Yatsuhashi was born in the kingdom of Mistral, where he lived with his parents, grandfather, and his sister, Hiyoko. At the age of eight, he discovered his Semblance, and being a problem child, decided to use it to his advantage. However, this took a turn when, in a fit of jealousy, he wiped his mother's memory of his sister for a day. Yatsuhashi was traumatized by this and took care of Hiyoko while he waited for his mother's memory to return. Once they did, he came clean to his parents about discovering his Semblance, to which his parents told him to never use the Semblance again. However, his grandfather suggested that he went to Beacon Academy to master it to use his ability for good.


First YearEdit

During his first year at Beacon, Yatsuhashi went through the Beacon Academy Initiation with the task of finding a relic in the Emerald Forest on his second day at the Academy. To land on the ground safely after being launched into the air, Yatsuhashi spun through several trees with his sword (compared himself to a helicopter seed), and then stabbed a big tree before sliding down it the whole way and cleaving it in half when he reached the ground.

In the Emerald Forest, Yatsuhashi caught Velvet Scarlatina in the midst of a nasty fall, catching her in the air in order to land safely. However, despite having just saved her, Velvet showed disdain towards him due to his Mistralian origins, to Yatsuhashi's dismay, though the two eventually started over once Yatsuhashi made it clear he had no hostilities towards her.

After being chased by a pack of Boarbatusks, the two make it to the temple, where they discover the relics along with Coco Adel and Fox Alistair, where Velvet notes are playing tablets fashioned after a deck of cards, and takes the Queen of Hearts card for their duo.

The group then finds themselves surrounded by a horde of Ursai. Coco forms a plan for their escape, where she kills one Ursa to break the ring whilst Yatsuhashi knocks another aside for Fox to kill with Sharp Retribution. Meanwhile, Velvet stays in the middle and shouts directions & warnings to the teammates while Coco brought up the rear to cover their backs.

The team is later properly christened by Ozpin as Team CFVY.

Second Year, First SemesterEdit

Fox, like most Beacon students, watched the Beacon Academy Initiation take place. He grew a high amount of respect for Team RWBY, as they had quickly earned a hotshot reputation at Beacon. Shortly after the Initiation, Yatsuhashi and Fox Alistair confronted Weiss Schnee about her attitude, much to her dismay.

Second Year, Second SemesterEdit

V2 08 00045

Team CFVY returns from their disastrous failure at Lower Cairn.

During their second semester, team CFVY was sent on a mission to the settlement of Lower Cairn near Mountain Glenn, supervised by Professor Peter Port. There, they found the settlement to not only be wiped out, but completely flattened by the Grimm. Along with his team, Yatsuhashi found six survivors from the Grimm, a family of a father, a mother, and four children hiding in a nearby cave. While attempting to rescue the family, the father was killed by an Ursa that attacked the Huntsmen, causing the mother and children to run back to their cave. To the Huntsmen-in-trainings' horror, the cave was then crushed by a Goliath that was rampaging nearby. Team CFVY evacuated from the settlement which had been completely lost, and their mission was considered an outright failure.

Yatsuhashi briefly appears with his team in "Field Trip", returning from a mission with his team and passing Velvet Scarlatina as she explains to Team RWBY their reasons for arriving so late.

He later appears in "Breach", arriving by Bullhead along with his team and Peter Port, and helps to stem the tide of Grimm.

The Battle of BeaconEdit

V3 11 00048

Yatsuhashi at Beacon

Yatsuhashi is among the group of students present at Amity Colosseum at the beginning of this Grimm attack on Vale. His weapon flies to the floating arena in a rocket-propelled locker. After a Giant Nevermore breaks into the stadium, he and Sage Ayana deal a blow that decapitates it, leaving it to evaporate upon death.

He is among the students that choose to fight this battle rather than flee. The group takes an Air Bus to Beacon where they begin to fight the Grimm as well as rogue Atlesian Knight-200s and Atlesian Paladin-290s.

RWBY: After the FallEdit

Following the Battle of Beacon, Yatsuhashi, along with his team, stayed in Vale for a short while to help Glynda Goodwitch secure the city. Eventually, team CFVY decided to move on to new things, and with Glynda's support, transferred to Shade Academy.

At Shade, team CFVY received a distress call from the settlement of Gossan due to a Grimm invasion. They found the settlement had been destroyed and aided the survivors in reaching the settlement of Feldspar. After Feldspar was invaded by Grimm, the team successfully lead the nomads to Coquina without any casualties.

Additionally, with the aid of his team, Yatsuhashi uncovered a plot set by Carmine Esclados and Bertilak Celadon to traffic humans for an unknown employer and subsequently arrested the two.

When they arrived at the settlement of Coquina, Team CFVY encountered Team SSSN, who informed Yatsuhashi and the rest of the team about the events that transpired in the Battle of Haven.
