Dakova is the boss of Chapter 5 of Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance, and a general of the Daein army. He is an observant, competent officer who knows his place and follows orders. He and his men were sent by Petrine to retrieve Princess Elincia unharmed from the Greil Mercenaries' fort. Having surrounded the fort, Dakova and his men await the actions of the mercenaries. When Ike leads a party of the mercenaries out of the fort, Dakova is forced to change his plans, and quickly adjusts his battle strategy.
If Dakova lives through his encounter with the Greil Mercenaries, he is later seen apologizing to Petrine for failing his mission. Petrine reminds him of the Daein army's motto - "Success or failure, life or death", then orders him out of her sight, presumably dead.

|“||Ike: Are you the commander of this battalion? Order your men to retreat, and I’ll let you escape with your life.
Dakova: Don’t push your luck, mercenary dog!!

|“||I... don't believe it... What went wrong...||”|
|“||Grr... How've they lasted this long? Just who are these mercenaries? Knowing your enemy's strength is vital to any strategy... Soldiers! Retreat! We fall back for now!||”|
