Dario (ダリオ, Dario) is a supporting character in Suikoden IV and Suikoden Tactics. Dario is the impulsive, self-proclaimed right-hand man of Lady Kika.
Dario“ Hey! I'm Lady Kika's number one man, Dario! No one messes with me! ”
Dario was a pirate serving under Kika as well as her, self-proclaimed, right-hand man. He's also the father of Nalleo and although they have a true parent-child bond, Dario had not confided in him that they are not blood-related nor the identity of his mother, Louise. Thinking with his heart over his head, Dario was often a source of strife for Kika, Sigurd and Hervey due to his hot-temper and propensity to start fights. Still, his blunders were usually forgiven as Dario's motivations were usually pure and in pursuit of justice.
He fought with the leader of the Headquarters Ship several times, including when he thought he was hunting mermaids but gladly joined his crew when Kika aligned her forces with his. He would serve faithfully throughout the Island Liberation War, inspiring not only his son but Rakgi as well. He was also surprised to see Louise again and harboured no real animosity but made sure to state that he would never give Nalleo up.
Following the war, he continued to train Nalleo while returning to service under the command of Lady Kika.
