Dalton Weathers first began his foreign work on oil rigs in the Middle east. The work was dangerous, and the Locals hated the Americans working in their homeland. It was on one of these jobs he was offered another job, one that sounder easier yet was for the same pay. Mining in Chernarus. A few mining companies in Chernarus had started outsourcing some American workers, and through Daltons connections in the oil company, he was given first opportunity to join up. When the apocalypse hit, Dalton had no one. No family, no friends, he was totally alone. Yet the second part of his life all started with Thomas and Samuel. 3 Months into the Apocalypse, Dalton Weathers met two teenage brothers. An older one, Samuel Smith, and his younger brother, Thomas Smith. They were starving, and Dalton, having a heart, needed to get them food, but he didn't have any to spare. So he made a choice. He robbed someone for the first time. The adrenaline rush was incredible. Although he did it for the kids, he loved it, the rush, the fight or flight. He needed to do it again. So he did it again. and then again. and again. And soon enough, Dalton, Thomas, and Samuel were robbing everyone they came across. It became not even about the food, it was the rush, they didn't need to do it anymore, but they wanted to. So they did. Recruiting along the way, the band of misfits expanded, and Daltons gang was born.
