From Dragon Quest Wiki

"Once the master and commander of the armies of Heliodor, Hendrik's unwavering loyalty was expertly exploited by the monstrous Mordegon. These days, he is the hero of the people of the Last Bastion thanks to his tireless efforts in securing their safety. His beard is his little homage to King Carnelian's fantastic facial hair. "

Hendrik (グレイグ, Gureigu) is a character from Dragon Quest XI.

He is the general of the Kingdom of Heliodor. Despite his antagonism towards the Luminary and his traveling companions early in the game, Hendrik eventually has a change of heart and joins the party as the Luminary's sworn shield.

In combat, Hendrik is capable of wielding both one-handed Swords and Greatswords, as well as Axes and can even dual wield one-handed Swords and Axes.

Appearance and Personality[edit]

Hendrik is a tall and powerfully built man with sharp features and blue-green eyes. He has shoulder-length light purple hair with a single strand hanging over the left side of his face, as well as a goatee. Hendrik was born in the kingdom of Zwaardsrust, which was founded by the legendary Warrior King Drustan. He has fond memories of his birthplace before its destruction. As Heliodor's general, he wears an ornate suit of black knight's armor decorated with gold edges over chainmail, black gauntlets over leather gloves, black trousers, and black greaves worn over a tall pair of black leather boots. There is an insignia of a golden two-headed eagle, the symbol of Heliodor, emblazoned on the front of his breastplate. He wears a long black cape with red lining, which is attached to his armor and he carries a two-handed sword on his back in a scabbard. The golden two-headed eagle is also embroidered on the back of Hendrik's cape.

When he joins the party, Hendrik eschews his black knight's armor, instead wearing a long padded tabard quartered sky blue and dark blue over a yellow turtleneck sweater, black trousers, and a pair of tall leather boots. He also wears a pair of leather gloves, and two leather belts, one around his waist and the other across his chest. His armor was designed by Jasper, his fellow knight. Like the other party members, he is able to change his appearance with a variety of different costumes, including being able to wear his old Heliodorian set of armor.

Hendrik is known for his strong sense of duty and loyalty to the kingdom of Heliodor, and he is unrivaled in swordsmanship. He has defeated countless monsters in the service of his kingdom and is willing to lay down his life to protect his liege. He is childhood friends with both Jasper and Jade and spent his youth training in Puerto Valor under the tutelage of Don Rodrigo alongside Sylvando. Hendrik was shocked to discover that his fellow trainee had become a traveling performer rather than a knight like himself. According to Sylvando, Hendrik was not innately talented in swordsmanship and trained diligently day and night in order to achieve his skill. His daily routine is training and walking with his horse, Obsidian, a large jet-black stallion.[1] He relieves stress by reading books, which he often does around the campfire.

Despite his serious personality, Hendrik is secretly a connoisseur of the Ogler's Digest series of magazines, much like Rab. His favorite thing about himself is his facial hair, which he grew in imitation of King Carnelian. Hendrik's favorite type of food is any kind of mushroom and his prized possessions are his token of fealty and the Shield of Heliodor. The thing he wants most is a new whetstone. He is allergic to cats and has trouble with insects. Hendrik has trouble imagining what life would be like not being a knight. But if peace is achieved, he would like to settle down in a small village and raise a field of wheat, something which always reminds him of his birthplace.

Hendrik's Japanese name, Graig, is a variation on the name Greg, itself is a shortened form of the English name Gregory. It is the English form of the Latin Gregorius, from the Late Greek name Γρηγόριος (Gregorios), which meant "watchful, alert". This is fitting as Hendrik's role as both the general of Helidior and as the sworn shield of the Luminary. Hendrik is the Dutch and Estonian cognate of the English name Henry. Henry is derived from the Germanic name Heinrich which meant "home ruler".


  • In the international fan poll for Dragon Quest XI that was released by Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu, Hendrik was ranked the sixth most popular character in the game, with a total of 280 votes.
  • He is the tallest member of the party at 200 cm, or roughly 6 feet and 6 inches tall, and he weighs 95 kg, or 209 pounds.
  • When Hendrik is afflicted by Sultry Dance, he performs a traditional Ondō dance from Zwaardsrust which he learned from his father. It is a lively summer festival dance where he claps his hands and swings around his arms. The dance is similar to a Tankō Bushi dance, which can be performed at the Japanese Buddhist festival of Obon.
  • It is unknown what possible blood relation Hendrik has with Drustan, but it is likely that he is Drustan's descendant as the two have a near identical physical appearance and Hendrik is able to equip the Warrior King's armor and use his armaments.
  • Each of the Luminary's companions represents one of the classes in Dragon Quest III. Hendrik represents the Warrior. His spells reflect the common practice of having a Warrior spend time as a Priest for greater utility.
