Viewing profile - Cassandra Lavay
Combat: She will wear a full set of medieval style plate mail. The armor is a dark gray color, and she has her emblem on each shoulder as well as on her gauntlets.
Out of Combat: Given that she is of humble means she typically sticks to plain clothes. She’ll wear jeans and knee high boots for her lower body. Then a neutral colored T-shirt or simple blouse on top with a brown pea coat style leather jacket added in when it’s cold out.
Cassandra has green eyes and long red hair that comes down to the middle of her back. She has something like a swimmer’s build where she has somewhat broad shoulders, and toned muscles. However, neither of these features are too extreme as she still has fit feminine figure over all.
Cassandra is an incredibly compassionate and caring person. Her loyalty runs incredibly deep and she will go to the ends of the kingdoms for those who are close to her. However, this can lead to her passions controlling her more than common sense. On top of that she can also show a bit of a stubborn at times.
Despite her incredible caring for others she also believes in straight talk, and will call out even the best of friends for something she deems foolish.
In everyday life she used to be fairly easy going, although recent events have caused her to be a little more serious. Her past has also taught her to be incredibly humble and appreciative of even the smallest kindness. This humbleness shows as she doesn’t possess anything extravagant save her armor and her motorcycle.
When speaking with students Cassandra will try her best to maintain a professional and formal demeanor. Although, there are certain topics and people who will lead her astray from this.
Early Life: She was born in Atlas daughter to two parent in the military. At Age 9 they moved down to Vale where she would have a fairly normal upbringing until their passing at the hands of some Grimm when she was 14. As her side of the family had essentially been shunned from the rest that stayed behind in Atlas she was forced to grow up quickly not only having to take care of herself, but her 6-year-old little brother.
Teens: From 14-19 she was incredibly busy. Between school, taking care of her brother, and working whatever job she could find she almost had no time to herself. As money was scarce the only place she could afford to live was in a very poor area of the industrial district. Ultimately, she was forced with a decision either continue scraping by with odd jobs at the risk of becoming homeless, or take a less safe route. After much contemplation, she ended up joining a group of mercenaries that mostly just served as body guards for the affluent when they wished to venture out of the kingdoms. It was here that her dormant powers awoken. She proved herself to be an incredible combatant to the point where one of her regular clients a member of the social elite asked her why she hadn’t intended on becoming a huntress. After she explained her situation the woman made a few phone calls, and an offer was made available for her to go to the academy. Again however, as much as she wanted to pursue this incredible dream she was still raising her now 11-year-old brother. Fortunately, for her she had been working for the group for over 3 years and was extremely well liked. To the point where one of her good friends offered to take him in while she attended the academy, so long as she continued to help as much as possible.
Beacon: Her time at Beacon was again very busy as she not only was training to be a huntress, but spending virtually all her free time fulfilling her obligation in raising her brother. Still despite all these she ended up being incredibly successful becoming leader of Team CRZY which was comprised entirely of Faunus aside from Cassie. A team which ended up placing as high as second in the world tournament, and graduated at the top of their class
Post Beacon: Her team ended up sticking together after graduation, and ended up building quite a reputation for being incredibly efficient with any task presented to them. This reputation brought them all over Remnant serving in whatever capacity was needed. This included rapid response to Grimm, Recon unsettled area, and much more. Two years after Beacon she also ended up getting married to her one teammate Zander.
6 months leading up to return: Recent events have been incredibly hard on Cassandra. On a mission to scout out an area for potential settlement they were overtaken by a swarm of Grimm. This ended up resulting in the deaths of her husband and one other member of their team. Falling off the rails she spent a few months in Vacuo essentially drinking her life away. However, at the pleas of her one remaining teammate they went back home to Vale. On her way, back the transport went down in forever fall, both her and her remaining teammate got severely injured until they were rescued by her brother and his friends. It was here seeing what her brother had become that she decided to rededicate her life to being the best huntress possible, and after much physical rehabilitation she is prepared.

"Cassandra Lavay, on behalf of Beacon Academy, I would like to commission your time and efforts. Our teachers are an amazing asset to this fine institution, and while they are all trained huntsmen themselves, we would rather not risk their lives, and or our famed efficiency, in teaching the students field work. That is where you, and other huntsmen and huntresses come in, we are willing to pay for your services in taking students into the field, and showing them what they are truly up against. Please respond when you can, I will await your confirmation. -Violet."

Sword: In their standard conversion, they are dual long swords with 3 foot blades. In this configuration she focuses on counters and power bases attacks
Glaives: The blades can be flipped so they are horizontal running down the exterior of her arms. In this form, she uses much quicker agility and speed based combo attacks. Also, in this form the hilts double as firearms.
Her swords were also build specifically for the use of dust as small veins filled with the matter run up and down the blades.
Adrenaline Rush (Die another day)
Cassandra’s semblance is essentially a cheat death. Passively she has an incredibly power defensive aura, greatly increased physical durability and regeneration factor. When suffering, a mortal blow he aura essentially expends itself restoring her to health. However, this process is incredibly taxing. She will only be able to continue fighting for a short while, and will need to rest and recover for quite a while afterwards.
