After a small break they all went back to watching the future.

Fade-in to an image of Beacon Academy.

"Oh look it's Beacon!" Tai pointed out causing the rest of his team to roll their eyes at him.

Narrator: Legends. Stories scattered through time. Mankind has grown quite fond of recounting the exploits of heroes and villains, forgetting so easily that we are remnants, byproducts, of a forgotten past.

"Who's that narrating?" Kali asked, the others shrugged.

"Probably someone important" Tai said eventually.

The gems in the image glow green and fade to show simple pictures of a man rising from the earth before being surrounded by creatures, barely held back by warriors.

"Grimm" Ghira said in a dark tone of voice.

Narrator: Man, born from dust, was strong, wise, and resourceful, but he was born into an unforgiving world. An inevitable darkness — creatures of destruction — the creatures of Grimm - set their sights on man and all of his creations. These forces clashed, and it seemed the darkness was intent on returning man's brief existence to the void.

An uneasy feeling filled the room.

Black sets in, then suddenly lessens as a light grows brighter and brighter until a gem rises from it and lowers itself into the hands of man.

Narrator: However, even the smallest spark of hope is enough to ignite change, and in time, man's passion, resourcefulness, and ingenuity led them to the tools that would help even the odds. This power was appropriately named "Dust".

A bright smile appeared on Willows face.

The scene zooms out to show men shooting lightning, raising swords, and aiming rifles at the retreating beasts as a castle appears behind them.

Narrator: Nature's wrath in hand, man lit their way through the darkness, and in the shadow's absence came strength, civilization, and most importantly, life.

The castle zooms out to show a map of Remnant,

"Did you just say something intelligent?" Qrow asked in a stunned tone of voice, Tai stuck his tongue out at him in retaliation. His question forgotten for now.

which houses other buildings until they disappear in flashes of white and the map is lowered to show the scattered moon over a city at night.

Narrator: But even the most brilliant lights eventually flicker and die. And when they are gone... darkness will return.

"Well that's foreboding" Qrow muttered.

Roman Torchwick and four of his henchmen head down an alley from the shadows.

"Those are the guys from the night club that Yang was at" Summer pointed out.

They stop behind Roman, who reignites his cigar without touching it and grins before walking down the road, frightening nearby citizens as they make their way towards the shop From Dust Till Dawn.

Narrator: So you may prepare your guardians, build your monuments to a so-called "free world", but take heed... there will be no victory in strength.

"Well she's certainly morbid" An remarked, getting nods of agreement from the others.

Roman and his henchmen enter the shop, the camera lowering to a young girl wearing a hooded red cloak in the corner of the shop, reading a weapons magazine.
