I'm with Missfire and Zeta. It doesn't bother me, but it isn't my jam either.

Ha, 3 out of 4 strikes outs so far. Looking like I'll just make her an overly aggressive coyote faunus after all.

 This is a WiP at the moment, but this is my character so far.

Name: Primrose Holiday
Age: 18
Sex: Female
Orientation: bi
Height: 6'1
Weight: athletic

Personality: Primrose is considered to be fairly honest and straight forward, but a hard life of living in the wilds of Vacuo has made her not tolerate stupidity. She loves drinking and gambling and is considered to be a as she calls herself sometimes. "A Mean bitter bitch"

Background: Primrose wasn't always such a mean or blunt person. However events of life just turned out that way. Primrose started out life living in a small farming community in the wilds of Vaccuo. It was rough life to eek out from the dirt and arid lands of Vaccuo but what they had lacked in material goods they made up for in spirit and hard work. Life was hard but she was happy. Then it all came crashing down one cold night. It seemed a pack of wild Grimm had come. They had come to attack the village she lived in.

 Being this far out her village could not afford to keep a Huntsman o Huntress on permanent staff. So though they tried in the end Grimm were simply too much for them. Tucked away in a cellar Primrose was forced to watch as her family was mercilessly hunted down and killed before her very eyes. The screams of the villagers as they died filled her ears, then as it seemed to come to head. A Beowolf ripped open the door to the cellar she hiding in. As she stared into those lifeless crimson eyes Primrose felt her blood run cold. Even when the villagers had fought amongst themselves there had always been life in their eyes. Not here. Those eyes promised but one thing, death. Seeing those eyes was more than she could take. After all Primrose was just one little girl. One frightened little girl. She did the only thing she could think of, she screamed. She screamed in such abject terror. The creature seeming to take some delight howled along with her. Just as it reared back to attack her the creature's head suddenly fell. Coming through the door was a woman with a weapon. It was a Huntress. She grabbed Primrose and fought her way out of the village. "Close your eyes little one!" she said to her and Primrose did. However there was too much curiosity in her and against the advice of the Huntress she opened them.

What she saw would forever haunt her for the rest of her life. The broken and mangled bodies of the villagers, their faces contorted pain, suffering, and most of all terror. Everywhere her young eyes looked she saw the same looks of terror on the faces. It made her shiver as she knew that she had almost worn that same look on her face. "Close your eyes you damn stupid kid!" the Huntress said. Finally after about third time Primrose closed them, but even she could still see those terror stricken faces. She couldn't keep it back for long as she suddenly began screaming loudly and in terror. Her mind gone. "Damnit!" the Huntress said before aiming a blow to back of Prim's neck knocking her out.

 When she awoke Primrose was under a blanket and there was a fire crackling and huntress in a duster off to the side. "Finally awake are you?" she heard the voice of the Huntress as she tipped her hat up to look at her. That's when it all suddenly came back to her. Primrose suddenly seized up shaking, breaking into a cold sweat and nearly on the verge of hyperventilating. "Oh hell! breath Kid! Breath!" she said shoving a bag over her mouth. Soon enough Primrose passed out. She awoke again this time to feeling of being in a wagon. When she climbed out she looked up. 'Was beginning to worry about you there kiddo." she said with a jovial smile. The blonde woman extended her hand. "Goldie Earp." she said as Primrose took it. "Primrose Holiday." she said to her. "My mommy and daddy are gone aren't they?" she asked the woman. Who stopped a bit startled by it. "Yeah. They are." she said. Tears spilled from her eyes. "Teach me." she said. "What?" Goldie asked her. "I said teach me. Teach me to fight and kill Grimm." she said looking out at the desert. "Well ok." she said to her.

 So began Primrose's training in the arts of being a Huntress. Once more Primrose found the training grueling but she endure. She needed to endure. That was the way it was. She learned quite fast that out here in the wilds you lived and you died by your weapon. Food and your weapon were all you needed to survive and you only did so if you could prove you were the bigger predator. As she learned to be a Huntress Primrose found she quite adept at using knives and shotguns. It was out here that she perfected her own weapon's style using her shotguns to get close then using her knives. However after a time Goldie suggested that Primrose should go to one of the schools. The embittered Primrose at first scoffed at the idea but after Goldie pointed out that if it helped her survive then it was worth it. Which is what why she suddenly found herself on the way to Vale as that was where Goldie had trained.

Combat Style: Primrose focus most of her combat on offense with a secondary focus on dodging attack while she keep on coming. Her particular weapons of choice are two sawed-off lever-action shotguns that deploy bayonets called "Morning Rose" and "Evening Rose." She runs at a target firing the shotguns. As she fires them she uses the lever action to spin the gun loading the next round. So the guns always look like they are spinning in her hands as she's firing them. When she runs out of ammo she spins them in the holsters which contain the tubes of ammo she needed and reloads them. She uses her shotguns to deploy the first stage of her semblance. When she gets in close Primrose will deploy the bayonets and fight as if she were using knives. This is where she proves how nasty a knife style fighter she is and where she deploys the second stage of her semblance.

Semblance: Double Impact. She uses her guns to place an explosive Rune on the target before tapping the rune with one of her knife blades or a part of her body to set it off doing an extreme amount of damage.

Other: Because growing up in the wilds of Vacuo Primrose learned much in the way our to gamble. After all when you barter and trade learning how to scam the other guy out of his bullets is just as effective as buying them yourself and you can turn a hefty profit to boot.

Season 3 of RWBY has already started off in perfect form. And then I saw this and it made me want to write RWBY stuff again since the last games I was in didn't go too far(MissFire should remember the last one we were in lol) So if you don't mind Miss, I'll be bringing Fenrir back into action.

Name: Fenrir Zherneboh (Black Wolf God)
Age: 17
Sex: Male
Orientation: Straight
Height: 6'3 - 73
Weight: Muscular

Personality: Fenrir to people who don't know him seems to be a stoic individual, not talking much and always seeming to regard the best response before he does. He's the strong, silent type and because of that is a wonderful listener. Once you get to know him though, his personality changes.

 He opens up and becomes much friendlier, laughing and smiling and joking much more than people think a person who looks like him would. He even considers showing you his face underneath the mask. Once he considers someone a true friend, his loyalty to them is unwavering(people attribute this to his wolf nature), and he would do anything for them. He's something of a flirt, and enjoys paying compliments to a pretty girl or making one blush.

Background: Fenrir was born into a strange life. Not strange as in bad, but strange as in rare. His family long ago started a colony deep in the mountains of Mistral, and it was there that after several years of settling in that they discovered impossibly large Dust deposits. It didn't take long for them to start mining it, and soon the Zherneboh Dust Works was created. They quickly rose to prominence due to the purity of their Dust and are now one of the largest producers in the world alongside organizations like the Schnee Dust Company.

 Due to it's rather remote location and Grimm attacks from time to time, all members of the Zherneboh family are trained to become Huntsmen or Huntresses. This has become even more important since the White Fang has begun targeting them due to them selling Dust to everyone, and White Fang labeling them race traitors. On top of that they are also periodically attacked by radical human groups who don't think Faunus should have such power and resources.

Fenrir was born seventeen years ago and has been trained since birth to not only one day run ZDW, but in combat as well. As he grew, his skills in combat and tactics grew with him, until eventually it was discovered he was one of the rare individuals who could infuse himself with Dust and remain in control. He was enrolled in Sanctum when he was old enough, and quickly set about trying to prove himself. As a Faunus, he has always felt he's had to work twice as hard for half as much recognition. And every bit he got, he earned through talent and hard work.

He even won the Mistral Regional Tournament, becoming the youngest Faunus ever to do so. And then he won it three more times.(Phyrra Nikhos is a hero of his) With his achievements, it was no surprise when Beacon was his next destination on his road to becoming a Huntsman...an assassination attempt by a White Fang cell sped the process along nicely though.

Combat Style: Fenrir's fighting style can be described as simple, but effective. Swift and powerful blows are his bread and butter, combined with utilizing his natural claws and fangs when the opportunity arises. Although he can take hits better than most, his style relies on speed just as much as strength, and one of his favorite things to do is avoid or counter an attack, then use his opponents momentum to increase the force of his next attack even more. And due to being a Faunus, when he fights, he seems to embody the movements and ferocity of a wolf.

To increase his combat effectiveness, Fenrir has been trained and augmented so that he can implant Dust directly into his body. Different kinds of Dust create different results, but all of them are destructive and can be manipulated by body movements or by throwing punches and kicks(which increases impact force when used in conjunction with physical attacks). His weapon(s) is called Beowulf, and exists as a gauntlet/greave combo that allows Fenrir's speed, defensive capabilities, and strength to be used to their fullest potential. Due to his natural abilities and Dust manipulation, Beowful doesn't possess a second form like most weapons. However, a length of highly durable chain rests inside each piece and they can be launched out for long range striking attacks or used as makeshift grappling hooks to help Fenrir get around his environment easier or to pull enemies into his range. When not in use, they appear to be high tech armbands and ankle wraps that glow with circuitry lines.

Semblance: Fenrir's Semblance is called "Primal". By activating it, his form actually shifts into something resembling a werewolf, although he suffers no loss of cognizance. He's still Fenrir, he just looks like a more extreme version of his normal Faunus self. The advantages of this form are simple, but effective. Essentially all of his physical stats are increased by a staggering amount, making him much faster, stronger, more durable, etc...

Other:

Appearance: Appearance: Fenrir can be considered imposing whether he's covered or not. He stands at 6'3, and is well muscled from a life time of training and fighting even before training to become a Huntsman. His right eye has a thin scar over it from a fight he barely survived against a Grimm when he was younger. He also has a scar over his mouth on the same side that he usually covers with a face mask. As a Wolf Faunus, he has several physical features that set him apart from normal people.

His hair is snow white and short, stopping right along his jawline, although it's usually covered up. His teeth are sharpened and resemble fangs, while his nails resemble claws. His ears are pointed, and his eyes glow red in dim light or when he's feeling strong emotions. He tends to wear armor and clothing that conceals his appearance for the most part, and it's a rare thing to actually see what he looks like. Except his right arm is always exposed to show his clan symbol on his arm. His clothing is reminiscent of "shinobi" culture and he even has a bright red scarf that seems to shift and move rather unnaturally. If you do however see him under the mask, you'd see a handsome man with strong features and a kind smile. In the center of his chest is a small hexagonal port that opens and perfectly fits a dust capsule. This is how he infuses his body with dust in combat.

He has tattooed the Zherneboh clan symbol on his right shoulder.

Name: Alexander Platina (Alexander Platinum)
Age:17
Sex: Male
Orientation: Straight
Height:6'2
Weight: Athletic

Personality: Alexander is a generally nice guy with a sense of justice unfounded by most individuals. He tries not to butt into situations that don't pertain to him, yet he can't help but defend the weak when he is there to help. He likes making friends and isn't picky about an individual, race or otherwise. He could never bring himself to hate anyone no matter what wrong they have done. At random times Alexander can be goofy with fun antics which requires him to smile brighter than usual.

In combat, Alexander is completely focused with no room for anger nor hilarity. Just pure combat meditation.

Background: Alexander was born to a retired huntsman and huntress who both wanted to raise their child away from violence. Yet, Alexander has proven at a young age that being a fighter was in his blood when he constantly got into fights with bullies in school. Fed up with the idea of his son always coming home bruised, Alexander's father taught him how to dodge and block with hopes of less bruises the next time his son got into a fight. After that, Alexander was suspended from school because he broke a kids arm during a fight. This time, Alexander's mother got fed up with him fighting so recklessly that she taught him how to control his attacks and how to win a fight without causing to much damage.

Both parents, finding that their child took their lessons to heart and even continued to refine his technique on his own, inevitably decided to teach their son their abilities in combat when they were once hunters. Alexander, through trials and tribulations, built his own fighting style from the teachings of his parents who had different semblances than him. At the age of 14, Alexander's mother passed away from sickness with her final wish was for her son to become a great man like his father. To that end, Alexander desired to become a huntsman like his father was before him all the while never forgetting to defend those who couldn't defend themselves. Armed with his mother's dual gun-edges and his father's shield that were modified to fit his combat style, Alexander spent 3 years preparing for the day he would be accepted into Beacon.

Combat Style: Alexander is an all around fighter with a great defense, surprising agility, and sharpen offense. He has different fighting styles to suit different scenarios or to his liking. His mother's weapons, Srebro Heart (Silver Heart) and Złoto Heart (Gold Heart), are two dual hand-guns that have an extendable grip to form a short spear for each gun-edge. He utilizes multiple elemental dusts to power the shots from Gun form while spear form uses it's short reach to attack from close quarters where a gun would naturally hinder at. His Father's shield, Royal Guard, is a large circular shield that is made of a material that makes it light and durable. It was also made to be thrown and ricochet off any surface while mostly returning to it's owner through a magnet attached to the left gauntlet. In cases of needing to dual wield his weapons, Alexander could place his shield on his back in order to free up his left hand.

The gun-edges have multiple forms when combined together.
Thousand Yard Stare: Both gun-edges can come together to form a rifle that reaches as far as a thousand yards. The weakness of this is it requires both patience and stability to use it and is highly implored not to be used for anything close.
Bouncing Betty: Both gun-edges can be attached from the rear end to each other to form a auto-fire Bouncing Betty that can be thrown into a crowd of enemies and spread short range fire in all directions. The weakness of this form is that it renders the user weaponless (save for the shield) for a short period of time.
Royal Javelin: Both gun-edges can be attached from the rear and extended to form a double bladed Javelin that has incredible span and combat controlling ability.

His style of fighting revolves around perfected usage of offense, defense, and reflex. He both dodges and defends attacks whenever he sees fit and uses gun mode to to both reach and push the enemy into a defensive all the while testing reflexive skills. Spear mode is used for the closest battles and for whittling defense of an enemy. His shield is utilized best for defense, but at the right moments used to stagger an opponent by throwing it at their head or simply shield bashing them.

Semblance: Silver Paladin: Alexander manifests his Semblance in the form of armor that chances features of his combat style.
Avian Form: Manifesting his aura, Silver Paladin generates an external armor around Alexander that grants greater speed and mobility while granting a gliding ability in mid air. The down side of this form is his weapons gun mode loses some of it's accuracy and his attacks don't do as much damage as regular. His defense remains the same as does the accuracy of his shield.
Wall Form: Manifesting his aura, Silver Paladin generates an external armor around Alexander that grants greater defense and resistance while taking away from speed, agility, and mobility. His attack, however, remains the same as his base attack. 
Fighters Form: Manifesting his aura, Silver Paladin generates an external armor around Alexander that grants greater attack and capable of shattering defense all the while increasing his accuracy with his gun. In this form, his weapon usage becomes capable of piercing through defense and more damaging as a result. His defense takes a great toll however as he loses a great amount of resistance and endurance. His mobility remains the same as his base form thus making him relying on dodging in this form.

WindsOfLust and Juggtacular are both approved. MasterOfMyFate, your character looks good aside from the weapon. I'd like to avoid using swords if possible. If you want to go weapon/shield, how about a mace or some other blunt weapon? In any case, that's 2/4 for the next group!

Would a spear work? I'm not big on blunt weapons. Also, is there some band on swords?  ???

Not so much a ban as she doesn't want to see a lot of repeat weapons, since one of the best things about RWBY series is that pretty much no two weapons are alike.

Assuming Master edits his character slightly, that will be 3/4. So you more or less just need one more. Since RWBY is heavily based around partners and teams, I really don't want any odd people out or they'll get left behind/not have enough to do/have to NPC half their team/whatever.

It's just that Wolfy's character uses a sword as her main weapon and since unique weapons are an important part of RWBY I really want to stay away from things that have a lot of overlap. That's why I'm discouraging more sword wielders. If you really, really, really want a sword I could let you get away with a rapier, though. At least it's a thrusting sword and not a slashing sword.

Well the entire concept of my sword was span from this image.

Spoiler: Click to Show/Hide

I mean we can work it to where it's more like Pyrrha's sword where it is a straight blade that's used more for thrusting.

edit:

How about something straight like this?

Anything else really takes away from the image I had of my character having hand-me-downs like Jaune while remaining a Paladin sorta figure. The chain-sword is not anything innovative and really doesn't give me room for a gun. I'm also really more interested in my original gun-blade idea than anything.

That one looks good to me. If you're willing to use that it would be perfectly fine.
