Lei (レイ Rei (Lei) in the Japanese version) is a playable character in Fire Emblem: Abstract Requiem and is encountered as a playable unit in all routes of the game.
Lei was born in the Theocracy of Shikea and brought up in a convent. There, she discovered her passion for dancing and practiced to perform ritual dances to the Light Dragon, Lumenne. After completing her training, she was sent to the small country of Del Sagnes to start helping the needy on the street. It is there where she met Renard when he saved her from a group of bandits and joined him on his quest to protect the common people from criminals and the corrupted noblemen alike. Soon, she came to be one of his most trusted vassals along with Emilis She is the one who takes the longest baths in the army.
In the Sacrue Route, the player meets up with Renard and his vassals. While they are all friendly and do not attack the player's army, Renard and Emilis refuse to join the player's ranks as they do not want to ally themselves with Sacrue. Lei, however, does not mind and offers her services, which Renard accepts. She sees joining the player's side of the Sacruean army as a useful thing as she can help recover some of the religious relics that the rest of the Sacruean army pillaged throughout the war and return them to their rightful places once more.
When the player meets Renard for the 2nd time, Renard decides to join the Vlasaic army due to Vlasais' alliance with Del Sagnes, and hopes to protect his homeland as well as Vlasais. Lei and Emilis join with him, as they are in his service and thus join the army as a whole.
In the Al Marxia Route, Lei appears once again with Renard and Emilis. However, since Renard's group has been on friendly terms and thus allied with the player's army in Al Marxia, they have become a target for the Sacruean snipers. After their 6th meeting with the group, a Sacruean sniper attacks the group from the trees after Renard's group supplied the army with new weapons and gold. Emilis dies saving Renard as he knocks out the sniper with magic, causing a distraught Renard to join the Al Marxian army to avenge his friend and vassal. Lei also joins with Renard to avenge Emilis and since she has nowhere else left to go, since Shikea has been recently annexed by Sacrue at that point.
Lei is a rather quiet individual, who does not really open up to many people except Renard and Emilis. Being friends with and working with them for many seven years, they are the ones she trusts the most. She is perfectly capable of holding a conversation and talking to others, but she simply prefers not to. Her loyalty to Renard knows no bounds and she enjoys his company the most. She is compassionate and would rather see peace than fighting. However, she has accepted that violence will always exist and instead works to comfort those who have lost others in conflict. She is very dedicated to her religion and prays to the Light Dragon for protection. These are especially prevalent in her supports.
Lei's personal skill is Quick Feet, meaning that she gains a passive +4 boost to speed whenever the enemy initiates the battle. this makes her much better at double-attacking and dodging on the enemy phase.
