Purrcival is a character from Dragon Quest Tact.
Purrcival is a tigrecub who trains to be a samurai under Goresby-Purrvis. Purrvis rescued him after he was separated from his parents and now thinks of Purrcival as his own child. Purrvis is who gave the little tigercub his name.
Purrcival has the appearance of a standard Tigercub, being the juvenile form of a Striking sabrecat with some anthropomorphic features. He is dressed in the fashion of a samurai in imitation of his adoptive father, wearing a dark grey kimono, purple trousers decorated with pink cherry blossoms, and a white headband with a yellow flower around his forehead. On his left side, he carries a short samurai blade in a scabbard.
Purrcival appears as an A-rank monster of the Beast family as part of the limited "Spring Training! Train with Lt Goresby-Purrvis" event, and was introduced in the game alongside Lt Goresby-Purrvis and Cherreevil Blossom. Purrcival will join the party after finishing the third stage of the event. He can be fully awakened from every fifth floor of the Great Cherry Tree starting from the 5th floor until the 25th, which each level increasing in difficulty but having a higher chance of recruitment. Purrcival also stars in his own Battle Road.
Purrcival's English name is a play on the knight Percival, who was one of King Arthur's legendary Knights of the Round Table, and the word "purr". Percival was first mentioned by the French author Chrétien de Troyes and he was known as the original hero in the quest for the Holy Grail, but he was later replaced in English and French literature by his fellow knight Galahad.
