Born to Taiyang Xiao Long and Summer Rose (Who passed shortly after), Ruby grew up in Patch, outside Vale, where she spent her childhood training with her uncle and father at Signal and playing with her half-sister, Yang. She is a positive and friendly girl and is very skilled with her scythe, Crescent Rose. After a night stopping a robbery, she was accepted into Beacon Academy at age 15, where she became the leader of her team to train to be huntresses. After the Fall of Beacon, she discovered she possessed the power of the legendary Silver-Eyed warriors and traveled to Mistral with team JN(P)R. Following their triumph at Haven, Ruby and the rest of her allies have been moving towards Atlas to keep the Relic of Knowledge safe, only for her to discover newer revelations about her Silver Eyes and their power.

    • Stated by Salem that her Silver Eyes is a crippling weakness to the Maidens' power for the users
