Alice is a practical girl that views things more realistically than most and is quite clever. She holds a high value in life and the inhabitants of Wonderland fall in love with her because of that, since the value of life is very debatable (more so unvaluable) in their world. Alice appears as a strong-willed girl, with a rather cynically dark side behind it all, which differs her from the original Alice from Lewis Carroll's novel. Alice is one of the few characters who is like the original. Though she is more aware of her surroundings and questions things more, she is still seen staring off into space and claims that Wonderland and its residents are all figments of her imagination. Many of the other characters note that Alice unintentionally leads them on (meaning she's somehow like 'a light at the end of a tunnel'). Her views on life in general have made her a valuable part of Wonderland life as she teaches many of them along her adventure. She often considers returning home, but is dissuaded by painful headaches induced by Nightmare whenever she tries to recall memories of her sisters Edith and Lorina or whether she considers if she has seen Peter before or not. She has a tendency (sometimes) to get flustered and insecure, and is also somewhat jealous of her elder sister, Lorina, who she deems more 'beautiful' and 'graceful' than herself.
The Liddell Family consisted of Alice's mother, father, Edith (her younger sister), Lorina (her older sister), and Alice herself. They were a happy family, until the death of Alice's mother, after which her father became a workaholic in his grief. Edith became a malignant presence, and resented Alice due to the fact that she hadn't shed a single tear at their mother's funeral. Because of the isolation towards her from her two family members, Alice became very close to her elder sister, Lorina. Lorina was the one who understood Alice the most, and they often spent most of their precious time together (Sunday afternoons).
Lorina is stated to have died when Alice was set for college, and Alice went to Wonderland through her dreams that consisted of when she was younger with Lorina.
Clock Tower ResidentsEdit
Julius is an original character, though it is suggested that he represents Time (who has an argument with the Mad Hatter) from the original Alice in Wonderland book. He is in charge of the only neutral district, the Clock Tower Plaza; it is
also shown that he controls the world's time. As the fixer of clocks (or Hearts), he is regarded as the mortician of Wonderland, since the fixed clocks will become the hearts of reborn Wonderland residents.
In the manga, Julius is initially the closest character to Alice; she trusts him and lives in his Clock Tower with him . While seemingly apathetic and anti-social, several characters mention how much he must like Alice because of his eagerness to help her get home and to give her a room to stay in. Later on, Julius shows jealousy towards the other men in Alice's life and tells her to leave, saying that she can go wherever she chooses as he thinks she feels obligated to stay. When Alice refuses to leave, Julius admits that he doesn't find her annoying. As his attachment to Alice grows, he becomes protective of her when other characters threaten to take her away.
It is seen that Julius does not like roller coasters, crowds, and Blood Dupre. In the games, Julius is voiced by Takehito Koyasu.
Clover Tower Residents Edit
Nightmare is an incubus. He is based on The Caterpillar in the original Alice in Wonderland, but is usually seen when Alice is sleeping. Later, he comes to the clock tower with a resident of Clover. He is the one who allowed Peter to bring Alice into Wonderland. He calls himself a 'sickly dream demon', claiming he is the embodiment of bad dreams. He interacts mostly with Alice, but also appears before Peter and Julius as well. It appears he along with Peter knows why Alice was sent to their world. He also claims to love her. He is sickly in the books and is seen coughing up blood, but hates doctors and injections. He wears an eyepatch for unmentioned reasons and seems to not have any weapon. In the second game, Clover no Kuni, he revealed to be the head of the Clover Tower.
In the games, Nightmare is voiced by Tomokazu Sugita.
Gray is based on the Lizard in the original Alice in Wonderland. He works for Nightmare, though is often reduced to acting as a nanny of sorts in order to force Nightmare to do his work, and tends to be a workaholic, pushing his subordinates to do the same.
In contrast, he is notably a poor cook and artist, despite his best efforts. By nature, Gray is a kind man who cares for people and animals, but he is also a former assassin and a deadly combatant. As a result, he is unwillingly Ace's designated sparring partner as he is the only one who can match the Knight of Hearts' skill. Gray often compares and sees himself as inferior to Julius, particularly in regards to his relationship to Alice. The lizard on his neck can come to life, and whatever you do to it, he can feel.
In the games, Gray is voiced by Kazuya Nakai.
Pierce is the counterpart of the Dormouse who appears in the Clover no Kuni no Alice game as well as Joker no Kuni no Alice and is the undertaker for the Hatters. He has functional mouse ears and a tail and suffers from insomnia as a result of constantly drinking coffee out of paranoia at the thought of being eaten by Boris. He used to work for the Hatter family, but ran away prior to the beginning of the series due to being terrorized by Boris and the twins. He adores Nightmare because he helps him sleep and is often worried about his health. Pierce is terrified of Boris, who often tries to eat him and constantly makes him feel like his life is in danger. However, he likes Peter and Elliot because he doesn't feel threatened around rabbits.
In an side chapter of the manga, he attempts to kiss Alice soon as he recognizes her as an outsider. Alice slaps him in the face in response and asks him if he "tries to kiss strangers often".
In the games, Pierce is voiced by Sōichirō Hoshi.
Castle of Hearts ResidentsEdit
Peter White is based off of the White Rabbit. Peter is the one who went to the real world and brought Alice to Wonderland. He insisted that Alice follow him, and when she refused, Peter kidnapped her. Other than having a pair of white rabbit ears, wearing a watch, and wearing a suit coat, he has little in common with the original White Rabbit. He has sociopathic tendencies, meaning that he will not hesitate to kill anyone he dislikes, especially if they get between him and Alice. Alice mentions hating him on several occasions, but he is persistent in gaining her love. Peter is able to turn into an actual rabbit, which he does in order to gain Alice's affections since she has a soft spot for his rabbit form, and works for the Queen of Hearts in Heart Castle as a Prime Minister. He is often caught rhyming as he speaks; however, in the original version, he is heard talking normally without rhyming. It appears he and Nightmare know why Alice was brought to his world, and it appears he is somehow connected to her older sister. In the games, Peter is voiced by Kōki Miyata.
Ace is an original character, though he is possibly based on the Knave of Hearts. He is the Knight of Heart Castle and considered the most skilled swordsman in Wonderland, but has a notoriously bad sense of direction and often forgets how to get to places and carries around camping gear because of this. Though seemingly harmless at first, he becomes more devious over time and demonstrates a tendency towards violence. His lost adventures are revealed to be assassinations of people that the Joker or the Clockmaker want him to kill; he helps Julius Monrey collect clocks from people who have died while killing those who get in his way. Ace is one of the first characters to admit that he has no romantic interest in Alice, though that changes shortly after he says it. Despite confessing to love Alice, she notes how he used her as a shield when Peter threatened to shoot him. He almost kills Alice because she is changing everyone in Wonderland, but mentions that if he killed her, he couldn't hear her heartbeat anymore, so he changes his mind.
He is also revealed to be the warden of the prison in Wonderland.
In the games, Ace is voiced by Daisuke Hirakawa.
Vivaldi is based upon The Queen of Hearts. Like the character in Carroll's book, she regularly orders the beheading of servants for the smallest of mishaps or to simply relieve her stress. She tends to use the majestic plural and is demanding and dangerous. A beautiful and composed woman who shows little emotion, she does expose her feelings towards Blood when Peter and Ace inform her of his interest and advances towards Alice. She loves cute things and has a secret room full of stuffed animals. Only a few select maids know of her collection. Vivaldi is secretly Blood's older sister, and as the Queen of Hearts, she is the only person aside from Alice who is able to keep Peter in line. In the games, Vivalda is voiced by Yuhko Kaida.
Hatter Mansion ResidentsEdit
Leader of the Hatter mafia, he is charming, flirtatious, laid-back, and loves black tea. Blood is nothing like the Mad Hatter, the character he represents. He rules the Hatter Mansion area and is strongly hated by Mary Gowland for making his name known throughout the Land of Hearts. He is also involved in a civil war with the Queen of Hearts. Alice notices right away that he looks exactly like her ex-boyfriend. Nightmare created his face to look identical to her ex-boyfriend, though his reasons for doing so are unknown. In the beginning, Blood states he has no intention of loving Alice and discusses trying to kill her. He even attempts to choke her at one point, and shoots at her during a ball held by Vivaldi. However, like many others, Blood develops a strong interest in her, and in the manga, he antagonizes Julius just so Alice will leave Julius to stay with Blood, though she never actually leaves the Clock Tower. It is even suggested later in the manga that Blood is in fact jealous and directs his negative feelings at Alice. He thinks Alice flirts with everyone, and in the manga, when he was taking a bath with Elliot, Dee, and Dum, Dee said he would rather bathe with Alice instead of Elliot and Dum agreed. Elliot said that she wouldn't want to. Blood said, "Don't think Alice is so pure. She is able to seduce all the men."
In the games, he is a bit less violent toward Alice than in the manga. In the games, he is voiced by Katsuyuki Konishi.
Tweedle Dee and DumEdit
Dee and Dum are based on the characters Tweedledum and Tweedledee though besides being twins and finishing each others' sentences on occasion, they look and act nothing like their counterparts. Dee and Dum are the young gatekeepers to the Hatter Mansion. Due to their young age, they often slack off and love money and killing. They have violent tendencies and actually tried to kill Alice upon first meeting her, thinking that slitting her throat would be a fun game. They don't think life is important, thinking that Alice, like everyone else, will have a replacement. In the game Clover no Kuni no Alice, they are revealed to be able to transform into adult forms at will.They don't like Elliot March and always play tricks on him. While it may seem like they are no different from each other, there are a few subtle differences. While Dum's favorite thing is money, Dee's favorite thing is vacation time.
In the games, they are voiced by Jun Fukuyama.
Other than having a pair of brown hare ears, Elliot shares no likeness to the March Hare, upon which he is based. He first seems willing to help Alice, until he points his weapon at her and says he wants to "test his new gun". But later in the manga as well as the games, Elliot comes across as a kind and sweet person with the willingness to kill people without hesitation. Elliot is dedicated to serving Blood, due to the fact that Blood helped Elliot escape prison for a terrible sin. Elliot had destroyed his friend's clock as his friend had wished. Because Wonderland needs replacements, the act of destroying a clock is taboo and he was thrown in jail.
Elliot constantly states that he isn't a rabbit, instead sometimes claiming he is a dog. He also claims that he hates carrots and only eats them cooked into recipes such as carrot cake.
In the games, Elliot is voiced by Tsuguo Mogami.
Amusement Park ResidentsEdit
Boris is the counterpart of the Cheshire Cat. Like the character he is based on, Boris loves riddles. He has functional cat ears and a tail, several piercings and tattoos, and dresses in short, exposing outfits with a pink boa and a collar with a chain. Boris works in the Amusement Park for Mary Gowland. Though he is a sly, devious character with a childish persona, he becomes close to Alice. He is friends with Dee and Dum, despite the fact that they work for opposing groups, and even goes to Hatter Mansion to have tea parties and interact with Elliot and Blood. Boris has on numerous occasions snuck into the Castle of Hearts to 'play' with the guards and other workers. When his luck ran out, Alice found him badly wounded and bloody, and after a reprimanding from Alice, Boris promised to change his careless and ruthless ways for Alice's sake.
In the manga. when Ace threatens to kill Alice, Boris only shoots at his feet saying, "I can't kill you because it would make Alice sad", showing how much he cares for Alice.
In the games, Boris is voiced by Noriaki Sugiyama.
Gowland is the owner of the Amusement Park. Gowland is a possible parody of The Duchess, as he is a marquis and semi owner of Cheshire Cat. However, he gets angry at Boris when he bleeds on his floor. Other than those times, he enjoys the company of him and Alice. He is an older man with mood swings, but is generally a cheery and very social person. He has the power to pull out his violin, which turns into a kind of gun or rifle at his will, in various sizes, though he has no talent playing it. He invites Alice to come to the park any time she likes and visits her at the clock tower.
His name a is play on the amusement park ride 'Merry-Go-Round'. He has a deep hatred for Blood Dupre for spreading word about his name. In the manga, it's shown that once he tried to shoot Blood with his violin. In the games, Gowland is voiced by Kenyu Horiuchi.
An enigmatic character who the player must visit and play a card game with in order to change the season in the Joker no Kuni game. Two Jokers exist within the story—one is a polite and modest man, while his counterpart is foul-mouthed and condescending. He also claims Alice needs him. The Jokers are in charge of the circus and the prison in Wonderland.
In Joker no Kuni, they are seen executing Alice's older sister, who symbolizes all the memories of Alice that took place before Wonderland. He also appears in the manga in a side chapter where he challenges Alice to a card game as the chapter ends.
In the games, Joker is voiced by Akira Ishida.
She was Alice's older sister. She was beautiful and graceful, so much so that Alice was jealous. A long time ago, Alice's boyfriend left her for Lorina.
Alice's little sister. She is said to be attending a boarding school at the beginning of the story, thus does not accompany Alice and Lorina during their outing that leads to Alice arriving in Wonderland. Alice is very jealous of her beauty, but still loves her more than anything.
Other Wonderland ResidentsEdit
- Most of the people of Wonderland are servants and guards. They are men and women who all look the same except for the uniforms they wear that represent their district location. They have no eyes and look and dress the same as the other servants in their district. Citizens of Wonderland think these people are unimportant and identical, but Alice is able to recognize their individual differences. As soon as Alice does, though, the guards fall in love with her. Though they are not given names, Alice still thinks of them as people and becomes angered when others do not consider them as such. In the game, it's discovered that Alice can give them faces so she could remember each one of them.
- Besides servants, there are also normal citizens that have no roles in the 'game' of Wonderland. People without roles have no eyes and little to differentiate between them. Among the citizens, there are some rebels who try to destroy their friends' clocks so they cannot be replaced.
