Kaede ( カエデ ) is a character in Lapis Re:Lights. She is a member of the unit, Kono Hana wa Otome. An exchange student from Yamato, and the yongest of three sisters, she has a calm and collected personality for her age, but because her older sisters' personalities are too intense, she longs for an older brother or sister who is more reliable. She has a habbit of hugging things she likes, so she often hugs her roommate Salsa. She likes foxes, but since there are none living near the academy, she often pets the werewolf Salsa instead. Despite Salsa saying "But I'm an Ookami~!", she doesn't seem to mind being petted so the two make a rather good combination. She is part of the fortune telling research club, and her best method is using fox fortune telling. Being the youngest member of "Kono Hana wa Otome", she is the least skilled at singing and danicng, but her desire to catch up with her older sisters inspires her to practice everyday making her an incredibly hard worker.
