Please, God I hate so much. Grant me power. For the first time, I want the Innocence so much.

—Lenalee before forcibly synchronizing with the Innocence

Please note that this is the D.GrayMan Encyclopedia's article on the exorcist in D.Gray-man, if you are looking for the article on the prototype character in Zone then you should head to Lenalee (Zone).

Lenalee Lee  (リナリー・リー,Rinarī Rī) is one of the main characters of D.Gray-Man. She is an Exorcist and member of the European Branch of the Black Order. Lenalee was the assistant Branch Chief of the European Branch. She is also the younger sister of the Black Order's Chief Officer, Komui Lee. She was previously a member of Marian Unit, but she is now a member of Nine Unit.


Lenalee Full

Lenalee's uniforms tend to feature short bottoms for her Dark Boots.

Lenalee is a somewhat tall, lithe young woman. She has black hair (dark green in the anime)[1] and black eyes (purple in the anime) with a fair complexion and she also tends to carry herself very well. Cross Marian has noted that she has a "C" cup bra size[2]. Lenalee's hair has often been described as beautiful, and for most of her life she wore it long and in two high pigtails, likely because Komui was quite fond of it. After she had most of it burned off on a mission, it stayed at a short, boy-ish cut for a while, but she has been letting it grow back out to honor the wishes of Anita and her brother; after the transfer of the European Branch, she was seen wearing it chin-length, and once it became long enough to style she started to wear it at a chin-length bob. Recently, her hair has started to grow past her shoulders again and has gained a bit of body, and while she has taken to wearing it up in two clips reminiscent of her old pigtail style, she still leaves most of it down.
Lenalee New Uniform

Lenalee in her new uniform.

Lenalee's uniforms are always comprised of tight, short jackets with long sleeves and either short skirts or short shorts; this is to free her legs up for her use of her Dark Boots, which require the full length of her legs for her fighting style. When her uniforms feature skirts, Lenalee wears tight short shorts underneath them. Her most recent uniform is actually a jacket long enough to pass for a short dress that ends in a frilled shirt, and she still wears a concealing garment underneath to cover her undergarments.

Until her Innocence crystallized, Lenalee tended to wear her Dark Boots, which originally took the form of thigh-high boots and later turned into high-heeled shoes, wherever she went, to the point where, when she was forced to go without them, she realized that the Innocence had always been heavy and painful on her feet. Recently, her Innocence crystallized, leaving two permanent, cross-shaped stigmata scars on the fronts of her ankles; now, her Dark Boots take the form of two blood-red rings around her ankles, and she tends to wear high stockings and heels.



Lenalee's golem

Lenalee's golem is a black one with bat-like wings. It has an hexagonal and vertical shape. The up and down faces are the smaller with the four other ones being equal. It has one big eye with only a pupil without iris.


Lenalee is a kind and caring young woman who treasures her friends and those she comes to think of as "family" more than anything else in the world; in fact, Lenalee's view of the "world" is comprised completely of those around her, and when someone dies, she sees it as a piece of her "world" getting destroyed. Because of this view, Lenalee can be quick to anger especially when her friends and family take what she feels to be unnecessary risks. Because of this, people tend to try to avoid upsetting her.[3] Having suffered a traumatizing childhood, Lenalee tends to break quickly when confronted by those who were part of her dark past, and she hates some of her superiors and their ideals so fervently she once declared that she hated the Innocence and even God. It is noted by Cross Marian that she used to bottle up all her emotions inside, but is much better currently at letting them out. Lenalee is so frightened of losing those around her that she suffers recurring nightmares of the Order being destroyed and everyone around her disappearing. One of Lenalee's biggest regrets is the time she left Allen behind to save a girl when Allen told her to, and not being able to be at Allen's side when he was fighting Suman, and was "killed" by Tyki Mikk.

Despite her past, Lenalee has shown that she can have the conviction to cast the things that scare her aside so she can fight to defend her family, having promised her Innocence and God that she would fight however long they asked of her as long as she could return to her brother's side (this conviction led to her Innocence cyrstalizing), and having even been willing to let Hevlaska implant her Innocence into her body to attempt to force a synchronization, despite having had a synchronization rate below ten percent the last time she had worn her Dark Boots and despite having known that, if she failed, she would become a Fallen One.

Apart for that, Lenalee is a nice girl who easily gets along with other people. She is polite and generous, enjoying making coffee for the science division. She can have a strong character when she is offended going as far as hitting people. Lenalee has shown to be able to display resentment when Allen almost self-sacrificed and she blamed him for not considering her his friend. She shunned him until he asked for her forgiveness.

Lenalee as a child

Lenalee being taken from Komui.

After Lenalee's parents were killed by an Akuma and she was found to be an Accommodator, she was forcibly taken from her brother, Komui. Lenalee has claimed to not remember much of her life before joining the Order.[6]

Lenalee received instruction from a General and a severe professor. The general died when she was very young so she has few memories of them. Kanda later joined her in the class so she was not the only pupil anymore[7].

During her time at the Order, separated from her brother, Lenalee witnessed a young boy, who appeared to be about her age, being forcibly bonded with a shard of Innocence by Hevlaska, the boy being a relative of an Accommodator and thus believed to be an Accommodator candidate, himself.[8] Though she saw the boy become a Fallen One, Lenalee did not know what became of him afterwards, Hevlaska having refused to disclose the information to her.[9]

During her forced stay at the Order, Lenalee tried to escape several times, several of these attempts having been thwarted by Malcolm C. Lvellie and CROW members. These incidents became the source of Lenalee's negative feelings towards the Inspector.[10]


Lenalee being restrained after her breakdown.

Eventually, the stress of her situation caused Lenalee to have a mental breakdown and she had to be kept restrained. Not long after, Komui joined the European Branch and was allowed to meet with Lenalee after having been separated from her for almost four years.[11] Over time, with Komui's help, Lenalee began to think of the Order as her home, and everyone in it as her family.[12]

With the Noah and Akuma keeping the other Exorcists distracted, the Earl attempted to destroy Lenalee's Innocence. Allen returned from the Asian Branch by way of the original Noah's Ark and repelled the Earl with his incredible new Crown Clown Anti-Akuma Weapon just in time to rescue Lenalee and force the enemies to retreat.[38]

Afterwards Krory stays behind to hold the Noah and Lenalee is forced to go ahead despite her protestation and worryings.

While climbing the stairs with the others she thinks about her own weakness to the point of saying louadly "I must keep fighting".To encourage each others they joke about what they're going to do when they're back. This leads to a rather inappropriate comment of Lavi and an interrogated look from Lenalee. They finally reach the top tower and have a dinner with the Noah.She sits between Allen and Lavi. As she is still worrying, Lavi tells to take upon herself. After a discussion, Lenalee is threatened by a tease, Allen destroys it and attacks Tykki.

Lenalee and Yuu

Lenalee meditating with Kanda

Upon her return to the Black Order's Headquarters, Hevlaska removed the Innocence from Lenalee's legs, to find that her Innocence changed into a black liquid and has drop to 10% synchronization.[41] This puzzled the many members of the Order, including Hevlaska herself. 


Lenalee and Allen working together against the Level 4 Akuma.

When a Level 4 Akuma began assaulting the Order, Lenalee expressed a true desire to re-sync with her Innocence, which at that point truly began to express sentience. Her Innocence went to Lenalee, still in liquid form, which she drank, causing a large amount of her blood to exit her body through cross-shaped cuts on her ankles (which look similar to the cross on Allen Walker's left hand).[42] Her blood then coalesced into a vague angelic form before spreading over her legs and taking on the form of new Dark Boots. With her new weapon, together with Allen's help, she defeated the Level 4 Akuma. Lenalee's new boots were thought to be a Parasitic-type because they are easier to control with her emotions, noted by Lenalee herself[43] However, they did not change her physical appearance, therefore they were called an evolved Equipment-type, a "Crystal-type".[44] They seem to be very strong considering she fought on-par with a Level 4 Akuma without using any special techniques.

Destruction of the Black Order arc

During the HQ move, Lenalee began talking like a cat (along with Bookman) due to a potion that Miranda accidentally dropped along with the things she was holding, being one of the few Exorcists that were effected from strange potions.[45]Kanda mentioning that if Komui finds out about about his sister, things would go down hill for them. Lenalee including the guys and the rest of the staff members was greeted by Matron. Allen, who was still explaining why he could see in the dark so well, is suddenly bit by the nurse along with Miranda, starting an all out biting frenzy turning most of the staff members into mindless zombies. Lenalee together with Kanda and Bookman were separated from the rest of the group and was on the verge of being attacked but quickly used Dark Boots to jump, grabbing hold of the child-like Kanda and Bookman, to safety.


Lenalee possessed by the Ghost

Once noticing Allen defending the rest of the group and knocking the zombies back while apologizing, they regrouped and headed for an exit only to find her brother sitting beside a cabinet along with his robot, Komurin EX, who then reveals that he was the one who created the virus. Everyone in the room excluding Lenalee and Link then tries to tie down Komui but was then back-fired by his unknown strength. After the blame-game wore off, they realized that a prescription drug called Komuvitamin D was causing people to turn into zombies. When they were off searching and thinking, a zombiefied General Socalo came crashing through the window attacking Allen later revealing the other generals who also weren't themselves. later on after the missile explosion from Komurin EX, Lenalee was once again separated from everyone except her brother, Reever and one of the staff members. She awoke only to be tied up along with the rest by Reever who was being manipulated by a ghost who told them that she was the one who gave out the virus. After the ghost's story of her past was told, Komui along with Lenalee understood her past and while reminiscing, the ghost shot out of Reever still wanting revenge and started to take control of Lenalee.

Everyone in the Order was now mostly infected and all that was left was Komui. Right before Komui gets attacked he starts yelling out a name followed by others he started to list. The Ghost who was in Lenalee's body realizes that the names that were called out were the ones who were experimented to death including herself. Komui saying that even if the ghost left, he would never forget her and the people that were used which made her feel much more happier but was later attacked by Krory who had first to have been infected by the her. Komurin EX intervenes and injects a vaccine to Krory before his attack and turn him back to normal but was once again infected due to his longing for Allen and Lavi who had bitten him along with Komui and Lenalee being bitten as well with the ghost inside still active. She tells Komui thank you before both of them black out. Later, Bak Chan who came back was able to cure them all of the infection with another vaccine.

Disappearance of Cross Marian arc

Shortly after the events surrounding the "Black Order's Destruction" she travels with Allen, Johnny, and Komui to the new Headquarters[46] At this point, she seems to have begun growing her hair out again because her hair reaches her shoulders now.

On their way, she and Johnny mentioned to Allen that he does not act as politely when he talks to them probably because he is comfortable with talking to them and they have become much closer. Shortly after arriving, Allen Walker was granted a brief meeting with Cross Marian. Upset by how suddenly and harshly Allen was taken away, she waited up late for his return to see what was wrong. She waits in the library with Johnny, they both are very worried about Allen during the meeting and Lenalee notes that the rain isn't stopping.[47]

Despite the revelation concerning the 14th Noah, Lenalee still deeply cares for Allen, and she does not feel uncomfortable being around him as shown when she went to check on him after completing her mission, and was worried about his fever.[50] However, she seems to have noticed that when Allen originally woke up, he seemed like a different person, and is very concerned about his welfare. Howard Link, who is waiting outside the door berates Lenalee for sleeping in there as he could not be in a room with a lady in an immodest position and therefore couldn't carry out his duties.

Lenalee, Allen, Goushi and Tokusa travel to the Asia branch to find Kanda as they had been assigned a new mission to Istanbul.[51] She is later seen in Greece with Klaud Nine, Koushi, and Timothy Hearst faced with a Noah in the shape of a Dragon.[52]

cells, she is blasted by Koushi.[53] Because of the Third Exorcists going loose by Alma's rage against the Black Order, several of the Exorcists, possibly including Lenalee, are forced to kill the Third Exorcists before they made any more damage. Lenalee is seen crying in shock as she kneels before an impaled Koushi while hearing the Noah's announcement that Kanda has awakened the 14th in Allen and that Allen will become a seed of destruction to the Order.

Seed of Destruction arc

Lenalee returns from Leskos and visits Noise Marie and Chaoji in the sanatorium. She aknowledges with shock that Kanda as well as Lavi and bookman have disappeared and Allen has been sent to prison. While Allen is in prison, at the Black Order HQ Lenalee is seen in the cafeteria unable to eat while worrying about her missing friends. Reever gives her some food and tells her to eat. Seeing their wounds she asks what happened to them and they answered they got beaten up by Lvellier's guards when they tried to plead for Allen's cause. Seing the scientists fights, she recalls Allen, Kanda and Lavi fighting and she starts to eat to the fullest.

She later hears the explosion in the dungeon and shows a very worried look. Once Allen is declared an enemy, she chases after him to convince him to stay. She is sure that he must have been framed by the Noah as he would never betray them. She shouts his name as she jumps in the night. In the anime she has to destroy a few Akumas in her run. She is later stopped by Tokusa whom she has to dodge an attack of. She tells him to let her pass as he is an exorcist too but he exposes why they thirds do all of this.

She finally finds Allen as he was just about to leave. She asks him where he goes and tells he is not allowed to open a gate like this. Allen dismisses with a joke and he embraces but tells her he cannot but says that the order will always be his home and that he loves her and everyone back at the Order. After that he leaves and she cries out his name.

Searching for A.W. arc


Lenalee in France

Three months later, she is next seen in France with Noise Marie. He told her Johnny had tried to leave the Order to help Allen, disguising it as helping his grandmother, but was not allowed to do so due to new guidelines. Lenalee questions what it means to be 'nakama', upset she couldn't do anything to stop Allen and seemingly choosing the Order over him. Marie reminds her of her bonds with other people in the order, such as her brother and Lavi, and reveals his own bonds are why he is still there. No matter the distance, their bonds mean two people stay connected.

They begin to head back to HQ but on the way, they pass children playing football. She and Marie spot someone familiar - Kanda. Upon being asked why he came back by Marie, Kanda doesn't answer and instead questions why he has no 'welcome back'.

As they are welcome back to the Order they inform Kanda on everything that's happened in the past three months. As Kanda's Mugen evolves into a Crystal type, she grabs his Innocence and asks if he's sure he wants to be an Exorcist again after finally escaping them. He says he's sure and when his Innocence turns into liquid, he drinks it from her hands, much to her bashfulness (and Bak and Komui's anger). She watches as he gets a new Mugen.


Lenalee in Allen's memories

She, along with Noise Marie, keep the Order and Komui at bay about Kanda's and Johnny's location so they can find Allen. According to Tiedoll, both Marie and Lenalee may be taken into custody for helping Kanda search for Allen in secret.

Lenalee is seen in Allen's memories reminding him her last words while he is in Nea's inner world.[54]

Powers and Abilities

Bilinguialism : Lenalee speaks at least two languages fluently: English and Chinese.

Bureaucrat skills : Lenalee used to be Assistant Branch Chief. As a consequence she did a lot of paperwork instead of her brother, and managed to do this in spite of her duties as an exorcist.

Physical Prowess : Lenalee is noted to have a "good punch".

Cooking : Lenalee has cooking as a hobby. [55]What's more she often makes coffee for the science division which is noted to be excellent.

Enhanced Speed: Even without her Dark Boots activated, Lenalee is extremely quick and agile. This, of course, is only enhanced when her Innocence is activated.


Lenalee's Innocence has been believed to be the Heart because of how her innocence saved her after her fight with the Level 3 Akuma, though this has not been confirmed yet.
Bio lenalee

Dark Boots level 1

Dark Boots (黒い靴(ダーク・ブーツ), Dāku Būtsu?): An equipment-type Innocence, Lenalee's initial version of the Dark Boots take the form of a pair of thigh-high boots. When activated the top part of the boots unwrap to her knees and a green stripe is shown down her leg from the top to the bottom and a green energy is emitted from her ankles. She is capable of great acrobatic feats and can easily deal with Level 1 Akuma. It seems to dramatically increase her leg strength, allowing her to jump vast distances, land from high falls uninjured and deliver devastating kicks.

  • Waltz: Mist Wind (円舞「霧風」, Enbu: Kirikaze?): Lenalee stirs up a destructive tornado with a whirling kick of her Dark Boots, which can serve as an offensive or defensive move. It was seen that Level 1 and 2 Akuma can't withstand being in the tornado as they will immediately explode on contact. [56]
Level 2

Dark Boots level 2

Level Two: After her synchronization with her Innocence increases, Lenalee's boots are modified to enhance her abilities. When released Lenalee gains more weight, power and speed. The green energy strips are replaced with circles with a cross mark on them, and her boots now have knee pads and straps around her thighs. She can fight on par with a Level 3 Akuma with her Innocence in this form. Before her boots evolved her synchronization rate was 86%.
  • Burden, Acoustic Technique: Sound Shackles (音響の踏技 「音枷」, Onkyō no Tōgi: Otokase?): Lenalee becomes able to interface with sound waves, solidifying the sound of each step into a surface, which allows her to travel at the speed of sound.[57]
  • Burden, Water Surface Technique: Water Shackles (水上の踏技 「水枷」, Suijō no Tōgi: Mizukase?): Lenalee becomes able to interface with water, enabling her to walk on liquid surfaces.[58]
  • Falling Technique: Iron Shackles (失墜の踏技 「鉄枷」, Shittsui no Tōgi: Tetsukase?): Upon maximum invocation, Lenalee's power condenses onto her Dark Boots, meshing them into a morass of blades, carrying an extremely high weight. Assisted by Eshii's gravity shackles, this attack hit with the weight of 40,000 metric tons, which is equivalent to a meteor.[59]

Dark Boots crystal type's first invocation

Crystal Type (結晶型, Kesshō-gata?): After Lenalee's synchronization rate with her Innocence fell to dangerously low levels, it was brought into question whether or not the Innocence was starting to reject her as an Accommodator. Hevlaska noted that this was not so, but that it seemed, instead, that the will of the Dark Boots was changing, and that it may be preparing to evolve.[60]

When attempting to merge with her Innocence again, the cube form it had taken liquefied, and Lenalee took this as an invitation to ingest the Innocence directly. The liquid passed through her body and emerged from two cross-shaped wounds on her ankles, one on each, where it merged with the blood that spilled out with it and reformed around her legs.


Dark Boots crystal type deactivated

When at rest, the newly formed Innocence takes the appearance of bangles around her ankles,[61] but when activated, the boots take the form of thigh-high stiletto boots with knee pads and slightly separated cuisses for her upper legs.[62] When she wishes to accelerate beyond the boot's normal speeds, flaps at the back of both of her heels unfurl[63] to increase her speed dramatically, though initially she has trouble gauging how quickly she's moving.

Dark Boots crystal type heels unfurl to release energy for massive acceleration

Lenalee notes that the boots don't react as her initial equipment type boots did, and rather than having to use her own body to tell the boots what to do, they seem to react simply to her thoughts.[64]

Later analysis reveals that the new boots aren't actually 'crystals' at all, but rather an unidentified metal made from merging Lenalee's blood with the Innocence, and because of this (theoretically speaking) as long as Lenalee has blood in her body she should be able to regenerate her Dark Boots by using more of her blood, even if the boots she's wearing at the time were to break.[65]

Komui Lee: Komui is her older brother and is a very important person to her. When she was kidnapped by the Order, she hated them and it took four years for her brother to find her and join the Order, stating he would never leave her side. This is what allowed Lenalee to calm down and work alongside the Order, along with synchronize with her Innocence to protect and be by her friend's and brother's side. The two care greatly for each other, though Lenalee gets annoyed by Komui's laziness, irresponsibility and his overprotective nature towards her. Komui cares extremely for his sister to the point of obsession, threatening any boy that dares try to date her or shows interest in her, even crying and hugging her stating he didn't want her to get married. However, after the 14th begins to awaken within Allen, their relationship has become stained as Lenalee tries to search for and protect Allen behind her brother's back, while Komui is hunting Allen as a member of the Noah and no longer views him as a member of the Order.

Yu Kanda: Lenalee is one of the very few people Kanda does not act obnoxiously towards. Even if he is sometimes rude to her, he is never shown to act violently towards her. In fact, Lenalee was one of the very first people Kanda met after the Alma Karma incident and he grew up by her side, rediscovering the world after his rebirth. He deeply cares for her, and he is the only person who happens to shorten her name by calling her "Lena". His reaction when Cross got too close to Lenalee shows a protective side of him, similar to that of a big brother to his sister. Likewise, Lenalee cares for him greatly and he is part of "her world". She is the only person who dare hit Kanda to calm him without him getting angry. It should be noted that every time Lenalee wants to hide or run away from problems (Lvellie being one of those problems) she goes into Kanda's room.

Reever Wenhamm:

Noise Marie:  When Lenalee was completely desperate, having been forcefully brought to the Order she completely snaped. Marie's kindness contributed to get her out of her mental breakdown. They deeply care for each others and have a strong friendly relationship. Lenalee highly trusts Marie and easily confides in him about her problems. Marie on his side is a listening ear to her and he comforts her.

Head Nurse: Head Nurse and Lenalee seem to be close companions to each other. Lenalee felt vulnerable enough with Head Nurse to reveal what was going on in her mind and heart regarding her feelings towards Innocence and God, breaking down in her arms as she did so after Head Nurse had given her her shoes after noticing her bare feet and Lenalee noticed just how painful her innocence were. Head Nurse has shown kindness to Lenalee by being a shoulder she could cry on and by showing concern for her safety when the level four attacked.


Lenalee with Kanda and Lavi

Lavi: Lenalee considers Lavi like A dear friend of hers and is very scared of losing him as shown with her panic during his fight with Road. She is caring and friendly, being amused by his jokes even though she can be angry at him and his tosh sometimes. Even if Lavi was not supposed to attach to people, it is shown that Lenalee is special to him, being very worried for her when she was in a state of depression to the point of shouting on her to recover and saying that it reminds him very bad memories when she doesn't come back after her fight with Eshi. Generally Lavi is kind to her, enjoying to teasing her even if less than Allen and Lavi. He often makes inappropriate comments about her romantic life, especially regarding Komui. Some comments and reaction of him may imply that Lavi is not indifferent to her charm. In the Gray arc their relationship is listed as "?".
