The Epipany is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series, being introduced in Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past. It is a tiny faerie priest.

Characteristics[edit]

These tiny blue neophytes are doing their best imitation of a human cleric, complete with a silver religious symbol in their left hand, vestments made out of blue leaves, an acorn miter on top of their head which covers their eyes, and a pendant of a symbol worn around their neck. They are able to support their other pips by casting Heal on their wounds. Epipanies even try their hand at casting Omniheal, but always fall short due to their lack of MP and fall over. In remake versions of the game, the shape of the cross that the epipany carries was changed to closer resemble a trident.

Etymology[edit]

The epipany, along with its companions, are named after the mythological Korpokkur, a diminutive race of people in the folklore of the Ainu people of northern Japan. They were once said to live in harmony with the Ainu and would bring them deer, fish, and other goods, but after a schism, they disappeared. In fantastical depictions of the Korpokkurs, they are small enough to live underneath the leaves of the giant butterbur plant and would use its leaves as roofs and umbrellas.
