Ōtsuka Reina, known as Renee, is one of the 10,000 people trapped in Sword Art Online. She is the leader of the clearing guild Ursa Minor, and is the protagonist of the fan fiction Misfortune Made Her Sword.


Renee has long, neatly styled dirty blonde hair and dark brown eyes. Between that and her small stature, she has been described as doll-like on several occasions.

Early on in the game she wore a light blue tunic with a leather vest and pants. She wears her sword sheath on her left hip.


Renee is generally a very friendly person, open to socializing and willing to include others in her antics, whether they've asked for it or not. She draws enjoyment from other people's small misfortunes and has even gone out of her way to cause them when in need of a good laugh, or just when she feels an opportunity is too good to pass up. Notably sarcastic, she is often ready with a quick quip or two, and spares no one when it comes to her teasing.

Naturally curious, and as often as not reckless, she is the sort to save a game just prior to jumping off a cliff just to see if the fall kills her, or she might simply push someone else over instead. These tendencies are checked following the announcement of the death game, giving way to greater caution in lieu of larger numbers. She maintains this caution even after establishing and growing her guild. She objects to both initially, only giving over to the former after meeting with a majority vote against her, and finally shruggingly agreeing to the latter.


Reina: "You aren't even a little bit surprised?"
Anri: "A little, yeah. Up until Hasekura I was convinced you were lesbian."

Arc 1: Into the Fire



Ursa Minor


Renee has been Ashe's best friend since the second grade. Despite their diverging interests they've managed to stay close over the years. While their opinions don't always align on certain matters, they each fancy the other their sister. They've built up a level of comfort with each other to match, having been shown to be okay with changing in front of each other and sharing a bed.


The two met in the fields surrounding the Town of Beginnings on the day the game launched. Although they got along well enough initially, prolonged exposure to one another's company tends to lead to one of two things: arguments that go nowhere or one-sided teasing.


Rosalind and Renee didn't get off to the best start. After joining the other girl's party, the two develop a harmless, albeit mildly physical, rivalry. They both enjoy getting a rise out of the other.
