Rani making sounds/music with water, seen "In the Realm of the Never Fairies"

Rani is a water-talent fairy that can do "amazing, magical things with water:" bounce it like a ball, mold it into the shape of a fish, scoop it up in her fingers without losing a drop, or even making music/sound with water. She can also help her fellow fairies with water-related things, such as getting water to boil faster. Being a water fairy, Rani cries easily for the extra amount of water in her, being considered by her friends as the most passionate of them all. This also influenced her passion for water, and her desire to get involved with it, loving rainy days, splashing in puddles, and swimming, being even her favorite dreams.[1] [2]

After Fairy Dust and the Quest for the Egg, because Rani had to cut her wings she became the only fairy in Pixie Hollow who can swim without drowning herself. Rani also knows how to whistle mermaid songs.


Rani's room is made of a "unusually large seashell that washed up on the beach of Never Land long ago." The scalloped rim works as a perch for Brother Dove, and the door is large enough for him to poke his head to look for her or her room.[3]

Mentioned furniture: shell wardrobe, driftwood bed, a nightstand, coconut bathtub, seaweed curtains, and River stones on the floor. Mentioned objects and decorations: sparkling jug full of water (also called "crystal water pitcher") and silver drinking cup (gift from Tinker Bell) beside her bed, "marble/magical pearl" that lights up the room with golden glow, basket or pockets to keep her extra leafkerchiefs, thimble fishbowl, feather from Brother Dove, keepsake shell that she received when she arrived in Pixie Hollow, oar for leaf race, starfish necklace (her favorite jewelry), and a sea book "all about the sea."[3][4]

Rani and the waterfish

Rani and her water fish

In Fairy Dust and the Quest for the Egg, Rani is chosen as the head of the team, along with Prilla and Vidia, to save Mother Dove's broken egg. In other for the dragon Kyto to fix the egg, he demanded three items: Captain Hook's double cigar holder, a golden feather from the golden hawk, and a mermaid's comb. Yet, to get the last item, Rani asked Prilla to cut off her wings so she could swim to were the mermaids live. Rani felt no pain as fairies wings are not sensible, being compared to hair, and as soon as Prilla finished, Rani's wings crystallized. Reaching the dragon's Kyto lair, they realized they lost the golden feather, so Rani gave her crystallized wings instead. From there on, Brother Dove became her assistant, and whenever she needs him, Rani whistles and Brother Dove flies to her side and carries her, and even though she misses being able to fly on her own, Rani is not entirely unhappy about losing her wings, since she had always longed to swim.


Rani and Soop

In Fairy Haven and the Quest for the Wand, the Never Mermaids started making the water level higher til they got what they wanted in exchange for the mermaid comb (given to Kyto previously), so Rani, Tinker Bell and Queen Clarion went on the quest to get a Fairy Haven's wand. Later, in possession of the wand, Rani first wish was to make the mermaid Soop likes her, then to have wings that could work underwater. Rani grows scaly, fish-like wings, and gives the wand to Soop, that began singing, accidentally turning Rani to turn into a bat. Rani then lost her control of her body, so Beck, Prilla, and the Golden Hawk helped her regain consciousness. In the end, when all the wishes are reversed, Rani loses her friendship with Soop, and her wings, turning back into her fairy form. Yet, her bat-self, called Rani-bat, now shares her mind, as a small subtle consciousness that follows the bat's logical, politeness-obsessed mind, along her water fairy's emotional, outburst and passionate personality.

In Fairies and the Quest for Never Land, Rani helped finding a way to dose Kyto with water birds. Along other water-talent fairies Rani then went on the quest keeping Kyto at bay. Rani cried about the other fairies that had died because of Kyto.
