What is Wrong with Princess Renner in Overlord?
Princess Renner Theiere Chardelon Ryle Vaiself, or simply Princess Renner, is the Re-Estize Kingdom's most beloved princess. While everyone around her is aware of her good intentions and warm heart, Princess Renner is hiding a hideous secret that will cost her reputation if discovered.
She established herself as the Golden Princess of the Re-Estize Kingdom by abolishing slavery and instituting an orphanage for homeless children.
Aside from that, her sweet personality shines through among her subjects, including her personal bodyguard, Climb.
Unlike other children, Princess Renner is born with the overdeveloped skills necessary for rulership. Children her age, on the other hand, do not have the same gift as she does, which explains her inability to relate to them.
As a result, Princess Renner's personality and mental development were greatly influenced by this circumstance.
Not until she met Climb did she begin to develop a twisted outlook on life. To impress and get to know him, Princess Renner took in and cared for the young orphan boy.
She began to disguise her twisted and delusory mind by posing as the warm, kind, and sweet princess whom everyone in the Re-Estize Kingdom expects her to be.
Is Princess Renner Evil in Overlord?
Yes, Princess Renner is Evil in Overlord in the eyes of the people of the Re-Estize Kingdom. However, for Nazarick, Princess Renner is a valuable asset who made the invasion much easier.
Princess Renner initially met with Demiurge in secret to request a place in Nazarick with her pet bodyguard, Climb.
In Overlord 4, she is seen conversing with Albedo following the latter's visit to the kingdom for diplomatic relations. Surprisingly, the two of them look very acquainted when they talk about their feelings for Climb and Ainz.
In the end, Princess Renner chose to sell her own kingdom to Ainz Ooal Gown for selfish reasons. Not to mention that she persuaded Climb to abandon the kingdom and join her in Nazarick for good.
Is Princess Renner a Yandere in Overlord?

For her, Climb is the only person she cares about. However, she also considers him her pet.
During Jaldabaoth's demonic disturbance, she intends to send Climb to the frontlines, where the danger is much greater. She believes that if Climb gets injured, she would be the only girl in the world that would be able to care for him.
Not to mention her plans to sell the Re-Estize Kingdom to Nazarick in exchange for a very special place where she will live with Climb for good. Yikes!
