Lucy, as she appears in the manga.
Lucy Renault is one of the five Valkyries first introduced in the Valkyrie Project Arc.
Lucy is part of the Valkyrie contingent that made their début at Genetics West. She hails from France.
Lucy has long silver hair, parted to the left, that runs to the small of her back. She appears to have dark blue eyes, and a very slender physique. Her uniform is light purple in colour.
She's a very reserved woman, who rarely speaks to anyone. Her long silver hair and somewhat detached countenance are reminiscent of Holly Rose.
Valkyrie Project Introduction ArcEdit
She and her fellow Valkyries first appeared at the West Genetics stadium, where they engaged in a battle simulation against a Type-S replicate. Lucy and the others distracted the monstrosity long enough for Ouka to land the killing blow. After their victory, they unmask, and are formally introduced to the crowd.
Much later in the story, Kazuya Aoi encounters Lucy atop a building staring at the moon on the middle of the night. Spotting him, Lucy silently jumps down to his location, surprising Kazuya. He assumes this was an Accel Turn, but he then thinks that her movement was just like Chiffon's, the Illusion Turn. When Lucy responds to her name, granting her, her first words since her introduction, Kazuya begins to talk about the deceased Pandora to which Lucy silently listens with a blank face. Lucy suddenly states the names: Cassandra, Windy, Chiffon, Tesland, and Kazuha Aoi, Kazuya sister. This baffles Kazuya, and she shocks him even more when she states that these girls are her "sisters" and Kazuya is her sibling too.
She saw he didn't understand, and explained that conveying true intentions through the language center I.e. speaking, was impossible.She then asked if he'd experienced the existence on the other side that transcended his consciousness, which baffled him even further. She then asked why the Novas appeared in gigantic forms, and why humans fought against another sentient race. And before Kazuya could have answered, she gave it herself: "This happened because you people never thought of listening to them. You people never used the medium known as Maria, to listen to their feelings that they wanted to convey to humans." A bewildered Kazuya tried to excuse himself, but she grabbed his wrist, pulled him back and kissed him. Through it she transferred some of her memories to Kazuya (through a kiss); of a younger Gengo, Maria, her sisters at Lab 13, even more recent memories like the Valkyries' début at the West Genetics stadium.
Once she was finished, she released Kazuya, who fell to his hands and knees, coughing from the experience. "Soon you will realize", she spoke to him with a rather intimidating look, "the place where you should really be. And why humans, cannot share their minds with one another". An angry female voice shouted towards them. She looked past Kazuya, and saw the form of her fellow Valkyrie, Ouka Honda. The enraged woman ran up to her and viciously slapped her across the face. As Ouka tended to her cousin, Lucy retreated into the night.
12th Nova Clash ArcEdit
Lucy has many of the same abilities as her fellow Valkyries, which include the Valkyrie Scud and the Plasma Weapon. While her actual weapon has not been shown, she finally demonstrated her strength when she decapitated a saurian-like Nova with a single blow.
The Girls of Lab 13Edit
She knew four of them by name, and considers them her sisters, which suggests she might have been one of them.
He was the one who allowed her to join the Valkyries the previous year.
