Main Dragon Quest Treasures characters
A curious young boy who lived on a viking ship with his sister, Mia. He dreams of going on grand adventures and finding great treasures. One day, when he and his sister snuck out in search of treasure, his dreams are answered, and they’re both sucked into a whirlwind adventure full of monsters, new friends, and untold riches.
Erik first appeared in Dragon Quest XI as a primary character who joins your party. Erik is much younger in Dragon Quest Treasures, leading many to believe that it’s some form of prequel to DQXI.
Mia is an energetic girl who hates to lose. She lived on the viking ship with her older brother Erik, until their passion for adventure led them on an exciting, treasure-filled journey. You can switch between controlling Erik or Mia throughout the game.
Like Erik, Mia also made her first appearance in Dragon Quest XI, in which she played the same role as Erik’s boisterous sister. Also like Erik, Mia appears much younger in Dragon Quest Treasures.
A mysterious cat spirit that Erik and Mia rescued on the viking ship. Purrsula chooses Erik as her partner, and accompanies him throughout the events of the game, often offering advice and guidance.
