Fox is a teenage boy with dark skin and dark, messy copper hair that has a long fringe and a cowlick.
He wears a sleeveless, muted orange zipper vest with black lining and a high collar, a pair of black jeans, and brown, laced shoes. His eyes are pure white, showing that he is physically blind. His arms are covered in scars, and he has a vertical scar on his lips.
He also wears a pair of long black gloves and has several pouches attached to his belt.
Fox is sarcastic and laid back in personality. Though he is reserved in new social situations, he is lively in familiar ones to the point where he considers himself the comedic relief of Team CFVY. He is comfortable enough on the subject of his own blindness to make jokes about it himself. Fox thinks of himself as a prankster; he has a tendency to make practical jokes and poke fun of his friends. He holds himself in high esteem and directs himself with confidence, having no qualms being blunt about people if need be.
However, he resents being treated as though he were frail due to his blindness. Additionally, having grown in Vacuo, Fox begrudgingly adapted to a survival of the fittest mindset. When his parents died, he vowed to protect people who could not protect themselves.
Powers and Abilities
Fox possesses highly proficient skills with Sharp Retribution, a pair of blades attached to his arms.
Fox demonstrates considerable strength, speed, agility and reflexes in combat through his fighting style, which resembles Muay Thai (Thai Boxing). He is capable of swiftly moving around the battlefield, delivering rapid punches and performing impressive flips.
Fox appears to be able to create a form of a shockwave that is capable of exploding an entire Grimm body, similar to what Lie Ren does in "The Emerald Forest" by exploding the head of a King Taijitu. He displays strong control over Aura, being able to sense the quantity of Aura a person has and manipulate his Aura to orient and balance himself.
Fox's Semblance is telepathy. He can send messages to people's minds to convey his thoughts. Fox's Semblance is more precise if people are close by, and he can sense when they are nearby. When using it, the people he is conveying a message to feel as though they are being watched by something.
Accessibility Dialogue Assistant
An Accessibility Dialogue Assistant, or simply, "Ada", is a device intended to aid people with disabilities, specifically, blindness. The device takes the form an almost invisible earpiece. It is designed to send sonar pulses to scan the nearby environment and give users 'artificial sight.' An Ada device is activated through voice control, which takes the form of a female voice. Additionally, the system is set to adapt to the user of the device, and it contains a compass feature.
"Ada" also features a battle mode called the Cyrano Protocol, which scans the area for nearby weapons and assesses both the weapons and the user's fighting style. Fox uses an Ada device in RWBY: After the Fall.
