Reina Akatsuki (暁 零菜 Akatsuki Reina) is the daughter of Kojou Akatsuki and Yukina Himeragi who was sent 20 years back to the past by Moegi Akatsuki to chase a manmade magical beast.

Appearance

Reina with Kojou Akatsuki

Reina bears a great resemblance to Yukina Himeragi, but there are a handful of differences as well:

  • Her hair is pure black as opposed to her mother's dark brown hair, she is taller and she has a larger bust, though it's unspecified if these last two differences are due or not to Reina having travelled back in time up to when her mother was one year younger than her.
  • She has blue eyes like her father while retaining her father's red eyes when she gets excited.

Personality

Reina's red eyes whenever she gets excited or urges.

Despite the similar appearance, Reina is very different from Yukina Himeragi. When she first appears she's shown to be rather ditzy: she attempts to walk into a door because she thought it was automated, and makes various comments about the younger versions of people she knows, apparently without realizing that, by doing this, she would have just blown her cover. Besides this she is mostly friendly and not overly serious. She like her father have an afinity for nosebleeds and this so happens when they're either sexually aroused, or when excited gazing upon beautiful people.

However Reina case is different. When Reina saw Asagi Aiba (Reina's step-mother) in her youth, she became overwhelmed by her beauty that when she started describing her physical attributes that, all the thoughts that accumulated inside her became too much and it lead her to bleed from the nose.
