High Priestess Jacqueline (formerly known as Fosse or Foz) is a character that the party encounters in the Alltrades Abbey region in Dragon Quest VII. She also appeared in Dragon Quest Monsters: Caravan Heart.

History[edit]

Jacqueline is a young girl with exceptional talent. Her abilities allowed her to become the High Priestess of Alltrades Abbey. The Demon King understood the importance of the temple because of its potential to create a Hero. The Demon Lord sent Cardinal Sin to take over the Abbey. He commanded monsters and overtook Alltrades Abbey. Many of the Alltrades Abbey guards were killed. Jacqueline was captured by the monsters and imprisoned in the Dungeon of Descent, encased in a pyramidal energy field, powered by two magical conductors.

Synopsis[edit]

The party, with Eustace and Fingers, enter and go left into the prison. They find High Priestess Jacqueline encased in a pyramidal energy field, powered by two magical conductors. Physical strength isn't enough to break the barrier. However, the party disables it by destroying the conductors. It is at this time that Rashers and Stripes enter the room. Noticing that Jacqueline is free, the monsters start to attack the party. Fingers remarks that it would be impossible to defeat the duo with the stolen power they had. Jacqueline uses her power to take away the stolen powers of Rasher and Stripes, making them weaker. The party is finally able to defeat the duo.

The party takes Jacqueline out of the cave while Eustace and Fingers go on ahead to tell everyone about Jacqueline's rescue. When they do, all of the priests in Precipice Pass crowd her, amazed that she is alive. Jacqueline gives the party the Alltrades key in order to progress further into Abbey's underground.

The party goes on to fight the High Priest who stole their powers in the beginning. Before they reach the actual Abbey, Jacqueline arrives, escorted by two Abbey Guards. She tells the party that she has to defeat the impostor High Priest. Otherwise, it would impugn her honor. Jacqueline joins the party and the four of them go to challenge the impostor.

They arrive to see another warrior talking with Cardinal Sin. The warrior demands his freedom, stating that he had won the tournament. Cardinal Sin agrees that he had won the tournament but reveals that it was all of the sake of strengthening the Demon Lord and himself. He burns the warrior to a crisp until there is nothing left. The party goes up to challenge Cardinal Sin. With Jacqueline's help, the party finally defeat him and liberate Alltrades Abbey.

The party speak to Jacqueline and she thanks them for helping free Alltrades Abbey. She realizes that she must help bolster the defense of Alltrades so that another incident like this doesn't happen. She allows the party to change classes should they choose to do so. With that, the quest in Alltrades Abbey is completed.

Trivia[edit]

  • Ruff appears to have a precocious crush on her, as he laments the fact that Jacqueline is not the person who performs vocational changes at Alltrades Abbey in the present.
  • In the 3DS version, the Sage's outfits appear to be based on Jacqueline's outfit, particularly Maribel's, who wears an outfit almost identical to hers.
