Dario is the Chibi Star in Suikoden IV.
He is also a playable character in Suikoden Tactics.



Dario is a short, stout pirate who spends most of his time at the Nest of Pirates getting drunk, taking care of his son, Nalleo, or annoying Lady Kika.

Although Dario acts a bit nutty, he has a kind and loyal heart and has earned the trust of Kika and the pirates. He claims to have taught Hervey and Sigurd everything they know. He can also understand Gau's language.




Suikoden IVEdit

Long ago, Louise put little Nalleo in Dari's care and disappeared. He raised Nalleo as his own child and teach him the way of a pirate. When Edgar dies at the hand of the pirate Steele, Dario consoles a grieving to Kika who kneels down at the make-shift coffin provided by an ashamed Brandeau.

Before the Island Liberation War, he is known to pick fights with the Gaien Knights, approaching Razro and his companions and engaging them in naval battles thrice. During the second battle, when Dario and his band of pirates were menacing Razril, Commander Glen Cott used the Rune of Punishment to wipe them out, ultimately resulting into Glen's death. It was only after the third naval battle with Razro and his companions that Kika approached him and told him to behave himself.

During the Island Liberation War, he joined Razro along with Kika, Hervey, Sigurd and Nalleo. Under Kika's request he help Lazlo to recruit Elenor Silverberg. After the war, he set Nalleo up with his own operation and dedicates the rest of his own life in Kika's service.

Suikoden TacticsEdit

At the Fall of Kooluk, together with Nalleo, he joined Kika and Kyril's group to search for Rune Cannons. While he was with Kyril's group, he usually stole food from communal food ration and often snatch Hervey's and his son's dinner and he ended up being scolded by Kika. After the Evil Eye is destroyed he continued his life of piracy along with Kika, Hervey, Nalleo and Sigurd.

Dario has a Good Will with Gau, Hervey, Kika and Sigurd.

  • Keen: You have done well by coming here. In this room, you may confess what is in your heart and accept proper judgement.
Dario: Really... Well, fine then. Do what you want!
  • Keen: Would you secretly inform me about anyone on board this ship who you think is causing problems?
Dario: Well, sure... that'd be that Louise! But hey, I'm a man, too! I'll have you know I'm not going to stay mad over something so stupid!
  • Keen: Then, would you tell me what you think of Razro?
Dario: That kid? It looks like everyone trusts that boy... Man, they should trust me just as much, you know?
  • Keen: Finally, quietly confess the things you wish to atone for, or all the things that you are thankful for.
Dario: ... Like hell I'd be thinking about anything like that!
  • Keen: Then, I shall pass judgement!

Dario: Hm? Does this... mean it was good? Well, of course!!

Dario: Groah!! You stupid bastard!! Y-You could have killed me!!

Hey! I'm Lady Kika's number one man, Dario! No one messes with me!

Well, since I'm a pirate, there's no knowing when I might die. When I do, take care of Nalleo for me! Got it?

That Louise put little Nalleo in my care and disappeared. She said "Don't ask." "Don't ask," my butt! Well, that's a long time ago, so I'm not gonna gripe about it. But Nalleo's my son! I ain't handin' him over to anyone now!!

If you visit the Nest of Pirates during Chapter 10 on a Wind or Earth day. Nalleo and Dario will join you. If you visit on a Fire or Water day, you'll get Sigurd and Hervey instead, but you can return to pick up the other two after Chapter 14.

Dario equips great armor, is highly durable, plenty strong, and has good Unite Attacks with others. He's slow, but with a Gale Rune on, he gets becomes fast enough to be useful on all but the biggest stages.
