Miltia: Melanie, who is this girl?
Melanie: I don't know, Miltia, but we should teach her a lesson.
~ Melanie and Miltia confronting Yang.

Melanie and Miltiades "Miltia" Malachite are pair of black-haired twins in the world of RWBY. The twin sisters first appear in the "Yellow" Trailer as the secondary antagonists and are shown to be bodyguards working for Junior.

They are both voiced by Maggie Tominey, who also voiced Deery in the same series.


Melanie is a girl in her teenage years. Having black hair and green eyes, she wears a white dress with a cyan tint in some places and white shoes with blades attached at the heels. She also wears a flower hairpin, a white scarf, white gloves, "wings", a sliver belt, and makeup. 

Miltia is a similar age to her sister and with similar eyes and hair, but wears a red dress, gloves, and boots. She also wears feathers above her ear. 


Although having a lack of lines, Melanie seems to have a arrogant and confident personality. Militia also has little lines, but is more kind and shy then her sister. 

Both seem to be pretty high tastes with other men, being distasteful with Neptune when he greets them.



Not much is known about the two, but they did join Junior's club at some point in time and became his guards. 

"Yellow" Trailer

In the trailer, both are first seen in a bar nearby Junior, but he then later makes them leave when Yang sits nearby. When the girl attacks him, he sends out his henchmen, which she beats. After, he tries using his main two goons, Miltia and Melanie after them, and although they do hold then own for a while, both are then taken out by Yang.

Volume 2

The two make a small appearance, both sitting nearby the club as they watch Yang talk to Junior. They then leave after Neptune tries and fails to talk to them.

RWBY: Amity Arena

The Malachite Twins appear as units in RWBY: Amity Arena. They are a pair of melee fighters that swap out frequently during the battle, allowing them to stay active for longer.

Powers And Abilities

Melanie mostly uses a acrobatic style of combat, mainly using powerful kicks with the blades on her heels. Milita compliments this by mostly using her acrobatic style with clawed gloved. Both twins have a respectful amount of strength and agility. 

When both twins fight together, they fight to help the other, using flanking and distracting moves to leave a opening for the other or to prohibit attacks.



  • According to Monty Oum, both twins' designs are based on early concepts for the main heroes, with Melanie and Miltia being based on concepts for Weiss and Ruby respectedly. 
    • Monty also created the characters out of a request from a friend who wanted twins to cosplay as.
