Top Ten RWBY Characters that Need More Screen Time

With the Volume 4 soundtrack coming on May 1st, I wanted to express my love for this show that introduced me to RoosterTeeth. While I do enjoy RWBY, I think some more characters deserve some character development and screen time. So these are the characters I believe need more screen time.
The Top Ten
1 Cinder Fall A mysterious woman who possesses fire-based powers and uses a pair of blades that combine to form a bow that she uses to fire arrows.Vol. 2 She also fights with glass and has been noted to have fused Dust into some of her clothing. Cinder is a very cunning and secretive woman, with goals of gaining power and becoming feared by others, and the end goal of overthrowing Ozpin, as per her superior Salem's wishes.Vol. 3, Ch. 7 She leads a team with Mercury and Emerald and is Torchwick and Neo's superior. In Volume 3, Cinder kills the Fall Maiden and claims her power. She also supposedly killed Ozpin and is responsible for killing Pyrrha, but is later engulfed in the light caused by Ruby unleashing more.

She's one of the antagonists of RWBY and is the main reason why Beacon fell. However, we don't how she became this way, why she desires power or her reason why she hates humanity.

I hope she gets a backstory in either volume 7 or a character short. She's my favourite character and she really deserves a backstory.

2 Ozpin Ozpin was the headmaster of Beacon Academy. Ozpin is introduced in "Ruby Rose", inquiring of Ruby Rose about where she learned how to fight, her future goals, and her desire to join his school. He is frequently seen with his cane despite having no visible motor impairment. In "End of the Beginning", Ozpin's body was killed after his battle with the newly ascended Fall Maiden, Cinder Fall.

I have a strong feeling that Volume 5 will have a lot of focus on Oscar, which will lead to learning more about Ozpin himself.

Also I'm certain he's the wizard from the four maidens story. That would explain why he's in Oscar after he "died".

There's more questions about this guy than answers. What exactly is he? What's his power? Why does Salem hate him?

3 Nora Valkyrie

I loved her little bit with Ren and how they met but what about her life before? Parents? Siblings? How she became an orphan?

4 Salem

Salem is the main antagonist and I want to see how she became this way. There's been many theories about her identity and what she has against humanity. So let's see more of this amazing woman!

5 Mercury Black Mercury Black is an antagonist in RWBY. He is an associate of Cinder Fall and partner of Emerald Sustrai.

He didn't speak one line in Volume 4. Which was strange to me because he tends to run his mouth.

He had daddy issues and was trained to be an assassin. That's about it.

6 Emerald Sustrai

She was a street rat and used her semblance to steal. She joined Cinder because she had no where else to go. Why did become this way though?

One of my favorites

7 Sun Wukong

He's funny and caring to the people in his life. Yet I don't really know how he came to be that way or why he left his family and friends to check on Blake. Is there a reason? Does his family care?

Sun is best girl.

8 Adam Taurus

Yeah, this guy is evil and what he did to Blake and Yang was horrendous. But Blake said he slowly became worse and worse. Why was he becoming this way? Did something happen? Did him and Blake ever date at all?

We need more Adam! I don't care about others who despises him but I love this guy. I really want to know more about him and Blake's relationship.

I think he's a jerk but I agree I would like to know more about him

9 Neopolitan

Such an amazing badass! I love how they turned a disabled character into such a cool, stylish, b****! She was shop lifting before she was eighteen, and for a mute character, she has so much personality! I'm being her for Halloween and I'm SO excited for her to be one of the main antagonists in volume 9! Fun fact: Neo is the ONLY person in the ENTIRE SHOW to have never failed a mission, plus still has time for personal payback! GO NEOPOLITAN!

When I thought she was mute, someone told me that they have a voice planned for she's going to come back at some point.

She never even speaks! Yet she's so pretty and cool!

10 Winter Schnee

I love the Schnee sisters and I feel sorry for them. There dad is a complete jerk and their younger brother is following in his footsteps. Hints have also been given that their mom was an alcoholic too. I would like to see more of Winter and her backstory.

Winter is perfect for the most part, she has her amazing fighting skills, amazing personality, need I say more?

Weiss is going after Winter next volume, hopefully she won't be in like 1-2 episodes and has more screen time.

The Contenders
11 Velvet Scarlatina

She's a cute character that the fans have warmed up to. The fans even got to pick her own outfit through an art submission contest and her powers is pretty cool. Now let's see more of her!

She is very kind, cute, and her semblance is amazing!

Her weapon though!

12 Summer Rose

Definitely want to see more of her whether it be in flashbacks or even visions/dreams. I feel like we all know a decent amount about the rest of the rwby characters but summer still remains a mystery.

I want to see flashbacks of her.

We need her flashbacks. True.

13 Taiyang Xiao Long

Dad of the Year

14 Coco Adel

So stylish and cool!

15 Raven Branwen

Interesting theory, but if she was, how come Yang isn't a Faunus? Well, we don't know if being a Faunus is a dominant trait, or not. But still, interesting theory.

16 Glynda Goodwitch

The prettiest character, by far. She has one of the coolest semblances, by far. She's got a really great outfit, by far. Are there any more "by far" that I have to say?

17 Zwei
18 Pyrrha Nikos

If she comes back in volume 7, I want to see her turn Penny into dimes.

Pyrrha had so much potential. She really could have gone far.

19 Qrow Branwen
20 Weiss Schnee Weiss Schnee is a former student of Beacon Academy and one of the main protagonists of RWBY. Her weapon of choice is a Multi Action Dust Rapier (MADR) named Myrtenaster. The former heiress of the vastly influential Schnee Dust Company, Weiss made her first appearance in the "White" Trailer. After enrolling in Beacon against the wishes of her father, she becomes a member of Team RWBY alongside Ruby Rose, Blake Belladonna and Yang Xiao Long.
21 Ruby Rose

She is the main character! She has a team! Let her be with all of it! also when was the last time she and blake spoke, or yang, she and yang are sisters, and yang isn't being her sister at all! (can you tell I don't like yang) and blake is her friend! actually I can't remember the last time they all worked together as a team.

22 Oscar Pine
23 Neptune Vasilias
24 Lie Ren A black-haired student at Beacon who dual wields machine pistols with attached blades, collectively called StormFlower. His Semblance allows him and his targets to avoid detection from Grimm. Ren lost his parents during a Grimm attack on Kuroyuri, the village he lived in.Vol. 4, Ch. 10 He and Nora are long-time friends, though he is the exact opposite of her, as he is mostly quiet, mellow and mature.Vol. 1 In the end of Volume 3, Ren goes with Ruby, Jaune and Nora to Haven.Vol. 3, Ch. 12 In Volume 4, he has grown out his hair so it now reaches his waist.Vol. 4 In the finale, he avenges his parents by killing the Nuckelavee that destroyed his home.Vol. 4, Ch. 12
25 Bartholomew Oobleck Dr. Bartholomew Oobleck is a teacher at Beacon Academy. He is first seen in "Jaunedice, Pt.2" teaching history to the students, specifically teaching about the war between the Humans and the Faunus, which appears to have taken place a few generations before the start of the series. He is also shown to be more of an intellectual than a fighter through his actions on the battlefield in "Search and Destroy". Despite this, he still wields a weapon, which takes the form of his thermos, shown in the episode "Mountain Glenn".
