Debora is a character exclusive to the DS remake of Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride. She is a third potential bride of the player character, alongside her sister Nera and the hero's childhood friend Bianca. Humorously described by Dragon Quest creator Yuji Horii as a choice that "nobody in their right mind would pick," Debora is arrogant, egotistical, and at times treats the hero as more of a subordinate than a husband. If the Hero marries Debora, he gains the same benefits from Rodrigo Briscoletti, her father, that he would have gained if he married Debora's sister Nera. Nera will in turn marry Crispin, while Biance will return to Roundbeck to live with her father.
After marrying the Hero, Debora joins his party, travels to Gotha, becomes the queen, and eventually gives birth to twins; a boy named Parry and a girl named Madchen. A coronation and birthday party is thrown, but Debora is kidnapped in the middle of the night by monsters. When the hero arrives to rescue her, he and Debora are turned into living statues and separated for eight years.
The hero, Parry, and Madchen encounter Debora after those eight long years in the same temple the hero helped build as a slave. They manage to break the spell, and she helps the Hero and her children defeat Grandmaster Nimzo and save the world from darkness.
It is discovered during the course of the story that Debora, Nera, and Bianca were all mysteriously found as orphans, and that all three of them are likely sisters. They are all descendants of the Legendary Hero, the protagonist of Dragon Quest VI.
In Dragon Quest IX
In Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies, Debora is one of the many characters from past Dragon Quest games that will visit the Quester's Rest if the player connects the game to the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. If the player talks with her, she will present a copy of her dress as a gift. True to her nature, she looks down on the player as a lowly subordinate.
