Alisaie Leveilleur is a character in Final Fantasy XIV. She and her twin brother Alphinaud Leveilleur are the grandchildren of Louisoix Leveilleur. She is a significant character in the Binding Coil of Bahamut side storyline and later in the main story.
Alisaie is a sixteen year old Elezen with white hair. She wears a large delta-shaped earring on her right ear and dark violet clothing that matches her brother's, distinguished only by a red knot in her ponytail and purple markings on her collar. Though she carries a white grimoire, Alisaie uses a magically conjured blade as her preferred weapon of choice.
Alisaie is strong-willed, cynical and, at times, emotional. She is nevertheless compassionate towards others, showing concern for a traumatized koboldling that lost his parents and leaving a bouquet of flowers in memory of her grandfather, Nael van Darnus, and Bahamut's children.
By her own admission, Alphinaud was always the more clever of the two, while she is more direct. This distinction being most pronounced when she summons an aetherial blade to attack the Warriors of Darkness, rather than summoning a carbuncle like her brother.
She also has a humorous side, often teasing Alphinaud and make cynical comments on his actions. Although this seems like petty sibling rivalry, it shows that she knows and understand Alphinaud unlike anyone else, having grown up with him.
Coming to Eorzea alongside Alphinaud, both noted by the merchant Bernhardt to not be much for conversation, Alisaie sought answers for Louisoix Leveilleur's actions. But upon reaching their destination, a ceremony for the Warriors of Light, Alisaie became livid over seeing how petty the Grand Companies of Eorzea are and argued with her brother over how its leaders are using the ceremony to rally their troops rather than make mention of the heroes. While Alphinaud becomes an active member of the Scions of the Seventh Dawn, Alisaie storms off.
Following the defeat of the Ultima Weapon and the resurrected Primals, the Adventurer is sent to meet a contact to investigate the awakening of an unknown Primal. The contact is ultimately revealed to be Alisaie, having kept tabs on the Adventurer's exploits. Determined to discover the ultimate fate of Bahamut, she requests his/her help in exploring the Binding Coil of Bahamut below Castrum Occidens. But her answers left her with more questions that include seeing Louisoix alive. Joined by Alphinaud as she reaches the Final Coil of Bahamut, Alisaie learns the truth of their grandfather's transcendence in Phoenix before the twins work together to hold Bahamut back so the Adventurer can destroy the Primal's Crystal Core.
Following that event, Alisaie began to understand her grandfather better and sought to continue his legacy of protecting Eorzea in her own way. When news reached her of Alphaniud in trouble, Alisaie sent a carriage along with Bernhardt to rescue her brother and the Adventurer from the forces of Ul'dah. As they flee, Alphinaud laments the fact that his sister is always there to save him while he should be the one protecting her.
During her travels, Alisaie learns of the Warriors of Darkness and their Primal hunts as she heads to the Twelveswood to investigate them. Discovered while spying one of the Warriors meeting with Elidibus, she attempt to flee before being rescued by Thancred. However, Alisaie ended up being poisoned by the Archer of Darkness, J'roomale, prompting Thancred to bring her to Ishgard. Before being taken for treatment, Alisaie warns the Adventurer and Alphinaud that the Warriors of Darkness are planning to allow the Ixal to summon Garuda, prompting them to travel to Xelphatol to stop them.
By the time that Alphinaud and the Adventurer return to Ishgard, having successfully stopped the Ixal and learning the Warrior of Darkness' goals, Alisaie has recovered and, after receiving a new outfit from Tataru, joins them despite acting hostile towards Urianger Augurelt. Together, they defeat Titan and investigate the Ala Mhigan Resistance before finally catching up to the Warriors of Darkness in the Bowl of Embers. Before the battle begins, she demonstrates her ability to summon a magical sword, and uses it to fight the Warriors of Darkness alongside the Adventurer, Alphinaud, Thancred, and Urianger. After the defeat of the Warriors of Darkness, she travels to The Rising Stones, the headquarters of the Scions of the Seventh Dawn, where she finally officially joins the group and approves of her brother's restructuring of the organization as a fellowship.
When the Scions decide to travel to Othard in order to help with the liberation of Doma, Alisaie chooses to go along with the Warrior of Light, Alphinaud, Tataru, and Lyse. Before departing, Urianger gives her a rapier custom made for her, so that she will no longer have to use her own aether to summon a blade.
After arriving in Kugane, Alisaie travels with The Warrior of Light and Lyse for much of their journey across Othard. In the Ruby Sea, she assists the Warrior of Light in gaining the cooperation of the Confederacy. She also receives a blessing from the Kojin which allows her to breathe underwater. After joining forces with the Doman resistance, she helps prepare for the upcoming battle to retake Doma Castle from Garlean control. During the final siege, she works alongside her brother to disable the magitek-generated shields that protect the castle.
Once Doma is successfully liberated, she returns to Eorzea and continues to assist the Eorzean Alliance and Ala Mhigan Resistance as they push toward the city of Ala Mhigo. During the battle to take Castrum Abania, Alisaie engages in combat with Fordola rem Lupis, but is injured when Fordola displays new abilities. Although the injuries are not life-threatening, they are severe enough to prevent her from participating in the final battle for Ala Mhigo, much to her chagrin.
After the defeat of Zenos yae Galvus, and the end of the Garlean occupation of Ala Mhigo, Alisaie has recovered enough to be able to celebrate the victory with the other Scions.

Alisaie appears with a fire-elemental card.
- The most distinct feature Alphinaud has from his sister, aside from the color of their ponytail and collar markings, is the color of their lips. Alisaie's are redder, being female and possibly wearing lipstick. They become far more distinctive in Final Fantasy: Heavensward once Tataru provides them with new outfits.
- Alphinaud and Alisaie's introductory appearance is only seen for new characters. This scene is cut entirely for characters returning from 1.0, who will not see them until the Carteneau memorial.
- The siblings' uncanny identical appearance is poked fun at when Alisaie was mistaken for her brother by his female admirer, during their learning years at home.
- Depends on the player's progress in the Coils of Bahamut, when talked to in Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward, Alisaie may comment on the fact. If they did not complete the Final Coils by the time of Soul Surrender story, Alisaie expresses that together they didn't find out much about the coils, avoiding spoilers for that storyline.
