** Ozpin is the headmaster of [[ExtranormalInstitute Beacon Academy]] and the most politically powerful huntsman in the whole of Vale; he accordingly dresses the part, wearing a very smart dark green suit and carrying a dark, silver-topped cane. The silver handle of the cane has a delicate vine-like pattern flowing down it. Where the handle joins the shaft, there are cogs and a silver lever. Although it complements his appearance, he can also use it in battle, wielding it like a rapier and using it as a focus to [[BarrierWarrior produce a barrier]] that can even stop the full force of a [[StoryBreakerPower Maiden's power]]. This kind of use does not require activating either the lever or cogs. [[spoiler:Given that his first incarnation favored a magic staff, it's no surprise he'd end up eventually making a more modern equivalent.]]
