Wess is a character in Mother 3. He is the father of Duster, another man from Tazmily Village. After Duster steals the wrong artifact from Osohe Castle during Wess' test, Wess joins him to return to Osohe as a guide, ensuring that Duster this time confiscates the right object. He usually uses Thunder Bombs as his primary offense in battle. He is playable again during the third chapter, when the party attempts to rescue Salsa from Fassad.
Some time after the modernization of Tazmily, Wess' house was torn down to build a rest home, where Wess is forced to stay. Possibly because of this, the townspeople treat Wess as an old man, and make comments on his balding hair.
