Schia Donnerstag is a main supporting character in Atelier Marie: The Alchemist of Salburg and its remake Atelier Marie Remake: The Alchemist of Salburg. She also appears as a character in Atelier Elie: The Alchemist of Salburg 2, Marie & Elie: Two People's Atelier and Atelier Marie, Elie & Anis: Message on the Gentle Breeze.

Schia is the childhood friend of Marie and born as the only daughter to a rich family. She is a gentle and caring person, and is always concerned about the well being of others. She is extremely close to Marie, and always offers to lend a helping hand.  Schia is kind and supportive, but she is also in very poor health.

She strives to refine her behavior and become more lady-like, especially after her marriage to a distinguished businessman. However, she never seems to fully lose her sharp tongue and easygoing personality.


Atelier Marie[]

Schia's family were originally from Granville, but she moved to Salburg after her parent's job forced them to be relocated. Her family became wealthy after several years of hard work once coming to Salburg. Despite having a high stature, Schia treats all individuals equally, and is an incredibly mature person. 

She is one of the first party member the player can recruit, although she is extremely weak, and she is also free to hire at any time in the game. Schia will make visits to the workshop frequently to check on Marie's progress. She will give Marie a variety of requests each time that she visits, and will also ask Marie if she'd like to accompany her to many events. 

When Schia falls deathly ill, it will be up to Marie to create an Elixir to cure her. If Schia is not cured, she will not die, but it will greatly compromise the game's ending as well as many events within the game. Many events will not take place during the time that Schia is sick and she cannot join your party. After her recovery, she will visit the workshop to say she's feeling better and reward Marie with the Elemental Teardrop.[2] Marie will gain a hefty 100 points to reputation for curing Schia.[3]

Atelier Elie[]

6 years after the events of Atelier Marie, Schia's family has rose to multimillionaire status. Schia found a talent for textiles and has new found success with her talents. Her family has become a topic of discussion around Salburg.

Schia is now ready to be wed, and it is arranged that she will marry a rich businessman from another city. She meets Elie for the first time after she visits the workshop. Schia was looking for Marie, but wishes Elie luck with her alchemy all the same. Eventually, an event in the game will occur that shows Schia's wedding and her offering the flower bouquet to Marie (who however refuses it). 

If the player hires Marie and brings her back to Salburg, Elie may catch Schia and Marie stargazing like they once did in Atelier Marie, reminiscing about the old days. 

Marie & Elie: Two People's Atelier[]

Schia only appears in events, but is important as she teaches Marie and Elie alchemy recipes.

After some time she'll announce to Marie that she is returning to Granville Village for some time. At least 240 days later she'll visit the workshop again with her newborn daughter[4], who she names after her best friend Marlone.

Atelier Marie, Elie & Anis[]

Schia is staying in touch with both Marie and Elie, visiting and bringing sweets with her to their workshop. She lends her aid by providing inspiration for one of the food item recipes.

She only appears in events and cannot be found in the city. Schia also doesn't appear in any of the endings, but one of the paintings from the art vendor shows her holding a baby.
