Name: Skyler (Scooter) Azul
Age: 56 years old, 25 January
Symbol: Shattered white glass, surrounded by a circle of blue flames.
Occupation: Professional outlaw. Scooter is the getaway car. He knows every car, truck, and airship ever made inside and out and is considered nearly untouchable once inside anything with an engine by the police.
Scooter is also a demolitions expert, and will often not charge his clients or lower the initial price if the explosion turns out to be big enough.
Appearance: Scooter is an old man, complete with slightly saggy skin and wrinkles. This has not however gotten rid of the muscles he has spent his life building up. His hair has completely greyed and he has grown out a big beard that reaches down to the middle of his pectoral muscles.
His body is littered with scares and tattoos from all the gangs he has joined up with in his long life of crime and thrill seeking. Most prominent of these tattoos are; a black and red snake curled around his left arm from his hand to his shoulder with the head reaching all the way to his chest and is depicted eating his heart, a chain wrapped around his neck in a choking motion, a broken grandfather clock on his right shoulder, and a knife carving out a message into his back “try me at your own risk”.
As stated Scooter is muscled, almost bulky, at his height of 5 ft 6 in. He often wears little in terms of clothing, preferring a plain light blue t-shirt with no design and a simple pair of baggy jeans. Add in his brown cowboy boots and you have his 7-day long look. Any additional items on him is mission essential, so typically a bunch of guns and car keys.
History: Scooter grew up within Menagerie, an extremely poor part of the world where one had to be strong, both physically and mentally, in order to survive. Being a Faunus heavy population, being forced there by situations created by hateful humans, Scooter and his family were not welcomed by their neighbors and never received help from the cummonity, not even when they were robbed of both their money and their food. Five times this happened; five times, they were left to fend for themselves. Despite this Scooter never once felt hatred for the Faunus as a whole, and after a falling out with his father at 17 he took off on his own through the forests in an attempt to reach a kingdom to call home.
After arriving in Vacuo, Scooter very quickly learned his life has made him stronger than most around him. Now Skyler Azul never once in his life claimed to be a moral person, and he sure did not start there. He quickly found his way to low-level gang’s hide out and offered them his services in exchange for food and later membership. After a few quick jobs of holding up small stores and collecting a decent haul, he was made a member of his first gang, and this would mark the beginning of his true life.
For the next 20 years, Scooter would indulge in a life of crime, drugs, money, fun, and he has never been happier in his entire life. He learned everything he needed to know from experience and he fellow gang members. He became a master mechanic, an expert in firearms, a formidable hand-to-hand combatant, and has built himself high enough in the criminal underground that he quite his gang became a solo mercenary for hire, however he does give his old gang a VERY generous discount. This solo act has led to many crazy adventures in his lifetime, most of them entail running from the police and never once being caught after getting into a vehicle of any sort.
Years later (almost current time) he meet up with a strange hunter team, ZEUS, believing they were there to finally put an end to his life of crime and fun. After about 3 hours of fighting them off with fire and daring escapades throughout the city of Atlas they finally caught up with him to inform him that they were not hunters, and instead wanted to start a mercenary gang, with him as their ride. Seeing this as the next and possible the most exciting chapter of his as of yet, he happily agreed, and has sense been doing many jobs for rich clients as well as Juniors gang, awkward seeing as Scooter has screwed him over in the past…..three different times.
Personality: Scooter is unstable. There is no denying that his years of constant adrenaline, drinking, smoking, and the occasional snort of some dust has caused him to belong in an asylum…..a very, very, very heavily guarded asylum. He takes an almost sexual joy in screwing over the police and the rich rulers of the kingdoms and is constantly laughing at pretty much anything that goes their way.
He is slightly rude, easily distracted by shiny things (and cars), impulsive, a (not on Zeke’s level though), and one of the most loyal friends you will ever make in your life time.
Strength: Scooter has taken out hordes of police officers and rival gang members single handedly thanks to his unpredictable nature and his sheer determination to finish his job regardless of what has to be done. When he isn’t taking a joy ride or getting his passengers the ride of their life he is on the ground fighting. Moreover, he has a very special way of fighting. Never ending gunfire. He is a expert on nearly all types of fire arms and is also a master at demolition and explosions. His insanity leads to him defying all odds, often winning his fights simply because his enemies never considered that a mortal man would be stupid enough to do some of the things he does.
Weakness: Scooter is NOT a hunter. He is NOT a hunter in training. He is essentially a very brave, strong, and lucky gang banger. This puts him at a serious disadvantage in fights with actual huntsmen. Students he seems to be able to handle just fine, but if a pro shows up his first instinct is to find a vehicle and get his ass out of there.
Semblance: He only recently awakened his semblance due to never really thinking he needed one, therefore he has not mastered it. He has the ability to harden anything he is in direct contact with. There is no adjusting how hard the object gets; it is set to a proportional scale. For example, his regular shirt can become a bulletproof vest.
This is not last forever though, as the longer he uses it the lower his aura gets.
Again, Scooter is by no means a hunter. Therefor he holds more than just one weapon at all times. This is a list of his favorites over the years.
