Weapon & Attacks
Arisu (有栖?) - Arisu comes from A (有?) meaning "possession", combined with Risu (栖?) meaning "habitat", "to roost" or "to dwell". So Arisu could mean "dwelling possession". However, Risu, written as 栗鼠 means "squirrel" in Japanese, which may be an obvious reference to her animal motif. Also, "Arisu" is the Japanese variant of the English name "Alice".
Kurisu (クリス?) - Kurisu is the Japanese way of pronouncing the English unisex name "Chris". Chris can come from Christina and can mean "a Christian". However, this meaning may have nothing to do with the character Kurisu. However, Kurisu, could be a reference to both of her motives; Kuri, written as 栗, means "chestnut", and risu means "squirrel" in Japanese.
