Dalton is Queen Zeal's right-hand-man in Chrono Trigger.


The Magic Kingdom

When Crono's party enters Queen Zeal's chambers, the mysterious Prophet warns Zeal that Crono can be dangerous. So Dalton sics Golem on them.

After Crono's party defeats Golem, they are captured and imprisoned by Dalton. But what he doesn't know is that they are soon rescued by Schala and her kid brother Janus.

What Lies Beyond?

After the Mountain of Woe fell, Schala arrives with Janus to Terra Cave to find Melchior and Crono's party. She tells them that she has turned her back on Zeal. But then Dalton arrives and kidnaps her to take her back to Zeal.

Later, Crono's party confronts Dalton at Zeal Palace. After the battle and Dalton is defeated, he opens a portal and travels to the Ocean Palace deep under the water. So Crono's party follows him through the portal.

Lavos Beckons

Dalton is seen part way into the Ocean Palace. He sics the Golem Twins on Crono's party, then vanishes.

The New King

Dalton arrives at the Commons and declares himself King since Zeal had disappeared after the fall of the Kingdom of Zeal. He also takes the party as prisoners.

They are held captive aboard Dalton's Blackbird high up in the air. Fighting their way through the massive plane, they see flying next to them, Dalton in the Epoch. Dalton had attached wings to it and claimed it for himself. The party inevitably defeats Dalton, destroys the Blackbird and takes back Epoch.
