She got accepted to Beacon two years sooner than most, and has led team RWBY against grimm, the white fang terrorist organization, mysterious criminals, and homework since. Abilities: -Aura: Like all humans and faunus on Remnant Ruby has something called 'aura', and like most hunters has hers unlocked. This gives her highly enhanced reflexes and agility, capable of deflecting machine gun fire, land safely from long falls, and leaping up falling debris. Aura also increases durability and regeneration, and its common in duels between hunters to eat bullets straight to the face or slashes full across the torso with damage to nothing but their aura levels. Finally, it gives her a mild danger sense, and enables her to use a… -Semblance: a manifestation of a huntress’ aura, Ruby’s semblance revolves around speed. She’s capable of flash steps, long bursts of increased speed, and even creating a powerful whirlwind effect in her wake. Equipment: -Crescent Rose: A high-velocity-sniper-scythe, Crescent Rose was designed and built by Ruby herself and is her most prized possession. Held in a magnetic holster on her belt, it has a collapsed form, a rifle form, and a gun-scythe form. Its shots have enough recoil to propel through the air when she doesn’t set herself, and she often uses that to her advantage in fights. 4 clips and a whirlwind dust clip carried along with. -scroll: basically a super complicated smartphone/id card, it strangely doesn’t have signal here. Flipside background: Ruby was born Ruby Xiao Long, the second child of Summer and Taiyang Xiao Long. Taiyang’s parents were first generation immigrants from China and he grew up poor, with both his parents working long hours to try to make ends meet. Alone and in a dangerous part of New York, it wasn’t all that surprising when he fell in with some triad wannabes that ran their neighborhood. What was surprising was how quickly he became disgusted with that life, and it wasn’t long till he actively seeked the authorities to turn his gang over to them. The detective in charge of the investigation and Sting was a Lt. Crow Rose. He saw something in the young man that caused him to encourage him to join the force, and it wasn’t long till Taiyang was working under Crow on the force. It was a night after a day of patrol that he met Crow’s sister, enjoying a beer and a game at his superiors house when she dropped by for a visit. Summer was the child of an affluent family with long ties to New York. It wasn’t a surprise that a Rose had moved up the police chain as fast as her brother did, and it likewise wasn’t a surprise when she graduated from MIT with top honors in engineering. Despite their incredibly different backgrounds, the attraction was almost instantaneous, and it was only a year later that they were married. Their first child was Yang Xiao Long, and she seemed to inherit both her father’s wild side and her mother’s stubbornness. She had a temper that burned as vibrantly as her blonde hair when provoked, and despite her cheerful demeanor it was a strange year that didnt’ have her suspended for fights at least twice, no matter how much the other side often deserved it. Their second child was Ruby, and while she carried the joy and determination that seemed ingrained into the entire family, her energies were directed elsewhere. She was all but six when she walked in on her dad working on the family car and almost instantly felt enamored with the beast of gears, tubes, and metal hiding under the hood. By ten she could take that engine apart and put it back together herself, and it was clear which parent she was going to take after. It wasn’t any surprise then how much she idolized her mother. Summer specialized in alternative energy, and her biggest work was a plant that turned coastal tides into enough electricty to power a small city. It even helped solve a mild energy crisis in Japan, and when the award was presented and the announcer called her mother a hero, Ruby knew exactly what she wanted to do with her life. She worked, nay, slaved her way through highschool with flying colors despite her occasionally flighty attention span, and wrote a thesis paper on thermonuclear engines that when presented at a regional science convention caught the attention of John Nereci himself. She recieved a letter of acceptence to Vincent University Before she even finished her junior year. She joyfully accepted, even to the mild protests of her parents that she wait until she finished highshool, and moved into a dorm in Parrel. Six months into her time here, she’s found university to be far more work than she expected, and whatever time she’s not frazzled trying to keep up with all the homework she spends vegged out on her computer or (occasionally) doing the workout routine Yang practically forced her to adopt. On top of that, she works part time at Ted’s to cover spending money that her scholarship doesn’t, all of which basically adds up to poor Ruby not getting much sleep. She still loves it all though, even with the occasional bout of homesickness.
