Dane, along with his sister, attended the Scholomance and eventually became a Centurion. He became part of Zara Dearborn's inner circle and took part in backing up Zara's claims of victories, to improve her reputation, which could in turn further push the Cohort's movement.
Dane was among the Centurions sent to Los Angeles in 2012 to search for Malcolm Fade's body and the Black Volume of the Dead, which went missing at sea. They stayed at the Los Angeles Institute and clashed with the residents, particularly for their connection with Downworlders.
At the Council meeting for Annabel Blackthorn's testimony, Dane noticed Samantha getting into a quickly escalating argument with Mark, Helen, and Aline and was about to join to back her sister up, only to be stopped by Manuel Casales to prevent the Centurions from getting into a brawl so publicly. During Annabel's testimony, Dane was among those who questioned her reliability.
Dane, like his sister, has a thin, whippety face with pale skin, and straight black hair.
