There's too much wrong in this world to just stand by and do nothing. Inequality, corruption... Someone has to stop it.
~ Blake Belladonna

Blake Volume 4 Render.png
Humans didn't do this. We did this. Faunus. We did this to ourselves. We're just as capable of hate and violence as the humans but I don't think any of us would jump at the chance to point that out. So why are we letting Adam do it for us? By doing nothing and staying silent, we let others speak and act in our place. And if we're not proud of the choices they make, then we have no one to blame but ourselves!
~ Blake, to the Faunus of Menagerie

Blake Volume 7 Amity Arena.png


Blake Belladonna is one of the main characters and the third character introduced in RWBY. A young woman with long black hair, amber-colored eyes and a black ribbon resembling animal ears on her head, she wields the Gambol Shroud, a katana with a sharpened sheath that has a pistol in the hilt attached to a long ribbon which she uses in the style of kusarigama. In battle, her Semblance allows her to create a shadow of herself, an empty copy that distracts or takes hits from enemies for her while she moves in a different direction. Blake has a quiet nature and a love for books. She is a Faunus (a persecuted humanoid race with animal-like features) and a former member of the White Fang, a social rights advocacy group turned extremist paramilitary organization. However, she left in disgust of their violence and joined Beacon Academy to become a Huntress. Blake keeps her Faunus identity a secret by concealing her cat ears because she feels that she is not ready for the attention it would give her if the secret got out and doesn't want the discrimination other Faunus receive from humanity.

Range: Extended melee range with the Gambol Shroud in katana mode. Several meters in chain form. Hundreds of meters in pistol mode and with Blade Beam.

Standard Equipment: Gambol Shroud, Dust Ammunition

Intelligence: Gifted (Having been a member of the White Fang at a young age, Blake is very skilled in multiple forms of combat, mostly using Gambol Shroud in slashing through hordes of enemies with startling speed and deflecting incoming gunfire with the sword and sheathe alone, and is well adept using her weapon as a conduit for her Aura: generating shockwaves with her swings to augment her blows. She is skilled at using her weapon in gun and sickle mode to their fullest effect in tandem with her combat skills against multiple Grimm and White Fang members, as well as use her Semblance to trick her opponents, like she did against Roman Torchwick combining her Semblance with multiple Dust ammunition and pinned him down. Due to her former status as a White Fang member, she is also skilled in assassination, espionage and trickery on various missions. She also extensive book knowledge from her reading and studying. After the Fall of Beacon, Blake has developed leadership skills, inspiring the Faunus in Menagerie to stand against Adam.)

Weaknesses: Continual use of her Aura will cause it to decay to the point where she can be left open to more significant damage. Aura's durability is cumulative; it will deplete with each attack she takes and can be brought down by characters of similar strength. Semblances drain aura by a small amount and without aura they cannot be used until the user's aura is recharged. Constant exposure to extreme temperature can drain the user's aura.

Notable Attacks/Techniques:

Gambol shroud sheath by pokinee-d8gz2bn.png
  • Gambol Shroud: Blake's weapon is the Gambol Shroud, a set of two swords consisting of a katana, used as a primary sword, and a large cleaver, which is used as a sheathe. The essence of the two weapon components is that they fit together as one, but come apart to be two, so that they are compact for easier carrying. The katana also has a compact, striker fired pistol built into its hilt, allowing it to be used as a ranged weapon or for the recoil to be used to swing or anchor the blade. When in pistol form, Blake wraps a black ribbon tied to her right arm around Gambol Shroud's trigger, allowing her to freely swing it around in a way similar to a kusarigama. In this form, her fighting style is somewhat similar to that of Ruby Rose, as both girls use the recoil from the firearm to increase the velocity of their weapon. The ribbon has been shown to be very strong, durable and elastic, as it has been reliably used as both a slingshot and a grappling hook. However, at the end of Volume 6, it was destroyed by Adam Taurus.
    • Dust Abilities: Specialized Dust cartridges can be inserted into Gambol Shroud to modify the effects of her bullets, giving them elemental properties based on the type of Dust being used. This Dust can also alter Blake's Semblance, changing her Shadows into more than just mere afterimages, in a manner not dissimilar to Weiss Schnee's weapon, Myrtenaster. The form her Shadows take on depends on the element of Blake's choosing, significantly increasing her Semblance's tactical applications.
      • Fire Dust: Changes Blake's Shadow into a fire bomb that explodes violently when it detonates, damaging enemies.
      • Earth Dust: Changes Blake's Shadow into a stone statue, which can be used as cover and defense from attacks, or to create a small earthquake that knocks back and stuns enemies.
      • Ice Dust: Changes Blake's Shadow into an ice sculpture, which with correct timing can trap enemy weapons inside, or freeze them entirely if they are close enough.
      • Violet Dust: Changes Blake's Shadow into a dark haze, lingering longer than her normal clones and blocking people's vision.
    • Shadow Strike: Blake dashes at the enemy, slashing them and creating clones that deal followup slashes, up to five times in a row.
    • Blade Beam: Blake launches a horizontal beam from her sword that passes through and stuns enemies. She can fire up to three of these beams from her sword simultaneously.
  • Shadow: Blake's Semblance allows her to create Shadow-clones. These clones can be used by Blake to either distract, shield, or hide herself from the enemy for a brief amount of time. These copies are not just illusions and have some substance to them, as Blake has demonstrated the ability to jump off of them and use them to exert force on herself as a means of reaching greater heights. It is unknown exactly how long a shadow copy can appear for or how far away from Blake they can exist. So far, they have only appeared in Blake's immediate area, normally right next to her.
