— Lenna and her resolve to save the world, Final Fantasy V.

Lenna Charlotte Tycoon, also known as Reina, is a playable character in Final Fantasy V. Lenna is the daughter of King Tycoon, and the sister of the long-lost Sarisa. Lenna, though adventurous and brave, is also kind and gentle. She would (and does) gladly put herself at risk for the sake of others, and is sometimes a bit impulsive. She especially loves dragons and put herself in danger twice to save the life of a Wind Drake while she was a Warrior of Light.

Backstory

Along the way, Lenna risked her life two times to rescue Wind Drakes from death. The first time she walked across a poisonous field to give Hiryuu Dragon Grass to cure its injuries, and it healed her in gratitude. The second time, she had to take a bite of the plant to encourage Krile's wind drake to eat, though Dragon Grass is deadly to humans. Her affection and willingness to risk herself for the wind drakes can be explained by an incident in her past. When Lenna was a young girl, her mother became gravely ill and could only have been cured by the tongue of a wind drake. The only one left was Hiryuu, however, and both King and Queen Tycoon refused to kill it. Desperate, Lenna seized a knife and rushed off to cut Hiryuu's tongue, but Jenica stopped her and explained that it was not worth killing the dragon to save her mother. Queen Tycoon succumbed to her illness soon afterward. The painful experience taught Lenna the value of self-sacrifice. Her mother had loved the dragon and willingly accepted death to protect it.

Story

Lenna was the first of the new generation of the Warriors of Dawn. When the wind stopped, and her father disappeared after traveling to the Wind Shrine, Lenna went after him. She was waylaid by goblins on the way, but fortunately she was rescued by a passing wanderer named Bartz. She also met an amnesiac named Galuf, who despite his amnesia was just as determined as she was to protect the Wind Crystal and they teamed up. After another encounter with goblins, Bartz also joined them.

The meteor from which Galuf came blocked the way to the Wind Shrine, so the party was forced to find an alternative route. They discovered a pirate ship that moved without sails. Lenna suggested simply asking them for a ride, but Bartz disapproved, and the trio instead adopted Galuf's plan to simply steal it. Unfortunately, they were unable to get the ship under their control and were easily captured by the captain, Faris, and "his" crew. Lenna reveals that she is the princess and pleads with the pirates to take them to the Wind Shrine, but Faris' only response is to laugh and comment how much Tycoon's princess would be worth. But when Lenna reveals her pendant, Faris has a change of heart. They are then locked up for the night and released the next day, setting a course for the Wind Shrine--revealing that the ship is pulled by a water dragon called Syldra.

Upon arriving at the Wind Shrine, the party spots the King of Tycoon right before the crystal shatters. He names Bartz, Lenna, Faris and Galuf the Warriors of Light. Lenna was shocked and dismayed, but there was no time for mourning or searching. She had no other choice but to take up the quest to defeat Exdeath.

The party then travels to the town of Tule. Here Lenna enlists the help of Zok, an old friend of hers. She asks for the key to the Torna Canal. Though initially reluctant, after a discussion with Bartz while everyone else is sleeping, Zok gives in and decides to help them by giving them the key.

On the Torna Canal, the ship crashes due to a monster and Syldra is left for dead. The ship then drifts towards the Ship Graveyard. While there, Bartz and Galuf discover that Faris is a woman in disguise. When they reach the coastline, the party is hypnotized by Siren with the figure of their loved ones, but are saved by Galuf due to his memory loss and not realizing who Krile really is.

In need of a new method of transportation, the party climbs North Mountain in a attempt to relocate Hiryuu, Lenna's Wind Drake. A hunter named Magissa attacks Lenna, but the party fights her off. Afterwards, Lenna walks across the poisonous field to acquire Dragon Grass for Hiryuu and collapses. Hiryuu heals her injuries and the party flies off, despite Bartz's protest that he is afraid of heights. The party lands at the Castle of Walse, and head to the throne room. There, Lenna addresses the king, begging him to stop abusing the power of the Water Crystal. He refuses to listen due to how much Walse has prospered thanks to the crystal.

A meteor crashes nearby soon after. The party rushes to the tower where the crystal resides, and fight off a monster in an attempt to protect the Crystal. The Water Crystal shatters anyways, and the tower sinks. The party is rescued by Syldra, who carries them safely to shore. Syldra is then lost in the current, much to Faris's grief. The party then approaches the site where the Meteor fell and are transported to another Meteor site.

Arriving at Karnak, the party is arrested not long after their arrival. An old man in a cell next to them introduces himself as Cid and reveals his involvement with the crystals. The party is let free along with Cid not long afterwards, and enter the steamship nearby. The party will eventually make their way into the engine room of the steam ship, which seems to be overworking itself. There, they encounter the Queen of Karnak, who proceeds to attack them. It is revealed after defeating her that she was being possessed.

The party rushes to defend the Fire Crystal, but to no avail. The Fire Crystal shatters, and the party is forced to flee to safety.

The party then heads to the Ancient Library in pursuit of Cid. Encountering his grandson Mid, they fight off a monster that is attacking him. Mid then heads with them back to Karnak, where he knocks some sense into his grandfather.

King Tycoon is then spotted in the Quicksand Desert. The party heads there to look for him. With the help of Cid and Md, they are able to cross the desert and make their way to the Ruined City. When Faris spots the king, she calls him father, leading to a emotional, although brief reunion between her and Lenna as they were officially reunited as sisters. The party ends up under Crescent, where they encounter Cid and Mid once more.

Returning to the over world, the party locates the Earth Crystal in the flying ruins, a city floating in midair due to the power of the crystal. The party fights their way into it, defeating Soul Cannon with the help of Cid and his grandson. When the party reaches the top, they encounter King Tycoon. He does not appear to recognize either of his daughters and attacks the party, to the shock of Lenna and Faris. The encounter of another meteor, along with Galuf' granddaughter Krile, stop him from doing so. Krile then knocks him out with a spell. This brings back the king's memory and as he regains consciousness, he recognizes both of his daughters, calling them both by name. The happy reunion is cut short when the last of the crystals shatters, freeing the legendary sorcerer, Exdeath. The king tells his daughters to unite to fight Exdeath and asks Bartz to protect them before sacrificing himself to save the party.

Having escaped Exdeath for the time being, Galuf separates from the party and heads back to his own world with Krile to prepare for the upcoming battle against Exdeath. Utilizing the power of all three meteors, the remaining party was able to travel to Galuf's world. Before they are able to locate Galuf, Bartz, Lenna and Faris are captured by monsters and brought to Exdeath's Castle. There the party is used as bait to keep Galuf and his troops from entering the castle. Galuf enters on his own and rescues the party. They then escape together, fighting off Gilgamesh along the way.

Reunited, the party plans for the battle with Exdeath. Krile's Hiryuu is ill from helping the party, so to save the Wind Drake, the party heads to Drakenvale , to acquire Dragon Grass. The Wind Drake is reluctant to accept any, however, so Lenna tastes the Dragon Grass to encourage the Hiryuu to eat, despite Dragon Grass being deadly to humans. Krile then gives Lenna an Elixir to heal her.

Along the way the party encounters remaining Dawn Warriors, King Zeza and the werewolf Kelgar, both of whom are killed aiding the party. The party tracks down Exdeath in the Great Forest of Moore. They are attacked by Exdeath, who uses the power of the crystals against them. Krile's attempt to rescue them fails leading Galuf to fight off Exdeath by himself. He then falls in combat and transfers all of his powers on to Krile before dieing. The party continues onwards, infiltrating Exdeath's castle and supposedly killing him.

After Exdeath shattered the remaining crystals of the second world, the party blacked out and mysteriously found themselves back at Castle Tycoon. Here, Faris was welcomed back as Princess Sarisa, and a grand celebration was held to celebrate the return of the heiresses. Bartz, Krile, and eventually Faris all snuck off--the first two on a suspicion that something was wrong, and Faris because she didn't want to be a princess--leaving only Lenna behind when the castle was consumed by the return of the Void. Although the rest of the party believed that Lenna was dead, she was actually retrieved by Hiryuu from the Interdimensional Rift, but was possessed by a demon of the Rift named Melusine. Melusine forced Lenna to attack her friends, but the injured Hiryuu knocked her out and forced the hostile spirit to leave her body. After the demon was slain, Lenna recovered and rejoined the party for the remainder of the game.

After destroying Neo Exdeath, Lenna and Faris returned to Tycoon and ruled jointly for a time. However, Faris grew restless and abandoned the throne to rejoin the pirates, and Lenna became the Queen of Tycoon despite her younger age. Her direct descendant is Queen Lenna in Final Fantasy: Legend of the Crystals.

Personality

Lenna and Bartz

Lenna is almost the opposite of her sister in temperament: Lenna is Water, Faris is Fire; Lenna is gentle, Faris is brash; Lenna is altruistic, Faris is selfish; Lenna is feminine, Faris is tomboyish; Lenna is a princess, Faris is a pirate. Despite this, they are also very similar in some ways. Both are courageous and can act on impulse instead of thinking their actions through beforehand, and they share similar hair and eye coloring as well. Lenna and Faris love and protect each other on their quest.

Trouble with the audio sample?

Curiously, Lenna is the only character in Final Fantasy V (apart from Exdeath) with an official theme. It is simply titled Lenna's Theme (or Reina's Theme), and is mostly played in her flashbacks.

Trivia

Ryukishi07, creator of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni, is a self-proclaimed fan of Final Fantasy V. His pen name originated from Lenna — "07" in Japanese can be pronounced as "reinana", and "Ryukishi" means "dragoon". It's also loosely the basis for the Higurashi character, Rena Ryugu.

Etymology

"Lenna" is the anglicised form of Lena, which is the Russian diminutive form of Yelena ("Ellen" or "Helen"). Also, Lenna's name in the original translation, Reina, is the Spanish word for "Queen".
