Hmmm, some thoughts:

I think Ice Dust would have a white or bluish-white color to it to better reflect its Dust properties. Water Dust would have a more aquamarine kind of blue. Although, Earth Dust should probably be included as one of the basic Dust types, and I suspect Lightning Dust is one of those "impure" Dust types.

Actually, that would be a good term to classify Dust on: impurities. Very much like gemstones.

Other suggestions I have: Lava Dust should probably be the result of a fire-earth Dust blend, since it would make more sense.

...

...

...
Also, Gravity Dust is actually black in color. It's even been shown in the series. :p

That would make sense, yes, but there is evidence to suggest the opposite. In terms of Ice Dust, there's Volume 1 Episode 2 (note the blue haze of powdered Dust in the air and the ice bursts) and Volume 2 Episode 11 (Weiss gives Blake a Dust magazine which contains two blue Dust crystals: one is dark blue whereas the other is cyan. We already know what cyan-coloured Dust does, so the ice augmentation of Blake's Semblance must be from the dark blue crystal.) As for water Dust, we've only seen it in the 'World of Remnant' episode about Dust, in which it's coloured a sky blue; then again, the Dust there is somewhat stylised, so there's a bit of interpretation to be had until we see it in the main series itself.

Believe me, I really, really wish that that were the case. It would make things so much easier to fit together that I tried everything that I could to find a way to make that fit with the evidence that I had. Unfortunately, there is fairly conclusive proof to the contrary in the form of both the 'World of Remnant' episode on Dust (watch until 1:05) and again, Episode 2 of Volume 1 (note the yellow haze of Dust powder and the subsequent cracks of lightning).

Stormwrath wrote:Also, Gravity Dust is actually black in color. It's even been shown in the series. :p

This is a tricky one. Considering that we can't really use the 'Red' trailer for evidence since it was made before Dust colours were decided upon, the best example for its use that I found is in RWBY Chibi Episode 3, here. The gravity round has a black muzzle flash but leaves a purple haze indicative of Dust (compare to Volume 1 Episode 2) in its wake, so I'd say that it's open to interpretation.

Stormwrath wrote:Actually, that would be a good term to classify Dust on: impurities. Very much like gemstones.

That is a thought; it could also be used to refer to how much material the Dust contains that isn't Dust at all.

The Semblance Workshop
Week 2

Auric Armoury
List of Completed Semblance Concepts
(feel free to use any of these for your characters)

‘Can metabolise Dust to form an animated incarnation of the power of that Dust. Only one elemental may be formed at once; the elemental consumes Aura at a steady rate, which the user may vary in order to increase or decrease the elemental’s size, and vanishes when it runs out of Aura to consume, either by the user cutting off the flow deliberately or by them running out. The user may also restore the elemental’s form with additional Aura should it become damaged in some way. The elemental is semi-autonomous, taking actions in accordance with the user’s will and knowledge, but not sentient.’


Semblance Concept for Discussion:
(telegram me if you have a concept for discussion)

'Juxtapose: Can consume Aura to teleport the user and a living being whose location they are aware of towards one another until they stand one metre away from one another. The amount of Aura consumed increases with the distance between the user and the being targeted and the mass of the user and the being; the point at which the two meet is determined by the comparative masses of the user and the targeted being in accordance with Newtonian physics.'

So how does this exactly work? Does the user teleport to the target or do the user and the target teleport to a halfway point?

The latter (adjusting for relative mass); is there any way to make that clearer in the description, do you think?

Ah... That would be Yekrenia who, I'm afraid, has CTE'd.

I tell you what, though - I'm actually in the process of creating a new character at the moment who can probably be in a position to interact with Reina regardless of where she is at a given moment (why will become clear when the character's profile is posted). Does that sound okay to you?

It's a pity, too; his and Lucius Aurelius' backstories and characters served as interesting counterpoints to one another. Their interactions would have been fruitful for character development, I'm sure. Then again, there's nothing to say that that can't still happen...

Biography: In central Solitas there exists a cast of gyrfalcon Faunus that call themselves the Tok people, named after the darts that they carry as weapons, whose home is a coastal mountain far removed from the Atlesian settlements to the south. This is a people of traders and craftsmen, hunters and navigators, skilled at reading the environment in which they live and finding thermals amongst the bitter cold as well as wielding the Dust that is plentiful in the region and often employed as navigators or scouts by Atlesian pioneers and explorers who, unusually for their nation but in a way that is perhaps to be expected due to their choice of career, do not tend to mind that they are Faunus so long as they have the skills necessary to earn their keep.
It was in this environment that Tehoronianhen grew up, learning the skills that he needed to survive in this frozen wilderness, and it was these pioneers who first ignited Tehoronianhen’s desire to learn more about the outside world. Thus it came to pass that, at the age of 16, armed with only a harpoon, a set of heavy darts, a pack of caribou meat and the clothes on his back and having taken the name ‘Terrell’ to put himself on an equal footing with the people of the civilisations to the south, he set out to join one of the four Huntsman Academies.
He did not set out for Atlas, having heard of the prejudice against Faunus that was rife there; Mistral, though it was more progressive in most places, was just as problematic in the tradition-bound region of 東洋 - where Haven Academy was based. That left Vale and Vacuo and, despite the clear and obvious appeal of a blazing hot desert to a boy acclimatised to frigid wastes, Terrell decided to make the shorter journey to Beacon, whereupon he passed the entrance exam and entered two years below Team STRQ, becoming a member of Team CLRT. Here he forged Kigittik, a weapon that allowed him to combine the skills that he had learned from childhood as a hunter (he had always favoured the harpoon over the dart as a primary weapon) with those that he was now learning as a student of Beacon. Here he also met Ozpin, an event that was to change the course of his life.
It was when Terrell was embarking on a late-night flight as he would often do at home that he decided to fly to the top of Beacon Tower, wanting to see the city from a vantage point - and subsequently overheard the entirety of a meeting between the first members of Ozpin’s inner circle through one of the many completely open balconies. His curiosity piqued, he decided to spy on them, rapidly gaining information about the world that he would never have had access to before, right up until he was discovered after a sudden gust of wind, almost unnaturally sudden, knocked him off balance just as he landed on the balcony’s edge and sent him crashing into Ozpin’s office.
Ozpin being Ozpin, his solution to this problem of an overly curious, idealistic and determined young Faunus suddenly revealing that he knew most of his secrets was to properly bring Terrell into his confidence, promising him a role under his command upon graduation in exchange for secrecy. This was a role that Terrell - which quickly became Tehoronianhen again after Ozpin encouraged him to embrace his own identity rather than trying to conform to others’ expectations - embraced wholeheartedly when he did graduate. Since then Tehoronianhen has acted as Ozpin’s agent in Vale - though he still does take the time to visit his family up north when he can.
Personality: Tehoronianhen is a happy-go-lucky daredevil. Realising that he is in all likelihood doing more good than bad and that he can’t do much to control the bad that he does in attempting to do good, he takes care to not think too much about the consequences of his actions and just enjoy himself as a Huntsman, seeing the world, helping people, correcting ill-conceived ideas about the Faunus and being awesome while doing it.
Appearance: Broadly speaking, Tehoronianhen’s face has an Inuit cast, short, light grey hair, dark grey eyes and a hooked nose. He wears a silver aviator jacket with white fur trimming, two long slits down the back for his wings and a removable navy blue patch on the right shoulder with his emblem, a white wing composed of diamonds, embroidered on it in the traditional style of his people, white woollen trousers and grey military boots with studs on the toes, though he also keeps a traditional Tok parka for trips back to Solitas.

COMBAT INFORMATION
Weapon: Kigittik (‘Frostbite’)
Appearance: A pair of white, short-barrelled, stockless carbines. One has a tube and a spearhead mounted above and to the left of the barrel’s far end; the other has a tube mounted above and to the right of the carbine’s body. Each has one half of an automatic locking mechanism on the side nearest to the tube.
Capabilities: The two carbines both feature an electrically-driven firing mechanism. They each fire cartridgeless ammunition that consists of a kinetic Dust crystal outer layer and an ice Dust crystal core that extends out of the bullet’s end and, upon impact, forms a spike that the kinetic Dust impels, granting it additional penetrative power; furthermore, with the ice Dust now transformed into actual ice and melting and the kinetic Dust converted to energy, no traceable evidence is left of the user. When the carbines’ sides are placed together so that the two tubes on the carbines’ top are aligned and connected by their circular faces they lock in place and each tube expands telescopically, the one with the spearhead forward past the barrel’s far end and the other backwards, forming a spear with two carbines attached about halfway down the shaft. As part of this process, the carbines’ grips fold into the gun’s chassis and a new grip with three different triggers, positioned facing into the spear’s shaft, folds out of its back half just behind the carbines, attached magnetically to both the shaft and the back of the carbines. Pulling the first trigger shoots both carbines; pulling the second disables the magnets, allowing the grip to detach from the spear and unwind a thin cable, four metres long, connecting the two; pulling the third reels the cable in.
Semblance: Aura Surge: Upon the user’s Aura diminishing to the amount holding the energy needed to carry the following process out, the air around them is rapidly sucked towards them and drained of much of its heat energy in order to completely replenish the Aura of the user whereupon the pressure gradient with the surrounding air causes it to expand outwards as a powerful, chilling blast. This only triggers once and may not trigger again until the user has slept for at least two hours.

Emmet: Okay. What I see are people, inspired by each other and by you - people taking what you made and making something new out of it.
