Jessica Albert is a character in Dragon Quest VIII. A girl from a good home, she comes from a wealthy family in the small village of Alexandria. However, contrary to her upbringing, she is unskilled in the social niceties and expected behaviour of her environment, which often leads to conflict with her mother. She joins up with the Hero for personal reasons, strengthening the party with her flair for offensive magic. Something of a tomboy, Jessica is nothing like her mother, who expects her to be prim and proper in public.

Magic is far from Jessica's only strength; she is also an outstanding fighter. Whips, staves, knives and later swords are her weapons of choice.


Jessica has red hair in a form of long pigtails with a few strands of it hanging over her face. She wears a low-cut purple blouse with sleeves starting at the upper part of her arm. She has a yellow corset-like article of clothing around her stomach and waist, which has an auburn belt around it that a small pouch hangs from. She has a long, maroon colored skirt that has a white frill at the bottom. One can see that she has brownish-black stockings under the skirt, and pointed, brown shoes, into which the stockings are tucked.
