PlotEdit

The story of Atelier Totori takes place 8 years after Atelier Rorona: The Alchemist of Arland.

The game follows a young and aspiring alchemist, Totooria Helmold. She recieved her teachings from the great Rorolina Frixell, the protagonist of the previous game.

Her mother, Gisela Helmold is a famous adventurer who stopped coming home to visit 2 years ago. As Totori grows older, she wishes to find out more about her mother's whereabouts, and this becomes the game's main objective.

Totori asks her sister if she can become an adventurer. Her sister Cecilia Helmold ("Ceci" as she's more often called), immediately says no to Totori's request, fearing that Totori will go missing just like their mother. Totori is still determined, however, and speaks to her childhood friend Gino Knab, who also wants to become an adventurer.

They speak to the carriage driver Peter who tells them that they will need 100,000 cole to travel to Arland, the home of the Adventurer's Guild. Gino and Totori decide to slay monsters and collect materials around Alanya for a month in order to raise the money. 

After a month, a discouraged Gino and Totori realize that they don't have nearly enough money to pay for the carriage trip to Arland. Seeing how serious Totori is about getting an adventurer's license, Ceci decides to give Totori permission to become an adventurer and gives her money for the trip. Now that she's been given permission, Totori and Gino travel to Arland. 

When they arrive in Arland, Gino and Totori go to get their Adventurer's Licenses. At the guild, Totori and Gino walk into an argument happening between Cordelia and Mimi. When Cordelia realizes that Totori is an alchemist, she deems her valuable, and gives her and Gino their licenses immediately. 

Ceci is worried sick by the time that Totori arrives back home to Alanya, but Totori tells Ceci the good news. Cordelia has told Totori that she will only have her license for three years before it will need to be renewed. If Totori fails to accumulate enough points on her license, then her license will be revoked. From this point on, the game's official introduction has ended, and the player will have three years to level up Totori's license.

After the third year, Totori will learn a bit about her mother's whereabouts from Cordelia who recognizes that Totori's last name is is also Helmold, just like Gisela. Cordelia gives Totori a piece of paper that Gisela had written on, which explains that she was going out to sea.

When Totori excitedly returns to her family to tell them that she may know where Gisela was going, they tragically explain that pieces of her boat were washed up on shore and she was assumed dead. Totori still refuses to believe that her mother is dead, and asks her father Guid to build her a ship. Ceci is outraged, and ignores both her father and Totori, refusing to go along with their plan. Until Ceci gives Guid and Totori permission to build the ship, the player will not be allowed to leave Alanya until Ceci agrees to go along with the plan.

Totori must gather supplies and deliver the ship parts in order for her father to build the ship. Once all of the pieces are delivered, Guid builds Totori a ship, and she is sent on her way out to sea. By heading east, Totori runs into the Flauschtraut, a giant monsterous fish that was believed to destroy Gisela's ship. Upon seeing the scar on the Flauschtraut's face, Totori believes that Gisela herself inflicted the wound and gains confidence to defeat it.

After the Flauschtraut is defeated, Totori heads to Frontier Village, the area that her mother was last heard from. Upon her arrival, the village elder Pilca is shocked that Totori has arrived. She tells Totori of the events that followed after Gisela visited Frontier Village, and Totori finds a gravestone put up by the villagers for Gisela. She returns to Alanya village to deliver the news to Ceci and Guid.

The game ends when Totori goes to get her permanent license in the 7th year. Depending on the player's actions throughout the game, they will receive different endings. The 'True Ending' of the game depicts Totori's mother coming home.

In Atelier Meruru: The Apprentice of Arland, Totori explains that her mother came suddenly home one day, so it can be assumed that her mother never actually died.

AdventuringEdit

License Rank UpEdit

Every time Totori ranks up her license, she will be given a new set of tasks that will enable her to rank up her license further. The player will need to do a variety of adventuring and synthesizing in order to achieve the appropriate rank.

If in 3 years time the player has failed to rank up Totori's license, the game will automatically end. If Totori's license is at a high enough rank, the player will be given an additional 2 years of game play.

Age DiscrepencyEdit

The North American version of Atelier Totori was released with the ages of several characters changed, which causes a change in the time between Atelier Rorona and it's sequel Atelier Totori: The Adventurer of Arland, and also changes the age of several characters in between the two versions. Their decision was eventually called a retcon , and is not considered to be an official change to the series. However, Atelier Meruru maintains the original ages of all characters, new and old.

For all intents and purposes, both ages will be listed for characters that appear in Atelier Rorona and in Atelier Totori. This is to avoid confusion for those players who are not aware of this issue.
