Adele Nevanlinna is the childhood friend of L'Arc and Alf and the adopted granddaughter of Master Zamuel. She lives with Master Zamuel in his Martial Arts School in Diamant Royal City, and earns a Mastery in Magic there.

Story DevelopmentEdit

She, at first, seems like a kind, cheerful girl who cares a lot for her two friends. In side conversations, it also reveals that she shared a bed with Ryfia when they first arrived at Diamant, and talked about fashion and fun with Ryfia.

However, once Zamuel's school is attacked, she and Zamuel rush to find the culprits. L'Arc and his friends find her deep inside the pirates cave, being threatened by Paula and Luna into giving up her pendant, which belonged to her mother. Their group is soon saved by Serge, who sails away with them on a boat. Zamuel is not her true grandfather, but she treats him as such. Once they arrive at Antrax, she is abducted by soldiers and brought to the shrine, by Dynos.

She has a huge crush on L'Arc but refuses to admit it, and doesn't seem to care that Alf is in love with her. She changes her outfit once she is revealed to be the Diva, and begins to follow Real's Law. Once L'Arc comes to rescue her, she finally lashes out at him, telling him how jealous she is of Ryfia (L'Arc's true object of affection), and admits that she was always in love with him. She then summons Girtab to kill everyone, but L'Arc summons Simmah in order to protect Weiss. This angers her further, since L'Arc saved Ryfia's life previously, but (according to Adele) doesn't care if she is hurt.

After that, Alf, Adele, Serge, Leslie, Clyde and Dynos form a group opposing L'Arc and his allies. Although with Alf's group, Serge often works with L'Arc's party, in one case even allowing L'Arc to bond with Gula without attempting to stop him.

Adele often berates Ryfia and tries to convince Alf to kill L'Arc, once it is clear that he will not decide to accompany her on her journey. She also tries to kill L'Arc numerous times, although in Opalus, she saves L'Arc from being hit by a boulder and is knocked unconscious in the process. Later, when Alf is close to dying, she gives him some of her life energy and dies. Despite all of this, L'arc still cares for her and still refers to her as his friend.


After she is abducted and brought to a shrine be Dynos, it is revealed that she is another Diva as well, as her mother was Ms. Rafil, the former Diva. When her mother was young, she gave her daughter to the Lord Knights to raise during hard times, and that is how she ended up with Zamuel.


At first glance, Adele seems kind and soft spoken, and is known to be an excellent cook. She easily befriends Ryfia and is friends with L'Arc and Alf. However, she is truly lonely and she reached her boiling point, finally snapping and expressing her true nature: jealous, selfish and mean. Eventually, she reverts to her old self and wishes that she liked Alf instead of L'Arc.

Boss Fight Edit

Outfits Edit


  • A Nintendo Power review[citation needed] of Arc Rise Fantasia shows a couple of pictures with Adele as an official party member. This is either a mistake or a beta element; in the game's final release, Adele is only a guest party member and a boss.
  • Ryfia can be equiped with Adele's staff after L'Arc defeats Alf in the Verct Skywalk. Since it can be used at Allwise Infinite Dungeon, it is one of the few weapons (the other being, disputedly, Niko's weapon) which can be seen used by two different characters at the same time in the game.
  • Adele shares her name with real life British "diva" Adele (who can't cause hozone rain, but is still an impressive singer)
