Overview

Alice is a character who has not yet appeared in the story but has been mentioned many times. A famous adventurer, she is the mother of Klee and the author of the Teyvat Travel Guide. She is also an elder within an organization known as the Hexenzirkel, as well as an alchemist.

Personality

Alice is a rather free-spirited person who shows little restraint, shown in the way she wrote the Teyvat Travel Guide. Both Jean and Albedo also comment that Klee takes after her mother in many ways, possibly implying she is also very destructive and prone to not think of the consequences. Despite her impulsiveness, Alice is also quite powerful and intelligent, taking inspiration from her adventures to draft various ideas and experiments, along with being skilled in a wide variety of activities.

She is shown to care a lot about Klee, telling her to remember how much she is loved during the final act of Midsummer Island Adventure. Despite having left Klee with the Knights of Favonius, she still sneaks back to check in on her regularly.[3]

History

In the past, Alice was friends and rivals with Mona's Master. Fifty years ago, Alice made a pact with her, resulting in Alice taking possession of her diary.[4]

Alice met her husband during her travels and married him at some point in the past. Later, Alice gave birth to Klee.

Alice began writing the Teyvat Travel Guide at an unknown point in the past, documenting notable areas and features in her travels. It seems to have began circulating some time ago, as Jifang of the Wanwen Bookhouse claims the Liyue edition has been out-of-print for some time due to its unpopularity. The series is rather contentious due to its highly personal and subjective writing style, reading more like Alice's personal diary rather than an actual travel guide.[5]

While touring Liyue, Alice became acquainted with Zhongli, whom she described as "the sternest person" she knows.[6] It may have been during this tour that she encountered Echo and gave him the potion that cured his stutter — and compelled him to perfectly imitate those around him.[6][7]

At some point, Alice imparted Barbara with the "Idol Magazine" and inspired the girl to become an "idol," with the intent of making one idol in every nation of Teyvat and forming the "Teyvat Idols!" group. The plan did not quite come to fruition.[8] Alice also hand-crafted Dodoco, the fluffy stuffed doll tied to the clover on Klee's backpack. Klee named the doll, and claims it means "Klee's best friend."[9]

Alice was friends with Rhinedottir, a renowned alchemist and practitioner of the Art of Khemia. When Rhinedottir disappeared, she tasked her student, Albedo, with uncovering the truth of Teyvat for his final assignment. Knowing he would need more assistance, Rhinedottir sent him to Alice, who then proceeded to bring him to the Knights of Favonius so he would have enough space to perform his research.[10] Three years before the start of the game, she left with her husband to "travel somewhere dangerous and far away," leaving Klee in Albedo's care.[9]

Sometime during the summer while she was adventuring, she found the Golden Apple Archipelago and thought of Klee. As a gift to her and to the people who were taking care of her, she decided to dress-up the islands, leaving behind various gadgets and games to turn it into a "summer park" for everyone to enjoy. In order to get everyone to come, she concocted a plan of leaving behind threatening letters, encouraging them to go to the island to deal with a fictional enemy, called 'Dodo-King.' However, once the last puzzle was dealt with, the truth was revealed through one of Alice's inventions, which she calls the "Alice Phonograph." She explained herself and the island and that she was already exploring another area in Teyvat.[3]

Gliding Violation

A tourist named Alice created a wind current at Windrise by blasting an Anemo Slime and used it to quickly climb to great heights with a wind glider. The legendary adventurer performed a series of aerobatic stunts in the skies above Mondstadt. Her performance earned a big round of applause from the crowd. However, Jean, the Acting Grand Master of the Knights of Favonius, summoned her and gave her a 10-day detention.

Abilities

Alice is well-versed in a multitude of fields, including alchemy, astrology, magic, medicine, science and engineering. She also seems to be a good teacher, passing her knowledge of explosives on to the young Klee.

Alchemy

  • Bomb-Crafting: She blew up several archways in Stormterror's Lair to make it easier to climb and make it look more ancient, and is currently experimenting on how to make a perfect Explosion Catalyst.[11]
  • Explosive Dolls: After being inspired by Amber's Baron Bunny, Alice developed Dodoco and taught Klee how to make explosive plushies of her own.[11]

Magic

  • Immense Magical Power: Albedo, who is himself a talented alchemist and Vision user, goes so far as to call Alice a "near-omnipotent sorceress."[3] Diluc, who has made use of Delusion without noticeably negative effects, claims that, besides Venti (the mortal vessel of Barbatos), Alice is the only resident of Mondstadt who could have prepared the events on the Golden Apple Archipelago.
  • Energy Shielding: Alice is capable of creating large Hydro-based energy shields, such as the one encompassing most of the island northwest of Minacious Isle prior to the events of The Final Riddle: A Secret Uncovered.
  • Magic Detection: Alice could detect Osial's power at the bottom of Guyun Stone Forest, where it was entombed after being defeated by the Geo Archon.[6]

Medicines

  • Potion Crafting: Alice's potions are potent, capable of curing people of things like speech impediments. However, they also tend to have side effects.[6]

Science

  • Hilichurl-based Perpetual Motion Machine (theoretical): After witnessing the massive factories in Snezhnaya that were powered by perpetual motion machines, Alice suggested using hilichurls in a similar fashion, by forcing them to run in huge ball-shaped cells to generate energy for Mondstadt's windmills. This idea was rejected.[11]
  • Launching Device (failed): Alice made a Launching Device to see if someone can fly to Celestia, using hilichurls as test subjects. They could only travel from the oak tree at Windrise to Springvale.[11]
  • Alice noticed that the mountainous area of Liyue, Jueyun Karst, was once sunk at the bottom of the ocean, and she assumed that one day it would be submerged again, due to having a large water reservoir underneath it.[6]
  • Prototype Self-Propelled Seashell Boat (failed): Seeking to convert the seashell house at Yaoguang Shoal into a boat, Alice made at least three prototypes for a self-propelled boat. However, she failed to control it and ultimately gave up.[6]
  • Waverider: Possibly a variant of her earlier designs for a self-propelled boat, the Waverider is a small vessel capable of traversing the Golden Apple Archipelago without any reliance on wind or physical exertion.
  • Attempts to Control Ruin Guards (failed): At Brightcrown Canyon, Alice attempted to control a Ruin Guard, which involved strapping a hilichurl to it. She failed dramatically: the Ruin Guard's body fell apart, while she decided to spare readers from the "gory details" about the hilichurl's fate. She also destroyed half of the ruins in Brightcrown Canyon in the process.[11]

Tailoring

  • Recolored the Wings of Feasting: Alice obtained the Wings of Feasting from another world and recolored it to suit her family's color scheme. It was originally blue and white, but she recolored it red.

Engineering

Trivia

  • Alice and her daughter, Klee, are of a race blessed with longevity[12] and Klee has pointed, elf-like ears. However, the name of their race and whether or not Teyvat has a name for their race is currently unknown.
    • During The Final Riddle: A Secret Uncovered, the Chinese equivalent for Kaeya's comment about how Alice and Klee are "kindred spirits, both wild and free" is "母女俩都是自由自在的精灵" ("The mother and daughter both are free and unfettered jīng​líng"). 精灵 Jīng​líng primarily refers to supernatural entities in a broad sense, such as elves, spirits, and fairies;[13] there is a secondary definition that means "keen and clever mind,"[14] but this interpretation does not fit the context.
      • In the field of European legends and fantasy, 精灵 jīng​líng mainly refers to elves,[15][16] líng to spirits,[17] and xiǎoxiānzi (小仙子) to fairies.[18] That said, jīng​líng has previously been used to describe Barbatos before he became Archon, and Paimon. For Barbatos, it was translated as both "elf"[19] and "spirit."[20] For Paimon, it was translated as "elf."[21] In addition, it is used as a part of the Chinese name for the Lochfolk/Oceanid (纯水精灵 chúnshuǐ-jīng​líng, "Pure Water Elemental"). Given that none of them bear much resemblance to Klee nor to the typical depiction of an elf, translating the term jīng​líng becomes complicated.
    • The Japanese version unambiguously uses the term エルフ Erufu, "(European) elves" in its equivalent sentence; meanwhile, the Korean version phrases the above expression as "정말 자유로운 영혼을 가진", which roughly means "having truly free souls."
  • Alice is at least over fifty years old.[22]
  • Her possession of the Wings of Feasting and the Idol Magazine she gave to Barbara could suggest that Alice is capable of obtaining items from worlds beyond Teyvat, or at the very least is capable of locating such objects.
  • Albedo calls Alice "Aunt,"[3] although not in the familial sense of the word. In Chinese, he addresses her as 阿姨 āyí, a term which literally means "aunt" but is also used as an honorific for older women who have no blood relation to the speaker.
