Weiss Schnee is a seventeen year-old huntress-in-training and one of the main protagonists of the animated series RWBY. Prior to the team's disbandment at the end of RWBY Volume 3, Weiss was a member of Team RWBY, a group consisting of her, Ruby Rose, Yang Xiao Long, and Blake Belladonna.
In battle, Weiss wields a Multi Action Dust Rapier known as Myrtenaster. Myrtenaster seems to act as a conduit for her Semblance of Glyphs, and uses her Semblance in conjunction with the vials of different Dusts. Her Semblance, which is said to be passed down to members of the Schnee family, is known as "Glyphs", which can be used in a variety of forms, such as to control motion, for propulsion, as solid platforms, or in various other ways.
Weiss Schnee is an heiress to the Schnee Dust Company, an Atlesian Dust mining company. She would likely succeed her elder sister, Winter Schnee, in this role.
