Romahna, the Dragon Warden

By Keith McDonald

Romahna was a fiery wardress who supported Smirkenorff the Dragon in a bid to prevent dragons from becoming extinct.


Romahna the Dragon Warden replaced Elita as Smirkenorff's keeper.

Like her predecessor, Romahna is confrontational, but she also carries more weaponry.

She wore a white mask that covered half her face and carried a crossbow.

Move a muscle and I'll put a bolt into you, do you understand?

Romahna the Dragon Warden, played by Jacquelin Joyce in Series 7 of Knightmare (1993).

Trust issues

Romahna's task to protect Smirkenorff is instantly made tougher by Lord Fear's new dragon-slaying monster, the Brollachan.

It makes her more distrustful of dungeoneers, but Treguard believes her concerns come from a good place.

When Romahna does trust a dungeoneer, she might instruct Smirkenorff to offer a free flight to Level 2.

Bark and bite

Despite Romahna's aggression, she was particularly susceptible to capture.

She is caught three times by the otherwise hapless servants, Sylvester Hands and Raptor. She is even warned about Raptor in advance, as Lord Fear targets her to get to Smirkenorff.

Romahna's bravery isn't in doubt. She tackles the tricky Trial by Spikes to show one team the combination.

She also puts her crossbow to use in the final quest, twice keeping goblins at bay.
