Historical Figures

Lagune

General Lagune was a military leader of the Human forces during the Faunus Rights Revolution. At the Battle of Fort Castle, the inexperienced general attempted to catch the Faunus off-guard in a nocturnal attack, failing to take into account their superior night vision. Despite having a massive army, he was defeated and captured. Lagune and his blunder are mentioned in "Jaunedice, Pt.2".

His name is derived from the word "Lagoon", which refers to small bodies of water.

Emperor of Mistral

The Emperor of Mistral was the ruler of Mistral during the Great War. Before the Great War started, he appeared to have been okay with concepts like Slavery and suppression of the arts like the General of Mantle. However, he still allowed the arts to flourish in the main capital of Mistral.

Following this battle, the four Kingdoms gathered on neutral ground on the island of Vytal where they formed a treaty and planned the future of Remnant. Although the Kingdoms were ready to bow before the rule of Vale and it's Warrior King, he decided against it. Instead, the leaders redistributed territories, abolished slavery and restructured the governments.

General of Mantle

The General of Mantle (unofficial) was the ruler of Mantle during the Great War. Before the war, a certian "incident" in Mantle made him come to the conclusion of suppressing the arts to prevent future grimm attacks, with the kingdom of Mistral soon following his example to a certain extent. He was also apparently okay with the concept of slavery in his Kingdom.

Following this battle, the four Kingdoms gathered on neutral ground on the island of Vytal, where they formed a treaty and planned the future of Remnant. Although the Kingdoms were ready to bow before the rule of Vale and it's Warrior King, he decided against it. Instead, the leaders redistributed territories, abolished slavery and restructured the governments.


Queen of Vacuo

The Queen of Vacuo was the ruler of Vacuo during the Great War, she is shown to be a Faunus with bull horns and wearing a scarf.

At the start of the Great War, Vacuo remained neutral, due to Mantle and Mistral having established a presence in their territory in the years prior. When the two began pressuring Vacuo to ally with them, the citizens of Vacuo realized that if Vale fell, there would be no one left to stop Mistral and Mantle from conquering them. Vacuo rallied against Mantle and Mistral and pushed them out of the Vacuan territory and allied themselves with Vale.

During the Vacuo campaign, the King of Vale arrived and personally led his army alongside the Queen of Vacuo, thoroughly decimating the opposing forces.

Following this battle, the four Kingdoms gathered on neutral ground on the island of Vytal, where they formed a treaty and planned the future of Remnant. Although the Kingdoms were ready to bow before the rule of Vale and it's Warrior King, he decided against it. Instead, the leaders redistributed territories, abolished slavery and restructured the governments.

Her relationship to Malik the Sunderer, First King of Vacuo, is unknown, if there even is one.


Fairy Tales

The Warrior in the Woods

Warrior woods -1 .png

The Warrior in the Woods is the titular character of a Fairy Tale of the same name. In the story, she was a Silver-Eyed Warrior who protected a village outside a jungle from the Grimm. She was killed by an unknown force, unsure whether it was Human or Grimm. 

In the fairy tale as recorded by Glynda Goodwitch, the Warrior was a lonely vigilante who protected a village on the edge of a lush jungle from the Grimm. She was first encountered by a boy who had decided to venture deep into the woods during a game of hide-and-seek, going deeper into the jungle than anyone ever had before. The boy was attacked by a Boarbatusk, only to be rescued by the Warrior. The girl told the boy to go home and not mention her appearance, and disappeared into the trees without telling him what her name is.

One year later, the boy was once again attacked by a Grimm, only to be once again saved by the Warrior as she killed the Beowolf. This time, however, he was prepared with a dagger to defend himself and a gift for the warrior: new clothes. The woman accepted the gift and left with a warning that the next time he was on his own.

Another year later, the boy was now a young man who had grown slightly accustomed to combat. He is attacked by three Owl Grimm. He is once again saved by the Warrior, who blasts away an Owl Grimm with her Silver Eyes. The man had brought food and a newly forged weapon for the Warrior, hoping to have seen her again. The two ate together, and the girl explained she had lost her family to other Humans in her time, and instead chose to preserve life rather than end it.

By the next year, the village had expanded and the forest shrunk as a result, as such the Grimm grew closer. The boy found the Warrior’s hut, only to find that it was empty and the Warrior in the Woods was gone, having died alone by some force– whether Grimm or Human he wasn't sure. The boy regretted not being there with her, having fallen in love with her Silver Eyes the first time he saw them.

According to Ozpin, The Warrior in the Woods is superficially a cautionary tale discouraging children to stray far alone, or relying too much on others to save them. However, it is also an inspiring tale to help others in any way you can.

RWBY Chibi Characters

Characters who debuted in RWBY Chibi.

Floyd the Geist

Floyd interrupting Mike and Marty's coffee break.

Floyd is a minor antagonist from the Rooster Teeth animated web series RWBY Chibi, the non-canon comedy spinoff of RWBY. He is a mischievous and pesky Geist Grimm that serves under Cinder Fall.

In "Cannonball!", Floyd goes to annoy a pair of Beowolves, Mike and Marty, by calling them "possums" and "dingoes". He brags about how he is a major part of Cinder's nefarious plan, and how he's bigger and more powerful than a Beowolf when he is in his Petra Gigas form.

He is voiced by Kerry Shawcross, who also voices Neptune Vasilias in the same show.

Mike and Marty

Mike and Marty on their coffee break.

Mike and Marty are a pair of minor antagonists from the Rooster Teeth animated web series RWBY Chibi, the non-canon comedy spinoff of RWBY. They are a pair of cynical Beowolf Grimm working under Cinder Fall.

Though Beowolves appeared throughout the series, the first episode to debut Mike and Marty specifically was season 2's "Cannonball!". In "Cannonball!", they bail on a meeting held by Cinder to complain about how her plans and speeches are redundant. They go to get some coffee and take a moment to mourn the loss of a Grimm named Larry that was killed by Yang. However, they are interrupted by Floyd the Geist, who begins harassing and annoying them by bragging and calling them names, causing Mike to want and attack him. Marty holds him back and lets Floyd go, but the two decide to go eat some "innocent humans" to calm down.

In "Monsters of Rock" and later "Battle of the Bands", a Beowolf is part of the band Trouble Clef, and may be either Mike or Marty.

In "Grimm Passengers", Mike and Marty try disguising as humans to hitchhike in people's cars so they can kill and eat them. They first try with Team RWBY, who do not fall for their tricks and pass them by. Cinder pulls up and does not recognize them, and attempts to kidnap them by offering them candy. Even though Mike and Marty recognize her, they decide to take up her offer because they believe she actually has candy. However, when Cinder realizes who they are, she boots them out of the car and drives away. They then try to share a taxi with Jaune and Ren, the latter of which is much more gullible than the others and has to have Ren tell him no.

Mike is voiced by William Ball, and Marty is voiced by Joe Nicolosi.

Other Characters

System No. XX

System No. XX after happily becoming Team RWBY's pet rock at the end of the episode.

System No. XX is the main antagonist and final boss of BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle. It is a machine originally designed by Clavis Alucard to create new possibilities. However, a flaw in its design led to the machine invading the worlds it observed and using them as power bases. To prevent the machine from destroying worlds to create new ones, Clavis sealed the System away using the Keystones of the four selected universes (BlazBlue, Persona 4: Arena, Under Night In-Birth and RWBY).

However, the seal on System No. XX was accidentally undone by Clavis Alucard's daughter, Rachel Alucard, leading to the machine summoning warriors from the four selected worlds and having them fight in Tag Battles in the "Keystone Tag Battle Tournament" inside the Phantom Field, telling them lies as they need to collect the 4 Keystones in order to escape and go back home to their universes.

There are multiple endings, depending on which Episode the player chooses.

In the RWBY Episode, after being defeated, System is sealed inside the RWBY Keystone. Team RWBY then returns to Beacon with the Keystone, planning to keep System as a pet.

She is voiced by Carrie Keranen.
