Dic is a mixed ranged character with good speed, good strength, and good endurance. Although Gaspar may be the more appealing option with more offensive skills and better range, Dic stands out from his counterpart by being the only character in the game that can regenerate armor for both himself and his allies using his wards. A good starting character for beginners, Dic is recommended for people who want a balanced character that can also help teammates. Dic is also a support type, with low stats, but has utilities for a team. He’s not bad for melee with his L attack, but nothing really specialized for it. His shotgun makes easy to finish an enemy. His EMP removes enemy’s armor, and ward charging ally’s AP.

"Dwarven ‘Symbol’ Hero"
The Senior General of Ginia. When the evil generalissimo of the Dwarf Empire who dreamed to govern the world suspected his downfall, and spread his blood relatives on the ground by manipulating his genes. The plan was to create the so-called ‘children of the generalissimo’. The by-product of the plan was Dic. Although Dic was born with cursed blood, he vowed to use his given power for righteousness and peace. He is serious, but he doesn’t understand that the eccentric character of dwarves could make other people displeased. Dic’s power comes from the special protein molecule carved into his body. This protein molecule is a sort of non-duplicable master key, which can receive preferential power transmitted from a reaction furnace located in Rockport, the city of the dwarves. Dic’s power armor resource comes from Dic himself. The problem is that the power used by Dic is similar to the one used by the generalissimo of the Dwarf Empire in the past, so some people suspect that Dic might be the reincarnation of the generalissimo of the Dwarf Empire. On the contrary, the three scientists who worked for the generalissimo speak without hesitation that Dic is a ‘failure’. The generalissimo of the Dwarf Empire had capabilities close to God. Compared to that, Dic is just a mediocre clone of the generalissimo. Dic’s abilities obviously can’t be compared with those of the generalissimo, but nobody doubts that he sides with righteousness and will use his power to prevent the evil ambition of the generalissimo and his followers."

Costumes and Color PresetsEdit
- Dic was one of the first three characters created for Archeblade along with Renny and Valle.
- Dic is the only character in the game that has the ability to regenerate AP with his rage skill.
- Dic was originally named Dick in the earlier versions of the game, but this was later changed.
- Before the change, some fans also called him Richard instead of Dick.
- Originally, Dic's guarding animation would have him hide under a cardboard box. This was planned to be a reference to the Saturday Night Live sketch, "Dick in a Box," but the concept was scrapped due to a networking problem that would occur whenever Dic would guard. 
- Some fans have also pointed out the resemblance to how Solid Snake hides in a box from the Metal Gear Solid series.
- Dic's original concept art has him out of his armor and looking slighly younger.
