Doctor Dillamond is a Goat who has the ability to speak and interact with humans, as well as a professor at Shiz University. He is a supporting character in the Broadway musical, Wicked.

Because he was one of the only Animal professor at Shiz ("Animals" starting with a capital letter, like "Goat", are sentient beings), he is subjected to discrimination from his students and colleagues. However, Elphaba takes a liking to him.



Susan Hilferty's sketch of Dr. Dillamond's costume.

In the musical adaptation of Maguire's work, Doctor Dillamond teaches History as opposed to his novel counterpart who teaches Life Science. He is the unfortunate victim of the Wizard's attempts at controlling the Animal population - especially those that he fears might be teaching subversive or anti-Wizard material. Arrested and removed from his position at Shiz University, Dillamond is transformed into a regular, non-speaking, non-communicating goat. This confirms his earlier worries expressed in the song "Something Bad," in which he tells Elphaba about rumors of Animals losing their powers of speech.

When Elphaba discovers Dillamond as a prisoner that can no longer speak, she resists the Wizard's offer to set the Ozians straight about her reputation, an enormous step in her transformation into the Wicked Witch of the West.

Glinda says during the show that she will continue Elphaba's work. This does imply that Doctor Dillamond could be turned back to normal.
