The current Fall Maiden – Amber.
Ozpin, introducing Amber

Amber was a character in RWBY and the previous Fall Maiden. She first appeared, in a comatose state, in the episode "Fall". She later appeared in a flashback sequence in "Beginning of the End".

In "Heroes and Monsters", she was killed when Cinder Fall shot her with an arrow to the chest.


Amber had a light brown complexion, with shoulder-length, straight brown hair. She had a beauty mark below her left eye. She used to wear a long, green hooded cloak on top of an off-white blouse with frill detailing on the shoulders, pleated lower half with a central split, alongside a brown vest that had three straps and golden lining around the collar. She had a dark brown corset with matching pants, as well as a pair of brown thigh-high boots with large cuffs and golden armour plating covering the boots up to her knees.

She also had an amber pendant on her vest, a gold bracer on her left arm, and two gold bracelets on her right wrist. Finally, she had a golden spaulder on her right shoulder as well as a brown shoulder strap with some pouches slung diagonally across her body.

After she was attacked, she was left with extensive facial scarring. When housed inside her life support pod, she was seen wearing a white tube top and a white skirt.


Not much is known about Amber's personality, but when she came across an illusion of a young girl crying she went to check on her and offered her an apple, showing her to be very kind.

Also, Qrow described her as "inexperienced," implying that she was somewhat naïve and easily fooled due to her kindness.

This assessment is given further credence by that fact that she was easily fooled by Emerald's illusion of an innocent little girl wounded in the roadside, despite the obvious suspicious circumstances concerning why a child would be alone in the middle of nowhere.

However despite her naivety due to her inexperience and compassion, it is shown that Amber at least had enough combat experience and instinct to be able to detect Emerald despite her illusion still rendering her invisible.

However, Amber could also cold and ruthless when pushed to the edge, such as where she was fully prepared to kill Emerald after successfully disarming her and putting her at her mercy.

Powers and Abilities

During her fight against Cinder Fall and her team, Amber showcased a considerable amount of skill when in combat, able to overpower the trio and fend them off for a prolonged period of time, even nearly defeating all three of them at the same time.

Amber also showed some level of skill in manipulating her Aura, as she was able to deflect Emerald's bullets by using her hands to project Aura shields similar to Cinder and Lie Ren.


Main article: Amber's Staff

Amber's weapon of choice was her Staff, with fire and wind Dust crystals on both ends, which she used to either create strong gusts of wind or blasts of fire.

Amber showcased enough skill in using her staff as a weapon to successfully fend off the ambush of Mercury Black and Emerald Sustrai and able to briefly repel the both of them before being overpowered. Later Amber showcased that she could also use her weapon as a spear to stab her opponents by using the sharp ends of the Dust crystals, seen where she attempted to finish off Emerald.

Maiden Powers

Main article: Maidens

As the previous Fall Maiden, Amber was able to wield vast amounts of power and strength. She was also the only one with the power to unlock the chamber of the Relic of Choice.

Amber creating a large blast of fire with her Maiden powers.

In her battle against Emerald, Mercury, and Cinder, she displayed several astounding powers. Some of them including the ability to levitate in the air, create enormously powerful gusts of wind, freeze leaves and make them solid to create deadly projectiles, manipulate the weather and bring lightning down upon her enemies, as well as shoot deadly fireballs. Her Aura also became strong enough to repel attacks with no effort or gesture on her part. When using her Maiden powers, her eyes gained a fiery glow.

According to Qrow Branwen in "A Much Needed Talk" however, Amber was still inexperienced in using her powers.


  • Like many people in the world of Remnant, her name follows the Color Naming Rule. Amber is fossilized tree resin, and it typically takes on a brownish yellow-orange. This color aligns with the colors normally associated with Fall (due to the changing colors of tree leaves.)
  • In "It's Brawl in the Family", Qrow had mentioned "Autumn's condition". Autumn is the common name for Fall, as Fall is said in replacement for Autumn, albeit only in North America.
  • Amber's concept art gives her height as 5'8", though it is not known if this was followed in the show itself.[1]
