Queen Ferz

From Dragon Quest Wiki

Queen Ferz is a giant purple cyclops boss, a master of hypnosis and a member of the Order of Zugzwang in Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride.

She is encountered at Crocodilopolis, posing as the Hero's mother, Madalena.


Queen Ferz is first seen when the Hero and his team begin the siege of Crocodilopolis, which happens to be near the time of its completion. She is disguised as Madalena and appears to be giving a ceremonial speech to the slaves, who are all under mind-control, while also guarding the statue of the Hero's wife.

Despite being a pallet-swap of dim monsters like Gigantes and Atlas, Ferz is deceptively intelligent and cunning. Before engaging the Hero in battle, Ferz will give a convincing act as the Hero's mother. If the Hero fails to see through the ruse, this will enable Ferz to inflict a curse on the Hero's party, thus giving her an advantage in their battle. Another difference between her physical-based counterparts is that she has a great degree of magical capability, both in battle and for enthralling the minds of others: Ferz had the capability to single-handedly brainwash an entire legion of slaves. In addition, Ferz has enough magical capability to maintain Morph for an extended period.

Unlike Bishop Ladja, Ferz is fanatically loyal to King Korol, referring to him as a God-King.

Ferz (ферзь) is Russian for Queen, referring to the chess piece rather than the aristocratic rank.


  • Ferz' sex is unknown, and the title of Queen is granted simply due to the chess-piece theme utilized by all members of the Order. It is assumed that Ferz is female due to the character's utilization of Madalena's identity and that Gigantes have no discernible sexual dimorphism.
  • Additionally, Ferz is referred to as female in the official guide book published by Brady games. This was written under the supervision of Square Enix, and would likely not have been a consistent typo.
