This article is about the town, for the region see Coffinwell (region).

Coffinwell is a town in Dragon Quest IX. It is located to the northeast of Stornway within a region which shares its name. The town has many high, stone walls. It's design is similar to that of a fortress, and is shaped like a shield. The mayor's house is the highest house in the town.

The town is named for its role in the plot of Dragon Quest IX. Its residents have contracted a deadly disease which is plaguing the entire town. The sickness is related to the nearby Quarantomb.

Plot[edit]

When the player first comes to Coffinwell the inhabitants are being afflicted by a disease. The player, at the request of the Mayor, accompanies Dr. Phlegming; a local archaeologist to the nearby Quarantomb to find the source of the disease. In the Quarantomb the player finds that a Monster, the Ragin' Contagion is the cause. After the player has defeated it, Coffinwell is no longer affected. However Dr. Phlegming's wife, Catharrina died before the Contagion was destroyed. After her funeral, Catarrhina ghost will appear, and ask the player if they can help Dr. Phlegming's sadness by showing him all the people that he saved.
