The Princess of Moonbrooke (also Pudding or Princessa) is a character in Dragon Quest II. She is a descendant of Erdrick who inherited none of her ancestor's physical strength but makes up for that with her magical prowess

After Hargon attacks Moonbrooke, the Princess of Moonbrooke is turned into a dog. Later, after her cousins, the Prince of Midenhall and the Prince of Cannock break the curse, she joins forces with them to exact revenge on Hargon for what he did to Moonbrooke and her father.

Appearance and Personality[edit]

She is depicted as shorter than her cousins, the Prince of Midenhall and the Prince of Cannock. She alternates between having blonde and lavender hair, and is clothed in a white robe and purple or red hood with Erdrick's crest on them, carrying what looks to be a Wizard's Wand in the Japanese version of the game. In the American illustrations for the NES version of the game she is tall, blond, and wears a pink and black robe, knee-high black boots, red cape and holds the Staff of Thunder. When cursed by Hargon, she took the form of a brown dog.

The princess comes across as a shy but strong willed girl, who wants revenge on Hargon for what was done to her father and home. When encountered in various spin-offs and cameo appearances in later games, the princess is a jubilant and perky young woman prone to fits of laughter. Humorously, she sometimes barks when she becomes angry in said cameos, such as Fortune Street.

Precedence for Later Titles[edit]

The fair princess introduces several firsts to the Dragon Quest series, such as being the first heroine to join the protagonist, the series' original dedicated sage-like character, and the first to endure the destruction of their family and home. Such a melancholy fate would become the series' standard, with only a scant few lead characters avoiding the trend.

Equipment[edit]

The Princess of Moonbrooke is the most limited in terms of equipment compared to her cousins, being only able to equip light clothing and magical staves and wands. She cannot use any shields. She joins the party equipped only with plain clothes and a cypress stick and does not have much in the way of physical attacks and defense. The SNES, GBC, and iOS/Android versions of the game mitigate this slightly by improving the attack scores on the wands she can equip.

Names[edit]

  • Her name and stats are determined by the name the player chooses for the Hero. The Princess' name is selected from a list of eight names. They are Varia, Elani, Ollisa, Roz, Kailin, Peta, Illyth, and Gwen. In the GBC version, her possible names are: Erin, Mary, Nana, Beth, Fran, Gwen, Lynn, and Sara. Her name can be changed manually by putting in a code at the title screen.
  • The Japanese options for her name are Eileen, Akina, Samantha, Nana, Pudding, Maiko, Maria, and Linda.
  • The official Japanese CD theater drama calls her Nana, from her default names. The novel switches things up by calling her Seria, a name not found in the game.
  • In the Wii game Fortune Street, her name is Princessa or Pudding. In Dragon Quest IX, her name is Princessa. In the Mobile version, her name can be chosen at the beginning of the game.
