Altrouge Brunestud (アルトルージュ・ブリュンスタッド, Arutorūju Buryunsutaddo?), also known as Vampire Princess of the Dead Apostles (死徒における吸血姫, Shito ni Okeru Kyūketsu Hime?) and the Eclipse Princess of Black Blood (黒血の月蝕姫, Kokketsu no Gesshoku Hime?), is the ninth of The Twenty-seven Dead Apostle Ancestors.[1][2]


Appearance Edit

She is described as looking to be around 14 years of age.[1]


Born as a hybrid of Dead Apostle and True Ancestor, Altrouge was the first True Ancestor ever to hold the title of Brunestud, so she could be called Arcueid Brunestud's older sister.[1][3][4] She was born from Crimson Moon's machinations in searching out other methods for preparing a body of proper purity for his revival due to no regular True Ancestor coming to possess his level of power.[5] Despite being a possible successor to Crimson Moon, Merem Solomon and Gransurg Blackmore, Crimson Moon's servants, only held the later born Arcueid as their master, considering Altrouge to be an imposter who must be killed.[2] Once Michael Roa Valdamjong stole power from Arcueid and became a Dead Apostle Ancestor, Altrouge decided to put him in his place, but was instead defeated herself.[6] She at one point fought Arcueid and stole her long hair during the battle.[7] Van-Fem came to hold a grudge against her faction due to Fina-blood Svelten's actions.[8] She formed a contract with Zepia Eltnam Oberon to turn him into the phenomenon TATARI.[9] Along with at least six other Ancestors, she planned to attend the Aylesbury Valesti ritual.[2]She is the owner of Primate Murder.


Altrouge has yet to appear directly in any works.

Other AppearancesEdit

She is mentioned in an off-hand, joking manner as being a possible heroine for a potential Tsukihime 2.[10]

Within the Crimson Moon dream scenario in Kagetsu Tohya, Michael Roa Valdamjong and Arcueid's Crimson Moon personality talk about Crimson Moon's manner of revival, mentioning Altrouge briefly.[1]

She was mentioned in Prelude when both Merem Solomon and Gransurg Blackmore make it clear they both wish to kill her. Planning to attend the Aylesbury Valesti, Merem wishes to destroy her for taking away Arcueid's hair, and he is glad Blackmore will be there so as to be able to destroy her for sure.[2]

In Melty Blood, Arcueid temporarily ends Altrouge's contract with TATARI, but it is only temporary for the duration of her Marble Phantasm. Shiki Tohno and Sion Eltnam Atlasia take the chance to kill him and end his existence as a phenomenon.[9]


Altrouge is a powerful Dead Apostle who holds more influence over the Dead Apostle Ancestors than the supposed representative, Trhvmn Ortenrosse, putting the two at odds. She is the owner of Primate Murder and her personal bodyguards include Rizo-Waal Strout and Fina-blood Svelten.[8] Merem Solomon believes the most he can accomplish against her faction is to kill one of her bodyguards while sacrificing himself, but believes working with Gransurg Blackmore can allow for them to be fully defeated.[2] As one of the Dead Apostle Ancestors ranked in the top ten, she is a being of illusion who cannot be destroyed by ordinary concepts, requiring an illusion surpassing her to compete against her.[11] Normally appearing like a young fourteen-year-old girl, she is normally powerless and cannot make use of Marble Phantasm, but "like a magical girl" is said to have something like a two-stage transformation.[1]

Although prepared as a potential vessel for Crimson Moon who has obtained the Brunestud name, she has yet to reach a proper level as to succeed him. With Primate Murder under her control, it can be said she even surpasses his power in a way. Michael Roa Valdamjong comments that she is too unstable for Crimson Moon to possess even despite that.[5] Called the Master of Blood and Contract (血と契約の支配者, Chi to Keiyaku no Shihaisha?), she allowed the Dead Apostle Ancestor Zepia Eltnam Oberon to become the phenomenon TATARI. Through the power of the Crimson Moon, the contract was made so that Zepia could find his answer to obtaining the Sixth. The stipulation was that if he could not obtain his answer, Wallachia, after a predetermined cycle, would again witness the Crimson Moon after one thousand years and return to being Zepia. It is possible for Arcueid to interrupt the contract by manifesting the Crimson Moon from one thousand years in the future with Marble Phantasm, but it is only temporary.[9]
