The Diliphio with the name of Dil'inne'Dry, often simply name Dil is a native to the world of Zevia- a planet in the south of Quadrant 21. The first native Zevian to leave his homeworld, Dil became a notorious smuggler, often being drawn into important events as he himself likes to claim, he was there at the wrong place at the wrong time!

Dil is a kind and humble person, though when on his bad side, you have a problem! He eventually joined the Ramboidae Navy as a crewmember working in the engineering department, on his own claims to explore the galaxy. While others think it was to hide from his debts as a smuggler at the criminal organisation known as the Syndicate.


Life on Zevia[]

Born in an unknown time (he himself doesn't remembers it anymore) in the swamps of Zevia he became a nomad like his family. During his childhood he grew bitter at the other saurien species who seemed to have it that great in their grand city in the middle of the swamp. He once tried to visit it but wasn't welcome.

Life as smuggler[]

At Carnthedain, 2804

Since then, growing bored of the swamps and having an urge to explore he left his nomad tribe and went beyond the swamps. As such Dil'inne became one of the few Zevians who went travelling among the stars when he encountered a lone explorer who took him onboard his ship. The unknown explorer brought him to a nearby planet where Dil soon learned to have a nose for stealing and trading. As such he became a gifted trader and burglar, with a nose for danger and value and is often involved in more criminal dealings. During one of his travels he met the Serindia Riordan Rambertan. Though only those two know what really happened upon their meeting- the two gained a mutual respect and rivalry for eachother. During his travels he managed to acquire a Serindia Gwylliöen-class freighter which he dubbed the Zevian.

Around the fifth month of 2804 (06AQF/02 NE) Diliphio found himself at Kreeta trading various goods with the New Rambo Resistance when they came under attack by the Empire. During the flight he managed to escape with aid of S'Rell and Claire- whom he later brought to the Rambo Capital. There he recieved a payment for his aid and left afterwards. He later travelled to Carnthedain to fill in a favor for Riordan Rambertan and aided him in saving Ramashe and the Carnthedain elves.

Dil'inne and Chen at Arcaniox

Eventually he was rewared by the Empress and Claire onboard the Suiliagothrond II with a large sum of money. Happily he soon left for smuggling matters and he was to plan a long holiday at a sunny place, that turned out to be Karzhamarhi-Nui. During the 10th month of 2805 (07 AQF), Dil'inne'Dry aligned himself with the re-formed Syndicate and became one of its smugglers. In July of 2806 (08 AQF), during the events known as the Torments of Arcaniox he was present upon the invasion of Arcaniox by the Hutter Kingdom. Accepting a bad deal, Dil'inne tried to escape the planet though promised to take the Ragashota Elder, Chen Whitesnout with him to the Rambo trade port Ramaakota. Once there, he got in an argument the local enforcers who wanted to inspect his cargo, angering the dinosaur and claiming they discriminated him.

Unknown to him, Chen's niece, Ya-Li smuggled herself onboard and travelled to Ramaakota as well.
