Fiona is a young girl who made her debut in the 2017 PC version of Dead or Alive Xtreme 3, entitled Dead or Alive Xtreme Venus Vacation during the September 27, 2018 update in the DMM version, and the January 14, 2020 update in the Steam version.
Dead or Alive Xtreme Venus VacationEdit
Details about her early life are unclear, although she mentioned that the day prior to her journey to the Venus Islands, she held an anniversary party for her parents and invited multiple people to come near the lake to celebrate, and that another time, during her pet dog's birthday, they went to watch the opera and go to dinner. She is also known to have had a butler and a maid.
At some point, she learned of the Owner's existence through undisclosed means and grew to have a deep love for him. Eventually, she could no longer hold it in and abruptly left the castle to head to the Venus Islands, hoping to meet the Owner in person, although not before making sure she informed her butler about her decision, with her family supporting her journey.
Upon arriving at her destination, she encountered the Owner and enthusiastically introduced herself, admitting her admiration of him. However, because she was violating his personal space, she backed up and then proceeded to give a more formal introduction, and gave her official reason for wanting to join the Venus Festival as wanting to train to become the perfect bride.
Fiona has purple eyes and long purple hair. She also wears a purple dress that's reminiscent of a fairy tale princess, and places particular emphasis on her cleavage. She also has a purple mantle with a sapphire heart at the center and wore princess heels and silk stockings, alongside a silk garter with a fancy chain. Aside from that, she also had a kimono and a two-piece bikini, all colored with her favorite color of wisteria. One of her swimwear, Serenade, was largely similar to her regular swimwear, only primarily colored white with white frilly sleeves near the mantle as well as a ruby heart at the center (presumably in order to resemble a wedding dress). Her skin has a fairly pale complexion compared to the other girls.
Fiona is very deeply lovestruck with the Owner, to the extent that she went to the island solely to be closer to the owner. She repeatedly alluded to having a castle near a lake, and at one point implied that she spent enough time within its walls that she was surprised at how vast the world outside its walls was. She also has a very romantic aspect to her personality as, aside from her being deeply in love with the Owner, she also formulated the Dancing Party of Love, and was known to vow to do things "by the power of love". She also inferred that her love of dancing regardless of her actual skill level, as well as her more romantic view on things was derived from a story she had been told. Owing to her more sheltered background as a princess, she is at times shown to be very naïve, as during a date with the owner, she mistook a black-tailed gull with a cat. Presumably due to her title of Princess and background, she tended to refer to her peers, including the Owner and several of the other females, by honorifics such as "-sama", although in Ayane's case, she made her quit using the term regarding her.
Fiona is a name of Gaelic/Scottish origin which means "fair."
Honoka alongside Nyotengu helped Fiona do the final touches of the dancing party. She also proceeded to dance with Fiona, albeit in a more flustered manner due to her being experienced with Bon Dances, yet only having second hand knowledge from school about folk dances. Fiona also ended up complimenting Honoka for picking up pace, and becoming even more impressed when she learned that Honoka copied her dance moves when improving, though she was slightly saddened largely due to her own failure to dance well. However, after Honoka admitted that all the girls are "partners" of the owner, Fiona ended up flustered, believing that meant all the girls were potential candidates for marriage, and vowed to work even harder to become the Owner's bride. In addition, Honoka not only helped cheer Fiona on regarding rock climbing and building her strength for the festival, but also helped Fiona out by doing a demonstration on how to rock climb.
Marie Rose was implied to be jealous of Fiona initially due to the attention Helena gave her. Additionally, in the Japanese version, Marie's annoyance at being compared to a child is implied to be the reason Fiona refers to her as Marie-san. However, the two have also worked together a number of times. Fiona also indicated that Marie Rose taught her waitering during the former's birthday party. Fiona and Marie Rose also had to work together to find a means to distribute a massive and unexpected surplus of Valentine's Day chocolates (while also wearing cupid-inspired outfits due to a dream that the Owner had), ultimately deciding to settle on a chocolate-themed party. Marie Rose also acted as a bit of a mentor to Fiona regarding a pajama party before Kanna came in.
Fiona and Misaki interacted with each other during the Love Dance Party that acted as the former's welcoming party, with Fiona taking the lead largely because Misaki was unfamiliar with dancing. Misaki apologized for Fiona having to take the lead, although Fiona admitted that she was glad they even danced at all. Misaki also was shocked that Fiona was in fact a princess when admitting that she came across like one in looks, and was even more surprised that Fiona came to the island specifically to meet the boss. She then offered to give her the nickname of "Feenie" (Fio-chan in the Japanese version), which Fiona accepted.
The two later worked together to find ingredients for medication to help the Owner out of a recent bout of insomnia, with Fiona in particular helping out Misaki finding Sea Urchin-like plant ingredients as well as how to make the medication.
Hitomi alongside Kokoro helped Fiona set up the dancing party. She also provided some advice to her about how to dance. Fiona also appreciated the advice for the most part, even if not quite satisfied. However, the two ended up baffled after she implied that she and the Owner were engaged, causing her to cover herself and claim it was a greeting her butler taught her to say. In addition, when learning of the nature of Hitomi's training regiment from Honoka and Luna regarding building her strength (specifically, that she fights bears), she not only is shocked to learn this, but also briefly becomes despondent, thinking she'll never reach her level or, indeed, even be able to train her strength for the Venus Festival. Hitomi, alongside Momiji, also gave Fiona some pointers regarding cooking on her birthday.
She met Ayane near the pool and requested that the latter advise her on how to manage her beauty for the Venus Festival, even calling her master, much to Ayane's annoyance. She was also familiar with Ayane during the Dancing Party of Love, but never got a chance to interact with her (Ayane not being the social type). When undergoing training, Ayane made her swear not to address her as "Mistress Ayane" ("Ayane-sama" in the Japanese version), although Fiona had some difficulty trying to keep to that end of the bargain.
Fiona also worked alongside Ayane to test out a new type of body soap, although Ayane was implied to be slightly annoyed by her presence, comparing her to Luna at one point, with Fiona's admittance that she had watched Ayane sleeping to observe the soap's effects not helping matters. Ayane, when reconvening with Kasumi later on after the latter similarly worked alongside Luna to test out the body soap, also referenced her difficult time with Fiona.
Kokoro alongside Hitomi helped Fiona set up the dancing party, as well as offering her some advice about dance techniques. However, the two ended up baffled after she implied that she and the Owner were engaged, causing her to cover herself and claim it was a greeting her butler taught her to say. In addition, Kokoro also alongside Ayane helped out Fiona regarding the beauty spa, and implied that she largely sympathized with her escape from the castle to get to the island due to having pulled something similar on her own mother. Kokoro also taught Fiona some Japanese dances during the latter's birthday.
Helena alongside Marie Rose helped Fiona set up the dancing party, with Helena complimenting her as an adorable princess, to Fiona's bashfulness and Marie's jealousy. Helena also was somewhat bemused that there were "two cute princesses" (referring to Fiona and Marie Rose befriending each other). They also worked together for the Two Prima event, with Fiona even requesting that Helena sing a duet with her upon learning that she was a former Opera star. She did, however, end up briefly taken aback by Fiona's suggestion that they do a duet and even privately remark that she was a bit of a "troubled princess", although she nonetheless was somewhat amused by her boldness. Helena also apparently gave Fiona some more singing lessons on her birthday, which is implied to be return payment for Fiona's own involvement in helping set up Helena's own birthday party earlier.
She got along well with Luna, with the latter also aided her alongside Honoka during the strength training sessions. In fact, she alongside Honoka wore cheer outfits specifically to cheer her on regarding her training to give her support, with Luna in particular, prior to Fiona giving a second try on rock climbing, giving her some advice on how to pursue the challenge and not let it overwhelm her. Fiona in turn returned the favor later on by helping Luna with pool hopping, even supplying her with an appetizer outfit to allow Luna to maintain balance on top of the platforms, using prior experience with Tamaki.
Although Fiona and Tamaki have only interacted in Spring Appetizer Selection, it's implied that Fiona was at least aware of Tamaki's more infamous reputation, as she expressed shock that Tamaki was in her room. Tamaki checked up on her when hearing her cry out (due to Fiona falling off the bed in a failed attempt at practicing dance lessons). Tamaki then offered to supply her with a means to practice dancing, which she had marginally better success at, especially after Tamaki grabbed her to ensure she stayed still long enough to avoid falling into the water when Fiona panicked.
She became acquainted with Nagisa when the latter had to do rock climbing as part of her initiation at the Venus Islands. She acted as her support member, and encouraged her to climb, like Honoka and Luna did for her beforehand. She also speculated that, despite Nagisa's denials, even she had some romantic feelings for the Owner, even thinking Nagisa's insult of "Wanko" towards the Owner was a cute petname due to her fondness for her own pet dog John.
Fiona, alongside her friend Marie Rose, met Kanna during a pajama party event, with Kanna also talking the girls into wearing somewhat revealing lingerie. She took slight issue at Fiona calling it "cute", as she wanted to appear sexy. She also had some ice-breaking chats with Kanna alongside Marie Rose, with the oni admitting Fiona was "bold" for going to the island on her own initiative due to her love for the owner. Fiona and Kanna later worked together on a school-related event, with Fiona helping Kanna out regarding the academic aspects of education, while Kanna in turn helped Fiona out with physical education, with both being implied to have never actually had a formal public education before then. However, Kanna insisted that Fiona refer to her as Kanna Senior. The two later stayed up in the hopes of meeting Santa. She also attempted to get Kanna to believe Santa existed (as the latter did not believe in him due to never being granted gifts by him in her entire life). This eventually resulted in them inadvertently spoiling the Owner's attempt at gift giving due to mistaking the latter for Santa.
The two met during a pajama party and quickly got along well with each other. Monica gave Fiona some advice on how to open herself up to the Owner more regarding romance. Fiona in turn relayed a message from the Owner to Monica regarding meeting with her the next night for drinks.
As indicated above, she is deeply in love with the owner, with him being the main reason why she went over to the island, and having fallen in love for him at first sight. Her immense respect for the owner is especially evident in the Japanese version with her referring to him by the honorific "-sama" in front of his name. At one point, when dancing with the Owner, she almost gives him a kiss, only to end up flustered from the action.
Dead or Alive seriesEdit
- Dead or Alive Xtreme: Venus Vacation (playable, 2018; DLC character)
- Fiona is the fifth female character to be first introduced via the Xtreme series.
- In the DMM version, she was the fourth girl introduced, while Nagisa was the fifth. In the Steam version, it was technically the opposite due to Nagisa debuting early as the "Mystery Venus". Largely because of this, the Christmas arc's beginning episode's reference to Fiona was cut in the Steam version. She still retained her status as the fourth girl introduced overall.
- According to the girl order in the game code, Fiona is identified as "FON".
- According to her self-introduction episode, she dislikes carrots, and she also owned a dog by the name of "John", who was implied in one of her event episodes to be her only friend before arriving on the Venus Islands. She also admits that, despite ballroom dancing being her hobby, she is not good at it.
- As of her debut, Fiona is the oldest 18-year-old character in the series.
- As noted by Kokoro in the event episode "The Mind is Soft", Fiona's method of arriving at the Venus Islands was similar to how Kokoro arrived at New Zack Island in Dead or Alive Xtreme 2.
- Fiona is one of only two characters to miss out on the Dead or Alive Xtreme Venus Vacation x Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu collaboration (the only other being Leifang).
- She is also the only one of the characters to be excluded from the First Anniversary outfits as well as the Xmas 2018 outfits, presumably due to her being recently included (though she was allowed two character-exclusive episodes for the latter event, and eventually got both SSR alongside Nagisa, Kanna, and Monica.).
- In the Xmas 2018 event's standard episode for the DMM version, Misaki indicated that Fiona was going to miss the Christmas party due to going on a week-long cruise scheduled around the same time prior to the Owner revealing that the expenses incurred from the First Anniversary event forced him to cancel the party. Despite this, however, Fiona was still allowed to appear in two character-centric episodes like the other characters as noted above.
- Fiona is one of only three characters in Xtreme Venus Vacation thus far whose nationality is left unknown, the only others being Luna and Monica, as Misaki, Nagisa, Tamaki, and Kanna are strongly implied to be Japanese from their names being written in Hiragana and in the case of Kanna being a Japanese Oni.
- Coincidentally, both Fiona and Luna beat out two characters who at that time were of an age limit (as Fiona beat out Honoka as being the oldest eighteen year old girl, and Luna beat out Ayane as being the youngest girl in the series).
- On April 1, 2019, Fiona got a new SSR that depicted her with bandages, greyed skin, and red irises in a similar manner to a zombie. This was most likely a reference to her voice actress, Kaede Hondo's role in the Zombie Land Saga anime. Upon it crossing over to April 2, 2019, all traces of the event barring zombie poses are removed, with a Twitter message popping up where Misaki tells the Owner that he merely had a dream.
- In the Japanese version, Fiona always speaks using formal Japanese known as keigo (敬語). Fiona attaches the honorific "sama" (様) to the Owner, and to a certain extent Ayane and some of the other girls. The English version largely retains this trait by having her use more formal turns of phrases and more eloquent expressions.
- According to Sakuta D in Famitsu's 2nd anniversary coverage for Dead or Alive Xtreme Venus Vacation, Fiona had been created in order to emphasize the concept of "Owner Love", and also so she could stand out in terms of relationship status compared to the other girls.
- On the same section, concept art for her indicated that her Noble Tutu SSR outfit was originally going to be slightly more elaborate, including opera-gloves, a connected mantle to the corset portion of her swimwear, her hips being slightly exposed, and her pantierres being longer and more ruffled, as well as having an extension near the posterior. She also apparently was meant to have a hairbow on the back.
