| A plain-looking elven fighter who is technically brilliant in many forms of combat, but over-confident because of it. She is complemented by the magical skills of her twin brother, Dowan. She journeys to the surface to challenge its greatest champions.
“Twin children: the Girl, she was plain;
Duvessa, Sister of Dowan is one of a pair of twin elf uniques that hunt through the Dungeon as a team and are always encountered together. Duvessa has the stats and gear of a deep elf fighter, while her brother is a somewhat competent magician; however, when either one is struck down, their sibling becomes significantly more dangerous. In Duvessa's case, this means going berserk the moment she sees you.

Tips & Tricks
- Neither Duvessa nor Dowan will follow you up or down stairs unless their sibling is adjacent to you too (in which case they both will) or their sibling is dead.
- A berserk Duvessa hits very hard and very fast, but only hurts in melee range and has no ranged attacks, contrary to Dowan who will pelt you with strong magic from a distance.
- Consider wearing them both down before killing either of them. The survivor's HP will still be fairly low even after finding hidden power.
- While Dowan will keep his buffs forever, Duvessa gets over it in about 20 turns, so if you can kill Dowan when she's not in sight, you can then stall for time when she sees you and goes berserk.
