Ozpin and Glynda and Example of trained Aura Users


Are humans who inhabit the Dust World/Remnant that have unlocked their Aura. Aura is manifestation of the soul and powers their Semblances and Skilled users of Aura can create their own barriers or even increase their own abilities in some way. Weapons and armor can also act as a conduit for Aura, allowing for an even wider range of offensive and defensive capabilities. This even applies to non-traditional "weapons", such as a loaf of bread or a leek as seen with Food Fight between Team RWBY and Team JNPR.


One thing is that most of them are known to colour theme in their name. This tradition began during the Great War when one side tried to suppress or forbid the freedom of self-expression. Those who opposed them defied this by naming their children, began naming their children after a fundamental aspect of art - color. This symbolic gesture demonstrated that neither they nor the generations to come would tolerate such oppression. After the war the side the defied it won and the tradition has continued ever since.

Another thing that most Aura Users have is an Emblem that acts that are used to represent a person and can be compared to personal signatures. They are commonly found adorning weapons and armour but have also appeared on clothing, personal equipment, and even as tattoos.
