Alisha Diphda (アリーシァ・ディフダ Arīsha Difuda?) is a main character and a female protagonist in Tales of Zestiria. She is a princess of the Hyland Kingdom, as well as its political spokesperson. Due to her mother's low status and the decreasing importance of the kingdom's monarchy, she is treated poorly by the royal family, and decides to become a knight. She serves as the introductory character, introducing the lead protagonist, Sorey, into the outside world of Glenwood during the Tales of Zestiria timeline. She becomes the lead character of the game's after story, The Strength of a Knight.

Her true name used to enact her squire pact is Melphis Amekia. As Rose's Squire, she was given the name Isylvia Amekia.



Alisha is a knight of the Hyland Kingdom and therefore wears protective armour. She has light brown hair which is tied into a curled ponytail at the side of her head and vibrant green eyes. Her attire consists of a black undershirt, black shorts, a white and pink tunic which is worn over them, a green ribbon, steel gauntlets and white gloves. The back of her tunic displays an emblem with each of her characteristics, representing her as a knight and royalty. Her armour is said to be from a hero who defeated a beast into a black orb.
