Mavro rarely wears clothing with very bright or vibrant colors, often enough preferring to wear a mix of dark colors instead. he also seems to refuse wearing white as often enough his semblance would stain colors that are too light. He is often seen wearing a black V-neck shirt and jeans to match, his shoes are often left ink stained as they shine in a rather dull grey.
His combat attire is similar to his casual attire, having dark colors being preferred over vibrant or bright colors. He wears the same V-neck shirt and jeans as well as the same shoes. The only difference in his outfit is a vest with multiple pockets lining it, allowing him to carry spare dust vials as well as extra vials of ink, infused with dust.

Mavro is fairly short for most of his family, which seems to always tower over him. He is very slim to and his hair is a light chestnut brown, completely clean due to him actually paying attention to his hair's hygiene. His eyes are a light shade of blue and his skin color is fair with very few faded ink stains covering his hands. Additionally his features are quite smooth, almost like that of a little kid.
Side Note: I can happily thank Dre, who plays Luni Tune on site for the facial photo you see, he does have a DeviantArt for commissions and he does them pretty well.
Mavro is a shy individual, and an introverted one at that. He has had very few friends and isn't very sociable, often preferring to play with the nice little figures that he creates with his semblance than to meet others. Though on occasion another person would interest him just enough that he'd actually break out of his shell to talk to others. Naturally his view on life is seen as little grey, even considering his mild loneliness in his early life. Additionally he can be a trickster when the option arises. The fact is, he is a very sheepish person.
Though what lies behind this shy and sheepish exterior is a brilliant mind that can often think of situations that others couldn't. In fact, his greatest weapon is his mind when one thinks enough. He is an extremely imaginative person too.
And other than the current facts known, Mavro is an optimist in all regards, seeing the best of a situation despite the dark circumstances that may have been known.
Backstory here -->
Mavro's kill list also Here -->
Styló is a spear, one just about as tall, if not taller than Mavro with the speartip just ending six inches above his head. the spear itself takes an appearance to a fountain pen, with the tip bearing similarities to such. the internal workings of the spear contain two chambers, one for his ink, the other for various types of dust that combine with said ink. The tip of the spear partly opens up, allowing blobs of ink from Mavro's semblance to mix with dust, which can lead to what some could call 'ink bombs' being launched at his opponents. Additionally the speartip is not meant for melee combat and more for enhanced use of his semblance as well as dust use.
The mechanism working the speartip folds back, revealing a nozzle for allowing both jets of ink and dust to be shot from it, effectively allowing the spear to be a dustthrower. Connected to the nozzle is the fusion chamber.
Alongside the fusion chamber is moreso a set of two chambers that feed into said fusion chamber. 1st chamber is 1 big container for ink. 2nd container is several smaller containers that rotate to change dust types, collectively same size as the ink resevoir.
With this also comes the many vials of ink, all cleverly infused with dust, mainly burn and freeze dust. These vials are actively used with his semblance, allowing him to send inky fireballs with a napalm-esque effect as well as send frozen shards of ink at his opponents.
The Ink Splotch
Mavro's life was quite lonely, lonely indeed. His semblance was something that had sought to fill that bit one could suppose. the long and short of his semblance is that he can create and control the many facets that is ink. he can often enough control the coloration, thickness, and shape of ink. often enough the blobs can assume shapes that are vaguely human or just well, blobs as well as many other shapes. Additionally he can have the ink harden to form completely solid shapes such as spikes, blades, and tendrils.
While he can essentially create a lifeform from the ink he uses, their personality is only a representation of how Mavro sees said lifeform. Ultimately the 'inkspawn' is not fully sentient as they act how Mavro thinks how they should. And while their 'personality' can grow, it is still Mavro's vision of how they should act, considering that each 'personality' is expanded upon.
His semblance is actually connected with his emotions. Most of his emotions usually results in the same thing, figures that are cartoonish in nature, seeming rather playful. When he is angry, on the other hand, the figures look more real, and start to resemble things found in the horror genre.
At a glance, his semblance seems unimpressive. But match it with his boundless creativity and dust use and he becomes a force to be reckoned with.
