Square Enix revealed the names and biographies of characters appearing in Version 6 of Dragon Quest X Online.

They will appear in the new version of the game, which will come out in Fall 2022. [Thanks, ryokutya2089!]
Though the three are not completely new to the lore of Dragon Quest X, Version 6 will be when they make their physical appearances. Ashley (Yoshitsugu Matsuoka) is a hero who defeated the Great Demon King Goda along with his twin brother Leone (Nobuhiko Okamoto). Between the two, Leone is the calmer one. As for Daphia (Reina Ueda), she fought alongside the two in their final battle against Goda. While Ashley’s and Leone’s biographies are available on the Dragon Quest X website, Daphia’s is absent.
Previous characters Matsuoka has voiced include Xiao from Genshin Impact and Kirito from Sword Art Online. As for Okamoto, he has played characters such as Accelerator from A Certain Magical Index and Bakugou in My Hero Academia. Finally, other roles Ueda has played are Kanao from Demon Slayer and Ganyu from Genshin Impact.
Dragon Quest X is an online MMORPG version of Dragon Quest. However, an offline version is in development. It originally had a release window of February 2022, but Square Enix delayed it until sometime in Summer 2022. This was due to how much content was in the game, as well as producer Shiraishi wanting the final version of Dragon Quest X Offline to be perfect.
Ashley, Leone, and Daphia will appear in Dragon Quest X Online Version 6, which will come out in Fall 2022. Dragon Quest X is available on Wii U, Windows PC, Nintendo 3DS, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch.
