-- I bet you wanna walk away, run away, look away, turn away Honey you can't hide
The faint clicking sound could be heard as Rose made her way along the cobblestone path of Shion Village. Recently, the place had been plagued by small bandit attacks trying to raid the village's stores. Rose was here to put a stop to that. She'd travelled into town under the quiet of night, shrouded in a cloak so she would remain hidden. Only a Faunus would have the vision to see her, and while she couldn't discount that there might be one among the bandits, she would move far too quickly to be caught. She could smell rain on the horizon. The guards had let her pass the moment she flashed her credentials; a small nod, and they'd figured out the reason she was here.

To save lives, of course. As was her duty.

The sound of movement caught the huntress' attention, and she stopped quickly. A man was behind her; taller, fairly agile, but she could handle him. "Give us your valuables and we might spare your life," he demanded. "Surely you've got something hidden under that cloak of yours." A fool he was... A fool indeed.

"I most certainly do." She hadn't even moved, and suddenly his hand was far enough away that she could dart out of his grasp, the cloak off in a flourish as Wraith extended into its long spear form. The primary blade was angled toward the ground, and Rose stood poised and ready. The man looked confused for a moment, before his face spread into a wide grin.

"Oi, Crim!" The one called, that smirk still on his face. "This'un gots some fight in 'er." He looked giddy as he rubbed his hands together.

"Another one, Einion?" The one named Crim walked over, spinning what looked like a scythe on a chain in a circle menacingly. "Aye, she looks good, too. Keep her alive for a bit... Surely the boss won't mind," he said, his face spreading into a sickening grin. Rose spat in their direction, clearly unimpressed.

"Then put your money where your mouths are." Rose didn't wait for them to react. She shot forward, Wraith still in its longspear form, the blade coming up just in front of Crim's chin as he pivoted backward. Einion swung the chain of his weapon, wrapping it around the center of Rose's spear, and yanked hard. Rose braced herself, twisting her body as he yanked, her body almost shooting past, if not for her leg wrapping around his throat, her weight balanced mostly on his shoulders for a brief second as she tightened, cutting off his air for a moment. She planted the butt of Wraith on the ground, using it as a pole-vault to launch herself in the air, high above Crim, who'd moved forward to defend his comrade.

As she landed, she broke Wraith into its dual form, shortening the handles down to a foot in length, the blade ready on each of them; she looked like she was wielding a pair of daggers. One wrist flicked forward, wrapping around Crim's weapon and disarming him; the other wrapped around his waist, and with a hard yank he was flying back toward Rose. She leaped up, striking him with an aerial kick as he flew backward, the impact rocking his Aura significantly. Einion had stood up by now, but only long enough for Crim to collide with him. The fighting ensued for a bit longer, Rose ducking around and manipulating the bandit's attacks and eventually drawing them out of Aura.

Of course, by now the town guard stood by, watching in awe as the agile Huntress quickly dispatched them. Both of them were at her mercy, a blade at each of their throats; if they so much as moved, she could take their lives.

"I can get rid of them permanently, or you can take them into custody. It's your call," she said, looking at the guards. But then another sound caught her attention... And the guards pointed behind her.

There were more of them.

"Ah, hell," she muttered to herself, knocking both of the bandits she'd been fighting with out cold, just narrowly dodging an arrow from another of them. Now she was outnumbered six to one. Great... Just great.

Weapon
Jet Stream - Less of a weapon and more of a technological system which Yoru built himself for ease of movement, this equipment is made up of specialised boots and gloves. The boots are fitted over his feet, doubling as incredibly comfortable hiking boots so as to make them functional, with the inner linings made of decent wool for warmth and comfort. Attached to his wrists are specialised gauntlets which match the boots, though while deactivated they remain hidden under Yoru's sleeves.
Semblance
Bring the Rain - By covering his skin with some sort of clothing, Yoru essentially keeps his Aura contained, preventing it from expanding out from his form. With each section of skin he reveals, perhaps say by parting himself from an article of clothing, his Aura is slowly released from it's cage, allowing him to draw from it more effectively. By the time he is wearing nothing at all, his body almost gives off a glittery yet transparent glow as his full Aura is revealed.

He was almost there, it seemed... Signposts pointed him in the right direction, the path twisting through the darkened swamp land and forested groves, leading him towards his destination. Shion Village. He had always wanted to visit and enjoy the smaller villages across Anima, and he'd stopped by a few now that the turmoil of the Regionals was over. But, in the dark of night, with sounds around him of life and shadow, he knew there was danger... And something on the horizon.

Having repaired and collected his cloaked robes, he was once again garbed in the black shroud that kept him hidden, his powers, his strength. The night was his cover, allowing him to keep in stealth wherever he went. A brief breeze caught his hair and clothing, billowing it behind him. On top of that, he had fashioned himself a few pieces of protective wear, light armour that wouldn't impede his speed and movement too much, and could be quickly removed should he need to... strip down.

"Despite the threat of Grimm and bandits... It's oddly peaceful out here," Yoru muttered to himself, walking among the trees as they swayed gently against the air, the breeze pushing them to and fro, some of the leaves coming loose and falling to the ground. His head lifted, glancing to the sky above, the stars glittering amongst the void... Wait, what was that sound?

Yoru perked up as he heard fighting ahead, distant but nearby, the clash of steel. He broke into a run, rushing towards what he assumed was Shion, the village perhaps under attack by Grimm or bandits. Sure enough, he came upon the guards, both of them holding their ground, but nearby was... "Rosemarie?" His voice was a hush under his breath, quiet as he recognised his sister, from when they had met before during the Regionals. What was she doing here?

Though, that was answered quickly enough as he spotted her tousling with the bandits, the source of the sounds he'd heard earlier. He clenched his fists, looking to the two guards either side of him and making a gesture for them to stay put. Just as he looked up to assess the situation, Rose was knocked aside, thrown to the ground violently.

Protective instincts kicked in, a powerful surge of Aura in his form as Yoru ignited the water dust hidden beneath his robes. He was like a blur, rushing forward and stopping just in front of where Rose had landed, his hand coming out to form a small disc of water in the air. Quickly whipping it around to deflect the oncoming volley of arrows, he looked over his shoulder, making sure his sister was alright.

Saying no words, Yoru simply ran into the group of men, arms flaring as he dodged their counter strikes, ducking and weaving between the blades that flashed through the air. "Get away from my sister," he growled out, his voice not rising in anger, but simply rolling out in a deep, menacing tone.

Before they could react again, his arms shot out either side of them, the large group surrounding him now, but with a sudden burst of energy the water expelled in split torrents, one in each pointed direction from his palms to blast into their bodies and knock them into the dust as they had done to Rosemarie. Here and now, he was proving that no matter the circumstances, he would protect his own.

There was the sight of flashing steel everywhere as Rose ducked and evaded where she could, some strikes even glancing off the pauldrons she wore. Shots were fired, weapons spinning this way and that to block shots; Rose moved with speed, her Semblance taking full hold over her body as she moved this way and that, evading and blocking shots, deflecting the ones she couldn't with her Semblance. That was, of course, until they all rushed her at once, leaving her barely able to defend; one strike caught her in the gut, sending her flying hard away from them. So much for untouchable, she thought to herself, her mind processing. She let herself land a little harder, making her body look limp despite her grip on her weapons. She ended up facedown, focusing her senses; she'd be able to hear them coming as they moved closer. She could catch them off guard that way.

Or she would have, if not for a second set of footsteps. Her gaze snapped up, and she wanted to groan loudly and roll her eyes. Really? He was all the way out here, looking for her, at this time? Oh, would she ever have a few words for him. He had no right to step in. She was here for the bounty, not him. She'd make that much clear. The bandits were hers to claim, and if he wanted to be a shit and step in, then she sure as hell wasn't going to give him a cut. He was, after all, interrupting her little bit of fun.

"Well aren't you just great at ruining fun," she said sarcastically, standing up as she looked entirely unarmed, her gaze flattened at her elder brother. "You always were a shitty strategist when it came down to things," she remarked, feeling compelled to ignore his presence... She wasn't exactly grateful for it, after all. He'd totally screwed her plan over. She could've probably taken out at least three of them by catching them off guard.

"Get lost, Yoru," she snapped coldly, before shooting forward at the incoming bandits. A flash of steel again, and her weapon was suddenly in the longspear form, driven hard into the chest of the first bandit she saw. A little pressure, and she felt a pop!, and he went limp. Five left. She twirled the spear, catching the one behind her from shoulder to hip in a deep gash, before she turned, her weapon across her shoulders as she slit his throat with a spinning motion. Four. A foot was in the face of another, her toe catching him in the cheek. Her foot quickly switched directions, her heel catching him in the temple, before she drove his face towards the ground with a yank of her foot. He screamed in pain, and she drove the spear into the back of his neck, cutting right through his spine.

Three. She turned, taking them all in as she waited to see what her brother would do. After all, he'd have just seen his sister dispatch three bandits in the span of a few seconds. Would he stay, or would he take the hint and leave?

Surprised? No, Yoru couldn't honestly say he was at this point. After the conversation he'd had with Rosemarie back in Mistral, it was clear she wasn't happy with him; well, that was an understatement, she downright hated him.

And while he felt that pain of guilt, that sorrow at being looked at with anger, he could never blame her for how she felt about her big brother, the one who abandoned her and Arya all those years ago. But that just made it all the more important that he not abandon her now, even if she didn't exactly need him.

As the dust settled from his water splashing outwards, he stepped back to let Rose dash in, putting her words aside and watching as she attacked the incoming bandits with swift and vicious strikes, felling half their number in a matter of seconds; that left the other three, and Yoru could hear them approaching him, bruised and battered from their encounter with his torrent of liquid that had blasted from his palm moments earlier.

Remaining still and motionless, he waited for them to come, suddenly and quickly leaping off the ground as they made to strike, using a bit of water to propel him upwards and lithely turn in the air, his hand taking a grip on the new weapon he'd had made for himself. Hippocampus, the blade of the sea, it's hilt held in his right as he twirled and landed on the other side of the trio of bandits. With a click, the telescopic nodachi blade extended, an incredibly long blade with intricate grooves down the flat side of it.

Within the momentum, he gripped the hilt with both hands, rushing forward as he fed water from his dust up the grooves to amplify his control over the blade and push it harder, swinging across with the blade from behind. The sharp edge cut straight through in one fell swoop, beheading the three bandits easily and leaving their bodies to crumple into the ground.

Releasing a long sigh, Yoru stood up straight, his countenance one of serious complexion as he looked at Rosemarie. Another click, and the nodachi blade disappeared into the hilt, allowing him to stash it under his robes as he placed his hands on his hips.

"I abandoned you once before, I don't intend to do so again; whether you need my help or not," he exclaimed with sternness, the hint of silver in his eyes gleaming behind his veil of blackened hair. "That being said..." His expression became calmer, softer, as he smiled at his sister. "You fight good... You've come a long way since our childhood days."

So he'd taken out the rest of the bandits. Whatever, she thought to herself, flicking her weapons into their short dagger forms and hitching them to her belt. Yoru couldn't take a hint, obviously, and he wasn't going to leave her alone easily. Whatever the case, she'd test him. If he didn't think he was going to abandon her, then he'd have to make his point very, very clear. She was making hers, after all: her point was that she just didn't give a damn.

"Whatever." She didn't even acknowledge the compliment. She knew she fought good. Spend years fighting Grimm like she had, picking off bandits here and there, and you'd learn to do your stuff right. Spears were a difficult weapon to wield, and she wielded hers like a master. At the moment, however, she had a pest for a brother to deal with, and unfortunately she wasn't going to be rid of them easily, she was sure.

"I'm still taking the pay for dealing with these shitstains. If you don't like it, you can either fight me for it, or you can take a hike." She gestured with a thumb in the direction out of town; he had no choice but to accept that she was taking her reward. Technically, they'd been her kills, after all. Anybody else, she would've split the reward. Yoru? She couldn't give two shits if he wanted his share, because as far as she was concerned, he could take his opinion and shove it up his ass.

And she'd let him pick what he wanted to do. Turning on her heel, she started to walk in the direction of the center of town. If he followed, then she'd deal with it. If he didnt? Then she wouldn't care.

A woman of few words, it seemed, but her point was made quite clear by her demeanour... Yoru wished he knew his sister as well as he should, but the young girl he had grown up with all those years ago had grown, and changed, and while she impressed him greatly and filled him with pride... The Rosemarie he was witnessing also scared him, frightened him immensely. He only wished he knew how to get through to her properly.

"I guess I'll just have to settle for that," he remarked in kind when all she said was, 'Whatever'. It was all he was going to get out of her, so he wouldn't ask for more, not now. He hadn't earned the right to yet.

Stepping forward, he moved towards his sister slowly, cautiously, though his posture remained strong and sturdy; perhaps not physically, but Rosemarie was indeed his quarry in a different way, and that meant he had to remain firm and sturdy as a rock in his posture to keep her from sweeping him away.

Nevertheless, Rosemarie explained that she'd be taking the pay, and Yoru put his hand up as if to stop her, but quickly shook his head. "You'll hear no qualms from me; if you had tried to give me a share, I would have refused it anyway. This makes things simpler, thankfully." Even as he kept a serious countenance and posture, his expression managed a smile; perhaps enough of these would draw one out in Rose.

Watching as his sister swiftly turned on her heel and walked away, Yoru gave a sigh, but there was no hesitation now. He strode forward further, quickly catching up to walk with Rose back to the centre of town. Yoru wasn't sure where she was going or what other jobs she had in store, but he would be there for her no matter what she said. After all, that's what big brothers did... right?

Welcome
Welcome to World of Remnant. We are an AU, no-wordcount RWBY roleplay beginning at the conclusion of Volume 3. The Fall Maiden is dead, her powers in the hands of the enemy. Beacon Academy has fallen, and Vale is soon to fall itself. The Vytal Festival is a disaster; thousands dead, many more injured. Grimm populations are at an ever-present surplus. What dire circumstances has Remnant fallen prey to?

Updates
23.12.16 Happy Holidays from all of the staff here at World of Remnant! We'd like to thank everyone here for supporting us. We're nearly 30 members strong and nearly a year old, and the best RWBY roleplay site out there! As 2016 nears an end and Vol 4 reaches its halfway point hopefully we can keep this momentum going forward! Stay tuned as the staff will have some stocking stuffers for everyone in the near future.

13.12.16 Salutations! As many of you are well aware a BIG update launched Sunday. A major event, a mini event, a new continent is opening up to be explored, and a lot of lore has been expanded upon. You can read all about it in the 6th edition of our Newsletter. For those of you who have read it already, I've added a couple of things today so give it a second look.

06.12.16: Hey guys! We're coming to you with a small update from the staff desk regarding pending applications. As you know, we have been VERY bogged down with applications, so we are making a slight change to how things are going to work. From now on, all members are limited to ONE pending application at a time, as opposed to the previous allowance of two. This is to help lighten our work load as staff and allow us to get other work that has fallen by the wayside completed. We know you are all excited for new things, but we as staff need time to get things done as well!

Secondly, players who have more than 3 characters must wait a minimum of 3 days between posting new character applications. Players with more than 5 characters must wait a week between applications. This is to space things out a bit and allow us to streamline the app process so we aren't daunted with 5 or more applications to review per day.
