A rough person as well as the head of a mercenary group.
Works as the head of a small but capable mercenary group. He joins Roy’s group in accordance to his contract to House Pherae. He has been a swordsman since he was a boy, and met a young Klein who had come as a guest to the arena; and so became a mercenary for House Reglay. He has a helpful personality, and has deep trust in his comrades.
Your life is who you protect. This is the law of mercenaries.
Following that, Dieck is a mercenary group captain. He worries about his subordinates as much as his own life.
Dieck’s impression of Roy was the he was “too young.” At first he thought Roy would run away if push came to shove; but as they continued to fight, he noticed Roy’s aspirations. Dieck continued in the mercenary business after the war settled, and wondered if he would ever meet an employer like Roy again.
