Pyrrha Nikos is one of the playable characters included in the Downloadable Content of RWBY: Grimm Eclipse, which was released on October 13th.[1]

 Appearance Edit

Pyrrha is the most armoured of JNPR. She wears a circlet around her head, that stands out in her red hair.

On her neck, she wears a gold necklace, followed by a tan and gold leather bodice.

Her arms brandish half arm gloves, though on her left she wears a vambrace, more than likely to help support her shield.

Pyrrha wears a belt which brandishes her logo on her side, which is on top a long piece of red cloth that flows around her legs, which is in turn on top of a pair of dark hot pants.

Her thighs are partially bare, but are covered by a set of golden cuisses, poleyns and greaves. Underneath these is are a pair of thin brown leggings.

To round it all off, she wears a pair of brown heels, the cloth folding over itself to show an intricate gold pattern.

Abilities Edit

Pyrrha specialises in fast melee attack combos. She has good versatility and can do high damage to a single target and handle crowds. Her ranged attack is the slowest ranged attack, dealing 25 damage, and has no special third strike, though one bullet can damage up to three enemies. Most of her special abilities involve her manipulating her weapons using her semblance. Her counter deals 60 damage.
