Renee is an employee of the Secret Bakery, a bakery and coffee shop located in Northampton, Massachusetts.
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.
