Elfir Traum (more commonly known as "Elie" or "Erie") is the main protagonist of Atelier Elie: The Alchemist of Salburg 2. She also appears in Atelier Marie, Elie & Anis: Message on the Gentle Breeze, Marie & Elie: Two People's Atelier and Atelier Elkrone: Dear for Otomate.
Elfir is a girl from a small village who enrolls in the alchemy academy of Salburg after being saved by Marlone, the protagonist of the previous game.
Role in Atelier ElieEdit
Elie grew up in the small village of Robison outside of Salburg. When she contracted a deadly illness, she was saved by the alchemist Marie. Because of this encounter with Marie, Elie became inspired to start studying alchemy. She leaves her town and travels to Salburg in order to enroll herself in the same academy that Marie attended, in hopes that she will one day become a great alchemist.
When Elie takes the entrance exam into the academy, she learns that has just barely passed, which causes her to be discouraged for much of the game. Instead of staying at the academy with the other students, Elie will be given her own workshop (and one rather familiar to the player) by her academy instructor Ingrid, who, despite Elie's low initial score, does see a substantial amount of potential in the girl. While completing her studies, Elie's ultimate goal is to become as great an alchemist as her savior was, and to hopefully meet her so that Elie can finally pass along her gratitude properly.
Elie is somewhat naive about things in the outside world, but is a kind person who always works hard. She is determined to become a better alchemist and to help others. She has two best friends whom she studies at the academy with, Eisel and Nordis... though just how much of a "friend" Eisel really is is occasionally open to debate.
Elie will have to travel outside of town to gather materials, fight dangerous monsters, synthesize items and complete tasks for the townspeople to improve popularity. With the help of her friends and several people in the town, Elie will have four years to complete her goals before she will graduate from the academy - although if she reaches the Meister level of study, she can remain for an additional two years.
Role in Atelier Marie, Elie & AnisEdit
Elie is a graduated alchemy student from the academy of Salburg. Together with Marlone, they are running a business together. One day, they are visited by their former teacher, Ingrid, who asks them to write new books for the academy's new library that is currently being constructed.
She stars out with a higher Meister (alchemy) Level than Marie, but lower Adventurer Level. She also starts out with her ultimate staff, just like Marie. There are some events that can only be viewed when playing as Elie and she is also the only protagonist who can encounter Phyruth.
Role in Atelier ElkroneEdit
Elfir is a girl who graduated from Elkrone's alchemy academy before Meriela. She is now managing a café specialised in cheesecakes, called Frasco Café (フラスコカフェ) in the town of Elkrone. Her cheesecakes are known over the entire continent for being delicious. She is a caring person.
Like with Marlone in this game, the fact that her backstory is different from the main games hints that this Elie is an alternative version of the character. Her backstory might be a reference to an ending featured in Atelier Elie where Elie becomes a pastry chef after graduating from the Salburg academy.
- Her last name, Traum, means "dream" in German. Following your dream is one of the main themes of Atelier Elie.
- In Atelier Marie, Elie & Anis it's implied through an event with Romauge that she came to take on a similar approach to Marie when it comes to love. Like Marie, she doesn't really think about love and is instead focusing on alchemy.
- She has a passion for sweets and is often associated with cheesecakes.
