Ar 5’11,” Yuguren is a light-skinned man with messy brown hair that reaches the bottom of his neck. He has dark blue eyes that are almost obscured by his hair. He wears a dark blue trench coat, though it almost looks black with how dark it is. He wears black pants and boots with a blue shirt underneath his coat.
The bottom half of his right leg is robotic. In his home in Atlas, he has several different models to suit his needs, including higher durability or containing compartments for gun magazines or knives. His main prosthetic contains combat and throwing knives, as well as a vertical blade that can extend from the heel.
Born in Atlas to a Mistralian father and Atlesian mother, Yuguren resembled his father more than his mother, only getting her eyes. He was raised to look up to the military, protectors of the kingdom. While he was tempted to join the military growing up, he decided that he would follow in his father’s footsteps and become a huntsman and applied to Helios.
After graduating from Helios, he began attending Atlas Academy, continuing along his path as a huntsman. He was made the leader of Team Ogre, made up of members who all used firearms as their main weapon. Like other teams, they were a mixed bunch of personalities. Though all four had warrior heritages.
But as he went about his studies at the senior academy, he felt more pressure to join the military after graduation. At first, he stayed the course, planning on following his father's path. But during his third year, he realized that the military was the ultimate defensive force, their resources and numbers allowing them to better protect the people than a huntsman ever could. While he would never disrespect huntsmen and huntresses or the work they do, he came to believe that joining the military would be a more beneficial use of his skills. Upon graduation, he joined the Atlesian military. At this point, the team broke up, half joining the military and the other half following the huntsmen's path.
After graduating, he immediately enlisted. After a couple of years, he distinguished himself as a skilled squad leader. He had considered becoming a specialist, but decided not to, being fine with where he was. Despite his personal issues with some of Atlas’ policies, he was a loyal soldier. It was during this time that he lost his leg.
About three years ago, he was part of an operation with another squad to raid a White Fang cell holed up in an old grocery store.. It should have been a routine operation. But the cell was more well-armed and prepared than they had known, Yuguren’s squad being met met with a prepared defense. The fighting moved outside the building and into the street. At the end, only four of twenty White Fang supporters were captured, and two members of Yuguren’s squad were killed. Despite their aggressive approach, many seemed to blame the White Fang members for the casualties.
But he couldn’t let it go. So many dead on such a simple raid. He couldn’t resolve how they had gotten to the point where diplomacy was failing and such constant violence was necessary to maintain the status quo. This led Yuguren to leave the military two years ago, becoming a huntsman and wandering the kingdoms. During this time, he learned more about the conflict between the White Fang and the kingdoms, as well as the general tension between humans and faunus.
He has recently traveled to Vale, wishing to assist with efforts to reclaim the city and possibly find leads on Adam Taurus and his allies.
