Celestria (セレシア Serushia?, (Celesia)) is a character in Dragon Quest IX. She is the daughter of the Almighty One, Zenus. Her role is that of a Christ-like figure to the people of the Protectorate. She assists the hero in reaching the final dungeon in the story.
Celestria plays a Christ-like role in the story because she protects the mortals from her father Zenus' wrath. She completes the overall biblical motif of the Celestrians being angels who are working for her and her father. Celestria chooses to temporarily sacrifice herself in order to save the mortals. This directly parallels Jesus Christ dying on the cross to save mortal men from hell.
