Prince of Gotha
|Dragon Quest V|
|Age||8 (after second timeshift)|

In English his default name is Parry. In Japanese his default names are Cooper (クーパー) on the SNES and Rex (レックス) on the DS. In the CD Theater audio drama and official novelizations, his name is Timmy (ティミー) .
Appearance and Personality
Parry's hair color is inherited from his mother and can be blond, blue, or jet black, though his eyes will always be blue. He dresses in a light blue tunic that reaches his ankles, a darker blue cape that drags behind him, and wears grey colored bracelets and boots. On his back is a comically over-sized sword he has yet to grow into.
Being a young lad, Parry sees the world through a child's eyes and is delighted by every new experience he encounters, though he does admit that the title of Hero feels awkward to him at times. His resolve to save the world never slackens, however, and he understands the full severity of the world's circumstances. In his own words, as long as he has his family he can do anything.
Equipment, Stats, and Abilities
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.
Parry is an outstanding multi-purpose character and his list of spells is the best in the game with offensive, healing, revival, and support magic for nearly every situation. Though his overall MP is low compared to his family and his strength growth rate is slower than his father's, he will nevertheless be a vital asset in every battle.

- Parry unfortunately suffers from Nocturnal Enuresis--more commonly known as bed wetting. Most children grow out of this condition by age 7, with cases in older individuals being most often attributed to stress. Considering Parry's circumstances, this is understandable.
- 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.
- Parry's hair style is the same as Son Gohan in his super saiyan form. Akira Toriyama was in the middle of drawing the Cell saga of his Dragon Ball manga when V was developed and released, and likely used the cameo as a hint towards the lad's capability.
