ImageImageImage
A motivated Huntsman-in-training hailing from a small and isolated town in Vytal. Extroverted and inquisitive, he is fascinated by the world that surrounds him and curious about how it works and the people that inhabit it, but much more prone to experiencing it rather than merely learning about it. His reliability is very dependent on the situation, but he is almost always a good-intended, if only quite gaudy, person. While laidback and outgoing, he has the heart of a soldier, for good and for bad.

Ebb is an energetic youth with a pronounced thirst for adventure. Earnest and optimistic, he is the kind of person who tends to focus on the positive side of most situations or people, and tries to do his best with what he is given without thinking too much about it. He is very comfortable with new circumstances and in fact greatly enjoys discovering things and meeting new people, something that has been further driven home when he finally ventured outside of his hometown and pretty much everything in his life seemed new. He is not very hard to impress, but he does value and respect honesty and humor in people.

He takes things at face value and doesn’t put too much thought into them unless its needed – or rather is being urged to second-guess. Consequently, he is very quick to place his trust in others after only a few gestures of good faith, which absolutely makes him quite naïve.

Depending on your perspective, he can be described as either friendly or loud; he is active and talkative when around people, is very expressive, and his mannerisms are strong. He doesn’t always respect people’s personal spaces, which despite his lack of awareness can potentially bother some.

Despite his love for communicating with others, he has an innate talent to say the worst possible things during crucial moments, and can come off as socially clumsy. At the end of the day though, he is a well-meaning person completely unable to hold grudges against other people, and since he can be very thick-skinned, you’d be hard-pressed to offend him in the first place too.

While not necessarily dumb, Ebb is not very quick on the uptake. It takes more than a few retreads for him to fully assimilate concepts in his head and every new lesson will always come with a good amount of practice to stick – which he more often than not won’t want to follow through with. This is particularly evident in more complex conversations, where it becomes apparent that cryptic dialogue and insinuations go completely over his head. It also reflects in his studies, as the theory has always been more ephemeral than practice for him.

While it is easy to dismiss Ebb as a brutish ball of energy, there is a surprisingly level-headed man behind his loudness. He can be very patient and rarely lets his emotions get the better of him, so he hardly ever has any regrets to hold on to. His ability to maintain his usual demeanor is universal, and even in dire situations involving Grimm, he will in all likeliness retain some degree of calm – his version of “calm”, anyways. This can be somewhat unnerving for those around him during moments of distress, as his lack of hesitance to make difficult decisions hints at a cold detachment from conventional values.

Ebb’s Semblance allows him to place a fixed, circular rune in the air within a short range; anything going through said circle will be encapsulated in his Aura, which will then imitate the original shape albeit doubling it in size. A straightforward but very effective ability, it essentially boosts the range and force of any physical object going through it while keeping the weight unchanged. He mainly uses it to further enhance his weapon’s mid-range dominance or improve its destructive force during key attacks, although it can also be easily implemented in most teams’ composition since its use is not exclusive to him.

This Semblance has a few significant weaknesses, mainly that the larger the Aura projection, the more taxing it will be for Ebb to maintain the amplification before having to rest for a bit. Combined with the fact that it takes a second for him to setup the rune and that all damages to the Aura are redirected to the original object, it is not an ability he can pull off at any time nor use indiscriminately without having to get just a bit clever with his approach. He can only activate two runes at a time.


Ebb’s weapon of choice is a large custom-made staff greatly resembling a halberd named Gigant Ryvolov. It measures an impressive 2 meters and the axe-like head alone is roughly the same size as a chair, making for a weapon boasting great range and raw power. Its main features include a mechanism that allows the axe to switch from one end of the staff to the other in a quick and forceful motion, and the ability to transform into a harpoon cannon with a 100m long steel wire included to connect the projectile to the halberd.

Ebb can wield the weapon in a variety of ways, including arching attacks and stabs while always keeping himself outside the reach of a Beowolf’s arm. Ebb himself can’t pull off many acrobatic maneuvers, and while both the weapon’s range and harpoon mode are meant to compensate for this, it still means he is most comfortable fighting somewhat defensively. His strength allows him to swing the weapon with commendable speed and his outstanding hand-eye coordination, combined with the weapon’s ability to quickly switch sides, allows him to maintain a continuous streak of mixed attacks should he find the opportunity to go on the offensive.

xxxBIOGRAPHYxImage

ImageImageImage
Ebb was born in a very small coastal town in the island of Vytal to a fisherman and a Huntress, both of which remain active to this day. Ebb’s older brother died during childhood in an accident prior to his birth and thus, his relatives were very protective of him during infancy. Since his mother couldn’t always be present and his father was busy often, he was regularly taken care of by distant family and close friends, though he never felt lonely nor neglected and instead claims he has “the biggest family there is”. Despite his mother’s status as a Huntress, he lived a relatively modest childhood, traveling very little and spending a portion of his free time helping his father with work when he had grown.

His adventurous spirit was evident even back then, and with the passing of years it became obvious their little town was too small a world for him. Keeping track of Ebb’s activities became increasingly difficult; just a few minutes by himself would be enough for him to disappear in search of a new cave, a secret beach or any peak he had seen in the distance. Since he didn’t seem to be very receptive towards his continuous reprimands and occasionally rallied other youths in town – mainly his cousins – to accompany him in his escapades, he gained a reputation as somewhat of a problem child.

As Ebb developed a more solid understanding of his surroundings, he began to show interest in Grimm, their influence on the world and the measures humanity was taking against them. It came as no surprise to some when he announced that he too would become a Huntsman one day, fighting to protect humanity’s place in the world while simultaneously travelling around it, like he always wanted. The way he described it, the job seemed tailor-made for him, but for some time no one would have the same opinion.

His family was mostly against the idea, with only his father supporting his decision of throwing himself into what was basically a war. Nonetheless, Ebb remained adamant in his decision, which lead to many arguments within the family. Tackling the issue directly, Ebb’s mother eventually decided to share her first-hand experience with her son in an attempt to dampen his spirits. Surprisingly, the opposite happened and she reluctantly agreed for him to begin his training. Whatever conclusion she drew from that conversation that would completely change her opinion, even Ebb isn’t aware of to this day. Still, he had taken his first step to become a Huntsman, and he was euphoric.

He was accepted into a minor combat academy close to his hometown and began his training while continuing to help his father from time to time. Ebb would not perform particularly well during the first few years of his tutelage, showing difficulty to assimilate concepts, poor memory and a short attention span. Nonetheless, he maintained a diligent yet carefree attitude that endeared him to both his tutors and colleagues, making him easy to work with. It is worth noting it was around this time that the Fall took place, though being in an area protected by natural barriers in the form of mountains and seas, Ebb never experienced the evenbt first-hand.

It was only once the academy’s lessons began to take on a more practical note that Ebb would begin to stand out. He had little difficulty combining the usage of Aura with physical effort, was surprisingly dexterous with complex weaponry and perhaps most importantly, was nearly unfazed upon first contact with Grimm. His grades never improved beyond barely scraping by, but when it came to slaying Grimm he was at a level far beyond other students; some even claim to have seen him wrestle down an Ursa using only his Aura. Steadily, he continued to make great strides of progress across his remaining years in the academy, with his instructors describing him as “very talented and versatile, but inconsistent and unreceptive towards more complex lessons”.

It was his stellar performance in a regional tournament during his final academy year – in which he reached the finals with relative ease – that earned him entrance in the prestigious Beacon Academy.
