The Prince of Midenhall, also known as the Prince of Lorasia (ローレシアの王子), is one of the three playable characters from Dragon Quest II. He is a descendant of Erdrick who responds to the sudden rising threat of Hargon. He inherited all of his ancestor's physical strength, but unlike his cousins the Prince of Cannock and the Princess of Moonbrooke, he cannot use magic, and as such is the only Dragon Quest main hero who doesn't possess any magical ability. The Japanese version depicts the Prince of Midenhall as a man of convictions who is determined to protect his kingdom and his world. This also holds true in the American version.

The name given to the hero in the Japanese CD theater drama and novelizations is Allen (アレン).

Appearance and Personality[edit]

The Hero wears blue for the most part, though the goggles that rest on his helmet are brown. He wears a blue tunic over form-fitting black clothing, blue shoes with light blue socks, and blue gloves. Across his chest is a swordbelt with a scabbard attached to the back. He also wears a brown belt around his waist with a small brown pouch on it and a belt buckle in the shape of Erdrick's symbol. His sword is typical aside from the hand cover built into the hilt, and his shield is adorned with Erdrick's symbol.

Even though the Hero is a silent protagonist and his personality is open for the player to define, a strong sense of justice can be seen in the beginning of the game, as he sets out to stop Hargon's evil cult without so much as a "But thou must" question from the King.

Although the Hero is the only nameable character, he remains equal in stature with his 2 companions in Dragon Quest II, the Prince of Cannock and the Princess of Moonbrooke. All 3 are descendants of Erdrick. This varies from other games in the series where only the hero is of notable birth compared to his party companions.

Equipment[edit]

As the most physically powerful of the trio, the Prince of Midenhall has access to the widest range of weapons and armor. He can equip every weapon and piece of armor available, including heavier ones that his cousins cannot use, such as the Sledgehammer. This means he is also the only character who has access to the legendary Erdrick's equipment, and as such, should use them when facing Hargon.
