"With her hope to return to dust, It will return to grave with everything that desire to live."
Alriune (T-04-53) is an Abnormality that is tall, pink, and looks similar to a horse. She has 6 pointed legs, a long neck covered in bright teal leaves, and a humanoid head with empty eye sockets and pink dust coming out of her mouth. She is also wearing a pink sunhat with a leaf. Pink petals fall around her.
Her ability will trigger when her Qliphoth counter reach 0. Her counter might decrease when getting a Good or Bad mental result. Alriune will escape when her counter reach 0, teleporting by using a pink flower-like curtain while she breach. She can teleport around the department by performing this action to different locations, except the main room.
When an employee is in the same room as her, petals will start to show up above her after some time, appearing in intervals from transparent to visible, up to 3 petals. When the 3 petals are visible, Alriune will deal a high amount of White Damage to any employees in the same room and soon after, teleport to another location. If the employee runs out of mental health as a result of this effect, instead of going into a panicked state, they will be covered by a pink curtain like Alriune and when the curtain disappears, they will be covered in petals and leaves and considered dead. She will resume her breach until subdued or the day ends.
Alriune is a doll who yearned to be human. While loved by many people for her soulful eyes, time passed and she was abandoned in a dark forest where the crows stole them from her. As more time went by, being abandoned caused her mind, heart, and life to start to fade away. She started to turn to dust.
Alriune seems to repeat a cycle of life, similar to 'dust you are and to dust you shall return'. This concept seem to be mentioned in her encyclopedia entries, and in the case that she has to 'return to dust', she will bring everyone else to her own fate.
Where Alriune was found and how she arrived in the facility is still unknown.
Alriune responds to the four works in order of best to worst: Instinct, Insight, Attachment, and Repression.
Like all Abnormalities, its energy output is determined by the number of PE Boxes (Positive Enkephalin boxes) at the end of the interaction.
Alriune's emotional state is divided into 3 sections, bad, normal, and good. Completing 0-7 E Boxes will cause her to feel distressed, completing 8-15 will cause her to feel normal, and 16-22 will make her to be happy. Its usual waiting time after a task is around 15 seconds. Its Qliphoth counter is 1.
