Schist was a settlement in the Kingdom of Vacuo, first introduced in the novel, RWBY: After the Fall.


Schist was overrun and destroyed by Grimm, as August Caspian accidentally set off his Semblance while travelling with Edward Caspian, Bertilak Celadon and Carmine Esclados, drawing the monsters to the settlement.

The remnants of the settlement called upon the aid of Huntsmen following the Grimm attack and joined with the nomadic tribe of Tuff. They were aided by Team CFVY in safely reaching Coquina after a human trafficking scheme led by Carmine and Bertilak was impeded.

Known ResidentsEdit


  • Schist is a coarse-grained metamorphic rock which consists of layers of different minerals and can be split into thin irregular plates.
    • This maintains the theme of Vacuan settlements being named after rocks and geological formations.
