Alice was kidnapped as a small child by the company of Tylon and was converted into a Zoanthrope. In fact, after being subjected to physical experimentation, her latent powers were awakened, after which she was used as a test subject and given battle training. Alice managed to escape the organization before she could be brainwashed, but another girl wasn't so lucky. Her name was Uriko. Alice decided to fight back against Tylon and rescue the little girl who'd helped her escape with the help of Uriko's mother, Mitsuko. They found a brainwashed and violent Uriko in the Tylon Corporation secret lab but the young girl is defeated and found her mind. Grateful, Mitsuko choose to adopt Alice, we supposed that Alice lost her parents when she was abducted by the corporation. In the last scene, Alice is half-asleep in bed, mumbling about wanting an extra five minutes. When she checks her clock, she realizes that she is going to be late for school. She hurries to get dressed as Uriko comes to stand in her doorway, asking what's taking so long because her friends are waiting. Alice whines that her 'sister' didn't wake her up, and the two have to rush out of the house late. Alice has a piece of toast hanging from her mouth as she calls goodbye to Mitsuko and calls out to Uriko to slow down.
Love for the Wounded
After the fall of Tylon, Alice was all alone in the world. So it was Mitsuko, Uriko's mother, who adopted her into the Nonomura family so she could live out a peaceful life as a part of their family. After graduating high school, she became a nurse. One day, her friend Yugo was brought into the hospital where she worked. But as she tried to talk to him, he left the hospital. Concerned for his welfare, she chased after him to drag him back to the hospital for treatment. In her path, she bumps into Gado who asks her for a fight, Alice is annoyed with having to fight against Gado but wins the duel, Gado praises her skill and says she would be a competent leader of a Zoanthrope group that could bring peace between their species and the humans. Alice declines, saying she has her patients to attend to and returns to the hospital. Shortly after, she is tending to Yugo who is less than pleased with her fussing over him. Aside from what he thinks, she continues to nurse his wounds.
Alice, a gentle soul, shows great love and compassion to those who are sick and injured. Being a close friend with Yugo, she decides to follow him to participate in the activities of the Non-Government Organization (NGO), the World of Co-Existence (W.O.C.). In doing so, she leaves her job as a professional nurse. She becomes anxious when Yugo goes out alone to discover the origins of the 'XGC', a mark that appears on the bodies of Zoanthropes and brings great power but at the cost of their life. Being marked by the XGC herself, Alice does not hesitate to follow after Yugo... They find the man between the curse, Xion. After being defeated, Xion awakens in Alice's arms free from the influence he was under. She tells him his actions weren't his fault and supports him while taking him back to civilization. He asks her to take him to a place where he can be around people and make up for what he'd done.
The W.O.C. once a small volunteer group has now grown into a commercial enterprise. Alice finds herself confused amongst the big changes occurring in the company. Aside, she concerns herself over Yugo, who has recently taken up the invitation to participate in the tournament in the Zoanthrope Kingdom. She agrees with his reasons to go, having heard the rumors of suspicious activities occurring behind the scenes, though she feels saddened she wasn't invited and that Kenji knows more information than her in the circumstances. Though, she feels the young ninja is very mature and he wouldn't let his emotions overcome him like she would over Yugo, and supports his good work as the vice-president of the W.O.C. It's as she is considering these thoughts that she receives a letter from Long, inviting her to the tournament. She takes up the invitation and heads for the tournament. After her last fight in the tournament, against Long, Yugo appears just behind her supporting what appears to be an unconscious Cronos. Alice is surprised but looks greatly relieved that he's alright. She walks over to them and suddenly slaps Yugo across the face. He is completely stunned by this. She shouts at him for getting them involved in a situation that could have got them killed. He tries to comfort her, but she snaps away from his touch, crying silently.
Alice whose been living the life of a volunteer in the W.O.C, has recently been aiding those who have been injured in the earthquakes in the area. A young girl, dress in the clothes of a Shinto priestess appeared in the disaster area. Alice found this very strange under the circumstances and called to the girl. She requested that Alice tends to her friend, Ryoho. Not knowing the situation, she tried to refuse, but when she heard the girl mention that the earthquakes were their fault, Alice became intrigued and decided to follow her to find out more. Alice, having defeated Ryoho, demands to know what she was fighting against. Mana explains that Ryoho is a Dragon vessel and his existence is so dangerous that he had to be sealed so the dragon wouldn't wake. But the seal had come loose recently. Alice puts two and two together and realizes the dragon's power had caused the Zoanthrope violence and earthquakes. Mana is glad that she understands and that it was strong Zoanthropes such as her that were needed to reseal the dragon. She apologies to Alice for getting her involved in such a dangerous situation. Alice asks if the earthquakes will stop now and Mana assures her they will. Alice comments that it must be difficult just the two of them living alone in the temple and since the place is now under the watch of the W.O.C. that she will have to check up on things. Jokingly, she asks if Mana would like her to bring cake next time. Mana gladly says yes.
Alice is a kind-hearted woman, who cares deeply about her friends and family. She has also shown feelings for the main character, Yugo. Although she is against violence, she will fight if it is to help someone she cares for.

Yugo and Alice were childhood friends. During the Tylon events, they were allies against the multinational. Five years later, Alice met Yugo when he was brought into the hospital where she worked as a nurse. But quickly he left the place. Concerned for his welfare, she chased after him to drag him back for treatment. Yugo was less than pleased with her fussing over him. However, they became close friends and participate together in the W.O.C. organization. A love interest was never confirmed but the two have a really strong attachment toward each other. Alice often worried about the risk he takes like during the Cronos Tournament.
Kidnapped by the company of Tylon, Alice managed to escape the organization before she could be brainwashed, but another girl, who tried to escape with her, wasn't so lucky. Her name was Uriko. Alice decided to fight back against Tylon and rescue the little girl who'd helped her escape. With Mitsuko, Uriko's mother, they managed to save Uriko and break the brainwashing. After that, Mitsuko adopted her into the Nonomura family so she could live a peaceful life as a part of their family.
When Alice decided to fight back against Tylon to rescue Uriko she met Mitsuko, Uriko's mother. The two fight together against the corporation and the weapon which became Uriko. After Tylon's annihilation and the rescue of Uriko, Mitsuko chose to adopt Alice into the Nonomura family so she could live a peaceful life as a part of their family.
As a volunteer, she works as a translator in the organization. Being a close friend with Yugo, she decided to follow him to participate in the activities of the Non-Government Organization, the W.O.C, and become one of the first members. This small volunteer group quickly grew into a commercial enterprise. Alice finds herself confused among the big changes occurring in the company.

In human form, Alice is a relatively weak character with poor range. Her only real advantage is her speed and evasive skills. However, in beast form, she gains incredible strength and jumping ability, making her a tricky opponent to hit. Due to being well balanced, she seems easy to handle but, and especially in a competitive setting, as she has some of the trickiest moves to execute (particularly her instant combos), Alice is a difficult character to master. Also, she is one of the few characters who has an air throw ability.
As a Hyperbeast, in Bloody Roar: Primal Fury and beyond, Alice gains Consecutive Hit Effect and Power Legs as her two Abilities Plus. Respectively, the ability to freeze the opponents' block ability and hit them continuously and the ability to have increased leg attack performance. Alice is the only fighter to have access to Power Legs as an Ability Plus.
- Lifting Star Lane - Being directly in front of the opponent and successfully connecting the move while in rabbit form, Alice headbutts her opponent then rolls her opponent into a ball, she then kicks them into the sky with her foot and keeps them airborne with her knee then her nose and finishes it off with a powerful bicycle kick reverting her to human form. Appears in Bloody Roar 2 onwards.
- Bunny Love - Alice somersaults on her opponent while in rabbit form and, with a first punch, throws her opponent above her. Before they touch the ground, Alice uses an aggressive combo comprised of punches and kicks on them, with each hit creating a pink heart. She then knocks them upward with a rising spiral fist attack, sweeping away the opponent before she hits them away with her butt, ending in a cute pose in the air and an explosion of hearts. Appears in Bloody Roar 3 onwards.
In the V-Jump Books for Bloody Roar 3, it was revealed that a Mecha version of Alice, with the ability of hovering, was imagined during the production of the game, the sketch can even be seen in the guide.
In the fourth installment, Bloody Roar Primal Fury/Extreme, Alice undergoes a drastic appearance change. Supposedly for a more mature look as she grows up.
