Talana was the last Dragon Knight before rousing the slumbering dragon powers in the the player's character. After her encounter with Rhode and dying from her wounds, she grants the ex-slayer a dream of being in a dragon's body and imparting her power to the player's character, turning the unfortunate Dragon Slayer into a Dragon Knight. Talana dies from her wounds, although her spirit guides the player's character throughout the game, making waspish but (sometimes) useful comments to them after completion of quests and triggering of cut-scenes. Her personality is a chivalrous one at least, and berates the player's character on completing quests in unjust ways.
