Boen Mikhael HighwindAge:
(Halberd) & One-Two
(Battle Axe) Weapon Description:
Boen utilizes a halberd that is seven-feet in length. The axe-head is roughly two-feet wide with a razor edge and a one-foot horn. At the end of its arm is a morning star pummel for delivering blunt attacks. Its arm is adjustable with the twist of its grip, shrinking the weapon down to single-handed use and to be joined by a normal-sized battle axe strapped to his other hip. The weapon was first crafted by Boen himself from the junk he found about Esthar City, and later when he joined the garden, he upgraded the pole-arm to include electrical nodes for giving his opponents a shocking
experience. Specialization: Breaker/Dragoon
: As a breaker, Boen will use his raw strength to break the enemy’s guard. No matter how sturdy the enemy tank may be, with precise critical strikes Boen can shatter its defenses—magical or physical—overtime. By breaking the enemy’s defense, he opens the threat up to not only the devastating assault from his halberd, or in the case of close-quarters combat, his axes, but also his team.Current Ranking:
“Breakin’em down!”Limit Break:
Airborne Limit Break Description:
Stabbing his halberd into the ground, Boen will vault skyward into the air for three turns. While airborne, he is able to avoid all damage from grounded enemies, airborne creatures are another story. After three turns, Boen will descend like a meteor on the enemy or enemies, landing upon the intended target with an explosion that bears a damaging aftershock to harm those enemies within its destructive radius. The primary target suffers more damage than the other targets caught within the AOE, and all targets are affected regardless of their defense.Personality:
Boen is a friendly candidate, and is often seen as a big, ol’ teddy bear by female students. It is possible that the hardship he faced growing up in Esthar City has made him humble, modest, and thankful for even the smallest things in life. He is a hard worker, driven by his determination to become stronger so that he could one day return to his hometown and exterminate the beasts plaguing his city. This determination has allowed him to excel as a Cadet and reach Candidate status first-time go. The dragoon can be seen training frequently: running, swimming, lifting weights, scaling platforms, and battling beasts in the Training Grounds. He has to stay in top physical shape not only just to use his halberd, but to increase the effectiveness of his limit break. He also is quite competitive, but all in good sport. If he is to be the best, then he will strive to be and friendship won’t get in his way.
Magic isn’t his strong suit. He doesn’t have the patience to master spells, especially when he’s already proficient in his physical abilities. Girls are another subject that isn’t his strong suit possibly due to his ambitions outweighing any desire for a love interest. This doesn’t mean that he’s not interested in women, what it means is, he’s quite naïve and will more than likely be oblivious to any tactics a female may use to hint to him that she’s interested. This often leads to girls (as well as bros) thinking that he’s dumb when really growing up in Esthar City didn’t grant him any experience in that category.
Being a big guy, Boen loves food. He is nearly as partial to it as Fat Cadet and will rarely refuse a good meal. Food can be rather emotional for him, especially if the meal is so delicious that it reminds him of his mother’s cooking.
He doesn’t tolerate bullying or any wrong-doing in his presence. If he sees it, he will attempt to break it up for his belief is what kind of man would he be to allow it? In his eyes, only cowards turn the other cheek. He isn’t an easy one to insult for his self-confidence is impeccable. He isn’t afraid of anyone!Backstory:
Boen was born to Heather Marie Highwind and Owen Fernand Highwind, descendants of the infamous Highwind bloodline. In Esthar City, Owen and Heather worked together in a shop, repairing vehicles and other mechanical equipment that the residents of the tiny town of Tinker
or Tinker Town
needed. It was only natural that Boen would join the family business and help out any way that he could. Every now and then, monsters would breach the town defenses and a minute men militia was mobilized to take them out. Both his mother and father, the Highwinds, would don their polearms and join in the battle to protect their home. The blood of a long history of dragoons was hot in their veins, and as soon as Boen was old enough to hold a pole-arm properly, he too joined the fight. Boen was six when he lost a finger to a Bite Bug
. The creature snapped it clean off and thankfully hadn’t eaten it for his parents were able to recover it. Facing such a traumatizing injury at such a young age hardened the boy, and at 7-years-old, he built his own polearm and fought alongside his parents.
Over the years, the monster population began to grow and new, more nefarious species began to appear. It was then that Heather and Owen decided to bring up the idea of enrolling Boen at the garden across the water. Boen, at first, immediately refused fearing that his parents were growing old and wouldn’t be able to fend the creatures off without him. It was only when his father Owen explained to him that if he didn’t grow stronger than his stay would only delay the inevitable and be a waste of opportunity that he decided to leave his home.Appearance:
Boen is 6’4” and 225 lbs of muscle. Because of his size, the first impression that he often gives to others is intimidating when really he wouldn’t hurt a fly—one that isn’t evil at least. His hair is black and short, eyes blue, and he likes to keep his sideburns curved like thin sickles. When not wearing his candidate uniform, he can be found wearing tanks, hoodies, jeans, basketball shorts, flip-flops, or work-boots. He’s rather laid-back. Down his left arm is a tribal tattoo of a serpentine dragon whose jaws part about his wrist. It is said when Boen summons the Black Dragon that his tattoo will glow yellow. Light scars can be seen on his body depicting a difficult past, and there’s a scar across his right ring finger where his digit could have come off once. When in battle, he’ll wear sturdy leather gloves to grip his polearm with.GF APPLICATIONName:
Black DragonEstablished Connection:
Boen's recovery after being bitten by a Bite Bug wasn't an easy one. He was stricken with fever, and while he laid sweating and burning up in his bed, he began to have delusional dreams. The one dream he had was lucid. At six-years-old, he stood in the middle of Esthar City. Above him, black clouds churned and from its swirling center descended a great dragon as black as a shadow. When the creature landed before him, the ground shook as it approached him on the body of a black-scaled lion with large, eagle-like wings. Raising its large head, its spiked mane flared and trembled as a serpent-like hiss escaped its teeth. Boen awoke right after, his fever no longer severe and oblivious of the tattoo the beast had left on his arm. He realized the next day when he was suddenly feeling a lot stronger.Element:

The sky will populate with nimbus clouds and descending from them with electricity dancing about its wings will be the black dragon.
