Reines El-Melloi Archisorte (ライネス・エルメロイ・アーチゾルテ, Rainesu Erumeroi Āchizorute?, Rainess El-Melloi Archisorte) is the current head of the Archibald family after the death of Kayneth El-Melloi Archibald. She is a main character in Lord El-Melloi II Case Files.
While it was on the brink of collapse, Waver Velvet's actions helped to revive the Archibald house, and he was then named as "Lord El-Melloi II" as a form of gratitude. At the bottom of the family's hierarchy at the time, she "blamed" him for causing the situation and claimed "you better serve me for your entire life," much to the former's chagrin.
She is around fifteen years old.
She treats Lord El-Melloi II as a servant and refers to him as her brother.

Introduction - Lord El-Melloi II
Great Big Ben Londonster.
The man that female students named as the #1 man they'd like to get laid by, and so on.
A famous lecturer in the Clock Tower with many nicknames.
He doesn't have any problems in declaring he's an archmagus, but he's hopelessly average as a magus.
But, his skill as a lecturer dominates the rest, and is the best person at detecting the hidden talent of others and training it.
There are no magi that were his students that hadn't obtained the rank of Grand, and it's even been said that if he gathered his students together, the power chart in the Clock Tower would change.
But he himself isn't the ambitious sort and has said,
"What a load of codswallop. Why should I, stuck at the 4th tier I still be, have to bloody look after other people?"
Well, so, in that sense, he doesn't really want to get involved with his students.
Back when he was an apprentice, he'd been the very embodiment of the "narcissist that doesn't doubt he's a genius", but an incident some ten years ago had led him to change his attitude, and since then, the result of persistent effort for a spoiled brat led him to be called the professor.
As far as being a talent production, his works are regarded as the greatest masterpieces of their time, but El-Melloi II doesn't really seem to care about that, probably because he's more interested in being a successful magus himself.
So anyhow, as a lecturer, he has zip interest in his mega popularity.
...Rather, he's irritated by that fact and so has for several years has been walking inside the institute with a constantly cranky look to him. Or so they say.
Speaking of which, El-Melloi II isn't his real name but a name given to him by the current head of the Archibald house.
The custodian (sponsor) of Rin after she went to study in London. The condition being "I will not give you one ounce of instruction. Eh well, I will at least send letters of recommendation to the other departments".
He really hates Japan and Japanese, but his sole pleasures are Japanese games. A petit bourgeois that you really can't hate.
And so, while being internally excited, he tried to bring this up to the complete game dunce Rin,
"Maybe you might..... You know, you should be familiar with that town. That place right between Ueno and Asakusa...."
Only to be given an instant answer from Rin that not only did she have no interest in Akihabara, but she had no interest in even Nihonbashi.
And so he got pissed off instead.
"Fuck! You're the worst Japanese in the world."
The person that took down the Fuyuki Holy Grail war.

…But it would be too much to leave it at just that. She is the legitimate successor of the El Melloi clan. She is Lord El Melloi II’s younger stepsister. Her existence was hinted at in the El Melloi II entry of “Character material” which was published in 2006. In this series, she made a grand appearance along with her mercury maid Trimmau.
She only has a minor supporting role in this work, so her character was made a bit sweeter and childish than other works. Her hiding in a cardboard box and shouting “Boo!” with a hearty laugh is an excellent indication of this.
When her predecessor Kayneth went off in high spirits with his fiancée Sola-Ui to participate in the Holy Grail War and ended up magnificently having the table turned on him, Reines apparently had a dispute with the Sophia-Ri family, and she is still on bad terms with them even today.
