Aletheia is a name of android spirits in the Otherfaith. The Aletheia line is based off the first Aletheia android, said to be modeled after Arabella. Each android in the line is red-haired and gold-eyed, with an adjustable skin tone. Each android is allowed to vary their hairstyle within certain parameters, keeping the line recognizable for who they are. Aletheia androids have their number written in the hollow of their collarbone.
Some Aletheias are divine, being shards of the Laetha, while others are semi-divine or simply regular spirits. Each produced and numbered Aletheia has their own specific quirks, differentiating them from the original 'blank' Aletheia.
Odile is their sister android line, with one Alice being created for each Aletheia produced.
The Aletheia line is numbered 000 though 099. Aletheias 000-005 are considered 'true' AI, as their consciousness was purely created by the Clarene and her programming. Aletheias 006-onward have their consciousness based on other spirits who have been transferred 'in; to the Aletheia body.
Aletheia were first created by the Clarene in an attempt to bring back Arabella. She used her knowledge of robotics and programming and one of the sparks from Arabella to bring Aletheia to life. the Ophelia warns of the problems in creating an AI like Aletheia, and in an attempt to rectify the imbalance in the Aletheia line the Odile line of androids is created cooperatively by the Ophelia and Clarene.
Aletheias were used to rescue Arabella from her virtual prison that Mircea trapped her in. They also assisted Pallis in defeating Mircea. These Aletheias are seen as being 'battle damaged', both physically and mentally.
Created by the Clarene to rescue Arabella from the virtual prison she becomes stuck in. Notable for being built without a mouth, intended to be strictly a fighting machine.

Used by the Clarene as an experiment. She requests that the Aletheia hook up to the Dierne and drawn upon the Dierne's knowledge of the universe and its creation. A002 overloads and is terminated by the Dierne before she causes an explosion of celestial energies. One of the divine Aletheias.
