Yuri Alpha (ユリ・アルファ, Yuri・α) is the vice-captain of the "Pleiades Six Stars", the battle maid squad of the Great Tomb of Nazarick. She was created by Yamaiko, one of the three female members of Ainz Ooal Gown.
Yuri Alpha is a beauty with an intelligent look, wearing glasses and a wide blue necklace. She wears her hair tied into a low-cropped bun at the back of her head. Lacking a metal plate in front of her skirt, her dress emphasizes mobility rather than defense. She is equipped with spiked gauntlets.
As shown in her Karma value, Yuri is good-hearted and one of the two "safe" Pleiades to humans. Thus, she felt relieved when Ainz said not to kill humans without proper reasons. When given permission to do as she pleases, Yuri chooses to help people in destitution. She uses "boku (ボク)" as a first person pronoun when speaking in private, revealing a somewhat childish nature.
Her behavior is strict and is like that of a teacher's. She is workaholic, unable to relax with the thought of free time. Due to her personality, she often works as a chairperson. Interestingly her status as an undead makes her very cold and calculating, however, her alignment and mental imprint of her creator, allows her to enjoy short bouts of emotional outbursts, but these emotions are quickly repressed similar to Ainz's emotions.
Yuri Alpha was created by Yamaiko as one of the battle maids, the Pleiades. They served as the last line of defense against intruders. However, because they were unlikely able to stand against enemy players who managed to come this far, their only real purpose was to buy time for the guild members to prepare for their final stand in the throne room.
