    This great Huntress was Ruby's late mother.

    The name on the stone in the "Red" trailer.

    There is a lot of speculation on who Summer Rose is. I would love to hear your opinions.

    Dangit, somebody beat me to making the thread.

    My interest in Summer Rose has grown quite a bit, probably because I saw a bunch of headcanons for her then started to make my own. ._.
    But yeah, I feel like Red Like Roses Part II confirmed Summer is indeed Ruby's mother, and she died trying to protect someone else ("You're not the only one that needed me, I thought you understood."), or she died trying to complete some unforeseen goal we don't know about yet.

    Well, obviously, she was part of Ruby's family or related to Ruby in some form of relationship. She could be Ruby's sister or mother. She could also be the person Ruby looked up to, enough to take on her name. Thus changing her name from Ruby Xiao Long to Ruby Rose. This can also explain Monty's subtlety over Yang and Ruby's sibling relationship.

    I'm not entirely sure that RLR2 confirms that Summer Rose is Ruby's mother. Yes, it speaks about who is presumed to be Ruby talking in anguish to who is presumed to be Summer Rose, but can really assume that just based on what they're saying? Especially since what we've seen so far in the show hasn't shown Ruby to be a desperate, sorrowful girl like the one that's singing in RLR2.

    In Red Like Roses part one it says, "...and brings me to the place you rest." This may be Ruby talking about going to her mother's grave. Also, in the intro of each episode there is the white hood. I think that Summer Rose is Ruby's deceased mother. But i may be wrong

    This is the common theory among most people that have watched RWBY. I'm honestly surprised that this thread didn't exist before hand. There's been a lot of discussion on Summer Rose in the Theories thread in the General Discussion section as well as a number of different theory focused threads in that section.

    It might take a while, but it might be worthwhile to summarize the theories about Summer Rose in those threads here, or just quote them here for a consolidated thread focused on Summer.

    I kinda got 'motherly' vibes off of Summer's part in RLR part 2. The way she was wording things, not wanting Ruby to waste her life in vain... Idk.
    Also I suspect the song Gold is Yang's response to RLR2. For all we know RLR2 was something from the past, and Ruby has moved on through help from Yang.
