Name: Petro Zhukov
Country of Origin: Ukraine
Fighting Style: Petro specializes in fencing techniques yet remains a combat pragmatist, preferring to tire out his opponent and patiently wait for an opening. He is a calm minded fighter who prefers the heat of battle that can only be found when face to face with your foe. Although he generally frowns upon ranged weapons he acknowledges their use but personally refuses to wield them.
Physical Appearance: A fierce and imposing teenager, Petro appearance matches that of the legendary Cossacks, a legacy Petro proudly holds dear to his heart. Coming from a family whose bloodline descends from these warriors it’s no surprise that Petro is considered to be an athlete. He is of average height with a well muscled build, starting from his right eye down to his chin lies a sabre scar which he accidently earned during a sparring match.
He has hazel eyes and simple short brown hair, he often jokes he’d have preferred to have been born with lighter colored eyes to make him look even more imposing. Although he generally wears ‘normal’ clothes he is almost always seen wearing a large traditional Cossack overcoat and a Shashka
. The Shashka is a family heirloom that is passed on from generation, much like Petro’s weapon form it appears to be a simple scabbard but on closer inspection several names of previous generations can be seen inscribed, including several names of those outside the family. The guardless hilt is decorated with smooth leather that is easily gripped while the blade itself has retained its edge
Weapon Shape(s): Petro’s weapon form takes the shape of a curved szabla
, the hilt is a dull hue of gold while the grip itself appears to be worn leather however the scabbard and the blade itself are in perfect condition. The metal scabbard physically appears to be black in color as to avoid drawing attention and is little in ways of decoration but the blade always appears to be well polished and shines when there is enough light allowing it to reflect off it.
Although he doesn’t exactly change weapon shape but once he is placed into the scabbard Petro can alter the curve, changing it into a straight sword to allow for a sudden change in tactics.
