    I think Qrow isn't actually an alcoholic. I think he plays it up to make his enemies take him less seriously. As for him not explaining his Semblance, that's just an excuse so the audience can hear it. And as for humanly phoning enough, I think that's because of enemies who may be listening in.

    You make a lot of assumptions and excuses in your theories regarding Qrow's behavior.

    I do, but I think they are fair assumptions to make given his situation. Just so you know, I have my own history with alcoholic relatives that would make me if anything less tolerant of that kind of thing, so I'm not being overly generous. I'm just not seeing the type of scumbag behaviour I'd expect. He gets along well with Ruby and Yang, he has a working relationship with Taiyang, he hasn't been shown to be impaired by his alcoholism in his duties or personal life, hence I think it's largely for show.

    Maybe he feels responsible for what happened to her, and a way to try and mend things is to look 

    after Ruby. Maybe he was the last person to see Summer alive, and made a promise to her.

    Or maybe he just has such a high alcohol tolerance that he cant be intoxicated

    But your theory about him faking it could be correct.. see here Ralph Dibney in 52.

    Like not so much faking it, just playing it up.

    I think it would such being a bad luck charm would be bad for a kid and if Ruby knew I think she would be disparate to be with him.

    But I don't think that Qrow is Ruby's father. I think he has a secret to tell us but not that

    She doesn't seem chomping at the bit to be with Taiyang does she?

    Not even Vása the Heart of Fire can keep the bots away. That would need the work of Eru Ilúvatar himself.

    Well, I've got the DVD and I've watched Volume 4 as a 'movie' a couple of times now.


    My reaction is that Volume 4 is actually a lot better than it felt watching the episodes individually via the web. Watching each episode individually, particularly with the gaps between the release of each episode, made the volume feel awkward and slow. And I didn't like the separation of the characters.


    Watching the entire volume in one sitting, as a 'movie' rather than episodically, made the volume feel a lot faster and more coherent. Although there's still a sense of the volume as filler or prelude, I am now very much looking forward to Volume 5.

    Do you remember Glinda dismissing Winter's complaint with "he's always drunk"? I feel like its a well known fact that he's a drunk. Ozpin and Ironwood didn't object to the statement and the scene indicated that Qrow is known for being an alcoholic. Also, he didn't act drunk at all when fighting Tyrian. Badass, cocky but not drunk.

    Like I said, he is a drunk, he just plays up how drunk he is.

    Maybe he's related to Rick Sanchez?


    I do recall a theory that he uses his alcohol to somehow diminish/suppress his Semblance, but that seems a bit far-fetched. If that were the case spiking a Huntsman's drink would seriously impair their performance, and you'd think someone would have mentioned it by now. And there's no reason why it'd work on just him specifically, so it can't be a unique trait of Qrow alone.

    I would just suggest going to the V5 thread since most people are migrating there. Also the RWBY discussion thread since that place is dead and needs new blood.

    THis is ONE of a few places to do that... since it's been awhile from your last inquery,.. have you hit up ALL the groups? these threads are for brute opinions and the sort. Check out RDDT and RWBY as well as RWBY CIT.
