Overview Quotes

RWBY: After the Fall

Chapter One

I'm sorry you were in my way. Now run along, piggy
—Bertilak's first words, displaying a racist attitude towards the Faunus
Well, well. What do we have here? Not every day you see new Huntsmen in these parts.
—Bertilak is introduced to Team CFVY
You're tougher than you look. I'm surprised you're alive.
—Bertilak to Slate
Theodore had it in for me
—Bertilak once Carmine Esclados claims he barely graduated

Chapter Four

The important thing is not going off on your own without telling us. Especially not into the damn desert in the middle of the damn night.
—Bertilak to Edward Caspian
Edward wants to cross the desert, so that's where we're taking him. And I'm tired of you young punks acting like you know better than us. We've been Huntsmen for a long time, ever since you kids were in diapers.
—Bertilak on his experiences, to Team CFVY
I'm just saying, we have a lot of experience. And I'd be happy to show this brat just how little he knows about fighting and survival in Vacuo. I don't think he's got what it takes to be a real Huntsman. None of you do.
—Bertilak to Fox Alistair and CFVY

Chapter Six

You should have said something. It's important to share this kind of information with the people you hired to keep you alive!
—Bertilak when he learns of August Caspian's fake Semblance
You aren't the boss of me either, Carmine.
—Bertilak threatens Carmine
Let's make this perfectly clear. The old man will not be going with you, no matter what it takes.
—Bertilak to Velvet Scarlatina

Chapter Thirteen

Get up, so I can finish you off fair and square.
—Bertilak attacks Fox
My boss is interested in people with powerful Semblances. Like someone who can create mood bombs and trigger Grimm attacks. But it looks like I got the wrong guy. I thought something was up with those two. Well played, old man.
—Bertilak explains his true goals to Fox and Edward
You don't know them, but judging by your team's abilities, they probably have a nice fat file on you.
—The Bertilak on the Crown
It's easy for you to say, with all those lofty ideas Ozpin and Theodore drilled into your minds. 'Being a Huntsman is a calling and a privilege, not to be taken lightly.'
—Bertilak mocks the Headmasters
They're just words. You think your headmasters and professors are model Huntsmen? They're worse than all the rest of us. You want to know why I barely graduated? I was tired of being used as a tool.
—Bertilak's motives

Chapter Eighteen

You always think you're smarter than me! Well, look who's laughing now?
—Bertilak to Carmine

About Bertilak

Chapter One

A tall, broad man with a green Mohawk and matching goatee shoved Topaz aside. Coco registered the mace on his belt before she took the rest of him in. A brown hooded cloak made of coarse fabric draped over his broad shoulders. He wore a green chestplate over a dirty black tunic; his biceps bulged from the short sleeves, showing off a long scar stretching down his right forearm.
—A description of Bertilak's appearance

Chapter Three

The Huntsmen were leaving anyway. We just tagged along. As long as we kept up with them, they didn't mind. Much.
—Amaranth to Yatsuhashi Daichi on Carmine and Bertilak
They aren't the sharing type. The Caspians hired Bertilak and Carmine for protection, and whatever their faults, those Huntsmen are serious about protecting them – from everyone.
—Slate comments on Carmine and Bertilak's suspicious behavior
Either Bertilak and Carmine aren't team players, which is odd for Huntsmen, or they're hiding something.

Chapter Nine

Not your fault, kid. Bertilak must have noticed and hurried after him. Bertilak kind of does his own thing a lot of the time, if you hadn't noticed. Too often, if you ask me. That's one of the drawbacks when it's just the two of you hunting Grimm, instead of a team with a strong leader to keep everyone in check. You'll see one day.
—Carmine awkwardly attempts to comfort August Caspian after Edward's disappearance

Chapter Thirteen

I knew something was up with Bertilak and Carmine. I knew they weren't behaving like real Huntsmen.
—Edward Caspian
Bertilak and Carmine...they knew that we were causing those emotion bombs. I hired these fools to take us to safety, but over time, I realized they weren't taking us west at all, at least not directly. By the time I figured that out, though, we were already in the desert and the Grimm were following us – we needed the Huntsmen to survive. So I figured I'd try the distress call, see if it brought anyone in.
—Edward Caspian to Fox

RWBY: Before the Dawn

Chapter Nineteen

Eh, they're done for. If they were up against Carmine, they were likely on the wrong side of that blast. A shame, though. I always liked that bunny girl.
—Bertilak, to Sun Wukong on the fighting in the distance
Gill took a lot out of me. My fault for letting her touch me. And for trusting Carmine. Pro tip: The prettier the face, the uglier the person.
—Bertilak to Sun
I've been lying here wonder when you were going to free me and invite me to your little party. I'm just an innocent victim here.
—Bertilak's sarcasm
Believe me, no one deserves that. I don't like feeling powerless, and neither would you.
—Bertilak on Gillian Asturias' Semblance
Put those toys away, boy. I don't mean to fight you. And you'd better hurry if you want to save your friends.
—Bertilak to Sun
I didn't say that. But let's just say I'd like to see Carmine again. Repay what I owe her.
—Bertilak announces his intentions
Carmine always had a soft spot for the Asturias twins. She used to call Gill "Queenie" in school. She bought into the whole royalty thing big time. I think she just wanted to get as far away from the Atlesian way of life as possible. Ironic that she left Atlas so she wouldn't be pressured into joining their militia, but here she is, part of another dictator's army.
—Bertilak on Carmine's origins
I bought into the promise of being rich and helping to rule a kingdom. I don't care if they're really heirs to the throne or whatever nonsense. If you have the power to take something, then that's all the birthright you need. Jax and Gill have a lot of power. Some of it even came from me.
—Bertilak on what the Crown is to him
Not that I was eavesdropping, or have any desire to help you, but...Malik.
—Bertilak aids Velvet, Octavia, and Sun
There's no way she went down that easily, and she's not going to the city. When things get rough, Carmine cuts her losses and runs. I'm gonna find her. See how she likes being hunted by the best Huntsman in Vacuo.
—Bertilak to Sun
