- —Online description
Rem is a seventeen-year-old girl with shoulder-length brown hair and red eyes. She wears the uniform of Akademeia, which consists of a black jacket with gold shoulder pads and white-laced cuffs, a red plaid skirt hemmed with black lace and the red mantle of Class Zero. She wears black thigh-high socks and Mary Jane shoes. Rem wears pink frilled panties with a ribbon on the front. Her summer uniform (夏服, Natsufuku?) has a black vest over a white blouse, a black plaid skirt with two interlocking belts and a small bow, and Class Zero's red mantle. She wears a pair of black gloves and white socks. Her formal uniform (礼服, Reifuku?) has 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.
This well-mannered and kind-hearted girl recently transferred into Class Zero from Class Seventh. Rem is a terrible liar—even though she insists otherwise: try as she may, she is absolutely unable to fool her closest friends. Friends since childhood, she and Machina maintain a playful academic rivalry. (To date, she has outperformed him on all written exams.)
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. She is considered mature and rational. Serving as a pillar of support and calming factor for Machina, Rem tries to be cheerful, encouraging, and level-headed, even through tough times. She is emotionally resilient, loyal, and considerate and sensitive of her friends' feelings, going as far as to hide her own pain to not burden her classmates. Rem cares for Machina, and looks out for him. As childhood friends, they work well together and understand each other better than anyone else.
In Final Fantasy Agito, Rem is a member of Class Seventh and dons a pink mantle.
She can be found in the Sorcery Division during the morning, afternoon and night.
Seriously, though. I can't believe Class Zero is real! My friends and I were talking about categorizing you guys into an 'urban legend' from next year.
- —Rem upon meeting Class Zero
When she was a little girl, Rem contracted an incurable illness. Rather than make her friends worry she decided to keep her condition a secret. As it progresses, the disease causes degeneration and loss of nerve cells inside the brain, ultimately leading the body to stop functioning.
When Rem's village was attacked by the Militesi Empire, she took refuge with her childhood friend Machina Kunagiri in his home. Machina's mother hid them in a closet while Militesi soldiers invaded the house. Rem and Machina witnessed his mother being shot. A soldier found the kids in the closet, but they escaped through the window and ran away. They stopped on a hill, looking back to watch their village burning.
Years later, Rem becomes a student at Akademeia as a member of Class Seventh. A year ago Rem was reunited with Machina, whom she had not seen in seven years despite both being in the same academy as neither knew the other was there. Agito Cadets would train by participating in combat simulations against their classmates, and during an experimental inter-class drill, Machina and Rem were selected as representatives for their respective classes. They were surprised to see each other and from that day forth the two became best friends, spending time together before and after their lectures.
As Militesi Empire attacks Akademeia, Rem and Machina confront the White Tiger Crystal l'Cie Qun'mi in Akademeia's arena. They are easily overpowered when Qun'mi activates her crystal jammer cutting Rem and Machina from the Vermilion Bird Crystal rendering them unable to use magic. The two are rescued by Ace, Seven, and Jack.
Rem and Machina are transferred into Class Zero to aid in the war effort. Rem is amazed Class Zero can circumvent the effect of the crystal jammer, and wonders how that works. Class Zero do not draw their magic power from the Vermilion Bird Crystal like most of the denizens of the dominion, but from the substance known as phantoma they harvest from those felled in battle. Class Zero's benefactor and the doctor at Akademeia, archsorceress Arecia Al-Rashia, is disdainful of Rem and Machina joining Class Zero, deeming them inferior to her handpicked cadets, and asks Ace to conceal the truth of phantoma from Rem and Machina, letting the duo only to know it is the source of their magic power.
When the two speak with Seven and Deuce, Rem remarks 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 he hasn't forgotten. She goes on to say that she still keeps the Knowing Tags of the people from their village. Machina wishes he had been stronger, but Rem answers they were only children and there was nothing they could do. On a lighter note, she asks if he remembers his promise to become strong to protect her. When he replies 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 pretends to be offended.
Rem still suffers from the incurable illness that will eventually kill her. She has only been able to remain active thanks to a powerful drug. Although she doesn't know when her time will run out, she is determined to use what little time she has left to serve the Vermilion Bird. Arecia, as a doctor, tells Rem that the medication she is on is ineffectual, and that her symptoms are becoming more severe. She says Rem doesn't have a lot of time left. Despite this, Rem wishes to stay in Akademeia with Machina and Class Zero and fight against Militesi, because she feels it wrong to helplessly wait for death. Arecia prepares new medication for her, but says she may experience 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.
When the cadets are sent to sabotage the imperial magitek armor program they get orders to cease fire due to a newly wrought armistice mid-mission. Kurasame travels to the imperial capital as Chancellor Khalia Chival VI's aide and negotiates for the cadets' safety, and afterward explains the situation to them: the empire had proposed peace before the cadets' mission was underway, but they could not contact them in time to halt it. The cadets disagree with the treaty, especially Machina, positing that the empire has no right to ask for peace for being the initial aggressor.
The cadets meet Queen Andoria who explains that peace is the Will of the Crystals, and that if the cadets oppose it, it would only lead to Tempus Finis. The cadets struggle accepting that what they have been fighting for is against the Crystal's will, with Rem pondering if all their efforts have been pointless. Machina asks if Rem is fine but she says she is merely tired and thus decides against exploring the imperial city.
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 Militesi 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 Militesi 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 Rursan Warriors, Rem is made a Vermillion Bird l'Cie to ensure the coming of the Agito. As a result, Rem overpowers who she believes to be a White Tiger 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 Akademeia, 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 Siphon Sphere and Siphon Delta can essentially recover all of Rem's MP if used on an enemy's Killsight. 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 become 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 become the most powerful character among the party.

|Trouble with the audio sample?|
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 as an unlockable character, and is unlocked by collecting White Crystal Shards.
She is a Defense oriented character.
