Re=L was created by Project: Revive Life developed by Researchers of Divine Wisdom's Sion Rayford and Rainer Layer, where she was designed and structured based on the genetic code of Ilushia Rayford, Sion's younger sister. However, being aware of the risk, Sion seeked help from Glenn Radars, a Imperial Court Mage Corps operative, to investigate as well as to promise the safety of both Rainer and Ilushia, which consequently led to his and Ilushia's end by his male partner.

Back in the laboratory, the copy known as Re=L was still contained and in a deep slumber. Some times after awakening, under unknown curcumstances, she joined the Imperial Court Mage Corps Special Force Special Missions Annex holding position #8, "The Chariot."


Re=L anime visual

Re=L Rayford's full appearance in the anime.

In appearance, Re=L is identical to her prime source, Ilushia Rayford, except with blue eyes and hair.

As an execution officer of the mage corps, she wears a long navy blue coat with a tucked green scarf held together by a golden pin, a dark browned corseted vest with golden buttons and a black and red vertical stripped skirt with navy blue tights. But after becoming a student of Alzano Imperial Magic Academy, she wears the academy's girls uniform: a blue blazor with a white golden button down shirt and white and blue hemmed skirt.


Re=L puts on a front of a serious and emotionless person, but in reality, she's just shy. Because of this, she alienated herself from all of the students after joining Alzano Imperial Magic Academy. But after befriending Sistine and Rumia and the rest of class 2-2 she gradually begins to open up.

Additionally, shown in her debut, she's very simple-minded when it comes to strategy. Her primary and preferred attack is to run into battle from the front. As a result, she either gets yanked by her hair or scolded by Glenn. Despite this, she's mastered sword-fighting and alchemy magic.




  • Her first name, Re=L, comes from "Re=L Plan", another name for Project: Revive Life while her family name adapts from Ilushia Rayford whose body she built from.
  • Her appearance is that of a 15-16 year old teenage girl, but her real age is unknown.
  • She can last three days without eating and has an enormous sweet tooth.
