Great game, I have a question. Who is the ninth playable player? I have Soldier, Cook, Scout, Smith, Healer, Fairy, Wizard and Dragon. Is it the dragon knight? If so, how so you get him? And who will be the final wave boss, because I know it changes when I got dragon on my second playthrough.

You have found all of the characters. The ninth one is the one you start with, the Commander :) 

As for the final wave boss, there are 3 different variations. You are correct, it changes if you recruit the dragon. There is another condition in the game that will trigger a third boss.

Thanks for playing, glad you are enjoying it.

I'm guessing if it's when you kill/sacrifice the wizard? Again great game.
