Jeanne is a female protagonist of The Magic Knight.
The inheritor of the spirit of the Maiden of New Orléans, Joan of Arc. She is the second adoptive daughter of the former Paladin, Naomi Shirogane, who trained her together with Yumi in order to become a Knight before her death. Jeanne is a second-year in Kuoh Academy who eventually became adored by students due to her cheerful and usual upbeat nature.
She is ranked as an Arch-Knight in the Chivalric Order and was later reincarnated into an Angel by Lancelot through one of his Brave Saints, her ranking being "Two of Hearts".
Jeanne is a beautiful yet cute blonde haired young woman with blue eyes and a slim figure. As a trainee, she wore the same equipment that is given to a Knight-in-Training. When Jeanne is on a mission, wore a modified black school blazer that is worn normal student with a sword/shield on her breast pocket, a white button-up shirt, 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.
After the summer break, as combat attire, Jeanne wears a blue coat worn over a blue tube top and silver breastplate, she has a silver armored guard on her right arm, while on her left arm is a blue arm warmer, black shorts stopping at her thighs, thigh-high socks, and brown boots.
Following her Angelization by Lancelot, Jeanne has a red "2" printed on her right hand, symbolizing her position as his Two of Hearts. She gains a pair of white Angel Wings and halo.
Jeanne has a very cheerful and childlike personality, she also calls people by nicknames that she comes up with, calling Kiba "Yuu-kun" and Xenovia "Xeno-Chan". Jeanne has also shown to carry a deep sisterly bond with Yumi; both of them being close to each other than they do with Lancelot, but 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Though in the past, however, Jeanne was originally withdrawn and closed off from the other children who lived in the orphanage with her.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 her 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.
During that time 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 Yumi's adoptive sister, she 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 she attacked a devil. However, her life was saved by Naomi who chased after he along 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 to the ground by a Stray High-Class Devil who wanted to sell her for a high price. This led to her parents and friends being killed by the Devil and her almost being traumatized by the attack. Hearing about the incident, Knights of the Chivalric Order had arrived and brought her to the orphanage.
While there she made little to no attempt to make friends with anyone there but was later adopted by Naomi Shirogane and trained along with Yumi, who was like her 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.
