Donnchad Cedar

A second year student at Beacon

0 · 596 views · located in Vale

a character in “RWBY: Proof of Innocence”, as played by DragonDunc

Description

Name: Donnchad Cedar

Age: 18

Gender: Male

Hair: Brown, short

Eyes: The same brown as his hair

Equipment: Donnchad uses a traditional looking longsword made a light bronze coloured metal. There is a dust compartment above the hilt which he occasionally uses to add elemental effects to his attacks. The trick up his sleeve is that the blade of the sword breaks into segments and extends into a 2-meter chain for attacking at a distance.

Semblance: He can summon a flat shield which will protect up to four people up to 10 feet away from him against almost any physical attack. However, he must spend his aura to summon the shield, and it becomes more draining the bigger it is. He can hold it in front of just himself for about 20 seconds before he runs out of aura, and about 5 seconds for four people. The shield cannot move relative to Remnant itself, and only one can be out at a time. Elemental dust attacks can damage it more easily, but explosive and kinetic attacks have some of their energy absorbed which actually restores his aura level somewhat.

Appearance: Standing at average height, Donnchad tends to have his slightly patchy eyebrows furrowed in thought, usually fretting about something irrelevant. A small patch of hair has accumulated on his chin which he seems to think makes him look more like an adult. Apart from this there’s nothing remarkable about his appearance in general.
He wears a plain white shirt and dark green trousers with a pair of sturdy walking boots. He also has square spectacles. For protection he has a beige padded vest brown dark brown hemming which is fastened on his left side, brown leather gloves, and greaves and gauntlets made of the same material as his sword.

Personality: Donnchad has a nervous, high strung temperament and often gets caught up in little details. He likes the company of others, but it often doesn’t seem that way because of how socially awkward he can be. He strives to be helpful and responsible, but oftentimes just ends up being a wet blanket.

Backstory: Donnchad grew up in a small village outside the kingdom. It was attacked by Grimm when he was still a young child. During the attack, he ran off to find one of his friends, but ended up in just as much danger as they were - luckily they were both saved by some Huntsmen and Huntresses who showed up just in time. Since then, he’s enrolled at Beacon to become a Huntsmen so he can help people in the future.

So begins...

Donnchad Cedar's Story

Violet held her weapon tightly in her right hand as she wandered through the village. She, along with Death and Donnchad, had been searching for almost a week with hardly anything to show for it. This was the last lead that they could follow, but even then it wasn’t good: a large part of the town had been destroyed and there were clear signs that Grim had been there. There were plenty of signs of resistance as well. Shredded plant matter was decaying on torn up paving stones and other than the occasional rustling of small animals through the rubble and underbrush, there were hardly any signs of life. This had been something of a pattern so far.

Violet glanced over her shoulder at her companions before she ducked through a doorway into a more intact house. There was a great deal left inside, but no signs of injury. Hopefully that whoever lived there got away safely. She seated herself at a desk and began searching through the drawers, though deep down she didn't really believe that she'd find any clues.

Donnchad edged into the village with the others, scanning the area around them. When he was satisfied that they indeed weren’t currently under attack from hordes of monsters, he loosed his grip on the sword sheathed on his back - he’d been clutching it since they’d got here, as usual.

As Violet entered one of the abandoned houses, Death turned to Donnchad and told him she was going round the other side to investigate. He started as if he were about to tell her to be careful splitting the team up, but thought better of it, and just nodded instead. “We’ll cover more ground this way.” He said to himself as he paced back toward the entrance to look for trails. If people had evacuated, they may have left through here.

That was when He received a phonecall informing him that there was some sort of trail leading away from behind the house. He set off immediately, striding to the area Death was checking.

Violet’s scroll gave a series of cheerful beeps. She snapped it open with a brief greeting, listening to Death’s message. “You’re probably right,” she said. “I'm coming.” It took a moment of searching before she found Death. There was nothing there beyond what she'd expect, just old human prints and the like. "Well, I guess somebody went this way. I dunno when."

Her fingers flexed around the grip of her weapon. "So, I guess we follow them." She opened up her scoll again and checked through a map that she had downloaded. "There is a town that way. It's a good a bet as any, right?" She glanced between her companions. "Any objections…?"

"Death, wait up." Violet started after her a few seconds late, having to nearly run a few paces to catch up. “Please slow down.” She jumped at every sound in the forest on either side of the path. Her finger traced on the button that would fully extend her lance. “We’ve been lucky so far with fighting, but—” Her breath caught in her throat; something flitted in the corner of her vision. She glanced back at Donnchad, checking on him. “Well, let’s just be careful.”

Violet gritted her teeth, frowning at Death’s back shrinking with distance. She’ll get herself killed like that, she thought. Her gait, stuck somewhere between a run and stiff fast walking, was starting to hurt, especially in the tense muscles of her thighs. At the very least, it helped her feet fall more lightly. The silence of the surrounding path made all of their footsteps sound uncomfortably loud, or at least they sounded that way to Violet. She hung back a little until she was next to Donnchad. “I guess," she said. She gave Death a pointed look. "I think we'll have to run whether or not we want to."

Donnchad was nodding to Violet when his attention was caught by the sound of growling and clanking mechanisms ahead of them.

"Oh no." He said, looking up to see Death running straight into a fray. "Oh you've got to be-"

Donnchad broke into a sprint. He'd almost run out of breath by the time he caught up, His weapon's scabbard clicking open. In one wide movement he swung his sword, Neasclaw, from its sheath, over his back, underarm, the blade just scraping the ground, and pressed the switch so that when it swept up it extended into its chain form, an ascending strike aimed at whatever target he could hit best from behind Death. He then grabbed the pommel by his left and and slid into a wrath-guard stance.

Violet hardly meant to release her lance (which she had dubbed Thorn), it was more her hand twitching on the release once she realized the trouble that Death was in. Stupid, stupid, stupid! she thought, sprinted forward, pulling Thorn away from the ground so she would not trip. With a strong thrust, she managed to at least distract a beast bearing down on Death. Blood dripped out of the wound and dripped onto the leaf litter as the grim turned toward Violet. It leaped at her. She blocked it with her lance.

Violet let Death do as she pleased, getting the feeling that even if she did try to help, it wouldn’t be all that welcome, not to mention dangerous. She used her semblance to trip up one of the beowolves bearing down on Donnchad. When it turned its head to snap at the vine, she lunged forward and pierced its neck with Thorn. With a careful cut, she drew one of the others a little farther away from Donnchad, trying to give them both more room to maneuver. She jabbed at it once she'd moved away, her the point slipping through a narrow gap in the hardest parts of the beast’s hide. Her attention was divided: the whole time she fought, she was prepared to engage her semblance to assist her comrades.

((Sorry for the poor quality on the end there; I’m exhausted.))

“Thanks!” Donnchad called out as Violet used her vines to deal with the grimm. Turning his attention back to a couple of the beasts about to pounce at him, he jumped back. As the slightly larger one examined its quarry, the smaller one rushed in straightaway. That’s what I was counting on, he thought, hand outstretched. The young beowolf hit the shield hard, with a whimper, and he ran it through with the sword. The other was now on the attack, but a couple of aura-enhanced cuts forced it to retreat for a few seconds.

It was now that he heard Death shouting for them both to get out of the way. He looked up at his teammate, now basically a plummeting tornado of destruction. He turned to Violet. “We should probably do what she said.” He turned sideways and ran as far away as he could get while keeping his attention on the advancing grimm.

In lieu of a reply, Violet began a swift retreat. As she went, a rock struck the side of her head and drew blood. It knocked her off slightly off balance and she had to resist the urge to put a hand to her wound. A Grim took the opportunity to snap at her side. Violet just barely managed to slip out of the way. Its teeth closed an inch or two away from her ribs. She gave it a solid jab in eye with the butt of her lance and while it turned, she stuck its flank with pointy end. It turned and fled into the woods. Once Violet had made it to a safer distance, she brought up a thick tangle of vines to offer some protection. At the very least, it would be something. Watching Death, her lip twitched. She turned away and put her back almost to Donnchad’s. The Grim were looking more and more distracted by Death’s display, giving Violet opportunity to put down another with a cut. She kept an ear open for a change in Death’s situation, but didn’t look back.

Violet covered her eyes with a hand and kept her mouth clamped shut. Grit irritated the inside of her nose. She sneezed. After the dust had settled, she let down the vines. While Donnchad ran to Death, Violet took a look around to make sure that all of the Grim were truly dead. She rotated the shaft of her lance. Her jaw was clenched hard enough that it started to hurt.
Hearing Donnchad speak behind her, she turned to face him. “I, uh,” She knelt next to Death and gave her a quick look over. She bit her lip. “I have bandages, I think. Other than that…” She retrieved her scroll from her jacket pocket. The digital map was still open. “It doesn’t look like the town’s far off, so if we had to, we could probably carry her.” She took a long, shallow breath then seated herself more comfortably on the ground. She patted the ground next to her by way of an invitation.

Donnchad breathed a sigh of relief, collapsing into the ground. He shuffled into a seated position with his hands planted on the ground behind him.

"I need to get one of those weapons that you can drink coffee out of." he remarked, brushing a little dust off his clothes as he sat more upright. His gaze was still flitting across the treeline despite the grimm having been taken care of.

Some help I was back there, he thought as he regarded the undergrowth, which seemed docile enough for the time being. They’d need a few minutes to catch their breath - while he was waiting, he took Neasclaw back from the ground where he had just dropped it, casually cleaning the little bits of mud off on the grass. The grimm blood had dissipated by now.

"I'm sure you are," she said. She didn’t look at Death. She dusted off her skirt. She took a few deep breaths. With a small click, she buried her face in her scroll again, tracing over the route on the map, then flipping through her messages. There was nothing much there, not even a message from her parents let alone a message from Ivy. She snapped it shut, then collapsed Thorn back into its cool, smooth cylinder. One hand pluckd at the hem of her skirt and the other rubbed the knuckle of her thumb. Her eyes darted over the quiet brush. The birds were coming back. “Let me know when you’re ready,” Violet said. “I am when you are.”

"You took the words right out of my mouth, Donnchad," Violet said, straightening her hair as she started off down the road again. "It's getting kinda late." She resumed her constrained fast walk, making sure not to stray too far ahead or behind from the others. For the rest of the walk, she said little, trying to ignore the pain in her limbs.
Within a half an hour, they reached the outskirts of the town. It seemed well protected, with a wall and metal gates, and when the group approached, a gentleman with a tense face stopped them. "What are you kids doing out here? It's not safe."

Donnchad collapsed onto the ground as soon as they were at the gates, watching the conversation unfold. He stood up as scythe user entered and gave the man an apologetic shrug as he walked through the gates, hurrying to catch up.

“You mean in training,” he corrected her without thinking. He usually tried not to annoy Death because, truth be told he was quite scared of her. He silently hoped he hadn’t ticked her off with that comment, and scanned the surrounding street to occupy his mind. Eventually he found himself entering the hotel as well.

“Do you think we’ll get any leads by asking around here?” he asked any team members nearby.

Violet kept her eyes more or less on the ground in front of her as she entered the town. Maybe things would look better in the morning. She kept abreast of Donnchad. "Do you have any better ideas?" She asked him. She regretted her tone the minute she said it, but didn't apologize. "It's the best we've got." She tagged along to the hotel. "I think Death's got the right idea, though." She pushed through the door, her eyes taking a moment to adjust. She made her way to the bar. "Excuse me," she said, "I'm looking for a girl. Um…" She pulled up a picture of Ivy on her phone. "This girl."

Donnchad tagged along to the bar, scanning the room to see where Death was while Violet did the talking. He was never great at this part of their work. Death, he saw, was sorting out their room. She seemed to have spotted someone she recognized but by then Donnchad’s attention was already back on the bar. However, it wasn’t long before he’d received a message telling them to rendezvous at one of the booths.

He looked at Violet and shrugged. "It could be helpful." He would wait to see what Violet decided to do.

Argent became aware of some... Characters of interest the moment the purple dress swished into the building. She was followed by a young man with a sword on his back. Before them, having moved to the desk, was a woman who had a scythe on her back. What.
Behind a mask of bone and cloth, a single eyebrow rose higher than it had in the past week he had been staying in the town. The huntsmen and women he had been traveling with; two teams of four, had stopped off at the beginning of the week, and then abruptly taken off. He had woken far too late, having missed the group message they sent him, and thus was left behind.

For the faunus at the desk, the sight of the lump of silver and white cloth and bone suddenly shifting into a standing position was startling. The ... Man? Teen? Woman? Had been staying at the hotel for just over a week, and had been prone to just waiting in the downstairs lobby, doing nothing. Occasionally it... They? Would get up and move to the bar, order a small drink, and then wander away again.
For Argent, he was far more curious to follow the three who had just walked in, and immediately begun to look out of place. It was interesting! And he was far too curious to see what they would be doing.

Violet looked at the scroll, giving the message a quick scan. She rubbed her forehead with the heel of her hand, trying to push back the beginnings of a headache. “I guess we might as well see. Out of the corner of her eye, she noticed Argent watching them. The hair stood up on the back of her neck. Maybe it was just paranoia, but she still kept glancing back at him as she walked toward the booth. She gave Cinder a quick look. “What’s going on?”

What the gold-eyed woman had to say was certainly interesting - Donnchad should have been paying attention but he had allowed his focus to be drawn elsewhere. Since entering the lobby he’d been trying to scan the room in case of trouble, and one very odd looking figure had stood out in particular. He hadn’t paid too much heed until the bone-clad stranger had stood up, and from out of the corner of his eye it looked like the figure was looking at them.

Instinctively he began to reach toward Neasclaw’s hilt, but he shook off his surprise and lowered his hand.

“Er, sorry,” he apologized to Cinder in embarrassment, in case she’d noticed him not listening properly (and almost reaching for his weapon), “I think someone shady looking is watching us.” It was obvious he’d noticed the stranger now, so rather than trying to stay inconspicuous he half turned toward him and looked squarely at the concealed traveler.
