"Battle of Beacon"
"Heroes and Monsters"



Fox was born a blind orphan in Vacuo, hailing from a tribe called Kenyte. During his time in the tribe, his peers and family considered him weak due to his disability. At one point, his parents were killed when a part of the settlement was destroyed in a sinkhole, resulting in him being taken care of by the tribe in a communal fashion.

Fox was trained to fight by his honorary uncle, Copper, as he was the one person in the tribe who didn't view him as a frail boy. Copper was eventually killed by a loner from the tribe who wanted something he had, resulting in the tribe killing the murderer as punishment. Because of this, Fox decided to turn to Beacon Academy with the goal of protecting others who couldn't protect themselves.


First Year

During his first year at Beacon, Fox went through the Beacon Academy Initiation with the desk of finding a relic in the Emerald Forest on his second day at the Academy. To land on the ground safely after being launched into the air, Fox uses his Accessibility Dialogue Assistant to help him cut through treetops before spinning around a branches and landing in a crouch.

In the forests, Fox finds a partner in Coco Adel, whom he gets along with well, the two making it to the ruins with relatively no issue. On the way, they come across a Death Stalker's den, which Fox identifies and claims that only an idiot would go inside.

In the temple, they discover the relics; tablets fashioned after a deck of cards, in which Fox picks out the King of Hearts. As they prepare to leave, the two notice Velvet Scarlatina and Yatsuhashi Daichi arriving, chased by a pack of Boarbatusks. After the boars are defeated and the others claim their relics, the group finds themselves surrounded by eight Ursai.

Coco forms a plan for their escape, where she kills one Ursa to break the ring whilst Yatsuhashi knocks another aside for Fox to kill with Sharp Retribution. Meanwhile, Velvet stays in the middle and shouts directions & warnings to the teammates while Coco brought up the rear to cover their backs.

The group is formed into Team CFVY by Ozpin, where Fox reveals his Semblance to the team for the first time.

Second Year, First Semester

Fox, like most Beacon students, watched the Beacon Academy Initiation take place. He grew a high amount of respect for Team RWBY, as they had quickly earned a hotshot reputation at Beacon. Shortly after the Initiation, Fox and Yatsuhashi Daichi confronted Weiss Schnee about her attitude, much to her dismay. He also met Ruby Rose, and along with Coco, helped advise the new Huntress-in-training.

Fox at the Breach

During their second semester, team CFVY was sent on a mission to the settlement of Lower Cairn near Mountain Glenn, supervised by Professor Port. There, they found the settlement to not only be wiped out, but completely flattened by the Grimm. Along with his team, Fox found six survivors from the Grimm, a family of a father, a mother, and four children hiding in a nearby cave. While attempting to rescue the family, the father was killed by an Ursa that attacked the Huntsmen, causing the mother and children to run back to their cave. To the Huntsmen-in-trainings' horror, the cave was then crushed by a Goliath that was rampaging nearby. Team CFVY evacuated from the settlement which had been completely lost, and their mission was considered an outright failure.

Team CFVY was originally supposed to handle the dance in "Dance Dance Infiltration", but due to unforeseen circumstances in their mission, that duty was passed to Team RWBY.

The team finally appear for a brief time in "Field Trip", with Coco Adel leading the way as the team disembarks from their airship.

Fox and the rest of his team, assisted by Professor Peter Port, arrive in a Bullhead to provide reinforcements for Team RWBY, who are busy defending Vale from the Grimm hordes during the events of "Breach". After Fox uses Sharp Retribution to destroy a large group of Grimm, Coco eventually takes over the fight.

RWBY: After the Fall

Following the Battle of Beacon, Fox, along with his team, stays in Vale for a short while to help Glynda Goodwitch secure the city. Eventually, Team CFVY decides to move on to new things, and with Glynda's support, and transfers to Shade Academy at Theodore's praise of the team.

At Shade, Team CFVY receives a distress call from the settlement of Gossan due to a Grimm invasion. They find the settlement destroyed and aid the survivors in reaching the settlement of Feldspar. After Grimm invade Feldspar, the team successfully leads the nomads to Coquina without any casualties.

Additionally, with the aid of his team, Fox uncovers a plot set by Carmine Esclados and Bertilak Celadon to traffic humans for an unknown employer known as the Crown and subsequently arrests the two.

When they arrive at the settlement of Coquina, Team CFVY encounters Team SSSN, who informs Fox and the rest of the team about the events that transpired in the Battle of Haven.

Between Novels

Sometime between RWBY: After the Fall and RWBY: Before the Dawn, Fox and his team note that transfers from Beacon and Haven Academy are being harassed by Vacuan students. Fox comes up with the idea of the Beacon Brigade, something of a safe space for survivors of the fallen Academies which he likens to a Vacuan nomadic clan. CFVY invite Iris Marilla, Team ABRN, and Nolan Porfirio to the group.

RWBY: Before the Dawn

Hunting The Crown

Fox, along with his team, takes to illegally hunting for The Crown at night, having heard news of Carmine and Bertilak's escape.

One week after the start of Team SSSN's first week at Shade Academy, Fox and his team meet with SSSN, where Sun Wukong offers to aid them in stopping the Crown. Team CFVY is initially opposed to this, but later decides to consider it. Fox and his team go to an 8am class with Xanthe Rumpole, where the professor discusses the Great War with her students.

After classes, Teams SSSN and CFVY walk around the city, visiting the Weeping Wall at Vacuo, which has a list of missing people, including Rosa Schwein, who Sun recognizes as Pink, a thug who he had fought the previous night who had attempted to kidnap a woman. At the Weeping Wall, the group notices a young Faunus girl around their age breaks down when she realizes her older sister is now missing as well. With this information, the group returns to Shade Academy.

At Shade, Team CFVY introduces Team SSSN to the Beacon Brigade, , who are survivors of the falls of Beacon and Haven. Sun finds himself to dislike the idea of the group, and tells them it's a bad idea. He storms off, leaving Fox and the rest the Beacon Brigade to continue without him.

At night, SSSN joins CFVY on one of their nightly patrols. During it, Fox and Coco watch the Pits, a local nightclub, in search of Huntsmen who had abandoned their duties. Coco explains that she had snuck into Rumpole's office, and the professor hadn't found anything on The Crown. During their patrol, they spot Green and Brown attempting to kidnap a merchant. Teams SSSN and CFVY chase them, eventually coming into an abandoned Dust refinery. The teams lose track of the thugs, and Fox senses nearly 50 Auras within the building, including Rumpole's. Coco decides she'll confront them the next day.

Shade Academy Re-Initiation

The following morning, Fox, along with other Shade Academy students, is called onto the campus Meeting Grounds for an assembly, where Theodore tells them of a group of students patrolling with business of local authorities at night. Because of this, he declares a school-wide curfew at Rumpole's suggestion, as well as a temporary reshuffling of teams due to a large wave of Beacon and Haven students.

Fox is present for the Shade Academy Initiation, where he is placed as the leader of Team FNDU alongside Nolan Porfirio, Dew Gayl, and Umber Gorgoneion. While not much is known about his team's activities, Umber states Fox was a bad leader during its short duration. He later attends another Beacon Brigade meeting, where he explains the group's origins to Sun.

Sometime after this, while Coco is out on a mission with Team ROSC in the Wastelands, Fox and Yatsuhashi notice that despite Team NOVA having returned from their task, Velvet had gone missing with Sun. The two find and barge into Neptune Vasilias' room, demanding to know where they were. However, the underclassman refuses to betray Sun who had asked him not to tell anyone where they were, forcing Fox and Yatsuhashi to take more extreme measures. The two take Neptune into Shade's courtyard and hold him over a fountain, hoping that his fear of water will cause him to break. As they do so, Yatsuhashi tells Fox that they should stop and the harassment they were doing is cruel, but Fox only dismisses him as being soft. Despite this, Neptune refuses to tell them were Sun and Velvet were, instead hinting that the information they need was on his Scroll. Fox and Yastuhashi discover that the two had gone to The Mirage, a nightclub in the desert, and decide that the three of them would go find them.

Before they can do so, however, they are interrupted by Rumpole, who tells them they won't be breaking the curfew. Fox smugly puts that they frankly don't care, and Rumpole would have to stop them. The professor obliges to this request and attacks the group, leading to a small skirmish that draws in a crowd, including Theodore. During the fight, Rumpole muses they if they can guess her first name, she'd let them go. Fox uses his ADA device to start guessing names, eventually figuring it to be Xanthe. Despite this, Rumpole continues to attack the group, forcing Yatsuhashi to use his Semblance on her, revealing that she had been under mind control. Theodore calls the three students and Rumpole to his office to explain.

To their shock, a now-lucent and shaken Rumpole tells them that she had been tipped about the Mirage being one of two Crown headquarters in the Wastelands, the second being near a CCT relay tower. She had been attacked by Carmine and was ordered to delay any Crown investigations by the group's leader. The Shade staff and the students decide to form a plan to rescue Velvet, Sun, and Team ROSC from the Wastelands.

Fox calls on aid from Nolan, Sage Ayana, and Octavia Ember to find Team ROSC, who had been pinned down by the Grimm after an encounter with Carmine. Once the group slayed the monsters, they discover a secret underground Crown Bunker that served as a hidden base for the criminal group. They venture inside, discovering Rosa talking to a woman named Gillian Asturias, who is readying for a war and building an army. Due to being vastly outnumbered, they sneak back to Shade Academy, discovering that Neptune and Yatsuhashi had saved Sun and Velvet, but Yatsuhashi has been captured by The Crown.

There, Rumpole tells about the Gillian Asturias' past in the Academy, and of her brother, Jax Asturias', expulsion from school. Rumpole takes a painting from her wall, showing the group an artist's rendition of the very first king of Vacuo; Malik the Sunderer, who was alive 1,000 years ago. The group puts together they want things to go back to how Vacuo used to be, building an army to restore the old Kingdom; as king and queen. Teams CFVY and SSSN go to Finn Asturias' home to learn more about them, where he tells the students of his children's past, and their motivations. He tells that Pink and Brown – Rosa Schwein and Argento Pocoron – had come by earlier, telling him to flee to the kingdom of Vale, which leads the group to believe the attack on Vacuo is imminent.

In Shade, Theodore rants about the Asturias' corruption, and decides that the authorities can handle the twins due to bigger threats. He believes chasing the two is a trap, and will only distract them from "the big one". Rumpole objects, saying the twins may be in line with the big one, and this Huntsmen Army is an advanced force just like the White Fang had been in Haven. Theodore roars that Shade isn't Beacon, punching a wall with his gloves, leaving a crater in the room and cracking Ozpin's portrait. CFVY and SSSN convince him to let Shade deal with Jax and Gillian, and he restores the original teams effective immediately. They hear gunfire and shouting outside.

The Battle of Shade

Fox and the group then discover The Crown had been attacking Shade, and he along with the rest of the Beacon Brigade, lead the charge on the defense. During the battle, Nolan and Fox fight Umber, who had revealed herself as a member of The Crown, as well as waves of invading Grimm. Fox and the Beacon Brigade cover Velvet, Sun, and Octavia's plan to sneak away and find Carmine and Gillian in the Crown Bunker.

As the sides begin to have to balance battling each other and the Grimm, the monsters begin to turn on the Crownsmen and only attack them, which both sides realize is due to the high amounts of Aura that The Crown has, making them a magnet to the Grimm. Fox uses his Semblance to tell this to everyone in the battle, including The Crown, exhausting him. Soon after, a message from Sun arrives, revealing The Crown's crimes to Vacuo, causing the city to unite against them as well.

At her arrival in battle Gillian, has a revelation about the Grimm's relation to Aura, she begs Jax to retreat with her, and to her horror, her brother tells her they'll win the fight or die in battle. Gillian begins to stop giving him Aura to convince him to run, but he uses his mind control to force her to give him Aura instead, draining all of her remaining strength away. As this happens, Yatsuhashi reveals himself, and attacks Jax. Using her Semblance, Gillian transfers all of Jax's Aura to Yatsuhashi, and the younger Huntsman lobotomizes The Crown's leader, leaving Jax in a vegetative state. When Yatsuhashi asks why Gillian did it, she says she'd do anything for his brother, which is why she formed The Crown with him, but she didn't want to die herself. Out of Aura, the Grimm begin to attack everyone again as Sun, Velvet, and Octavia return and help alongside a fully united Vacuo.

Days after the battle, the loyal Crown members had been arrested and the mind controlled members were let go, the Beacon Brigade meets to celebrate their victory.
