History

Although the Carbink servants debuted in Diancie — Princess of the Diamond Domain, they made their first chronological appearance in Diancie and the Cocoon of Destruction. Merrick, along with Bort and Allotrope, were chasing Diancie around in the Diamond Domain. After finding her, Merrick mentioned that it was not the time to be playing games and accidentally tripped on a pile of diamonds. When Merrick was about to tell her the news, Dace stepped in instead.

In Diancie — Princess of the Diamond Domain, Merrick appeared leading Bort and Allotrope, who were carrying food, to a house where Diancie was staying. Once inside, they were shocked to see their princess was gone. From the balcony, Merrick was just able to catch a glimpse of Diancie heading to the forest. They decided to follow her. On their way, they were attacked by a group of Ariados. They were able to escape them however and quickly hurried to Diancie. They found her trying to help a Pangoro stuck in a hollow tree. They helped in getting it free by stomping down on the tree. Right at that moment the Ariados from earlier arrived at the scene and threatened to attack Diancie and the Carbink. The Carbink vowed to protect Diancie no matter what, but then the Pangoro they helped stood up and drove the Ariados off. Later, the Carbink and Diancie set off in the sunset, unaware they were being spied on by Millis Steel.

Later, in Diancie and the Cocoon of Destruction, the Carbink servants found Diancie in a shopping mall in Orsay City. Ash and his friends, assuming that the Carbink were bad, try to rescue Diancie. Ash got on a ladder from Clemont's Clemontic Gear and grabbed Diancie while gliding on his Hawlucha. During Riot's battle with Ash, Clemont, and Serena in a forest, the Carbink servants intervene to help protect Diancie, before being temporarily injured and escaping.

The Carbink servants stayed with the group during their trek to Allearth Forest. Later, when the forest was under attack by Yveltal, Merrick, Bort, and Allotrope were turned into stone by Yveltal's Oblivion Wing, whilst Dace escaped. After Xerneas stopped Yveltal from damaging the forest, Merrick and the two other Carbink were revived by Xerneas's Fairy Aura. Back in the Diamond Domain, they watched as Diancie created another Heart Diamond.

Dace (Japanese: ダイイ Di) appeared in Diancie and the Cocoon of Destruction. It is the elder Carbink of the four.

Dace in its youth

While Dace was journeying in the Allearth Forest, it stumbled across several Pokémon that were running from Yveltal. Due to Yveltal's Oblivion Wing, Dace's life force was being drained. Dace was about to be weakened until Xerneas arrived and used its Fairy Aura to restore the forest.

Later, when Merrick was about to tell Diancie something, Dace stepped in instead. Dace told Diancie about the Heart Diamond losing its powers. Diancie didn't believe Dace at first and accused it of exaggerating but Dace convinced her to take it seriously. Dace recommended Diancie to see Xerneas after her powers of creating a Heart Diamond failed.

Later, after Ash and the others escaped from Riot's Greninja, they entered the Diamond Domain and Dace appeared and explained that the Heart Diamond's life was no more. Dace and the others left the Diamond Domain and arrived in the Allearth Forest. It warned Ash and his friends about Yveltal causing destruction if one would disturb its cocoon.

When Yveltal woke up from its slumber in the cocoon, Dace was not turned into stone as the Oblivion Wing didn't hit it. After Xerneas stopped Yveltal from damaging the forest, Dace was able to reunite with Merrick, Bort, and Allotrope after they were turned into stone. Back in the Diamond Domain, Dace watched as Diancie successfully created another Heart Diamond.

Personality and characteristics

The Carbink servants with Diancie

The Carbink servants are considered to be Diancie's bodyguards as they raised her when she was young. Out of the four Carbink, Dace was considered to be the most serious.

Merrick, Bort, and Allotrope are very loyal to Diancie, and are very dedicated to protecting her no matter what the situation. The three are almost always seen escorting Diancie wherever she goes and also began to worry when Diancie had fled from them to go to the big city. However, Merrick, Bort, and Allotrope can sometimes get annoyed with Diancie when she is oblivious to their situations, such as when they were panicking due to being chased by a group Ariados, yet she told them to help Pangoro and greeted it. This is also seen when Diancie is playfully running from them even though they had serious news for her. Merrick is capable of speaking telepathically, and appears to be the leader servant of the three. Bort and Allotrope, however, appear to be incapable of speaking telepathically.

Dace is shown to be quite knowledgeable, especially about the Allearth Forest as well as the powers of Xerneas and Yveltal. It used this knowledge to advise Ash, his friends, and Diancie while they were in the Allearth Forest. It is shown to have given Diancie the objective to find Xerneas and its Fairy Aura. However, it is quite serious and was rather annoyed with Diancie when she took it lightly. It also was annoyed when Diancie replied to it with "okie-dokie!", telling her that a simple yes was good enough. Like Diancie and Merrick, Dace can speak via telepathy.
