Final Fantasy IX

Quina Quen

Jarrod Garripoli

Quina is a member of the Qu tribe, who are genderless beings that have a knack for eating things. They are notable for their long tongues and broken English, with Quina’s “mission” being to try out new foods all of the time, leading to some comical situations. Despite this one-set mind, Quina is shown to enjoy the company of your party throughout the game, usually trying to cheer someone up when they are down.

Quina’s two special skills go hand in hand, as one cannot be used without the other. Eat will allow Quina to devour an enemy, but only if they have less than 25% HP left. Should s/he uses Eat on specific enemies, Quina can learn Blue Magic, which makes up the brunt of his/her special abilities. Once Quina has learned a Blue Magic, you cannot Eat any other enemies with that spell (or the same one) to try and “learn” it again; there is no powering up of the spells (with one exception, but it’s not related to using Eat). Quina’s Trance turns Eat into Cook, increasing the threshold from under 25% HP to 50%.

A group known as the Tantalus Theatre Troupe visits the kingdom of Alexandria to celebrate the birthday of Princess Garnet. Unbeknownst to the royal family and the citizens of the city, the troupe is actually a band of thieves, who are aiming to kidnap the princess. However, to add a twist, the princess was planning on escaping the castle all along, even asking the troupe to "kidnap" her. This little event kickstarts many others, leading to a grand adventure.
