The '''Hero''' of {{DQ8}} is a 18-year old low-ranking royal guardsman at [[Trodain|Castle Trodain]], before becoming a refugee of the kingdom in the prologue. He was one of the small band who survived [[Dhoulmagus]]' deadly attack, along with [[Trode|King Trode]], [[Princess Medea]] and his pet mouse, {{Munchie}}. As is the series' tradition, The Hero is a silent protagonist whom the player is meant to project themselves upon, using him as an avatar to explore and interact with the game's world.

The Hero is a versatile character, as equally proficient in armed combat as he is in using healing spells and support magic. His preferred weapons are {{Swords}}, {{Spears}} and {{Boomerangs}}. Once Rank E of the [[Monster Arena]] is cleared, he will gain the ability to call upon a monster team at the cost of 10 {{MP}}. Each monster team can only be summoned once per battle. With the help of his trusty companion Munchie and a variety of cheeses, he is also able to unleash [[List of cheeses in Dragon Quest VIII|breath attacks]] with various effects.

In contrast to heroes of previous games, this Hero dresses very casually and historically coherent, wearing a saffron overcoat with a blue tunic, simple red bandana, and plain grey trousers with brown boots. He is also the second Hero in the series whose outfit can be changed in the game if he wears certain pieces of equipment.

{{Spoiler|start}}He is the son of [[Eltrio]] and [[Xia]], making him half-[[human]] and half-[[Dragovian]]. This union came about when the latter became curious of the human world, and decided to explore it. After encountering Eltrio, Xia fell in love with the young man and spent much time with him. Unfortunately, her father Chen Mui did not approve of the joining of human and Dragovian, feeling that the two races could never develop true love between them, and forced his daughter back to the Dragovian Sanctuary. Some time after this, the body of Eltrio was found near the sanctuary's outskirts, having braved the immense dangers alone to reach his beloved. The death of her loved devastated Xia, and day by day her very life force began to fade. Before joining Eltrio in the afterlife, however, Xia delivered their child in the sanctuary. The boy would live among the Dragovians for several years as the council of elders debated what to do with the anomaly, until one day it was decided that his memories would be sealed, and that he would be banished from his people. His grandfather, realizing the youth was his last connection to his daughter, begged for permission to accompany his grandson. It was decided that he could do so, but only if he took the form of a innocuous mouse, and never spoke a word to him.
