Mystvearn, originally known simply as Myst, is a major character and antagonist in Dragon Quest: The Adventure of Dai. He is a mysterious being who is the most devoted follower of the Dark King Vearn. Mystvearn serves as the commander of the Shadow Legion, a group of monsters that lack physical bodies, such as Shadows and Miasmas.


Mystvearn commonly takes on the appearance of shadowy, wraith-like being covered by the Shadow Raiment, a long white robe trailing along the ground that disguises his true appearance. A pair of eyes can be seen glowing from the darkness of his hood. He wears a set of metallic gauntlets and sabatons, although his limbs are completely obscured from view. A glowing orb can be seen inside of his robes where his chest would be located. His robe has a high collar and he wears a pointed red pelerine over his shoulders featuring a design of Dark King Vearn on the back. Both the ends of his sleeves and the hem of his robe feature a repeating design similar to the Roman numeral I or a capitalized iota. His robe is held together with a large golden necklace decorated with red jewels and he has a golden tippet hanging from his shoulders which reaches down to the tops of his sabatons.
