“We Sacaeans pray to the Sky and the Earth. The light of day and the darkness of night that engulfs this land... They produce wind, lightning, fire, ice, and many other affinities... Every person on this planet is protected by one of the elements. According to my clan's beliefs, I am protected by the Anima affinity.”

He's the leader of the Sacaen Kutolah tribe, to which Rath and Guy belong, and also the father of Rath from Fire Emblem: Rekka no Ken and the grandfather of Sue from Fire Emblem: Binding Blade. He sends Sin to the other side of the world to look for Sue.
Leader of the Liberation Army, he tries to free Sacae from the double threat of Bern soldiers and Sacaen traitors; he can't hold back his enemies and despite the elimination of his clan, proceeds to weaken them by guerilla actions.

Dayan's stats are quite low for his level. His HP, speed, and resistance are average, but his other stats can be a bit underwhelming. Shin and Sue's stats will generally turn out to be higher. However, if you are in need of a filler unit, his non-mediocre resistance can allow him to be a mage killer.
Dayan's name may be a reference to Moshe Dayan, a prominent Israeli military figure.
