Rei Carnation, the Phantom Presence
|FULL NAME||Rei Carnation|
|CURRENT LOCATION||Tacoma, Washington|
Rei Carnation is a ghostly girl that resides in Pinku Rozen's house and was the former resident prior to her living there. She is a flirty and teasing ghost who is tethered to the house but can explore the Spirit Universe to her own whim. The character was created by Helena Harper (t∣b∣c) as a friend for Pinku Rozen as well as to explore the Spirit Universe, a aspect of the New Fantendoverse that had been mostly reserved to the Ghost Smile series.
Rei Carnation is a ghost girl that lives in Pinku Rozen's house, with her soul literally tethered to the house to haunt. She often likes to tease her fellow housemates, as well as flirt with whatever guests come by.
Rei Carnation is a pink colored ghost with black eyes with pink, glowing pupils. She wears blue tinted glasses. She has black hair with a pink colored segment of hair that goes over her left side of her face. She has floating black pigtails. She usually wears a white dress that has long sleeves and is too big for her, as you can usually see her collarbone. She often is seen without legs as she is mostly floating, but she will occasionally form some that end up looking like ghostly spurs since she forgot what feet look like. She is usually seen with one to three ghostly flames that float next to her.
Rei Carnation is a flirty and teasing ghost that is often seen as bouncy and fun-loving. She seems to be okay with the fact she's dead, although she often laments some of the disadvantages that come with this. She claims to own the house as much Pinku does, although she was not willing to pay rent due to her being dead and unable to get a job. During an ultimatum with her, it was agreed that Xerra and her would work together doing bounty hunting to pay the rent.
Rei Carnation is usually involved with less-than-legal activities or doing drugs since they can't actually effect her and her fingerprints would not appear at a crime scene. ("What are they going to do, send a ghost to jail?" tends to be a common argument she has) She is very eager to exploit the loopholes in the system in the mortal realm, since ghosts are not common place. She has had to stop doing some of these things with the introduction of her two new housemates, but it's not uncommon to see her snorting coke off a male or female stripper.
Rei Carnation also seems to have a interesting past; she has hinted at being a dancer in the past, as well as being part of stage productions (such as Romeo and Juliet). She is also unsure exactly how she died, as nobody was able to ever find her body but her spirit landed in her house anyway.
Rei Carnation appears in Episode 0: Pink Pilot in the series and is a main character. Rei Carnation is introduced as the previous owner of the house, and fills Pinku in with details about her, including rather, stupidly, that she is tethered to the tea cup. Pinku threatens to smash it unless Rei chips in with the rent, which Rei agrees to, although she seems eager to get out of this deal in any way she can.
In Episode 1: Pink Promise, Xerra and Rei go looking for a job, stealing a man's phone to find a job listing. After finding a rather lucrative baby sitting job, Rei and Xerra go the apartment, which turns out to be Rachel Harel's apartment and the person they are actually babysitting is NULL. Rei Carnation is fooled by NULL's transformation into Xerra, and accidentally lets her outside, needing to chase her down with Xerra. The chase leads them into Dr. Lucille Graves' hospital, who helps them put NULL into a unconscious state. Rei and Xerra nearly drag NULL home before Rei remembers she can possess bodies, and they bring NULL back to the apartment. Due to a prolonged game of truth or dare, they end up having to spend the whole night there, leaving Pinku at home. After returning back home, Rei Carnation reunites with Pinku and openly invites Pinku and Xerra to the ghoul party happening that Saturday, leading into the next episode.
Powers and Abilities
Rei Carnation is a ghost and comes with the typical powers of one. She can phase through walls and float, as well produce Spirit Tools to use for herself and her allies. She can also visit the Spirit Universe and take people that she wants with her. She can also stretch and distort her limbs, not unlike a certain ghost. She however, is limited in the mortal realm by a teacup, which tethers her to the mortal realm and needs to be carried if her allies plan her to join them in battle. If this teacup were to be destroyed or considered impossible to drink from, she would be forced to stay in the Spirit Universe.
Rei and Xerra generally get along okay. Rei often joins Xerra on bounty hunting missions and usually plays as the support to her offense. The two usually play as foils to each other, although this hasn't stopped Rei from granting Xerra to visit the Spirit Universe using Spirit Pass.
Pinku and Rei generally along well. Rei likes to tease her but the two remain good friends and Rei has even gifted Pinku the ability to go into the Spirit Universe to attend various parties in that realm.
- Rei Carnation's favorite illegal activity is to jaywalk, which gives her a very big thrilling sensation. Her second favorite illegal activity is snorting cocaine.
- Rei Carnation's concept of being a ghost girl was the only concept that remained really the same from the original concept of "Pink Lemonade" during development. The actual line-up of characters may have consisted of more monstrous girls, such as a vampire, zombie, or naga. However, vampires had been well explored at this point with Rubelline and the other two just never really went anywhere.
