Just for you, I will keep making this joke until the heat death of the universe.
That's a random question. While I find the image of Jaune as Sister of Battle amusing, the truth is no RWBY character belongs in any imperial army, as they would be instantly deemed heretics for their weird beliefs and executed if brought down. And since it's doubtful any xeno race would ever let them into their ranks, they would be left with only two real options: Tau Empire and Chaos. That or staying neutral in all that mess.
Given that Tau are in a pretty poor situation when it comes to manpower, they would gladly accept any powerful fighter willing to join them. Both team RWBY and JNPR could probably be persuaded to fight alongside Tau, even if they find some of the Empire's actions to be abhorent. I can definitely see them going with the lesser evil, especially if someone sells them an idealized image of Tau.
Ironwood and Winter wouldn't be persuaded by anyone easily, if at all. I can honestly see Ironwood going on his own and starting a rebellion on some imperial world, hoping to liberate it and establish his own force in the galaxy.
Jacques is the only character who I can see joining up with the Imperium, though probably not in a military fashion. The most Jacques-y thing for him to do in 40k universe would be to converse with some Rogue Trader and offer him some advice as to how perform business more efficiently.
Adam and Cinder would definitely fall to chaos, either out of desire for power or just so that thy can freely kill some people for fun. Emerald and Mercury, in spite of their loyalty to Cinder, would probably find that too much and bail out out of the entire thing. Maybe they could make criminal careers on some Hive World somewhere.
I don't think salem would willingly join Chaos. She doesn't seem like a religious type, or even that much power-hungry. She would probably just hang out somewhere quiet, like she did in her cottage all these millenia.
Upon seeing the mess that is 40k galaxy, Ozpin would try to join whoever seems like the best hope for improvement. It might be Tau Empire, but I can also see him cutting a deal with the Eldar. He probably wouldn't feel comfortable joining the Imperium of Man, unless he encountered some Reasonable Authority Figure who also wanted to improve things without going xenocidal.
Okay, given that the Character pages are essentially done, we've got two other issues we need to sort out before Volume 7 kicks off:
My personal thoughts on both points:
I'd say put Blake under Bi the Way, and Yang under Ambiguously Bi.
Also....only recently found out about the, direction they took that Carmine Charachter from the After the fall book Via the Complete Monster cleanup. I gotta say, of all the guesses for what her Charachter would have been like. "Child Trafficker" would have been my last guess.

Oh yeah. Actual issues.
1. The edit delay should be expanded to all pages save for recap ones, I believe. I probably will end up benefiting from that, since I'm not planning on watching the episodes as they're released, but it really seems like the best option.
2. I don't think it's fair to list Blake as Bi the Way but keep Yang as Ambiguously Bi. Just have them both be Ambiguously Bi and only change that once they actually kiss or something. Seems like the simplest solution.
Carmine is a rather crappy person. Was kind of surprised as well, but then again, it's not like being hot prevents you from being evil in RWBY setting.

So this video has helped make Bumblebee an easier pill to swallow. Namely going through the relationship based off the handful of pivotal scenes and showing how the relationship evolved with each moment.
I agree with Tharkun. Unless Blake is confirmed to also be into girls, troping her as Bi the Way rather than Ambiguously Bi is the wrong call. Put both as Ambiguously Bi.
You see, I would watch that and be happy someone is trying to analyze it.... but its mediacrity and his videos tend to annoy me.note Don't want to get into a whole debate, just know I feel he treats his personal opinions as fact, and the audio quality gives me an earache. There's also the fact its yet another video treating this as if it were canon when it still isn't, and I'm currently dreading the shit show that will happen if Volume 7 confirms it isn't and everyone starts throwing around "queerbaiting",note How I wish for the day where a persons sexuality wasn't seen as this big deal and people could be represented equally without there being so much issue or controversy. But then again, we're human, and we fucking suck. while equally dreading the ship wars that will ensue regardless of the outcome.note Next to Steven Universe and Star vs. the Forces of Evil, RWBY has one of the most vile shipping bases I've seen. Both on the Black Sun side and the Bumblebee side.
I thought she was just a human trafficker in general, not specifically kids. Seriously, she and her partner are scum, no doubt about that, but it does interest me they were hunting people with strong Semblances specifically. So either someone is making an army out of them, someone (read: Salem) wants to weaken Vacuo by eliminating potential malfactors, or someone is like Marcus as has All for One powers just with Semblances.

It's official. The hotter you are the more sinister you are.
See Cinder, Salem, Neo, and now Carmine for examples.
Eh... its all subjective, but to me Neo is more Cute But Psycho than hot, Cinder is only hot in the literal sense not the attractive sense, Salem seems meh, and I was never really fond of Carmine's design.
I could understand not being impressed by one of the four. Two out of four I'd say different strokes, different folks. Three I'd be like, okay, we might not agree but I'll defend your right to-
But all four that's... that's just... I'm at a loss for words. I feel faint.

They're all "hot"...even the 4th one with the "C" name.
@On Yang and Blake: Put 'em both as Ambiguously Bi and be done with it.
I never found Cinder sexy, to be honest. Prettily drawn, yeah, like any female character in this series. But hot? Only in the sense of her literal powers.
I certainly would "have use" for Cinder, Neo, and Raven doujins, so I guess I would qualify them as "hot".
Also Raven is the hottest character. Don't @ me.
"while equally dreading the ship wars that will ensue regardless of the outcome"
You will have to blame Adam dialogue, is hard not making a ship after your ex pretty much thinking they are.
I will said Salem is not "hot" but she is beautifull and have a sort of charm, what is hilarious for me she is a good example of "never stick your dick in evil".
So far for me RWBY are cute and maybe pretty but that it, Neo is the same as Emerald, Cinder can be hot but her personality and over the top manners pull me off, now Raven....yeah, she is hot.
Cinder is totes hot but Raven is defs mega hot
Yeah I can see why Taiyang would go for her.
I mean it wasnt a good choice but one can understand why he would do it, Taiyang should have stay with Qrow and nothing bad would happen.
Raven is definitely a case of anime mom, on that she looks just as young, if not even younger, than her daughter.
I would definitely call her "mommy".
So, she is the female version of Ironwood.
But all four that's... that's just... I'm at a loss for words. I feel faint.

Regarding the mediaocrity video:
His main point, aside from the standard "Adam was always an abusive ex!" crap I will not even comment on, is that Yang and Blake's relationship is based on the latters inability to see Yang as her equal and that their fight against Adam works as an conclusion of an arc because they resolve to protect one another. Thing is, while that explains some of the weirder lines in the show, it isn't what the story actually shows us. During their first encounter with Adam, Yang tries to protect Blake, fails, then Blake succeeds at protecting Yang. They've been protecting each other back then. They were also working together back during the Manticore fight, and during, well, every battle they fought together, I think. There were also the times Blake temporarily left Yang to do her own thing, such as during the train fight or during the Battle of Haven. All in all, if Blake thought that Yang was someone she needed to protect and not expect protection from, she did not act on that belief. They had been "protecting each other" for a while now, and when the protection was one-sided, it was because one of them was pinned down or unconcious. Other times it was non-existent. I can understand Yang being angry with Blake being an introvert or having weird ideas of what is good for her friends, but if she is angry that Blake is offering her too much protection or that she doesn't accept enough protection in return, she is angsting over nothing.
tl;dr While the author might be on point as to what CRWBY intended to do, he only talks about parts of the story that confirm his conclusion rather than the ones that run contrary to it.
Also, I love how he casually mentions that Blake's behavior didn't change from the start of the series. Arguing that there is a complex arc people don't notice while admitting there has been no development in character's behavior.
Regarding the sexiness factor:
I too find Cinder to be one of less attractive female characters in RWBY, probably due to the show's artistic style. The characters are so colorful and over-the-top, that Cinder with her mostly realistic proportions just seems sort of bland. The main characters have s sort of energy to them that makes them hotter than Cinder IMO.
Other evil females are better though. Salem might not appeal to me in her current form, but before her Grimm transformation and even right after she was pretty damn hot. Neo is great — though I rather dislike her current outfit — and Carmine is hot regarless of how dumb her literal Chainmail Bikini is. An of course, Emerald's hips don't lie.
Also, how can we talk about Evil Is Sexy without mentioning Adam? His handsomeness is probably his only consistent quality — he can even look good with horrific facial scarrings. I once assumed the reason he rose in the ranks of the White Fang was because of his martial prowess, but now that I think about it, Sienna probably just liked having him around for the looks.

I don't get why were debating who the hottest women is in RWBY
we all know the hottest is Maria
I'd put my vote for Jinn, it takes a lot of guts to wear your birthday suit in the middle of a winter wonderland.
I think RWBY characters are (to borrow someone else's words) generically cute/attractive. Have no real problems with their design, but it usually takes a certain artist to make them stick out to me (like with Oda).
hey young Maria is fine
