So, will Charlotte go into a Heroic BSOD the next time she sees Reina? Or will she try to act like nothing happened?

Hmm, I'm not sure. The encounter will have to happen before I can decide... See, it depends on how it happens. Although technically she's already gone into one...

CHARACTER INFORMATION
Name: Artol
Age: 28
Sex: Male
Race: [X] Human [ ] Faunus
Animal Traits (Omit if human):
Biography:
Originally born in the slums as a bastard child, he grew by himself extremely soon due to his original very rebellious nature, he always fled the home looking for adventure.
Soon enough though, it got him into all kinds of trouble, be it with the white fang or the police due to food stealing and other various things, however, he proved to be extremely resourceful in trapping and running away scot free all the time due to his semblance that opened everything, especially doors or windows, often barricading himself for hours somewhere before his pursuers left him to his own devices.

After a while, he was known as one of the most elusive slum children the police had ever encountered, but what troubled them the most was his half drunk expression, even when he was a kid, his face was the same, however it changed drastically once the pursuit had gone on for at least a minute, passed that delay, he grew so elusive and fast that catching him by running was impossible.

That life continued until he was about fourteen, when he met Leonard, the only one that actually posed a problem to his rabbit like elusiveness, even getting finally caught for the first time ever.
There, he questioned Leonard as to how he figured it out, the latter simply answered that he didn't use his semblance well enough, that his mind was still underdeveloped and still needed to find improvement.
Artol originally took offense to this and tried to set himself free by using his semblance, something he managed to do until Leonard put him down himself with his bare hands, the two laughed like good friends and eventually became closer over the years, even finally getting a home, an actual one.

Then, when Leonard told him about the hunter academies, he chose to follow the young Leonard and help him, unfortunately, fate didn't want it that way and made it so they were on separate teams.
After getting their diploma, Artol grew a bit distant before going completely dark on a recon mission solicited by the country of Vale.

As of now, he has finally made his reentry into actual society but still has missions to deal with, being the highest ranked assassin in the whole country
he is still solicited by high ranking officials.

Yet he just wants a quiet life.

Personality: Feels and seems like your average guy next door, however if one manages to get to know him, he has two sides of himself, he opens up to kids extremely easily however.
His main persona is mostly calm, quite often, he looks drunk to anyone besides himself, however he is quite the trickster and uses anything that helps him to his advantage, including his outward appearance to trick people into either helping him or tricking his enemies into a false sense of security.

The other side he has to him is when he gets into a fight that went on for more than a minute, due to a slightly odd brain condition called C.E.C, he concentrates extremely hard on something should he stare at it for more than a minute.
In this state, his speed, reflexes and overall look change drastically, not only does he look infinitely more menacing due to his eyes being wide open and quite literally burning with hate and anger, but he also acts the part, being ominously silent, not even a sound will be gotten out of him, even gutted, he will stay silent and withstand the pain until he dies or ends the fight.

Artol is extremely resourceful and has been deemed an extremely good assassin and recon even by Atlas standards, he is also known to be able to make up strategies on the fly and make them work ahead of time.

Artol also believes that once someone has gotten him into this over concentrated state, either they run away if they can, or they get killed, lest they kill him before he does.
Appearance: Looks half asleep and drunk all the time, half buttoned light red jacket, long and grey jeans, three days beard, half smile on most of the time, blue-crimson heterochromia, light brown shirt, light red/black hair.

COMBAT INFORMATION
Weapon: Altirael, a custom, personal weapon of his own creation, combining mobility, swiftness, resourcefulness, power and deadliness to the highest possible degree, originally based on Miriel's morphing ability.

Amyen: High velocity laser sniper rifle, think of the XCOM precision laser rifles, extremely powerful albeit slow to shoot with, most powerful weapon in his arsenal.
Appearance: Altirael looks much like an English bastard sword, although some parts change such as the guard or the pommel for instance, giving it a greatsword kind of feel due to Artol's own enlargement of the blade's width that made it ever so slightly more menacing just by seeing it, the blade is also engraved with lots of various runes that Artol himself carved, they are quite expertly made and look like an aristocrat from the Victorian era made it all.

The sheath containing the blade most of the time is also used as a weapon by Artol's standards to to its unshakable parrying prowess against blades or even bullets, it is quite decorated with vine looking lines converging on some points, giving it a pretty Victorian blade type of look.
Capabilities:
First mode: Altirael, extremely powerful and swift retractable blade, often attached to a cable in case he needs to hit further away without using his other weapon, cuts through stone like butter, can be charged up with his semblance or dust crystals.

Second mode: Spider strings: Side part of Altirael hidden in the sheath is a small hilt that houses several hundred meters of extremely flexible and resistant cable ended by a small yet quite deadly little blade, can be redirected by certain movements even while launched, the cable is manipulated utterly by Artol himself, however it was mostly made to help him in tight places and situations since the blade would be too long or not fast enough, Artol mainly uses it to make traps for his enemies and feel everything around him in a ten meter range, if the cable is anchored to a surface that is.

Third mode: Spider blade: The sheath in itself is a part of the weapon as well and is used with the cable strings as well as the sword to create a shield, much like Miriel's however much more practical to use as Artol can unravel parts of the shield to protect himself on precise parts of his body.
However, he loses much of his attacking prowess once he gets in that state as it is much more of a defense type of mechanism.

Amyen: Highly dangerous sniper rifle of his own design, his research proved that using a certain type of lenses could make a laser powerful enough so that it'd cut without being insanely heavy, that said, the sniper rifle is heavy in and of itself.
Shoots highly precise lasers, however the lenses take quite some time to heat up enough so as much as it is silent, using it in a close or mid range combat would get him at a disadvantage.
Can be holstered in a small compartment on his back, however it weighs the exact same.

Semblance: Opening: His semblance, while being quite misunderstood as useless due to the common thought of being only opening doors, there is actually way more to it.
Artol's semblance is vague, and due to that vagueness, he didn't really find anything good to do besides spooking random people by opening doors randomly, however after meeting Leonard, he found way more interesting uses by thinking out of the box, such as opening the air, creating a vacuum by opening the air to make his movements accelerate suddenly or even 'opening' metaphysical things such as one's aura.
Or more... Gruesome things, such as 'opening' the wound of an enemy already wounded to cripple them.
One another example of his semblance is that he can 'open' wind blades, or open laser trails, making phantom hits before the fight even started, however, doing as such takes one of his fingers with each wind blade or trail 'closed' that he needs to 'open' later on.

If his fingers are 'taken' by 'closed' things or his traps as he like to call them, he cannot hold anything with the concerned finger, should it hit his weapon, his semblance would activate immediately, killing the surprise effect.
'Opening' a sniper trail however takes at least three fingers, making it impossible to win a fight with his sniper skills alone.
The main triggers on his semblance are:
-Lightly tapping his weapon's hilt
-Snapping his fingers

However, making metaphysical things 'open' require intense amounts of concentration and willpower, depending on what he is trying to open, it just may overload his mind.
He could also technically speaking 'open' someone's mind to an idea or someone's heart to a feeling, although doing this is nigh impossible to him.
Such as if he tried to 'open' a hole through space and time, chances would be that he'd be able to, not that he would survive to see it through.

To this day, he can only keep something like the air up to at most six seconds, four seconds already being rather tiring, he mostly chooses to rely on two at most.

I fail to see how "opening" the air would allow it to seem like he's teleporting. Light would still make its effects known whether or not air is there. In fact, in a vacuum, light would be more efficient.

I meant it would create a vacuum type of thing and suck him towards the now empty space to fill it.

That would require a massive amount of air to be removed to achieve the high velocities you're looking for. And voids are filled in the same was as many things. The object with the least resistance is pulled in, such as the air around it rather than the relatively high mass person an undetermined distance away. At most, without removing massive a massive quantity of air, like enough to fill a house, there'd be some wind and a funny popping sound.

Looks like I overestimated it.

Even though most of his weapons are silenced, I wonder if he could silence something by 'opening' the air around him to make a vacuum.

Although maybe teleporting wasn't the word, just moving really fast towards someplace by removing the air.

Even though that being suddenly ripped into a vacuum tends to not be so kind to the human body. It's not really a very logical ability. Especially doing it numerous times to look like you're teleporting over and over. First of all, at somepoint in that, you have to breathe. Breathing in a vacuum, at all, for the slightest moment, is a really bad idea. All the air in your lungs will be ripped out, and you'll hardly be able to breathe. rip you.

Not to mention the effects of the whiplash that being violently moved into a vacuum would cause. Even by your description, let alone how vacuums around air works, the movement would be near instantaneous acceleration to an extreme speed, then deceleration to stopping. The human body does NOT LIKE THAT at all. In video games and movies, what REALLY would happen when that hatch to space opens and they grab a bar on the way out, is that their arm would be torn right off.

You don't just go into vacuums without consequences, especially repeatedly. Unless you intended this ability to indeed be far more detrimental than useful, i think you've missed a few logical thought points.

Now that you mention it, yes.
I actually didn't think it through well enough.
At least towards the vacuum transportation thing.

Although maybe I could use it as somewhat of an offensive thing.

I get that you were going for the "explosive decompression" sort of rapid movement thing, but that only works because confined areas of much higher pressure than their surroundings spring a leak, the opposite does not work so well without removing massive quantities of whatever medium we're talking about. As for silencing, yes, it is possible. At the same time a creating a vacuum also means any way of cooling the weapon to get rid of the inevitably generated large amounts of heat has been removed. With the weapon being the way you've described, it will make lots of heat, and quickly become inoperable inside a vacuum.

Well, for the sniper rifle, silencing it wouldn't be useful, since the person that is being aimed at probably won't hear anything anyway.
A laser is pretty silent I think.

I was mostly going for something like covering sounds for a teammate, for instance, if Reina started shooting, he'd be able to silence the sounds, that's what I was thinking about.

A better version of it would be to mimic wind. Change the air pressure instead, including below his feet. This would cause him to momentarily float and be moved with the air moving towards the lower pressure zone to equal it.

Wind can even move, as it does on Saturn, a few machs. Of course, you still have the issue of that rapid acceleration and then deceleration. It won't be quite as bad as into a vacuum though.

Momentarily creating a vacuum is easy. Maintaining for any period of time is virtually impossible with a proper containment vessel. To maintain such a zone for any period of time would take absurd amounts of energy. And as I previously mentioned, firing any type of firearm/laser/heat engine in a vacuum multiple times is an AWFUL idea.

Do you think it'd be able to silence a sound?
Even though most of his weapons are silenced, I wonder if he could silence something by 'opening' the air around him to make a vacuum.

Although maybe teleporting wasn't the word, just moving really fast towards someplace by removing the air.

A better version of it would be to mimic wind. Change the air pressure instead, including below his feet. This would cause him to momentarily float and be moved with the air moving towards the lower pressure zone to equal it.

Wind can even move, as it does on Saturn, a few machs. Of course, you still have the issue of that rapid acceleration and then deceleration. It won't be quite as bad as into a vacuum though.


True, but his semblance is 'Opening', not changing air pressure.

So it wouldn't really work just as well.
Although maybe warp his bullets. Or his teammates bullets rather.

Well, for the sniper rifle, silencing it wouldn't be useful, since the person that is being aimed at probably won't hear anything anyway.
A laser is pretty silent I think.

I was mostly going for something like covering sounds for a teammate, for instance, if Reina started shooting, he'd be able to silence the sounds, that's what I was thinking about.

Momentarily creating a vacuum is easy. Maintaining for any period of time is virtually impossible with a proper containment vessel. To maintain such a zone for any period of time would take absurd amounts of energy. And as I previously mentioned, firing any type of firearm/laser/heat engine in a vacuum multiple times is an AWFUL idea.


Ah, I see.
Oh well, it still doesn't get rid of what I wanted to do with it.

Just imagine the damage he could get before passing out.

Do you know how the longest sustained areas of extreme low pressure in earth's atmosphere have been created? With nuclear detonations. They lasted for a couple seconds.
