Maiden

The Maiden in her default color palette.

Maidens are minor characters in Shovel Knight. They walk around the Village and Armor Outpost.

AppearanceEdit

Maidens appear as bipedal female horses wearing a dress and a matched necklace.

StoryEdit

Shovel of HopeEdit

In Shovel of Hope, Maidens can be found wandering in the Village and Armor Outpost.

A Maiden appears in the ending with the rest of the Village, watching the end of the Tower of Fate. The same Maiden can also be seen wooed by Propeller Knight aboard the Flying Machine.

Plague of ShadowsEdit

In Plague of Shadows, Maidens can be found at the Village but are scared off by Plague Knight. One of them flees aboard the Aerial Anvil after Plague Knight's invasion of the Armor outpost.

In the ending again, a Maiden is among the Village's crowd watching the Tower of Fate crumbling down.

DialogueEdit

A purple dress, brown hair Maiden walking in the Village:

"Maiden: You meet that old witch down in the Juice Bar? I think she tells fortunes, but she won't talk to me!"

A red dress, brown hair Maiden walking in the Village:

"Maiden: I like to look nice on my day off!"

A white dress, brown hair Maiden walking in the Armor Outpost:

"Maiden: Say, you ever think a horse maiden like me and a guy like you could... No, never mind."

A blue dress, brown hair Maiden walking in the Armor Outpost:

"Maiden: I'm a quarter donkey on my mother's side!"

A purple dress, brown hair Maiden walking in the Armor Outpost:

"Maiden: I'm bringing some oats home to my family! I bet they're hungry."

TriviaEdit

  • An unused model of a peasant horse lady simply named "Peasant Lady" can be found in the game's files. The model is used as placeholder when placing specific NPC on a stage in the game's developer tool.[1]
