Hair Trigger: Yang is a good fighter, but has a violent temper that can leave her easily-goaded and very predictable in combat. And Do NOT touch her hair.
Motivation: Missing Mom: Yang's mother Raven abandoned her soon after being born. A core part of Yang's goals center around finding and confronting her.
Power Loss - Semblance: Yang's Semblance is fueled by a combination of her emotions and the hits she's taken through an encounter. If she's not sufficiently angered nor has been struck enough the boost is negligable. When she activates is based only on her anger the boost quickly fades.
Relationship - Family: Yang is the older sister of Ruby whom she is very protective of and wants to help make friends and come out of her shell. She takes after her father Taiyang.
Relationship - Team RWBY
Responsibility - Huntsman
Quirk - Dad Jokes: Yang makes horrible puns all the time. All. The. Time.

Yang Xiao Long is a student at Beacon Academy and one of the main protagonists of RWBY. Her weapons of choice are a pair of Dual Ranged Shot Gauntlets, Ember Celica.
She made her first appearance in the "Yellow" Trailer, searching for clues regarding the whereabouts of her mother, who left her when she was very young. At Beacon Academy, Yang becomes a member of Team RWBY alongside her younger half-sister Ruby Rose, Weiss Schnee and Blake Belladonna.
Daughter of Taiyang Xiao Long and his first wife, Raven Branwen. She loves her father, her sister, bad puns and good fights. Do not ? DO NOT ? touch her hair. She•fs the heaviest hitter on Team RWBY. Her Semblance is the ability to fight harder as she takes more battle damage. Her weapons are the Ember Celica, a pair of shotgun gauntlets loaded with explosive Dust cartridges that fire as she punches. She•fs a talented martial artist, when her temper and lust for battle aren•ft running away with her.
She recently lost an arm in battle with her friend Blake•fs ex-boyfriend, a leader in the faunus terrorist group, the White Fang. This hasn•ft caused much long-term harm, as her high-tech prosthetic replacement is agile and powerful, but she•fs still unsteady.
Yang is very aware of her beauty, likes the attention she gets, and isn•ft above flirting and teasing to get something she wants.
Note: The team represents fairy tale characters, and Yang is Goldilocks.
GAMEPLAY: Like the other members of RWBY Yang normally operates at PL 9 with her semblance boosting her to PL10. She's unlike all the other members of her team, and huntsmen in general, she has a lean towards toughness.
She's straighforward in terms of how she fights though she's a bit more mobile than some bruisers. Her semblance is normally the ability to get stronger with damage taken but that doesn't translate too well into MnM given PL limits so I had to get creative. To get around the mechanical limitations she instead uses Luck to force rerolls in her opponent, her healing bringing her back to full health and Impervious Toughness being high enough to be useful against stronger foes. She relies on burning through saved HPs when boosted to get the full benefit of her semblance. Luck, All Out Attacks combined with Attack Flurry, and Extra Effort should take care of most of damage dealing. Her healing and regeneration would let her reliably stay in the fight longer than most.
Yang is tough, and she even has a couple old school Advantages added to show that. Last Stand allows an HP to be used to let her temporarily ignore incapacitaiton for a turn and Withstand Damage to be used to trade defense for extra toughness.
