Milly (Mireille in the original Japanese, Milayou in the localization of DQM) is a main character in Dragon Quest VI and its prequel Dragon Quest Monsters.
Appearance and Personality
Milly dresses in a blue overcoat with white pants and blouse, and a breastplate from which her yellow streamers extend. Her accessories include a tiara with matching necklace, two silver wristbands, and two plain torcs on her upper arms. Milly is repeatedly described by a wide variety of NPC's as being very beautiful and elegant, traits that have caused her great hardship in the past.
Ever polite and compassionate, Milly keeps a calming, almost motherly air about herself that belies her young age. Though no true facade, this outer personality masks the scars of a harsh childhood, and hides a deeply rooted sense of longing to be close to others. It's because of the somber past that Milly possesses an indomitable sense of courage, as evidenced by her volunteering to assist in the attack on Murdaw's Keep at the beginning of the game.
This is not to say that the young woman is perpetually serious, however; party chant and scripted cut-scenes reveal a sprightliness rivaling Ashlynn's, with Milly often succumbing to bouts of laughter and beaming smiles. Her Lucky Dip antics further reveal a strong interest in dancing, as well as dabbling in amateur fortune telling.

- In the Super Famicom version, while Milly travels with The Hero and Carver to Lucid Grotto to retrieve the Dream dew, she remained entirely inactive until the they became solid through use of the dew.
