They will fight with each other, and both end up falling down a couple floors below leaving Dion by himself. He'll end up finding a hidden door that will lead him straight to Maitreya. He'll ask where is Faye, but Maitreya will tell him that she and Sol are already in Pureland and proceeds to defeat him in battle. Arthur will eventually reach Maitreya, Dion tells him that it took Faye. Arthur defeats Maitreya and claims the X-Plane unit.
After Maitreya's defeat, Arthur tells Dion that he'll take him to Dr. Belski. He takes him to Dr. Belski in Viper City, and with his bio-tech, just a piece of a tissue cell is enough to restore Dion back to normal. Dion thanks Arthur, and mentions that they have to hurry to Pureland. Dion warns Arthur that the only way back is through Dr. Quacer. Arthur still agrees to accompany Dion, and they warp to Pureland in the Talon.
Upon arrival in Pureland, Dion decides to split up. He'll look for the advance party while Arthur will look for Faye.

Arthur locates the machine at the bottom of the ruins, and finds himself being unable to inflict harm to Agron with the Mystic Sword. Dion decides to blow himself up with the bomb that was planted within him by Dr. Belski just for such an occasion, he destroys himself along with the Barrier Machine. With Agron protection out of the way, Arthur defeats him and Borgin arrives shortly after the battle. He tells Arthur that Dion saved their lives and they must not let his sacrifice be in vain.
After Xagor's defeat, Arthur and Borgin arrives in Viper City in the Future World. Dr. Belski restores Dion and Jupiah with their tissue cells at the request of Borgin, and Dion mentions to him to not bother with the bomb this time. Dion once again thanks Arthur for saving him and ask him what he's going to do now. Arthur replies that he's going back to the Present World and tells Dion that they will meet again.
Gameplay[edit | edit source]
Dion is a human whose innate element is Air. He, like all temporary characters, cannot eat meat or install parts nor learn new spells. The equipment that is already equipped on him cannot be removed, but he can equip armor in areas he's missing. On both occasions he joins the party, he always comes equipped with strong weaponry and spells that may outclass the player's party. Because of this, he is both a formidable fighter and spell caster, making him one of the more powerful temporary characters.

Etymology[edit | edit source]
Dion was a King in Laconia and husband of Amphithea, the daughter of Pronax. God Apollo rewarded them by conferring upon their three daughters, Orphe, Lyco, and Carya, the gift of prophecy, on condition that they should not betray the gods nor search after forbidden things. Dion erected a temple to Dionysus, who also visited his house and fell in love with Carya. When Orphe and Lyco tried not to let their sister consort with the god (thus breaking the restrictions imposed by Apollo), Dionysus changed them into rocks and Carya into a walnut tree.In Greek mythology,
