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;
The Brother was handsome & vain;
‘Let him brag of his looks,’
Father said; ‘mind your books!
The best beauty is bred in the brain.’”
-Aesop & Walter Crane, _The Baby’s Own Aesop_, 36: “Brother & Sister”. 1887.

Useful Info

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.

Location

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.
