"That's why we have kept this village's location and what we know a secret...Were the ability to summon the Endless fall into the wrong hands, it would be disastrous. Whoever can control the dragons can control the world."
Abbess to party, wondering who summonned Ryu and Fou-Lu into this world

Abbess is a non-playable character who appears in Breath of Fire IV. She acts as the town leader of Chek and the guardian of its secrets, namely how to summon members of the Endless into the world. She is also one of the masters available for player characters to study under.

Role in Breath of Fire IV[]

Abbess can be found inside her house at the mountain village of Chek. Although blind, the Abbess is able to see the ‘pillars of light’ that emit from living beings and because of this immediately recognizes Ryu as the Yorae dragon when he comes to speak with her. She is unable to tell the party how he came into the world, however, and expresses worry that someone has betrayed the secret of the village’s technique. This fear is later put partially to rest when Deis reveals that both she and Ryu were summoned by the Fou Empire through another, imperfect technique, which resulted in their appearing in incomplete forms.

When Rasso and his troops come to the village, the Abbess temporarily takes shelter inside of Ershin.

After Ryu meets all of the dragons, he can return to Chek and the Abbess will become a master. Her Reck skill is good for anyone to gain skills, but as a master, she is best suited for a magical character like Nina or Ursula.
