Nothing is known about his childhood and no one has ever come to his hall with a knowledge of his past.
Dinogad has spent most of his career trying to stay one step ahead of Ceredig, a man he considers his rival and because of whom he had been employing Talhaearn as his long-time spy. Ceredig is responsible for stripping away all of his domain apart from a single hall and his ragtag group of men.
Ceredig was nearly responsible for his death. When Dinogad and his men went in search of Talhaearn, Ceredig happened upon the group and massacred the entire teulu apart from him and two men.
Dinogad is boisterous - loud and hearty. He doesn't mind being rowdy with his men and they love him for it. He has a mean temper, too. He does not hesitate to hit show it off when things don't go his way. On the other hand, he knows when and where to behave. During his meeting with Arthur he was generous with his liquor to the other king and his men but drank very little himself.
One last thing is that he is honorable. Dinogad talks about killing other men lightly, but when it comes down to it he respects any man who respects him.
