Arche is a young woman in her adolescence with petite build, short bob cut blonde hair with straight bangs and blue eye. She possessed an elegant beauty and delicate, doll-like features.
Arche was a genius young girl amongst the magic casters in the imperial magic academy. On the other hand, she would actually be more of a silent hard worker than just being a talented person. She was almost close to fully reaching the limits of her growth potential.
Arche was born to the noble Furt family of the Baharuth Empire. After discovering her potential in magic, she enrolled to the Imperial Magic Academy to further her studies as a magic caster and was praised as a genius for she has learned spells a tier higher than rest of her peers. Furthermore, she possesses a innate talent similar to the Imperial Court Wizard and the academy’s headmaster, Fluder Paradyne. Both of said attributes eventually reached Fluder’s attention and earned her place as his apprentice. Her life, however, changes following the ascension of Emperor Jircniv to the throne. Her family is among many whose noble status has been stripped away after deeming themselves incompetent in the young emperor’s eyes. Even so, because they refuse to accept their new reality, her parents repeatedly borrow money to continue the lavish lifestyle as if they were still nobles and they fell into debt, much to Arche’s frustration and disgust. Thus, she hated her parents and wished to run away from home with her younger twin sisters.
Following the emperor’s purge, she left the academy, much to Fluder’s disappointment, and was forced to become a worker, desperately taking up job after job to repay her family's debt. It was then she joined Foresight, a worker group led by Hekkeran Termite to take on more co-op missions, eventuality proving herself to be an important member of the group.

Arche and Roberdyck Goltron returned and met up with Hekkeran Termite and Imina. Hekkeran asked about the moneylender to Arche. She confessed that her family was in debt due to the extravagance of her parents' spending habits. Considering Arche's circumstances, though they deny that they are worried about her, Foresight decided to accept the quest from Count Femel to investigate the large tomb. Arche later returned home and scolded her father for wasting money as if they were still nobles. She then went to see her younger twin sisters and decided to get away from home and take her sisters with her when she finished the quest.
Arche and her companions soon arrived and discovered a huge amount of treasure in the four affiliated tombs. She and her companions would venture deeper into the underground tomb, and as they expected, more treasures along the way. However, they were then teleported to the 6th Floor's Colosseum and ended up meeting Ainz Ooal Gown and other Floor Guardians. Desperately, Hekkeran tried to deceive him, but Ainz saw through his lies and fought them as a warrior. Later, Ainz decided to reveal his true power. This turn of event caused the terrified Arche to vomit, not only once, but twice, after witnessing the overwhelming presence Ainz actually had. Knowing that they're outmatched against Ainz, Arche's comrades told her to escape as they would stall him for her.
Arche tried to run away until finally realizing that she's still underground. Mentally cornered and falling into absolute despair, she was caught by Shalltear Bloodfallen. In her final moments, all Arche could think of was her twin sisters whom she dearly loved and fainted from mental shock. Soon afterwards, Shalltear killed her while she was still unconscious. Afterward, her corpse was harvested for resources: Entoma took her voice, Demiurge her skin, several undead her limbs, a Silk Hat Demon her head, and the leftovers became food.
Maruyama stated on his website that, after Arche failed to return, her parents sold both her sisters into slavery to start paying off their debts. There, the two eventually died from overwork. Overall, entering Nazarick despite the warning signs was only Arche's second mistake. Her first one was not taking her sisters and fleeing from her family sooner, especially since the Imperial Magic Academy would've likely taken her back without any fee due to her talent.

Sir Furt & Madame Furt
Arche, unlike her parents, does not think highly of her lineage after losing her nobility status. In a way, because of that, she was able to easily adapt to their new status as commoners after they were removed from their position and high status during the Blood Emperor's purges. She hated her parents very much, who were unable to accept the reality that they were heavily in debt. While they would continue to live in a prodigal lifestyle by spending money recklessly, which constantly puts the family into financial trouble every single day, she went out of her way to clear up or even reduce their debt as a worker. She was disgusted with how they resorted to borrowing money from shady, possibly criminal places without her considerations. Based on these circumstances, Arche was forced to become a more driven person in life over the course of time, due to now being the main provider for her family and set her sight's on earning enough. With that kind of mindset, Arche thinks hopefully that there will be a day where she will be able to repay the debt collector and remove their financial troubles once and for all. However despite her constant reminders to her father and mother to accept reality and move on and their complete obliviousness to her sacrifices and efforts to keep them feed and taken care, Arche has now resolved herself to leave them completely once she pays of their debt and move away from them together wit her younger siblings.

After many of her pleas repeatedly fall to deaf ears, she was planning to take her sisters with her live elsewhere, away from her parents and their debt.
