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.


Reese appears as a young girl with light green hair swept to her right, with green 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 hooded sweater 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

Reese's weapon is a bladed hoverboard 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.

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.


Reese and her team are students at Haven Academy, from the kingdom of Mistral. Her team journeyed to participate in the 40th Vytal Festival combat tournament, hosted by the kingdom of Vale, but were defeated by Team RWBY in the team round of the tournament.

Reese and the other students defend Beacon Academy during the invasion by the Grimm and the White Fang. In RWBY: After the FallVelvet Scarlatina states Reese and her team was observed defeating a Death Stalker at the Fall of Beacon. Reese posed for a picture, allowing for her fellow Huntress-in-training to obtain a Hardlight Dust copy of her hoverboard.
