This article is about the player character in all five Quest for Glory games. There are many options in each game which may change details throughout the series, and many of these are based on the player's class. It should be noted that the Hero can have any name the player chooses, Devon Aidendale is simply the name canonized by the strategy guide.*Devon Aidendale is the single greatest Hero the lands of Gloriana have ever known.
Devon was raised in the town of Willowsby, where he dreamt of becoming a Hero much to his parents protests. Despite this, they ultimately allowed Devon to train as an adventurer. He became a student of Famous Adventurer's Correspondence School. He began to frequent the local Adventurers Guild in hopes of finding work for an aspiring Hero. It was there he spied the Hero Wanted Flyer for Spielburg Valley. Noticing that no experience was necessary, Devon set off to the west. He arrived in Spielburg just before an avalanche closed off the valley.
For the rest of his history, please see The Hero's main article.
Devon is a Paladin who saved Erana from Hades. He led the attack on the Dragon of Doom, which was won without anyone sacrificing themself.

- *"Our main objection to the Spiese book is that the Quest for Glory hero is supposed to be a reflection of the player. When Paula named her hero as Devon Aidendale, that became canon. We would have preferred he remain simply The Hero. But that's a trivial quibble."-Corey Cole
It should be noted that the player can choose any name for their Hero.
