The island is safe enough for a family to live in their house and for people to build a combat school but is also large enough to have areas infested with Grimm like its forest.
Patch is relatively secluded and includes heavy forested areas that Yang ventured into, bringing Ruby along with her when they were very young in an effort to learn more about her missing mother.
Many Grimm have appeared in the forests of Patch. Notable examples are a large amount of smaller Beowolves and a Giant Ursa.
The island is the location of the childhood home of Ruby and Yang and the combat school they attended before entering Beacon.
It is the location of Signal Academy where Taiyang Xiao Long acts as a teacher and Qrow taught before quitting.
It is first seen in the "Red" Trailer when Ruby visits her mother's gravestone and fights many Beowolves in the snow covered forest. The same cliffside is also visited by Ruby and Taiyang in "Round One"
Sometime before enrolling in Beacon Ruby and Yang were training in the forest before a big Ursa attacked them and was defeated by Yang.
After the Fall of Beacon, Ruby and Yang return to Patch and live there for a while recovering. Jaune Arc, Nora Valkyrie and Lie Ren visit Patch and together with Ruby visit the cliffside gravestone before embarking on their journey to Mistral.
- A patch is a piece of cloth or other material used to mend or strengthen a torn or weak point. It can also mean the act of mending or strengthening something.
