Team SLVR

The titular heroes of the series. At present, their affiliation is otherwise unknown, but they're all likely members of a Huntsmen Academy.

    Simin Megistus 

Simin Megistus

"Relax! I had to deal with three patrols of these guys!"
The team leader of SLVR. His weapon of choice is a Synchronized Dust Projection Jacket (SDPJ), "Kore Kosmou," which lets him create different elemental weapons.
  • Badass Normal: He's the only member of his team that doesn't have a semblance (yet).
  • BFS: When using Fire Dust, he uses a giant flaming greatsword that can also explode.
  • Blow You Away: One of the weapons he can make with Kore Kosmou is a lance made of wind. When he uses it in his debut trailer, it creates a giant tornado that sucks up all the nearby White Fang and hurls them around in the air before they all start falling back down to the ground.
  • Close-Range Combatant: So far, Simin seems only to choose to create melee weapons with his jacket.
  • Experienced Protagonist: The Regalia Trailer implies that Team SLVR has been active for quite a while, as they're shown to be work quite well together unlike Team RWBY, which was newly formed at the start of the series.
  • Grin of Audacity: Flashes on right before he engages the White Fang after he snuck up on one of them and trapped them in a crate.
  • An Ice Person: Not to the same extent as Lysette, but with Ice Dust, he can make swords and shields out of ice. When he mixes it with Fire Dust, he can create an impromptu smokescreen (steamscreen?).
  • Impossibly Cool Clothes: His weapon is his jacket for Oum's sake!
  • The Leader: Of Team SLVR, naturally.
  • Leitmotif: "Alchemy."
  • Meaningful Name: "Megistus" is in reference to Hermes Trismegistus, the Greek name of the Egyptian god Thoth who was affiliated with many things such as wisdom, mathematics, writing, magic, and the moon, which ties into the SLVR's lunar theme.
  • Playing with Fire: Can make a flaming claymore with Fire Dust.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Along with Ragora and Vella, he's the Blue Oni to Lycan's Red Oni.

    Lycan Arcadia 

Lycan Arcadia

Voiced by: Brandon Yates

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lycan.jpg
"I'M GONNA SMASH YOUR STUPID FACES IN!"
A member of Team SLVR and the only Faunus on the team. His weapon of choice is the Wrist Holster Daggered Talons (WHDT) Razorbolt, which lets him fight either by using the knives by themselves or utilize them as claws.
  • Blood Knight: He's always eager for a fight, jumping headfirst into battle against the Grimm that occupy the city in the Linen Trailer. When he's about to face off against an Elite Mook Beowolf, he just grins and cracks his knuckles. His appearance with all of Team SLVR has him say the above quote while running down the mountain side and just tear apart every Armor he can get his hands on.
  • Close-Range Combatant: His knives serve to make him even deadlier in hand-to-hand combat and apart from being used as throwing weapons, they don't have any other long-range functions.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Up until he fought the Armor, he was practically ripping the Grimm to shreds like a wild animal, causing a few Beowolf to just say Screw This, I'm Outta Here!.
  • Experienced Protagonist: The Regalia Trailer shows that Team SLVR has been together for quite a while, unlike Team RWBY which was newly formed at the start of the series.
  • Expy: His semblance is a mix of Sun and Blake's fused together, as he can send them out to fight, though they go down in one hit. He can also infuse them with Dust for the extra advantage. He's also a bit of an expy of Wolverine, what with his wolf-like features, ferocity and Razorbolt's claw function bringing the titular X-Man to mind.
  • Grin of Audacity: Might as well be stuck to his face with how often he grins. He gives one when it looks like he's about to fight the Omega Beowolf, has another when he uses his semblance against the armor to turn the tide, and has another one in the Regalia Trailer when he comes smashing through a wall.
  • Knife Nut: When he's not using them as his Wolverine Claws, Lycan uses the knives separately. He also appears to have a large number of them, as he's discarded a few of them after killing some Grimm before switching to the claws.
  • Leitmotif: "King of Anything."
  • Little Bit Beastly: He's a wolf Faunus, who's traits are sharp teeth and his narrow pupils.
  • Meaningful Name: Lycan is double-meaning. In reference to his Faunus heritage, Lycan comes from the term "lycanthrope" — the term used for werewolves. It also refers to Lycaon, a king of the Greek nation Arcadia who, according to myths, killed his son and tried to feed his roasted remains to Zeus, the king of the gods, to test his divinity. As punishment, Zeus turned Lycaon and the rest of his children into wolves, becoming one of the first werewolves in ancient cultures.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The red oni to Team SLVR's blue oni. Based on the team's re-introduction in the Regalia Trailer, Lycan's shown to be the most eager for a fight, jumping headfirst into a dilapidated city infested by Grimm. There's also the line above that defines his status as a Blood Knight.
  • Wolverine Claws: When he isn't using the knives separately, Lycan has them inserted into his wrist holster and form into four-bladed claws that just rip through everything he can get his hands on. He even rips a Beowolf in half!

    Vella Moisia 

Vella Moisia

Voiced by: Jasmine Moran

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/vella.jpg
"Sorry! I was pretty far away!"
A member of Team SLVR, and the group's resident sharpshooter. Her weapon of choice is a Bladed Compound Sniper Bow (BCSB) called Chatareus.
  • Action Girl: Along with Ragora, who are the female members of SLVR.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Averted. Unlike the rest of Team SLVR's Establishing Character Moment up until their encounters with their respective Big Bad, Vella is on even footing with the Sword-and-Shield androids and has to get a bit creative to defeat them.
  • Experienced Protagonist: The Regalia Trailer implies that Team SLVR has been active for quite a while, as they're shown to be work quite well together unlike Team RWBY, which was newly formed at the start of the series.
  • Friendly Sniper: She's a crack shot with her Chatareus, and can snipe Armors from several miles away. She's also rather close to the team, based on her conversations with them.
  • Great Bow: Chatareus doubles as both a rifle and a bow, which at full length is nearly as long as she is.
  • Meaningful Name: Vella's name is a reference to Vellamo, the Finnish goddess of the waters and wife of fellow sea god Ahti. She is known mainly for having a tall and beautiful stature, giving blessings to fishermen, wearing a blue dress made of sea foam, and possessing powers over the winds, storms, and waves. Fittingly, the place in which the Viridian Trailer takes place is a seemingly frozen ocean.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Along with Simin and Ragora, she's the blue oni to Lycan's red oni.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She has bright aqua-colored hair.

    Ragora Cinarum 

Ragora Cinarum

Voiced by: Morgan Berry

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ragora.jpg
"Hm... I'll consider it if you hand over the Radiant."
The last member of Team SLVR, as well as the first character to have voiced lines in the series. Her weapon of choice is a Arc Fire Shot Glaive (AFSG) called Hexentanz, which switches between a shotgun an battle ax form.
  • Action Girl: Possibly more so than Vella, thanks to her weapon and her apparent lone wolf tendency.
  • An Ax To Grind: Her weapon is a shotgun that can turn into a battle ax, which fires an arc-shaped buckshot for added destructive power upon impact.
  • Casting a Shadow: Her semblance appears to be this and even exudes a purple, shadowy aura while summoning.
  • Cool Hat: She's wearing a witch's hat atop her head, which definitely matches the motif she's going for.
  • Deadpan Snarker: She most certainly is.
    Ragora: It's here.
    Simin: You sure about that?
    Ragora: I don't know. How many ominous looking fortresses have you found?
  • Evil Laugh: As she charges at Lysette for their final standoff, Ragora can faintly be heard giving a wicked chuckle after merging with her summon.
  • Experienced Protagonist: The Regalia Trailer implies that Team SLVR has been active for quite a while, as they're shown to be work quite well together unlike Team RWBY, which was newly formed at the start of the series.
  • Leitmotif: "Witch Hunt."
  • Meaningful Name: Ragora Cinarum is a shortened derivative of the Mandragora Offcinarum, aka the purple-colored mandrake flower. It was used in witchcraft as a medium for spiritual familiars to reside in, due to the unique, man-shaped appearance of the root itself.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Along with Simin and Vella, she's the blue oni to Lycan's red oni.
  • Summon Magic: Her semblance summons a demonic head that fires energy blasts, though its preferred method is to try and take a giant bite out of you.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She has dark purple hair.

Pandora

A mysterious organization that comes into direct conflict with Team SLVR. They're in possession of an artifact called the Radiant, which SLVR is currently after.

    Brandon Charbonneau 

Brandon Charbonneau

Voiced by: Mark Zhang

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/brandons_faction.jpg
The first character created by Mark Zhang. His weapon of choice is a gun-sword called "Magnum Opus."
  • Ascended Extra: He was initially nothing more than a prototype character and wasn't referenced until the Linen Trailer, but that only involved the group he was shown with. It wasn't until the reveal of the Regalia Trailer that he was promoted to being an antagonist.
  • Bayonet Ya: The tip of the blade of the Magnus Opus serves as a bayonet in firearm mode.
  • Big Bad: He's implied to be this towards Team SLVR, since he's part of Pandora.
  • Cool Hat: Has a bowler hat that might be even cooler than Roman's.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: His introduction was this, full stop. In the whole fight, not a single enemy managed to land a hit on him. The only time Brandon looks serious is when he activates his semblance against the Stone Samurai.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Simin. Brandon is implied to be a key figure in Pandora, while Simin is the leader of his Team. Additionally, both characters' names reference alchemy — Nicholas Flamel, the creator of the Philosopher's Stone for Brandon and Hermes Trismegistus, the Greek name of Thoth for Simin.
  • The Leader: He's implied to be a key figure or perhaps even the leader of Pandora.
  • Meaningful Name: His name is in reference to Nicholas Flamel, the creator of the Philosopher's Stone.
  • Playing with Fire: His semblances heats up anything he touches. With Magnum Opus, he can heat up the blade to allow him to cut through things more easily (and as a side effect make them break down into ashes after they've been cut) or increase the firepower of its bullets.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: He's dressed in black and red clothing, and he's one of the antagonists.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: He has orange-red eyes, and he easily trounced all of his opponents. Unlike Team SLVR, who were shown to be struggling with their respective foes, Brandon never so much as allowed the Jade Ninjas or the Stone Samurai to touch him.
  • The Unseen: He hasn't reappeared since his introduction in the Charcoal Trailer, though the Linen Trailer, which introduced the Armors properly, helped solidify his status as an Ascended Extra. It's also implied at the end of the Regalia Trailer that he would have shown his face to Team SLVR as an aircraft similar to the one in Charcoal landed in front of them and opened its door.

    Lysette Atratus 

Lysette Attratus

Voiced by: Shane Stovall

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lysette.jpg
"Well then. I hate to rain on your parade, but this is the end of the line for you!"
A member of the mysterious organization Pandora. Her weapon is a sword and shield that has yet to be named.
  • An Ice Person: Her semblance, in contrast to Brandon's, causes the temperature of anything she touches to drop. When combined with Ice Dust, she can create ice constructs such as a platform that launches her into the air, a shield to defend herself and so on. She even uses it to freeze Ragora solid.
  • Animal Motif: Her hair style is reminiscent to a swan, fitting given how her surname references the black swan.
  • Blade Below the Shoulder: Her main weapon is a long blade that extends from her right bracer (that's somehow at least three times the length of it).
  • Expy: Of Winter Schnee. In terms of physical appearance, Lysette could almost be mistaken for a Schnee herself, and she's dressed in military garb and a competent combatant.
  • Light Is Not Good: She has a white color scheme, and she is most definitely not an ally to Team SLVR.
  • Meaningful Name: Lysette comes from the Danish term Lyset, meaning "The Light", while her surname, Atratus refers to the Cygnus Atratus, the black swan. It's also implied that Lysette may or may not be based off of the Denmark fairy tale "The Ugly Duckling," given her swan motif.

    Armor 

Armors

Voiced by: Brandon Yates

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ashen_swordsman.png
Autonomous machine knights that serve as the primary force of Pandora. They were first seen at the end of the Charcoal Trailer in a still-shot, and made their official appearance in the Linen and Regalia trailers. They are commonly armed with swords and shields.
  • Bait-and-Switch: In the Linen Trailer, Lycan prepares to face off against a souped-up Beowolf, only for a Grimm-controlled Armor to kill it and engage him.
  • Cannon Fodder: They have large numbers, sure, but they're all easily taken out by Team SLVR. If anything, they try to employ Zerg Rush tactics or try to wear their opponents down.
  • Degraded Boss: Justified. The one seen in the Linen trailer is a pretty hard fight, but that's because its being controlled by a possession Grimm. The ones seen later in the Regalia trailer are killed in droves.
  • Dual Wielding: The Armors typically use a sword and shield, but they are known to use two swords at once.
  • Elite Mook: The Armor that Lycan fights in the ruined city is noticeably stronger than the ones Team SLVR fight at the fortress Pandora is occupying. This is primarily due to the fact that the Armor has been Hijacked by Ganon, courtesy of a possession-type Grimm.
  • Faceless Mooks: Up to Eleven, since they're all machines and therefore don't technically have a face.
  • Hijacked by Ganon: In the Linen Trailer, an Armor was taken over by a possession-type Grimm, turning it into an Elite Mook that put up one hell of a fight with Lycan.
  • Mecha-Mooks: The Armors are all machines, designed to look like knights. Their voices are also synthetic to further drive the point home.
  • Shields Are Useless: The shields they have must be made of some shoddy materials or something, because they keep getting sliced through.

Others

Antagonists that are otherwise unaffiliated with Pandora, with a few even originating from the canon RWBY series.

    Jade Ninjas 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jade_ninjas___swords.png
One of the two antagonist groups of the Charcoal Trailer. They were in possession of some sort of cargo that Brandon was after, leading to their eventual assault.
  • Ambiguous Situation: It's unknown exactly what it's inside that container, but it's important enough for Brandon, and by extension Pandora, to attack the Jade Ninjas.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Compared to the Stone Samurai that appeared shortly after they retreated, Brandon had absolutely no trouble dealing with them.
  • Faceless Mooks: Each and every one of them covers their faces with a scarf and sunglasses and bandana.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: When it becomes clear that Brandon is more than they can handle, they all flee and leave behind their cargo.

    Stone Samurai 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/stone_samurai.png
A group of machines all wearing gold masks and wielding spears in the Charcoal Trailer, appearing after the Jade Ninjas retreat. They attack Brandon as he's about to secure the cargo.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: They don't fair much better than the Jade Ninjas. At best, they only made Brandon take them a bit more seriously by having him activate his semblance.
  • Cyber Cyclops: They seem to have only one eye.
  • Half the Man He Used to Be: Quite a few these poor guys are separated from their legs.
  • Off with His Head!: Brandon decapitates more than a few of them.
  • Robot Soldier: They're all mechanical. They're slightly more competent than the Jade Ninjas, as they do manage to make Brandon use his semblance, but they still couldn't land a hit on him.

    Sword and Shield Androids 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sword_and_shield_droids.png
Twin machines, one wielding a sword, and the other a shield. They appear serve as the Big Bad(s) of the Viridian Trailer.
  • Action Duo: Unlike the other initial enemies the other members of Team SLVR faces before the Big Bad shows up, these guys are considerably powerful and have impressive synergy with each other.
  • An Arm and a Leg: When Vella gets the upper hand, she slices an arm off of each droid before proceeding to deliver the final blow.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Averted. They're able to fight with Vella on equal footing, though this does make sense since they're the only antagonists in the Viridian Trailer, whereas the other trailers had Cannon Fodder for each member of SLVR to take on before the Big Bad showed up.
  • Katanas Are Just Better: The Sword droid uses a katana that's as long as it is.
  • Off with His Head!: Well, more look shoot it off. After Vella manages to take out an arm off of the Shield droid, she proceeds to shoot in rapid-fire and force the droid back into a frozen wave, corner it, then shoot at its neck until the head pops off. For added measure, she slices the body down the middle in case it gets up.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: The Shield droid is completely black and has a red visor.
  • Robot Soldier: Their appearance kind of gives it away.
  • Shields Are Useless: Averted. Unlike the shields used by the Armors, the Shield droid's is rather sturdy, and it doubles as a weapon.

    Beowolf Grimm 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/beo1.png
A Creature of Grimm, and one of the most common ones in the early Volumes of RWBY. They appear in the Linen Trailer, occupying a dilapidated city that Lycan is investigating.
  • Bait-and-Switch: After Lycan kills all the Grimm in the area, a larger Beowolf bursts through the wall, heavily armored and with giant spikes coming out from its arms and seemingly ready to take him on...aaand then a sword's run through its head and dies instantly, revealing an Armor.
  • Canon Immigrant: Alongside the White Fang, they're the only RWBY elements in SLVR.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Despite having overwhelming numbers, Lycan absolutely wrecks them. Especially when he busts out with the claws. Not often you see a Grimm start to shit themselves.
  • Elite Mook:
    • An albino Beowolf appears to engage Lycan. It's actually a Canon Foreigner from the early version of RWBY: Grimm Eclipse back when it was still just a fan game, serving as a more powerful version of the typical angry dog.
    • A "Omega Beowolf" busts through a wall after Lycan dispatches the last of the Grimm in the area, far bigger than the others and heavily armored. Sadly, it gets killed off rather quick by an Armor, which serves as the Final Boss of the Linen Trailer.
  • Hellhound: They're the closest thing you can get to one, anyway.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: When Lycan goes apeshit after the albino Beowolf gets a good hit on his face and busts out with the claws, he zeroes in on his target. When we see things from his point of view, some of the Grimm are turning tail and trying to escape.

    The White Fang 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/v3_09_00133.png
A former protest group turned terrorist organization, they are comprised entirely of Faunus. They served as early antagonists in RWBY and for Blake in her character arc of Volumes 4 and 5, and are the antagonists of the Silver Trailer.
  • Blow You Away: Simin dispatches them with a lance made from Wind Dust, which essentially slams into the leader of the group and then creates a tornado that sucks them in and hurls them around before they all fall back down on the ground in motionless heaps.
  • Canon Immigrant: Alongside the Beowolf Grimm, they are the only RWBY elements to appear in SLVR.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Simin kicks their ass something fierce until the Lieutenant Expy comes in.
  • Expy: The Sergeant of the Silver Trailer looks quite a bit like the White Fang Lieutenant from Volume 2, only he lacks the tattoos on his arm and wields a giant drill rather than a chainsaw sword.
  • Your Terrorists Are Our Freedom Fighters: They see themselves as the ones who will bring liberty to all Faunus kind. To everyone else, however, they're a bunch of anarchists.
