Following this morning’s debut trailer, Koei Tecmo has released new information and screenshots of Nelke the Legendary Alchemists: Ateliers of the New World introducing characters Lilie, Shallotte, Lydie, Felt, Edge, Hagel, and Pamela.
Get the details below.
Lilie (voiced by Megumi Nasu)
A self-educated alchemist, Lillie is a woman crazy about alchemy. She came from an era even before alchemists Marie and Elie. Everything easily excites her, but that excitement also causes her to make mistakes. She has a major weakness for anything sweet.
Shallotte Elminus (voiced by Sumire Uesaka)
An alchemist who aspires to do something great. A bright and cheerful girl who often acts without thinking. She lives in Westwald, studying hard every day in order to achieve her next goal.
Lydie Malen (voiced by Maria Naganawa)
The older sister of twin alchemists who run an Atelier. She’s kind and gentle, but can sometimes be a bit of an airhead. She is very enthusiastic about her interests.
Felt Blanchimont (voiced by Wataru Hatano)
An alchemist traveling with his childhood friend. Although he is considerably talented in alchemy, he is better for swordplay than study. He’s extremely inquisitive and cannot ignore people who need help.
Edge Vanhite (voiced by Nozomu Sasaki)
A member of the Mistruth (Editor’s Note: We could not find an official English translation for this name) group which investigates other worlds. He doesn’t talk much, but when he does he can be blunt. As a result, misunderstandings are common, but deep down he’s kind-hearted.
Hagel Boldness (voiced by Fumihiko Tachiki)
A reliable carpenter that resides in Westwald. This colorful and lively man will construct buildings commissioned by Nelke.
Pamela Ibis (voiced by Asuka Tanii)
A gentle peddler who is currently visiting Westwald who is also an enigma. She has a ladylike, somewhat elusive personality.
