Gossan was a settlement in the Kingdom of Vacuo, first introduced in the novel, RWBY: After the Fall.


Gossan had a fully operational support CCT tower, but it was subsequently destroyed in a Grimm invasion.


Gossan was overrun and destroyed by Grimm, as August Caspian accidentally set off his Semblance while traveling with Edward Caspian, Bertilak Celadon and Carmine Esclados, drawing the monsters to the settlement.

The remnants of the settlement called upon the aid of Huntsmen following the Grimm attack and joined with the nomadic tribe of Tuff. They were aided by Team CFVY in safely reaching Coquina after a Human trafficking scheme led by Carmine and Bertilak was impeded.

Former ResidentsEdit


  • "Gossan" is intensely oxidized, weathered or decomposed rock, usually the upper and exposed part of an ore deposit or mineral vein.
    • This maintains the theme of Vacuan settlements being named after rocks and geological formations.
