Alice is said to be based off of Lewis Carrolls Reverend Charles Lutwidge Dodgson character from his famous story Alice In Wonderland. The Shin Megami Tensei Alice shares many physical similarities with the character most notably the blue dress and the blond hair. Also her signature move Die For Me seems to draw inspiration from the book as it features spearwielding cards. Furthermore her Shin Megami Tensei: IMAGINE attack Mad Tea Party takes further inspiration from the book as it references the chapter in which the protagonist met the Mad Hatter and March Hare. However some say that she is also based off of a myth of an Aryan girl who died at a young age. When Alice died and became a spirit she gained extreme magical power that drove her insane. Alice was used to scare Scandinavian children into behaving or else Alice would visit them at night and kill them so that she may become friends with them. Due to the overwhelming support of both theories it is easy to assume both are valid and that she is a hybrid of both figures. That both are valid seems to be the case though since the Strange Journey Compendium hints at both. Taken from
