Young Dinny was the grandfather of Togget and the grandson of Old Dinny; he inherited all of his grandsire's talents. Dinny was an excellent digger and a good thinker, assisting with the riddles that Gonff and Martin the Warrior had to solve to get to Salamandastron. He accompanied them on their journey, and helped them out of many tight spots. Dinny also made friends among the Bat Mountpit tribe. The bats were quite fond of Dinny and his rustic mole accent and considered him to be a fat bat with no wings. Dinny liked the idea, reasoning that he could "fly through the earth".

Later on, when the three friends were stuck in the Screamhole, he exercised his digging ability when he dug almost straight up, retrieved a large net, and allowed them all to escape. When Dinny returned to Mossflower Woods, he found great merriment in triggering the ballista, which was built by Timballisto in the final attack on Kotir. He later became the first Foremole of Redwall Abbey.

He also accompanied Martin the Warrior on the search for his origins.

Dinny was educated in writing molescript.
