Profile Dormouse



Manga Debut
Fujiwara Keiji

The Dormouse (眠りネズミ, Nemuri nezumi) is a character of the manga series Are You Alice?. He was an old friend of the Mad Hatter and he serves as Wonderland's informant, and due to a contract with the White Rabbit, he could give any information he has to whoever is named Alice.  It's possible he's the one who found out about how to exit Wonderland, since he held the most information about how to leave.


It's unknown how the Dormouse came to Wonderland, but it's assumed he wished to crush his world like the other characters.  At some point, he signed a contract with the White Rabbit expanding his rules, allowing him to gather any information he liked and give it to Alice and the Mad Hatter.  The Mad Hatter became close friends with the Dormouse and, at some point, gave him a gun to protect himself and his very own tea pot.

When the Mad Hatter stopped his time, the Dormouse spoke to him about it, expressing care about it.


The Dormouse has short, spiky, dirty gray hair with a small portion of his bangs lying down on his forehead and has a shaved beard. Underneath his brown jacket and black scarf with white stripes, encircled around the collar of his jacket, he wears a white sleeveless shirt. He wears a pair of black trousers and a pair of elf-like shoes.


The Dormouse is a lazy man who believes in taking the cautious route


  • The Dormouse from Alice in Wonderland is a tranquil creature, sleeping during the tea party while the Mad Hatter and March Hare party along and use it as an armrest.  A real British dormouse looks like a squirrel more than a mouse, and it's possible that the drawings in the book used a wombat owned by a friend of Carroll as a model.  The Dormouse, in the story, was mostly asleep during the mad tea party and only rarely woke up, and when it did it was only slightly conscious.  At the very end of the chapter, as Alice leaves the tea party, she can see the Dormouse being shoved into a tea-pot.


  • "Tell him, 'as usual, your timing is terrible.' "
  • "I have to get rid of these feelings so I can sleep better, huh?"
  • "Sorry. I'm a pretty cautious guy."
  • "The only way to break your appointed rule... Is to sign a contract with the White Rabbit."
