Saturn Laos, delivering a threat to Weiss.

The Shadow of Fire is an ongoing Fan Fiction by The Dagger of Faith about the magical world of RWBY by Rooster Teeth.

The story itself is a AU where Weiss is the main protagonist, and has a cast of various OC characters, including a few fan made or inspired OC's, along with many of the canon cast such as Blake and Velvet.


Warning: the list of examples below may contain unmarked spoilers.

This work contains examples of:

  • Anyone Can Die: Ruby does so. Several times. More permanent deaths involve veteran hunters.
  • Artificial Limbs: Ruby acquires one over the course of the story owing to her body being seriously burnt in the crash of Saturn's fleet.
  • Back from the Dead: Ruby and Weiss both have perished at points in the story. Thankfully Ruby's dad just so happens to be a god of the dead and can create... exceptions.
  • Darker and Edgier: Than mainstream RWBY- the main characters are subjected to far more trauma and insanity than expected.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: Yang and Ruby are the daughters of a human and who is essentially the lord of the afterlife itself.
    • In the Blood: They will also turn into gods at a certain age.
  • The Heavy: Saturn acts as this- he is the main visible villain, but there are others like Touko under his direct control, and he himself is only a mercenary for higher powers.
  • Advertisement:
  • Little Bit Beastly: Ruby is turned into this after exposure to dust.
  • Screw Destiny: Saturn's main threat is that he actually knows how to do this and can alter the natural progression of fate.
  • Our Gods Are Different: The main supernatural forces behind the events of the story.
