Schia Donnerstage is a main supporting character in Atelier Marie: The Alchemist of Salburg. She also appears as a character in Atelier Elie: The Alchemist of Salburg 2, Marie & Elie: Two People's Atelier and Atelier Marie, Elie & Anis: Message on the Gentle Breeze.
Schia is the childhood friend of Marie. She is a gentle and caring person, and is always concerned about the well being of others. She is extremely close to Marie, and always offers to lend a helping hand. Schia is kind and supportive, but she is also in very poor health.
Schia's family were originally from Granville, but she moved to Salburg after her parent's job forced them to be relocated. Her family became wealthy after several years of hard work once coming to Salburg. Despite having a high stature, Schia treats all individuals equally, and is an incredibly mature person.
She is the first party member the player will recruit, although she is extremely weak, and she is also free to hire at any time in the game. Schia will make visits to the workshop frequently to check on Marie's progress. She will give Marie a variety of requests each time that she visits, and will also ask Marie if she'd like to accompany her to many events.
When Schia falls deathly ill, it will be up to Marlone to create an Elixir to cure her. If Schia is not cured, she will not die, but it will greatly compromise the game's ending as well as many events within the game.
6 years after the events of Atelier Marie, Schia's family has rose to multimillionare status. Schia found a talent for textiles and has new found success with her talents. Her family has become a topic of discussion around Salburg.
Schia is now ready to be wed, and it is arranged that she will marry a rich businessman from another city. She meets Elie for the first time after she visits the workshop. Schia was looking for Marie, but wishes Elie luck with her alchemy all the same. Eventually, an event in the game will occur that showes Schia's wedding and her offering the flower bouquet to Marie (who however refuses it).
