Chief Adaro is an NPC in Dragon's Dogma.

The village Chief of Cassardis.


"The chief of Cassardis, he is beloved and trusted by all of the village folk thanks to his fine decision making abilities."

Adaro is chief of Cassardis, and adoptive father of both the Arisen and of Quina.

During the main quest Adaro is supportive and interested in the Arisen's progress, but apart from introducing the Arisen to the concept of Panw, he plays no great active role in the quest.


"At first glance, you would not guess that this short and stocky old man could be any threat. Yet get to know him and you will see why his ‘never say die’ defiant attitude transformed him from humble fisherman to one leading the charge against every village threat. His fighting abilities were unmatched as, weapon in hand, he boldly led the fighters of Cassardis against the gargantuan monstrosities that attacked the village. He openly shared his wealth of fishing and fighting skills with others, making the village of Cassardis not only prosperous, but also independent and completely self-sufficient in an attack. Thus, when the previous Village Chief passed away, there was no question that Adaro would be his successor.

But one day when you, his bravest fighter, returned deeply wounded after a battle with a monster, Adaro was furious with himself. He immediately resigned Cassardis’ autonomy to accept protection as a territory of Gran Soren. New laws and taxes were levied upon the village. This decision did not go over well with some, but when Adaro realized you were almost lost, nothing else mattered. For while he never sired children and you were an orphan, he considers you close as blood. Adaro sees a reflection of his younger self within your limitless potential. For even with his small form and humble beginnings, Adaro worked hard and became the greatest leader Cassardis has ever known.
