Amos is an optional party member in Dragon Quest VI. After being bitten on the backside while saving some townsfolk from monsters, he has developed a terrible case of nightly transfiguration and becomes an unwitting menace to the very town he protects.

Appearance and Personality

Amos is a burly man whose attire consists of a blue, sleeveless gambeson that terminates into Roman-style flaps at his waist. Underneath that is form-fitting black tights that extend past his head to form a hood underneath a blue, gold-rimmed helmet accessorized with two small wings. Around his waist are two brown straps from where a dull green traveller's bag at his right hip and a sheathe at his left are attached. He wears baggy beige pants that are tucked into black leather boots taped over with yellow bandages. He has light blue eyes and brown hair, and is usually seen wielding a saber.

Despite his status as an optional character, Amos is fully compatible with party chat in the remakes of VI. This greatly expands upon his personality. Amos will reveal after speaking with the queen of Howcastle that he was regarded as a coward in his early days, which drove him to grow stronger. He also has a bit of a fascination with royalty, and is always excited to meet the king and/or queen of any realms that the party visits.

In all localizations done by 8-4, Amos has a speech quirk where he will refer himself in the third person. This is presumably because of him being ignorant of normal speech conventions rather than any self-conceitedness.

Story

Warning: Spoilers
Click expand to view content
When the party arrives in Scrimsley, the townspeople make it clear that the party should leave town. After talking to some of the yokels, the party learns about Amos, who is the town's local hero. If the party stays at the inn, they will wake at night finding a monster attacking the town. When defeated, the monster is revealed to be Amos. In the morning, the party can go to Amos and if they tell him that he is periodically transforming into a monster, he will leave so that he will no longer threaten the lives of his contemporaries in town. However, if the party does not tell Amos about his condition and instead acquires the seeds of reason from the nearby mountain peak and makes him eat them, he will involuntarily transform. After the party seemingly engages his beastly in battle once more, Amos will reveal that he can shapeshift at will and returns to his normal form. He will then join the party, heading out of town to hop into the wagon.

Strangely, Amos will not be given an ending cinematic even if the player recruits him. He will be present at castle Somnia during the finale, however, and can be spoken to as with any other party member present.

Rank Antic
1 Merrily dances and sings!
2 Amos remembers a funny joke he heard once!

"Ha ha ha!"

Amos is laughing too hard to think about fighting right now!

≈≈≈

But it doesn't look anything like the enemy!

"Laaa la laaa..."

The enemy listens intensely to the song! The enemy is lost in Amos' sweet voice.

"(glug glug glug)...Hic!"
