The "Shady Merchant Father" Shield (Japanese: 盾の"Mii's name" "Mii's name" Shield) is a boss fought in the Great Pyramid alongside the "Shady Merchant Daughter" Blade.

This type of monster also makes an appearance as a Travelers' Hub quest monster. It looks the same (albeit with a Traveler's face) and doesn't have an individual entry in the Monsters section of the Journal. Its moveset is even the same, though it's significantly stronger, being a post-game encounter.


The "Shady Merchant Father" Shield is orange with a red/yellow striped pattern on its edge. The Shady Merchant Father's face is plastered on the front of the shield and it has a handle on its back.



The Shady Merchant Father's face, alonside his daughter's, being attatched to the Blade and Shield.

The Shady Merchant Father, along with everyone else in Neksdor Town, gets his face stolen by the Dark Lord which forces the protagonist to go after him. The protagonist enters the pyramid in which the Shady Merchant Family (the daughter and father) faces appear, and then get stuck to the levitating blade and shield. After you defeat them, they will return to the Neksdor Town where they'll reward you with one of the Neksdor Jewels. They'll also decrease the price of the MP Candy they sell, albeit, it'll still be very overpriced-going from 500 G to 498 G.


The Travelers' Hub quest variant can randomly show up in the end of a temporary dungeon, this time with the client's face. Defeating it will clear the quest.
