Name: Dan Ripp
Nationality: USA! USA!
Appearance: Dan is tall for his age, around 5’10. He has a large build, built from the years of hard manual labor on the farm. He has brown hair and brown eyes. He's not too bad looking, not too good either, but he has that country boy charm. Dan wears a worn jacket with a blue shirt and despite the fact that most people didn't have them, Dan does in fact own a pair of blue jeans that he wears under his standard uniform.
Personality: Dan you could say is well, they typical hick. Those horrible stereotypes about how they can't tell the difference between a paperweight and a phone, that's pretty much him. It's not his fault he grew up litterally in the middle of nowhere. But he's ever the curious one, wanting to know pretty much anything there is to know about these new fangled contraptions. Still, don't insult him being a hick, give him some credit. If he likes you, you'll be like family to him, and family sticks together no matter what. He's also quite chivalrous. Mama raised this boy right, he was taught never to harm a girl. Even though he had to kill his mom at point blank range, he still to this day refuse to harm any women (unless he's pushed to the brink again, but he might refuse even then).
Quirks/Talents: His main quirk is that, since he didn't grow up anywhere near a city, he's mostly new to technology. He hasn't got a clue how to work anything more advanced than a gun. All those nifty inventions like the typewriter and the telephone. No sir, he's never even seen a traffic light he was so far out in the middle of nowhere.
Innocence Type: Equipment.
Innocence Details: Name: Farmer's pride.
Abilities : 1) Normal abilites : Self explanitory, he can fire the gun using energy instead of bullets. The weapon is a typical shotgun though, he needs to be at point blank range, or it's accuracy is horrible. 2) Double Barrel : He can fire two shots at once. He mostly uses this shot when he can't get close enough to fire point blank. He feels that "If I fire two bullets, I'll have a better chance at hitting them.". Dan hasn't realized it yet, but double barrel actually had amazing accuracy at long range. To the point where it puts Sniper rifles to shame. Pretty much as long as he can see them, his Double Barrel shot actually is a homing shot for akuma. Again, he hasn't quite realized it yet. 3) At 50% Syncronization, his shotgun morphs into a standard single barell rifle. His power is slightly less, but the accuracy is greatly improved at greater distances. It also requires more energy to fire the shot, so he rarely has to go that high.
Appearance : Basic Design. When activated, it just becomes able to shoot. If other people tried to shoot his gun, they would never be able to pull the trigger. Dan has no holder for his shotgun, but he never puts it down except for sleeping and going to the bathroom.
Background: Dan grew up in rural North Dakota. Litterally in the middle of nowhere as far as most people are concerned. And he's ok with that. Being homeschooled and never having to go to town (water from their well, no electricity, all the food right there) he grew up mostly wondering what the outside world was like.
Well his wish would soon be granted, of course not the way he pictured it. Dan's mom died suddenly, his dad was emotionally distraught, and that's when the Earl showed up. Promicing to brind her back, and only needing him to call out her name. Dan tried to tell his dad not to, something just didn't seem right. But his dad wasn't listening to his son, and of course called out to her.
Same old same old after that, his mom came back as an Akuma, and killed his father. Paniced, Dan ran back into the house, desperate for anything. He pulled his grandfather's old shotgun off the mantle, but it felt different. Before he could check to see if it was loaded, his mother came into the house. It took all of his courage, but he managed to pull the trigger, but he did. Instead of the shell though, a beam of green energy shot out, hitting the akuma at point blank range, killing it instantly. Dan checked the barrel, found no shells.
Now utterly confused and alone, Dan decided he couldn't stay there, not with that strange man lurking somewhere near by. He began walking toward where his parents said the town was, after packing up what he had left of course. When he made it to town, he looked for any kind soul to help him. No one would believe his rediculous story about a strange man and a family member comming back from the dead though. Dan didn't give up though, he desperately searched for someone to believe him, finally someone did. An exorcist, following a rumor that the Earl was nearby, just happened to overhear him. After some interorgation and a long explination by Dan, the exorcist showed him the way to the order, and that's where he is today.

You might want to increase accuracy for some special attacks. Also, what sort of ammo is used? Energy? Bullets? Your quirk also seems very contradictory where Dan doesn't understand technology yet grew up on a rural farm when electricty wasn't yet very widespread in the americas, and can seemingly fix anything despite this ignorance. Background seems good, just add your appearance.
