Dalton was a young child in Portal City. He often skipped school, but sometimes lost his belongings while running from monsters he found in the city's dangerous areas.
I'm Dalton, and, um, promise not to tell my parents? I skived from school and went into the hedge maze instead. I didn't know it could be so scary in there and I dropped all my textbooks and ran. Now I'm afraid to go back in and retrieve them.
I'm so relieved! And don't worry - I've definately learned my lesson. I'll try and play it a bit safer when I bunk off from school in the future. You are a lifesaver!
As Dalton only appears in the gypsy's tale, it is unclear if he ever really existed.
