The Seven-Colored Doll User


Alice is a magician. When she made her appearance in "Perfect Cherry Blossom" stage 3, she ran into the protagonists who were investigating the flow of spring. Anyway, she was defeated. She is a former human who only recently became a youkai through her studies, so she still retains habits from her time as a human— like eating and sleeping. Like Marisa, she lives somewhere in the Forest of Magic, where she diligently keeps up her research.


Her specialty is using magic to manipulate dolls, and can control a large number of them at the same time. As seen in the heading of this section, she was given the title of "Seven-Colored Doll User" in "Perfect Cherry Blossom", and when speaking with Reimu or Marisa ends up making the claim that her power over seven colors is better than their two colors, Red-White or Black-White. She certainly appears to use different dolls for each of spellcards anyway.


Incidentally, all her dolls are handmade, and her house is filled with them. All of her housework is done by the dolls, but since he has to move them herself this isn't any less work for her.


The Bond Between the Two


In "Perfect Cherry Blossom", Alice speaks as if she already knows Reimu and Marisa, but the intent behind this conversation is clarified by ZUN in his comment here. She makes a large number of appearances for a youkai, so perhaps we'll discuss her more later when we talk about the contents of those works.

The demo went up to stage 3, so I didn't want to give anything away about the later stages or final boss in those stages. So I intentionally brought back a character from the past just to make player think it might have something to do with that (lol). The fact that the demos go up to stage 3 has had a huge influence of the games and the characters, and has changed the setting as well as how I present it.
