Pteresa was the wild Pterosaur that had built a nest outside of the Healer's Hut in Spielburg Valley. She was being wooed by Pterry, and had placed the Healer's Golden Ring in her nest after it had been given to her. Seeing the glint of metal from the nest, the Hero retrieved it and returned the ring to Amelia Appleberry, but he scared Pteresa away from the nest in the process.
Pteresa appears in Quest for Glory I: So You Want to be a Hero?. There are three methods of getting the ring from the nest, each more appropriate to a different class:
- The Magic User method is to cast Fetch and bring the nest down.
- The Thief method is to climb the tree and reach into the nest.
- The Fighter method is to throw rocks at the nest and knock it to the ground.
