The Princess of Moonbrooke is a character in the Dragon Quest series that appears as a playable party member in Dragon Quest II.

She is a descendant of Erdrick who inherited none of her ancestor's physical strength but makes up for it with her magical prowess.

After Hargon attacks Moonbrooke, the Princess of Moonbrooke is cursed and 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 her subjects and her father.

Appearance and Personality[edit]

She is depicted as shorter than her cousins, by how much depending on the illustration. 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 the forehead, carrying what looks to be a Wizard's staff in the Japanese version of the game. Her eye color changes between lavender, red, and blue, as well. 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 Lightning staff. 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.


Dragon Quest II: Luminaries of the Legendary Line[edit]

The Princess is first seen in the opening cutscene, and is encountered in person in Moonaham. Unable to communicate with her cousins due to her curse, she follows them around as a party member anyway as head's up to new players that the dog is more than it seems. After getting hints from the townsfolk of Moonaham, the two princes find the Ra's Mirror in a swamp east of the ruins of Moonbrooke. Returning to the village, the mirror is used on the Princess and she is restored.

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 SFC, GBC, and iOS/Android versions of the game mitigate this slightly by improving the attack scores on the wands she can equip.

Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies[edit]

On May 27, 2011, the Princess of Moonbrooke began appearing as a special guest under the name of Princess Princessa at the Quester's Rest in Stornway. This could be downloaded through the DQVC using Nintendo's Wi-Fi channel when it was still available. When spoken to, she will give the Hero different pieces of her outfit is certain conditions are fulfilled.

The player will receive the Accolade Moonbrooke Maiden if the Hero wears all of the parts of the Prince of Moonbrooke's costume.

Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age[edit]

The princess is found in the Moonaham section of the Echo Chamber, where in she has returned to human form at the cost of the citizens becoming dogs themselves. Distraught, she requests aid from the Luminary and seeks a jug of Magic water to undo the curse. After being given the phial and returning history to normal, she laments her fate and awaits the arrival of her cousins. Humorously, she is greatly taken aback at how common magic water is in the Luminary's world compared to her own, which is likely a developer joke at how mundane magical items have become in recent games in the series.

Dragon Quest of the Stars[edit]

The Princess is a playable ally who encounters Cyril during the the II scenario quest. She first appears in her cursed form and is illustrated with blonde hair, but has lavender hair in her polygon model.

Her outfit and staff is available as a drop in most Dragon Quest II missions.

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 spell-casting 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.
