Thea is the daughter of Lyle and princess of Shusoran, at least in the event that Rhys chooses to marry Maia. She may still exist if Rhys goes with Lena instead, but that is a subject of much debate. At any rate, Thea gets to play the traditional role of a princess in video games - she is captured by the villain and held prisoner. Rescuing the princess does not end the game here, though. Instead, she joins the heroes and eventually faces down the villain responsible for driving her people out of Shusoran.

Following in the footsteps pioneered by Phantasy Star II, Phantasy Star III: Generations of Doom gave each playable character an individual head shot portrait to make them more recognizable to players. This was especially vital for this game, which tended to use the same set of graphics for several characters with slight color changes. Unlike the similar pictures of Nei and friends, however, these portraits were used for speech in important story scenes and the standard character menu. The previous game restricted the portrait availability to Rolf's house, but this one allowed the players to see the characters at any time they were available for play.
