Dilton is Riverdale High's intellectual genius and number one whiz kid. He is a master of mathematics and is endowed with a scientific mind, besides being above average over the other students in every other subject in school. He is always inventing machines and new contraptions to better the way of life in Riverdale. Most of the time his inventions fail, but they are always bigger and better then the ones before them. Dilton isn't particularly outgoing and generally prefers spending his evenings with his Bunsen burners rather then hanging out with Archie and his pals.
