Alice Heart

Alice Heart is Queen Rougina's protegee. She has lived most of her life in the Heart Church and has recently moved to attend Phantasmagoria University in order to become an oneironaut. Her Traumen Mark is in her pupils.

  • Alice Allusion: The entire plot is based on Alice in Wonderland and Through The Looking Glass and, being named "Alice" in setting like this, it sort of comes with the territory.

  • Ambiguously Human: There are hints that Alice is a human that started turning into a Jabberwocky after falling into Wonderland that Rougina stabilized somehow.
  • Bad Dreams: Alice has them, which she finds weird, as Wonderlandians don't have dreams.
  • Big Beautiful Woman
  • Bi the Way: Alice is confirmed by Word of God to be bi.
  • Color Motif: Pink.
  • Emotion Control: She is a Heart.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold
  • I Just Want to Be Normal: In Chapter 5, Alice accidentally falls asleep and has a sudden encounter with a separate, Nightmare-like version of herself, who has popped in and out at random times throughout the story. Nightmare!Alice tells Alice that she missed her and wants to be with her, at which point Alice bursts into tears, saying she just wants to live a normal life without Nightmare!Alice ruining it for her.

  • Locked Away in a Monastery: According to the cast page, Alice has spent her entire life so far in a place called Heart Church.
  • My Beloved Smother: Rougina to Alice
  • Socially Awkward Hero: Alice haven't had much contact with others before her arrival in Phanty U, and sometimes it shows - especially when the Girl Posse latches onto her.
  • Spoiled Sweet: Alice is the queen's protege and has been raised with no friends, but all provided, yet is extremely nice to everyone and completely ignores Fantastic Racism.
  • Superpowered Evil Side: Alice seems to have something like his - whenever she's angry, she gets wide-eyed and starts spilling red dust around. It's implied that medicine she takes daily keeps it at bay. Learning more about Nightmares hints at a further connection.
  • Wingding Eyes: A variation in that her pupils are wingdings - hearts, to be specific. Justified in that this is her Traumen Mark.
