| 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 permanently 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.
- Prior to 0.28, Duvessa's berserk would eventually wear off, often making Dowan the better choice to kill first.
