Elice is the daughter of Cornelius and Liza and the older sister of Marth. When the Dolhr Empire attacks Altea, she chooses to stay with the Altean people and sends Marth and later Malledus away so that they can survive. Ultimately, she is captured by Gharnef, who wants to use her to gain access to the Aum Staff. After Gharnef is finally defeated, Marth frees her and she joins the Altean army. During the fall of Altea in Mystery of the Emblem, Elice offers herself to the Archanea Empire as a hostage so that Caeda can escape and reunite with Marth. She is eventually taken by Gharnef and almost sacrificed to resurrect Medeus as a Dark Dragon (alongside Lena, Maria, and Nyna). However, she is returned to her own self by Merric, who has romantic feelings for her. In the ending, she moves to Pales with Merric.
