|“||I know that, like me, you're all thrilled that we chose Robyn as our voice in Atlas. No one has fought harder for Mantle than she has... and I know that Robyn will continue that fight on the council.||„|
|~ Fiona's speech at Robyn's rally.|
Fiona Thyme is an anti-hero from the American animated webseries RWBY. She is a sheep Faunus, Huntress, and member of the Happy Huntresses under Robyn Hill, who use vigilantism to protect and provide for Mantle.
She is voiced by Michele Feghali Sontag.
Fiona became a Huntress after graduating from Atlas Academy, and went on to become a member the Happy Huntresses (whether they were a team in training or not is unknown). Their leader Robyn became a well-respected and liked member of society, often using her traits to seek vigilante justice for Mantle citizens, including stealing from the wealthy to give to the impoverished. Her popularity as a charismatic leader and advocate for justice led her to run for a seat in the Atlas council, publicly voicing her opposition to her opponent Jacques Schnee as well as General Ironwood, who, after the Fall of Beacon, tried to maintain order through use of an embargo.
After the arrival of Teams RWBY and JNR, they are sent to an abandoned Schnee Dust Company mine to clear out a Geist and prepare to initiate Ironwood's plan: to build a communications tower on the floating Amity Arena, away from the Grimm, to reestablish communications around Remnant. However, because of Tyrain and Watts, Ironwood does not know who he can trust and keeps the construction a secret from the people, only haring the information with his closest supporters. However, this creates tension when Robyn believes that the materials should be going to the people. Fiona watches the proceedings, then reports back to Robyn.
Robyn and Fiona stop a shipment and demand to know what Ironwood is working on, but Clover Ebi informs her that the information is confidential. Robyn tries to have her Happy Huntresses attack the shipment, but Penny Polendina advises them against it, pleading for Robyn to stand down so she will not have to use force. Robyn steps down, though she demands that her Huntresses find out what Ironwood is up to.
On the day of the council election, Jacques and Robyn are very close in the polls, but most expect Robyn to win. Robyn and her Huntresses attend a victory celebration, where Fiona gives a speech supporting her leader. However, the rally is sabotaged by Tyrian and Watts, who murder several of Robyn's supporters, injure Fiona, and frame Penny for the massacre. Although Ruby Rose and Marrow Amin are assuring Robyn that they were not responsible, Robyn grows angry and desires vengeance.
With Watts' hack, Schnee won the election. In retaliation against Ironwood (whom she still blamed for the massacre as well as Mantle's state), Robyn was now enraged and began a more violent form of vigilantism, where she and her Huntresses attacked Atlas shipments and convoys, incapacitated the workers and guards, and stole the materials. Fiona used her Semblance that allowed her to compress items down to take whole trucks of materials an make them fit in her hand so she could steal them. Despite knowing that Robyn's intentions were good, Ironwood requested that she be taken into custody so they could negotiate. Even after Robyn is clued into what Ironwood's intentions are, she refuses to call off her Huntresses until she gets the whole truth.
After Robyn is informed of the truth, she temporarily sides with Ironwood to protect Mantle from a Grimm attack caused by Watts, and she, Qrow, and Clover go and apprehend Tyrain. However, after feeling betrayed by Team RWBY, Ironwood declares martial law. In the chaos, Robyn attacks Clover while Tyrain gets loose, and after a battle, Clover is killed with Qrow and Robyn framed for the crime. Both of them are arrested, and it is unknown when the Happy Huntresses will return.
Fiona is serious and stern towards her opponents, usually not showing much emotion. However, when in the company of friends and allies, she lights up into a jovial and affable personality. When committing her acts of vigilantism, she goes back to being serious, and does not oppose the orders given to her by Robyn, even if they are criminal.
RWBY: Amity Arena
Fiona appears as a unit in RWBY: Amity Arena. She is a ranged unit that can summon a truck with a gun out of a "pocket dimension" to aid her in battle. Once the truck is destroyed, it drops a stationary gun that acts as a building unit.
- Fiona Thyme alludes to Friar Tuck from the English folklore of Robin Hood.
