Reiri is headstrong, flirtatious, seductive, level headed, carefree, passionate, teasing, and desirable. She is quite clever as she and Princess are usually the first to understand the situation. She is often seen smiling and is quite playful as shown by her teasing of Hiro, much to Riza's annoyance. She hates oceans, rivers and lakes like all vampires as stated by her before almost drowning in a lake. She also seem to have a guilty conscience when she abandons Princess and the others, which is not common for vampires. She also speaks in a playful tone as a music note is often shown when she is happy. Reiri is not always calm and collected, as when she is handcuffed to Riza after Riza lost the keys to the cuffs, she became highly annoyed.
Main Article: Hiro Hiyorimi
She first seduces him when she is trying to get Hime's blood. After the incident, she is shown licking Hiro's neck, saying they should play again another night. She constantly teases Hiro, much to his dismay (and other students's jealousy) after she got closer to Hime's company.
Main Article: Hime
Reiri calls her Hime-sama after losing to Hime. She helps Hime during their battle with Gilliam. Hime doesn't seem not to mind her free-loading in her mansion.
Later on, she fights along side Hime against Gilliam in the battle on the Emil's train. Gilliam tells Hime that Reiri would one day betray her. Despite so, Hime remains undeterred and trusts Reiri. Reiri is often seen abandoning the group when things turn dire, only to show up later on with back-up or helpful information. Emil's blood-warrior comments that it is the first time he has seen a royal trust a vampire as they are known for back-stabbing the royals for their blood.
Main Article: Riza Wildman
From the first time they met, Reiri and Riza began fighting. Their relationship seems to have improved after Kiniski's incident; although Reiri still calls Riza "dog," and "bitch." Riza, despite the hatred and annoyance she displays, respects Reiri's strength and says that the pure-blood vampire she fought in the manga when they were in prison was not as cunning as Reiri. Both have been seen helping each other; like when Riza helped Reiri out of the water, and when they fought together against Kiniski.
Main Article: Flandre
Reiri and Flandre will work together to assist Hime and have cooperated very well on several occasions. Unlike Riza, Reiri adores Flandre very much.
Main Article: Sherwood
Reiri has a strained relationship with Sherwood. In the beginning Sherwood did not trust Reiri at all and Reiri would only assist Sherwood because of Hime's orders. However as the series progressed their relationship eased down a bit and are now in a mutual cooperative understanding.
Main Article: Zeppeli
They remain on a mutual cooperative understanding with each other, though the two of them seemed displeased when the other shows up in the middle of a plot. She does not interfere with his business (initially) and he does the same. When he died she did not show any reaction.
In chapter 85 it is shown she has a female vampire friend called Greta.
Powers & Abilities
As a pureblooded vampire, she is stronger than most vampire, and doesn't have as many weaknesses as some of the other vampires. She is also quite adapted at hand-to-hand combat, during which she delivers devastating kicks. Reiri can also fly at considerable speed, keeping up with cars and trains without trouble. Her strength level is not shown clearly, although: in the anime she has being shown being able to resist Riza shoving her with ease; in the manga she was able to pin down Sledge in flight and stand toe-to-toe against pure-blood werewolves; in the OVA she ripped a True Dark Walker in two (vertically). She also has mind-controlling powers (it only work against weaker opponents). Reiri can talk to bats and order them to spy for her. She can turn herself into a flock of bats in order to evade attacks and confuse the enemy. She possesses considerable regeneration, being able to reattach severed limbs.
She apparently knows German.
- Flight: She can fly to the sky and use it to see the city.
- Transformation: She transforming into bats in order to escape in dangerous situations.
- Mind Control: She can control any person, but it can't work if the victim is far in her. She must have an eye to eye contact to the target.
- Animal Communication: Using the bats, she can track down her target
- Crescent Moon Boost: When the moon is in crescent form, her vampire abilities will increase.
Although Reiri is a pure-blooded vampire and isn't repulsed by garlic, crosses or sunlight, she still is afraid of water and can be killed by driving a white ash stake through her heart. Also barriers set up by divine beings (such as those of the evil gods) repels her. While sunlight does not harm her it does weaken and disorient her. In the anime, if restrained (via ropes, hands, etc.), she cannot turn into bats. However this doesn't happen in the OVA. In the manga this weakness is shown inconsistently. She can still fall under mind-control by stronger opponents.
Also, like the vampires of legend, she cannot enter a building unless she is invited in (even if the building is abandoned and has no owner/inhabitants), although she can set the building on fire to flush the inhabitants out (which she did, in the manga).
Reiri is apparently lethargic if woken up early in the morning.
Her range of weapons include wooden stakes and a jackhammer.
- Wooden Stakes: She using this weapon to stab her enemies especially when her enemy is low class vampires (white ash wood).
Manga and OVA
When Reiri first appeared, she is apparently the idol of the school. She first talk to Hiro and zips up his open fly. She then ask him what is his name. While walking away, she fell saying the cursed sun shone on her. She then call Hiro to the top of the school building at night. Riza arrives then get into a fight with Reiri but is too late. Reiri has already seduced Hiro by sucking his blood. She turns Hiro into a vampire, trying to use him to get Hime's blood. After escaping Riza, Reiri go back to sleep inside her coffin. Moments later, Hime opens the coffin, much to the surprise of Reiri. Hime let the vampire-Hiro bite her in order to turn into a temporary vampire to find Reiri. She also states that the blood of a phoenix is stronger than a vampire and was able to overpower the enslaving effect of a vampire bite. Hime place a white ash stake on Reiri's chest, ready to kill her, which led Reiri into admitting defeat and saying that it wouldn't be so bad getting killed by Hime. Hime spared her and took some of Reiri's blood to cure Hiro. (In the anime, she tried to get Hime's blood by seducing Hiro and turning him into a vampire so he could invite her into the mansion. She then battled Hime, and, when thinking she had the upper hand, lowered her guard and was captured by Flandre. She was then given two options by Hime: serve her or die. Reiri then decided to serve her.) After five days, Reiri is shown back at school and licking Hiro's neck to the amazement (and jealousy) of other students, telling Hiro that they should play together another night.
Another Reiri is shown when an alternate Hime was transported 9 years into the future, she saves and assists Hime momentarily from the monster attacking her and was about to share the details about the bomb explosion nine years ago before she was attacked and subsequently killed by the same monster.

After class she was seen sitting in the rooftop of the school and say "Our time was finally come". Later she call Hiro to meet her on the school tonight. When Hiro arrived she control him and then bite him in the neck. Several minutes after she bite Hiro, Riza came and they start talking and mocking each other.
After the conversation they start the fight. She order Hiro to go home and let her in the mansion and when she try to fly to the mansion Riza grab her feet but she was lucky because that night the moon is cresent and her Vampire Abilities is increasing so she easily toss Riza.
In the mansion her plan work she able to come to the house and reveal her true motive, to suck the blood of Hime. In their fierce fight when she tought that she winning she let her guard down and surprise when she see Flandre catch her. While Flandre keep holding her she see Hime holding a Wooden stake made on ashwood and then when she finally surrender and accepting her fate to die Hime spare her life.
She tell Hime that Vampires is not making an agreement to anyone but Hime tell her that she know and then she see her leave. In the last scene when she go to school a group of guys want her to unzipped their zipper but she just passed them and went straight to Hiro and tease him.
