He also appears in Atelier Marie, Elie & Anis: Message on the Gentle Breeze.  

Role[]

Atelier Marie[]

Drnie is the headmaster of the Salburg Academy. His skills in alchemy are the best in the entire kingdom, although it may not seem like it with his age.

He came to Salburg from El Bador long ago alongside Ingrid, Hermina and Lilie. Because he is from El Bador, his irises are two different colors. He has a love of alchemy and watches over his students carefully.

In the winter of the first year, Marie may run into Drnie when she visits the academy. If she pursues him, Drnie will disappear into a secret room in the library. By discovering this secret room, Marie will gain access to many high level spell books that are only available to read by visiting this secret room.

If the player does not follow Drnie during their first encounter, the secret room will become unavailable. 

Atelier Elie[]

Drnie is still working as the headmaster of the Salburg Academy.

Eventually rumors of that a ghost of an old man haunts the academy's library start to spread. If the player investigates the rumor and the library, Elie will discover Drnie's new secret study. In exchange for not revealing the room's location to others, Elie is allowed to come visit and read the valuable books there.

Atelier Lilie[]

Drnie has a much more substantial role in Atelier Lilie; he is Lilie's direct mentor figure and is trying to establish the academy seen in "later" titles. As such, he can be constantly found in the atelier. He, Lilie, Ingrid, and Hermina share and play a major role in the plot.

If the player chooses to mentor Ingrid, he will mentor Hermina, and vice versa. He remains unplayable, however. Lilie can obtain recipe books from him for her alchemy.

Atelier Marie, Elie & Anis[]

Drnie is still headmaster at the beginning of the game. He supervises Anis with Ingrid's help in writing alchemy books. Instead of her books being given the Salburg library, they are sent back to her home country instead.[3]

At the end of the game, Drnie retires as headmaster and gives the academy to either Ingrid or Hermina.[4]
