Appearance and PersonalityEdit
Rem is a seventeen-year-old girl with shoulder-length brown hair and red eyes. She wears the uniform of the Magic Academy Peristylium Suzaku, which consists of a black jacket with gold shoulder pads, a red plaid skirt hemmed with black lace, and the red mantle of Class Zero. She wears black thigh-high socks and black Mary Jane shoes. Rem's panties are pink and frilled with a bow-tie on the front.
Rem's first alternate outfit is the Magic Academy's summer uniform (夏服, Natsufuku?), consisting of a white blouse covered by a black vest, and a black plaid skirt with two interlocking belts, as well as Class Zero's red mantle. She also wears a pair of black gloves, and her socks are now white in color. A small bow can also be seen on Rem's skirt. Rem's second alternate outfit is the Magic Academy's formal uniform (礼服, Reifuku?), consisting of a red jacket with black shoulder pads and cuffs, a black pleated skirt hemmed with white lace, and a white mantle. She wears a pair of white gloves, and her socks are red in color.
Rem is moral, kind, and honest, and has an outstanding hidden talent for magic. Due to being a recent addition to the ranks of Class Zero, she isn't assigned any number. As one of the students of Class Zero, she is considered to be a mature and rational person. Serving as a pillar of support and a calming factor for Machina, Rem tries her very best to be cheerful, encouraging, and levelheaded, even through tough times. She is shown to be an emotionally resilient, loyal, and considerate person. Rem is especially sensitive of her friend's feelings, and goes as far as to hide her own pain so that she isn't a burden to her classmates.
Rem cares deeply for Machina, and is constantly concerned and looking out for him. As childhood friends, they work well together and understand each other better than anyone else.
When Rem's village is attacked by the Milites Empire, she takes refuge with her childhood friend Machina Kunagiri in his home. Machina's mother hides them away in a closet while Milites soldiers invade the house. Rem and Machina both witness his mother being shot to death. A soldier later finds them in the closet, but they manage to escape through the window and run away. They stop on a hill, looking back to watch their village burning in flames.
Years later, Rem is a student at the Magic Academy Peristylium Suzaku, as a member of Class Seven. A year before the game's story, Rem was reunited with Machina, whom she had not seen in seven years despite both being in the same Peristylium as neither knew the other was there.
At the start of the game, Rem and Machina confront the Byakko l'Cie Qun'mi in battle in the Peristylium's coliseum. They are easily overpowered when Qun'mi activates her Crystal Jammer, but are rescued by Ace, Seven, and Jack.
Later, both Rem and Machina are transferred into Class Zero to aid in the war effort. When the two are speaking with Seven and Deuce, Rem remarks that she was surprised by how much Machina had grown, as he was shorter than her when they last met. Machina comments that she has not changed at all.
Later, when Machina and Rem are alone, Rem asks if he still remembers their childhood together in the village and he replies that he hasn't forgotten. She goes on to say that she still keeps the Knowing Tags of the people from their village. Machina wishes that he had been stronger at that time, but Rem answers that they were only children and there was nothing they could do. On a lighter note, she then asks him if he remembers when he said that he would become strong to protect her. When he replies that he hasn't forgotten, she teases him by asking if he remembers asking her to become his wife, saying that she remembers the promise well. Embarrassed, Machina denies that he ever said so, and Rem teasingly pretends to be offended.
Rem suffers from an incurable illness that will eventually kill her. Arecia, as a doctor, tells Rem that the medication she is currently on isn't having much effect, and that her symptoms are more severe than before. She also says that Rem doesn't have a lot of time left to live. Despite this, Rem's wish is to stay at the Peristylium with Machina and Class Zero and still fight against Milites, because she feels it is wrong to helplessly wait for death. Arecia prepares new medication for her, but says that she may experience terrible pain at night as a side effect. Rem understands, and asks Arecia to keep her condition a secret from Class Zero, especially from Machina, though he is aware that there is something wrong with her.
After the death of Andoria, Rem is attacked by Celestia who believes Class Zero to be responsible for the queen's death. Machina runs to her defense, but is also overpowered. After Class Zero flees the Milites Empire and escapes to the woods, Rem appears as Machina awakes. When asking if she was hurt, Rem replies that she is fine. As the two meet with Class Zero, she is worried when Machina acts strangely, unaware that he feels something is watching him. When Machina yells at the other members of Class Zero about Izana's death, Rem holds him back and tells him to stop and have a rest. She expresses distress when he leaves.
When Rem is later approached, with Machina still absent, she coughs because of her illness. Cinque asks if she is alright, to which Rem replies that it's only asthma. Cinque expresses concern over Rem's involvement in future missions, but the latter reassures her she will consult Arecia. Afterwards, as Class Zero wonder where Machina is and if he ran into Byakko forces, Rem is anxious. She smiles in relief when Machina finally returns, telling him that she was worried about him. He apologizes for worrying her.
As Finis begins, after Zhuyu is defeated by the Lulusath Warriors, Rem is made a Suzaku l'Cie to ensure the coming of the Agito. As a result, Rem overpowers who she believes to be a Byakko l'Cie until his mask falls off, revealing his identity to be Machina. But by then, Rem is accidentally impaled on his rapier. Mortally wounded, a grieving Machina rushes to her side. Rem eventually dies while telling him not to forget her. Sometime later, Machina is found crystallized while embracing Rem. Despite this, Rem and Machina aid Class Zero in spirit during their final battle with Cid.
Sometime later, Arecia finds the crystallized pair and, under the suggestion of Tiz and Joker, revives them. By the time Machina and Rem return to the Peristylium, they find all of their classmates dead, having died prior to their arrival. Machina tries to wake them, but to no avail. Rem touches his arm and he squeezes her hand, and they stand looking out over the war torn remains of Rubrum. Supporting Machina as he goes on to rebuild their world after the nations' crystals lose their power, Rem eventually marries him and stayed by his side up to his final moments.
However, their actions in helping Class Zero change the fate originally intended for Orience inspires Arecia to alter the timestream by removing the four nations' crystals from history, creating an alternate ending where the war never occurred. This in turn allowed those who died in the war another chance at life. Rem is seen waking up on a bench in the gardens and stretches her arms as she looks at the sky with a smile on her face.

Rem dual-wields a pair of daggers in battle, but while her attack animation consists of quick slashes and stabs, her advantage does not lie in her physical strength, but her magic. Rem boasts the highest MP and magic stats in all four types. Her various conditions for the Magic Cancel ability allow her to cast spells quickly and instantly. In addition, she has several abilities that allow her to restore her MP and thus, continue casting magic. It should be noted that Osmose Venom and Osmose Field can essentially recover all of Rem's MP if used on an enemy's Kill Site. With timing, she should not have to worry about MP shortages.
If Rem is used progressively throughout the game, she can easily become a glass cannon, dealing high physical and magical damage. While HP and defense still becomes an issue for her, these problems can be countered via equipment. Coupled with her quick movement speed in battle, Rem boosts an above average chance of survival. Arguably, Rem can perhaps become the most powerful character among the party.

Rem's theme, self-titled "Rem Tokimiya", is a sad piece of string instruments and piano, with drums and guitar contributing to a subtle rock feel. The arranged version of her theme is slower and more sorrowful, comprised solely of piano and strings.
Another melancholic tune, "Machina and Rem", is her other theme which she shares with Machina, and combines both her and Machina's themes. Her theme is also rearranged in the track "Kind Tears" and included as part of the track "Type-0".
Rem appears on promotional card for Final Fantasy Trading Card Game depicting her in the summer outfit obtainable in Final Fantasy Type-0's demo. There are more cards depicting her in her official render.
