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.
Jade is a tall and physically fit woman with purple eyes and long, dark purple 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.
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.
Jade was born to King Carnelian and Queen Belle more than 16 years prior to the start of the game. She was presented shortly after her birth to friends and rivals Hendrik and Jasper by her doting father, who presumably lavished upon her as his only heir to the throne. However, some time before the age of six, the Queen passed away, and Carnelian raised her with his court. She soon developed a rapport with other monarchs of the world as they met for the Colloquy of Kings, and in particular took a liking to the Drasilian royal family, taking them as her own when she visited.
Several nights after the Luminary was born, and after the Colloquy convened, Dundrasil came under attack from an army of monsters. King Irwin of Dundrasil ordered Jade, his wife Eleanor, and the babe evacuated to safety while he and the other kings of Erdrea fought to push back the fiends. While successful against the first waves, Irwin was soon stonewalled by two moosifers and a barbatos, and directed the women through a bunker in the dungeons of the castle. They escaped into the field, but Eleanor was killed while distracting two headless horsemen. Jade was struck by a third, losing the child and dropping him on a nearby river, where he floated with the currents. Believing the Luminary dead, and motivated by her self-hatred, Jade later went into exile along with Lord Robert and travelled the world with him, eventually training together as martial artists.
World of Light
Jade and Rab enter as contestants in a Masked Martial Arts tournament held in Octagonia when the two learn that the Rainbough is a potential prize. Jade's skill alone is more than enough to advance the pair into the final brackets, where they face off with the Luminary and partner Vince Vanquish, a reigning MMA champion. On the eve of the final match, Jade goes missing along with several other combatants, including Vince. Rab joins the Luminary in search of her.
As Vince disappeared at the orphanage he runs, the party looks there for clues. One of the kids saw Vince vanish in the basement. There, they find a secret passage leading to an underground cavern covered in spider webs. As they approach a chamber deep within the cave, Vince is heard negotiating with Arachtagon, who has been draining the energy of captured fighters to create a serum used by Vince to make himself the top fighter year-over-year. Arachtagon was using him to tenderise his prey before killing them, and Vince breaks off the pact when he learns this. But the spider has already injected Vince with his venom and begins to drain his strength as well. The party then engages Arachtagon in battle; and he is defeated. With this done, they free the trapped fighters and take them to recover for the night.
As Vince and the Luminary stage a tiebreaker MMA bout, Jade and Rab leave Octagonia with their winnings as well as the Rainbough, heading for Dundrasil.
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.
