Dinlas is the Greek god of chaos and hatred, and the son of Aphrodite, the goddess of love, and Ares, the god of war. Aphrodite was not married to Ares, and so Dinlas was illegitimate. Aphrodite was ashamed of him, and abandoned him, banishing him to the underworld.
There, Hades, the god of evil and deceit discovered Dinlas lying on his cold stone floor, in great pain and torment. He sensed a great fury in Dinlas, due to his abandonment by his mother, and decided to adopt the young boy and turn him into an agent of darkness.
As Dinlas grew up under Hades’ guidance, it became clear to the evil god what Dinlas should do. Hades sent him back to the human realm to serve as guardian of the city of Lamark, a magical place known to warriors all over the world as a place where they could come to be healed after battle. There were many expert doctors and nurses in Lamark, some of whom were trained by the great healer, Asclepius, who was renowned for being able to raise the dead.
After being in Lamark for a time, Dinlas was found by his father, Ares. As the god of war, Ares was naturally furious that such a place as Lamark existed, since he wanted warriors to stay and perish on the battlefield whenever he pleased. He did not want them defecting from their posts.
So Ares made promises of great wealth and new lands to Dinlas if he would destroy the city of Lamark. Dinlas was easily persuaded, due to his great thirst for power and deep anger at all people, especially his mother. He agreed to wreck the city as his father wished.
First, he returned to Hades, where the famous three-headed dog, Cerberus, had been his pet. A huge and vicious creature, Cerberus had a soft spot for Dinlas, who had always been friendly to him. When Dinlas asked him to return to Lamark with him, Cerberus readily obeyed, and together they destroyed the city, killing everyone who lived there and sending them all to Hades for an eternity of pain and torment. Asclepius, the great healer, was killed by Dinlas himself, as a special favor to his father, Ares.
