Incarose (インカローズ Inkaroozu?) is a major antagonist in Tales of Hearts. She is an extraordinarily powerful Queen-type mechanoid who excels in will artes and serves under the command of Creed Graphite.


The Manipulative Witch[]

Incarose is a mysterious sorceress who is first seen chasing Kohaku and Hisui Hearts at the start of the story. A servant of Creed, she acts as his mechanical guardian and was named by him after the color of her eyes, which Creed himself complimented as beautiful upon first seeing her. Being an experimental Queen-type mechanoid, Incarose is linked through seven separate bodies through a single artificial Spiria. At the start of the story, only four bodies are still operational, as Incarose later admits that three have been rendered inoperable due to centuries of combat.

After Kor Meteor finds Kohaku on the beach in Seaville and takes her to his mother's grave to retrieve her Soma, Incarose appears and attacks the duo, but they are saved by Kor's grandfather, Sydan Meteor, who receives a fatal blow from Incarose and dies later back in Seaville. Incarose is later seen orchestrating the events in Straga that intensify the friction between the imperial army and the Church of Valentin. Cunning and lethal, she fends off the protagonists at every turn and frequently teleports away once she considers her job done.

The group is eventually forced to fight Incarose on the flying airship Mysticete, where she ambushes their escape but yields to them in combat. She appears again at Guz Spa, retrieving will wisps for Creed, but an onslaught by Chalcedony Akerman and his Crystal Knight companions, Peridot Harmotome and Pyrox Ferro, defeats one of her mechanoid bodies. Shortly thereafter, when the group visits Mount Va'mell, the remaining three of Incarose's bodies attacks the isolated Crystal Knight trio, killing Peridot and Pyrox in the process. Chalcedony manages to kill two bodies, with the remaining one escaping.

The Queen of Creed[]

When the group returns to Mysticete, Incarose taunts Chalcedony by playing a recording of Peridot and Pyrox's deaths, which prompts Chalcedony to strike her, causing her to lose an eye. Furious, Incarose unleashes a powerful will arte that sends the group falling back to land. She is seen again at Beanstalk Tower on Minera, following the Ace mechanoid brothers Chlorseraph and Clinoseraph, who seek to upgrade themselves. Inside, Clinoseraph asks Incarose to reveal herself, seeing through her cloaking.

In a sudden turn of events and clash for access to upgrading themselves, Clinoseraph kills Chlorseraph, and Incarose fights with Clinoseraph, the end result leaving them both seemingly inoperable. When the group finds the three bodies, Kunzite notes that there does not appear to be any activity from any of them. However, Incarose survives and upgrades herself using components of the seraph brothers, confronting the group at the top of the tower as Incarose Alt (インカローズ・ILL?, "Incarose ILL"). She grabs Lithia and uses her to initiate the warp. Being bested in combat yet again, Incarose rants on how she is defeated by inferior Somatics, and Kor answers it is because she is alone, that she has closed her Spiria from anyone else. To prove that connections only make an individual weak, Incarose throws Lithia Spodumene off the tower's top platform, and Kor jumps after her.

Despite Incarose's attempts to rid of the rest of the group through self-destruction, however, the seraph brothers manage to regain some control and place her in a will arte to initiate the warp instead. The group leaps off the edge of the tower, using Chalcedony's upgraded Soma to fly. Meanwhile, Incarose is shown at the top of the tower alone, now completely blind while her body continues to malfunction. She mutters to herself, albeit seemingly speaking to Creed, about how he found her eyes beautiful, but that she can see no more and everything is dark.

Appearance and Personality[]

Incarose has red eyes and white hair. As a Mechanoid, Incarose's body is entirely mechanical, having a black leotard covering her torso (minus her breasts) and shoulders, and a layer of pale skin for her face and above her thighs. She also wears a dark red head piece with a small horn on each side, and a pink gem in the middle.

As Incarose Alt, the skin covering the left side of her body and the right side of her face, have been torn off. Incarose removes her left limbs and replaces them with that of what remained of the seraph brothers. Her leg now has Chlorseraph's thigh and Clinoseraph's shin. She also has Chlorseraph's arm above Clinoseraph's. The front parts of both brothers' head pieces are now used to cover Incarose's right eye, and the sclera on her left eye is more pinkish.

Incarose refuses to accept anyone's right as living beings, viewing everyone except Creed as nothing more than "moths".

Fighting Style[]

Incarose's Soma is uniquely designed, like a dark red cape with two arms behind her, one in front, and one on each side. The side arms each have a single pink core at the end.

In combat, Incarose will run as if keeping her body parallel to the ground, making her incredibly fast.

In the original Hearts, Incarose's attacks mostly use other parts of her body, such as extending her arms to grab her opponents and toss them aside, thrusting out spikes from her hips, a back cartwheel kick, or getting on all fours and pulling out a claw that swipes downward. Attacks using her Soma include conjuring a pink barrier in front of her, or five lasers spread out like a shotgun blast. Incarose's arteset in this game consists exclusively of will artes. However in Tales of Hearts R, this changes to having two strike artes per form, as well as a handful of will artes.

In Hearts R, her normal attacks are more centered around her Soma, using it to slam into the ground, jumping forward and using it to form a gem that she then uses as a battering ram, jumping into the air and performing a dive attack, or conjuring a black of Dark energy around her body. The back cartwheel kick from the original game also makes a return.

As Incarose Alt, the cores of her Soma now occupy the left side of her chest. She steals Chlorseraph's elbow blade and Clinoseraph's shield as well as the former's speed and the latter's power, and combines the three to perform devastating attacks. She uses her cores to cast Will Artes, or fire a pair of lasers, the latter hot enough to overheat her, leaving her open. In Hearts R, the laser attack becomes her strike arte Tainted Laser.


  • Incarose's name is based on Inca Rose, a term sometimes used to describe the mineral rhodochrosite.
    • Interestingly, her name on the Japanese side used to be romanized as "Incarros," as seen in official guidebooks, but Tales of the Rays promotional material used "Incarose" instead.
