Glycine Bleumer (グリシーヌ・ブルーメール Gurishīnu Burūmēru) is a member of the Paris Combat Revue's Fleur Division.
Born as a member of a noble family, Glycine grew up as a respective and responsible aristocrat. She's an expert on close combat with a battle axe as her weapon of choice. Glycine became a member of the Paris Assault Force after being discovered by Erica that she possessed strong spiritual powers. She works at Chattes Noires as a dancer in secret, without any outsiders revealing her as a noble.
As the European counterpart of Sumire (Being also a rich girl from a important family) she sometimes sounds harsh and is very conceited. But unlike, and VERY unlike, Sumire, she's not nearly closer to being arrogant. In compensation, she's extremely aggressive at words, and even in actions. She has a very short temperament and always acts like a soldier, and any sign of actions that means a insult to her pride she immediatly prepares her axe to threat fighting the person(And she won't hold back, be sure of that). This sentiment of hers is because she, as a aristrocacy member, feels responsible to help other people to prosperate, never looking down to other people and always worried with her friends. She has a funny friendship relationship with Erica, one of the only few people that she never overreacts with duel threats, but always feeling embarassed with her nun friend's antics and nonsense. Also, unlike Sumire and Sakura friendship(With Sumire being a good friend of Sakura, but in major times being friendly rude and always taunting Sakura's "lack of talent"), Glycine seems to be very protective of Erica, being shameless to admit that Erica is her friend, caring deeply for her and being careful with words towards her(Not only because Erica may not understand a thing, but also because she does not want to hurt her friend feelings).
She's a old friend of Hanabi Kitaoji, even before the events of the third game, and is also very protective of her since the traumatic death of her fiancee. Glycine won't accept any type of insult towards her and won't hold back to defeat and humilliate anyone who harms Hanabi.
This being different with Lobelia Carlini, who them being a very "Water and Oil" relationship. In serious moments tho, they care for each other. This same rivality can be applied with Sumire. They overreacts to each other provocations, but they puts their differences aside when the subject is about saving the other people.
