Ruby Rose (Red Rose or simply Red) is the main titular protagonist of the anime web series RWBY. She made her first video game appearance in RWBY Grimm Eclipse and makes her first fighting game appearance in BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle as a playable character and as one of the four main characters.
A Huntress in training, she was raised on heroic stories told to her by her late mother Summer and dreamed of being a great Huntress just like her to help others in need. Trained to wield her custom made weapon Crescent Rose thanks to her uncle Qrow, her skills with the weapon allowed her to foil a robbery, which impressed Professor Ozpin; she was subsequently allowed to transfer early into his school, the prestigious Beacon Academy, to continue her training. To help hone her potential, Ozpin placed Ruby in a team alongside her older half-sister Yang Xiao Long, heiress Weiss Schnee and the Faunus Blake Belladonna, forming Team RWBY.
Using her Aura, Ruby can tap into her Semblance of Speed, allowing her to dash and move around at speeds faster than the eye can see. She also wields a hybrid weapon she personally made called the Crescent Rose, which can take the form of a scythe, or an anti-armor sniper rifle which can fire bullets infused with multiple Dust elements.
