To drain energy for the Makaiju
Wakana Yamazaki (original anime)
Reci was the fifth Cardian sent by Ail and An to gather energy for the Makaiju. She was a tree-like creature who can attack with blasts of energy as well as draining energy from living beings. In her true form, she had branches for arms with retractable claws, and roots for legs. She was able to send Sailor Moon into another dimension. She appeared in episode 51.
At a picnic, Reci drained the energy out of Gurio Umino, Naru Osaka, and Haruna Sakurada, leaving them unconscious. She also drained more energy from Ami, Rei, Makoto, and Minako and trapped them inside individual energy chambers. Sailor Moon tried to attack with her tiara but Reci easily swatted it away and proceeded to lunge at Sailor Moon and destroyed her locket, reversing her transformation. She then sucked Usagi and Luna into a portal where they were nearly killed but they saw Queen Serenity, who used the Silver Crystal to restore Sailor Moon's locket and gave her a more powerful transformation: Moon Crystal Power, Make Up.
When Sailor Moon returned to fight Reci, the rest of the Sailor Senshi were nearly dead and being consumed by the tree that Reci was inside earlier and they did not realize Sailor Moon was back. With an assist from Moonlight Knight, Reci became the first of many victims of Sailor Moon's "Moon Princess Halation". Despite her death, Reci was one of the most powerful Cardians and still managed to drain a large amount of energy for Ail and An.
- Reci is the only Cardian to have a human form, though she never uses it as a means to disguise herself. She first seems to be a beautiful woman but in her true form she has a demonic face and plant-like characteristics.
- Reci can only repeat her name in the original anime but in the English dub she is capable of speaking.
- She was the first Cardian, as well as the first enemy overall, to be destroyed with Moon Princess Halation.
- Her human appearance is similar to those of a woman from Japan's Heian Period.
