  • So, what's Cinder's final goal, and what's her plan look like?

    So far, we have:

    • Her speech. Obviously meant to sow distrust of the Academies. 
    • Mugging Amber for a fraction of her currently-undefined power.
    • The Black Queen Virus. Might be done with now; might not.
    • An alliance with the White Fang.
    • A massive Grimm invasion.
    • Capturing a Bullhead and turning it against the fleet.
    • Have apparently cornered the Dust market in at least one city.

    My own speculation:

    • Ironwood seemed pretty quick on the uptake. Genuinely on the good guys side and prepped for "what to do if someone hijacks a public event and starts ranting", in on the plan, or taking the opportunity to seize power?
    • Cinder delivered the speech in her own voice, instead of scrambling it or having someone else (Roman, for instance, or someone grabbed off the street) read it. Her cover is probably blown, and most likely intentionally.
    • I see a mutual double-cross in Cinder and Adam's future. Both of them probably do as well.
    • Both finalists targeted were from Beacon, and she planned this for when Beacon was hosting. Her most immediate target is probably Ozpin.

    I now open the floor to your wild theories.

    • Penny was from Atlas.

    • When he said 'both finalists from Beacon,' he meant Yang and Pyrrha, not Pyrrha and Penny.

    • I think she is trying to start a war between beacon and atlas.

    • I think Neo doesn't work for Cinder.

    • Why so?

    • Just the way she opperates. I think she's the most likely character to backfire. She ran away from Raven, she's colored like the joker.  I think it's Neo's character to be a double agent. Think about it... the other two characters are loyal for whatever reason to Cinder they have backstories. Neo we know nothing about or if she's even working for Cinder just working with her. Raven's organization is feared near crow, and it would make sense if there's some connection between Raven and Neo but we just don't know if they are allies or enemies.. She infiltrated a atlus ship.

    • Running away fom Raven is a sensible decision because of what she can do.

    • But we know nothing about Neo. Neo is a character who can do what Neo does. Infiltrate and destory things. Besides we never saw her get recruited by Cinder. Why's that?

    • They could be saving that for a later episode. All we really know about Neo is that she's pink, sadistic and more or less a mute. 

      Also gets shipped with Yang to an surprising degree.

    • She hates Yang yes..

    • Neo is Roman's pet. And if Roman does what Cinder wants, then Neo does what Cinder wants. That's not really that hard to understand.

    • Neo was made specifically as Roman's lackey; that's the whole point of her. She was made because Monty felt like Roman needed a proper lackey if he was going to stick around, and thus Neo was born. She may turn against Cinder at some stage, but she won't turn against Roman unless he does something fundamentally stupid (which I don't see happening).

      What if somewhere in the future Roman gets killed off and Neo becomes Roman 2.0?

    • That would be interesting to see. I mean, the girls kind of know about Neo but she's technically small fry compared to Roman, who is in turn small fry compared to Cinder. If Neo became a Roman 2.0, who's to say she couldn't also become a Cinder 2.0? Some really small villian from the first major arc coming back to bite RWBY in the butt later on down the track because they weren't as concerned about her as they were about Cinder, and by extension Roman.

    • The way I see it Neo is more powerful then Cinder. Cinder is just someone who's powerhungry with a plan. Neo on the other hand beat Yang is psycho enough to try and kill her. Cinder just wants to take over. See where I'm going with this??

      I've always felt she was one of Roman's people not Cinder's.

    • I go with the idea that Cinder is the dragon to the big bad. She paving the way for the big bad to take over and establish peace and order after a time of chaos. Think of what Palpatine did to become emperor in starwars.

    • Pnakasone: Well, yes. She was obviously on the phone with someone, and she's got to have major backing to pull the shit she's pulled. Someone of her age couldn't marshall the resources. She obviously has a patron.

    • Hang on maybe cinder took all that dust so that she could build her own supper weapon and take over the kingdoms.  She is trying to make the current rulers look bad so her take over won't be met with public optoontion
