Dilaf es el gragdet del monasterio Dakhor que conduce a la invasión de Arelon.

En algún momento de su vida como monje de Dakhor, se le asigna actuar como espía en Arelon, y sus características físicas son alteradas para parecer un joven areleno.[2] Tiempo después de su transformación, conoce y se enamora de una mujer de Arelon. Cuando ella muere a pesar de la ayuda elantrina, cuaja en él un odio hacia Elantris que le lleva a la locura. Tras liderar los asaltos tanto en Kae como en Teod, es asesinado por Hrathen, que no puede tolerar sus tendencias genocidas.

Apariencia y personalidad

Dilaf, que una vez fue un hombre derethi alto,[2] tiene ahora la apariencia de un hombre areleno bajito[3] con pelo rubio,[4] y no aparenta más de veinticinco años,[5] aunque realmente está cerca de los setenta.[2] Sus ojos arden a menudo con pasión y rara vez se preocupa de ocultar sus emociones, que van desde el fervor religioso hasta el más profundo odio. Es incapaz de llevarse bien con la gente.[6] Normalmente viste la túnica roja de sacerdote derethi.[7]

Como otros monjes de Dakhor, el cuerpo de Dilaf ha sido distorsionado por la magia de su orden. Sus brazos son como nudosas ramas de árbol y su piel está tensa sobre extrañas protuberancias y símbolos formados por sus huesos.[8] Intrincados patrones abultados de líneas y curvas corren como venas bajo su piel.[9][1]

Empuña una «espada aparentemente diabólica» durante la batalla de Teoras.

Atributos y habilidades

Dilaf es un orador carismático, capaz de influir en grandes multitudes a su paso. Su fanatismo es muy efectivo a la hora de atraer a otras personas hacia su visión del Shu-Dereth y el odio hacia los elantrinos.[3]

Como monje de Dakhor, sus huesos tienen formas retorcidas que le granjean acceso al poder del Dor.[9] El dakhor le proporciona una gran velocidad, fuerza[9] y unos huesos casi indestructibles.[1] Debido al hecho de que el dakhor está vinculado a Fjorden, los poderes de Dilaf disminuyen cuanto más lejos se encuentra de dicho lugar, aunque este debilitamiento debido a la distancia no es tan exagerado como en otras magias arcanas de Sel tales como el AonDor.[10][11] Como gragdet de Dakhor, Dilaf tiene acceso a algunos poderes que otros monjes de menor rango no tienen.[1] Su apariencia y proceso de envejecimiento han sido alterados para parecer más joven y aónico.[2] Tiene la habilidad de anular aones[4] y es inmune a ataques directos del Dor.[1] Adquirir esta habilidad requirió el sacrificio de cincuenta vidas.

Dilaf es muy hábil con la espada y la blande de forma muy efectiva en combinación con la velocidad mejorada de sus poderes dakhor.[1]

Historia

Vida temprana

Very little is known about Dilaf's early life. He had an early ardor for Shu Dereth, as evidenced by his early acceptance into Dakhor monastery. By the time he was ten, Dilaf had entered the monastery. Rather than pursue the priesthood, Dilaf elected to continue in the monastery, becoming one of the dedicated Dakhor monks.

By the time he reached middle age, Dilaf had risen to the rank of gragdet, the head of the monastery. Dilaf's intensity was only amplified by his elevation, and he began putting plans in place for the destruction of Elantris. An essential part of his plans involved his insertion in a long running undercover operation. It was also during this period that Dilaf gained the bone structure that allowed him to cancel out the Elantrian use of AonDor, a transformation that cost the lives of many Dakhor monks.

Just before his insertion was to take place, Dilaf began training a young Hrathen. Three months after Hrathen entered the monastery, Dilaf required one of the monks under his command to sacrifice himself to transport Dilaf to Wulfden the Fourth's chambers, a distance easily walked. Although Dilaf did not assign particular importance to this event, it would lay the groundwork of his eventual death.

Infiltración en Arelon

Shortly after Hrathen left Dakhor monastery, Dilaf underwent a painful physical change to appear to be of Arelene descent. It appears that this transformation also changed the aging process, as the rest of his life (he would live to be nearly 70 years old), Dilaf appeared physically quite young. Immediately after arriving in Arelon, Dilaf set about integrating himself into Arelene culture. At first, it seemed that everything was going according to his plans. Then, unexpectedly, Dilaf fell in love.

Very little is known about Seala, Dilaf's wife. Dilaf is unhinged by the time he reveals most of it, so what is known, is suspect. Dilaf was over 50 when they met, and no one was as surprised as he was when he fell in love. He was left even more surprised when she returned his love, despite his physical 'deformity' of looking like an Arelene.

Seala became sick, but Dakhor cannot heal. In desperation, Dilaf turned to the Elantrians to heal Seala. Unfortunately, the glyph that should have healed her instead performed a partial transformation, not unlike the Reod, leaving her in pain and unable to die. Dilaf, however, believed that this tragic accident was a malicious attack, and began nursing a hatred that would ultimately drive him insane.[2] He retreated to the outlying city of Naen, and began his infiltration in earnest, taking the role of an Arelene who had converted to Shu Dereth.[12]

Invasión de Kae

Dilaf worked secretly for years towards Wyrn's true goal: The genocide of all Arelenes, and eventually all people of Aonic descent. This was a goal Dilaf strongly supported, as the extinction of the Aonic bloodline would bring with it the end of the Elantrians.[13] When he heard of the construction of a Derethi chapel in Kae, he traveled there with his converts from Naen; upon his arrival, the arteth Fjon was impressed with his diligence and purported to appoint him an arteth, though arteths lack the authority to name other arteths.

Shortly before the culmination of this plan, Wyrn sent a gyorn named Hrathen as a decoy to distract anyone who might oppose Dilaf.[9] Dilaf introduced himself to Hrathen in his role as a teacher and impressed him with his religious zeal and knowledge of Shu-Dereth. Hrathen then properly appointed Dilaf to the rank of arteth and swore him as his odiv, though as Dilaf was secretly a gragdet, those promotions were actually without force.[12] Despite their bond, Dilaf and Hrathen's relationship quickly became hostile as Hrathen grew increasingly concerned about Dilaf's hatred of Elantris. In the following two months, the two plotted against each other. While Hrathen tried to convert Arelon, Dilaf prepared his invasion. When the last of Hrathen's plans failed and Raoden was crowned king, Dilaf began the invasion, revealing himself as the gragdet of Dakhor Monastery. His warrior-monks began the invasion by revealing they'd been smuggled into the country. When Hrathen realized Dilaf's superior rank, he acquiesced to Dilaf's control.[9]

Dilaf captured Raoden, used him as bait to capture Sarene, then stabbed Raoden and took Hrathen and Sarene along with several of the Dakhor monks to Teod via human-sacrifice-fueled teleportation. The remaining Derethi warriors in Arelon rounded up all surviving Elantrians and Arelenes into Elantris to kill them. In Teod, Dilaf prepared to kill Sarene in front of her unsuspecting father, King Eventeo, when Hrathen, his basic beliefs overpowering his strict training, leapt to defend her and attacked Dilaf. Hrathen broke Dilaf's nose, and Hrathen and Sarene fled. Dilaf ordered the Dakhor monks to search for Hrathen and Sarene. The two got separated, and Sarene was cornered by monks on Teod's docks.[1]

Raoden, followed by a host of newly-healed Elantrians, appeared on the docks using AonDor-powered teleportation, and the Elantrians engaged the monks as Raoden and Sarene ducked down an alley. Dilaf followed them and tried to kill them when Hrathen re-appeared. He revealed Dakhor-powered strength, and killed Dilaf before succumbing to his own wounds.[1]

The Elantrians repelled the invasion, both in Teod and Arelon.

Curiosidades

  • En la edición original de Elantris, se atribuye erróneamente un discurso de Dilaf a un monje de Dakhor llamado Mal.[9]
