Would you die for me please...?
Alice (アリス, Arisu) is a recurring Demon appearing in the Megami Tensei franchise, usually along with Demons Belial and Nebiros, who are always portrayed as being her father-figures, and the ones responsible for her existence as a Demon / Ghost. She is usually thought to be based on the homonymous character from the story Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll, as part of the Through the Looking Glass, as shown by her appearance as a young girl with blonde hair and blue dress, although these resemblances are mostly cosmetic and her characterization in the Franchise is heavily distorted as a mentally ill and borderline psychopathic Demonic Child
Although usually left untold, her backstory is shown in Raidou Kuzunoha 2, where Belial and Nebiros described her as a young girl loved by them who died for unknown reasons at a young age and had her Soul directed to Heaven by YHVH, before being snatched away from it and transformed into a Demon due to the interference of her father-figures, who were both disgusted by YHVH’s actions and judged them to be done out of selfishness and arrogance. Although despite contradicted, Belial and Nebiros’ version of Alice’s backstory may co-exist with further explanations that she is an evil spirit from a writer’s mind or a memory of the real Alice, given the mechanics of the Shin Megami Tensei series
