Elise Lutus (エリーゼ・ルタス Eriize Rutasu?) is one of the protagonists of Tales of Xillia. She is a young girl from the mountain village of Ha Mil in A Jule. Despite her age, she is a master of spirit magic.
Elise aids in the escape of Alvin, Jude Mathis, and Milla Maxwell the first time the party arrives at Ha Mil, and she later meets them again when they return. She is shown being pelted by rocks by the villagers, and it is very clear that the people of Ha Mil are not fond of her being there. However, Jude helps her, and she runs off to a house in the back of the village, where Jude has a talk with her and becomes her first friend. He soon convinces the rest of the party to allow her to come along, and thus she leaves Ha Mil with her new friends, joining the party initially as a non-playable character.
The party passes through Samangan Forest on their way to Karaha Schall, where Elise joins the party by demonstrating that she can heal them with her artes. On their way out of the forest, they come across Jiao, who is trying to bring Elise back to the village of Ha Mil, and he reveals that he has known her since before she came to Ha Mil. Elise shows that she is afraid of returning with him, and the party resolves to protect her, resulting in a fight against Jiao. Afterward, everyone escapes the forest safely and heads into Karaha Schall, where they meet Drossel K. Schall, one of the Schall siblings, and Elise befriends her quickly.
Appearance and Personality
Elise is very shy due to the eerie and strange environment in which she was raised. She carries a purple doll called Tipo who does most of the talking for her. Though she dislikes the company of most people, she has a crush on Jude Mathis, who rescued her from the persecution she suffered in her home town. In fact, she states that Jude is her first very best friend. As the story proceeds, she gradually opens up and forms strong relationships with all the party members. At the end of the game, Elise seals Tipo's power, which marks the beginning of her emotional independence.
Elise wields staves in battle and specializes in healing and dark spirit magic. Her primary stat for her Liliale Orb is Mind, which affords her the highest magical defense of the party. Elise, with the aid of Tipo, can perform both melee attacks and spirit magic. Elise's characteristic skill is "Switching Tipo" (スイッチングティポ?), which has two modes. During "Tipo On", Tipo rides on her back, enabling ranged attacks from her staff and increasing the strength of her spirit artes, giving various bonus effects and reducing casting time. During "Tipo Off", Tipo hovers around her, enabling enhanced melee attacks which are delivered through Tipo and allowing him to protect Elise while she is casting. Elise's partner characteristic support skill is "Tipo Drain" (ティポドレイン Tipodorein?). While she is the slave character, Tipo will intermittently suck some of the energy out of the targeted enemy, converting it into a small amount of HP and TP for both her and the master.
- In a recent poll, Elise won most "ideal character to have as a younger sibling", with Sophie and Genis Sage behind her. Tipo won third place in a recent "favorite mascot" poll.
