The main protagonist of RWBY and Yang Xiao Long's younger half-sister. Ruby Rose always dreamed of becoming a Huntress like the great heroes talked about in fairy tails. After a chance incident, Headmaster Ozpin extends Ruby an invitation to attend Beacon academy after seeing her skills first hand. Ruby accepts the invitation and begins attending Beacon academy to begin her training to become a Huntress. Soon after, she became the leader of a newly formed team of Huntresses with Weiss Schnee, Blake Belladonna and Yang Xiao Long called Team RWBY.
Ruby Rose wields a weapon called the Crescent Rose, a weapon crafted by herself that's a hybrid between a scythe and a high caliber sniper rifle. The weapon is capable of transforming into a scythe or a sniper rifle, though it can fire bullets in either form. In the show, she also frequently made use of the recoil from firing bullets from Crescent Rose to propel her in different directions, giving her extra mobility and maneuverability.
All of this is adapted directly into Ruby's playstyle to create a very well rounded character. The Crescent Rose gives many normals that have great reach and hit in a wide arc, allowing her to fight up close very well. She has specials where she fires the Crescent Rose, giving her ranged options to fight from afar. And finally, her Gun Blast special allows her to propel herself forward, backward and at different angles in the air, giving her extra movement options in neutral.
Ruby's Semblance allows her to travel at unnaturally fast speeds and leave petals behind in the path she took. When combined with using gun blasts from her Crescent Rose, this gave her tremendous mobility and maneuverability in the show. Her semblance makes an appearance in BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle in specific normals, partner skills and distortion skills to help her perform attacks that cover long distances very quickly.
