Volume 2

Best Day Ever

Mercury, I will seriously pay you to shut up.
—Emerald, to Mercury Black
Hmm... Options are nice.
—Emerald, contemplating about Tukson's book selections
Spare us the thought of you procreating...
—Emerald, to Roman Torchwick

Welcome to Beacon

I'm fine. Just watch where you're going.
—Emerald, to Ruby Rose after meeting each other for the first time


Just enough to make it look like she's untouchable. She doesn't broadcast her power, so it puts her opponent at a disadvantage.
—Emerald, on Pyrrha Nikos' fighting abilities

Dance Dance Infiltration

It appears all the dancers have partners.
—Emerald, to Cinder Fall

Volume 3

Round One

My teammates are all kind of... Introverted. Really socially awkward.
—Emerald talking about Mercury
Well, if Mercury and I see you down the line, don't think we'll go easy on ya.
—Emerald to Weiss Schnee and Yang Xiao Long
I just... how can they be so happy all the time!?
—Emerald talking about Team RWBY
It's the heiress and the bimbo.
—Emerald, referring to Weiss and Yang

Lessons Learned

I'll try not to get blood on it.
—Emerald, after Coco compliments her outfit
I won't be the one bleeding.
—Emerald, to Yatsuhashi

Beginning of the End

Ugh, headache. One mind I can handle, but two is a stretch.
—Emerald, on the limitations of her Semblance

Battle of Beacon

It's almost sad...
—Emerald, apparently overwhelmed by the destruction she is witnessing

Volume 4

The Next Step

She wants to know... What about the girl?
—Emerald, asking on Cinder's behalf what will happen to Ruby

Volume 5

The More the Merrier

I don't care about Salem! But I owe Cinder everything. You want to fight her that bad? Be my guest.
—Emerald, to Ruby

Vault of the Spring Maiden

You wanna get to them? You're going to have to get through all of us.
—Emerald, to Yang

Haven's Fate

It's not over! Cinder will come back, she'll have the Relic, and she'll stop all of you! She won't let us down.
—Emerald, to everyone about Cinder

Volume 6

So That's How It Is

I will cut off more than just your tail.
—Emerald, to Tyrian after he mocks what happened to Cinder
Cinder! We failed because of Cinder...
—Emerald, to Salem about who's responsible for the defeat at Haven Academy


Why did you come with us, the night Cinder and I found you?
—Emerald, asking Mercury about joining her and Cinder in "Beginning of the End"
I just... Cinder was the only family I ever had. She cared about me, taught me things... But without her here, I don't know if what we're doing--
—Emerald, before being interrupted by Mercury
You don't know what you're talking about!
—Emerald, to Mercury who claimed that Cinder doesn't care about them
So, what? Are you saying we should just leave?
—Emerald, to Tyrian

Our Way

Mercury, I wanted to...
—Emerald, before she stops and notices Mercury staring at Salem
What is she doing?
—Emerald, witnessing Salem creating an army of Grimm

Volume 8


If she doesn't want to, I'll come.
—Emerald, to Cinder
I've been working on my Semblance. I can help. I won't tell anybody.
—Emerald, to Cinder


I know I can't beat you. But I can fill that thing full of holes before you take me down.
—Emerald, to Penny


Cinder, you were hurt. I was just trying to help.
—Emerald, saddened after Cinder refuses to accept her help.


So you're still going to Vacuo? After what I just told you?
—Emerald, to Mercury after telling him of Salem's true goal


What are you doing?
—Emerald, to Hazel and Oscar
I knew I sensed some weak mind nearby.
—Emerald, after she and Oscar run into Yang's Group
Or maybe because I know how to get out of here. Anybody coming?
—Emerald, to Yang's Group
It's her.
—Emerald, fearful of Salem's presence
I didn't do anything with it.
—Emerald, to Salem after the latter wrongly suspects her of stealing the Lamp


—Emerald, mourning Hazel after his sacrifice
No, I'm with blondie. You don't like me, I don't like you. So how about we just part ways and you never have to see me again.
—Emerald, to Yang's Group


See? If Miss Hero with all the answers doesn't have an answer, then we have ours.
—Emerald, to Team RWBY
I think you're wrong, by the way. I highly doubt you're in the same place you started. I-I mean, yeah, y-you guys have been getting your asses kicked, some of that my fault, but like, you're at war. You're gonna take hits. Look, I'm just going to be super pissed if you all finally decided to give up the moment I switch sides.
—Emerald, encouraging Ruby and offering to join her group


I have. Feels weird.
—Emerald, to James Ironwood about her switching allegiances to Ruby's Group

About Emerald

You're in denial. And if you're gonna start having a crisis of identity or some crap... keep me out of it.
—Mercury, to Emerald before she ends up attacking him
I'm not going to just forgive her. Everything that happened at Beacon. She lied to us, tricked us. She is dangerous.
—Yang, to Ren about Emerald in "Ultimatum"
I've seen what you can do, Emerald. However this fight ends, we could really use someone like you.
—Oscar, to Emerald in "Ultimatum"
