The first four World of Remnant episodes were released alongside Volume 2, narrated by Jen Taylor , the "mysterious narrator" in Volume 1's first episode who is later revealed to be the primary antagonist of the series, Salem. The eight episodes released alongside Volume 4 were narrated by Vic Mignogna , who voiced Qrow Branwen prior to the conclusion of Volume 6.
The narrator explains Huntsmen are considered Remnant's greatest warriors in large part by mastering Aura; a manifestation of the life force or soul that runs through every living being - save Grimm - but which only true warriors can amplify and control.
It is primarily used for defense, sheathing the wielder in a protective force field to help survive otherwise fatal blows - though their reserves deplete with each hit until exhausted, leaving them vulnerable.
Aura's second main use is by projecting it into a more tangible form known as a Semblance , providing a special power unique to each wielder such as superhuman strength or telekinesis. The narrator claims that, with enough training and focus, Aura can turn a warrior into far more than a simple man or woman. Ozpin tells the tale of the Four Maidens; An old wizard living in the woods sees a maiden, Winter, waiting outside in the snow for her sisters, falling asleep from the serenity she brings.
When he wakes, he sees another maiden, Spring, also waiting for her sisters and planting seeds to create a beautiful garden. The wizard watches until he hears laughter from a third waiting maiden, Summer, who convinces the wizard to step outside and embrace the world. They prepare a feast together just as the fourth sister, Fall, arrives and asks the wizard's name when he invites her.
The Wizard claims he is uninteresting and has nothing to his name despite centuries of life, but Fall remarks otherwise and convinces him he has everything he needs in life. The wizard asks why they helped him with his loneliness, with Fall's answer being they would do so for anyone.
Repaying their kindness, the wizard bestows his magic upon the sisters, gifting them control over the elements of nature. The sisters promise to use their gifts to aid others and to visit their friend every year. Cinedigm has released box sets for each season of RWBY.
