Rōmaji Duran
Title Dread Fiend

Dhuran is a demon boss first encountered in Dragon Quest VI: Realms of Revelation, and is a recurring monster throughout the Dragon Quest series.


Dhuran resembles a well-built male humanoid with a reddish skintone. He wears a dark, simple, iron-like armor that doesn't cover much of its body. This attire is completed with an indigo cape. He also wields a double-bladed weapon. This weapon is similar to its armor and has a black handgrip and two sharp, dark blades in each extreme.


Dhuran is one of the Dread Fiends, and is the fourth one encountered. It is the seal on Cloudsgate Citadel, having transformed it into its own flying castle.

After the Hero and his party defeated the Stormsgate Citadel, Dhuran ordered his minions to let them in without conflict. Upon their entry into the throne room, he stated his surprise that they were able to gather the legendary equipment needed to reach the castle and tests their strength with an Überkilling machine & an Iron tortoise.

They beat the minions, prompting Dhuran to put Terry (who offered his soul to him in exchange for power) against them. They succeeded in defeating Terry, resulting in Dhuran healing them so that he can fight them at their best.

Upon his defeat, Dhuran confessed that he, along with Murdaw, Jamirus and Gracos are merely minions of of Mortamor the Archfiend. He told them that they will have to become much stronger to take the Archfiend down, and hopes that he and the Hero can meet in the next life to do battle once more.
