Your life in the mountain village of Weaver’s Peak is calm and quiet… until you fall face-first into the “phantom realm” told of in village lore.
When the spirit of the mountain beckons you to save the land, you set forth on a fantastic adventure.
Despite having no recollection of her past, Ashlynn maintains a blindly optimistic outlook that makes her a charming addition to the party.
Who is she, and why is she so gifted with magic?
A roaming martial artist, traveling the world on a journey to sharpen his skills.
Though Carver isn’t always the sharpest tool in the shed, his fierce loyalty and good-natured hijinks more than make up for his occasional lack of wits.
A young prodigy from Ghent, a village renowned for its healing powers.
Despite his youth, Nevan’s strong will and calm demeanor make him an asset on any journey.
An enigmatic woman of unknown origins.
A chance encounter brings you both together early on in your adventure.
A lone warrior on a quest to find the most powerful sword in the world.
Might makes right, as far as Terry is concerned, but what is it that he truly seeks?
These are the official English names for the lead characters, which differ a bit from the Japanese names. Carver was Hassan and Ashlynn was Barbara, for example.
Dragon Quest VI: Realms of Revelation comes out on February 14 in North America.
