It’s that time of the month again. As Atelier Shallie: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea’s July 17 release approaches, Gust has once again pushed out a handful of new tidbits about what players can expect when they get to dive into the game themselves. Chief among this information are three more character profiles, all of which are for familiar faces, as well as some details on how parts of their corresponding Character Events will play out. Read on below for our translation.

Returning Characters

as_trio1

Harry Olson (voiced by Mitsuaki Madono)
Occupation: Adventurer
Blood Type: O
Height: 175 cm. (5’9″)

“Is that…!? Excuse me, but would you mind handing that over to me!?”

A mysterious man, Harry is an eccentric self-styled adventurer of sorts who tends to pop up in a lot of places. With his trust partner Reyfer at his side, he goes around the world conducting scientific research and as such is focusing on the Dusk Sea for the time being. Having also had success as an investor, lately he’s also been working on having a trade route constructed that connects Stard and Vierzeberg.

Reyfer Luckberry (voiced by Yasunori Masutani)
Age: 38
Occupation: Treasure Hunter
Blood Type: AB
Height: 178 cm. (5’10”)

“Truth be told, a little birdie told me that there was treasure to be found around here, so…”

Reyfer is a competent treasure hunter who works alongside Harry as they roam the world together, ending up in the area where Atelier Shallie takes place in search of sea pirate treasure. Although he’s found actual treasure during his time as a hunter, he continues down on his journey primarily in search of romance.

as_trio3

Odelia (voiced by Kaori Sadohara
Age: Unknown
Occupation: Keithgrif’s Assisant
Height: 157 cm. (5’1″)

“Master, what would you say to us having tea time now?”

Odelia is an Automaton made in the very distant past who has top-notch capabilities. Having once worked as a librarian, nowadays she travels together with Keithgrif as his assistant. Although she has an extensive amount of knowledge on the past, part of her memory is seemingly damaged. Fond of books and sweets alike, she’s always keen to find an opportunity to take a break while she’s out and about.

More Character Events in which to Partake!

As always, these three returning characters have Character Events of your own that you can take part in as a way to better get to know them outside of the main storyline. Check out a handful of snippets below:

  • Harry is in search of hidden treasure that he has yet to see and is continually setting off to investigate ruins. Shallotte, keen on learning how to become rich, learns his secret from him. Wilbell, however, as someone who knows what’s really going on with respect to the state of his shop and his performance, ends up leaking the truth.
  • In Reyfer’s Character Events, the two Shallies lend him and Harry a hand as the pair go looking for treasure. However, trouble inevitably rears its ugly head during such work, resulting in things taking a turn for the unplanned. Meanwhile, Reyfer and Raoul turn out to be acquaintances dating way back. Apparently during Reyfer’s younger years, he did a lot of reckless things for the sake of both romance and treasure….
  • Odelia, as it turns out, has come to resemble her Master Keith in some respects, perhaps due to the time that they’ve spent together and her predilection for sweets has also only gotten stronger and stronger. Meanwhile, Albert tries to connect with her as an Automaton, but things don’t go so smoothly. Something about their discussions has them tense, making the pair worth keeping a close eye on.

Atelier Shallie: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea will be arriving in Japan for the PlayStation 3 on July 17.
