[edit] The Baby Lady

Amazing 16-color graphics!
"Show me you're a real man, Rather Dashing."

The Baby Lady is first seen in Peasant's Quest Preview. She sits rocking in her chair with her baby as the camera zooms in on her. In the actual game Peasant's Quest, you can find her in a hut; she tells you that something odd is in one of the bushes outside and that her husband was crushed by Trogdor (which is a reference to TROGDOR! the game). She asks you to get her insurance riches back from the Jhonka. Once you accomplish this, however, she takes the riches and quickly leaves the cottage, leaving you the baby. In the text following, it revealed she's actually a known criminal who does scams like this all the time, and that the money and the baby were rightfully someone else's. In the movie trailer she is played by Jackie Chapman, Matt's wife. On July 2, 2007, The Brothers Chaps used a special Main Page message featuring the Baby Lady to announce that they would be taking a break due to the birth of Jackie's baby in real life, and on December 1, 2009, they used a similar message on the FeedBurner page due to the birth of Jackie's second baby, but this second break eventually grew into a hiatus.

In a proposed sequel to Peasant's Quest, "Peasant's Quest 2: Return of the Babym'n", Peasantry has become a peaceful kingdom twenty-five years after Trogdor's defeat, and it is ruled over by the "seemingly benevolent Queen Babyladia". It is unclear how the Baby Lady came to rule over Peasantry. However, this sequel idea never came to fruition.

[edit] The Baby

So much potential...
"Throw baby!"

The baby is the apparent child of the Baby Lady, but after giving the Baby Lady what she wants, it is revealed that she may not actually be the baby's mother.

Rather Dashing acquires this baby and becomes his "father", using the child to accomplish his quest. It will live with being thrown into a lake, lowered into a well, and handed over to a pill-forcing stranger, but once it gets shoved into a cottage, The baby takes off. When he grows up he becomes valedictorian of his class, goes to Scalding Lake State University, and lands a job at Thatch-Pro: "building better cottages for a better tomorrow". He later develops a mead problem, blames Rather Dashing for never being there for him, and eventually stops writing.

In the same proposed sequel mentioned above, the baby (now known as the Babym'n) was to be the player character. He was to seek out Trogdor and find out the truth about his surrogate father, Rather Dashing, as well as whether Queen Babyladia truly was his supposed mother.
