Even now, my comrades are fighting Griffon in the future...”— Monica
Princess Monica Raybrandt is the female protagonist in Dark Cloud 2. She lives a hundred years ahead of Max's time, in an unknown part of the land.
Monica is a 15 year-old friendly and kind girl; she is also wise and very cautious. While she is generally shown as dutiful, helpful, and strong, and sometimes she also has a mean temper and can sometimes be offended easily. Overall, she is giving, charming, and competitive.
Monica is not selfish; she is, in fact, probably the most generous character in the game. When she meets Max, she quickly becomes his reliable ally, and also becomes very protective of him. She is a princess, and like Max, she does not take advantage of her wealth and power. She is adventurous, and loves to explore.
Dark Cloud 2Edit
Monica's Atlamillia was passed down from her father, after he was murdered by an assassin named Gaspard in the beginning of the game. Using her Atlamillia, Monica teleported herself 100 years into the past, Maximillian's time. She first appeared as a young boy dressed in rags, to attract Max's attention.
Monica has extremely long pink-red hair that grows slightly past her knees. Several bands are used to tie it into a ponytail, and the player can choose her hair ribbon. She has large red eyes and, like Max, a small nose. She is very slim and has big feet. She likes to dress simply, but her father gave her extraordinary clothes, as seen in the tutorial. Her default outfit consists of pumpkin shorts, knight boots, and a yellow hair ribbon, but the player can choose different outfits for her, which are sold throughout the game.
Monica is proficient with swords, and has great magical capabilities that are empowered by armbands. She has 48 different swords, and 19 different armbands. Monica starts her journey with a basic a Long Sword and Magic Brassard.
