Liath is short, pale, and thin. He is often confused for a child by those he meets. He has a wash of gray freckles across his nose that looks like a smear of graphite from his drawings and stand out against his thick-rimmed glasses. His hair is bowl-cut and always a couple of strands that stick out.
He wears a grey baseball cap from Beacon Academy that he turns around backwards before getting into a fight. He wears a grey polo shirt under a darker grey letterman vest. His gray faded jeans have a black leather belt holding them up and the right knee is torn open. The cuffs of his pants are rolled up so he doesn’t walk on them. His outfit is completed by a pair of black sneakers and matching fingerless gloves. He has a bookbag over his left shoulder. His emblem is a patch on the lower left side of his letterman vest.
Liath sleeps in a pair of light gray pajama pants, decorated with various colors of gems, and a white v-neck t-shirt. He usually carries a brown teddy bear with him.
During the Beacon Dance, Liath wears the standard tuxedo for Beacon Academy. It includes a white button-down shirt with gray vest and black dress shoes that seem perpetually scuffed. His dark gray trousers are a little more faded than his over-sized jacket, the latter with a gray trim that matches his poorly-tied green bow tie.
Liath wears the same brown shoes, dark gray trousers, dark gray jacket with tan trim, blue vest, red tie, and white shirt as every other male student attending Beacon Academy. The ends of his trousers are rolled up and the jacket looks oversized on him. His shoes are scuffed and his tie poorly tied. He still wears his gray ballcap.
Liath is an introvert. Not just an introvert, but so introverted that he is uncomfortable being around other people. He prefers to hang back when in groups or to stay to the sides of the room. He never makes eye contact and his voice is barely above a whisper. If he is ever missing, the best place to look is for an isolated tree; he’ll be sitting on the opposite side from where everyone is at.
Whenever he has time, he is sketching in the book he always seems to have. Anyone peering over his shoulder as he looks through the pages to add a smear here or a line there will be amazed by what is in it. From bullets to Grimm to people he meets around the campus, the book is full of them. He pays more attention to it than to anything else around him.
Weapon and Ability
Liath is as physically imposing as a stick. When fights break out, he usually jumps back with his “battlecry,” which is actually a start of fright at the sudden movement and sound. He doesn’t know how to throw a punch, doesn’t know now to properly block, and doesn’t know the first thing about either marksmanship or melee combat.
Liath is armed with Sceitseala. It is nothing more than a sketchbook with a charcoal stylus attached to it. The edges look brand new, but the pages have charcoal marks on them as if things have been erased from the blank pages.
There are three distinct sections in the sketchbook, each with a tabbed card-page to separate them. The first section is full of pages and pages of projectiles in every shape and size; from single high caliber bullets to smaller automatic fire, to large grenades. The second section contains various depictions of Grimm in every shape and size. The third section contains beautifully depicted sketches of Huntsmen and Huntresses with their weapons in various poses and movements complete with the motion lines to show how they are moving.
Liath’s semblance is the ability to Draw Life. He places his hand on an image that he draws, from a simple stick-figure to one of the ornate sketches in his book, and thrusts his hand forward. Whatever it rested on appears in front of him. If he does this with a bullet (or stream of bullets or grenades), it fires them at whatever he is casting at. However, the full power of his Semblance is when he Draws Life on a figure.
Whatever figure he casts appears in its sketched state before him to fight. It has a life of its own, and a bit of an Aura in order to defend itself and power its attacks. While it cannot use the Aura powers of the figures it represents, it can be drawn to include speed leaping and even ammunition or a fired weapon.
The only limitation is that no two Drawn Lives can be active at the same time and casting them erases them from the pages.
Liath is physically unable to fight. He can run and hide, but all of his offensive abilities come from his Drawn Life figures.
