Lecht Refraktia [SK004 Vier] (レヒト・レフレクティア, Rehito Refurekutia; English: Recht Refraktia) and Rink Refraktia [SK005 Fünf] (リンク・レフレクティア, Rinku Refurekutia; English: Link Refraktia), sometimes referred to by fans as the Refraktia Twins, are a pair of Dark Magi and members of the Schwarzkreuz appearing in Rosenkreuzstilette ~Freudenstachel~.
Lecht and Rink are nun siblings dressed in the usual nun attire, with black shoes as well as black crosses on the back of the handkerchief part of their attire. Without their habits, they both wear black berets. They both have long, black hair held in a ponytail by a white ribbon (Lecht has her ponytail on the left side of her head, Rink has her ponytail on the right), and grey eyes.
- "Uhh... Umm... Forgive me, but I have no choice!"

- "No one can stand up to us! We can beat anybody in no time flat!"
- —Rink Refraktia, Rosenkreuzstilette ~Freudenstachel~
Lecht and Rink are close sisters that are always seen together, rarely apart. Lecht, the older of the two, is very introverted and doesn't like talking to others. She is blind in her right eye and thus wears an eye-patch. She loves to read books.
Rink, the younger sister, is a lively, outgoing girl who keeps her sister foremost in her thoughts. If her sister is in any danger, Rink will stop at nothing to remove the threat. After the twins are defeated in ~Freudenstachel~, it is revealed that Rink was a fake image, Falschegestalt, created by Lecht. However, Rink and Lecht are real twins and Rink, although being a fake image, has her own consciousness and is so natural to Lecht that her existence is taken for granted. Thus when Lecht is defeated, although she technically has no more magic stamina left, the image of Rink still remained.
While Rink is dead, according to Lecht they had been "together since birth until death". The original Japanese verb tense was ambiguous so that it cannot be easily judged whether Lecht is dead.
The Refraktia sisters wield the miracle power Falschegestalt ("False Shadow"). Using it, they can create a magical shield that reflects special attacks. Falschegestalt is also the ability Lecht used to create the Rink that appears alongside her.
Lecht and Rink are often seen working alongside the rest of the Schwarzkreuz against the RKS. Freudia Neuwahl meets the twins at the end of the Library of Shadows. When she defeats them, she learns that Rink is only a mirror image generated by Lecht, and has been with her for so long that Rink's image became natural to Lecht. Freudia agrees to let them go provided that they no longer work against her.
When Pamela Arwig gets back home after defeating the members of RKS, she is informed by Lecht and Rink that the church has branded her a traitor. Pamela tries to reason with the twins, but fails. Pamela encounters the twins again at the end of the Library of Shadows. After she defeats them, Pamela is surprised of her lack of knowledge of the members of the Schwarzkreuz when she learns that Rink was not a real being. The twins reveal that they know that the church might turn against them someday but the thought of them turning against the church themselves is just unthinkable. Pamela asks the twins to help her establish a "true" Schwarzkreuz and Lecht leaves, asking Pamela to give her time to think. Lecht and Rink and the rest of the Schwarzkreuz, including Eifer, later happily reunite with their captain after she has defeated Iris and reunited Spiritia Rosenberg with Freudia and Strudel.
Rink will leap forward, followed by Lecht as Rink then lunges at the player, Lecht following her, and the two will repeat said movement, occasionally having their shadows shoot lasers as they do so. The two will also encase themselves in bright magical spherical shields as they move along all four sides of the screen, with Lecht moving faster and Rink moving slower. After they finish once Rink reaches the floor again, the two will use their shields again and move in different directions around the room before meeting together and then teleporting to one side of the screen. In Desperation Mode, the two will change the background color to monochrome as they disappear and reappear with their shadows and move around, stopping in different spots to shoot lasers at the player before moving again and repeating, before teleporting to one side of the screen again. To damage the twins, the player has to attack Lecht, who is the one with the eyepatch, as attacking Rink, who is the one lacking an eyepatch, will heal them instead.

- Lecht's and Rink's names are a play on the German words "links" and "rechts", meaning "Left" and "Right".

- If Rink is attacked (Eislanze and the other Abilities) the Refraktia Sister's health bar will heal.
