Why, hello, little Lie. Are we trying to catch a fish?
—An, to her son

An Ren was the mother of Lie Ren and wife of Li Ren. She first appeared in the episode "Kuroyuri" of RWBY Volume 4. She lived in Kuroyuri Village with her family until the Nuckelavee and a horde of Grimm attacked their village. She was killed when the roof of their house collapsed on her.


An had dusky rose hair held in a bun by a gray band and pink eyes. She wore a long green dress with dark green around the shoulders. It has long flared sleeves that have cut-outs on the shoulders with a large band of plum purple on the cuffs. She wears a pair of black ballet flats and a pink sash around her waist.

It can be surmised that Lie got his pink eyes and hairstreak from her. Her outfit is of a similar style to those of her son and husband.


  • An (安) is Chinese for "peace/quiet", associated with the color white. It also means "heaven, sky" in Sumerian.
