Emeralda is a nanomachine colony that was initially designed by Kim Kasim to help mankind. Her creation occurred in the Zeboim era, using Elly's gene pattern. Miang, who was controlling the government at the time, decreed that Kim use his nanomachine work to artificially advance human evolution. This prompted Kim to remove Emeralda from the main research facility. When Miang caught wind of this, she sent military officials to seize the colony, but Emeralda's nanomachines stopped themselves and dismantled into a perpetual state.  
When Emeralda joins the party, she appears to be a child, and only uses a limited vocabulary. She is also very fond of Fei, who resembles Kim Kasim (Kim Kasim is an early incarnate of Fei). Through a side-quest available late in the game, Emeralda can gain an adult appearance instead of that of a child. She is also capable of morphing her body, due to the nature of her composition.
