The Dillard is a DHI copy made for Finn Whitman by the Cryptos after Tia Dalma tricked Finn into killing Dillard Cole, his best friend. In The Insider, The Dillard was useful in many circumstances and a comfort, becoming one of the Keepers even though he was a computer. He used to act very much like a computer before Finn helped "train" him to act more human.
