Renee apparently met Angus at a party, where the two of them started to date. Angus routinely came in to the Secret Bakery to flirt with her—somewhat akin to what he did with Faye. They have since split up, to the joy of Angus's roommates.
Renee was apparently not a fan of Coffee of Doom due to "something about a snail in a latte". Faye suspects that it must have been Dora who did it, since she couldn't recall doing anything like that.
She is a good friend of Brun, who stayed with her after the destruction of her apartment.
