The First Step

I don't think sloths make a lot of noise.
—Ren, in response to Nora Valkrie's suggestion for a secret signal

The Emerald Forest

I still don't think that's what a sloth sounds like.
—Ren, after Nora uses the secret signal to communicate

Nora... Please... Don't ever do that again.

Welcome to Beacon

Thank you!
—Ren, to Neptune Vasilias in response to the latter's query, "Uh, aren't libraries for reading?"

Burning the Candle

And I, you.
—Ren, to Jaune Arc regarding their level of "brothership"
Jaune, what is this all about?
—Ren, asking why Jaune is acting out of the ordinary

Dance Dance Infiltration

Wait, what is happening?

Team RWBY has always performed exceptionally in the field. We should be focusing on our own mission.
—Ren, reassuring Jaune

Sure, why not...

The Next Step

But 'junior' isn't a color.
—Ren, to Nora
Well, I suppose we don't have to grow out of everything.
—Ren, about Jaune's Pumpkin Pete hoodie
He certainly does.
—Ren, commenting on Jaune cleaning up nicely


We should go. It's not safe here.
—Ren, disagreeing with the suggestion to bury the Dying Huntsman's body

Tipping Point

You might think of it as Anima's Mountain Glenn, had it never been completed. Years ago, the richest members of Mistral were unhappy with how the Kingdom was being run.
—Ren, talking about Oniyuri to his team
Frustrated with the council, they pooled their resources together to build their own city, with their own laws. They hoped that one day, it could maybe even become its own Kingdom. Many thought it would be the future.
—Ren, talking about Oniyuri to his team
I know my parents did.
—Ren, mentioning his parents to his team for the first time

We're not going to find anything! We just have to press on!

We never get the easy path, do we?
—Ren to Nora, as they hike the mountain

No Safe Haven

For myself.
—Ren, as he decapitates the Nuckelavee

Volume 5

Rest and Resolutions

Well that embarrassment, that desire to go back and tell yourself not to be so stupid, that just proves you're not the same person you used to be. You're smarter, you're kinder, you're stronger, and you're not done growing yet. None of us are.
—Ren to friends, about their growth

Volume 6


Atlas may be the safest kingdom we have at the moment, but their borders are closed. General Ironwood called everyone back.
—Ren to his friends about the situations starting to Atlas

The two nations worked together to create a hybrid city. While it falls under Mistral domain, Atlas keeps a military presence here to help keep the people safe and keep trade between the two nations steady.
—Ren to friends, explaining about Argus

I think it would be best if we had some time to ourselves.
