Alice Garnet Nakata first appeared
in SNK's Pachinko title, Garou Densetsu: The Legend of Wild Wolf. Her
origin is unknown, although some fans speculate that she is based on a minor
SNK character named Alice Chrysler, who was one of Kim
Kaphwan's students and developed a strong admiration for Terry
In SNK's Pachinko
games, Alice follows Terry Bogard around cheering for him and his friends. In Days
of Memories, Alice is a nurse in training attending to the protagonist.
She is born of half-Japanese and American descent, her full name being Alice
Garnet Nakata. Before she decided to pursue her profession, she lived her
summers and winters in America and her springs and falls in Japan. Her sunny
attitude and cheerful energy keeps everyone in high spirits. She isn't the
best at her job, often unintentionally harming her patients during her
treatments, and she is secretly afraid that she'll be fired for incompetence.
Due to a conspiracy created by Magaki,

Blue Mary and Terry Bogard. In a way, she's also the "Rule 63" version of Terry - similar to how
Sakura is basically the female
Alice has a quirky personality and equally quirky moves. On
that note, you'll look pretty ridiculous if you end up losing to her... as most
of her attacks just seem like she's messing around and having fun. In a way, I
like her comedic approach to fighting, but it also takes some of the seriousness
away from the fight. Alice's outfit is pretty good. I like it. Overall, she's not a bad addition to
the KOF XIV roster.
