You were six and living in Mistral, you had the same dream as almost every kid, to become a hunter and kill the creatures of Grimm and be seen as a hero in the eyes of many al across Remnant, you and your friends would often go out into the woods and use sticks and branches as swords and maces that were laying of the floor of the forest, make the sound of metal hitting metal with you mouths, completely unaware of the true dangers of the world around you
One day, one of your friends decided it was a good idea to go further into the woods, while some agreed many left as it was nearing dinner time and feared the wrath of their parents as a result of getting home late and of how far they ventured into the woods, thus leaving only four of you closest friends
Clark, was the one who suggested the idea of going deeper into the woods and he was the bravest of the bunch and never backed down from the challenge, but that was only a result of being the most dim-witted person you knew
Clare and Sara, twin dog faunases, both having the ears, Clare being the protector of the duo, never let anyone say anything bad about her or her sister and get away unscathed, she had a mean personality but on the inside was actually careing and nice, Sara on the other hand was the complet opposite of her, she would always hide behind Clare and spoke with a stutter, and she felt like a younger sister to you, and as a result of being shy, the only time she wouldn't be behind her sister if she had warmed up to you, and that took some time
Then there was Jake, he was the more, interesting one of the group, he talked in third person and if he wasn't hanging upside down or running around spewing utter nonsense he would be found with the four of you
The last bit of sun rays with slowly hiding behind the horizon and the tip of the cracked moon was rising covering the world below in a gentle white glow, and yet you five were still out and about pretending to fight each other with swords and any other weapon you could think of, unaware of what was about to happen that'll change your life forever
Clark: "You'll never defeat me! I am the strongest hunter in all the world!"
Jake: "Jake will win, and once Jake dose, Jake will take your head as a trophy!"
Sara: "D-Don't you th-think that's a b-b-bit t-too harsh J-Jake?"
(Y/N): "Don't bother Sara, he's not listening"
Jake: "Jake wants your head!, Give it to Jake!, Give it!"
Clare: "Yah, besides once that nut-job wins he'll instantly get bored and run up a tree"
That's when it happened, a creature of Grimm, a Beowolf, bursts out of the shadows, causing you all to run away in fear, and unfortunately losing the sight of everyone, after sever trips and falls, you didn't know how long or how far you ran, but you finally collapsed, out of breath leaving you panting and gasping for air, looking around to see if the Grimm had followed you, you were glad to find that it hadn't, but your thoughts quickly chant to that of your friends, Are they ok? Did they get hurt? Or worse, eaten? You were snapped out of your thoughts when you heard a snap of a twig
(Y/N): "G-Guys? I-Is that you?"
Your question answered buy a powerful hit to the head leaving you dazed and vision blurry, and unable to see your attacker, grabbing you buy the hair they dragged you off to Oum nows where, then you started to hear sobbing and could faintly see the image of Clare and Sara
Thug #1: "We're going to make good with these three"
Thug #2: "Make that five"
Then another man came out of the shadows carrying an unconscious Clark and a bruised and cut Jake, you were too in shock to speak or even move, that's when you blacked out
Hours later you awaken in a room with glass three glass walls and one stone wall with a barred gate, on the other side of the glass were six men in lab coats writing down server all things on note pad or flicking buttons and pressing switches on a panel in front of them, Clare was the first to speak
Clare: "Wh-What d-do you w-want with u-us?"
Scientist: "We are going to see if a Grimm will attack something even if it doesn't pose a threat to it's survival, and you five have kindly 'volenteered' for this experiment"
Sara: "G-God, were g-going to d-die *cries*"
Clare: "No, w-were not, Sara, look at me, w-we are a-all going to get through this"
It was then the barred gate at the other side of the room opened and out came a Ursa, and it wasted no time in charging at easy pray, first taking out Clark with a swipe of it's paw leaving three red gashese down his chest before biting his head of then it simply squashed Jake with its weight by stomping down on him, cruising him into the ground
Right now Clare was just forcing Sara's head into her shoulder so she couldn't see the very brutal death of her friends, but alas the wouldent last thong
It then attacking Clare and Sara, ripping off one of Clare's arms before coming down on her body taking half of it in its mouth before ripping it away eating it, then just simply swipes get at Sara flinging her across the room crashing into one of the glass walls cracking it slightly and then she fall down to the ground dead
It all happened so fast you didn't know what to do, then it started to slowly walk its way over to you
(Y/N): "N-NO!, S-STAY AWAY!, STAY AWAY FROM ME!"
And as much to your shock, and to the scientists, it obeyed you command and stopped moving towards you, and what was just silent for a few seconds seemed like hours, then one of the scientists made the mistake of coming into the test area
Scientist: "Amazing, absolutely amazing, make it do something else"
Oh, how you were going to make him regret those words, you pointed at the scientists and said one word
The Ursa rushed at the scientists and started to kill them, it took out quite a few before being put down, but you then became the main focus of the scientists, and this was when your life became a living hell, as the years went on, you changed in appearance as a result of you sembalence, your hair grew black and reached down to your lower back, it still had remanets of your old hair colour with it having sprinkles of (H/C) all through out it, you grew bone armour much like that of a Grimm on your lower and upper arms, and spikes of bone grew out of your shoulders, even your hair couldn't cover the length of them, and your fingers grew small but deadly claws, and your teeth turned sharp and pointed with your canines growing much bigger than that of a humans, black lines went down from under your eyes and across your cheeks vanishing into your mess of hair, the whites of your eyes now black and your (E/C) irises and a tint of glowing red on the out side that completely took over when angry, which nowadays was almost every day, the tests they made you do left you cold hearted and cruel, with a permanent, but small, frown in place, your only food was the people they forced you to kill or the scraps of food they left you
You only killed them because even if you didn't they will still die, at least you gave them a quick and painless death, and they had left you in ragged clothes, your hair being your only real warmth as the bed they gave you only had a old pillow, they kept you in a cell and treated you like a dog, literally, you had a shock collar around you neck and if you disobeyed any of their commands or attack them with Grimm, they would kill the Grimm and shock you until you were on their verge of passing out, there were days that they didn't do any test but that was because you needed to recover or you could have died and their primary focus lost
Years had passed since you discovered you sebalance and you were now fifteen, and you were currently sitting on your bed, that was until you heard someone talk to you in a manner you had never heard in years
???: "Well, I thought going along with Iornwood would have been pretty boring, but looks like I was wrong"
Looking up from the floor, your red eyes glowing in the dark, you saw a man with what seemed to be a sword on his back, drinking out of a flask
(Y/N): "Who are you?"
Your voice cold and almost completely emotionless
Qrow: "Names Qrow, what are you doing in there?"
(Y/N): "What's it look like, I'm being forced to be a test subject"
Qrow: "You know, it's rude not to tell someone your name after they've told you theirs"
(Y/N): "You never asked"
Qrow: "Toshèy, alright, what is your name then"
Qrow: "Well then, (Y/N), was say we get out of here"
(Y/N): "Don't want to be here any long then I have to"
Qrow then grabbed his sword of his back and with one slash, cut off the door to your cell, then after what seemed like agonising hours of walking you were finally in the out side world once against, having to squint and use your hand to block out the sun because your eyes had gotten to being in the dark for so long, you dropped your hand down closed your eyes and took a deep breath a fresh air, after being in siide the lab for so long, being in the out side world felt like that chains that were holding you down finally broke and setting you free
After some time basking in your freedom, you bordead a air ship where they took off your shock collar and you felt like you could finally breath properly, now you were in a room with three men arguing, them being as you just learned Iornwood, Opzin and Qrow, the topic they were arguing about was you, after they had learned that you could summon and crontroll Grimm, Iornwood wanted to turn you into one of his soldiers, where as Qrow denied that idea saying all he wanted to do was turn you into a weapon and sudjested to Ozpin to put you into his academy but he denied that idea saying that you were too young and it too inexperienced, and honestly you were getting pissed, after years you had finally gotten your freedom only to be argued over like some kind of toy
Iornwood: "If he comes to Atlas, he'll learn respect and discipline be turned into someone the people can look up to"
Qrow: "Sure, that's what you want him for, you want him as a weapon, and he can learn all that at Beacon"
Opzin: "For the last time Qrow, he cannot come to my school, he is simply too inexperienced, he cannot come to Beacon, if your so persistent in this you can train him until he is, then he can come to my school"
You had enough of this, they were talking about you like you weren't even there, you had just gotten your freedom and you weren't about it slip through your fingers, with your eyes glowing red you yelled
They stopped arguing and looked at you in shock
(Y/N): "Listen I don't know the hell you people are, but I am not about to be argued over like some kind of toy that you all want, I am not about to give up my freedom just as soon as I got it back, so you know what I'm going to do, leave and live MY life how I want to"
With that you jumped through one of the manny Windows around you and summoned a Nevermore, and flew away as fast as you could leaving them, and that horrid lab behind
