|Dragon Quest IX|
|Family|| Catarrhina (wife) †|
As the player gathers additional information, it is discovered that the source of the disease may be a tomb located west of Coffinwell, known as the Quarantomb. It is also discovered that Dr. Phleming is married to the Mayor's daughter, Catarrhina, and the Mayor is unhappy with their marriage. The player agrees to become Dr. Phlegming's bodyguard for the Quarantomb expidition. After flipping two switches located in in statues in the northeast and southeast corners of the dungeon, a central door opens. In this central door, there is a pot which has been broken by the recent 'earthquake', which has released the disease. While Dr. Phlegming reassembles the broken bits of the pot, the Ragin' Contagion appears and attacks the party. After the beast is defeated and resealed into the pot, the player returns with the doctor to find Catarrhina has died from the illness. The next day, she is buried, although Dr. Phlegming does not show up due to shame. That evening, Catarrhina's ghost appears and requests for the player to guide Dr. Phlegming around town to see all the lives he has saved. Dr. Phlegming realises he has done something good for everyone. Upon returning to his study, the doctor agrees to interact with the community more, and Catarrhina's ghost ascends to the heavens. He also becomes good friends with the mayor.
