Jeanne is ranked as an Arch Knight amongst the Chivalric Order and later reincarnated into an Angel by Lancelot through one of his Brave Saints, her ranking among his peerage being "Two of Hearts".
Jeanne is a beautiful yet cute young woman with blonde hair and blue eyes. Her long blonde hair is usually tied up in a number of braids and extends passed her back.
As a squire, Jeanne wore the same training equipment as other knights-in-training meant for their physical training. Whenever on assignments, Jeanne wore the battle attire of the Chivalric Order that is meant for Knights; a modified black female blazer with a sword/shield knitted on her breast pocket, a white dress shirt, a black skirt, and shoes.
Once Jeanne transferred to Kuoh Academy as a second-year, she wears the academies' female uniform, which consists of a white long-sleeved, button-down shirt, a black ribbon, a magenta skirt with white accents, and brown dress shoes worn over white crew-length socks.

She has shown to carry a deep sisterly bond with Yumi. Both of them being close to each other than they do with Lancelot, but just like sisters, they do still fight at times with one another (most of the time it's over Lancelot).
Though in the past, however, Jeanne was originally withdrawn and closed off from the other children who lived in the orphanage with her. This was due to being traumatized after watching her parents killed right in front of her at the hands of devils, almost causing permanent damage to her mental state.
Jeanne gained a great amount of hatred towards Devils as an entire species, desiring to watch every last one of them die. Even after being adopted by Naomi and becoming the adoptive sister of Yumi, Jeanne was distant from both of them; even after many attempts to connect with her. One day, during a joint mission with Naomi and Yumi, Jeanne had almost got herself killed after attacking a Devil. However, her life was saved by Naomi who chased after her with Yumi.
Jeanne lived in a small town with her parents, which had a church located there. When she was a little girl, soon it was discovered by the officials in the church that she inherited the spirit of Joan of Arc. Soon enough she became worshipped by everyone living in town, but it all soon ended when her hometown was burned down to the ground by Stray High-Class Devils who wanted to sell her for a high price; leading to her parents and friends being killed, Jeanne also became traumatized by the attack.
Jeanne was saved by Knights from the Chivalric Order led by Naomi Shirogane, who then adopted her along with Yumi. While there she made little to no attempt to make friends with anyone there even her own adoptive sister. During her time with them, Jeanne regained her former childish personality. And at the age of seven, she met up with Lancelot along with Yumi, and almost instantly developed a crush on him after spending some time with him.
