An alchemist filled with curiosity about all things. She researches bio-alchemy.
How To Unlock
Can be obtained via gacha.
Sucrose may be the assistant of the genius alchemist Albedo, but they could not be more different in research direction.
As opposed to studying the essence of alchemy and the ability to create new life, she is far more interested in using alchemy to modify existing life, all the better to add variety and color to this world.
Despite her youth, she has already achieved some brilliant results. For example, she has been able to increase the nectar output of Sweet Flowers by 70% by irrigating them with a special potion. Shehas also developed a special spray that allows Sunsettias to maintain their freshness for a whole month after being plucked from the branch.
Even people who were initially suspicious of her research inclinations have come to acknowledge her exceptional talents in the field of alchemy after seeing such results.
However, she merely considers these to be incidental steps on the path to a successful experiment, rather than the success itself. Her true aim is much more ambitious than this.
It's a secret, and is also her little dream.
Character Story 1
Bio-alchemy explores numerous lines of inquiry, all of which stem from Sucroser questions about living things in the world.
These questions, in turn, are born out of her insatiable curiosity, a faculty that is far more developed in her than it is in most.
For instance, Sucrose's curiosity was once drawn to the sweet flower, accepted by most people as simply being a source of sugar.
She wondered: Although sweetness is clearly the most readily identifiable feature of this plant, should that be grounds for limiting its application as we have tended to do? Does it not merit further study?
So, after a careful study of the various features of sweet flowers, she devised thirty-something distinct rearing plans along with numerous control groups to account fortemperature and other environmental conditions.
And yet, her experiment still underestimated just how many variations were possible. After the experiment began, Sucrose found herself with more questions rather than fewer, and the novel discoveries that her experiment yielded gave her inspiration for further research.
Sucrose is incapable of leaving a question unattended — it makes her restless, even guilty, to ignore it. Spurred on by this quirk of her temperament, her rearing plans grew in number to almost three hundred.
The result was a whole new series of sweet flower strains: Some with thrice the number of flowers, some with heads five or six times the normal size that could even float in the wind, and some even producing a sweet-tasting fruit.
Months of experimentation later, Sucrose had finally answered every last one of her questions pertaining to sweet flowers. As she finished writing up her research notes, she let out a long sigh of relief.
Though she was physically and mentally exhausted, the sight of stack after stack of her bio-alchemical research volumes stretching around three walls of the room gave her a deep sense of joy and satisfaction.
Character Story 2
To the people around her, Sucrose comes across as a quiet, introverted alchemist with little interest in the lives of others.
In fact, the truth is quite the opposite. Sucrose is fascinated by absolutely everything that exists in the world. The only thing is, she finds the discipline of social interaction to be far mpore difficult to master than that of alchemy.
In alchemy, the process of trial-and-error coupled with a determination to get to the truth is sufficient to bring you to your answer eventually. But with interpersonal relationships, there is the added complication of having to factor in manners, moods, and other unquantifiable variables. To make things worse, there seems to be no room for an approach that relies heavily on making errors.
Hence, Sucrose decided to avoid such variables at all costs and stick to her familiar methods in satisfying her curiosity.
For instance, Sucrose had always been curious about whether she and Cat's Tail bartender Diona, both of whom have animal ears, had any shared ancestry.
In fact, this was not a private matter, and most people would simply ask the question. But Sucrose was concerned that it would be a sensitive topic — she, for one, did not like people drawing attention to her ears.
So, she resorted to the method she knew best: observation.
For one whole month, Diona constantly had an unnerving sense that someone was secretly watching her. She assumed that one of the tavern patrons was stalking her, and was none too happy about it.
"Similar genome, but ultimately different ancestry. Cat connection merits further study. Note: Unable to obtain bone sample thus far."
This is the conclusion that Sucrose has jotted down in her notebook based on her findings so far.
Bio-alchemy aside, Sucrose made one further discovery from this episode.
That is to say, judging by the pair of cat-ear spectacles she made for herself after the event, it would appear that she has finally come to comprehend a certain uniquely feline variety of cuteness. She is too shy to wear them in public, however, and, only puts them on when alone in her room.
