Carver (Hassan in the original Japanese) is a playable character found in Dragon Quest VI. He is the first to join the hero, and the two of them work together to capture a horse, which is then used to pull the party's cart.
Appearance and Personality
Carver is a mountain of a man, towering over most characters. He wears a grey open vest along with a turquoise-colored pair of shorts, and an orange sash lengthened by a piece of rope. Over his shorts, he wears a light-green mawashi, a type of loincloth similar to the ones worn by sumo wrestlers in real life. He also wears black shoes with a pair of light-green socks. Coupled with his purple mohawk, Carver's appearance is among the most distinct in the game.
Despite his intimidating build, Carver is a kind and friendly man, and starts a friendship with the Hero soon after they meet. Almost always jovial, Carver does his best to stay positive in darker moments, and tries to keep the mood light with a quick joke or a pun. A bit of a braggart, Carver thinks highly of himself and isn't afraid to accept any praises from villagers for the group's good deeds.
