Komui's younger sister, and assistant Head Officer. She is Chinese, and 16 years old. Her parents were killed by an Akuma when she was very young. Because she is an Accommodator, the Black Order took her away from her only remaining family member (Komui) to Headquarters against her will. For three years she was never allowed to leave the place, which felt like a prison to her. Because she attempted suicide, she had to be restrained and tied to her bed. However, once Komui joined the Black Order, Lenalee became more at ease in the Headquarters. She once told Allen that her "world" consists of her friends and family; if something terrible ever happened to them, she would be devastated. It is implied that she has a crush on Allen.
She is an Exorcist whose anti-Akuma weapon is a pair of boots, or "Dark Boots". That, when invoked, increases one's speed and strength greatly in the legs. Her boots allow her to use the following techniques:
- Onkyou no Tougi: Otokaze (Step Skill of Sound: "Sound Shackles" ): Magically interfaces with sound waves, solidifying the sound of each step into a surface while achieving sonic-speeds.
- Suijou no Tougi: Mizukaze (Stepping Skill on the Water: "Water Shackles" ): Magically interfaces with water, enabling her to walk perfectly on water surfaces.
- Enbu Kirikaze (Waltz: "Mist-Wind" ): Stirs up a destructive tornado with a whirling kick of her Dark Boots.
- Shittsui no Tougi: Tetsukaze (Falling Footwork: "Iron Shackles" ): Upon maximum invocation, her Innocence's power is condensed unto her Dark Boots, meshing them into a morass of blades, carrying an oppressive weight.
She has a strong sense of friendship, which sometimes causes her emotional pain (or causes her to fight with her comrades). While Allen was training to regain his Innocence back with Baku (of the Black Order's Asia Headquarters), he finds numerous pictures of Lenalee, coming to a conclusion that Baku is stalking her (or perhaps just infatuated). It is shown that even though she has lost the use of her Anti-Akuma weapon, she hasn't lost her will to fight for other's sake.
During the battle against a Level 3 Akuma on the sea, Lenalee had forced her Dark Boots to its maximum invocation to defeat the Akuma, using her ultimate technique, Shittsui no Tougi: Tetsukase, and nearly losing her life. After the battle, her hair, which had started out long and tied into two ponytails, had become extremely short and unkempt. Also due to the battle, she lost her Dark Boots after pushing them to their limits. In a strange twist of fate, Lenalee's legs have lost much of their mobility and even the time reversing effects of Miranda's Innocence couldn't do anything about it.
At the time where Lavi heads off the ship to search for Lenalee, who has yet to return after the attack by Akuma, he finds a modified Akuma who holds a large crystal with Lenalee encased inside. The Akuma claims that the Innocence took on this form to protect Lenalee. Because of this, it has been presumed that Lenalee's innocence may be the "Heart", which the Earl and the Black Order are looking for. However, Lavi, after learning about how Allen's Innocence saved his life by filling in a piece of his heart, wonders why there are two "instances" and if they are related somehow.
Her name is spelled 'Linali Lee' in VIZ Media 's translation (In the midst of volume three, however, it changed to Lenalee, then occasionally switched back to Linali). Another translation of the name is Rinali, as in the Japanese language R and L are the same consonant.
A cheerful red-haired Exorcist of mixed race, who aims to become a Bookman and is working along the Black Order just to be close to the events that must be seen. To help him, he developed an incredible memory: he is able to memorize every single aspect of something he saw, but he commented (in chapter 101) that he could identify "the key" (the key which Tyki Mikk gave) faster if he were to use both his eyes when sieving out the real "key" from the fake. He is 18 years old, and normally uses his left eye while the right eye is covered by an eyepatch. His anti-Akuma weapon is a size-shifting hammer, which he calls Odzuchi Kodzuchi ("big hammer small hammer") or Nyoibo . It can grow (man ) or extend (shin ). His hammer can also summon several "judgments" with kanji possibly representing the classical elements that can be used individually or combined. However, between some of the seals are question marks. This probably means that Lavi has some seals that he has yet to learn from his Innocence. His techniques so far, are:
- Hi Ban: Gouka Kaijin (Fire Seal: Conflagration of Ash ): using the fire seal to create a torrent of flames with the form of a snake;
- Ten Ban: Raitei Kaiten (Heaven Seal: Thundering Lightning Whirling in the Skies ): using the heaven seal to liberate an immense lightning;
- Moku Ban: Tenchi Bankai (Wood Seal: Roots Entwining Heaven and Earth ): using the wood seal to control objects in nature;
- Konbo Ban: Gouraiten Combo Seal: Strong Thunder of the Heavens ) :using both fire and heaven seals to create a huge snake of fire and iron. Also making a shield-like flame wall.
It was shown when Bookman told Lavi to use the wood seal to clear the clouds (Three Akuma were hiding behind the clouds). Lavi stated that he forgot he could use it to affect nature directly, and as he remembered it the question mark turned into a kanji that he used right away. If seen more carefully the kanji for the wood seal can be seen throughout the manga whenever Lavi summons his seals long before the use of the actual seal itself (e.g. during the use of the heaven seal). At the moment just before its first use the seal can be seen just behind Lavi's head and had never transformed from a question mark in the first place.
The marks of water and earth also appear among his seals. He likes to call Bookman "Panda" due to the thick black circles around his eyes; a converted Akuma "Chomesuke"; and Arystar " Kuro-chan " in the anime and "Kro-chan" in the manga. He is the only character to call Kanda by his given name (that name being Yu, also translated as Yu or Yuu), and apparently speaks to him outside of missions, a fact that was shown when he called Allen "beansprout" (moyashi ), saying that if Kanda could call him that, Lavi could as well, as he is the same age as Kanda. He has a habit of teasing Allen, and deems himself as his big brother. A recurring gag in the series is Lavi's fondness for beautiful older women, whenever he sees a woman his type(Example: Eliade, Lulubell, and Anita)he'll yell out "Strike!" with hearts in his eye.
In recent chapters (beginning with 114), Lavi was fighting an incarnation of his past created by Road in one of her dimensions. It was revealed that his name, Lavi, is just an alias (his 49th, to be exact). He had cast aside his old name and background to show his commitment to being a Bookman It was also revealed that Lavi was once cold and indifferent to others, for a Bookman only lives to view and record history and that humans are nothing more than 'ink' on a page. However, over time Lavi's personality changed and he began to truly care about others, slowly casting aside his identity as a Bookman. When he thought that Allen was killed by Tyki Mikk, he tried to avenge Allen by attempting to kill Tyki himself.
During his fight against his past incarnation, his 'heart' (current personality) was supposedly destroyed. This caused his past incarnation, under the control of Road, to emerge in his physical body and savagely attack Allen. Unwilling to hurt Lavi, Allen attacked Road but failed to harm her, as her current body was not her true form. Lavi's current self managed to resurface and suppress his past self. He then engulfed himself in a massive Hi-Ban to attack Road in the real world, while simultaneously stabbing her through the heart within her dimension, defeating her.
In recent chapters, after the appearance of Cross Marian to their aid, Lavi's status was unknown after falling into a 'hole' made by the Millennium Earl's flashy entrance. He attempted to lengthen his Innocence to save himself, but it shattered when Allen grabbed Lavi's innocence in an effort to pull him up. Although he was apparently lost in the 'hole' in the Ark, he was shown to have been revived along with the rest of the 'lost' Exorcists on the Ark when the Ark was restored by Allen.
There are many different translations of his name, such as Ravi, Rabi, Labi.
His birthday has also been said to be found on the 10th of August.
