From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Epipany is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series, first appearing in Dragon Quest VII. It is a tiny faerie priest.


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 golden pendant of a slime 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.

  • An epiphany is a sudden moment of lucid revelation.
  • The epipany, along with its companions, are named after the mythological Korpokkur (コロポックル), 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.
