La Bravoure

From Dragon Quest Wiki

La Bravoure (formerly Mezar) is a village located on an island in the southeastern part of the world in Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past. It is unlocked after the party saves Alltrades Abbey in the past.


The people of La Bravoure are descendants of the Holy Order of the Almighty who fought alongside the Almighty against the Demon King long ago. After He was defeated by the Demon King, he knocked the Sacred Stone from the floating shrine they lived on, knocking it out of the sky and landing on the island. The people of the Divine Shrine founded a town afterwards and La Bravoure was born. The remnant of the shrine can be found to the east of the town in the form of an abandoned shrine, which is only accessible through flight.

Long before the party arrives, Honoré's father, a descendant of the Holy Order, had a Flying Carpet that could that was capable of flight. Before his death, he makes Honoré promise that he never leave the town. His father feared that he would go looking for the Legendary Hero of which he had learned about. Honoré promises this. In order to make sure that he keeps his promise, his father has his maid Colette give Honoré a fake magic carpet while she hides the real one in a secret location.

Though Honoré promised to stay in La Bravoure, it didn't stop him from trying to give the carpet to other travelers to find the Legendary Hero in his place. He petitions adventurers who pass through La Bravoure to find the Legendary Hero. To facilitate with this quest, he gives them the fake flying carpet, not knowing that Colette had switch it with a fake one long ago.


The party travels to La Bravoure. When they enter the bar, they find Honoré arguing with a man. Honoré wishes to find the Legendary Hero. However, the man tells him that there is no reason to find the Legendary Hero because the world is at peace. Honoré storms out of the bar in frustration. The party speaks to the barkeeper and inquire why Honoré doesn't simply go looking for the legendary Hero himself. She informs them about the promise Honoré made to his father before his death.

The party visits him at his house. He acknowledges them as adventurers and wishes them to follow him. He leads them into a basement storeroom where he gives them the fake carpet. He tells them to look for the Legendary Hero. However, when the party uses the carpet, they realize that it doesn't fly.

They return to Honoré with the carpet. He tells the party that he didn't mean to deceive the party but the carpet hasn't worked for anyone who used it. He runs away from his house in frustration. Colette tells the party about his father's promise and what she did with the real Magic Carpet. She tells them that she'll give the party the real flying carpet if they show her the Mermaid Moon. After saving the town of Wetlock from Gracos, the party receives the Mermaid Moon and shows it to Colette. She takes them to a secret storeroom hidden behind the town church, where the real Flying Carpet is stashed away. With the carpet in their possession, they are able to visit the shrine
