History

The 71st spirit of the Goetia and a Duke of Hell. He appears as a man with a large number of different faces, resembling both men and women, and holds a book in his right hand. His office is to teach all arts and sciences to anyone and to declare the secret agreements of anyone. He knows the thoughts of all men and women and can change them as he pleases at will. He can also cause the love of a person for another and show a person to the summoner no matter what part of the world that they are in. He governs over 36 legions of infernal spirits.

Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey

"One of the 72 demons of the Goetia. He is a duke with many faces that change constantly. He holds a heavy book in his right hand which has the thoughts of all living beings, past, present and future, written in a language only he can read."
Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey compendium

Dantalion is mainly found on Eridanus Sector as a random encounter on the 2nd and 3rd floors. There is a Dantalion NPC on the west side of the top floor of Eridanus, reached after getting the Gate Search C from Ryan. It gives the side-quest "Tales of Investigation" and will regularly employ the protagonist to be his proxy explorer across the Schwarzwelt, paying him to fully map several floors of each sector. Once every sector has been fully mapped, he will gratefully hand over a cache of Incenses to the protagonist.

Shin Megami Tensei IV

Known as Dantalian, he appears in the Challenge Quest, "Hunter Tournament Prelims," while acting as support for the final challenger. Dantalian also appears in the "Training Battle 3" Challenge Quest alongside an Oni. Flynn must defeat the pair without having their attacks reflected and finish the battle in 3 turns. In order to do this, Flynn must use the Blight skill before Dantalian can use Tetrakarn. Swapping in Zhen to use Pandemic Bomb will also lower the pair's damage output.

Dantalian later appears as a normal enemy in Kagome Tower within Shinjuku National Park. He can teach Flynn the Mazanma, Tetrakarn and Makarakarn skills through his Demon Whisper.

New Game Plus Challenge Quest, "Slay the Demon in Hiding." Talking to the baker at the bakery in Mikado Castle has him state his desire to learn more. He will transform into Dantalian, telling Flynn that he doesn't care if he becomes a demon as long as he learns. In the battle, Dantalian's personality surfaces, saying that those who seek to learn become nourishment for him and in turn have their wishes granted. During the battle his face becomes the baker's, and asks Flynn to stop, as he only wants to learn. This is a trap and agreeing will have Dantalian call Flynn a fool. The demon is surprised at his defeat, unable to understand how even with his infinite knowledge that he could be defeated by a mere human. Dantalian's final words are in the baker's voice, asking if it's so wrong to want to know.

I am Fallen Dantalian... Didst thou summon me to inquire about forbidden knowledge?
I still hold more lore I long to teach you... Well, perhaps another day.
