She carries the spirit of the Maiden of Orléans, Joan of Arc. She is the second adoptive daughter of Naomi Shirogane, the former Paladin, who then trained her in swordplay together with Yumi in order for them to become Knights before her death.
Jeanne is a second-year student at Kuoh Academy and became adored by students due to her cheerful demeanor and her usual upbeat nature. 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.
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.

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". 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 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Though in the past, however, Jeanne was originally withdrawn and closed off from the other children who lived in the orphanage with her.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 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 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; leading to her parents and friends being killed, Jeanne also became traumatized by the attack.
Jeanne was saved by Knights from the Chivalric Order being 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.
