Overview

Rorolina Frixell is a young alchemist who was trained under Astrid Zexis. She serves as the main protagonist in Atelier Rorona, where she's given the task in keeping the alchemist workshop in Arland from shutting down by completing assignments issued by the kingdom. After she successfully completes all kingdom assignments, she decides to take a journey in hopes to inspire others to be interested in alchemy. She finds a student in Totooria Helmold during her travels and serves as her master in Atelier Totori. Rorona also appears in Atelier Meruru in a childish form of herself.

Background

On the day Rorona arrived in Arland, she helped the kingdom utilize the ancient machinery that they built their kingdom upon and prosperity quickly flourished in Arland. Rorona and Astrid were awarded to operate an alchemist workshop inside the kingdom. However, afters years of dwindling business and reputation, the kingdom issued their intent to close down the workshop. Upon receiving the message from Sterkenburg Cranach, an Arland knight, Astrid transfers ownership of the workshop over to Rorona, where she takes over responsibility of keeping the workshop open by completing the kingdom's assignments.

After completing all of the kingdom assignments and keeping her alchemist workshop open, she decides to go on a journey to spread her knowledge of alchemy to the rest of the land. During her travels, she meets up with Totori and after seeing her successfully follow her instructions, takes her in as her first student. She also assists Totori in her search for her long lost mother, a famous adventurer who suddenly disappeared.

Years later, Rorona was asked by Gio to head to the Arls Kingdom to assist Meruru on her quest to further develop her kingdom to be of equal footing to Arland. Due to a freak occurance, Rorona suddenly appeared in a childlike form. She asked Totori to take her duties at first, but eventually makes her way to Arls herself in her childlike appearance.
