Arterius; Zane; Human
Name: Zane Arterius
Nickname: Z, Zay(Parents), Zaney (Older Brother)
Class: One Star
A Strong Body
Appearance: Zane has short red hair, with blue eyes and tanned Caucasian skin. When he's at school he wears a Black and green coat with a white under shirt with black pants that have grey and purple stripes with white red and black shoes as well as black and red gloves. On some occasions wear's a light plain brown jacket with a red and black baseball cap. He carries with him at all times a small blue pendent with a ruby in the center with a silver chain around his neck that he keeps hidden under his shirt. When he's not wearing gloves, on his right index finger he wears a silver ring with his last name on it ( Which now has a scratched line mark going through it) given to him by his father after Zane's first big fight as a symbol of being a member of the family.
When Zane is not at school he wears a white tank top with his pendent visible, with black shoes and basketball shorts.While wearing the tank top it's clearly visible that Zane is muscular showing just how strong he is. When looking at his chest you can see old bruises and marks from all the fighting that he used to do growing up. These day's he doesn't really show a smile often keeping a blank face through most of his conversations except during battle where he grin's a lot. Originally he had blonde hair, but after a while he decided to change it to red which sometimes the blonde can be seen under.
Height: 5' 9.
Fighting Style: Being from a Mixed martial arts family he focus on the fighting style known as " Muay Thai" relies on his speed to get up close to his opponent as fast as he can so he can use his strength to take him out with a mixture of jabs, hooks, kicks, knee thrusts and an occasional grapple, he does everything he possibly can to being up close for the whole fight. If he lands the first hit he starts to get cocky which in turn he starts to leave himself more open to attacks. Even in the face of defeat, as long as he can stand he will continue the fight even if he knows he can't win. While in weapon form he tends to be more relaxed and tries to make defensive advice towards whoever is wielding him but if sees an opening he wont hesitate to yell at his meister to go all out.
Personality: The past few years have had a negative effect towards his personality, he has grown to have trust issues with people and it's hard for him to share with just anybody how he's feeling. When he's with people he trusts he'll occasion cracks a smile, he's caring and he'll do whatever is necessary to keep them safe. Since joining the school he feels awkward trying to converse with fellow student's, the feeling of acceptance is rare for him him and so when in conversation he tends to look down when he speaks avoiding making eye contact.
When Zane was younger and around his brother he was a completely different person, always smiling, laughing and cracking jokes. While at the same time very competitive trying to show to his brother that he's strong and can take him on, nowadays thinking about his brother he feels betrayal. Zane's father brings out the hate and sorrow in him, on occasion when he's alone he will cry thinking about the mother he never knew and how his father and brother abandoned him upon learning his weapon abilities. When asked about his family, Zane gets defensive about it and quickly changes the subject.
Although he is shy towards other students, whenever he's with a team his shyness is replaced by confidence and shows more of a team leader personality, constantly encouraging his fellow members as well as holding longer conservations in battles. Whenever they return from their assignments he reverts back to his quiet shy personality.

History: Zane Arterius,named after his grandfather who was just a simple guitar maker, born and raised in a small town in Georgia. His father was known throughout the state as an undefeated fighter, a legacy he wanted to start and have all of the Arterius men to carry on for generations. Zane never knew his mother, by the time he turned 2 his mother, while out of state visiting family, was killed by an unknown weapon succumbed by madness. Since that incident the unknown dark weapon vanished, whether or not the academy dealt with it, or simple went into hiding remained unclear and plagued Zane's father with thoughts of "was she in the wrong place at the wrong time?" or was there some motive as to why she was targeted". Throughout his life, his father refused to talk about his mother so he never knew anything specific about what she was like or how she died, just what she looked like from photos. Drake vaguely remembers what happened, but all he knew is his father blames a weapon and his complete hatred towards them, a feeling that Drake began to share with his father. As soon as Zane and his older brother Drake came of age, he started to train them. Drake become undefeated in Georgia, and by the time he was 18 instead of making a professional career out of it, he chose to become a trainer, which their father accepted since Drake already gained the reputation as undefeated like him. When Zane became 8 years old his training began and had one goal, do what his father didn't and travel the world and be the greatest undefeated MMA fighter, and for the next 7 years Zane trained with his father and brother, winning numerous fights with kids his age and the occasional couple years older kids. When he wasn't training he lived a normal life, hanging with his friends, seeing movies with his brother, Father sons baseball games, as well as attending school. He excelled in math, and though he enjoyed learning, he had no intention of attending college.
At the age of 16 Zane was entered in his first official tournament of kids the age of 15-18 out in California, which he wasn't favored to win. Over the course of the tournament he struggled in every fight, but still managed to grapple and uppercut his way to pull through and win each fight. Finally the championship round against 18 year old Jeffery Parks, who was known as the "demolisher" for his ability to release an onslaught of attacks, not giving his opponents a moment to strike till they were knocked unconscious. All money was placed on Jeffery and to a big surprise, against all odds Zane came out on top. 5 minutes into the fight and it was over, at the start of the round Zane went full speed, utilizing a mixture of knee and kicking techniques, not letting Jeffery get the chance to make an offensive move, till finally Zane found a great opening. Jeffery moved his arms downward to block the repeated knee blows which left his upper half exposed, using this opportunity he put all his strength in a left hook right to the face for the winning blow. He was crowned the undefeated victor, proud of his victory, images of Zane's dream of become the worlds greatest fighter were filling his head and was looking forward to seeing what his future would bring. Sadly this moment wasn't to last long, for later that night his world was turned upside down.
Later that night while Zane was waiting outside for his family, he was approached by 5 men who began to surround him. They were angry because they bet a lot of money on him to lose, being drunk they decided to get revenge on him. Being able to hold some of them off, it became to much for him and was overwhelmed, they managed to get Zane on the ground when one of them pulled out a metal bat. After a couple swings of the bat they proceeded to break Zane's left arm, at that moment he realized he had the power of a weapon. The second his arm broke and he felt the tremendous pain his arm became a black blade and stabbed one of the attackers, shocked by this all the attackers but the one stabbed ran. Zane then heard a scream and looked to his right so see his family looking at him with scared faces, calling him "monster" and "stay away". So after that Zane ran from his life, feeling abandoned he spent the next few months traveling finding a place to belong while focusing on trying to control his abilities, till finally he learned of the academy and set off to start his new life there.

RP Sample: It was a rainy Thursday night a few months after Zane's weapon incident, living on the streets in a lively city in California, despite the rain the streets were crowded with people and their umbrellas. As the rain continues to fall it's unclear whether the sound of people laughing outshines the sound of the actual rain as it falls upon the city, the lights from buildings and streets are giving the city a magical glow with the lights reflection gleaming from the water puddles. The people of city go about their nights as if there isn't a care in the world, oblivious to what really happens deep in the dark corners of their city. At 8pm a bell chime from the cities clock tower is heard throughout the city, and looking down upon the it in a group of people walking up and down the street a man wearing a black and green jacket, Zane Arterius is seen standing still looking at the clock tower as the rain drips down his face.
After the 4th bell the clock tower once again laid silent, Zane looked around at all the people and wondered to himself "How can people just not give a care in the world?". He closes his eyes and with a small smirk he shrugged his head and proceeded to walk down the street with both is hands in his pockets. As he walked by the crowds he started to reminisce about a memory he once shared with his brother when they were kids, how they used to run up and down their hometown streets playing tag and no having a care in the world. His brother Drake would turn to him and with a smile on his face told Zane "Zaney, when were older you and I are going to see the world, brothers taking on the world!" Drake would proceed to grab him by the head and mess Zane's hair up and say "Together always!". The memory started to fade from Zane's mind and in a soft voice he said "together....always?". In an instant a new memory flooded into his mind, of the night when he first discovered his weapon abilities, and the scared look he saw his brother and parent's gave him and how afraid of him they were. In an angry low voice he said "Together always Drake?, where are you brother? do you even consider me as your brother anymore?".
Zane continued walking down the busy street until he came upon an open alley entrance where he heard a cry for help. Zane stopped where he was with his right foot in mid air and looked to his right to see a old man getting robbed at gun point by a thug wearing nothing but all black. Zane looked around at the other people walking by, unfazed by what was happening in the alley as if they didn't see or hear anything. Zane proceed to walk into the alley and picked up a piece of wood that was just laying there and chucked it at the thugs hand forcing him to drop his gun. The old man took this opportunity to run out there saying thanks as he ran passed Zane. Angered by this the thug picked up his gun and pointed it at Zane's head and screamed "YOU PUNK" as he squeezed the trigger. With the bullet whizzing by, Zane just stood there unflinching as the bullet headed towards him until it made contact with Zane, skimming the side of his cheek leaving a bleeding cut mark. As the blood began to drip down the side of Zane's face mixed with the rain it created a somewhat light red puddle under his feet. Zane gave out a big sigh and chuckled and replied "Punk eh? I guess that makes you a coward, using a weapon on unarmed innocent people, it also makes you a loser for not knowing how to aim right". In a roar of a voice the thug yelled "Why you..." as he squeezed the trigger 3 more times. As the bullets penetrated the rain drops falling from the sky, Zane gripped his hands and made a dash for the thug using the water on the ground from the rain to slide closer. The first bullet completely missed the second grazed his right leg almost making him fall, and the third made full contact with his left arm, in a scream of pain Zane's blade sprouted from his left arm. The thug shocked by what he saw and the speed Zane continued to approached him at, prepared to fire again, but before he could Zane was already up close, grabbing his gun and forcing his left arm up to the thugs face with the blade penetrating the cheek. Zane began to grin as he whispered in the thugs ear "It's over". Within a split second he mad a thrust with his left knee into the thugs stomach with enough force to knock him back on the ground a few feet. As the thug looked up, Zane's back was already facing toward him. The thug was able to see his reflection on the black blade coming out of his arm, dripping with water from the rain above. The thug, out of breathe said "you will pay for this weapon, one day!", Zane turned his head and replied "Bring it, but if I catch you hurting people again, I WILL END YOU!"
