Ok, I just wanna see what people have to say about this one. In RPG's or any other game can you think of a hero where the story just completely and repeatedly craps on the hero? Mine is Dragon Quest V
the hero starts his life traveling the world who was kidnapped at birth with his father. Shortly after starting to settle down and make friends he's immediately uprooted to meet a total snot of a prince. Next after the prince is kidnapped he witnesses his father's murder before his very eyes and then spends the next 10 years or so in a labor camp.
Finally after a bit things start to look up for him but it's short lived. After getting married and having 2 children his wife gets kidnapped then the both of them get turned to living stone(can see and think but is a stone statue) then taken to some random island in the world. after 8 years gets released by his kids and discovers that his mother still lives but later on is killed. I know he's a silent protagonist hero that is pretty normal for DQ games but holy crap!
Can anyone else think of any other heroes like that?
Sorry in advance if this spoils things for DQV players I didn't know how to make it a spoiler ><

I know what you mean! I played the game, and the character had a truly miserable life. No idea why he didn't even get mad about it :). would've been funny to see if it actually happened too *shakes fist at makers for not including it*. Can't think of any other games off the top of my head like that, though.
