Escha Malier is a young girl living in the small remote town Corseit, and has now become a new offical of the development team of the Corseit's branch of the Unentered Area Special Investigation Bureau. Prior to becoming an government official, she helped with alchemy work. She was officially assigned to the team at the same time as Logix "Logy" Fiscario, and the two will work together.
She is often quite quirky and cheerful, and often shows her feelings very clearly. She is full of energy and is also very curious. She is sometimes a little shy, though, and may not always think about her actions. She is very hardworking, and became a part of the development project because she wanted to help others by using her own knowledge about older alchemy. She loves sweets, especially apple tart.
Her family have since long been apple farmers and are managing the area around what appears to be the oldest tree of the apple orchard. Her mother Miria passed away when she was young, and her mother's close friend Clone has a motherly role to her.
To go to The Unexplored Ruin has been her dream since she was young. Her mother used to read her many folklores, and many of them were about The Unexplored Ruin. Therefore, she feels like the ruin is important to her.
Her "tail" is an accessory made by her mother. Escha doesn't know how it was made and how it can move.
