Yorknew City arc
Dalzollene with two women by his sides, appear on a TV monitor in a room within the Nostrade's Mansion. He explains if they wish to become a Bodyguard they'll have to get one of the items given to them on on the list and have a month to accomplish it. Upon their retrieval of whatever item on the list in a month's time they'll officially become bodyguards and wishes them all good luck. As soon as Dalzollene was finished with his explanation, the applicant Basho tries to leave, but the door to the room was locked. Dalzollene appears on the TV monitor again explaining he's forgotten to mention a detail that being the minimal criteria to this job is to be strong enough to leave the mansion alive.
The following month the four applicants return to Dalzollene, each with a item on the list that was required for the bodyguard job. Impressed he formally hires the new bodyguards and formally introduces himself, while leading the group to a separate room where he explains their first mission to safely guard their boss to Yorknew City from the Ringon Airport, so the boss could attend the Underground Auction the following day. After Dalzollene Kurapika manages to make him aggravated by questioning if the boss has any enemies and how to plan prudently to help reduce the chance of any conflict that would happen with the boss. Dalzollene however makes it clear to Kurapika that anyone or anything who dares approach the boss is an enemy and to make no assumptions just take action against who or whatever. Making his point crystal clear to Kurapika he then leads the group down a narrow hallway leading to their boss.
Walking down the hallway the bodyguard Baise spots a a man laminated into a portrait and inquires what it is. Dalzollene informs the group the man in the portrait was a former bodyguard who didn't listen to him and listened to assumptions made by the enemy putting the boss's life in danger. Therefore he was terminated and the four of them were his replacements. At the end of the hallway, Dalzollene knocks on the door and informs the person behind it the newcomers have arrived and the boss allows them in. So Dalzollene then introduces the new bodyguards to their new boss Neon Nostrade. On the day before the Underground Auction, on the Ringon Airport runway, Dalzollene accompanied by Ivlenkov, Shachmono Tocino, and Squala keep a close eye on Neon, as she exits a large airship and is lead into a car by Dalzollene that is driven to Yorknew City.
While on their way to Yorknew city, Dalzollene hands Neon her prediction requests for September. Neon complains that her workload has increased again and threatens to quit since she promised her father she'd quit if she was given anymore work. Dalzollene apologizes on her father's behalf, but claims the new people are ones that her father is quite loyal too. When Neon asks where her father is Dalzollene claims he's at a conference, but Neon thinks he's with women. So Neon contacts her father and after arguing with him agrees to work on the predictions for September with her Lovely Ghost Writer Hatsu. Dalzollene reads one of the predictions and upon reading it becomes anxious. Finished with her work, Dalzollene congratulates her and Neon mentions she wants to go shopping before the Auction and Dalzollene says some of her bodyguards will accompany her. Upon arriving at the Hotel Beitacle Dalzollene contacts Light to inform him of a discrepancy in the recent batch of fortunes Neon composed.
With numerous prediction dictating death if in attendance of the auction, Light forbids his daughter to attend the Underground Auction for her own safety. Though Dalzollene concerned how Neon will take the news, confesses she becomes unbearable when she doesn't get her way. So Light orders Dalzollene to simply buy whatever she wants no matter what the cost. That night Dalzollene congratulates the bodyguards for a job well done and details their next mission to them, what their respective jobs are and what items in the auction have to be gotten no matter what the cost. Later after Neon is informed she can't attend the auction, she throws a massive tantrum and Dalzollene sporting some bruises contacts Light informing him that she's become unbearable. Though later Neon tires herself out and Dalzollene explains to Light why she threw the tantrum. Reluctantly Light cancels all of his plans will head to Yorknew immediately, but enforces Dalzollene to get the Queen of Colco Mummy at all costs. Dalzollene then contacts Kurapika for an update on his front who reports everything is fine.
Afterwards when the Phantom Troupe massacre all of the Underground Auction attendees Melody contacts Dalzollene and informs him of the situation at hand. Anxious of what occurred, Dalzollene order Melody and Kurapika to find out what happened in the auction building, while he contacts Linssen. After finding out everything, Kurapika contacts and informs Dalzollene about all of the missing attendees and stolen auction items. Furious by this Dalzollene proclaims the thieves must be caught and tells Kurapika he and Squala will regroup with him near the Central Palace Square and then orders Squala to leave five guard dogs behind for safety sake.
Upon arriving at the location where the Phantom Troupe were brought down, Dalzollene is left dumbfound by Uvogin's brute strength, while Kurapika comments how he's a potent Nen user. As soon as Squala starts to panic and claims he wants no part of making a move against Uvogin, to which Basho agrees with. Although Dalzollene agrees with the two's notion, he still wishes to try and stop them. The Shadow Beast Worm then appears from underground and introduces himself as one of the Shadow Beasts and inquires Dalzollene what clan they belong to and he answers the Ritz Clan. Worm warns the Nostrade Bodyguards to stay back as Porcupine, Rabid Dog, and Leech out of nowhere and confront Uvogin, but they're all beaten by him. Kurapika seeing no other alternative tries to go after Uvogin by himself, much to Dalzollene's dismay. And at that very moment, a beaten and mangled Worm returns to the Nostrade Bodyguards to warn them not to approach him.
However Kurapika tries to go after Uvogin and as Dalzollene tries to stop Kurapika, Melody plays her Hatsu A Field in Spring to calm everyone down and suggests they all thoroughly contemplate what to do next. Although calm, Kurapika proposes a plan to capture Uvogin. Dalzollene agrees to it and Kurapika manages to capture Uvogin with his chains. With Uvogin as their prisoner the bodyguards head back to Yorknew City. Although on the way, Dalzollene contacts Melody to warn her car they're being tailed, but the Shadow Beast Owl impedes the tailing car and Dalzollene believes it was the remaining Shadow Beasts that stopped them. So Dalzollene orders Kurapika to take a different route back into town and the direction of the place they're going to is that of Plan C.
Later that night at an undisclosed underground room Dalzollene and the other bodyguards try to interrogate Uvogin about the missing auction attendees and items. Dalzollene even uses a sword to try and stab Uvogin with it, but proves futile. Uvogin then admits to them that the auction attendees were all murdered and the items were already gone when arrived to steal them. Soon after Kurapika learns that their comrades were amongst the killed attendees acts abrasive punching Uvogin in the face. Dalzollene then intervenes and tries to reason with Kurapika. He later contacts the community that the Nostrade Clan captured one of the thieves and learns that the Shadow Beasts are all dead.
Afterwards supposed people from the community arrive and Dalzollene leads them to Uvogin. Upon their arrival, Dalzollene is instantly killed by Phinks who impales him with his right arm. Sometime after Uvogin escapes, Melody tries to contact Dalzollene, but to no avail and figures he's been killed. Without a leader it's ultimately decided that Kurapika takes over as head bodyguard and be the one who informs Light Nostrade of all that has occurred that night. Upon hearing of Dalzollene's death, Light is left speechless and claims he was a Nen user that could endure 10 bullets without being hurt.
Dao: Dalzollene's weapon resembles a sabre or a Dao with a thin blade embellished with inscriptions. It broke when he tried to stab Uvogin. In the 1999 anime, the runes increase the power of the sword when infused with Nen, suggesting they are possibly the same as the God's Letters. With them, he managed to pierce Uvogin's skin by five millimeters.
