Winter Schnee

Weiss' biological older sister, who has returned from a long trip with an elite group of Huntresses.

  • Aloof Big Sister: At first, she seems like this, but then, it's revealed she's just plain Oblivious to Love and a bit naive.
  • Berserk Button: Has one. Do not hurt Rook. An unfortunate Nevermore pushes this button and gets its head ripped off.
  • Buxom Is Better: Certainly for out-competing Yang.
  • Cry Cute: Her reaction when she realises Jaune might actually end up with Pyrrha.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Considered more attractive than Yang. Yang is...jealous.
  • Implied Love Interest: Rook.
  • Nice Girl: About as nice as Pyrrha herself.
    • Beware the Nice Ones: As Russell finds out when he attempts to accost her and ends up with his pants set on fire. And when Rook gets hurt, she rips off a Grimm's head.
  • Not So Different: From Pyrrha, as it turns out. They're both affected by Attractiveness Isolation and are both Broken Aces, as well as having both fallen for Jaune for the same reason. Winter notes, to her chagrin, that the only difference is that she isn't Pyrrha.
  • Oblivious to Love: She doesn't seem to notice that half the Beacon student body considers her the most attractive girl on campus, over even Yang. Yang is.....somewhat miffed about being usurped.
    • She seems to have grown out of this by Volume 3, however.
  • Ojou: Is remarkably polite and kind, in contrast to her sister.
  • Playing with Fire / An Ice Person: Her Semblance of temperature control allows her to do both.
  • School Idol: Definitely.
  • Sheltered Aristocrat: Heavily implied to be this.
  • Ship Tease: With Jaune, Blake and Yang. Later on, she's teased with Rook.
  • Spoiled Sweet: Despite being one of the richest girls in Beacon, Winter is possibly one of the nicest characters in the whole Reactsverse.
  • Tranquil Fury: When she enters this, you know she's furious. Harming Rook will definitely put her into this.
  • Weak, but Skilled: Her Semblance of temperature control isn't too useful against the Grimm. Winter is incredibly good with her weapon to compensate.

Rook Leblanc

A new student who meets Winter during the Valentine's Day special.

  • Cowboy: His motif, right down to his accent and mannerisms.
  • Country Mouse: As a boy who mentions having lived with nomads in Vacuo until his Huntsman mentor took him to Vale.
  • Foil: To Jaune. Both are Nice Guys who have French names whose respective love interests are well-respected and skilled fighters who suffer from Attractiveness Isolation and even have similar motifs (the Knight in Shining Armor and the Cowboy). However, while Jaune is an Idiot Hero who relies on swordplay, Rook is a Guile Hero who relies on gunplay to fight.
  • The Gunslinger: The Trick Shot type. He specialises in making quick and precise shots with his revolver Magpie.
  • Improbable Aiming Skills: Is a better shot than even Pyrrha. Qrow even outright says that Rook is possibly one of the greatest shooters he's ever met.
  • Implied Love Interest: Winter.
  • Meaningful Name: Rooks are birds closely related to crows, and 'blanc' is French for white. Note his attire and note his motif again.
    • Rooks are related to crows. In the first chapter of the Mandatory Training Arc, Qrow is revealed to be the benefactor who sent him to Beacon in the first place.
  • Nice Guy: He's introduced by sitting with Winter because she looked lonely, for one.
  • Ravens and Crows: Also his motif alongside being a cowboy, just like his mentor.
  • Ship Tease: With Winter.
  • Trap Master: Is a skilled setter of traps, in part due to having to grow up on the frontiers of Vacuo.
  • Whip It Good: He owns a metal whip called Mustang.
    • Whip Sword He can even combine it with his revolver to create an improvised whipsword.

How well does it match the trope?
