      @normalguycap You obviously arent aware of the symbolisim that farytails have in RWBY, also the fact that this farytail is KEY to what Cinder is doing. Or dose 'the fall maiden' just seem like a random name? The four maidens are in actual fact VERY real, surely you've watched 'Begining of the End' before watching this video? The young woman Cinder and her minions were attacking? Need I say more?

      The problem is that this is allegedly crucial information given far too late in the series. It's dues ex machinae level of bad presentation. Like "Oops, we have to shoehorn this in somewhere because we couldn't work it into the narrative naturally."


      It's poor planning and poor writing. The actual question is if this was Monty's vision or if RT did their own thing. No good novel or movie or tv show has ever put information like this in fucking season 3 of a thing. If they have it at all, they have it at the beginning. This is artificial expansion than a natural revelation.

      If that is the case then Ruby or Summer couldn't have been the winter maiden at any point because they could have only gotten the power after the current Winter Maiden died. Unless people can become Grimm after death but that is just going into zombie nonsense, and I hope they don't do that!!!

    So I'm just speculating here, but Amber would probably be thinking a lot of Emerald in her coma so what if Cinder killed Autumn and the rest of the powers went to Emerald. That would probably lead to a huge battle between Cinder and Emerald where Cinder wanted the powers and Emerald just wants to stay alive. That would be so cool, but again, im just speculating

    I've said it once I'll say it again and again. The 4 maidens have powers that do not require dust. Fine. But, who is this wizard that already had the power to GRANT them their abilities? Think about it. If he granted them their powers, then that would imply that he himself had powers that not only didn't require dust, but were greater than the 4 themselves. Could he have been the original person to first master/harness dust?


    HEADS UP - I don't mean to sound preachy and don't usually try to bring religion into series like this, but...

    I get a serious Jesus vibe from this situation. Like the old wizard fits the Messiah character archetype of RWBY, and the 4 maidens are his apostles/disciples that he bestowed great power upon them in order to spread their hope and kindness to the world (Holy Spirit). Furthermore, the fact that the powers transfer and get passed down is a further testament to that (the lineage of Popes).


    Moving on...

    As for the Wizard's own legacy beyond the Maidens' powers. Everyone suspects that Ozpin actually IS him. I know there's definitely a connection, but I don't think it'd be that simple. Ozpin is (from what we know so far) the head of the secret group that knows/protects the secrets of the 4 Maidens. The Wizard had supposedly lived for centuries in that house by himself before the maidens showed up, so it is entirely possible that Ozpin and the Wizard could be the same person, but again I think he will be one of his more direct descendants VS him being the actual original wizard.


    Lastly, I'm just going to say it: YES at least one of team RWBY is going to become a maiden at one point (if they haven't already.... Summer.) But I don't believe that they should ALL 4 of them become the Maidens. Reasons include:

    1- Something very bad will happen to Pyhrra for one of them to become the Fall Maiden (death, insanity, or both)

    2- It would be WAY too easy and predictable to have that sort of an outcome.

    3- If they became the 4 Maidens, they'd become the most powerful characters in the series. Nothing makes a story boring like an overpowered team of protagonists that can easily defeat any threat.

      Yeah, American term for Autumn... Rather silly to me, they should have used Autumn, since it is internationally recognized, while America calls it Fall, as in the leaves falling. RWBY has fans all over the world, and is currently got a Japanese translation going.

  • Lockjaw664

    Ozpin is the wizard, it flows with the Wizard of Oz theme and even though he gave up his magic to the four maidens, that doesn't necessarily say that he isn't immortal anymore. The whole concept of magic withing RWBY has gone pretty much untouched. We've never really had an exposition on how dust works and only know that it's used to fight back against the Grimm who plagued humanity before dust was discovered.

  • Hellspawn15

    I hate to diss the theories, but Ozpin explained two things. In the WOR and episode. 1st, he said the story was older than him. And the story says that the wizard gave up all his power. This means he wouldn't be able to live forever anymore. Now he could live for a while, but eventually would've faded away. It would be awesome if Ozpin was the wizzard, but the facts, sadly, don't line up. Rooster Teeth has been very good with avoiding inconsistencies. Excluding Red vs Blue, since the story is all about randomnees

    • Hellspawn15

      I have other explanations for why the wizzard of Oz theory isn't accurate. But if anyone has sustainable stuffs to back it up, I would love to hear about it. Sincerely. I like debates. I will ignore any retarded bullshit, though.

    • ImWaterBowser

      1 year ago

      I would like to counter argue this. When they first brought up the four maiden story. I posted immediately that Ozpin can very well be the wizard. In season 1 when Ruby doesn't have faith in herself to be the leader of team RWBY. Ruby asks and insists that Ozpin has made a mistake. He replies and I quote "Ruby. I've made more mistakes than any man, woman, and child on this planet. But at this moment I would not consider your appointment to leader to be one of them. Do you?"

      While in the same point Weiss continues to go and talk to Professor Port and he also says something very intriguing. " I've believed in Professor Ozpin for many years, and the man's never once led me astray! "

      None of these characters especially Ozpin seem to speak in riddles but very responsive and up front. Ozpin tends not to beat around the bush but give direct and affirmative responses.

    The four maidens are RWBY team for the obvious reason. Winter is Weiss, Summer is Ruby, Spring is Yang and Fall is Blake. The personalities of the 4 maidens match perfectly with them. Also, there are other hints. Weiss uses ice magic, and her summon magic requires concentration of some sort so at some point, she will archive true tranquility. to Yang name means "Light", which is what the Spring brings when the winter is over, the day gets longer. Ruby is summer because besides of her red color, she always believes in people. She was the one who encourage people to be good and to be happy, just like how the summer maiden did to the old man. And the Fall maiden is Blake, notice the claw mark she has on her shirt in this video. Her personality and wisdom is perfectly matched with Blake.

    • Timbo33

      1 year ago

      Well......yeah. Its the most pragmatic view(I hope that all the Maidens are unknown individuals and not the protagonists). However ...I believe you have the 2 mixed up. Ruby would be Spring- Spring is innocence, youth, a new beginning. Yang is Summer - Hot , feisty and festive. The other 2 are the defacto default.(remember though.....these powers can go to any one except a man or old crone. The similarities really mean nothing).


      As I stated in another post.....If they are to be the Maidens.....It should be at the end of the series. Putting them into that position this early on would derail the story.....They haven't earned yet.

      Sorry I'm rambling a bit, I tend to do that. And I would LOVE to see more stuff in the store, other than shirts and posters that is. Shirts and posters are great, it's just I don't have any free wall space and I have a uniform at school so I can't show off any shirts.

    I had a thought: what if that list Cinder was putting together in Volume 2 was a list of potential Maidens? She knows that they're keeping Amber somewhere in Beacon and obviously wants the rest of the Maiden's powers, but also knows that the headmasters may pass on the powers somehow to another girl. Hence the list so she'll know the best candidate for the Maiden and then can take them out efficiently.

    Either that, or it's just a list of all the Hunters'/Huntress' Semblances so she can counter them.

    4 maiden theory:Ruby,Penny,Pyrrha,and Emerald. Here is why:the maidens must constantly travel,the magic could 'possibly' make penny a real girl, emerald wasnt really feeling the fight against the fall maiden,and they each have their own support groups that would look out for them. also red like roses part 2:the mom's verses hint that she is dead and ruby was her last thought thus passing the power on to her

      Here is why:the maidens must constantly travel ------Huh? nothing states that the maidens "must always travel"


      the magic could 'possibly' make penny a real girl -----Possible if they bring Penny back - would fit the Pinocchio persona.


      emerald wasnt really feeling the fight against the fall maiden -------Emerald got her butt handed to her along with Merc and Cinder.....All 3 eventually over powered Amber(FALL). Yeah 3 against 1....the 1 usually looses.


      each have their own support groups that would look out for them------has nothing to do with anything. Amber was alone when she go ambushed. Crow was late to the party to rescue her....hence her condition at this point.


      also red like roses part 2:the mom's verses hint that she is dead and ruby was her last thought thus passing the power on to her ------ Who said Summer Rose is a maiden? Conjecture. If she is an actually maiden then Ruby per your statement would already have those powers and know it. The lyrics reflect the last thoughts of a parent for child and the irony of the consequences for the child based on the mothers actions.

    • CeruleanSorbeltz

      I don't know what you're talking about with Emerald, she was more emotionally vested in that than either of the other two, judging by her facial expressions throughout. Though, her eyes allow her to naturally be more expressive than either of her two partners, so that might be a slight over exaggeration... But to me, it looked like she was determined, and then angry. Yeah, she seemed slightly upset at the beginning, when she was making Amber hallucinate and see toddler!Emerald, but I figured that was more a product of remembering her life before Cinder than actual regret.

    This was a nice cute back ground story. Gives a more in depth perspective of the maidens than Ozpin's original telling of the tale. I like it.

  • GameForceV FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

    1 year ago

    Everyone is talking about how X Maiden has Y power and how A girl will get B Maiden's power, etc., etc.. None of you seemed to have noticed that Amber used fire, ice, wind, and lightning in her fight against Cinder and that she was only the Fall Maiden. It would be logical to assume that each of the Four Maidens possesses the same powers rather than each having an element to their own.


    I believe the little demonstration they all did after receiving said powers from the old wizard was done the way it was to fit the artistic style of the video, making each Maiden's demonstration match her design.

    • Renwod

      1 year ago

      You are close, but I think you might have actually missed something.
      If you notice, in this video, the Spring Maiden uses her powers to produce a flower. This is something completely unrelated to ANYTHING we saw Amber doing.
      The way I see it, the 4 maidens are loosely tied to the 4 alchemical elements, fire, water, earth, and air. Winter is water, Spring is earth, Summer is fire, and Fall is air. Lightning is typically a power associated with the element of Air, while plants/growth are frequently associated with the earth element.
      Using this as a starting point, it seems very blatant to me that Amber had a mastery and reliance over air, and was capable of using fire and water/ice to augment and bolster her attacks. However, she attacks first and foremost w/ wind+air, as if by reflex, and when powering up she clearly causes more aerial disturbances than anything else (even to the point of creating a lightning storm).
      Now, compare this to the cycle of the seasons, and you have what I believe you will find to be a more accurate method of predicting a maiden's full powers. The Fall maiden masters the Air element and dabbles in Fire (Summer's element, the season preceding Fall) and Water/Ice (Winter's element, the season following Fall). If you imagine the seasons on a wheel, then the Fall maiden lacks the powers of the opposite season (Spring's control of earth). I'm very much willing to predict this is the template for all of the maidens.

    • Hellspawn15

      1 year ago

      I believe you to be right to a degree. Their powers over elements would be seasonal. Like winter would have more than ice, but still seasonal related. Each season is based on certain elements. But I don't think Amber activated all of her powers. Just the basic stuff

      Totally agree on that point. I want to see Ruby be forced to mature a bit and bring out the full potential of using a scythe with a speed semblance. The sheer devastation and death she would be capable of dealing out would be terrifying. But on the other hand Don't hurt Ruby she's too adorkable.

    • TheRedWhale FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      1 year ago

      I know I'm late to the party, commenting on a video two months old, but I had to get my thoughts on this. Scythes weren't really weapons and, as weapons, are pretty ineffective against any form of real, actual weapon to begin with. They were used, however, to cutting wheat during harvest time. Around autumn/fall time. So, actually, her using a scythe may very well be a hint at which maiden she may end up being, if she is one.

      Not to say that your version isn't cool, but I think the opposite is equally cool as well.

  • edgarthe12th FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

    So it seems very likely that Summer Rose is, or was a maiden and that Ozpin is the wizard in this story. What if Summer Rose actually did die though? Maybe the immense power that the wizard gave them puts a strain on the maiden's body. If Ruby's mom actually is dead, maybe she passed on her power to Raven, and entrusted Ruby and Yang's safety to her.


    The promise mentioned at the end of the story also intrigues me. If Ozpin was the wizard in the story then that would explain why they were nursing Amber at beacon and why Qrow was guarding her. She was on her way to beacon to meet up with Ozpin. Perhaps Raven, and possibly Summer will make an appearance at the academy soon.



    Of course there is always the option of me being an idiot and looking too far into things.

    The latter seems quite likely.
