In the Games

Mega Man X5

Alia debuted as a supporting character in Mega Man X5, first contacting X or Zero as they arrive in the Opening Stage. If the player chose X, she explains that she restored the Fourth Armor for him to use, naming it so in the process. She then serves as a tutorial, explaining the new Crouch and Wire Hook abilities (she does the same in the game's optional Training mode).

Once Sigma puts his plans into motion, coating the Earth with the Sigma Virus and sending Eurasia on a crash-course, Alia is present for the meeting where Signas declares their plans to get Enigma and the space shuttle back online. She then continues to navigate the Hunters through each of the eight stages, occasionally interrupting gameplay to inform the player of upcoming stage elements or obstacles.

Alia briefly appears in X's good ending, alerting X of a large Maverick outbreak in HORIE 2146 block. She also appears in the bad ending, doubting the "miracle" of X coming back without any memories of Zero. She declares the truth a mystery.

Mega Man X6

In Mega Man X6, Alia is first seen when she awakens X from a dream to go stop the Mavericks at the Eurasia crash site. She contacts X in the Opening Stage, explaining that she has incompletely repaired the Falcon Armor for him to use. As X encounters the Zero Nightmare and High Max, Alia expresses confusion and concern.

Alia mentions her mysterious past at several points in the game, due to the main antagonist, Gate, being a former colleague of hers. A secret cutscene unlocked by collecting 3000 Nightmare Souls has her reveal the full story. Before working in the Maverick Hunters, Alia worked with Gate in a Reploid engineering laboratory. When their supervisor became wary of Gate's highly-advanced Reploids and refusal to cooperate, the supervisor began plotting with the team to dispose of his creations. Alia was reluctantly roped into this conspiracy: she was tricked into casting Blizzard Wolfang to a watery grave, and was forced to execute Ground Scaravich for trespassing. After Gate left the team, Alia was wracked with guilt, and eventually joined the Maverick Hunters.

In the cutscene after unlocking Secret Lab 1, Alia briefly speaks to Gate as he contacts Hunter Base; she attempts to reason with him, but he brushes her off. At the end of the game, she is present outside the laboratory to find X carrying Gate's broken body, leaving her the choice of what to do. Afterwards, she promises to help rebuild the world into a utopia and hopes to find a way to end all computer viruses.

Developer Commentary

"Was there a strong request for females from the staff of the previous work? This is the first time I've introduced a female character to the X series. Personally, I don't feel it's all that necessary since these are titles aimed at young boys. But really, aren't women more capable of making calm decisions? So I decided the navigator would be a woman. Alia's design was difficult too. Regrettably, I made many mistakes, with her often looking more like a 'Mega Man Legends' denizen before fitting her into the X world." - (Developer Comments)[1]
"A pretty common question I hear is, 'Who is the heroine of the X series, Iris or Alia?' Personally, I think Alia takes on more of a 'big sister' role, since she does spend most of the game navigating the player around. On the other hand, Iris cold be the heroine of the series, but she dies in 'X4', so..." - (Haruki Suetsugu)[2]
"In 'X6', we get to see a bit of Alia's past. We put her hair down to give the sense that the scene is from the past... but then she shows up in 'X8' with her hair down, so... (laugh)" - (Haruki Suetsugu)[2]
"Pallette is one of those absentminded types, so I focused on pastel colors for her. Layer has more of a divine air about her, so I went with the rich and royal purple. As far as Alia is concerned, she brought sex appeal to a man's world, but by changing her hairstyle in 'X8', I was trying to add some cuteness to her character." - (Tatsuya Yoshikawa)[2]
