I was surprised to see this guy apparently didn't have a thread yet, so I decided to go and make one for conveniences' sake.
Who is this guy?
The Luminary is the protagonist of the newest Dragon Quest title in the series, Dragon Quest XI. He is the latest in the long-line of traditional protagonists who embark on a long, daring journey where they both end up saving the world from some powerful evil overlord and discover a shocking revelation about their past heritage. In this case, he's the reincarnation of an ancient hero, Yggdrasil's Chosen One, who has to fulfill his long-awaited destiny after having reached his sixteenth birthday.
Why should he be in Smash?
Dragon Quest is one of the most influential RPGs of all time! It's games have had a far-reaching impact on the video game industry and the RPG genre in particular, standing alongside Final Fantasy as Square Enix's two titan franchises.
But besides that, Dragon Quest XI is proving itself to be another successful title in the series, having currently sold over four million copies worldwide. It's success in North America is also nothing to sneeze at; it's release was the biggest launch in DQ's history, having doubled DQIX's numbers. So suffice it to say, Dragon Quest XI has definitely earned its place.
What could he bring to the table?
The Luminary is a Magic Knight, being a swordsman with magical abilities (which mostly specialize in the Zap spell families), but he could also dual-wield swords if need be. He could also learn healing spells that could be translated over to Smash as him restoring healing points slightly (with the caveat being that it has a long casting time).
