| PERSONALITY |
Personality: To those who know him, Volt is an upstanding young man who will fight for what’s right no matter the cost. However, those who don’t know him view him as a punk who just escaped from juvenile hall. In reality Volt is a gentle soul who hates unwarranted violence. He has a strong sense of justice and a determination almost unparalleled.
However, Volt is far from perfect. He has trouble controlling his dark powers and anger. This puts him into difficult situations at times, and he may even need his friends to bail him out.
In combat Volt is cool and collected, but he can tap into his dark powers in order to increase his strength. He has able to fight even without his meister. Volt value camaraderie and will put his life on the line to make sure everyone gets out alive, villains included. This attitude can put him at odds with other students.
Backstory: Volt was born an orphan and raised in an orphanage in a village that has since become a ghost town. At the orphanage Volt was immediately a target for bullies due to his short stature and spastic temper, He was alone most of the time and had few true friends. When he turned six Volt had had enough. His dark heritage unleashed, Volt mercilessly beat up his tormenters and broke one of their arms.
Two years later things had changed, when a rich family moved into the town. Volt had made a friend in the rich family’s son, a Litwik named Dante. Volt and Dante were inseparable and life was good.
4 years later, Dante’s family had moved away, along with most of the other residents in the town. The only two buildings left occupied were the general store and the orphanage. Month after month children either grew up and left or were adopted, leaving Volt alone. Eventually the orphanage had to close, due to the lack of children to adopt. Volt was thrown onto the streets without a second thought, at age 12 had to survive on his own.
The Orphanage gave Volt whatever supplies they could, which ended up lasting a week. Volt wandered by himself for days, hoping that someone would take him in. After a depressing search for no one, Volt curled up in a ball on the side of the road, and waited for the end. Awoken at someone poking him, he discovered a band of merchants had been worried about the small kid. These kind souls took Volt in, finally giving him a home.
Living with the merchants, Volt learned the tricks of the trade, as well as how to Box. Volt stayed and travelled with the merchants until he was 14, when the group left and never came back. It is still unknown why they left him. Volt, angry and depressed, began living on the street again.
When times got tough and Volt’s depression deepened, Volt turned to self-harm and violence. He was arrested 3 times for aggravated unarmed assault, landing him in Juvenile Prison. Upon release Volt continued his lonely path until he received a call from the adoption agency, someone had finally adopted him.
Volt left his old attitude behind him (or at least tried to) and travelled to a small village called Aloe town, where he was sent to meet his new brother. Upon entering the city, he came across a Monferno girl named Alice, who showed him a kindness he had not seen in years. Alice just so happened to know Volt’s adopted brother, so she lead him to his new family.
After coming to know his new brethren and accepting Aloe as his home he now protects those he cares about fiercely, not giving in until whatever threat they face is gone. During one of these battles, Volt discovered his ability to turn into a weapon. Upon discovery, Volt was terrified, afraid of his latent ability. But after hearing of an academy where weapons like him are trained, he left his family behind headed for the DWMA.
