Also known as Ramia from Dragon Quest III, Empyrea is referred to as the Godbird. She has the power to travel between worlds. The seven sages crafted the Godbird sceptre under her instruction. When Rhapthorne attempted to open the gate between the World of Light and the World of Darkness in Dragon Quest VIII, Empyrea used all her power to seal the gate, losing her ability. Her shadow in the World of Light creates a portal to the World of Darkness called the "Dark Eye".


Empyrea's first encounter with the party was when they traveled to the World of Darkness in search for her advice. There they discovered that her egg was stolen by a monster called Gemon, and thus she has been forced to attack the nearby village of Empycchu.

The party agreed to infiltrate the Godbird's Eyrie where the egg was being kept hostage, but during the battle to recover it, Gemon sacrificed himself to destroy the egg. Empyrea's child, who died before birth, appeared as a spirit before the party and decided to aid in their quest. Her child gave them the Godbird's soulstone and with it bestowed on them the power to fly through the skies, allowing them to reach places of their world inaccessible by land or sea.

Empyrea plays a major role in the game's final battle. Not only does she recover the Godbird sceptre, allowing the party to invoke the power of the seven sages' spirits to break the barrier protecting Rhapthorne, but she also carries them on her back throughout the entire fight.
