Ms. Mowz is a character and party member in the game Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. Though she is useful in the game, she is an optional character, meaning that the player doesn't need to have her to Mario's party. She is Squeek character whom collects rare badges to sell at her shop, the Lovely Howz of Badges. Mario will encounter her throughout the game, usually right after she steals what she came for, but kisses Mario right before leaving. The player can get her to join Mario's party by accepting the "Elusive Badge" trouble at the Trouble Center in Rogueport. Her special ability is to detect hidden items.
