Okay I'm just gonna throw this out there. Here's my team for RWBY I call them Team JEST because they specialize in Trickery and Deception. If you are wondering about the color theme or theme in general besides being named after people who've used deception in literature they also each have a name referring to a type of metal in some way. Please share your thoughts, but keep them constructive. I will add more but let me know what you think of this one first.
Captain: Jester Asgard
o Appearance: Around five foot nine in a dark purple zip up hoodie with
yellow lines running down the sleeves, with a slight collar around the
neck, similar to a jester's collar. Typically has his hood normally up,
in black pants and shoes with his symbol on the back of the hoodie and
his weapons chains attached to the sleeves and connected to devices
strapped to his belt. His hair is a mix of purple and yellow, with it
having some hanging bits that resemble a jester's hat. His symbol is a
o Weapons: A pair of large hooks, attached to chains that are capable of
being extended well over a hundred feet at high enough speeds to embed
themselves in stone and other items. The chains can also quickly reel
backwards at high speed to pull Jester towards his opponents.
Additionally using the handles on the hooks, he can push them down and
reveal a mussel below each hook allowing them to work like a pair of
o Personality: Like his name, Jester is a born trickster and prankster,
who loves above all things to mess with his opponents, both innocently
and in a more malicious sense. When not in battle he'll use casual
misdirection, jokes and riddles to mess with other people, frustrating
them with strange sentences, comments and the like in order to confuse
them. At times he even uses his semblance to trick them using his
ability to shape shift to make them say or do somewhat embarrassing
things for amusement. Though he doesn't typically become cruel or
selfish he isn't above it either, using his transformation to invoke
psychological warfare, not being above using a persons darker secrets or
simply turning into a family member or friend in order to get the upper
hand in a fight if necessary. He is also intelligent and not extremely
arrogant, knowing he has weaknesses and isn't afraid to have his
teammates pick up the slack for him. In addition he's also a very active
person who very rarely sits still, practicing acrobatics or even
various types of poses and handstands when not walking around. He also
has a love for various fruit flavored candy canes and rarely is ever
seen without one in his mouth, which he doesn't care to share.
o Abilities: Despite being the smallest of his group, Jester is arguably the quickest of his team, being highly agile, flexible and acrobatic. He fights using a style combining Gymnastics, Parkour and Breakdancing, to create a very fast, acrobatic and chaotic style of fighting, never relying on pure punches or kicks, but rather unpredictable movement and building momentum to deliver powerful strikes. One of his preferred attacks is latching his hooks either into the ground behind his opponent or onto their shoulders and then rolling into a ball and colliding with them at high speed. In environments he's extremely quick, leaping from trees, rocks and covering terrain very quickly with ease. He is similarly quick in terms of reflexes and his senses, though his biggest weakness is a lack of physical strength, as he relies more on momentum he builds up from moving around so much to add extra power to his strikes. As such his normal strikes down have a large amount of power behind them, which is especially a problem for larger and tougher opponents. Additionally this means if he's held down in a single
position or can't move, then his fighting power decreases significantly.
o Semblance: Trickster, an ability that allows Jester to effectively transform himself into people, animals and even inanimate objects if he so desires in order to trick his opponents. The duplication is pretty convincing as he does take up the parties appearance, weight and overall body mass for the most part, even duplicating their voice. When turned into animals like birds, he can even use their natural abilities like flight or breathing under water. However, this does come with it's own difficulties, his ability to transform into others is more for stealth or manipulation as the shift in body type makes it impossible for him to use his own fighting style or weapons effectively. It is also possible for him to use the ability to transform, atleast parts of his body into different dust elements, but he needs actual contact with dust to do so and usually it's restricted to just his arms, legs or occasionally his upper body, but is more draining.
