A gritty reimagining of the tale of Alice in Wonderland.
Character Concepts - Queen of Hearts & Alice
Alice - The main protagonist of the game, Alice is a independent, often cold and sarcastic young woman with a troubled past which led to spending ten years in a catatonic state in Rutledge Asylum. In Wonderland, Alice shows a violent streak when fighting enemies. She gains unique weapons throughout the game based on childhood toys and ordinary household objects.
Alice's body is covered in burn scars, primarily on her face and right arm. The damage has left her blind in her right eye, leaving it milky in appearance. She wears a catholic school uniform, the same one all the other little girl's at the asylum wear.
Queen of Hearts - The insane, murderous dictator who rules over Wonderland without mercy and is the main antagonist of the game. Her body is composed mainly of tentacles.
The Queen of Hearts appearance mimics that of Rutledge Asylum's strict abbess, or the head of the group of nuns which run the Asylum and take care of those admitted.
The story begins when Alice's house is burnt down by an accidental fire, killing her family and leaving her as the only survivor. As time progresses Alice loses touch with reality. She is institutionalized in Rutledge Asylum run by a religious group, where she is observed and treated. Ten years after Alice was committed to Rutledge, she finds herself sucked back into a Wonderland that has been twisted by her own broken mind. The White Rabbit summons Alice to aid a radically altered Wonderland, which became a twisted version of itself as it came under the horrible rule of the Queen of Hearts. The Cheshire Cat serves as Alice's companion throughout the game, frequently appearing to guide her with cryptic comments.
Wonderland, being a creation of Alice's mind, has been corrupted by her insanity. Alice's primary objective is to save Wonderland, and in doing so restore her own sanity.
Alice enters the cathedral where she spies the Queen of Hearts.
