Sumeragi wanted our power. The power of Resurrection... So we gave it to them... All of them. I guess they should have been more specific. Our name is Elise. And you're about to be the next to un-die.
~ Elise's dominant personality to Gunvolt.

Elise, also known as "The Eternal Envy", is a major antagonist in the 2014 video game Azure Striker Gunvolt. She is a Sumeragi prisoner, later one of The Sumeragi Seven, a group of Adepts whom serve under Nova.

She was voiced by Ayano.



In her youthful life, she was bullied in her school because of her Septima, and commonly played video games as an escape from reality. At some point, a certain someone sent her an email and gave her the ability to use her septima in the game, she caught the attention of Merak. she was captured and taken prisoner by the Sumergai Group, trying to uncover Elise’s Rebirth Septima. As Elise was too weak to work with them, they inserted a obedient side to her, allowing her to obey. 

However, this unleashed a beast-like, insane state of her. This side would have slaughtered them if not sealed with hyponosis. Despite this, the dominant side of her killed the scientists and turned them into members of the undead.

Official Description

Elise is an Adept who is currently being held prisoner by the Sumeragi Group. Her Septimal power, known as "Rebirth," gives her the ability to manipulate the soul, and return life to those who once lost it. Sumeragi failed to bring her immense septimal power under control, which in one incident, triggered a rampage that decimated the research facility where she was being held. This was caused by implanting her brain with a more aggressive persona to replace her original weak-willed self, which resulted in a split-personality that can manifest itself in the real world, unlike Lumen, which is only a virtual avatar. The Glaive which holds her septimal power is known as the "Living Blade.
