That's so beautiful... also Tragic how she died. Her mother is beautiful and her dad is.. i feel like that he's so "Dadly" or something along those words. A tragedy like this is something we all can relate to how heavy it was to see her go away so soon. I believe not all of us would be able to do this much like Jaune. We would still be in tears. That impact hits me hard and I cry too. I love this piece. overall an 11/10 for every bit of the magic in this piece. Please create more for us to see~!

First, I want to state just how incredibly heart-wrenching this scene is. I'm sure many within the RWBY community have envisioned the scene themselves but I feel this piece hit the nail on the head.

Pyrrha's mother's reaction is exactly what I would have expected from hearing her only daughter is no longer with them and to hear it months, if not nearly a year or so, after the incident must be devastating. Her father's reaction is not dissimilar. While her mother's is more emotional, her father's shows his inability to fully comprehend the information he's been given, almost as if he doesn't know and possibly doesn't want to believe what he'd being told. In summary, their reactions no doubt mirror those of people who have had the unfortunate situation of being informed their chid is gone.

The lack of Jaune's face, or anything that would otherwise showcase his expression, is no doubt purposeful. The fact that you purposely hide it from us, the audience, allows us to create for ourselves the image we would imagine the young man would have in regards to burdening himself with the task of informing Pyrrha's parents of what transpired. He could be solemn, he could be in pain, he could be doing his best to hold back the tears that are even now threatening to come flowing out of him much in the same way Pyrrha's Mother's did. The fact that we don't know adds greater depth to the situation and image as a whole.

The last thing I wanted to draw attention to was their house number, 11. While it may have been a random pick, I highly doubt this. I believe this was deliberate choice on your part as something that was to add meaning to the image as a whole. If you look up the significance of the number eleven you can find that it represents those who posses intuition, patience, honesty, sensitivity, and spirituality and are idealistic. In short, many of these qualities are the very same that we saw in Pyrrha herself and was no doubt a choice by you, the artist, as a way of subtly alluding to the young woman. (As an artist myself, a writer, I tend to do the same thing and often look for subtle clues like this one. I could just be looking too deeply into it but that's just how I roll),

On a side note, while I put 5 stars for impact, that was simply because I couldn't more than that, like say 11. :)

First of all, this is both very sad and very beautiful. This scene should have been in Volume 5; Jaune returning their daughter's sash with bad news would have been major show and character development. Great work here.

BTW, harkening back to your more recent Grimmverse pieces, if a resurrected and Grimmified Pyrrha showed up on their doorstep, it's not too hard to see Mr. and Mrs. Nikos joining with Salem and their daughter.

NEW SCENARIOS

A.) The team is gonna meet the Nikos Family in Argus (Which I heard was a place just off the coast of Anima that the group was going to via the Argus Limited in order to get closer to Solitas) and we'll get our closure there.

B.) The Nikos family isn't even in Anima anymore, and they either went to Vale to look for Pyrrha, or went to Atlas for some reason which will set up a future confrontation.

C.) Pyrrha's Parents aren't around anymore. At least one of them is either dead or missing. (Keep in mind that there currently has been no mention of Pyrrha's father.)

D.) (My personal Headcannon inspired by Thor Ragnarok.) Pyrrha has a badass gladiator sister in Vacuo. She only heard of Pyrrha's death and isn't sure whether or not it's true. Once we get to Vacuo she'll confront Jaune and that's when we'll finally get closure.

E.) Mrs. Nikos is in a coma and Mr. Nikos is one of Mistral's huntsmen who went MIA or KIA. We get a scene where Jaune leave's either Pyrrha's sash or her circlet in her hand before leaving and some time afterwards she wakes up. After hearing about everything that has happened since she first fell into that coma, including what happened in Vale, what happened to her husband and what happened to her daughter, she's devastated and Salem tells her that it was all because of Ozpin and his inner circle and that the only way to bring back her family is through the four relics, one of which is currently in the possession of RWBY and Co. This will result in her going after their relic along with the other three, filling in for Cinder in Salem's inner circle, and going on a personal manhunt for Ozpin and the other headmasters, minus Leo of course. Mrs. Nikos may even get help from some of Pyrrha's old friends from Sanctum. It would also be interesting for Salem to throw Cinder under the bus too by telling Mrs. Nikos that it was Cinder that landed the killing blow on her daughter. This would be Cinder's punishment for how royally she f**ked up back in Haven due to her own selfishness.

As far fetched as this seems, i really want Scenarios D and/or E to happen. Such scenarios would not only give us more backstory on Pyrrha, more developement for Jaune and Ozpin, a new antagonist, and more conflict, but it would finally give us closure on the rest of the Nikos family and show us more of the consequences of what happened in Vale.

You think that's bad, imagine Jaune becoming a turncoat and joining them. He already distrusts Oz without knowing his past. If he finds out that Pyrrha died in a big game of keep away he's gonna go ballistic.

No kidding. He hasn't told them about that particular part of his past; Jinn should have mentioned it. Nora and Ren are also going to be mad at him.

If you're familiar with the dishwater1910's Grimmified Team RWBY, which I theorize to be a possible future of theirs, then it's not hard at all to imagine Team JNR following down that path to be reunited with Pyrrha. Grimm RWBY might be Salem's favorite, but there's a strong chance that Team JNPR would be her first complete Grimm Huntsmen team.

:iconbionicleimmortal:
To be honest, I wouldn't go as far as to say that ALL of JNR would go turncoat. Ren and Nora might be angry and would probably lose their trust in Ozpin like everyone else but they wouldn't betray their friends or the world they are sworn to protect. Regardless of the odds, they aren't gonna hold a pretty grudge and let all those deaths be in vain. They're probably gonna stick with Ruby if anything, especially if they find out that Ruby is basically the Anti-Grimm.

The reason I mentioned Jaune specifically is because he isn't really that stable emotionally. He's the only one besides Ruby whom hasn't gotten over Pyrrha's death, and he's far more open about that.

The betrayal won't be immediate. Ruby will most likely defuse the situation and remind everybody what they're fighting for. JNR will come to their senses and follow her from then on, but Jaune will basically be a ticking time bomb, with the only reason he's keeping his cool being Ruby.

Sounds right to me. You know, I always wondered if Jaune is going to face an end like Pyrrha's because of his namesake (Joan of Arc) just as Pyrrha suffered the fate of hers (Achilles).

Oh my god! The designs for Pyrrah's parents are lovely and REALLY good...but oh my god...this just tears out my heart! It's so sad but I fell like if they did handle a scene like this in RWBY, I believe this is how it would go down. Well done on this! It's incredible

A few things. First, I love Pyrrha's mother's design. Definitely calls Pyrrha to mind, but isn't just "older Pyrrha." You can definitely see, though, where Pyrrha got her fashion sense from.
Second, I like that what we can see of the house suggests that it's a fairly simple one. I like the idea that Pyrrha, with her tournament wins and her cereal endorsement deals, came from humble, everyday beginnings.
Third, I like that Jaune is dressed up. He knows that this isn't the kind of news you deliver wearing jeans and a hoodie.
