"You Escalators always look down on others!"
―Andou to Oshida

Rena Andou (安藤レナ) is a supporting character in Girls und Panzer das Finale.

Profile

Andou is a student of BC Freedom High School, she is the vice-commander from Examination faction and commanded an SOMUA S35 with the emblem "Green Spade".

Appearance

Andou is an average-sized tanned-skin girl with shoulder length spiked-messy black hairs and brown eyes. She is seen wearing BC Freedom's sensha-do uniform inside matches and the schoolgirl one outside.

Personality

While hot-blooded she seems to have an inferiority complex and hold a grudge against Escalator faction students. She is often criticising her commander often attracting Oshida's wrath, however she is capable to put her animosity aside to achieve victory. Being part of the "lower-class" of BC Freedom, she seems quite neglectent on her appearance always having messy hair and wearing her uniform in a casual manner with her vest as a cardigan.

Background

Warning: The following information is from outside Girls und Panzer's main core. It has some level of canonicity within the continuity, but reader discretion is advised.

Non-GuP core informations ends here.

She is seen participating to several trainings undergo by Marie alongside Oshida, such as fighting each other on who's is the best qualified to protect Marie's tank which ended as a tie or she is forced to cooperate with her frenemy against Marie where they ended both destroyed by their commander.

During Yukari's infiltration, she is seen among many students fighting each other (especially with Andou). While the fight is real it is also accentuated in order to fool spies making believe the two BC Freedom factions are unable to cooperate. She keeps fighting and arguing with Andou from the tournament bracket lottery until the greetings before the match.

During the Winter Continuous Track Cup first round match against Ooarai Girls Academy, she commanded an SOMUA with its distinctive "Green Spade" also leading a platoon of another three SOMUAs. First making think to their opponent that they let the flag tank apparently defenseless, she in reality reunites with Oshida's ARLs platoon and assault Ooarai's tank on the bridge, after a fierce firefight and Ooarai escaping the bridge, she and her platoon is forced to retreat due to Duck Team storming their back. She is last seen in formation singing the Chant de l'Oignon with her teammates.
