Reimi Saionji (レイミ・サイオンジ, Reimi Saionji) is the deuteragonist of Star Ocean: The Last Hope. She serves as the main protagonist's love interest of the story.


Star Ocean: The Last Hope

A young woman from the Saionji family, one of the most prestigious on Earth. Her parents serve as board members of the Space Development Division of the USTA. Upon passing the USTA's examination, she was selected along with Edge Maverick as a member of the inaugural SRF team. A woman of both literary and martial talent, Reimi always looks out for those around her. Her skill with the bow is second to none, having mastered both Western and Asian forms of archery, and she uses it as her weapon of choice in battle. Friends with Edge since her childhood, she grew up with him like a sister, though her heartfelt concern for his well-being suggests a different sort of relationship may be blossoming.

Reimi may wear a bright, constant smile, but she's often very hard for herself, never complaining about her lot in life. Even so, she sometimes finds carrying the burden of the secret behind her birth to be nearly unbearable. She, along with Edge and Crowe F. Almedio, are Seeds of Hope-- superhumans who were born with enhanced DNA. The environmental adaptation and cell-regeneration abilities she developed were first brought to light after a childhood accident; the reaction from others at the scene was enough to traumatize young Reimi. Upon learning the truth behind her birth, she resolved never to tell anyone, bearing the pain of the secret all by herself. She cursed her own existence, unable to accept herself for who she was, and she'll continue to carry that pain with her until the day comes when her powers are finally accepted.

She slaps Edge on several occasions, including when they were reunited after his supposed death.


In Reimi's ending (shown if the player has enough affinity with her), Edge and Reimi are shown together on the new Transportation-Calnus two years after the events on Nox Obscurus. Wondering what their friends are up to, Edge assures her that they'll meet them again one day. After all, they're bound too, traveling across the universe together with each other. Reimi takes Edge's hand, and says that she'll be with him forever, no matter what happens (or what he says). Edge takes Reimi's hand back and nods, holding hands the two face the front of the ship, as Edge declares to the Star Ocean their advancement.

This also unlocks the Achievement/Trophy "Reimi's Ending" and is one of the prerequisites to viewing Crowe's ending.

It is hinted at that Edge and Reimi is either engaged or married as rings can be seen on their fingers during the scene.

Being an archer, Reimi is a long-range physical fighter. She has only two close range battle skills. Her high critical hit rate combined with the large number of hits caused by her skills makes her an extremely damaging party member. However, she is still a long range fighter, making her quite fragile against direct enemy assaults. She can compensate by being able to dodge and shoot at the same, being one of only two characters who can still attack while dodging (the other being Bacchus). In the hands of a skilled player, Reimi can stay well out of danger and dish out a lot of damage with her special attacks.

Reimi is also proficient at Cooking, which allows her to cook food for her crew at Item Creation.
