Rinne (燐子, Servants, lit. "light-bearing child") are beings who act as servants for certain Crimson Denizens. They are created when a Denizen blows Power of Existence into an object of this world. Rinne are unstable existences and require a constant replenishment of Power of Existence from their master. They can consume humans and give the Power of Existence they had gathered to their master, who can convert it for their usage in order to survive. They usually possess the same color of Flame as the Denizen who created them. Without their master, they will disappear because they are unable to convert the Power of Existence for their own usage. As noted by Shana when she is incarcerated in the Seireiden and stripped of her powers, though the Rinne are usually weak enough to be easily dealt with by Flame Haze, they are still powerful enough to easily dispose of normal humans.
