Luminaries in Dragon Quest X

The Luminary (スーパースター, Superstar), previously known as TeenIdol in earlier localizations, is recurring, fabulous class in the Dragon Quest series that focuses more on fashion than fighting.

Dragon Quest VI[edit]

Luminaries have a great deal of Style and some unique skills. A character needs to master both the Dancer and Gadabout vocations to become a Luminary. Additionally, a Luminary can randomly charm an enemy for one turn once their rank beings to rise. Contrary to popular belief, Style has no influence on this chance.

Dragon Quest VII[edit]

This time, Luminaries (known as Teen Idols in the PS1 version) require the Troubadour vocation to be mastered to be unlocked, along with Dancer and Jester, but aside from that there are no significant changes to the vocation. Its chance to stun enemies is the same as VI's. In the 3DS version, Luminaries wear top hats, suits, and ruffled skirts similar to the outfits from Dragon Quest IX. In order to become a Druid, one must master both the Sage and Luminary classes.

Luminary cannot be unlocked until the main story is completed. To unlock the luminary class, you have to go to the dance club in Gleeba. Go over to the left side, near the girls' makeup room and talk a girl named Applaudia. She tells you to kill a moai minstrel with the hot lick ability. After doing so, go back and talk to her to unlock the luminary class.
