Name: Ethan Merlot
Color Reference: Merlot is a dark blue-colored wine grape variety, that is used as both a blending grape and for varietal wines.
Appearance: Ethan has light skin, brown eyes and messy fuchsia hair. He wears a white lab coat over a red shirt with a skull logo with two lines crossing it, gray pants and black shoes with red skull decals on them.
Personality: Ethan has an intellect like none other, and uses it to create amazing machines and solve even the toughest of problems. But he tends to be a little eccentric and may come off as paranoid to those around him, especially when it involves Atlas technology. Speaking of Atlas, he has grown to resent the kingdom's army for relying on its technology, knowing that it is flawed, but his true grudge is with Ironwood, who not only humilated the young scientist in front of thousands of people, but also dismissed him as a "immorral maniac whose ego is as frail as his psyche".
Weapon: Asura System
Skills and Abilities: Ethan is proficient in technology and has fair knowledge in hacking. He also enjoys developing various machines to help in combat.
Semblance: Malfunction - Ethan is able to cause any type of machine to stop functioning properly using his mind. The only drawback he needs to be within 10 feet of the machine he intends to disrupt.
Backstory: Ethan is a young genius with intelligence like none has seen before. He has been on the cover of every science magazine ever known and gave the most excellent of presentations. But all of that changed one day when he was giving a speech in a science institution in Vale. He explains that no matter how perfect technology appears to be, there will always vulnerabilities that can be exploited by hackers working for unscrupulous groups. While he gained applause from his many viewers, only one man ridiculed him: Ironwood. He dismissed Ethan's theory as "mindless conjecture" and boasts about how Atlas' technology is so top notch, an army of hackers would not be able to break through the firewall. This leads to an arguement between the two and ended with Ethan insulting him and his army before storming off. Since then, the general saw to it that Ethan was dismissed as a maniac with no morals or mental stability and that no institution would take him seriously. Ethan went into obscurity that day, but with each passing moment, he plans to prove Ironwood wrong by whatever means neccessary.
Well, here's my next OC. Hope you like it.
That sucks for him
The warnings of a genius are always dismissed by arrogant government types who think they know more than them.
