Jade is a character in Dragon Quest XI. As a martial artist, she fights with her bare hands, claws, and spears, while also being highly geared towards charming the enemy with her sex appeal.

Appearance

Jade is a tall and physically fit woman with purple eyes and long, jet-black hair tied with a red hairband in a ponytail that goes past her back and a fringe parted to the right side of her face. She wears a jade green-coloured halter top attached to a choker with a metal ring over a black tank top and a jade green leather wrap over a pair of black short shorts. On her hands, she wears jade green bracers and black fingerless gloves, and she also wears a pair of jade green high-heeled boots that reach up to her knee. She is often seen carrying a glaive resembling a cross between a Japanese naginata and a Chinese guan dao.

Variations

  • Bunny Girl/Demoness: Jade wears black bunny ears with one ear bent, a black bunny suit with a styled tail, and black fishnet stockings with stiletto heels. In demon form, takes on red eyes and a black/red aura.
  • Étudiante de l'Académie: Dark blue jacket and pleated skirt with white trim over white blouse with red cravat. Black stockings and heels.
  • Swimsuit: ???
  • Warrior Princess: White, feminine battle armour over black mail leggings under multi-toned purple dress with red and gold accents at the waist. Full-length white gloves with deep purple trim at the upper arm. Complemented with jewelled headdress. (Warrior Princess Set/Minerva Set)
  • Divine bustier: With white leggings and gloves, plus white boots with gold soles.

Personality

Jade is fearless and brave. Her flashing kicks are said to be unmatched in terms of power. Her elegant beauty and dignified personality indicate that she may be more than just a skilled warrior. She deems herself the protector of the Hero, much like an older sister, but has a vulnerable side as well.

Biography

Dragon Quest XI

Strategy

Take Jessica Albert from Dragon Quest VIII and let out the pigtails for floor-length hair; then mix her with Aishe from Dragon Quest VII; and add in Alena from Dragon Quest IV to come up with this unprecedented gunner. While somewhat fragile defensively, Jade's rapid-fire abilities like Multithrust and Multifeet are sure to make her a mainstay in any line-up. Perhaps more so than any other member, Jade is well-suited to battle elusive metal monsters from her earliest development. She does not gain any spells, but can use her innate charm to bewilder foes before sending them flying.

Etymology

Jade's original Japanese name, Martina, is the feminine form of the Roman name Martinus. The name ultimately derives from Mars, the Roman god of warrior, and befits her role as a martial artist. Martina was a 3rd-century patron saint of the city of Rome.

Her localised name, Jade, is derived from the ornamental stone of the same name, which is used in jewelry and artwork. It is also a shade of green, which fits as the majority of her outfit is colored green. Jade was greatly valued in Asian countries. Confucius believed that jade had properties encouraging bravery, honesty, and purity.
