So the first episode of Volume 2 is out. While the plot continues to thicken like left out cooking oil, I've been wanting to explore a bit more of the origins of the world of RWBY. Mainly that of Ozpin, the spectacled headmaster of Beacon. While anything about him remains mostly unknown, would you care to join me in creating some fanon about his past? I have this in mind: Some years before the current events of RWBY, before succeeding the position of Headmaster, Ozpin was a youthful and well-reserved teacher who saved the city of Vale--after nearly destroying it. A secret project was under development, jointly funded and produced by the Schnee Dust Company and the Executive Committee of Beacon Academy. The goal was to create an elite army of Huntsmen and Huntresses, infused with the destructive powers of Dust and the frightening capabilities of the Grimm. After several failed experiments, a small team survived and Ozpin was assigned to personally train and nurture them. Players will get to assume the roles of these characters, members of the special op team codenamed The Shades of Black. Well, that's just about what I have.
