Minotta was one of the Harpies dwelling on Harpy Island. When she and her sisters encountered Cedric the Owl and Graham, Minotta snatched the King of Daventry. She was eager to eat the king, until the music of his magical harp distracted her. She and her sisters bickered over who would own the instrument, allowing the king time to escape.
Minotta appears in King's Quest V: Absence Makes the Heart Go Yonder.
