She is known for her red eyes and very long silver hair and her almost fragile appearance. She is extremely charismatic and Tamamura Tamao calls her a "princess" after hearing her speak for the first time. When she is in the iron maiden, she is naked except for an old-fashioned pink pajama pants. When in her armored soul form, Jeanne wears a purplish metallic leotard with four metallic protrusions on her midsection, an iron belt with a key lock in the center, a purplish cap with the Iron Maiden hat on the back of the headgear, wears sandals with spikes in her feet, a giant lock on her abdominal area like a chastity belt, and has what appear to be large thumbscrews on her hands.

During the mission to bring back Tao Ren, she wore a Victorian style dress and dress shoes. It is revealed that this is Jeanne's favorite dress, which was made with high quality materials by a very talented tailor. It's a little difficult to wear because of its ruffles and she would like to wear simpler clothes.

As an adult, Jeanne continues to wear her Victorian style dress, but after she married Ren and became a housewife, she cut her hair shorter and began wearing a simple blouse and dress and is often seen wearing a ruffled apron.

Jeanne's heart is noble and pious, but she knows nothing of the outside world because she has remained outside the lives of normal people since she was a child. She may seem a bit arrogant but she is pure and has no bad intentions. Her passionate hatred of Asakura Hao stems from the fact that she believes him to be the ultimate evil. Jeanne believes herself to be a martyr of sorts and is very gentle and compassionate towards the X-Laws, especially Lyserg Diethel, but she has become detached from humanity and is unable to see that everything is not black and white.

Jeanne kills anyone who stands in her way indiscriminately if they do not submit to her calls for peace. She believes that she is helping the world and that her actions will be justified by the end results.

In the aftermath of the Shaman Fights, Jeanne saw the error of her ways and embraced the belief that no one should kill, also raising her son to follow the same ideal as an ironclad rule. When confronted with Black Maiden, Jeanne even asked Shamash to impose the death penalty on herself to prevent Black Maiden from becoming a murderer.

Capabilities and powers

Jeanne, after Saigan Sati , has the closest Furyoku level to Hao, making her more powerful than she appears. She spends almost all of her time inside the iron maiden keeping her in a near death state, as she goes through constant periods of injury and then healing, to slowly increase her strength by gradually raising her Furyoku. It contains many sharp iron spikes and nails that pierce the flesh, causing great pain. There are so many spikes inside that even someone as thin as Jeanne still gets hurt.

Her iron maiden is made of solid iron and is quite heavy, however, it was easily crushed by one of the Patch Officers, Magna . It was then repaired and kept in a shed in Funbari Onsen until it was stolen by the YVS team.


Jeanne's guardian ghost is Shamash (Mash in the English version of the 2001 animated series and video games), the Babylonian god of justice. Shamash is a god-like spirit. She can use him to create torture devices to judge her opponent.

Jeanne can also bring back the dead with Shamash, who revives them with a kiss on the lips. Jeanne compares this method of resurrection to the story of Sleeping Beauty.



She was born on March 2, 1990, she is from Mont Saint-Michel, France, it is revealed that Jeanne was not really a savior with an omnipotent type of purity. She was an orphan taken by the first leader of the X-Laws, Luchist Lasso, who, alongside Marco Lasso, raised her to believe that she was a holy person, destined to destroy Hao. Jeanne, herself, is nothing more than an ordinary girl who has been given both powerful shamanic powers and a powerful guardian ghost.

Little is known about Jeanne's past history other than that she was an orphan. She was a French country girl with shamanic powers who was raised in an ancient monastery. She received a divine revelation at the age of ten while praying in a Catholic church. A cross of light appeared and a mysterious voice revealed to her that the world must be destroyed unless it is purged of an evil force. Recognizing that the evil force was Asakura Hao, Jeanne chose to become a shaman.

Shaman fights the second round

She boarded the patch plane bound for Patch Village and ended up somewhere in America. Not much is known about what she did or how she even got to Patch Village. She beat the three month deadline and teamed up with Marco and Lyserg Diethel to create Team XI. In her first game, her team was paired against the "Niles" team. When Lyserg would not kill their opponents, Jeanne asked Marco to throw her at Lyserg, hitting him. Jeanne decided to take the match back to Lyserg, so Marco unlocked the Iron Maiden and Jeanne went out. She Over Souled the Maiden and quickly trapped and killed Anatel Pokki. She then trapped Khafre Puljiz and Nakht Pitrah and implored them to stop sinning and repent. However, they refused, so Jeanne took pity on them and killed them as well, ending the game.

After Tao Ren was killed, Yoh asked her to revive him, which she only agreed to if he, Yoh, gave up Shaman Fight. She revived Ren by Shamash kissing him (much to his anger) and compared him to Sleeping Beauty.

While driving around the island with Tamao Tamamura, Marco and Lyserg Diethel, she is suddenly attacked by a man they first believe to be Anatel. However, he reveals that Anatel was her twin brother and that his name is Anahol. Anahol wants revenge on her for her brother's death and begins to attack the car the four of them are in with her guardian ghost Sphinx, but fails as Lyserg uses Zelel to get them to safety.

Lyserg begs Jeanne to call Shamash to help them fight, but she is too shocked by something to react and the car is destroyed. Later, it is revealed that before she died, she used Shamash to heal Marco, who had previously been pierced through the chest.

Invade the plants

After arriving on the mainland, Mu Team "XI" along with Team "Funbari Onsen" and Team "The Ren" all lost, making Hao the winner by default. As they intend to follow the Patch Tribe, they are stopped by Luchist and a great battle ensues between him and Marco which ends when Luchist pierces them both with his ball to the great shock of Jeanne.

Asakura Hao

After Lyserg is stabbed by Bron in the second plant, Jeanne realizes that as the only one able to move, she should step in and break the lock on her Iron Maiden. She quickly forms a guillotine with her Over Soul and cuts off Bron's arm and restricts his movements with vice-like locks that would crush his skull and knees. But Bron simply extends his Over Soul to cover his entire body and jumps on Jeanne although he is stopped by Lyserg who proclaims that she should not waste her Furyoku on Bron. After resurrecting Horohoro and Ren who were both killed by Bron, she uses up her remaining Furyoku and is forced to stay at the plant where she sits and prays for the warriors.

Once the plants are extinguished, she realizes that Hao has awakened and feels not only the death of all those he killed, but also Hao's own suffocating feelings of loneliness just before his soul was absorbed by the Great Spirit. Inside the Great Spirit, Hans Reiheit pulls his Iron Maiden from his Archangel Azazel revealing Jeanne inside and declaring her intention to give him love, she creates a huge Over Soul of Shamash to hug him, but is stopped by Luchist who believes she might hurt by approaching the black hole Hao had created.

Funbari no Uta

In the seven years following the tournament, she transformed the X-Laws into a charity group called X-Charity . On a trip to Europe, she met Tao Ren, eventually marrying him and together they had a son, Tao Men . After giving birth, she went on maternity leave, leaving Ren in charge of X-Charity.

Crimson red

After Ren and his company, the Leidi Group, take power, a group called the Red Crimson emerges, seeking revenge on the Tao family for exiling them 100 years ago. Jeanne is caught in the crossfire of the conflict. Red Crimson asked Black Maiden of the YVS team to assassinate her, but when Jeanne begged him not to kill anyone, Black Maiden hesitated. When Jeanne decided that Shamash would give himself the death penalty, Kamogawa Yohsuke stopped time with his YVS cards and fired the weapon that Black Maiden was holding himself, killing Jeanne when time resumed. Yohsuke then implanted a false memory of Jeanne's murder into Black Maiden. Black Maiden then took Jeanne's spirit and made her his guardian ghost for the Corn Flower.

After Jeanne's death, the Tao family built a grave for her, as it was against Jeanne and Ren's wishes that she be revived. After some members of X-Laws discovered Jeanne's death, John Denbat, Meene Montgomery and Hans Reiheit volunteered to stand guard over her grave, without even being asked.

Difference Anime/Manga

Gate of Babylon

The events concerning the Babylon Gate occur only in the 2001 animated series.

The Babylon Gate is a portal to another dimension that can only be opened by Shamash. The ultimate goal of the X-Laws is to open the Babylon Gate to seal Asakura Hao. In the middle of the anime series, the Babylon Gate was only mentioned to Yoh and his group, who were intrigued by its significance. When Jeanne finally gathered enough Furyoku to open the door, everyone present, including the X-Laws, Yoh's friends, and Hao's followers were pulled into the door. However, Hao escaped from the powerful prison, while the Fire Spirit caught Shamash with them and devoured Shamash, acquiring his powers. The prison then collapsed, freeing all its occupants and rendering it powerless.
