The Dragon (ドラゴン, doragon) is a secret vocation in Dragon Quest VI. It grants the character abilities associated with dragons, namely breath attacks. It is unlocked by having a character hold a Dragonic Diligence scroll when speaking with the abbot of Alltrades Abbey. However, Lizzie joins with the vocation already unlocked and does not require a scroll.
Becoming a dragon will turn even the scrawniest character into a raw powerhouse, supported by the best breath attacks in the game. Though there are substantial reductions to agility, wisdom, and MP, the straightforward nature of the vocation makes these cuts a moot point and especially so if the lightening-fast Milly takes up the position. Simply put, the dragon is an overwhelming brute force that should be kept as far from the wagon as possible at all times.
The one weakness the vocation bares is that it renders characters vulnerable to Dragon Slash.
Being a dragon increases the chance of catching enemies off-guard and rendering them unable to act for the first turn, with each rank multiplying the base chance by a certain degree.
