Duston (ダストン, Dasuton) is a character in Dragon Quest X. He is an oddball who is said to value junk more than life itself. He is a party member in the Offline version of the game.

In battle, his weapons of choice are Hammers, Whips, and Knives, and he is able to equip Shields. He possesses a peculiar mix of abilities from many vocations, allowing him to support his allies and debuff enemies.

Appearance and Character[edit]

Duston is a Dwarven man with the dark olive green skintone characteristic of his race, a round nose, and shaggy brown hair that reaches to his shoulders. He wears white face paint underneath his eyes and on his ears. On his head, he wears a horned Viking-style helmet that always has a green lizard dozing away on top. He wears an orange-brown short-sleeved tunic with a green collar around his neck and a yellow cravat, long trousers, a belt around his waist, and a pair of sandals.

He is only interested in useless junk, disliking things that are useful. Duston is shunned by the locals of Gatara due to his large collection of junk, but he doesn't care about his reputation at all.


Dragon Quest X[edit]

He is the lord of the Junk Castle in Mountain City Gatara. He collects junk with the help of his assistant Potsukon and eventually appoints the Hero as his new assistant. Sixteen years ago, Duston took in an abandoned infant Dwarf girl and raised her as his daughter. However, the two of them had a major falling out and she eventually ran away from home.
