Tanis "Viper" Blaine is a Huntress and the mother Team CBLT's Seth Blaine. Like her son, Tanis is a Faunus, but in her case, a Viper Fanus, complete with snake-like eyes and tongue. Her weapon of choice is a High-Powered Sniper-Guandao (HPSG) called Serpentes.

Physical description

Like her son, Tanis is very tall, for a woman, with pale skin and long dark green hair, which is normally tied in a braid over her right shoulder and yellow-gold snake eyes. As a viper fanus, her traits include the snake eyes, tongue, and teeth.


Tanis is a calm, yet stern woman who shows very little emotion. She does show emotion just not a lot, and it is usually only when Seth is near. She cares very much for her son and does worry when he gets bullied for being a Fanus. She does not tolerate the bullying of Fanus, and will step in to help one. When she is on a mission, her attention is focused on the mission and the mission only.
