Arc of Alchemist

Ace Nightlok
An excellent sharpshooter who works as one of Garett's subordinates. He is a man of few words, generally regarded as a calm and level-headed presence amongst his comrades. From time to time he acts as an advisor for Erin, and has a nice relationship with Darius' son.

Erin Van Dyne
A combat engineer who specializes in explosives. She is the daughter of Garett Van Dyne, whose footsteps she hopes to follow. One of her pet peeves is the belief that she is only included in the squad because of Garett, so she is eager to prove herself. Like Garett, Quinn's abilities inspire great curiosity.

Idea Factory International describes Arc of Alchemist and its features:

Story
Enter the desert in search of the key to save humanity - the Great Power. One year, the king declared that he would send a large-scale investigation team to the Desert of Beginnings. Chosen to captain this mission, Quinn Bravesford leads her soldiers into battle against a swath of enemy nations for the sake of her kingdom. Quinn gazes at the ancient alchemic device, the Lunagear, within her hand. According to the legends of yore, once the Lunagear is equipped with the four Orbs, it will unlock the Great Power that will save humanity. Only one Orb resides in Quinn's Lunagear. Collecting the four Orbs for the Lunagear, however, is a mere legend.

With the threat of dangerous creatures and Machine Dolls wandering the desert, one of the enemy nations, the Principality of Neuhaven, has dispatched their military in search of the Great Power. Now, Quinn and her band of allies must fight against the Principality of Neuhaven in hopes to find the Great Power and save humanity. Quinn steels herself, but even so, she can't help but doubt the existence of the Great Power...

Key Features
