    Am I the only one that questions how Faunus became the enslaved species? They have all of humanity's benefits AND one from the animal kingdom. Think about it. In pre-industrial Remnant, who do you think stands the better chance at surviving the Grimm; a village of humans or a village of human-like people that can see in the dark, use scorpion stingers, have natural weapons on their body, etc.?

    The science behind genetics dictates that if a faunis and a human "breed" (for lack of better term), there's a 50% chance of it being a faunis and 50% chance with it being human. Other than that, it's gonna be a roll of the dice whichever way you cut it. Science is fun. :)

      but isn't the faunus trait is a dominant one, which would result in human x faunus babies to be faunus? this video says that there isn't a 50/50 chance that the offspring is human.

      The genetics of the Faunus is insanely complicated. They were originally - a very long time ago - genetically engineered by the very rich (normal humans) with the aim of gifting their children with wings. A combination of adding the genes to manufacture an artificial protein called insertase and adding doctored animal mitochondria was intended to have a stable effect, but it failed. The result was the Faunus, and the way the effect is passed down the generations is way more complicated than just chromosomal pairing. Of course, the one effect that is not achieved is gifting anyone with wings.

    Even in a world where monsters, literal monsters, want to destroy every living thing. A world where negative emotions can draw tragedy after tragedy. Racism and xenophobia like this exist. I don't blame them, I can even understand them, but its just sad.


    But in an ant-nihilist world you can only do so much.

    I don't want to get political, but there are serious parallels between the faunus and the Jews after the holocaust. Seen as animals? Given a small patch of mostly desert to be their safe haven?  Obviously you can make connections to many marginalized groups I just never noticed this one.

    Interesting... if faunus can breed with humans, that means that they're not technically another species. At most, they'd be a human subspecies, like the Neanderthals or the Denisovans...

      On Earth, humans are technically animals so it shouldn't be a surprise. You could breed a human and a bonobo for all I know.

      Yes, lions and tigers can breed, but their offspring will always be sterile, meaning they are, in fact, different species. Same goes for horses and donkeys, you can breed them, but you're only going to get a sterile offspring.

  • teamMAZE

    I have been thinking that perhaps the former leader of the White Fang is Blake's father. Maybe he stepped down because...things were getting bad...and he wanted to keep his family safe...and maybe Blake stayed put to fight for what she thought was right. Until she didn't.

    Wait, if faunus traits are dominant, then wouldn't that mean that they would outnumber the humans?


    They have dominant genes and night vision. Even without the dominant genes, the night vision alone would give them a big advantage over humans. While human settlements could easily be wiped at night time, faunus settlements would have a far easier time defending themselves at night.. The only logical reason for Humans to outnumber faunus would be that faunus appeared later on Remnant than humans. Much, much later.

      Or possibly humans simply breed more (and have a preference for humans), and in a world where there's a dangerous top predator species (The grim) pure numbers can be more of an advantage than individual strength.

    • LewisRoantr1 FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      8 months ago

      Probably a mixture of humans developing earlier then the Faunus did, and as well as Anti-Faunus behaviors which went on for the last few centuries manage to kill off enough Faunus to keep them as a minority species. Not enough so they'd end up going extinct, but enough so that humans still outnumber the Faunus even today. Or maybe some Faunus breeds aren't as fertile as humans are, meaning their reproduction cycles are lower for some breeds.  

    • ChivesSmith

      8 months ago

      Maby humans technology advanced quicker, or the faunus were less aggressive and just got picked off one by one.

    • GenericTag

      7 months ago

      @All of you: Or maybe, like this episode said, it's because humans were actively hunting faunus. Also, dominant does NOT mean more common. It just means that trait isn't "hidden" by a similar trait inherited from the other parent. Having 5 fingers plus a thumb is actually a dominant trait, but not very common. 

  • drader1000

    8 months ago

    so if a bull faunus and a wolf faunus can breed to make a different faunus, wouldn't it be a possibility that a breed of faunus could potentially be endangered or almost completely extinct? it would be hard to make a breed of faunus completely extinct I guess since if enough different faunus breed with each other it will eventually make a multitude of different faunus than the original, but I think that's interesting that there exists, basically, an unintentional, or maybe intentional, fault in the breeding process but at the same time a way to counter balance that fault, however small the counter balance may be.

  • CaptianTitus

    I,m Looking forward to the Great War video so it can finally answer some of the questions i have.

     

    1. What was the technological level at 80 years ago (It is mentioned by Jaune that his sword was used by his Grandfather in the Great War and going by the design style i would say mid to late medieval period however it has been hinted at in the Vacuo video that technology was at our modern era such as the person with the mini-gun)

    2 How Large was the war/ How many people were involved and died (No matter how you look at it The Great War would have been nowhere near the size of the First World War and the easiest way to see this is population.

     

    2A

    Remnant had 4 Kingdoms during the war fighting in contrast to that of our world where 42 nations took part in either the Entente or Central Powers and that is not including their respective Empires.  (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Participants_in_World_War_I)

     

    2.B

    Cities It has been said that Towns are made for those who do not wish to live with the rules of Kingdoms given the fact that apart from Atlas no nation has a military its easy to see how this is enforced. As such the Kingdoms consist only of cities and there has been no indication of a city in Solitas at the time only Mantle and whilst Cities hold larger populations than towns it would seem that they aren't massive super cities like we imagine them more like what we have now for Capital cities such as London Tokyo, Paris, Shanghai and New York. And in terms of cities there are very few of them in the modern era.

     

    Vale:5 (If you include Patch)

    Mistral: 3 (Mentioned I think there may be more)

    Atlas: 2 (If you include Mantle)

    Vacuo: 1 (If you include the settlement around Shade Academy)

    Menagerie: 1 (Not included as it was given to Faunus after the Great War.

     

    These are all the Cities of the Modern Era for Remnant (besides a few which may or may not exist in Mistral)

     

    Compare this to the fact that the United Kingdom in the modern era has 69 Cities and you can see the massive difference and if you then added the towns, villages hamlets and etc and you have an estimated population of 65.1 Million as such i doubt that there is more than a population of 50 million Humans and Faunus combined on the planet.

     

    So in the end i think depending on the era of technology the amount of people who died in the Great war at max is about 900,000 and that is if technology was at our level and killed 1.8% of the Remnants population.

     

    Anyway that my opinion what do you think

    • CaptianTitus

      8 months ago

      Sorry meant Remnant population is 150 million living in urban environments


      Now that i think about it there is probably more but it is incredibly doubtful the entire planet even has a population has of 500 million.


      And travel isn't easy as said by Qrow there are only towns between cities no mentions of Motorways (Highways for Americans) and whilst its shown there are cross continental trains such as the one the Schnee company uses to transport dust to vale where it may then be moved else where in the world. These probably come under constant attack due to the fact of its sheer length and that robots are needed for the trains defense when Blake and Adam stops the convoy. 


      Then there is the matter of little available space something which our history was something different whenever we wanted to expand in history we simply used armies to face other groups of humans who got in the expanders way. Then add the fact that Glynda mention the word centuries then we know that Soul Beings have had time to expand but the sheer amount of Grimm has stopped them which is why Kingdoms were founded first in DEFENSIVE positions rather than back on Earth for many different reasons such as:


      River's where the first Civilizations were born as the land was fertile and warm enough to grow crops.


      Key Crossroads where towns were establish due to the fact that they either connected civilizations with a modern example being Turkey a key point between Europe and the Middle East. Or they were established on key trade routes where cities would flourish like in Italy before the Reunification.


      Religious places yes there are probably some religious towns or villages in Remnant most likely Mistral but its doubtful cities were built around them like they are here such as Jerusalem or Damascus.


      Defensive where they were established to defend another more important area such as the choke point of a country like a mountain pass or defend a route to the Capital.


      But when said in all the Kingdoms videos the locations picked were all defensive.


      Vale: Mountains and Shallow Oceans

      Mistral: Cliffs

      Mantle/Atlas: Freezing cold

      Vacuo: Natural oasis with barriers


      Which leads another question why is there not a Kingdom on the island of Vytal 


      Vytal like Remmnant despite looking different still has some similarities in continent climate and as such i can see Vytal's geographical size and position similar to my country the United Kingdom (Vytal is that island in the centre of the geographical map South of Atlas North East of Vale and just of Sanas)


      Both are small Islands surrounded by even smaller islands located just of the main continent with a channel separating them from the continent both are surrounded by water and most likely sit on the edge of named different bodies of water. 

      UK: English Channel, Irish Sea Celtic Sea, North Sea and Atlantic Ocean 

      Vytal: Channel to the South, Ocean to the East, Ocean to the West, Ocean to the South East and South West 


      And so unless this place has no natural barriers at all then i would find this place one of the easiest places to completely get rid of Grimm as once they were all eliminated from the island there wouldn't be any way for them to sneak back on. Which would allow for a quick expansion with a strong military force located in what seems to be a fertile region with access to multiple bodies of water.


      As such if i was ever to write a story for RWBY it would be located on this island as the Fith Nation called the nation of Great Vytalia.


      Anyway thanks for reading Your thoughts

    I am still paying monthly for the first membership only for the sake of rwby, but now I somehow felt that it made no difference now, as the main content kept on delaying despite the "early access" and unexpecting to get short 3 mins instead of 15 mins per week out of generally four weeks a month, it happening more than twice, that makes you mostly pay an early access of mostly 3 min shorts a month, and paying more next month too, just to get "the early access of the last episode that should already be out, or even paying more for the ongoing series." That sure sounds like my monthly insurance subscription.  

    Not saying its a bad thing though, just a complain and an info for those rwby only fans contemplating to join the membership.
