|Dragon Quest series character|
Monty opens shop in the second generation and is first encountered at Fortuna. He maintains Dens at Fortuna, Lodestar Harbour, Castle Gotha, and even as far as Precaria. Up to 50 monsters can be left in his care in the SNES version, and 80 in subsequent releases. While staying with him, a monster can be released or renamed.
Monty is the distant descendant of Buddy, the beast-befriending eccentric of Nottagen's past. Inspired by his ancestor, he plans to open up a park where monsters can live in peace--unfortunately, Monty doesn't actually know how to build the park. Fortunately, the party can find enclosure plans to add new areas to Monty's pet project. As Nottagen has no standing mayor or officials, Monty appears as the town representative at the summit meeting in the Cathedral of Light.
