Totooria Helmold (Totori)

Voiced by: Kaori Nazuka (JP), Cassandra Lee (EN)

Protagonist of the game. She is Rorona's first and only student in alchemy. She's weak and not very smart but alchemy has given her more confidence in herself. Decides to become an adventurer in order to find her mother.


Voiced by: Yuko Sanpei (JP)

Totori's childhood friend. He wishes to become the world's greatest adventurer and drags Totori along with him. Tends to be hyper and very loud.

Melvia (Mel)

Voiced by: Ryōko Shintani (JP)

Ceci's childhood friend and adventurer mentor to Totori. Despite her looks, she is abnormally strong and powerful

  • Action Girl: She's an adventurer.
  • An Axe to Grind: Uses an axe roughly her size.
    • Barefisted Monk: Though her special attack has her throwing her axe away to whale on her enemies barehanded.
  • Boobs of Steel: In brute physical strength only, she is possibly the strongest person in the country. She's also the bustiest.
  • Childhood Friends: With Ceci and Peter
  • Cool Big Sis: To Totori and Gino, they even call her Mel-oneechan in the Japanese dub.
  • Crutch Character: In the beginning of the game she has the most HP and takes very little damage from the enemies surrounding Alayan. Without her, Totori and Gino wouldn't be able to handle a good deal of exploration first.
  • Miss Fanservice: Along with Pamela, she's the only one gleefully showing herself off during the beauty contest.
  • Muscles Are Meaningless: She doesn't look all that muscular, but she can life a dinosaur with ease.
  • Skinship Grope: Does this to virtually every female she meets.
  • Stripperific: It's telling that during one of her specials her very tiny skirt reveals she's wearing black panties.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Tomboy to Ceci's girly girl.

Mimi Houllier von Schwarzlang

An aristocrat who wishes to become a famous adventurer to bring pride to her family name. She's prideful, snooty, and tends to be quite selfish, but she has a good heart.

  • Action Girl
  • Foil: To Cordelia. Both of them are tsundere aristocrats, yet while Mimi views the title as something important that warrants immediate respect, Cordelia thinks nothing much of it. Mimi knows in her heart that the title actually means nothing— after all it can be bought. But when she was bullied as a child, her mother told her that if it got her down, to just remind herself that she's an aristocrat. She clung to the title fiercely because if she accepted the reality of its worthlessness, then what her mother said would be meaningless.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold
  • Lady of War: She obviously wants to be one and has the aesthetic down in combat. She's still a bit too immature to really pull it off, though.
  • She Is All Grown Up: She's 20 in Atelier Meruru.
  • Tsundere: While she is a natural tsundere, it tends to be even worse when it comes to Totori.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Gino in the third game.


A scientist living in Arland.

Cecilia Helmold (Ceci)

Voiced by: Asami Imai (JP), Cristina Valenzuela (EN)

Totori's elder sister. Since their mother disappeared, she's taken charge of the household. She was initially opposed to Totori becoming an adventurer, but she eventually relented, though she still doesn't approve much.

  • Beware the Nice Ones
  • Combination Attack: If Totori uses an attack item, Ceci can join in to double its effectiveness.
  • Cool Big Sis: She tries and succeeds most of the time.
  • Childhood Friends: With Melvia and Peter.
  • Crutch Character: Averted. Since she can't actually be recruited until near the end of the game, she starts of at Level 50 when first unlocked. Once she is, she can be recruited at any time on any other file, where she starts back at Level 1.
  • Cuteness Proximity: She becomes this when she sees Chim and Piana.
  • Dude Magnet: One of the reasons Gerhard hires her is because guys come to the store just to be around her.
  • Hair Decorations
  • Improbable Weapon User: In her DLC, she uses a feather duster as her Weapon of Choice.
  • Never Gets Drunk: She single-handedly drank almost all the beer Gerhard had in his tavern, and other than having a flushed face, still acts the same, and still wants more. Gerhard is not amused as its his treat.
  • Promotion to Parent: Even though their father is still alive, Ceci is pretty much like a mother to Totori. It doesn't help that their father is mostly useless.
  • Promoted to Playable: As Downloadable Content in the original game and programmed into the game in Plus, but can't actually be recruited until Melvia's ending flag is triggered on any file.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Girly Girl to Melvia's Tomboy.
  • Yamato Nadeshiko: She cooks, cleans, and has a normally sweet demeanor.

Guid Helmold

Voiced by: Kenji Hamada (JP), Kyle Hebert (EN)

Totori and Ceci's father. He tends to be very quiet and calm, to the point people tend to not notice him when he's in a room. Spends most of his time fishing.

  • Good Parents
  • He's Back: After Totori declares that his ship will never sink, which sparks his memories of Gisela's firm declaration that his ship will never sink, his gaze becomes sharper and he becomes much more expressive. When he gets to actually pilot the ship in Mel's ending, he's like a little kid.
  • Older Than He Looks: Looks quite young for a father of two teenage girls.

Gisela Helmold

A famous adventurer and mother of Ceci and Totori. She disappeared years ago during an adventure and everyone has assumed the worst about her except for Totori, who goes looking for her.

  • Action Mom: She fought back a devil that an entire nation worked to get sealed twice.
  • Badass: She never lost a fight, and even in her last two fights ended in draws, where she gave just as much as she took.
  • Broke Your Arm Punching Out Cthulhu: She manages to fight both the Flaushtraut and the devil to "a draw"; the former leaving her boatless and stranded, the second on her deathbed. And, in the first case, she was only defeated because her ship sank. Had that not happened, she very likely would have won.
  • Dead All Along: Finishing the game properly requires you to find her grave... however
  • Determinator: Singlehandedly taking on two of the game's major bosses, still on her feet after starving and drifting for two weeks, and recovering from near-death in 8 years when she was told it would take 50.
  • Doting Parent
  • Hero with Bad Publicity: Everyone has pointed out she's rather brash, insults others, and causes problems everywhere she goes, but no one has any doubt that she was the best adventurer of the time.
  • Hoist By Her Own Petard: The only reason the Flaushtraut sunk her ship was because it attacked the part she had secretly helped build, giving it a massive weak point.

Filly Dee

A receptionist at the adventurers guild. She gives out quests to Totori when Totori is in Arland. Incredibly shy, she was forced to become a receptionist when her older sister Esty (from Atelier Rorona) suddenly quit.

Peter Rietz

Voiced by: Hidehiro Kikuchi (JP), Johnny Yong Bosch (EN)

The carriage driver in Alanya.


The owner of the local tavern and an old friend of Guid's.
