I teased Team BLHV a short while ago so here's the first sister. Let me know any thoughts.
Name: Victoria Pearl
Inspiration/Allusion: IJN Kongō
Ht: 6’1” Wt: Classified
Hair: Black with a violet sheen. Hangs past shoulders. Styled with two loose buns, one on either side of her head and the rest of her hair hanging free. Also wears a golden headband with her emblem attached to it.
Eyes: Royal Violet
Emblem: Violet 16-Point Chrysanthemum
Semblance: Water Walking
Sharing the same semblance with her sisters, Victoria can walk on water. Her semblance requires very little concentration and almost no energy to use but if her aura is depleted, her semblance fails and she sinks (or swims). A secondary ability to this semblance is her ability to choose exactly how buoyant she is; choosing whether she wants to stand on the water’s surface or sink up to her waist or even further without having to tread water.
Kaigun Jū 30/45 “Kurasurīdā Kongou” Translation: Naval Gun 30/45 "Class Leader Kongou"
Dual-mounted 30mm/45 caliber naval cannons that pack a serious punch.
In the primary fighting mode, the Kaigun Jū weapon splits into two single arm mounted cannons that can be used for a bashing weapon and makeshift shield in melee combat or as a powerful cannon in ranged combat.
For BLHV’s team attack “Broadside”, the Kaigun Jū recombines into its dual mount form so all four girls can unleash a devastating 8 projectile salvo.
Ammunition: The shells have a red tracer.
1. General purpose high explosive rounds powered by fire dust.
2. High impact “Thumper” round that uses gravity dust to impart a massive amount of kinetic damage upon the target. This ammunition type is only used by Victoria.
A unique piece of ankle-mounted equipment built by sister Hyuuga. It works with the girls’ semblance by providing a rudder and propeller system so the girls can sail across the water’s surface at a speed of up to 30 knots (56 km/h; 35 mph). This piece of equipment uses Remnant Collapse-o-Tech and folds up so as not to get in the way while walking on land.
Victoria wears a Victorian style dress with a short, combat cut skirt. Further detailed with a modestly cut bust line and long sleeves. She also wears black, thigh-high boots with a small heel. The primary dress color is a dark violet and the secondary color is a dark cream color.
After the dissolution of her team, Ariel Pearl retired to Mistral where she gave birth to four identical quadruplet girls: Bellona, Lavender Rose, Hyuuga, and Victoria. These girls kept the hands full of their mother and “Grandpa Warden” during their early years.
Later on, the girls wished to become huntresses like their mother and attended Sanctum Academy before graduating on to Haven where Victoria was chosen as the leader of Team BLHV; Burning Love.
It was not until their second year at Haven that anything exceptionally exciting happened to the girls. They decided to take part in the Vytal Festival Tournament and faced off against Team ONIX of Beacon in the 4v4 round. Victoria faced off against Nikolas in the swan song of the fight and ended up breaking his nose with one of her “Thumper” shells. In the aftermath, Ariel and Thera had a reunion in Beacon’s infirmary where it was discovered that Nikolas was cousins with the Pearl quadruplets.
Continuing in the Festival Tournament, Victoria and Lavender Rose went on to the doubles round but were unable to pull off the win. Team BLHV also fought in the Battle of Beacon before returning to Haven but they plan on transferring to Beacon for their third year of huntress training with their “cousin team” Team ONIXX.
Personality and Abilities:
Victoria was born first and even though it was only by minutes, she makes it known that she is the better sister though it is just teasing 99% of the time. Though she teases, she knows that as the eldest sister it is her responsibility to take care of her siblings. Mess with them and Victoria is first in line to beat the snot out of you, wearing a dress or not.
She is overall the wisest and generally better skilled in a fight while all of her other traits are average compared to her sisters.
Victoria is very eccentric and likes to dress up fancily. She makes most of her own clothing and even some items for her sisters as well as loving to cook. Her specialty is an apocalyptically spicy Japanese-style curry with black tea to drink.
While interacting with her cousin, Nikolas, she refers to him with the pet name: “Bucky”. This is because Nikolas hates being called “Nicky”. Funnily enough, Nik only allows Victoria to call him “Bucky”.
Victoria is also afraid of sea lions, she thinks they will eat her.
History Lesson: IJN Kongō
Kongou was the last warship built outside Japan and nameship of her class of four ships of British design. She was laid down in 1911 at Barrow-in-Furness in Britain by the Vickers Shipbuilding Company. Armed with eight 14” (356mm) main battery guns and sixteen 6” (150mm) secondary battery guns located amidships. She was commissioned in 1913 as a battlecruiser and patrolled of the coast of China during WWI.
Due to the restrictions of the Washington Naval Treaty, Japan was unable to build new battleships and was forced to upgrade their WWI ships. From 1929-1931 Kongou was upgraded and reclassified as a battleship. Her armor weight increased from 6,500-10,300 long tons which violated the Washington Treaty.
In January 1935, Kongou was toured by the Nazi German naval attache, Captain Paul Wenneker. A former gunnery officer, Wenneker was unimpressed with Japanese gunnery technology.
In June 1935, Kongou was drydocked at Yokosuka Naval Arsenal for further upgrades. She was lengthened to improve her fineness ratio, she was given new oil-fired Krampon boilers, and her armor was further improved. In addition, she was given a fighter catapult to allow her to support three floatplanes and her superstructure was completely rebuilt into the iconic pagoda mast style that Japanese battleships became known for. Kongou was now reclassified as a fast battleship, the big guns and heavy armor of a battleship with the speed (30 kts) to support carrier task forces.
Throughout WWII, Kongou participated in many battles. She supported invasions in the South Pacific including: Thailand, Malaya, The Dutch East Indies, and even the Battle of Midway. She participated in the most successful Japanese battleship action of the war with her sister ship, Haruna, when they bombarded the Americans at Henderson Field. They fired 973 14” shells at about 15km heavily damaging both runways, destroying almost all of their aviation fuel, destroying 48 of 90 warplanes and killing 41 marines.
On 21 November 1944, Kongou, Yamato, Nagato and the rest of the First Fleet were headed for Kure for reorganization and repair. The submarine USS Sealion fired six torpedoes at Kongou and three at Nagato. Only two torpedoes hit, both on Kongou.
Fifteen minutes after detaching from the main force, she was flooding uncontrollably and as the evacuation was underway, her forward 14” magazine exploded. She sunk with 1,200 of her crew including her captain. The escorting destroyers Hamakaze and Isokaze only rescued 237 survivors.
She was one of only three British built battleships to be sunk by submarine during WWII.
