse is, in he truest sense of the word, a warrior. He lives for battle and has been violent ever since he was a child. He knew from an early age that he wanted to be a hunter and fight Grimm, whom he considered to be the greatest enemy to humanity. That's not to say he's simply a brute. Alphonse is a complicated man who inspires hope in some and fear in most. He has a great intellect and is a genius with military strategy, Unfortunately, he never really uses his genius in a fight because he'd much rather fight alone and put his own skills to the test every time. There are few people in Remnant he will trust to keep up with him in a fight, and those are the only people in the world who have earned his respect.

Of course, fighting is not the only thing he loves. Alphonse is a notorious drunk and a lecherous bachelor. He has yet to meet a woman who impresses him enough to capture his heart even at his age. At this point he is sure he'll never settle down and have kids, but that is not set in stone. Of course, anyone who manages to pierce his heart and discover his soft side will find that he is gentle and kind deep down. At this point in his life, only his parents, his deceased little sister, and Gray Accone, as well as a little girl he had saved years ago who reminded him of his sister.

HISTORY.
Alphonse was born to an average family in the city of Sanguis. From a young age he learned that the world is a harsh place and, for some reason, he reveled in it. He found every excuse to fight and get stronger. He knew from the age of five what he wanted to do with his life and he saw the Grimm as the greatest challenge he could find, so he dedicated his life to becoming strong so that he could fight them.

To that end, Alphonse enrolled in Sanctum Academy at the age of 13, having already become an experienced fighter and a natural genius when it came to military tactics. His kind, gentle little sister, Sarah Cadmar, looked up to him and saw im as the coolest big brother any little girl could have. During his time at Sanctum, he designed his weapon, the Demon's Wrath. While he enjoyed using his swords in fights, he found it was too easy, so he took to fighting with his bare hands to enjoy the thrill of battle and the feel of his fist connecting with his opponent.

One evening, during his final year at Sanctum, Alphonse and Sarah had gotten lost in a small forest not far from the city. It was relatively peaceful until a shriek had filled the sky as a Nevermore attacked, swooping in and snatching Sarah up before Alphonse could do anything to stop it. Alphonse watched helplessly as the Nevermore, along with a second that had followed, tore Sarah limb from limb, raining blood and gore onto the ground below. His sister had been taken, killed without warning or even time to understand what had just happened. He didn't even have time to say good bye, as she was long dead by the time her head fell into his lap. So he ran, crying, eventually finding his way back into the city, drenched in blood and permanently traumatized.

Eventually, as the years dragged on, his grief and rage turned into strength, fueling him to become stronger so that he could fight Grimm and anyone else who threatened the existence of innocent people like Sarah. He attended Haven Academy, being in the same class as the future headmaster, Gray Accone. He was one of the strongest students of his year, especially physically. He also made good grades despite his violent attitude, being quite adept academically as well.

After he graduated, Alphonse took up drinking almost as soon as he was old enough to legally purchase alcohol. He fell into bad habits, namely booze, sex, and more fighting. He was on a dark path for a long time, only kept from falling to crime by his morality. It was eventually Gray who saved him from himself, offering him a job as the assistant headmaster of Haven Academy, thus making him a metaphorical demon on a leash. Of course he still drinks, fights, and sleeps around, but he tries to hold back for the sake of the students.

OUT OF CHARACTER

ALIAS.

FACE CLAIM.
Naruto Shippuden, Madara Uchiha

INSPIRATION.
The last name is a combination of Cadmium Red and Maroon, but for the most part he was inspired by his faceclaim and "Rasputin" by Turisas. His weapon was inspired by the tank class of Earth Defense Force 2025

ANYTHING ELSE.
The amount of people he respects can be counted on one hand, and Gray is #1

Referred by:At this point I think you know the answer to this

PENDING

As per RLR's rules, a Semblance must have a drawback of some sort. Additionally, a Semblance being "always-on" would place a strain on his Aura that would likely outpace his Aural regeneration, so it's best that that ability is toggled.

You only need very minor edits before you're approved. Feel free to message me directly when you make those edits and I'll put you through.

I removed the part about it being a constant ability, but the weakness I intended for it was that anything outside of his field, if he can't detect it with his five senses, is completely unknown. Such as a sniper or a subterranian Grimm.

"If it does not fall within his detection field he can't detect it" is not a drawback, that's simply the effect radius of his ability. A drawback is a downside to using the ability, not a limitation of its base effect.
