Rina Atherina (greek Ρινα Αδερινα) is a member of Canvas Ranger, aligned with Heroes and currently in 2nd division. Lost most of her memories, no one even she herself, realized that she left a tragic past behind.
Her Crossgender version is Reno.
Her life is extremely rough, but she is able to overcome it and turns it to a beautiful life, thus earning her canvas, Rough Canvas.
Rina is a young girl in her sixteen. She has asian mother and caucasian father, making her unique in appearance, although she inherited her appearance mostly from her mother.
She has a round-shaped face that is obscured by her blue, bob-styled hair which she accessorizes with a hairband. Her eyes are big, angled, and upward slant. Rina is quite short in height compared to most females of her age in Canvas Ranger.
One noticeable appearance is, despite her young age, she already has curvaceous body shape and well-developed feminine features (particularly her large breasts, as stated by other rangers). It's a characteristic shared by female members of her maternal family.
Her another unique appearance is her vivid violet-magenta eyes, a legacy that is also shared by her maternal family. Her eyes will emit a warm and bright glow when her magical power is activated. Her eyes also appear reddish in some artworks.
Rina is quite fashionable, and follows fashion trends in internet or magazines, and owns a large variety of clothings. But in daily life, she is usually seen in her bandeau dress under a sweater, with some combination of color, black-white or blue. Her body is small, and she wears high-heeled footwears to appear taller. Her wardrobe mostly consists of cute and feminine clothings.
When not using her wedges/sandals and wearing shoes, she always wears white thigh high socks, and it also incorporated into her Henshin clothing.
In 3rd War era, she is seen wearing short turtleneck blue vest with glowing stripes, and short skirt. Her limbs covered by black leather gloves and long socks, and same blue layer as her vest, complimenting her blue hair.
In the Fifth WAR, Rina sports some changes from her previous outfit, mainly due to her revamped abilities as a full-fledged magician. She now wears more elaborate outfit, a black shirt, sleeve and large hairband, with blue skirt (her school uniform's skirt) that perfectly matches the color of her hair. Her gloves and long boots are also black, with blue trim.
Seen in the latest WAR, her henshin outfit undergone several minor changes. Her top now featuring open design, a silver tie, and several lines of green and blue neons. A small mechanized knee protector is present, that enables her to move faster, increasing her agility. She also wears headset.
One's first impression of Rina is a clumsy, innocent girl. Rina has tendency to slip even when there are nothing slippery. She can get distracted by something cute and adorable. At school, she excels at nearly every subjects, excluding physical education, because of her rather weak body.
Despite these shortcomings, Rina is kind-hearted, talkative, lively and cheerful girl who will always tries her best to cheer others. She shows strong dislikes for gloomy situations (and peoples) and tries her best to brighten them. Always cheerful, she states that she wants to help everyone, and to make everyone smile and happy, even villains. However, she will do anything to stop the Villains from moving forward.
She speaks with a slight British accent.

She is also attends high school (along with Red) and working part time job in a cafe and daycare center under Lily, and once considering to be a model for young girl fashion but turned down. Like any students, she spend most of her time studying, but in her free time, she prefers to go outside in activities she calls "fashion hunting". She also likes to hang out with her friends.
Her father was now retired from the military and is working for the local police, allowing them to settle down and spend time together without needing to travel abroad.
History EditRina was a sole daughter of successful family, her father was a high-ranking military soldier, and her mother runs a successful international business. This leads them to move frequently from country to country for business and military purpose. Her family is very rich and successful, that they have a mansion at every country. But they finally decided to stay in Atlantis, and Rina enters her junior high school there. In her 13rd birthday, a disastrous explosion that appears to be a huge nuclear blast destroyed the city. Rina who were at the city outskirt that moment survived the blast, but the others are died from shockwave and radiation poisoning. Rina, saddened that she lost her precious people and is now alone, tried to commit suicide by jumping from a bridge, but fortunately, she was saved by two researchers, Maya and Takashi.
It's revealed that Maya is Takashi's wife, and she cannot give her husband any child, due to her previous occupation as a nuclear researcher, and one of her failed experiments mutated her genes. Rina decided to stay with them, and healing her shocked mental. Rina learned many things from them, such as how to speak Japanese, and creating her own electronical devices.
A few days later, Maya shocked to find that she is pregnant, a more shocked Takashi concludes that Rina's body still irradiated by previous nuclear blast, and reverses the effect that affects Maya. They were very happy, and decided to celebrate in a nearby cafe.
But several hours later, when Rina back from gathering unused scraps, she found Maya and Takashi dead, killed by unknown creature known as artblock. This saddened and shattered Rina's heart even more.
Her mental state shocked since the incident, she has turned more silent and cold. She vows revenge against artblock, and wanders by herself. She drops exhausted after walked several days, and found by a nomad known as The Dune Nomad
Months later, she was trained to be an assassin, and erases her emotions. Under the nomad chief's wing, she was delivered to various assassination missions, which always end in success. One day, when United Nations heard of her ability, decided to 'buy' her and recruited her to be one of their special agent. She underwent further training there for two and half years, enhancing her already potent power and abilities. Two and a half years later, she was assigned to a mission in far land, that mission was revealed to be a member of 2nd Division of Heroes.
Canvas Ranger Edit
Arrived at the location, she discovered an old woman attacked by several thugs. She decimates them all and saves the old woman. As a thanks for saving her life, the old woman invites Rina to work in her flower shop, which Rina gladly accepts. One week later, the thugs are back, and attacked the old woman once again, prompting Rina to invervene. However, they won in numbers, and despite Rina's attempt to decimate most of them, they have succeeded to badly injure the old woman, and leaves her for dead. Rina rushes to save her, only for her to heard the last word from the old woman, states that she is now trusted her flower shop to Rina.
Months later, she is able to establish the business by her own, and named the flower shop as The Flower Paradise, even received numerous decorating jobs from other shops.
Several days later, heavy rain enveloped the city. Rina returns to her flower shop, and heard someone knocking the door. When she opened it, a lightning flashed, and revealed tall-mysterious and frightening figure appeared outside the shop, asking for 'refuge'. She quickly react to land a killing blow, but stopped when the light finally reveals the man's face, a young man with red hair; an unknown guitar wanderer that calls himself Algeo. Resting in her shop for a hour, he mysteriously dissapeared and later appeared in Nakamiya's shop (in the same way he appeared in Rina's flower shop). When Rina arrived there, she befriends him, and apparently fond of his guitar skills, and asked to learn it. Algeo agreed, in exchange of Rina's swordsmanship skills.
In a comical scene, she is seen protecting Nakamiya from his mentor Altair, whom she develop a comical hatred.
Months later, Sippo decided to hunt for higher job at foreign countries, and leaves her friends. A day later, a tall, mummy-looking man appeared, and seemingly confused at where he should go. They decided to accept him as member of the division, a man named Fied. Rina is also close to Fied, because she thinks that they had 'something in common', and both of them felt that they were the 'cursed'. He sometimes sent bouquet of flower to her, and sometimes he can be seen spending time in her flower field.
1st War Edit
During War, she fought villains in the National Monument's ruins. After long fight, she was forced to face Haru. The fight was uneven as she was not able to bring herself to harm any 'children' (Rina mistakes Haru for a children because of his small stature).
- "Well, my final task in this world has finished. Now i can leave without any regrets..."
- —Rina's final words
She was died after war, exhausted and let her energy escapes from her body. Remains of her is kept by her division friends. A place where she died is now full of wild flowers. Fied, Krain, Zee, and Renausuallyseen there, reminiscing the time when Rina is still alive
3rd War EraEdit
After her death, her body was taken by Pentagon for research. The research turned out to be a resurrection project for dead elite agents. Several tries have failed, including a procedure of irradiating the body with gamma rays to accelerate the cell growth and restarting her life, but the scientist decided to gave up and prepared to incinerate her body.
Suddenly Rina woke up, surprising the scientists. She has no memory of her past, only remembers her name, Rina. Under the command of Pentagon, she became special agent once more, doing missions like she was used to be. But her new personality prevents her to finish the missions effectively (she is now reluctant to hurt someone, and cowers in fear when she did so), disappointing Pentagon.
At the dawn, she overheard a conversation between scientists that she was dead and revived back, surprising her. Feared at her status as an 'undead', she ran away from Pentagon, but not before she get shot in the abdomen before leaving. She stumbles into a small city where she used to be before her death, however, a group of street thugs approached her. Feisha who saw the blood trails emerged and dealt with the thugs, saving Rina. She later asks Rina to go to her house to treat the wounds, which Rina happily agreed.
The menbers of 2nd division of Heroes (Rina, Fied, and Algeo) decided to go on a vacation to Yogyakarta. After a short ruckus involving her male teammates, she decided to go to the airport first. Arrived to the airport, she sensed a strange aura of the people, as if they aren't real humans. She called Algeo and Fied, asking them to arrive asap, before she was attacked by Artblock posing as an office boy. She dodged it easily and broke its back. Suddenly a horde of artblocks attacked her, prompting her to unleash her scroll and attacked them with her Ice Sigil. Algeo later arrived and saved Rina from a would-be fatal hit from behind with his acoustic guitar. They unisoned and cleared the entrance and main hall of the Airport. Fied later arrived after cleared the park area.
It was revealed that the unknown phenomenon has rendered the artblocks wild, and attacked everything on its path. After clearing the airport, they board on a plane to Jogjakarta for free, a sign of thanks from the airport menagement.
Arrived in location, they found that most part of Yogyakarta has turned into sand dunes. After a long walk, they found an abandoned Joglo (javanese house) and decided to rest for a bit. Suddenly artblocks ambushed them, They transformed into henshin mode and fight. Rina and Fied goes outside, while Algeo took care of the artblocks inside the house.
After cleared the ambush, the area begin to transform to normal, the sand dune was an illusion casted by a high level artblock. Disturbed that an artblock possessed that kind of ability, they leave to check other areas.
Last Stage: OUTBREAKEdit
Earlier of the fateful day, Rina walks by herself in Borobudur's southern area, where she suddenly notices Vaein, Nate and some other villains gather on top of Borobudur. Rina, curious about what they might be talking (or planning) decided to watch their movement for a bit, when Nikora and Samme, her fellow heroes came by. Suddenly Samme moved and start attacking those villains, Rina and Nikora have no choice but taking actions too.
The fight was so great despite few warriors fighting, exchanging blows and blocks, attacking enemies and protecting their comrades, until the sun starts to rise, no one emerges as the winner. But the fight suddenly stopped when Feisha, suddenly appeared in the middle of battlefield and stopped the fight, despite being hurt because of the last war. The Heroes and Villains decided to retreat and rest for the epic battle.
The real battle ensues, entire rangers of Heroes and Villains battled in epic fight, until all of them are exhausted and one by one revealed their true power. Rina, saw her friends fallen before her, cries, stated that she is just too weak to fight, and just a burden to the others protecting her, the intense guilt in her heart grows out of control, and manifests as a dark purple aura that slowly emerges and envelops her body; she lets her guilt takes control of her body, and unleashed immense power that can take out a soul at her own will.
At the end of the war, she finally forgives herself, and slowly regained consciousness. By the time she awake, the war was already over, and Fied stands beside her, along with Meltis and unconscious Algeo. Rina asks what happened to Algeo, but Fied cannot bring himself to say a thing. Rina hugs unconscious Algeo and starts crying loudly.
Some times after the Big War, Rina gets a visit from a stranger that revealed herself to be Rina's past self. She seems to be hiding from someone.
Rina in Battle EditRina is a Full Fledged Summoner/Conjurer, and fights with magical powers, in which she called it Psi Force (body/mind force). Her elemental affinity is Holy, and her moves involves the holy elements. Her attack power depends from how long she charged it, the longer she charges her attack, the more powerful it will be. To compensate this, she has decent agility, that mainly used to keep her distance from her opponents, buying her time to charge her attacks. Most of her moves flungs opponents back, and/or make them stand still, thereby giving her time to keep distance. This effectively makes her a long-range fighter.
She is also able to summon items that she has 'sealed' before in her scrolls. Mainly medicines and her friends' weapons.Her ultimate attack is Holy Ray Cannon, a beam of light (consisted of a highly concentrated holy element), capable of obliterating dark energy and the beam itself bursts upon impact with objects, causing area damage along its path. It's unblockable, has a very long range, and instantly executed, leaving no time for enemies to react. However, using this technique is very risky, it must be charged for at least 20 seconds to reach its potential power, but leaving Rina defenseless. If the charging interrupted mid-action, Rina must repeat from beginning. It's also requires incredible amount of energy; Rina will lost much of her Psi force, reverted back to her normal mode, and left exhausted.
The very long charging time also gives opportunity for enemies to interrupt it, or flee, latter option is possible; the Holy Ray Cannon needs to be aimed precisely at long range target because it has a narrow area of impact (a straight line).
In the first war, Rina has no magic abilities at all, making her vulnerable to magic attacks, and her magic defense was incredibly poor, but she could counter it with her excellent agility. Her attacks consisted of big strikes with her huge swords, dealt massive damage to her opponents. She would switch to shorter and lighter blade to defend herself from closer opponents.
- Flash step. Thanks to her good agility, she is capable to cover a short distance in an instant, mainly to keep away from her opponents.
- Super jump. Using a smaller, redirected version of Holy Force Blast, she is capable to jump much higher and farther than average human.
- Aura eyes. As a maternal family characteristic, she has a special sight, enables her to see emmited aura in her surroundings, she can also see aura emitted beyond visual range, albeit only in a very short time. When activated, aura eyes can't process incoming light, but only sees aura emanating from people or things, therefore making the user capable to see in low-to-no light conditions. It's automatically activated when Rina uses her magical power. When activated, her eyes will glow. Because this type of sight enables user to see at the distance more clearly, the user usually has a poor near-sight.
- Elemental affinity. Holy. An uncommon element occured when all fundamentary elements are united. Rina's Holy cannot be used to directly inflict harm, but is very effective against Dark elements (and vice versa)
- "The strongest power comes- when you have something to protect!"
- —Rina, in Berserk Mode
In Berserk Mode, Rina's power increased, and changes form. She is able to gather the natural Holy forces to further augment her power, making the normally costly and long-charging attack (like Holy Ray Cannon, Rainbow- Attacks) can be used multiple times in succession without charging, has larger area effect, bigger damage and wider radius. However, her speed is reduced. She gained ability to levitate in Berserk Mode.
