Dante Knox is a well-known Mercenary on the island Panau, being regarded as one of the greatest pilots of all time with one of the highest air-to-air kills in history. Beginning his life on the island as a common criminal, he soon made a bold statement with his unpredictability, laid-back attitude and spurts of insanity. Dante is witty and extremely confident however can quickly turn into a merciless, cold-blooded killer in combat - with his poor mental health and drug dependency to contribute.

Well known for smoking, taking drugs and drinking alcohol; Dante has surprisingly good fitness but poor physical and mental health. With a high drug dependency threatening his life at any moment, Knox is continuously trying to make the next score to fuel his greed. Dante is highly regarded as a soldier across the nation of Panau though is known for his lack of loyalty to any faction due his lust for money. It is reported that he hasn't been Sober since being on the island.

He is currently living his in Pocumtuk Nomad RV where several investigations have led to the possibility of him utilising it for mobile drug production. However it is reported that he also has ownership and residence in the hidden ██████ ████████ Compound where similar activities have being going on.


Dante is recognised easily by his extremely tattooed body. His entire body is covered in tattoos to a degree, notably around his face, chest and fingers. He has "DRUG LORD" written across 8 of his shared knuckles, 3 Sleeping Z's by his right eye and "FAMOUS" in bright pink written under his left eye. The rest of his body from the neck down is covered in different designs and patterns.

This mercenary is considered handsome, though with the effects of drug dependency extremely visible with bags under his eyes. He is usually seen with a freshly groomed haircut with short sides and messy black hair. Dante usually wears the latest designer garments. Some notable brands he flaunts from the west includes; Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Balenciaga, Supreme and Bape.


Investigators have found that before Panau, Dante was a Marksman in the ███ as a █████ ██████ back in his homeland. He went AWOL after a fatal mission in Operation-███ which was conducted in ██████████.

On arrival to Panau, Knox joined the Roaches beginning his criminal career and starting his occupation as a mercenary. Residing there for sometime, he reached the rank of Hitman █████ █ before he went undercover into the Government. Dante successfully infiltrated the peace keeping organization known as the ████████████ becoming their █████. Once infiltrated, Dante was highly regarded for his combat skills and inducted into the Enforcers. Maximizing his Sharpshooting potential, he became a Major Marksman. After a further accident on a convoy escort - Dante defected to the Reapers where the ideology of equal pay regardless of occupation enticed his lazy personality. He learnt to fly #//>codename: PHANTOM# during his time here and maintained his loyalty to the faction; gaining the rank of ███████ Pilot I. Once the money began to run dry, the Ular Boys inducted Dante into their ranks as a highly prized soldier on the battlefront. His consistent performance on the front-line earned him the rank of █████ ████.

Since then Dante has moved to the highest paying faction to satisfy his greed and fuel his drug addiction.


██████████ - Knox joined this organization during it's early development. A highly renowned terrorist organization, he was known as "WRATH" though his loyalty to the organization was questionable leading up to the events that caused the fall of the ████████ ███.
███████ - A later member of this organization, Dante was well regarded as an expert pilot and ground combatant. He was inducted as an operative and fought vigorously alongside his fellow agents.


Dante owns a large variety of vehicles to navigate around Panau and cause havoc. They include;

Si-47 Leopard - nicknamed "Big Bertha" or known by his callsign; ███████ - Dante Knox is regarded as one of the best pilots to have set foot on Panau. With one of the highest air-kills on the entire island and his near-invincibility, he is the apex predator of the sky and the ace of all pilots. His Leopard is noticeable by Shark Jaws painted on the nose of the aircraft. It is armed with 2 mini-guns firing 7.62 stealth anti-aircraft machine gun rounds to accompany a dual set of Zuni Rocket Pods. There are few who match his skill whilst he occupies this aircraft.

______________________


Sakura Aquila Metro ST - nicknamed "Bubblegum" is Dante's personal favourite vehicle of choice. This vehicle has been illegally modified to be turbo charged with Nitrous Oxide, the engine from a Mancini Cavallo 1001 and other illegal street racing modifications. Other minor modifications include a body-kit, worn Supreme stickers on the rear bumper and a sub-woofer in the trunk of the vehicle. It is recognisable by it's light aqua blue "bubblegum" colour.


As a mercenary, Dante has an almost limitless armoury to choose from. However his personal favourites include;

L85A2 LSW - referred to as the "Bullseye Assault Rifle" - Knox uses this weapon for long range engagements. It's versatility with extreme accuracy and semi-automatic fire rate with a magazine size of 30; he is able to snipe his enemies from afar. It is customised with a x4 ACOG scope, longer barrel to accommodate for the ranges and incendiary ammunition for vehicles.

M4A1 - a standard Assault Rifle, Dante uses this weapon for it's all round effectiveness at different ranges. Whilst its only customisation is a bright pink paint job, it remains a personal favourite of his.

______________________


Milkor MGL - a personal favorite weapon of choice for Dante. A mixture of 40mm Grenades and an incendiary grenade to compliment his primary weapon - he has seen to have caused mass destruction with this hard-hitting explosives weapon.

IMI Desert Eagle - a fearsome side-arm pistol which Dante more regularly wields. Platinum plated with his different patterns and designs, this is his family heirloom. It is extremely hard-hitting and a formidable side-arm arm to accompany his primary weapon.

The most recent picture of Dante Knox.

After consuming an ungodly amount of methamphetamine during a small vacation with his partner in crime Levander Gale, Dante temporarily damaged a good portion of his Central Nervous System rendering him completely ineffective in combat. Abandoning his career as a mercenary, he founded Panau Ocean Records and found fame as a hip-hop artist. Dante dug up most of his expansive drug and money reserves that he had hidden around Panau to live a quieter lifestyle.

It is rare to see this legendary pilot but he is occasionally spotted driving his expensively furnished Pocumtuck Nomad (in which he lives in) around the island, selling and taking psychoactive substances to his heart's content with a bottomless pocket of cash.

It is rumored that Dante Knox's most treasured possessions (including his Si-47 Leopard, personal vehicles and weapons) are stored in a hidden safehouse on Panau. The location is unknown but is thought to contain items of both extreme value and interest.
