Esty Dee is a recurring support character in the Arland trilogy series. She first appeared in Atelier Rorona: The Alchemist of Arland as a supporting character, and later became a playable character in Atelier Meruru: The Apprentice of Arland. She also appears in Nelke & the Legendary Alchemists: Ateliers of the New World.
Esty is first introduced in Atelier Rorona as the hard working Adventurer's Guild receptionist. She is a very kind and helpful person who aids Rorona in her journey by giving her requests which will boost her reputation with the city. She is friends with Sterk and seems to be quite loyal to the king.
As the series progresses, Esty becomes increasingly unhappy about her loss of youth and lack of a husband. During the events of Atelier Totori, Filly has taken over Esty's job and now works as the receptionist. Filly explains that her older sister was concerned about getting too old to find a husband, and so she is supposedly out in search of a man and is not seen in the game.
In Atelier Meruru, she has seemingly given up her search for a husband, and is focusing on her career. She seems somewhat resigned to having chosen a career over marriage, but is clearly unhappy about it. When she drinks, Esty often reminisces about her age. She watches closely over her sister Filly and worries about her sister's lack of skill with people. When she learns about the Potion of Youth, she is very determined to have some.
She is not a playable character and does not have her own game ending in the original Atelier Rorona. In New Atelier Rorona, Esty is available as a playable party member. When she goes gathering ingredients together with Rorona, her clothing changes. She wields two short swords as her weapons.
Esty disappeared during the events of Atelier Totori, but arrives in Arls with Gio during the first year of the game, after completing the first task at Hart Outpost and upgrading it once. Her role has changed signifigantly, taking up espionage as a job, as well as being the bodyguard of Gio.
Nelke and the Legendary Alchemists Edit
Esty appears as a resident of Westwald after the Arland alchemists join the cast. She can be assigned to operate a store.

- Esty's localized name can be read as STD (sexually transmitted disease) which is most likely a localization joke made by NIS America.
- In the manual for the Atelier Arland DX collection she was renamed Etsy Airhart, which is closer to her Japanese name. This appears to be a translation error as the following Atelier release Nelke and the Legendary Alchemists she again appears with the name Etsy Dee.
