He rests beneath the waves... along with his warning.
—Yuma, regarding Ghira Belladonna's messenger

Yuma was a White Fang assassin, first introduced in "Necessary Sacrifice". He is a bat faunus working for Fennec and Corsac Albain and their terrorist faction in Kuo Kuana.


Yuma is a tall male bat Faunus with spiky brown hair and a goatee. He wears a black and dark gray uniform with gold buttons and zipper like the rest of his enforcers. He has brown bat wings on his back.


Yuma is a professional and quiet individual that takes his job as White Fang enforcer and assassin seriously. Outside of battle, he presents himself as serious and stoic, but also adds a bit of dry humor to his thoughts.

He genuinely enjoys his missions and is seen smiling when attacking Blake Belladonna and choking the Menagerie Guard. He can also enjoy his job too much as choking the guard distracted him and made him vulnerable to getting knocked out by Kali Belladonna.

Powers and Abilities

Yuma is a capable and trusted White Fang enforcer and assassin. He is so far the only Faunus in the series who has wings due to it being a rare trait[1], but he has only used them to glide and make surprise attacks. He is strong and uses his wings to his advantage attacking from above where people don't expect. He is also stealthy, being able to catch Blake completely off guard. He seems to lack defense as he was knocked out by a tea tray wielded by Kali.
