[RWBY Volume 4 Intro – Let’s Just Live] [The Nuckelavee Grimm roars] Ren: Just get him to safety! Jaune: Guys! Keep moving, go in a circle! Ruby: What are you doing?! [The Nuckelavee Grimm screeches] Nora: Ruby! Nora: Stop looking! Ren: Guh! Jaune: Ren! Knock it off! Ren: Nora, let go! Nora, they’re going to get hurt if we don’t- Nora: No. I won’t let you kill yourself like this. After everything we’ve been through, I won’t let it end. Nora: Not like this. Nora: We can do this. Ruby: Ren. Jaune and I can take care of its arms. Nora: I’ll take care of the horse. Ren: And I’ll take care of the rest. [The Nuckelavee Grimm screeches in pain] Ren: Now! [The Nuckelavee Grimm screeches in pain] Ren: Nora!
[The Nuckelavee Grimm screeches in pain] [The Nuckelavee Grimm screeches in agony] [The Nuckelavee Grimm roars] Ren: ‘For my mother.’ [The Nuckelavee Grimm shrieks in pain] ‘For my father’ [The Nuckelavee Grimm shrieks in pain] ‘For all those that you’ve slain.’ [The Nuckelavee Grimm shrieks in pain] Ren: For myself. Qrow: It’s quiet. Good job, kiddo. Jaune: Guys! I think I hear something! Jaune: How did you find us out here? Mistral Pilot: We were on patrol and saw the smoke. Nobody’s been out here for years, thought something might be wrong. Ruby: What if we don’t make it in time? Jaune: Ruby. Ruby: We made it, Uncle Qrow. *Awww* ♪[RWBY Volume 4 OST – “Home”]♪ ♪ I don’t know where we should go ♪ ♪ Feeling farther from our goal ♪ ♪ I don’t know what path we will be showed ♪ ♪ But I know that when I’m with you I’m at home ♪ ♪ Yes, I know that when I’m with you I’m at home ♪ Ruby: Hey sis, I hope my letters have been reaching you and Dad. Hand-written stuff’s never been super reliable, but I guess it’s all we’ve got these days. Anyway, in case you haven’t been getting them, I want to say I’m sorry for leaving the way I did. I know you told me it was a reckless idea, and after everything I’ve been through, I can definitely say you were right. It’s been hard, on all of us, and I’m not just talking about the monsters we fought out here. Atlas Pilot: Okay, you can hide out back in the cargo hold. I’ll take you as far as I can, but if we get caught, you’re on your own. Understand? Ruby: Every step we made took us further and further away from the things we knew And every morning we woke up wondering, if just over the next hill would be something good or something terrible. Ruby: It’s scary, not knowing what’s going to happen next. And the things we do know now, just how bad it can get, It almost makes it all worse. Ruby: You told me once that bad things just happen. Ruby: You told me once that bad things just happen. You were angry when you said it, and I didn’t want to listen. But you were right, bad things do happen, all the time, every day. Which is why I’m out here, to do whatever I can, wherever I can, and hopefully do some good. Ruby: We’ve all lost something, and I’ve seen what loss can do to people. But if we gave up every time we lost, then we’d never be able to move forward. Ruby: We’d never have a chance to see what beautiful things the future might have waiting for us. We’d never have the strength to change; whether it’s ourselves, or the world around us. Ruby: And we’d never be there for other people who might one day be lost without us. Ruby: This is what we were training for, Yang, to become Huntresses, to be the ones to stand up and do something about all the bad in the world. Train Announcer: Approaching, City of Mistral. Ruby: Because there are plenty of people out there who are still lost and even more who will try to gain everything they can from their sorrow. Ruby: Believe me when I say, I know it can feel impossible, like every single day is a struggle against some unstoppable monster we can never hope to beat. Ruby: So we have to try, if not for us, then for the people we’ve already- Then for the people we haven’t lost yet. I miss you so much. I miss Weiss and Blake too. But I think you’d all be proud to know that I made it to Mistral. All of us did, and we even ran into Uncle Qrow along the way! Qrow: Hey, aren’t I normally the one saving you? Ruby: He’s going to take us to see Professor Lionheart, the headmaster of Haven Academy. And, he told us some things that you’re gonna wanna hear, things I can’t trust will make it to you in this letter. Ruby: But maybe, if you joined us, he could tell you himself. With Beacon gone, they’ll need Dad at Signal more than ever, and I know you need to focus on yourself before I can expect you to come out with me. But it sure would be great to get Team RWBY back together again. Yang: You are in so much trouble when I find you. Until next time, your loving sister, Ruby Rose. Ruby: Oh! Uh, PS. I’ll be sure to give you the address of where we’ll be staying at Mistral! I’d love to hear back from you and Dad, and I can’t wait to fill you in on whatever’s going to happen next! Now that we’ve made it across Anima, I really think things are gonna start going our way. Watts: Why thank you, Professor. Salem always did say you were… quite hospitable.
