Days ago she’d been nothing more to us than the obscure ymbryne of a little-known loop, but since then she’d achieved mythic stature: she was, as far as we knew, the last free and whole-bodied ymbryne, a living symbol of hope, something we’d all been starving for. And here she was, right in front of us, so human and frail.

Jacob's narration, Hollow City

Balenciaga Wren, also known as Miss Wren, is a female peculiar with the peculiarity of being a ymbryne. She was the last known ymbryne to escape capture in the series.


Early Life

Miss Wren created two loops, her Menagerie and another unknown loop.

Hollow City

Miss Wren is mentioned frequently in the beginning of the story, but only appears near the end.

Because Miss Wren was the only ymbryne to escape Wight capture, the peculiars who escaped Miss Peregrine's island went to search for her in the hope that she could help 'Miss Peregrine' out of her bird form.

At the menagerie, Addison shows the peculiars a picture of Ms. Wren.

When the group reached the loop at the London Underground, they looked out for peculiars and found Sergei Andropov. They asked him if he knew Miss Wren, but he dismissed them. After walking out of the sideshow, a boy told them to go to Wakeling and Rookery. Curiously, they follow the boy's instructions and found the building where the Council of Ymbrynes convenes and Peculiar Archives residing at the intersection, completely covered in ice. They kept on finding a way to enter the building, until Miss Wren stepped out of the building. They followed her desperately and had a talk with the ymbryne. After learning their cause, she immediately called Althea to prepare her equipment.

Miss Wren worked on Miss Peregrine for hours and was shocked when she learned that Caul was the one she had been helping. She confronted Caul, but he killed Althea which caused the building to unfreeze, thus, letting the wights and hollowgasts come in. Miss Wren, thinking of the peculiars' lives, told them to go along peacefully. They were captured and went to the present time at the train station. Before the train roared away, Jacob saw Miss Wren being shoved into the train car. 

Library of Souls

She is rescued by Jacob and Emma when they entered the Wights' Fortress. She later plays a part in the collapse of Abaton.

Physical Appearance

The snapshot that is found by Emma shows Miss Wren wearing a black sequined shawl and her hair in an upsweep. By the time the group of peculiars finally meets her, her hair is completely silver, with no trace of a black highlight.


She is an ymbryne, which gives her the power to manipulate time and turn into a bird, specifically a wren.
