Dill (formerly Iwan) is a character found in Greenthumb Gardens in the game Dragon Quest VII.


Dill is the son of Burdock, the owner of Greenthumb Gardens' herb garden. He falls in love with Linda, one of his father's servants. He proposes to marry her, which would eliminate her debt. He is jealous of Pepe who he feels is monopolizing Linda's affection. At the same time, Kaya, a servant, is in love with Kaya. She tries to have Dill return her affections but he spurns her advances.

One day, as he is looking out the garden, he sees Linda and Pepe talking. It is at this time that a Gray Rain begins to fall. This is caused by Rainiac. The rain turns all of the residents to stone.

Greenthumb Gardens[edit]

After the party defeats the Rainmaker and uses the Angel Tear, Dill sees that Pepe has fallen on top of Linda. Believing that this is too forward even for Pepe, Dill rushes to the garden. He finds out that Pepe, in his zeal to protect Linda, put himself on top of her to protect her from the Gray Rain. He becomes stiff and unresponsive due to the effects of overexposure. Dill has Carraway taken to his house.

He tries to console Linda but is rebuff by the depressed woman. This causes him to complain that Pepe is still monopolizing her affections.

When the party cures Pepe, Dill decides that his father should throw a party to celebrate his recovery. Burdock also uses this feast to announce Dill's engagement to Linda. Unfortunately, rain begins to fall. Fearing that it is the Gray Rain, everyone runs for shelter. Inside, Dill and Kaya are talking about Linda when suddenly, she kisses him. Dill removes himself from her embrace. Kaya spits out that this is probably what Linda and Pepe are doing but he refuses to believe it.

When Pepe leaves town without a word, Dill tries to console Linda but she rebuffs him again.


Dill eventually marries Linda. Linda gives birth to a son whom she names Eppe. Sometime during the interim, Dill loses his mansion and his garden to Kasadol. He is now a worker in the field, and is prone to drinking. It got so bad for Linda that she ran away from Greenthumb Gardens.

30 Years Later[edit]

Dill is working in the field with his son, Eppe. He is quite lazy and doesn't finish the work that he needs to do. He goes to his house. Later, he is visited by Kaya who still has feelings for him. Dill still rebuffs her, telling her that it is pointless to reminiscence about the past. He notices that she still has the rope that he made for her and that it is in tatters. He asks Kaya if she wants to replace it. Kaya refuses, saying that she likes it.

When Kaya is revealed to have poison Kadasol, Dill comes in and tells Kadasol that she poisoned her on his orders. Kadasol throws both Kaya and Dill out of his house and Greenthumb Gardens. Dill tells Kaya to come with him. Kaya says that she doesn't have anything packed but he tells her that they can get what they need elsewhere. They leave the town together, never to be heard from again.
