Reese Chloris[1] is a member of Team ABRN. Reese and her team were first revealed at the RTX 2015 RWBY Panel on August 7th, 2015. She fights Blake Belladonna during the Vytal Festival Tournament.

Personality

Reese exhibits a playful and youthful nature, being headstrong and eager to help others in battle. However, she is also stated to be an extremely poor leader by Coco Adel, being too considerate of her teammates' thoughts and concerns for every decision to made. Coco described her as acting like a "12-year old hanging out at the mall".

Despite this, Reese is also one of the more courageous Huntsmen, being one of the first to defend Shade Academy from The Crown. She was also partially affected by the Battle of Beacon, looking away when it is mentioned by Xanthe Rumpole.

Appearance

Reese appears as a young girl with light green hair swept to her right, with teal eyes and fair complexion. She also wears two black facial markings on her cheeks.

Reese's attire reflects a skater motif. She wears a dark purple hoodie over a mauve sweater. She also wears black shorts as well as knee pads and elbow pads on her arms and legs. She wears black shoelaced high top sneakers.

Powers and Abilities

She is shown to be quite adept at hand-to-hand combat, parrying and matching Blake's attacks aggressively. However, she also embarrassingly fails to make an acrobatic jump, instead falling squarely on her tailbone. Given that she had been fighting on her hoverboard until that point, she potentially forgot to account for how she was landing on slippery ice. She was also easily deceived by Blake's clones, despite the fact that Blake had previously created several against her, which may indicate a lack of foresight, situational awareness or just plain gullibility.

She is described by Scarlet David as individually being a strong fighter, but a poor leader.

Weapon

Main article: Reese's Hoverboard

Reese's weapon of choice is her Hoverboard, it is bladed and capable of transforming into twin pistols. She is able to ride on the hoverboard to swiftly navigate battlefields, whilst also fluidly switching to using it as a shield and melee weapon. For ranged attacks, she can throw her hoverboard in addition to using its twin pistol form. Her hoverboard can also incorporate fire Dust, allowing her to create fiery blasts and generate heat, or ice Dust allowing her to freeze enemies.
