A young woman from a distant world who appears in one of many tales about the ocean of stars. Rena is a kind soul with a strong heart whose idealistic side has lead her to believe that a young man named Claude, who suddenly appeared from a different planet, is the legendary Hero of Light. Having learned that she was discovered as a babe in the Sacred Forest with the pendant she always wears, Rena decides to set off on a journey with Claude to learn more about herself and her biological parents.
Rena Lanford is one of the main protagonists of the Star Ocean series, being the deuteragonist of its second installment, Star Ocean: The Second Story. A Nedian mage from the planet Expel, the mystery of her origins motivates her to go on a interplanetary adventure with her co-protagonist, Claude C. Kenny.
Rena is a 18-year-old girl with short blue hair and eyes and pointy ears. She isn't human but a Nedian.
Rena is a kind, young woman with a vivid imagination and a idealistic side, believing in the prophecy of the legendary "Hero of Light". Still, despite being quite the dreamer, she is able to focus on the task at hand and face the enemy when needed. She is extremely fond of the Sacred Forest found near the village of Arlia, where she was raised, and visits that place almost daily. She also loves cute objects and harbors a distaste of things that are "not very cute".
Rena is a summonable vision and optional playable character. She is a limited-time 5-7★ Rare Summon obtainable during the raid event Vanquish Jie Revorse! (which originally ran from July 27 to August 9, 2018 in the Global version) and its rerun (which ran in January 2019), in which she got her 7★ awakening. Her job is listed as Healer and her roles are Healing, Magic Damage and Support. She has no innate element or status ailment resistances.
Her Trust Master is the fist Knuckles of Hope (ATK+20, SPR+110, MP +30%), which grants Auto-Refresh to the equipped unit. Her Super Trust Master reward is the Shortcake accessory (SPR+54, SPR +10%), which nullifies all status ailments and grants the passive Well-Fed (recovers MP by 5% per turn and increases the Limit gauge by 2 per turn).
Her awakening materials are the following:
- 6★ - Rainbow Bloom x20, Fairies' Writ x10, Prismatic Horn x10, Calamity Writ x5, Divine Crystal x5
- 7★ - Rena's Prism x1
Rena's stats at her highest levels are as follows (with no passive abilities taken into account), along with the maximum amount of stat points that can be increased through pot-enhancements:
Rena has four ability slots. She has no magic affinity.
|Descendant of Nede||Passive||72|
|Martial Arts Knowledge||Passive||1||Resist: Paralyze (100%).|
|Time Traveler||Passive||101||Trust ability.|
|Fix Cloud||Special||110||Cooldown: 4 turns.|

|Mother's Protection||Special||110||Cooldown: 6 turns.|

- Limit Burst
Angel Feather (エンゼルフェザー, Enzeru Fezā?) is Rena's Limit Burst. A healing-type ability, it removes stat reductions from the party, increases their ATK, DEF, MAG and SPR, and grants them Regen and Refresh. All three effects will last for three turns. Depending on Rena's rarity, the las two effects will have different modifiers: the Limit Burst will recover (3000 HP, 10x) and (120 MP, 0.3x) at 5★, whereas it will recover (3000 HP, 15x) and (120 MP, 0.5x) at 6★, and finally it recoves (3000 HP, 25x) and (120 MP, 0.7x) at 7★.
Its regen effect will depend on the following formula:
- $ (Skill Base Healing / Amount of Turns) + (0.5 * Rena's SPR + 0.1 * Rena's MAG) * (Skill $
- $ Modifier / Amount of Turns) $
How much the party's stats increase will depend on Rena's LB level:
She can equip accessories.
Equipping her Trust Master reward (the Knuckles of Hope) will trigger her Trust ability "Time Traveler". It increases Rena's SPR and MP by 40%, decreases her chances of being targeted by 30%, and increase her LB gauge fill rate by 50%.
