CRDL (pronounced "Cardinal") is a team in the world of RWBY. The team was first seen in the episode Players and Pieces. During the initiation, the team brought back the Black Bishop pieces.

Beginning in Jaunedice, at least two of the members appear to be bullies, with Cardin Winchester picking on Jaune Arc. Meanwhile, Russel Thrush is seen calling Velvet Scarlatina a freak, while Sky Lark and Dove Bronzewing simply laugh at Velvet in agreement.

The first battle with the four members together takes place in Extracurricular against Pyrrha Nikos.

TriviaEdit

  • The team seems to have a bird motif, similar to Team RWBY's fairytale motif and Team JNPR's cross-dressing mytho-historical figures motif. Each member's name is synonymous with or similar to the name of a bird.
    • Furthermore, the birds lend credence to the possibility this group shares a heraldic motif. While the cardinal is an obvious allusion to the religious station of the same name, the others (Thrush, Lark, Dove) are figures which were typically used on heraldic shields.
  • As revealed during Forever Fall, each member of the team has eyes which are a shade of blue.
