The fault series is an episodic Visual Novel series created by ALICE IN DISSONANCE that has sold over 480,000 copies worldwide. The series is known among fans for being a great introduction to Visual Novels because of its tightly packed length, lack of adult content, story structure and presentation that is heavily influenced by cinema and beautiful artwork. The Nintendo Switch version has a brand new opening theme, soundtrack, and updated character sprites compared to the current Steam version which was already updated in earlier 2018.

fault is a series of Science Fantasy Cinematic Novels using a unique 3D Camera system for a visually immersive reading experience, which follow the story of a princess named Selphine and her Royal Guardian Ritona. When a sudden assault devastates their homeland of Rughzenhaide, the two are forced to escape… but somehow end up teleported into an unknown forest full of vegetation they don’t recognize. The atmosphere is thick and heavy. There is no sign of life, which is very unusual for such a lush forest. Something is wrong about the land… But they are too startled to notice what.

Who were the attackers and what was their goal?
Where did Selphine and Ritona end up?
Will the two make it home safely?
And more importantly, what has happened to their homeland?

Follow Selphine, the bubbly, happy-go-lucky Princess and her sharp-witted but slightly misanthropic Royal Guardian Ritona, on their journey of a lifetime back to their homeland of Rughzenhaide.

Selphine Rughzenhaide

Our energetic, active princess with a still-green personality sharply contrasting her steadfast heart. Through a kravte called Path-Down, the memories and experiences of eight prior generations of rulers lie dormant within her.

Her sense of justice is twice as strong as any other, leading her to hotheadedly rush headlong into things whenever it calls her to action on a frequent basis.
She gives the impression of a resourceful young woman, but in fact still has much to learn about being a leader.

Selphine looks up to her guardian Ritona as one would an older sister, though her nosy behavior easily ignites Ritona’s temper.
She also absolutely loves eating good food.

Ritona Reighnvhasta

With an outstanding aptitude for battlekravte,
she serves as Selphine's Guardian.
Having gained her position before turning 20, her abilities can cause her problems, and she can end up condescending at times.
Far from popular, she has very few good friends.
Logical, cool, calm, and collected, she may look to be the shrewd type, but has a delicate heart as well.

Ritona comes from a family who has long served the royal family for generations as their Guardians, spending much time with Selphine since they were young. One big factor in why she became Selphine's Royal Guardian is her absolute trust in her.

She uses swords and barriers made of a glass in battle.

GUEST CHARACTERS

Rune/Sara

A bright, peppy girl, she accompanies Selphine and Ritona from Kadia City after gaining an interest in them.
When she first meets the two, she introduces herself as Rune, but quickly corrects herself, calling herself Sara. From Ritona's observation, despite her animated self, Rune/Sara has no signs of life or presence.
She also has a lot of strange contradictions in what she says and does, and often acts rather unnaturally.

Rudo Zhevitz

A young man with an intimidating glare, he is the executive of a large company in Kadia City.

Albas Folster

A gentleman with a kind demeanor.
He seems to know more Rune/Sara than the average bear...?

Hertzwann

A friendly mood maker and a star of the bar. He can be found in Kadia's tavern when he's off duty from the apparel shop which his father owns.

Melano

The leader of the raiders that attacked Rughzenhaide. Has a particularly calm manner of speech. Her teammates both look up to her, and fear her as well.

Mharie

One of the raiders that attacked Rughzenhaide. Though she looks to be around 12 or 13 years old, the truth is not known. She speaks very slowly, as if trying to find the right words as she talks. Though she refers to Melano like an older sister, it isn't confirmed whether they actually are sisters. Of the other three members, Mharie is the only one who doesn't seem to be afraid of Melano.

Koko

One of the raiders that attacked Rughzenhaide.
Of the members, she is particularly young.
Served as the vanguard of the assault, arriving first at Rughzenhaide's Sky Terrace first.
Based on her behavior, she tends to act cocky and overconfident. Hates it when she is treated like a child.

Sian

One of the raiders that attacked Rughzenhaide. Cool and cynical, she makes no effort to hide the fact that she is a slacker. During the attack, she served as the rear guard, making sure no reinforcements made it. Her teammates refer to her as Sian -- she seems to be trusted by them, but as for why remains a mystery.

リトナ=ラインヴァスタ

バトルクラフターとして非凡な才能を持つセルフィーネ姫のガーディアン。

10代という若さでその職に就いたが、突出した才能が災いし、
気付かぬうちに他人を見下してしまうことも。
人気者と呼ばれるにはほど遠く、友人も決して多くはない。

論理的で冷静沈着。
抜け目がないように見えるが、繊細な心も持ち合わせている。

代々王族のガーディアンとして仕えてきた家系でもあり、
セルフィーネ姫とは幼い頃から共に過ごしてきた。
リトナがロイヤルガーディアンになった理由の1つは、
セルフィーネからの絶対的な信頼も大きく影響している。

戦闘では硝子で作った剣や防壁を駆使して戦う。

セルフィーネ=ルゼンハイド

元気いっぱい、育ち盛りだけれど芯はしっかりしているお姫様。
「パスダウン」と呼ばれる王族のみが使えるクラフトによって、
彼女には王族8世代分の経験と記憶が眠っている。

正義感と好奇心が人一倍強く、一度興味を持つと
前後の見境がなくなることも少なくない。

臨機応変で一見しっかりしているように見えるが、
まだまだリーダーとしては発展途上。
セルフィーネのガーディアンであるリトナを実の姉のように慕っており、
ちょっかいを出して怒られることもしばしば。

美味しい食べ物が大好き。
