What do you call a person who craves danger? Like how a person who believes that the pursuit of pleasure is the most important thing in life is known as a hedonist.

A person with a compulsive desire for excitement and adventure:

As NVZ says, daredevil sure is the word for that. But here are other choices for you: Swashbuckler

Someone who engages in daring adventures.

Also, I think risk-taker would probably replace that, because it means someone who loves taking risks.

The adjective would be dauntless

To show fearlessness and determination.
