[[quoteright:225:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/957c0906c815878358c606b79b447e7c.jpg]]

->Voiced by: Creator/MikakoTakahashi (Japanese), Brenna O'Brien (English), Creator/HoukoKuwashima (drama CD)

An Edel Raid and direct descendant of the Metherlence bloodline. She is also one of the Seven Glittering Jewels (or Shichikouhouju), an Edel Raid line said to be the strongest. Cou finds her in a coffin that was picked up as loot in a raid and they become partners after she reacts to him. Her goal is to go to Edel Garden. She recharges her powers by sleeping, which happens fairly often. Her elemental gelade is on her hair above her forehead. Her elemental power is wind. Her weapon form is a giant sword on Cou's right arm.
----
* AllOfTheOtherReindeer: In the manga, her status of Shichikouhouju lead to her being bullied by other younger Edel Raids to such an extent that she would harm herself trying to remove her Gelade.
* BeautifulDreamer: Always.
* BewareTheQuietOnes
* BlowYouAway: She commands the element of wind, both offensively and defensively.
* TheChick: She's the demure and feminine girl in the group who constantly has to be protected by her teammates and although she can turn into a weapon, she can't fight directly so she has to take a supportive role for the team.
* ClingyJealousGirl: She's not happy to see Cou and Viro together and gives him the cold shoulder afterwards.
* TheComicallySerious
* DamselInDistress: She's frequently rendered helpless and/or kidnapped and needs Cou to rescue her.
* DefrostingIceQueen: In the beginning of the show she's an EmotionlessGirl who hates Coud because he's a human, but later she starts falling in love with him and warms up.
* DoesNotLikeSpam: She dislikes sweet food.
* ElegantGothicLolita
* EmotionlessGirl: At the start of the series, she's extremely cold and doesn't display any strong emotion which makes her come off as mysterious and unsettling. She later starts to show more emotions thanks to Cou.
* EquippableAlly: She's an Edel Raid, girls who can bind their soul with their Pledger and turn into a weapon.
* FirstGirlWins
* GirlInABox: She makes her debut in the series when she's found by Cou in a dusty coffin-like box that the Red Lynx sky pirates stole in one of their routine raids.
* GreenEyes
* HairDecorations: Her ribbon, which covers her Elemental Gelade in her forehead.
* InterspeciesRomance: With Cou.
* LightEmUp: Isolate Luminous, a technique that uses light to blind the enemy.
* MacGuffinGirl: Her status as the Shichikouhouju, which makes her a valuable weapon sought after by many.
* MagicalGirlfriend
* MementoMacGuffin: In the manga, her ribbon was given to her by a woman called Sha from her childhood. Sha gave Ren the ribbon to hide her elemental gelade, instead of wearing a hood that made Ren hang her head all the time and look sad. Sha stated that the ribbon was "cuter" and tied it around Ren's head herself when she first gave it to her.
* MysticalWaif: She's a Shichikouhouju, one of the most powerful and legendary Edel Raids. Of course this means that everyone wants their hands on her. She's frequently rendered helpless and constantly protected by the main character. Personality-wise, she fits the mysterious and distant part.
* PhlebotinumGirl: Female love interest with non-human origins and special powers that make other characters seek to possess her, which initially depresses her and makes her detest humans. She's also physically frail and frequently weakened by the use of her abilities.
* TheQuietOne: She isn't the most talkative person around.
* RapunzelHair: She has waist length hair.
* ReiAyanamiExpy: Blue hair? Check. Pale skin? Check. Quiet and deeply emotionless demeanor? Check. Not exactly human? Check. MysticalWaif? Check. Weak physical condition with a recurring need to be looked after? Check. Defrosting love interest? ''Double'' check. Her name is even one letter apart from Rei.
* ShyBlueHairedGirl: Demure and quiet, as expected from a blue-haired girl.
* SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan: Cou wins Ren's heart because he's a kind-hearted and protective guy who truly cares about her as a person, not a mere weapon.
* {{Sleepyhead}}: Justified. She recharges her powers by sleeping, so she spends most of her time nodding off.
* SomeCallMeTim: Her full name is Reverie Metherlence, she prefers to be simply called Ren because she hates long names.
* TheStoic: She has the same cold, melancholic look in her face nearly all the time.
* SugarAndIcePersonality: She's stoic, distant and quiet to the point of coming across as emotionless, yet she's also a really kind girl who cares a lot for those close to her.
* TookALevelInCheerfulness: Starts out as an EmotionlessGirl, but begins to show more emotion as the series goes on.
* TownGirls: The Femme to Cisqua's Butch and Kuea's Neither.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair

A first class Edel Raid from Arc Aile and Rowen's partner. Her garnet red elemental gelade are on the back of both her hands which she covers with arm length gloves.

Her attacks are designed for piercing over slicing.
