Jasper is a major antagonist in Dragon Quest XI.

He is known as the cold-blooded strategist of the Kingdom of Heliodor, and menaces the Luminary through out his journey.

Appearance and Personality[edit]

Jasper is an attractive man with angular facial features. He has fair skin, small yellow eyes, and chin-length light blond hair with some of the fringe covering the right side of his face and a long ponytail that goes down to his waist. He also wears a pair of red studs as earrings. He has an unconscious tendency to play with his front bangs and his favorite thing about himself is his hair. Jasper wears an ornate suit of silver and gold knight's armor over chainmail, white trousers, silver gauntlets over a pair of white gloves, and silver greaves over white knee-high leather boots. Attached to his armor is a long white cape with red lining that reaches down to his feet. Emblazoned on the front of his armor's breastplate and the back of his cape is a golden two-headed eagle, which is the symbol of Heliodor. In concept art, Jasper looked older and his hair was slicked back with a single forelock hanging in front of his face.

Jasper is a ruthless tactician and is skilled in the art of war. He is known for his accurate judgement and decisiveness and has achieved many victories due to his skill, such as securing victory against a large army of monsters with only a small force. However, he is also an immensely cruel and evil man who will stoop to such vile actions as cursing a child and imprisoning a city with the help of an ancient witch, just to achieve his goals. These goals are, in truth, to aid Mordegon in his plot.

Jasper is childhood friends with Hendrik, both undergoing knighthood training at the same time, but Jasper bears a jealous streak towards him for being more well-liked, to the point that he wishes to see his 'friend' dead. His prized possession is his token of fealty.[1] At the time when Hendrik was off learning chivalry and swordsmanship in Puerto Valor, Jasper was studying magic at the Royal Library in Sniflheim, where he first came into contact with the witch Krystalinda. He is very meticulous and a perfectionist when it comes to his personal appearance, which draws the attention of many women.


Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age[edit]

Jasper has served King Carnelian of Heliodor from a young age, but he was originally born to a noble family that has fallen on hard times. Even before becoming a knight, Jasper was distinguished by his intelligence and was known as a prodigy. He entered his training to be a knight at the same time as Hendrik, and the two became fast friends. After discovering a secret entrance into King Carnelian's chambers from the castle kitchen and being reprimanded by the sovereign for their mischief, the two swore an oath to protect the kingdom from invaders at all costs. The two would continue their training into their teenage years, with Jasper focusing on the magical arts over swordsmanship, until the fateful day that Dundrasil was assailed by the forces of Mordegon.

Jasper was mobilized to defend the castle alongside Hendrik and saved the lives of many civilians, but his bravery was ignored outright by King Carnelian while Hendrik was promoted to general of the Heliodorian knights. This neglect sowed the seeds of darkness in Jasper's heart, with bitter envy driving him to secretly loathe his former friend for being praised with adulation while he was forgotten--little did either knight realize that King Carnelian had in fact been possessed by Mordegon during the battle of Dundrasil, and that the sorcerer deliberately drove Jasper to the shadows to create an exploitable pawn to be used when the Luminary finally came of age. The blackness in Jasper's heart would grow as the years passed until he began to feel more kinship with the denizens of the dark than with his own kind, but he maintained the facade of being Hendrik's comrade in arms and a respectable knight of valor to the public of Heliodor. In secret, Jasper would learn of Mordegon possessing Carnelian and conspire with him to bring about the age of darkness.

He first comes into contact with the Luminary when the king holds audience with him at Heliodor Castle, where the young man is declared to be the Darkspawn and an enemy to the kingdom. King Carnelian then orders Jasper to put the village of Cobblestone to the torch. It is revealed later that Jasper intended to kill all the villagers as well, but Hendrik stepped in and put a stop to it, sparing their lives.

Dragon Quest of the Stars[edit]

He appears in the Japanese version of the game as a boss, under both his human and monster forms. His human form can only be encountered in the XI event, while his "unbound" form can be fought at any time as long as the player has a Jasper Key.

As a boss, Unbound Jasper does strong Zap, Zam and Dark Breath type attacks, and can topple the heroes. Jasper resists the same attributes he excels in, and is weak to Bang-type attacks. Upon defeat, Unbound Jasper drops his token of fealty, a 5-star accessory that reduces the Zam and Dark Breath type damage taken, as well as the chances of getting toppled.

Like in Hendrik's case, Jasper's armor and wig can be obtained as 5-star gacha items. His dual platinum swords are also obtainable on select gacha banners, and they change the character's stance if no shield is equipped or visible.

Dragon Quest Rivals[edit]

Jasper has appeared on several cards, first appearing as a three-star rarity card in the third card pack, "Phoenix and the Life of the Earth" alongside Hendrik and Mordegon.

Dragon Quest Walk[edit]

Dragon Quest Keshi Keshi[edit]

Jasper appears in the third part of the Dragon Quest XI event, as the boss in the final level in Gondolia. He can be scouted in the secret level in the area.

Final Fantasy Brave Exvius[edit]

As part of a collaborative event to celebrate the release of the Definitive Edition of Dragon Quest XI, Jasper appeared in his Unbound form as a summonable vision in late 2019.


Jasper's name in international versions of the game, like several other characters, shares his name with a gemstone. Jasper is an opaque variety of the gemstone chalcedony and comes in many different varieties and colors. In the ancient world, jasper was a highly valued stone and is widely mentioned in Persian, Hebrew, Greek, and other cultures. As a male given name, Jasper is derived from the Latin Gaspar, which has traditionally been one of the names assigned to one of the Three Wise Men or Magi who were said to have visited the newborn Jesus. It has been used as a name since the Middle Ages.

Jasper's Japanese name, Homeros, is the Ancient Greek form (Ὅμηρος) of the name Homer and means "hostage, pledge". Homer was a Greek poet who wrote the "Iliad" and the "Odyssey" and is believed to have lived sometime during 8th century B.C. There is some scholarly debate as to whether he actually existed or not.


  • Jasper's height is 175cm or 5' 9" and he weighs 65 kilograms.
  • His favorite food are fruit sandwiches (フルーツサンド), a Japanese dessert that consists of fresh seasonal fruit and whipped cream between two slices of bread.
  • He is seen dual wielding two Platinum swords in battle, similar to Tegram, a minor character from Dragon Quest X. By the time of his victory at the World Tree on Mordegon's behalf, he is wielding only one Platinum sword, having left the other in his quarters.
  • The baroque clothing that Jasper wears in his humanoid unbound state is reminiscent of Psaro the Manslayer's own outfit.
  • He relieves stress by taking vacation in Puerto Valor.
  • As a Spectral Sentinel, he would embody Envy since they have a "Seven Deadly Sins" theme. As the game plot explains, this is evident in his lust for power borne of an inferiority complex.
