Peony is a character and the deuteragonist of the first part and a part of the antagonist in the second part of A Faceless Realm.
Peony was born one half of The Fallen Fairy Angel. Scared that the two were to be too powerful, their parents were required to separate them, into two human beings, referring to them as "sisters", and abandon them in fear of being accused for creating strong human beings.
Peony and her sister Lavender were like sisters, always looking out for each other and playing together. Prior to the events of A Faceless Realm, the sisters wanted to cast a spell to make a third friend, because they felt lonely being only the two of them, and other people disliked and made fun of them due to their weirdly coloured hair and their parents abandoning them (which they have no memories of). The spell required enough faces from human beings to work. And so, Peony and Lavender practiced day and night on how to cast other people's faces and generate eyes and mouths. However, they found that placing eyes and mouths on foods causes them to go berserk. They decide this was a good idea to unleash to the world due to them being bullied their whole lives.
At the start of A Faceless Realm, Lavender orders Peony to team up with the protagonist and try to lead them to the Fey Forest, so that the two can test their true strength. She mentions holding a "staged" battle where Peony must deliberately lose to make it not obvious that they are a team, and deliberately lose her class powers twice so it does not look suspicious.
Peony, with the protagonist, appears as a friendly person who would help him. However, this is just for her own gains to stop someone from preventing her and her sister's master plan. In reality, she is cold-hearted, merciless and would do anything to kill the protagonist, attempting several times behind the scenes in the first part of A Faceless Realm, but failing due to a sound similar to someone waking up interrupting her.
When Lavender is defeated, she is saddened, increasing suspicion of the party against her. However, when Lavender is revived, Peony reveals to the party that she has been working with Lavender the entire time, and agrees to want them dead. Peony and Lavender then fuse into The Fallen Fairy Angel, and become the main antagonists for the second part of the story.
