- The Hero (Village boy, or Prince of Somnia) (（村の少年→レイドック王子）): The 17 year old prince of Somnia. His parents were bound into slumber by the Dread Fiend Murdaw, and he left with Carver and Milly to defeat him. However, Murdaw has separated the prince's soul from his body, imprisoning the former in the upper world. In both the lower world and the upper world, the Prince lives in the village of Weaver's Peak. In the upper world he is the brother of Tania, while in the lower world he merely lives with her to convalesce. His real sister died of a childhood disease years ago. He cannot leave the party. He will find it much easier than any other party member to gain the Hero class. He is called Botsu in the manga.
- Carver (Traveling fighter, or Carpenter's son) (ハッサン （旅の武闘家→大工の息子）): The son of a carpenter in Port Haven, he leaves his home to travel to Castle Somnia. With the Hero and Milly, he left to battle Murdaw, and his soul was flung into the upper world, while his body was petrified and placed in Murdaw's castle. In the upper world, he is a traveling fighter, who volunteers to become a soldier at Somnia. He soon joins forces with the Hero. He hates carpentry, but his father taught him the art anyway. While his MP and agility are low, and his HP and strength are high.
- Milly (Mileyou, Muriel, or Mireyu in other localizations) also known as the Mysterious woman, or Terry's sister) (ミレーユ （謎の女性→テリーの姉さん）): She lives with her grandmother, the witch Luca. Once, she was sold to the Gandino crime family along with her brother Terry, in the town of Felonia. She uses her Gold Dragon Flute to infiltrate the castle of Murdaw. She appears to have already rejoined her body and soul by the time she joins the party in Port Haven. Her agility is high, as is her MP, but her HP is low. She gains healing and support spells.
- Ashlynn (Runaway child, later Scion of Sorceria) (バーバラ （家出娘→カルベローナの子）): A magician from the city of Sorceria, and a descendant of the great witch Barbarella. The Dread Fiend Gracos attacked the real city and sealed the upper world version of the city, where the souls of the inhabitants dwell. Like the other PCs, she is "invisible" (can only be seen as a ghostly shadow, and only by the PCs) in the lower world. To rectify this condition, she has traveled to the glass tower in search of the Mirror of Ra. She cannot leave the party. She has the highest MP, but has very low HP. She also has high Style; although not initially as high as Milly's, it increases faster and so will eventually overtake her's. She gains fire-based attack spells, and eventually gains Magic Burst.
- Nevan (Child of Ghent) (チャモロ （ゲント族）): He inherited healing powers from his grandfather, the Elder of Ghent. He wears glasses, and has a serious nature. He does not appear in the opening screens, but will join in the fight against Murdaw later on; he is the only one who can steer the holy ship, the Providence. He gains recovery spells and has the highest MP of any male character, but his stats are otherwise average. He can use a wide array of equipment, including slime armor. He levels at a slower rate than any of the other human party members.
- Terry (Wandering swordsman) (テリー （さすらいの剣士）) : "The Blue Spark" is the nickname of this swordsman. He is the brother of Milly, and a resident in Felonia. Terry attempted to rescue her from slavery; but having failed he now seeks to become the strongest warrior in the world. He meets the party several times, but never when Milly can see him, or vice versa. Eventually he enters into the service of the Dread Fiend Dhuran, but Milly will convince him to join the party after he is defeated in battle. He is a Gladiator , and has already mastered the Warrior class; but he has no experience in the Fighter class in the super famicom version. His combat statistics are all high, but his magic-related stats are low.
- Amos (Village hero) (アモス （村の英雄）): He is a kind-hearted and powerful warrior who defends the town of Scrimsly from monsters. When one of the monsters bit him, he now he turns into a monster himself at night. If the Hero can obtain the Seed of Reason, Amos will gain power over his transformations, and will be able to transform at will. If he is informed that he turns into a monster at night, he will leave the town and can no longer join the party. He does not appear during the ending montage, but is present for the victory celebration at castle Somnia. His graphics are the same as those of a soldier in the super famicom version, and posses a unique sprite in the DS remake.
- Lizzie (Drago) (ドランゴ): A Dragon-type monster (a Hacksaurus) defeated by Terry. She is sufficiently impressed at being defeated by Terry that she will join the party if Terry is a member; but she does not appear in the ending animation. All her stats are low at first, but her HP are unusually high, and increase faster at higher levels. Fittingly, she joins the party as a member of the dragon vocation. Since she accuses Terry of smashing her eggs, one may assume that Drango is female; also she is identified as female in Dragon Quest Monsters. Her Japanese name is an anagram of "dragon" (ドラゴン).
- Goober (Rookie) (ルーキー): A slime from the Slime Arena. The owner of the museum eventually is sufficiently impressed with the party's skills at the Slime Arena that he gives the party a "rookie" slime to train to a high level.
- Peggy Sue (Falchion) (ファルシオン): Peggy Sue is the upper world version of Pegasus, the legendary winged horse. The Archfiend Mortamor used his magic to petrify Pegasus's lower world body, and seal her soul in the upper world. She is rescued by Hassan and the Hero, shortly after they reach Somnia; they name her Peggy Sue.
- Evgenya (Geena) (ジーナ) and Ilya (イリア): A pair of thieves who desire the treasure in Amor's Northern Cave. Ilya has an ornament which increases her speed. They are aged in the lower world, but look much younger in the upper world, as they did when they traveled to the cave. As the story progresses, they die and are reborn as children in the upper world.
- Howard (Horus) (ホルス): Prince of the kingdom of Howcastle, the son of King Howie (ホルテン). He is a spoiled, cowardly child who cannot inherit the throne until he has proven his bravery through an ancestral rite of passage. King Howie asks the party to accompany him through the cavern of testing, and he gradually changes during the course of this quest. He is well-liked by the other children because they often work mischief together.
- Apnea (Shiela) (シェーラ): Queen of Somnia, mother of the hero. She is has been cursed by Murdaw to endure eternal sleep in the Lower World, and has been transformed into the young king of Somnia in the Upper World. Due to spending such a long time in the Upper World, she has forgotten her original identity. She does recognize the Hero as her son, even before he has recovered his body. After Murdaw is defeated, her upper world appearance is that of her much younger self.
- Tania (ターニア): A 16 year old girl who lives with you in Weaver's peak. Her parents passed away while she was young, and she has been living by herself before the events of the game.

She is saddened and confused when the Hero's spirit arrives and merges with his body.
- Buddy (Rand) (ランド): A youth who lives in Weaver's peak. In the lower world, he wishes to marry Tania. Buddy sees the Hero as an obstacle to his plans in the lower world, but he is on good terms with him in the upper world.
- Somnus/Reidock (レイドック): King of Somnia, father of the hero. He is of late middle age in the lower world, but retains his youth in the upper world. He left to battle Murdaw at the monster's keep, but was defeated; Murdaw imprisoned him in sleep in the Lower World, and disguised him as Murdaw in the Upper World. Both of his curses are broken by the Mirror of Ra after Murdaw is defeated in combat. After the defeat of Murdaw, his Upper World form is a younger version of himself (the same as the form of Apnea at the beginning of the game), and adopts a somewhat unscrupulous lifestyle.
- Rusty/Blade (Tom/Soldi)(トム), (ソルディ): Captain of Somnia's Army in both worlds. He is the first to vouch that the Hero is the returned prince of Somnia, but is sentenced to 'fall on his sword' when the hero cannot answer questions proving his claims, and is replaced by Franco.

- Keating/Geban (ゲバン): The chancellor of kingdom of Somnia in the lower world. Since the King and Queen are asleep, he runs the city on his own, and is disliked by the citizens for his outrageous tax hikes. He has the hero thrown out of the castle for "impersonating" the Prince, and orders the death of captain Rusty by way of sending him to the front lines.

With the help of the heroes, she is finally released from the mirror.
