Violet Vanek

A second-year student at Beacon Academy.

0 · 268 views · located in Vale

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

Description

Name: Violet Vanek

Age: 18

Gender: Female

Hair: Dark brown. Chin Length with bangs.

Eyes: Black

Equipment: Her weapon is a lance for close combat and becomes a rifle for ranged combat.

Semblance: She can call vines from the ground and direct them with her hands. They can be thick, but can be severed and destroyed, and they have a maximum range of about 30 yards.

Appearance: Violet is on the shorter side, but not remarkably so. She has a stable, pear-shaped body. Her skin is a warm, amber color and lacks blemishes other than a handful of faint freckles spattering her nose and shoulders. Her eyes are almond shaped and set under thick eyebrows. She's generally put together and clean. She stands with her weight placed evenly on both feet.
For clothing, she wears a short skater dress, which is a light, metallic purple color. She wears a short sleeved, dark purple jacket, usually unzipped unless she needs the lapels out of the way. The jacket has a few pockets with silver zippers. She wears green, knee-length bike shorts. On her feet, she wears shiny violet ankle boots with 3 inch high heels.

Personality: She is a little solemn and not one to crack jokes, but underneath that somewhat cool and aloof exterior, she has a large heart and is quietly passionate about the things she cares about the most. She is patient and deliberate. Her decisions are measured and she generally tries her best. She's not always the best team player, wanting to be by herself most of the time. She's never early for anything, and is not infrequently late, but will invariably show up. She's certainly a pessimist. She feels a great deal of pressure to do well.

Backstory: Violet comes from a relatively poor family and is the middle of three children. Her parents are farmers, and her father's parents, who live with them, were hunters, but have both since retired for various reasons. For a long time, her grandfather was the one who made the most money in the house, but that changed when he was paralyzed. Violet wanted to help people as well as have exciting adventures like her grandfather, so she went to school to become a huntress. Her grandfather put funds for fixing his back into his grandchildren's education. She is close to her family and contacts them frequently.

So begins...

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…?"

Donnchad’s glance turned up and around at the movement. The grip on his weapon tightened as he quickened his pace to catch up with the others, only for Death to break onto a steady jog.

“OK, so I guess we’re running there now.” He wasn’t about to argue. If the other town was nearby enough to keep up such a pace, then getting there faster would mean less chance of an unwelcome encounter.

Although he didn’t run ahead of Violet, instead waiting for her response. He preferred to stay at the back of the team - it was the best position for him to use his semblance if they were caught by surprise.

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.

The grimm Violet blocked with her lance made ready to retaliate only to end up skewered on Neasclaw. With a yell Donnchad swung his weapon in a wide arc, tearing the best open and inflicting minor wounds on a couple of beowolves that had paced up to him, however this only served to irritate them. They snarled as he jumped back to assess the situation. Death was doing her usual rampage of destruction thing, but Violet seemed to be playing more carefully.

He decided on his course of action, and edged nearer to Violet. From here he could help her deal more damage to the enemy while having a good viewpoint so he could assist Death with occasional shields.

“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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Argent came to a halt once the sword-wielder gave him his full attention. Another eyebrow raised below the bone-mask, and Argent's lips pulled into a grin. His pelt-cape shifted, and from beneath rose a hand that waved in greeting. Argent held the wave a moment longer, before turning away from the group and instead moving directly for the bar. Maybe he should just... Leave them be, for now.

He wove his way around a few of the tables, head pointedly turned away from the group. He sat down at the bar, ordered a water, and otherwise stayed quiet and out of place. Occasionally some of the older patrons would walk up, say hello and chat amicably with the silent figure, who in turn would face them and wave before letting them talk. It's responses were silent, and little more than waves, head nods, shakes, and shrugs. After each person left, the mask would immediately turn back to the group and their golden-eyed counterpart.

Argent watched the quartet from the corner of his eye, his mask leaving no real way to see which direction his eyes might be looking in. The golden-eyed woman had spoken quite a bit, before she stood up and left them alone. His brow furrowed- unseen as it was- as the scythe-wielder bonked her head against the table. Looks like the woman had some... Effect? Hm.

He stood, pelt-cloak swishing about his body as he strode over to the table curiously, taking no time to just maybe think about his actions. "So... She seemed nice! And flirty, eh, eh~?" A grin spread over Argent's lips, while mentally he screamed at his lack of forethought. They didn't know him, and he didn't know them! And now he's trying to start up conversation as terribly as possible for the sake of getting some laughs- "Wait unless she was actually really threatening or something? You've all got these looks on your faces, and I get the feeling that it's not cuz'o my clothes for once.

Donnchad went rigid as he heard an unfamiliar voice behind him - he'd completely forgot about the stranger and spun round only to face the grim visage they were wearing.

"Gah! Monster! A skull-monster is talking to us!" he blurted out, flailing his arms 'defensively', causing him to stumble and lose his footing. He tripped, slipped, and crashed onto the table of the booth which consequently toppled, leaving him in a shambles on the tavern floor, clutching his head.

Groaning, he opened his eyes. "Oh, it's, er...you?" he remarked, coming to his senses.

Argent blinked behind his mask in silence, tilting his head down to stare at the man who was now rather suddenly on the floor. A heartbeat passed before one gloved hand came up and tilted the mask back enough to expose Argent's mouth. A smile spread across the whole of it as he leaned down and offered his other hand. "You ah- took a tumble there buddy!"

Laughter spilled from Argent's lips as he held his hand out to the sword-wielder, mirth bubbling out from his throat at the theatrics. "Am I really that startling? I mean, I haven't really had the chance to see myself in a mirror but hey!"

Argent turned his head only slightly towards the speaker, choosing instead to lift his mask until it exposed the entirety of his face. Hazel-green orbs slid over to Violet, and the grin dimmed just somewhat. "Ah, well... Y'all are the only hunters to come through here in about a week, other than the group I was last travelin' with. I was curious, and maybe I jumped the gun but y'all started askin' about that one chick who uh," His voice dropped to a low murmur, brows furrowing curiously, "got blamed for the attack on beacon."

He turned his head towards the slumped over scythe-wielder before returning his attention back to Violet, raising an eyebrow while doing so. "Look, I'm not here to cause trouble, at all. As a matter of fact... I would like to help y'all out if I can. That woman had been in town for a little bit, and last I saw of her she was a little bit, as one would say, suspicious. Or maybe that's just hunter's instinct." Trailing off, Argent sighed and waited for a response.

Donnchad grumbled, staring at the floor in shame. Although he still allowed the stranger to help him up. Now the figure hand lifted their mask back, he didn’t seem so shady. Being able to see who they were talking with helped Donnchad calm down a little.

“Thank you.” He muttered, as he begrudgingly began setting the table and its contents back in their right places while Violet interrogated the masked figure.

“…You’re calling her suspicious?” he asked eventually, gesturing in the direction the golden-eyed woman had left with his free hand while placing flowers back into a half-emptied vase. He stopped to look more closely at the new arrival. “Hang on, I’ve seen you before…wait, aren’t you in our year?”

((Ah- Oh no... That's no good, did they leave any reasoning why?))

Argent was mildly taken aback by the swordsman's abrupt revelation. His head tilted, a bird-like gesture before it was replaced by a wide grin and a small laugh, voice rising into a mildly teasing lilt and volume. "Are you sure you saw me, and not some other skull-monster that could talk?"

He sighed soon after, rubbing his face before turning to Violet once again and assuming as non-confrontational pose as possible. He gave her a 'winning' smile as it were, though in reality he only ended up making himself look cheeky and impish. "I've got a few questions to ask her is all! I don't mean her any harm unless, y'know, she means myself any. I wanna know why she'd do somethin' like what happened, and I'd like to know if she's got any connections to what happened to my own family. I ain't got anythin' else to do either. No home really to go back to considering and seeing as how Beacon's a bit of a," A shrug, followed by less of a smile and more of a grimace, "mess. Pretty sure the last thing they'd need at the school is me hanging around like some sorta ghost. Y'know?"

((Hi sorry I haven't posted in so long, I will try to be more active from now. That's a shame about Draruto, I don't know how well I'd do playing the character but playing multiple characters sounds tricky, is there some way I could help?))

"Haha," Donnchad laughed nervously, getting back to clearing up. It was relief that the stranger was someone from school at least. They could probably trust him more than most of the other people they'd meet here. Donnchad was just in the middle of picking up the glasses that hadn't broken when he mentioned his supposed motive for helping them find their estranged teammate.

"We're hoping to find her and clear her name." he said, standing up. "We don't think she would've done something like that. At least...not willingly." He eyed the skull-wearer suspiciously.

"What's your name, anyway?"

((Hi guys! Sorry for the huge delay... I've been having some personal troubles and work has been less than kind as of late. I dunno how I'd be able to help with playing Death, but I would certainly like to try))

"Argent! Argent Ag-Mian." Another cheeky grin, before it watered down to a generally polite smile. "I was a year two at the school, just like you three! I don't think we had any classes together..." He sighed, standing upright and giving Donnchad a very quick once over before turning to Violet as well. "And how about you two? Your names? It'd be kinda odd if I'm the only one with a name to a face here!" His voice rose just a little, though it was with mirth and amusement rather than anything else.

He found that he liked the two speakers, Donnchad and Violet(though their names weren't known to him just yet), were interesting enough, and weren't at all what he would've expected from other year-two students. He understood that Violet might not trust him, but Donnchad seemed... Amicable! Pleasant enough to be friendly, but smart enough to be suspicious. Good traits!

The girl had the same air, but she looked to have the most drive, maybe? She was interesting in her own right, and Argent was more than curious about what made them so loyal to the 'supposed school traitor' as Argent had been calling her... In his mind... To himself.

((Draruto just said they weren't feeling it anymore.
And don't anyone ever feel bad about not posting here ever again. It's all good.
I don't know what to do about Death, to be honest.))


Violet frowned. Argent looked very normal under that mask. It was almost stranger than if he had some horrible disfigurement. "Guess that's a good enough reason to be interested." She fiddled with her jacket zipper.
Donnchad's remark gave her some pause. Well, he did look familiar, and since she couldn't quite place him herself, she just decided to believe Donnchad. "Oh, yeah, I guess I have seen you around," she said. She tried to arrange herself in a more confident posture, but she just looked uncomfortable. She hesitated for a moment when he asked her name, but finally said, "It's Violet Vanek. Nice to meet you, I guess." She rubbed the back of her neck. Argent knew things that they didn't, and now he knew what they were up to, so...
"Well, look, if you want, I guess you could help us. You need help too, right? So maybe," she glanced at Donnchad, trying to gauge his reaction, "we could work together a bit."
