Sancho is a permanent ally in Dragon Quest V. He joins the party at the start of Chapter 3.
Sancho very much fits the archetype of the friendly and loyal servant. Even as he speaks in a pronounced Castilian Spanish accent, he is much respectful of those he serves, including Pankraz and the other members of the Gothan royal family, and is thus extremely formal toward them. From the start of the game, he has been charged with keeping the Hero from harm as well as tending to his needs in Pankraz's place while the latter is occupied with other business.
Little else is revealed until the Hero's return ten years later, when Sancho reacts with profound emotion upon their first encounter since the events in Whealbrook; he is overcome with joy when he recognizes the Hero (and Bianca, if she was the chosen bride). He is one of the first to express worry when the bride collapses from sheer exhaustion, and the first to gather intel on her health, which he then relays to the Hero. Sancho again reacts with great joy during the coronation and subsequent birth of the Hero's children; and once more with deep concern when the bride goes missing, He retains his desire to serve through every one of the game's major events; yet more than this, he holds the royal family as close as friends, and so will go to whatever lengths he can to ensure its success and happiness.
