"Alice and I, we are going places."

Alice Angel is a cartoon character created by Joey Drew Studios in Bendy and the Ink Machine. Similar to her counterparts, Bendy and Boris, Alice starred in a series of cartoons thirty years prior to the events of the game.

Alice made her first appearance in the "Sent From Above" poster from Chapter 2, and there are several environments dedicated to her from Chapter 3 like plush toys and even cutouts. She was voiced by actress Susie Campbell then was later replaced by Allison Pendle.

Background

Description

Alice is a female humanoid cartoon character with slightly wavy shoulder-length black hair, thin eyebrows, and black lipstick. She wears a black 1920's flapper dress with a short skirt and a white bowtie that is identical to Bendy's is around her bust line. Like the other characters, Alice has pie-styled eyes with a single eyelash each, and a small mole under her right eye. She has slightly short arms wearing a pair of white gloves over black detached sleeves, with circles in the palms. Her legs have a pair of short stockings or black garter belts. Alice wore a pair of black flats, seen from her appearance in the game's 1st anniversary image.

Alice has a combination of angelic and demonic traits, with a pair of horns as well as a halo floating above her head. From her cutout, she is also shown to stand on a cloud.

Personality

Suggested by the "SHE SINGS! SHE DANCES!" tagline from Alice's "Sent From Above" poster, Alice has a talent of dancing and singing. Heard from her "I'm Alice Angel" song of Chapter 3, she is revealed to be sweet and happy-go-lucky, as her angelic nature would imply, unlike her physical self "Alice".

Appearances

Chapter 2: The Old Song

Alice is first revealed in a poster on the wall, located to the right of the music department hall. Entitled "Sent From Above", it also features Bendy, hiding beneath the title.

In the recording studio, an audio log from Susie Campbell can be found, claiming that the staff really enjoy her voicing talent for Alice. She claims that she feels a connection with Alice unlike the other characters,[1] and mentions that Sammy thinks Alice may be as popular as Bendy someday.[2]

Chapter 3: Rise and Fall

In the Heavenly Toys department, posters, plush toys, and even some cardboard cutouts of Alice can be found throughout the chapter.

A cassette left by Shawn Flynn, however, states that Alice did not catch on popularity-wise in comparison to the studio' other creations. Alice's merchandise was apparently not selling well.

In the room dedicated to Alice before "Alice" jumpscares, several televisions turns on automatically and plays the "I'm Alice Angel" song performed by Alice Angel for a very little while.

If the player chooses the "angel path" room, it is revealed that Susie was suddenly replaced by Allison as Alice's new voice actress without being told. Desperate for a way to fix it, Susie is heartbroken.

On Level 9's inner sanctum, a giant statue of Alice holding a "SHE'S QUITE A GAL!" sign can be seen above the entrance to the flooded warehouse.

Chapter 4

Anything dedicated to Alice Angel is thought to return in Chapter 4.

Trivia

  • Alice's design appears to be inspired by Betty Boop, a cartoon creation of Fleischer Studios from a similar time period to the game. They are similar in that they act as a beautiful and cheerful female character to act as a polar opposite to the other main character of the respective studio (Betty Boop to Bimbo, Alice to Bendy).
    • Furthermore, Alice' poster tagline suggests that she dances and sings, similar to Betty Boop.
  • According to theMeatly on Twitter, Alice is "quite a girl", a hint to the tagline that would accompany her appearance in Chapter 3.[3] The tagline, "SHE'S QUITE A GAL!", held by Alice's statue in Chapter 3, is a reference to the same tweet.
    • theMeatly also stated that there is no problem "an Angel" can't fix, hinting at Alice's physical reveal in the same chapter.[4]
  • The fact that Alice has both a halo and a pair of horns, yet lacks wings, implies that she is a fallen angel, supported by the fact that the episode she stars in is titled "Sent From Above".
    • The holes in each palm of Alice's gloves are not only strikingly identical to the way Mickey's gloves looked during the 1930's (the image for example), but could also be a reference to stigmata, a term in Christian faith to describe marks or sores on the body in the same places Jesus Christ was supposedly crucified, referencing her status as an angel.
  • From theMeatly's first Q&A video, when it was questioned if Bendy and Alice are dating, theMeatly's only response was a look of seemingly shocked silence.[5]
    • The nature of Alice and Bendy's relationship is also hinted at further in an old description of her official merchandise.[6]
  • Alice's voice sounds heavenly and beautiful, according to the Hot Topic takeover by Sammy Lawrence on Twitter.[7]
  • From the question images posted by the official Bendy account on Twitter, Alice's face is seen on the left hand side while Bendy is on the right.
  • Alice is the only cartoon character who has been confirmed to talk in the show.
    • Additionally, she is the only one with a confirmed voice actor.
  • She and Boris (in the "Haunted Hijinx" cartoon only) are the only cartoon characters who have been confirmed to speak.
  • Although Alice never appear in any cartoon shorts, she only appear in the official animated 1st anniversary image with Boris and Bendy.

  • The dolls of Alice seen in the Heavenly Toys department, and one of the official images for merchandise both lack a halo.
  • Strangely, unlike Bendy's cardboard cutouts, Alice's cannot be destroyed using the axe.
  • Suggested by the "I'm Alice Angel" song performed by the actress Lauren Synger from the game's development team, it is entirely possible that Alice's singing in-game is voiced by Allison Pendle instead of Susie who was replaced unexpectedly, as Susie herself is voiced by Alanna Linayre while Allison is assumed to be voiced by Lauren.
