Her father belonged to a prestigious and well-known family within Rigel, but he fell from grace after losing a power struggle. Her beauty is renowned throughout the Empire, and she became Berkut’s fiancée after the two had a romantic encounter. She is the only one capable of touching Berkut’s heart, and she loves Berkut dearly.
Though Berkut strives to become Rigel’s next Emperor and for Rinea to become his Empress, Rinea cares not for glory and would remain by Berkut’s side no matter what may come. This clash of ideals wounded Berkut’s self-esteem at the worst possible time, causing him to sacrifice her to Duma. Afterwards, her spirit reunited with Berkut’s, and she guided him towards a peaceful afterlife.
Rinea’s witch form, after she was offered as a live sacrifice at the Altar of Duma. Although her entire body is engulfed in flames, parts of her original identity remain, such as her unique hairstyle.
