I hate idiots...And those who borrow money and do not pay it back are the biggest idiots amongst idiots.

Heart Heater Vermillion Qeentharin,[6] more commonly known as just Heart Heater,[1] is a High-Level NPC that specialises in giving hidden and rare high-rank quests, rides blue dragons, and acts as a private money lender (loan shark) in Lucid Adventure. Together with his Assistant Rim, they serve Dark as his underlings.

Due to some unforeseen circumstance, he participated as a member of Dark's Party in the PvP Round. In the second season, Heart Heater helps Dark to run Dark Land's political affairs. During the Big 4 Guild Summit, Heart Heater represented Dark Land and dueled Xiang Yu of Giga to decide the leader of the Players' Union. Despite being critically wounded by Xiang Yu, Heart Heater defeated his opponent thanks to the intervention of the Dragon of Evil. Heart Heater is currently serving as one of the four strategists of the Players' Union.

Heart Heater is a tall man with jade green hair and bright red eyes with a downward scar underneath his right eye and eyepatch covering his left eye. Throughout the journey, he wore a blue suit vest with white long sleeved collar tee underneath, blue pants, orange necktie and shoes. He also wore a blue coat draped around his shoulders but removes it during battle.

Two years later, nothing much changed on his appearance but his hair is now styled into a slicked back and his eye patch no longer had a strap.

In the past, Heart Heater still had his left eye and didn't have a scar. He also wore sleeveless brown leather armor over his white long sleeved shirt and a brown leather waist armor. Somewhere down the line however, he had grown long green hair and had gotten the scar. He had dragon-shaped shoulder plates with a gauntlet on the left side. He wore a tattered coat over dragon plated armor, black dragon plate leg armor and boots. He had lost his left eye at that time when the Dragon of Evil took it.


Being the descendant of a Noble family, Heart Heater has always carried himself in a well-mannered, exemplary fashion befitting his noble origins. He doesn't use any profanity and is usually extremely calm and collected in most situations.

His most notable trait, however, is his lust for money, rivaling that of Hardcore Leveling Warrior's. To Heart Heater, money is far more valuable than even life and he would rather die than write off a debtors debt.[7] He even sees wars as nothing more than an opportunity to make a fortune.[8] Even when he was threatened by an Ancient Dragon, Heart Heater still tried to make a deal.[9] He is also never late in asking back for money he is owed.[10]

He hates idiots, especially the ones that don't pay back the money they borrowed from him.[10] He nails the fingers of those who have not paid him back on a wall in his Quest House, showing his ruthless side.[10]

Heart Heater's favorite tea is Earl Grey and he can be seen drinking it on several occasions in the series.[11] He also likes to eat candy and can be seen eating it from his brown pocket pouch.[12]
