    YANG XIAO LONG
    I'm a thrill-seeker. I want to travel around the world and get wrapped up in as many crazy adventures as I can. And if I help people along the way, then that's even better. It's a win-win, y'know?

    Fandom: RWBY
    Age: 17
    Species: Human
    Gender: Female
    Canon Point: During the fall of Beacon Academy

    CHARACTER

    PersonalityYang has a firecracker personality. She is an adventurer and loves to explore and show life who's boss with an unrivaled confidence and determination. While this results in strong headedness at times, Yang can be reasoned with as long as the plan makes sense. She also often gets angry, using her anger during battle and when defending herself. That being said, she can still maintain a level head when trying to talk sense and reason into a friend. On a day to day basis, she's a pretty chill gal and easy to get along with. Being extroverted, Yang can be outgoing to strangers and make friends easily. Just don't be surprised if she jumps into things head first. She's also smart too, but can sometimes get carried away with her emotions.

    BackgroundYang grew up with her sister Ruby and her dad Taiyang on the planet Remnant, a magical world full of magic, semblances, and monsters. She never knew her mother and much mystery surrounds her. While Yang often tried searching for answers about her, she often fell short and eventually accepted that it wasn't worth consuming all of her time. Instead, she turned her sights to becoming a huntress, also known as a warrior that helps protect the realms of Remnant. She decides to attend Beacon Academy, a school that trains hunters and huntresses alike. She is joined by her sister Ruby and together they form team RWBY with Blake Belladonna and Wiess Shnee. The team grew together to become great friends and went on various adventures together fighting evil.

    They soon uncover a plot by Cinder and a group of faunas called the White Fang to through the world of Remnant into chaos. As they are exploring a lost city to find the truth, they attacked by monsters known as Grimm that feed off of negativity and fear. They also discover the White Fang and attempt to stop their exploits. Unfortunately, the battle resulted in Grimm being led to town and fear begins to rise. The Grimm attack is eventually contained, but political mistrust lingers.

    Beacon Academy then hosts a tournament, inviting students from other schools to compete and show their strength and to try and show control of the Grim situation. Team RWBY gets far into the competition and Yang is chosen to represent in the semi-finals. However, while fighting Mercury, a spell is cast by Emerald to make it appear that Yang breaks his leg in disorderly conduct when in actuality, Mercury attacked Yang, causing her to defend herself. The incident causes Yang and her team to be disqualified and people to become upset with the school. Events further take a turn for the worst when Penny is accidentally killed by Pyrrha due to a similar spell. This causes enough of an uproar that the Grimm attack, overtaking the area in a fury. Yang and her teammates work with the other students in the fight and try to retake the school, which has become overrun.

    During the fight, Blake is confronted by her former lover and the leader of the White Fang fraction group Adam. Yang happens to run into them and manages to intercept Adam's deadly blow. They are about to exchange blows when black tendrils arise and whisk the fiery fighter off to Pandora.

    Outfit(See above)
    A brown vest over a yellow tank top, black short shorts, belt, and brown combat boots. And, as always, she wears her gauntlets constantly. Her outfit is accompanied by an orange scarf.

    Quirks/Additional Notes
    • She becomes very angry if you touch her hair. So for your own sake, don't do it.
    • Since she has just been taken from the fight for her life, Yang experiences PTSD and can be reclusive as she over comes this.
    • Her skype username is Fireballin17.
    • She can ride a motorcycle and loves the badass feeling from it.



    COMBAT SKILLS & ABILITIES

    Without the use of her weapons or semblance, Yang is definitely the strongest of her team. She's capable of throwing a fully grown person several feet and even hold open the jaws of monsters many times her size. Her kicks are similarly as strong, though her main power resides in her upper body strength. That being said, her fighting style is to use punches and kicks to fight her enemies. She has training from her classes, her dad, and various experience fighting bad guys and monsters to make her a solid fighter. Often times she uses her anger in fights to increase her power and her aggressiveness.

    SPECIAL ABILITIES

    EquipmentYang's main weapon is her Ember Celica, which essentially are golden gauntlets that run up to her elbows. They can shoot explosives with a single punch for close range combat to slightly longer distances, though not past 50 meters away. Yang uses the power of her gauntlets to increase the strength of her punches and can even give her an additional boost during large leaps or flying through the air.

    During noncombat, the gauntlets retract into bracelets.

    SemblanceA semblance in the RWBY universe is a special ability that comes unique to every hunter or huntress. In Yang's case, her semblance is that whenever she is at the end of her rope, her strength and stamina significantly increases. She takes energy from her attacker and redirects it towards them with twice the power, making her able to withstand enemies much stronger than herself. If she's angry during a fight, her hair also appears to be lit on fire (though not literally).

    WEAKNESSES

    Aside from normal human weaknesses, Yang's weaknesses lie in her personality and less fighting experience. While she is a seasoned fighter, she often relies on her semblance to win fights rather than to use it as last resort, which can result in her burning out during a fight. On top of this, her semblance goes away if she is hit hard enough before it has reached peak. Her anger also causes her to not think as clearly and this can be taken advantage of by a more experienced fighter. Yang's fighting style also is less effective against more leg-based fighting styles.



    FREEFORM

    Finally it was her time. Yang had been dreaming about becoming a huntress ever since she'd heard the stories from her father. She could see herself in battle, standing triumphantly over a pile of badies as she punched her way to victory. And now that dream was becoming a reality with her acceptance letter in her hands. Barely able to contain her excitement, she punched the air and hurried inside to show her dad. Tai had been there for her since as long as she could remember. They had spent so many afternoons in heat and snow sparing and it had all paid off. Finally, all those mornings she could have spent sleeping in actually meant something.

    Her father smiled at her proudly, giving her his congratulations and the whole shpeal. Yang was barely listening before she was heading up the stairs to show her sister Ruby. Ruby was laying in bed reading a comic book when Yang burst through the door.

    "I got it!!" She shouted, waving the paper in the air.

    "Got what Yang?" Ruby replied, setting her comic to the side. As she thought, her eyes widened. "Wait, I know...YOU WERE ACCEPTED INTO BEACON WEREN'T YOU??"

    "You bet." Yang gave a head nod and a wink. Ruby let out a squeal of excitement and got up to hug her sister. "This girl is going to be a kick butt huntress in no time!"

    And indeed she was. Her sister too would be accepted but little did the two of them know the adventures that awaited them and the adversity that accompanied it.
