Wormwood Creek

From Dragon Quest Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Wormwood Creek is a town in Dragon Quest IX. It is a location of key importance in the plot relating to Serena and Corvus. Unless the hero arrive here along the storyline, all stores here (except the inn) will not serve any outsiders, including the hero. This is probably a protection setting to prevent the player obtaining better equipment too early, since the town is reachable from Porth Llaffan after the ship is acquired.

History[edit]

  • This place used to be called Wyrmward Creek. The natives were supposed to be wardens of a great hero. But over the years, the people forgot their purpose and the village name got changed. The great hero was named Greygnarl, who rode a mighty dragon into combat against an evil dragon in the fiercest of battles. The Hero of the Heavens, as he was also known, lived with his followers atop the Magmaroo, a volcano to the west of the village.
  • A saying in the town says "When he who seeks the way to Upover appears, open the gates of Wormwood with the light guarded by the sentry statue. " is a hint about how one should get pass the Wormwood Canyon.
  • The stone tablets in the east wing if church says, "This stone stands in place of the abomination that brought disaster on our village. Trust outsiders at your peril. Fellowship starts and ends at home. "

Trivia[edit]

  • The town was name "Wyrmward Creek", which are similar to the names of the nearby regions "Wyrmneck", "Wyrmwing", "Wyrmsmaw" and "Wyrmtail".
  • Wormwood is a term used in the bible to describe a star which falls to earth and poisons the water supply. This description parallels the effect Corvus has on the town as a Celestrian.
