Psaro the Manslayer is the central villain of Dragon Quest IV: Chapters of the Chosen and a recurring monster in the series. He is a powerful demon with a passionate hatred for humanity. During his rise to evil, Psaro attempted to kill the hero, sought the secret of evolution, and searched for the resting place of Estark, Ruler of Evil.
Towards the end of the game, Aamon has Psaro's lover, Rose, murdered, causing Psaro to go insane. He loses what little inhibition Rose had given him and uses the Secret of Evolution to transform into a monster, destroying his personality as an unavoidable side-effect. The only thing he remembers is his desire to destroy humanity. However, before he can unleash his worst, the Hero confronts and defeats him, saving the world. However, once you beat Foo Yung and Chow Mien, there will be an event following with Rose coming back to life and Psaro joining your team.
