Template:MQ Character Kaeli, also known as Karen, is one of Benjamin's allies from Final Fantasy Mystic Quest. She wields axes, and hails from the town of Foresta. She has a deep connection to nature and cares deeply for the trees in the nearby Level Forest.

After Benjamin is given a Withered Branch to show her, Kaeli becomes very distressed over the state of the Level Forest, and against her mother's wishes, sets out with him to help remedy the situation. She helps Benjamin through the forest. However, upon discovering the cause of the dying trees, an "evil tree," the tree upon being cut down reveals itself to be the Minotaur, who promptly poisons her with poisonous gas, as he did to the trees. However, she managed to fight off the poison long enough to fight alongside Benjamin to put an end to the Minotaur. Benjamin saves her by recovering an elixir from Tristam after a raid on the Bone Dungeon, to which she gives her axe to further help him. When she is healed, Kaeli wishes to go to Aquaria to gather information about her father Captain Mac, but as she is still recovering, Benjamin goes in her place.

Much later, Benjamin is delayed in his quest to Windia by a Giant Tree in the middle of Alive Forest. He returns to Aquaria and recruits Kaeli to help him heal the tree and progress. Kaeli continues to accompany Benjamin up to and including the fight with Pazuzu. When Captain Mac's ship is finally accessible, she gives Benjamin the Captain's Cap to give to her father, and takes him to Windia to rest after the ship is cleared out of monsters.
