Dano is a part of Princess Anidori's escort when she is sent to Bayern.
When Princess Anidori is sent to Bayern to wed their prince, Dano volunteers to be the cook for her escort. He is a young man who looks up to the members of the Kildenrean Royal Army very much, and is most likely overjoyed at the chance to travel among some of them.
As they near Bayern, it becomes more and more clear that roughly half of the escort follow a fellow guard named Ungolad rather than Captain Talone. When the company is only a week away from Bayern's capital city, Talone builds a campfire for the princess and his men, but Ungolad builds another that attracts the majority of the guards and Selia, Anidori's lady-in-waiting. Just in case, Talone assigns his most trusted men to guard Ani and instructs her to jump on a horse and run straight to Bayern's king if there is any sign of trouble.
The next day, Talone's suspicions of Ungolad and his friends are proven to be justified when the tension between the divided escort snaps when a friend of Ungolad's named Yulan removes his shirt in the summer heat. Talone orders him to stay properly dressed while he is in the presence of a lady, but the man refuses as Selia insists she does not mind. Gritting his teeth, Talone states that while they are the princess's guard, they will act as such. Scornfully, another friend of Ungolad's named Terne points out that they are a long way from Kildenree and Bayern hasn't claimed Ani as their princess yet, causing several of Ungolad's men to hail Selia as their new princess. Angrily, Talone confirms that the mutineers want to help Selia not only steal the title of princess, but also Anidori's very name. Realizing that the traitors want to kill Ani in order to replace her with Selia, Talone commands the true princess to escape.
As battle breaks out between Ani's loyal guards and the traitors, young Dano is left with only a cooking knife to defend himself with. Such an implement is no match for the violent Ishta, however, and Dano is swiftly killed.
