Very little is known about Dan's life before the outbreak. Dan likely lived in or near the state of Virginia.
As the Wolves invade the Alexandria Safe-Zone, ransacking homes and murdering residents, Dan attempts to seek shelter inside a home. However, a Wolf chasing him knocks him down inside the front door and stabs him in the chest, killing him. Dan's body is later seen outside on the ground, having been dragged from the house and further mutilated by a separate Wolf.
- Aaron (Indirectly Caused)
Aaron left his backpack at Del Arno Foods, which causes to lead the wolves to Alexandria.
When the Wolves attack the Alexandria Safe-Zone, Dan is one of the residents killed while trying to escape.
This list shows the victims Dan has killed:
- Possibly numerous amounts of zombies
- The names written on the memory wall corresponded to the filming of each death scene in "JSS." With this being said, John D. Ross' character is Dan.
- Similar to how the recurring extras killed off in "JSS" got their names, many of the stunt people who portrayed Alexandrians killed by the Wolves were named based off the first letter of their real name, such as Dan and John D. Ross.
