In-Depth Review and Discussion of Dehya Story Quest ACT I

Dehya’s Characterization

When starting the quest, we as the players have already familiarized ourselves with Dehya as a pre-established character that was heavily involved in the Sumeru Archon quests. In the Archon Questline, we witnessed Dehya as a pretty well-tempered individual who sticks to her ideals and morals and has always advocated the representation of the Desert people, the very people that have been oppressed and shunned by the Forest people.

From the previous Archon Quests, Dehya was seen to be working as a personal Bodyguard for Dunyarzard. Even when she worked for the pay, she grows a sense of attachment for her client and it’s displayed very clearly when she sacrifices her own Claymore for Dunyarzard’s happiness. It just further shows Dehya’s true character, that despite having such a harsh exterior and appearance she has a kind soul who only wants the best.

The Story Quest let us dive into Dehya’s own origin being a Desert folk and an Eremite at such a young age. Her backstory is quite angst-filled with her father being a bad parent and her never seeing her own mother.

Story Plot

The story dived into more about the lives of the Desert people, especially about the Eremites. Dehya’s being an Eremite herself lets us into the backstory of how she came to be. She speaks out about her life in the desert with her alcoholic dad and the struggles of being an Eremite mercenary. It is quite admirable and brave to see Dehya in such a situation and the players can instantly get a read on her upbringing and the reason why Dehya acts like she is currently, tough and hard-hitting.

The story also shows us the life of Eremites and Dehya’s own crew in the flesh. We see a glimpse of their attitudes and personality while Dehya interacts with her friends and crewmates. Suffice it to say, it is quite refreshing to see such friendly Eremites seeing as how the game always held a sense of prejudice about the Desert people in the first get-go and tries to make the players antagonize them.

When Dehya comes to aid Dunyarzard back in Sumeru City, she suddenly tells the Traveler and Paimon that something is up within the Eremite crews and that she needs to leave for the Desert to immediately solve it. Apparently, a group of Eremites called the Al-Ahmer group or the King Deshret group sought to seek King Deshret’s tombs and discover hidden secrets in order to sell them for a hefty price. Dehya of course puts a stop to it in her own cool way. We also get to see an emotional moment between her and her late father who passed away years ago and it did pull on some heartstrings.

Final Thoughts

Dehya’s story quest was pretty interesting to witness as we get to see a more private and vulnerable part of her story and character. Dehya has always been an individual that stood out the most in the Archon Quests with her sense of bravery and humility to do what’s right, especially for the Desert people. The Story Archon has been quite satisfying and it will be interesting to see Dehya in any future Stories too.
