Dogi (ドギ) is Adol Christin's long-time companion and best friend, the blue-haired kindly giant with a knack for crushing walls (or boulders) with his bare hands. Introduced as a thief who breaks Adol out of prison in the first Ys, he has become Adol's traveling companion in the majority of the series.
Dogi's the name, and wall-crushing's my game. Pleased to meet ya'! ~ Dogi
Dogi is first mentioned as a member of Goban Tovah's group of thieves who had entered the Darm Tower. Later in the game, Adol enters Darm Tower himself and gets caught in a magical trap that teleports him into a prison cell without any exit. Shortly after, Dogi crushes the wall of the prison cell and frees Adol, marking the first time the two meet. Dogi tells Adol to look for Raba, a wise old man who knows the Darm Tower, and to return an idol that Raba lost.
In the prologue of Ys VI, Adol and Dogi are approached by the pirate Captain Ladoc while resting in Ediz. Ladoc tells them of the Canaan Islands, which are surrounded by a mysterious Vortex which makes approaching the islands impossible. Adol and Dogi agree to board Ladoc's ship, the Tres Mares, and to explore the Canaan Islands together. However, they get attacked by the Romun Fleet and Adol is thrown over board. Dogi and the crew of the Tres Mares manage to escape the Romun attack by fleeing into the Great Vortex of Canaan. Though the Tres Mares is heavily damaged, they successfully pass through the Vortex and dock at the Sunrise Inlet on the eastern shore of Canaan Island.
While looking for resources to repair their ship, Dogi busts open a blocked path, which connects the Sunrise Inlet to the Limewater Cave. Coincidentally, this was right after Adol had reached the end of the Limewater Cave and the two reunited once again. Dogi then goes to Port Rimorge with Adol, Ladoc and Terra both to obtain resources and because he heard from Adol that Raba is now living there.
Later, while Adol and Terra are rescuing the Rehda who were kidnapped by the Romun soldiers, Dogi and Ladoc go to the Zemeth Sanctum to rescue Isha from Ernst. Though the two manage to incapacitate all of Ernsts soldiers, Ernst releases the final seal on the Ark of Napishtim, which forces them to retreat back to Port Rimorge.
In the end Dogi, Adol and the crew of the Tres Mares return towards Eresia.
In Alternative Saga, Dogi is a formidable opponent in the right hands, having by far the highest endurance of all the characters and surprisingly high power. While he's dreadfully slow, his strength combined with the usefulness and sheer power of his skills makes him a good choice for moderate to skilled players.
