I’ll have you know I didn’t stop growing while you were away at Beacon.
—Whitley to Weiss

Whitley Schnee is the younger brother of Weiss Schnee and Winter Schnee. He is first seen in "Remembrance" at the Schnees' home. After their father stripped Weiss of her position as heiress in "Punished", Whitley became the heir to the Schnee Dust Company.


Whitley Schnee has white hair and light blue eyes with a fair complexion. His hair is mostly pushed to left, although he does have a cowlick. Whitley is fairly tall and is quite slender.

His attire consists of a short-sleeved white dress shirt, the sleeves fastened just above his elbows by navy blue cuffs, each with twin gold buttons. Over his untucked shirt he wears a light blue vest, with a black handkerchief in his right breast pocket. He also wears a black necktie, navy blue trousers and black dress shoes.

He seems very formal about his attire and his posture. He usually has at least one hand behind his back.


Like his father, Whitley is cold, vindictive, overbearing, selfish, and pitiless. But he's also deceptive, but practices it better than Jacques. He revealed to Weiss that he only feigned amiability and respect towards her in order to be able to subtly claim Weiss' inheritance to the SDC.

When it comes to the roles of Huntsmen, Whitley sees them as barbaric, implying he has no martial skill whatsoever to his sisters. He claims to have respect for Winter, but this has been discredited when Whitley reveals his ruse to Weiss.

When speaking, Whitley is expressive through his body movement, often moving several times and frequently shifting positions.

Powers and AbilitiesEdit

Since the Glyph Semblance runs in the Schnee Family, it is likely that Whitley has the Semblance of Glyphs. However, given that Whitley sees Huntsmen as barbarians, it can be assumed he has no form of Aura training, nor any interest in developing his martial potential.


  • Whitley is a given name (Anglo-Saxon) meaning "white meadow", from "white" and "lea"(clearing, meadow, field).
  • Like the rest of his family, he also shares the same last name as them. Which is German for "Snow," following the color naming convention on Remnant.
