Imperial Court Mage Corps
Re=L Rayford (リィエル＝レイフォード Ryieru Reifōdo?) is one of the main heroines of the Akashic Records of Bastard Magic Instructor series. She's an execution officer from the Imperial Court Mage Corps and an old comrade of Glenn Radars. She is the current holder of "The Chariot" card.
Before Re=L became an artificial human, she had red hair and red eyes similar to her brother Shion before becoming an artificial human. She usually wore a light-brown cloak to cover her identity.
After becoming an artificial human, Re=L's appearance transformed the color of her eyes and hair. She has ocean blue eyes and disheveled, shoulder length sapphire-blue hair. She is seen wearing the standard uniform of the imperial court magicians. After joining the Imperial Academy she wears the school uniform.
In the beginning Re=L seemed to be a serious and emotionless girl, bearing a grudge for Glenn for abandoning her without a word. In reality she is a shy and lacking in social experience girl because of her past and her working for the military. Because of that, she alienated herself from all of the students after joining Glenn's class in the imperial academy. Sistine and Rumia helped her adjust to her new life and she managed to befriend her classmates.
She has an enormous sweet tooth for strawberry tarts, preffering them over any other food. She will eat every single tart she can get her hands on.
She is very simple-minded when it comes to combat. Her primary and prefered tactic is to run into the enemy from the front, which she suggests a lot when seen in the beginning. Even though she lacks strategic skills, she has mastered sword-fighting and alchemy magic (mainly used to create more swords) making her a dangerous foe who underestimated.
According to Glenn, even though she is similar age as Sistine and Rumia when it comes to physical appearance, mentally she is still a child.
Her name, Re=L, stands for Project Revive Life. Her name was given to her by Rainer. She is a clone of her original self, Ilushia. While Ilushia has red hair, Re=L has blue hair. Her brother died when he attempted to convince Rainer to leave the organization. Unfortunately, Rainer, in return killed Sion and mortally wounded Ilushia. Glenn then saved Re=L and escaped with her, while Ilushia died.
Glenn Radars Edit
Re=L seems to share affection for Glenn, even though she tried to attack him multiple times, and almost killed him.
Sistine Fibel Edit
When Re=L was first introducted into Glenn's class and proceeded to alienate herself, she and Rumia were the first people to come to her and ask to go out to eat together. Even though she considered her a friend, she hated her because she thought that both of the girls have taken Glenn away from her, causing her to kill glenn and taking an unconscious Rumia to the evil mage organization. After helping Glenn fight off her clonesand free Rumia, she apologized to her and RumiaSistine for her bad deeds. Currently both are very close friends.

Since Shion is Re=L's brother, she has a very close relationship with him, and is willing to do anything for him. When the evil mage organization used Rainer that looked similar to Shion to trick and convince Re=L to kill Glenn because he was an obstale for their plans, she did it without much hesitation.
