Alipheese Fateburn VIII (Eighth), also known as Black Alice, is one of the main antagonists of the game. During her reign as Monster Lord, she attempted to conquer the world. Supposedly defeated by Heinrich 500 years prior, she was kept alive by Goddess Ilias, who had a vital role for the girl in her sinister plans.
Black Alice is extremely ambitious and desires to rule the world, resulting in her reign of terror during her time as Monster Lord. According to Lilith & Lilim, she was supposedly kind to her subordinates, but this is overshadowed by her extremely sadistic and cruel treatment of her enemies. Her innocent appearance and playful attitude are all a facade overlying her evil intentions.
Why she’s referred to as “Black” Alice is unknown. This may refer to either her true form or her personality.
Black Alice mentions that she gained a desire to rule once she was born. She began her tyranny over the world 500 years prior, but Heinrich rose up to fight against the evil Monster Lord with the help of the Four Spirits. However, Ilias intervened, needing Black Alice alive for her own evil plans; to control the darkness in the world to prevent Alice I (First) from resurrecting. Heinrich revolted against Ilias and her angels shortly thereafter, but ultimately met his demise due to their holy energy eroding his body. Black Alice also bargained for the release of the criminal angel Promestein, seemingly to help with the plan, but secretly created an alliance with the heretic scientist. What happened with Black Alice during the intervening 500 years is unknown, but she may have been recruiting monsters to aid in her cause.
Lilith & Lilim mention that Black Alice entrusted them to lead the succubi to a haven for their own race.
Queen Elf reports to Granberia that Black Alice came to her and Queen Fairy to recruit them to her cause, but they declined. Granberia then states that there is a rumor about a character calling allies named “Black Alice”, rebelling against the Monster Lord.
At the same time, she recruits Shirohebi's sister and tells her not to worry about the Monster Lord’s causes. To prove her status as the former Monster Lord, Black Alice provides the lamia some of her power.
After Luka rebels against Ilias, the goddess orders Black Alice to send her rebel minions to assist in her recreation plan. The two talk about the "wonderful party" that has just begun. Ilias allows Black Alice's minions to play with the humans, who are no longer needed, but reminds Black Alice of her role in maintaining the darkness in the world, prompting Black Alice to tease Ilias for her inability to control the darkness that is needed to keep the world in balance, which prevents her from her desire to exterminate monsters. Ilias gives off an annoyed look and Black Alice comments that the human's faith would diminish if they heard that; Ilias then warns Black Alice not to speak so impudently, saying that she can easily be replaced. After replying that she'll be careful, the two set out on recreating the world; Black Alice's minions are all ready to devour the current humans and serve as the next generation of monsters.
After Promestein retreats from the Monster Lord’s Castle and Luka chases her to Remina, Black Alice appears and reveals Promestein's secret laboratory, before vanishing just as suddenly as she appeared.
After Luka and a young Alice defeat Promestein, she attempts to inject herself with a syringe, but Black Alice appears and stops her, stating that it's too early to use the White Rabbit injection. After Promestein vanishes, Alice angrily asks why she is mimicking the 8th Monster Lord, but Black Alice asserts her identity, her radiant power serving as proof. She then explains that Ilias saved her from Heinrich's clutches for her own reasons, and that Black Alice serves her just to further her goal of exterminating the human race. Black Alice then vanishes afterward.
Sometime later, Black Alice and Ilias compliment the "party" starting; Black Alice sent her subordinates to Sabasa and Grangold kingdoms, being the most powerful. Ilias then talks about the White Rabbit Promestein attempted to use, stating that her plan may go astray if it goes wrong. Ilias then states that no matter what one drinks, they will not become the same as a god, and even so it isn't as pleasant as one thinks. Ilias then dispatches Black Alice afterward.
Once Luka recovers Undine and has all four Spirits returned to his possession, Promestein and Black Alice are shown taunting Eden for her repeated failures. After Promestein leaves, Black Alice jokingly says they should have a tea party with Ilias, but Cupid arrives and says that the tea and cookies would taste bad. Eden angrily orders Cupid to give her report later, but Black Alice decides to leave, not wanting to interrupt. Eden scowls, stating that they don't understand the pain Ilias had gone through.
When Luka and Alice arrive at the Sealed Sinner's Prison to record data on the holy energy used to seal Heinrich in order to divert it against Ilias's forces, Black Alice arrives to play with Luka. Their "dance" is interrupted by the appearance of Chamaeru, Granaeru, Runaeru, and several Veteran Angel Soldiers, who state that Eden is accusing Black Alice of interfering with Ilias's plans. The eighth Monster Lord is then forced to withdraw.
After the defeat of Lucia, Laplace, and La Croix, and the subsequent destruction of the Drain Lab, Promestein notes that she is now the only remaining Seeker of Truth left standing. She then reminisces on her past and how she came to where she is. At this point, Black Alice appears and the two discuss their alliance. Knowing that Cupid has been spying on them for a while, Promestein asks Black Alice to dispose of the spy as they no longer need Eden's watchdog when their meeting ends. Black Alice warps right next to Cupid and comments on her deliciousness; despite being immune to surface dwellers, Cupid shows signs of fear and lets out a horrified scream as Black Alice attacks her off-screen.
Upon Luka's arrival in Heaven, a dismayed Eden leaves to challenge him. However, with no one to defend Ilias, Black Alice and Promestein gang up on her, revealing their plan of creating the ultimate deity of darkness and light by having Black Alice, enhanced with the White Rabbit drug containing the genes of the first Monster Lord, absorb Ilias. While Promestein seemed content with giving Black Alice such power, she then reveals she is fully aware than the eighth Monster Lord leaked information to the enemy and is partially responsible for the losses in Promestein's Chimeric Monsters. Black Alice just laughs as Promestein leaves to confront Luka.
On confronting Luka, Promestein injects a second White Rabbit optimized for her which Black Alice is unaware of, also planning to become the ultimate deity by absorbing Luka. Promestein apparently intends to betray Black Alice, saying becoming the ultimate deity would allow her to counter Black Alice.
After defeating Promestein, Luka and Alice march forward to face Black Alice. She reveals an ascended form compared to before when she toyed with Luka, and when that proves insufficient, she even shows her 'true' form, now mutated with the original Dark God's genes and some of Ilias' own power. This also falls to the joint powers of Hero and Monster Lord, and Black Alice allows her body and power to go berserk, warping her mind and desire to consume the world rather than to control it.
However, even Black Alice's ultimate form is eventually defeated and she disintegrates, putting an end to the eighth Monster Lord once and for all. However, Ilias emerges from the remains of Black Alice, revealing that Promestein's and Black Alice's betrayal was all part of Ilias's master plan to become the ultimate deity herself, believing that Luka could defeat both of her former subordinates.
One month after Ilias's defeat, Luka learns that Lilith & Lilim are concerned with the demise of Black Alice and by her warped personality. Believing to be the only people in the world who looked up to her, they continue to cherish and respect their former lord.
"A legendary warmongering Monster Lord that was struck down by Heinrich. She was said to wield incredibly high powered magic, and greedy ambitions. Right after she was defeated by Heinrich, she was saved by Ilias and taken under her umbrella..."
Black Alice (Second Form)
""Black Alice", a former Monster Lord. Imbued with the power of Dark God Alipheese, she consumed Ilias to increase her power even further. Numerous monster organs cover her body, enabling her to devour men in countless ways.
Even in this state, it doesn't seem as if she's truly showing all of her power. If defeated, expect to be preyed on in a horrible way..."
Black Alice (Third Form)
""Black Alice", a former Monster Lord, now unleashing her true power. Comprised of the genes of seemingly every monster that has ever existed, her power itself is truly that of a God's.
Even this form was defeated by Heinrich in the past, but consuming Ilias drastically increased her power. Her brutal nature is no longer hidden, and is on full display."
Black Alice (Final Form)
""Black Alice", a former Monster Lord, who has now drawn up every ounce of power from her Dark God Alipheese heritage. Pushed past the critical point, her body is endlessly expanding at an explosive rate.
Containing the genes of every monster to have ever existed, her power is unmatched by any other monster. Her runaway power has warped her desire to control the world, to instead want to consume it. In response to her overwhelming predation urge, her body itself has morphed into a being able to do just that. If left alone, she truly will consume it."

This battle is not too hard, as her only clincher is her one-hit KO bind via Push and Monster Lord's All-Night Vigil. Gnome can swiftly escape the bind, but Undine has a high chance of avoiding all her attacks. When her health reaches 1/4 empty, the fight will end.
If Luka loses, Black Alice shrinks him and lets her bear devour him via pulling him inside its body with tentacles coming out of its chest. If he falls to Monster Lord's All-Night Vigil, Black Alice straddles him and rapes him using a predatory organ in place of her vagina where he is then killed.
This battle is a little tricky due to her Predatory Mouth Release, which leads to Demonic Predation which can only be countered by Daystar, so keep at least 8 SP up. Summon all the Four Spirits and play a little defensively with Meditation and she should go down.
If Luka loses, he is eaten by her large predatory organ.
A step up from the previous fight; she can attack thrice per turn, use Wind Spirit Summon and Earth Spirit Summon, and also has a killer bind via Swallow Prey that requires Undine to block. The same strategy should be used like with the previous battle: Four Spirits and Meditation.
If Luka loses, he is eaten by her large predatory organ.
This battle is a culmination of her previous forms as well as various monsters Luka has fought in the past. First, if Luka tries to summon more than one spirit, she will cancel them out with Element Cancel. Second, she can summon all four fake spirits which determines the outcome of her next attack, but before doing so she will use Element Cancel, so counter with the opposite spirit, and keep at least 4 SP up for this. Thirdly and final, she has three types of binds minus the ones followed by her spirits: Elimination: Squeeze, which requires Struggling to escape; Elimination: Chew, which requires Attack to escape; and Elimination: Suck, which requires Guarding.
This battle is best played defensively, using Meditation and reapplying canceled spirits. Use Undine first to avoid her attacks, but when the switch comes, stay on the applied spirit to avoid her cancel. Alice will whittle her health down slowly, and Black Alice will eventually fall.
Another good strategy is to keep at least 4 SP at all times, and use Salamander with another spirit to intentionally force her to use Element Cancel, which simply wastes her turn while Luka refills his SP completely.
If Luka loses, Black Alice straddles him and makes him orgasm using her vagina while he is being pulled into her mass of flesh.
"So you were defeated by Black Alice, and came here... For some reason, I'm starting to get nostalgic about Heinrich's time... Her attacks are very strong, but you can avoid many of them with a serene state. Still, her painful attacks will hit every so often. Keep some SP available for healing. In addition, if you're defeated while she rapes you, there will be an additional insult. I won't say you should watch it... Now go, oh brave Heinr... I mean, Luka. Like the ancient legendary Hero, you should be able to win as well."
Black Alice (Second Form)
"...Don't mind the slightly ugly appearance. Since your opponent was once a Monster Lord, a serene state is effective. Without Gnome, you also can't break free of her restraint. Therefore, summoning Gnome and Undine is mandatory. When she uses her charge move to prey on you, you cannot evade or guard. You must use your Counter, or you will be eaten. If she defeats you with that, you will simply be preyed on. There won't be any other end for you... Now go, oh brave Luka. Slay the evil Monster Lord with your blade of justice."
Black Alice (Third Form)
"Welcome back, Luka. I will give you my secret plan for victory... Like before, Undine and Gnome are both required. But in this form, she's also using spirits. Be sure to counter them. Now go, oh brave Luka. Settle this long battle of Light and Darkness..."
Black Alice (Final Form)
"This will probably be the last evaluation meeting. Your quest will be finished at last... Her behavior patterns are complex, and tough to deal with. Even the names of her skills are filled with dread... Like before, you need to counter her spirits with your own. But if you summon more than one, she will cancel them out. Undine will help your evasion, and Gnome will let you break free faster... When she's fighting in a normal state, one should always be summoned. In addition, she has two types of binds. Pay attention to what part of your body is bound to see if you should struggle or attack... In addition, if she looks like she's going to charge something up, you must use your counter. Also, she is able to use all four fake spirits herself. And, in the same turn, she can cancel out your own! Do not forget to counter those spirits. A mistake here will mean your instant loss. She is indeed the culmination of every opponent you've ever faced. Obtain victory with your own hand! In addition, every way she can eliminate you leads to further insults. But surely you wouldn't go through all of them...? Now go, oh brave Luka. Destroy the ancient evil, and become a True Hero."
- Black Alice strongly resembles the eponymous Alice from Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.
- The drug "White Rabbit", which Black Alice and Promestein use, is also a further reference to Carroll's Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.
- With Alice I (First) as her ancestor and Alice XV (Fifteenth) and Alice XVI (Sixteenth) being Alice VIII’s descendants, it is possible that Black Alice has a Lamia form. However, her "true form" has a Lamia-like tail in addition to many Scylla-like tentacles, though to what degree its appearance was modified from the White Rabbit and/or swallowing Ilias is unknown.
- According to Tamamo, Black Alice strayed from her initial path of being a Monster Lord due to an unrevealed “incident” which made her hate humanity.
- Also according to Tamamo, Alice XVI hating humanity would be worse than the disaster Black Alice brought.
- However, despite this, Black Alice's level and stats, while not modified by the White Rabbit, are much higher than Alice XVI's. This is possibly (but unlikely) be due to Ilias empowering Black Alice, or (more likely) the intervening 500 years of time to hone her experience and power.
- Black Alice is one of the two monsters shown to be capable of cancelling the power of the Four Spirits when Luka has summoned them, the other being Tamamo.
- Black Alice's use of this ability seems to be more refined as she is able cancel multiple elements at once, while Tamamo only demonstrates the cancellation of a single element.
- After dealing with the situation in the Succubus Village, among talking with Lilith & Lilim, they note that a certain hero, who is similar to Luka, “destroyed Black Alice’s love”. This hero is heavily implied to be Heinrich.
- Due to the fact her own motivation for hating humans is never explored, unlike Ilias' and Promestein's own motivations, Black Alice comes off as more of a traditional and less of a tragic villain compared to the other two.
- Black Alice seems to have an obsession with rabbits, often stating to prefer it over other things such as foxes.
- Black Alice's final theme is a sped up version of Bach's Gavotte I, from his 3rd English Suite in G Minor.
- The incantation Black Alice utters when using Element Cancel ("Recede inmundissimi spiritus!") translates as "Depart foul spirits!"
