Breeze (formerly Alyss Nightcrest, Countess of Ioae) is a Dusk Elf who has aquamarine dyed hair and is highly skilled in combat. As is elaborated later on, Breeze, along with Brio, was physically enhanced using a rune chamber. Breeze made her first appearance in 8-Bit Warrior Book 2, and she is now the secondary character. When she heard she was going to Aetheria City, she wasn't thrilled. She struck an alliance with the Lost Legion after Kolb attempted to tie up her and her friends'. Despite having revealed her true identity in WV16/8BW6, Breeze still remains a mysterious character and seems to be hiding other secrets still. It is revealed in NK?/8BK1 that she has a diary.
Alyss was born in Ioae, the Capital of the Dusk Elves. Her biological father was killed in a duel with an underlord. In Ioae, the king had requested them to learn ancient knowledge. This led to Herobrine razing her city to the ground because he saw this as a threat.
After these events, the Dusk Elves would build their city Shadowbrook, in which she grew up. This would only be a short respite, as the village was destroyed by Nethermancers under the Herobrine's service. She and Brio (otherwise known as Ezael), the two survivors, were captured and locked in a hidden dungeon for experimentation using a rune chamber and perhaps other methods as well.
As a result of this thorough modification, her physical capabilities expanded immensely. She later escaped with Brio and fled, eventually coming across Villagetown. They disguised themselves as villagers to try to fit in, using a Disguise Ⅱ Potion (of the villager variant).
Breeze is depicted as having aquamarine hair (dyed; her original hair color is unknown), along with purple eyes (from Herobrine). She is shown to have light brown skin in her villager disguise form. When she is in her normal form, she has the same hair color and purple eyes as her villager form, with some noticeable differences: lighter skin tone (pale), and her face being more slender (as described by Runt). Note that in this case, "slender" is used as a reference to being more square than villager's normally rectangular face instead of more common uses in English.
As a dusk elf, she has unusually thick hair (difficult to dye, according to the village transmogrist), nails that possess a slight iridescence in sunlight, along with eyebrows that are notably longer than a human's (although nowhere near as long as a faerie's).
When Breeze first made her appearance, she was described as shy and was said to be a stalker. However, when she revealed her actual ability to fight, she became less "creepy" since she could openly be around Runt without needing to stalk him, but continued to be shy, since she felt out of place. When Lola Became Runt's friend, she became jealous, showing that she does have a dark side. She has also shown courage, even when fighting forces equal or more powerful than herself, as with taking on Boss Urf, even though her plan could have gone wrong in many ways. Having spent time with Runt, she has even developed a sense of humor. Though she still rarely smiles, she does appear to be lightening up.
She is the only Academy trainee with what could be called a professional level of archery experience and shocks instructors when filling one-third of her quiver with grass. This is a trick that reduces the rattling sound arrows make when running or moving.
Despite her skill with a bow, she begins initial training as a Rogue and mostly attends Rogue-related courses in the Academy.
