From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Purrestidigitator is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series, first introduced in Dragon Quest VII. It is an anthropomorphic green cat wearing a blue wizard's robe.


The Purrestidigitator takes pride in its abilities to cast majorly powerful and protective magic, purring loudly in a satisfied sort of way as it slings spells with their aid of an odd and ancient staff. They can Dazzle an entire party, making them miss attacks with manic magic in their eyes, along with flinging Fuddle at foes to cause further chaos. They scorch their way through a whole party with a single Sizzle spell, dealing furious fiery magic damage.

Description No cats on a hot tin roof, these fearless, peerless, fire-loving felines enjoy frying foes with Frizzle.

They think it right and purroper that cats so comely, clever and charismatic should have such an impurressive name.
