"Growing up in an isolated, broken community all your life, you tend to find creature comforts with broken people. It's hard to keep your morals when you cross people from similiar pasts. Often times than most they end up being worse people than you. I've had to leave and betray so many people I've looked out for, people I've loved, people I've helped, because broken people more times than most are past the point of salvation. Now all of the circumstances are in a grey zone. There is no good, there is no bad. There's just you, the people around you, what you know, and the cards you've been dealt. As if it was hard to pick your cards wisely then, It sure as shit isn't any easier now."

Dahl Proctor is a former Search and Rescue tech with the Canadian Air Force. Joining the air force at a young age after working as a wildland firefighter, he went through rigorous training with both the Canadian Army and elements of the US Military to become a pararescue unit. After 2 tours to Afghanistan during 2006 and 2007, he was deployed to Chernarus in 2009 during the height of the civil war with a humanitarian contingency of the Canadian Armed Forces, where he was apart of a UN operation in recovering mass graves and identifying victims of genocide by the Chedaki.
Dahl remained stationed in Chernarus with NATO forces following the war until being deployed subsequently to Takistan, again apart of a humanitarian contingency with the CDF's peacekeeping mission. He and his squadron were assigned for humanitarian logisticals, delivering supplies and aid to villages affected by the conflict as well as manning field hospitals. Dahl's division returned back to Canada close to the conclusion of NATO's mission to Takistan, where he spent a few years re-adapting to civilian life, choosing to work with the Canadian Coast Guard in search and rescue in his home province.
During his interperiod as a civilian, Dahl developed mid-stage laryngeal cancer. Following months of treatment and a short remission, he developed laryngeal cancer yet again, which ended in him having extensive damage to his larynx, hindering his ability to speak properly. The next 2 years of his life would be put on hold as Dahl went through physiotherapy. During this period he also learned American sign language. Dahl was honorarily discharged from the Canadian Army, being promoted to Master Corporal during his treatment for his endeavors in Takistan and Chernarus.
It wasn't long before the CAF would be re-deployed to Chernarus along with US Forces, with World War 3 being on the brink, Canada deployed all of it's reservists to assist their Southern ally. Continuing his efforts in Search and Rescue and humanitarian efforts back home, he decided to return to Chernarus amidst the crisis under the ICRC. Now a civilian in Chernarus, Dahl was treading grounds he once tread as a soldier. And with a quickly waning situation in South Zagoria, he found himself filling mass graves in the same places he unearthed them. When all hope was lost, Dahl was left stranded in South Zagoria. While his initial intentions were to try to help civilians left in the fallout of the infection, his good morale has diminished as the days go by.
Overwhelmed by trust issues and becoming increasingly reclusive due to events and encounters during his time in Chernarus, Dahl lives a nomadic lifestyle and generally steers away from other people unless he has some sort of business with them. Because of this, he's picked up being a courier and informateur for people in and outside of South Zagoria. He frequently travels between South Zagoria and Novigrad delivering medicine, food, and ammo.
