Please! I beg of you! Find my father! You're his only hope!
Alma is a young, red haired hyuran garlean girl. She wears a green corset dress, with white accents and a blue shawl over her shoulders. She also wears a blue necklace that was once her mothers.
Alma a girl of fifteen years is considered to be more rational than her brother and father often making the wisest choice in a situation. She is loyal to her father listening to his every wish even when he took her out of their homeland, and is quite adaptable to the sudden change.
Alma is the daughter of Garlean playwright Arazlam Durai, who goes by the stage name Jenomis cen Lexentale. Jenomis inherited the Durai Papers from his ancestor Orran Durai, who was burned at the stake for authoring them. From what little he could translate of the ancient documents, Jenomis determined that they told the tale of The Zodiac Brave Story, a Garlean legend previously thought to be just that—Legend. He also gleaned the names of two seemingly pivotal characters in the legend who had been forgotten by history, Ramza and Alma. Now convinced the legend was real, Jenomis made it his life's mission to prove it, and to this end named his children Ramza and Alma to serve as a constant reminder of his quest.
When Jenomis goes missing in the ruins of Rabanastre, Ramza and Alma seek out family friend Cid nan Garlond to aid in finding their father. Cid in turn recommends they recruit the Warrior of Light, which Alma does in spite of Ramza's objections, as he does not believe they need the aid of foreigners. He nevertheless relents when reminded that they are currently themselves foreigners in the city of Kugane, and leads the Warrior and their allies into the city while Alma stays behind. They successfully rescue Jenomis, but Alma believes her father changed by the experience, and is unnerved by his continuing obsession with the The Zodiac Brave Story.
The Hebrew word almah means "young woman", and is the root of the Spanish alma, meaning soul.
