Alice is a female MP who has a courteous and professional demeanor and is good at her job. Usually she deals with no foe more dangerous then drunks. Sometimes she is expected to do things like processing captured partisans in a war zone. She is more a cop than a soldier, but she still is quite effective and respected.
Alice was once a dancer before receiving her weapon.
Alice only uses long-distance weapons or pole-arms because she knows her height and weight put her at a disadvantage against taller, stronger opponents. Being graceful also ensures that she's less likely to leave herself open or stumble/fall.
Played For Drama: Alice developed her elegant technique to counter the barbaric warrior who slaughtered her family. When she finds him, she intends to skillfully disarm him before enjoying an extended period of revenge.
The Lady of War's not for burning. I mean you could try, but you'll just end up on the business end of a naginata.
