Dellin has many unique spells that he has researched throughout his career. Dellin is very knowledgeable about wizardry in general, but he is especially knowledgeable about illusionary and phantasmal magics. (However, as is usual with illusionists, he is far less knowledgeable about necromantic, abjuration, invocational, and evocational magics.) He is also very knowledgeable about both calligraphy and alchemy.
Dellin is very perceptive and observant, and he has an excellent sense of direction. He is difficult to surprise, and he has trained himself to be able to fight in the dark.
Dellin is somewhat streetwise, able to get information from various "unofficial" sources. Dellin is fluent with all common goblinoid languages, as well as various "magical" languages. He can also speak with most burrowing mammals.
Dellin is a gifted teacher, and he has instructed the occasional pupil. He is a proficient storyteller. Unusual for his race, he knows how to swim.
