Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

Prince Noctis's party comes to Galdin Quay to take a ferry to Altissia, but find it is not running. Dino recognizes Noctis a the prince of Lucis, and claims he can help him get to Accordo if Noctis procures a rare gem. Dino explains that though he is a reporter, his true passion is jewelry, but many of the rare stones he desires are in dangerous places. He promises to not publicize Noctis's travels if he will help him.

Noctis goes out to retrieve the stone Dino requested, and Dino promises to arrange a ship for him for the next day. However, Noctis learns the Crown City has been attacked and turns back, and in the changed political climate Dino is unable to help Noctis get to Altissia. He calls Noctis's smartphone offering more jobs for him.

After Noctis disappears Eos is overtaken by daemons. When he returns to Galdin Quay ten years later, he finds it wrecked and abandoned. Dino's clothes are strewn about near the spot where he used to sit, likely either killed by daemons or having turned into one himself.

Spoilers end here.
