Anise’s story begins in the slums of Daath, head quarters to the Order of Lorelei. Her father had a habit of being a giving man and they easily found themselves in debt and owing lots of money to debt collectors and loan sharks. Anise often found herself looking over any contracts that were offered to them to make sure they weren’t getting jipped The girl yearned to protect her family, resentful that they were always targeted and hoped to one day get into the Daath military which was near impossible for someone of her status. Instead she found herself looking into hopefully marrying rich one day and spellcasting classes to learn what little she could, which happened to be impressive, especially for someone her age. After hearing about how she was able to use a fonic arte, Grand Maestro Mohs sent out an offer to her parents to clear all of their debt if they worked for the church. Of course…they signed this before Anise could look it over. She was now a puppet for Moh’s whim due to her parent’s debt. Anise was trained in the military and was assigned as a Fon Master Guardian. Ion picked her to be by his side and protect him which was likely part of Moh’s plan to assure the Fon Master did as he said. During this time Anise was scouting for future husbands and met Dist the Reaper (or Rose as he likes to call himself) though the meeting didn’t go too well they did become friends and he modified her stuffed animal given to her by her mother in a weapon of sorts. In the world, the feud between the countries of Kimlasca and Malkuth were heating up. In an effort to gain peace the emperor of Malkuth sent Colonel Jade Curtiss to ask the Fon Master to help with a peace treaty. Mohs told Ion to deny the request since Daath is suppose to be neutral and sent a messenger to tell the Colonel the next day and to state that Ion had suddenly become ill. Jade, not being shaken by this hunts down Anise and goes on a tour to see the monuments to try and persuade her to ask the Fon Master for an appointment While Anise brings Ion dinner (since now he’s a prisoner since he wanted to go out and make a difference) He asks her if it was truly right that he wanted peace. Anise told his that the people have anxieties because of war, but when he’s around it’s like their worries disappear. Ion, talking inspiration from her words decided that to be Fon Master to bring peace and asked her to bring him to Jade.
Aaaaannnnnnnd cue mission impossible music! While Jade starts a riot, Anise and Ion have to repel down the side of the church. Once down they joined him and made a break for it. They joined him on a boat and as they made their way out to his ship at sea the Moh’s caught on to their plan and tried to capture them. Unable to shake them without accidentally killing them, Anise demonstrates her abilities with her plush, Tokunaga. After giving it her all they still managed to get surrounded and Ion used his awesome Fon Master powers to knock them out, fainting in the process. Once safe in the boat, they feel the earth shake and a shining light heading from Kimlasca to Malkuth. Jade decides he wants to investigate instead of…you know…getting Ion to Kimlasca and getting a treaty done.
So off to Engave! Anise somehow lost Ion and bumped into our main hero and heroine, asking where he may be. Unfortunately they don’t meet him until later so she goes off searching again. Later she gets Jade and they trail behind Luke and the gang until the get to the Liger’s nest. Anise reunites with Ion, Jade pwns a Lyger and life moves on~ Luke gets taken for questioning along with Tear on the Tartarus, after he explains everything Jade explains that they are on a mission of peace from the Emperor and Jade intends on using Luke as a valuable pawn piece since he is the Duke’s son and the King’s nephew. Anise on the other hand wants to use him for money and is constantly flirting with him (to little or no avail). After Luke explores the ship it’s soon attacked and everyone is trapped. Oracle knight had seized the ship along with a few of the God Generals, Anise and Ion were trapped in another section of the ship when it happened. Ion quickly passed her the peace treaty to keep it safe before she got knocked out of the ship through the window (all the while screaming “I’ll kill you bastards!”) Anise decided to continue with their mission, quickly moving on ahead to St. Binah. After sensing danger and tension there she moved ahead to Kaitzur to try and get to Baticul. She didn’t have a passport to get through, though luckily the Jade gang finally caught up with her.
Asch attacked and had a lovely reunion with Luke before ♥Master Van♥ showed up. There was argument over who was ordering the 6 God Generals around and he said “Not it”. Next day there was commotion at the port and it was being attacked by Gloomieta, the dreaded God General of frowns. Everyone goes to Choral Castle because she’s holding the maintenance chief captive from the port. Once there a few events happened that weren’t important to her and then they leave for the port again. They went to Chesedonia and Van left with the gloomy one in toll and then they rocked another boat and finally made it to Baticul. Luke was determined to be ambassador and they were sent to Akzeriuth. Once there, Luke was stupid and blew the whole place up, killing everyone except for the important people to the plot conveniently enough. Luke was a whiney emo kid and everyone decided to hate him at the same time for good reasons.
Skipping on ahead like waaay ahead in a volcano somewhere, Anise is acting rather strange and hurried and Jade calls her out on it. She of course denies it. Once they return to Daath Anise says there’s something super special important that Ion needs to do and rushes off with him. When the Jade gang went to give chase they were surrounded by Legretta and her soldiers. Gloomieta quickly swooped in and rescued them. Anise had taken Ion to the Sephiroth on Mohs orders. She had explained that it was her job from the beginning to report on Ion to Mohs before throwing a stuffed animal with a note attached to it at them, telling them how to have access to where she was going. The Jade gang realized that Anise was being controlled by Mohs on threat of her parents being harmed. Once they got there, Ion was reading the score while Anise stood to the side. Ion died from reading the score and Anise blamed his death on herself since she lead him to Mohs and followed the Maestros’ whim. Gloomieta heard what Anise had done and demanded a d-d-d-d-d-duel! Anise agreed and Arietta said she’d get her people to call her people to let her know when.
Anise contemplates death and sorrow and what it means to lose someone you love. And even though she ‘betrayed the group’ no one hated her unlike Luke which shows you who is really liked in the series. Moar emo and black tears and Anise wins the duel against her arch nemesis. She emos some more because Arietta will never know twu luv. Mohs got away but was infused with the 7th fonon and turned into a monster and went crazy. After putting him out of his misery, the group moved on to stop one of the other crazy guys in the game. Right before the final battle Anise had a heart to heart with Jade. She explained how she was going to denounce her heathen ways and try and become the first female Fon Master. Jade was like “Yeah, I know.” and Anise booed at him for spoiling her surprise to him. The final battle contained many dramatic speeches of drama and fighting...and more drama…and made many wonder WHY WON’T HE JUST DIE ALREADY?!? After defeating him Anise told Luke he better come back since she needed a patron to help support the Order. Luke went off that be an hero while the others escaped. Two years later, ‘Luke’ came back as he promised and there was much rejoicing in the land. Except she doesn't get to rejoice because she ends up in this weird world.
Pulled From: The epilogue when Luke comes back all epic hero style saying he had a promise to keep.
Personality: On the surface Anise is a bright, cheerful, happy-go-lucky girl. In actuality her happy smile is a mask to cover what’s really going on. She usually has a smile on her lips but deep down she has a lot on her mind, especially with her responsibilities and goals. Even with all that going on she always seems to try and look at the glass half full. Underneath her mask, she is a practical girl; she tries to think things through to the best of her ability and do what would be good for the majority. Of course, even the most mature kids have slip ups in a sense and one can see that with her dark side. It’s completely opposite of what she usually tried to portray. She curses and says threats that she intends to keep. Usually if one gets on her bad side or not in her favor they’ll easily see this side quickly, which consists of her being rather ruthless and cutthroat. Anise has the training of a soldier thanks to the Order of Lorelei.
The reason for this is to help pay off her father’s debts that the church offered to take on in return for her family’s cooperation. Due to this debt, she became a money grubber and tried to marry rich. Often she could be found flirting with someone who has the biggest bank account in the vicinity. She has always been mature for her age, forced to grow up and be responsible because of her parent’s money problems and the journey she went through to save the world.
One incident that changed her forever was when Anise had been blackmail by Mohs. She had to lead her charge, the Fon Master, into a trap, or else her parents would be killed. Unfortunately since she didn’t have enough trust in the people in her group, she followed his orders and led her assumed first love to his death. This changed her, making her feel responsible for what happened to him. She decided to change her ways, becoming less focused on money and more on carrying on Ion’s vision. She wants to become the first female Fon Master and help the church and it’s people live in a world without the score.
Now that Anise is 16, she has gotten better with hiding behind her mask, and is a bit more open and truthful. Anise is also an information gatherer; she likes to hear all the gossip and know what’s going on 24/7.This is mainly out of habit from working as a mole in the group (This of course was forced on her since she had to work in order to pay off her parent's debt.) The puppeteer is also bright and witty; she was able to learn a complicated magic spell really quickly just by sneaking a glance in a spell casting dojo. Of course the down side to that is she can be manipulative and tricky if and when she wants to be.
Future Plans: Anise is going to find and gather as much information as she can about the world and what's happening to it before debating on joining a guild. She may work freelance for money or sell information if she gets something juicy or discovers something important
