Until he met the dirty denizens of Climax Castle, Dicking was convinced that aliens were the product of rural dwellers drinking too much moonshine, vampires were creatures concocted by the unhappy minds of lonely goths, and elementals were naught but fairy tales. Dale has had quite the education since that initial visit.
Dale and his partner, Marc Cumming, are polar opposites with Dale being a hardened cynic and Marc remaining open-minded and filled with wonder at every new possibility. Although they may lock horns at times, their friendship is as solid can be, and each would take a bullet for the other.
"I’m lucky to have you as a partner. You’re diplomatic, and you’ve never lost your sense of wonder. I’m cynical, pissed off, and my answer to everything is pretty much kick its ass first and ask questions later.” --Dale Dicking
