Overview History



Background

Prior to the start of RWBY: The Grimm Campaign, Vermillion was sent to Kuchinashi under orders from his master to retrieve the magical artifacts located there. Once there, he takes over the Hana Guild to help him with his task and stops the organization's dealing of narcotics in favor of Weapon's. After Javi Pastel refused to sell his artifacts to the Hana Guild, he was later found dead and his artifacts were put up for auction with Vermillion planning on taking them for himself.

RWBY: The Grimm Campaign

Attack on Kuchinashi

He first appears amongst the criminals auctioning for a supposed Magic Necklace which allows the user to control the Grimm. During the auction, his arrival causes unease with the other guests. Later he appears to have been sold the magic item that was put up for the auction. However, before the buyer can be revealed, the Wave launches an attack on the Pastel Manor by using the Grimm to attack it in an attempt to kill all their enemies.

It was originally unknown if he survived the Wave's attack in the Pastel Manor. However, there were rumors that he survived the attack. Later, he was revealed to be alive and captured Taupe after he started to investigate the actions of two of his agents. He sent agents Razz and Fuchsia to act as his agents in Takaya' resistance and is shown to be interested in the magic artifacts. After using Taupe to set a trap for Team SAFR, he confronts both Pyke Rite and Fenix Nemean, fighting both of them while taking notice of Pyke's interesting Semblance. While Team SAFR attempt to fight off Vermillion and escape with Taupe, he takes an interest in the Magic Gauntlet in Arrastra Skye's possession and causes the team to struggle due to his superhuman abilities. When they leave the Hana Guild's main compound, Vermillion chases after them but Team SAFR manage to outrun him and successfully escapes with Taupe.

After the Wave began making a final attempt to ship off their magic artifacts to the capital city of Mistral through a stolen Atlesian Airship Dust Carrier, Team SAFR believed that Vermillion and the Hana Guild would also be there to take the artifacts for themselves. Later it was revealed that Vermillion had hired Abigail Pyre to kill Lemon and bring him her magic artifacts. Lemon stated that Vermillion was doing so for his own boss, as Vermillion stated that "She" really wanted the artifacts.

After Team SAFR defeat Abigail and take control of the Wave's ship, he tells them to give him the artifacts or else he would blow up the ship. After the ship crashed anyway, he and his men surrounded them and ordered they give him the artifacts. Before either side could attack however, Huntsman reinforcements sent by Leonardo Lionheart drive them off with Vermillion personally swearing to hunt down Team SAFR himself.
