Rem is a beautiful young girl who works at the Roswaal mansion as a maid. Her life changes after meeting Subaru, and they develop a bond that turns into something special. I love how brave she is, but also see her more childish side with the way she fights with Subaru. She definitely is a girl you would want to have on your team in a fight!
