- “This moment's enough. I don't need anything else. Just knowing how you feel is enough.”
- —Lenne to Shuyin
Lenne was 19 years old when she perished 1000 years ago. Lenne has brown eyes and long, straight, brunette hair with two sets of bead earrings. She wears violet lipstick. Her dress, worn by Yuna as her Songstress dressphere, is a blue top with white frills and a laced, black miniskirt. She wears brown knee-high boots and blue forearm adornments.
Not much is known about Lenne's personality, but it can be presumed she was a caring and loving person as she didn't want to see such grief and death across Spira. Lenne loved Shuyin and her strong feelings for him allowed her memories to be preserved in the form of a sphere.
Lenne was a summoner and a treasured songstress in ancient Zanarkand. During the Machina War, Lenne was expected to fight in the front lines. Her lover, Shuyin, set out to steal Bevelle's weapon of mass destruction, Vegnagun, to stop the war and save her, but Lenne went after him. She caught up with him in Vegnagun's chamber, but the couple was gunned down by the Bevelle forces. Lenne told Shuyin she loved him during her final breath, but he never heard her. Shuyin's soul lived on and grew bitter and hateful for everything that had been taken away from him.
Lenne's memories and feelings present in the pyreflies condensed into a sphere, which Kimahri Ronso finds on Mt. Gagazet a thousand years later. The Gullwings use it as a dressphere, not knowing its true nature as the host of Lenne's spirit. Yuna notices a subtle change in her emotions while wearing the dressphere, and appears able to connect to Lenne's lingering memories the way no one else seen wearing the dressphere can. The only other person to notice the link is Maechen, who, when shaking Yuna's hand, appears to recognize Lenne in Yuna's gestures.
While wearing the dressphere Yuna dreams of meeting with Tidus in Bevelle Underground and being shot by Bevelle guards. When Yuna falls through the hole in the Djose Temple's Chamber of the Fayth to the Farplane, she meets Shuyin's spirit who mistakes her as Lenne due to Yuna wearing Lenne's dressphere. During the encounter, Yuna feels a surge of alien emotions. Lenne's memories manifest as the song "1000 Words" Yuna performs during her concert on the Thunder Plains. During the concert the Songstress dressphere reacts with Shinra's sphere display, broadcasting Lenne's final memories for the crowd. Lenne's spirit is manifested and sings alongside Yuna, (in the original Japanese release Yuna briefly turns into Lenne instead) and the party discovers Lenne's spirit lies dormant inside Yuna's dressphere.
As the party ventures into the Farplane to stop Shuyin, they try to trick him by having Yuna wear Lenne's dressphere and impersonate as her. Shuyin sees through the guise and goes berserk. After the party defeats Shuyin in battle Lenne awakens and steps out of Yuna's dressphere to soothe Shuyin. She tells him to rest and thanks Yuna as they both fade away.
