a rwby role play

about us
Legends. Stories, scattered through time. Mankind has grown quite fond of recounting the many exploits of heroes and villains, forgetting so easily that we are remnants - byproducts - of a forgotten past.

Join the ranks of Remnant’s prestigious Academies as you fight to protect the Four Kingdoms from the clutches of the evil Creatures of Grimm. Alternatively, you may work towards bringing the world to its knees by fighting against the last sparks of humanity. Red Like Roses is based on the hit web-series RWBY by Monty Oum and Rooster Teeth Productions.

What will happen this year?

feb 16 we are excited to announce the unveiling of the new skin, CASPIAN! :D

full name

first year beacon student
Athene's aura is blue with slight shades of white in it. Her aura changes color slightly at any time of day, in morning, her aura gets a yellow stripe and at night, she gets a really dark blue, almost black stripe on her aura. Athene's aura makes her feel stronger and make her feel like she can do anything, even though she can't. Athene's aura can even sometimes not work if her mind is full of other thoughts, dark ones to be exact. Her aura can sometimes even effect other people, but that doesn't happen that often.

Athene's semblance: Every time she hits something, for example a grimm, she gets faster, but her speed is limited, with that, her power slowly starts to go down so she can become from a slow and strong fighter to a fast and weak fighter.

Garotte: A fairly small, broad, curved blade made of iron is held by a grip wrapped in regular, grey goat leather. Because it only has a razor-sharp point this weapon is the ideal choice to turn your enemies into Swiss cheese. The blade has a small, curved cross-guard, just large enough to give the blade the perfect weight balance. The cross-guard has a lavish bear paw on each side, marking the house it belongs to. A large pommel is decorated with precious gems, no expense is spared for this gorgeous weapon. The blade itself is bare. No markings can be found. While the hilt is as elegant as its owner, the blade has to be as strong as its owner. When not in this stage, the Garotte can even transform into a gray flamethrower, which Athene can even use when it's in her normal Garotte stage.

Yellow Dust: The Garotte mostly uses yellow dust, which makes the fire in the Flamethrower Garotte yellow, and that can paralyze a foe, but it does take some time to process.

Dark Dust: This makes the Garotte, somehow float and the dagger and flamethrower can turn into two separate weapons.



Athene appears... Ordinary, for the most part. She doesn't draw special attention to herself by wearing flashy clothes, flaunting her body or staining her form in some way. (Dying hair, tattoos, etc) However, with that in mind, Athene is quite a beautiful young woman. With a slender yet toned shape, gorgeous features and ample assets. She is 5'6" tall, her body dipping into the shape of an hourglass with a C-cup bust and a pleasantly toned rear. While not a regular at the gym it is still obvious that Athene keeps herself in good shape, able to hold her own when it comes down to physical exertion.

The young woman's face, as a whole, is attractive. Where her body would be called hot, Athene's face is more often described as cute. Thin lips and white teeth, a small and slightly upturned nose, smooth cheeks with a splash of freckles across them and, best of all, a pair of striking electric blue eyes that are far, far colder than they have any right to be. Aside from her freckles Athene's face is free of blemishes, lightly tanned skin as smooth as silk. Her hair is just above shoulder length, naturally wispy, and fall where it may, a fringe crossing in front of her right eye on multiple occasions. It is a pleasant dark auburn color.

Despite what people in her old school may have claimed, Athene doesn't really care much about fashion. She will, for the most part, throw on anything that's in her wardrobe without thinking about it too hard, and takes no notice of what kind of clothing other people put on. With that said, she is currently wearing a black turtleneck, dark trousers and a simple pair of white sneakers. Her trousers have quite a few pockets, it's worth noting.


Skin Deep: Athene is not the friendliest soul; she has a way of silently analyzing people that seems to be rather unnerving. Her face is usually stony, revealing nothing about what she is thinking or feeling. As such, people tend to avoid her, unsure how to approach her. In conversation, Athene is clipped and detached, seeing situations objectively. If a person is unable to keep up with her, Athene disregards them as incapable and moves on.

As such, Athene does not make friends easily, being viewed as aloof most of the time. However, if time is taken to push past her walls, Athene can be an advantageous ally. Highly competent, Athene has a way of finding the truth and using it to guide her actions.

Bare Bones: Athene has incredibly high standards for herself with lesser expectations for others. In this way, she often pushes herself past her breaking point, viewing anything other than perfection as failure. She is ever the strategist, planning her actions and reactions multiple steps ahead of others.

Though she may not seem like the type, Athene is a natural-born leader. Though she doesn’t mind following a capable person, Athene will take control over a situation if she finds the need and does incredibly well at adapting to different situations.

Transparent Soul: When viewing the world, Athene tends to observe her surroundings and develop quick connections between information. She intends to use all the facts around herself to apply the optimal path. However, she can tend to be cold and impersonal with others. Athene will not fret about doing morally questionable actions if the situation calls for it.

She is very intuitive, preferring to trust her judgment with tricky problems. Above all, Athene values clarity, for life to be as transparent as the air. If an idea cannot be expressed concisely and as such, it is not worth further exploration on her part.

Born minutes before her twin Apollyon, Athene was practically destined to take care of her little brother. Of course, Apollyon always hated when she called him that, but she came out first; facts are facts. And so, Athene would spend most of her life watching out for him. Unfortunately, Apollyon was the type of person that people liked to target. He always had the “absent-minded professor” aura about him, leading him to be socially awkward. Sometimes he mumbled his words, too shy to speak up for himself. Even at the best of times, he was too clumsy for his own good. And all of this was regardless of the fact that he liked other boys. Overall, there was simply too much fodder for bullies and this was the reason why Athene took it upon herself to be Apollyon’s invisible protector. She was the reason why his bullies suddenly stopped harassing him, that the gym teacher was nicer to him. Athene knew that he would eventually grow into his own self – which he would do around the age of fifteen – but for his early years at least, Apollyon needed a guardian angel.

Her parents liked to tell her that she was always this way, cold and brilliant. Adam and Jane said that when they took the two of them home from the hospital, she seemed to be the one in control, not them.

Needles to say, school was simplistic for her. She sat bored, while the other children struggled to grasp concepts that she seemed to know intuitively like history. Athene knew Apollyon was just as smart as her, but he seemed to be nicer about his intelligence than her. Point being that she was the one that often got in trouble for calling the others stupid, not Apollyon (even though he thought the same thing). It eventually turned out that they were required to attend a different school in Vale because the one in Mistral knew that they couldn’t accommodate them. It didn’t really matter to Athene until she was told that she and her brother couldn’t celebrate their twelfth birthday together. That day, she got detention for getting in a fight with her grimm studies teacher due to the fact that he taught them wrong about entropy and the grimm theory.

That night, to her pleasant surprise, Athene was able to catch a few consecutive hours of sleep for the first time in months. And in her dreams, she saw the one and only headmaster of Beacon academy, he seemed to be talking to her on going into Beacon academy, which was her life goal since the day she found out about Hunters and Huntresses. But that dream was short lived when her mother woke her up. Being a bit irritated by that waking up session, she went to her school, where everything was still normal. Until she suddenly activated her aura at the end of class. She was a bit surprised that she could all of the sudden use her aura. With that, she started going to libraries to learn more about these auras, and many other things such as dust and semblances.

However, for the most part, Athene ignored her supposed life in Beacon and continued at her normal life, until one day, it actually happened. She was called to the headmaster's office, just to hear the happy news that she will go to Beacon in a month or two. And when that passed, she got to Beacon where she is now only beginning her massive adventure.


your c-box name


Well, I got an inspiration from two of my classmates that would turn into this character if mixed together.

Wanna talk a bit about yourself, place it here. Any other comments, place it here.

Referred by: I wanted to be in a RWBY Roleplay, but I didn't find a good one, but I stumbled on RLR and checked it out, I was pretty surprised of this forum and decided to join.
