Dillo's homeworld was destroyed centuries by a devastating assault by the Shivans leaving him and his people as space-faring nomads. Upon finding radio waves sent from Earth, Dillo's people have sent him as a scout to warn the Humans of dangers of Shivans or to return with sad news of another race of lifeforms annihilated by these unstoppable devastators. Having arrived just as the invasion began, Dillo chose to stay and help the Earthlings fight off the menace instead of potentially luring them back to his own people.
