About

Alys is the name given to a fictional blue-haired young woman considered to be the first French virtual singer ever made. Deeply influenced by the Vocaloid subculture, she made her singing debut in the summer 2014, to which she gained a decent notoriety among Vocaloid fans worldwide, inspiring fan art of her dark blue style as well as remixes of her songs.

Origins

VoxWave is a studio founded in October 2012[1] by a group of French Vocaloid fans with the purpose of creating their own French virtual singer, similar to popular Vocaloid icons such as Miku Hatsune.and her lot of spin-off characters. After about two years of development under the codename Alys, an art contest was launched on the site in early March 2014 in order to put a definite face to the French idol. The result was a young woman created by Deviant Artist Saphirya (shown below), which was officially announced on March 11th 2014[2].

The character is defined as a purple-eyed, dark blue-haired 21 years old woman wearing mostly blue attires and owning a pet cat named Lupin[3]. Using the CeVIO software as well as being voiced by French YouTube singer Poucet, she made her debut on September 19th 2014 with her first song Dans Mon Monde (shown below).

Spread

Two other songs, Avenir (shown below, left) and Pr☆messe (shown below, right) were further released in November and December 2014.

Following the character's popularity on YouTube, Several French Otaku news sites made articles about her. including Error404[7] and Adala-news[8].
An official Facebook page was also launched, accumulating over 10 000 likes[9].

Mooloid

Mooloid is a parody character that emerged during the March 2014 contest. Before revealing their official art for Alys, VoxWave teased it with a silhouette of her outlines. On March 19th, 2014, Vocaloid.fr user Acetea made a thread offering her own version of a character matching the silhouette[4], embodied in a brown-haired girl wearing a dappled black jacket and sporting various French stereotypical items, including a baguette and a beret in the colors of the French flag (shown below). Her name is also a reference to French dairy products, translated by cow patterns on the jacket and the fact she is often drawn carrying a bottle of milk.



A Tumblr compilation[5] as well as a Facebook page[6] were created soon after, as tributes to the character.
