Appearance

Young Alpine

Alpine during his youth

During his youth and his years as a Knight of the Blue Sky, Alpine had a clean-shaved face and wide-opened eyes, as well as a pointy nose.[1] Covering the right side of his face is a moderate-size green bang that reached below his neck, reaching to his abdomen. The left side of his face was, however, slightly covered as well but left his blue eye visible to the public. Encompassing his blue iris are slanted figured eyes, crowned with thin, green eyebrows. Further, he spots thin eyelashes and small lips, and a normal sized neck.[2] Fifty years later, after Overdrive and Resha's death, Alice gains several different facial features, with the two most prominent aspects being a mustache and a beard on his face. His eyelashes and eyebrows are slightly thicker. However, he retrained his hair figure similar to how he kept it years back; with the right side covering his face and the left side left visible. His face is now covered in wrinkles. Alpine is of average height and weight.[3]

Alpine's current attire

Alpine's current attire

Alpine's former outfit consist of a blue clad armor that spots a red orb on the center of the collar. Adorning the shoulders are two silver plates supporting the loose cape that reaches below his feet, and, the plain-white cape, expands shoulder width. Engraved on the armor's abdomen is an intricate silver symbol surrounded by dark outlines. On the sides of the armor, placed directly opposite to each other, are two, separate, figures that appeal the armor's shoulders, similar to wings and a shield; further, several golden strands hang from the opened shoulders. His arms are shielded by the armor's garments, which hide a white attire underneath. Around the waist are two blue plates, respectively, hanging loose that spot many golden patterns. Alpine's thighs are covered by white baggy pants. His choice of footwear is that of blue boots that resemble the armor's design. His most prominent gear is two wing-like objects that spring up from his hair, being kept in the same place since his years as a Knight of the Blue Sky.[2] Years later, Alpine wears a dark robe with lighter outlines, and heart-shaped figures around the waist and reaching down diagonally to the opening of his cape. Under the cape are normal, plain clothes with the Symphonia logo in the center, and several thick clothes placed on top of each other. He wears simple shoes.[4]

Personality

Alpine loses his temper

Alpine loses his temper

Alpine shows a rather cruel nature towards intent of harm upon Resha Valentine, always standing by her side and easily losing his temper when she is in danger. When Shiba Roses demands entrance to the castle to see Resha, Alpine coldly orders the guards to let him in, which he intends to use in his favor to teach him a "lesson" the hard way; claiming that guys like him don't understand words. When Shiba makes a remark of Resha's hatred towards making the Holy Bring, a furious Alpine is quick to dictate that he is committing treason against the Kingdom. Noting this as treason, he takes a foot forward and states that he will handle Shiba, showing his affection to his believes: the Kingdom.[5] Despite said statement, Alpine is also noted to be calm most of the time, and even admit his true perception of things,[6] and retains his calm nature even when he is explaining things of great magnitude.[7] When Resha 'dies', he contains his tears and believes that Shiba, whom was chosen by Resha as the Rave Master, should receive his support as well.[8]

He also does not argue with people when they have their minds set on something, as he accepts Shiba's wager of losing his life in order to see who the real Rave Master is, and who Rave will elect as the new Rave Master.[9] However, he shows signs of sorrow when people he loves deeply die.[10]

History

Alpine stands next to Resha

Alpine stands next to Resha

Fifty years ago, Alpine, as a member of the Knights of the Blue Sky, guarded Resha Valentine when she stood in front of a crowd of fans, the crowd thanking her for protecting their world with her powers of Etherion. Once the spectacle comes to a close, inside the castle Alpine witnesses Resha's ever-growing headache problem; commenting to himself that her headaches only seem to worsen when she is not employing the powers of Etherion. A while later, when Shiba Roses appears in front of the castle's gates demanding entrance, Alpine orders one of the soldiers protecting the castle's gates to let Shiba enter, to teach him a lesson with actions as mere words will not get to a man like him. Alpine heads to Shiba's location, and confronts him as quickly as he gets there; only to be told by the young man that his only goal is to take Resha with him to another place. However, this angers Alpine leading him to call Shiba a traitor for falsely pointing fingers at the royal kingdom. Alpine gets ready to battle, but Clea takes his place instead and defeats Shiba rather quickly. Before leaving the area, Alpine confesses that he believes Shiba holds great power, but in his current state he has no chances of beating them.[1][11]

Synopsis

The Truth of Elie arc

Old friends reunite

Old friends reunite

Awaiting for Shiba's arrival to his whereabouts, Alpine stands outside with his cape flapping about as he comments on Shiba's entrance.[15] Guiding him inside the cave, Alpine calls out to his friend, happy to be able to meet with Shiba once again after so many years; embracing him with open arms. As Shiba comments on how happy he is to see one of his old comrades again, and noting as he is not dead, Alpine responds by claiming that enabling the other warriors' souls inhabit animals was his doing. Seconds after, he states that Shiba has not changed one bit, and then proceeds to a small room alongside Shiba as they talk about the Rave pieces and their locations. The two then continue walking until they exit the room and enter a cave-like vicinity where the last Rave is located, the Rave of Truth. They converse as two other characters join them in preparation for Haru's arrival.[16]

The Rave Master has been chosen

The Rave Master has been chosen

After Haru arrives, Alpine stands behind him, stating that his statement of being able to win the war and for them not to worry is despicable. Alpine introduces himself to Haru and tells him that he holds the Rave of Truth, calling him a descendant of Symphonia. He moves forward and tells the other that the final trial should begin as soon as they're ready. Shiba takes the glowing Rave of Truth out of his pocket and presents it to Haru. However, when it reaches Haru's hands, it stops to glow. Alpine quickly orders him to hand it back to Shiba, which he does, and in return it begins to glow once again. He begins to explain that the Rave of Truth will elect its Rave Master, and that since it stopped glowing when it left Shiba's hands Haru is not the real Rave Master. Rather; Shiba shall continue the path of Rave Master as Resha and the fallen warriors are the voice of "Rave." Shiba then readies for battle as Alpine stands as witness. Drinking a potion made by Alice, Shiba regains his youth, with Alpine saying that the Sword Saint has returned.[17]

Alpine watches the battle

Alpine watches the battle

Alpine watches as Haru is dominated by Shiba, eager to witness the second's strength. He then sees Plue digging under ground attempting to evade the battle, but Alpine tells him to calm down as he already knows that there can only be one Rave Master. As the battle continues, Alpine comments on Shiba's abilities returning to him after so long, only to see Haru on the floor seconds later.[18] He continues to watch as Haru forcefully gets up and attacks Shiba; brutally.[19] Minutes later he sees Haru evading Shiba's swings, noting as they are too strong for him to simply block. This, however, proves to be futile as Shiba still holds the upper hand by grievously injuring Haru; receiving attention from Galein Musica, who is told that the battle is just as serious by Alpine. He listens to Shiba as he begins to tell Haru that his drive when in battle was none other than Resha Valentine.[20]

Galein tells Alpine to stop the battle

Alpine is confronted by Galein

Haru rises again, which makes Alpine ponder his reason for fighting and wielding a sword. As Haru is hit once again, Alpine is grabbed by the neck by Galein, who questions the true motives behind this trail; though Alpine simply tells him that it is up to Shiba to decide as the Rave of Truth falls from his pocket. He continues to watch and notices that Haru was finally able to deflect one of Shiba's strikes. Awestruck, he names Haru the victory as the second Rave master shatters Shiba's sword into pieces, naming him the new Rave Master.[21]

Alpine says to follow him

With the battle having ended, Haru sees Shiba's life slowly fading away. He confronts the three men, but Alpine reassures him that they tried to stop him. Before Shiba leaves the world of the living, Elie comes rushing in, prompting Alpine to think of Resha Valentine. He watches as Elie embraces Shiba and dies in her hands moments later.[22] Exiting the trial's location, Alpine stands outside as Haru handles Berial rather quickly, thinking to himself that Shiba did not choose the wrong man. He attends Shiba's burial, and rapidly tells the Rave Warriors that they must learn the true nature of the Dark Brings now that all the Rave pieces have been gathered.[23]

Alpine begins to reveal the truth about the Dark Brings

Alpine begins to reveal the truth about the Dark Brings

Alpine walks around as the others wait for him to start speaking. He approaches an hourglass and flips it around, using it to make a point when mankind committed a crime against time, also known as Endless. He shares with them the story of mankind being at its verge of extinction, until the last human reached Star Memory and turned back time; creating a second world. He uses a chart to explain the process to them, and also tells them that at the same time the power to kill mankind was created, known as Endless. He smacks the chart he wrote on and warns the Rave Warriors that the power of Endless will soon belong to a single person, shocking them.[24]

Alpine is told Elie lost her memory

Alpine's reaction when told Elie lost her memory

Continuing, Alpine reveals to them that Endless's true form is that of a Dark Bring and that Lucia holds the power to annihilate the entire human race after he obtains Endless. He then listens as Saga Pendragon communicates with Haru via his Rave. He tells them that the time to awaken Elie's memory has arrived as she is the only one that can unite Rave.[25] This shocks Alpine, not knowing Elie had lost her memories, and he begins to compare her with Resha now that he knows she also has the power of Etherion.[26] The next morning, Alpine stands outside as he gets ready to part ways with the Rave Warriors; he tells them to take care of themselves.[27]

After the final battle is over, and Haru is revived via the Stellar Memory: as were the others, soon thereafter, he marries Elie and invites his friends to said wedding. Alpine attends the wedding.[28]
