335 UNASSIGNED EXP
He is 57 but looks 40
An illegitimate child raised by his legal insane grandfather due to his dad being the go to guy for “dealing” with the competition and opposition for the Schnee Dust Company (and generally just not being around at all) and his mom always being “out and about”. When the time came he changed his first name and enrolled into Signal and eventually Beacon.
His father’s reputation gained unwanted attention from human and faunus. Usually resulting in various forms of bullying which would always end in a fight. This persisted all the way into his training at signal, until one day help came from an Amazon of a faunus, Nyella Pathera Atroxiton (Or Nell as he'd call her). After she cleaned house, the 2 become very close. First as friends, then as lovers. The 2 had moved in within their second year at Beacon and by the end of their 3rd they manged to have two children, twins.
Rather than actively work for the academies, Royce and Nell opened a freelance business where they would take a variety of jobs that required their skills. This allowed them to work with slightly less restrictions. They would each take turns watching the kids as one went on a job. However, one day Nell didn't come back. After a week of worrying, her body was found, dead, surrounded with thousands of impressions of dead Grimm. Royce was crushed beyond the point of tears. He did his best raising the twins alone and preparing them for Beacon.
While the business was still doing fine, Royce found himself entering a deep depression as he couldn't handle the fact that he was doing it alone, so when offered to be a professor, he instantly took the position.
After his son and daughters wedding, Royce decided to wander Remnant. Along his travels he aquired new skills and gear as well as met some odd people. One piece of equipment that he found was a set of armor said to give the wearer's attacks divine properties. This was put to the test when he went up against a rough archangel, and after a long battle Royce managed to come out on top. It wouldn't be the first time he would clash and defeat celestial beings. Angels and demons of varying strength fell to his blade over the years. However, he's also earned some friends that live in high places just in case he needs a miracle (Haha, bad joke).
Despite fatherhood and old age dialing it down a bit, he's still a sarcastic, egotistical, cynical ass.
