Elza Forte (エルザ フォルテ) is one of the main characters of the Aikatsu Stars! series second season and is a top idol and owner of the idol academy Neo Venus Ark (formerly known as Venus Ark). She is a sexy type idol whose preferred brand is her self-created brand, Perfect Queen.
Elza has dual-colored eyes of fiery red and gold. She has curly thigh length, raspberry pink-colored hair. Her hair is tied up into a wide ponytail, held up with a braided section of her hair, pinned with a light pink flower on the left side. Her chest-length lilac bangs part on her right side. Elza also has lilac highlights at the ends of her hair.
Elza has been a perfectionist ever since she was a child. She is the type of person who will do whatever it takes to achieve her goal, and because of that, ever since she obtained the Sun Premium Dress, Elza became quite self-centered and vain, ignoring others around her if she deems them no longer useful, looking down upon all others.
Elza is the heiress to Monaco, making her a princess.
Her great talent was compared to holding the ability to radiate the world.
The founding of her brand, Perfect Queen, as well as her idol academy, Venus Ark, shares the same purpose: to become the top and the best in the world among all brands, all schools, and all idols. For the sake of gathering all idols and brands of excellence, Elza has a vast knowledge on the topic.
Elza’s true purpose behind starting Venus Ark was so that she could gather students to draw out all Sun Premium Dresses in order to combine them into the Sun Premium Dress for her to obtain. Elza believes that when she obtains the Sun Premium Dress, only then will she be completely perfect and that her mother will acknowledge her ability and love her.
Elza initially paid no attention to Laura, as she had no brand of her own, and defines her aura as little to none. However, after seeing Laura's performance with Yume, Elza begins to express an interest in her, stating that apart from Hime, there just might be other idols at Four Star Academy with potential.
Kirara admires Elza and is constantly following her around, even addressing her as Elza-sama (エルザさま,Elza-sama). Sama is a Japanese honorific used when holding high respect and admiration towards someone.
Koharu admires Elza, even addressing her as Elza-sama (エルザさま,Elza-sama). Sama is a Japanese honorific used when holding high respect and admiration towards someone. Elza values Koharu for her designing skills and treats her with respect. Elza also has high hopes for her.
Yukie Grace Forte
Elza adores her mother, describing her radiance like that of the sun, and chases after Yukie to become just like her. As a child, Elza and always wished for her companionship and acknowledgement, however, due to Yukie's busy schedule, Elza is often left alone, leading her to believe that her mother will fully embrace her once she reaches perfection. During her childhood, when Yukie shared her photo of herself with the Sun Wings, it was then that Elza began her ambition to obtain it.
Elza (エルザ,Elza) originates from the name Elizabeth and means God of satisfaction, God of plenty or noble maid.
Forte (フォルテ,Forte) means a person's strongest suit, or it can refer to "forte" from the dynamics of music, meaning "loud".
Wait for me, idols of the world. I, Elza Forte... will plunder you all!

~ Elza Forte
She who controls the dresses controls Aikatsu.
~ Elza to Hime
These are raw gemstones. All potential idols begin like one of these pebbles. They polish through their Aikatsu until they eventually become beautiful gemstones. And if we idols are gemstones, then rings and crowns are dresses. An idol and her dress must be as one. It is a dress's duty to draw out the apex of our brilliance.
~ Elza to Koharu
All the talent in the world means nothing if you lack the will to make it shine.
~ Elza to Rei
The world is created from fashion. It is what brings passion, happiness, and joy to people.
~ Elza at the Kōkadō's Campaign Girl Audition
Behold this starry sky. Only a handful of stars are able to outshine the rest. Become the world's brightest star and shine more brilliantly than all the rest.
~ Elza to Yume
There is none who can stop me now.
~ Elza to herself before her Aikatsu Ranking Final Tournament Stage
I may have lost, but I am glad that you were here to see me sing my heart out.
~ Elza to Yukie
A ship without a destination is far too dangerous. One wrong turn, and it may even capsize.
