DQV Dwight.png
Title Son of a Dwarf
Race Dwarf

Dwight is a delinquent Dwarf and a boss in Dragon Quest V. He steals the magical flute, the Herald of Spring, on behalf of the Winter Queen. After defeating both of them, Dwight accepts defeat and returns home to his father, while the Hero returns the Herald to Treacle.


The little runt suffers a prolonged cold and speaks through sniffles and sneezes. He has a large chip on his shoulder and disrespects authority, hence his being easily swayed by the evil queen. His appearance is a homage to an infamous bandit of old.
