Combat: Argent will wear a fairly standard gear for a soldier including the combat armor chest/shoulders, a pair of finger less armored gloves, and black combat boots. On his back he will carry a standard backpack with extra rounds and survival gear.
Hair: Short silver hair.
Eyes: Light Grey
Body: Argent is incredibly pale skinned, and weighs about 170 lbs. He is fairly slender with only slightly toned muscles.
Argent has an interesting personality while he is naturally fun to be around and rather charming he has recently adopted a fairly stand offish mentality. Of course, this is in large part due to the chip on his shoulder, so he is particularly quiet around most other students.
Once a person manages to get past his first lair of defense they will find that he is quite easy going and fun company. Argent looks forward each day to potentially making friends, however, his defenses seem to just subconsciously go up before he has a chance to act.
Argent is the younger brother of Ivory, and had a very similar childhood as her. A middle-class child from a middle-class family, and despite being a younger sibling he actually tends to be quite a bit more mature.
The boy was rather different from the rest of his family even his older sister, while still incredibly intelligent, did not posses the skills or affinity for tinkering. He refined his craftsmanship by constantly building things and take them back apart. Unlike most students who use a hand me down weapons or forge their first weapon during combat school Argent already had a fully functional self build weapon going into Signal.
During his time at Signal Argent was forced to watch Ivory and the other students who were destined to be huntsmen and huntress flourish. While he and were quite a few other nameless students simply drifted to the back of the class and into obscurity. A large part of this is due to the fact that h is the only member of his family that does not possess a potent physical semblance. Still, despite these disadvantages he didn't simply give up and start planning another future. Instead he poured as much time and energy into the one aspect he was good at. Thanks to many hours at both the gun range refining his accuracy, and the workshop improving his weapon he turned into quite the sniper.
However, despite all this energy spent when it came time to apply to Atlas Academy he was denied. The school thought he would make a better soldier or an engineer than a Huntsmen. Unwilling to accept this outcome he resubmitted his application to Beacon. While they would have typically denied him as well they opted to grant him an opportunity to take the placement test that they typically gave students who didn't attend a combat school thanks to his last name. This coupled with his incredible work ethic earned him a chance although eyes will be watching his progress very closely.
Deadeye is a high-powered Sniper Rifle that can fire both standard slugs and superior quality dust rounds. Each standard magazine he carries has 8 rounds, and the dust magazines have 4. Argent takes great care of his weapon as he knows it was the only reason he got into Beacon in the first place.
Argent also carries a small foot long auto-shotgun that he wears on a large holster on his left thigh. The shotgun holds 6 shells and can be fired with one hand as it does not need to be pumped.
Argent was gifted with superior sight, hearing, even smell, and taste. While this ability helps him greatly with his ability as a sharpshooter, and even detect things in a room. It is still weak compared to most. His sight and hearing especially are only marginally superior when compared to a keen Faunus. Which of course makes his semblance even less impressive.
Unlike the rest of this family Argent's semblance is not potent nor does it make his eyes glow. Instead there is a very tiny shimmer of his light green aura as he attempts to bolster his sight, hearing, and any other senses.
