Rin Tohsaka (遠坂 凛, Tohsaka Rin?, Romanized as Rin Tousaka in the English version) is the Master of Lancer in Fate/Extra. She is a different person than the Rin Tohsaka that appears in Fate/stay night, but they are relatives part of the same lineage in the Fate/Extra universe. She is an activist that fights against the Harway family, so her reason to participate in the Holy Grail War is to stop Leo.
Rin is a member of the Tohsaka family that was mostly destroyed in the 1990s. She was active in the Middle East as a freelance engineer as of the 2030s. She was hired by the Resistance and came to be known as a hero after having participated in many liberation wars. Due to her actions, she is wanted by the plutocracy as an international terrorist. She initially worked with hacking & cracking, a data mining team, as an adviser of special technology over a period of three years. She managed to detect the attack on their group, and though she warned the other team members, she was the only survivor. The team prioritized whatever was most important, and due to their different roles, they focused on the equipment and data over their own lives while she escaped.
Their main purpose was accessing the Moon Cell and spreading the means to access it. The data they gathered was placed into a document that spread around, and while normal people could not utilize it, magi used it to enter the Holy Grail War. She gave an interview in the December 2032 issue of Fate/the Fact, an "Internet Deep Culture Magazine", where she explained her role in the group and talked about the nature of the Moon Cell. She was actively pressed into it by her master for public relation activities, and she was paid for doing it. She clearly states that "the Holy Grail War has begun."
Rin's Avatar is like her Fate/stay night counterpart, she has long black hair styled into twintails and aqua eyes. Her clothes are similar to her counterpart but with some differences instead of stockings she wears long black boots and instead of a red sweater a tight top with the same cross symbol. Underneath her skirt she has weapons.
However outside the Moon Cell in her true body she actually has long blond hair still styled into twintails and she has blue eyes.
In Fate/Extra CCC, Rin is initially seen in her Fate/Extra outfit but later when she joins the school council she wears wears a dark navy sailor school uniform with a red scarf, a pleated skirt, black stockings, and black shoes.
While she constantly puts Hakuno Kishinami down and claims that she will not help them, she still provides advice and guides them subtly. She is surprised every time they claim to lack knowledge, but always tells them what they are missing. She thought they simply relied on a powerful Noble Phantasm to win the first round, but claims to have to rethink her opinion of them after learning that they don't even have one.
She is actively against the Harweys and the Western European plutocracy, and even if she wasn't hired by the Resistance, she would still oppose it in her own way. She is against active war due to the potential waste of resources, and would rather focus on the conflict within the Moon Cell.
Rin first appears in the initial selection of the War as a student from class 2-B, known to be pretty, athletic, smart, and classy to all the males who adore her, and a "stuck up Ms. Perfect" to all the females who despise her. Despite being known to some as the most popular girl in the school, the contradictory nature of the area makes some people not know of her. She was not caught by the illusion of the school for very long, having managed to get past the brainwashing more quickly than most.
She chooses to forgo using the school uniform, and begins to examine the area. The initial protagonist happens to encounter her while searching for the rumor of "Little Red Rooftop" on the school roof. She attempts to inspect his form as an NPC before being warned by the system that direct interference with him is forbidden. She decides to take her leave, and vanishes before his eyes. She encounters Shinji at some point, and becomes physical with him after his aggressive attempts at flirting fail. She is noted by Mr. Kuzuki to be a very strong competitor when providing details to Leo, and they note that the Harways in Asia have voiced some concerns about her. Leo particularly notes that he dislikes her because her unruly behavior is unbecoming for the daughter of a noble family.
She first encounters Hakuno Kishinami after the end of the preliminary phase, and begins to study them as an NPC. Upon realizing they are an actual participant, she becomes greatly flustered and apologizes because she thought they looked too plain to be an actual person. She begins to help them after learning that they have no memories, but says that she won't become their ally.
There is eventually an event where Hakuno must make a choice of coming to the aid of either Rin or Rani VIII. Though both survive the encounter, the "rescued" participant will lose their Servant and aid Hakuno for the duration of the War. During Rani's path, Rin remains an enemy, and becomes Hakuno's opponent during the sixth round. After Lancer is defeated, she is stripped of her Command Spells and killed, though she expresses confidence that Hakuno would be able to defeat Leo.
When BB's shadow devoured all Master and NPC from the Tsukumihara Academy, Rin was chosen to be the first Sentinel. Rin would encounter Hakuno Kishinami on the first floor of Chapter 1. There, Rin declares herself as the "Queen of the Moon". Rin is first seen as the master of the Lancer. To face the real Rin, Hakuno had to collect three SG known as "Secret Garden", which divided into a number of levels. Once Hakuno collected all the SG, Hakuno and his/her Servant must dive into her mind to face her. Though after Lancer and Rin are defeated by Hakuno and his/her servant, Lancer abandons Rin and Rin joins the student council. When Rin joins the student council, she wears her alternate uniform.
Fate/Extra CCC Fox TailEdit
Rin's role in Fox Tail is similar to CCC, she supports Hakuno from the student council room.
While Magecraft has died out in the Extra universe, Magic Circuits are still used with hacking. Rin is called a natural by Kuzuki due to how quickly she managed to break through the illusion of Tsukumihara Academy compared to the others. He compares her to a wild Mouflon among a flock of sheep. Compared to Leo, Rin is superior in terms of offensive codecasts but Leo has the higher chance of victory.

 Fate/EXTRA material - Encyclopedia: Leonardo B. Harwey
Leonardo Bistario Harway.
Strongest Master who participated in the Holy Grail War.
Ever-victorious king whose every parameter is maxed out.
(By the way, though Rin is superior in terms of offensive codecasts
and Rani in terms of pure computational ability,
even if Rin and Rani challenge Leo together, he still has the higher chance of victory)
Though it’s unimaginable from his youth and mild demeanor, he is the next successor of the rulers of the world, the Harways.
A king in the making who is the result of inborn talent (including Magic Circuits) polished off by the Harways' harsh yet careful education.
Leo himself is more aware than anyone that he was desired as a ruler and raised to be a ruler.
A king is not someone who comes from the human world,
but one who is sent by the heavens to the earth.
Those who are born thus are said to possess regality.
Leo’s regality is “thorough ideal.”
One can say he is a lord of a level unattainable by the average person; someone who has overcome the contradiction of having discarded human feelings while full of humaneness, for the purpose of realizing a totalitarian society where people of unequal skills can live in equality.
Though he has had no freedom since birth, that he nevertheless has a calm personality is no doubt his innate nature.
If we say the protagonist represents change, offense,
then Leo is the character representing stagnation, defense.
Leo possesses no self-interest and wishes for the world to stabilize under the watch of the Harways.
His goal in seeking the grail is not “greater power” but “certain stability.”
If the Holy Grail ends up in the hands of someone other than himself, the conflict that would have otherwise concluded in ten years would extend to twenty years.
…...Even if a Master sent by the conglomerate emerges victorious, so long as the Holy Grail is “power on the national scale attained by an individual,” it will become the kindling of conflict.
In order to prevent that future, he himself went to the moon as a Master.
“Humanity will only exhaust itself even if it continues to change with no answer in mind. To find a new path for change before the world completely stagnates will doubtless be my next task.”
So Leo narrates.
That “the current regime of the conglomerate is mistaken”.......Tohsaka Rin’s contention was a problem that Leo had already long since pondered over.
To put it this way, the one who prepares for the doom that comes after in view of the answer of this path is Leo.
Meanwhile, the one who fights in attempt to change that answer is Rin.
To Leo, what should be prioritized is humanity’s continuation, not the reign of the Harways.
His ultimate goal in seeking the grail is a millenium of the next generation where people can live in safety.
However―――Leo, who knows neither the negative emotions of the weak, of humans, nor defeat, at the same time does not know the emotion of fear, and is unable to even imagine the possibility of defeat.
He will eventually come to know how distorted that is for a “human being.”
His way of accepting everything the way they are could not, even in his final moments, summon up the intrinsic essence of life―――the vitality in the face of adversity.
A Master who also appears in CCC.
Like Rin and Rani, he fell into the Far Side upon the conclusion of the fifth week.
Though his memories were sealed, even BB was unable to brainwash him, and he was trapped in the old school building. (simply not being able to go out)
Even knowing that his memories are sealed away,
“I mean, it is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and all, so let us simply carry on like this!”
he responds optimistically.
Although upon being defeated by the protagonist in Extra he learns the truth that “he is not perfect,” thereby truly becoming a king, he is fated to perish in that very instant.
In the Far Side, the boy king who had been unable to even converse with the protagonist due to the difference in values, enjoyed his brief experience of youth.
By the way, the only ones to whom Leo does not address with honorifics are AIs and artificial lives of human make. His attitude towards Sakura and Rani can be taken as cold, but Leo is interacting with them in full earnest, with acknowledgement of their identities.
