The leader of the mercenaries, Dagran is an exceptionally driven and capable individual, be it on the battlefield or while negotiating with potential employees. His actions and drive have earned him the full trust and respect of his team. Dagran met and recruited Zael at a young age and, through time, has become like an older brother to Zael. - Instruction Manual
Dagran (Quark in the Japanese version) is Zael's best friend in the game. He is a young man just like Zael. Dagran has fought along with Zael throughout the continent, wanting to pursue the dream of a better life by becoming a knight. In the past, Dagran has promised Zael to make sure they both become knights. He is initially the tritagonist, but later becomes the secondary antagonist and the mandatory penultimate boss after it is revealed that he's been working with Zangurak to recreate the world for personal revenge.
BackgroundEditDagran is a young mercenary and the leader of the band of mercenaries he and Zael started. He met Zael on the streets of a city after Zael's village was burned down. Dagran suggested they should travel together, as his village burned down as well, and he felt this commonality could motivate them to work hard. Dagran's village was burnt down by a group of Lazulis Knights working for the continent, but one knight went overboard and killed everybody there, including Dagran's family, leaving him alone in the world. Throughout the events of the game, he eventually finds out that the one to take the blame was a man named Asthar. Because of this, he set out on his adventure, starting a band of mercenaries and wishing to take revenge for his family one day. That's when he meets Zael and they start their journey to become knights, but he kept secret his real intentions.
During the course of the story, Dagran acts as more than just the leader of the mercenaries. He also cares about them and treats them as a family. During the events of the game, he gives the leadership of the group to Zael. Although being very close, he starts distancing himself from the mercenaries, disappearing in some occasions without explaining. He's a smooth talker and was able to convince the Count of Zael's innocence while on trial, and gain his favor. Fueled by his deep-rooted lust for revenge, he kills General Asthar during one of the Gurak attacks to Lazulis Castle and frames Jirall for the murder (he later confesses to Zael). However, killing the General was not enough. His hatred and lust for power and revenge completely consumes him, transforming him into a dark shadow of his former self.
When Zael fights Therius at the end of the game the second time, Therius tells him that General Asthar took the responsibility for the knight that went overboard and killed countless innocent people in Dagran's village, because as their leader he felt the blame should rest solely on him.
