Alfonse Zena Meridia ("Alf") is the prince of the Meridian Empire. He is L'Arc's best friend, Weiss' half-brother, and Real's Child of Eesa. He bonded with Girtab and Absin, and trained under Zamuel alongside L'Arc.

BackgroundEdit

Alf is the second in line for the throne with his half-brother Weiss being first in line. Weiss and Alf have different mothers, Alf's mother, Queen Gruene, is the former queen who had supposedly poisoned Weiss' mother Elena.

Character DevelopmentEdit

During his time at Zamuel's martial arts school he developed feelings for Adele but was always unsure and unable to express them as he could see how she felt about L'arc.

Alf aids L'arc early in his quest often going out of his way to help him and Ryfia accomplish their goals, even breaking the seal on Dragon Prison, which is forbidden.

He continues to aid L'arc throughout the beginning of the game and is a part of the mission at Anthrax. It is when Adele is captured and the Meridian empire attacks that Alf decides to not standby any longer. He finds Adele having been revealed as the Real Diva then Weiss reaches the top of the shrine and orders Adele to be killed. This is when through his desire to protect Adele revealed his power as a child of Eesa and was able to form a pact and then summon the sealed Rogress atop the shrine, by doing this he chooses to side with Real's Law. It is at this point that Serge and Leslie leave L'arc's party as well and choose to follow Alf.

From this point on Alf and his group often clash with L'arc's group over the Rogress and about which Law is right as Alf insists that Imaginal's law means death and that Real's law is the only hope for survival. Although he is still a reasonable person at this point and has no porblems working with L'arc's group to try and rescue Maria at the Ebur ruins.

Alf's methods to acquire rogress can at times be quite severe such as when he had Adele poison a lake with Hozone to draw out Rufunga.

After the rogress hunt portion of the game he is met again at Opalus where he assists with the defense there and becomes regarded as a hero by the people for standing up to the Empire.

A peace talk is arranged between Senator Greenhill and Weiss in Batrachites which Dynos and Adele interfere with to make Alf believe that it was Weiss' doing and to hunt him down. Alf follows Weiss on his starship and when the party reaches Weiss' room on the starship the party bears witness to Alf slaying his brother. It is at this point that Adele's hand in the matter is revealed and Alf decided he will take up the throne and take in Adele's sins as his own.

As the Meridian Emperor Alf comes across as harsh imposing a seemingly ridiculous charter known as the Imperial Charter that basically removes the people's freedom. This is however revealed by Clyde to be because Alf had stricken a deal with Real realizing that both laws where not good enough for the human races survival. Alf got Real to agree to stop the hozone crystillization if people could stop polluting and destroying the land as much as they did, thus the Imperial Charter which forced such heavy restrictions: like rationed food and water, not being able to go outside and even the amount of trash you were allowed to throw out.

Eventually L'arc's party attempts to talk with Alf at Diamant castle, suggesting that by working together they could neutralize the Hozone pollution. But Alf tells them that Eesa would never accept that. After L'arc refuses to hand over the remaining Rogress a fight ensues but is interrupted by Dynos who reports Ignacy's arrival. Adele convinces Alf to follow Ignacy's request and goes to Lascarde Skywalk to meet with Hosea. It is revealed that the whole thing was a trap and upon stepping onto a circle on the floor Alf and L'arc start to have their Eesa factor taken away, this process is unsuccessful on L'arc due to him being part divine race but it is successful on Alf and starts to kill him because it removes his hozone. Adele, not wanting to lose Alf because of how loyal he is to her, transfers her hozone into him, sacrificing herself.

After Hosea and Ignacy attempt to retreat, Alf overcome with grief and anger aids the party in the fight against Ignacy and later hears of Niko's death from L'arc. He then leaves the Lascarde Skywalk, vowing to take his revenge somehow.

The party gives chase to Alf and, after going through Dynos and Clyde, confront Alf at the Verct skywalk where he is eventually defeated and brought back to his senses. After giving L'arc his rogress he chooses to stay behind with Clyde and destroy Real's stone so that it can't harm any again with it's ways.

He aids the party a final time in the last part of the fight against Eesa and later promises to make a better empire for L'arc to wake up to.

PersonalityEdit

Alf is shown to be kind and to some degree a bit timid not being assertive with his feelings with Adele or his view on how the empire should be run instead opting to believe his brother will make a fine emperor and knows what he is doing. This changes after the incidents at Anthrax and he develops a twisted sense of what is right going so far as to poison a lake or blow up a volcano to try and wipe out a whole city in an attempt to fulfill his agreement with Real. He also becomes agressive in attitude showing no more signs of hesitation on what he wants to do.

Outfits Edit

TriviaEdit

-During the brief time he is controllable during the Ebur ruins section the player can take a look at his equipment and see that he is fittingly equipped with a sword called Excalibur which is unique to him.

-Like the other characters on Alf's team his equipment, outfit and gems cannot be changed during the time he is controlled nor does the player have access to any supplies L'arc's team has.

-The rogress Alf bonds with vary depending on the players actions, however he always gets Girtab and Absin. If he, Adele, and Leslie defeat L'Arc's group he will bond with Rufunga as well. However, if L'Arc's group defeats Alf's group then he will retreat and L'Arc will bond with Rufunga. However when it comes to Banchu, Papirisagu, Squill and Urgula if the player losses the fight/doesn't fufill it's conditions Alf will bond with the rogress instead of the player getting a game over. If the player fufills the conditions Alf will fail to arrive in time to bond with the rogress.

-Alf comes with the Regen and Bless effect during his time as a guest in L'arc's group with the fight with Ignacy and later the second battle against Luze. He also seems to have access to every type of magic available.
