When you first meet her, she and Torasu have been holding back the Runefaust army at the Tower of the Ancients. They are happy to see reinforcements and join you to continue the fight.


Alef is a spirited and kind young foxling. She teams up with Torasu to go with Max to defeat Darksol.


RoDD version of Alef


Alef's main purpose is to act as a late-game mage. She is very powerful and has the most magic of all 3 mages. Bolt level 2 is very useful for the first four battles you have Alef, and with efficient use of the spell, she will gain experience points very rapidly. She has the highest MP amount of all mages.

Her stats suffer because of this and she will not take hits very well compared to Anri or Tao. Also, her spells, as powerful as they are, are not very mana efficient and she can eat through her mana pool very quickly despite its large amount.

She easily will steal XP from other Force members if she damages or kills large amounts of enemy forces. Due to her spells reach, range and damage, Alef is very easy to do this with even more so then any other character in the game.
