Dahl was a short old man shown to be wearing minister's robes, hanging over his shoulders and buttoned on the front. He was shown to have no facial hair and wore a white minister's cap. He always wore a grim expression on his aged face.
He was a cowardly man who only wished to keep himself alive. Though he performed many executions and was the public speaker for such events on behalf on the Count, he feared him all the same. However, he did not show much remorse for his actions, which made him cold hearted and selfish in the end, more so as he insulted guards who were dying at the hands of Guts. Somewhere deep inside, it did appear that he cared for the family he had served under, most likely from his days when the Count was still human. He expressed this after the Count left Theresia's room feeling like a monster, but his concern was quickly turned into fear as the Count revealed his monstrous true form.

- Dahl and the Mayor of Koka are similar characters in both appearance and personality, as both feared their masters, would willingly sacrifice human lives for their own sake, and both wore minister clothing with some minor differences.
