Emerald Sustrai is an associate of Cinder Fall and a partner of Mercury Black. She initially appears to be affable and disarmingly friendly, however, this belies a darker side of her character. On the whole, she seems to be genuinely outgoing and quick-witted, if a little short-fused. She has a tendency to maintain a pretense of friendliness amongst people in order to gain their trust, and shows a strong sense of loyalty, specifically to Cinder, whom she appears incredibly eager to please.

- Emerald's Weapons - A pair of convertible revolver-sickles with jungle-green grips, each stored inside their own separate leather casings on a belt wrapped around Emerald's waist. By default, they are a pair of revolvers that fire incredibly fast, enough to clear out hordes of Grimm before any of them can move. Emerald can then deploy blades to fight in melee combat, or instead extend them using chains attached to her respective handles like kusarigamas to fight from mid-range. The chain portion is shown to have a surprisingly long reach, as she was able to ensnare and drag Coco Adel a fairly long distance. When folded up against the revolvers, the blades telescope into themselves.
- Semblance - Emerald's supposed semblance appears to be perception manipulation - the ability to modify the sensory information in a person's head while their brain is processing it. In short she can make one, or multiple individuals simultaneously, see and hear things that aren't necessarily there. Her power is however shown to have its limits. Whilst she seems capable of controlling a single mind, controlling any more than that seems to tax her own head severely. After playing an illusion on two medics who came to pick up Mercury, so they wouldn't see his mechanical legs, she was shown to have a considerable headache. It's unknown what the consequences of manipulating any more would do to her mind.
