Parry was born with his twin sister in the castle town of Gotha shortly before his father was crowned king. However, their mother Bianca/Nera/Debora was abducted by monsters and their father went missing searching for her. Eight years later, he along with his sister and Sancho finally located their petrified father and restored him to life. With him recuperated, the twins journeyed with their father in search of their missing mother.

As it turns out, Parry was the legendary hero that his grandfather Pankraz was searching for years ago - he simply had not been born yet. Thus, he was the only one able to wear the legendary Zenithian Equipment. After rescuing their mother in Crocodilopolis, he traveled with his father, mother, and sister into the underworld of Nadiria in search of his grandmother, Madalena.

Equipment, Stats, and Abilities[edit]

Parry can equip certain swords, boomerangs, axes, and staffs, and even the metal king equipment. However, being the legendary hero, he is able to wear the whole Zenithian set, each which provides powerful protection.

Like his father, he is a very versatile fighter. He also is very good in magic, though his spell selection differs greatly - in particular, he can use the Zap line of spells.

  • Interestingly, the blue hair inherited from Nera makes him resemble the Hero of Dragon Quest VI.
  • His full name in the CD drama and novels in Japanese is ティムアル・エル・ケル・グランバニア - Timal El Kel Granvania. Granvania is the Japanese name for Gotha.
