During the magic competition, another competitor tries to push Rumia into quitting, however, she confidently stands her ground, showing she wont back down easily. She contrasts Sistine's hostile-but-weak personality, and unlike Sistine, who is very mean and violent towards Glenn, but is kind and friendly towards everyone else, and is never afraid to scold him, Rumia is very caring, simple minded, wise, and gentle towards everyone and treats everyone equally. She also supports Sistine and knows how she is feeling. when Sistine was angrily scolding Glenn, and then Rumia gently tugged her sleeve to calm her down.
Throughout the anime version, Rumia is seen using various types of magic, Its likely that she can use the same basic magic as the other students, however she is seen using unusual magic that no other students possess. One of the powers is Amplification. This ability allows Rumia to increase the power levels of anyone she wants. The other magic we see Rumia using is Mind Up, this allows her to alter her mind set, meaning she can stay focused more easily.

It is implied that Alicia loves her daughter very much, but hides it in front of the public, in fear of exposing her true identity.
- Sistine Fibel
Rumia and Sistine have been best friends ever since Rumia was banished from her home three years ago. Initially, they didn't get along when Rumia moved into the Fibel House but over time became close friends who seem to be like sisters, as Rumia affectionately gives Sistine the nickname "Sisti".
As Rumia was adopted into the Fibel family, this makes her the older adoptive sister of Sistine.
Alzano Imperial Magic Academy Edit
- Glenn Radars
During Glenn's time in the Imperial Army, he was begged and tasked by Queen Alicia to save her daughter from a group of evil mages who kidnapped her. After he saved her, Glenn told the crying girl that even if the world was against her, he would stand by her side. Ever since that day, Rumia became greatly inspired by Glenn as she believed him to able to lead humans down the right path of magic.
When they met again, Glenn vaguely recognized her as she immediately remembered him though they never got the chance to talk since Sistine interrupted them. However, Rumia was shocked that Glenn was their new teacher but was too lazy to instruct the class on anything. When Glenn helped her with a spell, she was grateful encouraged him to keep being a teacher by relaying a tale from when she was saved and being very thankful towards the mage who rescued her.
Because of her words, Glenn was inspired to act like a real instructor as he apologized to Sistine for hurting her feelings and taught his class new ways to use magic while Rumia was happy at this change in his ways.
Unlike Sistine, who is usually strict and mean towards Glenn; Rumia is much kinder and somewhat affectionate to him as she knows he possesses a good heart and is really an outgoing mage. Likewise, Glenn treats Rumia better than Sistine as he gave her less books to carry than her after they offered help and when he ignored Sistine's request for help but kindly helped Rumia. When this treatment was brought up to him by Sistine, he mentioned Rumia was cute and sweet while she was cheeky as Rumia was amused to see this.
Glenn has great faith in Rumia's skill as he put her in mind spell endurance game in the tournament as he knew she could handle the event and was impressed by her courage at holding out.
She also seems to have some affection and care for him, since she always get worried when matters concerning her put him in jeopardy. One instance being when he saved her from Huey Lysen, her old teacher who was a criminal mole that had her trapped but Glenn risked his life to save her and was successful. He later risked being a marked traitor to the kingdom to protect her from execution at the queen's guards and stopped at nothing to keep her out of harm's way. Later on, after Rumia is saved and all problems against her were dropped, she thanks Glenn and reveals she knows it was really him who saved her while he shrugged this off as she rested on his shoulder out of thanks.
