Article on Dragon Quest Wiki Veronica (Dragon Quest XI)

Veronica (ベロニカ, Veronica) is a character from Dragon Quest XI and is the game's dedicated mage.

Origin[edit]

Veronica is a brash mage that the player first meets in Hotto, looking for her twin sister, Serena. Veronica and Serena are Keepers, a group of people dedicated to aiding the Luminary in defeating evil. Despite appearing very young, she is actually much older, but her magic was stolen by a monster named Jarvis.

The Luminary helps Veronica defeat Jarvis and get her sister and her magic back, but her age does not return until much later in the game (albeit temporarily). After returning to Hotto and learning about how to get to Yggdrasil, Veronica and Serena both swear to protect the Luminary in his quest to defeat the Dark One, and save Erdrea.

When Yggdrasil falls because of the evil sorceror Mordegon, a gravely injured Veronica uses the last of her strength to save her comrades from death and scatter them throughout the world. The Luminary comes across her lifeless body when they return to her homeland of Arboria, whereupon she disappears into light.

After Mordegon's defeat, the Luminary learns of a way to travel back in time, and decides to return to before Yggdrasil fell, thus preventing the death of Veronica and countless other people. After the party defeats Mordegon before he could act his plan, Veronica continues to accompany the Luminary in his quest to destroy the newly-reawakened demon Calasmos.

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[edit]

Other allusions[edit]

In Hero's Classic Mode path, the second battle involves fighting the Luminary and a small Robin in her red costume; as in the aforementioned spirit battle, this Robin is an allusion to Veronica.

Trivia[edit]

  • Veronica's trailer had a few references to Dragon Quest XI:
    • When she is introduced, her stage was Temple, referring to her hometown of Arboria.
    • She is shown, fighting Link and Female Robin. Link represents Jasper, a general who uses a sword and has blonde hair. Robin represents Krystalinda, a powerful witch with long white-blonde hair.
