Background

Personality

Dallben is a kind and wise old fellow. He found Taran when he was a baby and took him in as his own.

Appearances

Taran later became restless to leave Caer Dallben to fight against the Horned King which Dallben disapproves to. Taran later leaves on his quest to protect Hen Wen. At the end of the movie, he is shown with Hen Wen and Doli saying that Taran did well.
