Dragon Quest VII

Nava is a sick girl, her illness being unknown, but she is prone to fatigue. She lives with Zev, her younger brother, traveling to Alltrades Abbey. There, they are tricked by Cardinal Sin and are stripped of their abilities, being exiled to Pilgrim's Perdition. There, she catches the eye of Eustace, much to the ire of her younger brother.

The party are taken in by Nava after their defeat by Strom and his goons. Zev complains that Nava is pushing herself too hard. Eustace enters the residence and hands Nava the WorldDew. Zev gets jealous that Eustace is getting his older sister's attention. He tells Nava to lay down, which she does reluctantly. Zev tells Eustace to stop bothering his sister to which Eustace replies that Nava can do whatever she wants. Eustace leaves.

When the party is defeated by Rashers and Stripes on the fourth floor of the West Cave they return to Penal again and collapse. The party awakens and finds themselves back at Nava and Zev's residence. Zev tells Nava that he wants to speak with her outside. He tells her that he is able to get Nava's medicine for her and that she doesn't need to flirt with Eustace. Nava tells him that she isn't flirting with him. Zev storms off to talk to Eustace.

A pink warrior goes soul harvesting in a gambit to escape Pilgrim's Perdition. He encounters Eustace and he fights the Temple Guard while he is protecting Nava. Strom comes and helps Eustace fight the pink warrior. They are able to overcome him. The pink warrior decides to attack Nava so that she will become the fifth soul he needs to get out of Pilgrim's Perdition. However, Zev intercepts the attack. The attack is shallow so it doesn't take Zev's soul but it was enough to warrant the monsters (Composed of 3 Babygoyles) taking the pink warrior out of Penal. All of the people whose souls where taken, including Zev is taken to the mountain settlement.

Nava is despondent because of the loss of her brother. Eustace decides that he will help Nava get back her brother. He tells the party that he knows that he is unable to help Nava by himself. He decides to ally himself with the party in order to save Nava's brother and Fosse. He tells the party to meet him in the cave west of Pilgrim's Perdition, the same cave in which Fingers had betrayed them.

While they are traveling through the cave, Eustace gives Nava a hairband as a gift. Afterwards, the group reaches the mountain settlement where all of the remaining priests reside, guarded by the people who were attacked by the Soulstealer. However, Zev isn't there in the settlement.

There they find the Head Priest and Nava talking with Eustace. Eustace realizes that he must save Fosse. He decides to take Fingers and the party with him. Eustace tells Nava to stay here while they rescue Fosse.

Zev returns out of the blue, muttering to himself. The Head Priest is gone. Eustace notices that Nava doesn't have on the hairband that he gave her before in the West Cave. Nava claims that she lost it but Eustace isn't convinced. Unknown to them, this is actually Gobbler in disguise.

The party find Zev and Nava in a waiting room. Nava has taken up the Soulstealer, wishing to kill the pink warrior who hurt Zev. However, her illness, coupled with the dementia created by the Soulstealer has made her unstable and erratic. Zev tells Nava to give him the Soulstealer, saying that she will feel better. However a monster stops Zev, telling him that it is curious to see how far Nava will go in the tournament. Zev storms off to talk to the monster running the arena to sign up but because he is by himself, the monsters do not allow him to participate. Zev is forced to join forces with the party and hopes that he gets paired against Nava.

The party goes up against five other warriors partied with monsters. They defeat five of them until they take on Nava, the current champion. Nava comments that even her brother wants to kill her. Zev tells her that he will save her. The party, with Zev's help, are able to disarm Nava and return her Soulstealer into her body, knocking her unconscious. Zev wishes to attend to her, but with five victories and the defeat of the current champion, the monsters push the party and Zev away, saying that they have earned their freedom. Eustace watches as the party is taken by the monsters. Zev tells Eustace to take care of his sister. As the monsters escort them off the stage, Zev runs back, thanking the party for helping him. Should the party return, they will see that the people have revolted against the monsters. The riot had been started by Eustace while he was protecting Nava. The rebellion is successful when the party defeats Cardinal Sin.

Zev talks to Nava several days after the party's victory over Cardinal Sin. He tells her about his plan to help her with her illness, taking on quests so that he can afford the medicine she needs. Nava is adamantly against Zev's plan, saying that he would put himself in danger. Zev tells Nava that they don't have to depend on Eustace anymore. However, Nava tells Zev that she doesn't want Zev or anyone to make sacrifices for her. She doesn't want to feel like a burden. She tells her younger brother that she can take care of herself. Zev walks away, saying that he needs to get a sword as he is now a warrior. Nava doesn't realize that Zev has left her in Alltrades Abbey to find a way to help her with her illness.


Dragon Quest VII

The player will fight Nava in the finals of the Allblades Arena. She is accompanied by three Slime Knights. The slime knights should be defeated first as they will heal her.

Nava uses a bevy of ice attacks, including Kacrackle Slash and Crack, as well as attacking twice in one round. Zev is a big help in this fight, casting Midheal when a party member is low on health, Buff to bolster their defense, Bang to attack the enemies and a strong physical attack which does ~30 HP damage. The Hero should attack, stopping only to use Midheal. Ruff should attack regularly, while Maribel should be given the Salvation stone and become the designated Healer. She is a bit difficult but not that hard.
