Dino Francis Golzine is a character in Banana Fish.

Considered as the main villain of the story, Dino is also a major mafia boss in New York City, and the adoptive guardian of Ash Lynx. He has a taste for young boys, and sexually abused Ash throughout his childhood.

ProfileEdit

AppearanceEdit

Dino is shown to be a bald elderly man with grey eyebrows and a thin trimmed white moustache across his entire upper lip. His usual attire is a black suit over a white unbuttoned shirt with red floral scarf and Navy blue shoes. He is occasionally seen wearing a black robe while staying in his mansion.

PersonalityEdit

As can be expected of a Mafia Don, Golzine is a ruthless, cold-hearted, calculating, ambitious, sadistic and even abusive person. He is well aware of his position and power and has no fear in exerting his authority by weaponizing both factors.

Golzine is usually well mannered and doesn't typically retort to insulting unless provoked. He treats his subordinates with respect, but will still scold or punish them if necessary. He's however shown to be fairly manipulative and even backstabbing towards his co-conspirators and benefactors, as proven with the fact he has ample evidence of their repeated sexual misconducts which he saves as blackmail, services that Golzine himself provides through his own properties as he is also himself a repeated pedophile.

He can become extremely power hungry, and will use deadly force if needed to ensure his position and control of his criminal empire.

Deeply intelligent he has not only raised Ash and tried to mold him into his ideal successor teaching him from not just the criminal enterprise but also from many different fields, which he also understands well and in turn this helps Golzine develop and nurture his Banana Fish plot.

By far Golzine's most notorious trait is his obsession with Ash, both sexually and personally. In fact a constant theme in the series is how Golzine tries to make Ash to submit to him completely or be killed by his own hands otherwise.
