The Order of Zugzwang (光の教団, hikari no kyōdan, cult of light) is a religious organization in Dragon Quest V.

Founded by King Korol, their creed is allegedly to create a "White King's Paradise" to save everyone from the coming darkness; in reality, they worship Grandmaster Nimzo as a god and is a front for infiltration by the forces of Nadiria for their conquest of the world, before being opposed and eventually defeated by one of its victims, the Hero and his extended family.

Description[]

Their main temple, Crocodilopolis, was built on Mount Azimuth using slave labour in the place of a demolished temple to the Goddess. Both the Hero and Prince Harry spent ten years labouring here as slaves until they managed to escape.

The high ranking members of the Order are:

  • King Korol: The white king and nominal leader of the Order of Zugzwang. It is later revealed after being defeated that Ladja is the true master of the order.
  • Queen Ferz: A priestess for the order under the false guise of Madalena, whose true form is slain by the heroes during their storm into Crocodilopolis.
  • Bishop Ladja: A high priest who does the dirty work for the order and is responsible for much of the Hero's hardship. It is revealed that he is the true second of command to Nimzo and is finally defeated on Mt. Zugzwang.
  • Kon the Knight: A subordinate of Ladja who is defeated in Knightmare Towers with the help of the Hero's wife.
  • Slon the Rook: A subordinate of Ladja who is killed in the Talon Tower.
  • Orc pawn: A subordinate of Kon who is defeated in Knightmare Towers during the rescue attempt of the Hero's wife.
  • Chimaera pawn: A subordinate of Kon who is defeated in Knightmare Towers during the rescue attempt of the Hero's wife.
