Nolan Porfirio is a character on RWBY, a member of Team BRNZ. Nolan and his team fight against Team JNPR as part of the Vytal Festival Tournament in the episode "New Challengers...". He is voiced by Aaron Marquis.


Nolan is a teenage boy with messy dark red hair and pink eyes.

He wears a deep sky blue jacket with a black hood and rolled up black sleeves, open over a white shirt with long, rolled up sleeves. A pair of sunglasses with pink lenses hang from his collar. He also wears a pair of ripped burgundy jeans, black shoes and black finger-less gloves.

Powers and abilitiesEdit

Nolan's weapon is a cattle prod or electrified baton, which he is skilled enough with to briefly incapacitate Lie Ren. He also has enough Aura to take a direct hit from Nora Valkyrie, who he had just charged up with his cattle prod, and another indirect hit from Nora without his Aura dropping below 15%.


Nolan and his team are students at Shade Academy, from the kingdom of Vacuo. He and his team journeyed to participate in the 40th Vytal Festival combat tournament, hosted by the kingdom of Vale. Nolan and his team were defeated by Team JNPR of Vale's Beacon Academy in the team round of the tournament.

In "It's Brawl in the Family", he is seen briefly in the stadium talking to Bolin Hori. In "Destiny", he is seen talking to Brawnz Ni while Sun Wukong is posing for a photo shoot.
