In this interview, Tomori Kusunoki talks about her impression of Alchemy Stars and tells us some interesting points about her character Vice. One of the interesting points that she brought up was that Vice has a special connection with the main protagonist and for some reason, she can control Soroz, one of the Colossus.
For those new to the game, a Colossus is an enormous vehicle equipped with self-aware AI that is used for combat, transport and flight. However, a Colossus can only be navigated by a Caelestites. The main question here is, how is Vice, an Aurorian, able to control a Colossus? What is her past? Is she really an Aurorian? Players will find out about this during the playthrough!
Vice is a 17-year-old female Aurorian and a member of the Illumina Federation. Gentle, talented, smart and was once groomed by the Illumina Federation for greatness, Vice lost confidence after failing a test. She is currently the captain of the Illumina Expedition Team. Wanting to prove herself to the federation, she decided to explore the dangerous remote ruins, leading her to meet the protagonist. While trying to prove herself, she gradually learned of the protagonist’s plight and discovered that the Aurorians are facing a great threat once again. This is how Vice ends up joining the protagonist in the fight against the Eclipsites.
The world of Alchemy Stars is set in an Earth-like planet called Auroria, which got caught in an orbital change caused by war and was drawn toward a giant star known as the “Sun.” Under the scorching sun, only the areas around the twilight rim have a diurnal cycle and moderate climate for beings to live. The biggest known continent in Auroria is the central mainland. Astra is located on the west of the mainland and is its subcontinent.
The story begins with Vice discovering the main protagonist during an expedition, which subsequently attracts incoming Eclipsites. Players will take on the role of the main protagonist who is a survivor of the Caelestites. The protagonist grew up in an underground Colossus hiding and was isolated from the world for 17 years. The players’ job is to guide Vice and the other Aurorians in battles to fend off incoming Eclipsites and eventually activate the Colossus and flee the ruins.
While escaping, the protagonist receives distress signals from a fellow survivor and learns about the presence of Schummer, a member of the Eclipse. Schummer is revealed wanting to locate Battle Modules to refit her Colossus, the Aviduz, and restore its might.
Upon learning that Schummer plans to pilot Aviduz and attack Lumopolis, the protagonist hurries to the city in the sky just in time to see Schummer launching her assault.
