Well here's a repost of Farukon's profile. Some editing here and there.
Name: Reddo “Glaive Knight” Farukon
Date of Birth: April 21, MC0052
Height: 5’ 11”
Mage Rank: AA
Rank: Ground Forces Captain
Personality: A bit brash, Captain Reddo Farukon is a skilled strategist, with a strong penchant for playing chess, a game that had been ported over from Earth some time ago.
An honourable man, he is known as the Glaive Knight, earned from the fact he is always seen with a glaive while in combat, and also due to his strong preference to close-combat, especially when the TSAB had began to train in Belka-style magic.
As a leader, his preferred method of leading those below him comes down to finding out the skills of those he leads, often by putting them into situations where their skills would come into play. From there, he observes how each member of his team handles the situations, which allows him to figure out potential leaders, supporters, or front liners. Although some find his methods odd, it has yet to fail him, especially with his renowned accomplishments with the teams he has led throughout his career.
Off duty, he’s often seen going around town, hanging with his friends. He a rather laid back man, who prefers to just sit back and watch his own ‘underlings,’ as he enjoys calling them, train themselves as they try to point out each others errors and help each other improve themselves. While he will step in if he needs to, he has a strong belief that the best instructors are often one’s peers, while instructors, like himself, simply give them the goal and guidelines to achieve such goals.
Magic type: Neo-Belka
Magic colour: Red
Assignment: Hammer 01, squad commander of Riot Force 6, under the command of Lt. Colonel Yagami Hayate
Born on Mid-Childa, Farukon was born in a military family, much like how Admiral Chrono Harlaown was. His parents now deceased; he had spent a portion of his late childhood with relatives, who took care of him in place of his parents. Their deaths had been the catalyst that solidified the idea of joining the TSAB Combat Division, where he had ended up becoming the top of his class, and left the Academy as a B-rank at age 19.
His career then on had hit a minor snag, as during a 4-year period, he had spent his career in an unfortunate limbo, drifting from assignment to assignment, due to the rise of Aces Takamachi Nanoha, Harlaown T Fate, and Yagami Hayate. The only thing of note during this period was his promotion to Corporal a year after his graduation, followed by his promotion to Sergeant 2 years later. This had left him in an awkward position to possibly be noticed by his higher ups for approximately a year. However, during a routine patrol, along with a side-project he had been working on, earned him the recognition he needed to advance on.
During such patrol, his unit had stumbled across a robbery that had been in progress, and had moved to engage. The ensuing fight had resulted in the unit commander incapacitated, with help still too far away to arrive on sight before civilian casualties ran out of control. Taking command, Farukon was able to organize the patrol unit, and mount an effective counter-attack and apprehended the robbers, and prevented collateral damage.
It was also during this mission Farukon had deployed his device, Gerhard, a project he had been working on for some time. Despite the device being nothing more than a simple storage device, it had provided him a means to effectively combat the robbers and disable them.
Although the unit had incurred injuries, his actions had drawn enough attention to warrant his promotion to Sergeant, which also by then had also permitted his chance to rank up again.
Following that mission, he eventually achieved his A-rank status, and immediately applied for officer training. Although he did not come out top of his class like in his academy days, he completed his training and gained a commission at the rank of 2nd Lieutenant. From there, his career entered a state of constant rise, as he moved from mission to mission, accomplishing them within a reasonable time frame. It was during this time there would be a mission that he would eventually lose his customer device Gerhard.
His exemplary career eventually landed him a command upon his promotion to 1st Lieutenant, nearly 3 years after his promotion to 2nd Lieutenant. It was also at this point he was issued his Armed Device Gerhard. Further information can be found in the Device section. Assigned a company, he began to build career, in hopes that eventually, he would be able to reach the rank of Captain, and rank up again, and then possibly attempt to be accepted into Enforcer training.
Like most Barrier Jackets, the jacket Farukon wears relies more on flexibility and manoeuvrability, with descent defence. The general configuration is a simple black shirt underneath a short-sleeved, open jacket, cotton pants, with partial metal plats attached to the outside of his thighs, metal boots, black gloves attached to his shirt, and vambraces.
Device Name: Gerhard Mk. 1
Weapon Type: Glaive
Length: 5’ (Pole/Chamber) 2.5’ (Blade)
System: Storage Device
Gerhard Mk. 1 was a Storage Device that Farukon had designed and called it Project Gerhard, some time back in his academy days, but didn’t have the parts, or the clearance to obtain the parts he needed, to build it. During his 4-year slump, he had attempted construction, and had reached up to a point it could be activated and take on a very basic form, which would be able to augment his powers at a very basic level.
After its initial activation, Farukon had continued to upgrade the device for some time, until it was destroyed in a mission.
However, the Research Division had received a copy of the original plans for Gerhard, which included Farukon’s original intention of giving his device, which had originally been planned to be an armed device, but due to the premature activation, and the fact he did not have clearance back then to obtain the parts needed, he had settled to use Gerhard as a Storage Device.
Once the Research Division had obtained his plans, they had immediately constructed Gerhard following Farukon’s promotion to 1st Lt, and given it to him days after his promotion.
Device Name: Gerhard Mk. 2
Weapon Type: Glaive
Length: 5’ (Pole/Chamber) 2.5’ (Blade)
System: Belka Cartridge System
Action: Straight blowback, closed bolt
Feed System: 5 round detachable box magazine
Built using some of the remains of the original Gerhard, Gerhard himself had a somewhat more matured personality compared to other newly activated devices, due to the fact that the original device itself had been imbued with magic for some time before its untimely destruction, giving it a rather unique bond with Farukon.
It was also due to this bond that Gerhard, on more than one occasion, was able to work in such tandem with Farukon that Gerhard was always prepared for any and all of Farukon’s actions and orders, such as erecting barriers, charging for an attack, or discharging a much needed cartridge for a boost in power.
Rückstoß durchbohren (Blowback Pierce): A mono direction attack, the purpose of this attack is to simply unleash a straight-line beam, intended to take out corridors filled with enemy contacts, or to break a section of an enemy formation. The attack is executed by means of projecting a magic circle, acting as a the focal point of release, followed by the user either manually charging the attack, or do so by means of discharging cartridges, until power level reaches desired needs. User would then immediately thrusts the weapon straight forward, into the circle, releasing a devastating beam, knocking down even the sturdiest of warriors off their feet.
- The length and power of the attack is dependant of the amount of power inputted into the attack
- Can be used in one-on-one battle, but due to the cumbersome nature of the attack, it is not often recommended
Sturmwelle (Storm Wave):
User projects a magic circle in front of them and loads cartridge(s). The user then cuts along the circle. Depending on the angle of the cut, an energy wave is released in the same manner as the cut that was made.
Depending on the size of the circle, the arc length will change in accordance to the circle. However, the amount of cartridges loaded will also affect the power, distance covered, as well as the arc length.
Geistillusionen (Ghost Illusions): Operates exactly like the auto-barrier system, except that instead of creating a barrier, the spell creates a ghost image of the user, while teleporting him to a safe distance, relative to enemy positions.
