Cassandra/Paradox

Wiki Targeted (Games)

02:59

Cassandra is the leader of Lady’s Village and a boss encountered in the second part of Monster Girl Quest: Paradox. She's fought twice. The first time is alongside her daughter, Emily, while the second one is long after she's been recruited and is a throwback to her fight in the original trilogy.


Biography

She is first mentioned in Part 1 by an elf in Enrika who mentions that she was beaten with Emily by Neris. Luka later meets her after they locked themselves in their mansion due to Candy stealing their power, while their loyal scylla maid keeps guard. When the sealed Alice/Ilias shows up accompanied by Luka, the lord of the mansion relishes in their weakness, before revealing themselves that they were sealed by Candy. They ask the hero to return their power, pointing out that the uncontrollable Candy would be a greater threat than them while they would behave.

After completing the task of beating up Candy and restoring Emily and Cassandra’s power to them, they run off to the Poison Swamp, eager to become the next Magical Girl. After knocking sense into them, they join the party.

However, Cassandra ends up slipping up into her old habits and attacks Candy in the Pocket Castle before fleeing to the Poison Swamp. Cassandra reveals that she still plans to conquer the world to the dismay of her daughter who saw their dream of being idols as sincere. After being defeated in her fully mature form by the party and an awkward scuffle involving Candy and her daughter, the three of them end in their sealed forms and awkwardly return to the Pocket Castle.

Monsterpedia Entry

“The Lord of Lady’s Village, she also competed against Alipheese the 15th for the Monster Lord’s throne. Extremely strong, she is one of the most powerful monsters in the world. It appears as though she can trace her lineage far down the line to the Fateburn family.

Holding the genes of many different monster lines in her, it seems as though she can produce offspring of many different types. In addition, she is able to control her flesh freely. Using that, she can form her digestive organ outside of her own body, and watch her prey be digested with her own eyes. Wrapping up her prey in her organ, Cassandra usually forces them to have multiple orgasms, until they have no semen left. After that, she enjoys watching them as they slowly dissolve away.

Now weakened, she only has about as much strength as her daughter Emily. However, she appears to be enjoying her rejuvenated younger body, and does not appear to be bothered so much by this.”

Strategy

First Battle

If you are weak to digest, you’re in for a bad time. Emily is the damage dealer and Cassandra mainly makes your life annoying with her threat of insta kill though predation combined with her heals and buffs. If possible, mana draining her prevents the dispel, but nothing else, yet that might be all you need.

Furthermore, Aqua Shield and Aqua Mirror protect her from most damage, and she can then heal herself. You NEED to dispel those unless you want the fight to drag on, or worse, having party members kill themselves with a reflected lightning spell. You can neutralize Emily with Status Effects, but Cassandra has resists too high to count on that. Cripple Emily, kill Cassandra, then finish off the former.

Second Battle

This time fought alone, Adult Cassandra can be a pretty tough boss if you're not correctly prepared. While she can no longer devour characters affected by Digested, every single one of her attack is party-wide or will dangerously increase an already solid resistance. Even if she has a dispel, increasing your own evasion/magic evasion through the likes of Harpy Dance and Carbuncle will reduce the amount of pain your party will suffer, while having someone on healing duty for the whole duration of the battle is a necessity, as your party WILL take heavy damage each turn if you're unlucky or not careful enough.

On the offensive side, your options are a bit limited. Aqua Shield and Aqua Mirror are still here, needing to be dispelled occasionally if only to prevent your own magic spells to backfire horribly. She's immune to water and very resistant to physical, so using any other elements than those is required. She has a minor weakness to Holy and Bio, but any other element will do just fine as well. You can Slow or Mini her to slightly decrease her damage output, but you can forget all other status ailments, and they won't be effective against her magical spells that make for the majority of her skills.

Evaluation

"Why does Cassandra look so young again? Magical Girl...? What the hell is going on... Cassandra is a slime-based yoma. She uses slime and digestion skills. She has no other weakness besides the Bio element. In addition to poison, mini is also effective against her and Emily. Now go, oh Brave Luka. Can I become a Magical Girl too? Ufu."

Her second battle does not have an evaluation
