Dalian is a worker on a large cargo ship that takes cargo back and forth between the Fire Nation and the Earth Kingdom.
Dalian started working on the cargo ship at age twelve when his father died from an illness. He applied for a job on the cargo ship to help support his ailing mother of many years. He hasn't seen his mother in a long time.
Dalian's life changed drastically when he met Team Runaway, at that time consisting of Shoji, On Ji, and Iandao. Iandao introduced the three of them as "crazy people who are on the run." He then called On Ji "Miri," as that was her archer name.
Dalian instantly liked the three of them. He especially liked Tiji because, as everyone knows, it is crazy to bring a koala sheep onto a ship you're trying to sneak around on. He took them to a small area that was surrounded by large cargo crates, protecting the group from sight.
After Shoji voices his suspicions, Dalian exposes his life story, followed by a confession of his guard-in-training, Cheng.
Dalian is nice and friendly even though he has lived a tough life. He likes helping others who are unfortunate and lost because he remembers being the same way. He is skillful, sly, and cunning when he needs to be. Unfortunately, he can be subject to bribery, which is what hurts Team Runaway.
It is known that Dalian can use a sword skillfully.
